Our Cells, Oxidative Stress, Nrf2 Activation
Our CELLS create FREE RADICALS when we EAT, BREATH and SLEEP, or perform any number of common ACTIVITIES. These free radicals are MOLECULES with an odd number of ELECTRONS. As such, they are highly REACTIVE and TOXIC, and cause CELLULAR deterioration, or OXIDATIVE STRESS. The older we get, the more oxidative stress our cells naturally produce. INFLAMMATION in CELLS also increases, as FIBROSIS (the formation of Scar Tissue).
Your body constantly reacts with OXYGEN as you BREATH and your CELLS produce energy. As a consequence of this activity, highly reactive molecules are produced within our CELLS known as FREE RADICALS and OXIDATIVE STRESS occurs. Oxidative Stress causes OXIDATIVE DAMAGE that has been implicated in the cause of MANY DISEASES and also has an IMPACT on the body’s AGING process.
Scientists have discovered a way to ACTIVATE AND ELEVATE the Nrf2 in our CELLS using Protandim, the trademarked Nrf2 Synergizer. Protandim is made from natural, planted – based ingredients that are weak nrf2 activators on their own: Milk Thistle, Turmeric, Green Tea, Bacopa and Ashwagandha. TOGETHER, Dr. Mccord says, they have a SYNERGY that is 18 TIMES greater than the sum of the individual components.
Every Protandim pill activates Nrf2, which in turn does it’s job of regulating the various GENES that make the body function at an optimal level. “By elevating or activating the Nrf2 in our cells, you can return that entire balance back to the way it is in a young, healthy person” Dr. McCord says. “We know biochemically exactly what Protandim is doing.”
Dr. Joe McCord, a world-renowned Scientist and pioneer in Free Radical Biology, is the scientist behind Protandim. He has devoted his life to the study of FREE RADICALS and their role in the many health conditions associated with AGING.
Nrf2 is a powerful protein that is latent within each CELL in the body, unable to move or operate until it is released by an Nrf2 activator. Once released it migrates into the cell nucleus and bonds to the DNA at the location of the Antioxidant Response Element (ARE) or also called HARE (Human Antioxidant Response Element) which is the MASTER REGULATOR of the total ANTIOXIDANT system that is available in ALL human cells.
The POWERFUL Synergy of Five Potent Plants Backed by Science
Protandim ACTIVATES our body's INTERNAL DEFENSES, our survival GENES, to do what they were created to do- PROTECT our cells from DAMAGE and DISEASE. Over time and around the age of 20, our genes, like the key of piano, get out of tune and no longer function at their peak performance: AGING and DISEASE result from this DISHARMONY.
