Welcome Friends

I want to share with you a wonderful home business that has allowed me to stay home with my 2yr old son. As a Shaklee Independent Distributor, I have gained the financial freedom to be home with my child, while helping families live healthier lives. Shaklee is the #1 natural nutrition company in the United States. Shaklee is strong, doing great and growing as we offer products that people want and continue to use during this economic downturn. We have grown in every recession since the company was founded in 1956 and now is no different. We are growing and showing people how to SAVE money and how to EARN money now.

Some of you may know Shaklee from its 50yr history of safe, natural nutrition and household cleaning products. Shaklee has been rejuvenated over the last 4 years by a fantastic new CEO who has brought the products much more into the public eye to receive public acclaim on the Oprah Winfrey show, Rachel Ray, The Today Show and many other forums. It's also interesting to note that Shaklee products are used to clean the Biosphere 2 Project in Arizona, and the nutritional products are used by the US Ski Team and many other elite athletes, as well as by NASA astronauts.

Would you or someone you know be interested in learning what a plan to earn money in Shaklee would look like? How it works? How quickly you can expect to earn? Would you like to learn how to earn enough money to cover a car payment, your rent or mortgage?

Currently we are building a Bay Area Chapter of Project MAHMA (Moms At Home Making a Difference), and I would love the chance to share the Shaklee Opportunity with anyone who is open-minded to the possibility of running a rewarding flexible and fulfilling part-time or full-time business with plenty of time for their family. Thank you for looking at my blog and exploring this opportunity a bit more; maybe you'll find that it's a good fit for you!

If you are interested in taking a few minutes to chat, please see the Contact Me section of this blog. We can set a time for a short conversation for me to give you some details. If you are not interested for yourself, please take a few minutes and think of someone who might be able to benefit and pass the message on.

Here's a bit of my story:

Some of us know what it feels like to carry the weight of the world on our shoulders as we try to grow the healthiest baby we possibly can. I mean, how can little Susie or little Johnny grow up to be the president of the United States if he or she is not getting all she needs from her parents?! We, the parents, are the garden in which our child is growing. Whether he's in the womb, or in our loving arms, his health is in our hands both by our example and by what we provide for him.

With this in mind, I went looking for products that were proven SAFE, highly-effective and economical. This search led me to Shaklee. Shaklee's products are backed by over 70 published clinical studies in peer-reviewed journals, and they do more quality control tests than anyone in this industry, with 350 contaminant test conducted on EACH raw ingredient going into a product. When I started my research, I wanted to know that the money I spent on my son's DHA supplement, or our multivitamins, was well-spent and that the products were proven safe and did what they said they would do. With Shaklee, I had an independent distributor with 25yrs experience holding my hand, counseling me as to what products to use for my family, and working with me until we found the right solutions to our health concerns.

Apart from this resource, there were numerous lectures and literature available from many renowned pediatricians and doctors who endorse Shaklee products. This is why I decided to become a distributor myself. I already have my own success stories, and simply by using the products and sharing my excitement and successes with others, I have started my own business! My husband has lost 30lbs on Shaklee's Cinch Inch Loss Plan and has received great relief from his allergies. I have marked improvement in my digestion and hormonal fluctuations, and my son knocks out a cold in 3 days, on the rare occasion that he does get sick.

Thanks so much for your time; I look forward to hearing from you!

Vivix - Revolutionary Cellular Anti-Aging Tonic

Exclusive to Shaklee
The most complex product in Shaklee history, Vivix took years to develop—first to create and isolate a unique profile of polyphenols shown in laboratory studies to fight cellular aging, then to develop a patent-pending extraction process to harness the polyphenol profile of one of the key ingredients, and finally to secure the entire output from the largest and best growers in the world. These comprehensive product development steps make these cellular anti-aging benefits available exclusively to you.*

In laboratory studies, Vivix™ ingredients have been shown to impact the four key mechanisms of cellular aging.*

3,000 glasses of red wine
A 30-day supply of Vivix delivers the equivalent amount of resveratrol found in 3,000 glasses of red wine. One daily serving delivers the equivalent amount of resveratrol provided in 100 glasses of red wine.

10X more powerful
In laboratory studies, Vivix ingredients have been shown to be 10 times more powerful than resveratrol alone at slowing the formation of AGE proteins.*

"Extra caution is in order for kids because they receive greater exposures by weight than adults to contaminants in air, water, food, and everyday products. In addition, their immature metabolism and organ systems are typically less capable of fending off chemical assaults. Subtle damage to developing bodies that does not trigger immediate health effects may lead to disease later in life." Environmental Working Group

As early as 1960, Shaklee made one of the first biodegradable household cleaners ever; and Shaklee was the first company in the world to obtain Climate Neutral™ certification and totally offset their CO2 emissions, resulting in a net zero impact on the environment.

Why Food Supplements?

"By the time that processed foods reach you, they may have been shipped and stored, trimmed, blanched, frozen, canned, condensed, dehydrated, pasteurized, sterilized, smoked, cured, milled, roasted, cooked, toasted or puffed. What's left of their composition after any combination of those tortures is then liable to be further stolen by heat, light, oxygen, oxalates, anti-vitamins, acidity, alkalinity, metal catalysts, enzymes, and irradiation.” (Cheraskin et al. 1983:29)

"The next logical step from such radical adulteration of the bounty of the earth is to fix things so that you can bypass Mother Nature--and the farmers trying to make a living tending her--entirely. According to the United States General Accounting Office, almost 80% of the additives in foods are cosmetic. Instead of the bright yellow color and tangy-sour taste of lemonade, we get sodium caseinate and artificial flavoring; instead of the deep ebony color and rich dark flavor of real chocolate pudding, we get cotton-based synthetics; instead of creamy milk and smooth ice cream in our shakes, we get fat solids. An ever increasing proportion of the food we eat is no longer even food but is now a conglomerate of high-priced chemistry experiments designed to simulate food.” (Sitt 1981: 72)

Shaklee's supplements are nothing short of living food; they are high-powered food tablets that your body knows how to use. Shaklee's supplements are different; they make people feel better. The supplements contain enzymes that are kept alive as they are extracted from the plants. The supplements provide nutrients in amounts relevant to the body, in a form that can be readily absorbed, with no hidden fillers, artificial colors or flavors. Most vitamins in supplements are petroleum extracts, coal tar derivatives, and chemically processed sugar (plus sometimes industrially processed fish oils), with other acids and industrial chemicals (such as formaldehyde) used to process them. These can not replace natural vitamin activities.

One key part of a basic Shaklee nutrition program is a protein powder. It's important to realize the importance of high quality protein. It's not actually the protein that is so important but the amino acid content of the protein that is so significant. There are nine essential amino acids that make up protein and each of these nine amino acids must be consumed every day in different amounts to start the process that builds the 22-life support system for optimum health. It takes so much of certain vitamins and minerals to digest and utilize our food. If they are in short supply the body must rob them from the storage cells, which is constantly depleting our bodies. The enzymes in the protein powder open the door to the cells and allow the body to fully utilize the nutrients that you take in from your food and supplements.

The key is that protein cannot be heated over 110 degrees or the amino acid activity is lost and the enzymes are no longer alive. Shaklee has a protein that is miles ahead of any competitor. The product is alive and bio-available to the body in about 35 minutes! Shaklee uses only non-genetically modified (GMO) soy protein certified through an Identity Preservation Program (IPP). This program assures that the soy we use is tightly monitored and controlled from planting and harvesting to processing.

Has the time come to change our eating habits?

How to Disinfect Any Type of Toy Safely

I've been asked this question a lot, and so I've decided to post it here. I was so relieved to find Shaklee’s Basic G germicide, a non-toxic alternative to bleach, for disinfecting my son's toys. It’s highly concentrated, so it’s very economical, one quart makes up to 64 gallons, and it's also EPA registered. It kills 99.9% of E. coli and Salmonella bacteria, as well as over 40 other microbes (bacteria, fungi and viruses.)

To sterilize toys, use your spray bottle of Basic G (1/2 tsp per 16oz bottle) and spray your toys, and let it sit about 5 minutes then rinse. OR, soak them in warm water with Basic G (1 TBS per gallon of water), then rinse.

For washable toys, you can add ½ tsp Basic G in with the laundry detergent, (1TBS for regular clothes load, if someone has been sick.)

You can use 1-2 drops of Basic H2 concentrated cleaner and hot water for the teething toys...soak them in a big bowl, then rinse with water.

Basic G is great for tubs, sinks, diaper pails and other places like trash cans that need disinfecting.

Shaklee also makes Basic G Wipes for convenience. You would just wipe down the toys and then wipe them with a wet towel.
