Protandim is a formula of five herbs that is sold through a multi-level marketing company. I am writing about it because some of our clients have asked for more information about it.
A stimulant. Protandim has a stimulant action on the body. This means that many people will feel better on it for a while. However, all stimulants eventually weaken the body. Therefore, after a few months or longer, you will feel weaker on this product. For this reason, I suggest avoiding it.
Yin. Herbs are also all quite yin in macrobiotic terminology. This is a physics quality that means expanded, cold and energy moving outward or in a centrifugal direction.
This type of energy is very harmful to the body, even if improves symptoms and makes a person feel better for a while. The reason is that the bodies are all somewhat yin to begin with. These products worsen this type of imbalance.
Stress fast oxidation. Protandim can put a person into a fast oxidation rate. However, it is not a healthy fast oxidation rate, based upon their hair mineral tests. It is a stress pattern that weakens the body.
Effects on development. If the body becomes too yin, Development stops and health will decline. This is one reason I donŐt recommend taking most herbs, even if they have powerful symptomatic effects.
