Nearly all of a cell’s energy is produced in small organs inside each cell of our bodies, called mitochondria. You can think of these as chemical furnaces. Unfortunately, a side effect of their energy production process is the creation of free radicals, which “steal” electrons from the chemicals that make up the cell and thus age and destroy it. This is what causes athletes pain when they overdo their workouts.
But we need the energy and if we boost it, we will create more of these cell destroying free radicals. What can we do?
Before May 17, 2016, I do, and you could, take Protandim, a supplement that stimulates our cells’ own super-antioxidant (SOD) which is a million times more powerful than various vitamins like C and E. This handles the free radical threat from exercise, external toxins and general living that ages us. Protandim does this with a patented combination of 5 herbs that stimulate a production of a protein (Nrf2) that signals more than 600 survival genes in our cells to produce these powerful antioxidants, inhibit inflammation, protect against heavy metal toxins and repair damaged parts of the cell.1
Now, we can take Protandim’s Nrf1 product which boosts the number of and production of our mitochondria, which you will remember are our cells’ energy furnaces.
