New Paradigm in Health and Aging Featured on ABC Primetime News
The Aging problem…
There’s nothing like a new car, and you never forget the day your drive your first one off the lot. But eventually your new car ages, the catalytic converter becomes less effective, the exhaust isn’t very clean, things begin to rust and the engine suffers wear and tear.
Our cells are like car engines. They have the same combustion process, produce some of the same byproducts and clean up with similar catalytic converters. When we’re young, our enzymes (our cells’ catalytic converters) function well and do a good job cleaning the toxic byproducts our bodies generate. But unfortunately, like cars, our bodies don’t always function like new. As we age, our bodies produce more free radicals and less of the special enzymes that fight free radicals causing oxidative stress. The damage by oxidative stress leads to the symptoms of aging.
We obtain energy by burning fuel with oxygen-that is, by combining digested food with oxygen from the air we breathe. This is a controlled metabolic process that, unfortunately, also generates dangerous byproducts. These include free radicals-electronically unstable atoms or molecules capable of stripping electrons from any other molecules they meet in an effort to achieve stability. In their wake they create even more unstable molecules that attack their neighbors in domino-like chain reactions. This causes toxic effects that damage all components of the cell, including proteins, lipids and DNA.
What is oxidative stress?
Oxidative stress represents an imbalance between the production of oxygen and the body’s ability to detoxify and repair the damage caused at the cellular level. In other words, although we need oxygen to live, high concentrations of it are actually corrosive and toxic.
While one antioxidant molecule can fight only one or two free radicals before it is depleted, the body’s free radical-fighting enzymes can each eliminate up to 1 million molecules per second, every second. The most effective way to fight free radicals and the oxidative stress they cause is to trigger the body to produce its own free radical-fighting enzymes. Protandim activates the body’s natural enzymes that substantially reduce free radicals.
How Protandim works…
Our bodies already contain the information how to effectively combat stressful situations, such as oxidative stress and chronic inflammation. That information is stored in our genes. The secret lies in being able to instruct cells regarding the implementation of that information. Enter Protandim.
Protandim, the most potent and the only commercially available Nrf2 Synergizer dietary supplement, induces cells to produce more of the genetically encoded catalytic defense systems. Every enzyme molecule produced by this approach can eliminate up to 1 million free radicals per second, every second.
Protandim achieves this feat by activating a signaling molecule called Nrf2, the master regulator of the body’s aging process. Nrf2 can switch on protective genes and switch off genes that may have a negative effect on health.
When this protein messenger, Nrf2, is activated, it enters the nucleus of every cell and turns on hundreds of the body’s survival genes. These genes enable cells to survive in the face of several different kinds of stress, especially oxidative stress. Nrf2 also affects hundreds of other genes, pro-inflammatory and pro-fibrotic genes, by turning them down.
Thus Protandim, a master regulator of the aging process and an Nrf2 synergizer, activates survival genes, including antioxidant genes that keep us safe from free radicals and oxidants. It also turns down genes that perpetuate inflammation and genes that encourage slow, progressive fibrosis to take place. Together these actions provide a remarkable promise of protections from many kinds of age-related health conditions.
