8 Steps to a Healthier Digestive System

Did you know that your 'poo' says a LOT about the health of your mind and body?
 The axis around which our digestive system operates is the command center for most of our bodily operations, including the absorption of nutrients, waste removal and the mind-body connection. 
An unhealthy gut can lead to an increase in allergies, auto-immune issues, and even anxiety. With our 'pill for every ill' mentality, many many people are dealing with an unhealthy gut and don't even realize it because they're confusing the symptoms with the root problem.
 Take care of your digestive system and your body will often have the proper tools and environment to correct itself.
 How do you do so?
1. reduce processed foods and alcohol
2. ensure that your gut is receiving active probiotic cultures regularly
3. check your poops for color and consistency daily
4. DRINK WATER; eliminate waste completely with fun tools like the Squatty Potty
5. increase your magnesium
6. avoid using artificial laxatives and all antiobiotics except in exceptional need
7. exercise daily
8. eat a clean(er) diet.

Are you Feeding or Fighting?

FEED THE GOOD..


It's always a CHOICE
And...every time you read or think...you're feeding your mind with how to realize your personal power and greatness as an OWNER of your life!
Or....you are feeding it permission to be a continuing VICTIM of the circumstances you are temporarily allowing yourself to experience...for however long you are willing to continue to not actually interrupt it and begin to step into, and start really living, your life and the best version of you.
Pour health, and life, and hope, and vitality, and prosperity, and excellence into your life and THEN into others!

10 Key Steps Shaklee takes to Ensure Shaklee Supplements are the Best in the Marketplace


1. Shaklee conducts over 100,000 tests annually to ensure the safety and efficacy of their products.

2. Each and every batch of Shaklee Products is tested to ensure the products meet their label claim.  We guarantee what is on the label is what is in the product - over the entire shelf life of the product.

3. All ingredients in Shaklee products are qualified under the incredibly stringent Shaklee protocol, unique in the industry, which for new botanical ingredients requires testing for up to 350 chemical contaminants, including pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, solvent residues, etc.

4. Shaklee Scientists create formulations so that the key active ingredients are included at scientifically supported levels, often significantly higher than many companies in the market.

5. Each product is formulated with nutritional ingredients that have been extensively studied to confirm safety and efficacy. Shaklee products do not follow "fads," but incorporate scientific and/or epidemiologic evidence of need and benefit.

6. Shaklee employs advanced delivery systems designed to dramatically improve the absorption of key nutrients - and these systems are tested in selected products to confirm their nutrient delivery advantages.

7. Shaklee has a robust raw material and supplier qualification program which request stringent testing of all raw materials, including comprehensive contaminant testing, which ensures they meet Shaklee's quality requirements.

8. Shaklee has an unwavering commitment to avoid the use of artificial flavors, sweeteners, and added preservatives. We use only non-genetically modified soy protein.

9. Shaklee developed many of the standards and protocols for manufacturing that are now referred to as Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs).

10. Shaklee product performance is also demonstrated by:

  • Over 100 scientific publications, 90-plus in peer-reviewed journals
  • The Landmark Study, the only study of its kind, which showed that people who took Shaklee supplements over a period of 20 years had markedly better health than both single-multivitamin and non-users of supplements
  • Shaklee products powering athletes to win 188 medals
  • Shaklee products fueling world explorers, 7 of Time-Life's "Greatest Adventures of All Time," and NASA Shuttle astronauts with a special rehydration product (called Astro-Ade).
