Program designed to address the variety of root causes impacting weight gain. Food is "medicine" and what we consume in our bodies can increase stress, inflammation, blood sugar as well as deplete essential nutrients for weight loss. It includes a FDA approved peptide for weight loss, supplements to burn fat for energy and MORE!
Starch and sugar create a biological response to the body, particularly increasing your cortisol levels. Cortisol balance is vital for weight loss, since it plays other roles as well including, blood sugar balance, reduction of inflammation, immune system function and aiding in nutrient metabolism.
Blood sugar and insulin management is the gateway to leading a long, healthy life filled with optimal wellness. Insulin is released in response to glucose in the blood and is the primary hormone involved in fat storage and weight gain. We need to control our insulin to signal to our body that it should burn fat rather than store it.
There is a direct link between chronic inflammation and the ability to release weight. Stress, poor nutrition, and environmental toxins create chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is a response to a larger issue within the body, which can also be linked to disease. Disrupting inflammation will promote weight loss.
Adequate sleep is an important aspect of a weight loss plan. Research demonstrates loss of sleep during a weight loss program can negatively impact the amount of weight released and promote overeating. Neurotransmitters ghrelin and leptin are thought to be central to appetite and lack of sleep creates dysregulation.
Moving toward your best health requires focusing on daily, impactful habits that will make a huge
difference in the long run. Committing to one or two healthy habits per month will bring forth 12-24 new healthy habits for the year, which will promote a healthy lifestyle. A life of optimal wellness will be around the corner.
Semaglutide is an FDA approved weekly peptide injection for weight loss. It increases insulin production ultimately impacting weight loss by decreasing body fat percentage. A study demonstrated individuals released an average of 14.9% of their initial body weight, which was 12.4% more than those who utilized the peptide.
NAD is the second most important coenzyme in the body. NAD and metabolism are intertwined, as NAD plays a crucial role in metabolic chemical reactions in the body. As we age, NAD levels fall, negatively affecting all the metabolic chemical reactions associated with the coenzyme. Boosting NAD levels directly influences metabolism.
5-amino-1mq is an enzyme that enables the ability to burn fat for energy and in turn, significantly reduces body weight and formation of fat cells as well as size. It also can lower plasma cholesterol levels. Results support this enzyme as a therapeutic to reverse diet-induced obesity and related metabolic conditions
Increase energy levels, boost fat metabolism and aid in removal of fat from the body while helping the liver to function properly with an injection of three powerful fat burners, B vitamins, and amino acids. Spring into your step and achieve your goals with the addition of a weekly Melt Away Boosters!
Weekly Body Composition testing to monitor your progress with a FDA cleared Multi-Frequency Bioelectric Impedance Analysis Technology. Testing evaluates weight, body fat, muscle mass, muscle quality score, physique rating, bone mass, visceral fat, metabolic age, total body water, daily caloric intake and BMI.
Nutrient deficiencies can greatly impact the ability to be able to release weight. Supplements included within the program are designed to assist the body in using fat for fuel and to help support healthy insulin, cortisol, and energy metabolism. They provide great support for any weight loss program.

Semaglutide is a Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) produced by the gut. It increases insulin production, a hormone that lowers the blood sugar level while inhibiting glucagon secretion, which is a hormone that raises blood sugar, reduces appetite and energy intake while delaying gastric emptying. In 2017 this drug was approved as an anti-diabetic medication used to treat type 2 diabetes and obesity. In June 2021, it got approved for chronic weight management in obese individuals with a (BMI) ≥ 30 kg/m2) or overweight (initial BMI ≥ 27 kg/m2) with at least one weight-related comorbidity.

Nicotinamide-N-methyltransferase (NNMT), is a cytosolic enzyme with newly identified roles in cellular metabolism and energy homeostasis. Studies indicate that this enzyme slows down the process at which our bodies metabolize fat cells. Most people have a hard time losing weight, and when this enzyme is elevated, they have a more challenging time trying to lose excess pounds of fat. The extra weight leads to an increase in the NNMT enzyme, leading to slower fat metabolism, leading to excess weight gain. It is a vicious cycle. Research suggests a potent NNMT inhibitor "5-amino-1mq" significantly reduced body weight and white adipose mass decreased adipocyte size and lowered plasma total cholesterol levels. These results support the development of small molecule NNMT inhibitors as therapeutics to reverse diet-induced obesity and validate NNMT as a viable target to treat obesity and related metabolic conditions.
