Every month should be Nutrition Month (more specifically, Natural Nutrition Month). You can measurably benefit from the healthy and healing results that optimal nutrition gives you.
At the bottom of this post is more info about a Nutrition cheat sheet we made for you. It is 24 Nutrition Solutions so that you can match up some health challenges you may be feeling with a specific nutrient you may be lacking.
Feeding your body the nutrition it needs is what determines your health. The quality of nutrition that gets into your cells does matter. We have been studying the relationship between nutrition and the state of our health since 1982 when we were first introduced to The Shaklee Corporation.
We learned way back 38 years ago that we needed natural nutrition supplements to provide that gap that we don’t get in our foods. And it has worked so well for us. The real results is that state of our health we just mentioned. It feels so much better to feel healthy, strong, young, and vibrant.
We chose Shaklee for our natural nutrition supplement brand because of the science and research (more than any other brand), the quality and safety of ingredients (more quality and safety tests than any other brand), the efficacy of the products (the only brand to do long-term supplement studies), and the guarantee (100% guaranteed to work for you – can’t get much better than that!).
Nutrition (supplement) solutions are a personal thing. Your specific needs will be different than the rest of your family or friends, but there are core nutrients we all need to make sure we get optimal amounts.
The 5 products we discuss today are targeted solutions for some very common health struggles. They are nutrition solutions for when your basic multivitamin and the nutrients in your food are not enough.
Many of us face extra struggles in our busy lives: lack of energy often, a struggle to keep mental focus many days, chronic stress, weak immune system, not getting enough sleep, and getting sick a lot.
Sometimes we need some extra nutrition boosts. These are on our list of 5.
We aren’t looking for band-aids. 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, stronger immune system, wellness, vitality, longevity. They help you with the intended benefit and then they also give you side benefits (other ways they are healthy for you!).
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, I have three options that I use on a daily basis that have healthy, natural energy. I love that they provide energy but can also provide some healthy ingredients that give my body extra nutrition.
Most days I have an iced Energizing Tea which is filled with antioxidants. You can make it warm also but I prefer mixing in water and adding some ice. My favorite flavor is Peach but I do switch flavors and have the Pomegranate or Elderberry. The fourth choice is Green Matcha flavor. All of these are made with green matcha, white, and red teas so they aren’t high in caffeine and have only 15 calories.
If you need a bigger energy boost, Sustained Energy Boost is powered by caffeine from green coffee bean extract as well as green tea extract. It also has chardonnay grape seed extract that helps with circulation throughout your body for sustained energy. The flavors are Raspberry and Pink Grapefruit. Both taste great to me and I usually we have this energy option as my morning coffee if I am away from home, or around lunch time if I haven’t had coffee that day or I didn’t sleep well and need some extra energy.
All-natural Shaklee Energy Chews are small, citrus tasting chews that are packed full of healthy nutrients that act quickly to help you feel more alert and energized.
Before Energizing Tea, I always had Shaklee Energy Chews on hand. They really helped with focus and energy and I remember also taking them for long drives as they really help you stay awake.
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. They are also gluten free.
You may prefer a chew over a glass of tea – all three of these natural energy choices work really well and, again, I love having healthy ways to enjoy extra energy.
#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.
#4: Protein Supplement
The nutrition you have every day, to stay healthy, 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 Protein sources include protein as a supplement or protein as a full meal. The Life Shake is a 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. It is available in both soy and non-soy. All of the choices can be seen at that link.
#5: The First Vitamin in the United States
Maybe you are not yet using nutrition supplements. We had to include a multivitamin because we feel THAT STRONG about taking one daily. If you don’t, would you consider looking at one? And if you do, we invite you to look at the Vita Lea difference.
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 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 40 years.
There are options with iron, without iron and an over 50 formula. What we take now is a Vitalizer strip which includes 2 Vita Lea tablets as well as a probiotic, extra vitamins B, C, D, E and omegas all inside one daily strip of tablets. All of these options can be seen on the MULTIVITAMIN page.
There you have it! 5 nutritional food supplements – additions to the food you eat every day – that deliver those extra nutrients that your body needs.
If you are looking for a very effective foundational nutrition program that bridges the gaps between what you don’t get from your food and that your body needs for optimal health, we love to refer our favorite daily nutrition program and a protein supplement. A food based multivitamin with nutrients found as close to the way they would be found in nature (in food) as possible, and a plant protein source that has multiple healthy benefits for your body, 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).
Along with these two foundation supplements, if you need extra energy, stress relief, or immune system building, the other 3 nutrients are fantastic.
