So in my previous post I left you guys a link to what a bariatric surgeon in California says we should use in order to lose weight. I got my order today. Thank you Amazon Prime (and thanks dad for letting me use it!)
1. Digestive Enzymes – I got the Americana Made Digestive Matrix this is one pill twice a day with food.
Digestive enzymes help the body to properly digest the food it is given thereby resulting in increased energy as well as weight loss and an overall feeling of health and wellness. This proprietary blend of digestive enzyme contains 18 varieties which work together to digest various food groups such as sugar, dairy, proteins, carbohydrates, fiber, and plant walls. This results in feeling lighter and prevents issues such as constipation Many people do not realize how important a balanced gut is. Sensations such as bloating fatigue and cramps often result from insufficient food digestion and nutrient absorption. This enzymatic therapy vitamin will make you feel light and full of energy.
2. Probiotic with at least 10 billion – I got the Rima Power Pro 40 Billion Probiotic Natural Formula this is 1capsule in the morning and 1 in the evening.
Power 40 billion probiotics veggie caps provide a balanced and high potency selection of probiotics, live cultures which help restore and maintain the balance of bacteria in the gut, which in consequence help restore health. Effective for men and women. Probiotics, the good bacteria, which suppresses the growth of unwanted, harmful bacteria.
Four select probiotics make part of this formula:
Lactobacillus acidophilus (La-14): Found in the oral cavity, the small intestine, and the vaginal epithelium. It helps break down sugars in the digestive track. Helps control growth of candida, and treats vaginal infections. It is helpful for people with lactose intolerance, because it produces the enzyme lactase which breaks down lactose, the sugar in milk. Increases immune system response.
Bifidobacterium lactis (BI-04): Stimulates immune response. Also fights infections. Helps in decreasing lactose intolerance with continued use. Improves digestion: Effective in resisting acid digestion. Relieves constipation with continued use. Helps decrease colon inflammation.
Lactobacillus plantarum (Lp-115): Creates a barrier in the colon, to protect against harmful bacteria. Controls the growth of yeast, molds and bacteria by creating an unfavorable environment for its growth. Promotes digestive health. Studies suggest it could be an effective treatment for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease, and colitis with continued use
Lactobacillus paracasei (Lpc 37): Immunomodulating Activity, Dental Health Improves energy levels and alleviates chronic fatigue. Lowers cholesterol. Vegan capsules, Made in the USA. Includes the prebiotic FOS, Fructooligosaccharides, to feed and keep the probiotics alive.
3. Caralluma Fimbriata – I got the NutriRise Caralluma Fimbriata Concentrated Formula 1000mg. This is one capsule twice a day about 20 to 30 mins before your meal with 8oz of water. I set a reminder on my phone.
Caralluma 1000 MG is a 100% natural weight loss supplement, appetite suppressant and carb blocker. It works by first, signalling to the hypothalamus in the brain that you feel full – helping you eat less. Second, it STOPS fat cells from forming. The two together make a powerful 1-2 punch for weight loss!
4. Green Tea – I got the cheapest one but had rave reviews Jarrow Formulas Water Extracted Green Tea with 50% polyphenols and 30% catechins.
Jarrow FORMULAS Green Tea 500 is water extracted and consists of 50% polyphenols, including 30% catechins, approximately 15% of which is the important EGCG fraction. The polyphenols in green tea are potent antioxidants and support cardiovascular and immune health.
So I have taken the afternoon doses. I’m going to have dinner in about 30 mins. Day .5 lol
I’m excited to see how this will go. I will do my weight and measurements in the morning.
