We have lost over 100 lbs!!! This week we were rewarded with reaching the milestone of over 100 lbs lost. While we have set goals that are within reach individually, it really is a great feeling to reach such a milestone together.

There are four supplements aside from weight loss supplements that the entire group is taking and here’s a bit about each one and why we’re taking them:

ProOmega Lemon 1000 mg Fish Gels

 

Nordic Naturals ProOmega Lemon fish oil supplement – This fish oil supplies high potency omega-3 fatty acids that support cardiovascular health and the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response.

 
Multi-Probiotic 15 Billion (200900)Douglas Laboratories Multi-Probiotic 15 billion – Taking a probiotic is important because the gut rules the rest of the body. Once a healthy intestinal tract is in place, it provides immune system support and allows the rest of the body to function more efficiently (very important in weight loss.)
 
Digest Gold™ W/ATPro
Enzymedica Digest Gold – This potent digestive enzyme helps with the digestion of soluble and insoluble fiber along with beta-glucan and carbohydrates allowing the body to fully benefit from the nutrients in consumed food.
 
 
PhytoMulti without Iron
 
Metagenics PhytoMulti – This multivitamin is enhanced with select bioactive plant compounds and optimized with essential vitamins and minerals for multidimensional health support.
 
 

Each participant is taking the above vitamins and supplements, but the participants were also broken down into three separate groups depending on their weight loss goal, physical activity, and other factors to determine which weight loss supplement they would take. Next week we’ll share some information about those supplements and how they are performing.

90-Day Healthy Weight Challenge

PSCteam2At Professional Supplement Center, our staff isn’t just talking the talk about the supplements we sell, but as a result of our 90-Day Healthy Weight Challenge, we have taken up the gauntlet and are literally walking the walk.

Participants are just a couple of weeks into the challenge, but they are already showing great success with over 50 lbs lost!  They are also noticing that they have more energy and feel more satisfied, while actually eating less.  Exercise has become a part of their routines with hours spent walking, running, doing Tai Chi, gardening, kick boxing, or just sweating it out at the gym.

Here’s how the challenge works:

  1. Each participant had a private assessment with Jacquie Eubanks, Professional Supplement Center’s Nurse and health coach, who specializes in developing a plan to optimize one’s health with nutrition along with the informed use of pharmaceutical grade vitamins and supplements.
  2. All participants were given the following supplements:  Nordic Naturals ProOmega Lemon EPA/DHA (fish oil), Douglas Laboratories Multi-Probiotic 15 billion, Enzymedica Digest Gold (a potent digestive enzyme,) and Metagenics PhytoMulti, a multivitamin and mineral formula. 
  3. The participants were divided into three groups based on the weight loss supplement that was deemed best for them by Nurse Eubanks.  Each received one of the following: Ortho Molecular CLA, which supports reducing body fat while increasing muscle tone; Douglas Laboratories Super HCA (garcinia cambogia extract), which aids in normal appetite regulation; or Integrative Therapeutics 7-KETO Lean, which helps burn fat, not muscle, and promotes weight loss.
  4. Nurse Eubanks also counseled on which foods to avoid and which to add in order to optimize their nutrition.
  5. Each participant has been tracking their progress by keeping a daily food diary, noting how they are feeling, and what sort of activity they are doing.
  6. Weekly private weigh-ins with Nurse Eubanks give the participants a chance to further refine their plan on the way to a healthier weight.

 “Having the opportunity to help our staff become more cognizant of what they are putting into their bodies and getting to see the positive results they are experiencing has been a very rewarding experience for me” stated Nurse Eubanks.

 The challenge will end in November, but the hope is that the healthy habits gained over the three months will continue for a lifetime.
