As the holiday season kicked off with a Thanksgiving feast where we all probably ate more than we should have, it’s time to start thinking about 2014 New Year’s resolutions. As you’ve heard numerous times in the news, obesity is a major concern in America and causes numerous health problems for those who are considered obese or over-weight. Gaining weight is natural as we age for several reasons besides just poor diet, overeating, and lack of exercise.
There are many hormonal changes our body goes through as we age, and typically for weight gain it begins in our 30’s. For men, testosterone levels begin to decline, and an overproduction of estrogen can begin leading us to carry around that infamous “spare tire.” For women, their progesterone and estrogen levels decline, and because the progesterone declines at a quicker rate, this leads to a chemical imbalance and subsequent weight gain. This is in combination with other factors, such as DHEA for both men and women. Studies have shown that when the level of DHEA drops, fat mass, conversely, begins to accumulate. Your insulin resistance also increases with age, which leads to less control of your blood sugar, resulting in the failure to convert the sugars fuel as efficiently as before. This is yet another factor that can contribute to excess weight.
As you can see, there are a number of factors working against you, but the good news is there is something you can do to fight back! In order to obtain the best results you need to mix a healthy diet and exercise along with managing these hormonal issues. We offer a variety of products to help your cause, but three of our best choices for our customers are WellBetX’s PGX Plus Mulberry, Life Vitality’s Brazilian Lean with Acai, and Pharma Defense’s Diabetes Defense with Isohumulone Support.
