“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 nutrition. We might compare the various cell types to the various types of buildings, which require different types of construction material. There, however, the comparison ends. The body is an organic structure, and is endowed with life

All About Life Shake

Join Nancy Baldwin and Dr. Jamie McManus, Chair of Medical Affairs for an in-depth review of Life Shake: from the many nutrients that comprise this amazing product, why we commonly refer to it as one of the healthiest meals on the planet, and why it’s unlike anything in the market. In addition, discover why Life Shake is a foundational product in the Shaklee 180 Weight Loss Program and more details behind the Clinically proven results.

What is your health concern?

It’s so good to know that there are synergistic nutrient combinations that can help with many health issues. Here’s what to take if you’re concerned about:

Cardiovascular Health

A healthy cardiovascular system, which includes the heart and blood vessels, plays a crucial role in maintaining overall health. It ensures the efficient circulation of blood, oxygen, and nutrients throughout the body. These nutrients have gained prominence for their potential benefits in promoting heart health.

____ Omega-3 fatty acids (found in Omega-Guard) reduce inflammation, which leads to improved blood pressure control and decreased risk of heart disease.

____ Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10 (CoQHeart) is a naturally occurring antioxidant that plays a crucial role in energy production within cells, including those in the heart.

____ Magnesium (Sustained Release Vital-Mag, Osteo-Matrix) is an essential mineral that plays a key role in maintaining a regular heartbeat, supporting blood vessel function and lowering risk of cardiovascular issues.

____ Vitamin D (Vita-D3) receptors are present in the heart and blood vessels, and maintaining optimal levels may improve blood pressure regulation and reduce the risk of heart disease.

____ Garlic extract (Garlic Complex) contains allicin, a compound with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

____ Soluble fiber (Life Shake) has been shown to help lower cholesterol levels.

Embrace heartful harmony by combining these supplements with a heart-healthy lifestyle for a resilient cardiovascular system that supports your overall well-being and longevity.

Healthy Immunity

A healthy immune system acts as the body’s defense against infections and illnesses. While a balanced diet, regular exercise, and adequate sleep are essential components of a strong immune system, many individuals turn to specific nutrients to provide an extra boost:

____ Vitamin C (Sustained Release Vita-C, Chewable Vita-C)is involved in various immune functions, including the production of white blood cells and antibodies. An antioxidant, it helps protect cells from damage caused by free radicals.

____ Vitamin D (Vita-D3) supports the production of antimicrobial peptides that help fight off infections.

____ Zinc (Zinc Complex) is involved in the development and function of immune cells and helps regulate inflammation.

____ A significant portion of the immune system resides in the gut, making gut health crucial for overall immunity. Probiotics (Optiflora Sustem, Optiflora DI and Good Gut & Go MultiTasker) are beneficial bacteria that promote a healthy balance of gut flora. They help regulate the immune response and prevent the overgrowth of harmful bacteria.

____ Echinacea (Defend & Resist Complex, Triple Defense Boost) stimulates the immune system, may help reduce the severity and duration of colds and can be a preventive measure against respiratory infections.

____ Elderberry (Shaklee 180 Elderberry Energizing Tea, Defend & Resist Complex, Triple Defense Boost) is rich in antioxidants and contains compounds that may help inhibit the replication of viruses.

Elderberry Tea

Bye coffee and amped-up sodas! Shaklee 180 Energizing Tea in Elderberry is an antioxidant-rich blend of green, white, and red teas that provides a safe and natural pick-me-up. No artificial flavors, sweeteners, colors, or preservatives ever. Available now in the immune-supporting Elderberry flavor!

Bone Health

Maintaining strong and healthy bones is crucial for overall well-being and longevity. While a balanced diet and weight-bearing exercises contribute to bone health, supplements can ensure you are meeting your nutritional needs.

____ Calcium (OsteoMatrix, Chewable Cal Mag Plus) plays a vital role in maintaining bone density and strength. Adequate calcium intake is essential throughout life, with increased importance during childhood, adolescence, and postmenopausal years.

____ Vitamin D (Vita-D3) is crucial for bone health as it helps the body absorb calcium from the diet. Insufficient vitamin D levels can lead to poor calcium absorption, resulting in weakened bones.

____ Magnesium (Vital-Mag, OsteoMatrix) works in synergy with calcium to support bone health. It plays a role in bone mineralization and influences the activity of osteoblasts, the cells responsible for bone formation.

____ Vitamin K (Vita-Lea Gold with K, Vitalizer Gold with K) is essential for bone metabolism as it helps regulate calcium within the bones and blood vessels. It plays a role in the synthesis of proteins involved in bone mineralization.

____ Collagen (Collagen-9, Up & Glowing MultiTasker) provides structure to bones, tendons, and ligaments. Since its production in the body declines with age, a collagen supplement may benefit those experiencing joint discomfort.

____ Boron (Sustained Release VitalMag) influences calcium and magnesium metabolism, increasing bone density.

A Healthy Nervous System

A well-functioning nervous system is essential for overall health, influencing everything from cognitive function to motor skills. These nutrients can help:

____ Omega-3 fatty acids (OmegaGuard), particularly EPA and DHA, are essential components of brain cell membranes. These fatty acids support cognitive function and contribute to overall nerve cell health.

____ The B-vitamins (B-Complex), including B1 (thiamine), B6 (pyridoxine), B9 (folate), and B12 (cobalamin), plays a crucial role in nerve function. Thiamine helps nerve cells produce energy, while B6 and B12 are involved in neurotransmitter synthesis. Folate is essential for DNA and RNA synthesis, crucial for nerve cell development and repair.

____ Magnesium (Sustained Release VitalMag) acts as a natural relaxant for nerves and muscles. It plays a role in neurotransmitter release and helps regulate nerve function. Magnesium deficiency may lead to symptoms like muscle cramps and tingling sensations.

____ Vitamin D (Vita-D3) is vital for the nervous system. Vitamin D receptors in the brain play a role in nerve cell protection and function.

____ L-theanine (Shaklee 180 Green Matcha Energizing Tea) is an amino acid known for its calming effects on the nervous system without inducing drowsiness. L-theanine enhances alpha brain waves, promoting a state of relaxed alertness.

____ CoQ10 (CoQHeart) plays a crucial role in the production of cellular energy. It is particularly important for nerve cells, which require significant energy to function optimally.

By addressing your specific health concerns with Shaklee supplement combos, in conjunction with consultation with your healthcare professional when necessary, you’ll experience a more positive outcome.

Omega 3’s | The Science and Benefits

Join Nancy Baldwin for a conversation with Dr. Maciej Chichlowski on Omega 3’s. What they are, the multiple health benefits that can be achieved through consumption and supplementation with Omega 3’s, a review on supporting clinical research including the phenomenal Omega 3 Index results from the Landmark Study.

Healthy Muscles

Maintaining a strong and resilient muscular system is crucial for overall physical health and functionality. Regular exercise and a protein-rich diet are key components of muscle health; however, these nutrients can provide additional support:

____ Proteins (Life Shake, Energizing Soy Protein) comprise the building blocks of muscles, and ensuring an adequate protein intake is essential for muscle development and repair.

____ Branched-Chain Amino Acids or BCAAs (Performance® Advanced Physique® 100% Grass-Fed Whey Protein), including leucine, isoleucine, and valine, are essential amino acids that play a key role in muscle protein synthesis. BCAAs support muscle recovery after intense workouts. They help reduce muscle soreness, promote protein synthesis, and prevent muscle breakdown.

____ Omega-3 fatty acids (OmegaGuard), particularly EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), support the muscular system by reducing inflammation. Inflammation can impair muscle recovery and increase the risk of injury.

____ Vitamin D (Vita-D3) is associated with improved muscle strength and performance.

____ Magnesium (VitalMag) helps muscles contract and relax. It is also involved in the production of ATP, supporting energy metabolism within muscle cells.

A Healthy Endocrine System

The endocrine system, comprised of glands that produce hormones, plays a pivotal role in regulating various bodily functions, including metabolism, growth, and mood. A well-functioning endocrine system is crucial for overall health, and these nutrients can support optimal function:

____ Ashwagandha (Stress Relief Complex, Cheer Up & Chill Out MultiTasker), an adaptogenic herb, modulates the stress response, supporting hormonal balance and reducing the negative impact of chronic stress on the endocrine system. Chronic stress can disrupt the balance of hormones in the endocrine system, leading to various health issues.

____ Omega-3 fatty acids (OmegaGuard), particularly EPA and DHA have anti-inflammatory properties that can positively influence the endocrine system. Chronic inflammation can disrupt hormonal balance.

____ Vitamin D (Vita-D3) acts as a hormone itself and is crucial for the proper functioning of the parathyroid glands, which regulate calcium levels in the body.

____ Selenium (Vita-E Complex, Vita-E 400 IU) plays a critical role in thyroid function. The thyroid gland produces hormones essential for metabolism and overall energy regulation. Selenium supports the conversion of thyroid hormones and protects the thyroid gland from oxidative stress.

____ Magnesium (VitalMag) is involved in various enzymatic reactions, including those related to insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism. Maintaining balanced blood sugar levels is crucial for overall endocrine health.

Stress Relief Complex

A natural way to prevent body odor…

Yuck! We have all experienced it… that sweaty underarm odor from a heavy workout or mowing the lawn on a hot day; foot odor from socks when you take off your shoes; bad breath after too much garlic, onions, alcohol, or coffee; that acrid smell from a fever or illness.

Usually the odor disappears after a shower and change of clothes. But with some people, body or breath odor is a persistent, chronic problem… one which can indicate a serious health condition.

Chronic body odor can stem from constipation, allowing bacteria and toxins to overload the intestinal tract. The excess poison is dumped into the bloodstream then leached out from the sweat glands near the skin’s surface, creating a constant, foul body odor. Eventually, this condition can lead to serious illness.

Taking Herb-Lax, EZ-Gest and fiber-rich Life Shake for better elimination, and Alfalfa Complex and Zinc for their odor-neutralizing effect, is a great solution. Then, switch to a better diet for long-term health benefits.

For bathing, use Meadow Blend Soap-Free Cleansing Bars or Revitalize Body Wash. And of course, Shaklee offers aluminum-free Protect Deodorant to neutralize underarm odor naturally. This arrowroot and zinc-based deodorant with charcoal neutralizes odor and absorbs wetness,

Shaklee Body Protect Deodorant

Director of North America Training Haley Jensen takes you through a preview and training for Shaklee Body Protect Deodorant:

  • How it works
  • The new formulation
  • The differences between a natural deodorant vs. antiperspirant
  • What makes Protect Deodorant different
  • And how to start promoting and selling this new product!

Stinky clothes?

If odors cling to your clothes because they are not being thoroughly cleaned during washing (often the case with residue-laden commercial laundry products), try switching to Get Clean Fresh Laundry products, adding some Nature Bright Laundry Booster and Stain Remover. For heavy odors in clothes, add 1/4 cup of Basic-G+ to the wash water. Clothes will come out thoroughly clean and odor-free instead of perfumey and full of fillers and detergent residue.
