Why add PROTEIN to your day?

As a mother of 2 very active boys, wife to an inner city Police Officer (can you say stressful?) and a business women (own & operate a licensed child day care & a growing Shaklee business), I know what it means to be stretched thin. 
Shaklee soy has helped me to stay o track with my nutritional and weight goals, saved me tons of time and has sustained my energy level to keep up with my busy life!

Are You Concerned About the
Nutritional Content of Your Food?
If so, you’re not alone. A 1999 survey indicated that 87% of consumers reported changing their eating habits due to specific health concerns. Among the greatest worries were heart health and dietary cholesterol intake. The major dietary concern (reported by almost half of those surveyed) was reducing fat.1
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 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 Soy Protein products are also good sources of calcium and iron. 

Shaklee Soy Protein also 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. 

Concerns about safety?
Some soy protein products are alcohol-processed, which removes isoflavones. 
Shaklee Soy Protein is water- washed to retain naturally occurring isoflavones such as genistein and daidzein. 
Shaklee uses 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.

How Does Shaklee 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 “roller- coaster” 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. 

My family has begun adopting the notion that consuming mostly plant based protein is much healthier for us. We are in no way vegan, we enjoy organic chicken, wild caught seafood & even sometimes grass fed, antibiotic free beef.
It's been about making healthier choices and incorporating healthy Shaklee Soy into our daily routines have saved us time, money and improved our health.
