Old age is only a mythical state of being, arbitrarily invented by your own process of mind. Haven’t you seen individuals who were old at forty, while others are young at eighty?

What you need to know about plant protein…
When we think of protein, we usually envision meats, eggs, dairy or other animal-based protein sources. While these are still great sources of protein, it is much easier for the body to process and digest plant protein. Also, when compared to meats, the new Life Shake protein has several benefits including no saturated fat, no cholesterol, no added sugar and 23 added vitamins and minerals. On top of that, you don’t need to cook anything and no extra sodium is required to make it tasty. Life Shake is also non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, Kosher and Keto-friendly. It’s an excellent option to get complete nutrition on busy weekdays and when you are on the go!
New Life Shake Plant Protein vs old Soy-free Life Energizing Shake
Life Shake has an improved flavor due to pea protein-based formula and has 25% more protein (20g per serving) with no added sugar! There’s also a new prebiotic ancient grains blend for digestive health and added digestive enzymes for improved protein absorption. These ingredients come with great benefits like increased energy and satiety. It has 140 calories per serving of Vanilla Life Shake (vs 170) giving you more room to customize your shake with fruit or veggies.
The next time you want a quality plant protein option, give Life Shake a try!
A happy gut = a happy life!
Did you know that your digestive tract… your gut… is at the very core of your health and wellness? That’s because your gut is where 70% of your immune system can be found. Over 100 trillion bacteria reside in your gut. Many of them are friendly probiotics that work to maintain digestive balance and comfort. But sometimes stress, an unhealthy diet, and even normal aging can reduce the number of good bacteria in the body.
Enter Optiflora DI, a proprietary formula with 10 billion CFUs from 4 bacterial strains, includ-ing the powerhouse Bifidobacterium lactis HN019, which was proven in clinical studies to provide digestive and immune health support.
♦ Helps restore intestinal flora balance/good bacteria
♦ Helps maintain regularity
♦ Helps reduce occasional gas and bloating
Plus, Optiflora DI is gluten free, soy free, dairy free and kosher D. And no refrigeration is required.

How the YOUTH Hydration Collection will transform your skin…
Every organ in your body, including your skin, needs water to function properly. Experts agree that hydration is the foundation of healthy, beautiful-looking skin… and that hydrating skin from both inside and outside is the key to keeping it looking smooth, plump and supple.
Dehydrated skin can occur at any age and for a variety of reasons. .. sun exposure, the aging process, excessive cleansing routines, the weather, and more. And not only does dehydrated skin look less healthy, but it also exaggerates key signs of aging, making you look older than you really are.
With YOUTH, Shaklee scientists studied the skin at the cellular level, where proper skin hydration starts. Because healthy cells are hydrated cells, regulating and maintaining a sufficient amount of water in skin cells is key. The good news is your skin is comprised of a natural, biological system made up of proteins, sugar molecules and lipids that work in equilibrium to attract, maintain and seal moisture in the skin. But when age or environmental factors disturb this equilibrium, skin becomes dehydrated.
To restore that equilibrium, Shaklee scientists developed a breakthrough in skin care… active cellular hydration technology. Shaklee’s exclusive formula combines:
♦ cactus extract to attract moisture from the environment to the outer layer of the skin to hydrate the cells
♦ four forms of hyalu-ronic acid target the skin’s deeper layer, and retain moisture by holding up to 1000 times their weight in water
♦ 100% plant-based squalene from bio-fermented sugar cane forms a protective barrier on the skin to seal in moisture, plus…
♦ Shaklee’s exclusive YOUTH complex with powerful botanicals for anti-aging and protection benefits
YOUTH Activating Serum
Formulated with 10 times the concentration of the hyaluronic acid blend, YOUTH Activating Serum is clinically proven to increase skin hydration levels by 212% with only one application! And it maintains increased hydration levels for over 8 hours! In fact, 100% of women had measurably more hydrated skin immediately and 92% exhibited significantly hydrated skin for up to 24 hours! Plus, women who used YOUTH Activating Serum agree that fine, dry lines look less noticeable and the appearance of redness was visibly reduced.
Moisture Lock Day Cream
Featuring the same technology, Moisture Lock Day Cream protects your skin from moisture loss all day long for smoother, plumper, softer, and more hydrated skin. It’s designed to be used after the Moisture Activating Serum, and it contains Vital Repair+® Complex and Muscadine Grape Extract for anti-aging benefits.
The results.. . you can look younger longer with intense hydration from YOUTH!
Unmask beautiful skin
Masks are a fun and trendy way to add treatment into your skin care regimen.
Here’s a quick look at Shaklee’s two new masks that you can apply for an instant boost of hydration and radiance.
Hydrating Gel Mask
Indulge your skin with deep, soothing moisture for refreshed, hydrated skin. The refreshing gold gel is packed with hyaluronic acid, aloe leaf juice, and a multi-herbal blend for instant and long-lasting moisture.
Purifying Clay Mask
Naturally detoxify and purify skin with this triple blend of mineral-rich clays, superfine charcoal powder, and volcanic ash from Jeju Island in the Pacific Ocean. This formula absorbs and removes pollutants, impurities, and excess sebum to help minimize the appearance of pores to reveal smoother skin without stripping or drying.
Customize your facial
Combine both masks and apply them where they’re needed. Use Hydrating Gel Mask where you need moisturizing and Purifying Clay Mask where you need detoxifying.
Beyond Organic… a Shaklee standard
We’re often asked… are Shaklee products organic?
Actually… Shaklee’s working philosophy is something much, much better… Beyond Organic… a philosophy that Shaklee quality standards go beyond how and where an ingredient is grown. Shaklee confirms the purity and potency of ingredients AFTER harvest to guarantee that the final finished product is free of hundreds of chemical contaminants.
Why does Shaklee go “Beyond Organic”?
While Shaklee encourages all consumers to purchase organic produce and ingredients, it is important to remember that organic is a means of production; it is not a guarantee that the food is clean and free of chemical contaminants. Pesticides and herbicides… even when safely applied… can run off into unintended areas and farmland.
That’s why Shaklee’s approach is to work with the finest suppliers and to go above and beyond to verify the safety, purity and potency of the ingredients they use… after harvest.
Your safety and your family’s safety is Shaklee’s highest concern. And their Beyond Organic program guarantees the highest standards of safety.
Now when someone asks about organic standards, you’ll be able to say, “Let me tell you about Shaklee’s Beyond Organic Program.”
Shaklee’s “Beyond Organic” Standards
Shaklee screens for over 350 contaminants, pesticides, and impurities on every new botanical, 3 times more than U.S. Pharmacopeia standards.
100K Quality Tests
Shaklee performs over 100,000 quality tests per year to ensure that their products are pure.
