Off the Sugar?

Herbal Verbals

Someone say sugar??? Love it or hate it it&;s here to stay! That doesn&;t mean to say that you have to be a slave to it!

Are you feeling stressed, tense, carrying a few more kilos than you&;d like? Or are you just feeling a bit foggy in the head, maybe dealing with internal parasites?

Believe it or not, if you are feeling these symptoms, it is directly related to your sugar intake.

I have designed a product called “OFF THE SUGAR” to stop sugar cravings as they happen!

Sugar addictions can contribute to the following:




·Attention Deficit



·Insatiable appetite

·Parasite proliferation

“OFF THE SUGAR” balances blood sugar levels,  and can act as a SUGAR REPELLANT, rightin the mouth where the cravings become the driving force to be fed.


Instead balance your blood sugar with the herb Gymnema.

Benefits of Gymnema:

By suppressing the taste of sweet foods,the desire to eat them is also suppressed. Picture a luscious-looking large piece of chocolate candy, which you know, despite the tempting look, is not sweet.

Why bother to eat it? It is important to remember that this effect of Gymnema sylvestre&;s will last for only one to two hours. If you are using the herb to break the sugar habit, then it would be wise to take some Gymnema sylvestre before social events or other times when you might be tempted to dive into the tray of sweets.

Gymnema sylvestre significantly reduces the metabolic effects of sugar by preventing the intestines from absorbing the sugar molecules during the process of digestion. Because there is a change in the absorption of sugar, there is a consequent change in the blood sugar level


High sugar content products:

Soft drinks, pastries, alcohol, processed / packaged foods, junk foods and all artificial sweeteners eg. aspartame


We also sell Stevia in our online shop for a healthy alternative sweetener, and Coconut Palm Sugar for a low GI, high nutrition form of sugar.

Being a Personal Trainer since 2008 I can say that sugar addiction is a very real problem.  I myself had gone on a Mt. Dew binge and would kill a 6 pack nearly everyday. We all know that Mt. Dew has the highest sugar content of all the soda&;s out there.  If I didn&;t have it, I either had a caffine headache or a sugar headache.  I needed both to function.  Now I don&;t drink soda, tea was a good alternative, no fast food, no processed, no sweets.  It&;s hard to get to this point, but once you&;re here, your cravings practically disapear.  Yes every now and then I am craving something sweet, but can usually counter act it with fruit or veggies instead.  Do it for you!!  I promise once you cut out the crap, you&;ll always feel so much more alive!!
