Optimize Your Body's Natural Healing Response

The Zone and Pro-Resolution Nutrition

The concept of the Zone began more than 35 years ago when Dr. Sears reasoned that the underlying cause of virtually all chronic disease was excess inflammation below the perception of pain. The complexity of his Zone concept has continued to evolve with new discoveries in molecular biology. This evolution involves how the body can resolve and repair the damage caused by inflammation which occurs every time we have an injury (both internal and external) to the body. 

The way the body heals from injury involves activation of both hormonal and genetic factors. This is called the Resolution Response.  There is no drug that can activate the Resolution Response, but the correct diet can. Without an optimal Resolution Response, it is simply impossible to maintain a state of wellness thus preventing us from reaching our goals. 

The Zone Pro-Resolution Nutrition system is a comprehensive dietary system including the Zone Diet, omega-3 fish oil and polyphenols which makes it is easier than ever to get to the Zone and optimize the bodies Resolution Response.

Pro-Resolution Nutrition
A comprehensive dietary strategy to get you in the Zone.

STEP 1: Reduce Inflammation with the Zone Diet

The Zone Diet was designed to reduce inflammation created by the foods we eat.  The diet focuses on hormonal control by minimizing the intake of foods known to promote inflammation such as refined grains and starches, saturated fats, and omega-6 fats like those found in vegetables oils. It also focuses on controlling the hormone insulin which is produced after we eat a meal to help with blood sugar control. This is done by eating the right balance of protein to carbohydrate at every meal and snack. Having the wrong balance can make us over produce insulin. Over time this can lead to insulin resistance which increases inflammation.

STEP 2: Resolve Inflammation with Omega-3 Fish Oil

When inflammation in our bodies is out of balance, or unresolved, it is one of the main reasons we gain weight, become sick, and accelerate the aging process. Omega-3s are the building blocks for hormones that help combat or resolve inflammation. The two omega-3s in fish oil that have been most widely studied for their clinical benefits pertaining to decreased inflammation are EPA and DHA. OmegaRx 2 is a rich source of EPA and DHA, supplying one of the highest concentrations of omega-3s (75%) available in the consumer marketplace. These fatty acids are the building blocks to make a newly discovered group of hormones (resolvins) that are critical to resolve residual inflammation.

OmegaRx 2 Supports the Following Benefits:

Heart Health

Brain Health

Behavior and Mood

Athletic Performance

Vision Health

Pre/Postnatal Health

STEP 3: Repair Inflammation with Polyphenols

Polyphenols, found in fruits and vegetables, help repair the damage that results from unresolved inflammation. Most of us fall short on our intake of fruits and vegetables with only 1 out of every 10 adults in the U.S. meeting the recommended intake (5 servings per day). This is why supplementing with Zone purified polyphenols can help fill in the gaps. Polyphenols act as antioxidants to help combat inflammation and promote repair through their activation of key genes. Zone Polyphenols work to support the body’s natural healing response by aiding in the repair of damage caused by diet and exercise-induced inflammation. 

Zone Polyphenols Supports the Following Benefits:

Reduce Inflammation

Anti-Oxidants

Enhance Metabolism

Promote Tissue Repair

Blood Sugar Support

Gut Health

Eye Health

Brain Health

Heart Health

How Do You Know If You're In The Zone?

The Zone™ is a real physiological state in your body that can be measured in clinical tests. If you are in the Zone, you have optimized your ability to control diet-induced inflammation. This inflammation is the reason you gain weight, become sick, and age faster.

There are three clinical markers that define if you are in the Zone. If all three clinical markers are within their ideal values, you are in the Zone. Otherwise, you are not.

Clinical Marker

TG/HDL ratio
From your diet.

Ideal Value

< 1

What It Indicates

Level of insulin resistance in the liver.

How to Test Yourself

Typically included with normal blood work within your cholesterol panel. Ask your doctor.

Clinical Marker

AA/EPA ratio
From your diet & fish oil.

Ideal Value

1.5-3​

What It Indicates

Level of diet-induced Inflammation in the body.

Clinical Marker

HbA1c
From your diet & polyphenols.

Ideal Value

5%

What It Indicates

Level of Advanced Glycoslated Endproducts (AGE) tied to your blood glucose.

How to Test Yourself

To measure your level of blood sugar over a three-month period, ask your doctor.

Based on these values, less than 1% of Americans are able to manage diet-induced inflammation and fall within the parameters of the Zone. In the Zone, you will live a longer and better life because you are controlling diet-induced inflammation. That is the secret to maintaining wellness.
