“Health is natural… disease is unnatural. Both may be fed by the food you eat! The choice of those foods is your responsibility. Eat foods that are rich in nutritional elements, and you will build strong, healthy cells. Eat altered, devitalized foods, and you will suffer from tissue cell starvation. ”
~ Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee, Sr.
The life and function of a cell…
Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee, Sr. taught that each cell is an independent entity… with an intelligence that gives it independent expression. There are billions upon billions of cells in your body, and each provides a dwelling place for your life. The life span of each cell is from 1 to 120 days. Each is dependent upon the food you eat for its nourishment, and its length of life depends upon the quality of that food.
There are many different types of cells in the body. Each type forms into the different structures… bone, teeth, muscles, brain, nerves, internal organs, etc., and each type of cell requires a different combination of nutrients.
A cell takes in nourishment and throws off waste. It makes its own structural repairs and gives birth to new cells. In other words, it is a living, individual entity with a superior intelligence which guides the functions it performs.
Of one thing you may be sure… your cells will receive ONLY the nutritional food values you supply. So… supply the best food you can and supplement with Shaklee!
How your cells are fed…
Blood plasma acts as the vehicle of transportation. While the large arteries do not allow the escape of plasma, the tiny terminal arteries are of different construction. Their longitudinal and circular fibers are so arranged as to form a screen which, when signaled by nerve cells, open just enough to free the nutrition-laden plasma to bathe the walls of the cells. Each cell then selects its food IF your diet has supplied such values. If there isn’t a sufficient supply of nutritional substances, those cells go hungry!
Life Shake reformulated! New & improved taste and texture!
Shaklee’s Life Shake… a nutrient-packed protein powder… is immensely popular. However, because it can be used for weight loss as a part of the Shaklee180 program, most of the formulations contain stevia instead of sugar. Stevia, a natural herbal sweetener, leaves a somewhat bitter aftertaste, according to some consumers. So… to solve this dilemma, Shaklee has introduced a brand new Life Shake formula.
The new shake formula is full of flavor and is a complete meal in a glass with 20 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber, and 24 essential vitamins & minerals. It has a richer and smoother texture with an improved fiber formula, and is perfectly sweetened with a new sweetener system (Reb M + 5 grams of natural cane sugar).
4 Delicious Flavors
Shaklee’s new clinically proven Life Shake comes in Plant Protein and Soy formulas to meet your specific needs.
Choose between a 14-serving canister or 28-serving resealable pouch.
Life Shake™ with Soy Protein
Life Shake Soy Protein formula plus a proprietary blend of chia and pumpkin protein is available in French Vanilla, Rich Chocolate, Strawberry and Café Latte.
Life Shake with Plant Protein

Sweet Story: Meet Reb M
Reb M (Rebaudioside M) is a breakthrough in the world of zero-calorie natural sweeteners.
It’s sustainably made via sugarcane fermentation, tastes like sugar, and leaves no aftertaste. Combining Reb M with 5 grams of natural cane sugar allows Shaklee to create delicious low-glycemic Life Shakes with 20 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber to help minimize normal blood sugar spikes and crashes, so you can feel satisfied for hours.
It takes just 2 scoops of Life Shake to get…
♦♦ Energy and satiety from 20 grams ultra-pure, non-GMO protein with precise ratios of all 9 essential amino acids.

New Life Shake Q & A…
Want to know more about the new Life Shake formula? Here are a few answers to common questions*:
How is the New Life Shake different?
Shaklee is committed to being at the forefront of innovation and consumer trends. Based on extensive consumer research and feedback, Shaklee has launched a richer, creamier tasting, and even more delicious shake. These new formulas provide rich, enhanced flavors and a smoother texture with an improved fiber system. They are also stevia free, using instead a blend of the non-nutritive sweetener Reb M plus a small amount of sugar.
Has the fiber changed?
Shaklee has replaced the oat fiber with non-GMO, soluble corn fiber and reduced the organic ancient grains blend for smoother consistency and an improved taste profile. The amount of fiber remains unchanged …a total of 6 grams of healthy prebiotic fiber that helps support digestive health and along with the protein content makes Life Shake low glycemic.
Is Life Shake stevia free?
Yes, the new Life Shake is stevia free. The new sweetener system… Reb M plus 5 grams natural cane sugar… tastes great and has no aftertaste.
Is the new formula still low glycemic?
Yes. These new Life Shake formulations contain a tiny amount of sugar (5 grams, which is 20 calories and equivalent to about 1/4 of a medium apple) that combined with 20 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber delivers a hunger-satisfying, low glycemic meal replacement.
Why is “low glycemic” important?
Maintaining steady blood sugar levels is an important aspect of hunger management and increased energy. Pure sugar (in apple juice or a soda, for example) will give you a burst of energy only to lead to an energy slump 45 minutes later. Having a low-glycemic option instead means that the proper amounts of protein and fiber balance the carbohydrates (sugar), so there is no spike of blood sugar but rather a slight rise maintained over a few hours.
Why was cane sugar added to Reb M?
Shaklee did extensive testing with consumer taste panels looking to find the formulation with the broadest appeal. Adding a tiny amount of sugar allowed Shaklee to use a smaller amount of Reb M and deliver a clean sweetness without any aftertaste.
Can I give Life Shake to my children?
Yes, to children ages 3 and up.
Are there any medical conditions that limit usage of Life Shake?
Always check with your health care practitioner if you have a chronic condition.

Year-round skin care means protection from the sun. Even on the cloudiest days, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage your skin! Applying a daily sunscreen or moisturizer with SPF can protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays all year long.
Why use SPF daily…
Skin protection. UVB rays from the sun are the main cause of sunburn. Prolonged exposure can severely damage your skin. Dermatologists recommend using a product with an SPF of at least 30, which blocks 97 percent of UVB rays.
Anti-aging benefits. Many of the visible signs of aging, are caused by the sun’s UVA rays penetrating to the deeper layers of your skin and affecting how the skin rebuilds itself over time. A broad spectrum SPF product protects your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.
Healthy-looking skin! Protection with an SPF moisturizer can help your skin maintain its smooth, youthful appearance. And who doesn’t want skin that’s healthy and glowing?
New formula: YOUTH Age Defense Mineral Moisturizer SPF 30
Protect your skin from far more than just the sun! Naturally derived mineral titanium dioxide provides chemical-free SPF 30 broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, marine biopolymers protect you from pollution, antioxidants protect against free radicals, while vitamins and nourishing oils moisturize your skin and improve skin tone.
