“It’s not so much what you eat, it’s what you don’t eat. The body can throw off a lot of worthless junk that one might eat, but it cannot get values you don’t put in your mouth!*”

~ Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee, Sr.

*from his 1973 TV interview

Targeted supplement combos…

One thing that Shaklee incorporates into every aspect of their business and every product they produce is… synergy. According to, “Synergy is the interaction of elements that when combined produce a total effect that is greater than the sum of the individual elements.” In other words, synergy is the creation of a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Shaklee is successful because of synergy. Dr. Shaklee’s extensive knowledge led him to meld nature and science into truly unique products that work. He created a company dedicated to research and scientific integrity and marketed those products by engaging health-minded people from all over the world. Shaklee is a model of synergism… many parts multiplied many-fold.

Shaklee products also model synergism by working together to produce spectacular results. This can best be experienced through some of the supplement combinations that address specific health challenges. Read on to find out more…

Start with this combo…

From almost the beginning, Shaklee has offered a guaranteed nutrition program consisting of a multivitamin/multi-mineral and a high quality protein. That is, “Take these two products for 30 days and you’ll feel better or your money back!”

Today, Shaklee still offers a number of multi and protein products that can be combined to produce noticeable health results in just a short time. Vita-Lea, Vitalizer or Life Strip can be taken with Energizing Soy Protein, or Life Shake for better health in 30 days… guaranteed!

Supplement combos for your heart & blood vessels…

Did you know that:

Heart disease is still the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups in the US.
One person dies every 37 seconds in the US from cardiovascular disease.
About 647,000 Americans die from heart disease each year… that’s 1 in every 4 deaths.
Heart disease costs the United States about $219 billion each year from 2014 to 2015, including health care services, medicines, and lost productivity.*

Don’t become a heart disease statistic. Protect your heart and cardiovascular system with some common sense action steps:

Improve your diet

Cut down on saturated fats, fast foods, sweets and sodas. Eat more fruits and vegetables (especially leafy greens), whole grains and seeds, beans and legumes.

Move every day

Next to improving your diet, regular exercise is one of the best ways to increase HDL “good” cholesterol.

Add supplements

If your cholesterol numbers are in… or approaching… the danger zone, take:

SmartHeart™ Cholesterol Regimen:

____ Cholesterol Reduction Complex**… Delivers a powerful blend of plant sterols and stanols that may reduce the risk of heart disease by helping to lower cholesterol.
____ OmegaGuard**… Ultra pure, pharmaceutical grade Omega-3s to help reduce the risk of heart disease
____ CoQHeart**… CoQ10 and resveratrol supports energy production in the heart and promotes healthy arteries

For healthy blood pressure, try:

The Shaklee Stress Combo…

It’s a fact: Stress is a part of everyday life! Stress gobbles up vast amounts of nutrients needed for critical functions. So what can you do? Try the Shaklee Stress Combo:

____ B-Complex… a perfect balance of all eight essential B vitamins to support energy, cardiovascular health, and cell renewal.
____ Iron Plus C Complex… for maximum iron absorption. One tablet has more iron than one pound of beef, seven ounces of calf’s liver, or eight ounces of oysters.
____ Sustained Release Vita-C… provides a steady release of vitamin C throughout the day.
____ Zinc Complex… a trigger for over 200 different enzymes that are present in virtually every cell of the body; helps synthesize protein and DNA, supports energy production, a healthy metabolism, thyroid function, immunity, and memory.
____ Stress Relief Complex… produces a calm, more relaxed state without causing drowsiness.

A combo for an agile brain…

Are you constantly forgetting words, appointments or where you put your keys? Is your brain in a fog? Does concentration feel like a lost art? Do you ever feel like you’re losing your mind?

You can keep your brain healthy. Take these:

____ MindWorks… has been shown in three clinical studies and dozens of laboratory studies to immediately enhance mental sharpness and focus and protect against age-related mental decline.
____ Mental Acuity Plus… an exclusive formula that contains ginkgo, bilberry, hawthorn, and B vitamins to enhance memory and decision making.
____ Lecithin… contains choline which the National Academy of Sciences has established supports brain, liver, cardiovascular, and reproductive health. Choline is a component of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is involved in the transmission of messages in the brain and nervous system.

Healthy gut combo…

If you need to heal your digestion, try these:

____ Optiflora DI Probiotic*
____ Liver DTX Complex*
____ Alfalfa Complex*
____ Herb-Lax*
____ EZ-Gest
____ Stomach Soothing Complex
____ Fiber Plan Tablets
____ Fiber Plan Powder

*Part of Shaklee’s 7-Day Healthy Cleanse Kit

The “Mighty Bones & Joints” Combo…

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, but alas… it’s also the most difficult to absorb.

Because of this conundrum, calcium is the essential mineral most likely to be in short supply, especially by women.

Ninety-nine percent of the body’s calcium is found in the bones and teeth. The remaining one percent is needed for many critical functions: normal blood clotting, healthy muscle function, nervous system transmissions, and the secretion of hormones. Those counting calories and watching their cholesterol, as well as people with milk allergies, routinely avoid calcium-rich products. The oxalic acid in certain healthy foods such as spinach, chard, beet greens, and rhubarb, and the phytic acid in the bran of whole grains may limit the body’s absorption of calcium contained in these foods. In addition, a lack of essential nutrients such as vitamin D, as well as insufficient exercise may also decrease calcium absorption. When adequate calcium is not ingested, the body takes calcium from the bones.

To safeguard your body’s framework, take:

Chewable Cal Mag Plus

1,300 mg of elemental calcium, with 125 mg of magnesium, and 750 IU of vitamin D to stimulate calcium absorption, this synergistic blend may reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Also helps reduce PMS symptoms, retain normal blood pressure, and promote colon health.


Five small, easy-to-swallow caplets provide 100% DV of nature’s most concentrated and easily absorbed sources of elemental calcium along with magnesium to help strengthen bones. Also delivers vitamins D and K, zinc, copper, and manganese.

A cancer prevention combo…

What could be better than a cure for cancer? Not getting it at all! While there are no guarantees, there are things you can do every day to lower your risk of getting cancer. Massive research, strong scientific evidence and innovative medical advances, along with the public realization that diet plays a powerful role in cancer prevention, suggest that the “cure” might be close.

In the meantime, taking certain supplements can help your body destroy cells that could become cancerous:

____ OmegaGuard… reduces the risk of certain cancers
____ CarotoMax… protects against free radical damage
____ Vita-E Complex… with selenium, is a potent antioxidant
____ Sustained Release Vita-C… strengthens cell membranes
____ Garlic Complex… blocks the activation of cancer- causing substances
____ Liver DTX Complex… helps the liver eliminate toxins
____ Vita-D3… helps prevent certain cancers
____ Chewable Cal Mag Plus… helps lower the risk of colon cancer
____ NutriFeron… increases levels of interferon
____ Vivix… protects and repairs DNA


The combo supplement…

There is one Shaklee supplement that’s almost a combo itself… Alfalfa Complex! In fact, the word alfalfa means “The Father of All Foods.” Why?

Alfalfa contains more protein than corn or wheat; is nature’s richest source of chlorophyll; contains a wealth of enzymes… the catalysts required for food assimilation; provides vitamins A, B, D, E, K and U (the ulcer “cure” vitamin); and has more total food minerals and sub-nutritional trace minerals (including zinc an cobalt) than any other land-grown source.

For superior health, try alfalfa… just be sure it’s Shaklee Alfalfa!
