Oxidative Stress

  • An excess of free radicals causes oxidative stress.
  • Protandim is the most potent antioxidant therapy today.
  • Science articles demonstrate the importance of reducing oxidative stress.
  • In living life to the fullest our bodies generate oxidative stress–a physiological imbalance between free radicals and the body’s antioxidant defense system.

Protandim is the most powerful antioxidant therapy today.

Oxidative stress occurs when our cells generate dangerous byproducts known as free radicals. Free radicals, highly reactive molecules with unpaired electrons, roam the body in search of other electrons and in the process, seek out and destroy healthy cells.

Free radicals arise from both internal and external sources, including breathing, metabolism, pollution, sunlight, exercise, smoking and consuming alcohol.

Why Free Radicals are Harmful to the Body

Free radicals are highly unstable, reactive molecules with an unsatisfied electron pair. They scavenge the body in search of electrons, thereby damaging cells, proteins and DNA.

Free radicals arise from both internal and external sources, including breathing, metabolism, inflammation, pollution, sunlight, exercise, smoking and consuming alcohol.

Oxidative stress occurs when free radicals are inadequately neutralized by the body’s antioxidant defense system, or when they overwhelm antioxidants.

Protandim Activates the Antioxidant Defense

Superoxide dismutase, better known as SOD, is an important antioxidant defense in nearly all cells exposed to oxygen. Dr. Joe McCord former LifeVantage Chief Science Officer and scientist behind Protandim discovered this enzyme in 1969. SOD is turned on by Nrf2 and is made by most cells to detoxify superoxide, a compound that the immune system deploys to destroy invading microorganisms.
