I’m Michael Seidman. I’m a medical doctor, surgeon, scientist and nutritionist
and I’m the medical director of the
scientific advisory board for Vi.
We have developed one of the most important
shakes in consumer history. It’s designed
to help you lose weight. It’s designed to
help you maintain lean muscle mass,
and lean body mass. It’s designed to help
you maintain your weight if you are
of normal weight. We’ve served more than
500 million shakes overall and
helped people lose millions of pounds.
What makes this shake so special and so effective?
There’s a lot of things I’m
going to break it down for you quickly here.
Number one there’s the proprietary
tri-sorb protein blend. We give you
whey hydrolysate, we give you whey
concentrate and we give you a soy isolate.
We’ll talk more about that
in a moment.
The combination here really gives you a
complete protein, it aids in digestion,
and it basically supports the lean body
mass aspects of things.
When people lose weight or on shakes or
on these crazy diets they not only lose
fat but they lose muscle and this really
helps us not lose that muscle.
So this is a brilliant shake with brilliant
opportunities for health and wellness
and weight loss while maintaining that
So people always ask “why whey”?
I say “why not whey”? Whey is
a complete protein it has all of the
essential nutrients and amino acids you
need. So weigh builds muscle it curbs
hunger it has all the essential amino
acids and whey and exercise together make
you less fat. So it’s a very important
component. Soy is a very interesting ingredient.
Soy has been around for
thousands of years. It’s been used by our
Asian colleagues from around the world
and they have less cancer less heart
disease than we do have in America,
except that they move here and adopt
our diets then they have more of those
So why soy? Soy improves muscle and
performance, and muscle retention.
It’s great for brain health it’s great
for bone health it’s great for heart health.
It has a lot of very good
properties. Soy sometimes gets a bad rap
because in it’s totally natural form it
has Genistein and these
are phytoestrogens. So they kind of mimic estrogenic effects.
So if you have a breast cancer or ovarian cancer or any type of cancer that is
estrogen receptor-positive, people
have said avoid soy or avoid soy products.
That’s not entirely true and if
you speak to the world experts on soy
you can still have soy if you have those
problems but it’s moderation my friends.
So our soy just to be safe is isoflavone
free and again it’s non-gmo which means
that is not genetically modified we are
only sourcing the best products for me,
for my wife for my family and for all
of my family at Vi.
Why sucralose? It is a very important and safe sweetener. Its been used by more
than 85 countries around the world it’s
been approved by the FDA, by the
governing agencies. It is very safe
and effective. Also it is very helpful.
If we’re trying to lose weight, we don’t
want something full of sugar.
We want something that’s going to
help us promote that and still maintain
the sweet flavor that many of us,
including me, crave. One of the other
things that you have to realize is that
there’s more than a hundred and fifteen
publications showing the safety of
sucralose. So it’s a is a wonderful
sweetener and the FDA has set specific
limits where it says you can’t exceed
an amount of sucralose in a day. For
that limit you’d have to consume two
thousand eight hundred and sixty two
shakes in a day. So think about that.
If you’re having one or two shakes a day
or even three shakes a day, you’d have to
have 2862 in each and every day to meet
that level where the FDA says you
probably shouldn’t have any more. So it’s not gonna happen.
We also add 5 grams of fiber,
which is a clinically researched fiber.
We all need more fiber in our diet. We have a patented blend of
digestive enzymes, it’s called Aminogen,
which helps facilitate the absorption.
It helps facilitate that digestion it helps
you utilize the whey and the protein and soy.
In summary, our proprietary
tri-sorb blend helps build lean muscle
and burn fat. It’s a great source of
fiber. It’s low fat, low sodium, low sugar.
It’s lower carb than our competition.
There’s no artificial colors.
It’s gluten-free. It’s heart-healthy. It
includes calcium for bone health.
It’s kosher and it has vitamins and
minerals. So if you’re trying to lose
weight, or if you’re trying to
maintain weight this is an outstanding
shake and I encourage you all to try
