What if there was a natural supplement that could help reverse or prevent disease? What if there was a way to improve your quality of life? Would you try it ?
Studies indicate that the root cause of most ailments are due to Oxidative stress. Our body naturally has its own mechanism to defend against free radicals--Nrf-1 and Nrf-2 pathways and a gene called MTHFR. MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) is an enzyme that plays a major role in homocysteine balance and glutathione production. It helps convert folic acid to methylfolate. We need methylfolate in order to create GLUTATHIONE, our body’s master detoxifier.
Translation - without glutathione, detoxification slows, inflammation increases, and oxidative stress climbs.
The Result - chronic or persistent illness, autoimmune disease, sleep disorders and more.
MTHFR mutations have been linked to a decreased ability to detoxify toxins, as well as over 60 chronic health conditions including Hashimoto’s and hypothyroidism, blood clots, infertility, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, depression, birth defects, and certain cancers.
Children and adults with these mutations are more susceptible to toxins added to vaccines as they have limited amounts of glutathione and are unable to properly detox heavy metals and toxins.
Supplementing with glutathione serves little purpose as it is nearly impossible to absorb at the cellular level. However, activating the body's OWN glutathione production INCREASES the potential for suppressing MTHFR gene mutation effects.
Nrf2 activation actually turns on and up regulates our survival genes, while down regulating our bad genes.
In the past, plants grown in healthy soil were enough but the growing pollution in our environment has not made the plants ideal as sole protector.
Scientists know the benefits of medicinal plants and the benefits of eating a plant based diet but we don’t have a product out there with significant studies until Lifevantage produced Protandim.
Proper diet , meditation, and exercise helps to activate the Nrf-1 and Nrf-2 pathways naturally. But now these days you would need to ingest a significant amount of herbs/fruits/vegetables to achieve the protection. You would need 400 grams a day of fruits and vegetables or 87 glasses of wine, 357 oranges , or 11 lbs of blueberries. I think I eat well, but I’m guilty of not eating enough fruits and vegetables daily and guilty of eating processed foods. Not mentioning, exposing myself daily to toxins from the water, soil, air that I breathe, and exposure to cellular radiation.
There are 5 known herbs that help to reduce inflammation/repair cells: green tea, milk thistle, ashwagandha, turmeric, and bacopa. Lifevantage has combined the 5 powerful herbs into one pill--Protandim Nrf-2 . In combination with Protandim Nrf-2, Protandim Nrf-1 (containing Quercitin, grape skin, Alpha lipolic, Acetyl-L -carnitine, and Co-enzyme Q 10 acid) boosts the energy production of glutathione needed to help get rid of radicals. The combination has been patented for its synergistic effects to fight off the radicals that cause cancer, aging, and diseases caused by prolonged inflammation. No longer would you need to have 10 or more separate supplements. Protandim has been shown to decrease 40 % inflammation in 30 days.
The Microbiome gut is another area to focus on for healing the body. It is important to understand because an imbalance of the microflora could cause chronic diseases. Microbiome consists of bacteria-- living organisms that live in your gut to help balance the body. There are >1,000 species of bacteria in the gut. The microbiome helps control brain health, and regulates the immune system. The significance of prebiotics and probiotics is to restore gut health. Probiotics over the counter and in yogurt are not effective--they are a waste of money. Lifevantage has a patented delivery system that keeps it alive and therefore, works optimally in the gut.
Studies are showing that your gut is where diseases may start if not well balanced. Poor diet consisting of high processed foods, sugar , high fructose corn syrup,etc. leads to overgrowth of candida, and the widely use of antibiotics has depleted the healthy bacteria needed to balance your body. Most autoimmune diseases, depression, anxiety,etc. have been linked to leaky gut.
Let’s Reverse , Delay, and Prevent disease.
As we age, our levels of natural antioxidant decreases. And with the constant exposure to harmful soil, water, air , and cellular radiation, we need to further protect our cells from the rising free radicals. Without antioxidants, our cells could change their structure and mutate into harmful cells; therefore, failing to do their job.
Nrf-1 and Nrf-2 pathways help with the daily oxidative process by getting rid of radicals:
Nrf-1 pathway helps to increase energy production within the mitochondria
Nrf-2 pathway increases communication with the nucleus of the cell
Natural ways to increase Nrf-1 and Nrf-2 pathway :
Meditation / yoga/ Tai-chi/Gi gong
Plant based diet
Natural supplements : LifeVantage Protandim, Vitality stack
Nrf2 turns on your detox pathway. Your OWN BODY MAKES #GLUTATHIONE.
Optimal health starts at taking care of our Microbiome gut and maximizing antioxidants.
