Why Shaklee?

Posted at January 16, 2012 | By : | Categories : Healthy Living Tips | 0 Comment

Those of you who know me best know that my number one priority is to help my friends, family members, and anyone else who cares live a healthier life. Living a healthy life isn't only about eating the right foods or getting the right amount of exercise. It's about controlling the amount of toxins you let into your home, the amount of impact you have on the environment, and so much more.

I didn't join Shaklee as an independent distributor because it was the hottest company on the market at the time. I had just finished a 13 year stint working as a chemical engineer. I know how products are made. I know how they're manufactured. And I know about the impact they have on the environment. I spent a lot of time researching different companies before choosing one to affiliate myself with.

Shaklee Review

What Makes Shaklee Special

Shaklee has a history that dates back more than 50 years. The founder of the company, Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee, built his company around a simple set of values. He wanted to create products that were not only effective but as pure as possible as well. I'm not only talking about nutritional supplements, either. I'm talking about personal care products, household goods, and cleaning products as well. His scientific discoveries and applications truly speak for themselves.

Safety and Nutrition

Take, for example, your vitamin supplements. The supplements created by Shaklee pass the USP (United States Pharmacopeia) standards. Truth, though? Most that do a Shaklee review find that Shaklee's standards are incredibly strict and surpass USP expectations. The company will not use an ingredient without first testing it for 350 different contaminants. The USP requires testing for only 80 specific contaminants. That's a huge difference and it means many manufacturers are doing the bare minimum in terms of testing while Shaklee is going above and beyond.

While the purest ingredients are great, it is also important for them to be potent and absorbable by the body. When the scientists at Shaklee hear about an ingredient, they first read all of the available information, and then they conduct their own tests to determine if it is as potent as believed. They'll then add a high-quality version of that ingredient to their proprietary blends, all of which are developed with a system that guarantees a higher level of absorption in the body than your standard supplement. The process is simply amazing!

Shaklee has spent the past 5 decades building a line of products that can be used throughout the home. I am amazed by the quality control put into everything from nutritional supplements and beauty products to personal care pieces and water purifiers. If you can think of a product, you can probably find something comparable from Shaklee.

I'm proud to stand behind Shaklee products and use them daily myself. Let me prove how using products that contain safer ingredients and that are manufactured in a more eco-conscious manner can improve your life.
