A Thinner You in 2017

A Thinner You in 2017

New year.  New you.  New nutritional supplement?  If you are like most Americans, you would like to lose a little of the extra weight.  Diet and exercise are crucial to this goal, but sometimes you need a little extra boost.  We offer some high quality nutritional supplements to help curb that appetite and jump start your metabolism.

If you struggle with sugar cravings, it is very important to make sure that you are eating enough protein throughout the day.  Your body takes longer to burn protein and therefore prevents blood sugar drops that can result in cravings.  If you continue to struggle with cravings, even with added protein, we suggest trying Chromium Picolinate 200mcg.  Chromium has been shown to potentiate the effect of insulin and assist in metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats.  Good sources of chromium are meats and unrefined whole grain products, especially bran.  Most Americans fail to consume 50mcg of chromium which is required to meet the Estimated Safe and Adequate Daily Dietary Intake.  We recommend 200mcg of chromium taken three times daily with meals to help curb appetite and aid in metabolism.

If you tend to be an emotional eater, we recommend .  CarbCrave utilizes chromium, but also targets the neurotransmitters that effect mood and stress response.  It contains 5-HTP which can become serotonin in the body.  Because of this component, CarbCrave should not be taken in conjunction with an SSRI or MAOI anti-depressant such as fluoxetine, citalopram, escitalopram or paroxetine.  CarbCrave also supports your adrenal glands with ashwaganda and rhodiola to help regulate cortisol levels.  You should take 2 CarbCrave capsules 3 times daily with or before meals.
