Remember FundAminos in the Offseason

It happens every fall. The racing season is over and people who relied heavily on the FundAminos essential amio acid formula to see them through the ups, the downs (and everything in between) stop using it until spring.

While these seems like a logical, cost-cutting decision, it's a "lose, lose." You lose the foundational strength, energy and recovery benefits that are gained from having consistently high levels of essential amino acids fueling each and every one of your hard-working cells. And you lose all the additional, health-related benefits such as 
reduced levels of inflammation, deeper sleep, improved gastrointestinal health--and more...

The Top Ten Reasons Why You Should Be Using FundAminos Every Day

1. FundAminos is almost 100% utilized for strength, energy, and recovery.

The essential amino acids derived from foods (animal proteins, beans, and nuts) must be digested before they can be used by the muscles, tissues, and cells. Unfortunately, the digestive process is imperfect Aging, stress (both physical and emotional), gastrointestinal imbalances, poor dietary choices, and the use of most common medications all interfere with the body’s ability to enzymatically breakdown foods and make their essential amino acids bio-available. Because FundAminos provides a (vegetable-based) source of all eight essential amino acids in their pure, elemental form, no digestion is required.

2. FundAminos is rapidly absorbed. ­­­­­­

Even if your digestive process was perfect, it would take several
hours for your body to gain access to the amino acids it has created and released into the blood stream. When taken away from other foods, FundAminos is absorbed into the blood stream within 20 to 30 minutes for almost-immediate strength and recovery support.

3. FundAminos is perfectly balanced.

FundAminos is a comprehensive formula containing a unique combination of all 8 essential amino acids (50% of which are branched chain amino acids). This formula is so complete, it could serve as your sole source of protein. If you consumed only branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s) or vegetable-based proteins (both of which lack optimal levels of ALL the essential amino acids your cells and systems need), your health and performance would suffer....

My Two-Pronged Approach for Performance and Recovery

I have a confession:

I haven’t been very active during the past six months. I’ve been so wrapped up in work projects that most of my days have been spent either sitting or standing in front of my computer. While I do get up or change position frequently—and take my little dog for a daily, two-mile walk, I have basically been sedentary for the first time in my life.

Even though I haven’t been my active self, I’ve continued to follow our Core 4 performance protocols, which are focused on optimizing the body’s nitric oxide and essential amino acid levels. And I’ve been supporting my telomere health with our new telomerase-activating formula, “Live Long.”

When some old friends came for a visit last weekend, they wanted to do a more demanding hike in the Santa Barbara hills. I was up for the challenge, but somewhat unsure about how I’d perform and recover.

If you’ve been to Santa Barbara, you know that getting off the beaten paths (Cabrillo Street and the Beachway along the water front) requires going straight up hill. Since we were short on time, we chose the Buena Vista Trail, which climbs almost 900 feet in a mile.  I have done this a hike a number of times in the past when I was more fit, and still felt a little out of breath on certain sections.  I was a little concerned I wouldn’t make it all the way to the top. (I am the one on the far left)...

But I smoked it!

While I didn’t have quite the same bounce in my step, the climb was surprisingly easy. And I was equally surprised that I had absolutely no soreness later that night or the next day.

These are the “take home” points: ...

The Perfect Strength and Recovery Strategy

You might be surprised to learn that more protein isn't the ultimate solution.

As an athlete, you know that protein is important—not only for energy, but for physical growth and repair. It seems logical to think that more is better. But this simply isn’t the case.

Athletes don’t need more protein, they need more amino acids

The body requires access to a total of 22 different amino acids, which

play a role in its ability to produce energy and maintain optimum physical function.  Eight of the 22 amino acids are defined as ‘essential’ because they are not manufactured by the body; they must be derived from dietary proteins and/or an essential amino acid supplement....

FundAminos Was My Secret Weapon

I recently received the following story from a long-time Core 4 client and natural bodybuilder who was inspired to share his positive results with others. At the age of 55, his strategic use of training, dietary, and nutritional supplement choices (including FundAminos) has helped him become leaner--and stronger--than men less than half his age! I was impressed by his personal accomplishments and pleased that Core 4 could offer support and assistance. I hope you enjoy his story:

*"I followed my regular diet, but the one thing that was very different was my use of FundAminos instead of protein powders. There are at least four different mechanisms involved in why this made such a huge difference: nitrogen-sparing, calorie reduction, strength support, and elimination of the normal endocrine performance hit.";

As my 55th birthday approached, so did the photo shoot I had scheduled to commemorate this milestone event. I had maintained my body fat at 5% to 6% from the first of the year, knowing that the big day would be in September. To drop additional body fat from this level is one of those 'last mile' propositions that is hugely challenging. The typical approach is to massively cut calories in the month or so before a competition or photo shoot.;....
