What makes THRIVE Premium Lifestyle Mix Different?

If you’ve been to your local grocery store any time lately, you know that there are a lot of nutritional shakes on the market. But they’re not all created equal – not by a long shot. THRIVE Premium Lifestyle Mix is an ultra-premium, gluten-free shake containing a proprietary blend of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, plant extracts, probiotics and amino acids. It’s ultra-micronized, meaning that it’s broken into very, very fine particles to deliver maximum absorption into the body and contribute to lean muscle support, weight management or fitness support. Along with THRIVE Premium Lifestyle Capsules and THRIVE Premium Lifestyle Derma Fusion Technology (DFT), THRIVE Premium Lifestyle Mix is part of a simple, 1-2-3 regimen you complete before you even head out the door in the morning.

Give this shake recipe a try just 40 minutes after you take your THRIVE capsules.  Then step out into the crisp fall air and thrive all day long.

Yummy Apple Pie in a Glass Shake Recipe:

½ c. unsweetened almond milk

½ c. unsweetened applesauce

½ tsp. cinnamon

1 packet/1 scoop THRIVE Premium Lifestyle Mix – Apple Pie flavor

5-6 ice cubes.

Blend well, and enjoy!

Rallying Behind the Cause – Team Hoyt

Rallying Behind the Cause – Team Hoyt

Since 1989, The Hoyt Foundation has worked tirelessly to build the individual character, confidence and self-esteem of America’s disabled and physically challenged young people through inclusion in all facets of daily life.

Dick Hoyt Speaks at Le-Vel Conference

Dick Hoyt was the surprise headline speaker at an annual conference presented by Le-Vel earlier this year.  Le-Vel is a direct sales company that manufactures and distributes health and wellness products through a network of more than 600,000 independent Brand Promoters. An audience of more than 20,000 was moved by Dick’s story of his son’s perseverance in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. His call to action – “Yes, You Can” – deeply inspired the crowd. It was a powerful reminder that no matter the challenge, barriers can be broken, and the finish line is always worth the fight.

Supporting Team Hoyt

To support the Hoyts’ mission, Le-Vel employees and Brand Promoters participated in a month-long promotion in which 5% of the sale of each limited-edition Hoyt Derma Fusion Technology (DFTs) was earmarked for the Hoyt Foundation. In four weeks’ time, they were able to raise $240,000 for The Hoyt Foundation and Team Hoyt.
Le-Vel-Hoyt-DFT

Part of a three-step regimen called THRIVE, DFT is a time-released delivery system that infuses the skin, or derma, with a formula of ingredients designed to help consumers experience benefits including mental performance and appetite management. The limited-edition Hoyt DFT featured a “Yes, You Can” design and the Team Hoyt logo. It was a creative way to help spread the word about the great work of Team Hoyt, as we continue to work together to help people push beyond their barriers and achieve excellence in their lives.

“The Hoyts are proof that, with perseverance, belief and a strong support system, we can achieve incredible things,” Paul Gravette, Co-CEO, Co-Owner and Co-Founder of Le-Vel. “On behalf of our employees, independent Brand Promoters and their customers, we’re honored to support Team Hoyt and the Hoyt Foundation in their tireless efforts to help the disabled and physically challenged live their lives to the fullest.”

And the race continues!

“In August of 2015, I started my THRIVE Experience. Here is why I know I’ll never stop: Before finding THRIVE, I was dealing with some health challenges. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. My body lacked energy, I was drinking soda or coffee, but still felt I needed to nap. Man, I was a total grouch!

And because of this, at work, I definitely was not a good employee. I knew I needed to change! The woman I saw in the mirror every morning wasn’t someone I was proud of, or could say I even liked at all. Deep down, my heart longed to be the woman I really was, but I just didn’t know how to find her.

But then I found THRIVE! And guess what? It WORKS!”

“I love THRIVE! The simplicity of the program is something I love! I take my two capsules as soon as my eyes open. Then 20 minutes later, I make my delicious Thrive lifestyle mix and drink it, and then I put on my DFT. And that’s it! I love that I’m putting premium nutrition in my body within the first 20 minutes of my day!

No need to set alarms throughout the day. I don’t have to worry about measuring products because they’re already measured for me. In my opinion, not only does everybody need THRIVE; but EVERY BODY benefits from THRIVE. All I know is that you’re going to love how you feel!”

Brenden Lewer

“Before my THRIVE Experience, I thought it was normal to feel the way I did on a daily basis. In other words, I accepted feeling average. I am so glad I listened to my wife and had an open mind to jump in. Little did I know my body was lacking the nutrition it needed to realize these results. Paul Gravette has said, ‘Most people have no idea how good their body is designed to feel.’ He couldn’t be more right!”

Courtney Kirkwood

“Le-Vel has given me the opportunity to go from 80 hours a week to working from home and designing the life I choose! It’s truly incredible what giving your body the proper nutrition can do. Three simple steps have forever changed my life!”

Better sleep at night.
Calmed general body aches.
Better skin (who knew!?)
Making better choices for our health.
Being active again!
55 lbs. gone (so far) between the 2 of us.

Flexible. No pressure – ever.
Simple.
Happy and healthy – inside and out.

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

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.
