Protandim has been around for a number of years now and we’ve received a few questions from our readers about the product lately, so we decided to do a review.
What is Protandim
Protandim is an anti-aging supplement that is designed to reduce oxidative stress in the body. Oxidative stress, often caused by free radicals, is thought to be one of the main causes of cellular aging. Many experts believe if you can reduce oxidative stress and free radical damage you’ll slow down the effects of aging. Clinical trials (peer reviewed, human trials) of Protandim found that the product reduced oxidative stress by up to 40% which is very impressive and could be a significant breakthrough in anti-aging science.
How does Protandim Work?
Protandim is a unique formulation of ingredients that is much more powerful than any food, even ‘Super foods’ such as blueberries, juices or grapes that are known to contain high levels of antioxidants. Protandim contains special phytonutrients that stimulate your body to produce special naturally occurring antioxidant enzymes which act as a barrier against free radicals. Just one capsule of this product is capable of neutralized millions of free radicals that would otherwise have been active within your body, potentially causing oxidative stress.

What are Free Radicals?
Many people have heard about Free Radicals but are not exactly sure what they are, how they get in to our bodies and what impact they have on our health. Essentially free radicals are unstable molecules (similar to the ones that cause rust – its like your body rusting inside!) that attack healthy cells in the body, your body creates these unstable free radicals when you:
- Breathe in toxins and pollutants in the air
- Get stressed, rushed or your body is out of balance
- Physical strain (e.g. exercise)
- Eat foods especially those that contain pesticide residue or artificial (and some natural ) colors, preservatives or flavourings
- Drink alcohol
- Take modern medicines or other drugs
- Exposure your skin to the sun
Its impossible to avoid Free Radicals completely, however modern diets and lifestyles mean that we are exposing ourselves to higher levels of oxidative stress than ever before. As we get older our body produces more free radicals and less of the special antioxidants needed to combat them leading to more oxidative stress and therefore faster aging. Protandim aims to rectify that balance by stimulating the body to produce the antioxidants needed to fight the free radicals.
Protandim is completely natural and contains a range of high quality ingredients which have been scientifically formulated by a very experienced and well respected team, which includes Dr. Joseph McCord, winner of the 1997 Elliott Cresson Medal. The main ingredients are Milk Thistle Extract, Bacopa Extract, Ashwagandaha, Green Tea & Turmeric.
Usually the only reason someone would experience side effects would be if they were allergic to a particular ingredient contained in the product.
Protandim is probably the only anti-aging supplement that has gone through a series of peer reviewed human clinical trials, to show a 40% reducing on oxidative stress after using the product is very impressive. We all want to slow down the signs and effects of aging and it seems like Protandim could be an effective way of doing this naturally and safely. We’ve also heard some great testimonials and feedback about the product. If you’ve tried it or know anything about the product we’d love to hear your thoughts below.
