Review and Results
Protandim has received a lot of reviews over years, and the most outstanding question about the product is whether it actually works or not and whether the product is safe or not. This will be answered in the review bit of the article;
A distributor noted that he had taken Protandim for over a year before he started distributing and noted that he had noted a lot of improvement as far as his blood functioning is concerned. He even claims to be glad for having tried the supplements before the scientific validations were out as his blood work and experience is a proof enough. He even noted that he feels his doctor is just but cautious as he is about to eliminate medications as he reduced his blood pressure medication doses twice after a consistent use of Protandim.
An arthritis victim noted that he was given a bottle of Protandim by a friend and no meaningful explanation was given to him by the friend and after two days consumption; he would wake up in the morning without the hips, hands and shoulders pains something he attributes to Protandim and thus to him the supplement works.
Another client noted that after being pressured by the family to try Protandim since they did not want to lose her to arthritis, she tried it out and after taking Protandim, she has noted stunning improvements in her health as she feels the that she has more energy than before, mental clarity and is complimented daily for her glowing skin. She even noted that she can now sleep throughout the night and have a good sleep.
Some clients are however negative about the product, one noted that after reading and listening to the positive reviews of the supplement, they decided to try out in spite of it being expensive. Since the time he started using, he has not noted any change in his energy levels and is remaining with one and a half bottle which he doesn’t intend to finish as he is planning to try out a different supplement.
In conclusion, it is clear that different clients have totally different feelings about the product. Those that have used Protandim and have worked for them cannot think of going for a different supplement at the expense of Protandim yet those that have been failed are just but frustrated. The best thing to do is to consult a clinical officer before using supplements so that they can tell that which works out for you depending on your healthy needs.
