On your UNBEETABREW coffee product, do you still get the benefits and antioxidants of a regular cup of coffee in it? Secondly, would you consider it healthier than my regular cup of coffee to replace it with every morning to start my day and does it break my fast?
Yes it contains a full serving of organic freeze dried granules plus mushroom blend plus beet powder that act synergistically. It was developed based on what my Ukrainian grandmothers family ate before working in the fields: Borscht, Sautéed mushrooms, Black Coffee.
Yes, UNBEETABREW is more robust and as I mentioned and synergistic. You should replace your regular coffee with UNBEETABREW.
Can I use fundaminos in the AM after it without breaking my fast?
Technically using amino acids would provide nutrients to stop autophagy but wouldn't have much of a glucose effect so you would still stay in a fat burning metabolic state. We do NOT see glucose levels rise after use with Supersapiens CGM. I use FUNDAMINOS after workouts myself in the late afternoon or 45 minutes prior to dinner for any additional 40g equivalent of protein.
So if I work out in the AM, do you need the coffee and fundaminos after? If I purchase your fundaminos, should I buy the PURECLAEN PROTEIN protein or not needed?
FUNDAMINOS can be used after workouts, 2 scoops. UNBEETABEW is best used 45 minutes before workouts, max 2 times per day.
While FUNDAMINOS is 99% protein, PURECLEAN PROTEIN is a more complete source of protein nutrition as it offers the amino acids including vitamins, minerals, and collagen. It is not as quickly absorbed than FUNDAMINOS but you need to consume compete sources of protein. So, yes, I recommend supplementing with both FUNDAMINOS and PURECLEAN PROTEIN. For example, use PURECLEAN PROTEIN in a protein shake in the morning and FUNDAMINOS post-workout. With both these products in use during your day, you will also significantly lower your normal dietary need for protein from other sources as both these products are very high in protein and highly absorbed.
I like the chocoberry as a morning drink. Is it better before or after breakfast?
You can take this anytime. I always have it mixed with PURECLEAN PROTEIN and a few other ingredients as my morning meal!
The fundaminos I never know when to take - before bed? before or after physical activity? morning also? with or without food? with other drinks or drink ingredients? So far, I have been taking it after workout, and sometimes after dinner before sleep. And sometimes as a meal replacement or between meals - but it does not seem to work well like that.
FUNDAMINOS is best always without food to insure absorption. Some carbs are OK, I put methylene blue in my drink and have after working out or late afternoon to get in additional amino acids. If you are trying to keep a window without eating then avoid morning or bedtime. But if just trying to get enough amino acids (protein) then anytime is fine but away from fat and protein.
Thepureclean powderI have 2 of them and they are going un-used because I prefer the chocoberry and it has the beet already in it. When i re-order like i just did - i re-order the chocoberry rather than the pureclean powder by itself. But I want to use them so they don't go to waste. Should I have 1 serving of chocoberry, and 1 of pureclean powder per day or is that too much? Should i just alternate each day between them?
Yes I prefer CHOCOBERRY BLAST as well. PURECLEAN BEET has more nitrates. Feel free to add 1/2 scoop of PURECLEAN BEET with it or save PURECLEAN BEET prior to physical activity (30 minutes) for a performance boost.
Also, should I cycle on and off these products? Or, be concerned with too much NO3 or oxalates from the beet powder? Or is that not an issue with these products? I am just using the recommended serving sizes as noted on the labels.
