Omega 3's

Pure Omega 3 Fish Oil - Shaklee OmegaGuard –
Ultra Pure Pharmaceutical Grade
Shaklee's OmegaGuard is made with a state-of-the-art, proprietary, triple molecular distillation process, that concentrates the natural beneficial omega-3 fatty acids while helping remove the harmful compounds.
Triple Distilled Means Superior Formulation
  • Helps remove impurities and contaminants such as lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, dioxins, and PCBs that are often found in fish and fish oils.
  • Prevents the formation of dangerous trans fats for a healthier fish oil
  • Minimizes odor and fishy aftertaste
  • Contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.

Protect your heart safely with OmegaGuard™, the world's finest, ultra-pure, pharmaceutical-grade fish oil. Shaklee OmegaGuard contains a full spectrum of seven naturally occurring omega-3 fatty acids EPA, DHA, ALA, and more to help you maintain a healthy heart, cardiovascular system, and to support healthy vision, brain and joint function. It also contains higher levels of EPA and DHA than leading brands.
Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid, and can't be manufactured by our own body. Most people do not get enough omega 3s, and those with high triglycerides, may need more omega-3 nutrients in their diet and supplements can be beneficial. Omega-3 fatty acids include fish oil and certain plant/nut oils. Fish oil contains both DHA and EPA. Walnuts, flaxseed, and olive oils contain ALA.
EPA benefits your heart and joints, while DHA is critical for brain development and function. There is evidence from multiple studies supporting intake of recommended amounts of DHA and EPA in the form of dietary fish or fish oil supplements lowers triglycerides, and slows the buildup of atherosclerotic plaques.
What are the benefits of taking an omega 3 fish oil supplement?  
*Lowers blood triglyceride levels
*Reduces the risk of heart attack
*Reduces the risk of strokes
*Lowers blood pressure
*Lowers blood pressure
*Slows the buildup of atherosclerotic plaques

Cindy Latham, Shaklee's Vice President of Marketing, in a facebook post on March 5, 2010, said "I can't end the week, without commenting about Omega3 in the news. There was a lawsuit filed against a number of brands (not Shaklee) that raised some concerns, brands that used cod liver oil. There are NO safety issues Shaklee's OmegaGuard. We use pharmaceutical grade fish oil, we use a molecular distillation process to remove contaminants like dioxings, mercury and PCB's (polychlorinated biphenyls).

Shaklee's fish oil comes from highly purified whole fish --not from the liver of cod or shark (which the brands in the lawsuit used) which tend to accumulate these harmful compounds. Shaklee helped create a monograph to establish the standard for quality and purity, including defining the limits for contaminants including dioxin, PCB's, lead, arsenic, mercury and cadmium.

God and Valentines

Don't Forget About God's Love on Valentines Day.....

~ God’s Valentine Gift ~
God’s Valentine gift of love to us
Was not a bunch of flowers;
It wasn’t candy, or a book
To while away the hours.

His gift was to become a man,
So He could freely give
His sacrificial love for us,
So you and I could live.

He gave us sweet salvation, and
Instruction, good and true--
To love our friends and enemies
And love our Savior, too.

So as we give our Valentines,
Let’s thank our Lord and King;
The reason we have love to give
Is that He gave everything.

Are All Vitamins the Same?

Aren’t all vitamins the same?   
Why can’t I just get the cheap ones? 

 Don’t they all do the same thing?
 These are all very good questions ..... keep reading for the answers!
There is such a huge difference between buying a synthetic vitamin and a whole-food vitamin. The biggest difference is the way you feel. There IS a reason that people say they don’t feel any different when they take vitamins. This is because usually the vitamin they are taking is synthetic and potentially toxic to the body. The live enzyme in the synthetic vitamin never existed, therefore your body does not benefit from the vitamin and you are throwing away your hard earned money!
The Three Types of Vitamins:   
                                                                                                                                                                                                                              1. Test Tube or Synthetic (**Usual drug store or discount store vitamins) –made in a test tube in a lab, to resemble the real thing. This is toxic to the body and does more harm than good.
**imagine a Plastic Lemon from the store with juice in it. This type is the Plastic lemon with NO juice. That is basically what you are eating if you take these.
No enzymes
Inorganic substances
Side effects
Can actually be more harmful to your health if taken!
2.  Crystalline or Extracted (**Usual health food store variety) –these start out natural, but are heated through the processing, so all live enzymes are killed. You end up with a partially live vitamin, if live at all. Most of these have harsh binders and fillers, plastic coatings, and some contain tar.
**this is the Plastic Lemon with juice. IF you can get past the plastic coating, there is a little bit of real stuff in there. However, the juice has been heated so it’s not really like drinking it fresh squeezed.
Weak enzymes
Uses chemical and heat extraction
Organic substances (low quality raw materials)
Harsh binder and fillers
3.  Natural / Unaltered (**Shaklee food supplements and other whole food supplements) –Cold pressed to extract the vitamins, all enzymes remain alive so you get something as close to nature as possible

**this is the REAL lemon… unaltered and fresh. What’s inside is fully alive and natural.
Strong enzymatic action
Low heat, low pressure process
Organic substances
Feeds and improves cell’s health
Contains essential unknown nutrients
**X brands need only 10% natural ingredients to legally be classified as “All-Natural.”  Shaklee food supplements are 100% natural!
For the reasons above, our family has chosen Shaklee supplements and truly feel the difference!  Click here to read our Story.

If you truly want to feel different - take a supplement that is going to feed and improve your cell’s health. I truly believe that you “get what you pay for.” I also believe that what you put into your body needs to be the highest quality that is available. So many times, we miss the mark of where to spend our money. We will pay $5.00 for a cup of Starbucks coffee, or $20 for fake flowers to decorate our house, but will complain about spending an extra $1.00 on healthy, fresh food.  It is the same for vitamins, take a whole food vitamin that will make you feel good and keep you healthy – not to mention has the research to back up every single ingredient and has a 100% satisfactory guarantee!

Natural Way To De-Worm Goats

Many people use Shaklee Classic Basic H (including us) as a natural way to de-worm their livestock - we currently use it for our cows, Nigerian dwarf dairy goats and LGD.

Here is what is recommended for worming - You can read a complete article here.
1. Measure out Classic Basic H for the animal you are trying help eliminate worms. For cows, use 1 cup per 100 gallons of water or 1/8 cup per 20 gallons of water. For smaller animals like goats and sheep the dosage needs to be smaller. Measure out 6cc. or use 2 drops per 10# of animal weight. Some people do this for 3-7 days, others do it as a one time only treatment.
2. Mix the Classic Basic H with water. For large animals the cleaner can be added to the water trough. For smaller animals, mix the 6 cc with 8 oz. water. Place the mixture in a turkey baster and give to the animal.
(We use 2 drops per 10# of animal weight.) For example: A 40 lb. goat would get 8 drops of Classic Basic H added to the drinking water once every 4 months.
Note: at first some of the animals don't want to drink the water, but that is the only water offered till gone - they catch on pretty fast! Right now, I worm my animals every 4 months (3 times a year) with Shaklee Classic Basic H. I'm sure there are a lot of variations on that.
Basic H is a green cleaner made by Shaklee, and has been on the market for over 40 years. There are over 1001 uses for Basic H (Find some of them here!)
According to Joel Salatin who wrote the book "Salad Bar Beef" Classic Basic H can be used to control worms in all livestock animals. You can purchase the book "Salad Bar Beef" by Joel Salatin from Amazon here! 

You can also find info for using Shaklee Basic H for Agriculture Use here.
The Classic Basic H is different than Basic H2 - Here is some info on that:
 Shaklee Basic H was the original formula, now known as Classic Basic H. Over the years, customers and Shaklee Distributors have found many different uses for Basic H that is not consistent with the labeling of the product. Shaklee Basic H was meant to be used as a non-toxic household cleaner. It was soon discovered that the original Basic H was purchased for many other uses! (Shaklee does not endorse these uses because testing was not done in regards to uses other than cleaning and household uses).
Shaklee learned that Classic Basic H was being purchased by farmers and ranchers as a great way to control horse flies, worm cattle, control crop pests and many other uses. Classic Basic H turned out to be a great all natural alternative to farmers. The home gardener started to realize that Basic H helped with greener grass, healthier plants, sunburn, mosquito control, ant killer, car wash and so much more! Again, the Shaklee Corporation does not endorse the product for such uses but customers will always tell you it is amazing.
Several years ago Shaklee wanted to get the "Green Seal" of approval for Shaklee Basic H and they had to reformulate it. This is when Shaklee Basic H2 was born. Shaklee Basic H2 is more concentrated, if that is even possible, and it is mainly used for cleaning purposes. Some people have used Basic H2 for a fly spray, mosquito spray and some of the other uses discovered for the Original Classic Basic H. If you are a farmer, rancher or use Basic H for purposes not listed on the label it is highly recommended that you use the Classic Basic H. Basic H and Basic H2 are very similar and work equally well for its labeled purposes.
As of now, Shaklee only produces the classic Basic H in a 5 or 30 gallon drum - you can see more at our website here!
Some people that still desire the original Classic Basic H will purchase a 5 Gallon supply and split it with other Basic H lovers to help reduce the cost.
