Dr. Al Sears says, "If you are on a statin drug, or short on energy you need ACCEL!"

"Conventional CoQ10 works wonders for the heart, but the problem I’ve had is keeping my patients’ blood levels high enough.

"I've discovered a new form of CoQ10, which I call Accel, which has an absorption rate, which is 8 times the regular coenzyme Q10. And that’s just the beginning…

"The best thing is that a new study confirms our "secret" vitality booster...this space age pill can actually double your energy!"  



For Heart Health and Weight Loss
Huff and Puff!

For heart health and weight loss you need to huff and puff, like the Big Bad Wolf.          

Not so you can blow the little pig’s house down, but to build lung power, improve your arteries, heart and brain…and maybe even convince your body to shed a few pounds of surplus fat.


You may be surprised to learn that by adding four or five short bursts (30 seconds) of huff and puff intensity, each followed by resting for up to two minutes, your body will repay you with exceptional heart health and weight loss as a bonus!


For years the experts have preached that the longer you exercise, the better, but the recent research reveals a different story. 


A Canadian study compared individuals who did 30-second "all-out" sprints three days a week to a group who worked at moderate-intensity for 40 to 60 minutes five days a week. The “sprinters,” who exercised for only a fraction of the time, improved just as much as the long duration exercisers.


Another study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine showed that men and women who exercised at a higher intensity had lower blood pressure, lower triglycerides, higher HDL (good cholesterol) and less body fat than the “moderate intensity” exercisers.


Alan Sears, M.D., founder and director of The Wellness Research Foundation in Florida, who has been touting the high intensity exercise for heart health and weight loss for many years, explains how it works.


"Our ancient ancestors never ran long distances without rest or recovery. Their exercise was primarily hunting with short bursts of exertion, followed by periods of rest."


According to Dr. Sears, the problem of doing long sessions of aerobic exercise, such as walking, cycling or using the elliptical machine, is that after about 15 to 20 minutes our bodies switch from burning glycogen (a form of glucose) to burning fat for energy.


In the past this has been looked upon as a good thing, but did not take into account how our metabolism works. 


Dr. Sears says, “When you burn fat, this sends a signal to your body to conserve fat for a future need.”


However, when you use the short huff and puff high intensity routine, your body starts burning fat after your workout to replace the lost glycogen from your muscles/liver that it has just used up during your training. And it will continue to burn fat for 24 hours after you have finished your training!


After a few weeks your body gets the message that it doesn't need to store fat because it doesn’t need it for fuel during the short term exercise.


Short bursts of high intensity exercise can also help increase your lung volume, which according to the famous Framingham Heart Study, is the best predictor of longevity and absence of disease. When your lungs shrink, your oxygen supply plummets, which makes you tired, sluggish and ready for naptime.


According to Dr. Sears, the big mistake with aerobic exercise and jogging is fat utilization. Once you pass the 15 to 20 minute mark, you start burning fat during exercise.

But this tells your body you need fat to burn as fuel during exercise. As a result, your body will make and store more fat to prepare for your next run or aerobic workout -- a never-ending cycle making it impossible to get rid of that stubborn fat that never seems to go away.

PACE® exercise weight loss routines are never more than 10 to 20 minutes.

That means your body burns carbs during exercise, not fat. After you finish the routine, your body starts burning fat to replace the carbs it just burned.

In fact, your body will burn fat for up to 24 hours after your PACE®  routine. It even burns fat while you are sleeping! After a few weeks, your body gets the message that it doesn't need to store excess body fat at all.
