Shaklee’s Active Nutrition Athletes naturally want to perform at peak levels. Unfortunately some turn to steroids, which have serious negative health effects, to try to get a competitive edge. There is a better way—the Shaklee way.Shaklee Active Nutrition products were designed to help ambitious athletes achieve extraordinary goals. Going beyond what was thought possible; Shaklee formulas have powered record-breaking achievements for human-powered flight and Mt. Everest expeditions.
It’s no coincidence that Shaklee nutrition has been at the center of eight of Time-Life’s Top 25 Greatest Adventures of All Time. And that athletes powered by Shaklee nutrition have brought home over 30 Olympic Gold medals.Champion athletes understand the important role nutrition plays in helping to achieve peak performance. Shaklee Active Nutrition products such as Physique Workout Maximizer Supplement, Shaklee Performance Maximum Endurance Sports Drink, Shaklee Meal Shakes, Shaklee Multi Munch Protein Boost Energy Bar and Carbo-Crunch Energizing Snack Bars were designed with the needs of athletes in mind. "Shaklee products assist the U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding athletes to train and compete in optimal condition." -- Andy Walshe, Assistant Athletic Director, Sports Science U.S.S.A.Shaklee Physique, Shaklee Performance and Carbo-Crunch bars were all clinically tested at the University of Texas by Dr. John Ivy, one of the top researchers in the world in exercise physiology.
The results of the study on Carbo-Crunch and Shaklee Performance showed that athletes were able to significantly extend their endurance; while Ivy's most recent clinical with Physique is regarded as a landmark study in post-exercise recovery. Shaklee Physique was specifically formulated by Shaklee’s Research and Development scientists to be a sports drink that delivers well-supplied nutrients to the body, and optimizes the post- exercise anabolic state for increased body building and enhanced energy return. It will dramatically enhance recovery and rebuilding if taken immediately after a workout as it replaces these important macronutrients with a unique balance that’s been shown to stimulate the body's natural anabolic hormone insulin. It is a completely natural food product, contains only nutrients which are GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) as determined by the FDA, and is free of all drugs, hormones, and steroids. With
Shaklee’s Physique athletes not only get the protein and carbohydrates they need, but they also stimulate the body's metabolic machinery to make use of those nutrients. Physique represents a state-of-the art approach to maximizing the benefits of a workout and recovering afterwards.
Shaklee Performance® Maximum Endurance Sports Drink aids in improving endurance, and quicker recovery, by replacing bodily fluids. Because Shaklee Performance is formulated with fructose, which is slowly metabolized by the body, one's stamina can be sustained for a considerably longer period than sports drinks lacking this important muscle fuel.
Furthermore, Shaklee Performance provides glucose for immediate energy and maltodextrin as a highly concentrated source of bioavailable carbohydrates. In one clinical study, a group of cyclists consumed either water or Shaklee Performance® after 3 hours of vigorous cycling. Afterwards, they continued to cycle at a faster speed. The cyclists that drank only water lasted just 2 minutes before succumbing to fatigue, while the Shaklee Performance® drinkers lasted over 15 times longer!
Every moment you push your body to the max, you are losing important fluids, burning through your energy reserves, and subjecting your body to fatigue and pain. In fact, professional athletes can sweat away as much as 5-8 pounds during a game or event. Ask any professional athlete, and he or she will tell you how important it is to stay hydrated, maintain energy, and recover quickly. It takes more than skill to be the best you can be. It takes proper nutrition - Shaklee Active Nutrition - to get the competitive edge.

Summertime Skin Protection
The days are getting longer, filled with more sun and summer fun. Drag out those flip flops..It's time to get the skin ready to be seen.For those dry patches of skin- try Shaklee's wonderful herbal blend "green cream" as I call it.
Tough Skin Deserves a Soft Solution, Dry, chapped, rough skin is no match for this soothing cream, which softens even the hardest, callused skin on knees, elbows, and feet. Its cooling, mentholated, non-greasy formula vanishes as you massage it in, leaving skin feeling smooth and refreshed. http://www.shaklee.net/barefoot/product/31751
Natural Protection for a Sunny Day- Ask any dermatologist what the number one skin care essential is, and they'll say a quality sunscreen with a high level of sun protection. Nothing is more important to the quality and health of your skin than sunscreen.
Enfuselle SPF 30 for the body is designed for all skin types, including the most sensitive skin, this patented, waterproof, oil-free sunscreen smoothes easily into your skin and absorbs quickly, without leaving a sticky residue. Soothing and moisturizing, it does not irritate the skin. Patented Vital-Repair+® contains antioxidant vitamins and botanicals. The formula offers UVA and UVB protection and adds an extra defense against premature skin aging. http://www.shaklee.net/barefoot/product/32519

Smoothes vertical dryness lines and prevents peeling and chapping. http://www.shaklee.net/barefoot/product/32517
Pesticide Protection- Going barefoot may seem blissful, but remember 80% of what touches the skin enters your body. I'm probably the first to take off my shoes and go barefoot. At our farm I know it's safe... we use only natural safe products!Here's my confession... when I travel it is a different story... many hotels spray bedroom carpets- and especially bathroom floors- with pesticide's to keep bugs at bay. May I make a suggestion... when you travel pack your slippers or flip flops while you're on the road to avoid exposure from potentially harmful elements!

Shaklee Testimonial: High School Football, Knee Injury and Shaklee
“On the third day of football as a high school senior I re-injured my left knee, which had been giving me problems for two years. The swelling was severe and the more I played, the worse the pain and swelling became. A specialist told me that I had probably torn some cartilage and that I needed surgery. Being a captain, I wanted to keep playing, so the surgery was planned for the end of the season.
I supplemented with Shaklee Protein, Vita-Lea, B-Complex, Vita-E, Super Cal Mag Plus, Formula I, Vita-C, Lecithin, Essential Omega-3 Complex and Alfalfa. The doctor told me that medication would not help until I quit playing and that the swelling would go down when the cartilage was repaired. We decided to try Shaklee’s Physique as we thought it might help healing since it was supposed to help repair strained muscle tissue for weightlifters. After only three days taking the Physique three times a day, the swelling was almost totally gone even though I was still playing football!At the end of the season I had the surgery. After seeing the extent of the tear the doctor was amazed that I had been able to play at all. He removed about ¼ of the cartilage because it was irritating the joint.
I was told to stay on crutches for five days, but I only used those two days and didn’t even need the pain pills. Eight days later the doctor wrote on his chart: “Matt is now eight days following partial lateral meniscetomy for locked chronic bucket handle tear. Amazingly he had no effusion, full motion, good strength. The wounds are nicely healed. Sutures are out.” The doctor told me that I was at least three weeks ahead of schedule in healing. We told him about the Shaklee supplements and the Physique and he admitted he was impressed. Playing injured, I made all-conference for our team and was selected to be on the All Area first team defense. I began lifting regularly and I weigh between 145-150 pounds. At the beginning of football season I could bench 205 pounds. After surgery I was benching 190 pounds, but after 2 ½ weeks of using Shaklee Physique 3 to 4 times a day (after lifting, 2 hours later, before bed) I was able to bench 245 pounds. I really believe Shaklee’s Physique made a big difference and I will definitely continue to use it and recommend it.” –Matt Larson
