How many of you have given a lot of thought to what you have eaten this week?
Many Americans don't pay too much attention to their diets. Check out the acronym for the Standard American Diet ..... SAD.
Yes, yes it is. Our food is our fuel, so when we put in crappy fuel, you get crappy performance. We crash with low energy and we have chronic inflammation and pain.
Energy drinks and coffee are stimulants give you quick energy, but cause a vicious cycle where you rely on them to get you going in the morning, crash in the afternoon, but then still don't get a fully restful night's sleep. All of this is weakening the adrenal glands and the thyroid, leading to more depletion of energy in the long run.
Even from the Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, coffee depletes jing, the vital essence that we have a prescribed amount of which is determined at birth. This vital energy can't be added to, only conserved or used up more slowly.
There are several factors that determine our health and vitality: diet, physical activity, weight management, rest and managing stress, exposure to toxins, and inherited genetic proclivities for disease or wellness.
While some of these variables may be beyond our complete control, there are important ways that through the choices we make, we can influence our bodies’ ability to keep us healthy and fit.
When we eat a lot of processed foods, (or, as one of the lecturers in my Health Coaching program called them, "unidentified food-like substances") and our diet is devoid of nutrients, our body breaks down, which leads to all kinds of ailments.
I'm going to share with you the best way that you can give your body the full nutrition that it may not have had for a long time, and feel a difference.
dōTERRA’s three core supplements, are formulated to provide you with potent levels of essential nutrients and powerful metabolic factors for optimal health, energy, and longevity.
I've taken a LOT of supplements and often haven't felt any differently. After a few days, people start to feel the effects of doTerra's Lifelong Vitality Supplements.
Here are some of the results people report:
Who wouldn't like to feel these things?
Here's an impressive list of the benefits of using the Lifelong Vitality Pack supplements:
There are a ton of documented studies on the ingredients in LLV. Every ingredient in all 3 of the supplements is at a therapeutic dosage level. Many products in the health food store have an impressive list of ingredients, but there is so little of it in the formula to actually do anything. With LLV, if it's on the label, there's enough of it to cause a therapeutic benefit.
So, let's take a look at the three components of the Lifelong Vitality Pack, individually.
Protecting cells from free radicals
Free radicals are not just the colorful characters hanging out on Haight Street in San Francisco.
Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage and even destroy healthy, functioning cells and speed the aging process by damaging cellular DNA and other critical cell structures including energy-producing mitochondria. This damage to the cells triggers inflammation. Chronic cellular inflammation has been linked to a myriad of illnesses such as chronic pain, cancer, cardiovascular and pulmonary disease, neurological diseases, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases such as arthritis.
Free radicals are a toxic byproductof breathing and metabolism of food. They also come from other sources such as pollution, smoking, sun exposure, and exposure to radiation. Cellular free-radical damage is believed to play a major role in many degenerative diseases associated with aging including cancer.
Antioxidants are stable molecules that can neutralize the danger of free radicals.
Most medical experts recommend that we increase our consumption of foods rich in antioxidants.
Polyphenols are a particularly powerful group of antioxidants that provide protection against free-radical damage to cellular DNA and mitochondria. They have a very high capacity to neutralize free-radical molecules and have been studied for a number of health benefits.
Alpha CRS+ Cellular Vitality Complex contains potent levels of powerful polyphenols that protect cells from free radicals that can damage cellular DNA, mitochondria, and other critical cell structures.
Increasing your energy at the cellular level
Many people seek to boost their energy through stimulants, which with long term use can create a long list of detrimental effects. Why not consider getting your energy in a much healthier and life-supporting way, directly from the body's natural source.
Remember the word "mitochondria" from your high school bio class? This is the body's natural energy producer that lives inside each of your cells.
In the Alpha CRS formula, the main ingredients (Alpha-Lipoic Acid, Acetyl-L-Carnitine, CoQ10, Ginkgo Biloba, Quercitin) all help the body to up the production of mitochondria and help the cellular production of energy.
As we age, the number of mitochondria per cell and their output efficiency can decline resulting in decreased vitality and energy. Compromised mitochondria can also release more toxic exhaust in the form of free-radical molecules, which can further damage mitochondria, DNA, and other critical cell structures. Less efficient production of energy in cells can result in a decrease of physical performance and mental energy.
So here are some of the Primary Benefits of the Alpha CRS formula
