As someone who enjoys looking for ways to improve my health, I am constantly on the hunt for products that will help me hit my goals and make me feel good. I love working out, yes, really, and with that, means making sure I have the proper nutrition to keep my wheels greased and ready to go. Lately, Correxiko has been a go to brand that I’ve been using for my postpartum getting in shape journey and I’m here to tell you about the two products that have made way into my daily routine for the past couple weeks.
Correxiko specializes in overall wellness products ranging from superfoods, vitamins, supplements and protein powders that are utilizes clean ingredients, minus non-nutritious binders, fillers and preservatives. Basically, you’re getting the good stuff in one of it’s cleanest and convenient forms possible. You can often find a lot of the vitamins, minerals and macro-nutrients you need in fresh foods we eat, but sometimes we look for a little added boost and that’s where Correxiko can help.
One product I decided to try was “The One” Protein Powder. It’s a plant-based protein powder that offers 24g of protein per serving, which is comparable to the other whey based protein powders I have at home. It’s also gluten, soy, and GMO free in case those are things you are trying to avoid. Because of it’s high level of BCAA’s, it’s great for muscle recovery and repair. One bonus benefit of this powder is it’s lack of added ingredients to bulk the product up, is that it comes unsweetened making it a versatile ingredient for shakes, protein pancakes, power balls, and mug cakes. I chose to try different protein shakes with this powder and made a couple of delicious options you see below. My favorite was the frozen dark chocolate banana one, but my pina colada shake was pretty delicious as well! These were a great treat post-workout or when I wanted to have a healthy treat.
I’ve also been using Correxiko’s Flaxseed Powder in my shakes and morning bowls of oatmeal. Flaxseed has a multitude of benefits, like being a good source of fiber, works as an anti-inflammatory by serving as a source of two vital essential fatty acids, EPA and DPA. Flaxseed is also thought to promote a healthy milk supply for breastfeeding mamas. It also is a source of LNA which helps produce DHA, a crucial component found in breastmilk that promotes healthy brain function of your feeding babe. I usually add a teaspoon to my oatmeal and you don’t even notice it. It does add some texture to a shake but nothing bad or intolerable. It doesn’t change the taste of anything at all, and is a really healthful addition to the foods you eat.
I’ve really enjoyed the products I’ve sampled from Correxiko and could see myself using a few more like the Kale powder and Spirulina. I’d also like to use the lightening supplement but will wait to try anything else until after I’m done breastfeeding.
