The Zone Can Help You
Reach Your Wellness Goals
Each of us might have a different definition of wellness, but most of us would agree that being well means being free of illness or disease. At Zone Labs our goal is to help you stay well for as long as possible. We want to help you maximize the quality of your years, not just the quantity. While defining wellness might seem subjective to most, Dr. Sears believes that wellness can be defined based on the levels of inflammation within our bodies. As the level of inflammation rises our health and wellness begins to decline. Our dietary approach works to minimize inflammation created by the foods we eat, while helping to boost our bodies natural healing response through the supplements we take.
How to get Started
Being well comes down to controlling inflammation in our bodies. The 1st step to reducing inflammation starts with what you’re eating. The Zone Diet® is a highly personalized dietary program that is compatible with a wide range of dietary philosophies ranging from vegan to Paleo. The Zone Diet is a protein-adequate, carbohydrate-moderate, and low-fat eating plan, rich in fermentable fiber and polyphenols. The Zone Diet is personalized to your unique protein requirements based on your muscle mass (not your weight) and your level of physical activity. The types of protein you consume are based on your dietary philosophy. The types of carbohydrates you can eat are based on your current levels of insulin resistance. The fat you consume is primarily monounsaturated fat. The balance of protein, carbohydrate and fat at each meal allows you to balance your hormones to reduce your caloric intake without hunger or fatigue for the next four to five hours after a Zone meal.

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. 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.

STEP 3: Repair Inflammation with Polyphenols
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 improved immunity 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.
