We call our store Healthy Shoes and More because we believe that offering our customers a well built and properly fitted shoe is just one part of their solution to the proper care of their feet. It’s a great place to start, but we can offer so much more.
There are a great many wonderful products that do many good things for our bodies to slow down the aging process and help us heal without drugs and their side effects. But wading through the many many choices can be overwhelming. And many of our customers not only want relief for a particular issue with their feet, their gait, or their joints, but they are curious about what they can do to be more proactive in their lifestyle choices.
We have found a unique product that reduces oxidative stress by over 40% in 30 days, documented by lab work before and after. We feel that there are many great natural products on the market today that are wonderful alternatives to drugs and NSAID’s. We have been researching the science behind a product called Protandim and are now sharing it with anyone who is interested in reversing the damage of oxidative stress and aging.
What is Protandim?
It is a Nrf2 Synergizer. Nrf2 is one of the key proteins in the body and regulates 1000+ of the 25,000 genes in the body. Dr. Joe McCord, a reknowned (now retired) professor from Duke University, used an easy to understand analogy of “ringing a doorbell” to simplify the chemistry. Think of every gene as having a “dimmer switch”. Nrf2 is the protein that can reach that dimmer switch. Protandim helps your body wake up, balance and regulate it’s genes by “turning some up” or “turning some down.” The genes that Protandim regulates have been termed by scientists to be our “survival genes.”

How Does it Work?
We love the way this doctor is able to explain Nrf2 so that everyone can understand it.
How much does Protandim cost?
Protandim costs $40/month and less that $10 for shipping and handling. Canine Health, the Protandim supplement for dogs, is $25/bottle. We strongly recommend that a person commit to a 3 month trial, minimum. When you treat a symptom, you can get relief within minutes to hours, but it doesn’t last. When you treat the cause, it can take weeks to heal. You have to give this product a chance to work.
How does this fit in with what your doctor suggests?
The medical field has made tremendous progress in treating many diseases. And with appropriate use of antibiotics, many infections can be cured. But this is more the exception than the rule. Many diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and cancer are difficult or unable to be cured. As a result, the treatments are directed primarily at the symptoms. This can result in progression of the disease, long term requirement for medication and surgery if needed.
When you treat the cause, the cause goes away and you can stop the treatment. When you treat the symptoms, and not the cause…the cause continues, and not infrequently progresses. If there is no cure, treatment needs to be continued and, not infrequently, increased in intensity.
Much effort is being directed toward finding the cause of disease but this goal is frequently elusive. Attempts are being directed at preventing disease or catching it in it’s earliest stages. This strategy includes improving nutrition and making other lifestyle changes. We believe that Protandim dovetails with this strategy of preventing illness and treating disease in it’s earliest stages. The sooner everyone realizes this, the better off they will be.
These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. Protandim is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. If you are pregnant, nursing, suffering from a serious medical condition, taking a prescription drug, or have surgery scheduled in the next two weeks, consult a physician before use.
Protandim for Pets?
So many people were giving Protandim to their dogs and reporting wonderful results, that LifeVantage formulated a product just for them, adding omega 3’s and flavoring them with chicken and liver! And with dogs, there is no “placebo effect”…it either works or it doesn’t.

Dr. Seward worked with Merck Research Laboratories, which headed up the group responsible for canine and equine ivermectin product development along with leading the team that developed Heartguard for dogs. He has co-authored 28 scientific papers and is named as a co-inventor of 3 patents. He is now looking over an equine study with this new Nrf2 technology. He has a lot to say about Canine Health.
Want to do more research to form your own opinion? Protandim has been studied by numerous universities in their own funded trials because scientists who know about the true science of oxidative stress are so excited about it’s potential.
Please use www.scholar.google.com when you research Protandim on the internet. This filters out paid advertisers and bloggers who get paid per click and rather, provides valid information that has been published by major periodicals and scientific journals. There are internet advertisers who attack supplement companies in an attempt to drive traffic to their websites to sell products and get “PAID PER CLICK”. Don’t fall victim to their scams.
