The master regulator of the aging process is known as Nrf2. Nrf2 is an age and disease-fighting transcription factor that has the ability to switch on protective genes and switch off genes that have a negative effect on health.
When this protein messenger, called Nrf2 is activated, it enters the nucleus of every cell and turns on several hundred of these 25,000 genes. The genes it turns on, or turns up, are known collectively as survival genes.
What are survival genes? Survival genes are genes that enable cells to survive in the face of several different kinds of stress, especially oxidative stress, due to the over production of free radicals and other oxidants.
Nrf2 also affects more than 100 other genes by turning them down, not up. Included in these genes are pro-inflammatory and pro-fibrotic genes.
Inflammation accompanies many different disease processes. Everyone is familiar with inflammatory diseases like arthritis, but any time you get a traumatic injury (sprain your ankle, bruise yourself) there is swelling, pain, and redness that characterize inflammation. The process of inflammation is designed, in part, to prevent infection. One of the ways your body prevents infection is to kill invading micro-organisms by intentionally making toxic free radicals. Thus the pain, redness, and swelling in a cut are not so much from infection but from inflammation as your body responds to the possibilities of an infection.
Following inflammation in many kinds of disease or a traumatic injury, is a process of scar tissue formation that scientists refer to as “fibrosis.” A number of pro-fibrotic genes turn on that process. And while fibrosis can be a good thing if you are healing a cut, in many other diseases it is a bad thing.
So Protandim, as a master regulator of the aging process and a Nrf2 activator, activates survival genes, including antioxidant genes that keep us safe from free radicals and oxidants. It also turns down genes that perpetuate inflammation and genes that encourage slow progressive fibrosis to take place. Together, these actions provide a remarkable promise of protection from many kinds of age-related conditions.
These type of scientific breakthroughs create global interest. The breakthrough anti-aging product, Protandim, is so significant that universities around the world continue to initiate and fund their own trials investigating the anti-aging and health promoting capabilities of Protandim.
This large global interest in the science of Protandim has sparked additional topics for consideration that deal with the alleviation of oxidative stress under the following conditions: altitude sickness, skin cancer, photo aging of the skin, renal failure, osteoarthritis, HIV / AIDS associated lipodystrophy, pulmonary hypertension, periodontal disease, heart disease, coronary artery bypass graft failure, asthma, Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), metabolic syndrome, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and optic neuropathy.
To the best of the knowledge of its maker, Protandim is the only supplement in the world (based on peer-reviewed, human clinical studies) to reduce aging factors by an average of 40 percent … and this will turn your body back to that of a 20 year old. Protandim has been awarded three patents and is the subject of more than 20 independent clinical studies at the present time.
Finally, Protandim contains 5 ingredients known to scientists as Nrf2 activators. This patented antioxidant therapy is many times more powerful than red wine, oranges, blueberries, juices, or other popular antioxidants because Protandim has the ability to activate Nrf2!
As mentioned in a previous post on this blog, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chief Medical Correspondent at CNN, has reported that “Practical Immortality may now be within our grasp.”
So now the question becomes, “how do we slow the rate of aging and avoid the frailty that would make longevity less desirable?”
With antioxidant supplements, we can slow our rate of aging; with a nutrition and fitness routine, we can avoid frailty and improve our health; and with an industry leading home business opportunity, we can make great money and generate financial wealth.
