We all need a network of people who can provide support, especially when embarking on a weight loss journey…
And our customer Sarah is proof!
The 36-year-old found the encouragement she needed to stick to her diet and exercise regime from the thousands of members in our Inno Supps online communityand lost 24 pounds in only four months!!
But that is only half of Sarah’s weight loss story…
Sarah also took the advice of many in our online community and took an “inside-out” approach to lose weight, prioritizing two contributing factors to weight loss— gut health and sleep.
Sarah works at a restaurant and says she would come home wired and unable to wind down after a long shift— until she stumbled across Night Shred.
Thanks to the clinically-backed natural ingredients in our unique nighttime thermogenic sleep aid, Sarah says she can finally relax, fall asleep fast, stay asleep all night and wake up refreshed and ready to tackle her busy day.
After seeing how well Night Shred worked and the scale moving down, Sarah decided to address another root of weight gain she’d seen a lot of people in our online community talk about— gut health.
“I lost a good 5-10 pounds once I started taking the Complete Gut Health Stack. I’ve been trying all last year to get back into it, and honestly, Inno Supps pushed me in the right direction. I don’t know if I could have done it without the supplements and support.”
Most people don’t realize that lack of sleep and an unhealthy gut are two leading causes of weight gain and weight loss resistance. Sarah had no idea until she heard so many people in the community talk about it and how they overcame it with the help of Night Shred and the Complete Gut Health Stack!
And look at her now! In only four months, Sarah went from 167 pounds down to 143 pounds, is no longer bloated and uncomfortable every day, has energy and restored self-confidence.
Don’t let these common pain points hold you back any longer. Give Night Shred and the Complete Gut Health Stack a try so you can start seeing rapid, long-term results, just like Sarah!
And don’t forget about the power of personal connection! You don’t have to do this alone! We have an entire community of like-minded people in our Inno Supps VIP Facebook Group. We’d love for you to join our exclusive community!
“You have a choice…. either invest in your health or pay for it later.”
These wise words come from our customer David, whose story and transformation we want to share with you today!
Like many people, David put his health on the back burner during lockdowns and gained some excess body fat. He says he looked at himself in the mirror and decided right then and there that he would start training again.
After trying many supplement brands and being unsatisfied, he decided to try Inno Supps…
And the result?! David went from 220 pounds with excess body fat to 209 pounds of rock-hard lean muscle. But more than that, David says prioritizing his health and finding supplements that actually worked to make the process easier and more effective has changed everything about his life.
Now, David is on a mission to continue to gain muscle and share his journey with other people saying…
“If I did it, then there is a lot of potential in other people as well. I know people are hesitant and say eating healthy and supplements are too expensive. I tell them you better pay for it now than later with hospital bills.”
The Simeon Panda Stack is exactly what Elite Professional Athlete Simeon Panda takes daily and contains the products David used to transform his body (Advanced ISO Protein, Volcarn 2000, Max Strength HCI and Night Shred) plus five other supplements (HMB+, Inno Shred, Storm Maker, Inno Cleanse and CLA 1000) that work together to help you…
✓ Experience rapid strength and muscle gains

Hello, Inno Fam! Have you ever been curious about what really happens inside your body when you practice intermittent fasting? Like what benefits come throughout the timeline of your fast?
You’re about to embark on an enlightening journey as we explore the incredible changes that unfold during different stages of intermittent fasting. For the record, although intermittent fasting benefits everyone differently, typically the best results happen between 18 and 48 hours.
So with that being said, let’s dig into the details!
Hour 0 – Starting the Fast
As soon as you begin your fasting window, your body starts utilizing the glucose stored in your liver and muscles as its primary energy source. This helps maintain your blood sugar levels and provides the energy needed for your daily activities.
Hour 4 – Fat-Burning Begins
Around the fourth hour of your fast, your insulin levels drop, and your body begins shifting gears. With little glucose left for energy, it starts breaking down stored fat into fatty acids, which are then transported to your liver and converted into ketones. These ketones become your new source of fuel, bringing a sense of mental clarity and focus.
Hour 8 – Autophagy Activation
Once you reach the eight-hour mark, the process of autophagy begins to kick in. During autophagy, your cells start cleaning up shop, removing damaged components and recycling unnecessary parts. This cellular “housekeeping” is linked to various health benefits, such as improved longevity and reduced risk of chronic diseases.
Hour 12 – Deeper into Ketosis
At the 12-hour point, your body has fully transitioned into a state of ketosis. Ketones are now powering your brain and body, and you may notice increased energy levels and improved mood. As fat-burning continues, you might also experience gradual weight loss and improved metabolic function.
Hour 16 – Enhanced Fat Adaptation
As you reach the 16-hour mark, your body becomes even more efficient at using fat for energy. This enhanced fat adaptation allows you to sustain energy levels throughout your fasting window, making it easier to resist hunger pangs and maintain focus on your tasks.
Hour 20 – Repair and Renewal
Approaching the 20-hour mark, your cells are undergoing a process of repair and renewal. Autophagy is in full swing, promoting cellular rejuvenation and reducing inflammation. This cellular maintenance contributes to healthier skin, improved immune function, and better overall well-being.
Hour 24 – Growth Hormone Surge
After a full day of fasting, your body experiences a surge in human growth hormone (HGH) production. HGH plays a crucial role in tissue repair, muscle growth, and fat metabolism. This natural boost in HGH can be beneficial for those seeking to build or preserve lean muscle mass.
Beyond 24 Hours – Extended Fasting Effects
If you venture into longer fasting periods, your body continues to adapt. During extended fasts, some individuals report even more profound autophagy benefits, enhanced mental clarity, and a heightened sense of mindfulness regarding their relationship with food.
Breaking the Fast – Reintroducing Nutrition
The magic of intermittent fasting lies not just in the fasting window but also in how you break the fast. It’s essential to ease back into eating with nourishing foods, avoiding processed or heavy meals. This gradual reintroduction allows your digestive system to readjust without causing discomfort.
The Bottom Line…
Intermittent fasting takes you on an incredible journey through various stages of metabolic adaptation and cellular rejuvenation. From tapping into fat stores for energy to activating the powerful process of autophagy, your body thrives during intermittent fasting, promoting better health and overall vitality.
Remember, each person’s experience during the timeline may differ, and it’s crucial to listen to your body throughout your fasting journey. As always, consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new dietary regimen, especially if you have underlying health conditions.
Are you ready to embark on your intermittent fasting adventure? Embrace the experience and enjoy the amazing benefits it can bring to your body and mind! Happy fasting!
Summer is in full swing and we’re loving the sun-kissed days, laughter-filled evenings, and, of course, mouthwatering BBQ parties! But if you’re trying to maintain a healthy diet, the allure of the grill can be a double-edged sword.
But never fear! With a little planning and mindfulness, you can indulge in the pleasures of summer BBQs while staying on track with your diet and fitness goals. In this blog, we’ll share seven tips to help you enjoy those sizzling BBQ gatherings guilt-free.
1. Plan Ahead
Preparing for a BBQ event begins long before you step foot into the party. Reach out to the host and inquire about the menu, so you can mentally plan your plate in advance. If possible, offer to bring a dish that aligns with your diet, ensuring you have at least one wholesome option available.
You should also have a light snack before heading to the party to curb your appetite. This will help you make smarter choices when facing the grill feast.
2. Choose Lean Proteins
Protein is a crucial component of any diet, and BBQs offer an abundance of grilled meats to satisfy your cravings. Opt for lean protein sources like skinless chicken, turkey burgers, or fish. Avoid processed or heavily marinated meats, as they might contain hidden sugars and unhealthy fats.
Grilling vegetables alongside your protein can add more fiber and nutrients to your plate, making it a well-rounded and delicious meal.
3. Be Mindful Manning the Grill
When you’re the one manning the grill, take control of the cooking process to make it diet-friendly. Trim off visible fat from meats to reduce unnecessary calories, and avoid using excessive amounts of oil or sugary marinades.
You can experiment with flavorful herb and spice rubs to enhance the taste without compromising your dietary goals.
4. Cut Back on Sauces and Condiments
Traditional BBQ sauces and condiments often contain added sugars and unhealthy fats. Instead, try making your own healthier versions using natural ingredients like pureed fruits, low-sodium soy sauce, or Greek yogurt.
Alternatively, use these condiments sparingly or consider skipping them altogether to focus on the natural flavors of grilled foods.
5. Get Plenty of Hydration
Amidst the summer heat, it’s essential to stay hydrated. Opt for water or infused water with slices of fresh fruits and herbs instead of sugar-laden beverages.
Alcohol can also be a hidden source of empty calories, so if you choose to drink, do so responsibly and consider lower-calorie options like light beer or spritzers.
6. Watch Your Portions
It’s easy to get carried away with all the delectable dishes at a BBQ, so practice portion control to prevent overindulgence. Use a smaller plate and start by filling it with veggies and lean protein. Allow yourself a small portion of your favorite treat, savoring every bite.
Remember, it’s not about depriving yourself, but finding balance.
7. Get Active and Have a Little Fun!
Make the most of the BBQ gathering by engaging in active games and socializing. Participate in fun activities like beach volleyball, Frisbee, or a friendly game of tag.
Not only will this burn some extra calories, but it’ll also keep you away from the temptation of mindlessly munching on high-calorie snacks.
The Bottom Line…
Embracing a diet-conscious approach to summer BBQs doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the fun. With a little preparation, smart choices, and mindful eating, you can relish the flavors of the grill while staying true to your health and fitness goals.

Temperatures are soaring all across the globe, and it’s important to stay hydrated in this heatwave. Not to sound morbid, but recognizing the signs of dehydration could mean the difference between life and death!
Dehydration happens when our body loses more fluids than it gets, and it’s not something you want to mess with. But hey, don’t worry, there’s a simple solution!
Proper hydration is like magic for our overall health. It keeps our body temperature in check, helps with digestion, and makes sure all those essential nutrients and oxygen reach our cells.
Plus, hydration comes with some perks. You’ll rock better physical performance, clearer skin, sharper brain function and that perfect mood balance. And that’s not all – it can even save you from pesky problems like kidney stones, constipation and painful urinary tract infections. So, let’s toast to hydration and beat this heatwave like champs! Stay cool, stay hydrated!
First, let’s talk about some surprising and even strange signs of dehydration:
1. Fatigue and weakness
Dehydration can lead to low blood pressure and reduced blood flow to the brain, resulting in fatigue and difficulty focusing.
Swap out coffee, which can worsen dehydration, for ginger tea to boost your energy and mental focus.
2. Dry, flaky skin
Hydrated skin cells are plump and supple. If your skin feels dry, flaky or lacks luster, it could be a tell-tale sign to increase your water intake.
You can check for dehydration by pinching the skin on the back of your hand — if it remains “tented” for more than a few seconds after you let go, your skin cells are thirsty!
3. Dark yellow urine
When dehydrated, the body tries to conserve water, leading to darker urine due to higher concentrations of waste products.
Monitoring the color of your first morning urine can indicate your hydration level — pale yellow means you’re hydrated, while dark yellow is a signal that you need more water.
Your brain relies heavily on water, so dehydration can cause brain tissue to temporarily shrink and pull away from the skull due to fluid loss. This can result in painful headaches and migraines as signals that you need to increase your fluid intake.
5. Bad breath
Saliva has natural antibacterial properties that help keep your breath fresh. Dehydration reduces saliva production, allowing bad bacteria to thrive in a dry mouth.
If you’ve been reaching for mints more often, you might just need to hydrate!
6. Digestive issues
Dehydration leads to reduced production of digestive juices, which can cause problems like acid reflux, gas and bloating.
Drinking more water, preferably at room temperature, can help improve digestion.
When lacking water, your body might take water from your large intestine, leading to constipation as it compensates with food waste in your lower digestive tract.
8. Worsening of allergy, asthma and arthritis symptoms
Dehydration can trigger increased histamine production, making symptoms related to immune-related disorders such as allergies, asthma and arthritis much worse.
Increasing water consumption may help alleviate symptoms during difficult allergy seasons.
9. Unhealthy carb cravings
Dehydration during exercise depletes glycogen faster, leading to carb cravings. Drinking water with citrus or berries can enhance taste and help replenish glycogen stores and reduce cravings.
10. Muscle cramps
Dehydration can cause electrolyte imbalances, leading to muscle cramps. Inno Greens, an all-in-one gut health and hydration formula, contains electrolytes and plant-based ingredients high in water content, which can be just what you need for supporting hydration and muscle function.
The bottom line…
Proper hydration is vital for our overall health, and recognizing the signs of dehydration is crucial to avoid its adverse effects. And water isn’t the only solution — you can also add a hydrating supplement like Inno Greens (or check out this recipe with hydrating BCAAs) to your regime for essential electrolytes and plant-based components to support hydration and overall health.
Welcome to the world of all things intermittent fasting! If you’re curious about this trending health practice that’s got everyone talking, you’ve come to the right place. In today’s blog, we’ll take you through the ins and outs of intermittent fasting and show you how it can benefit your overall health and wellness. Let’s get to it!
What is intermittent fasting?
So, what exactly is intermittent fasting? It’s not a diet; it’s a pattern of eating. Intermittent fasting involves cycling between periods of eating and fasting. Unlike traditional diets that focus on what you eat, intermittent fasting focuses on when you eat.
Different intermittent fasting methods
There are several methods of intermittent fasting, and you can choose the one that fits your lifestyle best:
The 16/8 Method: This method involves fasting for 16 hours and eating within an 8-hour window. It’s as simple as skipping breakfast and having your first meal at noon and the last one before 8 pm.
The 5:2 Diet: With this approach, you eat normally for five days a week and restrict your calorie intake to about 500-600 calories for the other two non-consecutive days.
Eat-Stop-Eat: This method involves fasting for a full 24 hours once or twice a week. For example, you eat dinner and then fast until dinner the next day.
Alternate-Day Fasting:As the name suggests, you alternate between fasting days and regular eating days.
The Warrior Diet: Involves fasting for 20 hours and eating one large meal in the evening.
One of the primary reasons people try intermittent fasting is for weight loss. By reducing the eating window, you naturally consume fewer calories, leading to weight loss over time. Additionally, fasting periods help your body tap into fat stores for energy, promoting fat-burning.
2. Improved Metabolism
Intermittent fasting has been shown to positively impact your metabolism. It can enhance insulin sensitivity, which means your body can better regulate blood sugar levels, potentially reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes.
3. Enhanced Brain Health
Fasting stimulates the production of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein that supports brain health and cognitive function. This could potentially protect against neurodegenerative diseases and improve memory and focus.
4. Increased Energy and Endurance
Contrary to what you might think, fasting can boost your energy levels. During fasting periods, your body releases adrenaline and norepinephrine, providing you with a natural energy boost. This can also enhance your physical endurance.
5. Cellular Repair and Longevity
Fasting triggers a cellular process called autophagy, where your cells remove damaged components and regenerate. This self-repair mechanism is essential for healthy aging and longevity.
6. Simplified Meal Planning
Intermittent fasting can simplify your life by reducing the number of meals you need to prepare and plan for. It’s a great option for busy individuals who want to eat healthily without constant meal prep.
Getting started with intermittent fasting
If you’ve decided to give intermittent fasting a try, remember to start slowly and gradually increase the fasting period. Stay hydrated during fasting periods and focus on eating nutrient-dense foods during your eating window. Most important, listen to your body and make changes as needed.
And of course, you should always consult with a health care professional before starting any new eating pattern, especially if you have any health conditions or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Remember, intermittent fasting is not a quick fix, and results may vary from person to person. It’s about finding a sustainable way of eating that you enjoy and that works for you.
So, are you ready to embark on an intermittent fasting journey to better health? Give it a go, and see how this eating pattern can positively change your life!
