An important letter about supplements

  1. 1. An Important Letter About Supplements Dear reader, It seems like almost every day that I am asked how I successfully compete in Ironman triathlon and 15-20 additional endurance events every summer without destroying my immune system or metabolism. Of course, I do follow my own rules of eating 5-7 servings of fruits and vegetables per day and including high quality lean protein sources and monounsaturated fats in my diet. I also strictly limit high intake of simple sugars and large amounts of grain based carbohydrates. However, in addition to these practices, I strongly rely on nutritional supplementation to support muscle repair, cardiovascular recovery, and immune system health. Two supplements in particular have been the "main-frame" of my supplementation protocol: 1. EnerPrime Multi-Vitamin 2. Delta-E Energy Supplement I take 6 EnerPrime vitamin capsules every morning, and I supplement my intense exercise sessions and more important races with Delta-E (using the fact that caffeine is a proven ergogenic aid). These supplements are produced by a company called Impax - and this company actually sponsors my athletic endeavors. I truly am convinced that the strong immune system and recovery support from the EnerPrime supplement in particular is the primary reason I have only been sick *one time* in the 13 months since I started taking it. I am now able to release a 23% discount code that allows you to order these fantastic products, and I've specified below the simple steps to get started.

It's packed with nutrients, but low in sugar and carbs! ************************************ Enerprime Multi-Vitamin Price with discount: 29.64 for 1 month supply of capsules or 38.11 for 1 month supply of powder EnerPrime's components include superfoods, adaptogens, antioxidants, phytonutrients, herbs, enzymes and micronutrients. These all-natural elements join together with remarkable results, ranging from counteracting day-to-day stress to slowing the natural aging process.
  3. 3. Individuals using EnerPrime experience increased vitality, better endurance, improved sleep, increased ability to handle stress, increased resistance to illness and an overall sense of well- being. EnerPrime is a powder that can be mixed with water or your favorite juice using a blender or a mini hand mixer available from IMPaX. Contains the following: Hawaiian Spirulina: Contains 65% protein, higher than any other plant. Rich in vitamins and minerals, including the entire B-complex. Green Barley Grass: A rich source of chlorophyll, magnesium, protein, and trace minerals. Also a powerful antioxidant. Green Kamut Powder: An ancient grain from Egypt that has never been crossbred. Rich in chlorophyll, vitamins and nutrients, including vitamin E, magnesium, zinc, riboflavin, thiamine and niacin. Digestive and Cleansing Complex: Nature's Answer to Maximum Utilization of Nutrients Jerusalem Artichoke Inulin Concentrate: A complex carbohydrate which has most of the physiologic effects of fiber. It is also pro-biotic, supporting the growth of good bacteria and reducing putrefactive substances in the intestine. Dandelion Leaf Powder: One of nature's richest sources of beta-carotene. Used widely by herbalists for detoxification and digestive benefits. N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC): A superior form of the naturally occurring amino acid L-cysteine. Efficient precursor to the antioxidant glutathione, which assists the body in detoxification. Milk Thistle Extract: An antioxidant long used for its potent protective substances. Vegetarian Enzyme Complex: A proprietary formulation which allows EnerPrime to be utilized by the body. Supports the processing of foods in the intestine. DGL Licorice Extract: Long used for its beneficial properties for the stomach. Additional Support Nutrients Vegetarian Sodium RNA: A pure source of RNA for cell nutrition, providing the building blocks for immune system cells to duplicate and increase in number. Chromium Citrate: An essential mineral which supports the body's handling of dietary carbohydrates and assists in proper insulin utilization. The average American diet is chromium- deficient due to lack of chromium in our soil and a diet high in sugar. Physical activity can also increase the loss of chromium. Rice Maltodextrin: A natural carbohydrate with a mild sweetness. Natural Freeze-Dried Flavor: Derived from fruit.
  4. 4. Adaptogenic Complex: Nature's Answer to Counteracting Stress Eleutherococcus (Siberian Ginseng) Extract: Supports the body's ability to respond and adapt to stress and function at a higher level. Used successfully by athletes to improve performance. Reishi and Shiitake Mushroom Extract: Rich in phytonutrients which support the body's resistance system. It has long been used by Chinese Herbalists as a tonic to increase resistance to stress and increase vitality and longevity. Antioxidant and Phytonutrient Complex: Nature's Anti-aging and Defense System Isoflavone- Rich Tofu Powder: Contains unique phytonutrients, such as genistein, which are in the forefront of research for their tremendous health-promoting properties. High Lycopene Tomato Concentrate: A rich source of phytonutrients, including lycopene, a carotenoid that is proving to be even more powerful than beta-carotene as an antioxidant. Beta-Carotene (Vitamin A Precursor) and Carrot Powder: A rich source of alpha- and beta- carotenes, which are excellent antioxidants. Many scientists believe Americans are not getting adequate carotenes. High Anthocyanin Grape Skin Extract: A potent antioxidant. Reinforces blood vessels, collagen and elastin in the skin. It may be responsible for the French paradox (where people who drink red wine have less heart disease, even though they consume higher amounts of saturated fat and have higher serum cholesterol levels). High Allicin Potential Garlic Concentrate: Used since Biblical times for endurance and strength. Activated by water to form allicin, which has powerful antioxidant and cardiovascular-supportive properties. Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid): A powerful antioxidant and necessary nutrient for many systems of the body. Studies of vitamin C and the common cold continue to show a decrease in duration and severity of symptoms with vitamin C supplementation. Vitamin E (d-alpha Tocopheryl Succinate): A natural form of vitamin E and an important antioxidant which is beneficial in protecting the body against damage caused by environmental and chemical pollutants. Magnesium Citrate: Important for sugar metabolism and supporting bone health and density. Magnesium is often deficient due to the under-consumption of dark greens and other sources. Potassium Citrate: Under consumed by Americans and often depleted due to overuse of sodium and caffeine. Works with sodium to regulate the body's water balance. Rosemary Extract: A powerful natural antioxidant. Zinc Citrate: Maintains proper concentration of vitamin E in the blood. Zinc also works closely with vitamin A. L-Selenomethionine: An organic form of selenium and a vital antioxidant precursor when combined with vitamin E. Catalyst for the enzyme gluthathionine peroxidase.
  5. 5. Sodium Selenite: Works with L-selenomethionine and N-acetyl-L-cysteine. ************************************ Lean Factor Price with discount: 30.42 for 1 month supply LeanFactor is a proprietary formula with a synergistic blend of ingredients important for thyroid function and the addition of lean muscle tissue: Guggulsterones Guggul is another name for the plant Commiphora wightii. Clinical research has shown that it can significantly reduce cholesterol and triglycerides while increasing beneficial HDL. Indian research indicates that guggul improves the actions of the thyroid and its hormones. Forskolin Forskolin is the active component of Coleus forskohlii. It works to activate adenylate cyclase which in turn increases the amount of cAMP operating in cells. This increases the ability of cells to respond to signals from thyroid and adrenal hormones. Perhaps the best-researched aspects of Forskolin involve its ability to encourage lypolysis. It also inhibits the synthesis of fat in adipocytes (fat cells). The end result is its ability to increase the ratio of lean to fat tissues in the body. Potassium Thermogenesis is strongly related to the transport of potassium ions across the cell membrane. A depressed sodium potassium pump will lead to a depressed basal metabolic rate. LeanFactor includes a particularly beneficial source of this mineral, potassium aspartate, which increases energy levels. ************************************ Thermo Factor Price with discount: 29.65 for 1 month supply ThermoFactor is a synergistic formula that successfully addresses major issues associated with weight gain. Its ingredients provide powerful thermogenic support and help control the appetite and blood sugar balance: Citrus aurantium Extract (Advantra Z) Advantra Z is extracted from the dried immature fruit of the bitter orange. More effective than ephedrine upon thermogenesis, it increases metabolic rate without the side effects. It helps suppress appetite and increase the release of fatty acids from storage. Athletes benefit from the ability to exercise longer without exhaustion or lean tissue loss. Green Tea Extract (Camellia sinensis) Green tea works synergistically with Advantra Z to increase thermogenesis. It is recognized as an overall health tonic containing powerful antioxidants.
  6. 6. L-Tyrosine The amino acid L-tyrosine increases the appetite suppressing abilities of Advantra Z. It is a precursor to a number of neurotransmitters and hormones. L-tyrosine is a minor stimulant for the release of growth hormone (GH) and thus important for metabolism (including thermogenesis). Chromium Insulin plays a major role in fat storage. Chromium is a trace mineral that potentiates the effects of insulin, causing less insulin to be needed. Blood sugar levels are thus stabilized, and less fat is stored. Perhaps 90% of all Americans are deficient in chromium. It helps decrease LDL, cholesterol and triglycerides, while raising the levels of desirable HDL. Vanadyl Sulfate Vanadyl sulfate mimics many of the activities of insulin. It is biologically active even in the absence of insulin. It possesses anti-catabolic properties: reducing the breakdown of muscle protein for energy. It also prevents the storage of excess carbohydrates as fat. Manganese Manganese is another mineral that plays an important role in carbohydrate metabolism. It is a cofactor with many of the enzymes that affect sugar metabolism. ************************************ EnerEFA Price with discount: 29.65 for 1 month supply EnerEFA contains a well-balanced combination of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids in convenient capsule form. These nutrients can not be produced by the body and must be included in our diet. These powerful nutrients assist your body in maintaining a healthy immune system, proper hormonal balance and a strong heart. They are also important for healthy joint function, prostate health and youthful moisturized skin. EnerEFA ingredients include: Flax Seed Oil - is nature's richest source of omega-3 fatty acids and is the vegetable alternative to fish oil. Clinical research has shown the importance of omega-3 fatty acids for maintaining blood pressure, regulating triglyceride and cholesterol levels and keeping arteries clean and platelets from clotting. They also are important for healthy immune function and joint function. Evening Primrose Oil - contains a rare nutrient, Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is needed for the body to make a family of hormone-like compounds called prostaglandins. These compounds especially affect the heart, skin and immune system. Studies show it has beneficial properties for PMS symptoms including headaches, depression, bloating and breast tenderness. It reduces menstrual cramps and uterine contractions. ************************************ EnerEssence I (women) - provides you with optimum nutrition. It assists your body in maintaining normal menstrual cycles and promotes a healthy reproductive system. It sets the stage for the future health of your immune, skeletal and cardiovascular systems.
  7. 7. Price with discount: 25.03 for 1 month supply PMS Relief Formula (women) - assists your body in reducing PMS symptoms such as anxiety, depression, fluid retention, bloating, breast tenderness and food cravings. For best results, use as part of the Advanced Nutrition for Women System. Price with discount: 25.03 for 1 month supply EnerEssence II (post-menopausal women) - meets the increased nutritional needs caused by physical stress and changes during menopause. It supports hormonal balance and helps to make your transition a smooth one. It strengthens your immune, skeletal and cardiovascular systems. Price with discount: 32.73 for 1 month supply Menopause Support Formula (women) - assists your body in reducing symptoms related to menopause, such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, mood swings and heart palpitations. For best results, use with EnerEssence II. Price with discount: 25.03 for 1 month supply ************************************ ProstÉlan Price with discount: 38.11 for 1 month supply This synergestic formula includes a powerful flower pollen extract, clinically proven in Europe and Japan to promote prostate health. It gives quicker and more comprehensive results than the usual nutritional choices such as saw palmetto or pygeum. ProstÉlan is rich in important nutrients for men and women! ProstÉlan contains a synergistic blend of prostate support nutrients including a special flower pollen extract extensively used and studied in Europe and Japan. It provides nutritional support helpful in relaxing smooth muscle to allow complete voiding during urination, reducing inflammation, directing zinc to the prostate, and promoting the clearance of DHT from the body. Individuals often see results in half the time of the usual nutritional supplements such as saw palmetto or pygeum. In addition to the major ingredient of rye pollen extract, ProstÉlan contains the following: Plant phytosterols Clinical studies with phytosterols have shown that these compounds reduce inflammation by inhibiting free radical activity. Phytosterols have been shown to increase urinary flow and promote overall prostate health. Lycopene Lycopene has shown remarkable promise as perhaps the world's most powerful antioxidant.
  8. 8. Studies have shown that a diet high in tomatoes and tomato products (high in lycopene) is strongly linked to a reduced risk of certain cancers, including prostate cancer. Zinc arginate This trace mineral found in plants and animals is required by every cell in the human body. A crucial element in prostate health, it also enhances white blood cell functions necessary for healthy immune function. Flower pollen extracts greatly increase the levels of zinc in prostatic tissues and fluids. Copper citrate ProstÉlan is a balanced formula that maintains the optimum ratio of zinc and copper.
