Carrageenan – What it is and Why it is Dangerous

Carrageenans or carrageenins are a family of linear sulphated polysaccharides that are extracted from red edible seaweeds. They are widely used in the food industry, for their gelling, thickening, and stabilizing properties.

 

Undegraded carrageenan – the type that is widely used in foods – has been associated with malignancies and other stomach problems.

Research has shown that exposure to carrageenan causes inflammation and that when we consume processed foods containing it, we ingest enough to cause inflammation in our bodies. That’s a problem since chronic inflammation is a root cause of many serious diseases including heart disease, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, and cancer.

DID YOU KNOW ?

Drug investigators used carrageenan to cause inflammation in tissues to test the anti-inflammatory properties of new drugs.

When laboratory mice are exposed to low concentrations of carrageenan for 18 days, they develop “profound” glucose intolerance and impaired insulin action, both of which can lead to diabetes.

All told, as far as carrageenan safety goes, I recommend avoiding regular consumption of foods containing carrageenan. This is especially valuable advice for persons with inflammatory bowel disease.

Dangers of Energy Drinks – Monster – Red Bull and the Like

Monster Drinks :
 
Nervousness
 
The high caffeine content of Monster energy drinks is responsible for its side effects. Nervousness and jitteriness are common side effects of caffeine. Nervousness may be characterized by excessive sweating, tremor, nausea and racing thoughts. It is often dose-related, with the possibility for anxiety increasing with higher doses.
 
 
>>> What are the risks associated with energy drink consumption?
 
The researchers state that the health risks associated with energy drink consumption are primarily related to their caffeine content.
 
Potential risks associated with energy drink consumption include:
 
> caffeine overdose (which can lead to a number of symptoms, including palpitations, high blood pressure, nausea and vomiting, convulsions and, in some cases, even death)
 
> type 2 diabetes – as high consumption of caffeine reduces insulin sensitivity
 
> late miscarriages, low birthweight and stillbirths in pregnant women
 
> neurological and cardiovascular system effects in children and adolescents
 
> sensation-seeking behaviour
 
> use and dependence on other harmful substances
 
> poor dental health
 
> somewhat ironically, given their association with sportiness, obesity

Eduardo Kill – Energy Drinks

To all my Red Bull/energy drink fans…

Eduardo Kill fitness coach says:

“Life is all about choices – better choices! 👍 I remember when I was going through a bad phase of drinking Redbulls (😝) to get work done in the afternoons, after waking up at 4am 😴 to work. Plus I was also craving pizzas 🍕😱. I decided to put Slim to the test and BAMM 💥 within 3 days of drinking Slim, I felt a lift in energy, with no caffeine! And no more cravings! I became a fan after a week of drinking Slim consistently!”

We all know the more we drink, the more we need. All the while, the #chemicals in #energydrinks, is destroying our insides and can lead to some serious health problems…I dare you to take a real good inventory of yourself and ask “do I really care about my #health“?

#changes #justdoit

Your future self will thank you for it.”

Chlorogenic Acid Extract (from Green Coffee Bean).

One of the questions I get asked about Slim is , “Does the pink drink have a lot of caffeine in it?”


It must be why it gives you energy, right?
The answer is NO… The Pink Drink contains LESS THAN 2% of natural caffeine from Chlorogenic Acid Extract (from green coffee bean). This is actually less than a cup of DECAF coffee!!!!

Chlorogenic Acid is a naturally occurring compound known to aid in Lowering Blood Pressure and is a very important #Antioxidant for our bodies. It helps to slow the release of sugars (glucose) into the blood stream after you eat. Typically when you eat a meal, all the glucose that is found in the meal goes into your blood stream and gets carried to different organs. Once your body gets all the necessary blood sugars, it will store the rest as fat cells to be burned off later. It has been found that chlorogenic acid helps to slow down the body’s absorption of fat from food and increases your metabolism!


This is also why Plexus Slim won’t leave you with a jittery feeling or give you a crash later in the day. Dr. Oz did a segment on this in 2012 because it’s an amazing ingredient. It’s all about natural, plant-based, sustained, stimulant free energy! #PlexusSlim #chlorogenicacid #balancedbloodsugar

Plexus is So Different from All the Others

Don’t confuse Plexus with other companies…
This is why we love what we do and the products we have!

Truth: We don’t have an energy drink…we have a pink drink that helps maintain healthy blood sugars, helps curb sugar and carb cravings, and helps with energy without pumping you full of stimulants. And now we have an energy supplement that doesn’t have the crashes from the crazy amounts of sugars or caffeine, and it is natural and clinically tested.

Truth: Our growth is not skyrocketing because of weight loss pills; it is because we have products – like a probiotic that is incredibly effective and restores proper intestinal balance. We also have a magnesium supplement that oxygenates the entire body and cleanses the gastrointestinal tract. One of the awesome side effects of both of these is weight loss.

Truth: We don’t have an overwhelmingly large supplement line…we have 16 power-packed products that are plant, vitamin, mineral and herb based and contain ZERO artificial sweeteners, GMO’s, dyes or toxins.

That is what Plexus is about! It is about WELLNESS, about feeling good again, and about living your life to the fullest!

Plant Based Nutrition –

Weight is NOT the problem.

The underlying cause of what is triggering the excess weight IS the issue.

It’s not a magic pill or a simple solution because it is not ONE thing that has caused the enormous obesity epidemic and widespread health issues we are seeing in America today. The struggle is a result of poor eating habits, stress, lack of nutrients even though we are eating plenty of kcals, and toxins that can snowball into gut health issues, unstable blood sugar, and swelling in the body.

I am so thankful to have a GET WELL WHOLE BODY HEALTH system that has worked for me and so many others! And guess what often happens when you get your body balanced….ding, ding, ding….weight, fat, and/or inches come off as well!

I never knew healthy could feel so good!!??

Flintstone Vitamins versus Plexus Chewable Kids Vitamins

Hesitating to try x-factor vitamins for your kids bc you are worried that they aren’t FDA approved? Did you take Flintstone vitamins as a kid or give them to your kids? Guess what?

They aren’t FDA approved either nor are Any supplements or vitamins! But even worse, they contain Aspartame and artificial coloring.

Ours do not. The choice really is that simple.

Belly Fat Issues – Help is Here

Belly fat. It’s super stubborn.

For many people—women especially—even after losing weight and toning muscles in other places, their belly remains. It’s frustrating and discouraging.

While genetics play a role in how people store fatty tissue,1 there are a few common factors that might just be helping your belly fat hang on—despite your best efforts.
Stress

Women who experience high levels of stress tend to have a rounder abdominal region.

It also includes visceral fat — which lies deep inside your abdomen, surrounding your internal organs. Regardless of your overall weight, having a large amount of belly fat increases your risk of: Cardiovascular disease. Insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.

When you’re stressed, your body secretes cortisol—known to many as the stress hormone. The more cortisol, the more fat stored in the belly.

You likely have stressors, such as work or school, that you can’t eliminate. For these, there are a few things you can do to reduce your levels of corresponding stress. Contemplative practices such as yoga and meditation can be helpful in stress reduction.

And, of course, regular exercise, even if it’s not vigorous, can also help lower your stress level and release natural fat-reducing components in the body.


Sleep

We need sleep to rest, recover, and rejuvenate. And yet, most of us would admit that we don’t get enough sleep. Lack of sleep can impact your metabolism in multiple ways.

First, when we don’t get enough sleep, we lower our energy expenditure and burn fewer calories. Second, lack of sleep correlates with increased appetite. And third, if we don’t get enough sleep it can cause changes in our glucose metabolism.

Think about that for a minute. Without enough sleep, we’re likely to eat more, move less, and our blood sugar regulation is altered. Suddenly, the correlation between lack of sleep and stubborn belly fat is pretty clear.

So how do we get more sleep?

One way is to turn off screens an hour before bedtime. Let your mind and body unwind from the day. If you have to be doing something productive during this time, use it to prepare for the morning. Make your lunch or lay out your clothes. These small steps can help you relax by simply knowing you won’t have to worry about them in the morning.
Exercise

Daily exercise, just like getting enough sleep and reducing stress, is something we all know we should be doing.

But most Americans aren’t getting enough exercise. In fact, a recent survey released by the National Center for Health Statistics shows that nearly 80 percent aren’t meeting the recommended guidelines for daily exercise6,8—including 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity weekly and moderate or high-intensity strength training of all muscle groups at least twice a week.7 Regular aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities provide a myriad of benefits. Among them is combating stubborn belly fat. Even without diet changes, a daily exercise regime can result in a substantial reduction in belly fat.7

You are not alone in your struggle to lose belly fat.

The good news is that scientists are learning more every day about why abdominal fat is so hard to lose and how we can fight it. Getting more sleep, reducing your stress level, and getting the right amount of daily exercise may not seem like big changes. Until you implement them. After a while, you may find your belly fat is not so stubborn after all.
