Working Out with AminoWise

Young Living’s AminoWise formula was developed as a triple target formula to help optimize your workouts. It uses three separate blends for one power-packed result. The AminoWise supplement was developed to fill a nutritional gap during and after exercise workouts to offer a muscle boost during recovery and re-hydrating with minerals that are certainly lost during the activity.

 

AminoWise-The-Oil-Dropper

3 in 1 Powerful Blend

 

Muscle Performance Blend

The muscle performance blend assists with muscle building and muscle repair during and after exercise or activity.

The Recovery Performance Blend

The recovery performance blend helps to decrease the fatiguing of muscles.

The Hydration Performance Blend

The hydration performance blend helps to replace necessary minerals that may have been lost during exercise and activity.

 

AminoWise Benefits

AminoWise has complex of antioxidants and amino acids (amino acids are organic compounds that combine to form proteins).  Amino acids and proteins are the building blocks of life. Together amino acids and antioxidants work synergystically to reduce fatigue while improving muscle recovery during and after exercise. This complex antioxidant formula with minerals helps to reduce the amount of lactic acid produced by the muscles during the strain of exercise.  (Lactic acid is formed when the body breaks down carbohydrates to use for energy when oxygen levels are low, like during times of intense exercise). The lactic acid is what causes muscle soreness. AminoWise was specially formulated to reduce muscle fatigue.

AminoWise helps to support muscles during and after exercise to enhance both recovery and performance.

The production of nitric oxide is supported which can improve vascular blood flow. It also contains branched chain amino acids, which may aid in the prevention of muscle catabolism from exercise. (Catabolism is the breakdown of complex molecules in living organisms to form simpler ones, together with the release of energy). AminoWise was formulated to support hydration by replenishing minerals lost during exercise such as magnesium,  calcium, sodium and potassium.

AminoWise is also a good source of Vitamin E and Zinc. It is formulated with the powerful antioxidant, wolfberry powder. It is flavored with lemon and lime essential oils. The best part is that it contains no preservatives, synthetic colors, dyes, or artificial flavorings. There is no added sugar or artificial sweeteners either.

 

How to Use AminoWise

Mix one (1) scoop in a shaker bottle with  8 fl. oz. water and consume during or after exercise. This supplement is a great addition to your healthy living routine.

Favorite Grief Supporting Essential Oils

Let’s discuss some essential oils to help support the grief process. Grief is something we all go through from time to time. Maybe you lost a loved one or broke up with a loved one are just are not getting along with someone you love and care for.  No matter the cause, grief is painful to go through.

Stages Of Grief

There are 5 documented stages of grief per the Kübler-Ross model, which is described as a series of emotions experienced by terminally ill patients prior to death, or people who have lost a loved one, wherein the five stages are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.  You can read more about Grief in the book by Kubler Ross entitled “Of Grief and Grieving“.

Let me briefly describe each stage for you and share some essential oils you may try during each stage. Note, all grief does not necessarily go through each of these stages.

Denial is the first stage of grief. This stage helps with survival of loss and sorrow. Things can becoming overwhelming during this time with meaning being lost to it all. Shock can help with survival during this time as this phase fades into the next stage these oils may help support.

Some great oils to use during the Denial phase are Geranium and Lavender.

Anger is the next stage where you begin to feel more compared to the denial stage where everything may feel numb. The emotions are strong as they kick in. This stage may make you question if God is really there, where was He? Under all this lies your deep rooted pain from the situation you are walking through.

Some oils that may help support the Anger stage and during times of anger include your favorite calming oils such as Peace & Calming, Stress Away and Roman Chamomile.

Bargaining sometimes occurs before a major loss where you may plead with God for what you wish to happen. Guilt sometimes is an emotion experiences during this phase as you go through the “If Only’s”…this stage can last months depending on the situation.

Some essential oils to use during this time may include Forgiveness, SARA, Hope, Peppermint.

Depression can be the next stage from deep sadness to clinical depression. This time can leave one feeling empty and loss. Some become withdrawn to other things going on around them in their “everyday life”. This stage is very normal especially after the loss of a loved one as we know that the stages of grief are all necessary for the healing process.

Some oils to help deep sadness and periods of depression may include Frankincense, Cypress and Joy

Acceptance is about dealing and accepting the reality of the situation. It doesn’t mean one is ever “ok” with what has happened but they have developed their own method of coping and is the beginnings of moving forward with their life. Things are often forever different and changed but one moves into a re-adjustment period and learning to live differently. In the case of losing a loved one, they will have “good days” and “bad days”. New connections can start to be made.

Some oils to help support during the Acceptance stage are: Present Time and Acceptance, Coriander and Orange.

Essential Oils to Support Sorrow and Grief

Did you know that you can use essential oils to naturally support your emotions? I listed some oils for the different grief stages but there are many oils to support sorrow and sometimes you need to experiment a bit to figure out which one you best respond to.

Bergamot is thought to help turn sorrow into Joy.  Some other singles you could also use include Lavender, Eucalyptus, Roman Chamomile, Juniper and White Angelica.

Young Living has many blends that would wonderful to support sorrow as well including Forgiveness, Gentle Baby, Present Time, Release, 3 Wise Men, Valor or even Joy.

How To Use EO’s for Emotions

You can use the oils in a variety of ways by diffusing in a cool mist diffuser or apply topically. I often like to apply emotional oils close to my heart or over my wrists. I often wear diffuser jewelry as well so that I can continue to smell the oils. You can even bring oils with you in the car or to the office with a portable diffuser.

Massage is a great way to use oils for emotional release. You can have someone do a raindrop on your with emotional oils or do a modified one on your self.

Essential Oils for Grief

The following are some wonderful blends you can use to support grief and sorrow. Try mixing 2-3 and use in your favorite application method.

Bergamot, Cypress, Myrrh, Roman Chamomile, Vetiver, Rosemary or any of the oils listed above.

Grief Diffuser Blend

Add 2 drops each to cool mist diffuser: Marjarom, Lemon, Clary Sage, Rosemary, and Bergamot.
