A Nutritional Supplement That Helps Diabetes?
Comprised of natural plant ingredients, Protandim is a new, patented, science-based formula that has been researched, tested and validated by renowned universities and institutions. It is the only supplement clinically proven to reduce oxidative stress in humans by an average of 40 percent in 30 days.
Oxidative stress, generated through the process of living life (eating, sleeping, breathing, exercising), is inevitable for everyone, but LifeVantage has the solution: Protandim, the Nrf2 Synergizer, the most important dietary supplement of our time.
Protandim activates Nrf2, which communicates with cells, instructing them to do what they're already designed to do: up-regulate "survival genes," genes that enable cells to survive in the face of stress from free radicals and other oxidants, and down-regulate other genes that promote inflammation and fibrosis to help the body function at an optimal level.
What Does That Mean?
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.
High levels of free radicals turn on a specific protein in the cell’s nucleus called Nrf2. Activation of Nrf2 essentially opens the door for the production a vast array our body’s most important antioxidants. It is clear that excessive free radicals induce better antioxidant production through this pathway, but the obvious question is, what else activates Nrf2?
It turns out that a variety of foods are powerful activators of the Nrf2 pathway. While not necessarily rich in antioxidants, they directly and dramatically amplify our innate ability to produce vast antioxidant protection by signaling our DNA. In this way, specific molecules from Nrf2 activating foods can trigger the production of thousands of antioxidant molecules, providing far better protection against the brain-damaging effects of free radicals compared to standard antioxidant supplements.
How Can it Help My Diabetes?
Protandim acts on the molecular and cellular level to trigger the body to produce superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, glutathione and other enzymes that regulate anti-oxidants also known as free radicals. These enzymes naturally decrease as we age. These free radicals, while necessary in small amounts, cause tremendous damage when they are not kept in check.
In people suffering from Diabetes, this oxidative stress can affect the kidneys (nephropathy), heart (cardiomyopathy), and nerves (neuropathy). Controlling oxidative stress in people with Diabetes can help reduce many of these negative effects. While the evidence is still building regarding Protandim’s effects on diabetes, it is undisputed that Protandim helps keep many of the negative effects of oxidative stress in check.
In A Nutshell...
• Protandim is a daily dietary supplement that combats oxidative stress through Nrf2 activation.
• Oxidative stress is inevitable for everyone.
• Protandim significantly reduces oxidative stress through Nrf2 activation.
• Nrf2 regulates survival genes.
