Eat Your Fruits and Vegetables, but Don’t Forget the Protandim

Remember when you were young and were constantly urged to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables? This sage advice is sound for anyone--young or old. 

 

Fruits and vegetables provide essential nutrients, and they are low in fat. Fruits contain high amounts of fiber, water and vitamin C; nutrition found in vegetables is considerable, with vitamins A, K and B6, provitamins, dietary minerals and carbohydrates. The USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends consuming three to five servings of vegetables and two cups of fruit daily.

 

Fruits and vegetables also contain antioxidants. Berries, grapes, oranges, plums and kiwi, among others, are sources, as is red cabbage, pepper and spinach. But nothing comes close to Protandim.

 

In order to neutralize the number of free radicals Protandim can neutralize each day, one would need to eat 375 oranges and 120 vitamin C tablets. Protandim induces the cells to produce enzymes that can eliminate 1 million free radicals per second. Protandim has been clinically proven to reduce oxidative stress by an average of 40 percent in 30 days.

 

So keep eating your fruits and vegetables for the many nutrients they provide. But to boost your antioxidants, take Protandim every day!

Ultra-Popular Green Tea has its Place in Protandim

Greentea 3_80x 80Here's something to sip on: of all of Protandim's five ingredients, green tea is probably the most studied and most highly regarded.

 

Green tea has been an important part of Asian and Middle Eastern cultures for 4,000 years. Numerous varieties of green tea have been created, and the tea has only recently become popular in Western cultures.

 

Over the past decade, scientists and researchers have studied and tested this long-consumed beverage, produced from the Camellia sinensis leaves of China. These studies, conducted in university labs across the world, have examined green tea's role in lowering cholesterol, burning fat and fending off dementia, among other things.

 

Many health professionals agree that green tea has critical antioxidants that assist in maintaining sound health.

 

Recent studies also suggest, but not prove, that green tea may reduce the risks of developing cancers such as breast, stomach, prostate, pancreatic and colorectal cancer. Physicians do urge, however, that green tea not be consumed as a drug but instead to complement the diet.

 

Protandim includes green tea extract containing 98 percent polyphenols. Though green tea does have caffeine, Protandim contains less than 4 milligrams of caffeine, less than your typical "caffeine-free" coffee.
