About the company

In 2004, a group of health scientists found a way to deliver healthy, sustained energy to chemotherapy patients.

They developed and patented a powerful blend of antioxidants and essential vitamins that optimizes the body’s natural energy production at the cellular level. Because antioxidant molecules neutralize or "scavenge" free radicals to prevent and slow cell damage in the body, they called the formula FRS after these Free Radical Scavengers.

Studies have since shown that the patented FRS® Healthy Energy® formula works with the body to naturally enhance fitness performance, improve cognitive function and support the immune system. At the core of the patented FRS formula is one of the world’s most powerful antioxidants, quercetin (pronounced: kwur-si-tin) found in foods such as blueberries, apples and red grapes. The FRS formula uses the purest form of quercetin (QU995™). Green tea extract, another important antioxidant, works in synergy with quercetin and seven essential vitamins to maximize absorption and effectiveness.

Sports Spotlight: Gatorade Carb Energy Drink

Endurance Carb Energy Drink is a liquid blend of carbs and B-vitamins that’s formulated to fuel muscles so you’re ready to take down the miles ahead. Drink within an hour of training or racing.

Endurance training and racing forces the body to burn through large amounts of carbohydrate. When levels drop low enough, your muscles rely on fat as an energy source. Because it takes more time to break down fat, muscles won't be able to perform at the same intensity, and your pace will eventually slow down.

 

 

About the company: In early summer of 1965, a University of Florida assistant coach sat down with a team of university physicians and asked them to determine why so many of his players were being affected by heat and heat related illnesses.

The researchers — Dr. Robert Cade, Dr. Dana Shires, Dr. H. James Free and Dr. Alejandro de Quesada — soon discovered two key factors that were causing the Gator players to 'wilt': the fluids and electrolytes the players lost through sweat were not being replaced, and the large amounts of carbohydrates the players' bodies used for energy were not being replenished.

The researchers then took their findings into the lab, and scientifically formulated a new, precisely balanced carbohydrate-electrolyte beverage that would adequately replace the key components lost by Gator players through sweating and exercise. They called their concoction ‘Gatorade'.

Snack Spotlight: FLYJOY Espresso Cacao Nib Endurance Snack Bar

 

We can thank some perky little goats for our love of coffee—at least according to legend. Ages ago, in the Ethiopian highlands, a goatherd named Kaldi noticed that his goats wouldn’t sleep at night after munching on a particular tree. Kaldi told the abbot of the local monastery, so the abbot put some of its berries into a powerful drink. He found that it kept him alert through the evening prayers. So he shared it with his brothers in the monastery and the popularity of coffee spread.

Thankfully, you don’t have to wear a habit anymore to enjoy the energizing effects of coffee. Coffee also offers a host of health benefits, including fighting fatigue and boosting athletic performance. It also includes a boost of antioxidants, which help decrease inflammation after exercise.

Our Espresso Cacao FLYJOY is for serious coffee lovers! Finely ground espresso, chunks of real cacao and whole almonds are stirred into our classic base of creamy almond butter, ground flax, chia seeds and crunchy quinoa. Bold, smoky espresso and intense, chocolaty cacao are balanced by pieces of rich, toasted almond for a bar that tastes like it’s straight from the coffee shop, giving you the boost you need to power through your day.

 

 

 
THE INGREDIENTS
iStock_000021240428Small

QUINOA

The Incas referred to quinoa as chisaya mama, the mother of all grains.

Quinoa was sacred to the Incas, due to its unique energy-boosting properties. They believed it gave them extra stamina and strength—and they were right! Quinoa is high in protein, fiber, and many essential nutrients. If you were going to based your civilization on a food staple, it’s hard to beat quinoa.

According to legend, the Incan emperor sowed the first quinoa seed each year with great ceremony. In fact, Incan society was so influenced by quinoa that the Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizzaro destroyed their quinoa fields in order to undermine their culture. After 1532 only a few small pockets of wild quinoa survived high in the mountains. It was only in the 1970s when it was rediscovered by the outside world that quinoa regained its popularity. Modern nutritional science has validated the superpowers of quinoa. The United Nations has designated quinoa as a “super crop,” due to its potential for feeding the world’s hungry poor.

 

 

 
opats
OATS

The English made fun of the Scots for eating oats—it was horse food!

Would you eat animal food for breakfast? Heaven forbid! That’s how the English thought about oats for the longest time. It was “horse food.” The famous English linguist Samuel Johnson defined “Oats” in his dictionary this way: “eaten by people in Scotland, but fit only for horses in England.” Ouch! But the Scots had their own reply: “That’s why England has such good horses, and Scotland has such fine men!”

Modern nutrition science has revealed that the English were definitely missing out. Oats is a significant source of protein and fiber. It also includes important nutrients like manganese and magnesium. Moreover, oats have been found to lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease. Scots-1, English-0!

 

 

 
flax

FLAX

In the 8th Century King Charlemagne passed laws requiring his subjects to eat flax.

Flax has been a staple of human civilization for millennia. Babylonians are believed to have been the first to cultivate flax has early as 3000 BC. The Egyptian Pharaohs also produced and exported flax. The popularity of flax only increased with time. The Romans and Greeks sang the praises of flax, and it continued to spread into Europe and Russia during the Middle Ages. In fact, Charlemagne was so convinced by the benefits of flaxseed he commanded them by law to do so. Talk about life coaching!

Modern nutritional science has validated Charlemagne’s intuition. Flaxseeds contain a number of essential vitamins and minerals, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids, and fiber. There’s some evidence it may reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes as well. Long live the king!

 

 

 

 
chia

CHIA

In 1997, 52-year-old Cirildo Charcarito won a 100-mile race by eating chia.

Cirildo Charcarito, a 52 year old Tarahumara Indian, arrived to the Nike-sponsored 100-mile race wearing homemade sandals he had made from tire treads. He had not trained for the event—and worse he had arrived late, a full 30 minutes after the race had begun. But Cirildo decided to race anyway against the world’s best endurance runners.

Astonishingly, he would complete the course in 19 hours, 37 minutes, and 3 seconds—a full half hour ahead of competition! His secret? He ate chia seeds before and during the race, the way his ancestors had done for centuries. Mayan and Aztec warriors believed the chia held supernatural powers and would eat them during long hunting trips. Modern science has shown that chia seeds are packed with protein, Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, calcium, and fiber. This has made chia a popular energy food for marathon runners. Run on, Cirildo!

Product Spotlight: Elivar Recover Protein Supplement Drink Mix

 

 

Are you finding it takes longer to recover after training? It could be because you’re not getting a blend of nutrients optimised for athletes of your age. Before you start missing sessions or scaling back your effort try Elivar Recover.

Most recovery products have a 3:1 ratio of high glycaemic index carbs: whey protein, but as you get older you need a higher proportion of protein to recover effectively. That’s why Elivar Recover has a 1:1 ratio – and for sustained recovery a blend of fast releasing whey and slow releasing casein. This creates a longer recovery “window” to get you to your next session in better shape and with less pain. It’s just one of a whole range of benefits Elivar Recover offers -

 

HEALTHY BONES
It gets harder to absorb calcium from food and synthesize vitamin D through our skin as we age. That’s why all Elivar products contain a blend of calcium and vitamin D for healthy bones.
IMMUNE SYSTEM
Support for your immune system with vitamins B6 and B12. Elivar Recover helps maintain healthy levels of these vitamins, and that’s important because they tend to fall as we age.
REPLENISH ENERGY
Elivar Recover contains isomaltulose, a low glycaemic index carbohydrate that provides a steady and sustained supply of energy in the bloodstream. It does not give you the peaks and crashes associated with the fructose which is found in many leading sports nutrition products
MUSCLE RETENTION & REPAIR
Immediate, sustained delivery of muscle supporting proteins. A combination of fast-acting whey and slow-release casein deliver muscle-supporting branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) for sustained recovery from your last session.
