Toxicity by Dr. Michael Colgan

Lipophilic means tending to mix with fats. Over the last 100 years, we have flooded our environment with thousands of lipophilic toxins, including pesticides, herbicides, and chemicals from building products, household products, furniture, carpets, and industrial waste (1).Lipophilic

The high levels and increasing contamination of human breast milk in the US and Canada provides ample evidence of widespread distribution of lipophilic toxins in our environment (2-4). I will take the example of just one of them–the much used flame retardants known as polybrominated biphenyls (PBDs). Lipophilic

In North America, levels of PBDs in breast milk are now among the highest in the world (4;5)—higher than levels found in Europe or Asia. To put it in perspective, PBDs in human breast milk in North America are much higher than the legal limit for any other form of milk .Lipophilic

Elevated PBDs in breast milk have been linked with lower birth weight and smaller heads in newborns (6). In a study conducted in the Netherlands, high blood PBD levels in mothers at the 35th week of pregnancy correlated with defective motor function, defective cognition, and disordered behavior of the child measured up until age six (7). In New York City, prenatal PBD exposure (as indicated by cord blood PBD levels) was linked with lower scores on tests of mental and physical development at the ages of 1 to 4 as well as age 6 (8). A recent controlled study in Spain (9) reported decreased attention and cognitive and motor scores in infants and children exposed to PBDs. Lipophilic

The evidence against PBDs is now so strong that the US Environmental Protection Agency is phasing them out. But, just like the insecticide DDT, PBDs will remain in the environment for our lifetime. Bald eagles in California still show high levels of DDT even though they were all born decades after the chemical was  banned. Like DDT, PBDs can persist in the body for decades, slowly damaging the brain and shortening lifespan. Lipophilic

The ray of hope is the miracle of the human body. As a living, constantly renewing organism, it’s able to be cleansed of such harmful toxins and chemicals. Regular cleansing routines emphasizing a high intake of water and nutritional support–along with reductions in body fat–enable the body to excrete most toxins. Lipophilic

You clean your teeth daily in order to maintain them. Your health will benefit a great deal more if you also clean your body daily, from the inside out.

No Time for Exercise? Try HIT Training

No Time for Exercise? Try High-Intensity Interval Training (HIT)

With high-intensity interval training, you reap the benefits of exercise without spending hours at the gym.HIT

We all know that exercise is good for us, and we’ve heard that we should be getting 30 to 60 minutes per day most days of the week. But in today’s fast-paced world, where the demands of work, child care, and home maintenance seem to endlessly steal from our ever-shrinking depot of availability, finding the time to meet these recommendations can be quite a challenge.HIT

What if there was a form of exercise that would allow you to reap the many health benefits of regular physical activity in just a quarter of the time? According to a recent review written by Australian researchers, high-intensity interval training (HIT) is a form of exercise that may do exactly that. Mounting evidence cited by the authors suggests that HIT is a time-efficient and effective alternative to traditional endurance exercise for boosting weight loss, aerobic stamina, and cardiovascular and metabolic health (1).HIT

What is HIT?

HIT involves alternating intense bouts of exercise, ranging from 30 seconds to several minutes, with recovery periods spanning one to five minutes. For example, a cyclist might incorporate HIT by pedaling as fast as possible for 30 seconds against a strong resistance, lowering the resistance and leisurely cycling for 4 minutes, and then repeating this alternating schedule 4 to 6 times per session.HIT

Such a training regimen adds up to about 20 to 25 minutes of exercise, which has shown substantial benefits when performed as few as three times per week. Just 2.5 hours of HIT completed over a total of 2 weeks has demonstrated benefits that are equivalent to 10.5 hours of continuous moderate exercise.

What are the benefits of HIT?HIT

Improved Body Composition HIT

HIT has been shown to reduce body fat, particularly abdominal fat. In comparison with continuous moderate exercise, HIT increases energy expenditure and fat burning to a greater extent in the minutes and hours after a workout . This “after burn” is formally known as excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC) and reflects the body’s extra use of energy to replenish depleted fuel stores, repair cells, and restore hormonal and other body systems to their pre-exercise state. This is the prime time to Consume an Isagenix Shake. HIT

In addition to increasing EPOC to a greater extent than traditional endurance exercise, HIT also promotes greater releases of growth hormone. This transient increase in growth hormone may be important during the post-workout period when muscles are primed for growth. During exercise, muscle damage occurs and muscle synthesis stops. Spikes of growth hormone promoted by HIT may quickly mitigate protein breakdown after exercise and serve as a signal for muscle growth.HIT

HIT may also help preserve muscle mass in other ways. During long bouts of steady-state exercise, glycogen (the storage form of sugar) becomes depleted, and the body begins to break into its muscle reserves to get protein that can be used for energy. Because HIT relies on intervals of intense exercise broken up by intervals of more leisure, less intense exercise, muscle reserves are better preserved. Together, increases in growth hormone and the protection of muscle protein results in the preservation of muscle mass, which keeps metabolism running high and supports greater fat loss over the long term.HIT

HIT is for (Almost) Everyone

Most people can benefit from HIT. Studies have shown that it is safe and effective for those with health conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and offers numerous advantages for healthy people simply looking to save time or switch up their workouts (1). Even professional endurance athletes are using HIT to improve performance by incorporating it alongside traditional endurance exercise in a comprehensive training program.HIT

HIT is a fun way to break up the monotony of conventional workouts, and according to the Australian researchers, may even be easier to stick to than traditional endurance training. HIT can yield substantial health and fitness benefits with minimal time commitments, making it the perfect prescription for those who don’t have 30 to 60 minutes every day to meet the current exercise recommendations. However, before starting HIT or any other exercise program, a consultation with a person’s physician is advised to determine if appropriate. HIT

I can’t tell you how ecstatic I am to share these amazing results from Courtney. He has been working an average of 60 hours a week for years and due to stresses at work he had been on high blood pressure pills for 12 years and unfortunately his blood sugar levels had to be controlled with medication. Isagenix scam

At first Courtney was a little skeptical but after hearing that my husband had released 22lbs in thirty days after two back surgeries, he was definitely willing to give it a try. One of the medications that he was on was making him gain weight and he wanted a solution. Isagenix scam

He was worried about the initial investment but when he realized that it was replacing food bought at the grocery store, it was a no-brainer. He got really excited when he realized that he could with little effort, get his products paid for and bring some extra income into his household. Isagenix scam

He hit the ground running and I would like to announce that after 30 days he has released 27 lbs , is no longer his blood pressure medication because he doesn’t have to and his blood sugars are normal. Isagenix scam

As you can see isagenix is changing lives everyday and now Courtney is growing his bank account by sharing it with other people. Isagenix scam

We are here to help people and when you set your mind to do that , you are well on your way to achieving your goals. Isagenix scam

No Compromise Ingredients Set Isagenix Apart

12 Aug

????????????????????????????????????????????????

As it should be, your safety is our first priority at Isagenix. Having safe, effective, “no compromise” products means giving no slack when it comes to selecting and testing raw materials, following the appropriate regulatory guidelines, and verifying that the finished products meet purity and composition standards. Isagenix cleanse

The Isagenix “No Compromise” Quality Policy is extensive and thorough, covering every detail from ingredient sourcing to manufacturing guidelines. By following key procedures, Isagenix can stand by their products with confidence.

After a product has been proposed and approved, it’s time to select the best source of the raw material to begin formulation. Quality ingredients could mean the difference between products having no effect and providing fantastic results. At Isagenix, raw materials are only sourced from suppliers with a proven track record of sustainability and quality. Isagenix cleanse

One of the best examples of Isagenix’s quality standards is the whey protein found in IsaLean shakes. New Zealand undenatured whey protein was carefully selected after vigorous research and testing because the quality of the protein can’t be beat. It’s the best of the best. It is derived from grass fed cows that are not given GMO’s or antibiotics. Happy cows equal fantastic protein. Isagenix cleanse

The guidelines that define how manufacturing should be conducted are known as current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs). Isagenix works to ensure that all products meet or exceed the highest standards of cGMPs for dietary supplements. Isagenix cleanse

cGMPs are outlined by the FDA and other international regulatory boards such as Health Canada and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia. These guidelines include authenticity, quarantine and release procedures, potency and purity testing of raw materials and finished products, cleanliness of the facility, employee training, and documentation . isagenix cleanse

Meeting all of these guidelines can make the release of products internationally a fairly complicated, yet beneficial, process. Through this series of checks and balances, Isagenix can stand by the quality of its products with pride.

Isagenix also adheres to detailed written Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to ensure consistency and safety in each phase of our manufacturing process. One SOP Isagenix follows requires that every raw material that arrives in the manufacturing facilities be immediately quarantined and thoroughly inspected. isagenix cleanse

Any raw materials that do not meet standardized testing methods are rejected or destroyed. Additionally, the testing that is done to confirm safety and purity of raw materials is very extensive. Rigorous testing is performed for:

• Microbial activity: total aerobic bacterial, yeast and mold, salmonella and E. coli strains, and other bacterial strains• Pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides• Heavy metals: all botanicals are tested for the presence of lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic• PCBs and dioxins: each batch of fish oil is third-party tested to confirm undetectable levels of heavy metals, PCBs, and dioxins isagenix cleanse

In addition to testing raw materials, Isagenix is unique in that they also thoroughly evaluate the efficacy of finished products. This includes re-analyzing the product for identity and purity. Third-party claim testing on vitamin and mineral content is also conducted to ensure the products fully meet what is said on their labels. Finally, stability testing is done to confirm that the strength and composition as indicated on the label of the product is accurate up until at least the expiration date. isagenix cleanse

Another major role of Isagenix Quality Assurance is statistical process control. This involves tracking trends to ensure product quality is continuously monitored and upheld. By putting this much care and attention towards product quality and safety, Isagenix knows it’s doing right by its customer and their health. isagenix cleanse
