To Supplement or Not to Supplement?

Supplements. There are tons of options out there and it can get very confusing. Lots of products make empty promises, though. There are even some products out there that claim to be “the magic pill” or “this pill targets belly fat” or whatever false claims they want to imply to make a buck. People want the “magic pill”, a quick fix, but the truth is, that’s just not how it works. Company’s are willing to tell people anything that they want to hear to sell a product and make money… this is just wrong! AdvoCare has a team of experts that test products over and over again to ensure that what the products says it does, it ACTUALLY DOES! Taking the proper supplements can help aid you in weight loss, energy, focus, muscle gain, or whatever your goals may be. But there is no such thing as a “magic pill”. The reason I’m obsessed with AdvoCare supplements is because the products actually work! Now, I’m not sitting here saying that AdvoCare has the “magic pills”… remember, I just said there was no such thing… BUT, as far as taking supplements to help aid you towards your health and fitness goals, they REALLY work! Let’s discuss my favorite, go-to products that I use on the regular, how they work, and what benefits I get from them.

Spark. That’s a no-brainer. Spark has 21 Different vitamins and about the same amount of caffeine in one serving as a cup of coffee. It only has 45 calories per serving, which is great for people who are looking to cut calories. There are multiple different flavor options and the tastes of each: phenomenal. It gives you this burst of energy that last several hours WITHOUT jitters! That’s the biggest thing for me. I ten to have anxiety when a supplement makes me jittery. I have never been jittery after taking Spark. Ever. There’s been nights that I’ve been up all night and then all day, whether it be because my daughter didn’t sleep, or I was working, and I drink Spark and BOOM! Energy! Now, am I claiming that I can take Spark and stay up for a week without sleep and feel amazing?! ABSOLUTELY NOT! (and if that’s what you’re looking for, then we should have a heart to heart talk later, heehee) What I am saying, though, is that even if I don’t get a ton of sleep the night before, or I’m just lacking in the energy department for whatever reason, Spark is definitely my go-to product to help get me going. My favorite flavors are Blue Raspberry, Grape, Fruit Punch, and Pink Lemonade.

Rehydrate. AdvoCare Rehydrate helps the body stay hydrated during physical activity. It fuels your body with sequential carbohydrates for energy production and sustained muscle endurance, and helps prevent cramping during and after exercise. It replenishes vitamins and minerals that are lost in sweat when you workout. Now, I drink this in the morning, mixed together with my morning Spark. Why you ask? Well, (probably TMI, but) I sweat at night while I sleep. I am like a furnace. In the morning, my lips are super dry and I feel like I could drink 12,000 gallons of water, despite drinking water all day long. I’ve been like this my whole life. So, I drink some rehydrate to help myself out. Within 30 minutes or so after drinking it, I start to feel better. I don’t feel like my body is dry anymore. My favorite flavor is the new and improved Fruit Punch. Mix that together with a Blue Raspberry Spark… it’s like a kick to the taste buds, baby!

Catalyst. Holy cow! I cannot live without this product! I always have a backup on hand in case I run out. Seriously. Catalyst helps repair and protect muscle, and provides amino acids needed to maintain and promote lean body mass, endurance and strength. It helps retain muscle when used in combination with a healthy diet and exercise. It’s known as “the potato peeler”. It basically helps keep your muscle tone intact while the fat is being “peeled” away from your muscles during weight loss and/or muscle-building. It’s truly a star product. I take it every. Single. Day.

Thermoplus. It’s the fat burner of the group. I love this because not only does it help burn fat, it helps to increase your metabolism, and suppress your appetite, all while using natural ingredients and without jitters! I take it every morning before breakfast, like clock work. I truly feel that it has been a big help in my weight loss journey.

Leptilean. The appetite suppressant. It contains 2 different patent ingredients that help suppress your appetite, help you feel full faster during meals, and helps promote a healthy metabolism, all without using thermogenic ingredients. If you are someone who is sensitive to fat burners, due to the thermogenic response that they produce, this would be the product for you! I take this before meals and it really does help me not over-eat. It gives me the feeling of being full, faster.

The 24 Day Challenge. The famous challenge. Some people truly do not understand the 24 Day Challenge. It’s such a simple, effective product, if used properly. AdvoCare literally hands you the tools you need to succeed with this one. The 24 DC consists of a 10 day cleanse phase and then a 14 day max phase. With the challenge, you get an herbal cleanse (flushes the kidneys), fiber and probiotic (flushes your digestive system), fish oil, 2 boxes of spark, a box of meal replacement shakes, and MNS (Max. Nutritional Supplementation) of your choice. The cleanse phase is considered an “uneventful” cleanse, not because it doesn’t work, but because it is not one of those cleanses that you have to stay within 10 feet of a toilet the whole 10 days. It naturally helps clean your system without cramping or an, umm, embarrassing accident. The fiber drink contains 10 grams of dietary fiber, along with probiotics, and a herbal cleanse as well, so your entire body’s systems are cleansed of all the toxins and “sludge” you may have built up in your body. This gets your body prepared to intake the MNS products, which will help increase your metabolism, help you lose weight, and make sure your body has the proper nutrition it deserves. The MNS is supplements that pertain to your certain goal in mind. There is MNS 3 which is the core nutrients, energy, and appetite control, all combined equally. MNS C, which still has the core nutrients and energy supplementation, but has a max amount  of appetite control. MNS E is like C, but has less appetite control and max energy.
