What is Protandim and how can is solve MANY issues related to disease states!
Let’s go back to 9thgrade biology for just a second: Remember we all colored and labelled a cell with a cell membrane, nucleus and mitochondria (MITO).
In easy terms, the nucleus is the command center of the cell. It tells the cell to do everything basically. The MITO is the engine of the cell creating energy or ATP (remember that, Krebs’s cycle)
When we are born, we have a high number of Antioxidants (AO) and low amounts of Free Radicals (FR), which I like to call “cell destroyers”, we inherit from our mothers.
When we are born, we begin to breath O2, and the mitochondria uses that O2 to make energy. The byproduct of this process are FRs. As we age our AO go down and FR go up.
Because the MITO are busy creating energy the byproduct FR signficantly increases. FR attached themselves all over the cell, in the membrane, the nucleus even the MITO. This injures the cell. The body responds to injury by sending PRO-Inflammatory molecules. This creates scars. Scars then replace cells, Cells replace organs. To many scarred cells creates disease.
THIS is the start of the disease process. All disease! The excess production of FR over the cell’s ability to neutralize them with AO is called OXIDATIVE STRESS.
There is a protein NRF2 that is anchored within the cell. Its job is to send messages to the nucleus about the status of FR in the cell. Because it is anchored it cannot send the messages immediately. Because of this, FR have more time to accumulate. When the protein’s message finally arrives, the nucleus is triggered to make life saving enzymes and turn on the cell to produce antioxidants (which fight off all the FR). Typically, your cell can make millions of these AO per SECOND. There are no foods of any kind that can produce this amount of life saving antioxidants at the volume necessary for your cells. But since the message from the anchored NRF2 protein is late, the production is also behind.
So, what do we do? How can we support our bodies to function properly and SLOW this entire process? Protandim.
Protandim is a specifically blended ratio of 5 herbs (Milk Thisle, Bacopa, Ashwagandha, Green Tea, Turmeric) at a pharmacologically low dose that synergistically is 18x times more effective than the sum of each herb individually.
Protandim has over 25 peer reviewed studies that conclude, Protantim can reduce Oxidative Stress by 40%.
How does it work? Remember NRF2, Protandim actives the release of this protein to immediately send the message to the nucleus that we have too many FR and to start making AO (remember, millions per second). NRF1 activates the Mitochondria (which remember gets damaged by the FR it produces as a byproduct of making energy) to regulate the repair of itself. This helps to also increase the number of Mitochondria, make more energy and your make your cells more efficient. So, the synergy between the NRF1 and NRF2 with Protandim is the perfect balance to create a healthier, more efficient cell. Its a functioning, dysfunctional symbiotic relationship. Introducing NRF1 and NRF2 into the cell with Protandim, creates a continuous cirlce of resolve to truly function perfectly.
When your cells are healthy, you slow the disease process, you slow the aging process and allow your body to do exactly what its designed to do. Heal itself!
The wonderful part is that anything that breathes O2 can benefit. Yes there is even Petandim! There are literally no contraindications of any type, including medications you may already be taking. Again, remember the pharmacologically low dose, specific blend of herbs is what makes this possible.
