Nutrition Label Facts | Improve your health today! November 21, 2012

Picture

Eat smart with these 8 pointers:


If you are like most people then you probably glance at the Nutrition Facts label on foods once in a while. Maybe you check for the number of calories or fat grams that an item contains, or maybe you are watching something specific – like your sodium intake.

Whatever the case, it has been proven that those who pay attention to the Nutrition Facts label end up eating healthier.

The more familiar you are with the Nutritional Facts label, the more likely you will be fit and healthy.

Each Nutritional Facts label has been designed to quickly and efficiently give you all of the important facts about a food item. You just need to know what you are looking for. Read on as we break down the Nutritional Facts label into 7 important facts.

Fact #1: Serving Size:


This small detail skews the entire label if you don’t read it closely. An item may seem like it is only one serving, but the Nutritional Facts label will consider it to be 2 or 3 servings. If the label says 100 calories, but there are actually 3 servings, then you are getting a total of 300 calories. Pay close attention to what makes a serving.

Fact #2: Percent of Daily Value:

The Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000-calorie diet for healthy adults. Even if your diet is higher or lower in calories, you can still use the Percent Daily Value as a guide. For example, the Percent Daily Value can help you determine whether a food is high or low in specific nutrients:

  • If a food has 5 percent or less of a nutrient, it’s considered to be low in that nutrient.
  • If it has 20 percent or more, it’s considered to be high in that nutrient.


Fact #3: Calories:


Most people don’t have the time to count every calorie that they put in their mouth – this is understandable. However, you probably have a pretty good idea about the amount of food that you eat each day. When you approach a new item, read the calorie totals on the Nutritional Facts label, and factor the new calories into your daily intake. Steer clear of high calorie items – especially in the form of snack foods.

Fact #4: Total Fat:


By now you have undoubtedly heard that all fats were not created equal. Here is a quick 1-2-3 breakdown.

Limit your intake of Saturated Fats – this deadly fat contributes to heart disease.
Avoid Trans Fats at all costs – not only does it contribute to heart disease, it also raises LDL cholesterol (the bad one).
Focus on eating monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats – these don’t raise LDL cholesterol and can even help lower blood cholesterol.
As you decide what food to include in your diet, keep your eye on the type and amount of fat included in each item. Remember, all fats were not created equal.

Fact #5: Total Sodium:
Sodium free or no sodium Less than 5 milligrams of sodium and no sodium chloride in ingredients
Very low sodium 35 milligrams or less of sodium
Low sodium 140 milligrams or less of sodium
Reduced or less sodium At least 25 percent less sodium than the regular product

Fact #6: Total Carbohydrates:


Though zero carb diets are losing their momentum, you may have been influenced by the idea that all carbohydrates will make you fat. That is simply not true. It is true, however that some carbohydrates are healthier than others. In fact, medical experts think that excess consumption of refined carbohydrates (such as soda pop, white rice, and white flour) are one of the reasons behind the rise of obesity we see today.

Choose fibrous, complex carbohydrates over sugary, simple carbohydrates.

Fact #7: Protein:


The fact stands that most of us are getting plenty of protein in our diet. The problem arises when we examine the source of this protein. Meats and dairy products that are high full of fat may be filled with protein, but they aren’t the healthiest form of protein. Choose protein from lean meats, dry beans, poultry, and low fat/fat free dairy products.

Fact 8: The Good Stuff (Vitamins & Minerals):


Directly beneath the protein count on the Nutritional Facts label you will see the percent daily value of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium and Iron that the food item contains. These numbers are easily overlooked, but hold great importance to your overall health. The more nutrient-rich food items provide you with the greatest benefit per calorie. Compare food brands and choose the most nutrient-rich option.

Now it’s time to evaluate your lifestyle!


Now that you understand the Nutritional Facts label on your food, you may still have questions about how to change your fitness level. Eating right is just one part of the equation in your quest for a healthy, fit body.  If you have questions about how you can get into the best shape of your life, please contact us today.

Let Shaklee help you take control of your blood sugar today. / Glucose Regulation Complex. November 19, 2012

Here are a few simple preventative measures you can take to help you stay healthy in the future. 

This is part of our commitment toward helping you achieve a better, healthier tomorrow with Shaklee as your foundation.

Consider these Five tips to retain a normal blood sugar level



Picture

1) Achieve a healthy weight

In a properly functioning body, insulin, a hormone made by your pancreas, helps transport glucose into the cells of the body so it can be use for energy. However, in overweight individuals, cells of the body can become resistant to insulin’s action. One of the best ways to retain normal blood sugar levels is to achieve a healthy weight. Try the Cinch® Inch Loss Plan, an effective and clinically tested program powered by leucine, an amino acid that helps preserve your muscle while you lose body fat.


Picture

2) Eat foods with a low glycemic index


When you’re constantly on the run, it’s easy to forget about giving your body the proper nutrition it needs. You may find yourself reaching for a bag of cookies, which most likely have a high glycemic index (GI), meaning the carbohydrates in those cookies are quickly broken down to glucose and released into the bloodstream. This quick release can then lead to a sharp rise in blood sugar, followed by a sharp drop in blood sugar leaving you with feelings of low energy. Help retain normal blood sugar levels by eating foods that have a low GI. Cinch® Shakes and Meal-in-a-Bars are a great alternative because they taste great, fill you up and give your body the sustained energy it needs.


Picture

3) Enhance your health

So, your at a healthy weight and your blood sugar is where you want it to be. What else? How about the health of your heart, brain, digestive system, and other body parts? Keep the healthy momentum going and remember to take your vitamins and minerals on a daily basis. Shaklee Vitalizer™ is the perfect supplement for daily nutritional support. It’s 80 bio-optimized, clinically proven nutrients that enhance immunity, protect your DNA, and help manage your stress. It contains more than 20 antioxidant compounds and essential vitamins and minerals you need for a comprehensive approach to health, wellness, and vitality.*


Picture

4) Additional botanical support

Certain minerals and botanicals have been scientifically shown to help retain normal blood sugar levels. These include banaba leaf extract, which helps stimulate glucose uptake, and chromium, a mineral essential to insulin function. Shaklee Glucose Regulation Complex® contains these plus other normal blood sugar supporting ingredients including magnesium, vanadium, zinc, taurine, and alpha lipoic acid.*


Picture

5) Stay active

Last, but not least, stay active. Try to get in 30 minutes of regular physical activity, such as brisk walking, bicycling or swimming most days of the week. If your busy schedule won’t allow that, break your activity into sessions–10 minutes in the morning, 10 in the afternoon, and a short 10 minute walk in the evening. Being more active will not only make you feel good, it will enhance your body’s ability to use insulin and help you maintain a healthy weight.



Picture

Lessen Your Cravings and Maintain Your Energy Levels:

Glucose Regulation Complex offers a diverse set of nutrients that provide natural support for efficient glucose metabolism. Alpha lipoic acid, for example, helps make your cells more responsive to insulin so they get the energy they need. Vanadium works with chromium, magnesium, and zinc to help balance your blood sugar, preventing energy ups and downs.*

With Glucose Regulation Complex, you’ll regulate your blood glucose more efficiently. You’ll have more energy and fewer food cravings. By retaining normal blood sugar levels, you’ll even be contributing to overall health.*

Our Favorite Shaklee Products

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

(Shaklee Product Line

Our favorites are very similar to some of Shaklee’s 
most loved products:


Picture

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!*


Picture

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!


Picture

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.


Picture

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!


Picture

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.*


Picture

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.


Picture

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.


Picture

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.


Picture

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!


Picture

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!
