Super Herb Moringa Leaf from Air Thai Life.Natural herbs have been used to repair wounds, heal disease and promote overall good health of the body for thousands of years. After all, people did not have the luxury to visit the doctor or pharmacist when something was not right; rather, they relied on nature to provide for them. Moving forward to modern day and millions of people around the world are struggling with not only illness, but also problems of being overweight or obese. Luckily, nature provides some efficient natural herbs for weight loss as well.

One of the most obvious benefits of any herb which aids in weight loss is the fact that it is natural; no chemicals or addictive additives. Apart from their ability to help you shed pounds, herbs are powerful, multi-tasking life forms. They work on many levels; heal what needs to be healed, eradicate any bad creatures which are calling your body “home”, boost your metabolism and increase your daily energy levels. Sounds pretty good, right?

There are thousands of beneficial herbs which heal and restore the body; however, if you’re looking for some that will help you to supercharge your weight loss, these are a must try:

Lotus Leaf

It’s not only a beautiful plant, but also has profound healing capabilities. Rich in chlorophyll, lotus leaf helps to absorb toxins and excrete waste from the body. It has been used in Thai and Chinese medicine to help slow the digestion of fat and carbohydrates, increase the metabolism and prevent the body from gaining excess weight.

Gotu Kola

Used in many weight loss supplements, gotu kola helps to eliminate toxins in the body which may be preventing you from losing weight. After these toxins are gone, the digestive system is able to work better which means more nutrients are delivered to your body, while at the same time, less fat becomes stored in unwanted areas.

Moringa Leaf

Although every part of the Moringa tree is edible, the leaves are the densest in nutrients. A Moringa supplement will provide you with easy to digest protein, your recommended daily requirement for calcium and many B vitamins which help to digest and convert foods to energy while supercharging your metabolism.

Mulberry Leaf

Super Weight Loss Plus from Air Thai Life. Contains Moringa, Lotus Leaf, Gota Kola and Mulberry. Sure mulberries are delicious and nutritious, but you also don’t want to miss out on the benefits of which the leaves have to offer. They’re high in fiber, protein and antioxidants; plus contain a compound called DNJ, or moranoline. Research shows that DNJ stimulates weight loss by preventing enzymes to digest carbs in the intestines. This means breads, rice, pasta and potatoes are flushed of the body rather than turning to glucose; meaning you absorb about 35% less calories and decrease sugar levels.

Increase Strength and Stabilize Your Weight with Plant Based Protein Powder

22 July, 2014

Increase Strength and Stabilize Your Weight with Plant Based Protein Powder

Why athletes are turning to brown rice protein powder

Protein powder is a popular supplement used by bodybuilders, athletes or anyone looking to stay in shape. It helps to build strength and muscle while maximizing the effects of a workout. Many traditional protein powders available on the current market are based from whey, casein, egg or soy. They can be difficult to digest, are often GMO and are not suitable for gluten free or vegan diets. Brown rice protein powder is an alternative to these traditional supplements, and contrary to what many people believe it is a very effective plant based protein powder.

Why Your Body Needs Protein

Protein is vital to a healthy, fully functioning body. Even if you are not trying to bulk up, you need to regularly consume protein because it helps to:

  • Create the structures of body tissues such as muscle, skin, nails and hair
  • Maintain healthy mood and brain function
  • Regulate weight
  • Boost and balance energy levels
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Help the body to recover after exercise, illness or injury

A Natural Process

Common protein powders go through a harsh chemical process before being packaged; whereas, the process of producing brown rice protein powder is completely natural, meaning there are no chemicals, fillers, additives or substances added. The process is simple and involves the utilization of enzymes, filtering and fermentation to naturally manipulate the protein and amino acid levels of the rice. During the process, protein and carbohydrates within the rice are separated which creates higher levels of protein. This low temperature process enhances the body’s ability to easily digest the protein and maximize all of its benefits.

A Complete Source of Amino Acids

Brown rice protein powder provides a complete source of quality amino acids which serve as the base foundation for protein synthesis, muscle regeneration, workout repair and the development of lean body tissue. The plant based protein powder supplies a person with all essential and non-essential amino acids including Isoleucine, Valine and Leuice; three essential components for athletes wishing to maintain their endurance levels during workouts.

Benefits of Brown Rice Protein

Air Thai Life Organic Plant Based Protein PowderApart from an abundance of amino acids, this plant based protein powder contains other substances which increase the overall health and wellbeing of those which consume the supplement.
