Rooted in Research

Science is the
basis of everything
we do.

Protandim

We say it over and over again: LifeVantage is a different kind of company. It's evident in our people, our products and especially in our science. Our science is our foundation. Our science is one of the things that sets us apart from all the rest.

At LifeVantage, true science is a priority.

Throughout its history, LifeVantage was honored to have Dr. Joe McCord, a world-renowned scientist, co-discoverer of superoxide dismutase and the pioneer of Free Radical Biology, leading the scientific efforts of LifeVantage products. Dr. McCord is at the forefront of today's cutting-edge research and new discoveries related to the groundbreaking new science of Nrf2.

Today, LifeVantage is honored to have two renowned PhDs in its research and development department, Dr. Shawn Talbott, our Chief Science Officer, and Dr. Nathalie Chevreau, our Vice President of Product Development. Both are at the forefront of today’s research into health, wellness, nutritional supplementation and skin care, as well as continued discoveries related to the groundbreaking new science of Nrf2.

We're proud of the scientific studies that back our claims. We're also proud that our scientific studies are peer-reviewed and published.

And we're pleased to hold patents on Protandim, the most powerful Nrf2 synergizing supplement on the market. This makes its distribution an exclusive privilege of our independent distributors.

Superoxide Dismutase: an important antioxidant defense in nearly all cells exposed to oxygen.

The science behind Protandim is different and unique because LifeVantage Corporation doesn't pay for it. In the world of research, this means that the product and its science must be so compelling that Ph.D.s from universities around the world want to study it and want to spend their own time and money doing it. LifeVantage has a product other people are paying to study! That is unheard of, especially in the supplement industry. - Dr. Skip Campbell
