7.2 Alkalizing Products
We have seen a ton of our clients get great results in weight loss and improving their overall health with the 7.2 product line. Their motto’s are “Health Made Simple” and “Weight Loss Made Simple” and their products certainly live up to their name!
Their are four products that 7.2 manufacturers four unique products that Ironside Fitness is proud to carry. All their products are organic, gluten-free, sugar free, non-GMO, dairy/egg/soy free, and vegan (but don’t taste like plants). The added bonus of these awesome products is that they help alkalinize your body – the 7.2 name even comes from the optimal pH that your body should be at to reduce risk of illness and disease. A more alkaline body means that you are at reduced risk of cancer as well as colds and flu. A lot of the staples of the every day North American diet, such as lots of meats, processed foods, gluten, and sodas/alcohol make your body more acidic and at greater risk of disease – the 7.2 products help balance that!
Here’s a quick summary of the products, and please feel free to click the link below to get even more info:
7.2 Shake. A high-quality protein shake best used post-workout or as a meal replacements.
7.2 Greens & Green Caps. Everyone knows that eating greens (or more greens) leads to better health – but it’s really hard to eat the equivalent of 2 dinner plates of greens every day consistently. And that’s the beauty of this product – it is a greens powder (or capsule) that provides all your daily requirements for greens. And they taste great! You won’t find another greens mix out there that has these benefits and tastes this good.
7.2 Alkaline Booster. Affectionately called ‘The Hall Pass’, this capsule is great to take before a large indulging meal that may contain some of the less-healthy things you can think of (pizza and wine night, for instance!). It helps immediately regulate your body pH and reduce the negatives that can come with that sort of meal (heart burn, bowel issues, hangovers, etc). Yes, even hangovers, as some of our staff has raved that taking it at the end of a night on the town significantly reducing pain the next morning! It also works as a natural sleep aid.
7.2 Recovery. This is a wonder-product. It helps alkaline your body, reducing joint pain and inflammation, and delayed onset muscle soreness (‘day after workout pain’). It is also a natural stimulant that can act as a substitute for caffeine. It is the first product in the world proven to deliver molecular hydrogen right into your body and bloodstream – this has a huge anti-inflammatory effect! We’ve had many clients that have had joint pain for years that was remedied within 2-3 days by taking 7.2 Recovery.
We sell all these products, plus a 3-day sampler pack so you can try them out without committing to a full-sized bottle.
Trust me though, these products are amazing and can change your life. For more info please go to: http://ironsidefitness.sevenpoint2.com/products.html?country=ca
DoTerra Essential Oils
Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends depending on user experience and desired benefit. Essential oils are usually administered by one of three methods: diffused aromatically, applied topically, or taken internally as dietary supplements.
Our sense of smell influences many physiological pathways including the stimulation of hormones and other metabolic processes. Aromatherapy is founded on the body’s predictable response to specific olfactory stimuli. Essential oils are widely used in aromatherapy applications. Certain essential oils, when diffused in the air, can be very stimulating while others can be calming and soothing. Beyond emotional benefits, diffusing essential oils can purify air of unwanted odors and some airborne pathogens. Low or no-heat essential oil diffusers are recommended as they do not change the chemical structure of the oil being diffused. Essential oils can also be used as cleansing and purifying additives to laundry and surface cleaners throughout the home.
Due to their natural molecular composition, essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically. Application of essential oils can have immediate, localized benefit to the target area of application. They have restorative and calming properties and can be used effectively with massage and beauty therapy. They are also natural disinfectants. The chemical structure of essential oils also allows them to be absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin for internal benefit throughout the body.
Essential oils can also be used as dietary supplements supporting a variety of healthy conditions. Some essential oils have powerful antioxidant properties while others help support healthy inflammatory response in cells. Many essential oils are generally regarded as being safe for dietary use, but some oils should not be taken internally. Do not use any essential oil product internally that does not have the appropriate dietary supplement facts on its label.

“The Stick played an essential role in my knee pain recovery. Charmaine has used the Stick on tight, sore muscles around my knee after every workout for the last month with amazing results. It reduced my muscles soreness and pain noticeably and also broke-down the muscles knots unlike any treatment I have ever tried. I recommend the Stick to everybody. It really works!!”
