Ask Our Support Team
How do you guarantee potency?

We do all of the work, from research and development to production and shipping, in-house. This means we know exactly what goes into every single supplement and powder we sell.

Where is the expiration date on the product?

D.O.M. (Date of Manufacture) is the new way that the FDA has asked all supplement companies to display dates onto our products, instead of expiration dates. All of our products have a general 2-year expiration date from the D.O.M. Although after these 2 years, the product doesn't go bad or cause harm, they simply start to lose potency.‍

I get an upset stomach every time I take Optimal Acute. Is this normal, and should I stop taking it?

Optimal Acute can sometimes cause an upset stomach due to the high amount of protease plant enzymes in it. This is normal and is also a sign that Acute is working. To overcome the pain and discomfort, you can take anything with carbs or take our product Optimal 1 Digestion with Optimal Acute.

I still experience pain after taking Acute. Does this mean it's not working?

Acute is not like over-the-counter painkillers where it'll get rid of the pain and inflammation immediately or quickly. Over-the-counter drugs often hide or mask the pain, plus they cause damage to vital organs such as our liver. If your body has high amounts of protein, Acute may be working on those areas rather than areas of interest where we need it the most. Our body utilizes protease by sending it to areas with high amounts of proteins. A nutritional diet while taking Acute will help the formula work more effectively in the areas of our body that need it most.

How does Acute help with scar tissue?

Scar tissue is often composed of proteins. Enzymes in Acute work to digest proteins in the scar tissue. Too much scar tissue can lead to a condition called fibrosis.

Can I take Acute while taking other blood thinner products?

No. We strongly urge you to take caution while using Acute when you are taking other blood thinners or to ask a health professional first before taking Acute. The formula of Acute contains a natural blood thinner. For this reason, we advise that you do not take it if you are currently taking other blood thinner products.

Would Acute work on bug bites?

Absolutely! Toxic substances from poisonous insects and animals are mostly composed of proteins. The high amount of protease plant enzymes in Acute work great to break down and digest those proteins. If bitten by a poisonous insect or animal, we still urge you to get medical attention if needed.

How does Acute help with headaches and migraines?

The protease increases blood flow which relieves headaches by increasing blood flow to the brain and helping with the pain receptors there. As the protease digests protein debris, pain is reduced.

Optimal Acute


Nutritionally Supports Inflammation Reduction & Fast Healing

The ingredients are proven to improve back strain, disc pain, sciatica, whiplash, atherosclerosis, and edema, and have been shown to be particularly beneficial for sports injuries and recovery from accidents and surgery, helping you heal up to twice as fast. This product is used by people all over the world.

Nutritionally Supports Inflammation Reduction

The inflammatory response is a defense mechanism that evolved in higher organisms to protect them from infection and injury. Its purpose is to localize and eliminate the injurious agent and to remove damaged tissue components so that the body can begin to heal.

The response consists of redness, heat, swelling, and pain. Redness is caused by the dilation of small blood vessels in the area of injury. Heat results from increased blood flow through the area. Fever is brought about by chemical mediators of inflammation and contributes to the rise in temperature at the injury. Swelling is caused primarily by the accumulation of fluid outside the blood vessels. The pain stems from both the swelling and release of chemicals that induce inflammation.

The most important feature of inflammation is the accumulation of white blood cells at the injury site. So, yes, this means inflammation is an immune response. It also means your body is trying to repair itself. When you use NSAIDs to suppress inflammation, you suppress the healing process as well.

NSAIDS & Inflammation and Healing

NSAIDS are Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatories, like ibuprofen, naproxen, etc. The problem is they often do more harm than good. They are sold over-the-counter under commonly known brandnames such as Motrin, Advil, Aspirin, Daypro, and so on. They are also available as prescription-strength anti-inflammatories.

NSAIDs are administered to control acute inflammation and relieve pain. However, they achieve this by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, the chemical that activates the inflammation response. Prostaglandins are also necessary for pain, fever, protecting your stomach and intestinal lining, promote blood clotting, and promote normal kidney function.

When people take these drugs, they control inflammation and decrease pain, but the muscle goes into a non-regenerative phase. In other words, NSAIDs interfere with healing and recovery. Also, many reports have shown that NSAIDs may damage the liver and kidneys, and disrupt the stomach’s mucosal lining, predisposing it to acute gastritis and ulceration.

So, when NSAIDs inhibit prostaglandin production, your pain and inflammation go away, but all these other functions are thrown off-balance, which explains all the side effects and warnings that come with taking these drugs.

Optimal Acute was proven to produce the fastest healing time and reduced swelling just as effectively as NSAIDs.

NSAIDs Do More Harm Than Good

NSAIDs Do More Harm Than Good

More and more research comes out every year, exposing more ways this type of medication harms your body. Research shows NSAIDs cause stomach problems, muscle loss, ulcers, fertility issues, and more. NSAIDs don’t promote relief or healing.

Inflammation makes way for healing. So, when you take NSAIDs, you completely shut down your natural inflammatory response. Unlike proteolytic enzymes, which inhibit only the “bad” prostaglandins, aspirin and other NSAIDS inhibit all prostaglandins. They inhibit the enzyme called cyclooxygenase. This means you heal SLOWER than if you took nothing.

In human studies, NSAIDs have been shown to accelerate the radiographic progression of osteoarthritis of the knee and hip. For those using NSAIDs compared to the patients who do not use them, joint replacements occur earlier and more quickly and frequently.

Massive NSAID use in osteoarthritic patients since their introduction over the past forty years is one of the main causes of the rapid rise in the need for hip and knee replacements, both now and in the future. Simply put, NSAID use actually causes degeneration of cartilage, ligaments and tendons.

Chronic intake of NSAIDs causes an estimated 41,000 hospitalizations and 3,300 deaths each year among older adults. This includes ulcers, kidney failure, meningitis, heart attack, and heart failure. A cohort study of older adults found that NSAIDS were significantly associated with an increased risk of admission for heart failure as compared to those not taking NSAIDs.

Proteolytic Enzymes & Inflammation and Healing

Studies show you can heal 33% faster with this holistic anti-inflammatory. Optimal Acute offers a safe and effective alternative to synthetic painkillers through heavily researched ingredients proven to reduce swelling and heal faster than NSAIDs.

Acute is the safe replacement for NSAIDS. Not only does it lack the negative side effects commonly associated with them, like liver and kidney damage, you will heal faster. Research and testing have shown these ingredients to be extremely effective in healing gout and killing harmful bacteria and viruses while letting the good bacteria go on keeping you healthy.

Protease is where the magic happens in this formula. Its main function is to digest proteins. When injury occurs, proteins break off from the injury site and float around. Protease increases blood flow and digests protein debris, which in turn reduces inflammation and pain.

The enzymes also reduce inflammation while antioxidants from copper, zinc and manganese help stabilize cell walls, thus decreasing further swelling and increasing healing. In addition, the minerals help with wound repair and ensure optimal delivery of each of the nutrients contained in this remarkable formula.

Optimal Acute is the first place to turn for safe and effective relief from inflammation and pain.
