Welcome to our Shaklee
Product Newsletter for the month of February. I
hope you are continuing to do well and everything is
going as planned.
Soon summer will be here
again and so maybe we should talk about looking our best
this summer. Some would say; "Fat Chance".
You hear people say things
like: "I have been trying to lose weight forever and
nothing seems to work." Well, there is something that is
sweeping the country now and people are talking
about it everywhere.
It's the Shaklee plan
called "Cinch". http://www.cinchplan.com/fyi
That's what it is, a
Cinch to use, but I want to talk about what it is
Let's face it, diet plans
and pills have been around for a long time and will
continue to be because of the kind of food
available, junk food advertising, and the poor
choices people make. But what we must be careful about
is how unsafe and misleading they can be as
Many consumers are unaware
of the facts about diet supplements. In a recent survey
of 3,500 people, 60 percent believed that diet
supplements had to be proven to be safe before they
could be sold. And more than half believed that they had
to be approved by the food and drug administration
Diet pills are considered
nutritional supplements and so they are not required to
be proven safe and effective in order to be sold to the
consumer in stores. Because of this, many
marketers of popular diet pills are misleading
consumers with promises of dramatic weight
On Jan. 4 the FTC
announced it had charged marketers of CortiSlim,
CortiStress, One-A-Day WeightSmart, TrimSpa, and
Xenadrine EFX with making false or
For example, ads for
Xenadrine EFX said their pill was clinically
proven to cause rapid and substantial weigh loss.
However, according to the FTC, studies commissioned
by Xenadrine EFX's manufacturer failed to
demonstrate that claim and in fact, one study showed
that people lost even more weight with taking a placebo
than they did with Xenadrine EFX. A placebo by
the way, if you don't already know, is nothing more than
a sugar pill!
The FTC also said that the
claims made by the marketers of CortiStress,
that their product would spur repid weight loss and
reduce the risk of conditions such as cancer and
Alzheimer's disease, were also
question to anyone wanting to get into great shape would
Why take these risks if there is a much
Shaklee has always proven
their product claims over all of these years. In
fact, for the past 50 years they have been in
business, they have never been charged by
the FTC for anything! This is one of the reasons why
Shaklee is so different from the competition. Shaklee
conducts testing that is not required and goes over the
top to do so.
A good example of this was when we
made a decision to discontinue making Asian Ginseng
Complex. We became aware that Panax ginseng, imported
from China during the 1998 season, was contaminated by a
fungicide. This was an industry-wide problem.
Though the FDA determined that the
levels of the fungicide were not harmful and that the
fungicide-contaminated ginseng compounds could continue
to be sold in the United States, we decided to
discontinue our ginseng product until a pure source of
ginseng could be found.
We were the only
company to do so!
But that is only one of many
reasons our products are different. Another reason is
that our manufacturing process is then followed by a
comprehensive final product analysis designed to verify
that the active ingredients are actually present in the
proper concentrations in the final product before it is
ever sold to you.
As many as 256 separate test
are preformed during the process, 176 on the raw
materials alone! Every product is backed by our 100%, no
questions asked, money-back
Unlike many of the
nutritional products on the market today, we will not
even bring a product to the market unless there is
substantial proof of its health benefits. Each of our
products is formulated based upon third-party research
and independent clinical studies. There is
scientific substantiation behind each of our products.
It's a sad fact that the huge
demand for herbal products has spawned so many bogus
ingredients. However, you will not find these
ingredients in our products because they don't hold up
to scientific scrutiny.
For example, DHEA,
glycoproteins, shark cartilage, Garcinia cambogia, and
many other "trendy" products do not have enough
scientific support to qualify as one of our products. We
simply will not sacrifice our integrity for short-term
Every claim we make is backed
by 100% scientific proof. Rigorous analytical testing
ensures each of our products consistently delivers what
is on our label. We offer you safe, reliable guaranteed
performance and you are the final judge.
Recently the FDA is looking
into providing regulations on nutritional supplements to
help protect the consumer and we are leading the way.
Until then, it is very much a world of “Buyer Beware”.
So why take a chance with
your health when you can have the very best?
one place where second best is simply not good enough.
Try Shaklee Cinch today;
it will be the best investment you ever made!
