Our understanding of nutrition, energy, and performance biology is constantly evolving. The cutting edge is a moving target shrouded in scientific jargon, hidden in obscure journals and keeping up with it is a perpetual challenge.
At BodyHealth, we take the guesswork out of nutrition so you can focus on what really matters: Performance. Improving. Pushing yourself to your limits. Reaching for the next level of Mastery.
For us, our next level is the forefront of performance nutrition, the most advanced and complete nutrition formula we’ve made to date: PerfectAmino Power Meal.
Peak performance requires balance. You need energy available quickly and efficiently, but also sustained in the long term. It’s not performance enhancing if you crash before the finish line.
You need vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to help drive all the essential biological processes for clear thinking, hormonal balance, and proper waste elimination.
And let’s not forget the digestive system – if your digestion isn’t solid, your entire game can be thrown off. The 100 trillion or so bacteria that comprise your gut’s microbiome are crucial for energy production, immune regulation, and even brain function. So what makes them happy? Prebiotics and fiber from whole foods.
But if you look at the most performance supplements and meal replacements, you’ll at best get 1 or 2 of these needs covered. And most of them based on outdated research. This leaves you needing to buy 4 or 5 different pricey supplements of questionable quality just to cover your bases.
Let’s break it down for what you need for a month’s supply of Meal Replacement:
This all adds up to $90 – 170 depending on the quality of what you buy. And you have to keep track of all the different products you’re using.
This is neither efficient nor effective. To perform at the top of your game, you need something better.
PerfectAmino PowerMeal is a true meal replacement supplement, giving you all the high-quality nutrition and energy you need in one easy-to-drink, delicious chocolate shake. With just one serving of PerfectAmino Power Meal you get:
The core of PerfectAmino Power Meal is built upon our revolutionary protein formula PerfectAmino. This is a scientifically designed blend of the 8 essential amino acids the body needs to build and maintain its muscular, skeletal, enzymatic, and hormonal systems. What makes it so potent is that there is a specific ratio of these amino acids that create maximum use. Anything outside of this ratio goes to waste.
Whey protein, in comparison, is only 18% utilized by the body to actually build or repair proteins. The rest is catabolized and becomes toxic nitrogen waste. The ratio of amino acids in whey protein is actually not all that great for building muscle, despite all the marketing dollars poured into these so-called “muscle building” powders.
Think of it like baking a cake that requires 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 egg. If you have 50 cups of flour, 10 cups of sugar, but only 1 egg, you can still only make 1 cake. The rest goes to waste.
This is the genius of Perfect Amino. This blend is 99% utilized by your body to build muscle, restore enzymes, and regenerate tissue. And each serving of PowerMeal is loaded with 7.5g of PerfectAmino. In terms of actual used-amino acids, this is the equivalent of 41.6g of whey protein.
The last 20 years produced a massive amount of information on the negative impact of carbohydrates on your health. Carbs spike your insulin, drive inflammation, and promote fat accumulation.
And yet, they still provide one of the most readily available forms of energy for the intense physical demands of athletes, bodybuilders, and weekend warriors. Maltodextrin, a synthetic complex carbohydrate derived from GMO corn, has become a staple addition to many protein shakes formulas.
With a glycemic index is over twice that of white sugar, it enters the bloodstream very rapidly and quickly replenishes muscle energy stores. An athlete rides the sugar high and feels recovered.
But then there’s the crash. The insulin spike induced by maltodextrin comes the same sugar crash that occurs with a plate of cookies. And the same inflammatory and diabetic risks, the same brain fog, the same rollercoaster of energy levels.
Maltodextrin and other carbohydrate additions to these protein shakes are not a long-term strategy for health and performance.
Carb10 is the latest development in nutrition technology, offering the immediacy of carbohydrate energy without spiking blood sugar. Derived from a special form of carbohydrate found in peas, it has a unique structure that bypasses all the negative side-effects of most other carbohydrates.
No insulin spike. No crash. No bloating. No downside.
Welcome to the future of performance nutrition.
If you haven’t heard of Medium Chain Triglycerides, or MCTs, prepare to have your mind blown. Triglycerides are a form of fat storage and they can come in 3 basic sizes: short-chain, medium-chain, and long-chain. These different lengths are processed differently by your body. Long-chain triglycerides are the most difficult and problematic for your body. These are the kinds of fats used to make fried chicken and donuts.
Medium-chain triglycerides, however, are incredible.They are just the right length for cellular membranes, for the myelin sheathing of neurons, anti-inflammatory molecules, and, most relevant here, for making ketones. Ketones are the preferred brain food and make energy for your whole body that can last for hours.
With 5g of MCTs per serving, PowerMeal will make you feel fuller for longer with sustainable energy for the long haul.
No meal would be complete without a full complement of vitamins and minerals. These are the little keys that open the doors and grease the wheels of optimal performance. If your enzymes don’t function due to a mineral deficiency, no amount of amino acids or MCTs will get you to that next level.
We cover all your health bases with essential B vitamins, key minerals like zinc, magnesium, and selenium, and antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E, as well as neuromuscular-enhancing vitamin D3.
The list of beneficial compounds contained within certain nutrient-dense plants called superfoods could literally fill pages of text. Polyphenols, phytonutrients, prebiotics, and trace minerals are all crucial for your health in small doses.
Historically, we got these naturally from our diet, but with the current state of our contaminated food system and rapidly degrading soil, we get less and less of these each year. It’s estimated that an orange harvested today has only 20% of the nutritional value as an orange from 20 years ago.
To round out the full-spectrum nutritional value of PerfectAmino Power Meal, we added a potent whole-food blend of some of the most beneficial beans, berries, fruits, plants, and greens the earth provides us, giving your body that last little push toward peak performance.
With PerfectAmino, MCTs, Carb10, vitamins, minerals, and superfoods, this unique, scientifically designed formula gives you the energy you need now and sustains you longer than any other nameless generic protein powder.
This isn’t just for athletes looking for their next PR.
Power Meal is for those want to be at their best.
Whether that’s in the office, in front of your audience, or managing the myriad pressures of modern life, you’re only as good as your fuel.
And if you want to look, feel, and perform at your best, you have to give yourself the best nutrition. And that’s why we created Perfect Amino Power Meal.
From antioxidants to high octane biofuel to micronutrients, it has everything you need to help push your body and brain to your next level – nothing else even comes close.
PerfectAmino Power Meal is the next level of peak performance nutrition.
