5 Fat-Blasting Nutrients Big Pharma DOESN’T Want You to Know About
If you’ve been struggling to lose weight, you are not alone!
It’s easy to understand why the big drug companies don’t want you to know about 5 key nutrients that safely and naturally blast away stubborn fat… and why they want you to buy their weight-loss drugs… even if those drugs come with the risk of addiction and lethal side effects.
The answer (unsurprisingly) is money.
In 2013, U.S. sales of anti-obesity drugs totaled about $114 million. In their first quarter of 2016, California-based Orexigen Therapeutics alone made $13 million from the sale of their diet drug Contrave, and the big drug companies are just getting started. With obesity rates in America rising despite healthier eating habits and exercise, Big Pharma sees the potential to make billions convincing people their drugs are the best and only solution to lose unwanted fat.
There’s just one major obstacle standing in their way right now.
Doctors are currently reluctant to prescribe weight-loss drugs because they fear a repeat of past diet-pill disasters, like the now-banned drug Pondimin (a.k.a. Fen Phen). In 1997, the FDA shut Pondimin down because it caused vascular heart disease and damage to lung tissues, just like the drug Redux (also shut down in 1997). And doctors’ fears appear well-founded because the diet drugs that are currently on the market carry equally alarming side effects:
Despite the evidence, many “obesity experts” claim weight-loss drugs are good for people, and believe doctors just need more training and education before the drugs can really take off. And as Big Pharma no doubt has plans to “educate” and incentivize doctors as they’ve historically done to get prescriptions flying, the big drug companies want you to believe that the 5 all-natural weight-loss nutrients that I’m about to share with you are some kind of witch’s brew that should be burned in the village square for your protection…
Historically doctors have been incentivized to get prescriptions flying and keep it thay way, so the big drug companies want you to believe that the 5 all-natural weight-loss nutrients that I’m about to share with you are some kind of witch’s concoction...
…but you don’t have to fall for their tricks and lies. And you definitely don’t have to fall for their dangerous drugs just so they can cut themselves bigger bonus checks.
You deserve the truth when it comes to safely and effectively losing unwanted weight… so here it is:
Whether diet and exercise are part of your healthy weight-loss plan, here are the 5 top natural ingredients that obliterate fat without risk of habituation or side effects.
Green Coffee Beans
Drinking green coffee may be an acquired taste. However, when it comes to weight loss, the benefits far outweigh the astringent, bitter flavor.
The secret to green coffee’s weight-loss power is Chlorogenic Acid (CGA), a natural fat-burning polyphenol that’s destroyed when coffee beans are roasted. CGA keeps its full fat-melting strength and is readily absorbed by the body when extracted from unroasted beans. Of all the species in the plant kingdom, green coffee beans have the largest concentration of CGA. Between the two major classes of beans (Arabica and Robusta), Robusta beans have roughly twice the CGA levels of the more common Arabica beans, and you don’t have to look far to discover the hard science supporting CGA’s fat-fighting strength.
CGA works in two main ways. First, CGA reduces blood-sugar levels to prevent weight gain and control food cravings. At the same time, CGA inhibits blood-sugar release from diet to protect against future weight gain. Second, CGA boosts metabolism to burn stored fat while increasing overall energy.
To get the fat-blasting strength of green coffee working for you today, you can look for unroasted coffee beans at specialty shops. And depending on how much time you have each day, there are a variety of ways to prepare the beans, from grinding to overnight soaking in water. Or you can buy prepared pellets or powders. Just remember than green coffee beans can still contain caffeine. So look for decaffeinated green-coffee products if you want to avoid the jitters, the crash and possible habituation caused by caffeine.
Also, you’ll likely need to prepare and drink more than a few cups of green coffee each day (depending on the CGA level of the product you use). In one research study published in The Journal of International Medical Research, participants lost an average of 5.4 pounds over 12 weeks by drinking five cups a day of a prepared green coffee product. So you’ll definitely need to set aside enough time each day to make sure those cups get filled.
If shopping, grinding and/or soaking beans each day doesn’t work for your busy schedule, look for an all-natural decaffeinated green coffee bean extract in supplement form that’s been sourced from quality Robusta coffee beans. That way, you get all the fat-blasting and energy-boosting power of CGA without the crash and habituation of caffeine, and without the hassle of spending hours in your kitchen every day.
Ashwagandha may not be a household name in America. Yet as one of the most important and powerful herbs in Ayurveda medicine (the traditional system of medicine in India), Ashwagandha has been known, used and trusted for over 2,000 years as a potent and reliable healing herb that relieves stress and stops weight gain in its tracks.
Also known as Indian ginseng, Ashwagandha (native to India and Africa) is a plump shrub that belongs to the same family as the tomato. Traditionally, the leaves and berries are prepared and applied externally to treat tumors, skin boils (a.k.a. carbuncles) and ulcers. The berries can also be used as a substitute for rennet in cheese-making. However, in Western healing, the root is used for weight loss because it’s rich in adaptogens.
As a natural substance combining amino acids and vitamins, adaptogens help naturally lower and control stress. This means, Ashwagandha controls weight gain by controlling release of the stress hormone cortisol, which causes unwanted weight by signaling your body to store fat—especially around your waist and hips. And science shows Ashwagandha works even if you’re a chronic worrier.
In clinical studies published in the Indian Journal of Psychological Medicine, 64 subjects with a history of chronic stress were given either 300mg of Ashwagandha root extract or a placebo over 60 days. At the end of the study, the Ashwagandha group tested significantly lower for stress and cortisol levels than the placebo group, and no adverse effects from Ashwagandha were reported.
While you can find Ashwagandha in many forms (from powders to caplets), you want to be careful about possible heavy metal contamination (which includes Ayurveda preparations). The denser the population center in which Ashwagandha has been grown, the higher the risk of contamination from heavy metals like lead, cadmium, arsenic and mercury. Look for preparations that are certified organic, and make sure the supplier has had their product third-party tested and produced in certified facilities. Or for easy peace of mind—and a stronger, safer, more effective form of Ashwagandha—look for something called Sensoril.
As the name of the safest, most effective Ashwagandha extract available to date, Sensoril also represents an exclusive, double-patented process that amplifies the fat-fighting power of Ashwagandha by 2-3 times. Where other Ashwagandha extracts only use the root, Sensoril merges the best of Ayurveda herbal traditions with an advanced extraction technology to harness both the adaptogens in Ashwagandha roots and natural fat-fighting compounds found in the leaves called glycowithanolides. This extraction process is unique to Sensoril and can’t be duplicated by other manufacturers. All Sensoril root and leaf extracts are non-GMO, 95% organic compliant, allergen-free and gluten-free, and rigorous toxicity testing that meet FDA guidelines is why Sensoril has an unsurpassed safety record.
Green tea isn’t just a refreshing drink that’s loaded with antioxidants to lower your risk of cancer and boost brain health. Green tea helps burn fat by boosting energy, and it has nothing to do with caffeine.
In studies published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, a group of overweight men were given either green tea or a placebo over 12 weeks. At the end of the study, subjects who drank green tea lost twice as much visible weight as the placebo group, and lost four times as much subcutaneous abdominal fat (a region associated with higher risk of chronic diseases).
In separate studies (also published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition), 10 overweight men were randomly either green tea or a placebo three times over a 24-hour period. At the end of the study, subjects who consumed green tea increased metabolism to burn 65–200 extra calories, but it had nothing to do with caffeine. In fact, the study showed caffeine had no effect on fat loss.
The secret to green tea’s fat-blasting strength comes from Epigallocatechin Gallate (or, EGCG), a plant phenol that keeps your fat-burning furnace stoked. Found in trace amounts in apple skin, pecans and onions, EGCG is unlike other common weight-loss agents that stimulate hormone release and therefore tend to raise heart rate and blood pressure. EGCG works through a different mechanism. By inhibiting the enzyme that breaks down the hormone norepinephrine (similar to adrenaline), EGCG increases and sustains energy to burn more fat with no negative effects. As well, EGCG has been shown to crush food cravings and stop fat storage.
The downside to consuming EGCG naturally from green tea, of course, is caffeine. A typical cup of green tea has about 25-29mgs of caffeine (or, about the same as a cup of brewed black tea). Yet even if you don’t mind the rush and crash of caffeine, the real problem is that EGCG has a very low bioavailability on its own. It requires a dietary helper so you can experience its full fat-blasting effects, and the best nutrient for the job (featured next) is one you’d never put in your tea.
Few people would consider grinding black pepper into green tea (or any tea). Yet to get the full fat-burning power of EGCG (the plant phenol found in green tea), you need black pepper as the dietary helper that makes EGCG’s full fat-melting power available to your body.
More specifically, you need peperine. (Grinding black pepper directly into green tea will barely enhance EGCG absorption, if at all.)
As the alkaloid that gives black pepper its pungent aroma, piperine increases the bioavailability of EGCG by inhibiting glucuronidation, the process your body uses to make substances water-soluble. In other words, a cup of green tea on its own can be refreshing and delicious. However, without piperine, EGCG quickly becomes water-soluble and passes from your body through urination.
Said another way, if you’re using a green-tea product without piperine to help with weight loss, you’re literally flushing your money away. When partnered with piperine, EGCG becomes better available for your body to use, and the pounds begin to vanish.
The trick to getting EGCG working for you today is to find the right product with the right form of green tea extract that’s been partnered with the right form and amount of piperine. Or you can buy bags or bottles of piperine, and experiment in your kitchen with different amounts in different green teas to see what works best for you. Or you can look for EGCG that’s been partnered with Bioperine.
Just like Sensoril is the safest, most potent and most effective form of the fat-fighting Ashwagandha herb, Bioperine is the only product sourced out of peperine to obtain a patented status for its ability to increase the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. GRAS-certified and trusted for over 20 years, Bioperine is standardized to a minimum of 95% pure peperine, and studies show Bioperine fast-tracks weight loss by enhancing the absorption of dietary nutrients by 30% - 60%.
In addition to boosting the weight-loss effects of EGCG, Bioperine also boosts dietary absorption of Vitamin C, Selenium, Beta-Carotene, Vitamin A, Vitamin B6 and Coenzyme Q10.
As the most popular pick-me-up on the planet, coffee can seem like the perfect energy booster to get up, get active and shed some of those stubborn pounds. Yet coffee (or any other caffeine product) comes with a cost… an energy crash… the jitters… and the high risk of habituation. That’s why top athletes choose Theacrine, which offers all the energy-boosting benefits of caffeine without the cost and crash.
Found in its highest levels in the bitter-tasting Chinese tea called kudingcha (which literally translates as “bitter nail tea”), Theacrine is an alkaloid similar in structure to caffeine and boosts energy by causing adenosine signaling changes just like coffee or tea. The big difference with Theacrine is that it boosts energy about twice as much as caffeine but doesn’t cause an energy crash. In addition to that, Theacrine helps reduce stress and anxiety (where caffeine can cause such conditions). As an analgesic, Theacrine reduces muscle soreness after workouts. It’s non-habit forming, and where too much caffeine can lead to restlessness and insomnia, Theacrine has sedative properties when taken 30 minutes before bed… and that’s the big drawback of Theacrine in natural tea form.
Even if you can find a good kudingcha tea online or at an herbalist’s shop… and even if you work hard to get past the bitter, grassy taste… the tea still comes with caffeine unless you specifically search for the caffeine-free Ligustrum genus. Otherwise the caffeine in kudingcha tea works against the energy-boosting benefits of Theacrine...
…which is why top athletes, motivated professionals and even driven gamers avoid the risks and trouble of kudingcha tea and instead choose TeaCrine.
As a bioactive, non-habituating version of Theacrine that offers all the energy-boosting benefits without the crash and habituation of caffeine, TeaCrine works naturally with your body’s metabolism to boost your energy for longer, stronger workouts with no reported negative side effects.
In controlled studies, 60 healthy men and women took either TeaCrine (200–300mg) or a placebo over 8 weeks. At the end of the study, the TeaCrine group experienced significant increases in energy, focus and concentration, and were more motivated to exercise. Fasting markers for heart rate, blood pressure, lipid profiles and biomarkers for liver and kidney function were normal. There was no tachyphylactic response typical of neuroagents like caffeine or other stimulants, and no evidence of habituation was noted.
Said another way:
In a fiercely competitive world where being your very best every day is essential, TeaCrine doesn’t just safely and effectively boost energy for improved workouts and weight loss. As a key nutritional supplement that takes the ache out of exercise, TeaCrine offers a uniquely competitive advantage over those who still believe caffeine alone is enough to keep them sharp, alert and on top of the game.

Dedicated to helping you achieve optimal health and wellness,
If you can’t remember the last time you checked your blood pressure, you’re long overdue. As a leading cause of heart attack, heart disease, stroke and kidney disease, high blood pressure has no symptoms.
Did you know that roughly 1 in 3 American adults has high blood pressure? Yet only about half of these people have it under control, and the statistic is due in part to some common misconceptions.
Hello. This is Dr. Ben, Chief Medical Advisor here at Optimal Health Products, pointing out something important that you may not realize about the toxins in your body.
Most people believe that having a healthy heart is either a matter of good genetics ("he’s just lucky") or a strict diet ("I just have to give up salt").
The truth is, genetics and food choices are NOT the root cause of your struggle to rid your body of the risk of heart disease and a potential heart attack or stroke, no matter how hard you try. Your high blood pressure, bad cholesterol and high blood sugar have little to do with bad genes or ANY of the most common things believed to cause heart disease.
Your struggle to protect and even heal your heart comes down to 3 little-known factors that your doctor might not even know about!
In the next few minutes, I'm going to show you how a weird herb has been shown to STOP these 3 little-known problems dead in their tracks so your blood pressure stabilizes, your cholesterol and blood-sugar levels improve and you get the heart-health results you want while no longer worrying about heart attack or stroke.
But before I do, however, it’s extremely important to understand the three critical things that must take place to STOP the potential of heart disease, including the possibility of a heart attack or stroke:
Sugar is necessary for survival. Blood sugar (or, blood glucose) refers to sugar that’s introduced into the bloodstream to supply needed energy to all the cells in the body. Our bodies are made to regulate those levels, making sure they’re neither too high nor too low.
Unfortunately, sugar is made from the food we eat. Our digestive system breaks down carbs from food and sends them straight to our bloodstream as glucose, a simple sugar that converts to energy. However, glucose can only enter the cells via insulin.
Unbalanced insulin levels result in either type 1 diabetes (also known as insulin sensitivity, or too low levels) or type 2 diabetes (too high levels).
This means, the higher your insulin levels, the higher your chance of diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM), a disease that literally damages the structure and function of your heart.
Insulin doesn’t care whether your blood sugar is at a healthy level. Its only concern is that you do not starve and have the ability to produce energy for your body to burn.
The big, ugly problem: Unless you do something to “short-circuit” this biological need to feed your cells, you’ll never have the heart health you want and deserve.
It begins with maintaining your insulin levels, because modern living—along with diets full of refined sugars and other challenges—have made it so most of us are nearly insulin-unbalanced all the time. This not only makes eating right nearly impossible, it also makes choosing when and how often to eat MUCH harder.
Think about the last time you were ravenously hungry? You began to feel weak and dizzy, right? You began to feel yourself shutting down—and that’s exactly what insulin issues can do.
Whether you’ve heard of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) or “good” cholesterol (HDL), I assure you. They’re having a MASSIVE effect on the health of your blood.
LDL cholesterol is considered bad because it creates plaque, a thick, hard deposit that can clog arteries, making them less flexible. (This is known as atherosclerosis.) Eventually, a clot can form, blocking a narrowed artery, often resulting in heart attack or stroke. Another condition called peripheral artery disease can develop when plaque buildup and narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to the limbs (usually the legs). Either scenario often results in death or life-altering consequences.
HDL cholesterol is considered good because it aids in removing LDL cholesterol from the arteries. Scientists believe HDL acts as a scavenger, carrying LDL cholesterol away from the arteries and safely back to the liver, where it’s broken down and passed from the body.
A healthy level of HDL cholesterol will protect against heart attack and stroke, while low levels of HDL cholesterol have been shown to increase the risk of heart disease.
Without properly balanced cholesterol and blood-sugar levels, your heart valves become restricted with plaque buildup, and that leads to a damaged and unhealthy heart. All this combined begins to affect other parts of your body and internal organs because they are starved of needed oxygen and blood that is pumped to them by your heart. After years of unhealthy eating, unbalanced cholesterol and blood-sugar levels all over the place, your overall heart health begins to deteriorate. In worse cases, not protecting your heart health can lead to major damage resulting in the need for heart surgery or a heart transplant. In the worst case, deteriorated hearth health can lead to death.
And it gets worse with each passing year, not only making it harder to avoid heart disease but actually causing you to GET A HEART ATTACK OR STROKE—no matter how hard you try to avoid it.
Your stress levels increase. The number you see on the blood-pressure monitor goes up and perhaps worst of all, you begin to live your life in complete fear and feel like your heart is a bomb waiting to go off.
This vicious cycle not only accelerates with each passing year, it begins to compromise other parts of your health. Your sleep quality drops. Your stress begins to affect those around you. You stay away from strenuous activities including all exercise, and those things accelerate the cycle yet again.
Each time, the cycle speeds up, which is why heart disease is often so accelerated later in life.
This is pretty disheartening for anyone looking to maintain healthy blood levels and transform their heart health.
What if you could balance your blood sugar, lower your bad cholesterol, maintain good cholesterol, naturally control your blood pressure and get rid of the fear of a heart attack or stroke?
If you could do that, you could essentially turn your heart into a well-run machine, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Can you just imagine how much more safe you’d feel if these 3 hidden dangers of heart disease were no longer standing in the way of a healthy heart?
Well, there is a way to fix these dangers, get your blood pressure under control, maintain healthy cholesterol levels and balance your blood-sugar levels.
The solution not only works on a deeper cellular level but also in your overall well-being. So the results are rapidly felt, deep and long-term.
The solution you’re about to discover only takes one minute or less to implement. So there’s absolutely NO REASON why you have to be a victim of heart disease that so many needlessly suffer through.
Introducing our 100% all-natural proprietary blend called StrictionBP. This unique but extremely effective supplement has been scientifically created to safely protect your heart from damage.
StrictionBP uses a “magical” little extract called Ceylon Cinnamon from an amazing herb that grows selectively in Sri Lanka.
Randomized-controlled research published on type 2 diabetes demonstrated the significant effect Ceylon Cinnamon can have regarding blood-sugar levels.
These results were pooled together with results from a recent study and published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
These results were not accomplished by every brand of the supplement, but rather only quality-sourced Ceylon Cinnamon.
After 4 weeks of supplementing with 120 mg of quality-sourced Ceylon Cinnamon per day, test subjects (543 patients) saw significantly reduced levels of fasting plasma glucose (blood sugar) from -40.52 to -8.67, and an increase of good cholesterol (HDL) from 1.09 to 2.24 while decreasing the bad cholesterol (LDL) from 17.21 to -1.63.
The effects of Ceylon Cinnamon extract work 5 different ways:
By naturally balancing your blood sugar, cholesterol levels and blood pressure, you’re unlikely to ever develop conditions like insulin resistance, diabetes and heart disease.
You optimize your heart health, protect it from heart disease and you can lose the fear of a catastrophic heart attack or stroke!
Now, what if you could get all of these proven heart-health benefits in the form of an easy-to-take daily capsule that protects your heart without you having to change your diet, spend hours at a gym or giving up any of your favorite activities?
Now, you could learn about these powerful ingredients and then try to independently source the individual ingredients. The problem is, after you’ve found all the products and sources, purchased minimum quantities of each (which is often a large amount), paid shipping on each, and sorted through a huge stage of studies on the most effective dose of each one needed to help balance your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and blood sugar, you’ll literally have spent weeks or months of time, and hundreds (if not thousands!) of dollars—and you’ll have waited all that time to even begin to make progress.
These critical ingredients, along with some additional compounds that further enhance their overall effectiveness, have been combined into one proven, all-natural, scientifically researched, easy-to-take supplement called StrictionBP, and it’s by far one of the most exciting, unique formulas I’ve ever had the opportunity to work on.
Just take it once each morning and again each night. You just let this incredible supplement work its magic!
As the research overviewed has shown, this nutrient already has a rapid and noticeable effect on your blood pressure, cholesterol levels and blood sugar. Yet when you combine them all, the results are truly unsurpassed.
StrictionBP is the ONLY way to get this clinically proven ingredient to help STOP the deadly accumulation of plaque and balance your blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure, and win the war against heart disease once and for all.
