As I’ve mentioned many times before at this blog, there is a lot of garbage out there when it comes to supplements. Until about 2 years ago, I didn’t even recommend a particular brand of supplement to my San Jose personal training and boot camp clients, because I just couldn’t trust what was in a particular company’s bottle–not to mention the outrageous claims some companies make. You can’t really miss it on the Internet these days. For instance, it seems like everywhere you look there’s another company promoting the nutritious Acai Berry as a weight loss miracle. It IS a powerful anti-oxidant, but some of the claims just make me sick.
I want to make sure you know my opinion on the subject–and I’ve got some exciting news on the subject for you, too!
First, you know better than to believe you’re going to pop some pills – ANY pills – and have the pounds and inches melt off like magic. Pleeeeease give that notion up.
If you’ve been working with me or reading this blog for any length of time you know true fat loss comes from a variety of factors, including exercise and proper nutrition.
Second, any fitness expert worth their fees will tell you that any diet that promotes you eat any one food all day long and then eat a sensible dinner, well, don’t bother. Yes, you will lose some weight short-term (due to taking in fewer calories), but as soon as you go back to your old eating habits – and you know you will – you know exactly what happens.
Third, the Acai Berry actually does contain VERY powerful antioxidants and it is getting a lot of good press for that very reason. Antioxidants are extraordinary nutrients that help fight the free radicals associated with aging, cancer risk and other degenerative diseases. Just keep in mind, acai berry alone is not a miracle cure.
Research has shown that there are a number of powerful antioxidants found in nature, and we should be getting them in our diet. Did you know that the coffee berry (the berry that covers the coffee bean) is one of the most powerful antioxidants on the planet? It’s something researchers have just discovered in recent years.
What’s really cool is that Prograde Nutrition (the only nutrition company I have promoted in my 25 years in business!) has created a Whole Foods based Anti-Aging formula called Prograde Longevity that includes both Acai Berry and Coffee Berry. It also utilizes Green Tea, Pomegranate, Wolf Berry and Biovin Grape (Red Wine extract).
Just to give you an idea of how powerful this formula is, well, you’d have to eat an entire POUND of raspberries to get the same ORAC value. And in case you’re not familiar with the term, ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity.
Prograde creates their own forumulations based on scientific research. No phony baloney hyped up claims here.
Here’s the great news: You can now try Prograde Longevity for free! You simply pay a tiny shipping and handling fee. Just go to Prograde Nutrition to order your FREE bottle today.
But you really do need to hurry. I’m not sure how long they’re going to be able to make such an incredible FREE offer.
Yours in health,
PS – Remember, Prograde Longevity is NOT some silly weight loss pill. It is a powerful combination of anti-oxidants specifically designed to give you extraordinary protection against dangerous free radicals.
