Peak Performance Pack

Freiburg Study proves significant whole-body benefits

Melaleuca Peak Performance Pack Freiburg Study

Why Freiburg? Freiburg, Germany, is home to one of the oldest and most esteemed scientific communities in the world. Nineteen Nobel laureates hail from Freiburg. And its history of scientific excellence stretches back to 1457 with the establishment of Freiburg University—which today remains one of the most distinguished and leading-edge research universities in multiple areas, including biomedicine.

It was only in Freiburg where Melaleuca found the specialized instruments, facilities, and expert scientists necessary to evaluate the in-body benefits of supplementing with the Peak Performance Pack.* In fact, Melaleuca commissioned the pioneering researcher who invented the scientific device capable of measuring free radicals in a live human body. Although not a Freiburg University study, the expertise of the area and labs associated with the university were necessary for the clinical analysis of the research.

First-of-its-kind research

The Freiburg Study protocol measured more than 25 key health markers in humans, including difficult-to-obtain data like resistance to induced inflammation, circulating free radicals, mitochondrial free radical activity, and rate of oxygen consumption by blood cells. All of which paint a more detailed picture of what effect supplements can have in a live human body.

The results are profound!

Melaleuca knows of nothing that compares. To our knowledge (and we have researched this), no nutritional supplement has ever produced these kinds of results in the human body. Nothing even comes close!

The Freiburg Study was conducted with 48 human subjects of various ages. To be included in the study, participants were evaluated on their cholesterol measurements, triglycerides, blood pressure, blood sugar, and weight. As with the general population, many exhibited the characteristics of metabolic syndrome—meaning their numbers were elevated but still within a normal range. The testing was conducted before taking the Peak Performance Pack, one hour after taking the pack, after taking the pack for 6 weeks consistently, and after taking the pack for 12 weeks consistently. Some of the key indicators of health measured before and after light exercise included the following:

  • Free radical activity
  • Cholesterol
  • Blood fat
  • Blood pressure
  • C-reactive protein (heart health)
  • Heart rate
  • Glucose levels
  • Inflammation

The Freiburg Study showed significant improvements across several key measures within one hour of taking the pack (reduction in free radicals, heart rate doesn’t raise as high during exercise [greater efficiency], improved resistance to inflammation, and significantly reduced glycemic spikes after meals). Even greater improvements were seen after 6 weeks of taking the pack, and the greatest level of improvement was observed after taking the pack for 12 weeks.* Benefits in as little as 60 minutes! For nearly a century, supplement manufacturers have been saying that the benefits are strictly long range—that the true benefits of the nutrition they offer will take years to truly manifest. Melaleuca broke that mold with its 90-Day Challenge—promising you could feel a difference within 90 days. But now Melaleuca takes that promise where it has never been before. The Freiburg Study shows that many of the incredible benefits of the Peak Performance Pack are measurable in the body in as little as one hour! Think about that—your health begins to improve within just 60 minutes!

A Closer Look At Free Radical Damage

The damage free radicals create throughout the body is random. Millions of molecules are affected every second. But whether or not that damage impacts your health depends on the function of the molecule. Many molecules can be damaged without any consequence. Others are essential to your continued good health. Of course, the greater the number of excess free radicals present, the greater the chances for significant damage.

The amount of damage done when a free radical steals an electron from an adjacent molecule depends completely on the function of the molecule. For example, if an electron is stolen from a glucose molecule in your bloodstream, the damage will have little to no impact at all. However, if the affected molecule is part of a cell membrane somewhere in your body, significant damage may be done— perhaps causing the cell to age prematurely. If the molecule makes up part of the DNA of a cell, the free radical damage could cause the DNA of the cell to mutate, potentially leading to serious health problems.

Consider a golf ball dropped from an airplane at 40,000 feet. A single golf ball, dropped from an airplane at that altitude, will probably not do any damage to the ground below. The odds are it will fall harmlessly into some farmer’s field or land quietly somewhere in a forest. But it could, by some improbable chance, hit someone’s house, someone’s car, or worse— land squarely on someone’s head! The damage would be terrible! But most likely, it would land harmlessly and do no damage at all.

But if you were to drop a bucket of golf balls, the chances of one of those golf balls doing damage is greatly increased. And if you were to dump a semitruck full of golf balls, the likelihood increases even more. And if you dump a trainload of golf balls, it is quite likely that at least a few of the golf balls will do some serious damage to something.

So it is with free radicals. The greater the number of free radicals, the greater the likelihood of serious damage. The goal is to decrease the total amount of free radical activity, thereby decreasing the likelihood of meaningful damage.

Minor radicals do major damage

  • When free radicals steal electrons from DNA molecules, they can cause the DNA molecules to mutate.
  • Free radicals can damage lipid components in the blood.
  • Free radicals can also negatively impact proteins by altering their structure and compromising their function.

This is especially dangerous since many proteins serve as critical enzymes within the body.

Powerful, unparalleled results.

In the simplest terms, health can be broken down into broad categories that represent the interconnected bodily systems that make up our intricate human anatomy. Though further research is planned, the Peak Performance Pack has already demonstrated incredible, measurable benefits in the key categories of holistic health: heart health, metabolic health, and cellular health.

Improved Heart Health


Improved Heart Health

Cholesterol and triglyceride levels dropped significantly, especially in those studied with normal but elevated levels of cholesterol, allowing us to state that the pack helps:

  • Maintain healthy cholesterol levels within the normal range*
  • Maintain healthy triglyceride levels within the normal range*

Blood pressure—both systolic and diastolic—remained stable for those already in a healthy range and dropped significantly for those studied with elevated levels. The major metabolite responsible for maintaining healthy blood pressure levels—nitric oxide, a known vasodilator—nearly doubled. This leads us to conclude that the pack helps:

  • Maintain blood pressure already in a healthy range*
  • Boost the healthy production of circulating nitric oxide in the blood*
Improved Metabolic Health


Improved Metabolic Health

The spike of blood glucose after a high-sugar meal was significantly lower after participants started taking the Peak Performance Pack and the body’s insulin response was significantly lower. We may now conclude that the pack:

  • Helps your body more efficiently utilize blood sugar*
  • Helps support normal insulin response in healthy individuals*
Improved Cellular Health


Improved Cellular Health

As participants continued taking the Peak Performance Pack, the body’s ability to efficiently produce energy increased. To exert the same amount of physical effort, the heart did not need to beat as fast, and all cells were able to produce the required amount of energy without demanding additional oxygen. At the same time, we observed that the spike of free radicals that typically accompanies physical exertion was decreased dramatically. Additionally, inflammatory activity decreased while resistance to inflammation was significantly improved. The Peak Performance Pack also:

  • Helps support efficient cellular energy utilization*
  • Helps promote healthy free radical balance in the body*
  • Promotes a healthy inflammatory response in healthy individuals*
  • Boosts the healthy production of circulating nitric oxide in the blood*

    Good write up want to receive more articles.

  2. Chris on January 7, 2015 at 8:55 am

    Can you provide a link to the study report? Lots of claims here without any numbers.

  3. Ann Shelton on January 7, 2015 at 11:11 am

    Your health is your wealth!

    It would be very helpful if the actual lab was named and the persons or group conducting the study and the technical results made available as opposed to a summary of the results. Also the name of the researcher who was commissioned and when the study was done and more details about the test subjects. A lab in a city in Germany could encompass almost anything. I would find the technical details very helpful in promoting this product.

  5. L. Manser on January 7, 2015 at 3:30 pm

    Great writeup that should help many understand the merit of our nutrition. Would like to see more of these articles.

  6. Lola M. Marsal on January 7, 2015 at 5:55 pm

    Do we know when more results will be published?

  7. Dalil on January 16, 2015 at 10:37 am

    Great article.. Show it to my family doctor he was impressed and asked me to come today after 24 hours to do blood work.. I can’t wait to be able to share my results in 6 weeks..
    Thank you so much for beeing the leader in the industry and making sure we only have the best

    Perci, my husband, started working graveyard for the past 2 nights, 7AM to 7PM. He underwent a cataract operation on both eyes last December 27 and January 02 respectively. He was in day shift for two years. He started taking the Peak Performance for Men for the past 2 days. He was so impressed with the Frieburg Study that he wants to personally try it. He monitors his BP religiously morning and evening. He is anxious to share with me that his BP is really good for the past 2 days.It ranges from 110-120/75-80, he used to have high blood pressure. He is active at work and he feels good, not sleepy, not feeling tired. His eyes is recuperating fast. As a Respiratory Therapist, you can just imagine the flow of work. The science behind the product is indeed a revelation, but knowing that it truly works inside and out is OUTSTANDING! Thank you Melaleuca! We got to share this to all our friends and love ones.

    I have been taking Peak Performance Mens 50+ Nutrition Pack and GC control since August.Yesterday, I go results from my last blood work.
    My glucose level has dropped from 103-97. It was as high as 106 last year…below 99 is the goal.
    Cholesterol,HDL,LDL and triglycerides levels all good. Doctor is taking me off my cholesterol medication.
    C-Reactive protein is now in normal zone which was high last year,
    Will have blood work again in May to check the levels.

    Are the new packs gluten-free? Do they contain dairy, corn or rice starches? My family ar e on strict diets because of autoimmune diseases, thyroid and celiac disease complications. Before I buy the new supplements I just need to confirm the above. Thanks

    I just began using the peak performance brain health and the box does state that they’re gluten free, not sure about the starches and dairy.

  17. KC on February 6, 2015 at 9:43 am

    When is soon?

  18. Jemnifer on February 20, 2015 at 8:38 am

    Dr. Bruno Fink is the name of the Free Radical Researcher

  19. Kyle on February 23, 2015 at 3:00 pm

  20. Art Gill on March 13, 2015 at 8:56 am will get you the information you are looking for.

  21. Annette on April 7, 2015 at 9:51 am

    Do people ask Walmart where they get their supplies from when its a generic brand? Or do they just buy it and take their word for it that it works? IJS

    But with us so many questions are asked When, Where and WHY? We give a 100% money back guarantee on all of our products. So Now What?

  22. wendy on May 11, 2015 at 2:20 am

    I am very interested in what your doctor said after 24 hrs. OR after 6 weeks. I personally dont like supplements because exercise and diet can make you look good. But I want to take the easy way and take this for my benefit. Is this supplement truly helpful? Should I even start taking it. I appreciate if you’d reply.

  23. Albert on August 21, 2015 at 1:47 pm

    In this life we are required to do something to get something results come from the effort put into it. We must be willing to try something before we can even began to find out if it works for us or not Bottom line if it doesn’t work send it back you get your money back.
    Thank for the information
    Now we have a choice try it or not to try it

  24. Albert Davis on October 5, 2015 at 10:16 am

    Will be glad to share with anyone who needs more information. I’ve been on the products since June 2015, am 63 years old and have the energy of my early 20’s. seems hard to believe but it is the truth

  25. Wayne Wasserman on February 4, 2016 at 3:24 pm

    I have been in the nutritional supplement industry for nearly 23 years…and it all started with Melaleuca in 1993 ( I found their Vitality Pak very interesting).

    I can tell you that VERY FEW products that contain multiple nutrients ever undergo such scientific scrutiny (even the pathetic Centrum and Bayer One-A-Day).

    If I still owned a vitamin / nutrition store, I’d have a section dedicated solely to these Peak Performance Packs…and I’d be selling a TON of them.

    Melaleuca is a truly legitimate “Wellness Company”, and is as good a “Network Marketing Company” as there is anywhere in the world.

  26. Curtis Andrews on August 11, 2016 at 2:10 pm

    Is there a Freiburg Study video other that the one on youtube by Nathan Osborne?

  27. Reyes on August 28, 2016 at 8:02 pm

    I just started to use Peak performance pack, Inuse to run since 10 years, usually my heart rate is 60-55 bpm, after I took the pm pack I felt the diference , the product is great. Thanks Melaleuca

  28. John Wright on April 11, 2017 at 7:20 pm

    I don’t think I’m missing any nutrition with this complete pak.

  29. Traci on October 29, 2017 at 10:08 pm

    What were the results of your blood work. Do you remember from almost 3 years ago? Thank you. Really want to try it and would love to know your results.

  30. Sherri Burich on March 31, 2018 at 7:36 pm

    Can you tell me what the ingredients are, specifically, the herbs?
    I was given a sample of the AM and PM pack, but no specific ingredients.


  31. Nancy Waterfield on November 18, 2019 at 12:45 pm

    Are the blood tests the same for us and Canada
    Seems to me the readings are different can you please tell me how to adjust the cdn results to be same as us ??
