You Are What You Eat: and that includes supplements

Food in. Every day. What kind of health are you getting out?


You Are What You Eat


The diet that you eat every day plays a huge role in your health results. It makes sense because junk in, and there’s a good chance that there will be junk out. There’s a whole lot of junk health in this country today.

Is at easy as eating well every day? Maybe not, but it can help. And what is eating well anyway? Do you have to buy the best quality of every type of food? I don’t think so.

I believe it’s more about making more better choices than bad choices. Eating more fresh foods, and less convenience or processed foods will help. That doesn’t mean you have to buy all organic or food from a health food store.

To start eating better, maybe it will help to concentrate on eating less junk.

We know what the bad food choices are. If you don’t, do some research online and you will quickly learn. The high fat, high sugar, high sodium, processed, and convenience choices are bad. Those are the foods that you want to limit in your daily food intake.

Good foods are fresh vegetables and fruit, lean protein sources, healthy grains; and it’s not as hard as you think to eat more of those. Even eating out is easier because restaurants and even fast food chains are offering salads and other healthier choices.




For all of my adult life I have been faithful, daily, to taking natural supplements. They help me fill the gaps between eating well, and I don’t claim to eat the best every day (but I try to make more better choices).

It can be frustrating to (still) see doctors discourage taking vitamins – over 30 years after I have been such a believer. More doctors are supporting vitamins today than way back then, but not enough. I can understand one reason why:

doctors don’t know what kind of vitamins you are going to take if they tell you to take a multivitamin or take some extra B vitamins..

This is important because there is a lot of ‘junk’ out there in the supplement world as well. And we now have a long term supplement study that shows it can be worse for your health to take a certain type of vitamin than to take no vitamin at all.

At the same time, that 20 year landmark supplement study showed that it is far better for you to take an all-natural food supplement than to take none at all, or to take a synthetic choice.

The landmark study shows fantastic results for one company, that happens to be the pioneer of the vitamin and supplement industry in the United States. In fact, we celebrated 100 years of vitamins this year. That’s impressive to me and it’s the company that I have been with for almost 34 years.

The reason I choose The Shaklee Corporation for all of my natural nutrition supplement needs is because they are the best, and the results you want are guaranteed. Shaklee only makes products that they can prove will work in your body. That takes away virtually any risk, and there is always a 100% money back guarantee.

Supplements that I take every day:

Life Strip (includes multivitamin, omega-3 fatty acids, resveratrol + polyphenols, b complex, vitamin c and more)

Life Shake (lean soy protein + probiotic and pre-biotic)


Extra B-Comples

Extra Vitamin E
