wHAT IS PROTEIN?

AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR INJURY PREVENTION AND REHAB

Pickleball is not the main "hobby" of MILLIONS of new "athletes." Most hobbies do not require 10-20 hours of physical activity on a concrete surface. It is not quite a hobby. Whether you are 20 years old, or 90 years old; no matter what, minor and major injuries are INEVITABLE - from a tight calf, back pain or a sore knee to tennis elbow, plantar faciitis or frozen shoulder. For most of us, these injuries are going to be the MOST frustrating part of our new physical activity, not hobby.

So, we reached out to top doctors and nutritionists in the medical community to find out what is going on in our body -- why this is happening, and what we can do to help prevent or rehab these inevitable injuries through basic nutrition. What we found is a MUST KNOW FOR EVERYONE.

Most of us, as well as top body builders, Ironmen, and professional athletes all talk about protein shakes and eating tons of protein for building and maintaining muscle. But, why? And what is PROTEIN exactly?

DID YOU KNOW THAT YOUR BODY NEEDS AS MUCH AS 3 TIMES THE NRMAL PROTEIN AMOUNTS WHEN HEALING FROM AN INJURY?

AMAZING, CAPTIVATING TITLE

INCREDIBLE SUB HEADING THAT GRABS ATTENTION

DO YOU TAKE LONGER TO HEAL FROM INJURIES?

It’s not just muscles that are made from protein. Your tendons, ligaments and joints are made from protein, too. So, when your body doesn’t get enough protein, it takes longer for those muscles, tendons and joints to heal and recover.

DO YOU OFTEN FEEL THE EFFECTS OF OVERTRAINING?

To maintain or improve your endurance, your body needs strong muscles. And strong muscles are made of – you guessed it – protein.


ARE YOU 50 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER?

The average person starts losing muscle in their 30s. This muscle loss then accelerates in your 50s. Indeed, by the age of 50, the average person has already lost 30% of their muscle mass!

THE POWER OF PROTEIN

AMINO ACIDS are the catalyst for nearly every physiological function including protein synthesis, enzyme production, hormone regulation, cognitive performance, neurotransmitter balance, and metabolism. They’re also the foundation of protein and therefore muscle mass, which makes them a necessity for optimizing athletic performance.

There are 20 amino acids in total, nine of which are classified as essential. The body cannot synthesize the essential amino acids by itself; they must be attained through diet from protein-rich foods like meat, fish, eggs, dairy, legumes, and of course, amino acid supplements.

The essential amino acids (EAAs) make up over 50% of every protein in the body. A deficiency in any one of them has detrimental effects on muscle preservation, athletic training, and recovery, which is why EAAs are the ideal supplement to fuel performance.

AMINO ACIDS ARE THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF PROTEIN -
THE #1 SUPPLEMENT TO HELP PREVENT AND REPAIR INJURIES.

HOW IT ALL WORKS

Our human body is made up of about 50,000 unique proteins. Those proteins range from things like our skin, hair, muscles to digestive enzymes, the connective tissues in our joints and even the neuro transmitters in our brain. They all work together to coordinate some 120 trillion cellular reactions that go on inside our body every day.

These proteins all have one thing in common: they are all built from Amino Acids. Amino Acids are literally the building blocks of human life as we know it. There are 22 Amino Acids in total, 14 of which exist in your body naturally and the other 8 must be gained from nutrition. These 8 are called, “Essential Amino Acids (EAAs).”

In order for your body to build the proteins it needs, all 22 of these building blocks must be available for the process to begin. If those “blocks” aren’t available when it’s time to build, the protein simply doesn’t get built.

It is estimated that the average American, on a traditional Western diet, misses out on 10,000 protein builds a day. That tells us that roughly 25% of all the proteins our bodies need, are not getting built which can lead to protein deficiencies. These protein deficiency shows up in different ways for everyone based on things like our diet, quality of the foods we eat

  • Nagging injuries that won’t go away
  • Sore muscles after intense workouts
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Inability to lose weight
  • Hormone imbalances

TIM KUSS

FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE, WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST PROBLEMS PICKLEBALL PLAYERS FACE WHEN THEY START PLAYING A LOT?

Well, there are two areas: one is that their bodies break down if they aren't training properly. And, two - they can't maintain the level of focus on the court and have lapses in concentration. Basically, it’s a combination of muscular strength and focus so they aren’t able to tend to the ball and be able track and follow it with complete, 100% attention.

WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON AREAS FOR PHYSICAL INJURY DURING THE FIRST 3-6 MONTHS OF ACTIVELY PLAYING PICKLEBALL?

The most common injuries would be leg cramps, pulled muscles, lower back, and shoulder. And, if the person has a history of knee or foot problems, these could be additional areas of weakness. 

WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO THAT EXPERIENCE THESE PROBLEMS CURRENTLY?

Most of them take time off from pickleball because you know they haven't managed it well enough. As a competitive player myself and being 70, I learned early on that I have to maintain my physical strength through exercise, at least every other day. I've got to be doing something, and if I don't – I tend to get pulled muscles- but knock on wood, I've been able to train well enough to not get that. So, I'm playing typically 3 hours or so; it used to be more. Now, I just can't to limit chance of injury.

WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST PIECES OF ADVICE FOR PEOPLE ON HOW THEY CAN PREVENT THESE COMMON INJURIES?

Have an exercise routine that strengthens the facia, intercellular tissue around the muscles and joints, to have strength in your core. And, two -- eat a well-balanced diet with plenty of green vegetables, like kale, spinach, collards and broccoli. That way, you get the minerals that strengthen the muscles through your diet. Also, supplement with magnesium minimally, possibly a multiple mineral, but certainly magnesium.

WHY MAGNESIUM?

Because it is the mineral that relaxes the muscles the most easily. So it allows the contraction, because the muscles have to keep contracting they get tired, they get worn out, if they don't have magnesium adequate, then that muscle is going to spasm more quickly- and of course if you get a spasm in your heart, which is the biggest muscle in the body- you know, it could be over.

MORE ABOUT AMINO ACIDS

WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE MOST UNDERUTILIZED SUPPLEMENT TO KEEP YOUR BODY AS HEALTHY AS POSSIBLE?

It’s definitely AMINO ACIDS. They are small, individual proteins that most people know very little about. But, they are incredibly valuable to everyone if you know what they are, and how to utilize them. In athletics, free form amino blends can be extremely beneficial for energy, stamina, vitality and performance.

WHY AMINOS?

It’s definitely AMINO ACIDS. They are small, individual proteins that most people know very little about. But, they are incredibly valuable to everyone if you know what they are, and how to utilize them. In athletics, free form amino blends can be extremely beneficial for energy, stamina, vitality and performance.

WHY TAKE AMINO ACIDS, WILL YOU NOTICE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR BODY, AND IF SO, WHEN AND HOW?

Some people, who are more aware of their bodies, will notice an upliftment in energy and calmness typically 20- 30 minutes after taking amino acids. Other people won't notice a difference initially, because it’s too subtle. However, what's happening with the amino acids is they are gradually building the body, in a soft and quiet way behind the scenes. So, when they need to go the extra hour or two, they have got the ability to go there. They have the raw materials present in their body to allow them to make that shift. I often find that people don’t realize the positive effects until they stop taking amino acids because “I’m not sure I even noticed them. 

But once they stop taking it, they comment they wonder what’s going on. “I felt really good last month. Why don't I feel as good now?" And, then they connect the dots, “OH yeah, I was taking that amino, I didn't realize it was really helping me. Gosh, it had to be the aminos, I better reorder that." This is a common thing where people just don't notice it until they don't have it, and then are like WOW, something's different.

IF A PERSON PLAYS IN A TOURNAMENT ONCE A MONTH, CAN THEY JUST LOAD UP THE WEEK BEFORE, OR SHOULD THEY BE LOADING UP THE MONTH BEFORE?

Great question. It depends on the person and their motivation. Yes, it’s going to give them the best, widest benefits in taking them the whole month. However, with aminos, you could just take them the week prior and have them at the tournament and take them daily, while you are there to enhance your performance. No question, that's going to help greatly. But, if you want to have long term steady, stronger improvement in your overall energy and performance, then it’s wise to be taking them daily. And usually the way I do it, I take them on my workout days and skip it on my off days. That’s ok. But I make sure to work out a minimum of 3 days a week because there is often a drop-off in energy typically, particularly based upon the age of the individual. They are dragging or tired after the workout, and the aminos are going to reduce that tendency. It still may happen, but it shouldn't be as sharp, direct, or as obvious.

TRY PERFECTAMINO

WHY DO SO MANY PEOPLE TAKE PROTEIN SHAKES WHEN THEY SHOULD BE TAKING AMINO ACIDS INSTEAD?

Well, they really don't know about amino acids. Who's trained on this? I didn't really know, frankly, until 15 years into my nutrition career when I started working with an amino acid specialist. I remember thinking, “Oh my gosh. These are incredible; this is a whole new language and a whole new world of opportunity. So, I began to study it intently to find out how it worked for my own body.

TRY PERFECTAMINO

ONE LAST QUESTION: WHAT ARE MOST COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS OF AMINOS AND PROTEIN?

People think all proteins are created equal, but aminos and protein are two very different things. For example, you cannot take free-form aminos with food. If you do, you have wasted your time and money. It’s going to be broken down as food, reducing their effectiveness by up to 80%. So, that is a huge difference. You MUST take them on an empty stomach, it is a MUST... Most people don't know that.

A lot of doctors don't know that. But when taken in the proper ratio and timing, aminos help with your body’s protein production needs, slowly compounding positive health benefits and limiting problems from getting worse – and, in some cases, preventing injuries from even happening in the first place.

THE POWER OF PROTEIN

AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR INJURY PREVENTION AND REHAB

INGREDIENTS TO AVOID:

  • Too Much Sugar - Let's start off with the easiest and most obvious - excess sugar! But why? Sugar can spike insulin levels, raise blood pressure, increase fat and it has been linked to obesity, diabetes and so many other diseases. But wait, sugar tastes so good! Although that may be true for most people, the fact is, there are so many great alternatives - from monk fruit to stevia and others, that we simply don't need to risk our long-term health anymore. The damage to the body is simply not worth it. Your protein bar should not contain excess or added sugar.
  • Oats - There are many experts that will profess the health benefits of oats, whole grains and even wheat. But the hidden truth of the matter is not so much the grain, but the pesticides and glyphosate that is sprayed on the crops that should open your eyes. Most commercial crops - especially soy, corn and wheat are grown employing a method known as mono-cropping, meaning these crops are grown en masse, on huge fields and all together. Aside from having lower nutrient levels (a fact often disputed), these crops are sprayed with a product known as glyphosate which can cause a host of side effects. In addition, wheat can be high in fiber but when processed, is very high in carbohydrates, allergenic to many and loaded with preservatives and insecticides.
  • Whey Protein Powder - Most whey protein powder is an isolate. Increasingly more people are developing insensitivities or intolerances to lactose, causing them to have flatulence, bloating and even allergic reactions to whey. In addition, most whey protein is underutilized as a protein source - about 32% is usable, leaving the rest to be waste.
  • Preservatives - We've all heard of preservatives and we know that because the body has difficulty utilizing them, we can have adverse reactions when ingesting too many preservatives - especially if they are ingested on a regular basis. Many new preservatives can serve to block communications within the body and disrupt normal function. The fewer preservatives you consume, the better. 
  • Allergens - Many people have allergens, from pollen to shellfish to peanuts and beyond. Some of these allergies can cause hives, anaphylactic shock shock or even worse. 

No protein source should have too much sugar, too many preservatives or anything that is not going to help you. Sugar can stimulate you for a short period of time, but the high doesn't last and can get replaced with a feeling of lethargy and exhaustion. We need to demand more from our protein bars. After all, you are what you eat. 

GETTING MORE FROM YOUR PROTEIN

OPTIMIZING WITH PERFECTAMINO

LET'S BEGIN WITH PROTEIN

It's right there in the name yet so few bars really focus on the actual protein. Sure, there are bars with 20, 30, 40 and sometimes as much as 50 grams of protein. But do you always need that much? And more importantly, what happens if you eat too much protein? Can your body use all that protein?

THE PERFECT SOURCE OF PROTEIN

Now at this point, you may be curious. "What is the best source of protein?" you may be asking yourself.

The answer is PerfectAmino. 

PerfectAmino is a pure, clean and exceptional essential amino acid supplement. It contains all 8 essential amino acids in the perfect ratios, and boasts over 99% utilization. It's quite literally the perfect protein-building supplement. PerfectAmino allows you to get the absolute most - with virtually no waste.

And there's only one protein bar that contains PerfectAmino. The BodyHealth Bar.

WHAT IS PERFECTAMINO?

REBUILDING YOUR BODY WITH THE PERFECT PROTEIN BUIILDER

Most of your body is composed of proteins - the heart, muscles, bones and blood are proteins. As your body moves around, whether it be from exercise, or just walking up stairs, it burns calories, loses water, minerals and protein. 

To put water back into the body, you drink water. The same for minerals. But putting protein back into the body is different. Your body does not simply take protein and make protein. You can't just eat 10 grams of protein and make 10 grams of protein. 

To produce protein, your body must take in the 8 essential amino acids - called "essential" because your body does not produce them - you must get them from food. When you eat foods containing amino acids such as meat or fish, your body can take a portion of the amino acids within and make protein, replenishing what was lost or "burned." But meats are fish are not a very efficient source of protein because the amino acids within them are in the wrong ratios - too much of some amino acids and not enough of others. Your body can only utilize about 32% of them, the rest are wasted.

So what is PerfectAmino? It's all 8 essential amino acids in the correct ratios. And when you take PerfectAmino, your body can synthesize the amino acids and begin to build new protein in just 23 minutes - utilizing 99% or more! It's truly a perfect protein source. And that's why it has helped to change so many lives - it provides what the body needs to operate. 

WHICH AMINO ACIDS ARE IN THE PERFECTAMINO?

TRYPTOPHAN - Encourages the release of vital neurotransmitters and hormones for mood and sleep, such as serotonin and melatonin.*

LYSINE -If deficient, may result in a niacin deficiency (Vitamin B), as well as slow connective tissue repair.*

METHIONINE - Supplies sulfur and the other compounds you need for optimum metabolism and growth.*

VALINE - Needed for your muscle fibers to fire, for tissue repair, and for the maintenance of proper nitrogen balance in the body.*

LEUCINE - Stimulates muscle protein synthesis and may be the dominant fuel involved in anabolic (tissue building) reactions.*

ISOLEUCINE - Essential for blood sugar regulation, muscle development and repair, and energy regulation.*

THREONINE - Crucial for antibody production, immune system activity, and can be converted into glycine and serine.*

PHENYLALANINE - Stimulates the release of neurotransmitters and hormones, which are necessary substances for optimum activity of your central and peripheral nervous systems.*

MORE ON PERFECTAMINO

PerfectAmino has no binders, coatings, fillers, or anything else —just the amino acids themselves.

1 serving of PerfectAmino is precisely 1 gram of PURE protein. In comparison, 1 serving would be equivalent to 6 grams of whey protein, 3 grams of meat protein, or 2 grams of egg protein. But with none of the hormones, GMOs, carbs or calories!

PerfectAmino is vegan sourced, non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free and is extremely clean and pure.
