"...Contaminated by Heavy Metals and Mold Toxins..."

There is a very sad situation unfolding now with pet food that has killed and injured many animals. Pets are like children to us, and they are deeply loved by their owners. My heart goes out to those affected.

While the exact cause of all this is still unknown, an article from Associated Press contains a paragraph that should shake you up:

"The Food and Drug Administration has said the investigation was focusing on wheat gluten in the food. Wheat gluten itself would not cause kidney failure, but the common ingredient could have been contaminated by heavy metals or mold toxins, the FDA said."

The above comment in red is a prime example why I have all Relentless Improvement brand products tested for metals, molds, yeasts and bacterial contamination by an FDA licensed analytical laboratory. I don't care about being the cheapest, I do care about high-quality vitamins and supplements.

This is a fact: Independent, 3rd party testing (NOT manufacturers CoA's) is your only assurance of label claims, and lack of contamination.

The next time you see a supplier claiming "Pharmaceutical Grade" on their labels or advertising, demand to see an independent Certificate of Analysis for that product! And demand that the lot number of the product to be shipped to you match's the lot number on the CoA.

Think about this the next time you see a few dollars difference in price between Relentless Improvement and one of the other sites. Think about this the next time you choose to save a few bucks by buying loose powders. Why do you supplement anyhow? Presumably to gain a benefit, not to risk your health...

Ortho-Bone, Strontium, K2 Menetetrenone- The Best Bone Support Money Can Buy

Folks all the time tell me how happy they are after using Ortho-Bone, Strontium Citrate and K2 Menetetrenone and then going to have a bone density test. Results of course take time, but the proof is in the testing.

Relentless Improvement is your bone health specialist, and the "three-legged" stool approach as noted above is a winning combination.

Compare bone-building supplements now available to those drugs (you know which ones I am talking about) that only slow bone loss and are riddled with nasty side effects.

Ortho-Bone is currently on special pricing, with very deep quantity discounts for those wishing to invest in several months supply.

Tuesday, March 20, 2007 Is New And Improved

Check it out- vitamins and nutritional supplements
Why are other sites cluttered and messy? Why all the links you don't care about?

And why do some sites look like somebody's hobby? Give me a break!

What would a reasonable person infer from a website's appearance about the quality of the products and service it offers (yes, it is a very reasonble inference).

Ecommerce is no joke and no game. Your financial security, your health and peace of mind are at stake. When you see a product being marketed for an unusually low price, you might consider what the retailer is skimping on to sell it so cheap (site security and independent testing).

Always remember: "The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price has been forgotten".

Aren't you worth the very best?

Carnitine, CoQ10 and Lipoic Acid? PUBMED = A Special Synergy

PUBMED has some very interesting research, this is new and not some dusty old rehash:

Beneficial effects of creatine, CoQ10, and lipoic acid in mitochondrial disorders.

"results suggest that combination therapies targeting multiple final common pathways of mitochondrial dysfunction favorably influence surrogate markers of cellular energy dysfunction."

...Complementary and alternative medicine practice and research in type 2 diabetes."Nutrient and botanic medicines with clinical trial research support include coenzyme Q10, carnitine, alpha-lipoic acid..."

Pre-operative preparation for cardiac surgery...
"Sixteen cardiac surgery patients received metabolic therapy consisting of the antioxidants coenzyme Q(10) (CoQ(10)) (300 mg) and alpha-lipoic acid (300 mg), combined with magnesium orotate (1200 mg), and omega-3 fatty acids (3g) given daily for a mean 36+/-7 days up until the day of operation."

"preliminary results suggest that a program of combined metabolic, physical and mental preparation before cardiac surgery is safe, feasible and may improve quality of life, lower systolic blood pressure, reduce levels of oxidative stress and thus has the potential to enhance post-operative recovery."

Recent changes in concepts of antioxidant treatment..."Antioxidant supply from natural sources does not seem to be sufficient for an adequate preventive effect. The author recommends such a combination in which physiological amounts of vitamins C, D, K and B-complex, N-acetylcysteine, vitamin E of natural origin might be complemented by allopurinol, co-enzyme Q-10 and alpha-lipoic acid."

Effects of dietary supplements on the space radiation-induced reduction in total antioxidant status in CBA mice..."...a combination of N-acetyl cysteine, sodium ascorbate, co-enzyme Q10 (CoQ10), alpha-lipoic acid, L-SeM and vitamin E succinate could partially or completely prevent the reduction in the plasma level of TAS in CBA mice exposed to proton or HZE-particle radiation."

The research has some common threads, including NAC, CoQ10, Lipoic Acid and Carnitine. The results are compelling. Thanks to some very innovative companies, you have access to the highest grade materials available in the world. Now it is up to you to take action and invest in your future.

I know I have.

Relentless Improvement for Antioxidants

PS I have created a link to this blog post on the R-Lipoic Acid thread on the new Relentless Improvement Forums.

RALA-Gel , So Long Old Friend

RALA-GEL at first 100% RLA, evolved to a more potent 60/40 RLA/DHLA combo, and has now been totally sold out and is gone forever. Congrats to those of you who snapped up the last of the specially sale priced (and fully potent and effective!) product, you got a great deal.

As a manufacturer, GeroNova had to take a hard look at their ever expanding product line and review each product's place in the big-picture. Bottom line- no sense in different products only 50mg apart.

But as the old goes out, the new comes in: R-PLUS CoQ10, RLA w/Curcumin and RLA with NAC.

Here is the full Geronova r-lipoic acid line.

-Plus w/ CoQ10, How cool is this?

I just posted this on the new Relentless Improvement forums:

Brand spanking new from Geronova:


75 mg of RLA, 75 mg of DHLA and 50 mg of of Tishcon's highly bio-available yeast fermented CoQ10. (Correction- Kaneka's CoQ10 derived by fermentation, manufactured for Geronova by Tishcon- Pete)

You know, Geronova may well be the worlds most innovative manufacturer and formulator today. Who else is is coming up with these novel and logical formulations?

And you are the one to benefit.

Be the first on your block to order a bottle today. In stock now.

WARNING- Businesses Claiming Endorsement By Me

This is a warning to all of my readers- if you find any business posting on the internet, or otherwise claiming an endorsement of their company attributed to Pete Hitesman (me) or "Psychenaut" (the screen name I post under at, or Relentless Improvement, it is false and used without my permission.

Let me be crystal clear - I do not support, endorse or recommend any businesses other than those you read here in my blog. If you find a testamonial attributed to me on any website, or in any correspondence, it is false!

Over the years I have offered for sale products from various suppliers. Some work out, others don't.

The fact that at one time I carried a company's products is in no way indicative of my current opinion of doing business with that company.

If you find any business associating the fact I once carried their product as a current endorsement of them, then consider that their invitation for you to contact me and ask my opinion of that business now.

Do not associate me with your products without my permission.

A favorable endorsement would be the fact your products are currently carried by Relentless Improvement!

Relentless Improvement has firmly established itself as the industry gold-standard with documented product quality, superb selection, fast, world-wide shipping and a professional ecommerce platform. It is no surprise other businesses would try to associate themselves with us.

Essential Mix Multi-Vitamin/Mineral Powder In Stock

Essential Mix has been tough to get, but we have it.

Regular AOR Essential Mix

AOR Essential Mix with no sucrose (unsweetened)

Sale pricing on both, be sure to view the quantity discounts.

"A Well-formulated Multi-Vitamin Powder

A solid multivitamin is the keystone of a program of nutritional supplementation for optimal nutrition. But many people find it hard to swallow pills, or prefer to take their nutrients in a morning nutrition shake. Unfortunately, most liquid multivitamins are so weak or incomplete as to make no meaningful contribution to your diet, while others are unstable, unpalatable, or high in sugar. And most multivitamin formulas – pill or powder – continue to be unbalanced, poorly-designed, and out of step with the latest research.

A well-formulated multi-vitamin powder will provide you with all the essential vitamins and minerals, in balanced doses and optimal forms, in an easy-to-take powder."

Says AOR. I totally agree.

As with all of our products, Essential Mix is kept in a small warehouse under carefully climate controlled conditions until delivery to you. Our inventory turns over fast and your supplements are always fresh and potent.

Shouldn't quality matter more than size? I think so!

Thanks for your trust and support.
