My Living Optimizing Protocol: A Guide to Elevating Your Wellness Journey

As the New Year rolls around, many of us feel the urge to make resolutions and set goals. But I find myself reflecting not just on intention setting, but rather having a sense of purpose.

My wellness journey, which began almost 15 years ago, reached a turning point in 2023 and has evolved into a life philosophy that I am finally ready to share with others.

I believe the intrinsic importance of health could serve as a catalyst for open discussions about choices and subtle adjustments in our daily routines that can lead to long-lasting positive transformations in both bodies and minds.

I've always been passionate about sports, and there were times in my life when my training mirrored that of a professional athlete. I worked out brutally, intensively and frequently. For people around me, I was in prime shape - fit and strong. But despite the good outward appearances, I sensed something was amiss.

In 2010, I shifted my focus, moving away from the prevailing fitness and bodybuilding doctrines that seemed too one-size-fits-all. I just realized how overly generic and neglectful of individual traits and personal goals they were. It became clear to me that health should always be the main priority over extreme routines.

This “Aha!” moment reshaped my training and dietary philosophy. It laid the groundwork for what I now call "My Living Optimizing Protocol," ( the MLO Protocol) founded on the principle of consistency over intensity. I advocate for small doses of supplements spread across extended periods, allowing the body to assimilate what it needs naturally, without overwhelming it. Periodically, I fine-tune this protocol to harmonize with changing seasons or to cater to my current training objectives.

In my quest for the optimal holistic approach, I delved into the exploration of ingredient combinations, meticulously determining the most effective times for consumption and identifying foods that enhance their impact. Collaborating with our research and development team at MLO Nutrition, I brought my supplement designs to life. Presently, all products featured in the MLO protocol are developed by us, offering a comprehensive resource on our website for those looking to embark on a similar journey.

Over the past decade, I've rigorously tested and validated this protocol every single day, experiencing not only enhanced fitness level but also a profound sense of rejuvenation and well-being. By transparently sharing the complete list of supplements I incorporate, my mission is to show that there is a better way, an alternative path that avoids the extremely harmful trend of healthy people relying on pharmaceutical products for anti-aging purposes.

Our bodies are designed to cope with the wear and tear of everyday life. They are resilient and all we need to do is listen for their warnings and provide them with the right support. I believe that a gradual and sustainable approach is the key to long-term success. Quick fixes may temporarily mask issues, but they fail to address the underlying causes.

Finally, I want to highlight once again the importance of the five pillars I discussed in my previous editorial piece. Good nutrition, regular physical activity, quality sleep, and balanced mental health are key for a healthy life. Without these, any supplement routine is likely a waste of time and money.

I have observed remarkable benefits from following the MLO Protocol because in order to ensure maximum absorption of its valuable ingredients, I prepare my body in advance by creating a calorie deficit through high-intensity training or fasting. On days I happen to indulge (like every normal person) in junk foods, I skip the protocol. It's a simple recognition that a belly full of chips and chocolates won't absorb much else since it's already in a state of excess.

The MLO Protocol I'm about to share is tailored to my age, fitness goals, physical activity, nutritional needs, health condition, and family medical history. Although it is customized specifically for me, I believe it can offer some useful insights into a daily routine aimed at a healthy and active life.

I hope the visual guide below will serve as a valuable tool for your own wellness journey and as a reminder that small changes can lead to big results.

Here's a detailed breakdown of the MLO Protocol:


• MLO Omega-3 (3000 mg total from 3 gel capsules)

• MLO SPACE Resveratrol (500 mg)

• MLO SPACE L-Glutathione (500 mg)

• MLO SPACE A11 Super Antioxidant

- Pro tip:  To maximize the absorption of antioxidants, I take MLO SPACE A11 either with a spoon of yogurt or a couple of berries or a slice of apple

• MLO SPACE NAD+ (100 mg sublingual tablet)

- Note: I place one sublingual NAD+ tablet under my tongue and allow it to dissolve before swallowing for improved absorption

• Before breakfast:  MLO Optimal Glucose Support

- Note: As part of my intermittent fasting, I sometimes skip breakfast and don't take MLO Optimal Glucose Support on those days.  

• Morning Shake:  MLO Multi Collagen Pro

- Pro tip: When possible, I prefer to use unflavored powder supplements

• MLO Creatine Monohydrate (5 g)

• MLO SPACE OneBiotic SF1 (10g)

- Pro tip: I take one scoop (10 g) of MLO OneBiotic SF1 every morning for an antioxidant and detox boost.


• Before lunch: MLO SPACE OneBiotic or MLO Maximum Probiotic Charge and MLO Optimal Glucose Support + MLO Silymarin Prime

- Pro tip: One of the ingredients in MLO Glucose Support is berberine. It's interesting to note that berberine absorption can be enhanced by Silymarin, which keeps the P-glycoprotein occupied and prevents berberine from being extruded from the cell. Essentially, Silymarin works as a bioenhancer of berberine, helping it to be absorbed more effectively.

- Note:  I take MLO Optimal Glucose Support before each meal due to a genetic predisposition to diabetes

• After lunch:  MLO 24/7 Multivitamins or herb-based supplements like MLO Tribulus Prime

Afternoon Workout:

• Pre-workout: 5 g MLO Creatine Monohydrate and MLO EAA Force

• Post-workout: MLO 100% Iso Platinum Protein

Evening Routine and Sleep:

• Before diner - MLO Optimal Glucose Support

• After diner - MLO Testo Fuel

• Before sleep: MLO Optimal Sleep Recovery and MLO Magne Amino Armour
