If you don’t know me well, here is my story. I was working full time with and caring for my first child, an 8 month old daughter when my husband was diagnosed with a rare form of Lymphoma called Burkitt’s in May 2014. This cancer required him to be hospitalized for treatment while I worked full time to support my family and juggled the care of my sweet baby. I spent many nights next to him on the pull-out couch in the hospital with nurses coming in every couple of hours to check on his liver and kidney function. This led to many sleepless nights and many tears.
I needed help to sleep soundly, and this is how I found ID Life, and IT WAS MY LIFE SAVER!
When did I first try ID Life?
I was having trouble sleeping because of all the stress I was experiencing in my life, and a friend shared the ID Life Sleep Strips with me.
I was very stressed and needed sleep, and the ID Life Sleep Strips worked. The sleep strips are a minty tasting dissolvable product that you place inside your mouth on your cheek or tongue. They deliver nutrients, including melatonin, L-Theanine and 5HTP, that support all 3-phases of the sleep cycle. I am very susceptible to medications, so I was worried about not hearing my baby or feeling groggy the next day. Time after time the sleep strips worked for me without the lingering effects of so many other sleep aids including Benadryl. I was so impressed I decided to try more products.
I loved the sleep strips so much, I asked what type of Vitamins were available for my 2-year old daughter.
I was told the ID Life Children’s Vitamin was all natural, no synthetic vitamins or minerals, sourced and manufactured in the good ole USA and there were no fillers like sawdust. Yep, you heard me right. Some children’s vitamins contain sawdust or even worse non-regulated additives or synthetic vitamins from China or other countries. With my husband having cancer, I did not want my daughter exposed to anything like that.
I also found out that all the ID Life vitamins are pharmaceutical grade. Did you know that what you buy over the counter for vitamins is not regulated? It may not even be what it says it is or have ingredients that your body can even absorb. What a waste of money. Pharmaceutical grade means it is monitored and manufactured and regulated like the drugs behind the counter at your Drugstore.
Since my daughter loves her vitamin so much, I decided the whole family should try them.
Next up, my husband and I tried the ID Life Experience. What is the ID Life Experience you ask?
The ID Life Experience is as follows:
- Morning- ID Life shake + IDNutrition Morning Vitamin Pack
- Afternoon- ID Life Hydrate
- Evening- ID Nurtition evening vitamin pack + ID Life Sleep Strip
ID Life has made the vitamin process so simple. No more guessing which ones to buy at the drug or health food stores, how much or when to take them. They offer a HIPPA Compliant Assessment that we each took online.
It allowed me to answer very specific questions about myself, my lifestyle, my needs, my allergies, dietary habits and medications. And the results were a Health Assessment (better than the ones my Health Insurance offers), my IDHealth score, and customized nutritional supplements specific to me.
ANYONE can take the assessment, and it will establish a baseline nutritional guideline customized for you. It will also offer additional supplements to help with other problems you may have designated in the assessment. I have issues with my weight, thyroid and my back- so some of the supplements offered were optional for these issues, but I chose to get them all.
The vitamin packs come on a roll with your name and the date on them. They are in a box and you tear off the packs to take them. My assessment score was lower than my husband’s so I take a different combination to meet my needs. After 3 months, I will take the assessment again to see what has improved.
My vitamin packs for example include:
- Breakfast– B complex, digestive support, sprinula, probitiotic, vitamin c, zinc chelate, basic am
- Dinner– Anti-inflammatory, anti-oidant, basic pm, omega-3 complex, coenzyme Q 10, evening primrose, folate, magnesium oxide, vitamin D, Sprinula complex
My husband did the same thing and has expressed that he feels better since starting the customized nutrition.
Since we loved these products, we looked at other things we loved and started to compare products. We found that ID Life shakes contain more all natural products and no synthetic vitamins and minerals.
We were avid users of the Beachbody Shakeology, but have changed to the ID Life Shakes. They pack 23 grams of grass-fed, cold-filtered 100% whey protein and micro-milled chia seed to help boost metabolism, feed lean muscle and curb your appetite. This creamy shake is naturally sweetened and contains no artificial ingredients or synthetic vitamins, making it perfect for breakfast, as a mid-day snack or following a workout.
With an estimated 75% of Americans dehydrated on a daily basis, contributing to countless physical ailments, proper hydration has never been more important ID Life Hydrate delivers a carefully researched and designed formula of vital electrolytes, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins to assist in supporting cardiovascular health and providing nutrition for the body’s muscular and nervous systems.
Now I am looking into the workout line. The ID Life Workout Line pre and post workout was formulated to work together to help you get the most out of every workout. Coupled together it’s the perfect combination of nutritional supplements to maximize your workouts and support muscle growth and restoration. L-Glutamine amino acid, like that found in these products, assist in maximizing lean muscle development after your workout.
ID Life PreWorkout packs a boost with a premium complex blend of targeted amino acids, branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), vitamins minerals, enzymes and nutrients, this formula will help maximize your physical conditioning and mental focus. Every ingredient was chosen for a particular purpose based on how it would interact and support the delivery of the other ingredients in the formula.
ID Life PostWorkout is an athletic grade, nutritional supplement that supports muscle repair and growth, and relief from symptoms of inflammation, soreness, and fatigue after intense physical activity. It provides a high quality complex of proteins, vital electrolytes and antioxidants to address workout recovery, and proper nutritional support for your body’s muscular and nervous systems. Recover faster from your workout and give your body the essential proteins, minerals and nutrients it needs to repair and rebuild muscle tissue.
And for Weight Loss I am trying:
Appetite Control Chews and Lean. Lean helps naturally boost metabolism, build and protect lean muscle, and decrease sugar cravings. I have a slow metabolism so Lean is designed to help boost my metabolism and increase thermogenesis. It also provides the nutrient support you need to fuel through an intense workout and support your weight management goals. It contains electrolytes to minimize physical stress, muscle fatigue and cramping; BCAAs that contribute to both muscle metabolism and muscle generation; helps support neurotransmitters to better regulate mood, focus and mental energy and supports low carbohydrate diets, thermogenesis and a reduction in sugar cravings.
These solutions are very affordable AND they are 100% sourced and made in the USA. They are also pharmaceutical grade vitamins and mineral and the best money can buy! You can’t get better than that!
