Your DNA Has A “Switch” That Could change Your Life!

Human cell!

There are “antioxidants” and then there are “antioxidant enzymes.” The impact of one can literally change your life. The other has been given fictitious, even mythical properties to cure all that ails you. Which do you think it might be?

You have been hearing about antioxidants for years. It’s in everything that can be eaten or consumed in some form. There is even a claim that “cherry soda” has antioxidants! Now there’s a real health tip for ya! Never mind the impact of that soda on your health.

The conclusion to a study done by the American Public Health Association states the following;

Available data indicate a clear and consistent association between soft drink consumption and increased energy intake. Given the multiple sources of energy in a typical diet, it is noteworthy that a single source of energy can have such a substantial impact on total energy intake. This finding alone suggests that it would be prudent to recommend population decreases in soft drink consumption. The fact that soft drinks offer energy with little accompanying nutrition, displace other nutrient sources, and are linked to several key health conditions such as diabetes is further impetus to recommend a reduction in soft drink consumption(1).

But let’s get back to antioxidants that you consume. Juices, fruits, plant foods like spinach all have antioxidants. Or maybe something like fish oil to get the benefits of Omega 3 fatty acids. Every single food you can consume with antioxidants is good for you! There is not one thing wrong with consumable antioxidants. But there is a problem. It will never be enough(2).

Why? There’s a great big stretch between those antioxidants, and the number of free radicals they neutralize. Just in case that hasn’t been mentioned, antioxidants are the answer to fight free radicals. And free radicals are the things that are killing you, one cell at a time. It’s called oxidative stress(3) and yes, you have it.

No, you don’t need to go to your doctor to confirm that. Every single person and mammal in the world has it! It’s not an epidemic or anything. You commonly refer to is as (ugh) aging. Yeah, not a popular topic. But there it is.

So OK, all the super good stuff you can eat isn’t enough. Why is that? Free radicals are worse than a hill of ants. There are sextillions of them. Take any number you want and add 21 “0’s” and you’ve got it. And that’s what the human body is exposed to everyday! And there is the problem.

The antioxidants you eat. Suppose the lovely orange had 400,000 antioxidants ready to do battle with the free radicals. That one orange could only eliminate 400,000 free radicals. It would be a double massacre because it’s one for one. Now you don’t see 21 “0’s” behind the number of antioxidants in that orange. So take that one orange and figure out how many it would take everyday to have a fair chance against all those free radicals. Do you see the challenge?

Here’s the good news. Mother Nature created a better natural defense in the form of medicinal herbs. Five specific herbs, some that have been used for centuries by Asian and Chinese cultures.  Science discovered and proved that these herbs, combined together in a specific way could do an amazing thing. Reduce oxidative stress in any person, every time!

That may not seem like a big deal until you hear all the things that oxidative stress is linked to(4).  Things like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, depression, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and more. Over 200 major diseases and counting.

So what does this herbal combination in the form of a pill do? It causes  a reaction in your cell that acts like a “switch’ in your DNA. When that switch goes on the DNA produces a multitude of enzymes. Antioxidant enzymes that can eradicate over 1 million free radicals every second of the day(5)! Pretty amazing, and it’s not a drug.

Sorry! If you were expecting something from BIG PHARMA or FDA’s newest approved drug (joke!) this one won’t qualify. Why? First of all it’s an all natural supplement. BIG PHARMA and their step-child FDA have a strong dislike for such thing. Again the question why? Because they can’t patent it, and therefore can’t control prices. So just like Organics, supplements are the hated competition for drugs!

Just in case you’re not aware, and many aren’t, While the FDA claims jurisdiction over supplements, you will notice every single one must have the disclaimer  in addition to any claims made about the product. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.”

Here is the verbiage from FDA in regard to this. This statement or “disclaimer” is required by law (DSHEA) when a manufacturer makes a structure/function claim on a dietary supplement label. In general, these claims describe the role of a nutrient or dietary ingredient intended to affect the structure or function of the body. If a statement claims a benefit related to a classical nutrient deficiency disease the prevalence of such disease in the U.S. must be disclosed on the label. The manufacturer is responsible for ensuring the accuracy and truthfulness of these claims; they are not approved by FDA. For this reason, the law says that if a dietary supplement label includes such a claim, it must state in a “disclaimer” that FDA has not evaluated this claim. The disclaimer must also state that this product is not intended to “diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease,” because only a drug can legally make such a claim.”

By exploring the links given in this report to pubmed.gov, you will have access to the “Peer Reviews” on Protandim. At last count there were twelve. The purpose of these reviews is to verify the efforts of experts to disprove the claims made about this product. Failure to do so indicates it functions as claimed! This is huge, as this is one of the few products that is all natural, that can make such a claim. Bottom line, it works.

Will it work for you? Does it work for everyone? The simple answer is “yes.” Will you be able to see changes to some issues you may have a health challenge with? Not necessarily. There are many people using this supplement, simply because they understand how it works in fighting “free radicals.” Yet they had no serious health challenges from the start.

Many others have seen drastic changes in joint pain from arthritis, acid reflux, intestinal issues, even diabetes to mention just a few. Oh, and did you know this works wonders for your pets? Yes, you read that right. You can stop giving you pet harmful drugs for various ailments, and the change is nearly overnight!
