The Health-Performance Continuum

Make it simple and save cash in the process.

This is exactly why Elite Fuel was created. Athletes who were also patients didn’t want to take 5, 6, 7, 8 different bottles from different companies, bought at different places to maximize their performance needs. They also didn’t want to spend the $250 a month to get all these supplements at doses required to make a difference. Not to mention finding theses different products without food coloring, synthetic sweeteners, loads of caffeine, fillers, and carcinogenic agents was nearly impossible.

Performance without the hassle

Is Magnesium beneficial in the process of maximizing fitness? Yes.
Is Ribose beneficial for energy transfer within heart and skeletal muscle tissue to maximize fitness? Yes.
Is Creatine beneficial for energy production in muscles tissue to maximize fitness? Yes.
Is Beta Alanine beneficial for decreasing muscle acidity to maximize fitness? Yes.
Is Taurine beneficial for maximizing heart fitness? Yes.
Is CoQ10 beneficial for creating more energy for more fitness? Yes.
Is Quercitin beneficial for creating more mitochondria and helping the brain overcome fitness barriers? Yes.
Are BCAAs beneficial for decreasing catabolism and increasing anabolism of muscle to maximize our fitness experience? Yes.
Is NAC beneficial in promotion of cellular detoxification and muscle recovery to maximize fitness? Yes.
Are methyl-B12 and 5-MTHF beneficial vitamins in helping the body recover and repair muscle and nerve tissue to maximize fitness? Yes.

Can all these vitamins and nutrients benefit me outside of the fitness arena?

Yes! The more efficiently the body creates energy, the more consistently DNA will be repaired perfectly and the bodies ability to adapt to life will happen without a hitch.

We don’t recommend taking supplements or eating food that doesn’t have both Health and Fitness Performance benefits. If we are not getting long term health benefits from our supplementation then we are setting ourselves up for catastrophe and the elimination of both our hard earned fitness and longevity.

Can we get all these nutrients in ONE synergistic formula?

Yes! Elite Fuel is the standard. If you haven’t given it a go yet, you are missing out on a significant opportunity.

What Kind of Vitamin B12 Should I take?

What B12 are you using?

More than likely you are using Cyanocobalamin (Cyanide + B12). Cyanocobalamin is the most commonly supplemented form of vitamin B12. The interesting thing is that you will at no point find this type of B12 in nature or in your body. Countless supplement companies throw around claims about how natural their supplements are, when in fact they are not natural at all. The word “natural” on a label essentially means nothing. Go ahead check your B12 containing supplements, let’s see what kind you are pumping into your body.

Most people are familiar with cyanide as a poisonous substance; in fact cyanide is thought to be a primary chemical considered by those with terrorist intentions. When a person ingests cyanocobalamin they must detox the cyanide portion via the liver with the help of your master antioxidant glutathione. Doesn’t this sound odd? You are putting something into your body that is supposed to help you, yet it causes more work and unneeded stress on your liver. Glutathione is already hard enough to come by, please do not waste it by forcing it to be use ridding your body of the byproducts of your supplements and energy drinks.

What kind of B12 should you be using?

Methylcobalamin (Methyl group + B12) the most active form of B12 seems to be better absorbed and retained in our tissues in higher amounts than the synthetic cyanocobalamin. Methylcobalamin is used much more efficiently by the liver, brain and nervous system. When thinking about supporting your nervous system, methylcobalamin should be your first stop. Methylcobalamin is also very important in the metabolism of the inflammatory protein homocysteine. If homocysteine is not kept in check diabetes and cardiovascular disease risk significantly increases. The methyl group that is attached to B12 is very important in the process of detoxification in the liver. Many people do not do a good job when it comes to methylation and this can lead to brain fog, fatigue, toxin build up, headaches, and decreased athletic performance. Methylcobalamin can help with this.

Adenosylcobalamin (dibencozide) is a naturally occurring form of vitamin B12 that also supports the nervous system and detoxification. But for athletes it has a particularly beneficial role in supporting branched chain amino acid (BCAA) metabolism and utilization as an energy source in the Kreb’s cycle. The Kreb’s cycle is a major player in ATP production, the currency by which all human movement is enabled.

In case you do get acute cyanide poisoning you would do well to consume 5-20grams of Hydroxocobalamin. Hydroxocobalamin is another naturally occurring type of vitamin B12 that also plays a large roll in energy production and detoxification. A report published in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine in 2007 showed a 71% patient survival rate after treatment with hydroxocobalamin after cyanide poisoning. It is now recommended as first line therapy for cyanide poisoning.

Elite Fuel contains both Methylcobalmin and Adenosylcobalmin. Elite Fuel is about enhancing performance in the midst of optimizing health for the long term. Accept no substitutes!
