Belly Great™ is a Prebiotics & Probiotics designed to support your mood and energy, while improving your digestion and immune health.
And supporting weight loss.
Here’s why it’s the PERFECT complement to your order…
First, Belly Great contains Vitamin D3.
There’s recently been a ton of buzz about vitamin D3 and how it can help with everything from your mood to supporting weight loss!
Vitamin D3 is created by your body when the Sun’s UV rays hit it.
But here’s the fine print you might now know…
Your body can only produce vitamin D3, 6 months out of the year!!!
A biological scam.
And Vitamin D3 is a workhorse for your body supporting everything from calcium absorption in your bones to your ability to fend off pesky viruses and bacteria.
But here’s a WEIRD new discovery about Vitamin D3…
It *MIGHT* support weight loss!
Let’s hear from one of the most well known and respected researchers on the subject Dr Anne Mctiernan.
Individuals with increased body fat have lower blood levels of vitamin D3 compared with lighter-weight persons,” says Anne McTiernan, MD, PhD, professor at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and author of Starved: A Nutrition Doctor’s Journey from Empty to Full, who has done research on vitamin D and weight loss.
An article published in September 2019 in Medicina theorizes that excess fat, liver, and muscle mass may negatively affect vitamin D3 absorption.
Another theory is that unhealthy people receive less exposure to the sun as well, which while it needs clinical confirmation sure makes sense to the old eye test.
I mean think about it…
Have you ever seen a REALLY tan unhealthy person?
What about when you close your eyes….
If you imagine a person with golden sun-kissed skin are they overweight?
Chances are they aren’t…
Nope when you think about people who are tan you think active and healthy…
They go hand in hand.
But did you know that it goes even deeper than that?
Low levels of vitamin D3 have EVEN been linked to mood disorders!
A review published in 2017 in the journal Neuropsychiatry found a significant connection between vitamin D3 deficiency and sadness and stress.
Your mood is another factor in weight gain as a higher Body Mass Index is strongly associated with more days of sadness per year.
“It’s possible vitamin D3 helps maintain adequate energy and mood,” says Dr. Agarwal.
And that’s just one of the core ingredients in the Belly Great supplement.
Let’s talk about the other main ingredient Methylfolate.
For years millions and millions of people have heard that their weight gain had to do with their genes…
But what does that actually mean?
New research has shown that a common gene mutation called MTHFR might be the culprit…
What is MTHFR?
It is a mutation that causes you to have less fat burning reactions in your body which means that unused fat stays in your body!!!
Specifically it makes it hard to process vitamin B9 from food into its active form.
But the good news is promising research suggests that supplementation with Methylfolate can be used to bypass the gene and increase the amount of folate in the body!
Which leads to more of those fat burning reactions!
A 2016 study found that rats fed a high fat diet and given excess folic acid had an unhealthy inflammation response, lipid storage and weight gain as compared to rats fed only adequate folic acid that were fed the same high fat diet.
Which is why we included Methylfolate in the Belly Great product!
