Los Gatos Chiropractor Provides Anti-Aging Supplement Protandim

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 4, 2011) - McGrain Chiropractic of Los Gatos announced that the practice provides nutritional counseling, including supplements like the antioxidant Protandim. Protandim supplement acts as an endogenous antioxidant to help to combat free radical damage caused by stress, toxins and aging. The practice also helps patients who are trying to lose weight by designing customized dietary programs for optimized daily intake of nutrients and supplements. In addition to nutritional counseling, the practice also provides chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, acupuncture, natural pain management, massage therapy and core strengthening programs. Dr. McGrain has been practicing for over 26 years, serving the Campbell and Los Gatos communities.

"Scientific research shows that oxidative stress accelerates aging and problems associated with it," said Dr. McGrain. "In fact, oxidative stress is a root cause at the cellular level for the degeneration of our bodies. The antioxidant Protandim is one of the essential players in protecting the body against age-related health conditions."

Dr. McGrain believes in a whole body approach to wellness and focuses on providing care for the entire body through chiropractic adjustment, natural pain relief and nutritional counseling, including the FirstLine Therapy program.

"Proper nutrition is essential to keeping the body healthy and strong," said Dr. McGrain. "When we don't receive the right balance of nutrients and supplements, our body is at risk for illness, injury and fatigue. Supplements like Protandim can make a huge difference to your body's overall wellness."

According to scientific research, free radicals can damage the body's cells, causing oxidative stress which leads to inflammation and many degenerative diseases. According to eight different peer-reviewed scientific studies, Protandim protects cells from this damage by increasing the body's production of antioxidant enzymes, which enable the body to protect itself from oxidative stress and other types of stress.

"It's a fact of life that our bodies age -- but with the right supplements, we can manage this aging process to prevent serious cellular damage," said Dr. McGrain. "Eating healthy is more than just avoiding junk food and the drive-thru. It is essential that we give our bodies the fuel they need to thrive."

According to Dr. McGrain, every patient has unique wellness needs. She provides customized dietary advice for weight loss patients to help them optimize their overall health and wellness.

"Whether you are struggling to lose weight or get in shape, long-term lifestyle changes are necessary," said Dr. McGrain. "Campbell and Los Gatos nutrition patients choose our practice because we don't advocate fad diets or quick-fixes. FirstLine Therapy is a therapeutic lifestyle program that helps patients stay focused on making lifestyle changes for long-term well-being and weight management."
