My Personal Protandim Story
In early 2013, at the insistence of a friend I started taking Protandim. I was somewhat skeptical that a supplement could do so much, but because I spent over 11 years working in Pharma, I did some research into the product. What I found was some evidence that the ingredients in Protandim might have some very positive effects. Not a wonder drug, mind you. Not a drug at all, but a specific blend of supplements that have a synergistic effect to enhance their activity.
I'm no stranger to supplements and their potential for positive impact. I served as the Project Manager and VP of Business Development for a health supplement company and led the research for a new product. That supplement, rather, a blend of supplements, were designed to have a synergistic effect. That positive impact was proved; by our competitor. Unfortunately we were slightly behind the curve on that research. However, it still showed we were on the right track. That product was never released to market for business reasons, but the impact of the research was clear. The relationships between supplements can have a positive impact on their effectiveness. We were focused on a very narrow range of benefits that did not have universal appeal. Our market segment was small. Protandim seems to support a broad range of healthy bodily functions. For an introduction to Protandim check out the video by Dr. McCord below.
Oh, are you wondering how Protandim is working for me? I've kept a blog to document how I've responded. The blog started as a way to self-document so I could make an informed decision whether I would continue to take Protandim. Spoiler alert: I have.
Protandim Quick Facts
Comprised of natural plant ingredients, Protandim is a patented, science-based, research-backed formula that has been 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.
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-regulates other genes to help the body function at an optimal level.
