You only think you want a chocolate milkshake…

Are you a slave to your food cravings?  When you get this indescribable urge to run to the nearest Starbucks and order a Grande Brownie Frappuccino with whipped cream and an extra shot of java juice, do you ever think to yourself,

“Wait a minute…do I really want to drink a sweet, cold, frothy caffeinated beverage right now, or is my brain just trying to tell me that I need to include more phosphorous and chromium in my diet?”

Of course, you don’t.

  • Calcium
  • Phosphorous
  • Magnesium
  • Protein
  • Potassium
  • And more…
