Dr. Joe McCord “the five ingredients together produce an effect 18 times greater than the sum of their parts”.
Taking the ingredients individually is not as good as taking a single pill of Protandim. The combination of ingredients creates a synergy that has been studied and proven to provide much more antioxidant power than any food or conventional supplements. Protandim produces a 300% increase in glutathione, which is a key antioxidant and anti-aging factor.
Milk Thistle Extract (Silybum Marianum) (Seed)
The milk thistle is a flowering plant of the daisy family. Native to the Mediterranean regions of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, its seeds have been used for 2,000 years to treat chronic liver disease and to protect the liver against toxins. Increasing research is being undertaken on the physiological effects, therapeutic properties and possible medical uses of milk thistle. Research suggests that milk thistle extracts both prevent and repair damage to the liver from toxic chemicals and medications.

Bacopa herb, commonly grown in marshy areas throughout India, has been touted for its cognitive enhancing effects for centuries. It possesses strong antioxidant properties, protects mental function and helps improve learning skills. Research shows the plant is used a traditional treatment for epilepsy and asthma. It has also been shown to impact the oxidative stress cascade by scavenging reactive oxygen species, inhibiting lipoxygenase activity and reducing divalent metals. This mechanism of action may explain the effect of Bacopa extract in reducing beta amyloid deposits with Alzheimer’s disease.

Green Tea Extract (Camellia Sinensis) (Leaf)
Green tea originates from China and is associated with many cultures in Asia and the Middle East. It has been subjected to many scientific studies to determine the extent of its long-purported health benefits. Many believe green tea helps lower chances of heart disease and of developing certain types of cancer due to flavonoids, a group of phytochemicals in most plant products that are responsible for antioxidant and anti carcinogenic functions. Research has also shown leaves have been used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat asthma, angina pectoris, peripheral vascular disease, and coronary artery disease.
Turmeric Extract (Curcuma Longa) (Rhizome)
Turmeric has been used for centuries and has always been an important part of Chinese herbal medicine and has also been used in India for 2,500 years. Truly, the health benefits of turmeric have been slowly revealing themselves over the centuries. This natural food is believed by many to support liver health, help prevent bad cholesterol and is being studied for its ability to prevent and block the growth of tumors. Turmeric has attracted the attention of researchers in the fields of Alzheimer’s disease, memory deficits, arthritis, cancer (including breast cancer) and diabetes. It possesses anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and its antioxidant power is so effective it actually helps preserve the shelf life of foods it’s added to.
