Scientific research has validated oxidative stress—damage to your body’s cells by free radicals—as the root cause, at the cellular level, of aging. In fact, studies show that metabolic wear and tear caused by free radicals in cells accelerates aging, the problems associated with aging and contributes to more than 100 health conditions.

And here is one from LSU that found that taking Protadim reduces skin cancer tumors! This study made us decide to start giving our dog, Sky, a half a pill every day. He is 8 years old and a few years old started getting those skin tabs and little beningn skin cancer tumors, that usually turn worse as the age. I will keep you all posted if we notice a decrease in size and amount.
So what exactly is in it? And how does it work?
The ingredients are: Milk Thistle, Green Tea, Bacopa, Ashwagandha and Turmeric. Click here for a description of each ingredient from the LifeVantage website.
Here’s how it works:
The vast majority of antioxidant supplements sold today are “direct antioxidants”. Direct antioxidants attempt to neutralize free radicals through direct consumption of antioxidant pills, juices, or other products. These products of highly concentrated levels of vitamin A, C and E were previously thought to effectively eliminate free radicals, but scientists are now realizing the limitations of direct antioxidants. In fact, you would need to consume the antioxidants found in 375 oranges or 87 glasses of red wine or about 120 vitamin C tablets (500mg) a day to neutralize the amount of free radicals your body produces every single day.
With the recognition of the ineffectiveness of direct antioxidants comes the realization that there must be a better way. And as is often the case in science, the better way has come to light as we have found a variety of naturally occurring safe products that signal your cells’ DNA to produce your own natural defenses.
The unique blend of phytonutrients in Protandim signal your body’s genes to produce special antioxidant enzymes, SOD (superoxide dismutase) and CAT (catalase), that work together as the body’s first line of defense against free radicals.* These enzymes are “catalytic”, which means that SOD and CAT are not used up when they neutralize free radicals. A single daily caplet of Protandim creates a cascade of your body’s natural catalytic antioxidants that are able to destroy millions of free radicals per second, on a continuous
basis – 24/7.*
