It sometimes happens that we’re contacted by a client who is disappointed at not experiencing the results so many of our other clients report. Here are some things to consider.
BioSuperfood is not medicine
Like most people, we grew up thinking the way to address unwanted health conditions was by taking a quick-fix, over-the-counter remedy or prescription drug. Have a headache? Take two aspirin. Upset stomach? Pepto-Bismol or Tums will do the trick. Remember those Alka-Seltzer commercials? “Plop, plop. Fizz, fizz…” For the most part, these convenient methods do work: the aspirin does make the headache go away, and a spoonful of the pink stuff really does provide quick relief. For something more serious, say bronchitis for example, mom would bring us to the doctor and then to the pharmacy for a bottle of antibiotics. Within a week or so, all would be well. In general, we Americans are just used to expecting results quickly, and in today’s swipe-and-click world, we’re trained at nearly every moment to expect results right away.
But BioSuperfood is nothing like the medicines most Americans are used to taking, which provide only short-term relief of symptoms while masking the causes of those symptoms. Indeed, BioSuperfood is nothing like even the most nutritious whole food you can find at your trusted health food store or organic grocer. It’s a highly concentrated superfood that delivers more nutrients per gram than any other known whole food or superfood available today. This potent nutrition works in a very subtle way at the cellular level throughout your body to literally rebuild it “from the ground up” by triggering cellular awakening and metabolic healing. Many debilitating health conditions can take years to become noticeable; it can take just as long to reverse the damage.
Healing takes time
It’s a generally accepted rule of thumb that it takes at least 90 days for any permanent change in the body to take effect. It’s also commonly believed that for every year it takes to development a chronic condition, you can expect a month of healing. While it’s true that some do experience the remarkable benefits of consuming BioSuperfood within hours, it’s much more often the case that people notice gradual changes over weeks and months. As we’ve shared before, when we first tried BioSuperfood to address our young daughter’s viral infection, it took several weeks to notice changes and four months to achieve full healing. As for Owen, he already was in good health, so he really didn’t expect to notice much at all; he was satisfied just taking BioSuperfood as preventative health maintenance, knowing that its 5,000+ nutrients were working quietly yet powerfully throughout his entire body. Nevertheless, within just a few weeks, he noticed increased and sustained energy, deeper sleep, and other improvements in his overall health and well-being; the same can be said for our entire family. People suffering from long-standing acute or chronic conditions, however, shouldn’t expect overnight miracles: patience and faithfulness to the dosage regimen are the keys to success.
Work up to the therapeutic dosage
To really notice and experience results, it is critical to work up to the suggested therapeutic dosage of 6-12 capsules each day and to stick with it for at least 3-6 months. Why so long? Because most people on our modern diet are suffering from serious nutritional deficiencies. Thus, if you want your body to reach a state of optimum nutritional health, then any existing nutritional deficiencies need to be overcome first — and then the nutritional baseline maintained — for you to begin to see actual improvements.
Picture your body’s full nutritional potential as being like a 10 oz. cup. Now let’s say that your current nutritional level is at only 4 oz. To overcome your deficiencies, you’d have to “fill up” that “empty” 6 oz. But realize, too, that even if you start taking in 1 oz. of good nutrition each day and you’re still using up 1.1 oz. of nutrition, your nutritional cup eventually will become empty. So to reach better health, you’d have to really crank up your good nutritional intake; you’d notice improvements only when you got close to actualizing your body’s full nutritional potential: that is, to filling up your 10 oz. cup. Of course, everyone starts off at a different point and has a different size cup to fill, so it’s very difficult to say just how long it will take for any given person to experience results. What we can say is that every client of ours that has stuck to the dosage regimen has experienced positive results. (NB: we provide detailed usage guidelines on every product page on the site as well as in printed form with every initial order we ship.)
Spread your intake throughout the day
Research on and long experience with BioSuperfood has shown that better results are obtained by spreading out the total daily amount evenly in many smaller amounts rather than one to two daily amounts. In other words, while two 3-capsule amounts is better than one 6-capsule amount, three 2-capsule amounts is even better. Six 1-capsule amounts per day is best. We like to think of it as drip irrigation. Here’s a story from one of our clients that shows this principle at work.
One of our clients is a long-time sufferer of ME/CFS (Myalgic Encephalopathy/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). She had been taking BioSuperfood for a few months with no noticeable improvements. While she knew our recommendation was to spread out her intake throughout the day, her hectic lifestyle (sound familiar?) was making it difficult to do so; she had been opting to take six capsules with breakfast, to no avail. We spoke on the phone, and she agreed to take two capsules with breakfast, two with lunch, and two with dinner. A few weeks later she left the following review on our Facebook page: “I have lived with ME/CFS for 15 years and can honestly say that since starting BioSuperfood from Peak Health Supplements six months ago, I am feeling better with a general increase in wellness and energy.”
So if you’re wondering whether we’ve sold you a bottle of green, powdery snake oil, take heart: it’s likely that you’ve simply been expecting too much too soon and/or using BioSuperfood in such a way that your body can’t take full advantage of what it has to offer.
When in doubt:
- Work up to the suggested therapeutic dosage of 6-12 capsules each day, and stick with it for at least 3-6 months
- Spread your intake throughout the day: frequency of intakes trumps the size of the portion
