This simple drink restores a hot, fast metabolism in men over 40

You know how oil congeals into a hard-to-clean mess on leftover plates?

Well the same thing happens inside the body of aging men…

Most men by age 40 have slow, cold metabolisms from toxic oils building up over the years…

No wonder so many men can’t lose weight and feel exhausted and weighed down — it’s from the years of eating toxic oils!

But when you warm up the plate by putting it under hot water, the oil melts and comes right off…

…and the toxic oils in a man’s body melt the same way when he restores a hot, fast metabolism.

And to restore a hot, fast metabolism — a teenage metabolism, as I like to call it…

…all you have to do is drink this simple shake that flushes out the toxic oils…

It warms up and speeds up my metabolism, and then all that nasty oil is gone within a day.

Once you try it, you’ll be shocked at how much weight you lose and how much energy you have — and stamina enough for the lady (or ladies) in your life!

Are strawberries this harmful? What is the truth?

Insulin resistance is one of the main indicators of metabolic problems.

It often occurs alongside type 2 diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure.

Insulin resistance contributes to cardiovascular disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s, and macular degeneration.

Fruits and vegetables are associated with a lower risk of developing insulin resistance.

But some fruits in particular seem to be protective.

Research has shown that just a small amount of strawberries can improve insulin sensitivity in people with insulin resistance.

These scientists did this human trial at the Center for Nutrition Research, Institute for Food Safety and Health, Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL. Molecular Nutrition Food Research published the results.

A lot of research has come to light showing the beneficial effects of berry compounds on metabolic disease.

“Research suggested that the risk of type 2 diabetes is inversely associated with the intake of anthocyanin-rich berries.”

Cyanin comes from a Latin word meaning “dark blue.” Many food plants that are red, purple, blue, or black are rich in anthocyanin.

This research looked at the effect of strawberries on insulin resistance.

“This study evaluated the relationship of strawberries on postprandial glucose and insulin concentrations in individuals with insulin resistance.”

The researchers recruited 21 participants with a number of metabolic problems – and they all had a diagnosis of abdominal obesity.

They required that the participants have high blood sugar or high insulin levels when fasting.

They gave the participants a normal breakfast meal along with a drink containing different amounts of freeze-dried strawberries.

“Subjects received a standard breakfast meal accompanied with one of four beverages.”

The meal included a bagel with cream cheese and margarine, a hard-boiled egg, a cantaloupe, and some milk.

The participants reported for breakfast four times.

Each time they got a different drink with their breakfast.

One of the drinks contained no strawberries. The other three drinks contained increasing amounts of strawberries.

“The beverages were milk-based and contained 0, 10, 20, or 40 gm of freeze dried strawberries.”

Strawberries are mostly water. So an equivalent dose of fresh strawberries would weigh more than 10 times as much as the freeze-dried strawberries.

“10 gm of freeze-dried strawberry powder is equivalent to approximately 110 gm of fresh strawberries.”

During all four trials, the researchers took blood tests from all of the participants after the experimental breakfast.

“Blood was collected at 0 min and at 30 min intervals post-meal until 2 hr, then hourly until 6 hr.”

The highest dose of strawberries significantly reduced insulin levels.

“Post-meal insulin concentrations (6 hr) were significantly reduced after the 40-gm freeze-dried strawberry beverage compared to other beverages.”

Strawberries allowed the participants to control their blood sugar levels with less insulin through improving insulin sensitivity.

“Strawberry intake reduced the insulin demand to manage post-meal glucose in obese individuals with insulin resistance.”

The researchers also took tests to check the levels of strawberry compounds in the blood of the participants.

The berry compounds anthocyanin and pelargonidin are suspected to play a role in improving metabolic health.

And they found an association between blood levels of beneficial berry compounds and improvements in insulin sensitivity.

“The reduced insulin demand to manage post-meal blood sugar was related to blood levels of anthocyanin and pelargonidin.”

The higher the levels of these berry compounds in the blood, the better the insulin sensitivity of the participants.

The researchers concluded strawberries can improve insulin sensitivity in people with insulin resistance.

“The data supports the role of strawberries in improving insulin sensitivity in people with insulin resistance.”

The highest dose of strawberries was found to be the most effective. This was 40 gm of freeze-dried strawberry powder.

That’s equivalent to about 15 ounces of fresh strawberries.

Other researchers have found that other berries, such as blueberry and raspberry, have benefits for people with metabolic problems.

You should always consult a healthcare practitioner about diagnosing and treating health related problems.

Food Warning to Men: I found this additive in virtually all foods in the U.S. food supply

For the first time ever, I’m blowing the lid of this well kept secret…

…how virtually every food is intentionally and knowingly contaminated with a toxic chemical that radically increases cancer…heart disease…even “rockiness” problems…

You won’t find this ingredient listed on the label unless you know where to look and how to read the label…

…it’s the most dangerous additive and you should avoid ANY food that has it…

I made this video to show you how to find the additive on the label, and what foods to avoid…
