Winter grays got you down?
I know it’s really wearing on me.
I can occasionally feel blue for what appears to be no apparent reason.
Or sometimes I just can feel blah.
Usually some sunlight and warmer temperatures snap me out of it.
But some people need a little extra help. Not enough to necessarily see a doctor and go on harsh and sometimes dangerous antidepressants – they’re not that bad. They just don’t feel as upbeat as they usually do. It often times may just mean that stress has taken a toll on them and winter time with its lack of sunlight doesn’t help any. In comes MoodLift. See below on how MoodLift may be able to help you with the winter time blahs.

MoodLift® Complex*
Natural Help for a Positive Mental Outlook*

Everyone wants to feel upbeat and enjoy life to the fullest. Yet periods of sadness are an inherent part of the human experience. Life’s events and ongoing stresses can trigger melancholy...and sometimes people feel “blue” for no apparent reason. Many factors contribute to maintaining normal emotional equilibrium, including brain chemistry. Science suggests that an imbalance of neurotransmitters such as serotonin can contribute to the kind of blue mood that goes beyond just having a bad day.

MoodLift Complex provides dietary support for normal feelings of well-being with a unique formula of St. John’s Wort and other herbal and nutritional ingredients known to play an important role in neural transmission and mood regulation.*

Clinical research shows that St. John’s Wort provides dietary support for a positive mental outlook after four to six weeks of use.* Inositol complements the activity of St. John’s Wort by playing a role in the proper trans-mission of nerve signals.*

Just one serving of Moodlift Complex* a day contains 900 mg of St. John’s Wort extract, equivalent to 2.7 mg of hypericin.


MoodLift Complex also contains 1 g of inositol to support proper neural transmission,* plus a uniquely enhanced proprietary blend with extracts of Eleutherococcus senticosus and green oat extract.

Who Might Benefit from
MoodLift Complex*?

• Adults who want to nutritionally support a sunny
mental outlook in the face of modern life’s ongoing
challenges and stresses.

• People who are interested in a natural, gentle way
to maintain emotional equilibrium.

• People interested in nutritional support during
periods of emotional stress related to life events.

Try MoodLift Complex today for a brighter outlook on tomorrow.



Warning: Those taking prescription antidepressants and other prescription drugs should consult a physician before taking St. John’s Wort, as should pregnant or nursing women, or children. MoodLift Complex* is not intended for severe depression.

OmegaGuard Dietary Supplement

Ultra-pure, full-spectrum potency of seven omega-3s

The Challenge - According to the Centers for Disease Control and the American Heart Association (AHA), heart disease — specifically coronary artery disease — is still the number one cause of death of men and women in the United States. And while it was once considered a man's disease, today more women than men die from heart disease. And unfortunately, at least 100 million Americans have one or more risk factors for heart disease.

To reduce the risk of heart disease, the AHA recommends eating two servings of fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids each week. But most Americans eat fish only three times per month or less. Moreover, there are growing concerns about unsafe levels of contaminants such as mercury and lead that are now commonly found in many fish.

OmegaGuard - Ultra-pure OmegaGuard, the world’s finest fish oil that delivers a full spectrum of seven omega-3s including EPA, DHA, ALA, and more.

• Research shows that high levels of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may:
- Help reduce the risk of heart disease †(3)

- Help retain healthy triglyceride levels *(5)
- Help retain normal blood pressure *(4)
- Support brain (2) , visual (1) , and joint function *(6)
• Over 4,500 research studies on omega-3 fatty acids' effects on overall health have been conducted in the last 25 years.
• The average American intake of EPA and DHA is only 0.1 to 0.2 g/day, even though the American Heart Association recommends at least two fish meals per week to provide an
intake of about 0.3 to 0.5 g/day of EPA and DHA.
• Most American diets provide more than ten times as much omega-6 than omega-3 fatty acids,
even though there is general scientific agreement that individuals should consume more
omega-3 and less omega-6 fatty acids to promote good health.

Research shows that high levels of omega-3 fatty acids promote cardiovascular health and help
retain normal blood pressure and triglyceride levels.*


THE SHAKLEE DIFFERENCE – THE NEW STANDARD IN PURITY AND FULL-SPECTRUM POTENCY

• Purity
- Ultra-pure, pharmaceutical-grade fish oil made with a proprietary triple
molecular distillation process. Concentrates beneficial omega-3s
while helping remove contaminants such as lead, arsenic,
mercury, cadmium, dioxins, and PCBs
- Suppresses formation of dangerous trans fats for a
healthier fish oil
- Minimizes odor and fishy aftertaste
- Uses no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives
• Potency
- A full spectrum of seven naturally occuring omega-3 fatty acids including EPA, DHA,
ALA, and more
- Contains higher levels of EPA and DHA than leading brands

WHO MAY BENEFIT FROM OMEGAGUARD?


• Anyone who doesn’t consume the recommended two servings of fish per week
• Anyone interested in promoting cardiovascular health
• Anyone who is concerned with maintaining healthy brain, visual, and joint functions*

The Natural Opportunity

Shaklee offers the perfect opportunity for moms (and dads) who want to design their own lives, earning an income while making the world a better place.

Why Do I Take Shaklee Supplements?

Many people have asked why I take vitamin supplements and why Shaklee’s.

The reason I take vitamin supplements is because even though I try and eat right, it is near impossible. The guideline is to follow the Food Guide Pyramid. The food guide pyramid is good to follow, but extremely hard to follow on an everyday basis. Why? Well, I’m a realist. Trying to find fresh, organic whole foods in the Midwest in the middle of winter that has all the nutrients I need is virtually impossible. Even if I could, I doubt I could afford it. I try and buy fresh, organic food when I can and when it’s on sale, but I can’t do so every day. It’s just too expensive.

Then there’s the fact I admit I don’t live like a purist. I eat refined sugar, though not as much as some. I eat red meat, though again not as much as I used to. I do try to eat right most of the time, but hey I sometimes eat a hotdog or two with chips and a pop too. In fact this morning I decided I really wanted a Mountain Dew. I was fatigued from too little sleep. No surprise then later when I nursed my son and tried to get him to lay down for a nap he didn’t want to! So see, I’m not perfect and I’m not going to “preach” to you either. I just try and do the best I can and fill in the gaps with good supplementation.

I also live in the city and not on the farm. Factor in the many other reasons and that is why I take vitamin supplements. Notice that they are called “supplements”. Vitamins are designed to supplement a good diet, not replace it. You can’t eat donuts and drink pop exclusively and expect to be healthy.

Now, the reason I take Shaklee supplements is because in my opinion they are the best. No other company can match their extensive scientific testing and research. I believe no one can match their quality control measures and their high standard of manufacturing. To learn more on how Shaklee goes above and beyond check out their Health Sciences information page.

I have come back from some pretty serious health challenges and I didn’t start to improve until I started a vitamin regimen of Shaklee’s supplements. I no longer take any pain medication and I continue to improve my health through better eating habits when I can, exercising and supplementing my diet with the best.

Everyone who has tried Shaklee’s supplements has said they noticed a dramatic improvement in their health and the way they feel. Try them for yourself and see if you don’t see a dramatic improvement. They come with a 100% money back guarantee so you have nothing to lose and good health to gain.

CoQHeart - Strengthens the Heart Muscle.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) supports energy production in your cells. Studies show that as we age we have less and less of it in our body. CoQ10 is especially important to heart health. A healthy heart, which never stops to rest, relies on CoQ10's energy support.*

The uniqueness of Shaklee CoQHeart comes from its highly bioavailable delivery. Your body more readily accepts the softgel delivery form used in CoQHeart than it does solid powders. So you can get more out of your supplement.

Also included in CoQHeart's combination of ingredients is the powerful antioxidant resveratrol - believed to be the most beneficial antioxidant compound in red wine.* CoQHeart contains 640 mcg of resveratrol, equivalent to the amount of resveratrol in one glass of red wine.


Cholesterol Regulation Complex - A Natural Approach to Cholesterol Management
Take charge of your cholesterol before it becomes a problem, with Shaklee Cholesterol Regulation Complex.*

Cholesterol Regulation Complex can help you retain normal cholesterol levels, along with a low-fat diet and exercise. Its blend of natural ingredients includes a unique compound that inhibits the absorption of dietary cholesterol and has been shown to increase HDL ("good") cholesterol. And, Cholesterol Regulation Complex does not interrupt the production of coenzyme Q10, a nutrient important to heart health that helps cells produce energy.


Fiber Plan - The Fiber You Need on a "Regular" Basis.

Shaklee Fiber Plan products provide soluble fiber from psyllium seed husk to help retain normal cholesterol levels by its ability to bind cholesterol, preventing absorption.* It contains insoluble fiber as well, which promotes regularity by its ability to absorb water.


Garlic - Helps Retain Normal Blood Pressure.

Studies show that garlic promotes cardiovascular health by helping to retain normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels when used as part of a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet. Garlic Complex also provides the antioxidant properties of spearmint and rosemary.

You know what to do, so what are you waiting for?

Care for your heart, love your heart and share your heart.

PLEASANTON, Calif., Jan 26, 2009 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Shaklee Corporation, the leading natural nutrition company in the United States, is the official nutrition supplier for the U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding throughout their training for the 2010 Games in Vancouver, continuing a relationship that began in 1980. Founded in 1956, Shaklee has been supporting elite athletes for decades -- more than 54 gold medals have been awarded to Shaklee-powered world-class athletes.

"We currently use these products to enhance the hydration status and energy requirements of our athletes' demanding training schedules and busy lifestyles," says Troy Flanagan, Director of Sport Science for the U.S. Ski and Snowboarding Association, the national governing body for the U.S. ski and snowboarding teams. "Shaklee nutritional supplements are the only choice for us and are proving to be critical to our preparation for the 2010 Games!"

Flanagan says Shaklee products are instrumental in allowing the teams to perform at a high level in very rigorous conditions.
"U.S. Ski Team athletes travel four to five months straight each year, flying to winter conditions in many different countries throughout the world. Shaklee's NutriFeron(R) helps boost their immune systems* as they push through jet lag, drastic temperature changes, tough training, and the stress of competition," he says.
The U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding use a broad assortment of Shaklee supplements, including Vitalizer for overall health and wellness, NutriFeron and Defend & Resist Complex for immune support, Cinch(R) for healthy weight management, Shaklee Performance(R) for hydration and endurance, Physique(R) for post workout recovery, Joint Health Complex for healthy joints, Joint & Muscle Pain Cream for after those grueling workouts, and many others.*

Shaklee products are supported by over 90 Shaklee peer-reviewed scientific papers and are available only through Shaklee Distributors.
"At the U.S. Ski and Snowboarding Association (USSA), we make sure that the supplements that our athletes competing in the 2010 Games are taking are extremely safe and reliable," Flanagan says. "That's why USSA athletes are only provided with Shaklee products, which are manufactured to the highest standards."
Shaklee is proud to be the official nutritional sponsor of the U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding, a relationship that began over 29 years ago and has since provided the nutritional fuel that helped support the teams in winning 10 medals in the 2006 Winter Games in Turin, Italy, and is currently helping to power the ski team and snowboarders in preparation for the 2010 Games in Vancouver.
