As many of our Go Healthy Natural community members are setting new health goals for 2018, they are asking us about tips for losing those holiday pounds.
We firmly believe that farm to table, raw organic fruits and vegetables are the key to optimum health and well-being. Try not to focus on losing weight, but rather eating better quality raw fruits, vegetables and lean protein. Eat your biggest meal early in the day and your smallest meal at dinner time. How you shop will determine how healthy you will become. Remember, It's a lifestyle change, not a diet.
We believe the 3 Keys to great health are:
What foods you eat, how you digest your food and how you eliminate your food. Go Healthy Natural Supplements support all 3 keys.
Let's start with our Liquid Multivitamin with Minerals' premium ingredients:
Bromelain (Pineapple) is used for reducing swelling (inflammation) and helping the body get rid of fat.
Curcumin, a substance in turmeric, may help to reduce inflammation.
Prebiotics: Another benefit of this short-chain structure is that it tends to reduce gas and bloating thanks to its accelerated break down. A diet rich in prebiotics, both from natural sources or supplements, can help balance digestion, absorption, and immune health.
Probiotics: Gas, bloating, constipation and diarrhea are all common signs that your gut microbiome (balance between good bacteria vs. bad bacteria) may be out of balance. Probiotics help reduce bloating, gas and constipation.
Magnesium (Magnesium Citrate – Red Algae) Supports Detoxifying: Rich in chlorophyll (the pigment that makes some seaweeds green) which is a powerful, natural detoxifyer which may help to draw out waste products from the body.
Vegetarian Digestive Enzyme Blend: Digestive enzymes break down food particles for energy. Amylase: Carbohydrate digestion, Protease: Protein digestion, Lipase: Fat digestion, Cellulase: Fiber digestion, Lactase: Lactose (milk sugar) digestion.
Manganese (Glycinate Chelate) Supports: Healthy immune system, protein and fat metabolism, healthy nerves, and blood sugar regulation.
Choline Supports: hormone production, fat and cholesterol metabolism.
Inositol Supports: formation of lecithin and the metabolism of fat and cholesterol. May help reduce cholesterol levels.
Biotin -Supports: fatty acid production; in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins; and in the utilization of the other B vitamins.
Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin) Supports: digestion, absorption of foods, and the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) Supports: carbohydrate metabolism, Energy, growth and proper digestion.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) Supports: the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.
Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) Supports: the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins; and in the production of hydrochloric acid for the digestive system.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) Supports: vitamin utilization and helps to convert fats, carbohydrates and proteins into energy.
Strawberries: Support: “purifying the blood,” stimulating metabolism, and supporting “natural weight loss.”
Selenium (Chelate) Supports: a significant role in regulating the effects of thyroid hormone on fat metabolism.
Next time we'll focus on the exercise and working out part of the equation.
You will shed those holiday pounds and detoxify your body. You will not focus on losing weight, but rather eating better quality raw fruits, vegetables and lean protein. You're making a lifestyle change, not going on a diet.
Happy and Healthy New Year to You and Your Family!
