Want good health?
Sleep on it. 

Do you ever wonder why doctors, health experts and your mom are always bugging you about getting enough sleep and managing stress? A good nights rest is vital for health and well-being — and essential when it comes to weight control. 

Many dieters buy into the idea that a healthy lifestyle is as easy as watching what you put into your mouth. While that is a great start, true well-being begins with understanding the importance of all “ fat factors” including nutrient sufficiency and sleep. During the holiday season, when everything from your eating schedule to your car-pool schedule is thrown for a loop, it’s nice to know healthy weight and sleep go hand in hand. 

Sleep maintain a balance of the appetite hormones ghrelin and leptin. When you do not get enough sleep your level of ghrelin, the hormone that makes you feel hungry, increase. Simultaneously, your levels leptin, the hormone that makes you feel full, decrease. They fore you feel hungrier when you are not well-rested, even after eating up you may feel less satisfied. 

One Target you want to hit to make sure you are doing what is best for your sleep, your cravings and your healthy weight is optimizing your neurotransmitters. Lack of sleep disrupts that balance of our feel-good hormones, dopamine and serotonin. This may lead to to increase cravings and fragments sleep. Serotonin, the neurotransmitters responsible for optimal mood and healthy weight, also quiet food cravings and assist you in the production of melatonin for better sleep quality. Serotonin is dependent on your dietary or supplemental levels of vitamin C, B vitamins, and the minerals calcium and magnesium. 

There are also amino acids such as taurine, glycine and tyrosine that balance your dopamine levels in the body, so you can relax when you need to for a better disposition and to ready yourself for sleep. 

This approach is not just good for the late-night hours, but can benefit you throughout the day as well. A healthy balance of Serotonin and dopamine can help you make good choices during your day-to-day activities. With the balance, you are less likely to choose takeout or other quick and easy food options. Without it, you may decide to skip your workout or become less productive at work. 

You have many choices in how you support your waking and sleep cycles. It appears he right combination of vitamins, minerals and amino acids do some of the heavy lifting for a day with robust energy and a peaceful, deep sleep.

Thank You Vilmos!

When I decided to improve my health I reach out to Vilmos, to be honest, I was a little skeptical. I lost weight in the past using weight watchers a few times, and I was curious about his approach. However, it turns out the investment was worth it because I lost over forty pounds in six months, but this time I’m confident I can keep it off. I learned so much about myself in the last 6 months. I even saw improvement in other areas of my life.

Full of energy and loving it.

THANK YOU, Vilmos!!! Your program improved my habits and my body, and I continue to improve my habits every day. I can’t thank Vilmos enough for caring, understanding, and holding me accountable to make sure I stay on the path to success.

I tried a few diets in the past that lead to frustration and stress — I lost some weight but I became emotional like anyone really needs that. I was referred to Vilmos, and after our discovery meeting, everything clicked. I’m really enjoying the supplements Vilmos created for me.

Vilmos saved my life. For over 20 years i suffered with fibromyalgia that lead me to medication. 20 years after taking my first medication for the fibromyalgia, I end up 20 years later on a total of 8 medication for allergies, ulcer, blood-pressure and a lot of nutrition deficiency’s plus 30 pounds. My blood work from my doctor only got worst after trying different weight loss program and counting calories. After talking with Vilmos I realize he was the right person to help me. For him it was consistency, not a quick fix, which was hard for me because i’m not great with change. After focusing on my ulcer the first 3 days I can tell the difference, I was sold. Six months later my doctor took me off of 5 medication because my blood work was that good and I loss 25 lbs and that is hard for someone that’s about to hit 70 years old. Today i’m taking my custom cocktail supplement Vilmos had created for me to address my vitamins deficiency, trim tea to help with weight loss and ultimate aloe for my digestive system. Today I’m eating healthier and have a lot of energy, so I can’t help but refer people to him, he is great at what he does. Thank you Vilmos, I am you’re number one fan!

I've been searching for awhile for supplements that would help me reach my goal! Things have to really impress me for me give a review but this works so it's easy to do! Vilmos and his team are Bert knowledgeable and the products have really helped me and now my wife! I was the Ginny pig lol!

I discussed my health concerns and goals with Vilmos. I wanted improvement in joint health, good overall circulation, and hopefully to lose a few pounds. At his recommendation, I began the MultiVitamin, and later added Isotonix OPC-3 , and Bromelain Plus. Vilmos is very knowledgeable, and I appreciate that he explains in detail what is in the supplement and how it targets the problem. I believe these products are helping to eliminate my inflammation, improving my joint function; and I definitely plan to continue this program.

I love taking the Daily essentials pack, it was recommended by Vilmos because I was having issues with being tired a lot and feeling low with energy. Since I have been taking it i feel like my rest is actually making a difference. I do not feel tired all day any more It has helped me in ways I can't even describe. Love love it....
