What’s in JJ Virgin’s gym bag?

It’s no surprise that Bioenergy Ribose is a must-have in JJ Virgin’s gym bag. This fitness and nutrition expert, who is also a New York Times best-selling author, has embraced a natural approach to health throughout her high-profile career.

“Bioenergy Ribose helps muscles recover faster, so there’s less stiffness and soreness. When I work out, I bring my Virgin Diet All-in-One protein powder with a teaspoon of ribose in a blender bottle. I just add water for a great recovery shake.” She adds that if you are traveling, you can easily pre-sort this combo in little plastic bags.

Everyone from Dr. Phil to high-performance athletes and A-list celebrities have relied on JJ’s expertise. A board certified nutrition specialist, she is also board certified in holistic nutrition and a certified nutrition and fitness specialist.

The contents of JJ’s gym bag also include:
• Dehydrated or low-roasted almonds to stave off hunger. “If you don’t like almonds, you can substitute other nuts.”
• Rhodiola rosea: “This helps fight stress and fatigue. It’s a great workout booster!”
• A super-light pair of Nike or New Balance gym shoes.
• Lululemon workout pants. “I prefer lightweight clothing that doesn’t weigh me down as I’m working out.”

And JJ’s best training tip? “Consider burst training. Scheduling an hour for aerobics class in your already-loaded schedule only creates more stress for both your mind and body. According to Charles Poliquin, aerobic exercise raises cortisol (your stress hormone), accelerates aging and lowers testosterone. Burst training is the efficient, effective antidote to an hours-long gym routine that you can do in just minutes. I love to combine it with weight resistance for the two best kinds of exercise on the planet. You can get both with my 4 x 4 Workout, which fits into your busiest schedule: You can knock the whole thing out in just 15 minutes, three times a week.”

It was nonstop action during Engredea 2014, as health and nutrition industry experts from around the country converged at our booth to learn more about Bioenergy Ribose. Among the many highlights were the book signings by Jacob Teitelbaum, MD and the special appearance by Olympic medalist Susan Francia. We were also thrilled when alternative health expert Dr. Bryce Wylde interviewed Dr. Teitelbaum about the link between ribose, energy and fatigue.

Dr. Teitelbaum is a board certified internist and nationally known expert in the fields of chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, sleep and pain. Wylde, who is a frequent guest on The Dr. Oz Show, travels the world in search of beneficial natural ingredients so we were excited that he spent so much time at our booth. We’ll be sharing excerpts from this video interview here, as they become available.

Bioenergy Life Science will exhibit at several more events this year, including:

• BevNet Live: May 14-15, New York

• IFT: June 22-24, Louisiana

• SupplySide West: October 8-9, Nevada

• Hi Europe: December 2-4, The Netherlands

• BevNet Live: December 8-9, California

If you are an industry member, please stop by our booth during one or more of these events. And here’s the good news if you are a consumer: With all the excitement generated by Bioenergy Ribose, you’re likely to find it even more widely available – and in new lines of products – in the near future.

Bioenergy Ribose makes the Mount Kilimanjaro climb with Dr. Maroon

When renowned neurosurgeon and athlete Dr. Joseph Maroon began planning his climbing expedition of Mount Kilimanjaro, he was certain that his equipment must include Bioenergy Ribose. A sports fitness expert, Maroon knows that D-Ribose will help his muscles recover faster from the extreme exertion. It will also help to reduce stiffness and soreness. “D-Ribose will be in my water bottles,” he confirms.

Maroon is participating as the medical advisor for the first-ever climb of Mount Kilimanjaro by 11 amputees, organized by the Live Free Foundation. The climb will begin on February 20, and the group will attempt to reach the summit in five days. At 19,341 feet above sea level, Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest peak.

Bioenergy Ribose has been Maroon’s ‘secret weapon’ during past athletic feats including his participation in Iron Man Triathlons.

 

Bioenergy Ribose featured in Muscle & Fitness magazine article

When board-certified nutritionist and nationally known fitness expert Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., CNS, was asked to write an article advising readers how to get more energy, he made sure to include Bioenergy Ribose. In his article “Simple Steps to Power Up Your Energy Reserves”, Bowden explains that, “Ribose is not like rollover minutes. You can’t store it up. If you’re doing something strenuous that requires a lot of exertion, you’ll need a lot of it, maybe more than your body can churn out right away.”

Bowden, the best-selling author of 14 books on health, healing, food and longevity, added that, “Bioenergy Ribose is an ideal supplement to take. I play tennis 8-9 times a week, without a day to relax and re-boot. I need to keep my ribose storehouse constantly replenished, so it is an important part of my supplement program.”

Bowden’s helpful tips for getting all-day energy also included limiting processed carbs, which he calls energy drainers, and replacing those foods with more nutritious alternatives such as string cheese with an apple before a workout, and a whey protein shake for post-workout recovery.

He concluded: “When you sleep well, you make smarter nutritional decisions. If you also add D-Ribose into the mix, your tired muscles will recover faster so you can exercise even more. More exercise means sleeping better at night and having more energy throughout the next day. It’s that simple.”
