I wanted to share with you how Perfect Amino helped me while I trained for my first bikini/fitness competition. First, I have been using it for 6 years. I used it the entire time I was pregnant with both my children and felt so good knowing I was getting some good quality protein during my pregnancy and while nursing.
Even on really hard lifting days I rarely had muscle soreness. If I did experience soreness it was never long lasting or very intense. I can only attribute to the Perfect Amino.
But let's talk about the competition…I decided about 8 weeks out that I wanted to compete. I was in relatively good shape and knew with commitment I could be stage ready in that amount of time. As you probably know when a person is prepping for any stage competition muscle definition and fast loss is all that matters (well besides posing). So I immediately starting cutting calories. Initially I went from 2000 calories down to 1500. I continued to lift very heavy 5 days a week so of course protein was high on my priority list. I slowly saw fat loss but the interesting part was that I saw strength increase. Most people will tell you to simply maintain your current weights for your lifts but I never felt the need. I felt great so I increased weight each session. To top it off, I was rarely sore. Even on really hard lifting days I rarely had muscle soreness. If I did experience soreness it was never long lasting or very intense. I can only attribute to the Perfect Amino.
Four weeks from the competition I dropped to 1300 calories a day but kept workouts the same--5 days a week. My trainer kept telling me I needed to cut out a day but I'm not always the best listener and continued. Yes there were moments when I wanted chocolate and pie and cookies but that's normal when you are on a limited diet with limited calories. But I never felt miserable. It was almost more psychological cravings and I simply had to learn to fight through that. In addition to training 60-90 minutes a day, I was also posing 30 minutes a day 7 days a week, and was a single mom to 2 children ages 4 and 6. Yet, for the most part, I had the energy to do what I needed to do each day. Most of my friends who compete are miserable at this stage. The most amazing thing? The week before my competition I set a PR doing hip thrusts pushing 185#. I probably could have done more.
In a separate email I will send you some before and after photos as well as photos from the day of the competition. I just wanted to thank you for creating this product. It's truly like nothing else on the market.

Today, many people suffer from a condition they may not even know exists: “leaky gut.”
You see, the gut requires adequate amounts of essential amino acids to regenerate itself every few days. If they are lacking in the body, then the gut membrane can become more permeable, creating an increased susceptibility to “leak” fragments from proteins and microorganisms into the bloodstream from the intestines.
As you can imagine, this is very bad. Some people contract infections from their own intestines, which can lead to a blood infection, resulting in sepsis or meningitis.
The word “micronutrients” sure sounds nice.
Health marketers use it as a generic catch-all term, but usually without any specific meaning.
It’s easy to have an idea about what it probably is –– small nutrients, right? –– and it’s easy to understand that they are probably important.
But what are they really? And what do they do? Are there different kinds?
This article will help you clear up the confusion so you can make an informed choice about your health and nutrition and what is or is not a worthwhile purchase.
