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.

It’s Over

It’s over; the first 100 years of Shaklee–over!

It’s beginning, the next 100 years of Shaklee–begins!

What happened at the 100 Year Global Conference? Stories about:  moms, dads, children, a nobel prize winner, an astronaut, 3 olympians, but mostly everyday people like you and me who were willing to make a difference in their own lives and in the lives of others. And of course. . .new products and new technology. We heard from:

~ many worn out moms and dads before Shaklee nutrition

~ many sick children who improved greatly with a couple of simple changes

~ about a nobel prize winner who discovered that longer telomeres help us live longer and thattelomere2 people who have taken Shaklee have telomeres at age 81 the same as most 41 year olds.

~ Olympians who depend on Shaklee products for strength, endurance, and great nutrition without worry about the inevitable drug testing.

~ couples and singles whose lives were totally changed because of Shaklee. . .now out of debt and out of the Dr. office.

Next time I’ll share more about the NEW products and technology. Just a hint. . .The Shaklee Life Plan is the best most comprehensive nutrition system in the world. And we can legally say that!

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.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Perhaps you know of someone who suffers from rheumatoid arthritis. How I wish VIVIX had been around for a cousin of mine. Perhaps her story could have ended like Sandy’s. Sandy writes:

“Hi  Shaklee friends and others,
I just wanted to let you know that I went to the Rheumatologist Monday and I no longer have rheumatoid arthritis!!!  The doctor based the new diagnosis on labs and her evaluation of me.
So for any skeptics out there, say what you might about Shaklee supplements, but my new results happened within the first year on Shaklee Vivix!  I also think that increasing my Vitamin D to 5000-8000 mg per day was a huge part of it too. I do have regular Osteoarthritis (probably mostly from years of sugar abuse?) ha ha. 
I have sent out many informational emails on Vivix as well as many other Shaklee products, but Vivix is actually part of a study of a Biochemist/scientist from London who is getting the Nobel Prize for this work. It is a very powerful antioxidant as well as an anti inflammatory.  I got rid of my pesky Sciatica 3 years ago after the 2nd week of starting Vivix!!!  
vivixVIVIX repairs and protects our DNA. VIVIX is great for  inflammatory caused diseases which have had DNA disruption like arthritis, heart disease, vascular disease, diabetes, auto immune diseases, dementia and Alzheimer’s, and ALL cancers!!  
Best of Health!    Now I can switch insurance plans again with NO Rheumatoid diagnosis!!!!  Sandy”
Thanks, Sandy, for sharing your experience. VIVIX  helped Henry with his inflammation problem too, when doctors were at a loss about what to do for him. From 2000 – 2007, Henry had such bad inflammation each winter that he could hardly walk or move at all. The first time this happened we went straight to the doctor. After 4 days in the hospital and every test the doctors could think to order, they actually told him not to come back because they didn’t know what to do for him. In 2008 VIVIX was introduced to the Shaklee product line. Henry has had a teaspoon of VIVIX every day and not another attack. What a blessing!
