STARBODIES™ Metabolism Power Multi Vitamin

– 3 Capsules with breakfast

From food alone, it is very difficult for you to get the proper amounts of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants needed to help your body run at its demanding levels.

In today’s world, with busy lifestyles, most often nutritious meals are skipped, and when you don’t take time to eat, your food choices aren’t always the healthiest. Because you don’t always consume a perfect diet plan, it is that much more important to include the STARBODIES™ Metabolism Power Multi in your daily diet. This will ensure that you are supplying your body with all the essential nutrients to keep from being deficient, and give your body the help it needs to stay at it’s top level to fight off diseases, and metabolize and burn food for energy at a very efficient level.

Supplementing your diet with the STARBODIES™ Metabolism Power Multi takes the guesswork out and gives your body all the essential nutrients to help burn body fat efficiently and perform at an elite level.

Calcium/Magnesium

- 1000mg daily ( for men & women ages 19 to 50)
- 1200mg daily (for menopausal women 51 & older)
- 800mg daily (for children)

Calcium/Magnesium is needed for your teeth and bones, while also helping to prevent osteoporosis and other degenerating bodily diseases. If you cannot tolerate milk, or you’re following a low carbohydrate diet and not consuming milk, your calcium needs are not being met. Including a Calcium supplement to your diet will assist you in meeting your calcium/magnesium requirements.

Glutamine

On training days Taken before workout
Taken after workout
Taken before bedtime
On non-training days Taken in a.m.
Taken before bedtime


When your body is under stress, whether it’s stress from everyday life or the stress you put your body under during a workout, a stress hormone called cortisol is released. This hormone causes your muscles to breakdown to provide your body with amino acids for tissue repair and assist your immune system. This stress hormone, cortisol, also causes your body to store fat; this is a bodily survival mechanism. Glutamine blocks cortisol.

Also, when you are sleeping at night, your body is repairing and building itself from the stresses and work it has gone through during the daytime. You do not want your body to break down lean muscle tissue during the night. So, going 6-8 hours at night without nourishment for your muscles that you are trying to build is not a good thing. You need to take glutamine before bedtime to block any muscle-breakdown; you want to build lean muscle mass, not lose it while you sleep. (Remember; Muscle = Metabolism).

An example of the very important role that glutamine plays is as follows: Remember, while exercising, you are tearing down your muscles, and on your non-training days or at rest, you are re-building your muscles. When at rest, if your body detects a tear in a muscle, your body will attack that tear in that muscle (kind of like the immune system fighting off a cold), to break it back down (kind of like sloughing it off), to supply your body with more amino acids to make other repairs.

You do not want your body to waste any lean muscle tissue that you’re trying to build. Remember, glutamine blocks that hormone, cortisol, giving your body more time to repair that muscle instead of wasting it.

The STARBODIES™ Whey To Muscle shakes are loaded with glutamine! They contain 4600mg of glutamine per 12oz shake.

Glucosamine w/ Chondroitin & MSM

- The Recommended Daily Amount

Many clients complain of joint problems, either in their knees or elbows, before starting their workout program; you can even hear their knees crack when they walk. Glucosamine w/ Chondroitin & MSM has proven (in study after study) to repair and build joint cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and even collagen. After supplementing with Glucosamine, most everyone forgets that they had an ailment, and…no more cracking sounds!

Creatine Monohydrate

- Once daily

It improves skeletal muscle cell volume, strength, and recovery. Remember, the more strength you have, the more weight you can lift. The more weight you can lift, the more lean muscle mass you can build. The more lean muscle mass that you build, the higher your metabolism. The higher your metabolism, the more fat you can burn, even at rest.

STARBODIES™ Whey to MUSCLE - Low-Carb Shakes

- 2 shakes per day to supplement your daily protein intake.

With just food alone, it is quite difficult to consume adequate amounts of needed protein, without going over your daily calorie requirements. STARBODIES™ Whey To MUSCLE will help you meet your needed protein requirements every 2-3 hours, to feed your muscles, and still stay within your calorie limits... even with your busy schedule.

Drink two STARBODIES™ shakes per day, one at breakfast and another for a mid-day protein snack. Mix 2 scoops with 12oz of water & ice in a blender. For breakfast, also add 1 TBSP of Flax Seed Oil to your shake, in the blender.

Starbodies® Whey to MUSCLE is a Premium Cross-Flow Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolate. It is not an inferior whey blend or concentrate like many other brands on the market.

FEEDS YOUR MUSCLE! MUSCLE = METABOLISM!

Flax Seed Oil (Essential Fatty Acids)

  - 1 Tbsp daily or Capsules (Keep refrigerated)

Your body cannot produce essential fatty acids. They must be supplied by the diet. And although many people don’t believe it, we do need fat. Many studies suggest that Flax Seed Oil stimulates body fat loss. When you eat a low-fat diet, your body actually thinks you are in a famine, and your body protects itself by not releasing fat. It’s a survival mechanism. However, studies suggest that when flax is taken, your body detects that good fat is coming in, so it makes it easier for your body to release the bad fat your body has been storing. Essential fatty acids are also beneficial to your skin and hair, plus they are currently being studied to help against cancer and many other bodily diseases.

I pour a Tbsp of Flax Seed Oil in my morning STARBODIES™ Whey to MUSCLE protein shake, each and every day.

STARBODIES™ Psyllium Husk Fiber Capsules

- Take one serving 2x per day
- Do not take with other vitamins or your vitamins will not be absorbed.

Psyllium from the seed husks of Plantago Ovata have the highest fiber content and the best quality.

Orange Star Aids In Blood Sugar Stabilization
Orange Star Decrease In Body Fat Storage
Orange Star Appetite & Weight Control
Orange Star Toxin Elimination & Heart Health

STARBODIES™ Psyllium Husk Fiber is not digested or metabolized by your body. The fiber binds with water and waste materials to pass through your intestines, to the colon, and then out of your body. Along the way, this helps to keep your digestive tract clean and eliminate toxic waste from remaining in your colon, which helps against colon cancer and many other diseases.

When STARBODIES™ Psyllium Fiber is combined with a simple carbohydrate food, the fiber helps to slow down the absorption rate of the sugar, giving your body more time to burn that sugar for energy, instead of storing the excess as body fat.

For example, simple carbohydrates have little or no fiber at all. When simple carbohydrates are consumed, your body breaks them down to sugar very easily. In turn, your body releases the hormone, insulin, to take up that sugar and store some as glycogen, and the excess as body fat. However, complex carbohydrates have fiber so they don’t break down so easily, which means insulin is not triggered to take up the excess sugar in your blood, and fat storage doesn’t take place.

Another important thing about STARBODIES™ Fiber is how it helps to regulate your insulin levels. When STARBODIES™ Fiber is added to your diet, this helps your blood sugar stay stable, longer, instead of you having the effects of high blood sugar (energy), then low blood sugar (you could just go to sleep). Your energy & mood swings will stay even throughout the day, so you can get more accomplished in your busy world, instead of feeling the sugar crash and tired feeling from the simple carbs.

STARBODIES™ Fiber also helps keep you feeling fuller longer, so not to overeat.

I take my STARBODIES™ Psyllium Fiber Capsules with water morning and night, just to keep all toxins moving out of my body on a regular basis. Also if I consume a treat that is considered more of a simple carbohydrate and lacks much fiber, I will take a little extra STARBODIES™ Fiber with it. This keeps blood sugars level and hopefully, no fat storage.

Thermogenics

- Thermo (meaning heat)
- Genics (meaning generating)

Thermogenics are anything that create heat in your body, which cause your metabolism to burn at a higher rate. There are various types of thermogenics. For instance:

- Supplements containing caffeine, synephrine, bitter orange, green tea, etc. cause your metabolism to speed up.

- Saunas & hot tubs raise your body temperature.
- Ice baths cause the body to create body heat to warm itself.

- Exercise
- During exercise
it causes a raised metabolism while tearing down muscles.
- After exercise
resting heart rate is higher for many hours after the workout, while your body tries to repair & rebuild itself.

- Eating small meals every 2-3 hours keeps your metabolism turned on all day long, while your body digests, absorbs, & processes the food.

- And many more

SPLENDA (Sucralose)

- As needed for coffee & tea

SPLENDA is a non-calorie sweetener made from sugar. It does not contain aspartame or saccharin.

SPLENDA is the non-calorie sweetener in the STARBODIES™ Whey to MUSCLE protein shakes.


Green Tea

- Tea Bags (iced or hot) or Green Tea Capsules

Green Tea is a
great antioxidant. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals. Free Radicals are formed from radiation from the sun, pollutants, and numerous things, even diet. They cause much damage to your body. Think of free radicals like a ping-pong ball bouncing sporadically in your body, doing damage, breaking down collagen everywhere it strikes. Over time this ping-pong ball is really doing some tearing down to your body. Antioxidants protect your body. Antioxidants would neutralize our pretend ping-pong ball so as not to do any more damage.

When I’m going outside for a day in the sun, I take an extra STARBODIES™ Metabolism Power Multi because it is full of antioxidants, and a pitcher of iced green tea.

CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)
- 1000mg Capsules 1 to 3 times per day

CLA is a fatty acid that has shown to interfere with an enzyme called lipoprotein lipase. This lipoprotein lipase enzyme helps your body store fat into fat cells. Also, CLA has shown to increase lean muscle tissue in bodybuilders, which again, raises metabolism and burns more calories.
Chlorophyll
- As needed, in tablet or liquid form (Keep Refrigerated)

Most people won’t tell you this, but often when dieting and restricting simple carbohydrates, ketosis (fat burning), causes bad breath, but chlorophyll freshens breath. Chlorophyll tablets can be swallowed or the liquid can be mixed with water. Also, Spirulina, Alfalfa, and Parsley are made of chlorophyll; so eat your parsley on your plate. It’s not just for decoration.
Spirulina, Alfalfa, and Parsley are also ingredients in the STARBODIES™ Metabolism Power Multi.
