Monday Morning Health Minute


March 19, 2012    V6 N12 


When some of my friends involved in extreme sports came to me a few years ago and told me they needed a powerful fuel to carry them through their competitions and their workouts, I knew exactly what I had to do.

I knew that I had several incredible products that could help them get through their athletic endeavors with energy to spare - products that many of our athletes were already buying separately and mixing together. At this time, I realized it was time to make it easier - and more inexpensive - for them to have a comprehensive, nutrient dense sports drink that was free of artificial ingredients and stimulants and came in only one container.

The basis of this proprietary blend that I call the Power Shake is our super star superfood Activated Barley- this is the sustenance of the gladiators, the only food the gladiators were allowed to eat before they fought in the circus and is a slow-burning complex carbohydrate that provides sustained energy.

To this pre-sprouted barley grain, I then added the power food of the Aztec Indians, Spirulina; the most perfect single nutrient source on Earth. Spirulina is a blue green algae that is 65% pure vegetarian protein and loaded with all of the essential fats and other nutrients your body needs to fuel your cells.

My next ingredient was pure Carrot juice which sweetens the drink while it helps to energize your body.

Next I opted to use the power of brown rice - NOT the center white portion but the outer, highly nutritious bran. This is the food that is used by martial artists all across Asia to give them strength and endurance on a daily basis.

The final ingredient in this extremely nourishing superfood shake is the most powerful green vegetable known to man - Kamut wheatgrass juice. I can never say enough about Kamut wheatgrass - not only will it oxygenate the body and detoxify lactic acid that builds up during rigorous workouts - it CONTAINS EVERY VITAL NUTRIENT that an athlete’s body needs on a cellular level. They don't call wheatgrass "Nature's Steroids" for nothing…but luckily it comes without any of the harmful side effects attributed to illegal steroids!

Just 2 scoops (5 tbsp) of Purium’s energizing Power Shake mixed with pure water will give your body all of the nutritious fuel you need to maximize your athletic performances.


You may also wish to add Purium's Creamy Vanilla Meal Option – a great source of whey protein (with no casein or lactose which typically acts as allergens) - or mix it with coconut water or freshly pressed carrot juice.

The recipe options are actually pretty endless – feel free to get creative, just like I did in the following video...

Keep in mind that this video was shot in Norway where we call the Power Shake “Hippokrates Power” and we call the Creamy Vanilla Meal Option “Nutrition Now.”

Just a few minutes of daily exercise alters DNA to help prevent chronic disease

by John Phillip

(NaturalNews) Many people think the genes they inherited at birth are static and predetermine their fate for the remainder of their life. Extensive research into the science of epigenetics is providing startling evidence that this thought process is grossly outdated, and our individual DNA is dynamic and continually influenced by multiple lifestyle factors including diet, environment, stress and physical activity.

Researchers publishing the result of a study in the journal Cell Metabolism provide evidence that that when healthy but inactive men and women exercise for a matter of minutes, it produces a rather immediate change to their DNA. While we cannot change our core DNA code, exercise does influence the DNA molecules within our muscles. Scientists have found that DNA is chemically and structurally altered or expressed in very important ways that affect a myriad of metabolic processes that protect us from chronic disease.

The scientists found that DNA modifications signal precise genetic reprogramming in muscles that determine overall muscle strength as well as structural and metabolic benefits derived from physical activity. Study leader, Dr. Juleen Zierath noted "Our muscles are really plastic ... muscle adapts to what you do. If you don't use it, you lose it, and this is one of the mechanisms that allows that to happen."

Short bursts of moderate intensity exercise positively influences DNA expression

Epigenetic modifications involve the addition or deletion of chemical markers on the DNA strand that change rapidly based on environmental influences such as the nutritional composition of your last meal, pollutants in the environment or the intensity of an exercise workout. Researchers found that DNA within skeletal muscle examined after a short burst of exercise bore fewer chemical markers (specifically methyl groups) than it did before exercise.

The study team specifically determined that the DNA modifications occurred in stretches of DNA that are involved in expressing genes known to be important for muscular adaptation to exercise. This research clearly provides more evidence that our genetic constitution is continually evolving in an effort to protect us, and is positively influenced by short, moderately intense bursts of physical activity. These alterations allow us to adapt quickly to the changing environment that surrounds us.

Dr. Zierath concluded "Exercise is medicine ... and it seems the means to alter our genome for better health may be only a jog away." The finding of this study may explain recent research showing that the best form of exercise works our musculature in short bursts of moderate to full intensity (as measured by attaining maximum heart rate for your age range) for several minutes in duration, followed by a rest period and then another energy burst. Combining this evidence with an organic whole food diet will positively influence your genes toward optimal health.
