Advocare Optional Add-Ons Catalyst / Thermoplus

on March 4, 2013

Catalyst:  (I take 3 w/ my morning Spark and IF i have an afternoon Spark, I’ll take another 3.  There is really no limit to how many you can consume in one day as these are aminos)

Catalyst™ Amino Acid Dietary Supplement

Helps maintain muscle mass during exercise and weight management*

Helps support post-exercise muscle repair and recovery*

Aids in preserving muscle and energy levels during times of calorie restriction*

Supports mental energy and focus*

Contains branched-chain amino acids and L-glutamine, L-arginine, betaine, and taurine


  • Someone who needs to preserve muscle even when you’ve restricted your caloric intake
  • Someone wanting to improve your fitness regimen by enhancing strength and endurance
  • Someone needing an added boost to your current weight-loss program
  • Someone who wants to tone, define and preserve your lean body mass

THE ISSUE: Loss of lean body mass can occur during periods of exercise or a weight-loss program. Though the goal may be to lose fat, a weight-loss program consisting of reduced calories and exercise can often strip us of the protein our muscles need to remain healthy and give us the toned, lean look we want. Furthermore, our muscles serve as the engine that burns calories and therefore consumes fat. In other words, our body weight and overall health are heavily reliant on the condition of our muscles. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and protein is the building block of muscle. Throughout a weight-loss and exercise program, people need to preserve the muscle they have, and help enhance and define the muscle they are working so hard to gain.

One way to achieve proper protein and amino acid consumption is by eating plenty of protein. Meat, fish, eggs, milk and soybeans all provide complete proteins. Although these foods offer the right amount of protein for healthy muscles, they contain calories or cholesterol that could affect a healthy nutritional balance if consumed in large amounts. In addition, they don’t always contain the wide scope of amino acids that are proven to help build and sustain muscle. Therefore, there are many products on the market today that offer single amino acids as supplements. The body is a complicated system that requires complex solutions. Your muscles require a comprehensive supply of amino acids in amounts that are balanced and effective.

THE SOLUTION: Catalyst™ Catalyst supplement works by providing a blend of essential branched-chain amino acids and L-glutamine to supply your body with the muscle-building components it needs.* Catalyst helps to repair and protect muscle, and thereby promote lean body mass by providing the essential amino acids that are in short supply.* Other amino acids found in Catalyst such as L-glutamine, L-arginine, taurine and betaine help fuel and maintain your muscles to assist and support endurance and strength.* Used in combination with other AdvoCare® products, such as the Meal Replacement Shakes or Muscle Gain™, Catalyst works to feed the muscles, not fat.* By sustaining your muscles during exercise or reduced caloric intake, Catalyst helps rid the fat, retain the muscle, and leave your body more toned and better defined when used in combination with a healthy diet and exercise program.*

Directions For Use: For ages 12 and older. Take three capsules between meals or 10-15 minutes prior to exercise or training.


Thermoplus:  (I take 2 of these 30 mins before lunch..I attribute my maintained/continued loss to this product due to the tremendous boost of metabolism.  You can take up to 3 each day in any combination that works for you)

ThermoPlus™ Vitamin and Herbal Dietary Supplement

Innovative weight-loss enhancer*

Supports the body’s ability to convert fat into energy*

Promotes a healthy metabolism*

Helps suppress appetite*

Contains oolong tea and sage extracts

Can be used in conjunction with the AdvoCare Metabolic Nutrition Systems


  • Someone who is seeking to support your healthy metabolism
  • Someone who wants additional support in managing your diet as part of a weight-management program
  • Someone who wants to further enhance your current AdvoCare weight-management program
  • Someone who wants to increase your energy level
  • Someone looking to add support for weight loss to a current general health and wellness regimen

THE ISSUE: Regulating body composition and maintaining body weight are critically important factors in overall performance, vibrant health and well-being. To maintain a healthy weight, one must properly manage calorie intake and usage. The calories found in the foods we eat serve as the units of energy the body uses to function properly. This process, better known as metabolism, plays a key role in the weight-loss process. When food is digested, its components are released into the blood stream and transported to all the cells in the body. Within the cells, these nutrients combine with oxygen to produce energy. In the midst of these events, about 55 percent to 60 percent of the energy created is ultimately converted to heat in a complex process known as thermogenesis. The more efficiently the thermogenic and metabolic processes occur, the more effectively the body can convert food into energy.

Maintaining equal energy intake and energy usage leads to healthy weight management. When our energy (or caloric) intake outweighs our energy usage, the body converts the excess calories into fat, storing it for the possibility of using it at another time. This situation leads to an increase in body weight. Should a time arise when the energy needs exceed the energy intake, the body will begin converting the fat into energy. This results in losing weight. Unfortunately, with more than 60 percent of Americans considered to be overweight, most of us are left with excess calories on a daily basis, which leads to weight gain.

Decreasing the calories we consume and increasing the calories we put to use are the fundamental approaches to losing weight. A healthy diet, proper food portions and a consistent exercise program are all key steps to take in achieving those goals. It is also important to incorporate nutritional support to help us where we are otherwise challenged. Finding nutrients that are readily available to suppress appetite and food intake while also spearheading a highly efficient metabolism and enhanced energy expenditure is a difficult task, but not impossible. More importantly, finding this kind of nutritional support can be most beneficial in managing calorie intake and usage.

Because today’s typical meal is loaded with carbohydrates (pasta, bread, sweets, etc.), even the healthiest eater has difficulty dodging consumption of excess refined carbohydrates. Is there a way to limit the damaging effects of too many carbohydrates?

THE SOLUTION: ThermoPlus™ ThermoPlus supplement is an innovative weight-loss enhancer that contains key botanical extracts to help support efficient metabolism and suppress appetite.* Together, they provide powerful support for stimulating fat oxidation and healthy metabolism when used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise.*

One of the foremost ingredients in ThermoPlus is sage extract. This widely used herb contains antioxidant and other properties that help promote energy levels and fat oxidation.* In addition, components of sage extracts affect brain cell receptors, which have implications for influencing appetite and food intake.* ThermoPlus also contains oolong tea extract, which is the partially fermented form of the Camellia sinensis leaf that contains components common to both green and black teas. As tea is fermented, certain ingredients known as catechins, each containing high antioxidant properties, are released. The polyphenols and other elements in oolong tea help stimulate the calorie-burning process while also providing better appetite control.* Together, the sage and oolong tea extracts make ThermoPlus an excellent aid in enhancing any weight-loss program.*

Another primary ingredient found in ThermoPlus is guarana extract. Guarana is used in South America to prepare an energy-stimulating beverage similar to coffee or tea. Caffeine is the main source of energy in guarana, but it also helps stimulate the metabolic rate, and can even improve thermogenesis.* The amount of caffeine found in ThermoPlus is about the same as half a cup of coffee (45 mg), much less than most weight-loss aids on the market. ThermoPlus works well as a standalone weight-loss product and as an add-on weight-loss enhancer when used with an AdvoCare Metabolic Nutrition System.*

If your weight loss has recently plateaued or you’re looking to further maximize your program, ThermoPlus is an excellent addition.* You’ll experience a more sustained level of energy while helping your metabolism work more efficiently.* ThermoPlus provides the nutritional support to stimulate and assist healthy metabolism while improving appetite control.*

Directions For Use: For ages 18 and older. Take one-three capsule daily 30 minutes before a meal.

    So I have only been taking one Thermo a day. You stated that you take 2 a day, is this ok to do? As the bottle states to take one daily ? Thank you for your help!

    • chellemills says:

      Well, I can’t tell you to do the same thing. When I first started implementing Thermo I was “told” by an upline advisor to take 3/day which I DID (and felt like I was having hot flashes once they kicked in haha). THEN I read the directions that say 1/day 🙂 Personally, I do not have any problems taking two but YOU know YOUR BODY ❤

  2. Walter Harrington says:

    I have a question can you take catalyst and thermo plus together or is it only good to take one or the other during the max phase. Thanks in advance.

    • chellemills says:

      Walter you can take them both!!!! (Only take the Catalyst and not the Thermoplus during 10 day cleanse) Thermoplus is great for boosting metabolism while Catalyst is simply an amino acid supplement, great for protecting your muscles from being used as energy 😉
