The Power of the Right Meal Replacement

Mar 2nd, 2012 | Category: Young Living Product Blog

Before we dive into today’s topic, I need to take care of one item: Congratulations to Sky from Georgia for winning the product blog giveaway contest! Sky won a free Balance Complete™ for being randomly selected from the blog comments.

Okay, time for the meat of the blog. Do you realize how many products there are out there touting the term “meal replacement”? After writing the Balance Complete blog post, this term has been in the back of my mind. Take my last shopping trip for instance: I was attracted multiple times to a meal replacement bar or shake and found myself judging the nutritional content. I came to this conclusion: The vast majority of these products are glorified snacks and treats, not meals. They simply don’t supply the vitamins and minerals needed for healthy body functions. So how do Young Living’s solutions stack up to the competition?

Power Meal™ is perfect for anyone interested in improving health or for those with weight-management and fitness goals. It is a vegetarian solution for those who cannot tolerate or try to avoid the natural compounds found in whey. This cholesterol-free product is high in brown rice protein (20.6 grams per serving) and is an excellent source of fiber.

Power Meal delivers at least a third of the recommended daily values for the following vitamins and minerals:


  • Vitamin A—Supports vision, growth and differentiation of cells, and immune function
  • B Vitamins—Support metabolism, energy production, and co-enzymes
  • Vitamin C—Supports iron absorption and immune function
  • Vitamin D—Supports hormone function that affects calcium, phosphorus, and blood calcium levels


  • Calcium—Important for bone health, enzyme activation, and muscle contractions
  • Phosphorus—Important for bone structure, cell membranes, pH regulation, and energy production
  • Magnesium—Important for nerve impulse, protein synthesis, and bone health
  • Zinc—Important for energy metabolism, protein synthesis, and collagen formation
  • Selenium—Acts like an antioxidant
  • Copper—Important in iron utilization and neurotransmitter synthesis
  • Manganese—Important for brain function, bone health, and metabolism

Both Power Meal and Balance Complete are excellent meal replacements that nourish your body and help you achieve weight-management goals. Take a minute to tell us which one you prefer.
