Pic of the Week.
After attending a Melaleuca party a few weeks ago, I got my first order in! Melaleuca is a catalog and online retailer that’s been around for decades. From the website:
It starts with improving your health with a full line of world-class wellness products, supplements, nutrients, functional foods, and breakthrough innovations that naturally and effectively reduce weight, increase nutrition, and advance health. So people can live with vitality and purpose at every stage of life.
For my first order, I got a six-pack of Energy Kicks, a bottle of Affinia Ultra Moisturizing Shampoo, and a month’s worth of Sleep EZ.
As I’m slowly getting back into my fitness regimen, it should come as no surprise that I need pre-workout energy. After a long day of work, I need enough umph to get through at least an hour of cardio and strength-training. So, on my workout days, I down a Melaleuca Energy Kick around 2pm.
It’s comparable to a 5-hour Energy, but there’s no sugar and no calories, which means no crash afterward. And, because it’s from Melaleuca, there’s no artificial colors or flavors. And honestly, the taste is decent (I like the fruit punch the best, so far).
I’ve never been one to splurge on expensive shampoo, so I was relieved to see that I can get this bottle for just $5 and it still smells great and helps my color-treated locks. It’s sulfate-free (sulfates leave hair dry and often strip color), and it adds moisture to my hair.
And finally, the Rest EZ. As many of you know, I’ve suffered from insomnia for years. I’m terrified of a “sleeping pill,” so I was intrigued when I saw this all-natural pill that promised a natural sleeping routine, without waking up groggy.
Rest EZ uses Spearmint, Passion Flower, L-Theanine, Melatonin, Hops, Chamomile Flower, and Valerian Root to help you fall asleep faster and get a more sound sleep.
I’ve taken the Rest EZ for three nights now, and it’s going good. I’m not going to sit here and tell you that my nights are amazing and I don’t even need my Energy Kicks. But I will say that I went from feeling like I got two hours of sleep a night to now feeling like I’ve gotten six or seven. It’s an improvement, and I think it will help more over time.
Other Melaleuca products I’m going to try? The all-natural cleaning products, fiber & protein bars, and vitamin packs.
Anyone can shop at Melaleuca online or through the catalog. When I went to the party, I was given the opportunity to register as a Preferred Customer for just $1, which means everything I buy is 40-60% cheaper! If you’re interested in getting the same $1 deal, just shoot me an email and I can sign you up.
