According to the CDC, only 27% of Americans consume more than 3 servings of vegetables per day. 3 servings are the recommended minimum required for reasonable health. It’s a pretty alarming commentary on the state of the average American diet.
We are eating way too much fat, way too much sugar, and way too many carbs.
It becomes even more alarming when you look at the actual nutritional value of vegetables themselves. Intensive, chemically-based industrial farming has been slowly depleting our soils of essential minerals for decades, each crop less nutritious than the one that came before.
According to this article in Scientific American, in the last 40 years, the nutritional content of iron alone has fallen over 37%. One study from the University of Colorado estimates that overall nutritional value has dropped 40-60% in the last 100 years.
Minerals are critical for enzymes, hormone production, and thousands of other biological processes that keep us healthy.
But it’s not just that we need the minerals from the plants.
The plants themselves need the minerals to make vitamins and other important phytonutrients. And these phytonutrients are not something we can easily create in a lab and packaged into a pill.
Things like L-theonine in green tea or theobromine from cacao.
Our only source is healthy plants.
So can we do to fortify ourselves against this loss in nutritional value?
Many people have nutritional deficiencies they don’t even know about. Sometimes it’s magnesium. Sometimes it’s an amino acid like tryptophan.
So, instead of addressing each problem individually with a dozen different supplements, we designed a fully loaded meal replacement to help you address your complete health: PerfectAmino PowerMeal
It is loaded with organic superfoods, bioavailable vitamins and minerals, trace minerals from pink Himalayan salt, spirulina, green tea, and even saw palmetto berry extract for hormonal balance.
This is added to a powerful base of our PerfectAmino formula, MCT Oil, and an incredible nutritional innovation in energy called Carb10.
Our mission is to provide you with information and tools to optimize your health and performance and we believe this may be the most potent one we’ve ever created.

So, we’re going to dig into a big one: macros – aka macronutrients.
Now you’ve probably heard about macronutrients, especially in relation to a paleo or ketogenic diet.
So, what’s the big deal? What’s actually important? What’s fluff? And what’s worth paying attention to?
