For years scientists have been exploring the idea of extending ‘healthy lifespan’ – ie what it is happens in the body which leaves us looking gray and wrinkly, feeling tired and weak.  What if there was a supplement which could extend life?

The National Institute of Aging (NIA) is a division of the US National Institutes of Health (NIH).  The NIA with its federally funded research, leads a broad scientific effort to understand the nature of aging and to extend the healthy, active years of life.  In 1974, Congress granted authority to form the NIA to provide leadership in aging research, training, health information dissemination, and other programmes relevant to aging and older people.

Why am I telling you this?  Well, out of the 1000s upon 1000s of herbal supplements, manufactured by some very big brands, the NIA chose ONE supplement to do a ten year study on longevity and was found to do just this!  Imagine that: out of all the tens of thousands of supplements available in the US, the NIA chose Protandim!

Why did they study Protandim?  Because previous studies showed that Protandim:

  • provides strong Nrf2 activation (Nrf2 regulates the expression of antioxidant proteins that protect against oxidative damage triggered by inflammation)
  • increases superoxide dismutase (SOD) – SOD is an important defence mechanism in nearly all living cells
  • protects the heart from oxidative stress

This is truly significant in the fight for good health in old age!

More information on Protandim is available here.
