THRIVE Mix Can Help You Stay on Track This Summer

THRIVE Mix Can Help You Stay on Track This Summer

Le-Vel’s THRIVE Mix offers you a convenient, yet nutritionally superior option when you need to grab and go this summer. It’s easy to drink before you head out the door, but if you’re really short on time, throw a packet of THRIVE Mix in your bag, along with a water bottle and shaker container, and a rich and incredibly satisfying breakfast, lunch or snack is ready when you are. You can start your day knowing that you’re giving your body exactly what it needs.

Now that we’re into the summer months, your schedule may be busier than ever between work and family obligations. When life gets hectic, that’s precisely the time when people tend to fall back on poor nutritional choices: the fast food drive-through, the donut in the conference room, the snack packs you buy for the kids – that’s where THRIVE Mix comes in.

THRIVE Mix Can Help Fill Nutritional Gaps

Take one look at the health food aisle of your local grocery or natural foods store, and it’s obvious: The market for nutritional shakes is huge. How are you supposed to choose? Your guess is as good as ours. All too often, shoppers rely on guesswork, or maybe taste, if they’re lucky enough to try a sample first. While taste is certainly important, it’s the ingredients you should be eyeing closely – both the variety and the quality. As they say, the devil’s in the details. Some of these products take shortcuts on quality to offer you a lower price. If you want a product that’s going to take your quality of life to the next level, give you more energy and fuel your body throughout the day, you need premium ingredients, without compromises or shortcuts.  You need THRIVE Mix.

The benefits of THRIVE Mix – including weight management and lean muscle support – last throughout your day. And, with the new THRIVE Mix sampler pack, you can even get all of your favorite flavors in one box: Vanilla, Chocolate, Creamy Strawberry and Apple Pie.

It is Easy to Take On the Go

And, if you’re going on the road this summer, you don’t have to ditch your healthy habits. The beauty of THRIVE Mix is that it is portable and travels easily, so you can keep your commitment to good health wherever life takes you.

thrive-mix-to-go

At Le-Vel, we believe that when it comes to your health, simplicity is key if you’re going to make permanent lifestyle changes. That’s why THRIVE is based on three simple steps that can be completed before you head out the door in the morning. You don’t have to think about it; all you have to do is get ready to reap the benefits.

History of Le-Vel THRIVE

When they launched Le-Vel in 2012, our company founders Jason Camper and Paul Gravette knew what it took to create the best products. They’d seen the good, the bad and the ugly among nutritional supplements. So, they committed themselves to sourcing the most superior ingredients available on the planet – ingredients with a higher bioavailability for maximum absorption. And, with the company’s virtual, cloud-based infrastructure, they’re able to deliver on that pledge.

THRIVE Mix represents the best of the best when it comes to nutritional shakes. It’s an ultra-micronized formula based on plant extracts, antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and probiotics. Consume it first thing in the morning, along with THRIVE Premium Lifestyle Capsules and THRIVE Derma Fusion Technology, and you’re starting your day on the strongest possible footing.

Nootropics: What are They, and How do They Work?

Nootropics: What are They, and How do They Work?

Nootropics make your brain a more efficient machine. Your brain changes every time you have a new thought or create a new memory. The more you learn, the fitter your brain becomes.

Many of us are frazzled, distracted and unable to concentrate. When we’re pulled in so many directions, it’s difficult if not impossible to perform at a premium level. Our brains aren’t open to learning. Instead, we’re just surviving – meeting the status quo.

When your brain gets the nutrition it needs, it functions better. During an average day, our brains are on overload, and it can be difficult to concentrate, or take in and process information.

pexels-photo-212286

History of nootropics

Dr. Corneliu Giurgea developed the first nootropic, called piracetam, in 1964 to treat motion sickness. He soon found that piracetam could impact the brain’s capabilities in a positive way. He later coined the term “nootropics,” a Greek combination of the terms “nous” (mind) and “trepein” (bend). Nootropics, he believed, could “bend the mind.” And that’s exactly what they do. They modulate the cognitive blueprint.

Expanding the brain’s capabilities 

It’s vital to take care of your mental and physical health. With that in mind, Le-Vel developed a premium nootropic, Expand. One of our most exciting product launches to date, Expand is a cognitive-supporting supplement. It supports improved concentration and focus, optimizing your ability to learn.

Expand reinforces the brain’s inherent capabilities — effectively and naturally. Like all Le-Vel products, Expand contains premium-grade ingredients. Its superior formula and delivery system delivers maximum results. It’s easy-to-use and you can carry it with you on the go.

expand-nootropic

Take two Expand capsules a day, preferably with a meal.  Stay consistent with it as results are achieved with consistent daily supplementation.

Nootropics represent the next frontier of health and wellness. When you’re taking care of your mental and physical health, you can live life on all cylinders – and what’s better than that?

It’s Time to Get Smart About Weight Management

It’s Time to Get Smart About Weight Management

At Le-Vel, we’re all about taking smart steps toward better health. That means no crash diets, fasts or subsisting on one food only. Our focus is on the long term.

Long term health means many things, but one of the big parts is maintaining a healthy weight.

Thrivers promote healthy habits you can stick with for a lifetime like these 3 Simple Steps. Your health and weight-management goals don’t have to consume your day.  Le-Vel recently came out with a new product, DFT Duo, that helps by supporting lipid metabolism and providing all-day weight management and appetite support.

Here are some tips to keep in mind as you pursue a healthy lifestyle:

Be specific, but take it step by step.

First, set a measurable goal, then break it into smaller, more short-term goals. Just saying that you’re going to lose inches is too vague and non-committal.

Once you’ve established a specific number in mind (for example, 4 inches), don’t fixate on the end number. Saying you’re going to lose 4 inches can make you feel like you’re standing at the bottom of a very tall ladder.

Instead, shift your focus to smaller, more digestible steps. If you’re taking a healthy approach, you’ll lose inches over time. Celebrate those accomplishments. Go to the movies with a friend, enjoy an afternoon to yourself, go on a hike, or, to celebrate your ultimate goal and size, buy a new pair of jeans.

Just move.

The experts debate on how much exercise is crucial. But the bottom line is this: Just move. Every day. Aim for 30 minutes or more.

Your activity doesn’t have to hurt or leave you exhausted. If you haven’t exercised in quite a while, walking can be your best bet to get started again.

Make your workout fun! Bring along some good music, maybe a good friend and you might even forget you’re exercising for a while. The best exercises are ones you enjoy and that can elevate your heart rate for a sustained period.

weight-management-tips

Allow yourself some wiggle room.

Use the “80/20” approach – making healthy choices 80 percent of the time, and allowing some wiggle room (within reason) during the remaining 20 percent.

If you’re trying to cut back, you may wish to follow a 90/10 approach, then shift into 80/20 when you’re maintaining. Whichever percentage you choose, we’re talking about a single-scoop ice cream cone versus a pint of ice cream, or a piece of pizza on a plate loaded with vegetables versus three pieces of a meat-laden pie.

Snack (really).

Aim for 200 calories or less. Most snackers eat a snack in the mid-morning and late-afternoon hours.

Try unsalted raw almonds, an apple with tablespoon of almond butter or chopped veggies with a bit of hummus.

Snacks help prevent you from overeating later. If you’re not hungry, you don’t have to have a snack! It’s nice to know it’s an option if you need it, though.

Buy some snack-sized baggies, which help you portion everything out in the appropriate serving sizes. Incorporate fiber and/or small amounts of fat in your snack choices. You’ll stay fuller longer.

Never show up empty-handed.

No matter where your day is taking you, it’s a good idea to have a couple of snacks within your reach. When you’re prepared, you’ll never have to hit the vending machine out of desperation.

weight-management-tips

Write it down.

A lot of us consume mindless calories while we’re chatting on the phone, watching TV or driving in the car. Keeping track of what you eat keeps you honest – and it may surprise you.

Sleep.

The National Sleep Foundation reported in 2016 that one-third of American adults sleep less than seven hours per night. Poor sleep can interfere with the hormone that regulates appetite, so get your Z’s!

Eat breakfast.

Breakfast-eaters tend to eat less over the course of the day. It stands to reason that if you’re not ravenous, you won’t overeat, right?

Breakfast doesn’t have to be complicated, either. With Thrive Premium Lifestyle Shake, feeding your body the nutrition it craves takes only minutes in the morning.

thrive-mix-shake

Above all, keep it simple.

Finish Thrive’s simple three-step regimen (Thrive Premium Lifestyle Capsules, Premium Lifestyle Shake and Premium Lifestyle DFT) before you leave the house in the morning, and you’re done for the day!

And now with DFT DUO–step 3 for those focused more on weight and appetite management–you have a powerful, easy-to-use tool for reaching your nutritional and weight management goals.

O, Canada! – Le-Vel’s Toronto Lifestyle Getaway

O, Canada! – Le-Vel’s Toronto Lifestyle Getaway

We’re home from our incredible Toronto Lifestyle Getaway. It was absolutely amazing!

On Friday evening, June 23, we threw a bash for Thrivers at the Fairmont Royal York. It wasn’t a black-tie affair. Instead, we told attendees to wear their favorite thrift-shop finds. They showed up in their bargain-basement favorites and pulled out all the stops with their creativity. Check out our accompanying photos for proof. We shared a lot of laughs that night! Co-CEO Paul Gravette and COO Drew Hoffman hosted the party. They made two huge announcements from stage, and the crowd went crazy when they heard the news!

  • First, we’re headed to Puerto Vallarta in October for our next Lifestyle Getaway destination.
  • Second, we’re re-releasing DFT DUO on Monday, July 3, 2017.

20170623_192134

Paul and Drew also welcomed five dedicated leaders to the stage. These top-performing Brand Promoters shared how they’re using DFT DUO to take their businesses to the next level. It was a super-charged night of inspiration and excitement. As you’ve heard, DFT DUO is our most successful product launch to date. It’s creating so much momentum in the field. Customers are already getting their health and their lives on track with this game-changing product.

Next, we held our spectacular VIP event at the Arcadian Court, one of Toronto’s oldest ballrooms. Arcadian Court is an Art Deco-style building with 360-degree city views. During the event, we recognized our top-performing Promoters during the qualifying months. Here’s a cool fact: More than 50 percent of the VIP dinner attendees in Toronto were first-time qualifiers. Many more high-quality Brand Promoters are moving up the ranks at Le-Vel, and that’s incredibly exciting for our future!

20170624_194956

Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary this year, and we were right in the center of the festivities. From start to finish, Toronto threw us one big party! Thrivers took in everything Toronto has to offer during those action-packed four days. They visited Niagara Falls, went to a Toronto Blue Jays game, dined at world-class restaurants and soaked up the cultural diversity of Canada’s largest city.

lifestyle-getaway-toronto-on

Le-Vel Lifestyle Getaways give you the priceless opportunity to gather with your extended family of Thrivers. We hope you enjoyed your visit to Toronto as much as we did. These memories will last a lifetime, and we’re honored to have shared them with you. Couldn’t join us for this trip? Then it’s time to make plans for Puerto Vallarta. Qualify for the trip in June, July and/or August. We can’t wait to see you there!

Your Morning Routine is the Key to Success

Your Morning Routine is the Key to Success

The morning hours are undoubtedly the most critical time of the day. Why? You’re less likely to be interrupted. During the wee hours of the morning, you set tone for your day. Whether you use the time for self-care or you’re just getting a jumpstart on your task list, your morning routine determines your mindset.

There’s no right routine that works for everyone. You’ll determine yours based on what matters to you. But, to help inspire you, here are a few habits you might consider making your own:

Jot down tasks the night before. Many of us wander through the morning unfocused, waiting for the day to happen to us. Writing down your to-do list the night before starts your day with purpose. You might even sleep better, too!

pexels-photo-359989

Wake up earlier. Yes, this one’s tough. But trust us – you won’t regret it. How many of us wish we had more hours in the day? Well, this is your chance to gain a few back. The payoff is huge: The early morning hours are yours alone. You’re in full control – nobody needs you for anything.

When you make the Thrive Experience from Le-Vel part of your morning, three simple steps become part of your a.m. routine to help you begin with energy and the nutrition you need to conquer whatever lies ahead.  The simplicity of doing those three steps: Thrive capsules, Thrive Mix and Thrive Premium Lifestyle DFT, makes it easy to have a healthy start.

Exercise. Study after study has proven the benefits of an early morning workout. Aside from the obvious cardiovascular benefits, exercise lowers stress, increases energy levels and focus, and leads to better sleep. Any type of movement in the brief time after waking is helpful, whether that is doing a yoga class or hitting the racquetball court with a friend.  You might also notice that you can do some of your best thinking while exercising.

‘Eat that Frog.’ What’s the biggest task on your list – the one you don’t want to tackle? Take it on first, before anything else. That’s the strategy author Brian Tracy recommends in his game-changing book, Eat That Frog! 21 Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time. When your feet hit the floor in the morning, take action immediately. Can you imagine how great it will feel to get your hardest task out of the way before breakfast?

Nutrition is key. At Le-Vel, we believe that starting your day on the right foot can make all the difference. We also believe that taking care of yourself shouldn’t be complicated. That’s why the Thrive Experience was designed to deliver you optimal nutrition in three easy steps. Complete them in the morning as recommended, and you’re done. Premium-grade ingredients deliver all-day benefits like mental clarity, appetite management and immune support.THRIVE-Experience-Products_COMP_RGB_HR
Get inspired. Listen to or read from your favorite motivational source. This can be as simple as reading an inspiring quote and considering how it applies to your own life. Many entrepreneurs listen to motivational leaders first thing in the morning or during drive time.  Starting the day with motivation makes sure your mind is in the right place as you begin your daily tasks.

Do you have advice for how to start each day right?  Tell us about your morning routine in the comments.
