About PROTANDIM

Protandim - Clinically Proven - Click Here to Order Now
PROTANDIM is the only supplement clinically proven to reduce oxidative stress by an average 40%, slowing down the cell aging process to the level of a 20 year-old. Protandim is not a conventional antioxidant supplement. Each Protandim caplet contains a unique combination of phytonutrients that signal the body’s genes to produce its own antioxidant enzymes, which provides thousands of times more antioxidant power than any food or conventional antioxidant supplement.

The natural ingredients in Protandim were specifically chosen based upon their ability to cause the body to produce and up-regulate its natural network of antioxidant enzymes, including SOD and CAT. Protandim has been formulated using high quality, potent herbal extracts processed under proprietary technologies. It therefore provides powerful antioxidant protection against oxidative stress.

Uh Oh. Look What Happens at Age 40


Web's Best Brain Games
It's not your imagination. It really is all downhill after age 40, and you can blame it on your brain. The part of the brain that is charge of motion begins to decline after four decades of life, impacting not only how fast you can throw a ball or run, but also swerve a steering wheel.

New research from the University of California, Los Angeles suggests that by middle age, even healthy people lose some of the insulation in the motor-control part of the brain, reports The Associated Press. Good insulation, which is a fat called myelin that coats nerve fibers, is key for the brain's wiring to fire fast commands to the body's muscles. Lead study author Dr. George Bartzokis, a UCLA neurologist, told AP this helps explain why "it's hard to be a world-class athlete after 40."

Bartzokis likens our brains to the Internet. For it to have speedy movement, it needs bandwidth, which for the brain is myelin. When the myelin is healthy and strong, it allows for the prompt conduction of the electrical signals that the brain uses to send commands, reports AP. The higher-frequency electrical discharges control all movement--whether it's running a marathon or scratching your earlobe. Bartzokis theorizes that great older athletes have better myelin than the rest of us. Concerning basketball legend Michael Jordan, he told AP, "The circuitry that made him a great basketball player was probably myelinated better than most other mortals."

While myelin grows during our teenage years, production of it begins to slow around age 40, according to Bartzokis' latest research. To test his theories, he recruited 72 healthy men, ages 23 to 80, to perform a simple test: Tap their index finger as many times as they could in 10 seconds. In addition to counting how many times each man could do this (the fastest two times out of 10 attempts were recorded), the researchers conducted brain scans to check for myelin in need of repair in the region that orders a finger to tap.

It's downhill after 40. The team found that both tapping speed and myelin health peaked at age 39 and then gradually declined with increasing age. However, the brain is not equally impacted. The areas responsible for cognitive functions and higher-level thinking start to fray about 10 years after the motor-skills area. The study findings were reported in the journal Neurobiology of Aging.

10 Tips to Look 10 Years Younger

We all want to look young, energetic, and healthful. Here are 10 tricks...er, tips culled from Prevention magazine, The New York Post, and the Cleveland Plain Dealer, that will help you look younger than your real age--without surgery.

Conceal and moisturize
"When you hit a certain age, the things you've done before don't apply," makeup artist Robin Narvaez of Manhattan's Borja Color Studio told The New York Post. "You need to learn new tricks." And the No. 1 trick in her book is moisturize, moisturize, moisturize and then use makeup to conceal any imperfections, such as broken capillaries, age spots, and shadows.

ANEW REJUVENATE Flash Facial
Revitalizing concentrate maximizes your anti-aging benefits. 3X the RevitaFresh technology. 1 fl. oz.
Instantly skin feels cooled, looks dramatically revitalized. Texture, tone & the look of pores are visibly improved; visibly blurs imperfections.
In just 7 days Begins to fill in the look of fine lines. Skin tones appears more even; pores seem to vanish.
In just 2 weeks Skin looks dramatically younger.


Use sunscreen as a moisturizer
In the morning, slather sunscreen on your face just as you would a moisturizer, advises Prevention magazine. Use SPF 15. If you plan to be outside most of the day, use SPF 45.

Dr. Michelle Copeland Skin Care Lip Protector with Antioxidants and SPF-15
Developed by renowned New York plastic surgeon, Dr. Michelle Copeland, this unique blend of powerful antioxidants and moisturizers helps prevent cracking and dryness while protecting lips from ultraviolet rays. Lips look soft and moist with repeated use. Also helps erase the appearance of fine lines around the lip line.


Trim your eyebrows
Splurge and let a pro do it the first time or two until you learn the tricks. If your eyebrows are the wrong shape, they can actually make you look older and even sadder. But beware: Narvaez says you should never wax your brows since that pulls on the skin and will make you look older.


Ardell Trim & Shape Grooming Tool
Brow Trim & Shape is an easy and convenient no-mess tool perfect for trimming and shaping eyebrows.
The unique design helps prevent cuts, nicks and irritation of delicate skin. Also perfect for use on face, neck, arms, and bikini area.
Contains 3 Disposable Razors.


This will make you blush
Since older skin dries out faster, use a brush and loose powder for foundation. "Stay away from anything called matte," warns Narvaez. "A dry, flat finish will only emphasize wrinkles and cracks." And do use blush--a soft pink is best. Always avoid bronze.

IDEAL SHADE Smooth Mineral Makeup
Face a new you.
Free yourself from talc, oil or fragrance. Our Smooth Mineral Makeup contains 100% pure mineral pigments, and it's great for all skin types! It's smooth as a cream foundation, light as a powder. New precise light technology makes skin look natural in any light. And with more shades than ever...you'll be able to find your ideal match. Medium coverage; Luminous finish.


The great wrinkle cover-up
Once you hit your 40s, call your dermatologist for a prescription-strength vitamin A derivative, such as Retin A, Renova, or Tazorac. These products will make your wrinkles less noticeable and will actually help fade age spots. Prevention magazine says they may even help prevent certain pre-cancerous changes in your skin. Narvaez says you can disguise fine lines around your lips by building up the cupid's bow with a neutral-covered lip liner. Want that dewy look? Try lip gloss.

Get an eyeful of this
Use a light-colored eye shadow to open up your eyes and make them look bigger--but avoid anything shiny because it's so artificial looking. Narvaez also recommends curling your eyelashes and using dark brown or black mascara. No other colors work for the over-40 crowd because they look so fake. Avoid waterproof mascara since you'll have to rub hard to get it off, which can stress your delicate (read: aging) skin.

Experience long, luscious lashes with breathtaking lift. Lasts all day. Lashes won-t let you down. Smudge-proof, clump-proof. .25 oz. net wt. As seen in National Magazines


Sleep seven hours every night
Sleep refreshes your body. If you regularly get only a few hours of sleep at night, it will hinder metabolism and hormone production in a way that is similar to the effects of aging, warns Dr. Joseph Mercola, author of "The No-Grain Diet." He says seven hours a night is the absolute minimum for all of us, and some folks benefit from more. His advice: Be in bed by 9 p.m. in the winter months and 10 p.m. the rest of the year.

The No-Grain Diet
Impressively modern in design, The No-Grain Diet brings a realistic viewpoint to the problems of weight loss in a genuine effort to improve the health of an ever-growing number of obese Americans. Offering a variety of "food plans," along with a set of techniques aimed at controlling emotional eating and cravings for "bad" foods, Dr. Joseph Mercola clearly understands how to motivate us--in one section, he suggests that rather than "living by the scale," we measure our success in relation to the fit of our favorite pair of slightly-too-snug jeans. Many recipes are included, most of which are free of the boring flavor substitutes so common in diet books.


High energy
You'll look and feel better if you eat the right kind of fat--specifically nuts. Peanuts, walnuts, and almonds are best. They slowly release their good fat, giving you more endurance for the day's demands.

Flaunt your figure
Once you hit 40, Houston-based image consultant Karen McCullough has some surprising advice for women: "Don't be too covered up. Show your clavicles or some cleavage, but make sure to wear a well-fitting bra for support." If you're letting a little show on top, wear a longer skirt of slacks. You don't want to look trashy. She also told the Plain Dealer this tip: Trousers that are slightly too big make you look much skinnier than trousers that are a bit too tight.

Brenda Kinsel is the fairy godmother of fashion.
