Best Natural Appetite Suppressants

Schedule Appointment 

Here at the Aspen Clinic, we know how discouraging it can be when you are trying to lose weight while having lingering hunger trying to tempt you into falling off track. While it is very important to listen to your body and feed it when it is hungry, it can also be misleading during a transitional time in your weight loss journey. The Aspen Clinic offers an Appetite Suppressant supplement that can help curb your cravings!

AppetiteRX from The Aspen Clinic

How does the Aspen Clinic’s appetite suppressant, AppetiteRX, work? Caralluma Fimbriata is a cactus-like plant with long-standing use as food in India. The cactus was often eaten by local tribes-people to ward off hunger while hunting in the forests. Its appetite suppressing qualities make it an ideal addition to modern diets. This formula contains the key constituents of the whole plant associated with appetite suppression and healthy weight management without chemically altering those constituents.

Caralluma Fimbriata has properties useful in weight management, the most significant being hunger control. This appetite suppression leaves this cactus extract uniquely positioned to support the body’s weight management needs.

Appetite suppression: When adults exercise and burn more calories, they often need to guard against the hunger-induced consumption of extra calories. Caralluma Fimbriata helps suppress appetite, providing adults with the ability to maintain a consistent caloric intake.

A 12-week randomized, placebo-controlled study in Australia was conducted on 43 obese and overweight subjects. The study measured the effect of Caralluma Fimbriata on waist circumference and waist-to-hip ratio, among other factors. The study showed statistically significant results for waist circumference (positively correlated with a reduction in abdominal fat), waist-to-hip ratio decline, and significant decline in palatability of test meal and reduced sodium intake when combined with healthy diet and exercise.

A pilot study investigating the effect of Caralluma Fimbriata extract on the risk factors of metabolic syndrome in overweight and obese subjects: a randomized controlled clinical trial.

Aspen Clinic’s AppetiteRx is a natural appetite suppressant sourced from Caralluma Fimbriata, a cactus-like plant that promotes appetite suppression, increases feelings of satiety, and aids in craving control.

How Do You Speed Up Weight Loss?

Schedule Appointment 

One of the main components to the pace that one loses weight is their metabolism. Researchers at Harvard explain Metabolism like this: One way to think about metabolism is to view your body as a car engine that is always running. When you’re sitting still or sleeping, your engine is idling like a car at a stop light. A certain amount of energy is being burned just to keep the engine running. Of course, for humans, the fuel source is not gasoline. It’s the calories found in foods we eat and beverages we drink — energy that may be used right away or stored (especially in the form of fat) for use later.

How fast your body’s “engine” runs on average, over time, determines how many calories you burn. If your metabolism is “high” (or fast), you will burn more calories at rest and during activity. A high metabolism means you’ll need to take in more calories to maintain your weight. That’s one reason why some people can eat more than others without gaining weight. A person with a “low” (or slow) metabolism will burn fewer calories at rest and during activity and therefore has to eat less to avoid becoming overweight.

MetaBoost by The Aspen Clinic

If you happen to be struggling with the pace of your weight loss, it could be because you have a slower metabolism, but don’t worry! The Aspen Clinic offers MetaBoost, a metabolism-boosting supplement that contains adaptogens. 

What are adaptogens? Adaptogens are a select group of herbs that support the body’s natural ability to deal with stress. They are called adaptogens because of their unique ability to “adapt” their function according to the specific needs of the body. 

Adaptogens do for your adrenal glands what exercise does for the muscles by interacting with the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and the sympathoadrenal system, tweaking hormone production and physiological responses to ensure the body functions optimally.

When the body is subjected to stress, adaptogens help the adrenal glands mount an immediate hormonal response by manufacturing and releasing more stress hormones. 

Gynostemma pentaphylum (ginseng) is one of the most well-known adaptogenic herbs. It can increase energy, improve cognitive function, act as an anti-inflammatory, aid in erectile dysfunction, prevent flu and lower blood sugar.

This herb contains a family of compounds that upregulate alarmins including sestrins, which are produced during exercise. Sestrins activate an enzyme called adenosine monophosphate protein kinase (AMPk).

AMPk is the master metabolic regulator that instructs the body to start burning fuel for energy instead of storing it and replicates the metabolic and health benefits of exercise. AMPk also regulates metabolic activity in the liver, lipids, muscle, and brain which influences glucose utilization for energy, oxidation, and appetite.

Aspen MetaBoost contains ActivAMP extracted from Ginseng leaf. Panax ginseng alone also acts as an adaptogen increasing the body’s resistance to stress, increases stamina and endurance, and acts as a detoxifying and anti-aging agent. AMPk regulates energy balance at both the cellular and whole-body levels by direct phosphorylation of metabolic enzymes and transcription factors, AMPK switches on catabolic pathways, such as the uptake of glucose and fatty acids, and their metabolism by mitochondrial oxidation and glycolysis. ActivAmp is the metabolic master switch that turns on the same fat-burning and energy-producing metabolic processes that exercise does.

What Are The Health Benefits of Collagen Protein?

Schedule Appointment 

Looking for a clean source of protein to fuel up your day? Look no further than Collagen Protein! Our Collagen Protein powder is available for purchase at our online store, but what exactly is Collagen Protein, and how does it work? 

Collagen Protein Explained

Our Collagen Protein powder is the ultimate blend of collagen peptides and medium chain triglyceride oil (MCT) to maintain your health, energy and youthful looks. Collagen has shown it to be the compound that gives skin its elasticity and fullness. As we grow older, our natural collagen levels begin to wane and lines and wrinkles form. By supplementing your body’s collagen, it encourages more production and begins to fill in the skin once more. It also helps to smooth out cellulite and restore dry or fragile hair and nails.

Collagen Peptides (Bovine) repairs cellular damage, maintains physical structure, aids in joint movement, reverses signs of aging, heals and protects the gut.

Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in your body, accounting for about a third of its protein composition. Collagen production naturally declines with age. Collagen may be sourced from animals and fish and made into edible powders. Maintaining collagen levels will also support your joints, ligaments, tendons and all other connective tissues along with holding and supporting various organs. To retain your range of motion as you age, combat arthritis and osteoporosis and support your entire skeletal system, collagen is essential.

Medium Chain Triglyceride Powder Improves cognitive function, boosts energy and endurance, lowers cholesterol and blood sugar, aids in weight loss and maintenance.

MCT oil is a type of fat that is used by the body to increase energy and endurance when working out, speed up weight loss and improve cognitive function and memory. MCTs leave the gut and go straight to the liver where they are used instantly for energy functions or converted into ketones which are then used by the brain. Studies have shown that MCT oil can increase endurance in high intensity workouts, stimulates fat burning and increases the hormones which reduce the appetite.

MCT oil also protects your health by raising HDL cholesterol levels and lowering LDL and triglycerides. This may help reduce the risk of heart disease, atherosclerosis and stroke. It has also been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels and balance insulin resistance.

How Can Adrenal Supplements Help With Weight Loss?

Schedule Appointment 

Thinking about taking an adrenal supplement to help you along your weight loss journey? That’s a great idea! Aspen Adrenal is an exclusive blend of nutrients and herbs formulated to support adrenal function, especially in times of emotional or physical stress. Our adrenal glands produce a variety of hormones when stimulated, one of which is called Cortisol which can eat muscle This product is key for weight loss! Keep reading to learn more, and visit our store to get some for yourself!

Adrenal Supplement vs Weight Loss

When the body is stressed physically or emotionally there is a high demand placed on the adrenal glands to produce the adrenaline hormone called “epinephrine”. When stressed, the adrenal glands become overused and are unable to synthesize the correct amount of adrenal hormones – resulting in: Dehydration, Kidney problems, Aging. The adrenal glands produce over 30 hormones to balance your body including cortisol and aldosterone – cortisol is the body’s worst nightmare. When the adrenal glands produce high levels of cortisol, the cortisol will begin to deteriorate muscle. Muscle is what burns fat, so if you’re eating muscle, then all you’re going to do is store fat. This means that your body now goes into a catabolic state, or eating itself.

In addition to stress, dietary habits including the overuse of caffeine, sugar, white flour, and processed sugars can place additional demands on the adrenal glands

What this will do is support the adrenals gland to take the added stress off of them, to stop the excretion of cortisol, so that the body can start building muscle instead of breaking it down.

How Supplements & Injections Aid in Weight Loss

Schedule Appointment 

The Aspen Clinic has helped many people lose weight by focusing on long-term positive lifestyle changes. Because there are many nutritional and health factors that accompany lifestyle changes and healthy weight loss for women and men, we find it best to have a qualified physician review our client’s personal information and analyze their nutritional needs. But how exactly do supplements and injections  work?

Benefits of Weight Loss Supplements & Injections 

According to Mayo Clinic, Most prescription weight-loss drugs work by decreasing appetite or increasing feelings of fullness which helps when adjusting to a new eating routine. 

When it comes to injections, proponents of vitamin based injections are known to give you more energy and boost your metabolism by replenishing vitamins your body may have been deficient in, helping you shed unwanted pounds. B-12 can also improve energy levels, better mood, deeper sleep, boost metabolism. 

Lipotropic injections speed up the removal of fat within the liver, decongests liver of fat and bile, reduces LDL and increases HDL cholesterol, breaks down fats and carbohydrates & a diuretic, promotes relaxation and decreases anxiety, promote regular insulin function, muscle building, training, and endurance.

Like vitamin injections, supplements can aid in weight loss by providing the body with nutrients it may be missing.  The different herbs and plants in the all natural Aspen Clinic supplement line have a multitude of functions including accelerating fat loss, boosting energy, mood, and metabolism, improving digestion and overall vitality. It is very important to choose all natural supplements, with ingredients the body can recognize, instead of the common ones at drug stores composed of synthetic chemicals.  

An important thing to remember is that there is no magic cure for weight loss. The medication and injections are to aid in the weight loss process, NOT to do all the work for you. The purpose of the medication is to suppress appetite, which aids in weight loss while you adjust to a new lifestyle of eating. If you take the medication and don’t adjust your lifestyle and eating habits, then you will not see the results on the scale. The most important thing for weight loss will always be to focus on cleaning up your unhealthy lifestyle habits.

Lucky For You That’s What We LIPO!

HAPPY SUMMER!

It’s officially the first day of summer, which means it’s officially swimsuit, beach, and pool party season. It feels like this year has flown by and we can’t believe it’s already half way over! You may have slacked off on some of your New Year’s Resolutions by now, and you know what they always say, “summer bodies are made in the winter.” So if you haven’t reached your summer weight loss goals, don’t worry! We have a supplement that is perfect for you!

LIPO-Plus is our number 1 best selling supplement. This supplement is a major FAT BURNER, specifically targeting fatty tissue in the abdomen while boosting metabolism and energy. The Lipo-Plus is also a natural appetite suppressant that many of our patients use along with the medication to further suppress their appetite towards the end of the day. Many non-medical patients take 2 capsules per day as a sub for the medication.

It has 4 powerful ingredients beneficial weight loss:

  1. Lipase Enzymes

    • A digestive enzyme that breaks down fats found in oils, butters, cheese, and meats.  Cooked fats have no enzymes so when they enter the bloodstream they cannot be digested.  If not processed in a few hours after consumption, the fats will be stored.  
  2. Green Coffee Bean Extract

    • Slows the absorption of dietary fat and increases metabolism of extra body fat
  3. Fucoxanthin

    • Targets a protein called UCP1, which increases the rate of abdominal fat.
  4. Caraliuma Fimbriata

    • A natural appetite suppressant found in a cactus.  Traditionally, Indian tribes chewed chunks of caralluma to keep from being hungry during a long hunt. These days, a solution that contains chemicals taken from the plant (extract) is used to decrease appetite for weight loss.

Start your summer off right by adding LIPO-Plus to your daily supplement regimen.  We recommend taking the LIPO-Plus at least once per day, but to speed up results take one capsule with each meal.

Natural vs Synthetic Supplements & Why It Matters

Do you know the real reason you eat?

It’s not because you’re hungry or because you’re having a craving for a burger or chocolate. We eat for two main reasons: nutrients and energy. However, many of the foods we eat don’t provide us with either. We have become so inclined to buy the cheapest foods that last the longest. The problem lies in the fact that foods that are cooked or processed normally contain little to no nutrient value. This is the reason that the supplement aisle at your local pharmacy and grocery store exists.

The bad news?

Not all supplements are created equal. Approximately 90% of the supplements sold on the shelves of health food stores are literally ground up rocks and minerals. Just like it’s important to consider ingredient lists on foods, you should do the same when buying vitamins.  The accepted view is that synthetic nutrients are almost chemically identical to those found in food. The problem is that it is still unclear how your body actually absorbs these nutrients.

When you eat whole foods you aren’t consuming only a single nutrient, you’re consuming the nutrient plus a range of vitamins, minerals, co-factors, and enzymes that allow for optimal use within the body. What you don’t realize is that while scientists are trying to “re-create” vitamins in a lab, Mother Nature has already figured out the perfect balance of nutrients in foods.

Nutrients need each other to be properly absorbed, so isolating one vitamin isn’t going to get you very far. For example, there are over 200 nutrients in a carrot. The food is perfectly balanced so that we receive the full benefit of the vitamins found within. When you think of an orange you probably think of Vitamin C.   However, all of the “little guys” found in an orange are just as necessary in order to absorb and utilize the Vitamin C. Also, in nature, the nutrients are never found in mega-doses like “10,000mg of Vitamin C.”

Vitamin C is a perfect example of a supplement that is almost always in the synthetic form of ascorbic acid. Ascorbic acid is a man-made chemical that is not found anywhere in nature. It is created by applying high heat, pressure, and chemicals to sugar extracted from cornstarch, which turns the sugar into ascorbic acid. Before you assume a vitamin is natural ask yourself, “Is there an ascorbic acid plant, animal, or pond where I could find Vitamin C?” If the answer is no, the supplement is synthetic.

“The same minerals that cause scum to build up in your shower is what you may be consuming in your supplements today.” – Dr. Josh Axe

Another example is calcium. There are many different forms of calcium including calcium carbonate, calcium citrate, calcium chelate, etc. These are all synthetic forms of calcium that could damage your long-term health. Most calcium supplements do very little to protect bones and can actually increase risk for heart disease. The reason is that the calcium in most calcium supplements comes from calcium carbonate (finely ground limestone rock) and your body is only able to absorb a small percentage of that. The rest is either excreted or can bind to plaque on your arteries causing “calcification” of the arteries, which can eventually lead to stroke or heart attack.

So how do vitamin companies get away with claiming these vitamins are “natural” or “pharmaceutical grade?”

Many “natural” supplements are composed of mostly man-made ingredients and then the manufacturer adds one organic ingredient like soy or alfalfa, which allows them to use the word “natural” or “whole food based.”

Many companies boast that their supplements are pharmaceutical grade, which literally means that they are highly processed and not natural. The definition of the word pharmaceutical is “a compound manufactured for use as a medicinal drug.”

One of the main problems is that we are hard-wired to believe that more is better. That’s not always the case when it comes to your nutrition. For example, many people take thiamine (Vitamin B1) for energy. But too much of it can actually lead to fatigue. Causing you to take even more of the vitamin. This is how the vicious cycle starts. Take supplements to treat the effects of supplements.

Unfortunately, we have to keep in mind that the supplement industry is just like any other industry. The main goal is to make as much money as possible, while spending the least money possible. These companies spend very little on the product itself and millions on marketing them.

We hate to break this to you, but if you are taking synthetic supplements, you basically just have expensive urine.

This means that your body physically cannot absorb those ingredients so you are just flushing them out. This is why it is EXTREMELY important for you to learn the different between a truly all natural supplement and a synthetic supplement.

How to determine if your supplements are food-based or synthetic:

  1. Read the ingredients

    • Typically ingredients that end in “ic,” “ate,” or “acid” are synthetic
    • Examples: ascorbic acid, potassium gluconate, calcium citrate
  2.   Quality over quantity:

    • More isn’t always better.  Keep in mind, Mother Nature has already figured out the perfect balance of nutrients in foods.
    • Small amounts of Vitamin C from oranges or cherry extract is better than large amounts of Vitamin C as ascorbic acid.
  3. Consider Price

    • As with anything, you typically get what you pay for; it’s pretty inexpensive to pulverize rock and put it into pill form.
    • All natural vitamins, from whole food sources will generally be pricier, but you will be able to utilize and absorb the nutrients found in the vitamin.

So it’s time to start prioritizing your health. Don’t always buy the cheapest options available when it comes to your nutrition. Before you put anything into your body you should ask yourself, “will this give me nutrients or energy?” If the answer is no, DO NOT put it into your body. It’s that simple.

At the end of the day, if you don’t take care of your body, where are you going to live?

Why You Should Choose Natural Supplements

As a part of the health world for over 30 years, we’ve discovered one thing about supplements or vitamins and that is this:

 When it comes to supplements, natural is always better.

Here is why:

Mystery Ingredients

The problem with many synthetic vitamins is that you don’t truly know what you are putting in your body, do you? Contrary to those artificially created types, natural vitamins have ONLY natural ingredients.

Absorption

Sometimes it’s not what vitamins you take, or foods you eat – rather, what you ABSORB from those foods or vitamins.

One major point that is a good reason for sticking with all natural vitamins is the absorption factor. Your body absorbs the natural vitamins more readily because it recognizes them as nutrients, whereas unnatural sources cannot be absorbed by the body. The body is hard to trick, sometimes the synthetics that are designed to fool the body are not taken in.

Some people are also adopting the practice of taking a synthetic vitamin during a meal to give better chances for being absorbed correctly. Wouldn’t it be much better if you just got your daily vitamin requirement from natural sources?

100% (not) Natural 

There are a lot of products on the market now that say that they are 100% natural. However, its important that you always check out the supplemental facts when buying any type of vitamin or supplement.

Remember, there is no such thing as an “ascorbic acid” plant.

Ascorbic acid is the main source of Vitamin C in vitamins and supplements we find in drug stores these days, but wouldn’t you rather get your Vitamin C sourced from an orange? Ascorbic acid is a combination of corn syrup and hydrochloric acid; therefore, taking a vitamin C supplement composed of ascorbic acid is like dumping sugar into the bloodstream. In a lab study of carotid artery ultrasound before and after intake of Vitamin C based on ascorbic acid revealed that artery walls were 2.5x thicker and 5x thicker in smokers.

So when you look at those supplemental facts, you should only see things you recognize!

Ingredients Matter

You will be able to find some food packages that also act as natural supplements. Any supplements that are as close to nature as possible will be easier to absorb.

Many of these natural foods are very good for you and give you the nutritional requirements that your body needs such as enzymes and anti-oxidants. All of these components work together to give your body the nutrients that it needs. The only way to know for sure exactly what you will need for your body is to consult a nutritionist and have them create a regimen for you.

The best way to get started on a routine to keep your body healthy is a well balanced natural diet that focuses on foods that are as close to their natural state as possible. The natural vitamin supplements  can provide your body with all the nutrients your body needs to be healthy and perform optimally. If you have some certain vitamin deficiencies you may have to take even more intense supplements.

The best course of action is to consult a nutritionist who can take a close look at your current nutritional habits and help you to create the right nutritional program just for you. Just remember that natural vitamin supplements will always be better than the synthetic version.
