  • 80-year-old Man Walked Faster Than Everyone After Consuming This…

    Posted on by 360 Activ

    Back in 2013, 60-year-old Chris Koh was on an 11-day cruise with his wife where they both noticed an 80-year-old gentleman who seemed to walk faster and more comfortably than everyone else a lot younger than he was. Walking up to this strong gentleman proved to be essential in the following years of their lives and those of their friends and family.

    The old man testified to the lovely couple, revealing the secret to his bone and cartilage well-being, recommended to him only about 12 months prior to the cruise. He recommended CH-Alpha ACTIV to Chris Koh and his wife, changing their lives and the lives of those around them.

    A few years later, Chris Koh and his wife have both reported experiencing wonderfully strengthened joints and fewer joint conditions due to daily consumption of CH-ALPHA ACTIV supplements and have shared this wonderful secret with several friends enjoying similar benefits from its consumption.

    CH-ALPHA ACTIV is a supplement containing natural bioactive collagen peptides tested and proven to have positive stimulation effects in the synthesis of bone and new joint cartilage. This supplement was produced by the Collagen Multinational Giant in Germany known as "Gelita Health GmbH" who made use of a revolutionary idea based on targeting the supply of the small and easily absorbed collagen raw materials required in the manufacture of cartilage. Inspired by this idea, Gelita broke down the molecular weight of collagen from about 300 kilo Daltons to an impressive 3.3 kilo Daltons.

    These smaller bioactive collagen peptides found in CH-Alpha ACTIV tend to be more efficient in the stimulation of cartilage synthesis than traditionally used larger Glucosamine, MSM, and Chondroitin molecules.

    After consumption of CH-Alpha, the easily absorbed collagen peptides get right to work in very little time periods with the stimulation of chondrocytes and extra cellular matrix of cartilage.

    In most cases, regular consumption of CH-Alpha ACTIV provides the body with ideal supplies of collagen peptides that when combined with an exercise routine works wonders in the rejuvenation of joint cartilage making movement smoother and a lot more comfortable at every age.

    Many of the people facing joint issues due to aging and other natural deficiencies experience significant relief from pain and increased mobility after taking CH-Alpha ACTIV for only a few weeks. This revolutionary product not only fixes cartilage joints for comfortable mobility, it is also reported to have welcomed effects enhancing the immune system, thereby reducing the chances of suffering from other ailments.

    General feedback from consumers of CH-Alpha ACTIV is similar to those of the 80-year-old ‘’strong man’’ and Chris Koh’s family remarkably highlighting the absence of side effects.

    CH-Alpha ACTIV is sold in a convenient one-month supply of drinking ampoules.

          • Debunking myths: Is Liquid Extract better than Capsules or Tablets?

            Posted on by Bold Apps

            Medical studies have shown that liquid extracts have faster absorption rates; higher optimization rates and is more easily digestible.

            Liquids may have a big advantage over pills when it comes to swallowing. Most people, especially the elderly and young children, tend to have more difficulty swallowing some pills.

            Generally, supplements in liquid form are much more readily broken down and absorbed. Additionally, it has been shown that liquids are more completely and quickly absorbed than most capsules and pills.

            In fact, the Physician's Desk Reference states that 85-90% of nutrients in liquid supplements are absorbed in 22 to 30 seconds.

            Compare this to hours it takes for the nutrients in pills to be absorbed by the body. Moreover, it has been demonstrated that only 10%-20% of the nutrients in pills actually are absorbed. The National Advisory Board state that 100 mg consumed in tablet form translates into a concentration of only 8.3 mg or 8.3% in the blood.

            A pilot study evaluating the bioavailability and absorption rates of two vitamin B-12 preparations in normal human subjects, demonstrated that absorption rate was significantly increased when dosing was in a liquid rather than solid form.

            Liquid medicine is the preferred method of delivery in hospitals from emergency rooms to patient care because of the immediate benefits for the patient.

            While there is nothing wrong with a capsule or tablet, there are proven findings that show a liquid extract to be more powerful, beneficial and fast acting.

                - One of the primary benefits of using liquid herbal extracts is that they do not require digestion. You don't need to extract what is medicinal from the plant cellulose before it can be absorbed because it's already been done for you.
                  - The body does not need to break down a liquid extract, allowing more of the medicinal properties to be absorbed into the system. This makes liquid extract much more powerful than a capsule or tablet.
                    - When using capsules or tablets, the body must first extract or break down the medicinal properties of the herb to put them in liquid form in the stomach.
                      - Liquid extracts take 1-4 minutes to assimilate.
                        - Capsules or tablets (pills) can take from 20-30 minutes just to break down, before the body can even start to assimilate them.
                          Studies have shown that the body uses 98% of our liquid extracts.

                          The body only utilizes approximately 39-53% of capsules or tablets. Guess where the remainder ends up?

                          You guessed it! Flushed down the toilet along with your hard earned dollar.

                          • In order for any nutrient to reach the cells of the body, the nutrient must first be suspended in a solution.
                          • Or in other words it must be liquid.
                          • As a rule, the nearer a herbal preparation approaches the liquid form, the quicker and more completely it will assimilate and take effect in your body.

                          And let's face it, we are a society of instant gratification. Wouldn't you want your first choice to be the option to provide the most benefit in the least amount of time?

                          If you answered "of course!" then Liquid Extracts are the Best Choice!

                          Your body assimilates extracts fast

                          Extracts can be assimilated into the body in 1 to 4 minutes. Capsules or tablets (pills) can take from 20 to 30 minutes just to break down, before the body can even start to assimilate them.

                          Extracts are even more powerful!

                          It could take 20 capsules to equal a daily dose of 1 teaspoons of herbal extract.
