**A special thanks to Le-Vel for sponsoring this post. All verbiage, images, and opinions in my Thrive W review are my own.
Recently I was contacted by Le-Vel to try their products and do a blog post about it. I needed to know more about their products so they sent me their product information and the ingredients. Being very cautious about what I eat and any chemicals that may cause me migraines I wanted to be sure that the ingredients in the product didn’t contain aspartame or artificial sweeteners. After reviewing the product information and researching into it very carefully, I agreed to give it a try.
I was pleasantly surprised at what I experienced while using Le-Vel. I had been feeling extremely sluggish these past few months. It was most noticeable when the season changed. In fact, while training for the NYC marathon I was concerned that I wasn’t going to have the energy to maintain the training I needed. I did successfully complete the marathon and was on a high for a few days afterwards; but then life got busy again and the high wore off and I was feeling the drag in my step again. I had been sitting on this email to try the Le-Vel products and decided to finally go for it. I figured what did I have to lose, I only had energy to gain! Maybe a little extra, but in the end that would be ok!
After reading the directions carefully, I started the program on a Tuesday morning. I woke up, and took one of the Le-Vel Thrive capsules with an 8 oz bottle of water. It is important to take the capsule on an empty stomach to allow your body to absorb all of the nutrients. I usually have a cup of tea in the morning, either green tea or black tea. But I felt good that I was already consuming 8 ounces of water at the start of my day.
While I got myself and the kids ready for school, it allowed me time for the capsules to work and 40 minutes later I made my vanilla flavored shake. I used 8 ounces of almond milk with a little ice in a blender with the Thrive Lifestyle Mix. It was a very delicious, nutrient-dense shake. I chose to use this shake as a meal replacement that day to see if it would be enough to satiate me through lunch.
After my shake, I put the Thrive DFT (Derma Fusion Technology) patch on a lean muscle. I placed it on my bicep. It is advised to put it on a different area of your body each day. Wearing the patch allows the Lifestyle blend to infuse through your skin.
When I first started to use these products I was nervous that I would get a headache or feel very jittery. But I felt fine. I did notice that my energy level was a little higher, even without having had my tea in the morning. While having a busy day, I didn’t feel fatigued in the afternoon. I was able to sustain my level of energy throughout the day and I didn’t have any difficulty falling asleep or sleeping while using the product.
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to try this product by Le-Vel. I felt an increase in my mental clarity and focus, as well as my energy levels.
