Organic Sunscreen!

I met Mr. Pool Party himself this weekend.  What a great product he has created!  You know I’m all about Organic and natural ingredients, especially when applied to our skin.  I learned what Reef Friendly meant and how he has taken his formula to that level.  And what’s EVEN better….it doesn’t go on PASTIE WHITE!  I love that!

Living in Arizona, we get so much “accidental” sun because we see so much of it and get used to it.  Protecting your skins (and eyes) are definitely a must in keeping the youthful look we all long for!

Key Ingredients

CLA:
An omega-6 fatty acid found in grass-fed beef and vegetable oils, CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is among the most extensively studied weight management nutrients. While its exact mechanisms of action have not been pinpointed, CLA is believed to inhibit the “hunger hormone” leptin, promote lipolysis in white adipose tissue, influence insulin sensitivity, reduce fasting blood glucose and optimize resting metabolic rate. CLA is most commonly associated with lean body mass and healthy body composition.

7-Keto® DHEA
Produced by the adrenal glands, Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) hormone starts to decline around age 30, and has been implicated in metabolic slow-down and age-related weight gain. Restoring DHEA through supplementation is believed to promote a youthful hormonal state that is associated with optimal metabolic rate. 7-Keto DHEA is derived from a plant source that has been purified to match the substance naturally produced in the body. Studies suggest that 7-Keto improves the body’s calorie burning ability at the most basic level by increasing resting metabolic rate—the number of calories burned through regular bodily functions such as breathing. 7-Keto is the weight management metabolite of DHEA–a gentler and safer form that supplies nutritional benefits without influencing testosterone or estrogen levels.

Razberi-K® raspberry ketones
Organic phenolic compounds found in raspberries, ketones are believed to optimize breakdown of fat in the body while promoting peak metabolic function. Some early animal research appears to suggest that raspberry ketones may influence the way lipids are metabolized in fat cells; specifically, raspberry ketones are believed to optimize the breakdown of white adipose tissue. Raspberry ketones have also been found to stimulate the secretion of adiponectin, a hormone that regulates fat storage. Research shows a link between higher levels of adiponectin and lower levels of stored fat.

Green Coffee Bean Extract
Unroasted coffee beans retain their green hue and supply bioactive compounds called chlorogenic acids (CGAs) that are usually destroyed in the coffee bean roasting process. The CGAs found in green coffee beans are believed to promote healthy weight management by influencing sugar metabolism. Research has suggested that CGAs may inhibit the hepatic glucose-6-phosphatase enzyme, thereby modulating glucose production and promoting the blood sugar stability that is associated with healthy weight. SlimOne’s green coffee bean extract is standardized to 50% minimum CGAs.
Research
In one study, 20 men and women took either a CLA supplement (0.6mg) or placebo daily while exercising in standardized 90-minute routines three times weekly. After 12 weeks, researchers reported that body fat was found to be significantly reduced in the CLA group, but not in the placebo group.
In one double-blind, placebo-controlled study designed to evaluate long-term effects of CLA supplementation, 180 volunteers took CLA-free fatty acid (FFA), CLA- triacylglycerol, or placebo over the course of one year. At the study’s end, researchers concluded that supplementation with either the FFA or triacylglycerol form of CLA was associated with significant reductions in body fat mass (BFM) and a tendency towards greater lean body mass.

An early study has suggested that 7-Keto may help with resting metabolic rate of overweight adults. In the study, which included 40 subjects, supplementation with 7-Keto was found to significantly increase resting metabolic rate above basal levels in only seven days. Researchers suggested 7-Keto may benefit overweight individuals with low energy expenditure.

Digestive enzymes are a Must especially if you don’t have a Gall Bladder

Digestive Enzymes
Panplex-2 Phase   Integrative Therapeutics
60 count $15.20     180 count $43.40

Are you functioning without a Gall Bladder?  Have you had it removed or any other parts missing due to surgery? Yes, you can live without them, but it hinders your health.  Each organ has a specific roll, and we MUST supplement to help our bodies do what it should naturally.  Especially as we age, we lose 50% HCL every decade, then lose the ability to make more the next decade of our lives.  This is one reason why it’s harder to loss weight as we get older.  Our body simply can’t do it without help.  This is a picture of a current client who started taking digestive enzymes and in a few short days she began to process the food she was eating.  No more “food babies” as I have heard it referred to as, the bloat and pain become so much less.

Panplex 2-Phase is a dual-action formula that provides support for both the gastric and intestinal phases of digestion.† This dual-phase supplement provides support for more complete digestion in both the stomach and intestinal tract. Panplex 2-Phase combines pancreatic enzymes with hydrochloric acid and pepsin for healthy digestion support.† Phase I gastric support includes hydrochloric acid and pepsin.† Phase II intestinal support includes pancreatin and bile salts in a delayed-release matrix designed to protect against deactivation of enzymes by stomach acids.
