Why Shaklee and What is Shaklee?

When I mention Shaklee to many people, several of them ask: Why Shaklee and What is Shaklee? But, after they try it they Love Shaklee and learn exactly What Shaklee is.

Why Shaklee?

Shaklee has a long history of innovating through science and looking to nature with breakthroughs that are now just a part of our everyday lives.

In 1915, visionary Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee invented Vitalized Minerals, one of the first multivitamin supplements in the world. Today, open any cupboard and you’re likely to find multivitamins there.

Since Dr. Shaklee’s first multivitamins, dozens of innovative products have taken shape under the brand.

Landmark Study

Never done before. The study was composed of three groups: Shaklee distributors were compared with people who took no vitamins, and also with people who took other brands of vitamins for the past twenty years. Wait until you see the results! We can now definitively say that changing brands to Shaklee can significantly change your life for the better!

Another major event was the launch – Vitalizer that can only be described as a quantum leap in the history of vitamins and how they work in your body. Taking this new product on a daily basis will supercharge your vitality today and give you a healthier, longer life tomorrow.

Shaklee’s Landmark 50th Anniversary Study

As part of its 50th Anniversary, Shaklee commissioned the largest study ever conducted in the dietary supplement industry and the first ever on long-term dietary supplement users of 20 years. This study was led by Dr. Gladys Bloch, renowned nutrition researcher and epidemiologist, and conclusively showed that people who took Shaklee supplements had markedly better health than both users of other popular brands and non supplement users.

Shaklee supplements to help prevent major diseases, the results are impressive and speak for themselves. In the study, which featured 1000 participants, the incidence of heart disease in non supplement users was 7.9%, for users of other vitamins it actually went up to 9.8% and for users of Shaklee supplements 5.0% — that’s over a 50% reduction!

In the incidence of heart attacks the results are even more impressive.

7.4% for non-supplement users, 9.1% for users of other supplements and an amazingly low 2.5% for Shaklee supplement users!

Congestive heart failure: non-suppl users 5.2%, other brand users 5.1%, Shaklee users, 1.4%!

The dramatic decreases in heart disease, congestive heart failure and heart attacks for people using Shaklee supplements for over twenty years is clearly life saving. The first warning of heart disease for 40% of Americans is a heart attack where victims die and half of them never even knew they had heart disease!

Diabetes has also become an epidemic in the U.S., yet those taking Shaklee supplements had remarkably less incidences. In the study, the incidence of Type-2 Diabetes among non-supplement users was 11.6%, for users of other vitamins it actually rose to 13.1%, yet for Shaklee supplement users only 2.9%!

Shaklee supplement users also retained normal levels of blood pressure, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, homocysteine, plus ZERO abnormal levels of C-reactive proteins (a key indicator for inflammation and heart disease), while non supplement users and users of other vitamins on average did not.

Perhaps one of the most telling results on the quality of one’s health was the number of medications being taken by the general population compared to long-term Shaklee users. The average person 65 years and older are on 19 different medications. Yet, Shaklee users in the study averaged 0.6 medications – that’s less than one medication! Think about all the side effects of using all those 19 medications, from liver damage to just the brain fog of over-medication, versus living one’s older years practically medication-free! That’s a huge Shaklee difference!

Finally, during the personal health assessment of the study, participants were asked if they felt good about their health. 45% of non-supplement users said yes, 48% of other brand users said yes while 85% of Shaklee users said yes!

The results of this landmark study are conclusive and profound – taking Shaklee supplements on a long-term basis can give you significantly better health. Of course, we already knew that!

We encourage you to share this news with your family and friends. Encourage them to make the switch to Shaklee—changing brands can really change their life! And of course, we’re here to help them make the switch. Feel free to have them contact us by phone or email or visit our Shaklee website.
