The Wealth of Health

I've lost 30 pounds over the past three months with the aid of a dietary supplement called Natural A.C.E. When I started the product in mid-March I weighed 228 pounds, and by June 18 I was weighing in at 198. After just taking the pill for one month, I noticed a definite change in my energy, and others must've noticed too because they started asking about it and wanted to know how they could get it. After so many people started asking me, I couldn't help but sign up as an Associate for the AMS/SABA Company that manufactures the product.

Well, here I am 2 1/2 months into selling the product and I'm beginning to make some serious money at it. I mean in just the past 2 weeks I have made $340! Hey ... that's groceries! Needless to say I'm beginning to get just a lil' excited! =) It's been fairly easy to do really; I mean this product pretty much sells itself. All I have to do is "be a product of the product," as Rhonda Reed, a director in the company, would say.

It has come to my attention however, that there are some who question the product and/or my success as a consumer or distributor of it. Some are bold enough to just ask or say what they think, but others are coming across loud and clear simply by their avoidance of the whole subject — people from family to friends to co-workers, etc.

So let me just set the record straight ...

First of all, it's an all natural product — a vitamin supplement in essence! Who out there doesn't need to take there vitamins everyday anyway? Momma fed you your Flinstone chewables for a reason! A.C.E. has seven ingredients which include:
Vitamin B6 — Clinically proven to reduce PMS in about 66-79 percent of women and of the vitamin regimens that have undergone controlled studies in the treatment of Autism, the most successful and best studied has been B6.
Cocoa Powder — Contains flavonoids, a form of antioxidant that can help defend your body's cells from free radicals (contaminants in the blood that can damage your cells), which lead to a weakened immune system and thus a higher risk of contracting illnesses.
Chromium — An essential mineral because the body needs it, but can not produce it. Chromium works with insulin to improve the transportation of glucose out of the blood and into the cell improving health in many ways which include a decrease of blood sugar, a decrease of bad cholesterol and increase of good cholesterol circulating in the blood, decrease of blood pressure, a decreased risk of heart disease and stroke, decreased body fat and an increase in lean body mass.
Spirulina — The richest beta carotene food and an ideal anti-aging food; it has concentrated nutrient value, is easily digested and loaded with antioxidants. I remember Momma telling me to eat my carrots, because they would help me to see better. She knew that beta carotene is good for healthy eyes and vision. Well, spirulina beta carotene is 10 times more concentrated than carrots. Iron is essential to build a strong system, yet is the most common mineral deficiency — spirulina is rich in iron and magnesium and is easier to absorb than iron supplements. Spirulina is the highest source of B-12, which is essential for healthy nerves and tissue, especially for vegetarians. I could go on. Google the benefits of spirulina because I just don't have enough room on this blog. Twenty years of research proves eating beta carotene rich fruits and vegetables also gives us real anti-cancer protection. 
Green Tea Extract — Green tea has been extensively studied in people, animals and laboratory experiments, and results suggest that it can be useful for the following health conditions: atherosclerosis or particularly coronary artery disease; high cholesterol, cancers such as bladder cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, colorectal cancer, esophageal cancer, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, skin cancer and stomach cancer, all while boosting your metabolism and aiding in the burn of calories and fat.
Geranium Flower — Geranium is an excellent diuretic and antispasmodic. This is the ingredient that helps to flush all that water weight gain off you! This natural herb is also popular as an alternative allopathic medicine for a variety of problems, including tension and anxiety as well as fighting stress.
And A.C.E. Also Has All Natural Sources of Caffiene!

Okay ... so remind me again ... what about wanting all those health benfits makes me a kook?!

Secondly, Here's something disturbing that I just learned last night ...

Adderall is medication used for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder in adolecents, right? Well, did you know that it is composed of mostly amphetamines. It is thought to work by increasing the amount of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain. So like other powerful stimulant drugs, such as methamphetamine and cocaine, Adderall directly affects the mesolimbic reward pathway in the brain (the part of your brain that tells you you're feeling good). Because of this, Adderall has a relatively high potential for abuse and addiction. College students are abusing it to improve their test performances, and I just learned that last night that statistics have shown an increase in the abuse of Adderall among women my age — 20-30-something-year-olds who are dog tired because they work full time and need the extra energy to keep up with dance recitals, soccer games and just common household cleaning! The same is true for Lortab! I know this one is true, because truthfully (and shamefully), I will admit that before A.C.E. I was so desperate for energy that I would occassinally sneak one or two from my husband's prescribed stash. Now, for the record he is no longer prescribed it, but when I realized what I was doing and why I was doing it I became very scared and unsure of myself. That was a real wake up call for me! Luckily I found A.C.E. before I went too far down a path I couldn't turn from!

Finally I want to say this:
Yes, I have lost 30 pounds, and for the first time ever, it was easy! I've tried so many different products but this is the first thing that has ever worked for me. But I want to clarify that I'm not just "not eating." There are people who are watching me just waiting on me to fail because they think this pill is just some phase I'm going through. I am eating breakfast, which is the most important meal of the day. I usually have a fruit and a light or low fat yougurt or a healthy cereal w/no-fat or low-fat milk. I make myself eat a mid-morning snack and lunch (both also of a healthy choice), and I am not on the couch anymore! Because A.C.E. has motivated me to get up and move, I am doing pilates and walking a mile or more in the early morning. Trust me ... I believe in this product. You will lose weight even if you do nothing, but you're not gonna want to do nothing! And you will only see the weight fall off quicker by starting and comitting to a healthier diet and physical routine. Drink your water, count your calories, keep a food journal and find friends that will keep you accoutable! It's important that I make this point, because like I said, I know some total health nuts who are watching me thinking to themselves, "She can't do it on just a pill alone. If she don't start exercising she's gonna plateau!" For the record: I am exercising, but please bear in mind that what worked for you won't work for me. I'm glad for those people who have the will and determination to just get up at 5 a.m. and go for a run or who are in the gym 4 times a week muscle training. Good for you! But that ain't what's gonna work for me. Not only could I not find that kind of motivation, but I just don't have that kind of time. And ya know what else ... you're eventually gonna palteau too, and when you do call me cause I got something that can help you lose those last 10-15 pounds of your goal weight. If you're as healthy as you claim to be then you need this product more than anybody anyway! I mean, didn't you read those ingredients up top? (Whoo! Glad I got that off my chest!)

So anyway ... if you've been keeping up with me and have been thinking about trying A.C.E. Or if you're like me and need that extra motivation, don't hesitate to call. I mean really ... what do you have to lose?
