Scientific research sounds like the queries of a toddler: Why? What? How? Over 50 years ago, a group of research scientists asked about aging. They wanted to understand the process and find out how to change it. They observed the effects of oxidative stress, a key contributor to the normal signs of the aging process. They discovered how the body naturally responds to this and developed Protandim® Nrf2 Synergizer®, the solution that decreases oxidative stress by 40%.*
The scientists never accepted aging as a fact of life: This is what happens when you age. You get weak, you get wrinkles, and you lose energy. LifeVantage was founded on this question, “What are we going to do about it?” It’s not what happens in life; it’s our response that matters. This origin of action drives all our products and our company.*

AGING & OXIDATIVE STRESS
Aging is an active process. It’s not something that simply happens to your body. We age as we eat, exercise, and even breathe. One of the paradoxes of life is that oxygen, the molecule that sustains aerobic life, also generates toxic “free radicals” that attack our cells. This damage is called oxidative stress, and it’s a natural consequence of cellular metabolism and key contributor to processes of aging,.*
Your body, however, is not defenseless. It naturally produces antioxidants that fight or “gobble up” free radicals. Two of these naturally occurring antioxidants are superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) activated through the Nrf2-pathway. In your youth, your body can combat free radicals and. But as early as your 20s, your SOD and CAT levels start to decline.*
AN ACTIVE SOLUTION
The question: What are we going to do about it? The answer: Find a way to increase the body’s ability to produce SOD and CAT—and alter the signs of the aging process. Our scientists turned to nutrition for the answer. They discovered that 5 key ingredients, when combined in the correct ratios, had the ability to decrease lipid peroxidation (TBARS; a measure of oxidative stress and indirectly inversely related to both SOD and CAT production) by an average of 40% in 30 days and restore oxidative stress to levels you’d expect to see in a 20-year-old. They named this break-through formula Protandim®, derived from “promoting the tandem” co-regulation of this powerful enzyme SOD and CAT duo.*
An anti-aging supplement sounded too good to be true. In 2005, ABC Primetime did an investigative report on this first Protandim® product. The reporter took Protandim® and his bloodwork showed a reduction of oxidative stress by 45% in just 2 weeks. The scientific community took notice, and the show prompted dozens of studies. Over 30 published independent studies validate the effectiveness of Protandim®. One report from Washington State University says, “It is our opinion that raising Nrf2 is likely to be the most important health promoting approach into the foreseeable future.”
Despite the evidence, this first Protandim® product didn’t sell as expected. We didn’t have a product problem. We had a distribution problem. Selling required explanation, so we turned to network marketing. It worked, and we sold over $30 million of Protandim® in the first year and over $100 million the second. By our third year, we reached nearly a quarter billion dollars in revenue.¹ Powered by devoted consumers-turned-Distributors, LifeVantage grew into a multinational, publicly-traded company within 5 years. Our products are now sold by over 50,000 Distributors in 17 countries and on 4 continents.
Protandim® Nrf2 Synergizer® technology serves as the foundation for our product development, and our research continues to focus on how our cells function, age, and heal.*
Collectively, our Distributors earn almost $10 million a month selling Protandim® Nrf2 Synergizer® and other LifeVantage products.¹
You can accept things as fact: This is how you age, and this is how you work. Maybe your job is something that just pays the bills or that provides security, but not fulfillment. You can recognize your options. You can take action. You can take a supplement, or you can start a business.¹ You can ask yourself, “What am I going to do about it?”
