SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LifeVantage Corporation (Nasdaq:LFVN) announced and launched an addition to its Protandim® line of nutrigenomic products during the company’s Elite Academy in Long Beach, Calif., over the weekend.
The new product, known as Protandim® NAD Synergizer™, is the company’s first such addition to the flagship line since the launch of Protandim® Nrf1 Synergizer™ in 2016.*
“Our Protandim® line of synergizers is really what distinguishes us from other health and wellness companies, and we’re proud to introduce this latest breakthrough in nutrigenomic science and the newest member of the Protandim® family to the U.S. market,” said LifeVantage CEO Darren Jensen. “We are blazing a new trail of products that don’t simply add or ‘supplement’, but, rather, that tell your body to ‘create’.”*
Similar to how its predecessors in the product line activate the Nrf1 and Nrf2 pathways to boost mitochondrial function and antioxidant production respectively, Protandim® NAD Synergizer™ has been specifically formulated to target the Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) molecule and NAD-dependent pathways to activate a class of proteins called sirtuins and, ultimately, increase sirtuin activity.*
Sirtuin activity has been linked to a host of health benefits. In addition to being responsible for cellular autophagy (cellular cleanup and renewal process), sirtuins improve mental focus and concentration, support positive mood and motivation, boost mental and physical energy, support the body’s healthy inflammation response, maintain cholesterol levels already in a healthy range, and support a healthy vascular system.*
Sirtuin activity naturally declines by as much as 60 percent as humans age. Research has long shown that sirtuin activity can be increased by as much as 94 percent through drastic caloric restriction. Protandim® NAD Synergizer™ has been shown to increase sirtuin activity by 100 percent in just 24 hours without restricting calories.*
“One of the distinctions between LifeVantage and our competitors is we’re flipping the switch on NAD dependent processes so that your body can produce and activate sirtuins,” said LifeVantage Sr. Vice President of Research & Development Dr. Brian Dixon. “The more we know what switches to flip and how to flip them, the greater the control we can have over maintaining our health. A number of variables can flip the switches. In our case, we flip them nutrigenomically — utilizing specific blends of nutrients to positively affect gene expression.”*
Protandim® NAD Synergizer™ was made available for purchase for the first time during the company’s Elite Academy in Long Beach and is now available for purchase nationwide through the company’s distributorship and on its web site. The new product is currently available only in the U.S.
The entire Protandim family of products — Protandim® Nrf1 Synergizer™, Protandim® Nrf2 Synergizer™, and Protandim® NAD Synergizer™ — is also available for purchase in a new stack known as Protandim® Tri-Synergizer™.
