Protandim is antioxidant dietary supplement studied and advocated by Dr. Joe McCord (The father of Free Radical Biology). Protandim is recognized for its ability to activate the body's natural power to reduce age-related symptoms on the cellular level. It's has also been acknowledged for its ability to reduce oxidative stress by an average of 40 percent within a 30 day time frame.
The Nrf2 science behind Protandim works by upregulating endogenous antioxidant factors such as the enzymes superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase, as well as the tripeptide glutathione. This essentially means that it works with human DNA to produce "a biochemical wake-up call to our genes". Healthy foods, especially fruits and vegetables, provide antioxidants. However Protandim will kick up your body’s production of antioxidants more effectively by activating the protein Nrf2, which hyper activates our cells to activate more antioxidant enzymes and protective genes.
