I want to help my diabetes or high blood sugar.

Diabetes is a severe worldwide problem.  In America 1/3 of our population has been diagnosed with this dreaded disease and another 1/3 are suffering with insulin resistance, which represents the next easy step to diabetes. That means that approximately 50 percent of our population basically has this dreaded problem.   Diabetics are divided into 2 types. Type 1 represents only 5 percent of the diabetics. These people don't produce insulin and must have insulin to survive. Type 2 represents 95 percent of diabetics. These people produce too much insulin, but their cells are resistant to receiving insulin driving blood sugars higher. These people need one or many medicines to try and drive insulin into the cells. As you will get to know too much insulin in our blood is not good.  Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes is the single most costly disease to our medical institutions and insurance companies, creating multi billions in dollars of deficits. Diabetes creates eventual kidney failure with possible dialysis, coronary disease and strokes, disease of blood vessels with resultant bypass and amputation, and impaired vision or blindness. As you can see diabetes must be controlled better, and especially Type 2 diabetes or the pre-condition of insulin resistance. Type 2 diabetes simply means that there is too much insulin in your blood stream, and you need to reduce insulin production. It has been shown that with too much insulin in your blood stream these events occur:   

(1) Reduction of circulation to all areas of the body                                                                           (2) Reduction of our immune system           (3) Inflation to muscles organs, and joints     (4) Increased clumping of blood throughout our system                                                  (5) Storing body fat instead of using it for energy, with resultant weight gain and obesity.

As you can see you need to control insulin. If you reduce insulin levels you should see:     

(1) Greater blood flow to all tissues and organs
(2) Improvement of your immune system
(3) Reduction of inflammation everywhere    (4) Burning of body fat with weight loss and increased energy
(5) Less chance of blood clumping.

In 1982 a Nobel prize in medicine was given to Harvard medical school for the discovery of the most powerful hormone your body produces called eicosanoid (eye-kah-sah-noid) which is based on insulin control, which produces these 5 positive factors we just listed above.  They showed that the only way to control this most powerful hormone and reduce blood sugar was to control insulin by diet. Their conclusion that you must have 30 percent proteins, 30 percent fat (monounsaturated), (olive oil, avocados, almonds etc.) and 40 percent carbohydrates (those that do not stimulate the pancreas to release large amounts of insulin) at every meal and snack.  You must control your food to act as a drug to stop insulin excess. At Eicolife we are trying to follow this 30:30:40 equation that was established at Harvard for insulin control. At Eicolife we use 30 percent protein from whey or soy sources, 30 percent monounsaturated fats with our eicolipids, and 40 percent carbohydrates with our eicofibers that do not stimulate large amounts of insulin release.  

We have spent much time and resources to produce this amazing formulation called Eicolife. If you use our product twice daily on an empty stomach, you will hopefully see greater insulin control, hopefully leading to better blood sugar levels. With Eicolife, exercise and life style changes, we hope you will regain your youthful health.

I want to lose weight and reduce my body fat.

America is a country battling the disease of obesity. Since the 1960's the statistics on obesity are very overwhelming in this country. The number of moderately obese people is still about 12 percent (people that are 10/20 pounds overweight) the number of markedly obese (30 pounds or more) has risen from 8 percent to a staggering 35 percent. That is an overwhelming figure to say the least. When a person is moderately obese to markedly obese he or she faces these problems:

(1) Increased risk for diabetes
(2) Increased risk for blood pressure elevation
(3) Increased risk for stroke and heart attack                                                            (4) Increased body inflammation because excess fat tissue is inflammatory

What could be the reason for this marked obesity increase? I feel that the world with rapidly advancing technologies has forced us into the fast food industry for much of our nutritional intake. Our country use to sit down with family to a balanced meal, now we are on the go grabbing food. That has led us to refined high insulin producing carbohydrates, poor protein, and polyunsaturated fats (one of the worst selections of fat possible). What this does is produce excessive insulin, to overcome this excessive blood sugar we have created at each meal, making our blood sugars drop quickly, forcing us to be hungry.  Insulin makes us fat. It is impossible for us to burn body fat when high levels of insulin are present, forcing us to store fat. How can we burn our body fat and lose weight? This is accomplished by a diet of 30 percent good proteins, 30 percent monounsaturated fats such as olive oil, avocados, almonds, or canola oil and 40 percent carbohydrates that don't force heavy insulin responses.     

At Eicolife we use a balanced proprietary formulation of eicolipids from monounsaturated fats, eicofibers, mostly fibers that don't force heavy insulin production. With this precise balanced formulation, Eicolife hopes to slow down insulin production, helping to burn body fat for increased energy and weight loss. It makes sense to use Eicolife and help regain your energetic life style.

          Eicosaniod Origins

The Eicosanoid hormone has no glandular origin, but has been found to be in the cell membrane of every cell (60 trillion eicosanoids). The Eicosanoid sends out feelers or antennae into the blood stream every 5 hours and if these antennas detect a lot of insulin in the blood from your pancreas (poor diet rich in carbohydrate) you will produce the negative Eicosanoid hormone, which does the opposite of the pancreas by :

  • Closing down circulation
  • Immune system depression
  • Body fat storage
  • Joint muscle pain
  • Increased blood sugar


How do I have a healthy heart and prevent strokes?

The key to a healthy heart and prevention of strokes depends on 3 major factors:

(1) Maintaining a good blood flow through the arteries                                                                   (2) Reduction of the cardiac risk factors: circulating insulin in blood stream, cholesterol, triglyceride, and LDL                                                                                                                                   (3) Reduction of stress, and adding a regular exercise program to your daily routines.

(1) Maintaining a good flow through the arteries involves controlling the eicosanoids (we have discussed) positively. These hormones are responsible for producing deep arterial blood flow. These eicosanoids are controlled by precise balancing of proteins, carbohydrates, and monounsaturated fats. When you use Eicolife as a meal substitute you have more of a chance of controlling this hormone in a positive way helping to increase blood flow.  (Eicolife tries to follow this equation of balanced protein, carbohydrates, and monounsaturated fats).

(2) Controlling cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL, and circulating insulin in the bloodstream, all depends on your ability through your diet to control the eicosanoids positively. You must stop excessive insulin production by not consuming large amounts of carbohydrates and balancing carbohydrates by using proper proteins, and adding monounsaturated fats to slow their entry into the blood stream. Eicolife tries to accomplish this. When you have too much insulin in the blood stream it targets the liver to release cholesterol, triglycerides and LDL into the blood stream. Most of the new mainstream thinking of controlling these cardiac risk factors deals with reduction of excessive insulin in the blood stream.  LDL, Cholesterol and Triglycerides lead to production of hardening of the arteries with plaque build up,  that can be broken off in areas of the circulatory system leading to clots in the heart (heart attack, heart failure) clots to lungs (Pulmonary emboli), and/or clots to the brain (stroke).

(3) Reduction of stress is so difficult to do, but by adding daily exercise you help to control stress.

Most people say that when they use Eicolife they want to exercise more and change their stressful life style. Doesn't it make sense to add Eicolife to your daily routine?


I want to improve my cholesterol triglycerides, and LDL levels.

Many people struggle with these levels in their blood work. What can happen if you maintain high levels of cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL?  There is direct association of these three creating heart attacks, strokes, and narrowing of your arteries. Not a great combination of future health. 

These 3 are directly related to elevated or high levels of insulin in your blood stream.  When insulin levels are high it attacks certain enzymes in the liver to release cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL. How do you control the insulin level in your blood stream?  This is controlled by balancing your meals or snacks to be 30 percent proteins, 30 percent monounsaturated fats and 40 percent of non-insulin producing carbohydrates.

This is not easy to do with our high paced life styles, and the fast food industry.  Eicolife provides these exact ratios in an easy to blend drink you can consume quickly and then be on your way to a more efficient lifestyle.  Doesn't it make sense to live your life to the max with Eicolife? 

A Few Words About The Eicosanoid Hormone:

Eicosanoid Hormone

You want to make sure you are producing the positive Eicosanoid.  By using Eicolife daily you stimulate the fat burning process because oils such as olive oil and avocado oil are monounsaturated fats, they do not stimulate insulin production, but catalyze fat burning.  These calories do not matter in the total calories per day, but create a lot of positive energy and really decrease your appetite. The keys to longevity (longer life) and optimal health is (A) stimulating of the positive Eicosanoid and (B) calorie reduction.  By eliminating disease and creating less demand on your body for digestion you increase your life expectancy.

How can I live longer with a better quality of live (longevity)?

Living longer is everyone's wish or goal. To live longer and be in a nursing home or basically house bound with constant assistance is not an ideal longevity pathway. Living longer with the ability to do the things you want to do (travel, exercising, driving, golfing, socializing with family and friends), and requiring little or no assistance is the true definition of longevity. How do we try to obtain this better longevity? The opinion of all experts in longevity is based on 4 factors. The factors that will age you the fastest are: 

(1) Circulating insulin in the blood stream   (2) Uncontrolled blood sugar levels            (3) Cortisol production                                  (4) Free radicals

Let’s discuss each.                                          

(1)   Too much insulin in the blood stream cause:
a. a constriction in blood flow                           b. decreasing our immune system              c. creating tremendous inflammation to all joints, muscles, and organs
d. storing of fats, and not using fat for energy, leading to obesity

As you can see you don't want excess insulin in your blood stream.                           

(2) Uncontrollable blood sugars create disorder in our brain and nervous system, aging us very quickly, as well as leading to   pre diabetes and diabete.     

(3) Cortisol production; this emergency hormone is released when we don't have adequate proteins at every meal and        snack, this will not drive glucose to the brain and the cortisol really inflames the brain, at the same time as it gets some sugar to the brain.                                                                       

(4) Free radical production. Everyone thinks this comes from pollution, cigarette smoking or second hand smoke, but this is  only a small amount of free radicals. The greatest producer of free radicals comes from eating and digesting foods. This takes so much energy from your body to digest food. The energy must come from ATP molecule that requires lots of oxygen to produce ATP.  These oxygen molecules are partially used creating many, many free radicals.

As you can see watching your diet is the single most important factor in producing quality longevity. Eicolife has been shown to help people not be as hungry and eliminate many meals possibly reducing free radical production.  Eicolife has helped some people reduce insulin in their blood streams by controlling carbohydrate cravings.  Eicolife has helped many people manage their blood sugar levels by promoting a healthier life style with exercise and better food choices. Eicolife provides the best type of proteins hopefully lessening the need for cortisol production.  Doesn't it make sense to use Eicolife twice daily to try and produce longer, quality longevity?
