Once maximum benefit is achieved, Revivogen can be used a few times a week to maintain results.

Give yourself the clear skin you deserve.​
Heal and calm existing breakouts
Destroy acne-causing bacteria to minimize future breakouts
Restore your skin's clear and healthy appearance
LightStim patented LED Light Therapy is a powerful, effective, and natural solution to help achieve clear and healthy skin. It can be used on all skin types and tones.
In just minutes a day, you can heal existing blemishes, minimize future breakouts, and recapture your radiant glow.

WHAT IS LightStim?

Just like plants, our skin and other body tissues have the ability to absorb light and convert it into energy.

LightStim LED light therapy delivers light energy in a similar way plants absorb light energy from the sun. LightStim emits UV-free, beneficial light rays that energize cells and stimulate the body's natural processes.

Each LightStim product uses different wavelengths, or colors of light. When this beneficial light is applied directly to the skin it can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase blood circulation, and destroy acne bacteria.

Acne breakouts occur when our glands produce an excess amount of sebum (oil), clogging pores and allowing bacteria to grow.

CLEAR ACNE NATURALLY

Blue light destroys acne causing bacteria and Red light increases blood circulation, together, they help to clear existing breakouts and prevent them in the future.

This excess bacteria forms pustules or acne on the skin's surface.

Place the Light gently touching your skin and
hold in place for 3 minutes.
If desired, close the eye nearest to the Light.

Move the Light to the next area and repeat.

HOW TO USE LightStim FOR ACNE

Place the Light gently touching your skin and hold in place for 3 minutes.
If desired, close the eye nearest to the Light.

Move the Light to the next area and repeat.

PROTANDIM

Time to evolve from supplements to biohacking. Clinically proven to reduce oxidative stress in humans by 40% in 30 days.

 

What does Protandim do for you?

Protandim consists mainly of a blend of 5 herbal ingredients (amounts per caplet listed in parentheses): Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) extract (225 mg) Bacopa (Bacopa monnieri) extract (150 mg) Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) root (150 mg) Green tea (Camellia sinensis) extract (75 mg)

Protandim is the only supplement clinically proven (in a peer-reviewed, human clinical study) to reduce oxidative stress in humans by an average of 40 percent in 30 days. Protandim is protected by U.S. patents and is the subject of a number of peer-reviewed clinical studies. This patented antioxidant therapy is many times more powerful than red wine, oranges, blueberries, juices or other popular antioxidant supplements. Protandim works by increasing the body’s natural antioxidant protection at the cellular level by inducing the protein Nrf2 to trigger cells to produce naturally occurring protective antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase and the enzymes involved in glutathione synthesis and metabolism.

How is Protandim different from other antioxidant supplements?

Protandim is different from other antioxidant supplements in the way it works. Instead of providing the body with additional dietary antioxidants (regular supplements fall into this category and are commonly called consumable or “direct” antioxidants), Protandim works from within your body, to help fight free radicals and protect against oxidative stress. This is why Protandim is different than any other antioxidant on the market today; your body is actually producing the antioxidant power.

What are the side effects from taking Protandim?

These allergic responses to Protandim generally appear as gastrointestinal disturbances (i.e., stomach ache, diarrhea, vomiting) or sometimes as a headache or rash on the hands or feet. The symptoms typically disappear if Protandim is discontinued.

 

What are the 5 ingredients in Protandim?

Composition

  • Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) extract (225 mg)

  • Bacopa (Bacopa monnieri) extract (150 mg)

  • Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) root (150 mg)

  • Green tea (Camellia sinensis) extract (75 mg)

  • Turmeric (Curcuma longa) extract (75 mg)

Can Protandim help you lose weight?

If it could boost your metabolism, Protandim would be able to help you lose weight by increasing the amount of calories and fat that your body could turn into energy. However, this is not the main goal of Protandim.

What is protandim used for?

Protandim is a supplement containing a patented blend of herbs promoted to reduce oxidative stress.

How much caffeine is in Protandim?

Protandim contains 1.8 mg of caffeine per tablet. (By comparison, a Starbuck's coffee may contain up to 150 mg. and “caffeine free” coffee may typically contain between 4-7 mg).

What is Bacopa good for?

Bacopa (Bacopa monnieri) is an herb native to India that has been used traditionally in Ayurvedic medicine to enhance memory, learning and concentration and also to treat anxiety, heart problems, digestive disorders, asthma, and bronchitis.

What is nrf1 and nrf2?

Abstract. Nrf1 is a member of the vertebrate Cap`n'Collar (CNC) transcription factor family that commonly contains a unique basic-leucine zipper domain. Among CNC family members, Nrf2 is known to regulate a battery of antioxidant and xenobiotic-metabolizing enzyme genes through the antioxidant response element (ARE).

What is nrf 1?

Nuclear respiratory factor 1, also known as Nrf1, Nrf-1, NRF1 and NRF-1, encodes a protein that homodimerizes and functions as a transcription factor which activates the expression of some key metabolic genes regulating cellular growth and nuclear genes required for respiration, heme biosynthesis, and mitochondrial DNA ...

What is an nrf2?

One way the body takes care of repairing damage is to signal the production of antioxidant enzymes or survival genes through something known as the Nrf2 pathway. Nrf2 is a powerful protein that is latent within each cell in the body, unable to move or operate until it is released by an Nrf2 activator.

What is a nrf2 Synergizer?

Protandim Nrf2 Synergizer is a patented, science-based formula that has been researched, tested and validated by renowned universities and institutions. It is the only supplement proven in a clinical study to reduce the cellular stress in humans by an average of 40 percent in 30 days.
