There are thousands of brands of supplements and most people assume if it’s on a shelf, it MUST work! Don’t feel bad if you’re one of those people, I WAS too, 22 years ago, but I’d like to share a story that demonstrates how easily it is to buy the wrong product for the desired results!
Many kids suffer from growing pains at different times of their development, especially during those growth spurts when they start eating you out of house and home!! Although growing pains are looked at by most people as “normal”….they sure aren’t necessary! When my family and I started taking Shaklee’s nutritional supplements 22 years ago, my kids were about 3 & 7. Years later when they were almost grown, I got into a conversation with a friend who happen to mention how terribly her kids suffered from growing pains or as some people know them, leg pains or muscle cramps, off and on during their childhood. I started asking around and discovered that this is a very common occurrence with kids, and it was then that I realized my kids hadn’t EVER experienced growing pains!
Years ago I learned magnesium helps open the lungs/airways which in turn can help relieve the breathing problems for asthmatics. About that time, a co-worker of mine mentioned her son, age 10, suffered from asthma symptoms, always needing to use his inhaler upon waking every day and then also numerous times during the day. I shared with her what I had learned about magnesium and she decided to start giving her son Shaklee’s Calcium Magnesium product to see if it could offer any help at all.
Being environmentally conscious and loving the idea of saving money at the same time, is just one of the many things that attracted me to Shaklee and their amazing health and wellness products!! Since starting on their green cleaners, anti-aging skin care products, nutritional supplements and weight management products over 22 years ago, I have discovered unexpected side-BENEFITS to many of their products, and additional ways of using them other than the more traditional ways!
Having been with Shaklee for over 22 years, not only did I experience the task of teaching my own kids how to swallow a vitamin (once they’re past using our chewable multi-vitamin, Incredivites), but I’ve helped other people as well! It’s amazing how many adults have trouble swallowing a pill, as well! This information should help both kids and adults to swallow a pill! If you think about it, a piece of chewed up meat is much bigger going down, than a pill! 😉
Does this sound and look like you or someone you know? Do you feel sleepy and lack energy during the day, and once you go to bed you can’t seem to sleep, or you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t fall BACK asleep? Or you just can’t turn your brain off or you simply can’t relax enough to fall asleep?
Did you know that the crucial years for people to have a sufficient calcium intake to increase their bone density is from the age of about 9 to 13?! How strong and dense you get your bones during these early years has a huge impact on how dense they will still be when you get into your 60’s and 70’s! But yet so many people, don’t even start worrying about that until they’re in their 40’s. Not that it’s ever too late to start, but why not already be in much better shape when you start taking additional measures to keep/or get your bones stronger.
Do YOU or someone you know have achy joints? I knew how much I, personally, love Shaklee’s Joint Health Complex, because it got rid of the arthritis in my hip, but it is SO MUCH more rewarding to watch it help other people! A couple years ago, I met a gentleman, an HVAC guy, with extreme knee pain, due to the strain on his knees because of his job, and his son, who had back pain, decided to give our Joint Health Complex a try!
Shortly after my second child was born, I noticed that if I sat for any long period of time and then got up to walk, my right hip just didn’t want to cooperate right away. It felt tender for about the first 6 or 7 steps, causing me to almost walk with a limp until it decided to function properly. And I was only 30 years old! I thought to myself…..”What is up with my hip?!!” When I described it to my mother-in-law about a year later, she said it sounded like arthritis. I researched it and discovered this can happen to some women as a result of all the nutrients a baby robs from you during pregnancy!
It really is funny how some supplement companies are so quick to “jump on the bandwagon” to sell whatever will sell, when it comes to new products! I mean….really…..as soon as a product becomes a hot seller….everyone and their grandma produces their version of it and throws it on a shelf for sale…..often before checking it’s safety and/or effects on our bodies.
