Energy drinks have had a healthy image, at least until now. Researchers J. Anthony von Fraunhofer, MSc, PhD, FRSC, FADM, and Matthew Rogers, DDS at the University of Maryland Baltimore Dental School demonstrated that energy drinks are as much as 10 times more likely to cause tooth decay than Coke! How can this be?

Well, most energy drinks, like Red Bull, provide that boost you feel through multiple ingredients, the most common of which are caffeine and sugar. Some of the popular beverages have as much as 10 teaspoons of sugar in a single serving. That’s a lot of sugar! But the sweetener alone is not what causes the erosion to tooth enamel.
Can you imagine drinking a cup of tea or coffee with 10 teaspoons of sugar? Even those with the worst sweet tooth will stop at 3 or 4. So, to counteract how awful an energy drink that is so sweet would taste, manufacturers balance the sweeteners with acids to create a pleasing flavor.

That’s right…acids that work right through your teeth! It’s the high amount of acids that compound the high amounts of sugar in the drinks. And on top of that fans of the sweet stuff tend to sip all day, not just swig down a drink.

So how can you get sustainable energy and not ruin your teeth?
One possibility suggested by Beverage companies is to swig down energy drinks all at once, rather than sipping, and then to brush your teeth. Not exactly a practical solution for someone on the go!

A simple way to get your energy without it eating your teeth is with sugar-free WINRGY.

WINRGY gives you sustainable energy that comes from vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients. Not a jolt, but energy that lasts for hours. On top of that there’s about the same amount of caffeine as one cup of coffee.

And sweeteners? Well that’s the sweet part. We sweeten with Xylitol, a natural substance that has been demonstrated by dentists to reduce, yes actually reduce, cavities and damage to tooth enamel. Xylitol does this by inhibiting the growth of the mutans streptococci, a bacteria that leads to tooth decay. So not only does WINRGY contain no sugar, it also contains a natural substance that reduces cavities!

You can try WINRGY with Xylitol today and get a 20% discount.

Your teeth will thank you!


Get Healthy in 2011 – Exercise

So many New Year’s resolutions center on losing weight and getting fit either through dieting or exercise, or both. The two facets of health and fitness are inextricably linked. Exercise will help increase weight loss. If you expend more calories than you take in, the simple math says you’ll shed pounds.

But there is an underlying problem that dieters face. For many people, injuries, spinal misalignment, muscle tightness and ailments such as arthritis, cause pain when exercising. Needless to say, an exercise program that causes or increases pain is not going to last! The answer? Try, Pilates!

Contrary to popular belief, Joseph Pilates was not a gay ballet dancer, but a nurse and medic in World War I who developed his popular exercise program to rehabilitate wounded soldiers. Pilates is not a bunch of exercises and stretches you do in the gym, but rather a way that you move in life, in all things you do such as standing in line at the grocery store, working on your laptop, doing cardio on the treadmill or walking, running or biking. The Pilates techniques are applied when you do all sports such as swimming, tennis or even golf.

Pilates techniques help your back and joints by:
• Building a strong inner “girdle muscle” or core
• Developing pelvic stability
• Creating long, lean muscles that are strong, yet at the same time, flexible
• Increasing range of motion in the joints
• Elongating the spine and separating the vertebrae

If you have pain, best is to work one-on-one with a Pilates instructor rather than taking a class. However, even a class or a home DVD should bring relief very quickly.

Success Story
Latin-American World Champion Dancer, Els, has been dancing since she was only nine years old. Her career has been an exciting thrill ride, traveling around the world, winning championship after championship, realizing true success as an accomplished dancer. “As professional dancers, we became fourth in the world, but soon after that my body began to suffer. We were practicing so much and were constantly dancing — my body got so wrecked that I could no longer dance,” Els recalls, remembering how her knees especially suffered. She was devastated when she had to stop dancing but soon opened a dancing school with her husband, Jan, also a world champion dancer. There they teach approximately 700 students and train 30 competitive dancing couples. Because of how she felt, Els was limited in her teaching and was mainly handling the administrative side of the business.

Through their school, she met distributor Carlos, a former dancer. After hearing her story, Carlos asked Els if she ever tried fish oil. “I was already taking some at the time, but Carlos said, ‘Here try mine.’ He gave me the WINOmeg3complex™,” Els recalls. After a couple days, she was amazed at the results. “It’s as if my body has been oiled from the inside out and is back in top form!” says Els excitedly. “Before when I was teaching, I sometimes had to crawl up the stairs, now I don’t — sometimes I even dance up the stairs!” Els was also pleasantly surprised when after adding WIN’s other products, including BioLean®, BioLean Free®, Accelerator™ and LipoTrim™, she lost the 22 pounds she gained when she stopped dancing and had a child.
