Back to School: Help College Students Avoid the ‘Freshman 15’ with the TruPLENISH™ Nutritional Shake
College freshmen are often required to live on-campus with meal plans that give them access to cafeterias that are loaded with vast quantities of fattening foods. For the student away from home for the first time, this often results in weight gain, sometimes called the “Freshman 15.” But Mannatech’s TruPLENISH nutritional supplement shake is a source of good nutrition, and can help students avoid weight gain*.
While freshmen don’t really gain 15 pounds, (studies show it’s really around 8 pounds) living on campus in a dorm with access to sugary snacks and other fatty foods can lead to unhealthy habits. Proper nutrition, along with plenty of sleep and regular exercise, is a formula that will help students have more energy and attention that can be used effectively for their school work.
But students don’t want to skip meals either, which is where Mannatech’s TruPLENISH nutritional supplement shake can play an important part in a student’s daily nutritional needs. A TruPLENISH shake is plant-based, gluten, soy and dairy-free and is filled with vitamins, minerals, fiber, probiotics, Glyconutrients and more than 20 grams of protein specifically designed to help support a healthy diet.
TruPLENISH can be made into a shake with products like almond milk, or combined with fruit or other healthy ingredients for a high-impact smoothie. It can serve as a substitute for a meal or an between meal snack that will help keep a student from becoming ravenous, so they can make healthy food choices in the dining hall.
“Parents can still play an important role in the life of their college student by helping them to stay healthy so they can focus on their studies,” said Dr. Steve Nugent, Mannatech’s Global Wellness Director and chairman of Mannatech’s Global Science Advisory Board. “The TruPLENISH shake provides a big nutritional punch which can help a student avoid binging on unhealthy foods out of hunger. TruPLENISH can help students keep their energy up and support a healthy weight.* ”
The TruPLENISH shake is appropriate as a meal replacement that helps reduce the feelings of hunger, promotes healthy digestion and promotes the development of lean muscle.*
The TruPLENISH shake is suitable for vegans and vegetarians and contains real fruits and vegetables such as blueberries, cranberries, kale and spinach. It is free from artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners and comes in tasty chocolate and vanilla flavors.
