New no-exercise method lets men build 35% more muscle

At last: Just close your eyes and imagine you are doing this physical activity — and you’ll literally build 35% more muscle

Most “experts” will tell you that in order to build muscle, you need to lift weights…

Yet they couldn’t be more wrong!

In fact you don’t need to lift at all, thanks to a new discovery of internal muscle signaling

At last, you can build a ripped physique without lifting anything. Don’t believe it? It’s true…

Because this method “switches on” the best 3 muscle building processes in the body. 

And when you connect your mind and muscle together, you’ll decrease the chance of injury, so you can get a physique that looks great without killing yourself in the gym.

Here’s how to use internal muscle signaling to get huge gains without even lifting weights.


Why I never, ever wear sunscreen

Even though we live in a world with many agencies that are SUPPOSED to protect us, it’s still very much a “buyer beware” kind of situation for many, many products on the market.

That is partly because these agencies – such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – are pretty good at spotting short-term and immediate problems with consumer goods… 

But they are TERRIBLE at looking at long-term risks or more subtle problems with products.

This is the case with many treatments on the market – such as antidepressants – that can cause long-term dependency, sexual function issues, and other problems. 

The FDA doesn’t seem to care much or do much about those problems.

But it’s equally a problem with products that seem more innocent – such as sunscreen.

Just so you know, sunscreen is regulated like a medical treatment in the U.S., not as a cosmetic. 

And still, almost nobody knows that the chemicals in sunscreen absorb through the skin and enter the bloodstream.

Chemicals in sunscreen are absorbed through the skin.

Most sunscreen works by using chemicals that keep you from getting a sunburn. 

(There are also sunscreens that create a physical barrier against the sun – zinc-based –  but this article isn’t about those.)

The chemical sunscreens are applied to the skin…

And skin does a great job of moving those chemicals RIGHT INTO your bloodstream.

“The primary outcome was the maximum plasma concentration of avobenzone over days 1 through 21. Secondary outcomes were the maximum plasma concentrations of oxybenzone, octocrylene, homosalate, octisalate, and octinoxate over days 1 through 21.”

Your skin really is not a good barrier to chemical absorption. 

In fact, you can be poisoned through your skin without ever ingesting any poison via pill, drink, or food.

Blood absorption happens quickly.

This isn’t a slow-acting absorption either… 

Blood concentrations of sunscreen chemicals can exceed recommended limits in as little as one day of application.

“Geometric mean maximum plasma concentrations of all 6 active ingredients were greater than 0.5 ng/mL… And this threshold was surpassed on day 1 after a single application for all active ingredients.”

So then what happens if you apply sunscreen regularly day after day? 

How many chemicals will you absorb through your skin and into your blood? 

No one really knows. And that is a HUGE problem.

This is the second study showing that these chemicals are absorbed through the skin.

Yes. The alarming thing is that this isn’t the first study to show that we absorb these chemicals through our skin.

A prior pilot study demonstrated the systemic absorption of 4 sunscreen active ingredients additional studies are needed to determine the systemic absorption of additional active ingredients and how quickly systemic exposure exceeds 0.5 ng/mL as recommended by the US FDA.”

We’ve known about this for a while now, but there are very few alarms being raised. 

There is no disclaimer on packaging and there are still shelves and shelves of these products at the store.

We have no idea WHAT these chemicals do.

The reality of the situation is that we have no idea what these chemicals actually do to us and what their effect may be long term.

I’m not saying to skip sunscreen. 

But you may want to consider alternate methods for protecting your skin, such as hats and protective clothing.

I personally don’t like slathering my skin with chemicals when I don’t know what the effects on my body might be.

When it comes to sunscreen, it’s good to remember the old adage “buyer beware.”

NEW Super C gets the body producing more collagen for smoother, healthier, younger-looking skin (and fewer wrinkles)

Collagen is the brick and mortar that our bodies are built with.

It holds our cells together, and it provides the structure for fibrous tissue like ligaments and tendons.

And when you increase collagen production, you end up with healthier, more youthful looking skin that refuses to wrinkle, even with age…

So how do you get more collagen? Well vitamin C helps…

But the problem with regular vitamin C is that it doesn’t stay in the body long enough to produce these health benefits… 

That’s why I developed my very own Super C — it stays in the bloodstream for hours instead of minutes.

Here’s how to use Super C to naturally produce more collagen and smoother, healthier, younger looking skin.
