REAL Vitamin Water - Shaklee Style

This time of year there is so much flu, strep throat and just plain colds and coughs going around. You can't be on social media or talk to friends without someone (or lots of someones) being sick in some kind of way. 

So, if that is you, I want to tell you - you don't have to be 'sick' any longer. Your body just needs the right nutrients to be able to heal itself.

Today, I want to post a recipe for REAL Vitamin Water..... it works wonders and taste's great!

This is my favorite recipe to use for an all-natural solution for my family, especially the kids. It supports their immune system, but doesn’t disrupt their nervous system, which means, NO nasty side effects. It’s dye free, artificial sugar free and best of all, tastes great. Really easy to put in thermos to sip on during the school day too! Super Easy, Healthy, recipe to keep you and your family well!

This can be used as a preventative when everyone around you is sniffling or for comfort to kick that cold/flu away.

REAL Vitamin Water -Shaklee Style

Makes 1 serving for adults, 2 servings for kids
3 TBL of Performance (we like Lemon Lime)
10 Chewable Vitamin C
4 Defend and Resist
1 Vitamin D
2-3 Ice Cubes
8-12 ounces of filtered water

Blend it well and enjoy your cool, soothing vitamin water that works! Use 2x a day if you’re not feeling well and 1x a day as a preventative when your family is sick.

Notes: This can also be made as a Get Well Slushie, simply use 2-4oz water and 7-10 ice cubes (That's how I like it best!) Optional: add juice of 1 lime and stevia to sweeten.
To boost immunity even more, take 1 Optiflora probiotic capsule daily.

• Keep your medicine cabinet stocked for the next bunch of sniffles, cold or flu.

As a side note.... we love our glass straws from glass dharma. They make sipping the REAL Vitamin Water that much better!

Safer Than Bleach and Lysol......


The safest disinfectant on the market! Nonflammable, Biodegradable & Non-toxic. Cleans, Disinfects & Deodorizes. Kills up to 99% of bacteria.

Mix 3/8 teaspoon to 16 oz spray bottle.
Mix 1 tablespoon to 1 gallon of water.

Because it is so concentrated, a little goes a long way and saves your wallet!  (Once mixed, use in 30 days)

Basic-G has a 3 year shelf life. Its residual effectiveness lasts up to 3 days after application. Chlorine (bleach) used as a disinfectant is effective no more than 1 hour.

The many uses of Basic-G

In the Bathroom:
Toilets ~ Garbage Pails ~ Diaper Pails ~ Sinks and Faucets ~ Showers
Pet Areas
In the kitchen
Countertops ~ Cutting Boards ~ Faucet and Sink ~ Refrigerator Handles ~ Floors
After preparing eggs, chicken & meats to kill Salmonella

Makes the best weed killer, and it is safe.
1-gallon Water
1-tblspn of Shaklee Basic G
1/2-cup of white vinegar
For diapers and other problem jobs
Add 1 teaspoon per load to deodorize and disinfect. Helps eliminate diaper rash!
Safe to use as an air freshener.
Safe for stainless steel & aluminum.
It is safe to use on hard, non-porous surfaces.
Great for disinfecting throughout your house
EPA registered
One quart makes up to 64 gallons
Shaklee did not put it in the Get Clean line because the advertising of that line is all Non Toxic.
 “If it is non-toxic, why are there warnings on the bottle?”   According to EPA standards, bottles must be labeled according to what is IN the bottle.  Now, remember, more than 80,000 products are not registered with the EPA or labeled correctly.  This is a plus for Shaklee and their reputation for integrity in that it is registered and labeled correctly.  So when it comes to the concentrated form of BasicG, if what is IN the bottle were to be consumed, it is toxic by EPA standards.  However, it is not nearly as toxic as other cleaners.

In its properly diluted form Basic G is completely non-toxic and not harmful at all.
