In This Episode:
Visceral fat is a fat that accumulates in your abdomen. Visceral fat is not the fat that you can pinch on your belly, but the fat that wraps around your organs inside your abdomen, including your liver, kidneys, and pancreas.
Excess visceral fat is a serious problem. It is linked to obesity, chronic inflammation, insulin resistance, increased risk of heart disease, increased risk of cancer, estrogen dominance, mood imbalances, and increased risk of dementia. Since it’s an underlying root cause of many chronic health issues, it is important to understand the best foods to burn visceral fat.

Purality – Vitamin C
If you’ve tried collagen for aging skin and haven’t gotten the results you want… It’s because most collagen is missing a critical ingredient. And without this “missing link,” collagen WILL NOT WORK. With this “missing link” you can turn loose, saggy skin –– into tight, glowing, younger-looking skin!
So what is that missing link I am talking about? VITAMIN C.
Of course, you may know Vitamin C as a powerful immune-boosting nutrient…
But did you know Vitamin C is a critical nutrient for anti-aging? You see, Vitamin C it’s the “glue” that holds collagen together in your body. And if you’re low in Vitamin C, well all of that collagen you’re taking is pointless.
And here’s the thing, not all Vitamin C supplements are created equal…
If you’re taking Vitamin C in capsule or tablet form, you are missing out on key nutrients as they will simply pass through your body without being absorbed (you can thank your stomach acid for that).
However, our friends over at Purality Health have a patented formula that utilizes something called ‘MICELLE LIPOSOMAL’ technology which delivers the nutrients into your bloodstream – proven to be 800% more efficient!
So, if your skin is looking older than you… And the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sagging skin, and otherwise “old-looking” skin frustrates you…
Give Purality Health’s Micelle Liposomal Vitamin C a try! It’s backed by a 180-day money-back guarantee. And today, we have a 30% OFF coupon for you! Just visit puralityhealth.com and use the coupon DRJ to access 30% OFF your purchase today!
Paleovalley – NeuroEffect
If you’re looking for a way to boost focus, memory, and mental clarity, a powerful blend of medicinal mushrooms might be exactly what you’re looking for. Certain mushrooms contain unique polysaccharides called beta-glucans. And a 2012 review on products containing beta-glucans found they can help to naturally increase energy, reduce confusion, boost mood, improve recall and memory, and increase vigor.”
My go-to mushroom blend is Paleovalley NeuroEffect. It contains a potent blend of 8 whole mushrooms, without any grains or fillers like most products, and happily touts a beta-glucan level of at least 26%. PLUS, they’ve included organic coffee fruit extract that gives you the brain-boosting effects of coffee – without the jitters or crash you get with caffeine. Go to paleovalley.com/jockers and grab your NeuroEffect today for 15% off.
