“What is the MOST important supplement I should take?”
This is a question I get asked because most people get tired of spending money on supplements that may or may not be helpful.
When I look at the hundreds of supplements I carry in my office, I see a lot of good ones. But if I had to pick just ONE of them, it would be one that could heal the body from disease, prevent future disease, and detoxify the body at the same time. That’s what the ideal supplement would be able to do.
But of course, it’s not everyday that I run across a supplement that can do all of that.
However, I heard about one particular supplement from a few people recently that sounded promising…
I learned that a top cardiologist who founded the St. Joseph’s Heart Institute in Tampa and a lead cancer researcher from John Hopkins are seeing the value in it and are recommending this supplement for disease prevention, so I though it might be something special.
Then I talked to a sports nutritionist who had stopped using over 30 different supplement when he started using this one with his clients.
So, I decided to research it. I had no idea there were 22 peer reviewed studies on it in the medical literature. No other supplement has this level of research done on it. I spent 2 months going through the studies in Pubmed and analyzing the data.
What I found was really impressive!
It’s been found to increase the level of antioxidants in the body, such as glutathione by 300% in 30 days. It lowers oxidative stress by 40% over the same time frame. That’s just 30 days! And the longer people take it, the more it lowers their levels of oxidative stress.
Now, you are probably wondering, what does this mean? Oxidative stress is damage to our cells that is caused by exposure to toxins and is the natural effect of aging. If you are living and breathing on the planet, your body is having more damage by free radicals that cause oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress is the inflammatory process underlying over 200 diseases.
This process causes INFLAMMATION in the body. Inflammation is the underlying issue in over 200 diseases. You can see and feel acute inflammation in the form of redness, swelling, pain, and heat when you injure your body. But chronic inflammation is not something you feel as easily, but it can be behind many symptoms of aging and disease. It happens when we eat foods that we’re sensitive to, have excessive stress, are exposed to environmental toxins, consume too much alcohol, or eat a diet that’s high in sugar and deficient in other nutrients.
Antioxidants lower inflammation, and slow down the aging process and reverse disease. And you’re probably thinking, “I take antioxidant supplements all the time” or “I eat lots of antioxidant foods….blueberries, pomegranates, etc…”.
Of course, we all need to eat lots of foods rich in antioxidants. But they can only do so much good when there is so much oxidative stress in the body. Here’s the thing: External antioxidants quench free radicals at a rate of one-to-one. Meaning for every molecule of the antioxidant you consume, it can neutralize ONE free radical. That means you need to eat a boatload of berries to make a dent in the damage that’s been done in your body.
What’s unique about this product is that it doesn’t work like that. Rather than providing an external source of antioxidants, it goes into your cells, and sends a signal to your DNA to MAKE antioxidants internally!
Your body can make it’s own antioxidants! You probably didn’t even know that.
When your body makes them, it’s obviously better. And here’s why: Internally produced antioxidants quench free radicals at the rate of a MILLION to one!! It is much more effective at lowering inflammation than taking external antioxidants.
Because it has such a profound effect on the body, it can reverse chronic disease, prevent future disease, and detoxify the body at the cellular level.
I finally found a product that met my criteria.
Just last night, I was able to interview this cardiologist to hear why he has over 3,000 of his patients taking this supplement, Protandim NRF2. He shared some amazing information!
To learn more about the benefits, and hear the interview, you can watch it here:
Although we can never make medical claims, this product provides so many anti-aging, anti-cancer, and anti-inflammatory effects, it’s a great thing to take for prevention of disease as well as to recover from disease. We’ve heard testimonials of people recovering from arthritis, fatigue, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, MS, ALS, Parkinson’s, cancer, etc…after being on this supplement for 6-12 months because it enables the body to heal itself!
If you have questions about it, you can set up a free consultation with one of our practitioners to learn more about it.
