Beneficial Supplements

When you visit About Face, we may suggest a supplement to better enhance your weight loss experience or to help maintain your healthy weight.   The following include those that have met the needs of many of our patients.

Carb Blocker

What is a carb blocker?
During the digestive process your body secretes a digestive enzyme that converts carbohydrates, found in starchy foods such as potatoes, pasta and breads, into sugar. These sugar calories are either used or stored as fat future use. Carb blockers neutralize most of the digestive enzyme that converts starch carbohydrates to sugar. As such, that allows the undigested carbohydrates to pass through your system with less caloric intake so you can enjoy those starchy foods that you love without worrying about all the calories and weight gain.

Carb Blockers and Blood Sugar
Starch carbohydrates are quickly converted to sugar in your body. A dramatic spike in blood glucose levels is produced after consuming a starchy food. As carb blockers prevent this conversion, research has shown that people who took carb blockers and ate starchy foods experienced a return to normal blood glucose levels earlier than those who at starchy foods without using a carb blocker. Further those who took a carb blocker had maximum blood glucose levels of one-half to two-thirds the levels of those who did not. For those with Hypoglycemia and Type II diabetes, this is very valuable.

What results can be expected from using Carb Blockers?
Individual results vary. However, over a 30 day period of using carb blockers and no other dieting measures, people lost an average of 3.9% of their total body weight and 10.45% of their body fat mass, without reducing lean tissue mass. The equates to a person who weighs 180 lbs losing 7 lbs a month by nothing but taking carb blocker.

Chromium

Chromium Piolinate aids in weight loss by increasing the metabolic rate. It also speeds up the metabolism of a special type of fat (called “brown fat”) and appears to suppress appetite – especially sugar cravings. Scientific and technical journals show that daily supplementation with at least 200 mcg of chromium iodinate can:

Reduce body fat
Retain and build lean muscle
Lower elevated blood sugar
Acts as a natural anti-depressant
Reduce elevated cholesterol levels
Extend the life span of laboratory animals
Suppresses appetite
Increases metabolic rate

Dosage: Take 2 capsules per day. Take 1 capsule after breakfast and 1 capsule after supper.

Colon Cleanse

Did you know that fecal matter trapped in your intestinal tract causes a build up of toxicity in your body?  This toxicity can make you suffer from acne, bad breath, bloating, belching, constipation, diarrhea, digestive problems, allergies, hair loss, decreased energy,  headache, insomnia, low sex drive, poor sexual performance, poor memory, poor eyesight, protruding abdomen, reduced resistance to infection, skin problems, weight gain, back aches, difficulty losing weight and difficulty trimming down your waist line.

When you do not eliminate properly, food may stay trapped in your color for days and even years causing a toxic build up that poisons your entire system.  Many illnesses are caused  by unhealthy colons.  In addition to the symptoms listed above, serious disease such as cancer cardiovascular disease and arthritis can also be linked to an unhealthy colon.  As you can see, many health problem can arise if the colornis not properly cared for.

The best diet is of no help if your colon is clogged with trapped waste.  Colon cleansing is the process of eliminating the trapped or impacted waste from your colon.  This rids the toxicity that is building up in your system and restores healthy, normally muscular activity within the colon.  If you have a healthy and clean colon your body can properly absorb the vitamins and minerals it needs to continue to stay healthy and energetic.

Garcinia Combogia Extract (HCA)

The origin of the Garcinia Cambogia Extract comes from the rind of the Gardinia Combogia fruit which is a small pumpkin-shaped fruit.  It is more widely known as a tamarind.   The fruit has been around for a very long time, and has proven to have many health benefits. How does the Garcinia Cambogia Extract work to help with with weight loss?

  • Acts as a fat blocker and prohibits fat cells from forming.   This leaves the excess fat that you take in nowhere to store inside the body meaning it passes through your system more rapidly.
  • Helps with appetite control allowing you to take control of your cravings.   You will feel less hungry, and in turn, take in less excess fat.
  • Decreases your current amount of belly fat, by zeroing in on the belly fat and helping to eliminate it.
  • Manages the level of Cortisol in your body, a hormone that is directly tied to stress levels.
  • If you are an emotional eater, this supplement has been shown to increase the serotonin levels which helps balance out mood swings and alleviates the symptoms of stress and depression.

 

All Garcinia Cambogia Extract Supplements are NOT the Same? You should look for:

  • The name Gardinia Cambogia (HCA) is on the bottle.
  • Contains 50% HCA (hydroxcitric acid)
  • Daily serving size:  1000 mg.
  • No fillers, binders or artificial ingredients.

 

Green Coffee Beans

Green coffee beans contain polyphenois, including chlorogenic acids, which, like grape seed extract and green tea, have antioxidants that help the body neutralize harmful free radicals.   Unlike coffee beverages, green coffee bean extract is low in caffeine and is not a stimulant.  Chlorogenic acids are also destroyed when coffee beans are roasted and their benefits are not available in coffee drinks.

Chlorogenic acids support the weight loss benefits of green coffee beans in a couple of different ways.  First, they promote balanced blood sugar by inhibiting the release of glucose within the body.  Secondly, chlorogenic acids boost the metabolic output of the liver, which burns more fat.  This dual mechanism works to support lean body mass by hindering the absorption of fat and weight gain.

HGH Renew

HGH Renew was designed to provide precursor nutrients to help boost the body’s natural HGH levels — a key to supporting the anti-aging process.  HGH Renew does not contain any hormones and its, therefore, a safe, sensible, cost-effective approach to supporting a younger you and embarking on a path to wellness and longevity.

Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is responsible for the health and vitality associated with our youth.  As we age, our pituitary gland in the brain produces less and less HGH, leading to  the signs and symptoms of aging – wrinkled skin, hair loss, decreased energy, sex drive and poor general health.  HGH Renew supports the anti-aging process.  HGH Renew is a safe, sensible,cost-effective approach to supporting a younger you and embarking on a path to wellness and longevity.  Because HGH Renew contains only all natural HGH boosters, it is free of side effects.

Dosage:   Take two capsules prior to lunch ad two capsules prior to dinner.

Lipo-Vite Capsules

The benefits of a daily dosage of Lipotrophic “Lipo-Vite” capsules include promoting normal growth and development; treating some types of nerve damage; treating low iron; improving memory and the ability to concentrate; and increasing metabolism and energy levels.  For those who prefer capsules, we also offer Lipo-Vite injections should you prefer faster results.

What is Lipo-Vite/Lipotrophic?
Lipotrophic means “fat loving.”  Basically, Lipo-Vite injections consist of substances which work together to liquefy or homogenize fat.

What are the Main Functions of Lipotrophics?
Lipotropics increase the production of lecithin by the liver helping to stabilize cholesterol deposits in blood vessels and decrease the chance of gallstone formations.  (Gallstones can be made of cholesterol).  Lipotrophics help in the prevention of accumulation of fats in the liver.  A fatty liver may cause sluggish liver function.

They detoxify amine (byproducts of protein metabolism) which is important for those on a high protein diet.

Lipotrophics increase resistance to diseases.  they bolster the thymus gland to carry out  anti-disease functions by stimulating the production of anti-bodies.  They stimulate the growth of phagocytes, which surround and “gobble up” invading viruses and microbes.  They also recognize and destroy foreign and abnormal tissues.

Lipotrophic capsules help enhance weight loss when combined with diet and exercise programs.

Moringa

The Moringa supplement is taken from the powdered Moringa Tree leaf.  This leaf is nutritionally unique:

    • There are over 46 antioxidants and 36 anti-inflammatory compounds in the Moringa plant.  The more antioxidants in the body, the less aging and disease.  Almost all diseases, especially age-related diseases, start with chronic inflammation.  If the inflammation can be corrected many of the infirmities of aging can be prevented or reversed.
    • Moringa leaves contain all 8 essential amino acids and 18 amino acids.
    • Moringa is rich in omega 3, omega 6 and omega 9 oils.
    • The Moringa plant is the highest source of chlorophyll in the plant kingdom.  Chlorophyll is very important in helping the body reach a balanced pH level.
    • Moringa has no known impurities or adverse reactions so it’s safe to take with most medications.

 

Those taking Moringa report the following:  Extra energy; better sleep; wrinkles disappearing, smoother, healthier looking skin; lower cholesterol and triglycerides; relief from muscle and joint pain from conditions such as arthritis; fibromyalgia; and carpal tunnel syndrome; decreased appetite,; balanced blood sugar levels, improved mental clarity; weight loss; less anxiety; normalization of blood pressure; allergy relief; strengthening of the immune system; relief from sinus conditions; heartburn; and digestive disorders.   Those with lupus, asthma, diabetes,anemia, cancerous tumors and auto-immune disorders have also reported positive results from ingesting Moringa Leaf powder capsules.

Suggested Dosage:  Take one before breakfast and one before lunch.  You can easily increase the dosage to two before breakfast and two before lunch.  Do not exceed 8 pills per day.  Best to take on an empty stomach 30 minutes prior to eating.
