Stress kills. This can be really scary since a whopping 8 out of 10 Americans are stressed out.
And it’s not only life-changing events that set us on edge; it can be all of the little worries and annoyances that add up. Every week. Every month. Every year.
One big area that stress messes with is our hormones: adrenaline and cortisol.
Like it or not, the human metabolism is hard-wired to tap into the increased focus, strength and reaction time brought on by these surging hormones.
Which is great, every so often, when our ancestors had to run from a predator or protect their tribe from an attacker.
But when these hormones are always on, responding to all of the little stresses we feel all the time, the damage to our bodies can be devastating.
Leading to weight gain, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, cancers and a whole boatload of health problems all linked to a metabolism that's completely out of whack, which in turn causes inflammation.
And inflammation is a core part of all of the diseases of this century.
In an extensive weight loss study, the scientists at the University of Freiburg compared several diet programs. Surprisingly, the participants of the Almased group not only lost more fat than all other groups but also their stress hormones decreased and inflammatory markers went down as well. In the other groups, the markers went up. This means that Almased is able to “deflame” the entire body over time due to its basic ingredients and richness in antioxidants.
And it’s no surprise that Americans reported the highest levels of stress, anger, and worry in a decade. Out of 143 countries, America exceeded the global stress average by a full 20 percent!
And scientists have proven that stress boosts our feasting on sugar and bad fat, and vice versa! High levels of cortisol and insulin may be part of the culprits here too.
While we can’t live in a bubble or get rid of all stress, one thing that makes all of us feel better is being healthier.
And one way we can help our bodies get there is to tackle any weight issues that are making us stressed or feeling bad about ourselves when we shouldn’t.
An important part of that is to boost our metabolism.
But weight-loss drugs and fat-free foods aren’t the answer. They just make everything worse. Look for natural solutions, including healthy foods and shakes that can help increase those energy levels and enhance wellness.
While no food can single-handedly jettison the jitters or add moxie to our metabolism, there is one powerful, and simple, thing you can add to your diet every day to tip the scales in your favor.
Almased may be best known for its ability to help with weight loss by speeding up the metabolism without stimulants, but there's more.
The high protein in Almased delivers a metabolic one-two punch that also helps with appetite control.
And with a formula that is packed with bioactive peptides, like Lunasin, Almased is also able to help fend off some of the toxins that are linked to disease.
Because Almased is a low glycemic index (low GI) food of 27 per serving, it's the preferred choice for herding in blood sugar levels, which helps us feel fewer cravings for sugar and which helps with stress!
Healthy blood sugar control also helps our bodies delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.

Daily stressors can creep into your life without your realizing it, and can soon come to feel normal. Don’t wait until you feel zapped with the signs of lost energy and declining health.
Give your body the vitamins, minerals, and total nutrition it needs to keep metabolism humming and combat the stress of aging.
The availability of phenylalanine and tryptophan in Almased increases a buildup of dopamine and serotonin. Dopamine and serotonin are brain chemicals, usually, referred to as, “happy hormones”, help regulate many bodily functions, such as sleep, memory, metabolism and emotional well-being. The amino acids from both milk and plant sources in the product make Almased not only effective with weight loss but also helps with regulating mood and emotion.
Almased also brings substantial amounts of anti-stress ingredients such as copper, zinc, riboflavin, manganese, selenium, and vitamins C and E.
Vacations, special holidays, and time off in between are healing and necessary for balancing work and health.
Deep, quality nighttime sleep is just as crucial for everyday wellness and Almased can help with that, too!
There is a link between poor sleep and obesity. Researchers found that people who slept less were, on average, heavier and showed an increase in the hunger hormone ghrelin and a decrease in the fullness hormone leptin.
Almased success stories often mention the improved quality of their sleep experience, one of many positive side effects from the Almased shake.
“I was able to sleep better at night. I would fall asleep faster and sleep longer. During the day, I had tons of energy…” - Anthony K.
"On the Almased Program, I don't feel hungry in between meals…my energy is great, and I sleep more deeply and consistently. I've tried numerous diet plans and shakes, but none worked like Almased." - Jan R.
Stress may be a part of modern life. But we don’t have to just accept it. We can beat stress at its own game by giving our body the nutrition it needs and our metabolism the nutrition it craves.
Metabolism and weight loss are forever linked as each one affects the other. If a diet program drops your caloric intake too much, the metabolism goes on autopilot to conserve energy - meaning the body’s fat-burning mode drops down to a snail’s pace. Pretty much a lose-don’t-lose situation.
Fasting has gained popularity, and there’s a lot of talk about intermittent fasting for weight loss. If done right, it can be a way to avoid the famine reaction that stalls the metabolism. Though going without food for extended periods may seem harsh, if prepared, you can be quite comfortable.
If you feel like you’re not running on all cylinders, look over these symptoms of slow metabolism.
If it’s hard to lose weight, your body may have lost its flexibility to burn fat as fuel. However, this can be corrected.
The Almased product has an immediate impact on metabolism after the very first serving.
Your metabolism can be your best or worst employee, depending on how you treat it. When you take good care of your body, your metabolism is willing to work hard for you, ensuring that you will be getting a high return on investment – good health and longevity.
On the other hand, if you deprive your body of proper nourishment, your metabolism becomes vindictive by slowing down its productivity and refusing to show up from time to time, causing low energy levels, stress, and gradual weight gain.
“I’m doing everything right, but the scale just won’t budge!” If you find yourself making several changes but still not noticing a difference, your metabolism could be to blame. In a perfect world, our metabolism would be untouchable, and we would never have to worry about unwanted weight gain, but in reality, our metabolism is as delicate as a newborn baby. It can be affected by many factors, including diet, stress, and sleep deprivation.
