Kura Brazilian Diet (Orange)
FORM: 60 Capsules
Used for weight loss.
Weight loss can be very difficult, and as you already know there are hundreds of products that claim to be able to help you lose weight. Much of what you see today is smoke and mirrors because these products don't do what they say, they don't even contain the right ingredients that allow your body to do the job! The whole idea of weight loss has changed significantly over the past 10 years. The old concept of starving yourself is definitely outdated. The biggest change is the concept of how you should eat to lose the pounds; the second is the icing on the cake which relates to the types of supplements you should take. The idea now is to boost your metabolism, sort of kick it into high gear without the use of stimulants! In order to lose weight the system needs to keep the metabolism elevated for as long as can be, that is without over extending it and creating stress. This is because stress can be one of the very things that can cause us to gain weight. Elevated stress levels can cause binge eating and the breakdown of the very muscle tissue that you need to burn the calories. So what you need to do is to maintain a calm attitude about the process and life in general, and make sure that your blood sugar levels stay within the normal ranges for optimal and stable weight management and control.
Recently the New England Journal of Medicine found that people on a high-protein diet can lose twice as much weight over six months as those on the standard low-fat diet recommended by most major health organizations. This type of diet should of course include the addition of a responsible amount of 'live foods', dietary fiber and an appropriate intake of the right types of fats. One other benefit that the addition of protein into a weight loss regimen is, that it has shown to provide an improvement in triglycerides and HDL cholesterol levels which has obvious health benefits.
Other ingredients that assist the body in helping it to lose weight are hydroxycitrate (HCA), which is a chemical that is found in high concentrations in a plant called Garcinia Cambogia. The suggested effects of hydroxycitrate are based on its action as a potent inhibitor of the enzyme ATP citrate lyase (known as the citrate cleavage enzyme), which is required for the synthesis of fatty acids. This in theory prevents the production of fatty acids and their storage in the body. And in conjunction with this, HCA can divert calories toward the synthesis of liver glycogen (a polymer of glucose) which can support appetite suppression.
In any weight loss regimen it is very important to remember that systemic elimination is very important, simply because metabolic waste makes you hold water. And if you are holding water, you will weigh more. So the Brazilian Diet has added herbs that will assist in the process of intestinal elimination and the associated toxins that are typically found in that waste. Regularity is a major component of weight loss, as is remaining relaxed and letting the process 'happen'. The Brazilian Diet also helps you to remain calm during this period thereby preventing the negative stress response from sabotaging your efforts to be successful. With the addition of St. John's Wort and passion flower you will be better prepared to take on stressful situations that can cause you to continue the very behavior that got you into this mess in the first place!
