Vi Crunch™ Packs a Punch! About our Fi-Sorb™ protein blend
ViSalus® revolutionized the nutritional shake mix market with Vi-Shape®, powering over 2 million challenge goals and selling over 500 million shakes thanks to a proprietary Tri-Sorb™ protein blend. The innovators on the ViSalus Scientific Advisory Board have done it again with Vi Crunch, introducing Fi-Sorb, a potent blend of 5 unique proteins to help you achieve your weight loss, active and fitness goals with the Body by Vi Challenge™.
Fi-Sorb provides a combination of 5 proteins that work synergistically to maximize your results. Oat Bran Rich in vitamins and fiber, Oat Bran not only can help with hunger control, but can also improve endurance performance during training, and accelerate post-exercise recovery. Whey Protein Derived from milk, Whey is the body builder protein of choice. It also provides hunger control and muscle health supporting benefits. Whey Concentrate Vi Crunch provides a second potent source of Whey protein to increase muscle metabolism, which can also help those trying to reduce body fat. Brown Rice Protein The easy to digest Brown Rice Protein found in Vi Crunch can help decrease fat mass, and increase lean body mass, power, and strength. Milk Protein Concentrate Processed to remove lactose, carbs and fats, this protein supports bone health and can help slow muscle loss as you age.
“Each of the proteins in our innovative Fi-Sorb protein blend breaks down at different rates, keeping you feeling full and continuing to deliver great health benefits.”

LOW SUGAR—ONLY 3 GRAMS PER SERVING In 1900, people ate 5 pounds of sugar a year. In the 1970’s they ate 26 pounds a year. Today we eat over 150 pounds a year, and sugar is associated with high blood pressure and risk of other diseases. http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=56589 http://www.forbes.com/sites/daviddisalvo/2012/04/01/ what-eating-too-much-sugar-does-to-your-brain/
“Today in America, the average person consumes over 150 pounds of sugar per year (source ADA), which is almost a cup a day. Sugar in moderation may be fine, but at high levels it has been linked to obesity, tooth decay, high blood pressure and other health problems. In few products on the market today is this problem more evident than on the cereal aisle. That’s why it was so important to ensure that Vi Crunch™ has only 3 grams of sugar per serving.”
Dr. Michael D. Seidman ViSalus® Scientific Advisory Board Top 3% of surgeons voted by peers
SWEETENED WITH EVAPORATED CANE SUGAR & STEVIA
Vi Crunch™ gets its delicious sweet ﬂavor from the combination of only 3 grams evaporated cane sugar per serving and Stevia, a plant native to South America that has been used for hundreds of years as both a sweetener and a medicine. It is not only a weight-loss aid, but has shown benefits as well for those watching their sugar intake, and those with high blood pressure, as it can increase the strength of muscle contractions that pump blood from the heart.
