Ingredients and Production
Protandim, protected by four patents, is made of five potent botanicals:
Milk Thistle Extract (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.
Bacopa Extract (Aerial Part)
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.
Ashwagandha root is a herb of the ages from the traditional medicine of India and is considered an “adaptogen,” a term used to describe herbs that improve physical energy and athletic ability, increase immunity to colds and infections and increase sexual capacity and fertility. Ashwagandha helps boost the immune system, helps alleviate stress and is also used to treat inflammation, improve memory and provide a rich source of antioxidants.
Green Tea Extract (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 antioxidative and anticarcinogenic functions.
Turmeric Extract (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.
