Weight is such a personal issue for women. We are bombarded with images of super skinny models and live under the chastisement of BMI weight charts. Charts, I firmly believe, do not necessarily reflect the unique individualism of each person. It has been two years since my last child, I’ve still not met my goal weight. I do battle with this concept often. A timeframe in the midst of a never-ending task list, is a good amount of pressure and stress on my body image.
So my goal is to feel and be healthy. It’s so important to know that thin does not translate into health. True health begins, not with a gym membership, but with quality food intake. Quality food is, unfortunately, not prevalent in our society. We are inundated with processed food. Food shopping has become a sad event as shelf, after shelf is lined with food that presents more of a dilemma than healthy nutrition. So much that I’ve decided, I need to learn to garden! But that is another topic for another post.
In order to support nourishment intake, many take a multivitamin of some kind. With many multivitamins on the market, it’s extremely vital to understand that supplements of varying kinds are not created equal. As matter of fact, some vitamins should be avoided outright. Many vitamins are synthetic isolates, which are partial vitamins combined with other chemicals. Needless to say, it is NOT a good thing. Your body absorbs a very small percentage of synthetic isolates. You should avoid synthetic nutrients and additives.
Here is where Oxylent, an effervescent, multivitamin drink shines. Oxylent is a high quality multivitamin that is made with Albion Minerals. Albion is the only manufacturer that is able to guarantee the absorption of their minerals, which is patented and backed by 180 studies. Additionally, the effervescent delivery system is better absorbed than pills because no digestion is needed!
If one of your goals in the new year is to lose weight, Oxylent is the perfect compliment to your weight loss regimen.
“Research increasingly shows that hunger is influenced not simply by the amount of calories consumed but by nutrient intake. Studies have linked adequate intake in vitamins and minerals to both decreased experiences of hunger during weight reduction programs and to lower body weight in general, suggesting that intake is a key factor in successful weight loss.
Appetite and hunger are often increased during weight loss due to variations in hormones such as leptin, insulin, and cortisol, which play key roles in regulating appetite. Since vitamins and minerals are required in the synthesis of these hormones, inadequate nutrient intake can interfere with signaling pathways and result in increased cravings and overeating. Ensuring adequate vitamin and mineral intake can help regulate appetite and decrease cravings and overeating.” – Oxylent
Electrolytes are certain minerals that are found in bodily fluids. They are vital to conduct the electrical charges that power our bodies. During sustained exercise, water alone is not enough to maintain electrolyte homeostasis. Oxylent provides 50mg of Sodium, 225mg of Potassium and more to support the electrolyte homeostasis during your weight loss program. Oxylent is a much better alternative than the mainstream sports drink which typically contains artificial sweeteners, colors and additives.
Oxylent is sugar-free, sweetened with Stevia only.
I truly enjoy Oxylent. It is fizzy like soda and comes in a variety of fruity flavors. Their new, sugar-free formula does not taste much different than their previous formula, which was delicious! It’s so easy to take take these vitamins and they are yummy enough to remember to take daily. I get a immediate “boost” from it.
Here’s a picture of my very fancy cup of Oxylent! I take the term recycle literally so this “cup” is actually a jar that contained a substance of some sort at one point of its existence. In any event, you can add ice for a refreshing beverage alongside your meal.
