He had something called peripheral neuropathy in his toes. Basically, the nerve endings were dying off and he couldn’t wiggle his toes. After three weeks of taking one pill a day, of Protandim, he got all movement back! His and other stories I heard, of how Protandim made a huge difference, moved me enough to want to share the news and be a part of LifeVantage.
I didn’t start taking it at first, because LifeVantage’s official statement on taking Protandim while pregnant or nursing, was that you couldn’t. I was told it really was ok, but it was a liability issue, and the company couldn’t come out and say that it was. Kind of like how they slap, “consult your doctor first if you are pregnant or nursing” on EVERYTHING.
Later, they changed their official statement and said that it was ok, as long as you had approval from your Dr. So I showed my doctor some information on Protandim (and got the thumbs up from him), and also did a ton of research on my own-on each individual ingredient of Protandim (Milk Thistle, Turmeric, Ashwaganhda, Green Tea and Bacopa) and found out that all the ingredients are OK to take while breastfeeding. In fact, Milk Thistle and Turmeric are known to actually increase your milk supply!
I started out with half a pill because I wanted to monitor Penelope and see if she had any reactions to it. And sure enough, she did! Her Eczema got better! We have been battling eczema for months and months. I have tried every natural remedy and product out there, including taking her to acupuncture doctor to clear her of any food allergies that may or may not be causing her eczema and nothing was really helping. I even caved and put some topical steroids on it a couple of times, and that was the only thing that helped her until I started taking Protandim. I have since upped to one pill a day, and have also noticed a slight improvement in both Penelope and I’s overall sleep. She is sleeping slightly longer stretches and I am having an easier time falling asleep, staying asleep and sleep deeper. All very good things in my book!
