Ultimate Protector: An NRF2 Activator
and Much More
Ultimate Protector is an advanced cell protection formula that delivers a full spectrum of high ORAC antioxidants, protective Nrf-2 activators, and high levels of non-GMO Vitamin C. No other single product available today offers such complete cell protection! Ultimate Protector is a quantum leap forward in total antioxidant protection from all types of free-radicals! At 486,000 ORAC5.0 units per day, this is the most potent antioxidant formula you'll find, anywhere!
Ultimate Protector is the most effective cell protection, antioxidant formula ever formulated. Not only does it provide extraordinary protection for cells, but because it so effectively quenches free radical activity, it supports the regenerative health of tissue and organ systems in the body. Ultimate Protector protects you from oxidative stress that both contributes to poor health and results from poor health.
A Systems Approach
Providing either too few phytochemicals or engaging in a shotgun approach has resulted in the weak formulas often found in other Nrf2 activator products. These Nrf2 activator formulations typically fail to consider the relationships between high ORAC antioxidants to high Nrf2 activation potential and do not realize the potential of effectively combining phytochemicals. Dr. Hank Liers designed Ultimate Protector with an understanding that a “systems approach” is the best way to integrate the three aspects of the formula (Nrf2 activators, high potency antioxidants, and high-quality Vitamin C). Ultimate Protector includes the most effective combination of ingredients that leverage the full power of high-ORAC antioxidants, high potency Nrf2 activators, and Vitamin C. It provides the highest antioxidant ORAC value per gram of any formula on the planet!
Directions for Use
DIRECTIONS: As a dietary supplement take two capsules three times daily with food or as directed by a health care professional.
What Makes Ultimate Protector so Powerful?
The Secret is NRF2 Activation
What makes our formula so uniquely powerful? Ultimate Protector starts with NRF2 activators, adds non-GMO Vitamin C, which combine to create incredibly high ORAC5.0 levels.
1) A Full Spectrum of Nrf2 Activators
It is known that the best Nrf2 activators are plants that, while not necessarily antioxidant rich, have the ability to trigger vigorous antioxidant production. In order to survive under a variety of environmental or intracellular stresses, our cells have developed highly efficient protective mechanisms to protect themselves from oxidative or electrophilic challenges. Ultimate Protector provides an unprecedented range of natural Nrf2 transcription factor activators that allow the body to make its own antioxidant enzymes (e.g., superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione peroxidase).
“...there is no other product that even comes close.”
– Dr. Mark Sircus
Some background: antioxidant enzymes are regulated at the DNA/genetic level by the antioxidant responsive element (ARE). Nrf2 (pronounced “nerf-2”) is an important protein that remains dormant within each cell of our body, unable to move or perform its task, until released by an Nrf2 activator. When Nrf2 is released by an activator it migrates to the cell nucleus and bonds with the DNA at the place where the ARE resides. In this way Nrf2 activation provides a pathway for the production of our body’s most essential antioxidants. This hypothesis has been supported in many studies.
Nrf2 is normally bound in the cytoplasm of cells to a protein called KEAP1. However, when an appropriate photochemical agent attaches to a kinase receptor on the cell wall a phosphate group is released that causes the Nrf2 to be released. The Nrf2 then migrates into the cell nucleus and causes an antioxidant enzyme to be fabricated and released. This endogenously produced enzyme then can protect against ROS, electrophiles, and other toxic agents. In practical experience, it has been found that a combination of multiple polyphenols works significantly better than single ingredients. In fact, in one experiment it was found that a combination of five ingredients all known to be Nrf2 activators was 18 times more effective than any single ingredient. Furthermore, it was found that this combination of five ingredients was able to increase levels of SOD by 30% and catalase by 56% after 120 days of taking the combination.
We've included a comprehensive range of Nrf2 activators in Ultimate Protector. These include a selected variety of freeze-dried and concentrated fruits, vegetables, and herbs. These include Wild Blueberry, Wild Bilberry, Acai, Black Currant Extract, Sweet Cherry, Raspberry, Elderberry, Blackberry, Aronia, Black Soybean Hull Extract, Blue Corn, CoffeeBerry®, Curcumin (standardized extract with 95% curcuminoids from Turmeric), Trans-Resveratrol (98% from Giant Knotweed), Grape Seed, Cranberry, Tart Cherry, Prune, Raspberry Seed, Strawberry, Quercetin, Broccoli, Broccoli Sprouts, Tomato, Kale, Carrot, Brussels Sprouts, Onion, and Spinach.
2) A Non-GMO Vitamin C Product
Historically, high-quality, USP grade Vitamin C has been obtained from corn, potatoes, and/or beets. Unfortunately, many of these sources have gone to genetically modified (GMO) variants. In Ultimate Protector we use only non-GMO material to make both calcium and magnesium ascorbates using a “water method” process. This water method produces Vitamin C that is absorbed and retained in the body far better than Vitamin C produced by traditional methods. Two capsules of Ultimate Protector provide 500 mg of Vitamin C. This is 100% Non-GMO Vitamin C!
3) Extremely High ORAC5.0 Antioxidant Sources
Oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) has been the traditional method of measuring antioxidant capacities in biological samples. Studies associate the five major types of free radicals (i.e., hydroxyl, peroxyl, peroxynitrite, singlet oxygen, and superoxide anion) with health conditions such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, breakdown of vital proteins, chronic inflammation, and Alzheimer’s disease. Antioxidants function as a vital line of defense against free radicals by blocking their attack on DNA, vital proteins, lipids, and amino acids. Until now, efforts to identify the effect of antioxidants on all five types of free radicals were constrained by limited testing procedures. Historically, the ORAC assay, the industry-standard test, could measure only antioxidant activity from the peroxyl radical. ORAC5.0 changed that forever. Because of the development of the Total ORAC 5.0 test, it is now possible to target and measure the effects of antioxidants on the five major types free radicals found in the body.
"Ultimate Protector offers unprecedented ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) values that act as an overwhelming antioxidant blanket that will smother inflammatory free radical fires. It will reduce pain, inflammation and reduce oxidative stress in humans quickly if taken in high enough dosages. Within a few short days of a million or two ORAC units a day, one can realize significant relief.”
– Dr. Mark Sircus
Brunswick Labs has tested Ultimate Protector using the new ORAC 5.0 tests. The results reveal an incredible overall ORAC 5.0 value of 173,000 µmole TE/gram (i.e, 173,000 per gram), an exceptionally high ORAC value. In addition, the results show that the formula offers excellent protection against all of the five major types of free radicals. Specifically, the results show values of 6,300 (µmole TE/gram) for peroxyl radicals, 5,900 (µmole TE/gram) for hydroxyl radicals, 2,500 (µmole TE/gram) for peroxynitrite, 106,000 (µmole TE/gram) for superoxide anion, and 52,000 (µmole TE/gram) for singlet oxygen. The table (below) shows for each free radical type the ORAC 5.0 daily values for six capsules of Ultimate Protector containing 2.81 grams of the formula.
The overall daily ORAC 5.0 value obtained by adding the values for each free radical type is 486,000 units (173,000 units x 2.81 g)! To the best of our knowledge there is no other product that even comes close to providing such complete protection both in terms of breadth of coverage and overall strength.
