  • How it works

    Your Encour! is a new bioenergetic dietary supplement, so you'll find answers to your questions about how the product works in the human body here. Please let us know if you have a question that is not listed here. We want you to be informed!

    • What is the science behind how Your Encour!™ provides energy to your body?

      Answer: The energy comes from improved availability and amounts of energy stored at the cellular level.

      o

      We obtain energy by consuming food, including the nutrients that are the building blocks for creatine your own body makes, meat and fish that contain creatine, or a creatine supplement like Your Encour! ™.

      o

      The “molecular currency” of energy transfer inside cells in the human body is called ATP (adenosine triphosphate). If energy is required with the movement of muscles, the use of your brain or nervous system cells, or other activities of your body, ATP can release a phosphate group – resulting in ADP (adenosine diphosphate).

      o

      Creatine is able to move freely within the cell. It’s like a mobile charging station that is always ready to supply energy in a flash whenever it is needed. Creatine recharges cells by converting the ADP back into ATP. For a technical review of the metabolic role of creatine, you can find information here.

      o

      The process of recharging your cells in your body takes time. It doesn't happen immediately. That's why we recommend that you take Your Encour! daily so that your cells are recharged fully, and you always have energy available. 

      o

      Additionally, each cell is not able to store unlimited amounts of ATP. There's only so much capacity in each cell, so providing more support for the bioenergetic processes of your body each day is essential.

      o

      That is why creatine in the form of phosphocreatine has such an important role to play in energy supply. Phosphocreatine can be stored in the cell in larger quantities. In addition, it is able to donate a phosphate group to ADP, thereby enabling the fastest possible regeneration of the ATP. You feel this difference when you recover faster after exercise or activity when using Your Encour!™.

    • You call Your Encour!™ a Bioenergetic supplement. What does that mean?

      Bioenergetics refers to a specific area of biology related to the process of how cells transform energy by producing, storing or consuming adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
      Your Encour!™ works specifically to impact 
      ATP.

      O

      Our living bodies are complex wonders of biology powered by bioactive compounds. We use the word Bioenergetic to describe our supplement Your Encour!™ because it specifically impacts ATP by transforming ADP with the addition of creatine. This terminology is more accurate than simply using the generic term “dietary supplement”. For compliance with FDA regulations, we must include the term dietary supplement in our packaging and promotional materials.

      O

      Your Encour!™ Bioenergetic dietary supplement supports a healthy body because it helps to power your cells in a unique way. Other supplements may contain caffeine, sugar, or other ingredients that can make you feel energized for a time, but then you crash. Our product supplies real support to your whole system, through the supplementation of creatine, so you don’t feel let down after taking it. Your body uses creatine in the form of phosphocreatine to specifically impact ATP.

      O

    • Your Encour!™ says it contains Vitamin C. What amount is included?

      In one serving, you will receive:

      o 

      100% of your daily Vitamin C requirement from Your Encour!™ PowerStix™ drink powder and 50% of your daily Vitamin C requirement from Your Encour!™ PowerTabs™ chewable tablets.

      o

      Your Encour!™ Bioenergetic supplement is designed to help you enjoy taking your supplement, and the tart flavor is enhanced by Vitamin C. There is a difference in the formulations for a practical reason.

       o

      We have virtually unlimited space in our drink powder because you dissolve the contents of the PowerStix™ in water or other liquid. This means we can put 100% of your daily requirement into that formulation.

       o

      Space is limited in our chewable tablets called PowerTabs™ so there’s only room to fit 50% of your daily requirement in this formulation.

       o

      Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and supports a healthy immune system. We encourage you to enjoy a diet with plenty of citrus, fruits and vegetables, but a little extra C doesn’t hurt.   Click here and here for more.

       o

    • Does Your Encour!™contain antioxidants?

      Yes, you can find two antioxidants in Your Encour!™. First is Vitamin C, which is a well-known antioxidant.

      o

      Second is creatine, which has antioxidant effects in living cells. 

      o

      You likely have heard the term antioxidants used in referring to compounds that aid the body’s immune system. These substances reduce damage due to oxygen, which can be caused by free radicals. They are often found in nuts, colorful fruits and vegetables, and juice, coffee, tea and wine.

      o

      In general, antioxidants may help prevent or delay cell damage, which may play a role in your health. Specific research into the use of creatine as an antioxidant is limited.

      o

      In a study titled Creatine supplementation affords cytoprotection in oxidatively injured cultured mammalian cells via direct antioxidant activity by Piero Sestili et.al, the researchers conclude that creatine is a mild, although significant, antioxidant.

      o

      In another study from Italy, titled Differential effect of creatine on oxidatively injured mitochondrial and nuclear DNA Chiara Guidi et. al., the authors credit creatine with similar antioxidant properties, and it is suggested that the protection creatine affords cells against injury could help prevent certain effects of aging.

      o

    • Can I get creatine from food instead of from a supplement like Your Encour!™?

      Absolutely you could, but you may have to change your diet radically to consume the same amount of creatine as you will find in Your Encour!™. 

      o

      You need to have your stored energy provided by creatine at maximum level each and every day. Inside the body, creatine gets broken down every day into creatinine. This loss of creatine can be partly compensated by your body's natural creatine production or through your diet. To insure your creatine level remains at the maximum, supplements are often the most reliable approach. You can get the exact, measured amount of the particular nutrient you need.

      o

      You can also get creatine from food, but the amount you can consume is limited.

       o

      Fish and meat products are the main natural sources of creatine. These contain concentrations of between 3 and 5 grams per kilo. This means that you would have to consume the equivalent of ten 16 ounce steaks every day (roughly one kilogram of meat) to obtain the 3 grams of creatine provided by Your Encour!™ . 

      o

      What about other food sources? With a concentration of roughly 0.1 gram per kilogram, dairy products do not supply your needs as they contain very little creatine. 

      o

      Only traces of creatine can be found in plant-based foods. This creates a real challenge to vegetarians and vegans. Studies show significant additional benefits of taking the creatine found in Your Encour!for people on plant-based diets.

    • How long will it take for Your Encour!™ to start working?

      Within 2 weeks you should notice a difference, but within 4 weeks of daily use, you should experience the maximum effect. 

      o

      It will take a little while before you start to feel the effect of Your Encour!™. If you take it on a daily basis, you can expect to achieve maximum creatine levels after around three to four weeks. Why so long? It takes some time for your body to restore creatine levels to those of your youth. 

      o

      What might you experience? 

      o

      First, you may notice your muscles are a little fuller than before. This initial response is attributed to the water that your cells take in along with the active ingredient in Your Encour!™. Older adults may see fewer fine wrinkles and lines in their skin. You might be thirstier than before, which is your body’s way of getting the water that your muscles need. 

      o

      Second, you may notice you don’t tire as easily as before. This may happen if you stay up later than normal, then feel well rested the next morning. Or if you go for a longer walk than normal and don’t feel different than when you walked a shorter distance. 

      o

      Third, you may see its full effect with a noticeable increase in performance when you exercise or participate in an activity. In addition, you may recover more quickly after exertion, as your body has the resources to repair the damage readily available. 

      o

    • What happens when I digest Your Encour!™?

      You get essential nutrients from Your Encour!™ to supply the energy you need by providing creatine in an easy to digest drink or chewable tablet. 

      o

      Our recipe contains just the essential ingredients we need to make a great tasting product that tastes great and is easy to use. So your body gets creatine it needs from the active ingredient creatine monohydrate in Your Encour!™. 

      o

      Your body takes time to ingest and transport this vital nutrition to your body. It’s the reason why we recommend taking Your Encour!™ every day. Creatine is essential. The body of an adult contains between 80 and 130 grams of creatine. However, one to two percent of the creatine store gets broken down into creatinine each day and excreted via the kidneys.

      o 

      To remain healthy, your body needs to replace creatine every day. It makes some of what you need, but as you live longer, the amount of creatine available in your body diminishes over time. You can replace it with Your Encour! and regain the energy you once had.

      o

      In contrast to carbohydrates, proteins or fats, Your Encour!™ has no calorific value. But the active ingredient in Your Encour!(TM) plays key role in energy metabolism at the cellular level.– and so is not just important for the skeletal muscles, but also for the heart, brain and various other organs. And the added Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help you stay healthy.
