Bulletproof’s Brain Octane is 100% Caprylic Acid, the most ketogenic MCT from the most precious part of the coconut. Brain Octane is the shortest of the MCTs and is 18-times more concentrated in Caprylic Acid than regular coconut oil. Supporting cognitive function, it is processed rapidly and easily digested, being quickly and easily absorbed by the brain & body and is not stored as fat. It converts the most ketogenic MCT into energy and is used by the brain faster than other fats or oils. It is metabolized differently than other types of fat and does not increase cholesterol, making it the top choice for reaching peak brain performance all day. It is odorless, flavorless and liquid at room temperature and can be substituted for other edible oils to support more intense mental activity.

 

MCT Oil isn’t just for coffee!  You can make all kinds of tasty treats with it – check this recipe out:

This is a delicious keto chocolate shake with minimal ingredients that takes less than 2 minutes to make. It’s low-carb, contains quality fats and protein, and is full of energy. The cinnamon and vanilla both add depth to the flavor to this shake and the added coconut milk makes it smooth and creamy.

Exciting ChirositolTM Researchglucosmart_small

Over 30 published studies performed at the Virginia Medical School have shown that ChirositolTM, a nutrient derived from carob, is an effective supplement for insulin-resistant conditions including weight gain, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes, as well as for excess androgen (male hormone)-related concerns such as PCOS, acne and male facial hair growth in women.
There is a connection between the loss of our waist and changing hormones. The main hormone involved in the development of belly fat is insulin. Insulin is a powerful hormone that, when in excess, also causes an elevation in male hormones, particularly testosterone. Excess male hormones can cause male facial hair growth, acne and PCOS in women. Elevated insulin and blood sugar further leads to weight gain, high cholesterol, high triglycerides,
diabetes and especially belly fat. An early sign of pre-diabetes is skin tags due to higher-than-normal blood sugar and insulin. ChirositolTM normalizes insulin and blood sugar levels, thereby assisting with all of the above conditions.
ChirositolTM mimics insulin’s activity, controlling blood glucose levels, glucose storage and the action of glucose in the cell. It will not, however, cause low blood sugar in those with normal blood sugar levels. ChirositolTM also elevates our happy hormone, serotonin. Reduced serotonin or poor metabolism of serotonin is linked to increased sugar cravings. By balancing serotonin and blood sugar, ChirositolTM also helps to control appetite.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is an insulin-resistant disorder with resulting elevated male hormones. Many fluid-filled cysts may be present in the ovaries, but some women do not have multiple cysts. In this disorder, excess circulating insulin and luteinizing hormone increase the production of male hormones that can cause acne and coarse facial hair growth in women. Oily skin may also be evident. Affecting up to 10 percent of the population, PCOS is the most common hormone dysfunction among women in their reproductive years. Symptoms often become apparent in puberty, when menstruation begins. Irregular menstrual periods with excess bleeding may occur, or PCOS can cause a lack of periods altogether. Because eggs are frequently not released, infertility is a major concern of women with PCOS. If pregnancy does occur, it often ends with first trimester miscarriage or is associated with gestational diabetes. If left untreated, PCOS can lead to cancer of the uterine lining. Women with PCOS also are at increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and hypertension. PCOS is a very challenging condition to treat and ChirositolTM effectively reduces excess male hormones, reduces weight and appetite, and normalizes ovulation, thereby improving fertility. If you have been battling PCOS, ChirositolTM is the solution.

FEATURED PRODUCT: CELLUsmart by Lorna Vanderheaghe

CelluSmart picThin, overweight, young and older women are plagued with cellulite. Often nicknamed “orange peel skin”, cellulite causes the skin to  look and feel bumpy. Women are  more prone to cellulite than men  because women have fat stored  closer to the top layer of the skin. Too much estrogen, repeated weight loss or weight gain, inadequate nutrition and poor lymphatic drainage cause fat cells to be pulled in different directions distorting their appearance on the skin. If you have tried to get rid of cellulite you know it is a challenge. Finally we have a cellulite cream called CELLUsmart that is backed by science and works within 21 days. CELLUsmart promotes lipolysis which is the breakdown of triglycerides so that the fatty acids are free to leave the fat cell. When this occurs, the fat cell gets smaller which is the key to changing the appearance of cellulite.

 

Drain Those Fat Cells

CELLUsmart contains coffea canephora extract and 3% caffeine in a phospholipid matrix. Research using coffea canephora extract showed a 69% increase in the release of fatty acids from the fat cell with a corresponding 49% decrease in the diameter of the fat cell.  Alkaloids from the 3% caffeine phospholipid matrix stimulate lipolysis causing fat cells to release stored fat. This special phospholipid matrix of caffeine increases the penetration of the active ingredients promoting rapid results. Research has shown a significant reduction in thigh circumference when this type of caffeine is applied twice a day over several weeks. Caffeine also stimulates lymphatic drainage and reduces edema which is impaired in those with cellulite.

 

Massage Roller Busts Cellulite

CELLUsmart also has a unique multi-head massage roller attached to the CELLUsmart bottle. Applying the cream and rolling the massage head across the affected areas will quickly break-up disordered fat cells and adhesions. With the combined action of the active ingredients releasing fat from your fat cells and the multi-head massage roller, you will see results in 21 days with twice-a-day application. To speed up the process of reducing the appearance of cellulite eat protein, dark-coloured vegetables and gamma linolenic acid (GLA). A diet deficient in protein causes water retention and worsens the appearance of cellulite. Take epsom salt baths. Walk and jump to improve lymphatic drainage.

RECIPE – High Protein Smoothie with PGX Fiber

High Protein Smoothie

Smoothies are a great addition to your breakfast options. They are delicious and nutritious, and if packed with protein and fibre, it can help control your hunger all day.

Smoothies are so versatile. Whatever your personal preferences, dietary restrictions, and ingredients you’ve got in the fridge or cupboard, you can create a straw-sipping or spoon scooping meal or snack.

Just a few helpful tips. Don’t go overboard with the fruit.  Too much sweet can overpower the palate. If you’re adding ice, put it in last, as you don’t want to over blend until it just melts into water. Don’t be afraid to experiment though.  It’s also easy to get into a smoothie rut, so switch up the ingredients every so often.

Ingredients

A protein powder: whey, soy, or a mixed vegan source

A fat source: one tbsp of coconut oil, chopped nuts, natural nut butter (almond or peanut), sunflower butter or hemp seeds

A fiber: 2.5-5 grams PGX or one tbsp chia seeds or ground flaxseed

A lower glycemic fruit: 1/3 to 1/2 banana or/and 1/2 cup of frozen or fresh fruit (berries, kiwi, peaches, etc.)

A liquid: water, skim or 1% milk or even non-fat or Greek yogurt (source of protein), unsweetened almond milk (very low protein)

Directions

  1. Try adding one of these to change up your daily smoothie and for added benefits: ½-1 cup vegetables (carrots, kale etc…), scoop greens powder, sprinkle of cinnamon, unsweetened cocoa powder, ½-1 tbsp honey or maple syrup, lemon juice.
  2. How to freeze bananas: Using frozen bananas rather than fresh will do two things: it will keep your smoothie nice and cold and it will give your smoothie a thicker consistency. To freeze bananas, peel them, cut them in half, and place them (not touching) flat on a cookie sheet. Place in freezer until completely frozen, and then transfer frozen banana halves to airtight container for easy access.
