The burning question: What is in Le-Vel THRIVE?

You may have heard the buzz about THRIVE, a simple, three-step regimen designed to help people of all ages recapture their vitality and live happier, healthier lives.  In your discovery, you might be wondering…

What is in Le-Vel THRIVE?

Le-Vel Thrive Lifestyle Mix, Lifestyle Capsules and DFT products are based on a premium-grade formula of vitamins, minerals, plant extracts, antioxidants, enzymes, probiotics and amino acids.

Le-Vel sources only the highest-grade ingredients for THRIVE.  The bioavailability of Le-Vel ingredients is also higher than industry norms.

Why is bioavailability important?

Well, in a nutshell, bioavailability is how much of an ingredient your body can absorb. The higher the bioavailability of the ingredient, the more your body benefits from that ingredient. If you consume a product with ingredients that are of low bioavailability, they’ll pass right through your system without being absorbed.

Ingredient Delivery Mechanisms for THRIVE

Also critical is the delivery mechanism of the ingredients. Years of research and testing have led us to incorporate the most advanced delivery mechanisms possible. Take, for example, THRIVE Derma Fusion Technology (DFT) products, which infuse the skin, or derma, with Le-Vel’s advanced nutritional formulas. When applied in the morning, as recommended, DFT allows you to enjoy the benefits of THRIVE all day long.  Another example is Le-Vel’s Sequential Gel Technology line, which provides maximum absorption as it travels from the mouth to the stomach and intestines.

Best of all, THRIVE has been designed with absolute simplicity in mind. So even though there are a lot of complex processes taking place in the body when you make THRIVE a part of your morning routine, it couldn’t be easier to complete this three-step process. You’ve taken care of your health before you even head out the door each day. You don’t have to do anything more than enjoy the benefits. Life is hard enough, but taking care of yourself shouldn’t be.

Stress: Slay the Silent Villian

Stress: Slay the Silent Villian

“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” — Mohandas Gandhi

You know the obvious signs of stress: low energy, mild headaches, general aches and discomforts, lack of sound sleep, and a lowered immune system. But for millions, stress is so fundamental to who we are that we hardly notice it’s there anymore. This undesired trespasser takes up permanent residence in our brains and, ultimately, our bodies. It makes itself known only when it negatively impacts your well-being. By then, its impact can affect your overall quality of life.

Here are some signs that stress could be affecting you without your knowledge:

You’re becoming more forgetful.

A missed deadline here, a forgotten meeting there. Leaving home without your wallet, or spacing out on your child’s after-school appointment. It’s happened to all of us. But if these instances are starting to occur more often, you could be dealing with an overload. Research published in the Journal of Neuroscience indicated that stressful events can interact with specific genes in the brain and shrink the size of the hippocampus. And that can affect your ability to take in and retain new information.

The solution: Exercise, meditation, adequate sleep and time with friends all help to combat the effects of stress.

Your stomach is in knots.

What happens in your brain can have an effect on your digestion. When your brain perceives a threat, you go into the fight-or-flight response, and all of the body’s resources are redirected to address that perceived threat. A report issued by the University of Maryland Medical Center states: “The brain and intestines are closely related. They are controlled by many of the same hormones and parts of the nervous system. Some research suggests that the gut itself has features of a primitive brain.” Stress can either slow down or speed up your digestive process. And stressing about your digestion simply makes the problem worse.

The solution: Eat smaller portions, avoid heavy meals with high fat content, drink plenty of water and be sure to incorporate fiber-rich foods in your diet.

stress free

You just hurt.

Mild aches and discomforts can occur when your body is under stress. You might have just figured that general joint and muscle discomfort were part of getting older. But tress could be at the root of your problems. Does your jaw feel sore when you chew food? You may not even be aware that you’re grinding your teeth while you sleep. Is your back is bothering you more than ever? Consider how much time you spend sitting each day, between your commute, a desk job and evening activities. Many of us don’t even realize how tense our muscles are when we’re sitting for hours on end.

The solution: For jaw discomfort, see your dentist for an exam. You might need a night guard to ward off further tooth deterioration caused by grinding. For general back aches or discomforts, regular standing and stretching breaks, a lumbar pillow, exercise and an ergonomic assessment — if it’s available to you at work — are all smart ways to combat soreness.

tired

You’re always tired.

“When we do not sleep long or well enough, our bodies do not get the full benefits of sleep, such as muscle repair and memory consolidation,” says the American Psychological Association. “Sleep is so crucial that even a slight lack of restful sleep or poor sleep can affect memory, judgment and mood.” Stress doesn’t just prevent you from sleeping soundly at night. The fact is that, even if you’re “asleep” for eight hours, if you’re stressed, the quality of your sleep is impacted. You might not have a restful night’s sleep or wake up not feeling fully rested – and not even understand why you feel so tired.

The solution: A good workout at least two hours before bedtime can help you burn off the stresses of your day. The National Sleep Foundation recommends a two-hour “buffer zone” before bedtime, during which all work-related activities are shut down. No phone calls – not even to friends or family, as conversation activates the brain. Some light reading, meditation and/or white noise will help prep the mind and body for a good night’s sleep.

Overcoming stress is really about reclaiming your life, and recapturing the joy and vitality that the daily grind may have stolen from you. Life is complicated enough, so taking care of yourself should be simple. Starting each day on the right foot sets the tone for your day. The THRIVE suite of products was designed just for that purpose. More than 4 million THRIVE customers throughout the globe are enjoying all-day benefits including joint support, digestive support, mood support and more restful sleep.

What Makes the Le-Vel Culture Different?

The Beginning

When we launched Le-Vel four years ago, we knew were starting something special. We invested in the absolute best ingredients available so we could give people around the world a fun and simple way to completely transform their health. But we had no idea that Le-Vel Brands would start a wild movement of loyal fans!

Le-Vel Brands Going Viral

Looking back, maybe we should have seen it coming. When you’re Thrivin,’ you want to shout it from the rooftops – especially if you’ve been spending the last several months or even years in a mental fog, dragging yourself to work each day, wondering if you’d ever feel better.

Check out our Facebook page, and you’ll read story after story written by people of all ages, from college students to retirees.  People who were sick and tired of feeling sick and tired before they tried the 8-Week THRIVE experience and woke up to a life they never knew they could have – a life filled with energy, joy and passion. Those Le-Vel Brands reviews generated a massive wave of the enthusiasm that’s sweeping the globe.

Under each one of those incredible testimonials and Le-Vel reviews, you’ll also see hundreds of virtual high-fives from Le-Vel Brand Promoters and customers all around the globe. Some people might be quick to say technology drives people apart, but in the Le-Vel culture, it brings people together.

In just four years’ time, we’ve grown from a company with great products nobody had heard of to an army of 600,000 world-changing, uber-passionate Brand Promoters – and more than 4 million customers. To have that kind of mind-blowing growth, you can’t just have good products; you have to have people who use those products and love them.

Le-Vel Brands Community

A Community of Friends Supporting Each Other

Through their stories and their photos, we realize all of us are on the same journey. Who doesn’t just want to feel better, right? All of those virtual “woots” are an awesome reminder than none of us are alone. What could be better than turning your life around, working up the courage to share your story and your photos in a public forum, and then having friends – including friends you’ve never even met, telling you “Way to go! You’re amazing, and you’re inspiring!”

It’s not hard to understand, then, why our culture is Thrivin’. People try our products, they feel better than ever, and they’re telling everyone they know – and even some they don’t know. They want everyone to feel as fabulous as they do. Their passion is what drives our success. Our awesome Brand Promoters and customers are leading a global health and wellness movement, and they’ve only just gotten started. Le-Vel isn’t about selling products; it’s about sharing passion and helping others. The passion our Brand Promoters have for this company and, quite simply, life, is what attracts others to them.

We may be a virtual company – and the first virtual company in the direct selling industry – but we have a community like no other. People may come to Le-Vel for the products, but they stay for the inspiration, the encouragement and the opportunity for something better. This is a mission – and we’ve only just gotten started!

Clear the Mind, Heal the Body: The Benefits of Meditation

Clear the Mind, Heal the Body: The Benefits of Meditation

Why Meditate?

Meditation is more than just a hot trend. Researchers have discovered extensive and measurable health benefits from this ancient, yet misunderstood practice. And it’s not hard to understand why. All of us are running from one fire to another, it seems. Our brains are always in overdrive. When you stop to think about it, the brain is really the hardest-working organ in the body, and it deserves a rest from time to time.

There’s an intimidation factor surrounding meditation, but it’s much easier than you think. You don’t have to join a particular religion, twist yourself into a pretzel, chant or sit still with a clear mind for hours on end to reap the benefits. Even 10 minutes a day can make a difference in your life. This is about more than just relaxing; you have the power to change the way your brain processes information – and the effects can be profound.

Benefits of Meditation

Emotional

Meditation helps regulate your mood, in part because it helps lower your emotional response. The things that used to rattle you may now simply wash over you. A study by the University of Wisconsin-Madison discovered that meditation actually triggers a reduction in the gray matter of the brain that’s associated with a decrease in mood. Harvard University neuroscientists, meanwhile, found an increase in the gray matter associated with sense of self and perspective. With better perspective comes greater compassion and empathy. Meditation largely focuses on gratitude, which helps keeps us grounded and, quite simply, real.

Social

When you have greater compassion for others, you feel less lonely in this world and more inclined to make connections with others. Your emotional intelligence – your capacity to be self-aware, control and express your emotions and handle interpersonal relationships appropriately — increases. According to MentalHealthDaily.com, “there is evidence that meditation has the potential to change aspects of your potential – likely for the better.” Researchers suggest that meditators “accept a greater sense of responsibility, are more likely to maintain authenticity, compassion, and accept themselves. Frequent mindfulness meditation is associated with increases in personality traits of openness and extroversion.”

Benefits of Meditation

Physical

Meditation has been linked to increased immunity and the reduction of general aches and discomforts. It’s also been credited with reducing stress, bone density support, promoting fat loss, clearer skin, and better regulation of blood sugar levels.

Cognitive

Meditation increases the brain’s capacity for self-control, focus and attention, along with memory and creativity. As you age, the area of your brain that manages memory and decision-making shrinks – but meditation may be able to prevent that shrinkage. At the same time, your meditation practice is building gray matter in key areas of your brain, which means you’re increasing your brain’s capacity. You’re not getting older; you’re getting smarter!

With meditation, what you’re really doing is clearing the clutter from your brain and leaving behind calm and clarity. And, given our crazy lives, couldn’t we all use a little less clutter?

Getting Started with Meditation

So if all of that evidence is convincing enough for you, how do you get started?

First, find a quiet spot – anyplace where you won’t be disturbed for at least 10 minutes. Find a seat either on the floor or in a chair, if you prefer. Set a timer, if you want. Then close your eyes, and begin to focus on your breath, inhaling and exhaling through the nose. As the day’s intrusive thoughts enter your mind, acknowledge them as an observer, but don’t engage. Let them come and go as you continue to focus on your breath. Aim to perform this practice every day. Over time, you’ll notice that it gets easier.

And if you prefer not to sit in a room, feel free to take your meditation outside. You might even decide to take your meditation to go, as you take a leisurely walk.

There aren’t any hard and fast rules here. The key is just to get started. One last tip: Your meditation practice is your time – honor yourself by not letting anything interrupt this investment in your health.

Mental clarity can make a dramatic difference in your quality of life. If you’d like additional support in this area, Le-Vel can help you reach your goals with products like THRIVE Activate, a premium activated beverage that delivers premium nutrition along with such benefits as energy, mental clarity and performance.

Le-Vel THRIVE Reviews From Le-Vel Brand Promoters: Real People Tell Their Thrivin’ Stories

Thrivers are taking to Facebook in record numbers to share their amazing stories of transformation and real life Le-Vel THRIVE reviews. While it’s hard to pick only a few, here’s a sampling of some of the independent Le-Vel Brand Promoters who in recent weeks have been inspiring hundreds and even thousands of people throughout the globe with their remarkable success using THRIVE!

Jon Pearlman

“I was so blown away with the natural energy I felt coursing through my body that I remember yelling at my wife, ‘There is no flipping way these products can work so well!’ I was feeling so giddy that I wanted to take off from work and run on our boardwalk and work out at the gym. I just needed to be outside and active. It was so incredible!”

“Since I became a Thriver, I run faster, I lift heavier, and I work harder. I spend quality time with my kids instead of drinking a pot of coffee and counting the hours until bedtime. No longer do I dread those days my husband leaves for work for 48 hours and I’m “Mom on Duty,” and the stress that comes with my job in the ER is left at the ER. I’m a happier wife, a more attentive mom, a more focused nurse and student, and there’s still plenty left of me for me! The best part is that this experience just keeps getting better and better. Every day, I feel like another piece of the puzzle just snapped into place.

One month of THRIVE isn’t enough; eight weeks isn’t enough. This journey is worthy of a complete lifestyle change, and I’m so fortunate to have the ability to not only experience it for myself, but also share it with my friends and family.”

Lisa Windsor

“I agreed to 30 days, and 30 days later, I’m feeling great! I can’t express how much I LOVE the simplicity of 1,2,3. Wake up, and 20 minutes later, you are done. LOVE it! THRIVE works… I wake up happy and look forward to my day. I have more patience with my children. I’ve got tons more energy, which has made my workouts amazing. I lost a few pounds (went down a pants size). Most important, I am feeling like myself again.”

Sharon Wheaton

“When I look back over the last four months, what has been the most valuable of all is the mental and emotional support that I have received from taking THRIVE. I have experienced more personal growth in the last four months than in my entire life. There has been such a shift in terms of my mindset that I didn’t even know existed. My goals are different. My thoughts are different. My belief in myself and my ability to accomplish the things I set out to do are different. I AM confident that I will reach my intended destination.

Please know that if someone is sharing with you about THRIVE, it’s not because they are merely trying to sell you something; it’s because they sincerely want to help you.”

“Since starting my THRIVE Experience eight months ago, I’m a better wife and mom, I’ve lost a significant amount of weight to date, THRIVE has given me my “MOJO” back. Because of THRIVE, I have TONS of energy, my digestive system is back on track, I don’t have cravings for sugar or caffeine, I sleep soundly every night, I wake at 4:30 a.m. like clockwork without an alarm, work out seven days a week, twice a day. My skin, hair and nails are healthier than they’ve ever been. I can’t see myself going a day without it. All I know is that Le-Vel has given me the opportunity to just FEEL AMAZING everyday. My general aches/discomforts have calmed, and I get to share this product with my friends and family.

My husband, who was also a skeptic, started THRIVE after I casually placed his capsule on the nightstand with a bottle of water. He awoke the next morning and took them without a word. Twenty minutes after getting out the shower, he drank his mix and I slapped on his DFT, and the rest is history.”
