Protandim Ingredients claims this power house pill that fights antioxidants like some antioxidant super hero? Let us see if they can prove this? Protandim claims it has 5 all natural botanicals that are safe providing you or your loved one are not allergic to these five Herbs.
Green tea extract; is in energy drinks, teas, supplements other popular drinks. Not a main ingredient in Protandim but helps complement the others 4 botanicals. Everyone knows that green tea does well with weight loss and helps speed up the metabolism.
Green tea can cause side effects in some people (rare), such as stomach issues or just sleep problems, but its pretty low, most people do just fine, and its been used for centuries.
Bacopa; been known to man for many hundreds of year if not thousands. Benefits from Bacopa are great for an anxiety, along with helping people’s memory. 150mg of Bacopa in Protandim ingredients.
Milk Thistle; is sometimes used as a natural treatment for liver problems. These liver problems include cirrhosis, jaundice, hepatitis, and gallbladder disorders. Some claim milk thistle may also provide heart benefits by lowering cholesterol levels. Help diabetes in people who have type 2 diabetes and cirrhosis, reduce growth of cancer cells in breast, cervical, and prostate cancers. Good for liver detoxifying the seeds have been used for treatment for liver disorders for thousands of years. Protandim has 225mg
Ashwagandha herb – also known as Indian winter cherry – is a shrub cultivated in India and North America whose roots have been used for thousands of years by Ayurvedic practitioners. The root contains Flavonoids and many active ingredients. Several studies over the past few years have looked into whether this herb has anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-stress, and antioxidant, mind-boosting, immune-enhancing and rejuvenating properties. Historically Ashwagandha root has also been noted to have sex-enhancing properties. Many people notice a relaxing effect within hours of taking a 500 mg pill. 150mg in Protandim.
Turmeric (Curcumin) Extremely safe; however in very rare cases people can be allergic. It’s been used for thousands of years from cooking to a medicinal herb. In very large dosages it can be a mild blood thinner, but in the dosage in Protandim it’s not going to do anything. When you eat a curry dish you eat more Turmeric than what is in Protandim.
People would have to consume over 86 glasses of red wine or eat 365 oranges to have the same antioxidant dosage as one Protandim tablet. Protandim ingredients, also lowers C-reactive protein levels within the body. By lowering these protein types, risks of developing hypertension, high blood sugar and cardiovascular disease are reduced. Protandim also works to produce the enzyme, Glutathione, an important anti-inflammatory that can reduce joint pain. Dr Oz did this whole thing on, Glutathione and is amazing.
Dr. McCord started with 41 ingredients when starting the research for Protandim, most were removed because they were not entirely safe, and the candidate ingredients were deemed safe, the above 5 made the cut. Some herbs that were used didn’t add anything to the Nrf2 effect, so they were simply not included, they were not needed.
Protandim ingredients that I have found would have to say they are “all natural.”
