Tell us a little about yourself

My name is Mads Tærsbøl. I am 25 years old and I live in Copenhagen. Since 2010, I have been on the Danish national team on various distances, on the track as well as in cross country. My big goal is to compete in the Olympic games in 2020 (Tokyo) and 2024 (Paris). Besides running, I am reading my Masters in Exercise and Sports Science. 

What is your everyday routine?

After I wake up after 9-10 hours of good sleep, I prepare for my first run of the day: 8-12 km easy running to loosen up the legs, and get a good start of the day. To watch the sunrise and the city slowly wakes is truly energizing. Afterwards, I get a good breakfast including some of my VITAVIVA-supplements – I feel they make me even more ready for the day ahead. Then, I either study from home or at the university and after studying I will get back home and go out for my second workout (longer run with intervals, hills or continuous tempo) with my team-mates or alone. In the evening, I will take my second dose of VITAVIVA with my dinner and thereafter try to relax before bedtime.

What is your approach to a healthy lifestyle?

I believe in a natural approach to everything. When it comes to food, I favour organic fruit and vegetables over-processed food, and I believe that you need to eat a mixed diet including a healthy combination of fats, proteins, carbohydrates and LOTS of clean water. I also believe that you need to exercise at least 1 hour each day with a combination of cardio, strength and flexibility.
Mentally, I believe you need to be happy and to have a positive attitude towards everything – obstacles doesn’t exist only challenges do.

Why did you start taking VITAVIVA? How do they affect your everyday life?

I started out with VITAVIVA in a period with hard training where my immune system suffered a bit. A friend of mine recommended me to try them out, and I have not regretted it ever since. The products are just levels above everything else on the market. VITAVIVA believes in clean, high-quality products with the most potent ingredients, and I truly feel that in the supplements I take.
Through VITAVIVA’s products I have had fewer colds over the autumn and winter period, and in general had a faster recovery from stressful periods of training and studying. I can only recommend VITAVIVA to everyone who wants the best, and who wants to invest in themselves.

Is VITAVIVA different than other supplements you have taken? If so, why?

The biggest difference is the quality of the products and the amounts of vitamins/minerals/herbs there is in each serving. Furthermore, the best doctors, therapists and dietitians recommend VITAVIVA. Compared to other products on the market I feel an actual difference from VITAVIVA and not just a “feel-good-effect” by taking a few random supplements. I am quite critical when it comes to supplements, and try to get all the knowledge I can about the firm, the products and the ingredients, and VITAVIVA lives up to all my expectations. 

Which are your favorite VITAVIVA products and why?

My favorite products are VITAMAX, TURMERIC and GLUCOXTRA.

VITAMAX because it’s the best all-around vitamin, mineral and herb-tablet on the market. I get my bases covered and I am therefore sure that I get everything I need.

Turmeric, because the dose is of the best quality, and because I am sure my body will get nearly all the benefits from the product. Turmeric is good for so many things, but the biggest difference for me is the anti-inflammatory effect of it.

GLUCOXTRA, because my bones, joints and ligaments get what they need to recover and get stronger. With more than 175 km/week in my running shoes, my system is under big pressure, and with GLUCOXTRA I feel sure I can prevent too much stress to be a serious issue in those parts of my body.

If you could choose one VITAVIVA product which would it be and why?

It would be VITAMAX, since I get nearly everything when it comes to vitamins, minerals and herbs. The unique mixture of it all makes 2 + 2 = 10.

Wouldn’t go a day without VITAMAX in the morning and evening.

Do you have a mantra that you swear by?

If you can dream it – you can do it.

  2. Amino 2 Gram 2200 mg / 150 tablets

    PROTEIN POWDER IN TABLET FORM.

    Pure powder squeezed into a tablet. Without flavoring and additives. And much easier to bring on the go.

    Amino acids are included in the structure of muscles and cells. There are 20 amino acids of importance for human biochemistry. The 8 are called essential amino acids. The individual amino acids are vital nutrients that are essential for the body's growth, regeneration, including wound healing, the immune system and the production of enzymes and hormones.

    The amino acids via diet come from both plants and animals. We have to get them through our food as we do not produce them ourselves. The individual proteins are built up as a complex network of hundreds of amino acids that are linked into basic units called peptides. Two amino acids bind to a dipeptide, three to a tripeptide, four to a tetrapeptide, and many amino acids bound to form a polypeptide. Numerous polypeptides together form a protein. Our food proteins also have this structure in a dense and complicated network consisting of a very large number of amino acids.

    Twenty percent of the body is made up of protein. However, in order for the organism to utilize the amino acids bound to the protein, it is essential that they be completely released from one another. A prerequisite for achieving this is that we are able to fully digest the protein we consume so that it is completely broken down into its molecular constituents, ie. amino acids. With few exceptions, only free amino acids can be taken up and used by the organism.

    Amino 2 grams contains 18 different amino acids.
