TORONTO, Jan. 15 /CNW/ - Fighting fat seems not a battle for the weak of heart. It's a fact that as obesity continues to grow as a threatening health problem, so too do the physical, mental and emotional factors associated with this issue. For the un-inflicted, it is easy to place weight loss into the category of simplified math - calories in versus calories out. Unfortunately, this linear approach often fails to take into account the emotional and mental underpinnings of poor eating habits, including excessive stress, low self-esteem, and self-defeating attitudes; or the physiological factors, including hormones, such as insulin and blood-sugar control, leptin and appetite; and the metabolic issues, such as low metabolism, reduced muscle mass, and inflammation. If we add lifestyles issues, it is easy to see how bearing the weight of being overweight can become all but insurmountable.
But now there is help - the SHAPE UP System - the first natural health solution with a holistic approach to safely and healthily support individuals physically and emotionally battling the bulge.
The SHAPE UP System was scientifically created through extended meta-analysis of the physiological and psychological effects and benefits of various bioactive nutrients, and with over three years of developmental research into consumer needs and desires. The goal and outcome - a simplified approach for effective weight loss and management, especially in combination with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
SHAPE UP is an advanced system, containing four core products, which help satisfies your appetite, reduces food cravings and increases your metabolism to help shed unwanted pounds and inches. Importantly, SHAPE UP also contains healthy nutraceuticals that support your mental health and mood to help stabilize emotions and reshape your thinking in the face of daily stresses.
The four core products deliver the essential nutrients you need for the optimal body shape and health you want:
1) The SHAPE UP Smoothie has been designed to provide complete nutrition with essential macronutrients, such as premium proteins, healthy fats and fibre, and micro-nutrients, including thermogenic green tea EGCG and blood-sugar-regulating banaba leaf corosolic acid to get your metabolic engine running efficiently. Highly effective as a delicious breakfast smoothie and ideal for those short on time.
2) SHAPE UP Reduce is a bioactive blend of nutrients in capsule form that reinforces the metabolic and physiological processes against excess weight. In the last few years, there have been a number of effective innovations and impressive clinical studies to build credibility for the natural ingredients found in SHAPE UP Reduce. These synergistic ingredients help increase body metabolism and healthy body composition (lean muscle mass), while decreasing appetite and cravings and regulating blood-sugar levels, especially in conjunction with a whole-food diet and regular activity.
3) SHAPE UP Omega-3 - the research spotlight continues to shine on the comprehensive health benefits of omega-3 fish oils. These essential fats not only offer beneficial effects in the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and other inflammatory conditions, but they also support brain function, and healthy mood and behaviour. In small controlled studies, omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to be effective in depression.
Research science is also confirming that a high-potency EPA/DHA formulation, like that found in SHAPE UP Omega 3, can help one lose weight and reduce body fat by increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin, thereby lowering levels correspondingly so that less insulin is produced to regulate blood-sugar levels. Furthermore, omega-3 fish oils can positively affect leptin levels, a hormone that is produced by fat cells and which can suppress appetite and burn fat stored in the adipose tissue.
4) The SHAPE UP Bar - the choice snack for mid-morning or -afternoon. The SHAPE UP Bar, in dreamy vanilla or chocoholic flavours, contains select natural ingredients, premium proteins, healthy fats, fibre, and the bioactive nutrients to support a successful weight-management program.
Based on innovative thinking, scientific research, and consumer feedback, the SHAPE UP System offers a cutting-edge solution to better weight and health goals. Fast, easy and tasty, the SHAPE UP System is designed to fit into the busiest lifestyle with no complicated changes to daily routines. Better yet, SHAPE UP can help one start feeling empowered with enhanced mood, energy, and vitality to tackle weight issues in a conscientious, safe, and effective manner. The far-reaching health benefits of the SHAPE UP System extend beyond just weight reduction. Many of the beneficial ingredients comprising these new products help reduce the health consequences associated with excess weight, protect the body against heart disease, diabetes and cancer, and provide the physical and mental boost needed for optimal well-being.
