Here is a complete transcript of the Eric Guttmann Interview – Part 2 video:
Eric: So when you take this and this chain of events, what is happening? You’re emulsifying the fat, you’re shuttling it into the cell, and with the CoQ10, you’re burning that cell for fuel and you have this ATP mechanism going on which, what it means to me is, my brain works a lot better.
Sometimes at work, where I’m a Naval office, I’m in a secret environment, well start talking and then because I’ve taken my CoQ19 and then I will start raising my voice and being excited and they say like lower your voice. And I realize that I haven’t taken caffeine, it’s just that my bran is operating at a better level because of the ATP. Remember ATP is the whole energy production cycle of the body.
When people take creatine, why are they doing that? The creatine is for that 10 to 15 second exercise where you take the adenosine triphosphate, you burn one phosphate and it becomes ADP, and you’re waiting for your body to generate the extra phosphate so it becomes ATP again for those contractions. Now when you go on aerobic, that’s when it takes three or more minutes and you start the Krebs cycle but you’re still working off of ATP.
The same thing happens with Zenith Youth System with the Zenith Youth Matrix. Our market you could say is women 40 to 60 years old because my partner says women want two things: they want to look young and they want to be thin. If you do anything that actually delivers on that promise, you’re going to have very happy customers and you’ll have a very successful business.
When I put on Zenith Youth Matrix, I’m a guy, I’m in the Navy, I wasn’t thinking about that but because it is such a high quality pure supplement, I’m using it as transdermal anti-aging therapy for my own health and well being and I smatter a lot on my forehead and my eyes and then whatever is left over after shaving. It helps me to think better because I’m already taking all those omega-3s internally. When the omega-3s mix in with the ATP that’s coming in through the CoQ10 that’s coming in from the outside, it creates an effect called methylation, which is what allows for that ATP cycle to be enabled.
So I get better ideas. I even get better vision when I use it. I mean it’s amazing because when I explained that, I made a point of saying pharmaceutical grade. That means it’s stuff that’s pure enough to go inside your body. The reason that they’re not doing that is very simple. Pharmaceutical grade ingredients are twice or more expensive than topical grade. Second, most of the skin care creams out there are made by perfume companies. That way they can use topical grade ingredients and they don’t have to deal with FDA-approved facilities.
Because we’re using pharmaceutical grade ingredients, we had to go to an FDA-approved facility and we chose one of the best. In fact, if you ever heard of Crea Alkaline, which is that pH-balanced creatine, they are the guys who invented it and have the patent for it. So these guys are responsible for Crea-Alkaline distribution to the whole world. Here’s my Crea-Alkaline right here.
Bud: That’s amazing, man. Actually, I was going to say I have a friend, Steven Santangelo, another guy who does the same kind of stuff that we do, man. He’s a brilliant biochemically as far as nutrition and he makes all his own skin care products but something he specifically told me was if you can’t eat it, you shouldn’t put it on your skin.
Bud: You wouldn’t ingest it internally and that’s been a thing in the side we think we were talking about for years is that people talk about topical painkillers and reality is, most of that stuff doesn’t doing anything because they don’t put enough. They don’t put enough and they don’t put a bioavailable form. If you’re really going to help your skin or whatever, it has to be bioavailable. Other than that, you’re just like putting oil [inaudible 0:15:35.5]
Eric: And the other thing, I challenge you to whatever stuff you’re going to put on your body, turn it around and see what’s actually in it. Zenith Youth Matrix only has seven ingredients. I’ve already mentioned four. The other three are olive oil, beeswax, and stearic acid, three ingredients that help to hydrate the skin and protect the skin. Even if you go to a health food store, look at the list of ingredients. It’s usually like twenty or more and they have all these chemicals.
The reason Zenith Youth Matrix came to be is because my partner, who’s a biochemical genius, who’s running his health food stores and health-related matters for 20 years. Out of curiosity at a late-night infomercial which was probably called stem cell therapy, he ordered it and it didn’t work. He called over and over again, “What are the active ingredients?” and that will be the first red flag. If they don’t tell you what the ingredients are, that’s a big red flag. Apparently, it’s something like bamboo, algae, something like that. There was no real science or pharmaceutical grade ingredients and he says well, now I know why it doesn’t work but he sees there’s a infomercial, this is what people want. He does it because he’s on to the pulse of his business.
Then the second thing that happened is that he had a client, a very well-to-do female customer, went to Diller’s [phonetic 0:17:00.7] and spent around $600 to $800 on some Gucci skin care that gave her a rash. It actually irritated her skin because it had so many toxic chemicals that it irritated her skin and now she comes into health food stores saying, “Can you please help me to heal this?” And he said, “I bet I can do one better,” and that’s how he came up with the formula.
Actually, you know how he started? We started taking these supplements, started taking the collagen pills and opening them. We started taking the CoQ10 and then just dumping it into the sushi dish and we’re mixing it and getting the right ratio and putting it on our skin and seeing. Once we’ve got the winner, then we contacted All American. Then we just came up with a totally better product because of their manufacturing process.
Bud: I’m going to kind of jump through some things here. You were telling me the supplements you take, they’re actually in your stuff?
Eric: Oh, yeah.
Bud: Tell me what you take because I’m not a big supplement guy. I’m not a big believer. I endorsed one supplement one time and only because there wasn’t anything I didn’t believe it. I mean it was a real thing or whatever and I’m not that guy. Because I believe most people don’t really understand that supplements are—
Eric: A supplement.
Bud: For most people, that’s the base of what I do and the food I eat is a supplement. That’s totally the opposite of what’s going on and reality is, it’s a totally unregulated industry and most of it is just trash. Tell me what you take because for health-interested people—tell me what you take and tell me three things you take right now, three or four.
Eric: Right, I’ll say that first of all, I agree exactly with what you say. Some people ask me, “Do I take a multivitamin?” I say no. Why is that? Because every day, for breakfast I have in my biomix, organic fruits and vegetables and if you eat enough organic fruits and vegetables, that’s how you get your vitamins and minerals. So your nutrition is your staple and you have to eat natural food as close to their natural state as possible. So that means organic foods and vegetables and vegetables have your minerals. You can juice your vegetables but you always have to eat your fruits because if you juice the fruits through your juicer, you’re removing the fiber which is the speed break and you just get an insulin rush.
Going back to what I do, my strategy is to make sure that every meal I eat has a health source of protein, fat, and carbohydrates. On top of that, what I am taking is what I talked about. I’m taking omega-3s, L-carnitine, and coenzyme Q10 or ubiquinol, to service my anti-aging stack because it keeps my ATP process up.
Now, my maca. I just came back from Peru so my wife is Peruvian, and I’ve now that I’ve had access to Peru for over 10 years. My father-in-law ran a lot of restaurants but he also went to the Agronomical in Peru called La Monina so I’m also taking, as you know, maca. I am taking a very specific maca, the one from equandino [phonetic 0:20:12.0] because it is the best maca in the world. I have been trying every single type of maca there is out there for the last 15 years and one of the problems with maca is that it oxidizes very fast. So it has to be vacuum packed.
That is why, if you ever go to a health food store and they sell it like in a canister and it’s like three-quarters filled with maca that oxygen in there is oxidizing and taking away the potency of the maca. That’s why I go, well I bought this at this health food store here in the States, I didn’t feel anything. How come when I buy the one in Peru, how come I feel it? And even in Peru, there are different grades. So I’m taking maca.
I’m also doing more experiments. I’ve brought something called unha de gato, cat’s claw, and there are some actors in Latin America who have cured themselves from cancer with this. I asked the lady there. I was lucky enough in the last trip to Peru, there was a huge fair and they had all these people who were bringing all these food from the Amazons. I asked her if somebody is healthy and wants to just use it as a preventative, what do I do? She said, “Well, take one a day in the morning.” So I’m taking cat’s claw. Again, I’m going to only do it for three months.
I’m also taking something else. This one is really weird. I eating with one of my wife’s cousins and he actually is from up north. We’re in Lima and he understands everything that these women from the Amazon have. So he said there’s something called tokosh [phonetic 0:21:46.3] and he said, “This is when we take the potatoes and we let them rot. And then, we dry this powder out and you take it sort of as an antibiotic an immune booster.” And I always thought antibiotics are bad because they kill the good bacteria in your intestine so I asked the lady again, if somebody is healthy and they’re just looking to be healthier, should they take this? And she says, “Yes, but only once in the morning.” So I’m also experimenting with that, tok osh.
Maca is a staple. I’ll do maca three months on, three months off, and I take 15 grams. What I do is maca is food. It is a powdered root, kind of like a mixture between the ginseng root and the potato so it’s a little bit thicker but basically, it’s like a food staple in the Andes. So I’ll take 5 to 6 grams in water with every meal so 6 times 3 is 18. So I’m like aiming for 15 to 18 grams of maca a day. For the next three months, I’m going to be playing around with the cat’s claw and this tok osh to see if there’s any difference to it.
Another thing that I’ve played with in and out is something that my partner has talked about is phosphatidylserine and this is something that you’ll feel the first day you tried it. Like I’ll take 300 mg of phosphatidylserine when I know I’m going to write a lot of reports or I’m going to do a lot of interpreting in the Navy, and you’ll actually feel the blood flow to your brain from phosphatidylserine.
Now sometimes, I’ll use it on a daily basis. Sometimes let’s say, I’m going to buy some phosphatidylserine and I want to take it for three months. Sometimes, I’ll always have a bottle and I’ll just take it when I feel like it. But my staple is omega-3, L-carnitine, coQ10, which will be the basis for Zenith Youth Factor and what you said, the healthy nutrition, ensuring I have a healthy source of fat, carbohydrates, and protein.
Okay, I’m going into supplements a little bit. If I have a healthy carbohydrate like what did I eat today for breakfast? Beets, organic red beets, one of the most powerful anti-cancer things you can eat. Distilled water and I added some an agricolis and then, how do I get my protein? Protein powder. And then for fat I have a whole table spoon of flex seed oil.
Stay tuned for the third and final part.
