At the time of writing there are over 22,200 searches on Google each and every month for a valid ‘diabetes treatment‘… this particular article will discuss one or more of a possible many ‘type 2 diabetes treatment‘ options, with the introductory part discussing a pro-oxidant supplement marketed through LifeVantage, known as: Protandim.
I personally don’t have type 1 or type 2 diabetes (as far as I know), although I am a great believer that first and foremost our health is our greatest wealth… there is much to be discussed on that thought alone, although perhaps that is more of a philosophical discussion to be had at another time as such topics are usually subjective to the individual, and may most certainly evolve as we traverse this journey we most whole-heartedly call Life. Today’s truth may be tomorrow’s fallacy, and vice-versa.
Such discussions aside, let us delve deeper at exploring the five natural ingredients that comprise Protandim, and bear witness as to how they may help prevent and possibly even reverse your type 2 diabetes. But first I invite you to view the following testimonial of someone who has used this particular supplement to effectively treat their diabetes:
Now I don’t know the person presenting the video and as such cannot vouch for the testimonial, although it seems highly plausible to me considering the studies that have been documented on the effectiveness of using herbs such as turmeric for type 2 diabetes treatment. The other ingredients within the product that may work synergistically to help alleviate your diabetic troubles include milk thistle, bacopa, ashwagandha, and green tea extract. A quick google search has highlighted the following…
Milk thistle shows promise as a defense against diabetes and diabetes-related complications, including damage to the kidneys and blood vessels. Often used to boost liver health and support detox efforts, milk thistle is rich in antioxidants (natural substances known to knock out free radicals). In turn, many diabetes-related complications are linked to oxidative stress (a process that results from overproduction of free radicals). By protecting against oxidative stress, studies suggest, milk thistle may aid in the treatment of diabetes. (Alternative Medicine)
Ashwagandha might help lower blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes and lower high cholesterol. Since ashwagandha has sedative effects, it could help ease anxiety and stress — in fact, human studies have indicated as much. The root and berry of the ashwagandha plant are a traditional Ayurvedic medicine in India. Ashwagandha is used as a tonic (it is sometimes referred to as the “Indian ginseng”) to improve physical and mental health and to treat a number of specific conditions. (Web MD)
Turmeric is a perennial herb that is cultivated mainly in Asia as a spice. Numerous research studies have proven the use of turmeric in treating diabetes and its complications. Turmeric demonstrates anti-inflammatory property by modulating various pathways and activity of many proteins. These mechanisms find their use in suppressing inflammation caused due to diabetes and preventing its proliferation. Oxidative stress plays a major role in pathogenesis of diabetes… Turmeric, a known antioxidant, scavenges ROS, inhibits lipid peroxidation and increases the levels of antioxidant enzymes. This property of turmeric can help reduce oxidative stress observed in diabetes. Various research studies have confirmed the efficacy of turmeric in treating symptoms associated with diabetes. One remarkable property of turmeric that has been exploited for this purpose is its ability to reduce blood sugar. (Turmeric For Health)
Green Tea contains high amounts of polyphenols (antioxidants). Polyphenols are known to have anti-oxidative properties which can help protect against inflammation and carcinogens. In other words, the properties in tea can help to prevent Type 2 Diabetes as well as cancer. Epidemiological studies suggest the possibility of green tea being a novel strategy for treatment or prevention of obesity and type 2 diabetes, which are closely linked. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), is a polyphenol, and is the most abundant form of catechin in green tea. It has been known to be the main attributable factor of beneficial effects of green tea. Through a complex biochemical reaction, EGCG in green tea helps sensitise cells so they are better able to metabolise sugar. (Green Tea In 3)
One thing that has been mentioned consistently in the aforementioned articles is the issue of oxidation… Oxidative stress which is generated through the process of living life (such as eating, sleeping, breathing, and exercising,) is inevitable for everyone. Protandim is the first product in history to which has been clinically and scientifically proven to reduce oxidative stress by over 40% within 30 days, whilst increasing glutathione 300% within 30 days. PubMed shows that there are over 77,000+ studies linking oxidative stress to over 200 diseases.

Now I’m reluctant to say or believe that one such ‘fountain of youth‘ product will cure or successfully treat any or all of your ailments, such as type 2 diabetes as discussed above. Although based on the scientific studies presented, alongside the glowing testimonials, and the evident use of such herbs in eastern medicine for thousands of years… Protandim may very well be a step in the right direction for a healthier, disease free life 🙂 If you feel that you may like to explore the possibilities yourself, you are more than welcome to purchase the Protandim pro-oxidant supplement from the official LifeVantage website by CLICKING HERE!
