Curious if it really matters what brand of supplements you use? The proof is in a 20 year study conducted by UC Berkeley. The most shocking part? Check out the areas of heart attack, stroke, cancer, and diabetes – 

you are better off taking NO supplements than taking other brands of supplements.

ABSTRACT (PROVISIONAL)BACKGROUND:
Dietary supplement use in the United States is prevalent and represents an important source of nutrition. However, little is known about individuals who routinely consume multiple dietary supplements. This study describes the dietary supplement usage patterns, health, and nutritional status of long-term multiple dietary supplement users, and where possible makes comparisons to non-users and multivitamin/mineral supplement users.METHODS:
Using a cross-sectional study design, information was obtained by online questionnaires and physical examination (fasting blood, blood pressure, body weight) from a convenience sample of long-term users of multiple dietary supplements manufactured by Shaklee Corporation (Multiple Supp users, n=278). Data for non-users (No Supp users, n=602) and multivitamin/mineral supplement users (Single Supp users, n=176) were obtained from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2001-2002 and NHANES III 1988-1994. Logistic regression methods were used to estimate odds ratios with 95% confidence intervals.RESULTS:
Dietary supplements consumed on a daily basis by more than 50% of Multiple Supp users included a multivitamin/mineral, B-complex, vitamin C, carotenoids, vitamin E, calcium with vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, flavonoids, lecithin, alfalfa, coenzyme Q10 with resveratrol, glucosamine, and a herbal immune supplement. The majority of women also consumed gamma linolenic acid and a probiotic supplement, whereas men also consumed zinc, garlic, saw palmetto, and a soy protein supplement. Serum nutrient concentrations generally increased with increasing dietary supplement use. After adjustment for age, gender, income, education and body mass index, greater degree of supplement use was associated with more favorable concentrations of serum homocysteine, C-reactive protein, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglycerides, as well as lower risk of prevalent elevated blood pressure and diabetes.CONCLUSIONS:
This group of long-term multiple dietary supplement users consumed a broad array of vitamin/mineral, herbal, and condition-specific dietary supplements on a daily basis. They were more likely to have optimal concentrations of chronic disease-related biomarkers, and less likely to have suboptimal blood nutrient concentrations, elevated blood pressure, and diabetes compared to non-users and multivitamin/mineral users. These findings should be confirmed by studying the dietary supplement usage patterns, health, and nutritional status of other groups of heavy users of dietary supplements.Author Affiliations:

(Shaklee Product LineOur favorites are very similar to some of 

Shaklee’s most loved products:

 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!*

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!


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!
