BodyHealth's PerfectAmino Cleared for Professional Sports

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, October 5, 2016—PerfectAmino, by Clearwater, Florida-based BodyHealth has been tested and successfully cleared for a wide range of substances banned by WADA (the World Anti-Doping Agency) by Lexington, Kentucky-based LGC Science (Formerly HFL Sport Science), a world-class doping control laboratory with over 52 years of experience in drug surveillance in sports.

LGC’s testing specification has been developed based on the analysis of well over 55,000 supplement samples as well as research into supplement contamination levels and positive drug tests within professional sports on a global basis. LGC’s  testing capability for supplements and dietary ingredients includes analysis for a broad range of banned substances (steroids, stimulants, diuretics, masking agents, etc.).

LGC has identified 147 core substances that may occur as contaminants in supplements, and these are tested using ISO17025 accredited methods. All of these substances appear on the WADA Prohibited List, as well as lists from organizations such as the NFL, NCAA, MLB, NBA, MLS, PGA and NHL.

In a random test conducted of PerfectAmino (Lot #6H48), none of these substances were found to be present.

The testing methods for all samples tested through LGC can detect banned substance contaminants at levels of just 10 ng/g (10 parts per billion) or lower. This is similar to a teaspoon of a substance dropped into an OLYMPIC sized swimming pool! The detection limits indicated are widely considered to be those necessary to re-assure the athlete that they are not taking undue risks.

“PerfectAmino's tablets clean bill of health not only speaks to the supplement’s purity and safety, but also gives strong assurance to elite and professional athletes that our amino-acid supplement has been cleared for use before, during and after competitive and sanctioned events,” said BodyHealth founder, Dr. David Minkoff, M.D., a 41-time Ironman triathlon finisher (including 8 appearances at the Ironman World Championships) who has first-hand experience helping athletes achieve optimum conditioning.

The Unseen Effects of Heartburn and Indigestion Medications
The Unseen Effects of Heartburn and Indigestion Medications

by Dr. David Minkoff July 16, 2019 5 min read

The following is adapted from The Search for the Perfect Protein.

If you watch much TV, you’ve undoubtedly seen a heartburn medication commercial at some point. The makers of Pepcid and Zantac confidently tell us we can eat a hoagie with sausage and peppers and not feel any heartburn. How wonderful!

Except these commercials send the wrong message. They indoctrinate the public to believe the answer to their problem is another drug: “I’ll take this, and I’ll be fine.”

This mindset ignores the root causes of heartburn and indigestion and sends us down the wrong treatment pathway. In my experience, when people understand how stomach acid aids our digestion, they’re less likely to turn to a medication that blocks the production of stomach acid. They want their body to functional normally.

The Science of Protein Utilization (What actually happens when you consume protein)
The Science of Protein Utilization (What actually happens when you consume protein)

Trying to get enough protein into your body to increase lean muscle mass, recovery and endurance?

STOP.

It’s not a matter of how much protein you're consuming — but how much your body is able to use.

And depending on what protein sources you're using... that may not be very much.

But what's even worse? What the unused protein gets turned into. (Hint: It starts with an S and ends with UGAR.)

... Yeah, it gets turned into carbs (glucose) or stored as fat. 

But let's back up. Because to understand the above you need to understand what protein actually is, and more importantly, what happens when it enters your body.

The Unknown Link Between Protein, Beauty Concerns, and Menopause
The Unknown Link Between Protein, Beauty Concerns, and Menopause

by Dr. David Minkoff July 09, 2019 4 min read

The following is adapted from The Search for the Perfect Protein.

What’s the common link between menopause and beauty concerns (sagging skin, hair loss) in women who are aging? It might surprise you to learn it’s a lack of protein.

One study showed that over a month’s period of time, adding an essential amino acid blend (amino acids are critical for making protein in the body) to a 2,000 calorie diet of mainly vegetables and some fruits plus walking for an hour a day resulted in significant weight loss without sagging skin under the chin or in other areas of the body.

Amino acids also help women mitigate the effects of menopause. During menopause, falling levels of hormones cause lean body tissue to begin to break down. Loss of bone, skin collagen, muscle mass, brain cells, and neurotransmitters all lead to more rapid aging, and the feeling that one is getting old. Wrinkles, weakness, osteoporosis, sagging skin, and a loss of energy occurs—all things women want to avoid.
