Health and performance are two key pillars of living a happy and fulfilled life. Performance is key, especially for athletes. This means being able to access the performance you need at the right moment, as well as to recover quickly. Two keyways to influence the careers of top athletes is to protect their bodies and give them all the vital nutrients and minerals they need.
These athletes compete under a strict regimen of anti- doping regulations - failing to observe these regulations could end their sports careers in an instant.
In short: food is fuel for our bodies. But how can competitive athletes safely and reliably meet their needs for vital nutrients and minerals? That kind of nutrition takes a lot of time (time that takes away from their training). It also takes extensive knowledge about the human body and the latest research.
Our products are built on the foundation of the latest scientific findings, backed by a team of experts that is the only one of its kind in the world. We offer one hundred percent security our athletes can trust - and we have done so for over 20 years.
This PM-International sports catalogue is unique. I don’t know of any other company in the world with such a large portfolio of athletes who are fans of their products and willing to publicly endorse them in this way. And we are only able to include a fraction of all of our FitLine athletes in this catalogue. I am proud to offer you this newest edition of the PM-International sports catalogue. For our athletes, it serves as confirmation that they have the right, reliable partner on their team. For our distribution partners, it is motivation and a tool for inspiring even more athletes and sports fans to try our products.
"I want to wish all of our FitLine athletes a successful 2021!"

Tested, effective nutritional supplements for top performance with FitLine!
The manufacture of the FitLine products is subjected to the strictest international quality and purity controls, as well as to the greatest possible transparency.
There are directives for the ensuring of quality control of the manufacturing processes and environment, for example for the manufacture of medication and effective ingredient substances. The raw materials (and each raw material batch), as well as the finished products, are subjected to microbiological, chemical, organoleptic and physical controls, to ensure the best possible purity and security for the consumer. A durable shelf life and the creation of reference and retention samples are of course taken into consideration. The traceability of the products is ensured for at least three months beyond the expiry date.
PM-International has been collaborating for a long time in research and development with several universities and institutions, such as the Frauenhofer Institute in Europe. Since 2016, a strategic collaboration exists with ‘LIST’ – Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology, in order to push ahead considerably with research and development work, with the aim of developing innovative organic-based nutritional supplements for health, wellness and beauty product lines. The Scientific Advisory Board of experienced experts from various disciplines, a variety
of research and development areas, beginning with the recipes, right through to production. The research and development of innovative product concepts and theonward development of the exclusive NTC® – Nutrition Transport Concept are of course of primary importance.
There also exists a quality control management standard, of which customers can be convinced when inspecting the premises of the suppliers. Thus, a transparent quality control system is ensured in this case.
Testing Concept of the German Federal State Testing Station TÜV SÜD ELAB
TÜV SÜD ELAB GmbH (German Federal State Testing Station TÜV SÜD ELAB) is a well
known and respected state services provider for laboratory analyses, with over 40 year experience of testing foodstuffs, drinking water as well as providing ecological environmental analyses and toxicological testing.
The ‘IFS’ International Featured Standard is applied.

For us, premium means transparency and quality. Because of this, we regularly have
the quality of our products tested by TÜV SÜD ELAB. TÜV SÜD ELAB serves as a global, independent partner with 24,000 employees and 800 branches to complete analyses of FitLine products. Samples are taken at random directly from the central PM-International warehouse. This ensures the integrity of test samples and the independence of testing results. Analyses of select quality parameters completed regularly and independently by TÜV SÜD ELAB supplement our own product controls and help us improve our product quality even more. Selected FitLine products have a web link (QR code) applied to the product label linking to detailed information on the testing plan (testing parameters and frequencies) on the independent TÜV SÜD ELAB website.
PM-International has ascertained, through its many contacts throughout the world of top-performance sport, that there exists ambiguity over the active ingredient substance of ‘caf- feine’, in regard to anti- doping aspects. The ‘WADA’ – World Anti- Doping Agency passed a resolution in September 2003 to the effect that caffeine is no longer on the list of forbidden substances, as of 01 April 2004. The ‘WADA’ decision has been legally recognised as binding in 193 countries by signing the ‘Copenhagen Declaration’.
Why do the FitLine products: PowerCocktail, Activize Oxyplus, Sensitive and Activize® Power Drink, contain ‘caffeine’?
The forementioned FitLine products contain natural caffeine physiologically bound to the tannins in Guarana, which is very well tolerable, because it stimulates lipometabolism and maintains the glycogen muscle reserves against repletion where intensive sporting activities are pursued. The bound form of the substance thus reduces any maximum increase of caffeine concentration, in contrast to free caffeine found in black tea, coffee and other soft- drink beverages.
Caffeine content concentration per drink (information purposes only)
Coffee 60-150 mg per cup
Tee 40-75 mg per cup
Chocolate 20-30 mg per 100 g
Cola beverages 150 mg per litre
RB Energy Drink Austria 532 mg per litre
RB Energy Drink Germany 320 mg per litre
Activize Oxyplus 30 mg per daily ration
Fitness-Drink 0 mg per daily ration
PowerCocktail 30 mg per daily ration
In 2020, as in previous years, over 1,000 anti-doping inspections were conducted on the elite sportspeople who regularly take the FitLine products. In none of these athletes were positive findings ascertained as a result of the use of FitLine products.
Greater safety as a result of tested products

Optimal nutritional supply as key factor
For many elite sportspeople and their coaches, an enhanced nutrition has proved to be the key factor for performance capacity:
Significantly greater resilience
The sportspeople or the officials of their clubs, associations or federations should ask themselves: what about seeking to improve the chances for sporting successes by way of an optimised nutrition with high-grade vital substances?
*Iinternal survey of athletes, teams, coaches, physiotherapists and service personnel.
Professional athletes are dependent for their income on prizes or the contributions of sponsors to finance their expenditure. Financial success is thus only accompanied by sporting success. The FitLine product range is a success- promising capital investment for personal success, from a sporting as well as from an economic perspective.
A capital investment of € 100 to € 200 will assist in best supporting a maximum of performance capacity, to achieve greater and more sporting successes, and thus secure an economic existence in the long term. At the same time, the athlete protects his or her own body, and thus gains significantly greater quality of life.
For the officials responsible for athletes, teams, clubs, associations or federations, entrepreneurial thinking and acting should be essential. In the end, the team has to display sporting successes in order to be marketed as the best possible, and therefore to be able to post the necessarily required income to the accounts.
A point of approach here is presented by the FitLine product range. With a capital investment volume of some € 100 to € 200 per athlete per month, the overall economic results can be significantly improved in the short and long term, independent of the type of sport pursued and the interest of the media. Even on the basis of an increase in performance of only 2 %, the first positive improvement in results will become noticeable within a short time, with which a ‘plus’ in income will be generated. Such a return on investment can then be reinvested in training possibilities, the acquisition of new sponsors or the furtherance of trainees and junior staff.

Mornings (the basic dosage)
PowerCocktail 1 portion sachet or Basics 1 portion sachet, Activize Oxyplus 1 measuring spoon
Preparation: Mix all products in 250 to 400ml still cold water without carbon dioxide (or with a water-fruit juice mixture, dependent on taste).
Consumption recommendation: Before or during breakfast
Tip: Should a training session or competitive activity be engaged upon within 2 hours of breakfast, generating a maximum pulse rate of 80 % during the initial time period of taking the product, it can alternatively be consumed after the conclusion of an intensive activity.
Midday (the basic dosage)
Activize Oxyplus – 1 measuring spoon (or Activize Sensitive according to dosing instructions).
Preparation: Mix in 200 to 300 ml still cold water.
Consumption recommendation: before a midday meal and/or early in the afternoon.
Tip: FitLine Antioxy1 (Zellschutz) can also be added at any time to the drink in the mornings, midday or evenings. Add a dosage of Antioxy1 (Zellschutz) to the Fitness-Drink as well.
Restorate 1 portion sachet and/or 1-3 level measuring spoons (initially or during the first week, start with 1-2 measuring spoons, and then increase the dose.
Preparation: Mix in 200-400 ml of still water and wait until the fizzing stops. Drink immediately after the liquid stops fizzing (important for maximum resorption). The dosage ratio can be increased (water portion) according to taste and tolerability.
Consumption recommendation: Sip the mixture slowly half an hour, or one hour before bedtime over a period of 10 minutes. For people with delicate stomachs, take one measuring spoon of Restorate to begin with, and sip slowly.
Tip: Restorate should not be consumed immediately after intensive activity, but 30 minutes thereafter. After an intensive activity loading, a second portion according to the consumption instructions should be taken. Restorate should not be taken together with Basics or PowerCocktail, because the fibers will interfere with the absorption of the minerals.
The ‘on top’ for sporting competitive activities
Training and competitive activities (performance dosages before, during and after intensive sporting activities with loading)
Take 2 capsules 60 minutes before sporting activities or training with a lot of fluid.
1 portion sachet. Preparation: For activity loadings of up to 90 minutes, mix 1 portion sachet in 500-700 ml still water without carbon dioxide and fill into a drinking bottle. For more intensive and long-lasting activity loading, use 2 portion sachets of Fitness-Drink and fill into a drinking bottle of 1 to 1.5 litres.
Consumption recommendation: Take the fluid in small mouthful portions (for high performance sportspeople, dependent on type of activity, duration and fluid intake requirement), according to the aforementioned preparation, and consume during training and completive activities.
For rapid recuperative regeneration after intensive loadings during sporting activities. Begin with
1 portion sachet or 1-3 level measuring spoons disolved in 200 to 400 ml still water (initially, begin in the first week with 1-2
N.B.: Prepare Restorate as described before and then sip over a period of 10 minutes, commencing 1 hour after the conclusion of the intensive loading sportingactivity, for maximum regeneration as an alkaline buffer. measuring spoons and gradually increase the dosage.
Tip: If additional liquids are required, drink a fruit juice and mineral water blend (e.g. 1 part apple juice to 3 parts mineral water) or fruit teas.
N.B.: These are only recommendations, which have proved themselves excellent with many elite athletes in practise. But essentially such recommendations should be tried out in training and adjusted to suit personal requirements. The recommendations can of course vary depending on the loading intensity, bodyweight and age, as well as according to the type of sport.
Increased fat burning
When you start playing sports, you need your body to deliver energy
right away. Carbohydrates you eat or carbohydrates stored in your body provide the quickest energy availability. Only after consuming its carbohydrates does your body mobilise its fat reserves, which it needs for longer- term endurance activities. Burning fat serves as a primary source of energy, since fat stores much more energy than carbohydrates. The advantage of maximizing fat burning is that you have more energy for athletic activities for a longer period of time. One way to encourage fat burning is intensive endurance training, although this training should not be too strenuous.
Increasing your lactate threshold
The lactate threshold is an indicator of an athlete’s endurance level. Up to this threshold, lactate is produced and broken down in equal amounts. It is difficult to train for very long above this threshold, as muscles “over acidify”. If a person has a high lactate threshold, they will be able to run marathons faster, for instance. The only way to increase your threshold is through slow and targeted increases in training capacity.
Increase performance with FitLine Munogen and Activize
A user study of FitLine Munogen and FitLine Activize Oxyplus has clearly demonstrated
the key role nutrition plays as a compliment to the right training regimen. 14 endurance cyclists took Munogen 30min before training and Activize in the morning and before training, over a period of 4 weeks. The athletes were good or very good recreational athletes, primarily male and between 40 and 55 years of age.
The results: On average, participants saw a 24 percent improvement in maximum fat burning and an average lactate threshold increase of 7.2 percent. This means that the period during which their bodies were delivering energy from fat was extended, allowing them to maintain a higher level of performance for longer.
Conclusion: The right nutrients can be used to support and improve targeted energy delivery. FitLine Munogen and Activize Oxyplus deliver significant results.
