Getting to the “Bottom” of USANA Probiotics

I’m here to give you the “straight poop” on your “gut reaction” about having “tummy control” with USANA Probiotics.

Go Play!

I remember very well being a little "rug rat" running around in my Mother's kitchen on some bright
summer day not so long ago, getting in her way as she cooked or cleaned, and generally making a pest of myself.

I can also remember her often expressed and exasperated command, "Go play!".

STEP 1. Choose a protein source.


All these protein sources are pure,high-quality and from a natural source.

WHEY - non-hormone treated cows.
PLANTBASE - pea and potato protein.

The flavour is is mild vanilla that blends well with other flavours or on its own.

Per serving = 18 grams protein
                         8 grams fibre
                         6 grams fat ( mainly from coconut oil )
                         0 grams sugar
             only 150 calories.

This means that one MySmartFoods Shake a day, taken with USANA's Essentials can help restore balance to your diet and provide you with the essential macro-nutrients to support your health goals.

It will help you feel full...the fat, fibre, and protein also help boost your overall metabolism.


- It takes more work to digest, metabolize and use, it burns more calories.
- Takes longer to leave your stomach, hence you feel fuller sooner and for a longer amount of time.
- Helps build lean muscle which makes you stronger and more toned and increases your metabolism.
- Protein-rich breakfasts can help regulate appetite all day.

-An important component of every cell.

The beauty of the personalization  is that you can choose what suits your body...we are all individuals...we may need different proteins at different stages in our lives or on different days.

My protein of choice is PLANT...I have been using the new MySmartFood Shakes every morning for the past 2 months...I LOOOVE it.
It is quick, easy and gives me a satisfying breakfast. I am up at 530 am and rushing out the door at 630am,  so I need a fast to prepare nutritious breakfast. I have found it lasts me until lunchtime and helps me choose wisely during the day.

Ac"cell"erate Your Health!

Human Cells

 Have you heard that the human body contains a trillion cells?  Well, you heard wrong.  Modern estimates are that your body contains between 50 and 100 trillion cells.

  Isn't that amazing?

However, if you are like me, and you don't always have a pocket protector, a slide rule and a few mechanical pencils handy at all times, you hear these kinds of numbers and really have no real concept of what a trillion is, much less a mind boggling 50-100 trillion.

 Let me use an example I found using seconds of time as a way to help us grasp these kinds of numbers. A second goes by pretty fast, wouldn't you say?  Well, a 1,000 seconds ago was about 17 minutes.  A million seconds ago was about 12 days past and 31.7 years ago would be a billion seconds in the past.  A trillion seconds ago you could be sharing space with a mastodon (no feeding or petting please) because you would have gone back in time 31,709.8 years.  50 trillion seconds ago (don't miss the first appearance of mankind on earth as we pass) is approximately 1,585,000 years ago.

 Are your 100 billion brain cells boggled?  Mine are strewn about the room utterly exhausted.

USANA’s Pure Rest Featured On The Dr. Oz Show

Dr. Oz and Dr. Micheal Dreus, The Sleep Doctor, offer tips on getting a good night’s sleep.

Start a Journal

Stress is a major factor in keeping people awake during the night. One way to reduce the stress and keep your mind worry free is to use a journal.

Create a to-do list. After dinner, take about 10 min and list the simple, practical solutions to achieving the items on your list. You are now on your way to crossing those items off your list!

Then close the journal and put it away.

Reduce the amount of light exposure before going to bed.

Regular use of the computer, TV, E-readers and smartphones before bedtime actually suppresses melatonin levels - which is the body’s sleep hormone.

Try reading books in printed form to alleviate additional light. Limit computer and TV time.

Take a melatonin supplement.

Melatonin is natural hormone that controls your sleep and wake cycles. Melatonin levels usually start rising late evening, continue to stay high during the night and then slowly drops in the early morning.

USANA’s Pure Rest is a high-quality melatonin supplement that is safe and effective as well as non-habit forming.

I take 1 mg. tablet approximately 60 minutes before I get ready for bed. I let it dissolve under my tongue which helps get the Pure Rest into my system quicker.

It helps me fall asleep so I feel rested and energized in the morning.
