EXCESS WEIGHT, OBESITY AND POLYCYSTIC OVARIAN SYNDROME (PCOS)
"Another recent self-report study of women included in the 1992 National Health Interview Survey reported that increased BMI was associated with decreased preventive health care services. Obese women were significantly more likely than non-obese women to delay breast examinations, gynecologic examinations, and papanicoloau smears, despite an increase in physician visits as BMI increased. The authors concluded that even when obese women have more frequent physician appointments, they seem least likely to use preventive services."
Women who suffer from excess weight or obesity are more prone to
developing Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), a hormonal
imbalance which is a leading cause of infertility, as well as
skin conditions, excess body and facial hair and male pattern
PCOS is also known as Sclerocystic Ovarian Disease, Stein-Leventhal
Syndrome and Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD). An estimated
5-10% of all women of childbearing age in the U.S. are affected
by this disorder.
Polycystic ovaries, which have cysts or fluid filled sacs
throughout the ovary, secrete abnormally high levels of the male
hormone testosterone, which can disrupt a woman's normal
menstrual cycle and prevent ovulation, making pregnancy
Root causes of PCOS are excess weight and obesity linked to
Insulin Resistance, an imbalance of glucose and insulin levels,
which also increases the risk of developing the cluster of
cardiovascular risk factors called Metabolic Syndrome. PCOS
sufferers with Metabolic Syndrome are also at greater risk of
developing Gestational Diabetes during pregnancy as well as
liver, breast and colon cancer.
Insulin Resistance is caused by having too few insulin receptor
sites on the cell’s surface. The reduction in the number of
sites prevents enough glucose, or sugar, from passing through
the cell wall to be converted into energy. Instead,
free-floating glucose remains in the blood stream where it
causes elevated blood sugar levels. The sugar is sent to the
liver where it is converted into fat and then stored throughout
the body. The end result can be weight gain and obesity.
In addition, the imbalance in glucose and insulin levels affects
the kidneys' ability to remove salt and inflicts damage on the
cardiovascular system, specifically to the lining of the
arteries which can lead to a build-up of artery clogging plaque.
All are key factors in developing Cardiovascular Disease, heart
attacks and stroke as well as abnormal cell growth, implicating
the imbalance as a possible factor in the development of certain
Excess glucose also lays the foundation for reversible
Pre-Diabetes by raising blood sugar to potentially dangerous
levels. If left unchecked, this condition can lead to the onset
of Type 2 Diabetes, which must be managed for the rest of your
lifetime. Type 2 Diabetes may require daily insulin injections
and significantly increases the risk for blindness and
At the present time, there is no single pill that will reverse
excess weight and obesity, just as there are no pharmaceutical
drugs that will heal PCOS. But there are ways to address Insulin
Resistance. If you wish to return to optimum health, you should
consider a system that combines nutraceuticals (vitamins, herbs
and minerals that are disease-specific), a realistic exercise
program, nutritional guidance and a support system that will
help you change unhealthy lifestyle choices.
Insulin Resistance and PCOS are causative factors behind
infertility, which the Insulite System for Excess Weight and
Obesity can help to reverse. The System is specifically designed
to reduce weight gain and testosterone levels via nutritional
supplements, a balanced diet and regular exercise. By decreasing
testosterone, you're apt to reduce ovarian cysts and help
re-establish the delicate balance of your hormones, thereby
enhancing the likelihood of ovulation, without which there is no
chance of becoming pregnant.

how it can reverse the glucose imbalance caused by Insulin Resistance,
often a key underlying cause of PCOS. One of the system's
formulations, InsulX, contains chromium, which boosts insulin
response to glucose.
"I have been on the Insulite
System for approx 3 months. I have lost 33 lbs, my liver
functions are normal and my A1C came back at 5.1, down from 8.03 months ago. I
was taking 10 Glucovance pills daily, now I take only 2 pills in the
AM. My blood sugar is normal, my energy is higher than it has been in
years and I feel great. Insulite along with a change in my diet has
changed my life.
I tell everyone that asks me what I have done to change my life, about the Insulite program.
Your product is fantastic. I have
cut out all sweets, flour, dairy and have no cravings."

"In less than 3 weeks I've started losing
weight again after being
"stuck" on Weight Watchers for about a year. I've lost about 4
starting Insulite but more significantly my blood pressure is
well within normal limits now and I can tell my metabolism is
better. I am not getting that slump between meals and am able to control
between-meal snacking, and I have a lot of energy throughout the day rather
than periods where I need to nap. I just ordered the 6 months
supply. Thank you!"
"Obesity is no longer an American disease. Globalization's bounty—economic development, lowered trade costs, and rising incomes—has turned it into a worldwide pandemic for rich and poor alike. If it's left unchecked, the economic health of developing countries will surely be crushed under the weight."
"I cannot believe the difference
the Insulite System has made in how I feel. My appetite has
changed tremendously. I do not crave carbs and sugar and my
appetite is somewhat diminished."
"There is a clear and consistent scientific literature showing pervasive bias against overweight people. It is logical that the bias begets discrimination. There is now sufficient evidence of discrimination to suggest it may be powerful and occurs across important areas of living.
Studies on employment have shown hiring prejudice in laboratory studies. Subjects report being less inclined to hire an overweight person than a thin person, even with identical qualifications. Individuals make negative inferences about obese persons in the workplace, feeling that such people are lazy, lack self-discipline, and are less competent. One might expect these attributions to affect wages, promotions, and disciplinary actions, and such seems to be the case.
Overweight women, for the same work, receive less pay than their thin counterparts. This does not seem to be the case for men, but overweight men sort themselves into lower-level jobs. There is evidence that promotion prospects are dimmer for overweight individuals, and there are many examples of people being fired on account of excess weight."
"I wanted to let you know how much I
appreciate your caring advice and guiding me towards taking control of my health.
It's hard to express in
words how long I have been trying to find the answers you have so easily
provided for me.
I am so excited about the positive changes in my health and I
can't wait to see where I am six months from now, yet alone the year. Thank

"Middle-age people who are overweight but have normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels are kidding themselves if they think their health is just fine."
"Northwestern University researchers tracked 17,643 patients for three decades and found that being overweight in mid-life substantially increased the risk of dying of heart disease later in life even in people who began the study with healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels."
"Thank you so much for putting me on
the right road!"
"Simply losing 5-7% of your body fat (typically 10-15 pounds) and increasing your physical activity by taking a brisk walk 4-5 times a week can reduce your risk of developing Type
II Diabetes by almost 60%."
"The United States is experiencing an epidemic of obesity. Thirty-four percent of adults are overweight and an additional 30% are obese. Thus, 2 of every 3 Americans have an unhealthy body weight. Obesity contributes to over 300,000 deaths per year, principally through its association with cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and several cancers. Obesity currently is the second leading cause of preventable death and will soon surpass cigarette smoking, the leading cause. Health economists estimate that obesity costs our nation approximately $100 billion a year. And these figures say nothing about the personal suffering of those affected by obesity."
"I started your product and found
it really boosts my system,
helping me get off ground zero, and stop the spiral downwards.
It gave me the
energy to start exercising and prepare healthy meals.
You are all very supportive, even though I am on the other side
of the world
(Australia). I am very glad that I am on your product, your
are also very encouraging, when I am finding things a bit
harder. Thank you for everything."
