Today is week 4 in our “Fab 5” series, where I’m sharing my absolute “top of the list” Young Living oil-infused products – the ones I use the most regularly, and which I’d never want to be without.
But I have a dilemma!!! When I was deciding what is top of my list, I chose a product that I use every single day, and love!!!
Then I realised there is another product from Young Living that I’ve been forgetting to take. I opened a box, started back on it, and I’m utterly addicted to it too and having it every single day!
Both are drinks….so this week, I’m going to tell you about both products, because I honestly cannot choose between them. Can you?
OK, I’ve got a confession to make…..
My name is Artemis, and I’m an Oils Addict. I’ve been addicted from the very first month I began using the Young Living oils.
I was never addicted to oils before then. I always thought they were lovely substances, and I had a small range that I used, across many different top quality brands. But once I experienced the Young Living oils, and felt their frequency, and saw their results – well, it was like nothing I’ve ever experienced before or since. So I embarked on a journey to learn as much as I could from Young Living’s founder, D. Gary Young….and I fell in love with our oils.
After almost 24 years of using Young Living’s oils each day, I’m pretty sure if anyone was to test my blood, they’d discover it’s 50% essential oil!!! Of course I’m joking about my blood….but not about being an oils addict. 🙂
So I mentioned frequency. Most essential oils are produced in a way that cuts corners.
Companies want to make a profit, and so they cater to the masses with their product. There are great essential oils on the market – but none like Young Living. So you can imagine how excited I was when Young Living began releasing consumable products infused with essential oils. This means that instead of just putting my essential oils on each day, or using them to flavour my food and beverages, I can also experiencing the uplifting frequencies of essential oils in all of my consumable products….my supplements, my skin care, my cleaning products, my soaps and shower gels and shampoos and conditioners and animal products. You get the idea.
That’s why I’m sharing with you my “Fab 5” oil-infused products. These are additional ways that we can bring the magic and frequency of essential oils into our life, each and every day.
And it all adds up. Essential oils are life giving. They are health giving. They uplift our moods and transform our mindset. Why wouldn’t we want to have more of that? Over the years, as I brand swapped to Young Living and tried more and more products I’d never even thought to try, I’ve become “hooked” – in a very positive, healthy way.
I had to laugh a few days ago. I had some tradesmen come to my home to deliver some glass panels. I stood in the sunshine and chatted to them as they were doing all the heavy lifting work. And “age” came up in the conversation. They told me their ages, then were really bold and asked me my age. You should have seen their jaws hit the ground when I told them my age. They stared at me….and one of them stuttered, “I would never have guessed….you look so much younger than that!”
And you know my secret to feeling half my age? It’s Young Living. I live a healthy lifestyle, I’ve ditched the chemicals around ethe home, and I use Young Living’s oils and oil-infused products every day in many ways.
So now I have another confession to make. I was so busy buying all my usual favourite oils, that when this product was released in our market, I just didn’t get around to buying it…until one of my lovely friends and leaders shared how addicted she was to it. Her evident passion for this product inspired me to try it….and now I’m addicted too!!!
Young Living’s Vytalyte Drops
Firstly, let me clear up some confusion. These drops are called Vytalyte Drops in the AU/NZ market, and “YL Vitality Drops” in the US market….and Europe/UK is presently out of stock of them, although I’m promised they will come back in stock soon!!! For ease in this blog, I’m just going to refer to them as Vytalyte Drops.
Electrolyte drinks have been around for years. Athletes drink them. Mums drink them. Dads drink them. Kids drink them. But most of them are are loaded with sugar and dyes, and this causes our body to become more acidic, and it brings additional chemicals into our body that it then needs to process through the liver…and eventually our liver says, “I’ve had enough – I’m maxed out!!!” and those chemicals get deposited in the cells and tissues of our body, paving the way for disease.
But our body needs electrolytes. Electrolytes are essential minerals. They are found in our blood, and they help to regulate and control the balance of fluids in our cells.
But not only that – electrolytes also play an important role in regulating blood pressure, helping muscles contract, balancing blood pH, and just keeping your overall system functioning in peak performance. We lose electrolytes and fluid every day through sweat and normal body functions. That’s why it’s important to replenish them with a mineral-rich diet, or with a healthy electrolyte drink.
If you are a big water drinker, it’s critical that you are balancing your electrolytes. At one point I was drinking 3.5 to 4 litres of water a day, and I actually diluted my body’s minerals and caused some havoc. I was constantly thirsty, and experiencing debilitating muscle cramps. It didn’t matter how much water I drank, I was still thirsty – until I learned to balance my electrolytes. I have done that for years by ensuring I am having enough Celtic Sea Salt in my diet each day. But now, I have another way to achieve this!
Up the red carpet marches Young Living’s electrolyte drops
In my region (Australia/New Zealand) these come in two flavours – Lavender Lemonade, and Grapefruit Bergamot. In the US, there are even more flavours to choose from….although I confess, I love the Lavender Lemonade and the Grapefruit Bergamot the best. And best of all, they are all natural, and healthy for our body – no nasties in there! The Vytalyte drops are all produced to Young Living’s stringent Seed to Seal process, with no synthetic ingredients and no artificial or toxic carriers.
The flavor used in the Lavender Lemonade Vytalyte Drops is in fact Lavender and Lemon essential oil, and the flavor used in the Grapefruit Bergamot Vytalyte Drops comes from Grapefruit and Bergamot essential oil. These essential oils are evenly dispersed (emulsified) through the other liquid ingredients, so they don’t sit on top they way they would if we just added them to a liquid.
Don’t get me wrong. I love my water. I go to a restaurant and they ask me what I’d like to order, and I reply “Spring Water, thanks”.
But the Vytalyte Drops takes plain water to a whole other Planet. It’s absolutely orgasmic!!!! Definitely something you want to try! But beware….like me, you will probably find your new favourite addiction!
In addition to the essential oils, they contain:
- Malic acid sourced from apples (I use malic acid anytime I am doing a gallbladder liver flush – it’s a great ingredient).
- Citric acid sourced from the cassava root.
- Mineral Salts (ie. electrolytes), naturally sourced from the Great Salt Lake, located in the northern region of Utah, not that far from Young Living’s headquarters.
- Quillaja extract
- Xanthan gum
- Stevia (as a natural sweetener), and
- And they are vegan-friendly
The Vytalyte Drops are a liquid that you add to water. 1 squeeze of the container is equivalent to ½ teaspoon, and I find that one generous squeeze is perfect in my 300ml cups of water. It flavours it beautifully.
And now for my other favourite product…
The #1 Skincare Product which works from the inside out
I promised you not just 1 product today (ie. Vytalyte Drops, both flavour options), but two…
Even since it was released, I’ve been loving the Bloom Collagen Complete.
I was drinking it every single day for months and months…and then, my body didn’t feel like it needed it every day, so I dropped to every second day, and then to every third day….and then I forgot about it.
Our body is the most miraculous piece of intelligence. It seems to know when we need something, and when we don’t. I figure my collagen levels had been well and truly built up over the 9 months I was regularly consuming this. When I forget to take a product that I have previously loved, I just know it’s because my body isn’t requiring that particular product at that time.
But then I discovered an unopened box in my cupboard, and I tried one….and my body went, “Ooooh yeah!!!!” and I’ve finished that 10 pack in 10 days and I’m looking for more.
If you asked me which I’d prefer to be without – the Vytalyte Drops or the Bloom Collagen Complete, I couldn’t tell you. They are both critical nutrients (and delicious drinks!) that form part of my daily regime. So I love them equally, and I’m sure you will too. If you are vegan though, Bloom Collagen Complete won’t be for you, as the collagen is ethically derived from fish.
Why Bloom Collagen Complete?
Quite frankly, it’s the best liquid collagen drink on the market, and one of the best tasting ones as well. It tastes delicious, it’s free from all those nasties, and it contains the frequency and benefits of Young Living’s therapeutic-grade essential oils.
Young Living have conducted a blind taste test among 20 people to justify their preferences between 5 different brands of 10,000 mg collagen drinks. Bloom Collagen Complete was rated as one of the top two for its taste and texture, depending on each person’s preference between citrus flavour (Collagen Complete) and peach flavour (Brand M).
As with all products that Young Living creates, this one has cutting edge ingredients which synergise for better effects on the body.
And as for why your body needs collagen….You are losing collagen every single day after the age of 20. And this is what produces the visible signs of aging. Ouch!!! By the time you are 40, 30% of your body’s collagen has been lost (oh no!!!), and by age 50, half of your body’s collagen is gone.
One of the main factors in skin aging is the loss of collagen from the dermis. In fact, this takes place long before it becomes visible in the epidermis, and it is what causes your skin to wrinkle and sag. It’s also one of the reasons that our hair starts to lose its sheen and body as we age. So that’s where Bloom Collagen Complete comes to the rescue…..
What benefits will I see, and how long will it take?
It only takes 21 days to experience an effective skin improvement by taking 10,000 mg per day = one Bloom Collagen Complete bottle per day.
If you do this for 90 days:
- In 3 – 4 weeks you will feel your skin hydrating and brightening
- In 4 – 8 weeks, your skin’s collagen content and moisture will have risen, so your skin will look more plump and elastic
- It also benefits your bones, joints, eyes, hair, teeth and all parts of your body that use collagen type 1 as their magic glue
Each region has its own claims it can make about this product, based on local regulatory requirements. In Australia/New Zealand, we can make the following claims about Young Living’s Bloom Collagen Complete. It:
How to use Bloom Collagen Complete
Shake the bottle well before use, then drink one bottle a day. You’ll LOVE its taste!
If you are 30 years of age or older, start with a 90 day program where you take 1 bottle a day for those 90 days, then after that you can reduce to a maintenance amount of one bottle every second day on an ongoing basis.
If you are under 30 years of age, take one bottle every second day in order to maintain your collagen levels.
Ideally take it 1 to 2 hours away from food….but it’s more important to take it (even with food) than to miss a day.
Combining Bloom Collagen Complete with NingXia Red will give even better results in terms of skin improvement. Start your day with a Beauty Red Shot (60 ml of Ningxia Red). End your day with the Beauty Duo (60 ml of Ningxia Red + 1 bottle of Bloom Collagen Complete).
There is no need to take more than 1 bottle of Bloom Collagen Complete per day, as 10,000 mg (a single serve) is sufficient to revitalise your body, rejuvenate your skin and restore its natural radiance.
