Ultra-pure OmegaGuard, the world’s finest fish oil that delivers a full spectrum of seven
omega-3s including EPA, DHA, ALA, and more.

  • Research shows that high levels of EPAand DHA omega-3 fatty acids may:
    • Help reduce the risk of heart disease†
    • Help retain healthy triglyceride levels
    • Help retain normal blood pressure
    • Support brain, visual, and joint function
  • Over 4,500 research studies on omega-3 fatty acids’ effects on overall health have been conducted in the last 25 years.
  • The average American intake of EPA and DHA is only 0.1 to 0.2 g/day, even though the American Heart Association recommends at least two fish meals per week to provide an intake of about 0.3 to 0.5 g/day of EPA and DHA.
  • Most American diets provide more than ten times as much omega-6 than omega-3 fatty acids,even though there is general scientific agreement that individuals should consume more omega-3 and less omega-6 fatty acids to promote good health.

Research shows that high levels of omega-3 fatty acids promote cardiovascular health and help retain normal blood pressure and triglyceride levels.

Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA fatty acids may reduce the risk of heart disease.

Shaklee 180 | Tasha Starr Success Weight Loss Story

Shaklee 180 StoryAt 5’4″ and 220 pounds, mother of two Tasha Starr was unhealthy and unhappy. But an inspiring quote gave her the spark she needed to begin her Shaklee 180 journey and now 95 pounds lighter*, she’s growing her Shaklee business by inspiring others to choose health!

‘This is not about getting beautiful, you already are. This is about getting healthy.’

At 5’4″ and 220 pounds, I knew I wasn’t healthy.

After having two kids 16 months apart, I fell into a mindset that gave me permission to stop caring about myself. I believed the lies that it didn’t matter what I ate or how I looked because a woman’s body changes after delivering eights pounds of screaming bliss into the world…twice. I knew my husband loved me, no matter how I looked, and I started to believe that was good enough. I lived to eat and consequently felt like crap — no energy, no self-confidence and even less motivation. I’d stay in my pajamas all day. I struggled with envy and jealousy towards thinner moms. It was not a healthy state of being, physically or emotionally.

Shaklee 180 StoryWhen I read that quote above, something in me just said “GO FOR IT!” I didn’t second-guess the purchase. I knew I had to do Shaklee 180, and I am so glad I did. In 10 months of sticking to the program, I lost 80 pounds.* After a bit of a plateau, I’m happy to report I’ve continued my journey and have now lost a total of 95 pounds and nine inches around my waist!* Above all, I know I am healthy! Now I eat to live and as a result I feel alive — energetic, inspired and motivated to help others.

My Shaklee 180 story started with me alone and “ends” though it will never be over – with a healthier husband, children, friends, family and way beyond. As I share my story with others and grow my Shaklee business, I know how many lives we can touch simply by working hard, choosing Shaklee 180, and having a little determination!

*Results not typical. In a preliminary study of the Cinch Inch Loss Plan, participants on average lost 15.4 pounds and 6.6 inches over 12 weeks. Tasha is a Shaklee Distributor.

The Science behind Shaklee 180

Why does Shaklee 180 Work?

The Shakee 180 Turnaround Kit contains clinically tested weight-loss products and Shaklee 180 is a program designed to burn fat, not muscle using Leucine.

What’s Leucine?

Leucine is an essential amino acid that helps with protein synthesis. In other words, it’s a one of 9 building blocks of protein that can only be obtained from the diet. It’s present in protein-rich foods including milk and other dairy products, tofu and other soy foods as well as fish, chicken and lean meat.

What’s the Big Deal?

Once absorbed, leucine goes directly to muscle tissue, where it activates a chain of events that ultimately creates lean muscle. Think of it as cash to build a home-the home being muscle. When you have enough cash, you can pay the contractor to buy the equipment they need to build your home. Similarly, when you have enough leucine, your body can start making muscle protein. And the more leucine you have, the more muscle you can build.

What Does Leucine and Muscle Have to Do With Losing Weight?

On most weight loss diets, you end up losing muscle in addition to fat. That’s because when you take in fewer calories than your body needs, your body has less energy to fuel basic biological functions. To make up for that, your body breaks down muscle proteins for energy. This is bad because it’s your muscles that help burn calories. Here’s where leucine does its magic while you lose weight; by stimulating protein synthesis it helps your body preserve muscle mass while you lose the right kind of weight-from fat, that is. In turn, your metabolism stays up, which is the key to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight for the long haul.

Shaklee 180 Smoothie | Healthy and Quick Breakfast or Lunch

Shaklee 180 Meal Replacement Info

Did You Know?

Drinking a Shaklee 180 Smoothee as a meal gives you all the nutrition you need in a healthy meal for under $3 per meal. Now lets say you prepared 5 oz. chicken, 10 oz. tuna, 4 eggs, 1 cup broccoli, 1 cup cauliflower, 1 cup pineapple and 2 cups of milk. Yes, that’s what you would get in a Shaklee 180 smoothie, but you would pay around $21 at a grocery store for all that and would spend a lot of time preparing it too…and we’re not even talking organic and healthy cooking tips, we’re just talking ingredients and time.

Now if you could prepare a delicious yummy Smoothie that had everything in it to live a healthy lifestyle and it just took a couple minutes to prepare…do you think you could skip a breakfast and/or lunch everyday and drink a healthy meal replacement with a Shaklee 180 Shake instead?

Shaklee 180 Smoothies are not just for people who want to lose weight either. Yes, they are a great option for people who want to lose weight, because you get a complete healthy meal with 24 grams of hunger fighting protein, 6 grams of fiber, powered by Leucine…which helps your body burn fat and keep muscle, plus 23 vitamins and minerals, Non-GMO soy protein, Low glycemic. (GI Value: 31), no artificial flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives added, gluten free, lactose free and only has 260 calories when prepared as directed.

But remember…Shaklee 180 is not just for people who want to lose weight. Shaklee 180 Smoothies are also great for people who want to maintain a healthy weight, have a lean muscular body, a healthy lifestyle or are just looking to eat and enjoy a healthy quick meal…and believe it or not, some people take Shaklee 180 to gain weight…yes, adding a shake along with your meals will help people get some extra healthy calories as well. It sure beats grabbing breakfast or lunch in a drive-thru at a fast food restaurant and you definitely will save money and feel much healthier…remember, healthy = happy : )

Question: How much do you pay for a healthy breakfast or lunch everyday?? Well if you answered over $3…then Shaklee 180 will save you money and give you all the health benefits that comes with a complete healthy breakfast or lunch. Great for people on the go too who don’t have time to cook healthy meals for breakfast and lunch! My high school son and college bound daughter are not over-weight, but they enjoy Shaklee 180 smoothies because they can mix one up in a couple minutes and out the door they go…and I can feel better knowing that they left with a complete, healthy meal in their belly that only cost me under $3 per smoothie! And their dad takes his Shaklee 180 Smoothie in the morning and a Shaklee 180 Meal Bar for lunch and has a Shaklee 180 Snack Bar when he gets a break…and he feels great and still has lots of energy when he gets home!

And coumarins which help prevent free radicals from damaging cells and One of active compounds in celery is the phytochemical coumarin, which has been proven effective in cancer prevention and capable of enhancing the activity of certain white blood cells that help fight cancer. The phytochemical coumarins prevent the formation and development of the Colon and Stomach Cancers.
  2. Pneumonia – Celery is a well known vegetable for stimulating the immune system to help fight disease. Celery is packed with antioxidants and compounds that fight bacteria, viruses and inflammation.
  3. Hay Fever: Celery comes on top of the list for foods that alleviate allergy symptoms. Also on that list are carrots, ginger, peppermint, parsley, turmeric, chamomile and cabbage.
  4. Lower blood pressure: Drinking celery juice every day for a week significantly helps lower blood pressure. A compound called phtalides help relax the muscle around arteries, dilating the vessels and allowing blood to flow normally. To be effective, drink the juice for one week, stop for three weeks, and start over.

All these compounds are very good at alliviating all menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes, and contribute to preventing heart disease and osteoporosis but without the side-effects of HRT treatment.
  11. Memory Loss: Celery contains a compound called luteolin, which has shown promise for lowering levels of plaque-forming proteins in the brain.This, in turn, can counteract risk factors for Alzheimer’s, including atherosclerosis, inflammation and oxidative damage.Another source of luteolin is flaxseed.
  12. Urinary Stones, breaking of: The diuretic effect of celery juice also aids the breaking and elimination of urinary and gall bladder stones. and With loads of analgesic, anti-inflammatory and diuretic compounds, as well as some calcium blockers, celery seed extracts seem appropriate for treating Bladder ?nfections.

Out of all the raw food drinks, the benefits of celery juice may be the best. In addition to its nutritive properties, it’s a lovely way to beat the heat!

Before making celery juice or any vegetable juic4, first wash the vegetable thoroughly and keep the leaves on the celery. Then, you chop the celery into smaller strips for easy juicing.

How to Get the Monsters out of your Child’s Bedroom

There’s a Monster in my Room!

Monsters in My RoomAt one time or another, every child imagines ghosts, monsters, alligators or some other such scary things under the bed or in the closet. This is usually a ploy for attention, unless they were allowed to watch some scary movie. (Anything with blood, screaming people or creepy sounds is usually scary enough for kids to always remember, while they’re lying on their beds alone in the dark.) So make sure the t.v./movie rating is age appropriate for them before they watch. This is a tremendous help in keeping their minds free of scary thoughts or things which they’re too young to understand. So if trying really hard to explain to them, that what they watched was make believe or if a goodnight kiss and soothing words don’t work, try these tips:

  1. Comfort your child with encouraging words.
  2. Obtain a general description of the monster. Ask your child why he/she thinks there is a monster in the room. What is the monster doing? What does this monster look like? Is it a boy monster or a girl monster? This will help ease the fear as your child is describing it as a story.
  3. Believe what your child tells you. Of course, there’s no monster in the room, but its presence is very real to your child.
  4. Take your child out of the room with you; into the kitchen is probably best. The kitchen is the most comforting room in your home.(Taking your child into bed with you is not a good solution. This can get to be a habit hard to break.)
  5. Prepare a small snack for your child (such as an orange or banana). Instruct your child to enjoy the snack while you go into the bedroom and eliminate the “monster”.
  6. Take down the “Monster Spray” and explain that your mother/father always kept a bottle or can of “Monster Spray” in the house when you were little and had monsters in your room, too. Let your child know that “Monster Spray” always works.
  7. Go into the “scary place” and squirt “Monster Spray” under the bed, in the floor area of the closet, and around the windows. The room will have a fresh, comforting fragrance. (And monsters hate it!)
  8. Bring your child back into the room where you can perform a final inspection together. Check all areas where monsters had been hiding.
  9. Encourage your child back into bed and remain with him/her for a few minutes. Maybe tell a quick story or sing the child’s favorite song. If necessary, briefly lie down with your child until he/she is secure that all monsters, alligators and other scary things have vanished. (Or until he/she nods off to sleep.)
  10. If you are a busy Mom/Dad with other children or are unable to do the story, song, etc. Try putting on your child’s favorite cartoon movie (as long as it’s not a scary one, and it’s age appropriate.) A happy cartoon will give them happy thoughts,(thus erasing the scary ones) helping them to relax and fall asleep. let them watch till they fall asleep

TIPS

  • Always have a can or a squirt bottle of “Monster Spray” on hand for surprise visits.
  • Tell anyone who might babysit where the hiding place of “Monster Spray” is.
  • Also explain to them, what your child is allowed to watch.
  • An alternative might also be to use a vacuum cleaner to “suck up” all the monsters. Then dispose of the bag in the trash so the monsters are gone for good.
  • Some examples of happy cartoons include: SpongeBob SquarePants, Ed Edd n Eddy, Looney Tunes, and Phineas and Ferb.

WARNINGS

  • Your child may want to accompany you as you perform this brave act of courage. That’s OK. To your frightened child, seeing is believing. As you apply “Monster Spray”, continue to ask your little one if you are getting all the proper places.
  • Keep your supply of “Monster Spray” in a safe place where inquisitive little fingers will not have access.
  • Make sure the cartoons are not the (scary, mystery solving, zombies chasing type.) More like “The Happy Little Elf” type.
  • Some “feel-good” cartoons have Halloween specials and scarier episodes, which may have caused the idea of monsters under the bed in the first place. So get DVDs and watch the episodes first to see if they are suitable.

THINGS YOU WILL NEED

  • There is now an iPhone app called Monster Meter that can prove to your child that there are no monsters in the room.
  • An inexpensive spray can of air freshener does a very good job of eliminating monsters, ghosts and other scary things. Select a fragrance that is uncommon to your household. (If you frequently use a scented spray to refresh your living areas, your child will catch on very quickly if he/she recognizes the fragrance.) Conceal the can with a sheet of colorful construction paper bearing the name of the product “MONSTER SPRAY”. Or,
  • Mix up your own recipe using nothing more than plain water and enough vanilla (or a few drops of any essential oil that has a soft, comforting scent). Mix the recipe and pour it into a household spray bottle with a fine mist squirt nozzle. Apply your own label “MONSTER SPRAY”, and store it out of the reach of children.
  • A DVD/VHS of nice and happy age appropriate cartoons.
