As a women's health practice, the Northwest Ohio Center for Urogynecology sees countless women with problems related to weight. Problems ranging from hormonal changes, gynecologic bleeding, infertility, pelvic organ prolapse, and urinary or fecal incontinence are all attributable to obesity. In fact, obesity is one of the main factors for failure of a reconstructive surgical procedure for prolapse or incontinence.
Many women experience frustration with repeated attempts at diet and exercise, or they do not have the budget for more expensive weight loss programs or bariatric surgery. These same women desire a safer and more affordable solution and just do not know where to start.
Although Northwest Ohio Center for Urogynecology and Women's Health has always recommended safe programs such as Weight Watchers or a local medically supervised weight loss program, it was particularly felt that the center needed to offer something conveniently better to patients in order to help their urogynecologic health and protect their surgical repairs for the long-term.
Thus, the center sought out a group of products that were convincingly efficacious in providing safe, gradual, realistic weight loss. The proof in the putting was Dr. Croak's personal witnessing 7 surgical nurses at Promedica St. Luke's Hospital (all weighing near or over 200 pounds apiece) lose over 870 combined pounds in a 3 month period. Some of them even got off their cholesterol and diabetic medications.
The Northwest Ohio Center for Urogynecology and Women's Health now has the ability to offer this alternative that is extremely beneficial not only regarding weight loss, but is also successful in lowering cholesterol and glucose.
The Bios Life products from Unicity along with a related family of supplements was created to help women in seeking healthier lives. Although the company has been around for years, they are relatively new to the Toledo area. These products are lab standardized and listed in the Physicians Desk Reference. They are also used in many departments of cardiology and bariatrics from major medical institutions within this country including Stanford and Cleveland Clinic. They are endorsed by many top physicians as well.
Bios Life Slim®
Bios Life Slim® is the revolutionary clinically proven dietary supplement to help you achieve your health goals and is clinically proven to help restore and maintain healthy blood cholesterol and glucose levels. It delivers a patented, scientifically formulated matrix of fibers, vitamins, minerals, phytosterols, policosanol and Chrysanthemum Morifolium. Derived from natural ingredients, the proprietary blend in Bios Life Slim is a safe and simple way to encourage weight loss, increase energy, and better control blood chemistry.
Part of the complete approach to health from inside out, taking Bios Life Slim twice per day helps to control the rate your body absorbs the food you eat. Instead of experiencing an energy rush after eating, the proprietary blend spreads that energy across several hours through better insulin and glucose metabolism - eliminating the need to snack between meals.
A diet is something you do to your body. Bios Life Slim is something you do with your body. It doesn't just assist with weight loss; it helps reduce your appetite and decrease leptin resistance, in addition to helping to maintain healthy triglyceride and cholesterol levels. It is important to note that Bios Life Slim doesn't obviate the need for a healthy diet and exercise program to achieve optimal results. A healthy motivated mindset also is key to maximal success!
How It Works
At the heart of Bios Life Slim is its proprietary fiber blend. By increasing daily fiber intake 10-15 minutes prior to a meal, one helps offset what is entering the body through increased satiety. The fiber matrix forms a soft gel in the stomach, creating a feeling of "fullness".
When food is consumed, the body increases its insulin and glucose levels; its goal is to take advantage of the energy provided in a meal. The problem is, sometimes more energy is provided than the body needs at that moment, and that energy is converted to stored fat.
Bios Life Slim helps in two ways. One, it slows the rate of absorption; this is especially significant for high-carbohydrate meals. Carbs are a great source of energy, as long as they're used relatively quickly. But if they're not used, these carbs will be converted into fat. By slowing the absorption rate, Bios Life Slim helps the body utilize those carbs over a longer period of time - eliminating the need to store them as fat.
The other way Bios Life Slim helps is by creating fat-burning zones between meals. Utilizing the 4-4-12 principle (where you wait at least 4 hours between breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and 12 hours between dinner and breakfast the next day) it allows the body's glucose and insulin levels to return to normal. Between meal snacks are not necessary because the fiber in Bios Life Slim will be providing on going energy in the form of carbs already eaten, and if more energy is needed, the body will have a reason to burn the fat reserves it already has.
Bios Life decreases leptin resistance by allowing proper communication between your fat cells and brain. When working properly, the brain will not crave food when it senses adequate leptin in the body.
Bios Life Slim also lowers triglycerides by an average of 40% in just 60 days. By reducing triglycerides, risk for heart attack and stroke is lowered. Leptin resistance is also lowered by lowering triglycerides.
Bios Life Slim also improves good cholesterol levels (HDL) by 29% and lowers bad cholesterol (LDL) by 31%. Bad cholesterol has been implicated as a risk factor for heart attack and stroke. Its method of action on cholesterol is fourfold. It blocks reabsorption in the intestine by binding bile acids and trapping cholesterol. The phytosterols compete for absorption of cholesterol, thus more cholesterol is excreted as waste. Policosanol acts to naturally block HMG-CoA Reductase in liver, thus reducing cholesterol production in the liver. Chrysanthemum Morifolium enzymatically breaks down cholesterol.
In the end, Bios Life Slim not only helps curb hunger, but helps the body burn the fat it already has - all without the confusion, hunger, and mediocre results of other weight loss products and programs.
