GNLD nutritionals are based on whole-food nutrition, with vitamins, minerals and nutrients that are derived from whole food sources. You start with the nutrition foundation of Pro Vitality, then you add products based on your health needs.
Sports nutrition refers to an area of nutrition that is specifically designed to provide energy to support an active lifestyle, that includes supplements with micronutrients and macronutrients that support tissue growth and repair, since athletes and active people regularly work their muscles and joints, cardiovascular system and immune systems. They push their bodies to the absolute limits, so it’s important to maintain their health during training through to the next competitive event.
Let’s talk specifically about athletes and active people, who experience a high level of physical activity and need to rebuild their cells at a faster rate. They put their bodies through a lot of physical stress, and because of this, they need some nutritional reinforcements. In addition to the nutritional foundation of Pro Vitality, GNLD has products that can help support the immune system, cardiovascular system, as well as bones and joints, which are all areas that are important to athletes and active people.
For the professional athlete, sports performance involves three phases; training, competition, and recovery. Nutrition is critical in all three phases. When you’re training, you focus on your endurance, building muscle, minimizing injury. In competition, you focus on all of the above plus performance and maintaining energy. After competition in the recovery phase, you focus on all of the above plus maintaining muscles and strength, and supporting your immunity. Nutrition is Critical through each of these phases. Let’s talk specifically about why.
Inadequate nutrition has been shown to result in poor athletic performance, loss of muscle mass and bone structure, and prolonged immune dysfunction. This is why it is important to maintain a good nutritional intake with micronutrients plus carotenoids, as well as macronutrients – or carbohydrates, fat and protein, – consuming complex carbohydrates such as fruits and vegetables and whole-grain sources such as whole wheat, brown rice, soy, and minimizing simple carbs, choosing healthy fats, and consuming low-fat protein such as fish. In addition to losing water, athletes lose sodium and potassium through perspiration, so water and electrolytes are essential for proper hydration and to keep the body working properly. Proper nutrition essentially provides protection against oxidative and inflammatory events, which occur when the body experiences intense regular workouts. Athletes have the same needs as regular people, but their needs are magnified because of the hardships that their bodies go through as they prepare for competition -- through intense training and in striving for optimum performance.
One way to help ensure the body is prepared nutritionally is to get down to the cells. What are muscles made of? Cells. If cells are healthy, the body is healthy. Our bodies are composed of trillions of cells which must work efficiently if we are to stay healthy, and in the case of athletes and active people, their cells are constantly breaking down and must be rebuilt. Whole grain lipids and sterols promote healthy cellular function.
Tre-en-en is the world’s first whole food supplement that provides lipids and sterols from whole food blend of extracts from wheat, rice and soy that literally feed our cells. It was proven in a study conducted at the Texas A&M University that Tre-en-en has a positive effect on nutrient utilization efficiency at the cellular level by optimizing the function of the cell membrane, so that nutrients can get in and waste can get out. This results in enhanced energy at the cellular level which in turn energizes your whole body by helping your cells function more efficiently.You’ll see a legend at the bottom right of the screen, which gives you an idea of which phase each product applies to. This is just a guideline.
Sports 30 is a specially formulated Daily Vitality Pack that supplies an abundance of balanced, high-potency nutrients that are in high demand during periods of physical activity. This is for active people at every level of performance – whether you are a weekend warrior or a world-class marathon runner. In addition to our exclusive Formula IV Plus, each packet contains: Liver + C, a traditional source of energy-related nutrients; and micronutrients such as Vitamin E for antioxidant protection; B-vitamins for energy production; and vitamin C and bioflavonoids to support immunity and nutrient absorption.
GNLD’s Liver Plus C is contained in Sports 30 and it is also sold separately. Beef liver is a densely nutritious food, rich in high-quality protein, B-complex vitamins (particularly B12), plus iron and an array of trace minerals. Because of the synergistic ratios in which these nutrients naturally occur, liver is an excellent energy food. Laboratory research has shown that animals consuming diets supplemented with concentrated liver showed greater endurance in physical trials than those receiving only a standard diet. Liver Plus C is a superior, concentrated source of natural “antifatigue” nutrients from liver, enhanced by the antioxidant properties of vitamin C to protect liver from oxidation and enhance nutrient absorption. We use the highest quality dessicated liver with no hormones, antibiotics or pesticide residues. This product has no cholesterol. There are no artificial ingredients.
Protein has an important role for physically active people, before, during, and after exercise. It provides the building blocks to build, repair, and maintain muscles. CLICK!Before ExerciseIntake of amino acids and protein before resistance exercise can maximize stimulation of muscle protein synthesis. In other words, this gets the ball rolling with regard to your body using protein to benefit your muscles.CLICK!During ExerciseIngesting a protein and carbohydrate mix during resistancetraining promotes increased muscle glycogen (thepredominant muscle fuel), and helps offset muscle damage tofacilitate greater training adaptation.CLICK!After ExercisePost-exercise protein intake can enhance and even acceleratethe replacement of depleted muscle glycogen and significantlyreduce muscle soreness following exercise, especially ifadequate carbohydrates are not readily available.http://www.jissn.com/content/4/1/8
Here’s a list of the 22 amino acids and which of those are branched-chain amino acids, or BCAA’s.It’s worth mentioning that BCAA’s, which are isoleucine, leucine, and valine, are particularly important for athletes when it comes to muscle growth and strength. Because of their unique structure, these amino acids are known to take the “fast track” to your muscles following exercise. In a 2006 study leucine was shown to support muscle growth and maintenance by both building new muscle and decreasing the rate of muscle degradation.
So, to repair cells and create new muscle tissue, the body must have a supply of dietary protein that includes all 22 amino acids involved in human nutrition. Protein can serve as a valuable, long-term energy source, enhancing endurance levels. Super Ease is a delicious, nutritional protein drink for muscle building. The protein in Super Ease is formulated to match the amino acid profile of whole egg, which is one of nature’s perfect protein sources. It’s low in fat, provides 11 grams of protein per two tablespoon serving, and has absolutely zero transfats.Super Ease can be taken either before a workout or after, or both. When taken before a workout, it provides timed energy release that can help sustain you throughout your workout. After a workout, the protein is used for muscle building and repair.Processing is also important to maintain a high quality product. GNLD’s exclusive Protogard Process is our special low-temperature processing that protects protein structure. We also include an special plant-derived enzyme blend to improve their digestibility. In addition, Super Ease has a Protein Digestion Corrected Amino Acid Score, or PDCAAS of greater than 1.49. This number expresses how the protein’s amino acid profile compares against that of a high-quality protein standard, and how fully the protein is digested. Since an excellent PDCAAS score is 1.0, this product is clearly a great choice.
It has been pretty well established that exercise is good for the immune system. In the right amount, it can be beneficial. But too much exercise can overstress the body, increasing the chance of infection due to a stressed immune system. In a June 2001 report by the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sport Research, 60 to 90 percent of amateur and professional athletes who do NOT over-train report they have fewer colds than people who don’t exercise at all. What does it mean to get too much exercise? There was also a study done at Appalachian State University that showed that athletes that engage in extreme exercise, such as biking or running for two hours or more per day experience significant yet short-term depressions of their immune functions.
When I think of immunity, probably because I’ve worked in the health and wellness industry since 2000, I instantly think of antioxidants. Carotenoids contribute to antioxidant activity in cellular lipids, support normal cellular growth and renewal, and assist in healthy levels of immune cell activity. Carotenoids also promote cardiovascular health and they deliver powerful antioxidant protection such as from UV light and toxins like cigarette smoke that are linked to risk for cancer. Carotenoids come from fruits and vegetables, which are important for everyone, and especially athletes who need greater nutritional support because of the stress that their bodies go through.
GNLD Carotenoid Complex provides broad spectrum carotenoid-rich extracts and concentrates from tomatoes, carrots, spinach, red bell peppers, strawberries, apricots and peaches. 15 powerful carotenoid family members provide strong antioxidant power This product was tested and proven in a USDA study to boost immune capacity by 37% in just 20 days. This product is so unique, it’s patented And research conducted on GNLD Carotenoid Complex has spanned over more than 15 years, and has been published in some of the world’s most prestigious journals [such the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, FASEB, the Journal of American College of Nutrition as well as Free Radical Biology and Medicine]**Also mention: Flavonoid Complex, Cruficerous Plus
Vitamin C is an essential water-soluble antioxidant that protects cells from free-radical damage. It’s an immunity booster, and it helps the body absorb iron, which is another important nutrient for athletes. Vitamin C: Activates immune cells—NK cells and protectorsImproves antimicrobial/antiviral immune competenceShortens recovery time—colds and flu – this is important when you are training so you can get right back into your program(works together with zinc)

Intense exercise can put a strain on bones, not to mention the body loses calcium through sweat. Calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D are needed to build and maintain bone density and strength. Regular daily intake of calcium for adults is 1000 mg per day for men and women; for athletes it increases to 1300-1500 mg per day.And, according to Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz in their book, "You, The Owner's Manual,” for every 30 minutes of sweating exercise, they suggest adding an additional 100 milligrams, since calcium comes out in sweat. And, a randomized, double-blind parallel trial was done in 2007 with 106 patients with acute knee injury. The study demonstrated significant improvement in knee flexion and extension among the control group at 28 days as compared with the placebo group. The amount of glucosamine was 1500 mg per day.
GNLD’s Chelated Cal-Mag® with Vitamin D3 ---Provides a unique and convenient way to deliver calcium, magnesium and 1000 IU high-potency Vitamin D3 to the diet each day.

FULL MOTION is sulfite-free to minimize allergic reactions.
Let’s talk about the benefits of omega-3s for athletes.A 2010 study published in the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport showedthat omega-3 fatty acids can boost lung function.19 Another 2010 study pointed to their ability to reduce oxidative and inflammatorystress in lung tissue.20 And another study the prior year, in 2009, showed that omega-3 supplementation was helpful in ameliorating “delayed onset muscle soreness”, you know the feeling of sore muscles a few days after you’ve worked out too hard after not working out for a while? There is actually a name for that. Sports medicine experts recommend daily intakes of 1-2 grams of omega-3 fatty acids for athletes to mediatemuscle and joint inflammation.Adequate intake of omega-3s promotes a healthy balance of inflammatory and anti-inflammatory forces throughout the body which can be very beneficial for athletes.
OMEGA III SALMON OIL PLUSIs an Ultrapure, Concentrated Salmon Oil that Works to balances and regulates the cellsUHP03 stands for Ultra High Potency Omega 3s.Each 3 capsule serving provides:1070 mg total omega-3s460 mg of EPA480 mg of DHA50 mg DPA & 80 mg of the othersA healthful “salmon dinner’s worth” of omega-3’sAnd since we use the proprietary molecular differentiation process, this is the only product that provides you all eight beneficial omega-3s that are found in human nutrition, in high potency, and is also ultrapure since we screen for 200 different potential contaminants with an allowable detection limit of zero!
Three of the products I just talked about: lipids and sterols from Tre-en-en Grain Concentrates, Omega-3s from Salmon Oil Plus, and powerful antioxidants from fruits and vegetables in Carotenoid Complex, are available in convenient packs. Pro Vitality is based on whole food nutrition that provides solid nutritional support for both athletes and weekend warriors. This is everyone’s nutritional foundation.
You know, GNLD sponsors athletes all over the world. These are just a few athletes we sponsor that were featured in GNLD Lifestyle magazine. With GNLD, Jamaican high jumper Sheree Francis on the left has more energy during training with a quicker recovery time. Darian Townsend on the right, is a South African swimmer who said that he recovers more quickly with GNLD supplements, after rigorous physical training. There are so many success stories from athletes who swear by GNLD products.
Back in March, GNLD became aware of a young man from the Bay Area, his name is Noah Coughlan, who is running across the US to raise awareness of Batten Disease. Raised as a GNLD baby since his mother Deborah has been a GNLD distributor for 25 years, it was natural for Noah to turn to GNLD products to help him on his incredible journey. Here he is to tell us a few words.In just a few days, this Saturday (July 9, 2011) he will be completing this 2,500 mile trek. He has spread the message to over 200,000 people in the past four months. Let’s keep him in our thoughts as he wraps up the last leg of this enormous accomplishment.You can read more about Noah and how GNLD products help him in the latest issue of Lifestyle magazine, and visit bdsra.org for more information on Batten Disease.
