Does Protandim Work?

A lot of people ask this very question. The short answer is that it has never been sufficiently tested and this website has shown that the company in general shouldn't be trusted as they've been caught purposely lying to the public about Protandim as well as breaking FDA and FTC laws in promoting it.

I want to share a few words from Chris Redmond that may help you see it clearly:

"Let’s look at Protandim, and create two simple models or theories.

Theory one is that Protandim works as LifeVantage claims. Now, if this were the case we could reasonably expect and predict the following:

  1. Anecdotal accounts of all round improvements in health, exactly as described in LifeVantage literature.
  2. Serious debate about Protandim in the media as the anecdotal evidence is subsequently supported by General Practitioners and health professionals who are able to corroborate these anecdotal accounts
  3. LifeVantage to start multiple human trials of Protandim, confident that any cost will be an investment as the science behind their product is solid, and the results being experienced by customers confirms Protandim’s effectiveness.
  4. Results from the trials show beyond a reasonable doubt that Protandim works as described.
  5. Medical professionals across the globe have instant access to the results of these studies, and en masse begin to endorse Protandim, with the proviso it is not a medication.
  6. Demand for Protandim increases dramatically, production struggles to keep up with demand, and as more results from trials are published LifeVantage’s stock is exploding.

If this model is the one anyone recognizes I’d be interested to know.

The second theory is that Protandim does not work, and if this was the case we’d could reasonably expect to see:

  1. Anecdotal accounts of all round improvements in health, exactly as described in LifeVantage literature.
  2. A lack of serious debate about Protandim in the media as the anecdotal evidence is not subsequently supported by General Practitioners and health professionals who are able to corroborate these anecdotal accounts.
  3. LifeVantage to avoid using multiple human trials of Protandim, as the science behind their product is not solid and the results being experienced by customers is only anecdotal and can be explained perfectly by placebo.
  4. Results from any human trials that are carried out show that Protandim does not work, or that placebo is more effective.
  5. LifeVantage do not carry out further human trials, preferring to cherry pick any positive results of trials involving ingredients of Protandim.
  6. Medical professionals across the globe do not take Protandim seriously because it has no trails or evidence to support the claims of it’s manufacturer.
  7. Demand for Protandim decreases, LifeVantage’s stock is imploding, it is decided to sell Protandim via the tried and tested avenue of pyramid marketing.

I could go on, anybody could, but basically Protandim fits the model of an over-hyped product with zero hard evidence of any health benefit perfectly, and LifeVantage perfectly fit the model of a company who realize this.

(I've taken the liberty to "Americanize" some of the British English. Hopefully Chris forgives me.)

    Really, all these scam stories of yours, they’re amazing. Personally, i’ve tried taking Protandim for 30days and it sure did what it’s claiming it would. I have kidney issues and a cyst that’s been operated and recurring. After a week of taking the product, I, personally felt all the changes in my body as it is my body. After three weeks went to my o.b. who said i will have to be operated on again and guess what? I just have to continue taking Protandim and there’ll be no repeat operations for me anymore. So, how about that? This is an honest to goodness personal experience.

  2. protandimscams Says:

    LifeVantage doesn’t claim that Protandim heals kidneys. Can you back up your story with documented evidence from your o.b. or is just another of the Various Health Claims by MLM Distributors…?

    By the way, No, Your MLM Health Product Doesn’t Work.

    Whatever you may believe and perpetuate negative NON-facts (as well as your other sites while you pretend to be other independent persons), my comparative 3rd party lab results cannot be refuted. 25 years of battling genetic dispositions for high cholesterol, diabetes and high blood pressure, for the first time, I’ve had notable improvements. I did NOT expect that and was skeptical that other physical ‘healings’ in MY body took place, coincidental with beginning to take Protandim. My Goldens with hip dysplasia had such notable improvements both the groomer and vet asked what I’ve been feeding them, after medications and other natural (expensive) supplements and prescription dog food never resulted in identifiable improvement. I’m very likely more educated than lazyman, graduated 2nd in my university class, and possibly much more professionally accomplished than he. So, in spite of my professional skepticism, I’ll believe in my own personal victories and continue to take Protandim and my dogs will always receive Canine Health without their knowledge. Lazyman, take your co-Q10 cuz irrefutable science and it’s double blind human studies prove benefits for heart health in one study and dangers to the heart in another. The world is indeed flat and Einsteen proclaims his biggest missed ‘fact’that scientists proclaimed for decades was that the universe was static. Lazyman must’ve missed Microsoft stock in 1984. My dad, Bless his Heart, didn’t! My line continues to grow around your hometown, with physicians partnered. So eat your heart out.

    Wow you left a very similar comment here: November 3rd, 2013 at 12:36 am. My response covers your 3rd party lab (you give no details about the lab, or the results… frankly there’s no reason to believe such a lab exists), your golden’s hip dysplasia (it can be a placebo effect due to documented scientific research)… read it here November 3rd, 2013 at 12:51 am.

    If you were more educated you may listen to yourself and your co-Q10 comment. There are many, many studies on co-Q10 and comparatively very few on Protandim, none of them independent due to McCord being an Author… and LifeVantage Shows the Research isn’t Independent either.

    Maybe you are just as educated as “Einsteen.”

    LifeVantage isn’t growing if you were educated enough to look at their quarterly revenue reports. And of course you are educated enough to bring up irrelevant stuff like Microsoft stock in 1984.

    It has consistently been the case that ardent defenders of silly scams like Protandim always come across as stark raving lunatics, like Leonard.

    Is it possible that anyone can be so lacking in self awareness as to not realize how counterproductive this type of behavior is, and how it ultimately reflects very poorly on LifeVantage?

    Leonard, your demonstration of idiocy is neither a rebuttal nor a defense of Protandim. I would invite you to take another shot but we both know how futile that would be.

    Take a bow and exit stage left.
