BAC and Women’s Fitness
The Martial Art of Wellness
Volume 17 – June 2018
Welcome to this month’s BioNews. We learn to free ourselves from controls exerted over us. As we research we become FREE, we become powerful. This pursuit of self-defense in wellness, I call “The Martial Art of Wellness.” And as we practice we become Ninjas.

THIS ISSUE’S TESTIMONIAL: (My favorite product I have ever used)
”After starting with the BAC formula, within a few days I felt a difference in my energy, my regularity and my overall health. By the time I had been on the product for 3 to 4 weeks, what a difference. The energy level and overall health-well being were to me 100% better. With the continued use of BAC, my cycle became regular in May. I have been thrilled with the progress my body has made over the past year. My cycle is regular to the day, my female hormones have adjusted and are now secreting properly and I truly feel as if my body’s core is stronger and healthy. Not to mention the fact that I am a teacher around many, many children who carry hundreds of germs that I now continually fight off avoiding those awful sicknesses I used to get prior to BAC. ”

THE MARTIAL ART OF WELLNESS ( BAC and Women’s Fitness )
It’s a glorious day, the sun is shining, the winds are calm, the air is crisp and you breathe in the joy as you strap on your bicycle helmet and hear the click of your clips melding with your pedals. And you are off! Ah, the joy of being a healthy fit woman of the 21st century!
Whether you are a weekend wellness warrior, a dedicated trained athlete or a newcomer to the fitness world, knowing how your nutritional intake affects your physical performance is crucial to your athletic success. Training your heart, building strength, and keeping your body limber and toned requires more than just exercise.
In this article I will touch upon the importance of the ATP Phase, building muscles and how Bio-Algae Concentrates (BAC) complements these processes.
The most important element involved with energy is “energy coherence”; the efficient transformation of nutrients in our foods into the “ATP Phase”. ATP is short for adenosine triphosphate, which is used by the cells as a direct source of energy. ATP is made when you burn sugars and other nutrients, and your cells consume ATP when they engage in activities like building larger molecules and producing movement and during athletic performance.
Cells extract the chemical energy from various nutrient molecules like proteins, carbohydrates and proteins and use the chemical energy to make ATP. The cells then break down ATP, releasing energy, as they engage in a variety of activities.
When food is consumed, the intestine absorbs the nutrient molecules into the bloodstream. Cells then take these nutrients and chemically burn them to liberate energy. For example, one of the most important sources of cellular energy is glucose, a molecule that comes from starch and many dietary sugars. As the cells break down glucose, they use the energy liberated from breaking down a single molecule of glucose to make approximately 30 molecules of ATP.
Once a cell has made ATP, it can use the ATP to fulfill any of its energy needs. Muscle cells use ATP to produce movement. When a muscle cell contracts, it uses large quantities of ATP to fuel the contraction. BAC has been proven to increase protein synthesis, help maintain muscle mass and improve recovery from strenuous exercise in endurance athletes.
Here is what a few of our women athletes had to say:
Energy and Revitalization – “I believe that the path to Wellness is firstly a journey within. Eating disorders, depression, lymes; Olympians too have healing to do… Swimming in the vast sea of remedies, foods, and supplements available to us today can be very confusing. I’ve not found anything yet to bring me as much energy and revitalization as BAC. I feel blessed to have come across Dr. Kiriac’s formula to help give my brain and body the food that it needs!” – Catherine Garceau, Olympic Medalist, Sydney 2000
Less Fatigue and Pain – “I am very pleased with Bio-Algae Concentrates. It has really helped turn around my chronic fatigue. I have an even level of energy all day and can exercise without having excess pain.” – Beverly M., California
In addition to supplying an “extraordinary” array of nutrients, the principal value of consuming BAC is its power to “awaken the genius within”. When fed efficiently by BAC, the mission critical organs of the brain (hypothalamus/pituitary axis) which regulate all metabolic activities will operate more efficiently. You will be able to assimilate “vastly more” nutrients from the nutrition you consume and feed your body the energy it requires for peak performance.
BAC contains spirulina algae, which is one of nature’s greatest sources of the essential amino acid leucine. Leucine has successfully been used as a supplement for athletes looking to increase their muscle mass. It helps with muscle recovery by preventing muscle proteins from breaking down from the impact of hard exercise and by helping them to recover faster. There are hundreds of athletes of all kinds from all over the world that take BAC and that have reported an increase in strength and muscle mass when they combine it with their regular training.
Best of all, BAC is not a hormone, steroid or chemical and has been proven to be 100% safe. It has produced a variety of positive effects in a large number of scientific studies and has no known side effects. Listed below are just a few benefits of BAC as they relate to sports and athletic performance.
Reduced Oxidative Damage – BAC contains many carotenoids/antioxidants like beta carotene and astaxanthin, which protects muscle tissue against free radical oxidative damage during exercise and also inhibits the secondary inflammatory response. This leads to increased muscle endurance.
Lean Muscle Mass Building, Increased Stamina and Strength – BAC taken after workouts helps rebuild, repair, and grow lean muscle mass. The more intensive the training, the more effective BAC seems to be, promoting fat burning, toning, lean mass building, increased stamina and strength.
Vitamins and Minerals – BAC supplies an array of vitamins such the critical B vitamins, including B12, and the vitamins A, E, D, K and C. It contains mixed carotenoids, nucleic acid, chlorophyll, essential fatty acids, proteins/amino acids and minerals as well as trace elements such as calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. Regular use is known to reduce the level of saturated fatty acids in the liver and increase the level of unsaturated fatty acids, enabling distribution and delivery of nutrients where they are most needed for peak metabolism.
Powerful Antioxidants – Astaxanthin as contained in BAC has been examined for its sports-nutrition applications, particularly with respect to endurance athletes. A 2002 study among Japanese track athletes found that after one month of daily astaxanthin supplementation, lactic acid buildup following a 1,200-metre run was reduced by nearly 29%.
BAC complements a woman’s nutritional plan so the nutritional plan should complement BAC. A few tips to consider are:
- Eating a diet rich in whole grains, lean protein, whole foods, and fruits and vegetables rather than processed products plays a key role in a woman’s muscular development.
- Choose whole foods over meal replacement bars and pre-mixed protein shakes.
- There are many good lean protein sources in plants, grains and seeds.
- Healthy carbohydrates include oatmeal, brown rice, quinoa, whole grain breads, fresh vegetables and fruits.
- Choose fats from unsaturated sources such as ground flax, avocado, olive or safflower oil, natural peanut butter and almonds.
- Eat small snack-sized meals often to keep hunger in check and provide nutrition to working muscles.
- Eating every three to four hours prevents extreme hunger and prevents the body from turning to muscle for fuel.
BAC is a highly efficient energy food! If you find you need a little extra energy to get through your workout, eating a few more capsules of BAC just may give you the strength and endurance you need.
