Baby Boomers Say “Hold It” To The Aging Process
Since the beginning of time man has searched the world over seeking to find the secret of immortality to end old age. Thousands of anti aging treatments have been proposed including Cryonics, Genetic Engineering, Nanotechnology, the Free Radical Theory, Hormone Therapy. Nothing has been proven to work. However, now for the first time, scientists have made an astonishing discovery.
Ah-ha, this anti-aging miracle has been here all along. It’s been here since the beginning of time. However, its anti aging qualities went unnoticed for centuries. All the tests and theories so far are saying this is the “real” thing. This is the Jack Pot for the search for the fountain of youth in our world today. And, not a moment to soon. Just in time to provide a longer and better life for the world’s largest ever Baby Boomer population. Millions of Boomers are quickly approaching the 65 year mark (running out of time) and they want to look younger and live longer. Bottom line, they want to say “slow down” the aging process.
The aging process simply put is governed by the human biological clock which sets the time when bodily changes begin to accelerate The changes are caused naturally by DNA reproduction. As DNA cells reproduced themselves for the staff of life they get fuzzier and fuzzier. Liken to making 8 and 9 the generation xerox copies from the last copy made. The more you reproduce the fuzzier the copies become. Each time a cell reproduces itself a little something is lost. Additionally, an all natural process called FREE Radicals invade the body on the cellular level too. Once all the genes are affected by this all natural process, it has a devastating effect on the total body functions. And, life as we know it begins to decline.

Sports Nutrition Meets Shaklee Science
Extensive research has shown the benefits of caffeine on improved physical performance. L-theanine, found almost exclusively in tea, and L-tyrosine are two amino acids that have been studied for their effects on mental performance and focus. Some of the many well documented benefits of consuming the ingredients in Shaklee Energy include increased energy, mental clarity, alertness, and focus.*
Hardworking muscles need carbohydrates. The harder and longer you work out, the more your body needs to replenish carbohydrates to generate energy. Carbohydrates should make up at least 50% of an athlete’s calories during and after athletic events.
Dehydration is the number one source of decreased performancein trained athletes. Because dehydration can compromise athletic performance, athletes should strive for optimal hydration levels before, during, and after exercise. Drinking small amounts of cool liquids early and often during exercise is recommended. Shaklee Performance is clinically proven to hydrate better than water and to significantly increase endurance.
Electrolytes are minerals that control fluid balance, blood volume, heart rate, and body temperature. Electrolytes help balance the need for fluids with thirst to properly hydrate athletes. The oPTILYTE™ blend in Performance contains six electrolytes to support optimal hydration; the leading brand contains only four electrolytes.
Shaklee Performance® and Shaklee Physique® are both excellent sources of carbohydrates.
Muscles are made of protein. Athletes need to consume highquality, easy-to-digest protein to help repair, rebuild, and build new muscle mass in response to exercise. Extremely high intakes of protein are not necessary to increase muscle growth or performance. Physique provides the right ratio of proteins to carbohydrates and is clinically proven to stimulate an anabolic state that promotes muscle growth and energy recovery after a workout.

Have a healthy day,
Shaklee nutritional products have been helping to create healthier lives for millions of people for over 50 years. Our nutritional supplements can contribute to your overall well-being. However, essential nutrition/multi-vitamins may not provide all of the nutritional support you need especially if you have specific health concerns.
So in addition to the essential nutritional support, many people need targeted solutions for specific areas of concern. They may include…
• Solutions for heart health, eyes, immune support, memory, mood, immunity, women’s health, digestive, joint and bone and much more!
For those who just aren’t getting enough support for those special problem areas or who may have a specific health concern that can be addressed by additional supplementation, our targeted solutions and healthy supplement solution(s) may help.
Targeted Solutions is a simple pathway to improved nutrition for what may be the specific solution(s) you are looking for. Targeted solutions is the perfect solution for those certain problem areas and is not meant to replace basic vitamin requirements. If targeted health solutions is your answer, review our chart below. If you need more information regarding a specific area that might not be listed below feel free to contact us. If basic essential nutrition is important to you and your family, we’ve got everyone covered (learn more).

Mind & Spirit
THE BRAIN IS THE “CONTROL CENTER” OF THE BODY
The brain’s 100 billion neurons communicate using chemical and electrical energy to store skills, ideas, emotions, and memories. The brain performs so many important functions that, although it represents only 2% of body weight, it demands about 20% of the body’s blood flow every minute in order to receive the oxygen and nutrition it needs.
However, as we age, blood flow to the brain gradually decreases, and many people experience a gradual decline in their ability to remember, concentrate, and perform certain everyday activities. Declining cognitive function may first become apparent in stressful situations.
Mind Mood and Sleep, Shaklee offers safe and natural ways to maintain a healthy mind, a positive outlook and help support a restful sleep. Mental Acuity Plus® is a Shaklee exclusive formula that contains ginkgo, bilberry, hawthorn, and B vitamins to promote mental focus, concentration, decision making and memory. It also lowers homocysteine levels for cardiovascular health and helps maintain normal metabolic activity in the brain.
BLOOD SUGAR AND BLOOD PROTECTION IS CRITICAL
Maintaining normal blood sugar levels is important to maintaining long term health and wellness. Also, having potent antioxidant protection to the blood and blood rich tissues, especially the liver and intestines is critical. We recommend FlavoMax and Glucose Regulation for maximum circulatory protection.
GOT TUMMY PROBLEMS? WE’VE GOT ANSWERS!
Maintaining your digestive health is just as important as the health of your overall body. Support you digestive health now with our digestive health solutions. As you can see we have a cool selection and healthy tummy answers including our new Fiber Advantage Chewy Apple Cinnamon Bar. No more hard to swallow slimy drinks.
If digestive problems are a concern discover the Shaklee difference today.
Just a quick reminder to all that heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death in the United States. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated in 2008 that 770,000 Americans would suffer a heart attack for the first time, and about 430,000 would have a recurrent attack. The truth of the matter is that, about every 26 seconds, someone living in the United States will suffer a heart attack, and every minute one person will die from one.
We offer a wide range of healthy heart products packed with heart healthy nutrients including Omega-3, fatty acids, CoQ10, Fiber and Garlic to help promote cardiovascular health and help retain normal blood pressure.
Joint & Bone
JOINT HEALTH COMFORT IN AS LITTLE AS 5 DAYS
Without healthy joints, common activities such as bending, sitting, and walking would all be challenging. That’s because joints serve as links between bones that provide stability and control body movement. Cartilage is an essential component of joints that provides cushioning between bones and helps absorb shock from physical impact. As we age, this protective cushioning breaks down naturally.
Additional factors such as continued physical stress and overexertion can further accelerate the breakdown of cartilage by triggering the release of chemicals that attack cartilage. The result? Joint discomfort and limited mobility.
PROSTATE AND LIVER HEALTH
Supporting organ health as we get older is critical. We have developed this unique formula to support liver and prostate health.Our unique Saw Palmetto Complex helps maintain proper urinary flow in men. Its blend of natural ingredients includes the finest standardized saw palmetto berry extract, pumpkin seed oil, and enriched sources of beta sitosterols and other valuable phytosterols, which have been found to support prostate health
WOMEN HAVE SPECIAL NEEDS DURING EACH SPECIAL STAGE OF LIFE
Whether it’s coping with menstrual blues or menopause women simply have different needs at different times.Shaklee’s women’s health solutions help meet the unique health needs of women throughout every stage of life.

Confused about what, when, why and how to take vitamins or supplements. Looking for something a little more powerful than the generic drug store brands? Need something that’s safe, tested and guaranteedl? Need quality, something that you can depend on? Good news, Shaklee Nutrition!
Michelle Obama, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Surgeon General Regina M. Benjamin introduced the MyPlate nutrition symbol on Thursday in Washington.
Did you know the folks at the USDA are now saying we need to eat more fruits and veggies? In a bold move by the nation’s first lady Michele Obama, who has been in a what seems like a solo fight against childhood obesity and obesity in general, recently made critical changes to the nation’s old and complicated food pyramid. She has developed a new and very easy to follow healthy eating plan. It’s simply called “my plate”.
As you can clearly see half of the plate consists of 50% fruit and vegetables. The other half is divided with grains and protein with a side of dairy. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
Well, just what is it that makes fruits and veggies so important? It appears that there is more to those fresh greens and strawberries then the food industry has been letting on. They are called phytochemicals or phytonutrients
Phytonutrients are divided into two classes called flavonoids and carotenoids and they are critical in providing the body with extremely important antioxidant protection. This is something that the scientists at Shaklee have known for some time.
In today’s world we need antioxidant protection more than ever before. Antioxidants protect our cells from free radical attacks caused by pollution, exposure to sunlight, stress, cigarette smoke, drug abuse, alcohol consumption, and other assaults we take for granted as we go throughout out day. learn more. And, it has been proven that a diet of fruits and veggies may provide the antioxidant power we need to stay healthy. Yes a diet high in fruits and veggies will keep the free radical attacks that lead to devastating diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, eye and skin problems and yes even early on set aging at bay. But the list does not stop there…learn more. The My Plate move is a giant step toward getting Americans to eating less and better.
Unless you happen to live on a farm, getting the recommended five – seven daily servings of fruits and veggies is not only difficult but also very unlikely. Most people simply can’t or don’t eat a sufficient quantity or variety of deep-green, yellow, blue, and red vegetables and fruit they need every day. As a result, few people have the broad-base phytonutrient defense they need to help fend off the free radical attacks.
For those who can not always eat 5 – 7 servings daily Shaklee has found a way to maximize your antioxidant protection. We developed a very powerful antioxidant protection derived from nature. Shaklee’s Flavomax and CarotoMax™ is ideal for busy adults young and old who fall short of the recommended daily servings of vegetables and fruit, thus failing to obtain significant levels of a broad spectrum of important carotenoid antioxidants to combat free radical damage. Perfect for teens (over 18) and young adults, who often find it especially difficult to eat a balanced diet.
Working together, these nature-based supplements provide a broad spectrum of high-power antioxidants that help protect cells from free radical damage.*

Here’s To Your Health,
What is Resveratrol Really? It’s a natural (powerful) antioxidant found in mainly in grapes. But, there’s a whole lot more!
Resveratrol is a naturally occurring polyphenol that shows pleiotropic health beneficial effects, including anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, cardioprotective and neuroprotective activities. Resveratrol, a type of polyphenol called a phytoalexin, a class of compounds produced by plants as part of the plant’s defense system against disease. It is produced in the plant in response to an invading fungus, stress, injury, infection, or ultraviolet irradiation. Red wine contains high levels of resveratrol, as do grapes, raspberries, peanuts, and other plants.
Barbara Walters interviews one of the scientists who discovered Resveratrol…by accident.
Resveratrol, the new found fountain of youth, is in all the news and is for sale just about everywhere in all shapes and forms. The mad rush to manufacture and sell resveratrol as quickly as possible to market to the world’s largest aging population — the Baby Boomers.
Companies are springing up all over the internet pushing resveratrol in every form imaginable including capsules, pills and yes those resveratrol “health” juice drinks. Many of these fly-by-night companies use questionable additives and other ingredients that may or may not be beneficial. Before you rush out and spend your hard earned money I recommend a little research.
Or, consider Vivix, 10 times more powerful than Resveratol alone by a name you can trust, Shaklee. Our premier Anti-Aging Resveratrol supplement Vivix is not a pill, not a capsule, not a tooty fruity topical drink. Vivix is a highly concentrated dose of Resveratrol without the alcohol. That’s right, Vivix is formulated without the intoxicating alcohol found in red wine. Additionally, Vivix is formulated as a delicious tasty serum that is quickly absorbed and easily digested.
If healthy anti aging and living a longer and healthier life is important, Vivix is the incomparable choice. Vivix is our number one anti aging supplement and an absolute ‘must have’ if you want to look and feel 25 years younger and if quality and results are important.
Don’t wait to get started, every day lost is a day without anti aging.
Here’s to living healthy and longer,
The secret is out on Anti Aging Foods. The funny thing is… Anti Aging foods have been around forever. However, we have been so brain washed into eating fast foods, restaurant foods, pre packaged and pre-cooked foods, that we have forgotten what our parents (grand parents) taught us, “Eat Your Vegetables” (of course, back then they were garden fresh veggies).
You see, Anti Aging Super Foods are honest to goodness fresh fruits, veggies, fish, nuts, beans and natural honey and yes even chocolate. They are foods that are as close to natural as possible. However, Super Anit Aging Foods are slightly different. The difference? They are foods that are high in ORAC values (foods high in antioxidant value) or Omega 3s
What’s so cool about our Top 25 Anti Aging Foods is that once inside they battle your free radicals because they contain powerful antioxidants and that’s there job.. Have you ever wondered about the alarming rise of diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, stroke etc? Are you settled in with the fact that you are suppose to die at 65 or 70 years old probably dying from some devastating disease? Trust me, we are suppose to live much much longer than that.
Honestly? It is being said in the medical communities that if we simply stop eating manufactured processed food or foods striped for all it’s nutrients and loaded with artificial by products, sugars, dyes, salt and chemicals we can’t even pronounced, maybe just maybe we could all live healthier lives.
Well the time has come. Here is your chance to draw the line in the sand. Begin shopping and cooking from the simple list of foods high in ORAC values, start cooking home cooked meals again and watch out. Not only will you feel better, you will live longer. It’s liken to quitting cigarettes. You know smoking is bad for you. And, you know when you do stop you’ve just increased your chances of living longer and a little healthier. Changing eating habits is the same principal.
Our Top 25 Anti Aging Super Foods
Acai Berries — These powerful little berries contain contain a very powerful supply of anthocyanins and flavonoids. That means they contain very powerful antioxidants. So what are antioxidants? Antioxidants help defend the body against free radicals. Okay? So what’s a free radical? If you can just go along with me for a moment I’ll fill you in briefly. However, if you can trust me just know that these berries are God’s little miracle.
The essay for superoxide gave the Acai berry a value of 161,400 units per 100 g, the highest yet found for any plant evaluated to date. ( ORAC value 102,700) (What’s and ORAC?)
Almonds — Almonds lower cholesterol thus reducing the risk of high blood pressure and hear tdisease.

Beans – Kidney fresh cooked (ORAC 8,459) Other types of beans have different ratings. learn more
Berries, cherries and grapes — These are excellent sources of antioxidants. Although the blue berry and acai berry are list toppers, these also contain ellagic acid which assist in combating cancer and aging. Dark skin berries are high inanthocyanosides which help fight some eye diseases bilberry and urinary track infections including cranberries and blue berries. (ORAC 87)
Blueberries – Pick up some fresh wild blueberries and stock up on frozen too. Scientists are saying blue berries come packed with the most absorbable antioxidants far more than those found in nutrient rich pomergrantes and grapes. Toss them in a salad, pancake batter, coffee cake or spice up a bowl of plain oatmeal. Make a delicious soy protein milk shake with low fat milk, chipped ice and soy mix (ORAC 6552)

The most abundant catechin in green tea is epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which is thought to play a pivotal role in the green tea’s anticancer and antioxidant effects. Catechins should be considered right alongside of the better-known antioxidants like vitamins E and C as potent free radical scavengers. (ORAC 1,253)

Spinach — Researchers have identified at least 13 different flavonoid compounds in spinach that function as antioxidants and as anti-cancer agents. Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin C and A, the latter notably through its concentration of beta-carotene.

This water-and-fat-soluble antioxidant team helps to prevent cholesterol from becoming oxidized. Oxidized cholesterol is able to stick to and build up in blood vessel walls, where it can cause blocked arteries, heart attack or stroke. Getting plenty of vitamin C and beta-carotene can help prevent these complications, and a cup of boiled spinach can provide you with 294.8% of the daily value (DV) for vitamin A along with 29.4% of the DV for vitamin C. Spinach is also an excellent source of folate and promotes gastrointestinal (colon) health.

What are ORAC Units?
The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) unit, ORAC value, or “ORAC score” is a method of measuring the antioxidant capacity of different foods and supplements. It was developed by scientists at the National Institutes of Health. While the exact relationship between the ORAC value of a food and its health benefit has not been established, it is believed that foods higher on the ORAC scale will more effectively neutralize free radicals. According to the free-radical theory of aging, this will slow the oxidative processes and free radical damage that can contribute to age-related degeneration and disease.

Have a healthy day,
Everyone is talking about Resveratrol, the fountain of youth, the anti aging miracle that was discovered in the skin of dark red grapes and other dark fruits (red wines). Resveratrol a natural antioxidant has been found to also aid in cancer prevention and in heart disease. But most importantly, the big news is the power of the little purple reddish grape…it slows down the aging process and as a result helps to stave off diseases associated with aging..
Yes, grapes seem to have the mother load of natural Resveratrol. Although, Resveratrol is found in other dark skin furit and plants, grapes seem to hold the hidden secret. At Shaklee, scientists have developed the world’s most powerful Resveratrol called Vivix.
‘Resveratrol’, or “phytolexin’ is produced by plants to fight the bacterial and fungal infections that attack them. Now, leaders in medicine are claiming that the same resveratrol that plants use to fight off bacteria and infections can aid us in staving off many diseases of aging and thereby increase longevity.
At Shaklee, Resveratrol has been taken to the next level with Vivix. Vivix is simply Resveratrol in an all natural concentrated blend. One tube of Vivix packs a power punch equivalent to the Resveratrol found in 3,000 glasses of red wine — without the intoxication. Understand, Vivix is not a fruity tooty purple drink or grape juice or a pill/capsule packed with fillers and flavors. Vivix is powerful concentrated serum 10 times more powerful than Resveratrol and is active in slowing the formation of AGE proteins.
So exactly what is Vivix and how does it work to help me remain healthy and even more beautiful as I get older?
- Vivix is a unique blend of polyphenols, including resveratrol – ingredients which have been shown in laboratory studies to positively impact the four mechanisms of cellular aging.
- Vivix polyphenols have been shown to effectively help protect and repair cellular DNA.
- Vivix polyphenols have been shown to positively impact genetic regulators, which help turn down cellular aging.
- Vivix polyphenols have been shown to promote mitochondrial biogenesis, which helps increase power production within the cells.
- Vivix polyphenols are 10x more powerful than resveratrol in slowing the formation of AGE proteins that gradually can clog up cells.Vivix Research
In addition to the long list of Anti Aging properties above, Vivix also:
- Supports heart health and cardiovascular function
- Supports brain health
- Supports enhanced immunity function
- Supports joint function
- Promotes cellular longevity
- Increases cellular energy
- Promotes good health and well being
- Provides antioxidant support
Oh, did I mention that Shaklee only uses a special super grape in our Vivix formula? That’s right, Shaklee scientists zeroed in on a remarkable super grape, known as Vitis rotundifolia. This is the only grape found in nature with an extra chromosome, which scientists believe greatly enhances its polyphenol profile and potential health benefits.*
So, How much is all this going to cost?
What About Those Tooty Fruity Juice and Drinks?
As for those tooty fruity drinks they can’t touch this. They all contain lower Resveratrol amounts and two to three glasses a day can cost as much as $140 $150 (maybe more) for a one month supply.. Why pay more for less? See our independent price comparison below. (Interactive screen display with full screen toggle switch)
I believe in ‘Shop and Compare’. I also believe in going with a quality brand or a name I can trust.
