Stay Lean products have recently been updated in the form of new white lids and seals to replace the old silver lids. These could occasionally break and lead to the product leaking and this will fix this.

Coffee beans are naturally green, but they are usually roasted by the manufacturer before being sold to the consumer which turns them brown.
Coffee beans are naturally loaded with antioxidants and pharmacologically active compounds, two of the most important ones being Caffeine and Chlorogenic Acid.
Most of the chlorogenic acid is removed when coffee is roasted . For this exact reason, regular coffee beans won’t have the same effect even though there are plenty of other good reasons to drink coffee.
Chlorogenic Acid is believed to be the main active ingredient in green coffee beans. This ingredient can reduce body weight, reduce fat absorbed from the diet, reduce fat stored in the liver and improve the function of the fat burning hormone adiponectin. Caffiene, the other main ingredient, has also been shown to boost the metabolism.
L-carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid found mostly in meat and dairy products.
It can be produced by the body as long as you’re also eating enough of two other amino acids that it can’t produce, which are lysine and methionine.
L-carnitine serves several vital functions in the body, mostly related to the production of energy. Therefore, it’s not surprising that most of the L-carnitine in the body is found in the muscles, which have to be able to quickly generate a tremendous amount of energy for movement.
People supplement with L-carnitine to increase their body’s carnitine stores, especially the carnitine levels in their muscles which can produce a number of beneficial effects, including less muscle soreness and better post-workout recovery which is good for people who do regular weight training and exercise.
L-Glutamine is one of the most important nutrients for a healthy digestive tract because of its ability to maintain the integrity of the intestinal wall. This amino acid is the most abundant amino acid in the body and also heals all tissue in the body, especially those irritated tissues in the digestive tract. It is also known as the calming amino acid since it’s very effective at reducing anxiety, as well as sugar and alcohol cravings.
Hydrolysed whey protein is an very pure form of whey protein. Hydrolysed Whey Protein is made through a process known as hydrolysis, where the protein chains are broken down, or “pre-digested”, into smaller segments via treatment with enzymes. This produces much smaller protein particles called peptides which are easily absorbed in the body. This also means that hydrolysed whey protein has a much faster rate of digestion and absorption. Hydrolysed whey protein is therefore often used to improve the recovery and protein synthesis process needed after a workout.
Algae in recent years has grown in popularity and can be bought in capsule form in many stores and also in various forms. Spirulina and chlorella are two examples of products derived from algae.
Spirulina is an extraordinarily rich source of protein, which accounts for about 60 percent of the algae’s overall composition. This compares with soybeans at 34 percent protein, beef with 17 percent protein and eggs at 12 percent protein. Spirulina also delivers high levels of vitamin B-12, offering 200 mcg of the vitamin for every 100 grams of the algae.
Kelp, a strain of marine algae, is a rich source of iodine and a number of other important nutrients, including essential fatty acids, fiber, potassium, protein and sodium.
Chlorella, another micro algae, is full of chlorophyll, providing the richest food source of the green pigment, which the body can use to cleanse and heal its organs.
In addition to its rich stores of chlorophyll, chlorella contains a wide array of other nutrients, including beta carotene, selenium, zinc, vitamins B-12, C and E and a substance called Chlorella Growth Factor. This supports the body’s immune system as it stimulates the healing and replacement of cellular tissue.
Homemade Almond & Coconut Butter
300g Almonds blended.
180g pure coconut oil.
Small amount of macadamia oil.
First, blend the 300g of almonds until a paste consistency is achieved.
Any blender will do the job but personally use a Vitamix blender.
Once this is blended, add the 180g of pure coconut oil to the almond paste.
Once mixed in the blender, add a splash of macadamia oil to the mix and blend again.
Pour the finished mix into jars and store them at room temperature.
Butter is always best eaten when it is of a paste consistency rather than as a liquid.
