Supplements & Free Radicals

Updated on February 21, 2018

My work with top natural health professionals and experience as a fitness instructor teach me health tips that I am proud to share.

Dr. McCord is a world-renowned scientist who has been nominated four times for the Nobel Prize.

Free Radicals Age Body

I came across this from one of my friends. Although it`s old news, I thought I would share it with you in case you have never heard of it. I am sure you are familiar with free radicals and how they are damaging to the body. Free radicals are what age our bodies and they work from the inside out, caused by poor diet, stress, environmental toxins and lack of exercise. There can be other causes, but those pretty much cover it and give a reason as you why you need to take your daily vitamins and antioxidants. In order to live to a ripe old age and hit the 3 digits, you will need to practice effective ways to neutralize free radicals. Protandim seems like a very simple supplement that can help those who feel the effects of aging. Watch the video and let me know your thoughts on this supplement.

Scientific Investigation

The scientific investigation of free radicals and oxidative stress began in the late 1960s with Dr. Joe McCord and a small group of scientists. Dr. McCord has dedicated over 45 years of research into the free radical biology and the process of aging. He is a world-renowned scientist who has been nominated four times for the Nobel Prize.

Free Radicals Influencing the Body

First 20 Years of Our Lives

For the first 20 years of our lives (a time period we call our "Youth"), our body produces an abundant supply of three very powerful and important antioxidant enzymes called "survival genes" (superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione) that slow down and regulate the natural occurrence of aging. At about the age of 20, your body starts to decrease its production of these amazing enzymes, and that's when "the real aging" process begins.

Ideally, we discover how to reduce the aging process. Many have discovered that eating well, exercising, and taking supplements impedes the aging process. We can live a long, healthy, and youthful life.

What Do You Think?

Do you feel we need to try to stay young forever or age gracefully?

Doctor Talks About Protandim

Treat the Cause Not the Symptom

Living better and healthier is a lifestyle most of us would like to practice. People are so quick to take a Tylenol or other painkillers. All they are doing is masking the cause of getting old.

Taking supplements, eating better, and exercising will help older people live longer and pain-free. It is important to talk to your doctor about alternative ways to avoid prescription drugs. You might want to consider visiting a naturopathic doctor. A naturopathic doctor identifies and treats the cause.

Becoming and staying healthy through natural means is a journey, not a quick fix. It is best done by reading and discovering what works for you.

      Interesting point, but I can see how that would make sense. Can of reverse cause and effect. I would like to review those studies.
