We all lead busy lives these days.
In the time-pressured priority shuffle, nutrition often gets lost.
Enter the meal replacement industry for a quick and easy solution. In just a few minutes you get plenty of protein, broad-spectrum nutrition, and you’re satisfied for a few hours. One drink and you’re free to go about your day without worrying about nutrition or energy.
Except that it’s not so easy for all of us.
For many people, food is a minefield, littered with danger and health consequences. And this unregulated area of meal replacements is one of the most challenging to navigate.
And it’s all because of one little ingredient manufacturers sneak into so-called “health” products.
Of course, we are talking about sugar.
Sugar is so omnipresent in our food supply it’s practically invisible, save those carefully monitoring their glucose levels. Just try a ketogenic diet and you will quickly become aware of how sugar dominates our taste buds.
Our culture is addicted to sugar – it acts on the same neural centers that drive addiction to more dangerous substances like opioids. Sugar is in virtually every single processed food: cereal, yogurt, salad dressing, processed meat, bread, and yes, meal replacements and protein shakes.
The average protein powder on the market contains a whopping 13 grams of sugar per serving. That is the equivalent of 3 spoonful’s in every single serving!
Beyond dietary choices, however, the situation is even more challenging for people with diabetes. For them, it’s not a matter of preference. Monitoring their sugar levels is a necessity.
Of course, they still have the same daily pressures as the rest of us. What options, then, do diabetics have for a fast, protein-packed meal on that won’t jack up their glucose levels?
This was the same search successful multimedia artist Bodhi Elfman was on for years.
Bodhi is a type 1 diabetic. This form of diabetes develops in childhood, so he’s no stranger to watching his sugar intake.
Throughout his career, he tried many different diets, protocols, and products that might fit his both fast-paced, creative lifestyle, as well as his dietary requirements.
The results were hit and miss, but the few protein powders that worked for him tasted like aspartame-flavored chalk.
And then he came across PerfectAmino Power Meal.
It has no sugar and the equivalent of 47g of whey protein per serving! That fact alone got him curious.
Then he saw it was packed with nutrition and only had half the calories of his regular breakfast. It was worth a test.
You can hear his own words here:
Not only did it keep him full and give him the energy he needed for hours, but it tasted good. No strange chalky aftertaste. No artificial chemical sweeteners.
And most important, no sugar!
The biggest surprise, however, came later as he monitored his blood sugar levels over the next hour:
Power Meal had zero effect on blood glucose levels. And without solid food in his stomach, his blood sugar slowly dropped, almost as if he were fasting. He was so surprised he wrote a letter to Dr. Minkoff.
Try a whey protein powder and not only will your insulin spike but so will your inflammatory markers and gut permeability. Add to that the fact that whey protein is only 18% utilized by your body – so for every 20g of whey, a meager 3g goes to build and repair your body.
Not so great for optimal health.
How can something taste good, give you protein, even taste sweet, and still have no net effect on glucose? How is this even possible?
The secret of Power Meal comes down to 3 primary ingredients.
Secret #1 is our proprietary formula of amino acids, PerfectAmino. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. When you take our unique formula of 8 essential amino acids, they are already in their most basic form. There is no digestion required, like with whey or other protein powders. This means the protein is absorbed immediately into your system. Studies show that the amino acids in Perfect Amino hit your bloodstream in less than 20 minutes after you take them.
This proprietary formula maximizes amino acid utilization, so every last drop (minus 1%) gets used to make actual protein – i.e., muscle. Not only is this more efficient use of your money, but it also saves you from the kidney issues that can crop up in people who eat high protein diets like the Atkins diet.
Secret #2 is a rare carbohydrate called Carb10. You need carbs for energy. A 100% carb-free diet creates long-term problems, so you need to get them from somewhere to keep your energy levels high. Carb10 is isolated from peas and has a unique molecular structure so that it does not affect your blood glucose levels. It is processed directly in your tissues instead of the liver.
No blood sugar spike. No insulin-induced crash. Just pure energy available immediately.
And best of all? Carb10 doesn’t cause bloating like many other carbs.
Secret #3 lies hidden inside a rare African fruit, called the Katemfe fruit.
This fruit comes from deep in the West African rainforests and contains a rare protein called Thaumatin. It has been used by West Africans for millennia to sweeten corn breads and sour fruits, as well as a welcome additive to their-often bitter palm wine.
Because it is a protein and not an actual carbohydrate, it enhances the flavor without increasing blood sugar or insulin levels. It’s how we get such a rich, creamy, full-bodied flavor without any chemicals or strange “fake sweetener aftertaste.”
Katemfe creates the perfect balance between something that tastes great but doesn’t disrupt your blood sugar levels.
Power Meal is not just an amino acid-based “protein powder.” As the name suggests, it is a full meal. Just like a proper meal, it has a broad spectrum of nutrition, including:
Let’s not forget everyone’s favorite… Raw Cacao.
If you carefully monitor your blood sugar levels, whether you are on a ketogenic diet, diabetic, or want to avoid sugar for health reasons, you need simple nutritional solutions that fit your dietary requirements – without sacrificing taste, nutrition, or quality.
With PerfectAmino Power Meal you can have it all in one convenient scoop – efficient protein utilization, vitamins, minerals, organic superfood extracts, PLUS a deliciously creamy chocolatey taste.
Keep your blood sugar low, your energy high, and your health optimal.

The importance of having a well-functioning and healthy immune system has become increasingly obvious in recent times.
Sadly, everyone seems to have a different answer as to how you should go about strengthening your immune system. When you go to your local health and wellness shop, you might see twenty or thirty products that tout their “immune boosting” powers. An Amazon search reveals thousands of results.
Well, we’re here to tell you about an effective and ancient remedy that has been in use for over two thousand years: the red reishi mushroom.
We’ve all heard about all the negative effects of stress and the modern lifestyle.
We’re all rushing around, overworked, in a constant state of fight-or-flight and it has disastrous effects on our health.
But what if “stress” wasn’t the real problem?
What if our bodies knew exactly how to cope with the intensity of modern life… if we just gave the body what it needed to thrive?
And the key may be one little mineral.
I hope this finds you healthy and able to still get outside (or inside) for a daily run during this trying time of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many of us are grieving several losses including race cancellations. Though it's a bummer, I want you to know that your hard-earned training is far from wasted.
Those miles are in your legs and all kinds of wonderful benefits have occurred including the addition of mitochondria, adding new capillary beds for increased blood flow, and strengthening the heart muscle for future training.
As athletes, it's important for us to be proactive in maintaining a strong immune system. We're not only doing this for our own prevention but also our loved ones that we spend time with.
