For each medium, we use technologies and procedures to protect personal data. We review our strategies and update as necessary to meet our business needs, changes in technology, and regulatory requirements. We take our security obligations seriously and so should you.

In addition, we have implemented a series of policies, procedures, and training to address data protection, confidentiality, and security, and we update and review the appropriateness of these measures on a regular basis.
Storage and Transfer of Personal Data
We also collaborate with third parties such as cloud hosting services and suppliers located around the world to serve the needs of our business, workforce, and customers. In some cases, we may need to disclose or transfer your personal data within the Company or to third parties in areas outside of your home country. When we do so, we take steps to ensure that personal data is processed, secured, and transferred according to applicable law.
If you would like to know more about our data transfer practices, please contact us at email@example.com.
Retention of Personal Data
We retain personal data for as long as necessary to provide the services and fulfill the transactions you have requested, or for other business purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, and enforcing our agreements. We are required by law to keep some types of information for certain periods of time (e.g., statute of limitations). If your personal data is no longer necessary for the legal or business purposes for which it is processed, we will generally destroy or anonymize that information.
WHAT ARE MY RIGHTS REGARDING MY PERSONAL DATA?
We respect your right to access and control your personal data. You have choices about the data we collect. When you are asked to provide personal data that is not necessary for the purposes of providing you with our Products and Services, you may decline. However, if you choose not to provide data that is necessary to provide a Service, you may not have access to certain features, Sites, Products, or Services.
Access to personal data: In some jurisdictions, you have the right to request access to your personal data. In these cases, we will comply, subject to any relevant legal requirements and exemptions, including identity verification procedures. Before providing data to you, we will ask for proof of identity and sufficient information about your interaction with us so that we can locate any relevant data.

Correction and deletion: In some jurisdictions, you have the right to correct or amend your personal data if it is inaccurate or requires updating. You may also have the right to request deletion of your personal data. Please note that such a request could be refused because your personal data is required to provide you with the products or services you requested, e.g., to deliver a product or send an invoice to your email address, or that it is required by the applicable law.
Portability: If you reside within the European Union, you have the right to ask for a copy of your personal data and/or ask for it to be ported to another provider of your choice.

When we disclose personal information for a business purpose, we enter a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract.The CCPA prohibits third parties who purchase the personal information we hold from reselling it unless you have received explicit notice and an opportunity to opt-out of further sales.
We or our Service Providers also may use your information for the following Business Purposes (as defined in the CCPA) on a day-to-day basis:
Do We“Sell” Your Personal Information?
We do “sell” your personal information as currently defined under the CCPA, meaning that we may rent, disclose, release, transfer, make available or otherwise communicate your personal information to a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration. Further, we may disclose Personal Information to third parties, such as our dealers, in such a way that may be considered a sale of Personal Information under CCPA.
How to Exercise Your Rights Under the CCPA
Under the CCPA you have the right to find out about the personal information that we have collected and how that information has been used or disclosed. You also have the right to request that we delete your personal information or opt-out of the sale of your personal information. If you wish to exercise any of the rights listed below, or if you would like additional information, please contact us at email@example.com
1.The Right to Access and Know About Personal Information Collected, Disclosed, or Sold
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you:
For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily usable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
2.The Right to Request Deletion of Your Personal Information
Subject to certain exceptions, you have the right to request that we delete any of all of your personal information that we collected from you and retained over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. You may request that only a portion of your information be deleted.
We may deny all or part of your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:
3.The Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Your Personal Information
The CCPA provides you with the right to opt out and stop businesses from selling your personal information. This right applies to all California consumers ages 16 or older and may be exercised at any time.
If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at any time (the "right to opt-out"). Our websites and products are not intended for minors. We do not sell the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the "right to opt-in") from either the consumer who is at least 13 but not yet 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time.
How to exercise this right:
Some browsers have signals that may be characterized as do not track signals, but we do not understand them to operate in that manner or to represent a “do not sell” request by you; accordingly, currently we do not view these signals as a do not sell request. We understand that various parties are developing do not sell signals and we may recognize certain such signals if we conclude such a program is appropriate.
We do sell the personal information of Consumers. All consumers, regardless of age, may opt out of our promotional emails by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link on each of our brand emails.
4. The Right to Non-Discrimination
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights, and will not engage in the following behaviors:
When you exercise these rights and submit a request to us, we will verify your identity by asking for information about your relationship with us, such as email address on file.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.
You may authorize a natural person or a business entity registered with the California Secretary of State to act on your behalf to make a request to know or to delete your personal information.
To do so, you must (i) verify your identity to us and provide that authorized agent written permission to make such a request or (ii) provide the authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to the California Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465.
The authorized agent must include those authorizations in the verifiable consumer request.
Notice of Financial Incentive2
We will not discriminate against you in a manner prohibited by the CCPA because you exercise your CCPA rights. However, we may charge a different price or rate, or offer a different level or quality of goods or services, to the extent that doing so is reasonably related to the value of the applicable data. In addition, we may offer you financial incentives for the collection, Sale, retention, and use of your personal information as permitted by the CCPA; such offers may result in reasonably different prices, rates, or quality levels. The material aspects of any financial incentive will be explained and described in its program terms. For details of our current financial incentive program and its terms, including how to opt-in or withdraw your opt-in, program benefits, refer to our Rewards Terms and Conditions.
Please note that participating in incentive programs is entirely optional; participants affirmatively opt into the program, and can opt out of the program (i.e., terminate participation and forgo the ongoing incentives) by following the instructions in the program’s description and terms. We may add or change incentive programs and/or their terms by posting a notice on the program descriptions and terms linked to above, so check them regularly.

If we have knowledge that a child under 16 has submitted personal information in violation of this Policy, we will delete that information as soon as possible.

The parties agree to submit the dispute to binding arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) then in effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, the arbitrator shall apply the substantive laws of the Federal Judicial Circuit in which Sun Coast Sciences’ principal place of business is located, without regard to its conflict of laws rules.

If the parties do not agree on an arbitrator within ten (10) calendar days, a party may petition the AAA to appoint an arbitrator, who must satisfy the same experience requirement. In the event of a dispute, the arbitrator shall decide the enforceability and interpretation of this arbitration agreement in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). The parties also agree that the AAA’s rules governing Emergency Measures of Protection shall apply in lieu of seeking emergency injunctive relief from a court. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding, and no party shall have rights of appeal except for those provided in section 10 of the FAA. Each party shall bear its share of the fees paid for the arbitrator and the administration of the arbitration; however, the arbitrator shall have the power to order one party to pay all or any portion of such fees as part of a well-reasoned decision. The parties agree that the arbitrator shall have the authority to award attorneys’ fees only to the extent expressly authorized by statute or contract. The arbitrator shall have no authority to award punitive damages and each party hereby waives any right to seek or recover punitive damages with respect to any dispute resolved by arbitration. The parties agree to arbitrate solely on an individual basis, and this agreement does not permit class arbitration or any claims brought as a plaintiff or class member in any class or representative arbitration proceeding.

If any term or provision of this Section is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Section or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. If for any reason a dispute proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the parties hereby waive any right to a jury trial. This arbitration provision shall survive any cancellation or termination of your agreement to participate in any of our Programs.

As I mentioned, I did not discover this new research because I was “looking for it”.
In fact, it was my anti-cancer research that led me down this rabbit hole.
Cancer is what happens when cells mutate and multiply.
It’s a metabolic activity, so I knew that I needed to look into the cellular processes that drive tumor growth.
But what does this have to do with weight gain, low energy, and sluggish thinking?
As it turns out… everything! And for anyone dealing with any of the conditions I’ve mentioned, then…
Now pay close attention here – this is some of the same material that I’ve presented to rooms full of doctors, but I’m going to make it as easy as possible to understand. So here’s how it works:
Every time someone sits down to eat, they’re putting calories into their body.
Now if they only eat a little bit of food, most of those calories are immediately converted to glucose.
Then in the cells, the glucose mixes with oxygen – very similar to a car engine – and it’s burned for fuel.
But let’s say that someone eats way more calories than they need. Easy to do these days!
Well now, there’s a lot of extra glucose running through the bloodstream. And what happens is that cells sense this, and tell the body “hey, we don’t need all of this energy right now, so it’s time to get anabolistic.”
That basically means “it’s time to grow and store.” Anabolism is anything that combines small, simple molecules to build bigger, more complex molecules… like glycogen, free fatty acids, cholesterol, and triglycerides.
It’s an ingenious process, and it served our ancestors very well. They would often go for days between big meals, so a bit of stored sugar and fat helped them survive. But today, with all of the calories we eat, it’s no wonder that the average American has grown.
Until recently, that’s where the story ended. And that’s why every well-meaning doctor out there has said that the answer is “eat less, and exercise more.”
Cut the amount of calories we take in, and exercise to make the body burn more. Simple, right?
Not quite… because what we’ve discovered is that many Americans are stuck in an “anabolistic loop.” And if this is the case, then…
…and that means weight issues, fatigue and brain fog.
Even worse, this condition also means that cells are not getting “catabolistic” and burning all of that stored energy.
The opposite of this weight-gaining anabolistic loop is when cells get catabolistic – that’s when they break down complex molecules into simple ones, and create more energy.
And if the body can’t get catabolistic, it simply won’t burn any fat, and people feel incredibly sluggish.
Put another way: shifting cells from anabolistic, to catabolic is the key to healthy weight levels, more energy, and sharper thinking.
So this leads us to the million dollar question:
The answer, we’ve recently learned, is a chemical called AMPK.
AMPK exists in every cell, in every living animal… from simple yeasts, all the way up to humans.
Yes, it’s that important - it’s basically a “Metabolic Master Switch.”
When AMPK is “switched on” in cells, it tells them to get catabolic, break down fat, and burn energy.
If someone’s AMPK was permanently “switched on,” their body would be a fat-burning machine! And they’d have loads of energy… clean, smooth cellular energy that lasts all day.
They’d feel more youthful, more energetic, and their body would look like they LIVED in the gym.
But when AMPK is switched off, it tells cells to get anabolistic, store fat, and conserve energy.
The result? Weight problems, lethargy and brain fog…
…even if someone is exercising or dieting!
And what we now believe is that…
…a condition we call the Anabolistic Disorder.
When that happens, it becomes unbelievably difficult to get rid of excess weight!
It’s like trying to walk down the street with a 100-pound weight dragging behind.
Every step is a painful effort, and it feels like it’s impossible to reach the destination. It’s discouraging, and it just makes my patients want to give up!
When I made this discovery, the next question I asked was: what causes AMPK to shut off?
Well, it turns out that there are three AMPK Blockers, and fair warning, this is a little upsetting… but remember, there is a solution, so please do not get discouraged.
