Shaklee product review | Energizing Soy Protein (Low-Fat, Non-GMO) December 6, 2012

Picture

Shaklee product review | Energizing Soy Protein 
(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.

Choose Shaklee Energizing Soy Protein:
The tremendous benefits of soy protein include sustained energy, vitality, and stamina — plus the benefits of naturally occurring isoflavones compounds not present in meat or dairy foods.

Who might benefit from Shaklee Energizing Soy Protein?
• 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 hours
How 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
• 50% of your daily needs for calcium
• All the amino acids,
• 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

Picture

 
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.

PRO:

  • Products contain no parabens, triclosan, sulfates, trans-fats, dyes or artificial sweeteners
  • Shaklee is a well-established company with a more than half-century history
  • Offers a variety of health products
  • Packaging of products is done so with non-toxic inks and eco-safe materials
  • Weight loss products include an organized program


CON:

  • Cinch Inch Loss Plan may not produce long-term weight loss if you don’t stick with it.
  • Meal-replacement diets may produce feelings of diet deprivation that can lead to weight regain if you don’t stick with them.
  • Consult with your doctor before starting any diet or exercise program.

Picture

 
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.

EXERCISE:
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.

CONCLUSION:
The Cinch Inch Loss Program created by Shaklee is a 12-week weight loss program that relies on consuming a regimented diet of Cinch shakes, teas, bars and supplements. As a meal-replacement diet, Cinch helps you lose fat while retaining and building lean muscle mass with its inclusion of metabolism-boosting protein in each product.

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.

Eat more often and loose weight. November 25, 2012

Picture
 
How often do you eat each day?
 

The usual answer is 2-3 times each day. Most of us are fooled into thinking that in order to lose weight we should eat as little as possible, this is simply not true.

The problem with going for an extended period without eating is simple: your body thinks you are starving. As a result your metabolism slows to conserve energy and when you do eat the food will be put into storage – also known as fat.

Want to lose fat? Eat 4 to 6 small meals a day to easily kick your metabolism into high gear.

Eating smaller meals throughout the day forces your body to burn calories all day long and the results are amazing. When you begin to eat in a “grazing” fashion your body will respond by dropping unwanted pounds.

This is probably not the first time that you have heard this tip – but, if you are like most unsatisfied fitness enthusiasts, then you simply don’t do it. Why not? As far as weight 1oss tips go, this is about as easy at they get…so why the resistance? Here are the top 3 excuses:

I don’t have the time:


We all know that, no matter how stressful or demanding your job is, you can still find 5 minutes every few hours for a snack. The issue here is not that you don’t have the time – it is that you just aren’t making it. Sure, old habits are hard to break and maybe you have a set time that you like to eat everyday. That is fine – don’t change the usual mealtimes, just add a couple of snacks throughout the day to keep from going hours on end without food, and then eat a little less at your regularly scheduled meals.

I tried it and it didn’t work:


I simply don’t believe it. There is no way that you really tried it and it didn’t work. The formula is simple: small meals every 4-6 hours. Emphasis on the word small. These aren’t four course meals…If this is your story then read on for a sure-fire plan to make this tip work for you.

I forget to eat:


When you first start eating 4-6 small meals instead of 2-3 there will be a bit of an adjustment time. If your body is used to going for hours on end without food, then you may not feel hungry when it is time for your next small meal. The key here is to be as organized as possible. Think ahead and pack small meals so that they are ready to go. With a little effort you will be eating every few hours like clockwork.

Your Fool-Proof Plan:


Eat small nutritious meals every 3 hours throughout the day, eat your first within 30 minutes of waking.
Make sure that each meal contains quality protein, complex carbohydrates, mono-unsaturated fats and fiber.
Your goal is to eat more often, not more calories each day.
Keep a food log – write down what you eat when you eat it and take time to review your progress.
What should you eat? Whole grains, fresh fruits, lean protein and veggies.

I encourage you to use this powerful weight 1oss strategy in your own quest for a fit and healthy lifestyle.

Last but not least, Look at a program like the Shaklee 180 program to help you along the way with Healthy lean snacks and meal replacements that really Satisfy your cravings.

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.

Who is Dr. Shaklee?


Picture

DR. FORREST C. SHAKLEE & THE SHAKLEE HISTORY:
Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee founded Shaklee in 1956 at age 61 and lived to see it transformed into a Fortune 500 company during his 80s. A man of many talents, Dr. Shaklee’s diverse career path included chiropractor, inventor, author, pastor and radio personality. Each experience helped shape his vision. Today, Shaklee’s “Better You. Better World.™” philosophy directly reflects Dr. Shaklee’s initial vision.

A LIFE OF PASSIONS:
The young Dr. Shaklee’s interest in health started because of a childhood illness: tuberculosis. Instead of hospitals or medicines, his treatment was rest, nutritious food and spending hours outdoors in the Iowa countryside. Living in Harmony with Nature® became a way of life in his formative years.Dr. Shaklee’s interest in good health led him from the fields to the lab and the exam room. He firmly believed that good nutrition was the foundation for overall health and wellness. Always experimenting, Dr. Shaklee developed techniques to extract nutrients from food. His “vitalized minerals” were introduced in 1915, before the concept of vitamins was fully understood. He went on to build successful chiropractic practices and clinics, where he learned from treating patients that good health required nurturing wellness, not just treating illness.Dr. Shaklee was also an early adopter of self-help practices. He wrote several books on the importance of positive thinking, which he copyrighted as “Thoughtsmanship”. He also taught the concepts of harmony, health and the secrets of a successful life on his own weekly radio program.

FORM FOLLOWS PHILOSOPHY:

Nutrition, prevention and the concept of positive living converged in 1956, when Dr. Shaklee and his two sons, Forrest, Jr. and Lee (Raleigh), founded Shaklee Corporation. At that time exercise was a walk to the store, processed foods were a sign of progress, and few even thought about food as nutrition—not entirely unlike today.The Shaklee family founded their company not just to earn healthy profits but also to help people live healthier lives. This simple but profound difference drove the decisions that set the company apart then and now.First, Dr. Shaklee demanded that every product should be the best of its kind and fill a real need, not just a shelf.

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.

The Dr. Shaklee story:

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.

It is a question with how you deal with those years.
To heck with yesterday!
What are you doing tomorrow?
You are at the beginning!”
