Dave Asprey, Founder and CEO spent 20 years to hack his own biology, ‘biohacking’ and upgraded his brain, he lost over 100 pounds and maximized his performance. The proprietary Bulletproof process optimizes every step of coffee production for performance by minimizing the opportunity for performance-robbing mold toxins that can contribute to chronic health issues.

 

Bulletproof Coffee Beans are meticulously grown at high altitude on single estates in Guatemala, are hand-harvested, carefully processed and roasted to maintain maximum integrity and flavor. The final roast undergoes proprietary lab testing to verify that the coffee meets the Bulletproof quality control and purity standards. Bulletproof coffee beans are grown, harvested & roasted to minimize the opportunity of mold toxins and undergo third-party lab-testing for 27 types of the most common mold toxins. Beans are medium roasted in small batches to enhance the naturally occurring antioxidant capacity and flavor, supporting energy, mental focus and performance.

 

Bulletproof’s Brain Octane is 100% Caprylic Acid, the most ketogenic MCT from the most precious part of the coconut. Brain Octane is the shortest of the MCTs and is 18-times more concentrated in Caprylic Acid than regular coconut oil. Supporting cognitive function, it is processed rapidly and easily digested, being quickly and easily absorbed by the brain & body and is not stored as fat. It converts the most ketogenic MCT into energy and is used by the brain faster than other fats or oils. It is metabolized differently than other types of fat and does not increase cholesterol, making it the top choice for reaching peak brain performance all day. It is odorless, flavorless and liquid at room temperature and can be substituted for other edible oils to support more intense mental activity.

 

MCT Oil isn’t just for coffee!  You can make all kinds of tasty treats with it – check this recipe out:

Recipe & Content provided by Jordan Pie

This is a delicious keto chocolate shake with minimal ingredients that takes less than 2 minutes to make. It’s low-carb, contains quality fats and protein, and is full of energy. The cinnamon and vanilla both add depth to the flavor to this shake and the added coconut milk makes it smooth and creamy.

Amino Acids: Fermentation or Chemical Extraction…Shocking Revelation!

Amino acids are best known as the building blocks of protein. As Dr. Eric Braverman states in his book, The Healing Nutrients Within, proteins found in the human body are second only to water. A proper diet can go a long way in satisfying the body’s needs for essential and nonessential amino acids; however, the typical diet is less than ideal. For this reason, everyone should consider adding amino acids to his or her supplement regimen.

Amino acids have a variety of applications for many bodily functions and ailments. Here are just a few examples:

  • Tryptophan: Natural relaxant, sleep aid
  • Lysine: Growth hormone stimulator, tissue repair, collagen producer
  • Tyrosine: Regulator of moods, addictions, and attention span
  • Arginine: Reduces heart disease risk, burns fat, releases growth hormone
  • DLPA: Controls pain and appetite, increases endorphin activity
  • GABA: Good for brain metabolism, stress reduction, and sex drive

This is great news for those who are seeking natural relief, and many take advantage of the benefits amino acids can offer. However, a major consideration should be made: not all amino acids are created equally.

Big box retailers often have vitamin sections where customers can purchase an array of supplements at a fairly low price. However, if customers did more research on the origins of their favourite “bargain” supplements, they might be shocked bytheir findings. Did you know that most inexpensive amino acids are derived from human sewage, duck feathers, or human hair, and are chemically produced? And, even if that issue is avoided, there is another major issue–the issue of potency. Are the ingredient amounts enough to achieve a noticeable difference in the body, or are they just there for show? For that matter, are the listed ingredients even the same as the actual ingredients contained in the capsules?

For these reasons and more, we recommend buying from a local health food store instead. Health food stores know their audience, and are more likely to research products before bringing them in. Still, customers should know how to delineate the best of the bunch—even in a health food store.

The best amino acids are produced using the fermentation method. This is a natural production – similar to the method used in producing yogurt, beer, vinegar, miso, soy sauce, etc. Fermented amino acids start with nutrients (starches, cane sugars) which are converted to target amino acids using microorganisms and enzymes. Consecutive reactions by up to 30 kinds of enzymes yield various amino acids. Instead of breaking a protein into amino acid pieces and trying to clean it up with solvents and chemicals, fermentation uses optimized metabolic pathways and specialized complex enzymes in order to “build” the target amino acids. It is the same natural way our bodies make many amino acids.

Life Choice amino acids are all produced by this fermentation process, and they begin with vegan-based sources, which are fermented for greater cellular delivery. For these reasons, especially if you are vegetarian, vegan, or are concerned with being Kosher or Halal, you should consider taking Life Choice products. We use the same process in all our amino acids—even amino acids used in specialty formulations, like Neurotransmitter Support.

Because amino acids are so easy to come by, we try to set ourselves apart not only by our quality, but also by our formulations themselves. For example, our Tryptophan is formulated with B6 (P5P) to ensure it crosses the blood-brain barrier. These little extras make our supplements more effective.

We use the purest possible pharmaceutical grade raw materials, purchased from proven GMP manufacturers, and manufacture in Japan, the USA, or Europe. Except for our raw tissue gland formulations and our Full Spectrum Digestive Enzyme, the entire line is vegan. All amino acids are free form, and purity must be 99.9% or higher. We also use vegetarian capsules, because the quality of every component is paramount.  The result is professional, therapeutic medicine.

Red is the New Green! Red SuperFoods are the Hottest thing for Spring

Red is the New Green!

Remember when the green superfood revolution began? We sure do. Prairie Naturals helped establish this vital lifestyle trend of eating more colourful, antioxidant-rich plant foods with the launch of our Colours of Health family of whole food powders. Red-SuperFoods Organic Red SuperFood Blend is the newest member of our colourful superfood family. Enjoy the healing, energizing, and restorative powers of Organic Red-SuperFoods and truly “Live the Healthy Life.”

 

What’s so great about red superfoods?

Hippocrates, the father of medicine, taught his students to “let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Scientists have discovered that specific red superfoods do indeed provide robust and distinct nutritional benefits, namely as rich sources of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and antioxidants. Each one of the organically grown, concentrated red food powders selected for Red-SuperFoods is recognized for its health-promoting, disease-preventing and energy-restoring properties. The diversity and synergy of this unique blend of red plant foods ensures a wide range of nutritional and health benefits.

 

What’s an antioxidant?

Antioxidants are protective substances that destroy free radicals, which are harmful compounds in the body that damage DNA (genetic material) and even cause premature cell death. Scientists believe free radicals contribute to aging and inflammation, as well as the development of a number of health problems, including heart disease and cancer.

What are the ingredients in Red-SuperFoods & What Do They Do?

There is nothing else quite like this potent blend of deliciously nutritious organic red plant foods! Check out this impressive list of wholesome and healing ingredients in Red-SuperFoods:

 

Organic Beet Roots

Organic Beet Roots provide naturally occurring nitrates which are converted into nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide helps relax and dilate blood vessels, thus improving blood flow and lowering blood pressure.

Athletes especially benefit from beets because they improve tolerance to high-intensity exercise, boost stamina and reduce oxygen needs! A good source of betaine, iron, folate, vitamin C, magnesium, potassium, manganese and betalain pigments including betacyanin (an antioxidant phytonutrient) beet root helps protect cells, proteins, and enzymes from environmental stress while also preventing inflammation and numerous chronic diseases, protecting internal organs and improving cardiovascular health. In addition, organic beets help to support the process of detoxification.

 

Organic Pomegranates

n addition to being delicious, the dark red, juice-filled seed sacs of pomegranates are concentrated source of three main types of antioxidant polyphenols (tannins, anthocyanins, and ellagic acid). These antioxidants have been shown to protect cells against cancer and prevent aging by neutralizing the free radicals that cause oxidative stress and lead to accelerated tissue and organ damage. They also help to lower chronic inflammation. A recent human study in Israel showed significant improvement for arthritis sufferers including reduced joint pain and decreased inflammation. The antioxidants in pomegranates may help reduce inflammation that contributes to the destruction of cartilage in joints.

 

Organic Goji Berries

Goji berries are a health-promoting red-orange superfood berry that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine and food for more than 2000 years! Goji berries have been described as having a taste similar to a cross between cherries, cranberries and raisins. Recent research published in the journal of Neuromolecular Medicine (March 2016) describe this unique berry as having “powerful neuro-protective effects on a number of neuronal diseases” including retinal disorders, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and spinal cord injury. Also known as wolfberry, Goji berries contain the colourful phytonutrient pigments zeaxanthin and carotene as well as therapeutic polysaccharides known to have antioxidant and anti-aging properties.

 

Organic Grapeseed

Grapeseed substantially increases blood levels of antioxidants. Grapeseed is used for a wide range of health problems related to free radical damage, including premature aging, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

 

Organic Carrots

Carrots are best known for their exceptional beta carotene content, carrots are an abundant source of this bright orange antioxidant with disease-fighting powers. Once converted to the active form of vitamin A, carrots help maintain immunity and prevent night blindness, dry eyes and impaired bone growth. They also protect cells from damage caused by free radicals and reduce cancer risk.

 

Organic Blueberries

Blueberries are ranked as the foremost fruit when it comes to antioxidant activity. They contain powerful phytochemicals, such as anthocyanin , which is protective against urinary-tract infections, cancer, age-related health conditions and brain damage from strokes. Blueberries also contain vitamins A and C, zinc, potassium, iron, calcium and magnesium.

 

Organic Strawberries

Strawberries follow blueberries as the second highest source of antioxidant capacity (compared to 40 common fruits and vegetables). Their main antioxidants are anthocynanins and ellagic acid, a phytochemical that has been shown to fight carcinogens and prevent the oxidation of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol implicated in the development of heart disease.

 

Organic Raspberries

Raspberries are rich in anthocyanins and cancer-fighting phytochemicals such as ellagic, coumaric and ferulic acid. They also contain calcium, vitamins A, C, E and folic acid. Raspberries have been found to protect against esophageal and other cancers.

 

Organic Cranberries

Cranberries are best known for their effectiveness in treating urinary-tract infections; cranberries also protect against heart disease, cancer and stroke. Rich in polyphenols (a potent antioxidant)

researchers have also found that they may inhibit the growth of human breast cancer cells and reduce the risk of gum disease, stomach ulcers and high cholesterol.

BioSil is on Sale while supplies last – It works for Christie Brinkley – why not give it a try?

Good skincare and great nutrition enhanced by BioSil have worked together for Christie Brinkley to reduce wrinkles from every angle and to hold off aging while providing the best results possible from both inside and out.

You don’t look this youthful, beautiful and healthy at 61 without making some very smart choices. For this, Christie relies on both her own instincts and advice from experts in the fields of nutrition, exercise and supplementation. That’s why Christie eats healthy foods and gets in 20 minutes of exercise a day (see BioSilUSA.com for a list of food choices and exercise routines). Christie also knows the right supplement can work wonders. And that’s why she takes BioSil™ every day. “I am amazed at the results I see on my skin, hair, and nails!”

 

Why BioSil? Simple…

Christie: “Gain Back Your Collagen, and Keep It!”

Christie understands that collagen “plumps” your skin and makes it smooth and youthful looking. In addition, she knows collagen gives your skin it’s vital elasticity. What’s more, collagen is responsible for helping to make your hair thicker and stronger. Nails stronger too. Christie chooses BioSil because it’s clinically proven to activate the enzymes that generate collagen. BioSil helps you regain lost collagen and add new collagen. Plus, BioSil protects both your new and existing collagen from breakdown due to the age-related rise in levels of homocysteine, the body’s anti-collagen amino acid.

That makes BioSil one very smart choice!

 

Christie: “I Like Knowing It’s Collagen with My Own DNA Fingerprint!”

BioSil is not “made out of collagen,” it “generates collagen” through your body’s own natural pathways. That means the collagen you add is collagen with your own DNA fingerprint. That’s why BioSil helps you look beautiful, youthful and healthy – Naturally!

 

Christie: “I Appreciate the Scientifically Valid Clinical Trials”

BioSil employed the double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical protocol, the gold standard in clinical trials. The trials are conducted on the actual product, BioSil, not a “key ingredient.” The results are based on calibrated scientific measurements, not personal opinion. And the results reported are all statistically significant meaning the results came from taking BioSil not some outside factor.

 

Christie: “No Animal By-Products, That’s Extremely Important to Me”

“I am a vegetarian. And I’ve spent a lifetime helping to protect the wonderful creatures who’ve been on the earth longer than we humans.”
