There have been plenty of diets on the market that have cut out carbohydrates completely. While people might find they could lose some weight that first week, the results wouldn’t stick once they incorporated carbs again.

Posted by Liza Muravyeva MS RD LD/N on Apr 30, 2012 6:07:00 AM

Coconuts have been around for hundreds of years, but now all the new hype is revolved around virgin coconut oil! In the past coconut oil has been regarded as being bad, due to the saturated fat content. However, virgin coconut oil is not the same type of oil as saturated hydrogenated oil that goes through processing and is added to foods for an extended shelf life. Coconuts have been used for the past 4000 years according to Sansrkit documentation in Ayuvedic medicine, to treat heart problems, hair loss and even burns.

THYROVEX™ - New VPX Product

Posted by VPX Sports on Apr 10, 2012 10:52:00 AM

Thyrovex™ is a standalone product designed as a powerful thyroid support supplement and the answer to a sluggish metabolism. Thyrovex™ boosts metabolism, increases energy expenditure and enhances thermogenesis.
  
Thyroid hormones have many important functions in the body. One of the most important properties of thyroid hormones is fat burning, which delivers a great deal of sustained natural energy without any stimulants. Environmental pollutants, aging, and exposure to fluoride in our drinking water and toothpaste all lower thyroid activity by different mechanisms. As a result you can have low thyroid hormone levels, less energy, and the inability to maintain a low body fat. To learn more about how the thyroid functions, read our last blog article “How your Thyroid helps you burn FAT”.

How your Thyroid helps you burn FAT

Posted by Liza Muravyeva MS RD LD/N on Apr 5, 2012 1:50:00 PM

What exactly is it?

Your thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped gland that is located in the front of your neck, and is responsible for many different functions in the body such as producing key hormones, regulating your body’s temperature, weight and even your mood (1). Here is a little bit of the science, the two classic hormones the thyroid produces are called thyroxine and triiodothyronine, which are also known as T4 and T3. T4 is converted to T3 which is more biologically active than T4. Having the proper balance of these hormones is an important part of a healthy and active body.
