The Battle Within: Free Radicals vs. Antioxidants
There’s a battle being waged inside you with significant implications on how you age and the overall quality of your long-term health. In one corner are free radicals. Free radicals cause damage to the cells and DNA in our bodies. Free radical damage has been linked to accelerated aging, cataracts, heart disease, many forms of cancer and more. Every day our body’s normal metabolism produces billions of chemical reactions that lead to the creation of free radicals. Stress only increases the amount of free radicals your body produces. Environment factors like the exposure to chemicals and pollutants, even sunlight today, creates more and more free radicals.
In fact, research shows that in today’s modern world an average of 91 industrial chemicals may accumulate in our bodies over a lifetime. In the other corner are antioxidants. Born of powerful nutrients from a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, antioxidants protect cells from free radical damage. Antioxidants basically attack free radicals turning them back into normal molecules. To complicate things further, there are different types of antioxidants, each of which combats different types of free radicals. That’s why for optimal health, comprehensive antioxidant protection is critical--you need a full spectrum of antioxidants (Vitamin C, Vitamin E, selenium, bioflavonoids, carotenoids, zinc) in your daily diet.
However, in today’s modern world, with high stress, poor diets, environmental pollutants, and longer life spans, the free radicals are winning. And the antioxidant protection from one’s diet doesn’t cover all your needs. But there is hope and good news. Phytonutrients—specialized compounds found in fruits, vegetables, and plants, especially beneficial new classes called flavonoids and carotenoids—have been discovered to provide the body with powerful antioxidant protection. Now for the first time ever, breaking research in phytonutrient science yields new secrets to achieving maximum antioxidant protection. And only Shaklee brings you this research in two revolutionary new products.
New Shaklee Product: Flavomax
Shaklee has taken antioxidant protection to a new level with the launch of new FlavoMax. FlavoMax uses standardized extracts to guarantee delivery of an unprecedented six key classes of flavonoids. Flavonoids are very potent antioxidants that have been linked to healthy blood circulation, strong capillaries, and veins and overall cardiovascular health. Flavonoids also deliver antioxidant protection to blood and blood-rich tissues, such as the liver and the intestines*.
An apple a day is no longer enough. Eating the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables is important, but the majority of us don’t come close. Also flavonoids are found in plant parts not typically consumed: seeds, peels, flowers, and bark. Finally, the average daily intake of flavonoids is only 20 mg while FlavoMax provides over 300 mg of flavonoids.
And even if you do eat the daily servings of fruits and vegetables every day, you could never get the level of antioxidant potency that’s available to you now through Shaklee supplementation. For instance, Shaklee’s new FlavoMax provides a full-spectrum of flavonoids, combining super-concentrated extracts from blueberry, elderberry, green tea, and grapeseed, among others.
To get same amount of full-spectrum flavonoids from food as you do from FlavoMax would require you to eat the following fruits and vegetables every day: 213 cherries 31 cups of blueberries 27 medium limes 31 cups shredded cabbage 2,355 medium carrots With Flavomax,
Shaklee delivers the most potent form of flavonoids on the market today. For more information on this revolutionary new product go to: http://www.shaklee.net/amcasey/product/20654
FlavoMax tip: Now you can have a powerful fruit and vegetable drink in an instant. Just take a glass of water, twist open a FlavoMax capsule and pour the contents in, stir – and presto! You’ve got a great tea-like tasting beverage and an easy way to add the rich flavonoids of FlavoMax without swallowing a pill!
New & Improved Multi-Carotenoid CarotoMax
Now, you can get the benefits of six of the most beneficial key carotenoids for even greater anti-oxidant protection with Shaklee’s new and improved CarotoMax. CarotoMax is a powerful antioxidant that contains unique concentrated extracts from tomatoes, microalgae, oil of palm, and marigold, among others. CarotoMax supports a strong immune system, reduces the risks for heart disease, promotes lung health, reduces risks of prostate and cervical cancer, reduces risk of macular degeneration, aids in detoxification of the liver. It helps maintain overall wellness and long-term health of the eyes, heart, skin, lungs, prostate, and cervix*.
One serving of CarotoMax provides the beta carotene equivalency of 125 bananas, the lycopene equivalency of 2,830 apricots, the carotenoid lutein and zeaxanthin content of 162 pink grapefruits, the alpha carotene of 102 cups of raspberries and the carotenoid astaxanthin from one serving of salmon. (Although commonly derived from salmon, Shaklee harvests the carotenoid Astaxanthin from marine microalgae, the purest and most potent source of it).
CarotoMax is especially beneficial for anyone who has age related macular degeneration, a high stress lifestyle, a diet that is not balanced especially lacking in fruits and vegetables, lung problems, are at risk for prostate cancer, cervical dysplasia, have heart problems, are exposed to the sun, or have a family history of cancer.

New Shaklee Product: Minerelles Nail Lacquers New Minerelles™
Nail Lacquer delivers shiny color and maximum durability for beauty without compromise. Minerelles light-reflective nail lacquer puts color, gloss, and shine—without harmful ingredients at your fingertips. Introducing ten long lasting, high-shine nail lacquers in demure to daring shades—including a French manicure combo (Alabaster and Blush Mist). These mineral-based colors are high-gloss and come in a shade range suitable for all occasions.
Minerelles Nail Lacquers are formulated without formaldehyde, toluene, and a class of ingredients called phthalates, often used in other brands. The new Minerelles Nail Lacquer line also introduces a unique dual-purpose protective Base + Top Coat combination that you can apply once as a base to clean dry nails and apply again after the final coat to seal in the color.
You can also use it alone for attractive, shiny nails. How to Apply Minerelles Nail Lacquers for best results: (shake nail colors well before using to ensure uniform nail color) 1) Apply one coat of Base+Top Coat to clean, dry nails to provide a smooth surface to the nail. Allow five minutes to dry. 2) Apply one coat of Minerelles Nail Color. Allow five minutes to dry.
For a deeper shade, apply a second coat of nail color and allow another five minutes to dry. 3) Finish with one coat of Base+Top Coat to seal in and extend the wear of your application, allow five minutes to dry. You can expect at least the same, and more likely, better length of wear before color fading or chipping as you would from your current brand.
Minerelles Nail Lacquers are also compatible with acrylic nails. And of course Minerelles products are not tested on animals. Whether you use nail polish from department stores or the OPI brand preferred by nail specialists, be sure to check out the new Minerelles Nail Lacquers for a natural, high-performance alternative.
