STRESS, SLEEP AND WEIGHT GAIN
How they all are linked together?
We are now leaving summer and entering those months when stress levels increase at holiday time, the immunity system becomes compromised as temperatures drop and the inches begin to grow at your stomach or thighs. While the thought of this makes us a little sad thinking about the unavoidable consequences of winter – WHAT IF THESE NEGATIVE SYMPTOMS OF WINTER WERE AVOIDABLE?
A new study of 1,800 pairs of twins found that increased stress levels and inadequate sleep has a significant influence on the hormones affecting weight gain. As reported by CNN, researchers found that diet and exercise only accounted for 4% of the weight gain factors in those that were stressed and sleep deprived. However, in twins that reduced stress and got more than 9 hours of sleep per night, it shot up to 51% and genetic influencers dropped in half.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
When you keep yourself in a state of stress, your body’s genes that encode for this type of stress also start saying “I need to hold onto calories”. Insulin levels raise and your body begins to lose its ability to burn and digest fats.
THERE IS HOPE!
Our scientists have come up with a powerful combination of stress reducers, sleep enhancers and weight loss catalysts to give your body a jump start on the negative factors described above. Our BRAIN RENEW product uses only natural ingredients (no synthetic caffeine and sugar) to relieve stress and support cognitive function. Bacopa monniera maintains healthy enzyme activity in the brain, supporting the ability to deal with stress. In one three–month trial conducted by Australian scientists, Bacopa monniera supported learning, minimized stress, and promoted memory. Rhodiola rosea has been used traditionally for hundreds of years to help lessen mental and physical stress and to promote endurance. Similarly, the amino acid l–tyrosine has indicated the potential to promote cognitive function and memory under stressful conditions. Ashwagandha, is highly revered for promoting energy, vitality and immune defense under stressful conditions. Chamomile provides traditional support for calmness and relaxation, allowing the body to process B vitamins and magnesium to help counter the effects of stress on healthy nutritional status.
Our WEIGHT REVIVE product uses natural ingredients such as Garcinia Cambogia and Raspberry Ketones to enhance weight loss. Garcinia Cambogia increases fat oxidation to help burn through fat stores and prevents fat accumulation in the liver, while the rind of the garcinia fruit has been used for centuries to stimulate a feeling of fullness. Raspberry Ketones are one of nature’s best fat burners by accelerating lipolysis to help your body burn fat quickly, before it can accumulate around your belly. Raspberry ketones also help the body regulate adiponectin, one of the proteins that govern your metabolism. SLEEP RENEW uses natural ingredients such as Melatonin, GABA, L-theanine and Mucuna to act as natural calming factors, many affecting the central nervous system by inhibiting nerve transmission to the brain, thus calming nervous activity and restoring restful sleep. There is no reason to accept stress, sleepless nights and weight gaining as a normal part of life any longer. Our formulations are natural ways to partner with your body’s genetic desire to stay healthy and energized. The combination of these 3 supplements can change your outlook on the upcoming winter months. Science has proven the alignment of these factors will enhance weight loss and restore optimal health. We encourage you to start today.
