No Carb Foods and Diet Plan | MD-Health.com

Posted: November 13, 2018 at 4:40 pm

Carbohydrates (carbs) are compounds that can be converted to saccharides or sugars. The two types of carbs are simple monosaccharides and complex polysaccharides. The simple carbs are those found in fruit, pasta and white sugar. The complex carbohydrates are harder to digest, making them more filling and providing the body with more energy. These complex carbs are those found in rice, vegetables and whole grain cereal and bread.

Carbohydrates account for many calories in the normal person’s diet because they so readily convert to starch and then to sugar. One way to lose weight is to cut carbs out of the diet – that is, only eat food items that do not contain any carbohydrates.

If you decide to go on a diet without carb, it is important that you understand that this diet should not be one you stay on for the rest of your life. Prolonged lack of carbohydrates in your diet may cause health problems such as confusion and muscle cramping. However, a diet without carb over a short period can help you lose weight relatively quickly. In order to stay on this diet, you should know what foods are carbohydrate-free.

Fortunately, there are foods in most food groups that do not contain carbs. This makes it relatively easy to get a variety of foods when you are on a no carb diet. Some examples of foods that do not contain carbohydrates include:

Often, the hardest part of starting a new diet is planning meals during the first few days. To get started, use the menu plans below and alter them to fit your own taste.

Sermorelin Acetate Cost, Review of Benefits and Comparison …

Posted: November 12, 2018 at 9:40 am

hGH Replacement Therapy has been a popular Anti-Aging and performance enhancing treatment since as early as 1990, but unfortunately, use of hGH does not come without risks.

Sermorelin acetate has become a popular alternative as it enables you to obtain the benefits of hGH Therapy, without the associated risks.

This article looks more closely at the benefits of Sermorelin injections as a hGH alternative and the cost associated with it.

To begin with, it is a good idea to have an understanding of what sermorelin acetate is and what role it plays when administered via injection.

Scientifically sermorelin acetate is referred to as growth hormone releasing factor 129 NH2-acetate, this is because it is a peptide which contains the first 29 amino acids that make up growth hormone produced in our bodies.

This contributes to sermorelins function as a growth hormone secretagogue (a substance which causes another substance to be secreted Wikipedia) in this case, the substance whose secretion is promoted is growth hormone.

For this reason, sermorelin is often also referred to as an hGH stimulator and is considered an excellent alternative to hGH.

One important thing to understand about Sermorelin is that it promotes healthy function of the pituitary (the gland responsible for our bodys production of hGH) during the aging process.

This is a far cry from aggressive administration of hGH which can, in fact, negatively impact normal pituitary function.

Another distinct advantage of using sermorelin instead of hGH is the cost involved.

hGH typically costs $1000+ per month of treatment, sermorelin is a much more affordable option with 3 months treatment of sermorelin costing significantly less than just one month on hGH.

In fact, sermorelin is available at as low as $290 per month for a 9mg vial.

POPULAR

Anti-Aging Peptides

Sermorelin 9mg

GHRP-2

GHRP-6

From $292 per month

Performance Peptides

Sermorelin 9mg

GHRP-2 9mg

GHRP-6 9mg

From $317 per month

Besides the obvious advantages of sermorelin injections detailed above, you may want to know how you can benefit from using this therapy.

Perhaps the easiest way to understand the potential benefits of hGh replacement therapy is to look at the symptoms of hGH decline and the effect hGH replacement has on those symptoms.

These are detailed below:

Changes in body composition due to decreasing levels of hGH are reflected by a decrease in lean body mass (muscle) and an increase in fat mass.

Correcting hGH levels has been shown to reverse this state by improving muscle mass and reducing fat.

Research indicates that hGH deficiency in adults contributes to a reduction in bone density and therefore increased risk of osteoporosis.

It has also been shown that hGH replacement therapy for greater than 12 months results in improved bone mineral density and hence, lower risk of osteoporosis.

Due to changes in body composition detailed above, muscle strength is understandably compromised. As hGH therapy corrects body composition and improves muscle mass, muscle strength also improves.

The best results are gained after 12 months of hGH therapy.

By improving bone mineral density and increasing muscle mass and strength, hGH therapy can help to prevent joint deterioration that is a feature of arthritis.

Optimal growth hormone levels are also essential for health of connective tissue such as the synovium found in joints.

Exercise performance is reduced in individuals with growth hormone deficiency. This appears to be partially due to reductions in bone density and muscle mass but also in part due to a reduction in oxygen uptake.

hGH therapy for 6 months has been shown to improve exercise performance by improving muscle mass and also oxygen uptake

There is evidence of a greater risk of heart disease in individuals with growth hormone deficiency and it has been hypothesized that this is due to a greater propensity to develop premature atherosclerosis (a build-up of plaque inside the arteries which increases risk of heart attack and stroke).

Growth hormone deficiency also results in changes in heart size and function. These changes have been demonstrated to be reversed after 6 months hGH therapy.

Growth hormone deficiency results in a reduced resting metabolism and replacement therapy reverses this decrease. hGH therapy has also been shown to increase protein synthesis, increase fat oxidation, normalize carbohydrate metabolism and reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol.

These favorable effects on metabolism may in part explain some of the other benefits of hGH including improved hearth health and body composition.

A reduction in skin thickness and all-important skin collagen is another result of growth hormone deficiency. Both conditions are improved by hGH therapy.

Although adults with growth hormone deficiency are not normally considered to have a compromised immune system, there is some evidence to suggest that hGH therapy can help regulate immune function.

It has been demonstrated that people with growth hormone deficiency have more difficulty with sexual relationships and reportedly, lower energy levels.

Many individuals have found an improvement in energy, libido and sexual performance following hGH therapy, some men even claiming an improvement in problems with premature ejaculation.

Reduced psychological well-being has been reported in individuals with growth hormone deficiency and hGH replacement has resulted in improvements in mood, energy and general feelings of well-being.

PS1000 Program Review – Is It Effective …

Amino Acids

Amino acids are the chemical units or building blocks of the body that make up proteins. Protein substances make up the muscles, tendons, organs, glands, nails, and hair, and the growth, repair, and maintenance of all cells are dependent upon them. Next to water, protein makes up the greatest portion of our body weight. The amino acids included are as follows:

Arginine aids in weight loss, as it facilitates an increase in muscle mass and a reduction of body fat. It also assists in the release of growth hormones that are crucial for optimal muscle growth and tissue repair.*

Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in muscles; it helps build and maintain muscle tissue, and it also helps prevent muscle wasting, decreases sugar cravings, and the desire for alcohol.*

Glycine retards muscle degeneration and it improves glycogen storage, freeing up glucose for energy needs.*

Ornithine helps to prompt the release of growth hormones that promote the metabolism of excess body fat (this effect is enhanced if combined with Arginine).*

Valine is needed for muscle metabolism and coordination, tissue repair, and for the maintenance of proper nitrogen balance in the body; it is also used as an energy source by muscle tissue.*

Serine is needed for the proper metabolism of fats and fatty acids, the growth of muscle, and the maintenance of a healthy immune system.*

Tyrosine is important to overall metabolism; it is a precursor of adrenaline and dopamine, which regulate mood and stimulate metabolism and the nervous system; it also acts as a mood elevator, suppresses the appetite, and helps reduce body fat.*

Glutamic Acid is an excitatory neurotransmitter for the central nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord; it is important in the metabolism of sugars and fats.*

These other natural supplements are also included to aid in increasing energy, stamina and endurance, reducing fat, improving mood, and providing additional nutrients to support the PS1000 plan.*

Maca is a Peruvian root known to help improve energy and stamina, improve the quality of sleep, and reduce stress. It contains many fatty acids, minerals and vitamins such as calcium, magnesium, silica, amino acids, antioxidants, alkaloids and sterols; Maca can be an aid in any diet.*

Beta-Alanine is a naturally occurring beta amino acid that promotes high energy levels and increases endurance. It does this by promoting carnosine, a substance that has a critical role in muscle endurance because it protects against muscle failure. Beta-Alanine has been shown to help increase strength and reduce body fat.*

Rhodiola, more commonly known as goldenrod, is a plant that is known to improve physical and mental performance, reduce fatigue, enhance mood, and improve endurance. Rhodiola is also known for helping to strengthen the nervous system, enhance memory, aid weight reduction, and reduce recovery time for illness or injury.*

African Mango (Irvingia gabonensis) enhances the activity of a the hormone Leptin that plays a crucial role in controlling appetite and optimizing metabolism.*

Glucomannan is a soluble, fermentable, and highly viscous dietary fiber derived from the root of Amorphophallus konjac (aka elephant yam or konjac plant) and is native to Asia. When consumed, it absorbs water in the digestive tract, reducing absorption of carbohydrates and cholesterol by the body, supporting the use of glucomannan for cholesterol reduction, diabetes, and weight loss.*

The vitamin B12 Complex is added to the PS1000 plan to increase energy and raise the metabolism. B vitamins help the body convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which is burned to produce energy. These B vitamins, often referred to as B complex vitamins, also help the body metabolize fats and protein.*

Methyl B-12, derived from methylcobalamin and has a much higher bioavailability than the form most widely available in supplements, cyanocobalamin.*

Their B6 is derived from Pyridoxal 5 Phosphate (P-5-P) and is five times more absorbable than other B6s. B6 is required for proper absorption of vitamin B12.*

Niacin (Vitamin B3) known to help produce hormones that are beneficial to the body. Niacin helps to improve circulation and reduce cholesterols and is important to the health of the nervous system, digestive system, skin, eyes, and hair.*

Vitamin E is added, as the conversion of B12 into its biologically active form requires vitamin E.*

Zinc supports the production of hydrochloric acid and intrinsic factor in the stomach, both of which are needed to convert some of the B12 from food sources.*

Potassium is essential for proper functioning of the heart, kidneys, muscles, nerves, and digestive system.*
