Comprised of natural plant ingredients, Protandim is a patented, science-based formula that has been researched, tested and validated, and published by renowned research institutions around the world.
Protandim is a daily food supplement that supports cellular health and wellbeing. It combines traditional ingredients that have been used to help support cellular health and general wellbeing:
- Black pepper
- Green tea
- Milk thistle
NATURAL PLANT INGREDIENTS
An article in the Mail Online details the healthiest herbs and spices and highlights two of the natural plant ingredients in Protandim, turmeric and black pepper. However, it’s the synergistic blend of the five botanicals in Protandim which lowers oxidative stress and it’s not something you can replicate at home in the kitchen.
Something else not to try at home is the recent celebrity craze for home-made turmeric face masks. The Mail Online also helpfully points out that unless you want a yellow face, it’s best to steer clear of this particular beauty fad!
SCIENCE AND PROTANDIM
First of all, you need to know that Dr. Joe McCord, the scientist behind Protandim, devoted his life to the role of free radicals and the problems associated with ageing. One of his discoveries, super oxide dismutase (SOD), is so significant it has been mentioned in over 50,000 peer-reviewed publications.
As a result, Dr. McCord was awarded the Elliott Cresson Medal from The Franklin Institute, presented to distinguished inventors and scientists. This puts Dr. McCord in the same company as Pierre and Marie Curie, Alexander Graham Bell, Orville Wright and Henry Ford.
