Charlie Engle, Ultra-marathoner and Go Condition Ambassador
By Charlie Engle
Years ago, I made some big decisions about my nutrition and lifestyle, especially as it pertains to how I eat. One core part of my strategy is to eat a very clean, plant-based diet, avoiding processed foods and too much sugar. I also focus on sleep and hydration because all plans fall apart for me if I don’t do the basics.
I don’t generally take too many supplements apart from turmeric and magnesium and one called Go Condition. Go Condition is unlike almost any other supplement I know of, because it is a “non-nutrient” supplement, derived from flavonoids which are found in the colorful skins and leaves of plants. These compounds work to induce a small dose of inflammatory stress in my body that primes it for everything from the stresses of everyday life to the stresses of my 5.8 Global Adventure Series.
This supplement came to my attention in mid 2019, a doctor friend of mine, a researcher at North Appalachian State University, asked me if I had heard of Go Condition. He explained the science behind it and I was intrigued. As it turned out, Quercetin is the foundation of Go Condition, along with bilberries and green tea extract. This powerful combination of flavonoids made an immediate impact on me. It served me well last year as I crossed Africa and climbed Kilimanjaro. It’s also made a huge difference in my battle with Covid-19.
For years, I’ve really focused my attention on reducing inflammation and I’m a real advocate for Go Condition because it does that and much more. I was so impressed that I approached the company to see if I could become an ambassador for the brand.
I genuinely believe this supplement is a necessary and valuable addition to anyone’s health strategy. What happens to us in life isn’t nearly as important as what we do about it.
