Its About Transformation

The Body by Vi Challenge is about Transformation. It is about challenging yourself to set goals to actually set a time frame for when you will accomplish these goals instead of saying you want to do something but in very vague terms. The Body By Vi Challege is about becoming healthy so it is important to do physical activity alongside taking the shakes and Vi-pak.

Good nutrition is the cornerstone of good health. Yet eating right to get the proper nutrients to maintain a healthy body and mind can be challenging. While many of us take supplements, they are not all created equal. The Vi-pak® boasts patented and scientifically formulated ingredients and is exclusively distributed through the representatives of ViSalus Sciences®. The Vi-pak® uses four unique supplements to provide our bodies with the nutrients it needs for health. By combining the Multi Mineral & Vitamin Formula and Super Charged Anti-Oxidant, with the Anti-Aging & Energy Complex and Omega Vitals formulation, you have an unprecedented anti-aging system for ultimate health and nutrition.

I was lucky enough to be invited on a call that the creator of the ViPak Dr. Seidman was giving in order to help everyone understand whyt he ViPak is such an amazing product and why it works. The call actually focused on a single part of the Vi-Pak the Omega Vitals.

Dr. Seidman –

 Has been funded by the National Institute of Health for over 20 years. He has been repeatedly voted by his peers as being in the Top 1% of doctors across the country. Dr. Siedman focuses his research and work on the field of Aging. Everyone ages but we don’t have to feel old. We can age gracefully and still be healthy. Aging is a mindset. It is a biological but we can help offset the results by incorporating healthy habits into our lives. The Vi-Pak is all about Anti-Aging helping the body to continue to function and regenerate.

Essential Oils are vital
We need Omega’s 3 – 6 however most Americans get about 20 times too much Omega 6. Even most supplements out there are a 3 to 1 Ratio of Omega 3 to 6’s which will not give optimal results. The Vipak is a 12 to 1 Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratio.

When taking vitamins and minerals we need to be careful that they actually have the desired effect and that the have been produced in such a way as to take the outside toxins out of the end results. The ViPak has been Molecularly Distilled in order to take out the Mercury from the fish oil. This process can also help to take any petroleum the fish might have ingested out of the finished product so that we are not putting toxic chemicals into our bodies when we are trying to help ourselves become healthy.

Where is the fish sourced for the Omega Vitals?
The fish used in the Vipak is a Deep Sea Fish not a shallow water fish to help reduce toxins even further. Due to the double distillation process used there is no fishy smell after you take the pill.

How can Omega Vitamins Help Me Become Healthy?

Arthritis There is compelling data that Essential Oils help reduce the swelling in those who suffer from Arthritis up to 36% in joints and muscles. It helps to activate ATP to burn more calories.

Skin dermatitis can be treated with the use of Essential Oils.

Diabetics have had really good results when they include a properly formulated Essential Oil supplement into their daily diet some can even come off of injections and just take it orally others who were taking oral glucose etc can now balance their diabetes solely through food.

Cancer There are studies that show that cancer tumor growth slows with the use of Essential Oils. They help decrease inflammation.

Other possible uses: MAY help with children who have AD/HD become more balanced there are some sources that say Essential Oils can have positive effects on those with Autism spectrum disorders. Essential Oils help with brain Health. It can also help with balance problems.

As with any supplement to your diet Excersice is key and supplement wisely.
