Heart Health Month

Optimal nutrition can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease and many of us don’t eat the way we should on a daily basis. A holistic approach to reducing heart disease risk includes a low fat, low cholesterol, low sodium diet; lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains; weight control; exercise and a supplement program to make sure that we get the nutrients that we need to reduce risk factors associated with heart disease. That’s why the HEALTHY HEART PROGRAMS make good sense.

Healthy Heart Program:

Because stannols and sterols are naturally occurring phytonutrients that have been shown to lower cholesterol in over 80 clinical studies -
AND – Shaklee’s Cholesterol Reduction Complex is the only supplement that provides the NIH- recommended 2,000 mg of stannols and sterols.

80 bio-optimized nutrients clinically proven to create a foundation for a longer, healthier life. Vitalizer contains:

Vita Lea
Because most of us do not get all the nutrients we need from diet alone – AND- the American Medical association recommends that every adult take a multivitamin/multimineral supplement daily to prevent chronic diseases.

Sustained Release B – C Complex:
Vitamin C – Because Vitamin C works with vitamin E to reduce risk factors associated with heart disease – AND – many of us do not get enough vitamin C from our diet.
B Complex – Because adequate intake of B vitamins decreases blood levels of homocysteine, a possible risk factor for heart disease – AND – most of us don’t get all the B vitamins we need from our diet.

Carotenoids – Because Caroto-E-Omega contains all 6 of the essential carotenoids found in those fresh fruits and vegetable that we are not eating on a regular basis – AND – the carotenoids in Caroto-E-Omega have been shown to reduce risk factors associated with heart disease.
Vitamin E – Because Caroto-E-Omega contains all 8 naturally occurring forms of vitamin E in optimum balance. Oxidation of cholesterol is thought to make it much more likely to plug our arteries -AND- clinical studies have shown that supplementation with vitamin E helps prevent cholesterol oxidation.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids – Because Caroto-E-Omega contains all 7 naturally occurring omega-3 fatty acids in an ultra-high purity form. Omega-3 fatty acids decrease several risk factors associated with heart disease -AND- clinical studies show that omega-3 fatty acids reduce the risk of heart attack in high risk populations, but cold water fish, which are the best dietary sources of omega-3 fatty acids are often contaminated with heavy metals, dioxin and/or pesticides.

When harmful bacteria and yeast take up residence in our intestine, they metabolize the food that we eat into toxins that harm our body and weaken our immune system – AND – Optiflora pearls contain Acidophilus and Bifidus, essential friendly bacteria that crowd the harmful bacteria & yeast out of our intestines. Optiflora guarantees delivery of 500 million live beneficial microflora to the intestines, due to its unique triple encapsulation which protects these essential bacteria from the acidity of the stomach.

Shaklee 180 Smoothee Shakes

Because {Non GMO} soy protein has been shown to lower LDL cholesterol when substituted for high fat meats in the diet – AND – the American Heart
Association recommends soy protein as part of a heart-healthy diet.

Because clinical studies showing that omega-3 fatty acids reduce the risk of heart attack in high risk populations used higher levels than found in the Vitalizer Pack alone.

Because CoQHeart combines the antioxidant properties of coenzyme Q10 and resveratrol, 2 compounds that are vital for heart health – AND –the body’s needs for coenzyme Q10 are increased by the statin class of cholesterol lowering drugs.

Because high fiber diets have been shown to lower cholesterol and other risk factors for heart disease – AND – each Fiber Advantage bar provides 8 grams of dietary fiber per serving.

Because scientific research has finally discovered why we age -AND- Shaklee has utilized the latest research advances to produce an exclusive polyphenol blend that positively impacts the four key mechanisms of cellular aging. Laboratory studies have shown that the polyphenols in Vivix have the potential to increase your lifespan and your health span (your quality of life as you age), plus they significantly reduce risk factors associated with heart disease.

If your triglycerides are elevated, also consider Glucose Regulation Complex – Because insulin resistance causes an increase in triglycerides and a decrease in HDl, which increases the risk of heart attack and stroke – AND – Glucose Regulation Complex is designed to reduce insulin resistance. You should consider trying Glucose Regulation Complex if you have elevated triglyceride levels, low HDL levels, and/or high blood pressure.

[Note: Recent reports have suggested that B vitamins and antioxidants, when taken individually for relatively short periods of time, may not significantly reduce the risk of heart disease for everyone. However, B vitamins and antioxidants do reduce risk factors associated with the development of heart disease. Thus, they should be considered as part of a holistic approach to reducing heart disease risk, and not as magic bullets that, when taken individually, can prevent heart disease.]

The information in this post is not meant to be used in the diagnosis or treatment of disease. The recommendations are geared towards the prevention of disease. Furthermore, the descriptions of individual products in this post are not meant to indicate that they can significantly reduce the risk of disease by themselves. Rather the descriptions are meant to indicate the role that they may play as part of a holistic approach to optimal health.

DO YOU NEED THE HEALTHY HEART PROGRAM? Here are some questions to ask yourself:

1. Do you often use convenience foods or eat at fast food restaurants because of cost, convenience, or lack of time?
2. Do you often use “artificial” or “imitation” food products because they are low in cholesterol or fat?
…If your answer to either of these questions was YES, you would likely benefit from the nutrition insurance of Shaklee’s Vitalizer.
3. Are you able to consistently maintain adequate protein intake AND keep your cholesterol consumption below 400 mg per day?
…if not, you may wish to consider Shaklee’s 180 Smoothee Mix in place of some of the animal protein in your diet.
4. Are you consuming 3-5 servings of fresh vegetables and 6-11 servings of whole grains each day?
…If not, you may wish to consider the added insurance of the extra carotenoids & B vitamins you find in Vitalizer.
5. Do you eat cold-pressed vegetable oils, raw seeds and nuts, and whole grain
products on a daily basis?
…If not, you’re probably not getting the magnesium and vitamin E you need. Vitalizer is the solution.
6. Do you eat one serving of “cold water” fish (mackerel, cod, salmon,
sardines, or anchovies) at least every other day?
…If not, then the Caroto-E-Omega in Shaklee’s Vitalizer plus OmegaGuard can provide the heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids you’re lacking in your diet
7. Do you know whether the cold water fish that you are eating are free of heavy metals, pesticides & PCBs?
…If not, then Shaklee’s Caroto-E-Omega and OmegaGuard can be a safer alternative for providing the heart- healthy omega-3 fatty acids you’re lacking in your diet
