4. Control Cravings
The Vitamin Shoppe Next Step Fit n’ Full Shake is a meal replacement protein powder designed to help you meet your weight management goals with a delicious taste. It’s enhanced with Tonalin CLA and features 6g of fiber per serving to help you control your cravings throughout the day.
THE VITAMIN SHOPPE NEXT STEP FIT N’ FULL SHAKE contains CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), which is a polyunsaturated fat that research has shown to be effective in aiding the body’s ability to metabolize fat more efficiently and support the immune system. I would recommend blending this protein with a complex carbohydrate such as oats or cooked sweet potato; a healthy fat like ground flax, chia, almond butter, or avocado; and your favorite unsweetened nondairy milk (such as coconut, almond, or cashew); along with some ice to truly make it a well-rounded meal. The addition of these foods will aid in absorption of the CLA, vitamins, and minerals in the shake as well.
5. Triple Threat
Vibrant Health BullsEye, Immune Defense, and Super Natural C help you achieve the pinnacle of immunity. Immune Defense helps to fight viruses, BullsEye helps to cultivate healthy bacterial colonies (and nix the bad ones), and Super Natural C supports the immune system every day.
