An independent nutritional supplement study conducted by the School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley - by Dr. Gladys Block a respected epidemiologist.
The basis for the study was the "National Health and Nutrition Examination Study" - UC Berkeley
It incorporated, independently, the results from 1000 people that have been users of Shaklee supplements for more than 20 years. (The actual range was from 20 to 42 years of usage; from ages 43 to 86 years old.)
People in the Shaklee study group
The typical American between age 50 - 65 is on an average of 7.6 prescription drugs!! If they are over 65 the average increases to 19 prescription drugs!!
The typical Shaklee person over 65 is on average of 0.6 (point 6) prescription drugs - Less than 1!!!!
85% of Shaklee people feel 'good' about their health.
45% of typical Americans feel 'good' about their health.
In other words, Shaklee users are in dramatically better health than the other two groups and those who use the typical multivitamin supplements found in the marketplace would be better off doing nothing!
When a company like Shaklee, or Pfizer, for that matter, wants to validate a product, they engage an organization competent to do so. While they pay for the study, the organization doing the study has complete control over the entire process, including publishing the results, whether they are helpful or harmful to the companies goals or bottom line.
To engage a world-class institution like UC Berkeley School of Public Health, and then allow them to basically validate or invalidate the impact of your product by doing this nutritional supplement study takes guts and supreme confidence.
Shaklee, fortunately, has both.
