Manic Monday Holiday Spree It-Works 1

Are you asking yourself “What is this It Works!?”

Well, I’m glad you asked, because I am here to tell you!

It Works! was born in 1995 out of Mark & Cindy Pentecost’s passion to offer families like yours the opportunity to dream big, to begin living life in your own terms—because they too had those dreams once themselves.

So Mark & Cindy devised a plan: an extra $500 a month, to be earned through a home-based business opportunity in the telecommunications industry.

“The biggest challenge in this industry—and really the worldwide market—is to offer an uncommon solution, a true original, that captivates people and offers them something they never thought possible before. When we found the Ultimate Body Applicator, we knew we had something special to share with the world.” – Mark Pentecost, CEO It Works! Global

To this day, It Works!’ first product is still its most popular: The Ultimate Body Applicator. The site-specific body contouring treatment has been in the hands of celebrities at Hollywood events and at the doorsteps of people like you all over the world—exclusively available through It Works! Global. It all started when Mark Pentecost received a call from Pam Sowder (now It Works! Chief Networking Officer) raving about a product that could deliver tightening, toning, and firming results in 45 minutes—an alternative to the growing trend for more drastic measures like cosmetic surgeries or constricting shapewear.

The It Works! premium supplements line began in 2005 when Mark made a routine visit to his doctor’s office. On this visit, Mark’s doctor instructed him to start taking a daily multi-vitamin supplement. But when Mark asked his doctor which one he should take, he was taken aback by the physician’s response: “I don’t know, but I wouldn’t take a cheap one. You only live once!”

“I didn’t know what to do with that,” recalls Mark. “You want to know that you’re putting the very best things in your body, so I began the long and hard search for the best multi-vitamin on the market.” Mark took a trip to a local nutrition store looking for answers. Sales people swarmed after him. Vitamins filled the shelves, all claiming different benefits. Over an hour later, Mark left feeling more confused than when he had gone in, overwhelmed with options. Next, he began asking his friends which vitamins they were taking. Some made their choices because the vitamin had a nice package. Others simply looked for a mid-priced vitamin, unsure of what exactly they were putting in their bodies. And others picked up the most expensive item, hoping that it was, in fact, the very best for them.

“The more I got into the education of a vitamin, I started learning more about what’s all natural versus synthetic,” says Mark. “A lot of times you’d find that a product might have 100-200 ingredients, but there wasn’t enough of each ingredient for the product to actually do what the clinicals showed they could do. You want something foundational that you know has the key ingredients to help keep us healthy and be the best we can be.”

Eventually, Mark’s search brought him to meet Don VerHulst, MD, a doctor with an extensive background in researching the effects of nutrition and natural remedies on today’s common health issues. Mark and Dr. Don worked together to kick off the It Works! premium dietary supplements line with It’s Vital, an advanced formula multi-vitamin, mineral, and enzyme supplement with all the known nutrients the body needs on a daily basis.

In his pursuit to find the best vitamin to keep his own body healthy, Mark has made it possible for you to have access to the same superior formula for yourself and your family. This standard of providing the best quality supplements on the market has carried through all our product formulations and remains the driving force behind the It Works! dietary supplements line.

Today, the It Works supplements line is a comprehensive collection of nutritional solutions for real people like you to help you combat the elements and stay healthy, and Dr. Don travels around the world with Chief Networking Officer Pam Sowder to teach on the benefits of the It Works! supplements and spread his message of ten easy steps to better health.


Now lets go back to The Wrap.


With the  “ultimate” Wrap, expect amazing results with this  45-minute body Applicator!

The Ultimate Body Applicator is a non-woven cloth wrap that has been infused with a powerful, botanically-based formula to deliver maximum tightening, toning, and firming results where applied to the skin.

*Tightens, tones, & firms
*Minimizes cellulite appearance
*Improves skin texture & tightness
*Mess-free and simple to use
*Results in as little as 45 minutes
*Progressive results over 72 hours
*Made with natural ingredients

What could be better than that!


The Directions are so easy to follow as well: Apply one Applicator to one area of your choice (such as the abdomen, back, sides, legs, arms, or buttocks) and leave on for 45 minutes. Remove and discard. Repeat after 72 hours.

***This product is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women or children. If you have a medical condition, health concern, or are taking prescription medication, consult with your health care professional before using this product.

I wanted to review The Wrap, on a male.  Most of the time when we see products like these, we think they are only for ladies.  But in reality, men have just as many problem areas that they would like toned and tightened as women do.

Before The Wrap……


You can definitely tell a difference just after 24 hours!  Imagine what the results would show after 48 hours!



If you are needing to tighten and tone areas of your body for those upcoming Holiday Parties, then The Wrap is the product you need!


The other Product I reviewed is “Greens on the Go”, in the berry flavor.



Alkalize, energize, and detoxify wherever you go with Greens on the Go™ in a new sweet berry flavor.

This convenient, single serving packet of Greens is now powered by an even better pH-balancing blend, supercharged with an acidity-fighting combination of magnesium and potassium for even more alkalizing properties. The addition of a cutting-edge probiotic helps you maintain that healthy balance by keeping your digestive system regular and toxins flowing out.

With 8+ servings of fruits and vegetables and a blend of 38 herbs and nutrient-rich superfoods, Greens provides naturally occurring, bioavailable vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and enzymes to give your already well-balanced diet a nutritional boost.

Just mix, shake, and take your Greens on the Go!

I love that I can use Greens on the Go as a dietary supplement.  And adding it to 8 oz of water or juice is so simple and easy.  I just pour 8 oz of juice at lunch, add in my greens and I have a well balanced drink for days when my life is hectic and crazy, but I’m still getting the nutrients I need!



This week I am featuring It Works! Consultant Michelle Johnston.
