Welcome The New Year With Oxylent–A Multivitamin Prize Pack –Two Winners!

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. Smile

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.

    1. You are perfect just the way you are! Its truly difficult to live under the pressure another's idea of who you are. I had to "train" myself to resist other people's idea of me and compose my own ideas of myself. Very hard indeed, but the "freedom" is well worth the work. I even had to exclude those who contributed negative energy from my life. It is a sad reality. I wish you peace of mind this Holiday season!

  11. It is hard especially on the blue days but I work out at least 10-45 min every day that I can. I work out to remain healthy, I have Addison Dicease and Thyroid issues so I have to take large doses of steroids so I can sit on my but and gain 5-10 lbs a week or I can shake off the blues, get up and dance :)

    Best,

  16. Honestly...I don't think "thin" is beautiful...I think healthy women are. I love curves on women...but healthy curves. I have those so I have never felt any pressure to be "thin". I would use the Oxylenta to motivate myself and use in conjunction with everything else I do to stay healthy.

  17. I focus on being strong and fit rather than skinny and thin! Oxylent will be a delicious and nutritious way to get my vitamins to keep my body strong and fit while working out at the gym too!

  18. Honestly, the only time I feel the pressure to be thin is when clothes shopping. The rest of the time it's actually pretty darn easy to be happy with myself. I don't love the weight and I wish I were smaller but... (Like MomLovesDeals) My boyfriend loves me with a bit extra. If I say that I'm fat he actually gets upset! Bless his heart, I love him dearly for that!

    With that being said, I would use the Oxylent to help maintain (and hopefully lose some of) my weight. I have achilles tendon problems on both feet that make it really hard to exercise since most things put strain on the ankles/tendons but I've been slowly working on a few exercises that don't and Oxylent would really help my body get what it needs without overeating!

  19. It's been two years since I've had my daughter, and I keep finding excuses to not work out, or not do this or that. I'm finally putting ALL of those aside and starting to eat healthy and clean, and walk everyday.

  20. I am okay with the way I look. I look at those models and people who look almost sick because they are so "thin" and it almost makes me sick. People are individuals and so are their weights. People should be at a healthy weight, not necessarily thin or fat. At the end of the day it's about health and not particularly "how" you look.

  21. I honestly just want to feel comfortable in my clothes...and NOT have to buy bigger ones! I'm okay with not being stick-thin, or even just thin, but I don't want to be fat. Argh. I would use this in my daily routine, and try to add a little bit of exercise every day. Slow but sure...emphasis on the 'sure' bit. :)

    Thanks!

  22. I used to be thin until age 35. Since turning post menopausal it is impossible to lose weight short of starving. I would like to be thin and don't understand how women my age do it unless they live on salads. In my life I lost a sister to breast cancer @ age 46, I have a brother and mother with mental illness and have had breast cancer 3 times myself. My oldest son served 3 tours in Iraq and my three other son's have been hospitalized for serious lung problems. None of this was caused by weight. In the big scheme of things the emphasis we put in this country on looks, youth, weight, celebrity is absolutely sickening. How many people live to serve others like Mother Teresa did?

  23. I've been up and down a lot over the years. And I've come to the conclusion that when I'm heavier, I'm not happy. So I go by my level of happiness. If I feel good, I feel like I look good!

    This would help keep my cravings at bay, so I can stay on track!
