Dr Oz Shares Powerful Skin Health Story

Last week I was part of an exciting  scientific skincare line launch and yesterday it was discussed at The Doctor Oz Show! My skin is more radiant and glowing since I been using Celavive. I have used it daily since last August and loving the results. I use the dry/sensitive regimen and have found the products work so well as a system.

If you have ever had a professional facial, you have experienced the numerous steps and processes an aesthetician offers.  They understand the skin, and how the skin performs best with a layering approach for a product’s ability to penetrate deep into several layers of skin.

Dr Oz featured the Vitalizing Serum, a specific product in my  new system.

What Is A Serum?

Serums are considered the magic elixir in every skincare regimen. Serums are made up of tiny molecules that penetrate deeply into the skin to deliver a high concentration of active nutrienting ingredients.

I  have been using the  serum regularly since August and my skin is definitely firmer, smoother and more hydrated.

I apply the Vitalizing Serum to my  entire face, neck, and décolletage after  the cleanser and toner and  before the final moisturizer, both day and night.

Do you have this powerful step in your skincare system?  If not, you could be missing this layer of active nutritious ingredients so vitally important to the specific needs of your skin. Be sure to choose a brand formulated with peptides and botanicals to help achieve smooth and flawless skin. When using a serum designed for your skin type, it can transform and vitalize your skin and its performance within days.  It is worth its weight in gold!

Alzheimer’s is a brain form of diabetes

I attended Dr Roizen’s Integrative Medicine Conference  this past weekend in Las Vegas and the big take away for me was….Diabetics have twice the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s is a brain form of diabetes. In Alzheimer’s, insulin is not very effective in the brain. Consequently, the brain cells practically starve to death.

Insulin is the hormone that tells cells to absorb  sugar from the blood. In type 2 diabetes, the body’s cells resist insulin, leading to elevated blood sugar levels and less sugar for the insulin-resistant cells.  If  brain cells (otherwise known as neurons) become insulin resistant, you put yourself at risk for Alzheimer’s.

 In her research, Dr. DeLaMonte blocked the path of insulin to rats’ brains — a condition similar to insulin resistance. The rats eventually showed signs of Alzheimer’s and their brains eventually deteriorated.

THE BOTTOM LINE – Too much sugar in your diet can lead to insulin resistance, which potentially starves your brain of sugar and leads to Alzheimer’s. This, for me, adds another dimension to why I spend so much time running monthly SUGAR BUSTER GROUPS!!! Our brain needs it.

 

 

How Are Glycemic Index and Weight Gain Related?

Often we are told weight gain is just about lack of willpower. Well, listen up. because the science tells us something different.

Insulin is a fat storage hormone.

Let me say that again. Insulin is a fat storage hormone.

 

When the insulin receptors do not work properly, the body thinks there is not enough insulin to get glucose in the cells and more insulin is secreted. The muscle cells are quick to become resistant, so the glucose from a meal finds its way to the insulin receptors on the fat cells to be converted to energy AND to make matters worse, the abdominal fat cells load up The weight goes on around the WAISTLINE (what I call TOXIC WAIST or SPARE TIRE SYNDROME)

This is why a WAIST CIRCUMFERENCE test is a useful indicator of insulin resistance.
