Arbonne Essentials Nutrition Solutions

Before I moved to Colorado, I had never heard of Arbonne, but it seems to be a very popular skin care line here. I have other products that work well for me in those regards, but I recently found out they also carry nutritional supplements including protein shakes, energy fizz tablets, and immunity booster drinks.

Being that I’m working my hardest to get back into shape and get my weight under control (and doing pretty well, thanks), this sounded interesting to me so I was happy to check them out. I received a few different products to try, and I’m happy to say that I really enjoyed them all.

Protein Shakes – Available in both chocolate and vanilla, Arbonne Essentials Protein Shakes deliver 20 grams of vegan protein, plus 20 essential vitamins and minerals per serving. A box of 30 shake packets is $59. They also come in single serve and 12 packs. I tried the chocolate protein shake and it definitely satisfied. I used it as a meal substitute, as it has 20 grams of protein. It kept me full and held me over as well as any other high protein meal would have. (I currently eat a very high protein diet on a regular basis).

Energy Fizz Tabs – Contain natural ingredients to help boost and sustain energy while also helping to control hunger and appetite.* Clinically proven ingredients help increase metabolism. (not evaluated by the FDA) Available in citrus and pomegranate flavors. Each tablet is just 10 calories. I had the citrus tablet. They remind me a lot of Airborne tablets in that you add them to cold water and wait for them to dissolve by fizzing. Great citrus flavor. I can’t say that it specifically controlled hunger and appetite, because as I said I eat a high protein diet which keeps me from having a lot of hunger in the first place. 20 tablets are $29.

Antioxidant & Immunity Booster – A delicious 3 fl. oz. drink shot containing juices from pomegranate, blueberry, acai, grape, cranberry and other known superfruits; infused with powerful antioxidant and immunity ingredients as well as ingredients for energy. Each boost contains as much B12 as 10 eggs and the antioxidant level (ORAC Value) of three apricots, five zucchini, one kiwi, one cup of watermelon and one cup of cucumber. I was skeptical of this. I’m weird with random flavors and consistencies of liquids, and I may have turned up my nose at my first sip – but if you have ever used a 5 hour energy, it’s very similar to the pomegranate flavored one. After my first sip, I continued on and I ended up enjoying it. I’m not sure if I would use this on a regular basis, but that’s based on my weirdness, not the product in general! 24 bottles are $69.

Overall, I was really impressed with the Arbonne nutritional products. I likely would use the fizz tabs on a regular basis, because I liked the flavor of the drink.

    I am doing this. I am going to a Healthy Living class on Monday nights, using the Arbone guidelines, with a local consultant. I have been doing the shakes for a week. I use them for breakfast, with frozen fruit. And in the afternoon. I want the Fizzy tabs and the immunity booster. I also have the caramel chews, my SIL had them and gave them to me. The consultant brings all of the stuff and makes a shake for people to sample, she uses blueberry and spinach with with the vanilla powder. I am hoping that this will help me stay full. :)

      I definitely felt full with the shake! Eating a high protein diet really helps to keep you full. Good luck Heather!

    Thank you Katie! Good Luck to you too! I love the vanilla powder with frozen fruit! I don’t care for the chocolate, I have tried that out at my SIL’s house. And Monday night she gave us samples of the ready made chocolate, kind of tasted like Yoohoo! LOL

      I’m an Arbonne consultant…. I prefer the vanilla too – but I find the chocolate tastes better if you add a banana. I put it in the blender with milk and a banana and a scoop of Arbonne’s Fiber Boost and it’s really filling, and keeps me going for hours. Talk to your Arbonne consultant, find out if she’s tried it this way.

    I love these products! I have been using the new products for about two weeks now and have been able to release two pounds already. I know this is not a get thin quick diet, but I think just eating right and getting the vitamins and minerals you need makes a big difference. I am finally below the plateau I have been at for six months. Yay!

    I’m doing Arbonne’s 28 day cleanse detox using all the products you mentioned plus a few more. The chocolate chews to get me through the cravings times of day. The booklet explainign how to do it is free. So far I’ve lost 7 lbs in 7 days and my pants are looser already. I’m so impressed with everything I’ve tried so far! Getting the Preferred Client deal definitely pays off because I got a free product worth $100 and I get 20% off.

    try throwing some of the fiber in with your protein shakes! Dont know about you, but I NEED the feeling of a full tummy else I get grumpy fast! LOL. Adding fiber to your protein shakes, fills your stomach for hours longer than your protein shake would have normally lasted :) In addition, it drags any sugars out of your body with it so you don’t absorb them! Win win!

    I love to see all these great comments on the Arbonne Essentials line! I am an Independent Consultant in Colorado Springs and use this line myself, and have had several amazing testimonials from clients-anything from significant weight loss to getting off of medications, to increased energy…The line is also gluten free, vegan and kosher. I drink a shake every morning and mix the chocolate and vanilla protein powder, Fiber Booster, water/rice milk, spinach, fruit and the Digestion Plus (Digestive enzymes, pre- and probiotics). Please contact me for more information or free samples, as well as to find out about the Preferred Client that Kathryn mentioned.

      Surely Katie’s blog is going to be swarming with a ton of wonderful Arbonne customers and consultants! So I too will jump on the band wagon!!! A former teacher with a special needs child, I was fortunate that Arbonne found me!! Arbonne has proven to be just as satisfying as teaching since you are merely sharing a product and educating consumers……. I am proud to be an EAM with such an incredible company!! I have numerous testomonies of my own family (single mom with three kids) ~in particular my 5 yr old son diagnosed with autism and use with Sea Source Detox. I was blown away with the RE9 anti-aging but never got into the nutrition until our global conference in January! I began and within 10 days was 4.8 pounds lighter! I took a beginning picture (of my feet on the scale first thing in the morning) and again same time 10 days later. I love the vanilla with frozen fruit and water in a blender!! Oh ~almost forgot!! Heather ~ I think it was in the Arbonne Communications update a few weeks ago but apparently we are “formulated without gluten” carrying a higher standard then the typical gluten free :) Once again Arbonne tops the industry!!! PNW~ I would love to hear from you! Pop on my website and sign my guestbook!! Hope everyone’s 2011 is off to a GREAT start!! Hugs! Sincerely, Sarah

    Thanks for your interesting review – I loved the personal comments. I have been a consultant with Arbonne for years and am in love with their products! Have you tried (or perhaps you do not need to try, yet…) their anti-aging skincare line, RE9? It is the best out there for sure.

    Enjoy and thanks again for your review –

    I discovered Arbonne in Dallas, TX but now live in Kauai,Hawaii and still love all the Arbonne Products. I can not live without the premade Chocolate shakes (always keep a couple of cold ones in our refrig.) I even take them on the road and to the beach. I also like to make “green” shakes out of the Vanilla shake mix with extra greens from our garden (blended up in our blender)…soo good & healthy too. The Chocolate chews are good for a quick fix when straving & on the run, but I really wish they would bring back the Chocolate Mint flavor !!! Also, the fizzing energy drink tabs are perfect after a tennis lesson or hike in the mountians here, expecially if mixed in cold water. Stay well and Aloha Mahalo Nui !!!

    I have been drinking the Vanilla shake with frozen strawberries for a couple of years now. I love the taste and I am very satisfied starting my mornings this way. However, recently I have had a heightened awareness of how much sugar there is in the mix, 9 grams in 1 shake (cane sugar is second ingredient after the protein blend). Is anyone else concerned about that? Can anyone counter why I shouldn’t be?
