REVERSE INSULIN RESISTANCE
DOES INSULIN RESISTANCE CAUSE BELLY FAT?
If you are having problems shifting stubborn belly fat, insulin resistance could be to blame. When you eat carbohydrate-rich foods, such as fruit, bread, starchy vegetables and sugary snacks, they break down into glucose which moves from the bloodstream into your body’s cells to burn as energy.
However, if you have insulin resistance, your body’s cells don’t respond to the insulin hormone as efficiently. This fuel struggles to burn as energy, your body finds it easier to store it as fat around the midriff.
You can overcome this condition through diet, lifestyle changes, and exercise. You can also supplement to reverse insulin resistance by making Thrive organic greens juice powder part of your weight-loss management program.
This first nutrient block is a proprietary combination of Banaba leaf, Super Shilajit, and OmniMin AC™ is an insulin sensitivity blend to control blood sugar and accelerate the reversal of insulin resistance in your body.
BANABA LEAF EXTRACT
Banaba leaf ( Lagestroemia Speciosa ) has been used for thousands of years in India and the Philippines to naturally treat diabetes (1) and hyperglycemia (elevated blood sugar).
The hypoglycemic (blood sugar lowering) effect of banaba extract is similar to that of insulin—which induces glucose transport from the blood into body cells.
Banaba leaves contain the minerals manganese and zinc, and the active ingredient Corosolic Acid which has strong antioxidant properties that help prevent damage caused by free radicals.
Corosolic Acid affects how cells absorb glucose once it’s introduced into the body. It has been shown in studies to help lower blood sugar within sixty minutes.
It also helps to correct leptin problems and control food cravings that are typically found in overweight people who have elevated blood sugar levels. The average human response is a 10-15% decrease in blood sugar within two hours.
Banaba is also used for sustained weight-loss management. The corosolic acid in Banaba leaves slows and reduces the absorption of carbohydrates by the body.
Banaba leaf may also be effective in treating metabolic syndrome (2), a group of pre-diabetic conditions that increase the chances of developing heart disease and stroke.
|Researchers during a study at Mukogawa Women’s University in Nishinomiya, Japan found that treatment with banaba leaf lowered blood pressure, normalized fat metabolism, and decreased the body’s inflammation levels.|
Shilajit (3) is a thick, sticky tar-like substance found in the Altai, Himalaya and Caucasus Mountains. It is used in Ayurveda, the traditional Indian system of medicine. It has at least 85 minerals in ionic form, as well as Fulvic Acids, Dibenzo Alpha Pyrones, Humins, Humic Acids, trace minerals, vitamins A, B, C and P (citrines), phospholipids and polyphenol complexes, terpenoids. Also, present are microelements (cobalt, nickel, copper, zinc, manganese, chrome, iron, magnesium and others).
The Super Shilajit found in Thrive is sourced from the Himalayas and contains between 50%-63% fulvic acid and humic acids. These super antioxidants are potent free-radicals scavengers and are highly effective in the repair and regeneration of the pancreas.
- Provides energy and revitalization

This trace mineral complex is harvested from Utah’s Great Salt Lake and is rich in magnesium which is also needed for reversing insulin resistance.
Chlorophyll is powerful phytonutrient, known as “Green Blood” and is being used successfully by alternative health practitioners to prevent and treat insulin resistance.
This nutrient block works in synergy with the ‘active greens’ in Thrive’s second nutrient stack.
If you are already wanting to order Thrive, head to the online store:
Thrive is a unique juice powder with a high content of bioavailable nutrients — including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, and phytonutrients — that due to the unique manufacturing process makes the juice powder virtually identical to the freshly squeezed juice in that is retains all its nutrient value when added to water.
These active grasses — Alfalfa, Barley, Oats, Kamut, and Wheatgrass — are not only all organically grown in the rich fertile soil of the ancient seabed of Uintah Basin, but they are all naturally gluten-free.
Thrive’s active greens are especially rich in chlorophyll, which is amazingly similar to hemoglobin and can help rebuild the bloodstream and replenish the red blood cells, which is important while getting your blood sugar under control.
You see, one of the problems of having chronically high blood sugar levels is that it causes excess glucose molecules to attach to your hemoglobin causing the surface of your red blood cells to become abrasive which slowly causes damage to your endothelium. And once the glucose is attached it stays on for the life of the red blood cell, about 2-3 months.
Thrive’s active greens are loaded with support nutrition to replenish your red blood cells and control your blood sugar levels.
- Neutralizes free-radicals
- Improve your digestion
- Deodorize your breath
- Balance your body’s pH level
- Detoxify your liver and blood
- Binds and flushes out toxins, heavy metals, pesticides
Let’s now take a closer look at the health benefits of the Thrive active greens…

- Inhibit & melt away plaque – (preventing & reversing atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, heart attack, stroke and peripheral artery disease)
Arginine To Reverse Insulin Resistance
Our bodies can’t live without insulin, but as we age, the ability of our bodies to efficiently use insulin decline. This is known insulin resistance, and that leads to diabetes, which is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. There’s a whole lot more to it at the molecular level, but suffice to say is that, unless we find ways to reverse insulin resistance, we will age faster, develop health problems associated with aging, and die sooner than is necessary.
Regular exercise is one of the best ways to prevent, or even reverse insulin resistance along with a host of other diseases associated with aging.
Healthy eating with a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables is another way to prevent or cure it. But our pace of life these days with long work hours, commute, and family commitments mean that many people do not get the time to prepare healthy nutritious meals and so grab something unhealthy to eat while on the go.
The third way is to supplement with the amino acid and nutrient arginine because it has a broad spectrum of health benefits. One of those being that arginine can help improve insulin sensitivity and reverse insulin resistance. In fact, most major age-related health issues can benefit from this amino acid.
Additional arginine benefits based on scientific research & clinical studies:
- Decreases blood pressure
- Improves outcome after bypass surgery
- Boosts insulin sensitivity and reverse insulin resistance
- Lowers elevated serum triglyceride levels
- Improves diabetes and reverses damage caused by diabetes
- Improves pituitary responsiveness and modulates hormonal control
- Improves irritable bowel syndrome
- Reduces ulcers
- Improves asthma
- Improves Alzheimer’s
- Improves the outcome of cancer treatment
- Improves osteoporosis
- Improves long-term / short-term memory & cognitive functions
- Improves prostate function
- Improves sexual function, libido, performance & satisfaction in both men and women
- Improves renal (kidney) function
- Alleviates cirrhosis, helps to detoxify the liver, and liver malfunction can occur as a result of arginine deficiency
- Alleviates obesity and facilitates weight loss (stimulating the release of human growth hormone from the pituitary gland)
- Improves muscle performance
- Increases human growth hormone (anti-aging)
- Increases your energy levels to a more youthful state

Thrive also supplies your body with:
Vitamin C found in Thrive is the frontline of defense against free radicals. When we’re under stress, we can’t manufacture this important antioxidant. We just use it up and that puts our health in jeopardy. Sadly, the foods we eat today do not contribute to wellness because processed foods contain few nutrients.
Many studies show that mortality from stroke is highest in those with the lowest Vitamin C levels.
So Vitamin C plays a role in 3 ways:
- Super antioxidant!
- Anti-inflammatory – the key to fighting CVD.
- Immune system support – and CVD is an immune disorder disease.
- Necessary for optimum cardiovascular health.
- Low levels may contribute to congestive heart failure.
- Affects the smooth muscle of the endothelium.
- Mortality from heart disease is inversely associated with Vitamin D levels.
|A study conducted at Copenhagen University in Denmark involved 10,000 men and women over a 29 year period. The researchers “observed that low levels of Vitamin D compared to optimal levels that are linked to 40% higher risk of heart disease, 64% higher risk of heart attack, 57% higher risk of early death, and no less than 81% higher risk of death from heart disease.|
THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF VITAMIN D ARE THE LEAST LIKELY TO DIE OF HEART ATTACK, STROKE, OR CANCER.
VITAMIN B3 (Niacinamide)
Vitamin B3 is needed for proper circulation and healthy skin. It also aids in the functioning of the nervous system. This vitamin is an antioxidant and is involved in the regulation of blood sugar and detoxification. It has been shown to exert a favorable effect on cholesterol levels.
VITAMIN K2 (or menaquinone)
Vitamin K2 is an absorbable form of Vitamin K found in certain foods and supplements is used by soft tissues and is helpful for bones, heart tissue and more.
Vitamin K2 not only helps you make insulin but remain very sensitive to insulin too. This means it helps stabilize your blood sugar, protects against diabetes, and prevents the metabolic problems that often arise as a consequence of obesity.
VitaminK2 increases testosterone and fertility in men as well as helping improve exercise performance because it enhances your ability to utilize energy during bouts of physical activity. It also has cancer protection properties by suppressing the genes that make cells cancerous and expressing the genes that make cells healthy.
VITAMIN B6 (Pyridoxine HCL)
Vitamin B6 is a coenzyme that works with over 100 other enzyme systems in the cell. What’s more, this vitamin is involved in more bodily functions than almost any other single nutrient. It affects both physical and mental health.
Vitamin B6 is extremely important for the formation of proteins and structural compounds, neurotransmitters, red blood cells, and prostate glands. It’s also critical in maintaining hormonal balance and proper immune function.
Vitamin B6 plays a role in cancer immunity and aids in the prevention of arteriosclerosis. It inhibits the formation of a toxic chemical called homocysteine, which attacks the heart muscle and allows the deposition of cholesterol around the heart muscle. Vitamin B6 is also helpful in the in the treatment of allergies, arthritis, and asthma.
VITAMIN B12 (Methylcobalamin)
Vitamin B12 plays a critical role in proper energy metabolism and immune and nerve function. It is essential to the manufacture and normal functioning of blood cells and for the production of nucleic acids, which make up DNA. B12 also helps maintain proper mental functioning and mood.
Vitamin B12 is needed to prevent anemia. It aids folic acid in regulating the formation of red blood cells and helps in the utilization of iron. It aids cell formation and cellular longevity.
Vitamin B12 is linked to the production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that assists memory and learning. Only very small doses of B12 are needed to experience its benefits, but it is essential to health that you get enough B12 every day.
Early signs of a potential deficiency of B12 in the nervous system might include numbness, tingling, loss of feeling sensation, burning sensations, muscle cramps, nerve pain and slowness of reflexes.
So if you experience…
- Tiredness and feelings of weakness
- Less-than-optimal nervous system functioning
- Hard time sleeping
- Less-than-optimal eye health
- Loss of appetite and unintended weight loss
- Occasional constipation and gas
- Feelings of mild moodiness
- Less-than-optimal memory
- A tendency toward nervousness
- Less-than-optimal balance
- Less-than-optimal liver or heart health
- Premature gray hair
- Occasional digestive issues
…you may need to supplement with vitamin B-12.
|It takes a very long time for a paradigm shift to take place, especially in medical science. We now know that the three simple B vitamins found in Thrive help stave off CVD and explains why our vitamin B depleted food supply may be the real culprit behind the epidemic of cardiovascular disease.|
Folic Acid regulates cellular metabolism. It is considered a brain food and is needed for energy production and the formation of red blood cells. It is the most commonly deficient vitamin in the world. Studies have demonstrated that it is difficult to get an adequate daily amount of folic acid because only 50% gets absorbed in food.
Folic acid supplements can be 100% absorbed by the body. Taking supplemental folic acid, along with B6 and B12, will substantially reduce your homocysteine levels. When homocysteine builds up inside cells and spills into the bloodstream, it damages arteries and reduces the integrity of vessel walls, laying the groundwork for the accumulation of deposits and blockage of the arteries.
Elevated homocysteine levels are likely responsible for 30% to 50% of the heart attacks and heart deaths that occur each year.
Vitamins B6, B12, and folic acid all play a crucial role in preventing the buildup of this toxic substance.
Folic acid is especially important for women of childbearing age to guard against giving birth to a child with spina bifida. Only folic acid, taken as a supplement, has been shown to substantially reduce the risk. Folic acid may also help depression and anxiety.
Magnesium participates in more than 300 reactions in the body; helps control blood sugar levels; helps control blood pressure. You can read more about Magnesium in my blog post: Benefits of Magnesium For Heart Health And Well-Being
Chromium Picolinate is used to treat chromium deficiency because the picolinate acid helps the body absorb chromium which is an “essential trace element” that’s necessary for human health. Chromium Picolinate is also used to control blood sugar, lower cholesterol, or to aid in weight loss as it works with insulin in the body to metabolize carbohydrates.
Resveratrol – it is the rock star of antioxidants. Resveratrol is a phytonutrient found naturally in “superfoods” like red wine. Along with helping to keep arteries clear from forming plaque and promoting improved heart health, this phytonutrient has many other health benefits:
- Anti-aging – activates our longevity gene
- Cognitive and brain function
- Balances blood sugar levels
- Speeds up cellular repair
- Signals the body to inhibit cancer development
- Improves cardiovascular function
- Reduces the risk of excessive blood clotting
- Reduces excessive cholesterol
- Improves energy production
- Has antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial effects
BLACK PEPPER EXTRACT
Black pepper extract is the concentrated and condensed form of black pepper. It is widely used for centuries in traditional Eastern medicine to treat gastrointestinal distress, pain, inflammation, better liver protection and increased supplement absorption making them more bioactive and more effective. Studies have also suggested is has fat-fighting potential by blocking fat cell formation. When mixed with cinnamon and turmeric it can increase insulin sensitivity and reverse insulin resistance.
Cysteine is an amino acid and an important structural and functional component of proteins and enzymes. It helps against cellular damage by free radical compounds, eliminate metal ions and potentially harmful toxins from body tissue and to help treat or prevent respiratory problems such as asthma.
Beet is rich in antioxidants, dietary fiber, calcium, iron, potassium, folate, and manganese, along with other nutrients. Beets are naturally rich in nitrate, compounds that can improve blood flow and lower blood pressure, leading to many health benefits.
Stevia (Stevia Rebaudiana) is an herb in the Chrysanthemum family which grows wild as a small shrub in parts of Paraguay and Brazil. The glycosides in its leaves, including up to 10% Stevioside, account for its incredible sweetness, making it unique among the nearly 300 species of Stevia plants.
There are indications that Stevia (or Ca-he-he) has been used to sweeten a native beverage called mate since Pre-Columbian times. But a natural Scientist named Antonio Bertoni first recorded its usage by native tribes in 1887.
The raw Stevia leaves and herbal powder (green) are reported to be 10-15 times sweeter than table sugar. The refined extracts of Stevia called stevioside (a white powder, 85-95% Steviosides) claim to be 200-300 times sweeter than table sugar.
Stevia has virtually zero calories and may lower blood sugar levels making it safe for diabetics.
