The older we get, the more our body has to suffer. Due to all kinds of circumstances our cells weaken. And it goes even faster when we smoke, feel stress, have a wrong diet, are obese, drink too much alcohol, exercise too much or when we are depressed. Not only our body cells are attacked, it also happens to our DNA. We call this oxidative stress. As such this is a normal process of aging. But we can influence how fast or slow this occurs.


Oxidative stress is the reason for aging. Our body produces antioxidants to fight the oxidative stress. When we get older our body does not have enough antioxidants to cope with our oxidative stress. From scientific studies we also know that many illnesses are also being caused or influenced by oxidative stress. It is obvious that a healthy life style and a healthy and strong body protect our cells and DNA.


In America I was introduced to Protandim NRF2. Protandim is a food supplement based on five natural products. The five ingredients are: Turmeric, Bacopa, Green Tea, Ashwagandha and Milk Thistle. Protandim is the only supplement proven in a clinical study to reduce oxidative stress by an average of 40% in 30 days. Protandim has been shown to increase superoxide dismutase levels by 30%, glutathione by 300%, and catalase by 54%. When individuals were supplemented with Protandim for 30 days, the age-dependent increase in lipid peroxidation was completely eliminated. Lipid peroxidation in an older subject was reduced to the level of a 20-year-old. This means the body is not only capable of making its own antioxidant enzymes, but also that their production can be activated by Protandim to reduce cellular stress and may help protect against the aging process and several conditions in which cellular stress has been reported to be a contributing factor. Protandim has proven to be good for your health, to slow down aging and to reduce (chronical) pain in many cases. I use it myself, I have more energy and I feel great.  It gives your body and life a real boost.
