Dear Friends

Can you identify this beautiful creature?

We now have our newest product in our shopping cart, in the warehouse, and ready for shipping—the No. 4 Systemic Booster:  Metabolic Balance.

In order to highlight this very exciting product, I’ve gathered together information from earlier newsletters I’ve written to you about it—consolidating them here.  This time I’ve added some key references.

Why No 4. Systemic Booster:  Metabolic Balance?

In the last decade we have all witnessed the weight gain of our fellow Americans.  According to the latest figures from the CDC under Adult Obesity Facts:  More than one-third of U.S. adults (35.7%) are obese, that’s around 67 million.  Additionally, 65% of Americans (193 million) are overweight.  This, of course, is a very serious public health issue for, as we all know, obesity-related conditions increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and many other disease related conditions.

What is No 4 Systemic Booster?

The No. 4 Systemic Booster:  Metabolic Balance offers you a powerful new tool in your arsenal to battle weight gain, and can be the perfect addition to weight management programs you already have in place.  It is made up of two components:  7-Keto DHEA (50mg per capsule) which is a downstream metabolite of DHEA, and seaweed extracts (125mg per capsule) from two different species of wild brown seaweeds—kelp (Ascophyllum nodosum) and bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosus).

How does it work?

As we age we tend to store more fat, simply because our body is less efficient converting stored body fat to energy.  So then we diet and employ a caloric restriction, but our body, very quickly, slows down its metabolism, which makes it more difficult to loose fat weight.  The good new is that in studies, 7-Keto DHEA and seaweed extract demonstrate support of weight loss as 7-Keto enhances the metabolic rate by promoting thermogenesis (the burning of body fat for energy), while the seaweed polyphenols from kelp and bladderwrack facilitate to slowing down of absorption of carbohydrates from a meal, thereby helping to maintain healthy insulin levels—too high insulin levels pushes the body in the direction of fat storage rather that fat burning.

What is the research supporting No. 4 Systemic Booster?

No. 4 Systemic Booster addresses weight loss issues—the reduced metabolic rate and the rate of absorption of calories—through its two components, 7 Keto DHEA and seaweed extract, by the following actions:

The majority of weight loss is fat loss.

How do I recommend it—what’s its Suggested Use?

  • Take 1 to 2 capsule two times daily, 15 minutes before your two largest meals.

It’s the New Year 2013, and Spring and Summer are coming.  Let’s get fit!!!

Clinical Note:

It certainly is the flu and cold season and a very good Therapeutic Foods drink is to take two capsules of the garlic and pour their powder into a small glass of water.  Remember each capsule contains the equivalent to 4 to 5 cloves of freeze dried whole garlic.  When you dissolve the powder in water you’re forming, in that instant, its powerful antimicrobial agent—allicin.  Then add a heaping teaspoon of the Original Synbiotic Formula to the mix and stir.  It tastes good and it powerfully treats your whole GI tract from top to bottom.

The Last Quiz Answer:

This seal pup is a grey seal.  There are 33 species of seals worldwide, with greys being larger than common seals.  The grey population are growing at 7% per year.

Grey seals mate on land and give birth on land.  The pups form very strong bonds with their mothers through their unique smell and vocalizations.  Grey seals can live to be 46 years old.

Last Friday night on the PBS 6pm news Jeffrey Brown interviewed Al Gore regarding his new book The Future:  Six Drives of Global Change.  I don’t know about you, but I like Gore.  Have a listen here to the Gore Interview with Jeff.  Why not arm yourself with the book.
