Emmy Award-winning celebrity talk show host, author, entrepreneur, and LifeVantage Independent Distributor Montel Williams will be featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show on Tuesday, March 17, 2009. "After the Diagnosis with Montel Williams" will feature Montel's personal story, as well as his Living Well family of products. Williams recently added Protandim®, which is made by LifeVantage Corporation (OTCBB: LFVN), to his stable of Living Well products and Montel serves as a distributor for LifeVantage.
Montel Williams has been a fan of Protandim for several years, after a family member had a positive experience and shared it with him. Montel's passion for Protandim led him to approach LifeVantage to become a distributor, making the product available along with his line of Living Well health and wellness products.

Protandim® is a groundbreaking, clinically proven supplement that provides a substantial benefit to help with the challenges of healthy aging. This patented antioxidant therapy is more powerful than conventional foods such as red wine, oranges, blueberries or other popular antioxidant supplements. Protandim works by increasing the body's natural antioxidant protection at the cellular level, triggering cells to produce naturally occurring protective antioxidant enzymes such as super oxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione.
A peer-reviewed human study showed that after Protandim® was taken for 30 consecutive days, the accumulation of lipid peroxidation products (a biochemical marker of aging) was decreased by an average of 40%. The study also reported that this important marker of aging was decreased after taking Protandim® to the level of a typical 20 year old. Protandim® is currently the subject of over 20 scientific studies at leading universities and research institutes.
