Be Your Best with Biogen.
To be my best every day is something I used to struggle with. Yes, I read motivational quotes and inspirational books, but the thing I sometimes used to struggle with is the motivation and energy it takes to ‘Be Your Best’. And then Biogen came along.
Everyone who knows me, knows that I live a very healthy and balanced lifestyle. I try and feed my body what it needs, I drink a LOT of water and green tea (I even carry a plastic Ziploc bag in my handbag with green tea bags inside, haha, for emergencies), I train 5-6 times a week and I have meal replacements like Juice Revolution Lifestyle Juices (one juice every day) – Read a previous blog post about my detoxing here: (The Cleanse) – BUT… It still felt like something was missing, so that’s when Biogen fit into my lifestyle, perfectly.
Even though I have been using Biogen products for a year now, let me take you through what I use and why. I decided to try the essentials first. I needed to evaluate exactly what my body needed at that moment. I used get sick all the time. A light breeze during the day could give me the flu. NO, that’s no exaggeration. So, immediately I decided to use the multivitamin, c-ester (for immune support), vitamin B-plus (for energy and stress relief) and an immune booster. Best decision of my life. No more flu for me!
My routine: I combine my multivitamin (for daily health) with an Omega 3 (for heart health) in the morning, my vitamins B & C (as mentioned above) and then at night, 1 Immune Booster, another c-ester and 1 Calmag (for healthy teeth and bones).
To drink before I sleep for skin, beauty and anti-ageing: Peptan Collagen – Peptan is Type 1 Hydrolysed collagen, the same collagen as that found in human bones and skin. It is a high purity natural bioactive product containing more than 97% protein (on a dry weight basis), supplied by the human body, as shown by scientific analysis.
For training: I keep it clean and simple! I only have a protein shake when needed, and I won’t have it as a meal replacement, I’ll either drink a shake before or after I train. My favourite shake is the one I have in the photo below.
This has been a process, but I finally got into a routine that works for me. Remember, these products I use along with healthy meals and an exercise routine. There’s no easy way to a healthier and happier life, it takes commitment and determination.
