FREE Shipping!



We are offering free shipping to our members from now until Dec.31, 2013. Join now to get free shipping and save 15-25% off, we can also show you ways to join for free!

So, you can save $19.95 by using our join free options, you can save 15-25% off of retail, and you can be eligible for free shipping!  

Wow! You can buy everyone something for the holidays and get something for yourself, too!

To celebrate the holidays and to thank you for your business we will be offering free shipping (up to $20) on orders now through December 31, 2013.*

I’m a practical gift giver. I like to give things people can use. Most people do not need more “stuff.” They need things they can use and either would love more of what they already are using or would like to try something new.

If you are getting ready to go shopping for your loved ones, consider giving them the gift of good health. We have amazing products and below are just a few ideas paired with some extras you can throw in to give it more a personal touch without breaking the bank.

For personal care, we offer complete skin care packages, cleansing gels, lotions and more. You could package them in a nice basket with a candle, a favorite cd to listen to while relaxing, a bath puff and maybe even lovely note on how much they deserve a little pampering for all they do. A “take time for yourself” item makes a thoughtful gift not only for the moms in your life, but for teachers, care givers and anyone who you think deserves a little pampering.

We also have wonderful household cleaning and laundry products. You may think that is a strange gift, but to someone who is looking for products to clean with that won’t aggravate their allergies and is environmentally conscious of what they use, then our kits make awesome gifts. They are also great for newlyweds, college students or housewarming gifts. Put them in a pretty waste can with some handy household gadgets and you just gave a very thoughtful and handy gift. Who wouldn’t want something that makes their life a bit easier?

Don’t forget their health. If you know a family whose members always seem to be sick or are too busy to eat right, then give our gifts of good nutrition. We have awesome supplements and immune building products for the whole family. We also have great on-the-go healthy fast food alternatives for the busy family. One of my favorite supplements to give to those who seem extra stressed is our Stress Relief Complex. Awesome product. These actually are great products for those extremely hard to buy for people.

If you just don’t know what to get, contact me and I will be happy to help. I can help you with suggestions on what to give them and help you stay within your budget. Having a free personal shopping assistant is just one extra perk you get with Shaklee.

So try something different this year and give practical, “Thanks, I can really use this!” type of gifts. And we will even go one step further – if they don’t like it and want to return it, we will do that! We will take the item back and either replace or refund it! How’s that for no risk! **

So sit back, relax, think about those you can help this year and avoid the crowds. And save with free shipping!

Warm Wishes,
Julie

Shaklee Cares® and Typhoon Haiyan


Dear Shaklee Family,

We are all tremendously concerned as we witness the plight of those in the Philippines, where so many lives have been devastated by Typhoon Haiyan, a storm of unprecedented magnitude. In addition to the thousands who have tragically perished, an incredible 600,000 or more people remain at risk - homeless, desperate for food, clean water, medical assistance and shelter.  We send our love and prayers to the people of the Philippines, and to their families and friends who grieve and worry here in the States as well.  We want to help in any way that we can.

Shaklee CaresShaklee Cares is working with a US-based partner organization to direct your product donations to those in need in the Philippines.  Because Shaklee products are convenient to transport, easy to dispense and rich in high quality nutrition, they are extremely helpful in situations like this one. 

Listed below are some ways that you can participate in this important relief effort.  I will personally match whatever you contribute today through Sunday, November 17, doubling the impact of your generosity.    

The need may seem overwhelming.  But in Shaklee, we know that the cumulative impact of each of our small, positive actions changes lives, changes communities, and ultimately changes the world.  Thank you for being part of the Shaklee Effect. 
Roger BarnettWarm regards,
Roger Barnett

Steger Arctic Expedition


Since 1985, Shaklee Corporation has been a proud sponsor of Will Steger's expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic. Long before most people were concerned--or even aware--of climate change, Steger, with Shaklee's help, was documenting and educating the world about the need for us to take better care of the earth.

Watch this moving video on Will’s expedition to study the impact we have on the Earth.

I love the comment about how we don’t have to make big sacrifices. We all can just make small changes that together have a huge impact.

Chromium Intake and Type 2 Diabetes


Author: Dr. Stephen Chaney 

A recent meta-analysis combined the data from 61 studies looking at the effect of chromium supplementation on glucose (blood sugar) control and concluded that chromium supplementation was effective at improving blood sugar control for type 2 diabetics.

But what if you are already on medication for type 2 diabetes?

Another study, a placebo-controlled randomized control trial, showed that adding chromium supplementation to the most commonly used oral medication for type 2 diabetes significantly improved blood sugar control compared to the medication alone.

In fact blood sugar control improved so much that many patients were able to decrease the amount of medication that they were using!

Why is chromium effective?

It turns out that chromium is an integral part of a protein called glucose tolerance factor (now often referred to in the scientific literature as chromodulin) that enhances the ability of the insulin receptor to recognize and bind to insulin. That, in turn, makes the body better able to respond to fluctuations in blood sugar levels.

But don't most people get enough chromium in their diet?

Actually, the American diet is fairly marginal for chromium - and that is a particular problem for diabetics. That's because whenever the blood sugar levels get too high some of the glucose spills over into the urine and carries trace minerals like chromium with it.

Thus, a significant percentage (30-40%) of type 2 diabetics are deficient in chromium. Supplemental chromium is particularly effective in helping those diabetics get their blood sugar levels under control.

Now there is a bad news & good news aspect with respect to chromium supplementation to get your blood sugar under control.

The bad news is that the chromium levels that were shown to be effective in many of these clinical trials are quite high, and chromium can be toxic if consumed in a large enough amount for an extended period of time.

The good news is that many type 2 diabetics are also deficient in vanadium and magnesium, and supplementation with those nutrients in deficient individuals also improves blood sugar control.

What that means is that supplements containing lower levels of all three minerals are often effective in helping people regulate their blood sugar levels normally.

*My Note: Shaklee’s Glucose Regulation Complex contains chromium plus the other minerals mentioned here. You can learn more about it here: Do You Have High Blood Sugar, Cravings or Overweight?

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 nearly impossible to do. The guideline is to follow the www.choosemyplate.gov. The Choose My Plate guidelines are good to follow, but it is extremely hard to do so 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. Keep in mind, the produce in the stores was picked before ripening and has markedly reduced amount of nutrients and for some, hardly any nutrients in it at all.

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 I do eat a hotdog or two with chips and a pop, too. 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 HealthSciences information page.

 Watch this Shaklee Difference video, and get an inside look at Shaklee product development and delivery through the eyes of the Shaklee Scientific Advisory Board, Shaklee Independent Distributors and Dr. Jaime McManus, Dr. Carsten Smidt, Cindy Latham, Les Wong, Doug Debernardi, ingredient suppliers and more. Find out why world-class athletes turn to Shaklee for top performance. 


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 have said they noticed a dramatic improvement in their health and the way they feel. What is really great is they come with a 100% money back guarantee.

When you pick Shaklee, you will know three things to be true: It is always safe. It always works. And it is always green.  That's the Shaklee Difference.

To Your Good Health,

Julie
