My first experience with nutrition companies was in 1986. The company (United Sciences of America) - did their research. Their products were good - and they got me thinking about nutrition in sports and health. After more than 30 years involved with nutrition - speaking, consulting, researching, we’ve decided to add some special nutrition products to our product store. This year Medhealthfit signed on with Purium Nutrition to offer some of their many products to our medically and sports-based colleagues.
Why now? Well – we see more of a need than ever regarding quality nutrients and medical foods. The products we are hosting are considered both supplements and medical foods. They can be used in the performance realm, and also help mitigate some aspects of chronic health conditions. The FDA doesn’t permit a nutrition company to state that they can “heal, cure, or prevent” a disease, and we’ll stick by that. We do believe that the FDA is wrong, and their entire premise for supplements needs to be changed.
We’re doing out part. We are offering some of the top quality products on the market. Here are two of our top picks.
Purium Super Green Gluten Free Power Shake. (Apple-Berry flavor and Regular) The Power shake includes ingredients such as organic Spirulina, Carrot Juice Powder, Wheatgrass Juice Powder, Amaranth, Alfalfa Leaf Juice Powder, and Lo Han Berry Extract.
The Super Green Power Shake provides many essential nutrients, and can be taken each morning as a shake (blender), with milk, rice or almond milk, or water. It contains approximately 150 calories per serving. It tastes great, and gets your nutrients to you faster than a meal. Concentrated. Powerful anti-oxidant. That’s what you’re getting.
Master Amino Acid Pattern Supplement (MAPS). Perhaps the perfect protein, MAPS was discovered in the early 1990s by Italian research Dr. Antonio Grandi. His formula of eight essential amino acids is digested in the duodenum in around 20 minutes. It has almost zero calories. Incredibly – MAPS has a 99% NNU, or net nitrogen utilization – which is far better than any other protein source (organ meats digest at around 40%, and protein powders are digested at less than 20%). Since it is digested at almost 100%, it goes into the cells for energy. It’s not wasted in the digestive process. It may be the most important protein discovery since protein metabolism was first researched over 100 years ago. We carry this product for our clinical clients, and for those who wish to distribute to their clientele for weight management, muscle recovery with exercise, and muscle wasting disorders that may be helped through MAPS because it’s not digested in the small intestines. Any type of bowel/digestive disorder would be helped using MAPS.
