What Is Oxidative Stress?

oxidative stressWhat is Oxidative Stress?

Oxidative Stress is inevitable for all individuals and is generated through basic life processes such as breathing, eating, sleeping, and exercising.  Oxidative stress occurs when our cells generate dangerous byproducts known as free radicals. Free radicals arise from both internal and external sources, including breathing, metabolism, pollution, sunlight, exercise, smoking and consuming alcohol. Free radicals roam the body and ultimately destroy healthy cells. Oxidative Stress is physiological imbalance between free radicals and the body’s antioxidant defense system.

Science has discovered that oxidative stress may very well be the cause of over 70 well-known, widely-spread diseases. Depending on what form of toxin or stress your body is exposed to on an ongoing basis, you could find yourself suffering from diseases that could be prevented if only you’d have minimized the harmful free radicals in your system. Here are just a few of the diseases caused by oxidative stress:

  • Heart Disease
  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Lung Disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Diabetes
  • Neurodegenerative Diseases (Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s)
  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • Eye Diseases like Macular Degeneration

How to Neutralize Free Radicals

So how do we minimize the harmful damage of these free radicals? The easiest and most efficient way to do this is through Nrf2 activation. Protandim is a patented, science-based product and is the most important supplement of our time. Protandim is an Nrf2 synergizer that neutralizes the free radicals in our body, ultimately minimizing oxidative stress. This product activates Nrf2, a protein messenger that is the master regulator of the body’s aging process. Once activated, Nrf2 communicates with the cells in our body and instruct them to do what they are already designed to do: Up-regulate “survival genes” and Down-regulate other genes that promote inflammation to help the body function at an optimal level.

Protandim is the only supplement proven in a clinical study to reduce cellular stress by an average of 40% in 30 days. The Product contains 5 ingredients including: Milk Thistle Extract, Turmeric Extract, Green Tea Extract, Ashwagandha, and Bacopa Extract. This patented concoction has been shown to increase superoxide dismutase (important antioxidant defense in nearly all cells exposed to oxygen) levels by 30%, glutathione by 300%, and catalase by 54%. In 30 days, lipid peridoxation in an older person was reduced to the level of a 20 yr old.

Protandim supplementation activates the Nrf2 protein, ultimately leading to your body producing its own protective antioxidant enzymes. These enzymes neutralize more than 1million free radicals that would eventually cause oxidative stress, ultimately slowing down/reverse aging process and minimize risk of adverse health conditions. Not only does this product help reduce the risk of disease; it also significantly improves athletic performance. The Real Salt Lake professional Soccer team takes and promotes Protandim, as well as many other professional athletes from snowboarders to marathoners. Not only do studies prove an increase in strength through Protandim supplementation, but also an increase in endurance as well.
