Beet Chews vs. Beet Juice. Do amino acids break a fast? And why your body is like a battery. (Ask Dr. Cohen #6)
Does Beet'Ums have the same amount of nitric oxide boosting nitrates as your premium organic beet juice powder? How much is required of either to consume to equate? Meaning: (example) 2 chews= same nitrates as 1/2 teaspoon powder or whatever that equation may be.
Thanks for your question.
It is a bit of apples and oranges based on formula and use.
PureClean Beet has more beets and a total higher nitrate content per 10 grams serving but BeetUms contain a higher potency nitrate beet powder plus synergistic activators of cocoa flavanols and Careflow mango. in addition, BeetUms stay in your mouth of a longer period of time allowing for great conversion of nitrates to nitrites and then to NO.
The other advantage of BeetUms is that they are quite tasty, you can take them with you on a hike, ride etc and they do NOT require water prior to a race if you are sensitive.
The upshot is I use Beet'ums prior and during most regular workouts and then PureClean Beet or actually mostly our Chocoberry Blast formula in my blender drinks for daily nitrate nutrition.
Does taking amino acids break a fast?
Yes. Now the question is are you concerned about breaking IF or longer fast. Protein triggers mTOR which you want to trigger muscle and repair but you also need to turn it down. Best case is to use FA regularly as part of a health metabolic lifestyle and then do periodic 3x years 5 day Fasting Mimic diets for autophagy. I use a homemade version of the LNutra Proton diet. If you like FA in the window and feel better with a smaller eating window then use FA after morning activity and eat dinner earlier with ag least 3 hours until sleep. This is ideally the best circadian window.
What is the MLP store and what is the RCP?
Think of your body in a way like a battery, when you got an old and unworking or poorly working battery. What happens? It gets rusted! That's like what happens in your body when you have too much iron. The copper in the RCP is like the battery cleaner and optimizer, it makes it fresh new and full of energy. And the magnesium is that extra juice that makes the battery stay healthy and strong. The RCP understand the relationships of these elements and seeks to optimize health and wellness from a lack of these nutrients many are not able to get in poor growing soil for food, poor diets, and poor lifestyle conditions.

The RCP The Root Cause Protocol (RCP) was developed by Morley Robbins, who transformed a career in the mainstream medical industry into a quest to learn the fundamental components of a healthy metabolism. The RCP is the culmination of his many years of research and is revolutionary in its approach to health from a truly holistic perspective, by looking at the whole organism and how all the elements work together, rather than limiting the focus to isolated nutrients or conditions. The RCP works by restoring balance to the key minerals – magnesium, copper and iron – that must work together in order to optimize energy and increase vitality. Restoring balance is a big undertaking, and the goal of the list below and the Handbook is to break it down into small pieces that can be easily integrated into a healthy lifestyle. Below you will find the full protocol, mapped out step by step so that you can see it for yourself. We recommend downloading the RCP handbook to use as you implement the protocol for yourself.
