Time to boost your weight loss
It’s January, the season where we renew our focus on weight loss. This year nearly everyone’s talking about the ketogenic diet, the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat program that promises everything from better brain health to weight loss.
Originally designed as an epilepsy treatment in the 1920’s, the ketogenic diet now has studies showing it reduces blood sugar and obesity, while lowering inflammation and improving brain health. Perhaps the best-known proponent is Dr. David Perlmutter, neurologist and author of the book “Grain Brain.”
If you want to learn more about the diet, come browse one of the many books we’ve brought in on the subject. These include “Quick & Easy Ketogenic Cookery,” “Quick Keto Meals in 30 minutes or less,” “The Keto Paleo Kitchen,” and “Dr. Fife’s Keto Cookery.” Each book covers the diet principles then offer a host of tasty recipes.
While you’re here you can browse our large selection of keto-supporting products. Garden of Life has just introduced a new line of USDA Organic and Certified Non-GMO products to help promote ketosis. You can choose from two flavors of Keto Meals, which contain 70% fat from organic grass-fed butter powder, or two flavors of Keto Fit, a shake with extra ingredients to help promote weight loss. There’s also Organic MCT Powder, Organic Grass-Fed Butter Powder, along with several flavors of keto-friendly collagen.
Garden of Life’s Collagen Peptides is Keto Certified and Paleo Certified and mixes easily in hot or cold fluids. If you want a bigger beauty boost, Collagen Beauty is formulated with additional silica from bamboo, vitamin C and biotin. If joints and mobility are an issue for you, there’s Collagen Tumeric, which contains clinically studied UC-II Type 2 undenatured collagen shown to improve joint issues along with 550 mg of fermented turmeric!

From Nature’s Plus we have two flavors of Keto Living shakes, a Keto Living multivitamin, and a Keto Living Sugar Control to faster promote insulin sensitivity.
