Let me say at the start that I am a BIG fan of Amazon and buy many products through this amazing service, BUT having said that I am having trouble figuring out why anyone would purchase Shaklee products through Amazon when they could go through Authorized Shaklee distributors and in most cases get the product at a better price, with no mark up, NEW product and not expired etc.Keep in mind that not everything you buy on Amazon.com is actually sold by Amazon. Read the fine print to see if an item ships from an external vendor (it’s noted on the item description). If an item doesn’t come directly from the Internet giant, you’ll be subject to the policies of that other company — which might have longer shipping times and less helpful service,Third party sellers also set their own prices, and so what they charge may not be as competitive as items Amazon sells itself.
In the following few paragraphs I will outline why I think most people would be better off using an authorized Shaklee Distributor to buy Shaklee products versus going through Amazon.
First in the interest of full disclosure it’s important to point out that I am a Shaklee Independent Distributor:So to get to the point, below are the reasons that I think most people would be better off buying Shaklee products directly through an Authorized Shaklee Distributor.
1. Shaklee does NOT allow it’s distributors to sell through Amazon or any other online auction service, So if you buy product on one of these services you are NOT buying from an authorized Shaklee Distributor. At least not one in good standing.
2. Since the product can not come directly from Shaklee as it would if you bought it through an authorized Shaklee distributor, it is almost certainly an older product than it would be if you purchased through an authorized Distributor.
To be clear the way Shaklee works is that when you place an order through an authorized distributor, the product that you receive comes directly from Shaklee to you with no stop in between. When buying through Amazon that is not possible. The product is shipped to a customer of Shaklee from there ??? and then listed on Amazon and sold again. The product can NOT be shipped from Shaklee as they would quickly shut that down so the product you receive comes from (Anyones guess) and you can’t even be sure it’s actually a Shaklee product.
3. Assuming that the product is actually a Genuine Shaklee product and not expired or tampered with, it would still be impossible for a seller on Amazon to offer the product at the same price that you could buy it from an Authorized Shaklee distributor since the fees that Amazon Charges must come out of the price that the Amazon Seller charges as well as Two shipping charges. One from Shaklee to the seller and one from the seller to you.
4. Amazon has a great guarantee but not everyone is aware that Shaklee has a 100% satisfaction guarantee for products purchased through authorized distributors as well.

Shaklee product review | B-Complex (Kosher, Gluten Free) December 11, 2012
Shaklee product review | B-Complex (Kosher, Gluten Free):
The stress reliever vitamin I like to call it. We burn our B vitamins off when under stress, drink alcohol, eat sugar and processed foods. And it’s tough to replace them with our diet so addingShaklee B complex is essential.Stress needs no introduction. Its causes are numerous, (worry, rushing, poor diet, etc.) but its effects are nearly always the same: exhaustion, weak immune system, heart trouble and anxiety. When the body is under constant stress, the body releases adrenaline, to prepare for the “flight or flee” action. This constant state of “preparedness” leaves the body exhausted and scatter brained. In which case we turn to stimulants like caffeine to keep our energy and focus up, but what stimulants do is just produce more adrenaline, that makes us more exhausted and scatter brained: a vicious cycle. The more stress you are under, the more B vitamins you use up in your body.
Are you properly replacing your B vitimins?Exhaustion and Stress are something we all deal with. Being tired and stressed out comes with work, studying, watching kids, playing…basically it’s called life. But fatigue is something different. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome effects 100,000 in 250,000 people. Can you imagine being so exhausted, that not only do you not have the energy for the things you have to do, but also no energy for the things you use to love doing? Age doesn’t matter. It doesn’t get better with rest. It just goes on and on, day after day, month after month, year after year for some…
Shaklee B-Complex is a “must have product”. The B vitamins are vital for the formation of red blood cells that help the blood absorb iron and help other nutrients to the muscles. Otherwise, you become anemic, weak, scatter brained, stressed…
With Shaklee B complex you’ll experience:
The body is supposed to rejuvenate and if you are tired all the time, there could be a serious problem.
Shaklee B-Complex provides all eight essential B vitamins necessary for converting the food we eat into energy. B vitamins are essential in the synthesis of DNA and new cells. The B vitamins (folic acid, B6, and B12) promote a healthy cardiovascular system by helping to lower homocysteine levels in the blood.
When the B vitamins are taken together, like they are naturally found in food, they help the brain’s cognitive thinking to work properly and the nervous system to take it easy.
I pay extra attention to supplementing B vitamins and I can always tell when I’m low: I crave caffeine and sweets. B vitamins play an important role thoughout the body contributing to heart, lung, brain, and cell functioning, DNA regulation, and fortifying the body.
Shaklee B Complex offers a perfectly balanced blend of all 8 B vitamins and 100% or more of the daily requirement. Shaklee’s unique patented folic acid coating assures maximum aborption and bio-availability.

Shaklee product review | Energizing Soy Protein (Low-Fat, Non-GMO) December 6, 2012
(Low-Fat, Non-GMO)Need an energy boost during the day? Forget about caffeine which will give you a boost but then leave you feeling sluggish. Try Shaklee Energizing Soy Protein instead. Soy protein is a biologically complete protein that is plant based. It’s low in fat, cholesterol free, and full of essential amino acids. It helps build muscle and supports the immune system. Soy protein can even help you maintain normal cholesterol levels and promote heart health. Energizing Soy Protein also contains soy isoflavones which can help reduce hot flashes and promote breast health.
The powdered formula can be mixed with milk, juice, water or any one of your favorite beverages. Three tablespoons provides 14 grams of protein, enough to give you a sustained energy lift that won’t leave you feeling like you’re riding a roller coaster.
For more than 55 years, Shaklee Corporation has manufactured nutrition and wellness products that boast guaranteed efficacy, safety and environmental responsibility. One of the company’s popular products is its soy protein shake line, which is currently offered in four formulations for a variety of purposes. Many people drink these protein shakes for increased energy, fitness or as convenient meal replacements. Soy may affect some people negatively. In these cases, Shaklee offers a whey protein shake mix as an alternative.
Shaklee’s Energizing Soy Protein shake mix is a complete protein source containing 14 g of all nine essential amino acids. These amino acids are important because your body is unable to make them and must get them from food in order to build and repair itself. If your body does not get the essential amino acids it will begin to take protein from itself, which leads to a breakdown in muscle and other tissues. For energy, Shaklee has added five essential B vitamins, calcium and soy isoflavones to this protein mix. It is non-genetically modified, gluten-, lactose- and cholesterol-free and contains no artificial flavors, sweeteners, colors or preservatives. Shaklee Energizing Soy Protein is offered in Creamy Cocoa and Natural Vanilla flavors. Read more below…
If you’re concerned about the nutritional content of your food,
Try Shaklee, Energizing Soy Protein.A 1999 survey indicated that 87% of consumers reported changing their eating habits due to specific health concerns. Among the greatestworries were heart health and dietary cholesterol intake. The major dietary concern (reported by almost half of those surveyed) was reducing fat. Animal protein is a major contributor to the fat in the average American diet. Americans eat plenty of protein, but it is mostly from meat, eggs, and dairy sources, which are usually high in saturated fat and cholesterol.
In contrast, Shaklee Energizing Soy Protein is high in protein, that is naturally low in fat, and naturally lactose and cholesterol free. It also provides all the amino acids, including the nine essential ones your body needs but cannot manufacture itself. Using the newest methods for assessing the quality of protein, soy protein that given the score of 1.0 — the highest rating possible and equal to that given animal proteins such as those from eggs and milk. Shaklee Energizing Soy Protein products are also good sources of calcium and iron.
In addition, Shaklee Energizing Soy Protein provides naturally occurring beneficial plant compounds that are being extensively studied. Soy contains isoflavones, especially genistein and daidzein. These are intriguing to researchers because they are phytoestrogens and may be related to soy’s ability to regulate hormonal balance and deliver long-term health benefits.
Some soy protein products are alcohol-processed which removes isoflavones. Shaklee Energizing Soy Protein is waterwashed to retain naturally occurring isoflavones such as genistein and daidzein. Shakleeuses only non-genetically modified (GMO) soy protein certified through an Identity preservation program (IPP). This program assures that the soy we use is tightly monitored and controlled from planting and harvesting to processing.

• 58 million people who are concerned about heart health
• People interested in reducing their intake of the typically high-fat, high-cholesterol animal sources of protein and supplementing their diet with a plant-based protein source that is naturally low in fat and lactose and cholesterol free
• Vegetarians or vegans looking for a high-quality protein source that contains no animal products
• People interested in the health benefits associated with consuming soy
• Anyone interested in supporting the body’s natural ability to ward off hunger and maintain energy for hoursHow Does Shaklee Energizing Soy Protein work to sustain energy?
The key to Shaklee Soy Protein’s amazing ability to help people feel energized for hours is something scientists refer to as glycemic response. Glycemic response describes the effect a food has on blood sugar. Foods like a hot-fudge sundae can cause your blood sugar to spike and then plummet rapidly. A short time after you’ve finished the last spoonful, you feel tired, irritable, and surprisingly hungry considering the number of calories you’ve just consumed. This is exactly the opposite of how you feel after a serving of Shaklee Soy Protein.
In a clinical study, subjects consumed 110 calories from carbohydrates alone and their blood sugar was measured every half hour. As expected, blood sugar shot up immediately and then quickly crashed. It’s this “rollercoaster” response that can lead to feelings of jitteriness, irritability, and hunger.
However, when subjects consumed 110 calories of Shaklee Soy Protein, the results were significantly different. Blood sugar didn’t spike, nor did it plummet. Instead, it remained essentially level. The body’s natural metabolic balance was undisturbed.
Why Choose Shaklee Energizing Soy Protein?
• 14 grams of protein per serving
• Uses only IPP-certified non-GMO soy protein
• Highest-rated protein quality
• Natural vegetarian protein source
• Naturally cholesterol free
• No saturated fat
• 1 gram of total fat per serving
• Naturally lactose free

• Water-processed to retain naturally occuring isoflavones such as genistein and daidzein
• Choice of Creamy Cocoa or Natural Vanilla flavors
• No artificial flavors, sweeteners, colors, or preservatives added
• Kosher certified
Heart Health Benefits of Soy:
A metaanalysis of 38 studies indicates that consuming protein from soy foods is linked to retaining normal cholesterol levels.
Another study suggests that soy protein may have antioxidant properties that helps protect “bad” (LDL) cholesterol from oxidizing.
Beyond the potential of soy to positively impact the cholesterol that travels through arteries, soy isoflavones may also support the healthy function of the arteries themselves.*
One study showed that menopausal women taking soy protein supplements (rich in isoflavones) experienced a significant improvement in elasticity of their arteries.
This elasticity has been shown to decline with age, a change that is viewed as a risk factor for cardiovascular health. Some scientists are predicting that these isoflavone effects may prove to be as valuable in supporting heart-healthy aging as their potential to retain normal cholesterol levels
The American Cancer Society has created guidelines for a healthy diet:
Choose most of the foods you eat from plant sources.
•Eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day.
•Eat other foods from plant sources, such as breads, cereals, grain products, rice, pasta, or beans several times each day.
Limit your intake of high-fat foods, particularly from animal sources.
•Choose foods low in fat.
•Limit consumption of meats, especially those high in fat.
Be physically active: achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
•Be at least moderately active for 30 minutes or more each day.
•Stay within your healthy weight range.
Limit consumption of alcoholic beverages, if you drink at all.
•For people who already drink alcoholic beverages, limit intake to two drinks a day for men and one drink per day for women.
What Are Phytoestrogens and How Do They Work?
Soybeans are rich in a class of phytochemical compounds called isoflavones, particularly the phytoestrogens genistein and daidzein. Phytoestrogens are remarkably similar in molecular structure to the female hormone estrogen. They are thought to behave in the body like estrogen but at just a fraction of the strength of the powerful estrogens naturally produced by the body. Scientists suspect that it’s the relative weakness of these phytoestrogens that may actually work to support and protect our health. Body tissues that utilize estrogen for normal, healthy function contain estrogen receptors, which bind to the estrogen that circulates in the blood. Researchers have hypothesized that when a diet is rich in soy foods, phytoestrogens may bind to some of these receptors. Phytoestrogens are currently being studied for heart, bone, and breast health.
Soy and Bone Health
Americans typically think of dairy products as the best source of calcium, but there are many other good sources of calcium. In fact, Energizing Soy Protein is an excellent source of dietary calcium, providing 50% of the daily value of this important nutrient per serving. Protein from soy may also offer bone-health advantages by replacing sources of animal protein in the diet. For long-term bone health, calcium intake is only part of the story. Urinary calcium loss is another factor that contributes to a negative calcium balance. High consumption of animal proteins, which are high in sulfur amino acids, appear to be responsible for this effect.
Soy protein, which has less sulfur amino acids relative to meat and other animal protein sources, may result in less calcium being lost in the urine and help keep calcium in the skeleton. In one study, calcium excretion was found to be 30% lower when dietary protein from soy sources was compared to equal amounts of protein from beef, fish, and chicken in healthy adults consuming a constant amount of calcium.
The isoflavones in soy foods may also help support healthy bones.* A recent study showed that dietary intake of soy products containing isoflavones had a significant positive impact on bone turnover in healthy postmenopausal women.
Soy and Breast and Prostate Health
It has long been known that many soy-consuming Asian populations have better rates of breast and prostate health than do Western populations. There are many factors involved in prostate health, but a recent, large-scale population-health study suggests soy intake as one of those factors. In this study, men who reported frequently consuming soy milk (which contains isoflavones) were 70% more likely to maintain prostate health during a follow-up period, compared to the men who had little or no soy in their diet.
A recent population-health study conducted in China investigated the relationship between soy intake during adolescence and breast health later in life. After adjustments for known risk factors, higher soy food intakes reported during the teen years were associated with significantly better breast health when these women reached their pre- and postmenopausal adult years.
Researchers believe that soy intake starting at a young age and continued throughout life is linked to maintaining breast health.* Another way that soy may promote heart, breast, and prostate health is by providing protection against oxidation damage.* The soy isoflavone genistein has been shown to have antioxidant properties.
Soy and Menopause:
Cross-cultural studies of menopausal women have found that women in Japan experience a smoother transitional period than women in the West.
Soy foods are commonly consumed in Asian countries, providing an estimated 25–45 mg of isoflavones per day for the average person.
For the menopausal woman, soy has particular interest, as it is studied for both its apparent beneficial effect during menopause as well as for bone-building and helping to retain normal cholesterol levels.

Shaklee product review | Cinch (Weight-Loss Program) December 4, 2012
The Shaklee Cinch inch loss program is sold by independent Shaklee distributors and through Shaklee a 55 year old Natural Nutrition company based in Pleasanton California and founded in 1956 by 61-year-old chiropractor / pastor / motivational radio personality Forrest C Shaklee, who had been selling an early kind of nutritional supplement that he called “Vitalized minerals” since the age of 20. (Dr Shaklee invented the modern Multivitamin)
The Theory behind Cinch:
Cinch is Shaklee’s entree into the lucrative weight loss market. The centerpiece of the program are products that contain an amino acid called leucine. Leucine cannot be synthesized in the body, but rather is obtained as a component of protein rich foods, including meats, eggs and dairy products. It is used by both fatty tissue and by muscle tissue in the human body, in the case of muscle tissue for the purpose of stimulating muscle protein synthesis.
According to Shaklee, the leucine-enhanced Cinch products “help to retain 100 percent of lean muscle mass” during weight loss.
For the past 55 years, Shaklee scientists and researchers have been working to bring you the best products from nature that support and improve your health. From creating one of the first non-toxic cleaning products to being the first company to be climate neutral, Shaklee has been trailblazing the way as champions of the environmental movement. At the heart of their motivation is their belief that taking care of the health of families also makes a profound difference in the health of the planet.
Shaklee creates products for the home, beauty and health. One of their most notable products is the Cinch Inch Loss Plan, a regimen of protein-packed shakes, meal-replacement bars and energy-boosting teas that help you lose inches and pounds safely and effectively. The concept behind the weight loss plan is that the more muscle you have, the more efficient your metabolism will become, therefore, each of the Cinch products contain a significant dose of protein in order to help you build lean muscle mass.
You can lose up to 16 pounds in 12-weeks by following the Shaklee program correctly.
The California-based company sells its products through it’s network of independent distributors and online.
DIET and NUTRITION:
The Cinch Inch Loss Plan is a 12-week weight loss plan that promises to help you lose fat while keeping and building muscle. The magic of the Cinch Inch Loss Plan comes from the specific line of products which contain leucine, an amino acid that helps your body retain muscle mass.
On the Cinch Inch Loss Plan, you consume Cinch shakes and meal bars in place of two meals, preferably breakfast and lunch which contain a mega serving of protein. In addition, Cinch energy teas can be consumed throughout the day to offer a natural energy boost. Cinch Snack Bars can be eaten in lieu of your usual afternoon or mid-morning snack and the Cinch 3-in-1-Boot supplement is also taken each day in order to supply your body with the vitamins and minerals it needs and to regulate your blood sugar. A portion and calorie-controlled dinner of your choice is allowed.The Cinch Inch Loss Plan starter kit includes everything you need to begin the weight loss plan. The kit includes shake mixes (chocolate or vanilla), nutrition bars, supplements, daily journals, a CD program guide, shaker cup, pedometer and tape measure.
The CinchCoach software program helps you create a fitness plan that supports your weight loss goals. You can also read articles on fitness and exercise on the Cinch website and the starter kit comes with a pedometer to encourage adding more movement to your day and a measuring tape in order to measure your weight loss progress.
Shaklee is a health and beauty company that has been specializing in developing and selling healthy and sustainable products since 1956.
If you are looking for a controlled diet plan, one that provides you with food and tells you when to consume it, then Shaklee’s Cinch Inch Loss Plan might be just the weight loss program you need to lose weight and take control over your health once and for all.
