SAN DIEGO, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- LifeVantage Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: LFVN), the maker of science-based solutions to oxidative stress, announced today that the Company has received formal approval from the Mexican government to launch its flagship product, Protandim®, in Mexico. Initial shipments have cleared customs and Protandim® has been shipped to distributors in Mexico.
In August 2009, as part of its expansion, the Company announced it had entered the international market with a pre-launch in Mexico, which ranks among the top five countries in terms of network marketing, according to the Direct Sellers Association (DSA).
"I'm excited Protandim® is finally in Mexico--it has been a long time in coming," said Dr. Daniel Hernandez-Saavedra, Research Director with the Biochemical Research Center in the National Medical Center of Mexico and a LifeVantage Scientific Advisory Board member. "We are enthusiastic about the potential health benefits to all in Mexico who use Protandim® as well as to the opportunities for future research that the availability of the product in Mexico will provide. I believe there is not another product like Protandim® in Mexico!"
Francisco Varela, National Sales Director of Mexico for LifeVantage Corporation commented, "We believe that the availability of Protandim® in Mexico is a great opportunity for consumers seeking to improve their health. Furthermore, with the arrival of Protandim® in Mexico, in addition to the availability of our TrueScience Anti-Aging Cream, our distributors are now fully empowered to enjoy the increased financial benefits of the LifeVantage business opportunity."

Protandim® is a clinically proven supplement that provides substantial benefits for healthy aging. This patented indirect antioxidant therapy works in a very different way than conventional foods such as red wine, oranges, blueberries or other popular antioxidant supplements. Unlike those types of products that have proven to be largely ineffective in reducing oxidative stress caused by free radicals, Protandim® is an indirect antioxidant therapy, which stimulates the body's production of its own powerful antioxidant enzymes. Protandim® works at the cellular level, triggering cells to naturally increase production of protective antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione synthase.
A peer-reviewed human clinical study showed that after Protandim® was taken for 30 consecutive days, important biochemical markers of aging were decreased by an average of 40%. The study also reported that these markers of aging were reduced in the subjects taking Protandim to the level of a typical 20 year old. Protandim® is currently the subject of approximately 20 scientific studies at universities and research facilities. The nature and stages of the studies vary.
Under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act, Protandim® is considered a "dietary supplement" and, as with all dietary supplements, Protandim® is not intended for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, mitigation or cure of any disease.
