Protandim: A Game-Changing Supplement
I was asked today at our run in Central Mississippi to explain again a product called Protandim that Robin and I take* called Protandim and to release some information on its benefits for all of you.

What is Protandim?
Technically speaking, Protandim is a supplement that is a “Nrf2 activator”. It is the only supplement clinically proven to reduce oxidative stress by an average of 40%, slowing down the cell aging process to the level of a 20 year-old.**
What is Oxidative Stress?
According to Wikipedia, “Oxidative stress represents an imbalance between the production and manifestation of reactive oxygen species and a biological system’s ability to readily detoxify the reactive intermediates or to repair the resulting damage.”
In plain English… when our bodies burn energy (from eating, breathing, exercising, living, etc.) our cells produce exhaust molecules. Those exhaust molecules are called “free radicals” and while we are young, our bodies produce millions of enzymes that gobble up those “free radical toxins” and function as a catalytic converter.
As we exit our 20’s, the Nrf2 pathways begin to misfire and our body begins the rapid decline in the production of those enzymes and the “free radical toxins” begin to increase in number resulting in “free radical damage”. The basic “rusting” of our cells opens the door for disease states and we experience some of the downsides of the aging process (youth is wasted on the young!).
In humans, oxidative stress is involved in many diseases. Examples include Sickle Cell Disease, atherosclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, heart failure, myocardial infarction, Alzheimer’s disease and chronic fatigue syndrome. Oxidative stress is not a good thing!
While conventional or direct antioxidants can neutralize only one free radical molecule, Protandim triggers the creation of the enzymes (we made naturally when we were young) that can each eliminate over a million free radical molecules per second without being used up.
Why Is This Important To You?
While training for a marathon and exercising intensely, you are actually burning more energy and creating a larger “free radical footprint”. Since Marathon Makeover participants are on average 43 years old, our bodies are now ALL in a state of oxidative stress (more free radicals than your body can eliminate) and we need something to reduce the free radical damage.
The common approach is to take in direct antioxidants, and although they do have a scientific impact, the impact is miniscule because, as stated above, direct antioxidants can only eliminate one free radical for every antioxidant molecule we take in. It is like taking a squirt gun to a house fire and expecting to save the house – it’s not going to happen. Taking too many antioxidants can actually harm you, as well.
The New Paradigm Solution
Protandim is not an antioxidant – it is antioxidant therapy. This supplement turns on your body’s production of millions of your natural, God-given enzymes that eliminate “free radical toxins” at a rate of 1 million free radicals per second, 24 hours a day for the life cycle of the enzyme. It’s like installing a sprinkler system in your house to combat the house fire – the house is not destroyed.
Backed Up By Science
Protandim is being studied extensively by over 26 universities in 6 countries and has already had 8 peer-reviewed studies released. These studies are housed on the U.S. National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health website HERE
In these studies, researchers have also discovered that Protandim up-regulates the body’s production of anti-inflammatory enzymes and anti-fibrotic enzymes while down-regulating the production of the pro-flammatory enzymes. Your body’s production of glutathione (Dr. Oz says that it is the most important enzyme that no one knows about) is also increased by 300% by taking 1 Protandim pill a day. Glutathione is responsible for fighting chronic disease and fatigue and aiding in recovery/muscle repair from strenuous activity.
Both Robin and I have been taking Protandim since March (Mark) and April (Robin). Here are the additional, noticeable benefits we have experienced.
Mark – (1) After three weeks, I began falling asleep in under 15 minutes and having a more restful sleep. This is significant because I used to take a Benadryl pill nightly to go to sleep and it would take 45-60 minutes to fall asleep. (2) I have experienced faster recovery from my training runs and significantly reduced muscle soreness post long run.
Robin – (1) For the first time in seven years, Robin is running without any knee pain – and she has tried it all with no relief. (2) Robin is falling asleep faster and finally sleeping through the night restfully and waking up with energy.
