We have been told our entire lives that “we are what we eat”. What if I told you that this is wrong? What if I told you we are not what we eat, but “we are what we digest and absorb”? Makes more sense, right?
Many of us think we are eating healthy. All the right foods, nothing deep fried, no fast food. I am not one of those people. I still enjoy fast food once in a while – nowhere near as often as I used to eat it – and greasy pizza is our Friday night dinner almost every week. But I’m taking steps in the right direction to get myself on a better track and Lifelong Vitality (LLV) is helping me with that!
Why do we need to take supplements??
Most of us do not get the nutrients we actually need on a daily basis. We live in a world of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s), contaminated soil, and imported foods that have had heavy chemical treatments. Did you know that your imported fruit and veggies can lose up to 48% of their nutrients by the time they get to you? Totally cool if you didn’t know that, I didn’t either until someone opened my eyes to it.
We also take supplements to boost our immune system, balance hormones, promote healthy cell communication, and to transport food nutrients to the right places in our bodies.
LLV assists absorption systems in our bodies and it is the foundation to nutrition. It also makes for a happy and healthy gut, which in turn, affects our whole body! Our brain, sinuses, skin, thyroid, colon, adrenals and joints are all directly related to our gut. This is why you may notice when you pig out on that Friday night pizza, you not only feel bloated, but you may experience brain fog, body stiffness, fatigue and possibly even breakouts on your skin.
Luckily for us, dōTERRA has come up with this amazeballs pack of daily supplements that can make even a pizza junkie like me feel a million times healthier in my life! I have been taking this trio for almost two months and I feel amazing!
* I get to sleep easier at night – with the help of my bedtime oils.
* I wake up easier in the morning and it takes me a quarter of the time that it used to to feel like a human and not a zombie.
* I have more energy throughout the day and I’m not crashing in the afternoon when my little babe takes a nap.
* Not to mention, I’m happier because I feel better!!
What are these supplements all about?
LLV comes in a three-pack consisting of MicroPlex VMZ, EO Mega, and Alpha CRS+. The full dose is two of each twice per day. That is four of each pill, for a grand total of 12 pills per day. Seems like a lot, especially since I normally could not swallow a pill if my life depended on it. But trust me, after week two or three, you don’t even think about it anymore and it has become a part of your routine, which your body will thank you for.
