      What is Peak Physical Performance?

      What is Peak Physical Performance?

      What is our potential?

      Over the past 3 decades we have seen exponential improvements in understanding what we are capable of as humans. Records have been broken and seem to be broken every year in the Olympics and professional sports – sometimes with controversy. Athletes are willing to go to incredible lengths to push their body’s to new heights and it has fuelled our industry to find better, safer and sport-approved methods of unlocking our maximum capabilities.

      Peak Physical Performance refers to an individual who has reached the maximum or near maximum capability of the human body when it comes to health and physical fitness. This can be very sport, skill or ability-specific, but it means much more than raw strength alone and is truly achieved in combination with mental toughness, intelligence, stamina, agility and speed.

      Achieving Peak Physical Performance for the average person who is not solely dedicating their life to this pursuit can be challenging, however, we can all learn from these elite athletes and their achievements in order to become stronger, faster and mentally tougher.

      This post is the first in our series of a topic we are exploring called “Biohacking,” and we will cover how we can all achieve our own Peak Physical Condition through:

      Diet

      To help your body deal with the large volume of training you’ll need to do to reach peak physical performance, your diet will need to be dialed in. There should be a dietary focus on foods high in protein and healthy fats, whereas processed, sugary, and junk foods should for the most part be avoided.

      Training

      Training will take center-stage in the journey towards peak human condition. Most of those in peak human condition have a background in sports for a reason: many sports such as basketball, sprinting, triathlon or soccer require vast amounts of cardio performance which can vary from low-to-medium intensity all the way up to high intensity.

      Recovery

      Training hard each week will take its toll on the body, which is why most high-level athletes will regularly get remedial massages, stretch or follow a yoga routine.

      Mental Toughness

      The running theme of this article is that peak physical performance isn’t built on brawn alone. The mind can both promote or limit your performance depending on your mindset.

       

      Today, we want to help you biohack your mental toughness by thinking about the following key points and supplements to support you:

      • Being confident – compete with yourself. This means believing in yourself and your goals, and consistently trying to be better than the person you were yesterday. This being said, confidence means accepting that growth doesn’t always happen exponentially- setbacks may occur but remain confident and collective enough to not doubt yourself or naysayers.
      • Concentrating – being in the now makes a huge difference in being able to get the most out of your training time. Not only because you avoid wasting time, but you also focus on your form, movements and rhythm more acutely. This will help you avoid injury, but also focus on training more efficiently.
      • Having goals in mind – use visualization techniques, and implement goal planning from larger to smaller day to day goals
      • Discipline and perseverance – working out even when you don’t want to or when you don’t see results

      We want nothing but continuous gains and progress for you, which is why we created Focus Freak. Everyone from gamers to bodybuilders understands that having mental clarity and mental focus helps boost your physical performance dramatically. This clean and science-backed supplement is guaranteed to give you more mental energy and focus, while boosting your mood and levels of clarity.

      PHARMAFREAK® Quality Control

      PHARMAFREAK® Quality Control

      What is GMP?

      Good manufacturing practice (GMP) is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product. The main risks are: unexpected contamination of products-causing damage to health or even death; incorrect labels on containers, which could mean that patients receive the wrong medicine; insufficient or too much active ingredient which results in ineffective treatment or adverse effects. GMP covers all aspects of production; from the starting materials, premises and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. Detailed, written procedures are essential for each process that could affect the quality of the finished product. There must be systems to provide documented proof that correct procedures are consistently followed at each step in the manufacturing process – every time a product is made. The World Health Organization (WHO) has established detailed guidelines for good manufacturing practice. Many countries have formulated their own requirements for GMP based on WHO GMP. Others have harmonized their requirements, for example in the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN), in the European Union and through the Pharmaceutical Inspection Convention.

       

      Why is GMP important?

      Poor quality natural health products and supplements are not only a health hazard, but a waste of money for both governments and individual consumers. This is why PHARMAFREAK goes over the top with safety, cleanliness and production quality standards, to ensure that you can trust every single product we deliver.

       

      Poor quality medicines can damage health

      A poor quality medicine may contain toxic substances that have been unintentionally added.  A medicine that contains little or none of the claimed ingredient will not have the intended therapeutic effect.

       

      GMP helped PHARMAFREAK become a global leader in the industry 

      Most countries will only accept import and sale of medicines that have been manufactured to internationally recognized GMP. Governments seeking to promote their countries’ export of pharmaceuticals can do so by making GMP mandatory for all pharmaceutical production and by training their inspectors in GMP requirements.

       

      Is GMP necessary if there is a quality control laboratory? 

      Yes. Good quality must be built in during the manufacturing process; it cannot be tested into the product afterwards. GMP prevents errors that cannot be eliminated through quality control of the finished product. Without GMP it is impossible to be sure that every unit of a medicine is of the same quality as the units of medicine tested in the laboratory.  

       

      Why don’t all brands implement GMP? 

      Making poor quality products is cheaper and faster. Many brands and products in the natural health and supplement space are only around for a short time to make quick profits.  

      In the long run, it is more expensive finding mistakes after they have been made than preventing them in the first place. GMP is designed to ensure that mistakes do not occur. Implementation of GMP is an investment in good quality medicines. This will improve the health of the individual patient and the community, as well as benefiting the pharmaceutical industry and health professionals. Making and distributing poor quality medicines leads to loss of credibility for everyone: both public and private health care and the manufacturer.  

       

      PHARMAFREAK works to strengthen GMP 

      Our manufacturing and research and development teams are constantly working to improve the global GMP standards, crack down on brands and facilities that put our industry and you in danger and doing what we can to continually increase the high standards that we operate within to produce the world’s strongest supplements and natural health products.

      ORDER NOW

       

      HOW IT WORKS:

      TEST FREAK ® 2.0 has everything you know and love from the original TEST FREAK :

      FENUGREEK

      • Targets the hypothalamus and pituitary to stimulate the release of luteinizing hormone (LH) and testosterone.

      TRIBULUS

      • This works with fenugreek and also targets the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular (HPT) axis to induce natural testosterone secretion.

      SAW PALMETTO

      • This ingredient helps decrease dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which results in increased
        testosterone.

      STINGING NETTLE

      • It increases the release rate of “free” testosterone from its binding hormone, sex-
        hormone-binding-globulin (SHBG).

      ESTROGEN BLOCKERS

      • Resveratrol, hesperidin and apigenin are three of the most potent natural anti-aromatase ingredients available! Research shows that these ingredients have potent anti-aromatase properties and prevent the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. They even prevent aromatase activity at the gene level. (Aromatase is the enzyme responsible for converting testosterone to estrogen.)

      ZMA COMPLEX

      • Zinc is an essential mineral that plays a critical role in testosterone production. Research shows that the combination of zinc, magnesium and vitamin B6 can help athletes maintain higher testosterone and growth hormone levels during intense training periods.

       

      In addition these ingredients you love, we’ve added 7 new key ingredients to add to this supplement’s potency:  

      ASTRALAGUS 

      • This adaptogen increases the number of Leydig cells- the cells in the testes that produce testosterone. 

      ALOE VERA LEAF GEL 

      • Aloe increases stem cells in the reproductive system and stimulates the activity of Leydig cells. 

      LJ100 TONGKAT ALI

      • LJ100 works via a unique mechanism of action to increase the release rate of “free” testosterone from its binding hormone- sex-hormone-binding-globulin (SHBG). It also blocks excessive cortisol. 

      N-ACETYL-CYSTEINE (NAC) 

      • NAC has an antioxidant effect in the reproductive/hormonal system (testes) when combined with selenium. 

      SELENIUM 

      • Selenium has an antioxidant effect in the reproductive/hormonal system (testes) when combined with NAC. 

      ROCKET/ARUGULA  

      • It has a stimulatory effect in the growth and proliferation process in the testes, as well as an ability to increase the activity of spermatogenic cells. 

      BROMELAIN 

      • Through an anti-inflammatory mechanism, bromelain is shown to maintain testosterone levels in athletes.

      5 Apps To Help You Biohack

      5 Apps To Help You Biohack

      In our previous peak physical performance blogs we looked at how biohacking techniques centred around mental toughness and training schedules can help you achieve your Peak Physical Performance. Peak Physical Performance is when an individual reaches the maximum or near maximum capability of the human body, in terms of health and physical fitness. Now that you’re experts on planning and executing efficient training schedules, as well as maintaining optimistic and resilient mindsets, we’re going to talk about apps you can use to biohack your peak physical performance.

      Biohacking Apps

      There are so many great apps out there which can help you track, monitor and stay accountable in virtually all areas of your life. It is a convenient and easy way to use your phone to help you track your progress, which in turn helps you see if you’re actually biohacking your way to your best self. Here, we’re going to give you 5 apps that we find helpful for biohacking our peak physical performance.

      Fitbod:

      Sometimes it is difficult to know what your capabilities are. Maybe you’re not challenging yourself enough at the gym, or maybe you are taking it too far. Using advanced machine learning, this app reflects your physical capability. Based on this personalized information, it designs weight lighting workouts catered towards your goals as well as your current physical capacity. This app is a must for anyone looking to biohack their strength and improve their weight lighting!

      Edo:

      Getting the right amount of specific nutrients is important when it comes to biohacking your health and physique! Processed and sugary foods are not beneficial for your health and should not be consumed often. This being said, how do you know what you’re eating? It’s all too easy to be confused by lengthy scientific ingredient names, which makes you unsure as to what you’re really getting out of eating a certain food. Edo allows you to scan food at supermarkets and gives you a breakdown of what the ingredients really mean. It uses this information to provide you with an overview of whether the product is good or bad, and what the main benefits or negatives of consuming it are.

      Inner balance: 

      Inner Balance is an integrative app which serves as a scientifically validated stress management program. It collects data on your heart rate and stress levels, to guide you and measure your progress as you reduce stress. The app acts as a coach to guide you through stress reduction methods, which work to boost your mental clarity, reduce your fatigue and exhaustion, and build resilience from stress. All these benefits come together to help biohack your fitness by improving coordination and reaction times.  

      My Plate Calorie Counter:  

      Biohacking your diet is essential when it comes to getting the health and fitness results that you’re working for. You could be eating food that is considered healthy (the Edo app above can help you with this) but it might be lacking the nutrients that you need for your specific goals. For instance, when looking to build muscle mass, eating enough protein, and balancing you macros and micros is crucial. This app tracks exactly how much you’re eating and of which specific food group, which allows you to manipulate your diet so you can really get the most out of all the hard work you do at the gym!

      Sleep Cycle: 

      As you know, it is important to get enough sleep. During sleep, your body is finally getting the chance to recover and repair. Professor Michael Colgan says, “even if your training and nutrition program came straight for the mouth of God almighty, without adequate rest your body will fail to adapt,” so all in all sleep is pretty important 

      The sleep cycle app allows you to track your sleep patterns. It is important to understand your sleep patterns as not all types of sleep are equal! For instance, you may sleep 9 hours but end up waking up feeling really tired because you were in a light sleep pattern for the majority of it. Biohacking your sleep can allow you to get the most out of your sleep and be efficient.  

       

      We want you to optimize muscle growth and recovery in order to reach your peak physical performance! This is why we’ve created SPORT COLLAGEN– the most advanced collagen supplement. It contains 3 different types of collagen, BCAAs and key support ingredients vitamin C, Zinc and l-tryptophan. It works to support muscle growth, regeneration, recovery, digestive health and hair, skin and nail health.  

      Ketones – The Most Natural Keto Fat Burner

      WHY IT’S SO GOOD: 

      SD Pharmaceuticals® KETONES is sodium-free!

      HOW IT WORKS:

      ENHANCES A KETOGENIC DIET  

      BHB ketones help you get into ketosis and put your body into a fat-burning state. You can use exogenous BHB ketones to get your body into ketosis quicker than it would on its own from following a low-carb diet. 

       

      KETONES FOR WEIGHT LOSS 

       Using an exogenous ketone supplement after a period of eating carbohydrates will tell your body that you want to be using ketones for energy instead of those carbs. Instead of eating very low carbs for days, you can just take a serving of exogenous ketones and get back into ketosis almost right away! 

       

      KETONES FOR PERFORMANCE & FUNCTION 

      In addition to its fat-loss benefits, a BHB ketone supplement delivers ready-to-use ketone fuel, providing you with greater performance, energy and focus! You don’t even have to be in a ketogenic state or following a ketogenic diet to reap the performance-enhancing benefits of a BHB ketone supplement. BHB ketones are truly the ultimate non-carbohydrate energy source! 

       

      SD Pharmaceuticals® KETONES ARE THE MOST NATURAL KETO FAT BURNER AND PERFORMANCE AND RECOVERY SUPPLEMENT.
