Protandim Nrf2 Gene Activator>Nrf2 is one of the key proteins in the body and regulates approximately 3000 of the 25,000 genes in the body often referred to as "survival genes". Protandim helps your body wake up, balance and regulate its genes by "turning some up" or "turning some down!" This metabolic pathway is how it turns on your bodys own enzymes.
There are three categories of survival genes:
* Antioxidant enzymes (like SOD and catalase, also glutathione)
* Anti-inflammatory genes (fight the process of inflammation in the body)
*Anti-fibrotic genes (fight the process of scar tissue formation in the body; although scar tissue formation is helpful when you have a cut, scar tissue formation can be fatal if it occurs in the heart and lungs.)
Protandim is founded in breakthrough science and is backed by peer reviewed clinical studies. Studies show Protandim increases levels of the anti-aging enzymes:
Superoxide Diase by 30%
Catalase by 54%
Glutathione by 300%
Protandim reduces oxidative stress levels (free radical damage) an average of 40% in just 30 days!
