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.

Garcinia Plus® for Weight Management and Balanced Healthy Living

When you’re looking to improve your health or lose weight, the only honest long term solution is making a lifestyle change. The key to sustainable healthy living is to remember that it’s what you do most of the time that truly counts. Sustainable healthy living should never feel like deprivation; it should however, boost your energy, support healthy weight management and improve mood. This can be easily achieved with a combination of healthy eating habits, exercise and nutrient support, such as Garcinia Plus®. Here are some tips to send you on the right path for your newGarcina 1 healthy lifestyle:

Eating for Health

Eat Clean: Michael Pollen said it best, “eat food, not too much, mostly plants.” The intention should be to eat a clean whole foods-based diet. Simply by eating foods as they are naturally from the earth greatly improves the quality of nutrition you can get from each meal. If the food you’re eating bears little resemblance to its original natural state, you’re likely missing out on important micro-nutrients and phytonutrients you could’ve otherwise been eating.

Control Portions: Eating the right portions of foods is essential for weight management. A good general rule of thumb is that half your plate should be vegetables at every single meal. Make it half a plate of salad, or half a plate of broccoli for example. Your portion of protein is also important to consider. That steak that’s that size of half of your plate at the restaurant, it should actually realistically be about the size of your fist.

Stabilize blood sugar: When blood sugar goes through spikes and drops, it can affect your energy levels. Eating fats and proteins can help to keep blood sugar in balance by reducing the speed at which foods breaks down as glucose in the blood. Eating a diet high in sugars and refined carbohydrates can contribute to insulin resistance, meaning the sugar you eat can’t effectively enter the cell to be used for energy. The body then produces higher amount of insulin to work harder to remove the sugar from the bloodstream. Insulin resistance can contribute to feelings of brain fog and fatigue, as well as cravings for sweets1.

 

Move Your BodyGarcinia - 2

Exercise is important for weight management, heart health, muscle building and metabolism.2 The gym is a great place to go when it’s raining, or to learn new exercises based on your goals if you’re working with a personal trainer, but for some, the gym can be intimidating. Keep in mind, exercise doesn’t have to only be about going to the gym, there are numerous ways you can get out and move your body, the most important part is that you enjoy what you’re doing. Try a yoga class, go for a bike ride, jog outside, go hiking, or take dance classes, or try a few different things to keep things fresh.

 

Nutrient Support

Certain nutrients can help you transition to a healthier lifestyle and assist in weight management.

Organika® Garcinia Plus® contains a combination of 5 ingredients that help to support metabolism and glucose management essential to maintaining a healthy weight:

Garcinia Cambogia: Containing hydroxycitric acid, garcinia cambogia acts as a mild appetite suppressant by temporarily increasing feelings of fullness

Bromelain: Derived from pineapple stem, bromelain aids in the digestion of protein, carbohydrates and fats, as well as helping to relieve symptoms of indigestion

Apple Cider Vinegar: Boosts the metabolism of carbs, fats and proteins

Chromium: Supports healthy glucose metabolism by improving insulin sensitivity

Spirulina: Provides a source of protein to assist in muscle repair and growth

The answer to adrenal exhaustion is ADRENAsmart. ADRENAsmart, is a powerful herbal formula that makes you feel calm and relaxed, aids insomnia and helps you deal with life’s stressors.

FEATURED PRODUCT – Molkosan

An A.Vogel Super FoodMolkosan

By Josée Fortin, biochemist and naturopath

There is lots of talk these days about new super foods. Well, Molkosan® is one of them… but it’s hardly new! In 1947, Alfred Vogel was already very fond of his formula and repeatedly praised its beneficial qualities.

This Vogel favourite is made from natural lacto-fermented whey. This preserves the minerals contained in whey, including calcium, potassium and magnesium. Molkosan is rich in lactic acid, which is put to good use in dietetics and natural medicine. Alfred Vogel’s favourite whey formula has been reformulated to not only taste better, but also for added benefits.

 

How do we obtain Molkosan?

First, milk is curdled due to the action of special enzymes to obtain cheese and whey. The whey is then fermented with the help of our own licensed bacterial cultures which produce a high amount of lactic acid L (+). This is called the lacto-fermentation phase. Finally, we separate the whey from the protein and it is concentrated in a vacuum, preserving all of its qualities.

 

What does it do?

Fermented whey balances the body’s pH or acid-base level. High body
acidity has multiple causes, including excessive consumption of refined foods, insufficient water intake, lack of oxygen, excess chemical compounds in the environment (over 70,000 compounds) and, especially, a disrupted intestinal flora.

 

High body acidity is a sign that the pH of the intestine is too alkaline and that the alkaline minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium are not properly assimilated. This is linked to a long list of health
problems, including poor stress management, sleep disorders, allergies, food intolerance, yeast infections, joint and muscle disorders (including cramps), osteoporosis, anaemia, heart disease, high blood pressure, digestive tube inflammation, eczema and psoriasis, migraines, infections, bone fractures and gallstones.

 

Molkosan is rich in essential minerals, but its main action lies in
maintaining the intestinal pH balance, thus helping our body to absorb basic minerals found in our food. This, in turn, helps restore our entire body’s pH level. To be assimilated, basic minerals need to bind to mild acids – such as the lactic acid in Molkosan. Restoring our body’s pH level helps avoid or eliminate the health problems mentioned above. For example, a proper pH level in the mucous membrane of the digestive tract can help relieve heartburn and stomach ulcers.

 

Molkosan’s mild cleansing action can also help with weight loss. Our body
stores toxins in fat cells to minimize their destructive effects. To protect itself from toxins and maintain enough fat cells, our body will actually prevent weight loss! Molkosan also has a regulating effect on sugar levels, thus
reducing sugar and starch cravings and stabilizing insulin levels. When insulin levels are high, fat cells store more fat…

 

Lacto-fermentation helps promote a healthy intestinal flora and slows the proliferation of fungus. Those friendly bacteria in the gut do a great job in helping ward off infections. Seventy percent of our immune system is found in the intestines!

 

Molkosan provides well-being from the inside through its gentle daily cleansing and pH-balancing action. It maintains a healthy intestinal flora; especially in the case of bacterial upset or gastric acidity. In addition, because Molkosan is lactose-free, it presents no digestive problems for lactose-intolerant or lactose-sensitive individuals.

 

Molkosan goes very well with Boldocynara and Stinging Nettle to create a great spring cleanse.  Before you start any cleanse you’ll want to make sure you Pretox

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.
