Upregulation of heme oxygenase-1 and activation of Nrf2 by the phytochemicals in protandim
Increased production of reactive oxygen species has been implicated in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease (CVD), with enhanced endogenous antioxidants proposed as a potential mechanism for promoting redox balance. Protandim is a well-defined combination of five widely studied medicinal plants derived from botanical sources [Bacopa monniera, Silybum marianum (milk thistle), Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha), Camellia sinensis (green tea), and Curcuma longa (turmeric)].
