Started taking Herbalife Core Complex on Sunday, September 8, 2013. Nice change from taking the handful of things I was previously taking. Now, it’s just 4 tablets in the morning that include Herbalifeline, CoQ10, and Neptune Krill Oil. I’m not even going to attempt to study up on Neptune Krill Oil, but I figure it sounds very official plus the box says endorsed by a Nobel Laureate. Who am I to question the research?
After two days, I can tell you this. Wait for it … I can’t feel anything. But am I surprised? Of course not. I am happy to go from a handful of morning supplements to a tiny hiccup of supplements. The Core Complex has two additional supplements you put aside for the evening which is going to help me save money on my Nature Made B12 I was purchasing separately. The two additional include my B vitamins.
CORE COMPLEX – THE Verdict:
It’s two (pun intended) early to say, but it does appear I will get my B vitamins most vegetarians lack and I no longer have a mouthful of morning sups to contend with.
Why I’m taking it? I jokingly said earlier I’m taking the product because of a fancy label. Truth is, my body is taking a pounding from the pavement. I don’t have swelling on my knees, but I do feel twinges and sharp pains on occasion. Plus, my road mileage is increasing so I want an insurance policy for my heart. All these items are designed for a happy, healthy heart and that is the goal. I know the strain I’m putting on my body and want to give it the proper nutrients to keep on going.
Life lesson #93 – Listen to you body. Minor aches and pains from normal activity is something. Recurring aches and pains from abnormal activity is something else.

- Rest day. I peeked ahead and the Saturday runs are getting longer and the mid week runs are getting quicker. Rest day seems just right.
