FAQS

Are YES Ultimate EFA’s good for athletes?

Yes we have a number of professional athletes across the world that use YES Ultimate EFAS and the Ultimate Minerals and Herbal in part of their regular nutrition program.
EFA’s provide the building blocks for important hormones like testosterone and also assist energy and endurance by buffering lactic acid and increasing oxygen transfer.
More oxygen = more energy = more intense workouts = bigger, stronger muscles. Lactic acid is minimized with its failure threshold (“muscle burning”) increased. Do we know that these parent essential oils increase oxygen transfer? Yes, from medical textbooks and medical journal articles like Harper’s Illustrated Biochemistry, pgs. 117, 118, 123, 438; New England Journal of Medicine, 337:1491-1499; “Essential Fatty Acids in Perspective,” Hum Nutr Clin Nutr, 1984 July;38(4):245-260,

Quicker Recuperation
If muscles recuperate faster there is less chance of injury. If muscles recuperate faster you can compete faster with higher performance. PEOs are known to decrease recuperation time. (Harper’s Illustrated Biochemistry, pgs. 93, 191, 418; Principles of Medical Biochemistry, pg. 226; “Essential Fatty Acids in Perspective.”)

I have a Medical question can you answer it for me?

No. we cannot provide any medical advice or recommendations. Please consult your doctor or a health care professional with all such issues.

What are YES Supplement capsules made of?

YES™ Minerals and Herbal capsules are vegetable-based. YES™ Ultimate EFA caps are gelatin-based (bovine). We also offer our EFAs  in a liquid form.

What are PEO’s comprised of?

Parent Essential Oils, (PEOs) Defined

Omega-6 – LA: Linoleic Acid. Your body makes into the derivatives GLA, DGLA, AA, as needed.

Omega-3 – ALA: Alpha Linolenic Acid. Your body makes into the derivatives: SDA, EPA, DHA as needed.

Proper PEO radio: “Parent” omega-6 to “Parent” omega-3 = 1:1 to 2.5:1

What are PEO’s Parent Essential Oils?

PEOs are “whole” EFAs as opposed to EFA derivatives. Fish oil contains NO PEOs.

There are numerous articles on EFAs everywhere with some good information, but nearly all of these articles lack a basic understanding of the difference between “parent” and derivative EFAs. This incomplete understanding of EFAs is the reason the new termParent Essential Oils (PEOs) has been coined, to differentiate between the “parent” and derivative forms of EFAs.

You may also have read that you are getting an overload of omega-6 EFAs in your diet and that you only need to take omega-3 supplements. The problem with this bad advice is that the omega-6 EFAs found in most foods have been mostly damaged and turned into trans-fats. Therefore, by skipping Omega-6 supplementation, you are depriving your body of the essential, undamaged “Parent” omega-6 EFAs it needs to function at peak performance!

How much protein do I need to eat?

Firstly, protein drinks, food bars, and soy-based foods do not provide adequate nutrition, and can be harmful. A 150 pound person requires 6-8 ounces of animal-based protein each day. If you’re craving protein or cheese, you haven’t supplied your body with enough of what it needs. Remember, natural fats and proteins will NOT store extra body fat. These nutrients go directly to structure, building and strengthening your body’s organs and tissues, instead of increasing your waistline.

Should I drink 8 – 12 glasses of water a day?

Drink only when thirsty. The highly publicized “forced drinking of water,” is harmful! You can count other drinks, like tea, in the total water you consume! Excessive water consumption can make you hungry and create excess bloating! If you’re thirsty, by all means drink water. But there is no reason to carry around a huge bottle and drink from it all day long. Unless you are exerting yourself and sweating a lot, constantly drinking water could be too much for your body. Remember, overdosing on water can deplete your body of essential minerals, be hazardous to your health, and is propagated by the water companies whose only goal is greater water sales—not your health.

Should I eat 6 meals a day to keep my metabolism high?

6 meals a day are NOT necessary, eat ONLY when you’re hungry. You are much better off eating fewer times per day—NOT more times. YES™ Ultimate EFAs will help fulfill your appetite so that you don’t overtax your delicate pancreas. Remember, eating 4-6 times a day puts a strain on your pancreas, which is designed to secrete insulin no more than twice daily. And eating sugary or starchy foods more than twice daily isn’t healthy either. Simple fact is, 99% of the pancreas is devoted to handling the digestion of fats and protein while only 1% is devoted to handling sugar / starch (carbs). This speaks volumes for about what the foundation of our diet should be. Medical Reference: Scientific Foundations of Biochemistry in Clinical Practice, David L. Williams, Vincent Marks, Butterworth-Heinemann, September 1994, ISBN: 0750601671.

Are YES™ Supplements safe while pregnant of breast feeding?

Yes. Our supplements are food, meaning they are the same as eating real food. The nutrients in our supplements are vital for good brain development and cell structure!

What about carb-loading before working out or other physical activity?

Unless you’re an athlete and weight loss is not your goal, carb-loading will thwart your efforts. If you exercise to lose or maintain your weight, loading up on carbs will prevent your body from using its own stored body fat for energy. Be sure to avoid any carbohydrates 2 hours before to 2 hours after your workout for maximum results. Also, take YES™ Ultimate EFAs before you work out and you’ll have more energy and endurance, little to no lactic acid burn, and your recovery time will be much shorter!

I suffer from seasonal allergies, what can I do to reduce my symptoms?

The best advice for reducing allergy symptoms is cutting out grains and sugar from your diet. The reason grains can affect allergy symptoms is that the gluten has been shown to exacerbate mucus formation and sensitivity to pollens and other allergy causing stimulants. Try cutting breads and crackers our for a week or two and you’ll probably see a real difference in your symptoms. Our supplements can help, too. Our EFAs will help improve your immune system and our Herbal supplements assist with removal of toxins, which can also improve allergy symptoms.

What about fiber?

Actually, too much rough fiber, like grains, can be harmful to your delicate digestive system’s tissues. It takes very little fiber, simply that from one or two servings of green, leafy vegetables or watery fruits, to provide what you need for proper digestion. This is particularly the case with women. We recommend cutting your portion of bread, cereal and other grain products by at least half. You will reduce your blood sugar levels and not stress your delicate pancreas. You’ll store less body fat, suffer less allergy symptoms (see below), retain much less water (less bloating), and your digestion and elimination will likely improve.

Soy is used in lots of low-carb products, and I’ve heard it’s a great source of protein, is this true?

The facts about Soy contradict the popular image that has been presented. Eating soy in large quantities is harmful to digestion, seriously wrecks your hormones, and can be bad for your overall health. Soy is also not a good source of protein. We highly recommend avoiding soy products. A little isn’t bad, such as soy sauce, etc., but never use soy to replace meat in a meal.

I’m vegetarian, how can I ensure I’m getting what my body needs to be healthy?

You can maintain good long-term health on a vegetarian diet if you get sufficient natural protein from sources like eggs, cheese, and fish. This gives your body the necessary body-rebuilding nutritional protein required to be healthy. Eating less of the carbohydrate-based grains, starches, fruits, and vegetables will also help you feel better and keep excess body fat to a minimum. Because many vegetarians and vegans use soy as a meat replacement, please read the soy information below and be careful consuming lots of soy. We do not recommend ever using soy as a meat replacement.

Are fruits and vegetables good for you?

Unlike popular opinion, fruits and vegetables alone don’t provide the level of nutrition sufficient to maintain good health long term. They aren’t bad for you, unless the more starchy or sugary varieties are eaten in excess, simply because of the high sugar content. A serving or 2 a day of low-carb veggies and fruits like leafy greens, melons, and berries is recommended daily for variety and to aid in digestion. Otherwise you may overload on sugar.

Will YES™ Supplements react with my medications?

No. YES™ Supplements are food products, not drugs. Your body will not treat them in the same was as it would a drug.

I already take Flax oil/Fish oil, do I really need YES™ EFAs?

Yes. Flax is only part of what your body needs, and alone can cause an imbalance. YES™ Ultimate EFAs™ contain organic flax, plus the other essential oils to ensure you get the ideal balance of parent omega 6 and 3. There is no other EFA supplement like it on the market. Also, YES™ Ultimate EFAs™ are FAR superior to fish oil in purity and effectiveness. Please visit BeyondFishOil.com for more information.

Don’t I need to avoid fat in my diet?

It’s not all fats that are harmful, but the adulterated, damaged fats, or fat substitutes you need to avoid. Do not remove good natural fats completely from your diet! Real butter, olive oil, peanut oil, coconut oil and the fat in dairy, meat and fish are good for you and will help keep you satisfied. These misunderstood nutrients are essential for rebuilding organs and tissues. Make certain that the fats and oils you consume are from organic, unprocessed sources. Commercial vegetable oils (containing trans fats) have been reported to contribute to serious health problems. You don’t want these products. For optimal weight loss it is good to reduce saturated fat some days while increasing lean protein. But going low fat long term is unhealthy.
