My Advo Arsenal

If I’m being completely honest with you, friends, I have to tell you that I need help.  I need help eating right.  I need help sleeping at night.  I need help to not feel like a slug.

This personal struggle is exactly what led me to become an Advisor with AdvoCare International

Please note:  I have zero interest in forcing products on people who have zero interest in them, but for the people who are curious about the products I use on a regular basis, here they

I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends…

*The Motivator: Spark

Spark. The one and only. This delicious beverage clears me of my low energy funks and mental fogs on a daily basis.  I love my morning coffee, but Spark puts some extra pep in my step after a particularly restless night or if my motivation takes a dive after lunch.

AdvoCare Spark® is a unique multi-nutrient system that was developed as a nutritional source of energy and enhanced mental focus.* It’s sugar free with more than 20 vitamins, minerals and nutrients that work synergistically to provide a healthy, balanced and effective source of energy that won’t overburden or over stimulate your body.* AdvoCare Spark® contains an effective amount of caffeine to give you the quick boost you’re looking for, B vitamins to enhance your body’s natural ability to produce and sustain its own energy, and neuroactive amino acids that help increase your mental focus and alertness by supporting your brain’s ability to receive and send messages.*

  • Enhances mental energy and focus*
  • Provides support for long-lasting energy*
  • Helps fight occasional drowsiness*
  • Over 20 vitamins, minerals and nutrients*
  • Sugar-free*

*The Over Achiever: CorePlex

I have resisted taking a Multi Vitamin for much of my adult life.  I am not awesome at swallowing pills, so at best, I may have had a few good months of taking a chewable gummy vitamin of some kind.  The thing was, I never felt any different when taking those chewables so I had little motivation to stay with it.

This is NOT the case with my AdvoCare CorePlex.  I take 3 pills in the morning with my breakfast. Every. Day.  It’s loaded with high quality ingredients, and I genuinely feel GREAT when I take them.

CorePlex provides a synergistic combination of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and botanicals to help supply the body with the nutritional components it needs to maintain optimal health.* Each ingredient in CorePlex helps supplement an individual’s diet and provides the nutritional balance often lacking in the daily diet.* While there are many multivitamin supplements on the market today, CorePlex provides a balance of the right nutrients at the proper levels to assure optimal absorption and benefits.*

  • Contains a synergistic blend of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and botanicals
  • Provides a strong nutritional foundation for the whole family*
  • Provides a comprehensive package of B vitamins
  • Contains antioxidants to help combat the effects of free radicals*

*The Multi-Tasker: OmegaPlex

Omegas.  The good stuff.  I, like most people, do not consume anywhere near the daily recommended amounts of Omega 3s in my diet, so this product is an excellent supplement to help me make up what my diet is lacking.

OmegaPlex is a safe, convenient and easy way to get the omega-3 fatty acids that may be missing in your diet. While other omega-3 supplements may have only EPA or DHA, OmegaPlex has both of these important omega-3s in the right proportions for maximum benefit.* Each serving of OmegaPlex contains a concentrate of 1,000 mg long-chain omega-3 fatty acids (600 mg of EPA and 400 mg of DHA). *OmegaPlex is paramount for core nutrition because of its involvement in the transport of nutrients, the maintenance of healthy skin, and the support of a healthy immune system.* It plays a key role in cardiovascular activity by supporting normal blood flow and healthy blood pressure.* In fact, consumption of omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.* Furthermore, it aids in weight management by supporting healthy metabolism, and providing and storing energy for the body.*

  • Nerve Function
  • Heart Health
  • Immune Support
  • Hair, Skin and Nails
  • Weight Management and Metabolism Support

*The Smooth Operator: Probiotic Restore Ultra

I’m just being honest. I have tummy troubles.  And I know that a healthy gut contributes to improved overall health; therefore, I am adamant about taking this high quality probiotic supplement.

ProBiotic Restore ULTRA has been carefully formulated to contain seven kinds of beneficial microorganisms. This combination of probiotics in effective levels helps to populate the upper and lower intestine. ProBiotic Restore ™ ULTRA strongly supports your body’s overall health by helping maintain the normal, healthy bacteria your body needs.*

  • Helps maintain normal beneficial intestinal microflora*
  • Supports healthy intestinal function*
  • Enhances weight management*
  • Improves nutrient absorption*
  • Aids in good digestion*
  • Provides immune system support*
  • Helps relieve symptoms of occasional constipation*
  • High amounts of friendly probiotics:
    Seven different strains
    Six Billion cfu

The Peace Keeper: Clear Mood

I am a Mom.  It is the BEST job in the world… but it can be incredibly stressful and trying at times.  When I don’t get enough sleep, or when my workouts don’t flood my blood with endorphins, my Clear Mood helps me keep my cool.

Clear Mood facilitates brain and nerve cell function by providing important neurotransmitters that help lower the effects of occasional stress, nervousness and worry.* One such agent, known as 5-HTP, is vital for the production of serotonin necessary for the brain and nervous system.*

  • Helps brighten mood from the occasional blues*
  • Supports sense of well-being*
  • Provides support for relaxation*

The Sculpter: Catalyst

Catalyst provides a blend of essential branched-chain amino acids and L-glutamine to fuel your body with the muscle-building components it needs.* Catalyst helps repair and protect muscle, and provides the essential amino acids needed to maintain and promote lean body mass, endurance and strength.* Catalyst helps rid the fat and retain muscle when used in combination with a healthy diet, exercise, and other AdvoCare products such as Meal Replacement Shakes or Muscle Gain™.

  • Helps maintain muscle mass during exercise and weight management*
  • Helps support post-exercise muscle repair and recovery*
  • Aids in preserving muscle and energy levels during times of calorie restriction*
  • Supports mental energy and focus*
  • Contains branched-chain amino acids and L-glutamine, L-arginine, betaine, and taurine

The Dreamer: SleepWorks

SleepWorks helps produce sound and restful sleep on occasional sleepless nights to help you awaken refreshed.* With niacin, vitamin B-6, magnesium and zinc, SleepWorks helps you naturally relax and get to sleep more rapidly.* It also contains valerian, which has been used as a medicinal herb since the time of ancient Greece and Rome and is associated with stress relief.* Passion Flower has also traditionally been used as a calming botanical, lowering the activity of some brain cells and providing a relaxed feeling.* Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone produced within the body and is involved in a complex process that regulates the body’s circadian rhythm.*

  • Promotes better sleep by helping you fall asleep, stay asleep, and awaken refreshed*



Hi, friends!  This little project has been on my heart for a loooong time and I’m so happy to finally launch it!

For those of you who don’t know me in real life, please visit my About Me page to “meet” me in this virtual world and be sure to connect with me on Facebook.

I hope you’ll follow along with me as I test recipes, share daily struggles and victories, and sometimes just write for my own sanity’s sake.

So, cheers to this new endeavor, y’all!  I’m looking forward to all that’s to come!
