About Sanjay Gupta
SANJAY GUPTA, M.D. is a practicing neurosurgeon at Emory University Hospital and associate chief of service at Grady Memorial Hospital. A columnist for TIME magazine and a chief medical correspondent at CNN, he lives in Atlanta, GA.
ProtandimÃ‚® is a unique approach to antioxidant therapy. The patent-pending dietary supplement increases the body’s natural antioxidant protection by inducing naturally occurring protective enzymes, including superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT). Oxidative stress occurs as a person ages, when subjected to environmental stresses, or as an associated factor in certain illnesses. TBARS are laboratory markers for oxidative stress in the body. Data from a scientific study in men and women, sponsored by LifeVantage, show that after 30 days of taking ProtandimÃ‚®, the level of circulating TBARS decreased an average of 40 percent. With continued use, the decrease was maintained at 120 days. For more information, please visit www.protandim.com.
