Internal Performance Factor Testing For Triathlon

Every 4 months or so, I drip saliva, bleed on paper and pee in a cup to find out what my essential fatty acids, amino acids, Vitamin D, minerals (like magnesium), hormones (like testosterone and cortisol), A1c (sugars/carb balance). Here’s a video of how it works, and if you keep reading this post, more information on how and why I do it.

The Bioletics Performance Performance Profile, from http://tinyurl.com/bioletic, is a simple way to get started with a profile like this. It allows you to to assess the key biological factors involved in performance and well-being, from the comfort of your own home. When you order the profile, a box arrives to your house that includes all materials and instructions for the following assessments:

Vitamin D
Mineral analysis and pH
Strength and recovery hormones
30 min consultation

To understand how the profile actually works, it is highly recommended that you listen to podcast episodes #53 and #62 at http://www.bengreenfieldfitness.com. In addition to the tests listed above, you can also choose to add a ferritin, magnesium, essential fatty acids and amino acid analysis to your performance package. When you order, use code “BENGRS” for Rock Star Triathlete Academy treatment from Bioletics.
