Vitamins, why?

Recently the media started telling us that vitamins where useless and most likely dangerous. I AGREE! For the larger percentage of supplements available to the public or prescribed for that matter. 
You see some years ago there was this 20 year long landmark study completed by UC Berkley that used 3 groups of people.
1. no supplement users
2. basic over the counter store bought multivitamin
3. Shaklee Vitamins
*I think it is important to explain that Shaklee did not pay for this study, they were invited by Berkley to participate. Other companies say they have done studies, but they are typically in house trials with no  real 3rd party clinical research performed, Shaklee has over 100 peer reviewed medical journals boasting about the research and results.
Amazingly group 1 out performed group 2. WHAT? Yes, that means that taking synthetic, chemical based vitamins are actually more harmful, this study proved it, long before media started saying anything.
Can you guess which group out performed group 1 & 2? YUP, group 3, Shaklee!

Shaklee vitamins users out performed the others in every category. 

So, why isn't the media telling the public this scientifically proven fact?
I have NO idea other than to say, don't believe everything you hear on the!
We must be our own advocates and do our own research, 
start researching SHAKLEE is what I tell folks.
{I have faith it will be broadcasted eventually}
Without any hesitation we use Vitalizer from Shaklee
{in fact we use many products from Shaklee because we can trust the company}

Vitalizer has 80 bio-optimized nutrients clinically proven to create a foundation for a longer, healthier life. What does bio-optimized mean? In a nutshell, within 30 minutes after consuming the vitalizer the nutrients and minerals can be directly detected in your blood! This means that it is being quickly absorbed and carried to the right parts of your body.
Why Should you take Vitalizer?
Take Vitalizer as directed on product labeling once a day every day. The S.M.A.R.T. delivery system eliminates the concern about taking too much of any one nutrient at one time. However, if you are accustomed to splitting your dietary supplement intake throughout the day, you may also take this approach with Vitalizer. 

Vitalizer contains:

Vita Lea

Because most of us do not get all the nutrients we need from diet alone – AND- the American Medical association recommends that every adult take a multivitamin/multimineral supplement daily to prevent chronic diseases.

Sustained Release B – C Complex:
Vitamin C
Because vitamin C helps protect us from the dangerous free radicals which increase our risk of cancer and other degenerative diseases -AND- many of us do not get enough vitamin C from our diet.
B Complex
Because recent research has shown that inadequate intake of B vitamins can lead to a buildup of homocysteine in the blood which may increase the risk of dementia, heart disease and stroke -AND- most of us do not get enough B vitamins in our diet
Because Caroto-E-Omega contains all 6 of the essential carotenoids found in those fresh fruits and vegetable that we are not eating on a regular basis – AND – the carotenoids in Caroto-E-Omega have been shown to reduce risk factors associated with cancer, heart disease, and eye disease.
Vitamin E
Because Caroto-E-Omega contains all 8 naturally occurring forms of vitamin E in optimum balance. Clinical studies have shown that supplementation with vitamin E reduces the risk factors associated with many diseases and boosts the immune system -AND- we cannot get the amount of vitamin E used in the clinical studies from our diet alone.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Because Caroto-E-Omega contains all 7 naturally occurring omega-3 fatty acids in an ultra-high purity form. Heart disease, inflammatory diseases and migraines affect millions of Americans -AND- clinical studies show that omega-3 fatty acids reduce the risk of heart attack, inflammation & migraines, but cold water fish, which are the best dietary sources of omega-3 fatty acids are often contaminated with heavy metals, dioxin and/or pesticides.
Optiflora Probiotic
When harmful bacteria and yeast take up residence in our intestine, they metabolize the food that we eat into cancer causing substances and other toxins that harm our body and weaken our immune system – AND – Optiflora pearls contain Acidophilus and Bifidus, essential friendly bacteria that crowd the harmful bacteria & yeast out of our intestines. Optiflora guarantees delivery of 500 million live beneficial microflora to the intestines, due to its unique triple encapsulation which protects these essential bacteria from the acidity of the stomach.

Depending on your sex and age, you have different nutritional needs at different times in your life. 

It’s not a one-size-fits-all when it comes to key nutrients. 

That’s why it’s so important to find the right supplementation formulation customized for your specific needs based on gender and age.

    Vitalizer Men is formulated with key nutrients to help meet the specific health needs of today’s healthy, active man including benefits for*:
  1. Heart health—with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E
    Prostate health—with more lycopene, plus zinc** Immune health—high in vitamins C and D, plus zinc Physical energy—high in all eight essential B vitamins Joint health—high in vitamin C, plus manganese
    Muscle function—with more magnesium, plus calcium** Digestive health—with probiotics

    Healthy blood pressure—with omega-3 fatty acids and magnesium

    Vitalizer Women is formulated with key nutrients to help meet the specific health needs of today’s healthy, active woman including benefits for*:
    Bone health—high in calcium and vitamins D and K

    Breast health—with more vitamin D**
    Heart health—with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E Immune health—high in vitamins C and D, plus zinc
    Physical energy—high in all eight essential B vitamins Reproductive health—high in folic acid, iron, and calcium Digestive health—with probiotics

    Healthy aging—with N-acetylcysteine, more vitamin B12, and vitamins C and D*

    Healthy vision—with lutein and vitamin A
    Digestive health—with probiotics
    Physical energy—with all eight essential B vitamins 
    Why no vitamin K? Because Vitamin K plays a role in the blood clotting
    process, Vitamin K intake may be a concern for people who
    take prescription blood thinning medications. Vitalizer Gold provides 100 mcg of Vitamin K, therefore we also offer Vitalizer Gold without vitamin K as an alternative for people who take prescription blood thinning medications and have been advised by their doctor to avoid supplements with added vitamin K.

    Is Vitalizer gluten free?
    What is the Shaklee Micronutrient Advanced Release Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) system?

    To help ensure enhanced absorption, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients should be delivered to specific regions of your digestive system, where they’ll have the most impact. The Shaklee science team didn’t just research what should go into Vitalizer, they also researched how and where those nutrients would be best absorbed by the body. 

  2. What is the Shaklee Landmark Study?
  3. Shaklee scientists have based the formulation of Vitalizer on 12 published Shaklee clinical studies, including a first-of-its- kind Landmark Study. In this groundbreaking study, Shaklee collaborated with researchers from the UC Berkeley School of Public Health to evaluate long term Shaklee supplement users. Results of that study were published in Nutrition Journal and showed that the people who took Shaklee supplements had markedly better health than either single multi-vitamin or non- supplement users.

I hope this helps to debunk the media hype that is spreading like wildfire lately, if you still have questions please feel free to contact me.

Have a great day,
