Why Choose the Number One Nutritional Company?

Character, Clinical Research, Integrity, Environmentally Aware, Climate Neutral, Purity & Potency of Products, Patents, Scientific Research......Just to name a few reasons

So why choose your products based on the company making them?

As I was working on writing this website I was interested in providing the best information I could find on keeping people healthy and in the process helping to keep the planet healthy. 

In doing this I wanted to be able to suggest and recommend a product or products that would help to fulfill both those goals. 

I believe I have found a way to do both and do it in a way that I can truly be honest and not try to ‘trick or sell’ you the reader and consumer. 

I found a company that provides products that are of the highest quality, are natural, are clinically tested, and have been researched and proven to work for and with your body. They are also the first company to become climate neutral. So they make a great product and they do it in a responsible and environmentally safe way.   

They are the Number One Nutritional Company in the U.S.

So why haven’t you seen this great product on the shelves of you local grocery store? 

This is a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) company. That means the products are sold directly by Shaklee  Independent Distributors. I am one of those distributors as is my Mom, Shirley. 

Before you run away kicking and screaming, this is not a bad thing. I know a lot of us have been hounded by a neighbor or friend to buy their product or come over for a sales party.  It doesn't have to be like that. 

If you want to just be a consumer, you can go online, click on the product you want and presto it is shipped directly to you. No one hounding you or pestering you to sell, sell, sell. You don’t have to become a member, you don’t have to buy a bunch of product up front, and you can do as little or as much as you want. (read more about levels of membership)

For me, I think it is a great opportunity to have a home office and redirect some of my supermarket spending to better products that have the potential to produce income for me. 

We are all different and are looking for different things. If you want to just try the products and are looking for advice on what might work for you, then ask and we will do our best to help. If you want to go farther and get in on one of the fastest growing home business opportunities, direct selling and nutrition, then we can also help you there. 

My Mom has been working as a Shaklee Independent Distributor and in the nutrition industry for over 20 years. She is very knowledgeable and a great resource. 

I have been using various products for quite some time, but just recently hit the time in my life when it was right for me to take the next step and become a Shaklee Independent Distributor. 

The best thing I can say about the program, is there is no pressure. Buy, sell, read, learn, it is all up to you. Go at your own pace and do what is right for you. Just know that we are here to support you and are producing this site as a way of spreading the information to anyone and everyone interested. 

What follows is some information about this Corporation that I was very impressed with that I think is sometimes overlooked. If you read the pages on the website, I mention research and how important it is. As a Shaklee Independent Distributor I know and have read how the company actually does the research and backs its products. Click here to read more from the Company website.

The FDA does not regulate the vitamin and supplement industry, so be careful what you put in your body. If you are taking products to improve your health, don’t you want to use the best products? Products that will actually do what they say. 

The Number One Nutritional Company in the U.S. was formed in 1956 and has been a leading provider of premium quality, natural, environmentally friendly nutrition, personal care, and household products ever since. Their brand is synonymous with high quality and great effectiveness, representing one of the most well established names in the nutritional supplement and direct selling industries. 

The company was started over 50 years ago by a pioneer in the vitamin and supplement industry.  He was a man of many diverse and passionate beliefs. 

Long before biodegradability was an issue, he helped to introduce this concept with his revolutionary household cleaner.  It was one of the first official Earth Day products.  His company has continued to create innovative products that improve the health of people and the planet. 

Dr. Shaklee realized the complementary strengths of science and nature and how they had incomparable healing power. He also believed in an uncompromising respect for the environment, decades before words like global warming and biodegradable even appeared in our vocabulary. 

From these founding principals, this Doctor created natural food products and household cleaners that were the best of science and nature combined - and in this process, set his company on a path of Creating Healthier Lives. 

In 2000, this 'Green' Company became the first company to receive official Climate Neutral Certification. This means that Shaklee has invested in proactive external offset projects to zero out their global climate impact. Click here to learn more about Climate Neutral and the Climate Leaders Program. 

These are some of the awards this Company has received for its environmental leadership:

  • 2003 Nutritional Business Journal "Gold" Award for Environment & Sustainability 
  • 2003 National Association of Environmental Professionals (NAEP) National Environmental Excellence Award, Environmental Stewardship category

In a world filled with network marketing, this company is also a Leading Member of the DSA. They joined the modern Direct Selling Association in 1964. By doing this they are committed to ethical business practices and consumer services. The DSA Code of Ethics ensures that member companies will make no statements or promises that might mislead either consumers or prospective sales people. 

This nutritional company has been a health and nutrition leader since 1956; It continues to champion solid, scientifically backed product choices rather than "risky" trends. 

Some examples of the care they take to insure its product is safe and the best available on the market are: 

  • Invested over $250 million in exhaustive product research and development, and clinical trials
  • Over 83,000 tests conducted annually to insure quality
  • Raw Material testing for over 300 chemical contaminants
  • 349 quality control tests on each lot of multivitamins

Their products are the result of a painstaking process of scientific review and assessment of third-party research and independent clinical studies by our expert Health Sciences Group. They also consult a Scientific Advisory Board, a team of nationally recognized scientists from some of America's leading academic and medical institutions. 

Each product must perform to a standard of excellence. Each product must deliver the correct dosage of key ingredients, based on clinical research. Each product must start with the finest raw materials and be formulated to deliver consistently. 

Finally, a Company that utilizes the best nature and science can provide. That means no shortcuts.

 They are more than willing to share their research and show they go well beyond what is required by the Federal Government. Ask other vitamin and wellness companies to do the same and see what kind of response you get. 

So why did I choose this Company?

I say because they are a company that leads. One that isn’t afraid to do things the right way. 

Try it for yourself; don’t just take my word for it. Do your research. You have nothing to lose but you have your health to gain.  Every product is 100% guaranteed.
