I came across this recently and was really curious about it. Are there any studies on this product? It looks like there is a lot of studies on Nrf2 but was wondering about studies on this actual product.
Supplements and scientific studies. You will notice that many individual ingredients in quality supplements have been studied but quite often a particular product that is a combination of ingredients has been tested. This is true for a couple of reasons. A good study with a high number of people will cost an amazing amount of money. It is hard to get grants for such studies unless it is initiated by a high profile university. This wouldn't be a problem if the supplements were sold for $30 a pill instead of $45 for a bottle of 90. Also consider that in a study, maybe 75% of the subjects had the measurable response. How will you know if you are in the 25% or the 75% group? In reality each one of us is a scientific study in itself. You will have to test, treat and retest to see what is working for you. Sometimes a lab test number will help you decide if it is working and sometimes it will be more subjective like more energy at 4 p.m. or clearer skin for example. Also if a product is tested and found to be effective for a particular disease process, it will then come under some intense scrutiny by the FDA as the line between supplement and drug might get blurred. I talked with one supplement company owner some time ago about publishing his studies that I know he has done. He said it is more desirable to sell the product, not make any specific claims and avoid the FDA.
