Weight Less For The Holidays

December 11, 2019

Dear Friends

The holidays are here and once again we face sumptuous meals and sugary treats.

And as usual, we make another vow that comes next January (the new year) we are going to eat better foods, lose weight, and even exercise. It is the holidays after all!

This is exactly where our Weight Less comes in handy.

WL Holiday

This exceptionally smart formula, taken 15 to 20 minutes before we partake in the fun and dazzle of holiday treats and meals, lowers the glycemic load of complex and simple carbohydrates for better insulin management, as well as offers a power-filled phenolic activity for antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect (Roy et al., 2011).

Comprised of wild-crafted brown seaweed, Ascophyllum nodosum (kelp) and Fucus vesiculosus (bladderwrack), along with 7-Keto DHEA, Weight-Less is unique and effective.

For many decades, 7-Keto has been shown an ability to turn on fat burning mechanism and offer an effective and safe way to lose weight (Bobyleva et al., 1997). Together, with the extracts of kelp and bladderwrack seaweeds, the Weight Less offers sustained energy level throughout the day as it modulates carbohydrate digestion and absorption for better weight management and metabolic health ( Gabbia et al., 2017; Catarino et al., 2017).

Weight Less is a smart formula:

WL F

Take 1-2 capsules before a treat or a large meal. Take 1 capsule each morning with 1 capsule of Energy (ultra-minerals and apple extract) to boost energy levels, repeat in the afternoon.

Dear Friends

Chronic Disease is the new norm.  We see it all around us:  obesity, metabolic syndrome, fatty liver, diabetes, CVD, cancer, COPD, asthma, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, autism, IBD, IBS,  auto immune disease, arthritis, UTI, and many more.

Doctors, you are our heroes on the frontline in the battle for your patients’ health, and for helping them to prevent their occurrence in the first place.

Key finding in research for the root cause of these chronic illnesses: a continual low-grade inflammation (LGI), termed by scientists as “inflammageing” (Franceschi & Campisi, 2014).

Therapeutic Food Supplements were designed with powerful plant polyphenols, pedigreed probiotic strains  (with their metabolites and microRNAs), and key nutraceuticals to supports the reduction of LGI.  The results are easily measured:  lowering inflammatory markers.

Summary of the Therapeutic Food Offering:

Polyphenol products:  Garlic (antimicrobial, blood pressure regulation), Blueberry Extract (brain and nerve regeneration), Glucosinolates & Sulforaphanes (liver support), Chlorella (absorption of heavy metals and toxins), Be Regular (fiber from ancient seeds – a must have), and Phyto Power (DNA integrity).

Probiotic Products: Supernatant Synbiotic, and Original Synbiotic. Both powerfully effective for GI health

Probiotic + Polyphenols: High ORAC Synbiotic (post antibiotic therapy), Beta Glucan Synbiotic (Cardiovascular and GI support), No. 7 Systemic Booster (designed to combat the root cause of chronic illnesses), and Cranberry Pomegranate Synbiotic (UTI, and prostate support).

Nutraceuticals:  Fructo Borate Complex (bone and joints), Chromium (blood sugar control), Energy (plant ultra minerals), No. 7 (B12, Folate, chromium, D3, and Fructo Borate), Weight-Less (7 keto).

Nutraceuticals + Polyphenols:  Energy (increase ATP levels), Weight-less (weight loss and blood sugar control), and Chromium with high active Beet Root (blood sugar control, increase circulation), No 7 Systemic Booster.

All of our plant materials are eco-farmed, or wild-crafted, selected for their exceptional high-actives, many of which we standardize.  There are no excipients in our Therapeutic Food Supplement (e.g. flowing agents, sweeteners, natural flavors, emulsifiers, etc.).  We are purists in this regard, wanting to give you absolutely the strongest possible natural product for you restoring health.

Dear Friends

Reduce blood sugar levels with polyphenols!

Americans have a serious problem with chronic hyperglycemia.

Untreated hyperglycemia can cause long-term complications. These include:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Nerve damage (neuropathy)
  • Kidney damage (diabetic nephropathy) or kidney failure
  • Damage to the blood vessels of the retina (diabetic retinopathy), potentially leading to blindness
  • Clouding of the normally clear lens of your eye (cataract)
  • Feet problems caused by damaged nerves or poor blood flow that can lead to serious infections, and in some severe cases, amputation
  • Bone and joint problems
  • Skin problems, including bacterial infections, fungal infections and non-healing wounds
  • Teeth and gum infections

What are its causes?  There are multiple, and some may surprise you.

The diet for many Americans contains an overwhelming amount of carbohydrates, with a high proportion coming from added sugars.  To give you an idea, the annual added sugar intake has been reported to range from over 50 lb (median value) in the Dutch population to 142 lb in Americans (Wells & Buzby, 2008).

This means that almost every meal is followed by hyperglycemic conditions.  Recent studies indicate that hyperglycemia induces overproduction of Superoxide Anion (O2-) by the mitochondrial electron transport chain (Node & Inoue, 2009).  O2- is known as a primary free radical, because it converts either spontaneously or through enzymatic assistance into H2O2, peroxynitrite or hydroxyl radical (Gutowski & Kowalczyk, 2014).

Intervention aiming to reduce postprandial hyperglycemia are thus believed to benefit health through prevention of oxidative stress from glucose-overloaded mitochondria.

No. 4 Systemic Booster: Weight-less accomplishes this in two ways: WL Photo 2

  • It contains a powerful mix of wild crafted brown seaweed extracts of Ascophyllum nodosum (kelp) and Fucus vesiculosus (bladderwrack) along with 7-Keto DHEA.
  • These phlorotannin extracts are a class of polyphenols found exclusively in brown seaweed that act on amylase and glucosidase enzymes to optimize post-meal blood glucose and insulin responses.
  • Brown seaweed phlorotannins have a high Total ORAC and the extracts in Weight-less showed the highest antioxidant potency against superoxide anion of all antioxidants tested.
  • Dosage:  take one capsule 20 minutes before your meals.

Since post-meal glycemic fluctuations lead to oxidative stress, these results suggest that Weight-less could have a superior action against free radicals by preventing post-meal hyperglycemia as well as having a direct scavenging action.

Dear Friends

Still dealing with the flu? Chest cold? Coughing?
WL Photo 2
We suggest a second consideration of Weight-Less.

What possible food has powerful anti-microbial abilities against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, and of course, promotes weight-loss, contains antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, and antitumor properties? AND all this, plus, insanely high ORAC antioxidant?

Brown algae, from the fucaceae family!

Weight Less is composed of two brown algae from the Fucaceae family: Ascophyllum nodosum, known as kelp, and Fucus vesiculosus, or bladderwrack. Pholorotannins extracted from these algae show some of the highest and richest phenolic content, performing many biological activities (Catarino, Silva, & Cardoso, 2017).

Sandsdalen et al. (2003) has shown that a fucophlorethol derivative isolated from F. vesiculosus (bladderwrack) has a potent antimicrobial against Gram-positive bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureusStaphylococcus epidermidis, and Gram-negative bacteria, such as Escherichia coliProteus mirabilisPseudomonas aeruginosa, reducing their growth by 85% compared to controls.

A purified phlorotannin extract of A. nodosum is also shown to have potent anti-microbial properties against E. coli (Wang at al., 2009).

Together with 7 Keto, Weight-Less is a smart tool for immune boosting during the flu season. Boost treatment with Garlic and No 7.

Green Facts:

Globe_Home 3Choosing a healthy diet: Research studies link the emerging global pattern of metabolic syndrome and weight gain to the prevalence of Westernized diet of daily meats, dairy, eggs, simple and processed carbohydrates, and too much sugar (Chai et al., 2017; Azadbakht & Esmaillzadeh, 2009; Lutsey et al., 2008). Although there are conflicting views on dietary guidelines, many scientists and health organizations agree that a focus on whole food plant-based diet is the healthiest guideline for metabolic syndrome and weight loss (Yokoyama et al., 2017; Satija et al., 2017; Kahleova et al., 2017; Hever et al., 2017; Turner et al., 2017; UN Report, 2016; Wang et al., 2015; Tilman & Clark, 2014; WHO/FAO, 2003).*

The Plates, Pyramids, Planet report, compiled in collaboration with the Food Climate Research Network (FCRN) at the University of Oxford, concludes that a plant-based diet has many advantages for health and the environment (UN Report, 2016).*

The type and nature of carbohydrates that improve our metabolic health (obesity, cardiovascular, and diabetes) are comprised of whole plants with fiber (Wright et al., 2017). Whereas low carbs diets with high fat content is shown to increase metabolic syndrome (Lamont et al., 2017; UN Report, 2016).*

A diet that is 80-90% whole food plant-based is highly recommeded by many health organizations and medical universities around the world.
