Shaklee products on Amazon.com January 22, 2013

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.

So to clarify you could buy directly through an authorized Shaklee distributor with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, Get the products in a sealed box, directly from Shaklee or take your chances with possibly counterfeit or tampered with product possibly outdated, almost certainly old product and at a higher price.  And if the price is not higher the big question has to be WHY?  Most sellers are in business to make money and with the Shipping, amazon fees packaging etc.  If the product is real it MUST be more expensive.

    What are the most popular / Best Selling Shaklee products November 30, 2012

    We love them all, and you can see the full product line by clicking below. 

    (Shaklee Product Line) or our (Digital Catalog)
    Our favorites are very similar to some of Shaklee’s 
    most loved products:

    1. Vivix®.


     Shaklee calls it “a revolutionary breakthrough in the fight against cellular aging.” The ingredients in Vivix have been shown in laboratory studies to positively impact the four key mechanisms of cellular aging. In fact, a 30-day supply delivers the equivalent amount of resveratrol found in 3,000 glasses of red wine, and laboratory studies found Vivix to be 10x more powerful in slowing a key mechanism of aging than resveratrol. It’s really good stuff!*

    2. Shaklee Vitalizer™. 


    This is my foundation. In one daily packet I get foundational nutrients I need, including sustained release B and C vitamins, minerals and more, plus probiotics, Omega-3s and more. If you’re like 9 out of 10 Americans, you don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables, and that means you may not be getting enough of the right nutrients. That’s a great reason to supplement what you eat and I really like the way Vitalizer makes me feel!

    3. Cinch® Vanilla Shake Mix: Soy or Cinch® Vanilla Shake Mix: Whey.


    I love these shakes for so many reasons. They are rich in protein, I can mix in strawberries, bananas, peaches, whatever and it always tastes great. That’s my routine…blender, milk, fruit, cinch shake powder. It’s so good. I feel full and stay feeling full throughout the morning. They’re great for people watching what they eat. Both feature an ingredient called Leucine which helps retain muscle.

    4. Basic-H2® Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate. 


    I love this because I can use it in so many different ways around the house. I clean my whole house with it. One bottle goes a long, long way. A 16 oz bottle creates an unbelievable 48 gallons of super-safe, really powerful, all purpose cleaner. It replaces so many household cleaners I used to buy at the grocery store. It’s concentrated, so it saves me a lot of money compared to ready-to-use cleaners. It’s nontoxic, too!

    5. NutriFeron®. 


    NutriFeron is “a clinically supported blend of immune-strengthening plant extracts.” I simply call it an immune system booster. It’s in my top 5 because so many of my friends and family use it. I feel like it boosts my immune system defenses and helps increase my resistance wherever my paths take me.*

    6. Nutrition Therapy Skin Care System™. 


    This is a great skin care system, for women and men. The exclusive to this is “Vital Repair+® which blocks ALL those skin-damaging free radical reactions and actually allows the skin to keep making healthy cells.” For me, I like it because it leaves my skin looking smooth and feeling incredible.

    7. Nature Bright® Laundry Booster and Stain Remover.


    This stuff is like gold in my laundry room. I use it on grass stains, dirt, even stains on upholstery in the car or home. You name it. It cleans with “natural enzymes and active oxygen” so it seems to keep my clothes bright without fading, but still clean.

    8. Fresh Laundry Concentrate (Powder).


    If awards were given out for the amount of wash that is done in homes, our home could qualify to be a winner. I really like Fresh Laundry Concentrate Powder. The fragranced version smells great, it cleans very well. It cleans with natural enzymes and biodegradable surfactants, and is very safe in water systems. I love that it is concentrated too. With just a ¼ cup, you can clean a whole load.

    9. Cinch® Snack Bars. 


    When I get those cravings for a snack, I really like having Cinch Snack Bars around! Each bar has 10 grams of protein and only 120 or 130 calories—I like that, a lot. When I look at some other bars on the market, they often don’t even have 3 grams of protein and they’re full of sugar. Like the shakes and meal bars, these Cinch snack bars also have Leucine, which helps preserve muscle. And, they taste great!

    10. Cinch® Energy Tea Mix. 


    For me, Cinch teas are a safe, natural energy boost and a great alternative to sugary snacks, coffee and soda. You can drink it hot or cold. It comes in little single serve sticks so you can just add it to a water bottle; they’re very portable and packable. One of my favorite parts – it’s not too tart and not too sweet. It’s just right!

    Do you eat to much? The Answer is Likely Yes… November 21, 2012


    Don’t be a Victim of Portion Distortion

    It’s no secret that people are larger today than ever before. Waistlines have expanded over the last twenty years and studies show that portion sizes have grown as well.

    Researchers from New York University found that average portion sizes started to grow in the 1970’s, rising quickly in the 1980’s – and this phenomenon hasn’t shown signs of slowing. A “large” order of fries from McDonalds’ weighs the same as 1998’s “Supersize” fries. And it doesn’t stop there. Check out these eye-opening figures, provided by the National Institutes of Health:

    Today’s 6-inch bagel has 350 calories. This is 210 more calories than a 3-inch bagel 20 years ago.

    Today’s 5 ounce muffin has 500 calories. This is 310 calories more than muffin 20 years ago.

    Today, a large cookie has about 275 calories. This is 220 more calories more than a cookie 20 years ago.

    Today, a 3 cup chicken Caesar salad has 790 calories. This is 400 more calories more than Caesar salads 20 years ago.
    Keep in mind that the health experts all agree on one thing: Obesity is on the rise because people eat too many calories and do not exercise enough. Portion control is a very important factor for losing-weight, but to attain a fit and healthy physique exercise is also a must.

    Now that you know portion sizes today are far larger than you really need, what are you going to do the next time you go out to eat? 

    Try the following 3 tips and watch as your waist begins to slim and your confidence soars.

    Trim-Down Tip #1: Re-program Your Mind
    I’m sure your mother did a great job when she taught you to “clean your plate.” The problem now lies in the fact that your plate is usually loaded with more than 3 times the calories that you really need. So what’s the solution?

    Realize that it is O.K. to leave food on your plate. Eating everything on the plate is probably a habit now, but it is one that you can break. Focus on how you feel halfway through your meal. Are you full? If you are beginning to feel full then stop eating. Don’t worry – your mom won’t send you to your room!

    Trim-Down Tip #2: Slow Down
    I know that this is a tough one – so bear with me. These days we are in such a hurry, we rush to work, rush to lunch, rush through errands and then rush home. So it is no wonder that food consumption is no exception. Most meals are devoured before your stomach has the chance to let you know that it is full.

    Eat your next meal slower than usual. Chew each bite thoroughly, engage in conversation and pay attention for signs that you may be getting full. Once you realize that you are full, stop eating. Congratulations – you just tailored your portion down to its proper size.

    Trim-Down Tip #3: Go Halfsies
    I understand that it may be very difficult for you to leave food on your plate, even though your mother isn’t looking over your shoulder, and even if you eat slowly. No problem – you just need to do some strategic planning. The next time you go out to eat do one of the following two options.

    1) Share an entrée with a friend and order salad or soup to start your meal. This will cut your calories down dramatically, while still giving you the satisfaction of clearing your plate.

    2) If sharing isn’t an option then ask your waiter to bring a to-go box along with your order. As soon as the food is placed in front of you put half of it into the to-go box. You are now left with a reasonable portion and even have your next meal taken care of.

    And our last tip is to get on a great Soy based diet program Like the ones offered by Shaklee.

    Include Shaklee in your 2013 New Years Resolutions! November 20, 2012

    Filed under: Healthy Weight — HomeBizCentral.org @ 8:49 am
    Tags: , , , , , , ,


    Goodbye 2012 / Hello 2013:Believe it or not it’s almost 2013 and time to review our 2012 New Years resolutions, to take stock of our progress towards goals and objectives and set a whole new set of objectives for the coming year.

    You know what I’m talking about

    That feeling of excitement in your gut as the New Year greets you with the promise that you can turn things around…that you can shake off past mistakes…that you can become better.

    The New Year renews hope for our dreams, And if you’re like most people then your dream for the New Year has 
    everything to do with losing weight.

    It makes sense doesn’t it? 

    What better time is there than now to transform your body into the one that you’ve always dreamed of?
    To get you off to a great start I’d like to share with you some food for thought:


    Why do we eat?

    Now I know at first glance the answer to that question seems painfully obvious – but I want you to dig deeper. You’re probably thinking that you eat when your body is hungry to get the energy you need to sustain life. And you’re partially right. 

    But that’s not the only reason that you eat.The truth is that you (along with almost everyone you know) eat too much. Your body simply doesn’t need all of the calories that you consume, and it shows in a physique that is less than svelte. If we only ate to fuel our bodies then we’d all have washboard abs. And that’s clearly not the case, right?

    So what drives you to eat when you shouldn’t? Hmmmm.
    The answer to this question could be just what you need to see results in 2013.


    Here are the four basic reasons that you eat:

    Because you’re hungry:

    This one is obvious. You eat when your body tells you that it’s hungry and in need of fuel. Just like your car lets you know when it’s time to head over to the gas station for a filler up, your body is great at letting you know that 

    energy stores are low.Eating when you are hungry and stopping when you are full is a healthy thing.
    Too bad this isn’t the only reason that you eat…


    Because you’re emotional:
    …but the truth is that you also eat when you are emotional. Think back – can you remember a time when you turned to food after a stressful confrontation? Or how about when you’ve soothed the blues away by treating your sweet tooth? And it’s not just negative emotions that lead to emotional eating – most of us reward happiness with unnecessary calories as well.


    Because you’re social:

    Come on, don’t just sit there, have a slice of pizza with us. No one likes to eat alone, and so you feel obligated to eat with others. How many times have you filled up a plate just because everyone else was eating?
    When eating becomes a social activity with no thought to the calories that are being consumed, only one thing will result: weight gain.

    Because you’re habitual:

    At the end of each day you relax in front of the television with a snack, and I’m willing to bet that it isn’t because you’re hungry. You simply associate sitting down to watch television with eating something. Or maybe you always visit the vending machine on your break whether you’re hungry or not – it’s just become a habit.

    As humans we love to form habits, and when your habits involve eating extra calories then your waistline suffers for it.


    Here is my challenge to you: 
    Take the time to examine why you are eating, and choose to only eat when you’re truly hungry.This small action has the potential to dramatically improve your physique in the coming year.

    Remember that improving your diet is only half of the equation when it comes to reshaping your body. The quickest and most permanent results are achieved when good eating habits are accompanied by challenging exercise.

    I’d like to see you transform your body in 2013
    So much so that I am asking you to contact me for a body transformation consultation so 
    I can show you how to get the body that you deserve. Contact Us
