Protandim with LifeVantage
Protandim with LifeVantage
For anyone that has followed my journey you will know that I am passionate about organic, whole foods, chemical free, fluoride free and anything that allows the body to heal itself holistically.
My personal story is a little more telling in why I have found this product. My mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer 4 years ago. I was pregnant with my 3rd daughter at that time and the news was quite a blow for all of us. She lived in a different state to me, so I spent a lot of that year travelling to see her, dragging my daughters with me. It was a traumatic time for all of us, but luckily my mother is strong and she came through the Operation, Chemo and Radiation, but we watched how it affected her energy, her self-esteem and her love for life. We watched her struggle with her own mortality and at the same time, I struggled with my fear to lose my mother. To add insult to injury, we had only just found her mothers death certificate from 40 years earlier, telling us she in fact died from breast cancer and we knew that Mum's grandmother had also succumbed to the disease. So with this disease so prevalent in our family genetics, and having 3 daughters of my own, I faced a fear like no other. A fear of unintentionally passing this onto my daughters and them having to go through this later in life. I didn't really even think of myself at that point. I just feared for my daughters. (Side note - I have since found out through my research that genetics doesn't play a role in Cancer - It is merely a symptom of our body in response to fighting off the pollutants and toxins that we are exposed to on a daily basis. This means that anyone can get it. If your cells decide they can no longer handle the fight, and they give up...... cancer is your cells response.)
So I went into action mode. I studied up on things that were known to be linked to cancer. Unfortunately this turned out to be nearly everything we use in our house and put into our bodies. Even our Water contained Fluoride which is a know neurotoxin linked to causing cancer.
I threw the chemicals in the house out, and I started buying organic or soaking our fruit in Apple Cider Vinegar to take away most of the chemicals. I bought Tesla Discs to rebalance the energy of our bodies and our food. I invested in a Zazen Water Filter which filtered out most of the Chlorine and Fluoride in our tap water and added the minerals back in. I Cleaned my house with all Norwex products and made my own cleaning spray with doTerra essential oil products. I changed my skincare to become as natural as possible. I started growing my own herbs, veggies and fruit and we bought our own chickens. And lastly I studied Life Coaching and Reiki, so I could help others to find a healthy way to heal their own bodies through controlling emotions and rebalancing energy.
Even after doing all of this, I felt myself still searching. After all, it feels almost impossible to eliminate everything detrimental to our health. All our food is packaged in plastic, all of our fruit and vegetables are sprayed with chemicals, and our water is laced in fluoride. The air is heavily polluted because our government refuse to do anything about recycled energy. There are a lot of factors beyond our control that add to our risk factors without us even knowing it.
I'm not sure why I was first attracted to the #littleyellowpill. I wasn't big into nutritional supplements, preferring whole foods, exercise and eliminating toxic chemicals out of my diet, so a pill wasn't something I was looking for.
Perhaps it was the philosophy of helping your own body to heal itself, or the results I saw from friends, or the fact that it was a product created by a doctor who WON a prestigious award for the invention but lacking in sales skills had no idea how to sell it to the world. Perhaps it was it's ALL natural ingredients in just the right patented quantity. Perhaps it was its independently scientifically peer reviewed reports that indicate an up to 7% increase in lifespan or its ability to eliminate free radicals running rampart creating oxidative stress (rust) in the cells of our bodies. Those very same free radicals that are linked to over 200 diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer's, MS, varicose veins, eczema and various other skin disorders.
Please note that legally we cannot say that Protandim helps any illness or ailment, but we can categorically say it helps reduce the oxidative stress which has been linked to these illnesses and ailments.
With its patented combination of ALL NATURAL products of 5 ingredients being Tumeric, Milk Thistle, Ashwaghanda, Bacopa and Green Tea this product is a stand out instantly. Anyone who has done their research on these products will know immediately that this product isn't just mucking around. It is talking serious business.
So How Does #littleyellowpill Work?
"Protandim, protected by six U.S. patents, is made of five potent botanicals and plays a key role in cellular fitness. With Protandim, the Nrf2 Synergizer, you know you’re doing all you can to prepare your body to withstand the effects of free radicals and cellular ageing"
Free radicals are rogue molecules with an unsatisfied electron pair. They roam the body in search of other compounds and molecules from which they can capture electrons in order to become stable. When free radicals steal electrons from other molecules, the attacked molecule itself becomes a free radical, starting a chain reaction that can damage cells, proteins and DNA.
The body deliberately makes free radicals in order to neutralize viruses and bacteria but the amount is kept in check through an elaborate system of enzymes and compounds (SOD, catalase, glutathione and the likes). However with the intrinsic process of aging, lifestyle choices and environmental factors (smoking, poor diet, pollution and radiation), the amount of free radicals exceed the body ability to deal with them.
Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to completely stop the production of these free radicals. The good news is the body is equipped with antioxidants to repel them. SOD and another enzyme called catalase, along with the tripeptide glutathione, are deployed to eliminate free radicals, and they do so very successfully.
Superoxide dismutase, better known as SOD, is an important antioxidant defense in nearly all cells exposed to oxygen. This enzyme was co-discovered by Dr. Joe McCord, scientist behind Protandim. Nrf2 turns on the production of SOD, which detoxifies the free radical superoxide.
Your body already contains the information it needs to effectively combat stressful situations and chronic inflammation. That information is stored in your genes. The secret lies in being able to instruct your cells regarding the implementation of that information. Protandim, the Nrf2 Synergizer, contains five ingredients known to scientists as Nrf2 activators. These five ingredients when combined have an 18-fold synergistic effect more than any of them have alone.

My husband and I started taking these tablets a month ago and we were not expecting anything, just using them like supplements. Firstly for 12 years I have had numbness in my feet caused by my Multiple Sclerosis, I have noticed that the numbness is nearly gone. My other half has suffered with psoriasis for over 25 years and has noticed that all of it has gone from under his nails and inside his ears. I think the main thing with these tablets is not to expect anything and see what happens. I am impressed with the feet more than anything.
Hey I want to say how amazingly great full I am for being introduced to protandim!!I started taking one pill a day about a month ago I suffer from a rare form of ulcerative psoriasis it is painful I have tried many drugs and treatments I was so very embarrassed to show my legs cause of these awful sores nothing was working to take them away!!Well now one month in and I have no sores left on my legs A BIG FAT 0!!! Just have to work on the scaring now!!!I am so happy the pain is gonethank you so much💕💕
I've been taking Protandim for a few months now and am feeling great. Before starting, I was a total wreck though. A bit of background: Six years ago, I was diagnosed with Graves' Disease-a thyroid disorder that continuously ramps up your adrenaline and metabolism. It eats up all the fat in you, then the muscle mass and lastly your organs before you die. The process can take years or months, depending on the person. According to my specialist, who was driving me around town for a week after diagnosing me, I should have had my heart blow out already. My heart was approaching 245 BPM and going up 5-8 a day. Anyways, I had my thyroid nuked but my body was so far gone that muscular recovery seemed impossible. Years passed and I got progressively worse. With no muscle-mass to hold my athletically-abused joints in place, my body literally fell apart.
This last summer, I was basically bed-ridden for three months. Getting out of bed, even to swing my legs out, typically meant my back, knees or ankles going out of joint. My feet and knees always felt like knives were in them... I decided that the pain wouldn't stop me and I would go through each day with a smile but I wasn't happy.
THEN! My great frien introduced me to Protandim. I began hope-filled and hopeful but keeping mild about what could happen. Two weeks went by-nothing. Three-nothin..... Wait a minute, my feet don't hurt today. Did I actually sleep last night?!My back is fine and my knees aren't in crippling pain. Maybe, I don't need shoulder surgery. I can play guitar pain-free again. I think I can see better-and way way way more.
Nowadays, I can FEEL my body changing. I'm now stretching in preparation to start running again. I haven't been able to run for over ten years.
This is the most important turning point in my life. Trust me, I went past the point where I thought I'd have all these issues for all time. I dealt with it all-even the hint at suicidal thoughts tried to creep their way in to my heart. It's an awesome day when you have looked the spirit of death square in the eye for a very long time and then grab it by it's throat and tell it to leave.
I learned there is hope. There is more to do. Somewhere, there is another me-someone God placed in this time to be given another shot to be their best. They too will dare to rise from the ashes and choose to live, inspire and celebrate each day like few can.
Today is a GOOD day!
So I was diagnosed with lupus 17 years ago when I was 17. Then was told I had sjorgrens syndrome as well. My saliva glands used to swell up like a baseball very painful that problem went away, in fact most of my problems went away except one. The one that has never went away was the purpura on my legs. Purpura is when the blood vessels leak blood and my legs would swell very very painful. This occurred when I exerted mental or physical stress on myself and drank alchohol. So I stopped drinking alchohol and for a bit it was ok then the past year and a bit it started happening when I sat to long uncomfortable, stood to long went to a movie, working late my legs would swell and turn red. I stopped taking my prescription meds cause honestly hated what they were and what they could cause for future me. Plaquenil can damage your eyes and another drug that was very strong that could cause a whole slew of problems. Anyway so recently the last 2 times I went to a movie my legs exploded and I had enough I remembered a friend asking me to like a link about protandim so I researched for about 3 weeks and said I'll dive in I had enough. Almost 3 weeks on protandim and the 2nd day my legs exploded for no reason assuming detox effect, the rest of that week couple red spots no swelling. Now almost 3 weeks in and yesterday I worked 12 hours and usually I'm limping and in pain but guess what nothing I came home with energy and for the first time in a long time I felt alive thank you little yellow pill. This pic is scarring from years of purpura and taken the first week on protandim. I would be shocked if the scarring goes away but you never know with this little pill. PS sorry for long read
Yes Protandim has changed my health completely. Lowered blood pressure, no more sinus allergies, pain in my hips and lower back, migraines, helping with my COPD, arthritis in my hands(wrists), my energy levels have risen by 50%, after 35yrs I'm sleeping thru the night and waking refreshed, not craving sugar fix....all of these issues for me are GONE💞 This is how this all natural pill has changed my life and I feel amazing
So, I was taking ibuprofen 800 2x daily for back pain and recently wrist pain from breaking my wrist. I have not taken anything for pain in about 10 days!!!
This is unbelievable for me--you take that away and some stomach issues also faded.
My energy level has increased which boosted my metabolism.
I lost 4lbs and 2"in.
I am also taken the Physiq fat burn product, but have not actually work out at a gym for a couple of weeks. However, I am very active. I'm trying to eat healthier but did not have bad eating habits.
The biggest change I saw was (this is gonna b very personal,) but I have had regular bowel movements the last two weeks which my system has been messed up for years.
I'm just saying people--i'm seeing changes. Imagine if I was working out regularly!
I used to have 4-5 migraines a month, with at least one lasting for more than 48 hours, despite medications. I'd have to go to the ER for those and get corticosteroid, narcotic and nausea medication injections, than sleep for up to 14 hours straight to get relief. I am currently down to one menstrual migraine a month!
I've also noticed that my depression issues are noticeably improved (especially by coworkers) and I am able to cope with highly stressful situations (I'm a nurse that works full time, help run a ranch and care for my mother who had a stroke 1.5 years ago) so much better.
Abdominal bloat is improved also, along with my chronic gastritis inflammation.
Sciatica is improving also.
My energy levels are up and my insomnia is down.
The only thing I changed about anything I am doing is adding Protandim NRF1 and NRF 2 synergizers.
All I can say is, WOW!!!
