Essential amino acids that we get from foods (meat, eggs, beans, and nuts) have to first be digested before they’re available to muscles, tissues, and cells. For a variety of reasons, the digestive process is not perfect. Aging, stress (both physical and emotional), gastrointestinal imbalances, unhealthy dietary choices, and the use of medications all get in the way of the body’s ability to enzymatically metabolize and process foods and render their essential amino acids bioavailable. Since Perfect Amino provides a (vegetable-based) trove of all eight essential amino acids in their pure, elemental form, no digestion is required.
Even if your digestive systems were perfect, it would take several hours for your body to be able to utilize the amino acids it has processed and released into the bloodstream. When taken on its own, PerfectAmino is absorbed into the bloodstream within 23 minutes for nearly instant strength and recovery.
PerfectAmino is a comprehensive formula featuring a unique combination of all 8 essential amino acids (50% of which are branched chain amino acids, or BCAAs). This formula is so complete that it could serve as your sole source of protein, although we recommend it as a super-supplement to a healthy diet. If you consumed only BCAAs or vegetable-based proteins (which don’t have optimal levels of ALL the essential amino acids your cells and systems require), your health—and performance—would be impacted.
Because PerfectAmino is completely absorbed and 99% utilized for anabolic (growth and repair) purposes, there is no nitrogen waste (a by-product of protein metabolism) to tax the kidneys. This makes PerfectAmino the ideal source of pure, elemental protein for people who seek diabetes-health or kidney-support nutrition. Animal, dairy or vegetable proteins are, on the other hand, at best 30% utilized by the body for its anabolic needs.
Humans evolved hunting and eating whole animals as food. In modern times, however, we primarily eat animal flesh, which is high in the inflammatory amino acid, methionine, and low in the anti-inflammatory amino acids, glycine and proline (found in tendons, ligaments, and organs). Since PerfectAmino is so low in methionine, its regular use will reduce inflammation by displacing methionine.
Age and training stress contribute to lean muscle loss. Since PerfectAmino is properly-balanced and 99% utilized by the body, almost everyone can maintain high levels of the essential amino acids responsible for muscular growth and recovery, regardless of their age or how much they train.
Each 10 gram serving of PerfectAmino (2 scoops or 10 tablets) is equivalent to approximately 35 grams of a dietary protein yet only contains a few calories. Therefore, by replacing 35 grams of protein with PerfectAmino, you can reduce 140 calories from your daily diet (35 grams of protein x 4 calories/per gram). And since PerfectAmino enhances muscle mass, this reduction in calories will not lead to reduced muscle mass or a slower metabolism.
PerfectAmino offers your hard-working body nutrients that reduce false hunger signals. Additionally, since the product is not digested or metabolized, for enhanced benefits it can be taken just prior to high-intensity interval training, intermittent fasting or cold therapy.
Mix one or two scoops in 6-8 ounces of water and you’re ready to go! No hassles! If you wish, you can get creative on a hot (or intense) day and blend the powder with some ice and frozen berries!
Athletes take advantage of it for muscular strength and recovery. Healthcare practitioners are recommending it to their patients to use before and after procedures (since it cuts down on recovery time). People who seek kidney-health support use it as a source of waste-free protein. Others utilize it to lose fat weight and reduce inflammation.
If you search for “energy supplement” on amazon, you get over 4,000 results.
How can any reasonable human sift through all that and find the ones that work? Or which ones are bogus?
I did a deep dive into the truth about “increasing your energy” in another article. It gives you a framework for understanding how real energy supplements work and why.
But here I want to do something different.
I want to get practical and tactical with 10 proven ways to boost energy production in your cellular energy factories –– your mitochondria.
We’ll start with the lifestyle and dietary ways to boost your mitochondria and then look at a few powerful supplements.
Let’s start with the cheapest...
Your average health food store has an entire section devoted to “energy.”
The products on the shelf, with their fancy logos and specially designed packaging, make grandiose claims about what they will do for your “energy levels.”
But the truth?
Most of them are stimulants in disguise, artificially jacking you up to give you the sensation of energy.
But in the end, they do more harm than good. They increase cortisol, cause dehydration, and deplete you.
Because almost none of them do anything on the biological level that supports your real energy system: your mitochondria and metabolism.
That’s why in this article I want to show you what to look for with any new supplement.... and why.
