Age 65. . . Or?

65 year old Bob Ferguson says, ” Age is a very, very relative concept. If we can keep our cells dividing properly, without genetic ‘typos’, through proper, primarily plant based diet, high quality supplementation, exercise, stress management, laughter, music and touch, we can keep rolling along in fine form long past the age when prior generations felt old.”

bobferguson Champion marathoner, Mark Ramirez, who has worked at Shaklee for 43 years, and is a  friend of Bob’s agrees. “Bob, you are amazing. I turn 60 today and feel better on the first day of my 43rd year at Shaklee then I did when I first started Shaklee at 18. It doesn’t happen overnight, it’s like Aristotle says “you are what you repeatedly do – excellence therefore is not an act, it’s a habit”

If you are ready to take better care of yourself, be sure to take high quality antioxidants to ward off free radical damage in your cells. Antioxidants act like the garbage truck in your body to carry off the waste from your cells.

Ready to start a new habit? . . .  pray, read the Bible every day, feed your cells with great food and great supplements, laugh, call a friend, exercise??? At age 66 I feel better than I did at age 35, seems to be a Shaklee trend and it is never too late to start.

Is Eating Right Enough?

Do you ever wonder if it is worth the money to take vitamin supplements? Just the other day I heard a doctor on TV say that it wasn’t necessary to take vitamins if you “eat right.” Is it possible to get all the nutrients we need for a healthy body with today’s American diet? Here are three things to consider.

food affects our bodies2First, it takes a lot of good eating every day to provide our bodies with enough nutrients to feed our trillions of cells properly. 98% of Americans do not eat the recommended seven to nine servings of fruits and vegetables each day. Therefore, we no longer die from infectious diseases like pneumonia and tuberculosis, but instead we are falling apart from within. Heart disease is the cause of 1 in every 4 deaths and did you realize that 80% of all heart disease in women is preventable?  America ranks 7th highest in the world for cancer occurrence. Diabetes plagues 25.8 million children and adults in America and did you know that 90% of all Type 2 diabetes is preventable? Does it look like we are doing a good job of “eating right?”

Second, besides trying to “eat right,” our food is not the same as it was 100 years ago. The Journal of American College of Nutrition stated that a study of 43 crops showed a decline in the nutrient content of up to 38% over the past 50 years. Because of the decline of nutrients in our foods, 90% of Americans fall short in getting essential nutrients in our diets. Just think for a moment. . .did the food you are putting in your grocery cart even exist 50 years ago? So would a supplement help or hurt your body?shakleecover photo2

Third, I don’t think you should take vitamins that are synthetic. Your body (liver) will just have to detoxify them. If you are going to get some extra help feeding your cells, be sure to check if the supplements you are taking meet the following requirements:

~ clinical studies on the ingredients or products

~ natural ingredients on the label–avoid artificial sweeteners, flavors, and preservatives

~  a company that focuses on safety and quality

~ provides an unconditional money-back guarantee

So, if you can “eat right,” knowing that the nutrient content is questionable, and that you are getting a guaranteed supply of essential nutrients every single day, go for it! But if you think your body (cells) need some help with supplements, take some good ones! Remember, each of your cells is made of vitamins, minerals, fats, and proteins, so feed them well.

I Love Chips

lays-classic2Most of you who know me well, know that I love potato chips. Yes, I know they are not good for me and yet I still eat them. The best way for me to stop eating them is to not buy them. Now days I buy them just once in a while. Can anyone identify with this process of justifying some food that you know does not really feed cells but tastes so good?

Another thing, chips are quite expensive even though they are not good for me. If not on sale, my favorite ones cost $4.29; on sale they might be 2/$5.00. That’s a deal but then I have too many to resist!

Some people say Shaklee vitamins are expensive. That depends on what you compare them to.  So here’s the daily cost of a few Shaklee vitamins:

2 Vita Lea       .34/day   

1 B-Complex  .17/day   

1 Vita C          .12/day   

1 Vita E          .29/day    (click on the pictures to find out more)

 20216VitaLeaWOIron2    20194BComplex2

20095vita c2

20112vita e2This simple program costs $.92 a day. 92 cents! 2 Vita Lea is just 34 cents and this is a great place to start if you are not taking vitamins! So here is something good for me, something good for you . . . every day.For less than a dollar a day cells are being fed with great nutrients to go along with our healthier eating choices. Shaklee supplements fill in the gaps when we know we are not eating correctly and not sure how many nutrients are in our good food. It’s a dream of mine to have everyone taking Vita Lea!  

And if you are interested in more protection, including omega 3s, antioxidants, and probiotics, you can get it for less than $2.64/day with Vitalizer. Not too bad compared to the bag of chips and other not so good stuff I am trying to avoid! Here’s one more cost comparison with Shaklee Vitalizer and equivalent quantities of synthetic vitamins from Walgreens and GNC:

Shaklee’s Vitalizer 30 Day Supply

Muti Vitamin, Omega Fish Oil, Vitamin’s A, B, C, D, and E. Plus Pro Biotic.

TOTAL: $79.25 / Autoship $71.32

Walgreens – 30 Day Supply

Centrum Performance Muti: $11.99 X 4 MegaRed Omega Fish Oil: $29.00 X 2 Naturemade Pro Biotic: $11.49 X 1 (quantities to get the equivalent of Vitalizer)

TOTAL: $119.43        SAVE $48.11 with Vitalizer!

GNC – 30 Day Supply

Ultramega Muti Vitamin: $39.99 X 1 Triple Strength Fish Oil: $38.99 X 1 Ultra Pro Biotic: $39.99 X 1

TOTAL: $118.97     SAVE $47.65 with Vitalizer!

Do you think what you are eating impacts how you are feeling? If spending less than a dollar/day gave you more energy, healthier cells, and possibly protected you from serious health issues, would Shaklee supplements be expensive?  So what about you? What do you eat that you realize is not good for you? What changes are you making for prevention?

Sick Care, Health Care

sick careLast night I listened to an amazing story of one of our armed services men who had been healthy, energetic and athletic and then suddenly took a downward spiral. This young man’s health deteriorated so much that he believed he was going to die. He was on huge amounts of medication and yet this was not helping. Too bad he had to wait till he was so desperate before he tried Shaklee. After all, how could a vitamin help and why Shaklee? He would soon find out. If you would like to hear his story please email me and I will send you the link. Just fill in the contact form above.
