Breakthrough Product - My Story
Hi Jim, just wanted to say thanks for introducing me to the swish, it's changed my life in some remarkable ways. As you know I've been a lifelong ice hockey player. I started skating at age 4, played throughout my youth, college, some semi-pro and to this day I still play in what most would consider competitive adult rec leagues. During official hockey off-seasons players from D1 schools, Euro, AHL, and even NHL come to play. Since around my early 40's I've noticed a marked decline in my endurance, strength, and stability but I still have to compete with the 20 and 30 yr olds. I wake up the next morning stiff - not necessarily sore but it takes a little bit to get going. Needless to say, I've been eyeing my "draft entry" into the over 50 leagues.
Recently, I started taking the "Swish" and as silly as I thought that was, what I experienced was amazing. I had been swishing for about two and a half days. After my first "dose" I didn't notice much except clarity in my mind. I had an interesting sensation in my forehead right between my eyes, it felt like an oxygen buzz (I've used oxygen therapy before and it felt similar). It makes sense once you understand the science of how Glutathione allows hemoglobin to transport oxygen to our cells, so I wanted to put it to the test for my next game.
Normally, my MO was always to pace myself to get through a full 60 minutes, not taking it too hard initially. If I don't, I end up feeling like a fish out of water, gasping for air, unstable legs, weight transfer, etc. my play would become feeble and I'd be back on the bench in recovery mode.
This last week we had a short bench with only 7 skaters (5 on-ice, 2 subs). This would be a real test! I played nearly the whole game, my intensity was up twofold, and I felt great. I didn't get “Bambi legs” or lose many puck battles, I didn't lose my breath. I felt so efficient I really couldn't believe it. Don't get me wrong, I was breathing hard but I never got to the point where I thought I was going to pass out. During stoppages, my breathing would recover pretty quickly, and the next morning I didn't feel nearly as stiff as I normally do after a hard skate.
Now, the next thing I'll tell you is even crazier, and it really could be coincidental but I am playing for a start-up team that was 1-6-0 when I joined. We went 0-5 in my first four games, and we were getting beat badly. Last night we tied 6-6 against the 3rd place team (even leading at one point) and I put up 4 assists (I play D, maybe moving back to forward!). Take that as you may, but for me, I'll be a swisher for life.
I swish 3 times a day, morning, mid-day, and before bed. I'm getting better sleep. My body feels better rested and I'm recovering quicker than I have in the last half-dozen years. I'm jacked! It's given me hope that I can get back to working out and If I can put more into that because my muscles are getting that much-needed oxygen, I’m hopeful I can continue to be competitive for years to come!
Thanks again, Jim. Feel free to share this with others. I truly believe if they become "swishers" everyone can experience a much better quality of life.
All the best,
"Swisher for Life"
