Hello Shaklee family! This week I’m in Las Vegas for our annual Shaklee Global Conference. Three days of training, team-building and renewing connections with others who care just as much about health and wellness as I do 🙂
August also marks my sixth anniversary of this website! I started blogging and wrote my first post in August 2012. Interestingly enough, that year’s Shaklee Global Conference was in Las Vegas as well. The more things change, the more they stay the same!
There are big changes to a few of Shaklee’s key product lines this year. The first one is a reformulation of Shaklee’s Life Shake. It has always been an effective protein supplement and central to the Shaklee 180 weight loss program. Shaklee is always working on improving products though, and they have been hearing feedback that our customers feel the shake has too much sugar.
Not anymore! The new Life Shake has ZERO added sugar and less than 1 gram of carbohydrate per serving. It is a great choice for those on the ketogenic diet and all of our Paleo friends. Shaklee has stopped adding probiotics to the shake (more on probiotics later) but it has a new ancient-grain-based prebiotic fiber blend to continue to support gut health. In addition, there are digestive enzymes added to also support healthy and comfortable digestion.
The Life Shake is still gluten free (all the weight loss products are) and now is completely plant based, because Shaklee was able to find a plant source of the amino acid leucine which is critical to protecting muscle mass during weight loss. It is available in soy and non-soy-based versions, four delicious flavors, and was taste-tested against the leading retail brand of protein shake, and WON. 9 out of 10 tasters in a blind taste test preferred the taste of the new Shaklee Life Shake 🙂
Several of the people who have been secretly testing the newly formulated Life Shake said they had less bloating and lost inches around their waist without really trying. One man WAS trying and lost 36 pounds in 9 weeks! Wow!
We also have four new additions to the YOUTH skin care line. I had a number of customers try the YOUTH Anti-Aging Regimen and have to stop because it irritated their skin. Shaklee has unveiled the YOUTH Hydrating Collection for those who have sensitive or dry skin or who aren’t as interested in anti-aging products! These products are also available as a package to start and as individual items to replace as you use them up.
Clinical testing is part of how Shaklee rolls, and the Hydrating products are no difference. Women had a tripling of the measurable hydration of their skin after one application of YOUTH Moisture Activating Serum. There is also a new YOUTH Moisture Lock Day Cream to lock in the moisturizing effects. Want to try it yourself? I’ll be hosting after-conference events, watch your email for your invitation! The first one will be Sunday, 8/26 at 9 AM at the Coffee Club on Broadview Road in Broadview Hts, OH.
If you enjoy pampering yourself with a facial every now and then, you’ll love these next two products. The YOUTH Hydrating Gel Mask applies soothing deep hydration, and the YOUTH Purifying Clay Mask removes impurities to reveal healthy skin. I haven’t used them myself, I’ll be able to try them when I get home. Can’t wait!
As always, Shaklee’s products are backed by an unconditional guarantee. Also, our skin care products are free of 2500 harmful or questionable ingredients so you can be confident our products are safe for your skin, responsibly sourced, and gentle for our environment.
One last product to tell you about, and that’s Shaklee’s new Optiflora DI. This is a brand new probiotic supplement that has grown out of the explosion of recent research on the effect of our microbiome on our health. Our microbiome consists of the trillions of bacteria that live in our digestive tract, oral cavity, genital tracts and on our skin. They outnumber our own cells ten-to-one and influence our health in countless ways. The research is moving FAST and it’s clear that just about every system from our digestion to our brain is affected by the health of our microbiome.
Optiflora DI contains healthy bacteria proven to support healthy digestion AND healthy immunity. With 70% of our immune system living in our gut, a healthy population of microorganisms helps keep our immune system healthy.
Shaklee has also has made big improvements to our business support that will help business people like me keep connected to our customers while on the go. Better follow up will help keep my customers supported in meeting their health goals!
If you’re one of the over 50% of people age 21 to 65 who would like to work to build your own dream instead of someone else’s, who want more time freedom or just want a side gig to earn extra income, please let me know. Shaklee’s business opportunity may very well not be right for you, it’s not right for everyone! But we won’t know until we talk it over 🙂
