The Hardest Thing I Have Ever Had to Do

Eight years ago, several years after I started my online business, I completed a task that most people would think should have been the first thing to do in this situation. I created a Multi-Vite and called it Monster Multi with Minerals. I still do, as a matter of fact call it that, although it’s been through several redesigns and upgrades in ingredients and of course cover art.

I know for a fact, a few readers out there have the original bottle with its “silver surfer-like” emblem saved as a souvenir.  Perhaps you are one of them.

The truth is it took me 4 long years to perfect that formula, because it had to be the bomb of all bombs, the monster of all monsters and of course the pinnacle of multi-vites. But, it could not just be a multi-vite; that would not fit my modus operendi, which is anti-aging all the way, baby!

It had to be an anti-aging multi-vite, designed specifically to encase not only the usual suspects we all need, like Vitamin C and D along with trace minerals.  It had to address the then not well known selenium deficiency in the Western World.  It had to have additional antioxidants like bromelain, broccoli extract (Sulforaphane and DIM), Alpha Lipoic Acid, and green tea extract.

Right about now you are saying, “Big whoop, Doc; lots of stuff has those things!”

Well, they didn’t have them in 2004, I can tell you! You see, without thinking, I pretty much caused a revolution in the industry and gave rise to the class, “anti-aging multi vites”!  Back in the day, when I started, these did not exist and not a small amount of clinical research went into the design of the original product.

We’ve kept it up to date as well.

But, I went one better 3 years ago. Realizing that it was impossible to create a single multi with everything in it and responding to requests from my loyal customers, for an affordable once-a-day all encompassing routine, I created The Daily Dose Pack by including Fish oil and Cardio Booster in the bundle.

Then, I priced it right, especially on continuity/subscription, so anyone could get the total package for basic health and anti-aging.

If they took everything from me and put me on a desert island and allowed me only one supplement, The Daily Dose Pack would be it.

To this day the creation of those ingredients has been the hardest thing I have ever had to do. And it, like me, has stood the test of time.

Today’s Xmas Flash Sale Announcement

OK Today we have Young Life Daily on Mega Sale for subscription/continuity.

This will be the absolute lowest price we can get for you and you are locked in at this price for as long as you maintain your subscription.

Free shipping in CONUS as well so you won’t get a better deal and you won’t find a better multi!!!

This is a completely new product totally revamped from any of the prior Multi’s I made and is the result of hours of painstaking research and development. As I have said in the past, making a multi is the hardest thing I ever did because you have to figure out what is typically missing across the board from the diet. That includes looking at things like soil analysis, toxin load and ingredient interactions.

In terms of man hours this is the Big Kahuna!

But it is an incredible product and the corner stone of any serious nutrition or anti-aging program. Remember its purpose built to “support healthy aging” which is unlike any other multi out there.

If you’re not on it you wanna be for sure and now it’s the lowest price it can be.

Act now and lay the foundation of superior nutrition for everything else you do!!!!

How Is Your Holiday Nutrition?

After having spent about 7 hours in the kitchen on Thursday making the “traditional” Thanksgiving dinner I wondered how you did it! Did you cook, or did you visit?

I thought I might share some thoughts and a few recipes as well since its so very easy to do poorly with our eating and our choices over the holidays.

First a couple of rules for me:

1) I make doubly sure I take at least 6 fish oil that day because I know there are going to be more Omega 6 inflammatory fats in the diet that day.

2) If you were EVER going to take a multi to make up for the gaps in the nutritional value of the food you are going to eat now is the time! You and I have both heard the varying degrees of lack of nutrition in the food we eat but a conservative estimate is 50% less than 70 years ago due to the way soil is treated. Sadly buying organic does not absolve us from this problem!

3) Make sure you get at least your routine exercise!

4) A longer fast than usual is best on the Holiday day itself. Personally I did not start eating on Thanksgiving until late in the day leaving a good 18 hours without food.

You won’t die! And believe it or not once you get past your usual preprogrammed time to eat you will find you are less hungry not more- that is until you actually begin to eat and then you will really enjoy it.

OK so here are few other notes from the table:

In general we kept carbs lower than the recipes called for either doing without sugar or substituting Truvia or Stevia for the sweet.

The turkey was hormone free, free range and the sausage (used for the stuffing) was also no nitrate non cured. You can use similar bacon for a substitute if you have trouble finding this type of sausage locally.

The turkey was rubbed (separating the skin from the meat) with a mixture of free range butter thyme rosemary, and olive oil and roasted at 400F until hitting 155 internally at the thigh.

The stuffing was a traditional bread stuffing but the bread was cut in half and the bulk of this stuffing was filled with sausage, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, and red onion baked at 400 with the turkey but for a shorter period of time so it went in a bit later.

Salad was torn endive, moderately toasted previously raw walnuts, shelled hazelnuts (easy on these they are high in Omega 6), Macoun apple slices and pomegranate arils. Dressing was buttermilk, olive oil based mayo, chives, and a little lemon rind.

All pretty simple but requiring a fair amount of prep.

And yes, I took my multis with the meal on this day.

I don’t think a rare indulgence is a problem especially if you cover your bases!

Oh Yeah finally, several of my readers have been asking about a sale and when it might be.

There is no question we are going to have an “event” but it is going to be a little different this year mainly because so many people have usurped my ideas that we are due for a change.

The how and when of it is a secret to discourage the copycats as is the structure, but it will not be just like before that is for sure. It will also not be “like what everyone else is doing”!

You should know by now that I am anything but typical!

Bottom line: stay tuned and pay attention to the emails because that is where all will be revealed!

Enjoy the Holidays!

The Enemy At The Gates: Inflamation

When we look at aging objectively there are a few common themes. At the head of the class is inflammation.

Indeed, inflammation seems to guaranteed for anyone over 40. Its not just external factors like EM from all the electronic devices, poorer air quality, poorer water quality and lousy diet with nutritionally poorer food, there is an internal change in our body as well.

No one is sure which is the chicken and which is the egg here but it is clear that those genes that are responsible for more inflammation are “turned on” and those that suppress it are turned off.

I have searched long and hard for the answer but frankly I am more interested in the result- suppressing that inflammation that seems to be a body wide attack.

The most important things you can do involved maintaining a higher level of an essential oil, Omega 3 as compared to your Omega 6 fats. Now a while back someone tried to get fish oil certified as an anti- inflammatory compound. The powers that be denied this “claim” because the standard way of measuring known as ORAC (oxygen radical absorption capacity) was actually zero for fish oil.

This is a classic case of people in power not knowing anything about what they are regulating. Fish oil does indeed have no direct free radical suppression. It is however the “Master Switch” of the entire anti-inflammatory cascade. Another way of saying this is it’s the beginning not the end, but without beginning you cannot get to the end.

So, in this battle against the Enemy at the Gates- Inflammation, it is the biggest most important weapon you can harness.

Now what about the role of the so-called known anti-oxidants like Vitamin E, Curcumin, Bromelain etc. etc.?

Well, coupled with co factors such as B vitamins, zinc, selenium, magnesium and the like these guys form the actual soldiers. But an army without a general is defeated quickly.

Fish oil is the general!

Young Life Daily is the generals’ army.

You need them both to fight and win this battle against what will soon be recognized as a disease- Aging!

Fight it to win!
