My buddy Mick and I share a lot of in common. For starters, we share the same birthday, same year. We both married beautiful, funny, smart women named Gail – also great friends with one another. Our daughters both attended the same college. And recently, we both surprised our families with puppies from the same litter. With so much in common, you can see why we’re friends.
On top of all that, Mick and I used to play softball together. We don’t play much anymore, but we do meet three days a week to go on for a morning walk and practice new jokes on one another.
Last fall, Mick started wanting to go for longer walks and, to be frank, I had a little trouble keeping up. It was like suddenly he had an extra store of energy. When he noticed that I was falling behind a little bit more than usual, he told me he was taking a supplement called …
And he recommended I start doing the same.
But, here’s where we differ. If someone gives Mick a suggestion or tells him to try something new, he’ll take a chance. He’ll just jump in and give most things a go. However, I prefer to do some research to find out what I’m getting myself into.
So, I looked up VitaPulse and was surprised to discover that not only was it helpful in terms of boosting energy, but it also –
- Assists in the reduction of inflammation
- Contains potent antioxidants to help fend off free radicals
- Protects your body from cellular damage
- Helps lower bad cholesterol levels
Sounded pretty good to me, but I wondered how one supplement could do all that. I had to find out just what was inside VitaPulse.
What’s inside that little capsule?
Turns out, VitaPulse isn’t crammed with useless chemicals like most supplements. In fact, there are only a few choice ingredients that make up what I started calling Mick’s Power Pellet – which, for the record, I take now too, if you hadn’t yet seen where this review was headed.
Two of the major components to VitaPulse are NAC (aka n-acetyl cysteine) and PQQ (aka pyrroloquinoline quinone). But what exactly are these ingredients and what makes them so great?
NAC is a special amino acid. And, amino acids are essential compounds considered to be the building blocks of proteins – something we need quite a bit of in our diet, right? But, there’s something different about NAC – it works like an antioxidant, by which I mean it helps protect your body from the destructive chain reaction put in play by free radicals before they can damage your cells.1
Let me break it down for you … free radicals are atoms that have lost their electrons. This often occurs when oxygen interacts with certain molecules. The missing electrons cause the free radicals to become highly reactive. And when they react with certain cell membranes, your cells can get compromised, or even die.
But, when you combat that process with antioxidants, or a compound like NAC, you help make sure your cells don’t suffer free radical damage or expire – a process known as “oxidative stress.”2 Now, oxidative stress occurs when we neglect to take proper care of ourselves by eating the wrong things, drinking alcohol in excess, and smoking cigarettes.
So, think of NAC like little doctors – helping to detoxify your body and erase damage while strengthening your cells. NAC’s sole purpose is to help keep your cells in tip-top shape.
Now, PQQ is a major player when it comes to mitochondrial health. It also does a great deal to help ensure proper cellular and metabolic function. PQQ also possesses a strong store of antioxidant properties.
And you might be wondering what mitochondrial health is to begin with. I was. Simply put, mitochondria are organelles – tiny parts of cells with highly specific jobs. The primary task of mitochondria is to produce around 90% of the energy your body needs in order to support organ function. Unfortunately, if mitochondria fail, then it’s impossible to generate the necessary amount of energy within the cell. This causes cell injury and, eventually, cell death. And the more this occurs throughout the body, whole organ systems can start to shut down.
PQQ works to stimulate cellular communication pathways and activate the regrowth of mitochondria in aging cells. You know the only real other way to do that? Strict diet and exercise – that’s it.
So, I was convinced enough to give it a shot – besides, I couldn’t get Mick to stop bugging me about it. (Again, last time that happened I ended up bringing a puppy home to my wife … but I love that little mutt).
The VitaPulse Experience
Well, I’ve been taking VitaPulse for over five months now, and I’ve got to say …
Not only am I able to keep up with Mick on our walks, we’ve started jogging. I feel refreshed. Frankly, I feel alive. Oh, and my cholesterol has improved! Also, now Gail’s started taking VitaPulse as well. She tells me at least once a day that her joints feel better than they have in years.
And, we’ve both lost a little bit of weight, too. Finally, it’s so easy to take – just one a day with your breakfast vitamins.
So, of course, whenever I see Mick now, he says, “You’re welcome.” And, it should annoy me, but I really do have him to thank for how great I feel. Now, I checked with my physician before I added VitaPulse to my daily routine, and you should do the same. Maybe my word doesn’t mean much to you, but if you take a look at some official VitaPulse reviews, you’ll see they say the same.
One of the things I loved about trying VitaPulse was the 90-day guarantee. If for whatever reason you find VitaPulse isn’t for you – just send Princeton Nutrients your bottle back, and they’ll take care of you. So, there’s really no reason not to try it out.
I did, and I’m so grateful.
