I have spent incredible amounts of time reading up on health, and a reoccurring theme I have found that I cannot ignore is the importance of our bodies getting the vitamins and minerals that we need. I am also struck with how God provided so many ways nutritionally that we can help our health, especially our immune system.
I have agonized over the decision of what supplements to take. Sounds dramatic, but really, it is true. I have looked into all types of brands. I have tried not to get too wrapped up in perfection, but I also want to be wise in what I buy and take. I want to have the best life and health that I can possible have, and making a decisions when it comes to supplements is a large part of living my best life and staying as healthy as possible.
I took Shaklee when I was in active treatment for cancer…so about 2 years. I loved it. LOVE, loved it! I have missed it dearly! I stopped taking it after radiation and started taking mish- mash of cheaper vitamins thinking it would help with our budget, but I was always questioning whether or not I am getting everything I need, and never really knew if the quality of the vitamins I was taking was ok or not.
I reassured myself that I have a very healthy diet, and that most of my nutritional needs are met with that. But, truth be told, our food is not what it used to be nutritionally, thanks to a depleted soil, and I still wanted the reassurance of a good multi-vitamin to know I am covering all bases. Not only did I want that, but also a good probiotic, a good omega 3 source & most importantly for me being a plant eater–vitamin B-12.
I started getting overwhelmed with all the different bottles of vitamins and supplements I was buying, and really started wondering if I am saving any money going a “cheaper” route, especially knowing most cheap vitamins are full of fillers.
I missed the confidence and ease I had in my supplements when I was taking Shaklee, and decided it was time to go back to them. It was worth the peace of mind, and it was a good time in my pursuit of health to do just that.
I cannot tell you the excitement I felt when I got my box of supplements in the mail. It is quite ridiculous really–to be this excited about vitamins…but I am!!
Here is why:
What is Vitalizer?
It is everything I need and was looking for in a handy-dandy little daily Vita-strip!
No more opening a bazillion bottles of vitamins. No more wondering if I am getting all I need. In my pursuit of a simple, healthy life, Vitalizer is the perfect product for me.
Is it worth it to me? Yes.
It contains over 80 nutrients–a multivitamin, calcium, ultra-pure fish oil, and probiotics–plus extra B vitamins, vitamin C, D, & E, and more.
Although a 30 day supply of Vitalizer strips is expensive, when you add up separate bottles of what is listed above, that would be at least 7-10 different bottles of supplements. The average price of a decent supplement is $10-$12 bucks, and supplements such as CO-Q10 can go as high as $25.00, so when I looked at it that way, I felt better about the price of Vitalizer, because it is anything but average!
Here is what caught my eye and made me say YES to Shaklee Vitalizer:
Healthy aging–with N-acetylcysteine, more vitamin B12 & Vitamins C & D
Heart health–with CoQ 10, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin E
Bone & joint health–high in calcium and vitamins D, C, and K
Immune health–high in vitamins C, D, and A plus zinc
Brain health and cognition–with omega-3 fatty acids, plus vitamins B6 and B12
Healthy vision–with lutein and vitamin A
Digestive health–with probiotics
Physical energy–with all eight essential B vitamins.
PLUS triple berry blend–77x more polyphenols, ounce for ounce, than juice
Changing Brands Can Change Your Life...
and I”m banking on that. I believe Shaklee, as they have been around for 56 years, have been thoroughly tested, and their product kept me strong during cancer treatment. My Oncologist was consistently impressed with how well I did through treatment and often asked what I was doing on my own to keep my health up.
“Shaklee Vitalizer is based on 12 clinical studies, as well as the first-ever study done on long-term Shaklee supplement users. Results from this groundbreaking study, published in Nutrition Journal, showed that people who too Shaklee supplements had markedly better health that non supplement users.”
Shaklee Micronutrient Advanced Release Technology–S.M.A.R.T.
Lastly, one of my most favorite things about Shaklee Vitalizer is how it delivers the Right Nutrients to the Right Place at the Right Time. This was a huge selling point for me, as I have read way too often about how vitamins are a waste of money if they don’t get to where they need to go in a timely manner, or if they are not absorbed when and where they need to be in the body. I will let the image speak for itself and show you what S.M.A.R.T. means, or if you want more of a visual click on the video.
