Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website. My name is Michael (Mike) Sandburg. I was introduced to Protandim by a long-time friend who had started taking Protandim about a month before. Already she had seen improvement in a physical ailment that her doctors had said would never improve. Following surgery to her foot she experienced diminished mobility. As I understand it, the doctors said it was due to permanent nerve damage, the nerves having been unavoidably cut during surgery. While this condition had affected her for many years, after less than a month of using Protandim she was noticing markedly improved mobility in her foot. Wow!
So I was intrigued, having experienced some nerve damage of my own that my doctors were “perplexed” to explain. “I’m Perplexed” — that is exactly what my neurologist said when I sought answers to the question of why I was suffering from this condition. The neurologist and my family doctor had eliminated all of the causes they could think of. They prescribed several types of expensive drugs, none of which did any lasting good. The only drug that did anything for me was Vicodin to lessen the pain. But that is a dangerous drug to which I did not want to become addicted. Some of the other drugs the doctors prescribed had even more scary side effects, and they did nothing to alleviate the symptoms, much less offer a cure.
So I figured that if this dietary supplement — made from natural botanical extracts — could help my friend in a matter of weeks, perhaps there is something to this. I decided to research this thing, to learn more. After several days of constant research I became very impressed.
There was just ONE tiny problem. The product is distributed through multi-level marketing (MLM) aka Network Marketing, like Amway, Avon, and so many other similarly marketed products. In general, MLM has earned a negative reputation. Not all, of course, but many MLM opportunities have been questionable.
The MLM opportunities responsible for this negative reputation tend to generate revenue not from selling products, but rather, from selling the opportunity. I had seen numerous “circle artists” pushing various MLM programs. I call promoters of MLM circle artists because they present the opportunity growth pattern by drawing circles to represent you and all the people who join in the opportunity below you. You’ve probably heard the expression, “Three who get three, who get three.” The circle artists demonstrate how an organization magically grows to the point that you have a million people in your downline, all sending “residual income” up the chain to you. The downfall, however, is that so many of these opportunities do not have a truly unique product that is uniquely beneficial. As I said, in many cases the product pushed by the circle artists is the opportunity. I did NOT want to get into another one of those. Been there, done that.
But PROTANDIM IS DIFFERENT — in a very big way. This is a product that is, indeed, uniquely beneficial. That is not just marketing hype. This claim is supported by an abundance of peer-reviewed scientific literature. This is a product that has nearly 4 decades of history, from a remarkable discovery in 1968 to introduction of this product in 2006.
On this website we present several hours worth of videos to document the science behind Protandim. If you want to delve into the scholarly peer-reviewed articles supporting the science of oxidative stress, they are available for your examination — literally thousands of them — on PubMed.gov. At last check, Protandim alone has 15 peer reviewed articles published on PubMed.gov.
So we can accept the scientific validation of this product. This sets Protandim apart from the vast majority of products sold through Network Marketing.
If you are even vaguely curious about the business opportunity presented by this product, please watch the following 10-minute video, then read on.
More videos are available in our videos section.
But why Network Marketing?
Watch TV for more than a few minutes, and you will be sure to see commercials for a variety of pharmaceuticals. It almost seems that if it weren’t for the pharmaceutical and insurance industries, there wouldn’t be any TV commercials. Why can’t Protandim be marketed the same way?
The answer is two-fold. First, “Money.” Insurance companies pay for pharmaceutical drugs, and when your doctor prescribes them, most people don’t care that they are expensive. But Protandim is not a drug, and your insurance company is not going to pay for it. If LifeVantage, the maker of Protandim, had to pay for TV ads to sell the product, we could never afford to buy it.
Second, “Its complicated.” On this website we present close to 4 hours of videos to tell the Protandim story. Imagine paying for a 4 hour infomercial. That ain’t going to happen. Can you imagine stuffing all this information into a 30 or 60 second commercial? Impossible. And frankly, even if it could be done, would you believe enough to take action? Most of us are so callused to TV ads, we barely notice them anymore, much less be motivated to buy the product. When was the last time you picked up the phone to call Flo (Progressive Insurance), or in response to seeing the lizard with the British accent (Geico Insurance), to actually buy their products? And we all know we need insurance! Before encountering this website, did you know you needed Protandim?
Protandim is the perfect product for Network Marketing; and Network Marketing is the perfect way to distribute Protandim.
Instead of paying the TV networks, LifeVantage pays our network — you and me — for promoting Protandim. It is a win-win-win relationship. Customers win by getting an awesome product at an affordable price. LifeVantage wins by saving uncounted millions of dollars on the cost of advertising. You and I win by receiving a fair portion of the company’s savings. What’s not to like about that?
