SALT LAKE CITY, May 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LifeVantage Corporation (Nasdaq:LFVN), a company dedicated to helping people achieve healthy living through a combination of a compelling business opportunity and scientifically validated products, announced today that its most recent study on Protandim was presented at the 2014 Experimental Biology Conference held April 26-30, in San Diego, California.
Experimental Biology is an annual meeting attended by more than 14,000 scientists. The theme at the annual meeting of professional research scientists was "Transforming the Future through Science." Researchers from Colorado State University presented a study entitled Oxidative Stress is Decreased with Short-Term Protandim Use. The placebo-controlled double-blind study supplemented 33 overweight/obese adults, ages 45-69 for 30-days with LifeVantage's Protandim formula currently sold in Japan. Results indicated a significant reduction in markers of oxidative stress in subjects receiving this Protandim formulation.
Dr. Shawn Talbott, LifeVantage Chief Science Officer commented, "We are pleased to see clinical studies involving our unique products. This research will be added to our large and growing portfolio of scientific studies and builds on the growing collection of evidence supporting Nrf2 activation and oxidative stress reduction associated with Protandim. In addition, this study demonstrates that both of our formulations of Protandim are potent oxidative stress reducers. This allows us to offer people a powerful Nrf2 activator and oxidative stress reduction product in most jurisdictions."Abstracts of the conference can be found at the Journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology: Rebecca Scalzo, Janelle Davis, Joseph Beals, Laurie Biela, Gregory Giordano, Hunter Paris Benjamin Miller, Karyn Hamilton, and Christopher Bell, (2014) Oxidative stress is decreased with short-term Protandim use when piperine is substituted for ashwagandha (LB399) FASEB J April 28:LB399. http://www.fasebj.org/gca?allch=&submit=Go&gca=fasebj%3B28%2F1_Supplement%2FLB399 About LifeVantage Corporation LifeVantage Corporation (Nasdaq:LFVN), a leader in Nrf2 science and the maker of Protandim (®, the Nrf2 Synergizer ® patented dietary supplement, TrueScience TM Anti-Aging Skin Care Regimen with enhanced Nrf2 technologies, and LifeVantage ® Canine Health, is a science based network marketing company.
