Best Sports Nutrition 2009 Supplements of the Year

Over the past year, our visitors and staff have evaluated many products. The results below reflect a comilation of feedback from all sources:

1. Sytropin – We have used this product, taken a break from it and returned to it. We have definitely found that overall it has made the biggest difference in performance, especially from an aerobic capacity and endurance standpoint. We have also found benefits in weight management and lower body fat. Sytropin is our top pick for 2009. It is a homeopathic spray with a comprehensive array of amino acids and growth factors that stimulates the body’s own production of human growth hormone.


2. Immunocal Platinum – Best new discovery of 2009. If you haven’t already heard of glutathione, you will. Glutathione occurs naturally in the body. It is the body’s major anti-oxidant, immune system optimizer and detoxifier. It exists in virtually every cell in the body. It is produced within the cell by glycine, glutamine and cysteine. In the average North American diet, cysteine is either non-existent or scarce. An additional challenge is getting cysteine into the cells in a biologically active state. Immunocal Platinum is the result of decades of research conducted primarily at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. It is the only natural product that is both clinically and scientifically proven to optimize the immune system by raising glutathione levels. It is an undenatured whey protein isolate that is backed by over 70 worldwide patents. Coincidentally, it has also been clinically proven to enhance muscle performance.

3. Primorye Stress Relief Plus – Best stress reduction product. Named after the region in Russia from which most of its herbs are derived, this product is the result of billions of dollars of research over decades, spearheaded by the Soviet Academy of Sciences. Oxyfresh combined the herbal extract with aloe from Costa Rica and other micronutrients to formulate a truly remarkable product. Its benefits are many, not the least of which are the regulation of excess cortisol, a reduction in overall stress, increased focus and an immune system booster. Use it daily and use its partner product Primorye Gold before and after workouts.

4. Montmorency Concentrated Cherry Juice – This product is also a new discovery for us. It is a powerful anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and contains naturally occurring melatonin, which helps with sleep and is a brain anti-oxidant.

5. Vega Health Optimizer – Our favorite protein powder. Developed by Brendon Brazier, a vegan triathlete, this product contains the correct amount and balance of the various proteins required to repair and rebuild muscle tissue. It is available in a variety of flavors.

6. Oxyfresh Foundation Formula – This is our favorite comprehensive daily multivitamin and mineral packet. It not only contains 3 multivitamin capsules, but omega-3, vitamin E, antioxidant and digestive enzyme capsules as well. It contains the best types of nutrients and the most optimal amounts and combination of nutrients for athletes. For endurance and elite athletes, we recommend 2 packets a day. Capsules are packaged in very convenient packets for easy transport while on the road.

7. Vega Sport Performance Optimizer – Fantastic electrolyte and energy powder easily added to water. Comes in a variety of flavors.
Vega Sport Performance Optimizer - Box of 24 Single Serving Pouches - Lemon Lime

8. Oxyfresh Joint Formula – Best new product of 2009. This product was introduced by Oxyfresh last year and is the best joint formula we have come across to date. This scientifically proven formula is formulated to start repairing joints and relieving pain within 30 days. It reduces joint discomfort, restores mobility and flexibility and protects joints from deterioration. Joint Formula contains the patented UC-II, an undenatured  type-II collagen, derived from chicken sternum cartilage.

HGH and Weight Loss

The other day, I shared with you my experiences with hgh and the increase in endurance it made for me after using the product for just 3 days. I am happy to report that after one and a half months, the endurance capacity has continued to stay increased, with mulitple runs of 1:30 – 2 hours in length and bike rides of 2 1/2 hours.

The other benefit I wanted to report on today is that of weight loss. At the end of my hockey season in mid-April, I was weighing in at 169 lbs. Now, I know that isn’t heavy for most people and I never have been a heavy guy, especially considering how active I’ve been all my life. I am 5 ft 9 inches tall. Since starting to incorporate an hgh (human growth hormone) precursor (also known as a booster), I have lost 7 pounds or 4% of my weight. I actually don’t even focus much on weight as I’m not that heavy to start with, but I did find it interesting that without trying, my weight has declined.


More important to me, however, is body fat percentage. This is a number that I do keep track of and have wanted to get it down as much as I can. At the end of hockey season, I was at 19% body fat, which has been pretty much consistent over the last few years. Well, as of yesterday, that figure had dropped to 15%. This I find gratifying and surprising. That’s a 21% drop in body fat percent, which by any standard I find huge. I will continue to monitor both my body fat percentage and weight to see how they progress over a longer period of time.

The product I use I found on an hgh product review website. It is the top rated product. I like the fact it is an oral spray. It’s easy to administer and works quicker than capsules, in my opinion.

About HGH (Human Growth Hormone) and My Early Personal Experience

I’ve been looking at HGH (human growth hormone) with curiosity for some time. I was skeptical about taking the plunge into using an HGH product. I am an ingredient reader and believe in trying products as long as I feel convinced that they are safe. As you may have guessed, I don’t use any drugs (prescription or over the counter) as I feel these are very dangerous when used chronically.

So I started my investigation and was intrigued with a few of the products I studied. I was looking for products that were homeopathic and safe. The first one I tried showed no noticeable difference. However, the latest one I have been using has had noticeable positive affects which I am happy to share with you.

On only day 3, I went for a run on the Grouse Grind in North Vancouver, British Columbia. It was my first time doing “The Grind” this year. Since keeping track in 2002, I have run the Grind 22 times. I only ran it once last year (in 49:30). For those of you unfamiliar with the Grind, it is a straight ascent with no breaks 853 meters up Grouse Mountain. Its distance of 2.8 kilometers is deceptive as it is a straight vertical climb to the top. It is a fabulous cardio workout which is akin to being on a stair climber at a very difficult setting.


In any case, I couldn’t remember what my previous times were, but I finished it on this day in 43:30. The interesting part to me was that it felt relatively easy. I didn’t feel tired at all. Sure enough, when I returned home and input the times in my computer, I discovered that this was the third fastest time I’ve had since 2002. But it doesn’t end there. When my 3 buddies and I got to the top, we ran down the backside on the old Grouse Mountain Highway Road and I just couldn’t stop running. I was in a zone and it felt like I could run forever. In the end, the total run took me 1:45:00 and I still felt refreshed afterwards.

I can only attribute this to the HGH product which I had started using 3 days prior, since it was the only thing I had changed in my routine.

The product I use is the top recommended product at an hgh review website I visited.

I sure hope my experience continues to be this positive.
