Resveratrol – RESET
Resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes, blueberries and several other sources, including red wine. It is a member of a group of plant compounds called polyphenols and these compounds are believed to have antioxidant properties and protect against many kinds of damage to the body. Resveratrol has gained a lot of attention for its anti-aging and disease-combating benefits. Early research suggests that it might help protect the body against a number of diseases including Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes and Heart disease.
Resveratrol-treated mice that were fed a high calorie diet lived longer than those not given Resveratrol and also protected the treated mice from obesity related health problems by mimicking the effects of caloric restriction. Similar studies are now being carried out with humans and with immeasurable side effects, even in high doses, the early results show many benefits of supplementing almost everyone’s diet with Resveratrol.
Fiber – Body Effects and RESET
When most people think about fiber, they instantly think of better bowel functions, but there are many more benefits of increasing one’s fiber intake than just keeping you regular. The FDA recommends a daily intake of 20 to 30 grams of fiber and research shows that ingesting 27 grams per day will decrease the risk of heart disease and heart attacks.
Each serving of Body Effects has 8 grams of fiber and RESET has 7, for a substantial percentage of your daily requirements. It has also been proven to help with weight loss and slows the absorption of sugar thereby improving blood sugar levels. Fiber also lowers bad cholesterol and finally, yes, it does help “keep you regular.”
Colostrum – RESET
Colostrum has been called the promise of life, and research shows that it is the one supplement that can bring help to everyone that uses it. Colostrum is the key HGH precursor ingredient in RESET, our newest energy filled, pre-workout powdered supplement. Colostrum is found in all mammals’ milk and is passed from mother to child through breastfeeding to stimulate the initial growth factor. The child will then produce its own growth hormone until growth is completed, at which point, production drops off dramatically.
The real irony is that human growth hormone is the closest thing we have to the fountain of youth, but production is greatest during one’s youth and not as an adult. IGF-1 rich bovine colostrum is the purest and most readily available form of Colostrum and nearly identical to the serum in humans. By adding Colostrum to RESET, we are once again stimulating an increase in the body’s natural production of HGH to help build and keep lean body mass, as well as helping with weight control and reducing belly fat in the midsection in addition to many other health benefits.
Citrus Aurantium – Body Effects and RESET
Citrus aurantium, Bitter orange, or Seville orange refers to a specific citrus tree and its fruit, which is a hybrid between the Pomelo and Mandarin oranges. Many varieties are used as a flavoring or a solvent and the Seville variety is used in the production of marmalade. A common use of Bitter orange is in herbal medicine as an appetite suppressant or stimulant.
Used alone, or in conjunction with caffeine has been shown to increase weight loss in clinical trials. Bitter orange contains tyramine metabolites, a vasoconstrictor, which increases blood pressure and heart rate, which along with exercise, increases metabolism.
Phenylethylamine – Body Effects
Phenylethylamine is a powerful neurotransmitter suggested to support mood and promote appetite control and focus. It is naturally occurring in the brain and also found in trace amounts in chocolate. It is believed that the reason chocolate stimulates the mood is due to its Phenylethylamine. With Body Effects, you get all the pre-workout benefits of the Phenylethylamine found in chocolate without the extra calories.
Phenylethylamine has also been studied for its ability to affect the appetite control center of the brain, delaying hunger and preventing cravings for carbs and sweets. If you are looking to support appetite control, reduce cravings, feel energized and increase your focus to power through your workout, then Body Effects, with Phenylethylamine can definitely help.
CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) - Body Effects
Next to exercise and lifting weights, nutrition is the key component of weight loss and increasing lean muscle mass. In addition to protein, the most commonly used supplement, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a very important ingredient to help you achieve these goals.
CLA is an omega-6 fatty acid that’s naturally found in some dairy products and meat. We used to get CLA in our diet from meat and or milk from grass-fed cows, but most cattle aren’t grass-fed any longer so we now get only a minimal amount of CLA in our diet.
A lack of CLA could have a detrimental effect on our body by contributing to a buildup of unhealthy fat and limiting muscle growth and therefore must be taken in the form of supplements to fight these effects. CLA works by helping the metabolic processes that boost muscle mass. With this increased muscle mass, your body expends more calories and promotes fat loss due to the fact that muscle burns more calories than fat. When combined with a healthy diet and fitness plan, CLA can support muscle growth and fat loss, but keep in mind, it is not a replacement for a well balanced diet.
