Shaklee Vitamins & Supplement Facts
Shaklee is a company that has been producing natural nutrition products for over 50 years. According to its website, the founder of Shaklee, Dr. Forrest Shaklee created the one of the first multivitamins in the world. Shaklee now produces several types of multivitamins and weight management products designed to help people get or stay healthy. While many people consume these products to help them lose weight, you should always consult a physician before you take any type of supplement.
Shaklee produces a multi-vitamin called Vitalizer, which the company claims is the foundation for a longer, healthier life. Viatalizer is a one a day vitamin, which Shaklee maintains increases vitality, enhances immunity, aids in stress management, supports heart and brain health, and has many other benefits to help people feel better.
According to Shaklee, Vitalizer contains an anti-oxidant spectrum, which is said to help protect cells, tissues and organs against aging as well as provide protection against free radical damage. Vitalizer also contains seven omega-threes, which Shaklee claims can help to reduce the risk of heart disease. Vitalizer vitamins also contain vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin B, probiotics and anti-aging nutrients. Full ingredient lists for all Shaklee products can be found on the National Library of Medicine website.
Anti Aging Supplement
Shaklee produces a cellular anti-aging tonic called Vivix, which they claim impacts the four key mechanisms in cellular aging. Shaklee asserts that, in a 30-day supply, vivix contains the equivalent amount of resveratrol that is in 3,000 glasses of red wine. According to scientists at Harvard Medical School, there is evidence that resveratrol can prevent or delay the onset of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and inflammation and viral infection.
Weight Loss Supplement
Shaklee manufactures a weight loss product called Cinch that contains an amino acid called leucine. Leucine is found in protein rich food and helps build muscle. Shaklee claims that Cinch allows you to maintain the muscle you have, burn unnecessary fat, and therefore lose weight and inches. Cinch is available in a starter kit, which includes shakes, snack bars, a three-in-one boost supplement, and a tea mix. Each of these products can also be purchased separately.
Shaklee has conducted 12 clinical trials supporting its vitalizer product. Shaklee also carried out a 50th anniversary study on its multi-vitamin, which claims Shaklee supplement users maintained normal levels of cholesterol and blood pressure.
