This episode is also brought to you by BiOptimizers crank your muscle gains to new heights by flooding your muscles with maximum amino acids without increasing your protein intake by a single gram.

  • Are you taking over a hundred grams of protein per day from shakes, supplements and food, but not making the gains you expect?
  • You ever feel bloated or gassy or maybe even get the runs downing your protein shake?
  • Do you want to increase the usable amount of protein in your body?

Protein that enters your bloodstream that helps grow bigger and stronger muscle fibers. Maybe you’ve been feeling backed up since upping the protein in your diet. You need the masszyme package with both masszymes and P3OM, which is the most potent protein digesting probiotic in the world. P3OM is the only nutritional supplement that is shown to enhance the protein assimilation of masszymes because proteolytic enzymes and proteolytic probiotics have a magical synergy when it comes to breaking down protein and other nutrients.

This powerful 1-2 punch combo will give you:

  • Pre-workout energy,
  • Boost your workout energy by increasing your metabolism of carbs, fat, and protein for fuel.
  • It decreases the need for sleep and recovery,
  • Reduces the demands of the digestive organs to breakdown and process food.
  • It enhances your immune system,
  • Clears away undigested protein that rots in the gut and allows bacteria to thrive,
  • And it increases mental clarity and focus.

By improving digestion your body has more resources to allocate for mental and cognitive function. I can definitely vouch for this combo, my wife can too. We’ve noticed great results from taking it, so I highly recommend you guys check it out at
