7 Keto

With this special you receive 4 WEEKS of everything listed above for only $295 (that’s a savings of over $200) – and we’ll throw in the 7-Keto Lean for FREE!

Integrative Therapeutics 7-Keto Lean is an all-natural weight loss supplement that helps boost weight loss mainly by acting on your thyroid gland. Your thyroid gland is responsible for so many functions in your body – your metabolism being one of the major ones.

7-Keto Lean activates certain enzymes called thermogenic enzymes. These enzymes help burn fat, increase metabolism, boost energy levels, and support your thyroid health – all which promotes weight loss.

The main ingredient in 7-Keto Lean is 7-Keto (hence the name) a form of DHEA, or Dehydroepiandrosterone. DHEA is a hormone that’s found naturally in the body. It’s made by your adrenal glands – the glands that sit right by each kidney – and your brain. As you age, your natural production of DHEA goes down, which can throw off your hormonal balance. Taking DHEA in supplemental form helps restore this balance and can boost weight loss.

In addition to DHEA, 7-Keto Lean also contains

  • Iodine
  • Copper
  • Manganese
  • Parsley Leaf Powder
  • L-Tyrosine
  • Choline Bitartrate
  • Inositol

It DOES NOT Contain any:

  • Artificial coloring
  • Artificial flavoring
  • Dairy
  • Gluten
  • Preservatives
  • Salt
  • Soy
  • Sugar
  • Wheat
  • Yeast

Unlike many other metabolism-boosting supplements on the market, 7-Keto Lean doesn’t raise your heart rate or blood pressure and it will NOT keep you awake at night!

Product of the Month

You might have noticed that there’s a “product of the month” listed, but you’re probably thinking “what is it??”. Well we’re glad you asked. We like to keep things fresh and interesting over here at Valley Medical by changing the product of the month every month. This month we’re offering the Skip-a-Meal Replacement Shake by Progressive Laboratories.

The Skip-a-Meal Replacement Shake is a whey protein meal replacement shake that serves as a high-protein, low calorie replacement for a higher calorie meal. You can replace one meal with a shake each day, or all three meals. It’s totally up to you.

In addition to being low in calories (only 192 per serving!), the shake is also loaded with several vitamins and minerals so it serves as a balanced nutrition source, just like a healthy meal would. One serving of the Skip-a-Meal replacement shakes provides at least 30% (in some cases, it provides 35%) of each of these vitamins and minerals: vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, iron, vitamin D, vitamin E, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6, folate, vitamin B-12, biotin, pantothenic acid, phosphorus, iodine, magnesium, zinc, and copper. So if you’re drinking the meal replacement three times a day, you don’t have to worry about getting the nutrients you need.

A single serving of the shake also provides 24 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber but only 2 grams of sugar and 5 grams of fat. The even better news? One tub contains 15 servings and you get it FREE when you sign up for our monthly special. Choose from vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry.

Lipotropic Injections: Why Loving Fat is a Good Thing

If you follow us on Facebook, you may have seen that we’re running a special this monthlipotropic injections on all 10-packs of lipotropic injections (at both locations!). Right now, when you purchase a 10-pack of injections you can get them at 20% off! But if you’re not familiar with lipotopic injections, that offer may not be as appealing as it should be. So what are lipotropic injections and what can they do for you? Well, we’re glad you asked. We currently offer 3 different types of lipotropic injections. Here’s a quick breakdown of each of them.

What Does Lipotropic Mean?

Before we get into the types of injections we offer, let’s discuss the term “lipotropic”. Lipotropic literally means “fat-loving” which doesn’t sound like something you want when it comes to weight loss, but don’t let the translation fool you – you do want it. Lipotropics are substances that have the ability to liquefy fats. They help decrease fat deposits and speed up the removal of fats from the liver, which ultimately translates to weight loss. Lipotropics are most effective when combined with a calorie-controlled diet.

Lipo-B

Lipo-B is a lipotropic injection that contains 3 types of lipotropics – choline, inositol, and methionine – as well as a combination of the B vitamins 5, 6, and 12. Choline is important for brain and nerve function, liver metabolism, and the transport of nutrients throughout the body. Many people are deficient in choline, which tends to cause weight gain. Inositol is a little known member of the vitamin B-complex family. Inositol helps prevent the buildup and accumulation of fat and helps break down fatty acids. It has also been shown to increase mood. Methionine supports healthy growth and metabolism and has been shown to prevent excess fat in the liver and body and decrease inflammation. The B vitamins support the metabolism of carbohydrates and fatty acids and help increase your energy levels.

Lipo Excel

Lipo Excel injections are similar to Lipo-B injections, but they work even faster. In addition to the ingredients found in Lipo-B, Lipo Excel injections contain Adenosine. Adenosine, which also occurs naturally in the body, helps promote weight loss while also increasing energy, improving mood, and boosting metabolism.

Lipo Blast

Lipo Blast contains all of the ingredients in Lipo-B with the benefit of added B vitamins. In addition to vitamins B-5, B-6, and B-12, Lipo Blast contains vitamins B-1, B-2, B-3, and B-7. These B vitamins provide more metabolic support, increase energy, and help you break down fat even more effectively.

Advantages of Injections over Pills

Although all of these components are available in oral supplement form, there are some MAJOR advantages to getting injections. One of the biggest advantages is increased absorption. When you take a pill orally, it has to travel through your digestive system and into your stomach and small intestines, where it is broken down and then finally reaches your bloodstream. Unfortunately, this whole process impairs absorption so you’re not really getting as much of the supplement as you think you are. When you get an injection, you bypass the entire digestive system so absorption is quicker and more efficient. Another benefit is that injections tend to last longer, so you don’t need to get them as frequently as you would need to take pills.

If lipotropic injections sound like something you may be interested in, give us a call at either of our locations (602-374-3374 or 480-968-5673). We would be happy to talk to you and answer any of your questions. If you’re already sold, come on in and see us whenever is convenient for you! No appointments necessary. Remember, our special offer ends 10/31!

Raspberry Ketones: What Can They Do For You?

Our product of the month – Mango-Plex with Raspberry Ketone – is one of the top selling Raspberry Ketonesupplements here at Valley Medical. This supplement is loaded with beneficial ingredients, including African mango seed, green tea, green coffee bean, and raspberry ketones. Wait, what? Raspberry ketones, you say? I’ve heard about those before, but can you tell me more? Well, we’re glad you asked.

What Are They?

Raspberry ketones are natural substances that give raspberries their smell. Cranberries, kiwis, and blueberries also contain small amounts of raspberry ketones, but as the name not-so-subtly points out, the concentration is highest in raspberries. Raspberry ketones are used in small amounts in some processed foods as a natural flavor, but in higher doses, they are being used in many weight loss supplements, including Mango-Plex.

How Do They Work?

Researchers became interested in raspberry ketones as a weight loss supplement when they noticed that the molecular structure was similar to that of two other substances already known to boost metabolism: capsaicin and synephrine. Because the structure was so similar, researchers concluded that raspberry ketones would work in the same way as these two metabolism-boosting supplements. Then they set out to test that theory.

The Science

Researchers’ suspicions were backed up when a 2010 animal study reported that raspberry ketones can help increase the breakdown of fat and stimulate the release of adiponectin, a hormone that helps boost metabolism and regulate blood sugar levels. In most cases, thinner people have higher adiponectin levels than people who are overweight. On the other hand, low levels of adiponectin are associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.

If you’re interested in seeing what raspberry ketones – paired with several other metabolism-boosting ingredients – can do for you, take advantage of our October special, which includes a bottle of Mango-Plex with Raspberry Ketone.
