Protandim: The New Antioxidant Therapy

There has been a lot of buzz about the new antioxidant therapy Protandim in the news lately. Protandim was released in February 2005 and has already been featured on news broadcasts such as 20/20 and ABC News along with several news websites including With all the attention in the news, many may still be wondering, what exactly is Protandim, and what are its potential benefits?

Protandim and Anti-Aging
The makers of Protandim make the following claim: “Protandim allows the body's natural antioxidant enzymes to be produced where they are most needed - within the cells where oxidative stress actually occurs. This is in stark contrast to traditional antioxidant supplements, which have to pass significant digestive and absorption barriers and simply can't be consumed in the quantities needed to protect the body against the damage caused by oxidative stress. Not hampered by quantity, digestive and absorption constraints, Protandim acts as a catalyst to cause the body to increase the production of its own antioxidant defense system.”

Protandim is a patent pending formula based on botanical extracts developed with the intention of rejuvenating the body’s highly effective natural defenses against oxidative stress – the cell damage that significantly contributes to aging and many age-related health concerns.

Protandim Ingredients
According to ABC News, Protandim “is a combination of five plant ingredients. Two of them are pretty commonplace — green tea and turmeric, a spice used in Indian cooking. The others, among them withania somnifera and silybum marianum, are more exotic.”

Due to the fact that Protandim is made up of herbal ingredients already in use, it is marketed as a nutraceutical and does not require FDA approval to manufacture and sell.

Protandim and Disease Prevention
The developers of Protandim make no claims about curing or preventing any diseases but hope that further studies of the drug can provide backing to make such claims. They hope that Protandim will help with diseases such as Diabetes and Heart Disease and are conducting future studies to test its effects.
