Tune Up Your Body with Curcovia
I have a few health and fitness websites that I check on a daily basis and a few others that I check up on every so often just in case they have some articles that might interest me. Over the last few months I have been hearing more and more on these sites about a herb called Curcovia. The buzz about this herb started quite slowly but has recently become huge with many people attesting to its effectiveness. People all over the 'net are claiming that this "wonder herb" was the answer to their weight loss prayers - allowing them to both lose weight and not put it back on again.
Now it seems as though I can't look anywhere without seeing another Curcovia "success story" with before and after pictures of overweight women followed by slimmer versions of their former selves. This is all fine and well but without actually seeing any clinical testing results, I'm sure I can be forgiven for remaining somewhat sceptical about Curcovia and the results others are claiming to get.
A quick look at the Curcovia website informs me of the advertised effects of taking Curcovia:
Optimises body chemistry for optimal weight loss results.
Increases energy levels and eliminates feeling of lethargy.
Restores balance to the body's hormone levels.
Increase metabolism levels for more effective fat burning.
I guess the professional journalist in me likes to get to the truth of things and, as soon as I returned to my office, I had a chat with my boss about possibility of doing a test of Curcovia for myself and my publication. So I set the wheels in motion and set about organizing everything I would need in order to ensure the results (or lack of) I got from Curcovia were genuine.
Before I start consuming a herbal supplement that I have never used, I decided to do a little investigation into the origins of Curcovia and which ingredients it uses. From their website, I found out that Curcovia is made from a plant called Curcuma Comosa (part of the ginger family) and is sourced in the northern provinces of Thailand. The plant is processed and bottled in capsule form which in my opinion is a convenient way to take the tablet. The packaging claims that Curcovia is 100% natural and free of side effects which also a benefit as the last thing you want to do while dieting is pump your body full of even more unhealthy substances.
From my research, it seems the primary function of Curcovia is that it balances the estrogen levels within your body, thus having an effect on the enzymes produced by the body. By ensuring that there is a healthy equilibrium maintained, the body will inhibit further production of lipoprotein lipase (LPL, an enzyme that favours the intake of fat into cells) and stimulates the production of hormone sensitive lipase (HSL, an enzyme important for a women's metabolism). This HSL enzyme ensures the metabolism is working quickly and enhances lipolysis, which is the scientific term for "breakdown of fat". That is the theory behind Curcovia.....but if it truly works as advertised remains to be seen.
Starting My Test
I was determined to give Curcovia a fair trial so I decided I would maintain my regular 2 trips a week to the gym and not alter anything regarding my diet. Also, to ensure I gave Curcovia ample time to show effect, I concluded that 4 weeks should suffice to gauge whether or not Curcovia was actually doing what it claims to do.
With this in mind I accessed their admittedly professional looking website and place my order for a 4 week supply. The ordering process was hassle free and all of the wording and instructions were clear and concise. When the bottle arrived I was impressed with the quality of their packaging and the design of the label; I always believe that a company that takes care in the presentation of its product is more likely to adhere to higher standards regarding the actual contents.
My 4 week Curcovia Daily Life Test
Starting Weight = 151 Pounds
I started taking Curcovia on Monday, but it wasn't until Wednesday where I truly felt the first effects. Wednesday is one of my 'gym days' where I go for an after work exercise. Usually I dread this and have to haul myself onto the exercise bike. But this Wednesday was different, I experienced no 'mid-afternoon slump' and instead felt energised and truly motivated to go and have a good workout.
On Sunday evening I stepped on the scales....I felt apprehensive as checking my weight is never much fun. 146 pounds! Not bad at all, a 5 pound loss after the first week!
The elimination of my 'mid-afternoon slumps' continue and is actually affording me greater concentration levels at work too. I also find I'm snacking less during the day, my body seems satisfied to wait until dinner time for more food. It's much easier to resist eating a chocolate bar when you are not experiencing intense cravings!
My twice a week visits to the gym continued well this week and I feel much more motivated after my first week loss...just hope it wasn't a lucky week and that the weight loss continues. Once again I ended my week with a trip the scales on Sunday.139 Pounds.....that's actually quite amazing!
I haven't been under 140 pounds for many years. Maybe this Curcovia herb might be for real....I'll not get too optimistic just yet though.
I hurt my ankle on Monday morning as I slipped coming out of the shower so I had to miss my gym workouts this week. this had me worried as I didn't want to stop just when I was starting to see some decent results and also didn't want to invalidate my Curcovia research by changing things.
The truth is I didn't have to worry. I checked the scales as usual on Sunday and was amazed to find a further 5 pounds had been removed from my body. I am now able to fit into clothes I hadn't considered for a long time. I'm now at 134 pounds and counting.
I am truly buying into the Curcovia hype train now....the results I have experienced so far are just undeniable....this herb truly has the ability to back up its ambitious claims.
This week saw my sister's birthday come and go. As a gift I thought I would buy her something that would truly benefit her life....a bottle of Curcovia. If she has the same experiences as me then I'm sure she will be thanking me in a few weeks time. Beyond that, we had nice meal at our favourite Italian restaurant to celebrate and for once I was completely unconcerned about what I was ordering...I even had a piece of chocolate cake for desert!
Once again I found myself amazed on Sunday evening with another 3 pounds lost and sitting pretty at 131 pounds. I will definitely be ordering more Curcovia and take it every day as part of my lifestyle.
Simply amazing. I am absoluetly ecstatic with the results.
I went from 151 pounds down to 131 pounds in just 1 month.
I lost 20 pounds in just 4 weeks with no special training or diets.
Like myself, you may be slightly apprehensive when it come to believing in the abilities of Curcovia, but I'm sure that if you try it for yourself you will end up with the same conclusion as myself - Curcovia is an amazing herbal supplement that provides noticeable results within weeks. Perhaps in the future I will do a follow up study on how my sister got on with her bottle of Curcovia....I'm sure the results will be similar, if not even more impressive!
If you have used Curcovia then let me know and share you story with me. I'd love to hear success stories from other women that have discovered this wonder herb.
