According to the CDC, only 27% of Americans consume more than 3 servings of vegetables per day. 3 servings are the recommended minimum required for reasonable health. It’s a pretty alarming commentary on the state of the average American diet.
We are eating way too much fat, way too much sugar, and way too many carbs.
It becomes even more alarming when you look at the actual nutritional value of vegetables themselves. Intensive, chemically-based industrial farming has been slowly depleting our soils of essential minerals for decades, each crop less nutritious than the one that came before.
According to this article in Scientific American, in the last 40 years, the nutritional content of iron alone has fallen over 37%. One study from the University of Colorado estimates that overall nutritional value has dropped 40-60% in the last 100 years.
Minerals are critical for enzymes, hormone production, and thousands of other biological processes that keep us healthy.
But it’s not just that we need the minerals from the plants.
The plants themselves need the minerals to make vitamins and other important phytonutrients. And these phytonutrients are not something we can easily create in a lab and packaged into a pill.
Things like L-theonine in green tea or theobromine from cacao.
Our only source is healthy plants.
So can we do to fortify ourselves against this loss in nutritional value?
Many people have nutritional deficiencies they don’t even know about. Sometimes it’s magnesium. Sometimes it’s an amino acid like tryptophan.
So, instead of addressing each problem individually with a dozen different supplements, we designed a fully loaded meal replacement to help you address your complete health: PerfectAmino PowerMeal
It is loaded with organic superfoods, bioavailable vitamins and minerals, trace minerals from pink Himalayan salt, spirulina, green tea, and even saw palmetto berry extract for hormonal balance.
This is added to a powerful base of our PerfectAmino formula, MCT Oil, and an incredible nutritional innovation in energy called Carb10.
Our mission is to provide you with information and tools to optimize your health and performance and we believe this may be the most potent one we’ve ever created.

In the nearly 8 years that my wife and I have lived in Colorado Springs, never have we seen the amount of road construction currently taking place. Whether it’s a main road or side street, there’s no part of town missing out on the “fun”. And it’s not just re-paving or patching potholes. Whole lanes are being ripped up with miles of digging in order to replace underground pipes of all varieties.
At first, I thought all the “weed” sales (pot is legal in Colorado) might be producing the influx of tax funds for all this construction. But a running buddy of mine made me aware of a bill that had passed in the last couple years which freed up an enormous amount of funds for these projects.
Turns out the city has a certain amount of time to spend the money. Based on the number of orange cones and “ROAD WORK AHEAD” signs, it looks as though no penny is being spared.
Millions of people are about to be disappointed –– they don’t even realize it.
Maybe you’re one of them.
Right now, around the world, people are setting new ambitious health goals and resolutions.
And yet, according to Inc Magazine, approximately 80% of New Year's resolutions fail. Most of them buried in an unmarked early grave by February.
Why is that?
How is it that despite all our best intentions and genuine desire to live healthier and be fitter, the most we can hope for is a depressing 20% success rate?
So to help you kickstart your New Year with a healthy lifestyle we are going to breakdown why most goals and resolutions fail and what to do instead.
