‘Biohacking Wellness’ sums up what this site is all about – finding effective DIY solutions to impact your health in a positive way.
Now it won’t surprise me if you’ve not heard of Biohacking as it is a fairly new and exciting approach to health. It’s based on the serious science of Nutrigenomics, which studies the effects of food and nutrition on our gene expression, or put another way, ‘you are what you eat‘. Unlike computer hacking, which is NOT good, biohacking wellness is BRILLIANT because it uses the science of nutrigenomics to hack or take back control of your health through diet, your lifestyle and bioavailable supplements to help maintain a healthy body.
I have already blogged my thoughts on supplements, so in this post, I wanted to give special attention to a natural supplement called Protandim NRf2 Activation, and I believe the timing for this particular product is spot on because of today’s health focus, which is to provide the body with the tools to heal itself.
Watch this ABC Primetime Investigative Report
Let’s start with a quick video that was the launch pad for Protandim Nrf2. This ABC report was aired back in 2005 so there are a few details that have been updated: Protandim now has 9 patents, not 3 and there are now 23 peer reviews published papers on www.pubmed.gov.
There are actually 2 products available under the Protandim umbrella, Nrf2 Synergizer and Nrf1, but I’m going to spotlight Nrf2 as it is the flagship product. Just so you know, Protandim is not available in your local health store, so at the end of this article there is a link for you to purchase Protandim Nrf2 online, and the countries it’s available in are also listed there.
Biohacking Wellness with Protandim Nrf2
Protandim Nrf2 activation has a lot to offer as a natural plant and science-based formula. It is patented and has been researched, tested and validated by renowned universities and institutions in both the USA and Europe. If you are already eating oranges, blueberries, juices or maybe taking an antioxidant supplement, you are doing that because you know that increasing your antioxidants to help fight oxidative stress is a good thing, even if you’re not sure why. (Keep reading to learn why you want to reduce oxidative stress)
Protandim Nrf2 is a daily food supplement that supports cellular health and in all honesty its impossible to say how you are going to feel when you start taking it because it’s not always obvious how oxidative stress is presenting itself or affecting your health. What I can say is; ‘Protandim Nrf2 is a natural supplement that ACTIVATES the Nrf2 pathway, which in turn helps to increase the production of Nrf2 enzymes, those vital antioxidants that are needed to fight oxidative stress’.
Let’s have a look at a testimony from the ever young Donny Osmond, who has been taking Protandim Nrf2 Synergizer for many years and as he says, ‘it is his secret weapon to turn back the clock‘.
For me, I see Protandim as my ‘biohacking health insurance‘ to help slow down the ageing process and support my cellular wellness.
Let me add my personal testimonial from activating my Nrf2 pathway!
If I’m honest this result completely blew me away and left me with NO doubt that Nrf2 activation is helping my body to heal. Now I have to include an important statement at this point – this product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease, but as you can see from the photo’s below I have experienced a powerful healing process that I was not expecting. After just 6 weeks of taking Nrf2 my mole simply dropped off and if I had thought this was going to happen, I would have probably taken a few more before photo’s!
Turn your body back into a lean, mean antioxidant producing machine!
I had no idea that from our mid-20’s our ‘survival genes‘ that help us develop and stay healthy when we are young, start producing fewer antioxidants and that in turn exposes our cells to harmful free radicals. These free radicals ravage damage our cells causing external ageing with wrinkles and greying hair and internal ageing through Oxidative Stress.
We know that eating the right foods and living a clean lifestyle is important, but when I discovered that the balance of herbs in Protandim Nrf2 could actually help crack the code of my DNA and get my survival genes turned back ON I got very excited. To turn my survival genes back on, fire up the Nrf2 pathway and kick-start the healthy production of antioxidants just made perfect sense to me.
These genes are regulated up or down, by the ‘messenger proteins,’ of which the two most important to activate are Nrf2 and Nrf1.
How does Protandim Nrf2 differ from other ways to get antioxidant into our body?
Well instead of providing the body with additional ‘dietary‘ antioxidants, Protandim Nrf2 actually helps your body produce these additional antioxidants naturally so they can fight those pesky free radicals that contribute to Oxidative Stress. Producing more antioxidants provide some extra protection against Oxidative Stress, so taking a natural supplement that could increase your antioxidant production by 40% in 30 days, is for me a no-brainer!
Protandim Nrf2 is backed by science and holds 9 US patents that protect the synergy of the ingredients listed below. This patented blend is significantly more powerful than taking each ingredient individually and of course, not all supplements are equal. There are not many natural supplements out there that can boast so many clinical peer-reviews and human clinical studies proving that it reduces oxidative stress by an average of 40 percent in 30 days. This claim is significant and proves that the Nrf2 protein is a ‘master regulator‘ of your body’s stress response. Encouraging your body to produce its OWN, antioxidant enzymes; Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), Catalase, Heme-Oxygenase and Glutathione Peroxidase, means these potent antioxidants are now capable of neutralizing over one million damaging free radicals. The synergy of the ingredients in Protandim Nrf2 effectively REBOOTS and ACTIVATES your Nrf2 pathway and the benefit of doing this goes beyond cellular protection as it can also help the body repair and rejuvenate its own cells, detoxify genes and keep the master blueprint of the cell’s function intact.
When the Nrf2 pathway is activated, it enters the nucleus of the cell and turns ON several hundred of our 25,000 genes. The genes that it turns ON, or turns UP, are known collectively as our survival genes. These genes enable cells to survive in the face of several different kinds of stress, especially Oxidative Stress, and this happens when free radicals and other oxidants overwhelm the body’s natural antioxidant enzymes.
‘ The discovery of Nrf2 activation is potentially the most promising breakthrough in the history of health’
Protandim NRF2 uses a synergistic blend of:
These five ingredients are known to scientists as ‘Nrf2 activators’. Nrf2 is a protein messenger contained in every cell of the body that sends information to the cell’s DNA. Protandim is also 100% vegetarian and free of allergens such as dairy, wheat, gluten, yeast and gelatin. This makes it easier for people with allergies to use Protandim safely.
Protandim Nrf2 is a science-based formula that has been researched, tested, validated and published by renowned universities and institutions and here are some highlights of these findings:
- Reduction of oxidative stress by 40% in just 30 days
- Significantly reduced cellular stress through Nrf2 activation
- Produces enzymes capable of neutralizing more than 1,000,000 free radicals
- Increase Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) levels by 30%

Should you worry about Oxidative Stress?
Oxidative Stress is inevitable as we age, but there is now growing research in the field of science and nutrition that is highlighting Oxidative Stress as one of the key underlying causes of many degenerative diseases (see the image below), so it makes total sense to me to find ways to reduce Oxidative Stress. We can all try to eat a good diet and live a clean lifestyle and taking Protandim could just offer that additional boost to biohacking wellness.
Biohacking wellness with Protandim = 40% Reduction in Oxidative Stress in 30 days
What is Oxidative Stress?
Oxidation happens as our bodies metabolize or process oxygen that we breathe so our cells can produce energy. This process also produces free radicals, which interact with the molecules within our cells and they create damage or stress to the nearby cells, the Mitochondria and our DNA or our genes. Although Free radicals cause damage, they are necessary as they also stimulate cell repair, but it is only when the amount of free radicals produced overwhelms the repair processes that it becomes an issue, and that is what is called Oxidative Stress. This biochemical process occurs at a cellular level and increases as we age. Just like your car if left to the elements will rust, our cells begin to deteriorate the more they are exposed to our stressful life.
So in summary, oxidative stress occurs when the amount of free radicals exceeds the number of antioxidants and that’s when oxidation damages our cells, proteins and our DNA (genes).
Here is a list of other circumstances that also contribute to oxidation:
- When our cells use glucose to make energy
- When the immune system is fighting off bacteria and creating inflammation
- When our bodies detoxify pollutants, pesticides, and cigarette smoke
- When we are physically and/or emotionally stressed
There are in fact millions of processes taking place in our bodies at any one moment that can result in oxidation, but as long as you have enough antioxidants, a careful balance can be maintained and damage kept to a minimum.
How do you know if you are suffering from Oxidative Stress?
Signs to look out for are: Fatigue – Memory loss and/or brain fog – Muscle and/or joint pain – Wrinkles and grey hair – Decreased eyesight – Headaches and sensitivity to noise – Susceptibility to infections
Other health conditions associated with Oxidative Stress: Chronic fatigue syndrome – Fibromyalgia – Diabetes – Alzheimer’s – Anxiety – Insomnia – Cancer
What can you do to reduce Oxidative Stress?
Avoid exposure to unnecessary oxidation by increasing your antioxidants through diet and a healthy lifestyle. Avoiding too much alcohol and of course, avoid smoking are obvious and taking a food supplement like Protandim Nrf2 will certainly help boost your antioxidants. Other things to consider would be to reduce your exposure to intense physical and mental stress, toxins, infections, SUGAR, chemicals, where possible swap toxic household and personal care products for safer non-toxic brands and choose organic produce whenever you can.
For sure your diet really matters, especially at a cellular level. Take a person who eats a balanced and varied diet of green leafy vegetables, organic produce goes vegan or at least eats grass-fed meat, they are going to have a different gene expression to someone who eats NO vegetables and a Mcdonalds everyday. These could even be twins with the same genetic code, but the twin who is eating the processed, highly inflammatory diet is going to express genes that are more likely to cause cancer and inflammation versus the healthier twin who will express healthy genes. So eating a more plant-based diet and choosing some essential supplements will really help your body to heal and repair for biohacking wellness.
I really feel passionate about wellness, the whole concept of biohacking and helping others to learn more about living a healthier, better quality and happier life. Personally, I use Protandim as it offers a spectacular solution to an inevitable problem facing our health as we get older.
