As you grow older, healthy cells are less produced in your body which leads to many complications such as a weak immune system and rapid aging. Naturally, the body fights against free radicals with the help of vitamins such as vitamin C, vitamin A and Vitamin E. however, the food you eat cannot supply you the right amount of vitamins for destroying free radicals. Protandim claims to address these issues and destroys millions of free radical every second which means that your body will become stronger that it can delay the signs of aging.

But as we go little at subtle level, it has been found that as we grow older, our chakras(Energy centres) get depleted, subsequently, our immunity weakened. So, We must also focuss on increasing the prana, the vital life force, in our subtle and gross bodies!!!!!!
