Product Spotlight: Healthy-Thin

With the arrival of warm weather, people start to consider detox programs to flush their system and provide a fresh start for the spring and summer season. BodyHealth’s Healthy-Thin™ is specially formulated to help support you whether you are pursuing weight loss or just healthy body-weight maintenance.

Healthy-Thin is made with no artificial colors or flavors, no milk products or milk derivatives, no preservatives, no sodium, no gluten, no corn and no soy. When combined with healthy diet and exercise, Healthy-Thin™ can help you control appetite and curb cravings, improve your metabolism, support and maintain healthy blood sugar levels, and help the body flush excess water to enable you feel like the best version of yourself!

Below is a list of the ingredients that make Healthy-Thin one of the most powerful all-natural supplements for detox and weight loss:

Momordica charantia

Momordica charantia is a unique herb sourced from the Amazon, which has been shown to increase the body’s healthy utilization of glucose (blood sugar). This, in turn, helps to promote cellular energy and weight loss when supported by a healthy lifestyle.

Studies have found that after three months of continuous use of this botanical, healthy blood glucose levels tended to normalize, helping to curb spikes. During this trial, healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels were seen, too.

Cha De Bugre

Cha de Bugre is a Brazilian plant which is most often brewed and consumed as tea. Cha de Bugre contains potassium, allantoin and allantoic acid, which aid in safely increasing metabolism and naturally suppressing appetite. Cha de Bugre is often used in weight-loss regimens given its ability to reduce overall body fat and deposits. Cha de Bugre is widely considered a safe supplement that offers a wide variety of benefits, including supporting heart health.

Salacia Reticulata

Salacia is sourced from the regions of Sri Lanka and western India. With a long history of use in Ayurvedic medicine, Salacia's "mangiferin" component gives this powerful ingredient the ability to inhibit sugar absorption, which also increases the body's sensitivity to insulin. While these effects are desirable for people who struggle with blood sugar, it is also supportive in weight loss, helping to facilitate your body’s absorption of sugars and nutrients.

Hoodia Gordonii Extract

The Hoodia Gordonii cactus is found in Africa's Kalahari Desert and has been long-thought to help suppress appetite. Historically, the San Bushmen, hunter-gatherer tribesmen, would chew on this natural ingredient to stave off hunger during long hunting trips when food was in short supply.

Hoodia Gordonii contains P-57, a unique molecule that triggers nerve cells in the appetite center in your brain (the hypothalamus) to trick your noggin into thinking your stomach is full. In some cases, this powerful, natural ingredient has been shown to help reduce calorie consumption significantly while encouraging satiety.

Other Ingredients

While the above ingredients make up most of the special Healthy-Thin formula, it is also balanced with the following ingredients: Vitamin B6 (Pyrodoxine), Buchu Extract, Corn Silk Extract, Dandelion Root Extract and Parsley Seed Extract.

These ingredients all work together to help the body naturally expel excess water, helping to support healthy lymph flow, liver function, and urine output. When combined with decreased calorie intake and improved glucose support, fat stores are mobilized. This allows the accumulated toxins within the fatty tissues to be detoxified through your body’s natural liver and urinary processes.

The Link Between Depression, Antibiotics, and the Life Saving Benefits of Good Gut Flora
The Link Between Depression, Antibiotics, and the Life Saving Benefits of Good Gut Flora

Physicians over thousands of years have observed a link between a patient’s mental state and how swiftly they recover. It is a long-standing axiom that people who are determined to get better and maintain a healthy frame of mind recover more quickly, with better results.

But what if we told you that it’s a two-way street? That specific health conditions can cause conditions like depression and anxiety?

In 1931, decades before the first antidepressant and antianxiety medications had been developed, a physician named Yaskin discovered that clinical depression is the earliest manifestation of pancreatic cancer. Further research demonstrated that patients who suffered from gastrointestinal malignancies carried the greatest risk of suicide – which was one of the first science-based flags indicating that the digestive system can have an impact on mental health.

Toxins, Eating Organic, and Your Athletic Performance

The simplest way to reduce toxins in your body is to avoid them. Despite today’s crazy world that has toxins everywhere, there are steps you can take that will reduce your toxin intake. This gives your body a chance to get rid of the “backlog” and catch up.

  1. Eat ORGANIC. One of the most important ways to reduce toxicity is to eat foods that are certified organic. Not only do these foods contain higher nutrient densities to supply your body with what it needs, but they are free from the pesticides and chemicals present in most food.
  2. Avoid exercising and training in a densely populated city (when possible). As an athlete, your respiratory system is much more active – and training in a city with high levels of pollution means you are inhaling toxins just by breathing.
  3. Avoid any household products that have artificial fragrances. Artificial fragrances are toxic and should be avoided.
  4. Stay away from pesticides.
  5. Avoid highly-processed foods, as these are generally chock full of toxic chemicals.
  6. Stay away from products that contain BPA, which means avoiding plastic bottles, cardboard, and cans as much as possible.
  7. Avoid the use of non-stick cookware, as the coating contains harmful chemical compounds that can enter your food and be consumed.

Elderberry, also known as Sambucus nigra, has been used for centuries as a natural herbal remedy for those who fall ill.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, referred to elderberry as “nature’s medicine chest,” and it has been noted as early as the 5th century BC as a medicinal tonic – forever cementing it as a staple in human nutrition.

But, it wasn’t until recently that we understood WHY it is so helpful to the body. And with this understanding came advanced methods of harnessing the incredible power of this medicinal plant.
