“The effect the years have upon you can easily be prevented. Man cannot live forever, of course, but he can live free from pain and discomfort… IF he will provide the natural nutritional substances necessary to keep his body in good repair.”
~ Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee, Sr.
Your miraculous heart…
Dr. Shaklee stated in A Study Course in Nutrition, “Your heart is just an automatic, muscular, pressure pump. Its sole duty is to pump the blood to all parts of the body. The marvelous thing about this pressure-pump is that it never takes time off from its work. Simple though the mechanics of that work may be, the welfare of every cell in the body is dependent upon a continuous blood supply. The heart NEVER alters its muscular activity. Its action is always the same. Only the speed varies.
“There are about 1-1/2 gallons of blood in the average human body, and the heart circulates that amount throughout the body every 60 seconds. This means that your heart pumps over 2000 gallons of blood every day of your life! And all this work must be performed without a single minute lost in “closed down for repairs”.
YOU, and you ALONE, are responsible for the number of times your heart is going to have the strength to pump life-giving blood throughout your body.”
“Sticky blood” and garlic…
Many people who have a heart attack or stroke are so stricken because their blood becomes “sticky,” that is, the platelets tend to clump together to form a clot which breaks loose and lodges in a critical artery, cutting off blood flow to the heart or brain.
Studies suggest that a compound in garlic, called ajoene, helps to prevent this clotting. While research is ongoing, taking Garlic Complex daily is a wise choice to make, especially if you have a family history of cardiovascular disease.
The story of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)…
First discovered in 1957, few “nutrients” have faced more controversy than Coenzyme Q10! Not technically a vitamin, Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an enzyme, a substance that enhances the action of other enzymes in facilitating the millions of chemical reactions occurring in the body. An enzyme is a protein that, while remaining unchanged itself, catalyzes chemical changes in other substances.
What caused the controversy that originally surrounded CoQ10? While the subject of many impressive studies in Japan and Europe (where it is routinely used in the treatment of heart disease, especially congestive heart failure) in the United States it was, at best, almost completely ignored by the American medical community, and at worst, considered a worthless product. But now, the US scientific community knows better, and CoQ10 has taken its rightful place as an invaluable aid to preventative health!
A compound found in every cell in the body except red blood cells, CoQ10 has been described as a biochemical spark plug. Peter Mitchess, Ph.D, won the Nobel Prize in chemistry when he discovered CoQ10 and its role in the energy metabolism of cells in the body. CoQ10 is a naturally occurring substance that our body produces. It is instrumental in turning oxygen into pure energy and is also a uniquely powerful antioxidant – more powerful than vitamin E!
According to Richard Firshein, D.O., in his book The Nutraceutical Revolution, “Like vitamin E, CoQ10 is astoundingly helpful in treating and preventing all kinds of cardiovascular problems, from arrythmias to heart attacks, and even congestive heart failure.”
Karl Folkers, a scientist at the University of Texas at Austin, is the father of CoQ10 research, and for the past 20 years he has consistently proven in dozens of groundbreaking studies that CoQ10 protects the heart from failure by keeping its energy levels high.
But this nutraceutical doesn’t just keep the heart pumping. Through its profound energizing ability, CoQ10 can help treat illnesses as diverse as diabetes, chronic lung disease, and gum disease. One study even shows that CoQ10 can reduce tumors associated with breast cancer. For those who are in good health, CoQ10 can improve fitness by increasing exercise endurance.
More about your heart from Dr. Shaklee…
The next time you seat yourself at the dinner table, just ask yourself this question: “Does this food contain ALL of the nutritional elements necessary to keep my heart functioning in a normal manner?”
Ask the exact same question concerning the nutritional elements necessary for the normal function of every single one of [your] other organs, glands and tissue structures. Their health, strength and vitality depend upon your judgment of food values, too.
Why Choose CoQHeart?
CoQHeart is clinically proven to give you unprecedented bioavailability of CoQ10. It’s up to 500% more bioavailable than any solid form and up to 333% more bioavailable than other soft gels. It has a 33% greater absorption rate than the leading bioavailability-enhanced soft gel.
The high bioavailability of CoQHeart means you take less but get more. This clinically proven super-enhanced absorption is the result of a patented technology… exclusive to Shaklee… using all-natural ingredients.
CoQHeart combines CoQ10 with Resveratrol, which contains strong antioxidant properties proven to help prevent LDL oxidation and facilitate blood flow. Resveratrol is one of the key beneficial compounds found in red wine.
CoQHeart helps produce energy in each of your cells… particularly in your heart and major organs.
What should I do first, Dr. Shaklee?
If you were going to refurnish your home, what would you do first? You would clean house and get rid of the trash. That is exactly what you should do before you start to “refurnish” your body with [superior nutrition.]
A healthy tissue cell cannot exist in the midst of disease-laden waste. It is surprising to see the amount of waste material that may have accumulated in the sewage system of your body… not only in the bowels, but in the lymphatic drainage system and in the blood stream, itself. ALL of this accumulated waste must be washed away FIRST for optimum results.
This common-sense approach to the job gives you the best opportunity to achieve rapid nutritional health of tissue cells.
To achieve gentle, yet effective detoxing, start with the 7-Day Healthy Cleanse Program.
Want to make short work of laundry day? Want the cleanest clothes in town without using harsh chemical detergents and bleaches that damage clothes and harm the environment? Want your clothes to stay looking as good as the day you bought them… for years after they should be ready for the ragbag? Do you want all of this… while you’re saving money, too?
Welcome to Get Clean Laundry!
These hard-working, yet gentle products from Shaklee can save you so much time, space in your cupboard, and money over other products. Here’s how laundry day stacks up with Shaklee:
Pre-treat tough stains
Once you’ve sorted white from colored fabrics, delicate items from sturdier towels, sheets, jeans, etc., it’s time to pre-spot stubborn grease, dirt, food and grime stains. Use Basic H2 diluted by about half with water, in a squeeze bottle to squirt on the soiled area. Some Shaklee people save empty Desert Wind Deodorant containers, pop the ball off, wash it out, then refill it with diluted Basic H2, replace the ball and use it to pre-spot clothes. It delivers the Shaklee pre-spotter exactly where you want it! Let the pre-spotted clothes sit for a few minutes to “loosen” the stain before washing.
Get Clean laundry “basics”
Next… pick your product! For those who suffer from allergies, chemical sensitivities, or just prefer no fragrance, the choice is Fresh Laundry Concentrate Fragrance Free (liquid or powder). Both formulas offer powerful cleaning performance free of fragrance, dyes, and masking agents (chemicals added to products to mask or hide the smell of ingredients). Fresh Laundry Free is truly fragrance-free, and has been shown in tests to be equivalent in cleaning power to leading brands. And of course, it’s biodegradable, like all Get Clean products.
If fragrance is not an issue, try Fresh Laundry Concentrate (liquid or powder). With a light, natural fragrance, that leaves your laundry smelling like a spring breeze, Fresh Laundry Concentrate contains no phosphates, borates, blueing or any harsh or toxic chemicals. It’s gentle to clothes, the washing machine, water pipes… and your skin.
Whiten and brighten
If you wish, you can add some Nature Bright Laundry Booster to the wash water. It works with Fresh Laundry or Fresh Laundry Free to give you the cleanest, whitest laundry without bleach!
And so soft, too
Want fluffy, soft, wrinkle-free clothes? Add a little Soft Fabric Concentrate to the wash water, the rinse water, or or throw a Soft Fabric Dryer Sheet into the dryer. Your clothes will come out so-o-o soft!
Get Clean costs less!
You can do a load of laundry, whiten and soften it for less than it would cost to use harsher commercial products. And . . . the environment is safer for everyone each time you (and those you know) use Get Clean. So you’ll not only have the cleanest clothes in town, you’ll have the cleanest conscience, as well!
