It Works Product Review: ENERGY, not your typical energy drink!

itworks-energy-now

ENERGY IS THE NEWEST PRODUCT BY IT WORKS GLOBAL.

This new energy drink is already creating quite a buzz.  It was introduced at our Annual Conference so I was able to get a taste and I can tell you it tasted great!

I am not one to drink energy drinks, in fact I have never had one of the many on the market.  One reason is when my daughter was a teenager she came home one day and she was bouncing off the walls.  When I asked her what was going on she said ” Oh, I just had a couple of Red Bulls, mom.”  I didn’t even know what it was and had to do some research.

When I did my research and found all of the benefits to ENERGY, I will be drinking this one!

Here is the reason she was so amped up.  Many of the energy drinks on the market today are not good for you.  The are filled with excitotoxins which are similar to stimulants used to give you that spike of energy.

  1. Excitotoxins are a class of chemicals (usually amino acids) that overstimulate neuron receptors. Neuron receptors allow brain cells to communicate with each other, but when they’re exposed to excitotoxins, they fire impulses at such a rapid rate that they become exhausted.  

On top of excitotoxins most drinks are either loaded with sugar or artificial sweeteners and artificial flavoring which is worse.  In this combination they wreak havoc with your metabolism and your blood sugar levels and can be harmful to your heart.  On going use can mess up your metabolism.

HOW IS IT WORKS ENERGY DIFFERENT?

There are a number of factors that make it not only different but make it healthier for your body.  Several ingredients improve brain function, balance metabolism and balance moods.

Our proprietary energy blend is made up of caffeine from Green Tea Extract, a complete spectrum of B vitamins and 15% real fruit juice, which creates a synergy together that is not found in any energy drink on the market.

Green Tea Extract makes up the caffeine that is listed on the label and it the the best source of caffeine.  Green Tea Extract works with the bring to create energy and sustains it without the jittery feeling.  It does not cause spikes in blood sugar like chemical stimulants do.  It is known to boost metabolism, improve brain function if caffeine is no more than 200 milligrams a day.  The amount of caffeine in  ENERGY is 100 milligrams, which is equivalent to the caffeine in a cup of coffee without the negative side effects.  The polyphenols in ENERGY are from Green Tea Extract.  Polyphenols are the most powerful of antioxidants.

ENERGY also contains a full spectrum of Phytonutrients.  Phytonutrients aren’t essential for keeping you alive, unlike the vitamins and minerals that plant foods contain. But when you eat or drink phytonutrients, they may help prevent disease and keep your body working properly.

It also contains the complete spectrum of B Vitamins. , which are great for brain function so they are known as the brain vitamins.  They work best if all of the B Vitamins are present because they work better together.  B Vitamins are important for metabolism to break down carbs and produce energy.

You will notice that ENERGY contains fructose.  This might alarm some people because they think that means High Fructose Corn Syrup.  This is not the same thing.  It is Crystaline Fructose, which is sugar found naturally in fruits, which in Energy are Prickly Pear, Blue Berry and Cranberry. These fruits are also high in antioxidants.

ENERGY has a Glycemic index of 20 which means that it only raises blood sugar 20 points as opposed to sugar and glucose which raises the blood sugar 100 points. This causes unnatural spikes in the blood sugar which cause risks to the cardio-vascular system because it causes the body to store fat and also throws blood sugar levels our of balance.   The Glycemic Index (GI) measures how a carbohydrate-containing food raises blood glucose.  Low Glycemic is 55 points or less and High Glycemic is 70 points or more so you can see this drink is way below the Low Glycemic level.

 SO WE HAVE A DRINK THAT:

BOOSTS METABOLISM

IMPROVES ENERGY

SUPPORTS BRAIN FUNCTION

IS LOW GLYCEMIC

BALANCES MOOD

AND TASTES GREAT!!!

 

 

With all of this going for it, I believe it will become a replacement for people using energy drinks that are looking for a healthier alternative.

Look How Far We’ve Come!

team boot camp Aug 2014  300 people

MINNESOTA BUSINESS BOOT CAMP AUGUST 2014

Over the weekend my team leaders and I put on a Minnesota It Works Boot Camp.   There were 300 distributors in the energy packed room.  Myself and Darlene were part of the first 4 people in Minnesota to represent It Works so she and I put on a little history show.   I had never put all of the events that we have seen happen into a narrative so it informed me in a new way and showed me how far we have come in the six and a half years that we have been in the business.  Our first Boot Camp in Minnesota was done by Pam Sowder and there were about 30 people in attendance.

HISTORY SINCE I JOINED

I joined It Works on May 1, 2008.  My dear friend called me from a party that she was attending and said ” Are you sitting down?  I am at a party and they are putting on an herbal patch and people are losing inches in 45 minutes”.  We could talk about inch loss in those days.  I had such a strong intuitive hit about this product and company that I responded ” sign me up!”  She had to go sign herself up so  that she could sign me up.  This It Works Body Wrap sounds like a vanity product but it does so much more on the level of healing and energy and that is why I wanted to be part of it.  If it was just about vanity I would not be interested and would not have signed up to stand behind it.

We had been in the company about a month and my friend and I decided that we wanted to find out about the corporate team and their vision.  Neither of us wanted to go all in until we knew they were in alignment with our vision of health and integrity.  Eight of us jumped in an RV and drove to the head quarters which was in Grand Rapids, MI. At the time the company was very small and only 7 years old. It was owned by Mark Pentecost and Pam Sowder.  Mark was the CEO and Pam was building It Works one person at a time.

We were greeted by Mark, Pam and Dave and Debbie Sasek and treated like we were the royalty arriving from Minnesota.  Like I said It Works was just a small company and we were a big deal!  We spent several days there having lunches and dinners with corporate staff, having a tour of the tiny corporate head quarters, having a private all day training and being part of the first webinar It Works ever did.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE EARLY DAYS

  • The shipping department was a wall in one of the rooms with a long table and a few boxes of product and two people working it.
  • Customer Service was one person.  Her name was Sharon and she knew each of us by name
  • We could call Doug, our CFO, directly when ever we had an issue about comp plan or commissions and he would fix it right away.  He knew all of us by name too.
  • We had what I thought was a cheesy website, that I didn’t want to send anyone to.  At one point our CEO walked out of the side of the website and started talking.  Later when he lost some weight using the products he walked out of his heavier self, thinner and did a presentation.  That was upgraded technology.
  • We didn’t have a personal back office just a list of people we had signed up in kind of a tree structure.
  • We had very few marketing materials and no branding.
  • There was no easy way to duplicate the business
  • We were just learning as we went a long.

The purpose of this was so that It Works could pay off all of the debt that had accumulated while they were building.   It paid off because in 2009 we became debt free and are to this day.  That is very important in business.  Businesses come and go because they fail to build on a healthy financial structure. Businesses that are debt free will be around for a long time.

I have been to 7 Annual Conferences with It Works so I haven’t missed any.  The first one I attended was in a small hotel conference room and there were around 190 people in attendance.  By the second year it had grown to around 450 and I was one of the presenters on a panel.

I remember being scared to death to speak!  This weekend that wasn’t an issue because I have personally grown through the experience.  Network Marketing is the best vehicle for personal development on the planet, I can attest to that!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some images from my early days with the company

Most people in Network Marketing don’t get an opportunity to see the early beginnings of a company and build relationships with the corporate team so I feel very fortunate.

 

 

 

 

 

IN SIX SHORT YEARS THIS IS WHERE WE ARE TODAY

  • Head quarters has had to move twice because of the growth.  In 2011 It Works Global moved to Bradenton, Florida and almost 100% of the team moved with them, which is unheard of!   In 2014 we moved into our new, state of the art, waterfront headquarters because in 3 years they out grew the building  they had been in.  There are slides from each floor a roof top mini golf course and bistro’s on every level.

BRIGHT FUTURE AND STILL AN AWESOME OPPORTUNITY FOR ANYONE!!!

All of this and we are just entering momentum, only 2 in 10 people have ever heard of us, and only 70,000 distributors around the world.  We are considered a ground level company and there is still room for anyone to build a successful legacy for themselves and their families!

I am only touching on some of the highlights to show how far we have come.  There is so much more that contributed to the explosive growth of It Works!  This is just to impress upon the reader how far we have come in a few short years.

THIS IS A ONCE IN A LIFE TIME OPPORTUNITY.  PEOPLE WILL BE SAYING “I WISH I WOULD HAVE JOINED WHEN I WAS ASKED”.  DON’T LET THIS PASS YOU BY AND REGRET IT.

I WOULD LOVE TO TALK WITH ANYONE WHO IS INTERESTED IN JOINING ME AND CHANGING YOUR HEALTH AND FINANCIAL FUTURE.  KATELYN 651-955-3673
