Nutrition Month

In honor of Nutrition Month (we prefer to celebrate as Natural Nutrition Month) we look at 5 really effective, natural nutrition solutions that can help you every single day. We use them and get great results and love to share them if they can help you too.

Many of us face the same struggles in our busy lives:  lack of energy, a struggle to keep mental focus all day, stress, getting enough sleep, and fighting off illnesses. And most of us want to stay healthy overall.

We are not looking for bandaids either. Nutrition can help heal the body and does not have side effects that medications do. All of these are natural solutions that are available to use every day to get the kind of results you are looking for:  energy, better health, wellness, vitality, longevity.

Let’s take a look at the Fabulous 5!

Real Solutions You Can Use Daily Because They Work


#1:  Energy + Focus

Do you have energy dips or even crashes? It can be hard to stay energized and focused all day.

If you are looking for more endurance so that you can stay mentally focused and have energy all day long, all-natural Shaklee Energy Chews can help. They are small, citrus tasting chews that are packed full of healthy nutrients that act quickly to help you feel more alert and energized.


Look what is in Energy Chews:  natural green tea extract, plus healthy nutrients L-tyrosine, L-theanine, B vitamins and vitamin D.

What’s not in Energy Chews are artificial anything:  sweeteners, flavors, colors and no added preservatives. Shaklee Energy Chews are also gluten free.

#2:  Stress Relief

Awe STRESS. It’s not fun right? But most of us have it right? The problem we can get into is that our bodies are designed to have breaks from stress (as our ancestors did with the whole flight or fight stress response), and today we don’t get those breaks. We have ongoing stress and our body processes don’t get an opportunity to normalize. Stress hormones continue to circulate in our blood stream and create these stress symptoms that really affect our health and well being.

The side effects of anxiety or stress prescription medications are mostly bothersome, unwanted, and even intolerable. So if it is an option for you to be on these meds or look for a more natural solution without side effects, Stress Relief Complex from the #1 Natural Nutrition Company in America is one such option.

Shaklee is the brand who invented the multi vitamin 100 years ago and who still does natural nutrition best.  Stress Relief Complex is an all-natural, plant-based, whole-food STRESS RELIEF SUPPLEMENT that can help you feel more relaxed in 30 minutes or less.  What’s in Stress Relief Complex are healthy nutrients with other ‘side benefits’:  Beta sitosterol, L-Theanine, L-Tyrosine and Ashwagandha Root Extract.

#3:  Immune Boost

Are you struggling this winter with viruses, infections or other illnesses?

Do you feel like you’ve been sick more often this year – as soon as you get over one thing you get something else, or even get the same symptoms back again?

Doctors are hearing these complaints BIG TIME and some are saying that a percentage of these ongoing sicknesses may be allergy related.

Our weather patterns are changing and that may contribute – what is that wind blowing in anyway?!! Also, in the winter we tend to get sick more often due to how germs and other substances that can make us sick are suspended (sort of held in mid-air) in the indoor air we breathe – more so than at other times of the year.

One of  the most powerful ways to improve your immune system is with a very unique, all-natural, plant-based supplement that increases the natural interferon in your body. Only one company makes a product like this, and (you guessed it) it’s the #1 Natural Nutrition Company in America.  You can learn more about it here:  Shaklee Nutriferon.

Shaklee Effect

#4:  Everyday Energy

The energy you have every day, to get through your day, is powered a great deal by what you eat. Another important consideration is what you eat specifically in the morning.

If your breakfast consists of a lot of sugar and a lot of bad carbs, you’re going to have an energy crash. But did you know that if you concentrate more on protein in your morning meal, you won’t have that crash, you will feel satisfied all morning long (all the way to lunch without a sugar break), and you will be setting up your blood sugar levels for a healthier day because it just might help you avoid your sugar or carb cravings later in the day.

Our favorite way to start the day is with a protein shake. Whether you like soy, non soy, vegan (with no carbs) or whey – it is such a healthy way to do breakfast. Shaklee Life Shake is a very unique soy protein complete-meal shake in that it has 16 grams of protein, precise ratios of all 9 essential amino acids, leucine to help you maintain lean protein, probiotics and omega-3 ALA – all to help you stay strong and healthy. Shaklee Life Shake is a complete meal with all the vitamins and nutrition you need in a meal.

#5:  The First Vitamin in the United States

Shaklee made the first vitamin in the U. S. over 100 years ago and it has changed over the years because the Shaklee scientists and research team keep us healthy with the most effective nutrient blend of vitamins and minerals in Shaklee Vita Lea.

Shaklee leads the industry in discovery of supplement ingredients, formulation of ingredients, quality of ingredients, delivery system for ingredients – that all work together to insure efficacy of ingredients. We have trusted our multi-vitamin choice to this brand for over 35 years and enjoy our good health because we take Vita Lea.

Final Nutrition Month takeaway: 

A very effective foundation nutrition program is a multivitamin (#5) and a protein supplement (#4). A food based multivitamin, with nutrients found as close to the way they would be found in nature (in food) as  possible, helps fill the gaps that you don’t get from your food.

Shaklee has always made the offer that you will feel better taking these two products for 30 days, or get your money back (all Shaklee products are 100% guaranteed at any time).

If you are struggling with stress, your immune system needs strengthened, or you want a healthy energy boost or mental focus boost during the day – consider one of the other 3 products above. Personally we recommend having a bag of Energy Chews on hand always. They work quick and who wouldn’t benefit from feeling more alert at certain points during the day. Plus they are such a better alternative to a high caffeine or high sugar energy drink.
