Your blood cells replace themselves every three to four months. Your muscle cells replace themselves about every six months. Brain cells can take a year or more to replace themselves.
Right when each of these types of cells are formed, they use the nutrition the person is giving their body at that time. In other words, the cells are limited in function for their whole lifetime by the nutrition they receive when they are formed. If you eat garbage proteins, you cannot help but grow a garbage body. And you are stuck with that body for the next six months.

Make Your Cleanse Day a “Shred Day”
It was once taken as fact by bodybuilders and fitness competitors that to keep metabolism high and stay anabolic, you had to eat every three to four hours. Any deviation from this eating schedule would put one at risk of losing hard-earned muscle—every bodybuilder’s nightmare. But with the rise of intermittent fasting, traditional dietary philosophies for building muscle and burning fat have been turned on their heads. Both the science and anecdotal reports are beginning to show that intermittent fasting can help bodybuilders get shredded.*
Triathletes Gain Competitive Edge with Isagenix
A pilot trial finds Isagenix helps triathletes maintain top condition to face unique challenges of running, cycling, and swimming. Training as a competitive triathlete is demanding. Unlike other endurance athletes who train for one individual sport, triathletes must meet the unique challenges of running, swimming, and cycling in an all-day race. They work long, hard hours to keep their bodies in peak condition by maintaining a balance of little body fat, yet sufficient muscle mass and energy for top performance. Now, preliminary research suggests Isagenix products could assist triathletes in achieving a competitive edge.
