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.

What makes one distributor or “team” of distributors better than another.
Very simply put it’s passion for the business, it’s finding a “Team” to work with that cares as much as you do. It’s partnering with a “Group” that has the same drive and motivation that you do and more…
The Benefits of Finding a Good Shaklee Distributor or “Team’ of distributors:
The demand for a good Shaklee distributor, or any distributor of products, for that matter, is more critical nowadays then ever. People want full service; not just to be talked into signing up as a customer or a representative and then left “high and dry”
The Shaklee corporation has been around for over 55 years; and over that time they have had a lot of time to test and create superb health products. Shaklee is a company that you should expect, and want excellence in service as well. Below are some of the qualities and characteristics of a good distributor that a buyer or future shaklee rep would and should expect from a current Shaklee distributor.
Four Common characteristics Of A Good Distributor:
1. Are they properly trained? In other words, if they don’t have an answer to a question or concern, they need to be able to have the ability and inclination to get assistance. The goal is to properly equip the new business builder to “run with the ball”. Pride should a non-issue for the Shaklee distributor. Answers should be at their fingertips (such as a phone call away). A quick call or two should suffice in order to supply you the answer you need to promote your business.
2. Are they motivated and committed to providing what you need? A good distributor or team of distributors will make a huge effort to help ensure that your business gets off to a great start; and of course, without pestering to the point of turning into a menace. When you want or need help, your shaklee business partner should be there to support you as much as possible. In fact, helping you to succeed is in his or her best interest.
3. Do do they have teaching skills or do they have the marketing tools to teach? A good Shaklee distributor will ask relevant questions and listen to your answers in order to help improve their service to you. And in turn help you improve your services to your customers and any new Shaklee distributors you may recruit. A good distributor should not just teach, but should also listen to learn how he can best serve you.
4. Is the distributor influential? The distributor should constantly and consistently work on acquiring good leadership qualities and develop into an active leading role, leading other consumers and/or Shaklee distributors in building their business.

Shaklee Complaints | Shaklee Scam:
Shaklee is the oldest brand in the natural nutrition / natural health industry,they coined the term “Social Marketing” and invented the first multivitamin. Shaklee corporation has been around for over 55 years and literally is a bedrock of integrity and stability in the often changing marketplace of network / social marketing companies. What are some of the biggest Shaklee complaints out there and are they founded?
One of the biggest controversies, as far as a business builder goes, particularly in today’s day and age is their internet policy towards advertising Shaklee if you already belong to that company..
As is common with many older network marketing companies, they, on the surface appear to be very controlling of their brand name on the internet. After all, if a company does not have a brand name, what do they have?
However, brand name control is a very tricky thing on the internet, Shaklee being no exception. Often times what works best is for companies to, rather try to restrict the conversation, which breeds mistrust on an open internet platform, to engage in the conversation and their customers and distributors.
In fact, apparently there was a big point of interest a few years ago when Oprah appeared to endorse the products on her show as “one of her favorite things”. What happened was that there was a complete ban from the company towards its distributors from using her name in connection with the products.
But, it should be noted that several very prominent Shaklee Independent distributors have built very large businesses using the internet. They built their organizations in various ways, such as pay per click marketing and using recruiting systems or funded proposals.
Really, from what you can read online, it appears that you simply need to indicate that you are a Shaklee independent distributor in order to use the name of their products or corporate name so as to separate what you are saying with their corporate identity.
So, what is the summary here for Shaklee complaints, particularly surrounding their use of the internet for its distributors?
Read below for thoughts on Shaklee as a Scam.

A LIFE OF PASSIONS:
FORM FOLLOWS PHILOSOPHY:
Second, his experience working one-on-one with patients led to the company’s direct sales model. He knew personal conversations were the best way to explain the benefits of preventive health. Dr. Shaklee said, “We’ll teach some and they’ll teach others to teach others to teach others.” So the Shaklee men did, talking to people up and down California, using a Plymouth station wagon as their distribution center. They talked, people listened and told others. Even without formal “salespeople” the message spread. The father-and-sons team created a grassroots movement hundreds of thousands strong and a company that today is worth $500 million.
Dr. Shaklee’s innovations didn’t end with nutrition. He practiced “Living in Harmony with Nature®” in home care, inventing a biodegradable cleaner decades before environmental safety was a concern. He pioneered new discoveries in nutrition that went mainstream years later. He wouldn’t have thought much about contemporary labels like eco-chic, organic or self-actualization, but he was a pioneer in all of them. Fifty years later, his company has led hundreds of thousands to better, healthier lives—and helped all of us live in a better world.
Forrest was born November 1884 and diagnosed with tuberculosis. This boy was thought too weak to survive to adulthood. He vowed to live life to the fullest. From a young age, he accepted nature as his physician. He lived in harmony with nature and believed, “She has never let me down. When nature speaks, I listen.” His family moved to the country in hopes that the clean air and fresh food would prolong Forrest’s life. He was too sickly to help with the farm chores so he spent much of his time watching and contemplating nature. He read, studied, and developed an insight about life. “We too, have an instinct like the migrating birds, telling us what to do. Sometimes forcing us to do things we don’t want to do. But if we listen to nature, we would get along a lot better in this world.”
He studied the bible and verbalized biblical phrases “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” As a child growing up at the turn of the century, his home life was a great foundation of who he was to become. He knew the names of all the spices and herbs his mother used. They used a lot of them. He said “Nature can give you everything you want as long as you read the signs.” His mother was very grateful to know her grandmother’s recipes for using herbs and spices. She believed the medicinal qualities from these plants kept her family healthy and said so.
Forrest was open to all experiences and became a boxer, wrestler, horseman, and ball player. His father encouraged this young man’s physical abilities and his mother encouraged his inquisitive nature. Forrest later became very interested in politics and studied the public speakers of his day. The Chautauqua Circuit came to town. This was when people met in a community area and speakers talked about the issues of the day. This was a way to educate and inspire people in rural towns. The lectures were informative and entertaining. Young Forrest was especially in awe with William Jennings Bryan. Forrest admired his charisma, speaking ability, and his courage to speak his mind so openly. Forest learned more from Bryan, about public speaking, than anyone else.
Mcfadden owner of the McFadden Institute of Physical Culture influence him as well. Forrest learned that health could be maintained with proper diet and lots of exercise. After working for McFadden, Forrest didn’t agree with some of the institute’s business practices. He referred to the bible again and vowed to live and do business by the Golden Rule. Forrest said in an interview regarding working with McFadden “He left an impression upon my life that has been very beneficial. Feed the inner part of this body and it will respond to the demand for strength and ability.”
Because of his eagerness to learn, Forrest Shaklee was invited in to the home of Dr. Clarence Lenly. Forrest also believed feeding the inner part of his soul was very important. He witnessed some of the great thinkers in action, debating intellectual subjects. Clarence Darrell was a renowned attorney and Albert Hubbard was a world famous philosopher. Shaklee found Hubbard to be a wonderful man, deep thinker, and a fair critic. “Think it out Shak, think it out,” Hubbard would say.
Another influence in Shaklee’s life was a professor, B.J. Palmer, while studying at The Palmer School in Davenport, Iowa. Palmer called nature the life force and that vitality comes from the innate strengths within us. Forrest became interested in Chiropractic after a general practitioner misdiagnosed his abdominal pain as appendicitis. Forrest got a 2nd opinion after the doctor said he would need immediate surgery. The Chiropractor cured him without surgery so Forrest wanted to learn more. Forrest debated Palmer over the belief that Chiropractic cures everything, although it is important part of healing many problems. Shaklee also noticed that many of Palmer’s patients were overfed and/or undernourished.
Dr. Shaklee decided to open a medical service clinic in Rockwell City. He convinced a banker to give him a loan even though he didn’t have collateral. Dr Shaklee said he had mental collateral. He will hit the bulls eye! He will achieve what he sets out to achieve! “Blessed is the straight thinker for he will hit the bulls eye.” He got the money and later wrote a book, Thoughtsmanship” He said, “This is a method used to direct the life force because what you think you look, what you think you do, and what you think you are.”He consoled his patients to do the same and to maintain a positive attitude. He said, “The mind is like a wheel barrow. It goes where you push it. You should be wary of those who try to push your mind around. Be careful of negative thinking, it upsets the body balance. Positive thought bring happiness and contentment. Your thoughts can help you get what you go after.”
Dr. Shaklee said, “If you give of yourself, without question, help comes from the most unexpected places.”
His research started with finding a way to get all the values of a square meal in one tablet. He created vitalized minerals. His sons worked by his side.
In those days people were unaware of the dangers of the X-ray machines. Dr. Shaklee used these on a regular basis and developed radiation poisoning. He was told he would lose his arm and die later. He didn’t accept this and pursued another way. It took 3 years and he survived with his arm intact.
Another blow was his laboratory burned down. His research of a lifetime; everything was gone. Again, he relied on his mind. Everything he needed was in his mind to rebuild or recreate his research. This time, though he build a house trailer type vehicle that made the news. He also developed the rubber formula used for the tires. After moving his family to Florida, he encountered Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and Harvey Firestone. Dr. Shaklee would say about them, If those three men, the brains of our industrial world, could forget their minor troubles of business and act and play together like 3 kids, I should let down for a while, and not take too much strain. My advice to everybody, don’t take yourself so seriously.” This attitude helped him get through losing his wife in a car accident (his boys were about 7 and 12 years old), and the stock market crash.
Dr. Shaklee moved to California and he and his sons, Forrest Jr. and Lee, made a business plan based on the “Thoughtmanship”. All products he developed are “In harmony with Nature”. Instead of selling Shaklee, they said, let us share the dream of Thoughtmanship and anyone can take this dream and make it their own. One of the first, most successful, and longest running MLM companies was born.
Dr. Shaklee started building this business in 1956 at the age of 62 when most people are retiring. He remarried in 1957.
What credentials did he collect along the way?
He earned a Doctor of Divinity. He received his Doctor of Chiropractic from Palmer School of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa in 1915 and later received a Philosopher of Chiropractic degree (1932) and a doctor of Naturopathy diploma (1933). In 1937 he was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award by Standard Chiropractic College in San Jose, CA. In 1968 Dr. Shaklee received the Special Recognition Award from the California Secretary of State.
After years of struggle and financial and personal tragedies Dr. Shaklee persevered until his death on December 15, 1985. He overcame three life threatening health conditions, the untimely death of his 1st wife, a fire, the stock market crash, and many other challenges. After all of this, he found success as a renowned philosopher, scientist, and businessman. He left a legacy to his sons and created a business now 51 years old, that has helped and still helping, so many people.
Dr. Shaklee said, “Your future will be exactly what you think to make it.” and “The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
“Age is not a question of years.
