How many times per week do you eat less-than-optimal meals simply because you don’t have time to prepare something that’s good for you? What if you had several of these shakes ready to prepare and enjoy? Would that change your meal? Could that change your life?
Yes, we think so.
In addition, using unflavored powders allows you to keep your shakes versatile. If you want to add cinnamon, do it. Keep it berry-flavored? It’s your call. Or, use these powders in a variety of Keto Zone® recipes!
Keto Zone Hydrolyzed Collagen contains type I, II, and III collagen. These three types of collagen do different things in the body. Here’s the breakdown:
1.Type I Collagen: Type I Collagen makes up 90% of our hair, skin, and nails and supports their structure and elasticity. If you’re looking to improve your appearance, Type I is the right type for you. The most optimal Type I Collagen source is from marine animals (1).
2. Type II Collagen: Type II collagen supports many areas of the body: hair, skin, and nails, immune health, digestive health, and joint health. First, like types I and III, type II collagen is present in hair, skin, and nails.
Next, it supports immune health and promotes healthy digestion. Type II collagen is a major part of your gut lining and helps it act as a barrier between the substances we consume and our bloodstream. This affects both digestion and immune function.
Lastly, Type II Collagen is a major building block of cartilage, which is why it’s beneficial to joint health.
3. Type III Collagen: Type III Collagen is present in all skin, tissue, and organs of your body. It’s often combined with Type I and/or Type II in collagen supplements.
Healthy fats are important in every meal. If you are in a Beyond Keto lifestyle, they are even more important for you. In fact, MCT Oil Powder offers many benefits. These include:
Most adults lack fiber in their diets. Specific, healthy fibers, such as inulin and psyllium husk, are amazingly nourishing in the body.
In fact, inulin is a prebiotic fiber that feeds the healthy bacteria and cells in our digestive tracts. This is a good thing because gut bacteria need a healthy food source! Inulin is not absorbed for calories, but is consumed by healthy bacteria and converted into a short-chain fatty acid that further nourishes colon cells (6).
In addition, psyllium husk is made of both soluble (70%) and insoluble fibers (30%). This means twice the benefits. Similar to inulin, the soluble fiber acts as a prebiotic, to feed and fortify healthy gut bacteria. The insoluble fiber passes through the digestive tract, mostly intact. It provides bulk and softness to stools, subtle laxative effects, and can improve digestive health, in addition to other benefits of fiber (7).
Our Mason Jar Keto Shake contains Fiber Zone, which contains both of these fibers.
When is the last time you ate enough fruits and vegetables?
Add just one scoop each of Divine Health® Fermented Green Supremefood® and Red Supremefood® and get all you need for the day’s fruits and vegetables.
In fact, Green Supremefood® contains organic carrots, beets, parsley, spinach, kale, broccoli, cabbage, onions, and pea protein. These fermented vegetables have been exposed to yeast and bacteria as fermenters, which eat natural sugars and starches in the food. Therefore, they are low-carb and highly nutritious (8).
Red Supremefood® contains nine USDA organic fruits, including Acai, Pineapple, Pomegranate, Cranberry, Blueberry, Acerola Cherry, Raspberry, Beet, and Apple.
Sure, you could just go out and buy a commercial meal replacement shake. Maybe, you’d even find one that’s low in carbohydrates. However, as a buyer, you must beware.
If your store-bought shake contains added sugar and soybean oil, you’ll simply be drinking a shake of toxins. In fact, overeating sugar may cause elevated blood glucose, insulin resistance, weight gain, inflammation, and high triglycerides. It’s now even linked to elevated health risk for women (9).
What’s more, sugars in liquid form are the quickest sugars through the digestive tract and have the most potential for destruction.
Next, soybean oil is one of the most detrimental ingredients found in our commercial food supply. It can cause harm to metabolic health, cardiovascular health, and overall inflammation in the body (10, 11, 12).
Having a make-ahead plan for this week’s breakfasts, lunches, or snack can really change your life. Not only will it help you consume the nutrients you need, it can reduce stress by eliminating this one decision each day.
