These little gems are so loved that they have been out of stock for a while, but now that they are back, I’m onto a fresh jar. Let me explain why Yellow Diamonds are perfect for the desk drawer…
I have always had serious difficulty sleeping. I remember actually counting sheep as a kid, except I couldn’t count that high and had to keep starting over. Lying awake all night staring at the ceiling is nothing new to me. In fact, poor sleep is the bane of my existence and, as others in my situation will know, the day after a shocker sleep you lack focus and concentration that makes it hard to really put your back into life. Sometimes you turn to caffeine and sugar to give you that boost. But it’s not ideal. Caffeine and sugar (as heavenly as they may be) over-stimulate your adrenals and can cause trouble sleeping again. It’s a vicious cycle.
I’m always on the lookout for products that will either help me visit dreamland or keep my energy levels up during the day. And after several of my in-the-know girlfriends raved about Osmosis Yellow Diamonds I was keen to try them. The supplements claim to ‘dump toxins, burn fat and boost healthy energy as well as improve blood circulation’. They had me at ‘dump toxins’ but sure, I’ll take those other things too. Yellow Diamonds are also reportedly beneficial for those with high cholesterol, poor circulation, insomnia and migraines.
Let’s get a little scientific for a second. According to Osmosis, the two most important substances in our body are oxygen and ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate). We have over 50 trillion cells in our body that all contain a “battery pack” like cycle that powers the repair and rebuilding of all of these cells. Alas ageing, alcohol, stress and exercise result in reduced levels of this vital component. Yellow Diamonds increases the production and supply of ATP in your cells which results in a variety of benefits.
1) Fat is used by the body to make ATP so Yellow Diamonds increase fat utilization, often from the most stubborn areas (in my case thighs and belly!).
2) Metabolism is increased because the body has a maximal amount o fuel to maintain cellular activity in all 50 Trillion cells.
3) Yellow Diamonds increase lean muscle which improves fat burning going forward.
4) ATP also reduces sugar cravings and appetite in most people.
What really appeals to me is the fact that Yellow Diamonds are designed to support and heal the adrenal glands, which are often overworked in stressed out execs, leading to the production of stress hormone cortisol and resulting in belly fat and that annoying catch 22 situation of feeling fatigued yet not being able to sleep at night. That’s my life right there.
There is a risk of experiencing what’s known as a niacin flush, which is a warming sensation and red, itchy flush to the skin. I admit I have had this a few times, and it does look a little scary but is apparently a positive reaction in the body and evidence that circulation is improving. It wears off in 30 minutes and can be reduced or avoided altogether by taking the capsules with food. For best results, take 2 capsules up to three times per day.
The verdict: After trying Osmosis Yellow Diamonds I definitely notice an alertness and sense of clarity. I particularly enjoy taking them around 3:00pm in the afternoon, when I would normally feel a distinct ‘give me chocolate, or give me death!’ emotional lull. The first few days of taking them my sleeping habits also seem to improve. I definitely think about food cravings less when taking Yellow Diamonds, although I have not noticed weight loss. I do sometimes experience niacin flushes but usually only when I take the supplements on an empty stomach. My skin flushed and became very warm and I got an itchy neck and arms. It looked pretty weird, but was all over very quickly. Perhaps make sure you’re at home if this happens to you. I have to admit, I just feel good when I take these. I can honestly say I have more energy, an enhanced focus and I cope with stress better than usual. Osmosis Yellow Diamonds cost $65 for 120 capsules and can be purchased directly from Osmosis.
