What are Antioxidants?

Saturday, December 28th, 2013

 

BerryComplexAntioxidants are substances that may protect cells from the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. A free radical is any atom or molecule that has a single unpaired electron.

Because of this the unstable molecule “steals” from other stable molecules causing the once stable molecule to become damaged and unstable itself leading to a vicious cycle.

Free radicals wreak havoc within the cells and these damaged cells are believed to cause premature aging and tissue damage. Free radicals have even been associated with heart disease, cancer and stroke.

Antioxidants-How They Work

Antioxidants neutralize free radicals by giving one of their own electrons. The antioxidant nutrients don’t actually become free radicals themselves by donating an electron because they are stable in either way. They act as help to prevent cell and tissue damage that may lead to cellular damage and disease.

Foods High in Antioxidants

Berries– Cherry, blackberry, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, bilberry black currant.
Beans– Small red beans and kidney, pinto and black beans.
Vegetables– Those with the highest antioxidant content include artichokes, spinach, red cabbage, red and unpeeled white potatoes, sweet potatoes and broccoli.
Nuts– Walnuts, pistachios, pecans, hazelnuts and almonds.
Other Fruit-Pomegranates, grapes, oranges, plums, pineapple, kiwi fruit and grapefruit.
Dark chocolate and red wine are also sources of antioxidants

Once you’ve lost the weight, you want to maintain your weight and continue to feed your cells with Herbalife products, helping to ensure your success in keeping the weight off. You can have more energy and feel great!

When you get the results you wanted and you are feeling more energetic , why would you stop once you have reached your weight loss goals? You don’t start eating healthy and exercising to lose weight and once you have reached your goal suddenly stop eating all that “good for you” food and start hanging out at fast food joints do you? Of course not! You need to continue trying to eat well and exercise so that you stay at your goal weight and stay healthy!

Herbalife works the same way as any other nutritional program. The program will change a bit, you will probably change the way you take the products, but Herbalife is a way of life. Each product is specifically designed to work synergistically with the other products Herbalife offers to feed your cells the good nutrition you may have been lacking.

You don’t have to stay on the program to maintain your new weight and healthy lifestyle but it is certainly easier that way. You could lose the weight and take all you’ve learned about health and nutrition and apply it to your daily intake of food but you can not go back to eating the very way that made you gain weight in the first place and that would apply no matter what weight loss plan you choose.

Herbalife products work for you, but only if your ready to really give it your all. It’s that time of the year, summer’s here, look great and get into that swim suit before the cold months arrive!

Health and Nutrition

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Better health starts with better nutrition and exercise. Making sure you get the nutrition you need is vital to living and feeling great. No one can predict the future but you can do your best to ensure whatever the future holds your body can perform at its optimum level.

Eating better is key and adding daily supplements helps your body to get exactly what you need. More and more people are taking daily vitamins in addition to watching what they eat. The reason for this is that it has become more and more difficult to get the minerals and vitamins your body needs in the food you eat. The soil that your food is grown in is being depleted of those minerals. We are eating more fast food and easy to prepare foods with added preservatives, which are bad for the body on top of lacking nutrition.

Herbalife offers an easy solution to getting the vitamins and minerals you need. You take 1 or 2 shakes a day, depending on if you want to lose or maintain weight and add in the supplements they offer. That’s it. More nutrition less effort. Perfect for your busy day.

Chromium Supplements

Monday, September 24th, 2012

Chromium is an important nutrient involved in the metabolism of glucose. Simply put chromium is needed for energy. It is a key component in the synthesis of fats, cholesterol and proteins. Chromium helps to maintain stable blood sugar.

The Average American diets is chromium deficient. The reason for this is that the form in which chromium is available in foods is generally not easily absorbed. For this reason many turn to chromium supplements. A deficiency in Chromium can lead to

  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Glucose Intolerance
  • Poor metabolism of amino acids

Taking chromium supplements may help to promote lean muscle mass and fat loss. Which is another reason chromium supplements have become so popular.

When you consume too many carbohydrates, your body often experiences a sudden increase in blood sugar and insulin levels, which causes it to store fat.

Gymnema, a key ingredient in Snack Defense, helps decrease the rate of which your body absorbs glucose. Herbalife combines chromium with Gymnema and together, these help the body by allowing insulin to perform its function, thereby increasing cell-absorption of glucose.
