Protocol #2: Stamina, Fitness and Muscle Building

To achieve optimal fitness, stamina and muscle strength involves many factors including hormonal regulation, soft tissue repair and electrolyte balance.

Nascent Iodine

As a component of the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), iodine is essential to human life. Without sufficient iodine, your body is unable to synthesize these hormones, and because the thyroid hormones regulate metabolism in every cell of the body and play a role in virtually all physiological functions, an iodine deficiency can have a devastating impact on your health and well-being. 

Too little iodine may cause extreme tiredness, feeling cold, problems concentrating and hair loss.

LifeForce fx

Electrolytes truly are the “Spark of Life” that carries the electrical impulses from your brain to every part of your body to keep it in healthy balance. In addition to regulating nerve and muscle function, electrolytes are essential to maintain proper pH balance and hydration.  

LifeForce fx contains key electrolytes: potassium, magnesium, bicarbonate, sodium chloride, borax, MSM, organic lemon myrtle and organic lemon peel.

Not just extreme athletes need electrolytes; even yard work, hot weather or daily activity that creates sweating indicates a need for electrolyte replacement.

Sport drinks have become very popular over the years because they can provide an immediate replenishing of electrolytes and hydration that is lost during extreme exertion. These drinks however, are often loaded with sugar and synthetic ingredients. A drink loaded with toxic dyes, high salt and sugar content is not beneficial to your health.

Borax in LifeForce fx plays an important role in muscle building: A study in men ranging from 29 – 50yrs old showed that the level of free testosterone (the form that is most important) had risen by 28% and estrogen levels reduced by 39% after daily supplementation of about 10 mg of boron for one week. Testosterone is responsible for increased muscle mass, helps control weight and increases energy. As men age and testosterone drops, muscle wasting can occur. Borax can restore muscle mass in as little as one week!

Studies show that boron can decrease fat & increase muscle size and strength.

Some people, not all, will have this benefit from borax. Depending on if a person has low hormones or low blood boron. It stabilizes the body’s production of hormones (male & female) and causes the body's metabolism to burn fat faster.

Boron is called natural Viagra because it stimulates production of DHT, testosterone and normalizes estrogenic levels.


MSM is organic sulphur. The body uses 1/8 tsp of sulphur each day, just during resting time alone; while active bodies need much more. 

Sulphur is one of the most important nutrients required by our body for repair. It is present in the amino acids which create the basic building blocks of protein and collagen. Collagen is the building block for essential tissues: cartage, ligaments tendons, mucosa lining of the lungs, sinus and intestines.

MSM happens to be the best form of sulphur that can be consumed.

Daily Protocol

1. Nascent Iodine:  Take on an empty stomach 30 minutes before breakfast. Keep in mind that vitamin C will oxidise iodine rendering it less useful. Any form of vitamin C needs to be taken 90 minutes away from iodine.
Directions: 3 - 10 drops in 30 ml of water swirl in mouth then swallow, followed by more water.

2. Before your workout: 

LifeForce fx: add 2 scoops (1/2 tsp) into a glass of water or your favourite smoothie.

Consider adding extra Borax (1/8th to ¼ tsp) to the mix to increase muscle mass. Additional MSM (1/4 to ½ tsp) can also be added to the mixture if needing muscle and soft tissue repair.

3. After your workout:  We lose electrolytes when sweating. 

To replenish the electrolytes lost during your workout add 2 scoops (1/2 tsp) LifeForce fx into a glass of water or your favourite smoothie.
