TheTen Best Supplements for 2010 - No 8 is running !!!

Common colds have to be the most common ailment a person can experience in a year. I keep a scribble in my diary on the number of colds I get in a year. For 2010 I am already down by one at the beginning of the new year.

So how do I shorten a COLD? How do I prevent it? Most people will tell you Ginger, Pepper, Honey, Garlic, tumeric, saffron etc etc....People who have no knowledge of medicine or the human body will suddenly become Doctors on this subject. Biochemically I am sure that its the IMMUNE system that keeps disease at bay.

The Medical Secret that I discovered when you train athletes is that your Muscles protect you against a cold. Have you ever noticed that when you get that cold, your body aches or rather your muscle ache. Whenever you are the most overworked you catch a cold or when you have not eaten well or overdone it. Well its all in the muscle.

You see the Muscle is made up of 60% glutamine. GLUTAMINE is an amino acid that preserves muscle. GLUTAMINE is also the Amino acid that fuels the development of the immune system. Getting CONFUSED!!! Well GLUTAMINE has two masters, Muscle and the Immune system. In good times, the GLUTAMINE is able to serve two masters, whilst in times of stress and low energy, huge work loads or environmental exposure, Glutamine can only serve one master.......THE MUSCLE> So guess who feels left out...YUP Your IMMUNE SYSTEM.....its now a teenager throwing its tantrum and says " I ain't lifting a finger to help you".

THE VIRUS which is all pervasive and Ubiquitous....meaning all over the bloody place 24/7 ...365 days of the year come rain or sunshine is just waiting for this Tantrum by your immune system.

THE COLD VIRUS IS NOW saying " I am going to a party"...and begins its invasion

I know its gets confusing, but what you really need to take away from this is that if you have a cold, Feed your Muscles and your immune system with Glutamine.

SO my NO 8 Supplement of the year is PURE FORM GLUTAMINE> Just 5 gms in a glass of juice every 4-6 hours when you have a cold and BAMMMM the next day you are so much better. Yes I do advise a COLD TABLET to push the symptoms of Suffering into the background.

Your GRANNY said have hot chicken SOUP....well the Protein in the chicken will form an AMINO ACID broth that fuels your immune system. Voila granny new science.

Now if you add glutamine in addition to all of your remedies listed above, no cold virus has a chance in hell to turn that watery nose into a green phlem sticky uncomfortable mass in your nose.



500 mg of VIT C Celine 3 times a day
1 ZEVIT ( Zinc Supplement) 1 tab at Breakfast
Honey and Ginger powder 1 tbspoon thrice a day
5gms Glutamine with Juice Every 4-6 hours
I D cold Tablet 1 every 12 hrs ( not before sleep)
Steam Inhalation if your already succumbed to the VIRUS ATTACK
3 Tablets of Triple Guard Echinacea from AMWAY or SEPTILIN from Himalaya.

OH! Heads up, IF YOU FEEL THE COLD COMING ON>>>> and you act almost immediately( withing the hour of the first sniffle or dripping nose) with the above, MONEY BACK GUARANTEE if it fails. ( like anybody pays me for this advice)

I am smiling right now, cause the guy next to me on the train is sniffling!!!

May the Qua Be with you.

Prasanta- PARAOLYMPIC Swimmer and Medal winner for India

My greatest Joy  is when I start couseling athletes . Prasanta is an athlete who swims as a handicap athlete and I have never once seen him in a dejected mode. He has always been a spirited individual with never die attitude and the guts to chase a dream. He is my Corporate social responsisbilites and I get to work everyday because of athletes like him. It make me want to work harder and make them win.

I am using BODYFUELZ in his programme and sponsoring his Performance Nutrition Products. Should you wish to support this athletle please do so by getting in touch with us.

WHY GREEN TEA is the best Value for Money RETURNS to your health.

After Bio-energised water, I got a friend asking me, well Ryan how much should one spend on Dietary supplements. Now this got me thinking. How much should one really spend on one's self. The best judge of this should be you. My equation is based on the fact that I know these are vital to living well or not surviving. So in essence how much would you be willing to pay for Luxury? Do you buy the higher end version of a car? Do you choose the best seats at a Movie? DO you buy the best quality Flour? Is your Child going to the best school or the average one? YOU DECIDE what your health is worth. If you can spend 2000Rs a month on a Mobile Bill, something that did not exist ten years ago of if you buy that PUMA shoe at 8999/- when you bought Power in 1996, then you know you are living well. So why not the same for a supplementation programe.

Well for Omega 3 so far, I have a fan in a follower, who said " My hair has stopped falling". One of the million benefits of this list of top 10 supplements.

Well for NUMBER 7. It's GREEN TEA. Yes I did get bashed up for all the expensive ones so Seven is something all you followers need to have in your home or on your office desk.

How to get it done? Just soak a few leaves or a teabag in hot water ( Boiled and the flame turned off) simmer for 30 secs and then remove the green tea leaves/tea bag.

The benefits

Currently, scientific testing has revealed the following:

- reduction in heart disease.
- reduction in bad cholesterol.
- increase in metabolic rate / fat oxidization.
- prevention of the death of brain cells – meaning less chance of Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s diseases.
- lower incidence of cancers.
- helps in weight loss.

As you can see – the potential health benefits from just drinking a cup of green tea can be tremendous. However, these benefits are not felt at their maximum level, until you begin to consume large amounts of green tea every day. For an adult, this would amount to around 8 cups per day.

WOW ...8 cups is lot of trips to the loo!!!

To get around this, health food companies are now producing supplements with green tea as the active ingredient. By providing green tea in supplement form, a person is able to reduce the need for multiple cups of green tea every day, whilst maximizing their intake of green tea extract.

Generally, one green tea supplements tablets or serving will give you around about 8 cups worth of the vital polyphenols which are contained in green tea. Don’t know what a polyphenol is? Let’s get into the science of green tea now.

The Science of Green Tea.

As we previously said, many people know that green tea is good for you, but they don’t know how it actually works or provides the health benefits that it does. Therefore, a scientific breakdown of green tea is necessary, so that you can fully understand the way in which green tea interacts with the body.

The most important component of green tea is something called a polyphenol – which is a substance also known as a catechin. It is generally understood that the consumption of polyphenols are able to improve your health in numerous ways such as with the factors listed above.

The way that green tea acts with the cells on a biological level is complex. All you need to know is that the polyphenols act to strengthen immune and body cells, whilst weakening intruder cells and cancerous / tumor cells. The effectiveness will be clear. It means that the body is now stronger and more able to fight off the diseases caused by the opposite.

Green tea extracts are available in most high end shops today that sell supplements. Go out and buy one. Whenver you feel it pop a tab. Or like me get your Office boy to brew you one at 11 am and then another at 4 pm. 8 is wonderful, but 2 is better than none.

May the QUA be with you.
