All of these opinions are my own. I am also not a doctor so please consult a doctor before trying any supplement regiment.
I am a HUGE skeptic of MLM products. I was once suckered into becoming a promoter for one company because I needed some extra money. I bought the starter pack and I was SO EXCITED to get the products. When the products came I immediately realized that they were cheaply made and what was worse is they didn’t even work. They worked very slightly– and I followed all instructions to a “T”. I vowed to never try any of those products ever again– or sell products that don’t work to others!
Beyond this experience I am a supplement junkie. I’ll try anything at least once and I’ve added a lot of valuable products to my repertoire that I feel are totally worth the money for the results I’ve received (Hum Nutrition product reviews coming soon!). So when my friend Lexi started promoting for Le-Vel Thrive, I was super curious. I knew it was an MLM product but I couldn’t help myself. I’ve heard some good things about Thrive about increased mental acuity and energy and those are the two things I still hadn’t found a successful supplement for. So I figured why not. I told her I wasn’t going to promote but that I would buy from her and ordered myself a pack of their Thrive Black Label 2.0 Derma Fusion Technology or “DFT”.
The Thrive Black Label 2.0 is more or less a cute black patch designed to give you sustained nutrition all day. They say it helps with weight management, mental acuity, mood support, energy and circulation and nutritional support. I wasn’t as concerned about the weight management aspect, but I was interested in the mental acuity, mood support and energy.
I am typically SUPER tired all of the time. I suffer from anxiety and depression so keeping myself focused and energized even to complete the simplest tasks is difficult. Motivation is something I struggle with, along with keeping my mood stabilized. When I first put the DFT on I felt… nothing. 15 minutes.. 20 minutes.. 30 minutes… and then all of the sudden I was alive! I got myself out of bed, started putting away the clothes that have been on my floor for a WEEK and cleaned by kitchen. I also went out, bought the wrapping paper I needed for gifts, wrapped my gifts and THEN I went out to lunch with my friends. On a typical day, I would lay in bed all day– watch TV forever– and then at the last minute I would have dragged myself to get wrapping paper and then go back to TV and sleep.
The energy wasn’t that coffee / energy drink energy. My heart rate didn’t elevate. It did not increase my anxiety– I was just energized and awake. It’s hard to explain! As far as mental acuity, it was like seeing the world in a sharper way– sort of like going through your day in HD. I usually walk around in a fog, but with this I was alert and more focused. The sky was nice and blue, I was able to focus more on working on my blog, I just felt more present. You have to drink a lot of water with it and make sure to listen to your body– but I love how if you find the effects too strong, you can always cut the DFT in half. You can customize it to what your specific body needs, which I love!
Although I wasn’t using the Thrive Black Label for weight loss, it definitely suppressed my appetite as an added bonus. I ate once at 11 am and didn’t feel hungry again until 5 pm. I’m usually frequently hungry so this was a nice added bonus.
All in all I had an excellent experience and will continue to use the Thrive Black Label 2.0 DFTs. I have actually ordered more products– their 3-step– so I can review those as well. I wanted to share my experience with you all because I love coming across new products that actually work and add benefit to my life and sharing them!
