When it comes to triathlon or in fact any endurance event, the task requires months of preparation. I think it goes without mention that as life happens; we often change plans that have already been adapted due to injury or illness. In short, we can never truly plan for every aspect of a race lasting over 4 hours. For me, it’s a normal occasion. I routinely put my body and mind through over 30 hours of weekly training volume chasing greatness in the sport of triathlon.
I raced IRONMAN Austria on July 2 and within 3 weeks will be competing in another Challenge Family triathlon, located in Iceland. Being separated from home, I can’t really plan for the staple comforts and recovery protocols that I usually love. For that reason, I need to bring a few items that really pack a punch when taking part in international competition. For me, BodyHealth’s PerfectAmino and Healthy Sleep Ultra are always near my bed.
Moving 6 hours ahead in a time zone can really negatively impact restful sleep, especially on long flights. I’ve found that with the help of Healthy Sleep Ultra, I’ve been able to adapt to a new time zone within a few days, never feeling like a zombie. Why? It’s because unlike other sleep aids, I never wake up feeling lousy. I awake feeling charged up and ready to go.
Healthy Sleep Ultra helps me stay asleep once I finally nod off. Meaning I don’t wake up in the middle of the night through sleep cycles. Any athlete can tell you how sound sleep can greatly improve performance and recovery, so getting on a schedule quickly is extremely important.
I take 2 pills about 60 min before I’m ready to sleep. I start a book and before I know it, it’s time for breakfast and coffee. I really only need to take this great supplement a few times a month during heavy bouts of training when the body is a bit restless. Thus far, it’s the most reliable sleep-aid I’ve found that actually works well and doesn’t create a dependency.
I took a little spill during my IRONMAN and suffered some bruising with a few minor cuts. I started taking PerfectAmino, 10 pills every 9-12 hours after the race and by the second day, when walking was painful, I climbed a mountain - 6,000ft elevation on the road bike. Needless to say, my legs were able to perform very well but most importantly; my energy was back very quickly.
I think racing two big events in short succession means you must really give the body a boost. It’s actually mandatory for me. Last year I raced IRONMAN Austria and IRONMAN Zurich within 3 weeks of each other, with the same protocols with great success.
I guess you could say that without having some reliable, quality and fully legal supplements on my side, my training and racing would suffer and most likely hit all time lows.
I recommend you give these products a try. I hope they work for you as well as they work for me!
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.
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.
