The bad news first. People (including us) want a "silver bullet", a pill, that will let us lose weight without changing the basic habits that cause us to gain weight in the first place. In addition to our bad habits, hormone changes as we get older, food allergies, and other factors make it even more difficult for us to lose weight.
The good news. So, while diet and lifestyle changes are vital to achieving and maintain a more ideal weight, dietary supplements may help with factors such as appetite, increasing metabolism, balancing hormones, burning fat, improving digesting, etc.
So here are some of the dietary supplements that have been popular with our customers. Many of them have been made popular on Dr. Oz's TV show.
If you are having a difficult time finding a diet/lifestyle that helps you lose weight, you may want to consider a nutritional consultation with Margaret. She would be happy to work with you to create a customized program for your unique health situation and goals.

Nature's Cortisol Formula® (90 caps)
How It Works:
Cortisol is a hormone produced in the adrenal glands in response to stress. It promotes the formation of glucose, which is used as fuel during stressful situations. Researchers have begun to notice a connection between cortisol levels and weight-management indicators, such as calorie consumption and weight gain.
This formula contains Relora® to help the body manage stress and maintain cortisol levels already within the normal range. Other key ingredients—banaba, holy basil, chromium and vanadium—help maintain blood glucose levels already within the normal range. This product also features DHEA, a hormone precursor that interacts with the adrenal glands, which may subsequently affect cortisol production. Nature’s Cortisol Formula also features decaffeinated green tea extract (60% EGCG), l-theanine (Suntheanine®, which supports the body during times of stress) and calcium ascorbate.
60 mg vitamin C (100% Daily Value) 100 mcg chromium (83% DV), Relora (a proprietary blend of magnolia bark extract and phellodendron bark extract), holy basil leaves extract, green tea leaf extract, banaba leaf extract, l-theanine, DHEA and vanadium.
Take 1 capsule with a meal three times daily. Combine with a sensible diet and exercise program. Please allow two to three months for best results. Individual results may vary.
NOTE: Not for use by individuals under the age of 18 years.

Ingredients: Garcinia cambogia—an extract of the rind of a small, pumpkin-shaped fruit native to Southeast Asia, Garcinia cambogiahas a long tradition of safe use. Our pure extract is standardized to 60 percent of its active ingredient, hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which may promote feelings of fullness, helping you consume fewer calories during the day. Chromium—a trace mineral found in small amounts in whole grains and brightly colored fruits and vegetables, chromium picolinate helps activate insulin, a hormone that helps the body burn blood sugar instead of storing it as fat. By supporting already-normal blood sugar balance, chromium may also help with food cravings that are triggered by low glucose levels. Fiber blend—each stick pack contains 3 grams of soluble fiber from vegetables and short-chain fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), a naturally sweet, prebiotic fiber. Studies show that consuming fiber may help with weight management partly by promoting feelings of fullness.
Recommended Use: Packaged for convenience, Stixated stick packs are easy to take along and use anywhere. Simply pour the contents of one packet into 16 ounces of water and stir. Consume one packet or more daily between meals when you feel hungry
