How Do I Take PerfectAmino?

BodyHealth PerfectAmino and PerfectAminoXP tablets and powder the 8 essential amino acids for maximum 99% utilization by the body for building body protein

Many of you have asked us about the best way to take PerfectAmino® so you can achieve maximal benefits. We'd like to simplify the process and clear up any confusion so you can get optimal utilization from our essential amino acid supplement.

Understanding Amino Acids

Amino acids are the building blocks that make up protein, and protein is essential for life. Without it, your body cannot perform normal functions like making muscle, repairing tissue or producing hormones. Protein is a crucial nutrient, without, no body functions can occur. The human body only produces 14 of the 22 amino acids—the remaining eight essential amino acids must come from an external source. Unlike PerfectAmino, other amino acid products do not contain all 8 essential amino acids, or include them in the wrong balance.*

Understanding PerfectAmino

PerfectAmino gives you the exact balance of amino acids required by your body, and because of PerfectAmino's unique design, up to 99% of it is "body available." In other words, the highest possible percentage of the nutritional benefits in the product is available to your body for use in growth, building, repairing and healing. And because almost all of the amino acids are burned or utilized, there is virtually no "acidic waste" or residue left in the body, unlike so many other amino acid products.*

When Should I Take PerfectAmino?

To receive max benefits from PerfectAmino, it should be taken every day, not just on days when you are physically active or sick. Daily consumption guarantees that your body has the nutrients it needs to stay strong and healthy. You can take PerfectAmino with fruits, vegetables or grains. If you’ve already just eaten other fats or proteins, try to give the body enough time to digest before taking a serving of PerfectAmino, usually 1-2 hours will be enough. After taking PerfectAmino, it's best to wait at least 23 minutes before eating proteins or fats to get maximum utilization and absorption.*

What is an Optimal Dose?

According to Dr. David Minkoff, MD, founder of BodyHealth.com, the normal dose for men is between 5-10 tablets (or 1-2 scoops of XP powder) every day. For women, the average dose is between 5-8 tablets (or 1-2 scoops of XP powder) daily.

If you're a professional athlete or are consistently involved in strenuous exercise, you will benefit from increasing your daily intake. For example, take 2-3 standard doses on these days. And if you have any chronic diseases or health conditions, it is recommended that you take 2-3 times your normal daily amount to supply your body with the raw materials needed to build and repair. Do keep in mind that regardless of your health needs, it is not recommended that you take more than 30 tablets ( or 6 scoops of XP powder) in one day.

PerfectAmino does not act as a meal replacement, but it's an excellent addition to any weight-loss program because it helps build muscle mass, and muscle burns more calories as metabolism increases. Each tablet contains less than one calorie.

The Link Between Depression, Antibiotics, and the Life Saving Benefits of Good Gut Flora
The Link Between Depression, Antibiotics, and the Life Saving Benefits of Good Gut Flora

Physicians over thousands of years have observed a link between a patient’s mental state and how swiftly they recover. It is a long-standing axiom that people who are determined to get better and maintain a healthy frame of mind recover more quickly, with better results.

But what if we told you that it’s a two-way street? That specific health conditions can cause conditions like depression and anxiety?

In 1931, decades before the first antidepressant and antianxiety medications had been developed, a physician named Yaskin discovered that clinical depression is the earliest manifestation of pancreatic cancer. Further research demonstrated that patients who suffered from gastrointestinal malignancies carried the greatest risk of suicide – which was one of the first science-based flags indicating that the digestive system can have an impact on mental health.

The simplest way to reduce toxins in your body is to avoid them. Despite today’s crazy world that has toxins everywhere, there are steps you can take that will reduce your toxin intake. This gives your body a chance to get rid of the “backlog” and catch up.

  1. Eat ORGANIC. One of the most important ways to reduce toxicity is to eat foods that are certified organic. Not only do these foods contain higher nutrient densities to supply your body with what it needs, but they are free from the pesticides and chemicals present in most food.
  2. Avoid exercising and training in a densely populated city (when possible). As an athlete, your respiratory system is much more active – and training in a city with high levels of pollution means you are inhaling toxins just by breathing.
  3. Avoid any household products that have artificial fragrances. Artificial fragrances are toxic and should be avoided.
  4. Stay away from pesticides.
  5. Avoid highly-processed foods, as these are generally chock full of toxic chemicals.
  6. Stay away from products that contain BPA, which means avoiding plastic bottles, cardboard, and cans as much as possible.
  7. Avoid the use of non-stick cookware, as the coating contains harmful chemical compounds that can enter your food and be consumed.

Elderberry, also known as Sambucus nigra, has been used for centuries as a natural herbal remedy for those who fall ill.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, referred to elderberry as “nature’s medicine chest,” and it has been noted as early as the 5th century BC as a medicinal tonic – forever cementing it as a staple in human nutrition.

But, it wasn’t until recently that we understood WHY it is so helpful to the body. And with this understanding came advanced methods of harnessing the incredible power of this medicinal plant.
