Nrf2 is a key protein that is bound within each of our cells, unable to move until released by an Nrf2 activator.It then migrates into the cell nucleus and bonds to the DNA at the location of the Antioxidant Response Element: the master regulator of the entire antioxidant system that is present in all human cells.
Protandim The Nrf2 Synergizer, achieves the goal, long sought after by world class medical researchers, of activating Nrf2
Nrf2 is a potent protein messenger contained in every cell of the body that sends information to the cell’s DNA telling the cells of the body to produce antioxidant enzymes to protect themselves from the ravages free radical damage known as oxidative stress. Nrf2 signals the genes in the nucleus of the cell to increase production of many antioxidant proteins or enzymes. Protandim’s patented synergy of five herbs activates the Nrf2 transcription factor, which in turn acts as a molecular switch that regulates 1000 of the body’s most important genes (often referred to as survival genes); up-regulating protective genes while simultaneously down-regulating metabolic processes that are harmful to health.
Most doctors and health practitioners are not yet familiar with Nrf2 activation because the science is so new.
Early studies on Nrf2 activators began coming out in 1998. By this time (Oct 2011) over 2000 published studies have been completed. This area of bio-medical research has accelerated quickly in the last decade, so word is just beginning to spread in the medical community. There are pharmaceutical companies racing to develop drugs for various diseases that target this genetic pathway. Protandim is already available, proven to work, affordable, well tolerated and has none of the side effects that come along with synthetic drugs.
