PGX Will Change Your Life! Diabetic? High Blood Sugar? Weight Loss?

Categories: Appetite Suppressants, Blood Sugar, Cholesterol, Diabetes, Insulin Sensitivity, Mood, Refresh Daily Cleanse with PGX, Weight Loss

PGX is a product that is here to stay because it works!  It has been around for years now and has worked for millions of people.  Overeating, high blood sugar and type II diabetes are surging throughout North America and this is WHY PGX works so well as it gets you weight loss results by balancing your blood sugar and by curbing your appetite.  When you can control your insulin, you can control overeating and sugar spikes.

Say good bye to the irritable you when you didn’t eat enough carbohydrates and say hello to the NEW you who will now be in control of your life!

What have people had to say about PGX:

I have been taking your PGX for about a month now and have dropped 7 pounds. Very easy to do if you pay attention. Keep up the good work. I’m telling everyone about it.

Thanks Very Much

A.H. – Kitchener, ON

Hi. This is not a question but a comment. I just want to say that I thank God for this supplement. It has been life changing since I have struggled most of life with sugar cravings and also the last 8 years dealing with crashing after almost every meal on a regular basis. This supplement has helped me to deal with those two problems and I notice the difference when I ran out recently and I’m waiting for 2 bottles to arrive in the mail. Believe me I’m checking my mailbox every day waiting for it. So I wanted to say thank you so much for your research and everything you have done to put this product together, I’m sure pounds drop after not being hungry all the time and controlling myself from eating sweets with PGX’s help. THANK YOU!!!!!
P.H. Wesley Chapel, FL
Update: My mood is better becasue I don’t have blood sugar levels going up and down.

ABOUT PGX:

PGX® (PolyGlycopleX®), is a novel complex of water-soluble polysaccharides (plant fibres). It was developed after many years of research, most of it focused on the link between blood sugar imbalance, appetite, and weight gain. PGX safely and effectively restores proper blood sugar levels, reduces appetite, and inhibits weight gain.

To understand how one product can do so much you need to understand the link between blood sugar, appetite and weight gain. Many overweight people do not realize that they are on a blood sugar roller coaster:their blood sugar levels rapidly rise and fall throughout the day. The brain pays close attention to this cycle. Minute by minute it monitors blood sugar levels, because a rapid drop is as threatening to the body as a loss of oxygen. When blood sugar falls, the brain sends out powerful messages designed to bring blood sugar back to appropriate levels. “Eat!” the brain demands. These messages that we recognize as food cravings are almost impossible to ignore.

 

To lose weight effectively, appetite needs to be corrected. To many this involves trying to suppress appetite, but this is a short-term, ineffective solution. For long term success, appetite needs to be corrected through blood sugar balance. PGX® has been

clinically proven to correct appetite – helping you lose weight,control and balance blood sugar levels,and even lower cholesterol.  

 

PGX® is taken with meals and is available as a softgel capsule or in granular form. PGX® is sold through grocery stores and pharmacies, health food stores, and through health care professionals and natural dispensaries.  You can feel confident in using PGX®, because it has been

proven to be safe in two independent clinical trials.

As always, we hope that you will come and visit us at either Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun or Supplements Plus. Do not sit in silence; there are so many things you can do to better your health!

Dr. Oz Talks About Alpha Lipoic Acid Helps to Prevent Diabetes on Monday March 26th

Categories: Anti-Ageing, Antioxidants, Blood Sugar, Diabetes

Do  you suffer from nasty sugar cravings? Do you often crash after you eat your lunch or feel like you are dragging yourself through the afternoon?  Many of us are struggling just to get through the day all because of the vicious cycle of sugar! At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus, we have been recommending the potent antioxidant Alpha Lipoic Acid for healthy skin, fighting free radicals and other health benefits.  Today Dr. Oz has talked about Alpha Lipoic Acid again and is recommending it to  help balance blood sugar.  Alpha Lipoic Acid is often deemed to be the near perfect antioxidant as it is both fat soluble and water soluble thus able to pass through any cell protecting us from free radicals.

One of the most important ways of beating diabetes is to know your numbers.  Dr. Oz wants North Americans to take charge of their health and being informed is the first step.

Once you know your numbers of course diet and exercise are always key to all health goals, but then there are additional things you can do to improve your blood sugar such as taking Alpha Lipoic Acid, Cinnamon Extract or PGXDr. Oz discussed today that Alpha Lipoic Acid helps lower your blood sugar; he recommends to take 300mg per day and then increase to 500mg.

What is Alpha Lipoic Acid?

Alpha Lipoic Acid is one of the fatty acids that is produced in our cells.  It is also found in some foods such as spinach.  We are always in shortage of this wonderful antioxidant and therefore it is important to supplement with it.

Dr Oz also recommends Phase 2 White Kedney Bean Extract.  He said:Take White Bean Extract: Often times, when you’re stressed out you reach for carbs that increase weight gain. The supplement white bean extract inhibits the enzyme alpha-amylase, which blocks the absorption of carbs and reduces your chance of developing excess belly fat. You can start out by taking 500mg of white bean extract each day before a big meal and then increase it up to twice daily.”

Benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid:

  • Works together with other antioxidants to work more efficiently such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E
  • Anti-Ageing
  • Helps ease degenerative diseases
  • Protects cells from free radicals
  • Used in treatment of liver disease
  • Converts glucose into energy

As always, we hope that you will come and visit us at either Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun or Supplements Plus. Do not sit in silence; there are so many things you can do to better your health! Get excited and take charge of your health. Let’s work together, to ensure you are doing all you can to lead a happy and healthy life.

Dr Oz Recommends: White Kidney Bean as your Carb Blocker (Phase 2)

Categories: Alive Brand, Blood Sugar, Diabetes, Hot products, Supplements, Weight Loss

Alive Brand Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer! White Kidney Bean

Are you trying to lose weight, but instead find yourself losing the battle against carbohydrates?  Carbohydrates are loved by many of us especially in North America!  We love pizza’s, breads, pasta’s, potatoes and pretty much anything starchy!  It is almost impossible for someone to cut them out completely because life has to be somewhat enjoyable and let’s face it, a freshly baked Italian loaf of bread with some butter on it is to die for.  There is a healthy way to sneak some of your favourite meals in, such as a beautiful pasta dinner without feeling guilty.  Dr. Oz has been talking about the miracle’s of the White Kidney Bean recently and this is the same thing as Phase 2.  Phase 2 is the trademark name for the White Kidney Bean and essentially it is a starch neutralizerAlive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus have been helping people manage their weight with the safe and effective Phase 2 for years!  We have many testimonials, many success stories and a lot of happy campers because they have been able to find that balance.

 

 

Main Points/Benefits of Phase 2:

  • Starch makes up most of the diet 25-33% in most cases and taking Phase 2 will neutralize 375-495 calories a day even if you do not make any other changes to your diet or physical activity (however, we always recommend a balance in life, always find something active to do that you will enjoy)
  • When you neutralize 375-495 calories a day that is enough to lose a pound every 7 to 9 days!  That is without changing anything!  Imagine if you through in some exercise!
  • Phase 2 will not help you against sugars in cakes or cookies (basically sweets).  Phase 2 will only neutralize the starches, this is important to note.  If you also have trouble with sweets and you are on the verge of becoming diabetic or you are diabetic you may want to consider PGX or Go 4 Trim which has the Konjac Root fibre  will help you with those sugar craving.  Dr. Oz also speaks very highly of Glucomannan (Konjac Root).  For more information on Go 4 Trim and PGX come in and see us at a location near youI have also written a previous article on Go 4 Trim.
  • Phase 2 contains NO stimulants, it is safe, effective and INSTANT!
  • Many Asians find Phase 2 helpful!  If you love noodles, dumplings and other starchy Dim Sum foods this is a must for you!

What is Phase 2? And HOW does it Work?

Phase 2 contains (Phaseolamin 2250) this is an exclusive all natural compound extracted from a portion of the white kidney bean.  Through numerous studies, Phase 2 has been found effective in neutralizing carbohydrates safely!  Therefore, Phase 2 prevents starch from being converted into sugar and eventually into fat!  When Phase 2 is consumed before a starchy meal, it later excretes a solid waste of starch (carbohydrates)!  Phase 2 works by binding itself to the enzyme Amylase which is produced by the pancreas and thus does not convert starch into sugar.  Diabetics may also benefit from Phase 2.  This makes sense because diabetics have trouble controlling their sugar and insulin.  When taking Phase 2 starch will not convert into sugar and then a diabetic doesn’t need extra insulin to deal with the starch. 

Why Does Eating STARCH (Carbohydrates) make us gain weight?

After we eat starch an enzyme called Amylase converts starch into simple sugar.  If we have a fast metabolism or we are engaged in enough physical activity/exercise some of these sugars will burn, otherwise it is stored as fat in your body.  Everyone is always worried about consuming too much fat, but many people still are not aware that you must watch your starch intake!  They sneak up on you.  Just remember, if you are sitting all day at work and you consume 2500 hundred calories throughout the day with most of it being carbs, you will be gaining weight if there is no exercise to burn off those calories you are not using.  Phase 2 will neutralize 75% of those,  then you need some to give you energy and lastly with a little bit of exercise you will take care of the rest! 

As always we thank you for reading!  We hope you enjoyed the article.  While supplements are here to help you, remember that making healthy changes to your diet as well as incorporating physical activity into your life are always a good habit to get into.  No matter what, you are what you eat and do.  If you sit around too much your blood vessels and arteries will sit around too getting hard and stiff.  Weight management is tough and Phase 2 is here to help you get some results safely and effectively.  At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus we are dedicated to helping you with your whole health; we strive to create a healthy balanced lifestyle.  We look forward to helping you with what ever your health care needs are at a location near you!

Lorna Vanderhaeghe Mag Smart: For Heart Health, Depression and Children Behavioural Problems ADHD

Categories: ADHD, Autism, Baby Health, Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar, Brain Health, Depression, Diabetes, Kids Health, Parents, Stress, Womans Health

Lorna Vanderhaeghe’s Mag Smart is in the form of Magnesium Bisglycinate which does not causeAvailable at: Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus! diarrhea.  Sometimes the issue with taking Magnesium in Citrate form is that when taken in higher dosages, it causes a loose stool.  For some people a loose stool is good news, but for those that need to take a higher amount of Magnesium, the Bisglycinate form is the way to go!

There is a lot of buzz about taking Vitamin D and Calcium, but Magnesium is one of the minerals that many people are deficient in.  Magnesium plays a vital role in allowing our body to function properly.  Magnesium is needed for our enzymes, for blood vessels, for nerves, for heart health, for the brain and much much more!

While Lorna’s Mag Smart is great for: depression, muscle spasms, cardiovascular health, diabetes as well as chronic fatigue, one of the most intriguing benefits is for children’s behavioural issues.  There is an epidemic going on where many parents are concerned about Autism, ADHD and even depression with their children

 According to Dr. Oz in 1980 Autistic children were diagnosed 1-5000 and currently Autistic children are being diagnosed at 1-110!

Unfortunately, there are not concrete answers as to what the true cause of Autism is.  The answer is not simple, there are just too many factors these days due to our complex environment.  The GOOD news is that there are things you can do that are in no way harmful to your children… like taking Fish Oil, balanced diet and Mag Smart.  Lorna says it best, here is what she has said:

Behavioural Problems
“Magnesium deficiency occurs more frequently in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) than in healthy children. Studies have shown that magnesium supplementation reduces the symptoms of ADHD in children.

In one such study, a combination of magnesium and vitamin B6 was shown to reduce symptoms such as physical aggressiveness, instability, and poor attention at school in all study participants (52 children) after 1-6 months of treatment.

Magnesium, together with vitamin B6, may also be beneficial for autistic patients. While no cure for autism is known, magnesium and B6 supplementation has led to remarkable improvement in many cases”. (Lorna Vanderhaeghe, www.hormonehelp.com)

I have seen the most attentive and dedicated parents do whatever they can for their children.  Special learning techniques, motor development classes, memory pattern routines, Fish Oil supplements among other supplements.  My heart goes out to those parents who only want the best for their children.  At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus we truly care about this issue.  Majority of us are mothers with 20 + years experience, some of us are new mothers with all the latest information and some of us are expecting!   Where ever you are in life, we look forward to helping you with whatever your health care needs are.  Come see us at a location near you.

Vitamin D

Categories: Bone Health, Cancer, Depression, Diabetes, Immune System, Osteoporosis, Sleep, Womans Health

We all have heard a lot about Vitamin D and how important it is to have adequate amounts especially during the winter.  This article is a reminder to take your Vitamin D this winter.  Most of you know about Vitamin D, but sometimes it sits on the counter and we forget to take it.  Below will remind you of the reasons you shouldn’t forget.

Research states that Vitamin D deficiency in adults can lead to osteopenia, osteoporosis, depressed moods, sleeping problems, muscle weakness, fractures, cancers, autoimmune diseases, and cardiovascular diseases. There is also some evidence that Vitamin D may reduce several types of cancer and type-1 diabetes.  Many of us especially women walk around with tiny little fractures and silcea is a mineral that is very important to combat against osteopenia (the precursor of osteoporosis) but Vitamin D also plays a vital role in preventing fractures.  Vitamin D helps absorb your calcium so it is not not just sitting there doing nothing.  Reality is calcium is useless if it doesn’t get absorbed so make sure you take a good form of calcium, such as a calcium citrate with Vitamin D and magnesium.  Keep in mind there are even better calciums such as Coral Calcium and if you are older, already have osteoporosis, or there is osteoporosis in your family the AOR Brand Bone Basics is top notch.  At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun or Supplements Plus we can take the time to explain all the differences and we can find you what suites your needs based on gender, age, family history etc.   

So how much Vitamin D should you take?

There are many answers.  The recommended daily value still remains at 1000iu for adults.  Then there are other factors such as: age, your current health condition (for example if you have osteoporosis), and where you live.  Basically at the moment somewhere between 1000iu and 2000iu is good.  However, there are many studies where people have reversed osteoporosis with very high levels of vitamin D, and if you wish to do this see your doctor or your naturopath.   Another point about Vitamin D is many people say  “the sun gives you Vitamin D.” Remember that your body produces the Vitamin D, but when the sun is absent, your body cannot produce it. 

Good Brands?

There are many: Natural Factors, AOR Drops, Sisu Sublingual, those are some suggestions.

So keep things simple this winter, elevate your mood and keep yourself healthy by remembering to take your Vitamin D.  Vitamin D3 is what you will be looking for in the health store.  As always we look forward to helping you with your health care needs at Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus! Take care and thanks for reading.
