Biohack Your Healthspan
When Big Pharma told an entire industry to zig, we were introduced to a company, Lifevantage, that zagged. Now they are using a groundbreaking new science called Nutrigenomics to help people biohack a healthier life. By studying the effects of nutrients and natural compounds on our genes, Lifevantage created scientifically-backed products that support cognitive health and promote healthy aging on the cellular level.
Their Nutrigenomic products support the body’s natural cellular function by targeting the main biochemical effects of aging, issues like oxidative stress, natural mitochondrial deterioration and more. By awakening your body’s ability to rejuvenate itself on a massive scale — whether by up-regulating your genes’ ability to produce their own antioxidants, your cells‘ ability to produce mitochondria, or your guts’ ability to regulate bacteria — we’re helping you stay on top of the aging process while delivering the mental clarity and overall well-being you need every day to get the absolute most out of life. Lifevantage's revolutionary flagship product is called Protandim.
Protandim Unleashes Powerful Antioxidant Enzymes to Protect Cells
Protandim’s specific formula activates the Nrf2 protein, also known as a “master regulator” of the body’s stress response. Protandim stimulates this protein, resulting in the body producing its own powerful, protective antioxidant enzymes: superoxide dismutase, heme-oxygenase, glutathione peroxidase and catalase.
These enzymes function as potent antioxidants capable of neutralizing more than one million free radicals or reactive oxygen species. It’s the synergy of ingredients in Protandim that are effective in activating the Nrf2 pathway. There are other benefits of Nrf2 activation beyond cellular protection. Protandim helps the body repair and rejuvenate its own cells and detoxify genes, keeping the master blueprint of the cell’s function intact.
Protandim is the only supplement proven in a clinical study to reduce oxidative stress by an average of 40% in 30 days. Protandim has been shown to increase superoxide dismutase levels by 30%, glutathione by 300%, and catalase by 54%. When individuals were supplemented with Protandim for 30 days, the age-dependent increase in lipid peroxidation was completely eliminated. Lipid peroxidation in an older subject was reduced to the level of a 20-year-old. This means the body is not only capable of making its own antioxidant enzymes, but also that their production can be activated by Protandim to reduce cellular stress and may help protect against the aging process and several conditions in which cellular stress has been reported to be a contributing factor.
