Are you running out the door for a meeting, appointment, or getting your kids to the bus. These bites are a perfect way to get in a quick breakfast or a snack before lunch or dinner. They are only about 200 calories each protein ball so they are perfect if your looking to lose or maintain weight and need a snack in between meals.†

They are packed with high quality nutrient dense foods such as our whey protein isolate powder to enhance lean muscle mass. If your off to the gym and need an energy filled snack grab one of these protein bites. If you need something filling they have the organic flaxseed powder which provides omega-3 fatty acids which is rich in fiber to keep you feeling fuller longer. This may help if your looking to maintain your weight! †

OMEGA-3

Omegas are a true powerhouse! They are important not only for our heart and brain, but also for our eyes, veins and skin. Omegas can aid in digestion, support healthy bowel function and hydrate from the inside out. Omegas can also ease inflammation.†

Our options: Fish Oil, Biomega, Krill Oil Advanced and Organic Flaxseed Powder (vegetarian option)

NAC (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine)

NAC is a precursor to glutathione, which means our bodies use NAC to make glutathione, which is essential for anti-aging. NAC is most commonly used for our respiratory system to open up the lungs for easier breathing and to aid in liver and kidney detoxification.†

Our option: NAC

GRAPE SEED EXTRACT

Grape Seed Extract is a great antioxidant that can help aid in circulation. This nutrient can also be beneficial for maintaining healthy blood pressure levels, healthy eyes and even targets inflammation.†

Our option: Grape Seed Extract

RESVERATROL

Resveratrol is something we’ve all heard of…it’s what makes a glass of red wine “good for you”. It’s great for anti-aging, as well as our brain, heart and intestinal health. Resveratrol can help our cells fend off free radical damage, which can make us more susceptible to developing illnesses and diseases.†

Our options: Resveratrol, Resveratrol HxⓇ, Resveratrol Max HxⓇ and Resveratrol-50

GREEN TEA

Green tea is a great all-around beneficial antioxidant. Not only is it good for maintaining healthy weight but can also aid in weight loss by helping to promote fat burning in our bodies. Green tea can also act as an immunity booster and can support healthy cell division.†

CALCIUM

Everyone knows how important calcium is for our bones. It helps to keep them strong and healthy. It can help maintain bone density and is essential for proper bone aging. Calcium is best used along with such vitamins and minerals like magnesium, Vitamin D, Vitamin K and sometimes strontium.†

Our options: Calcium Magnesium Citrate, Calplex HxⓇ and Bone Powder (aka MY PERSONAL FAVORITE!)†

Vitamin D 

Vitamin D3 that is a lipid soluble compound that plays a significant role in calcium homeostasis and bone metabolism. Vitamin D naturally comes from sunlight but with time people are getting less sunlight spending more time indoors. As mentioned above calcium and vitamin D can play a role together therefore it is important to include vitamin D into your daily regimen as well. † 

Our options: Vitamin D3 1000 IU, Vitamin D3 3000 IU, and Vitamin D3 300 IU †
