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.
A customer of mine once asked me if Shaklee carries a product called “Raspberry Ketone”, which is supposedly “flying off the shelves” in stores. We don’t and I’m not sure if Shaklee plans to ever carry this product but the question alone reminded me of one of the reasons why I LOVE THIS COMPANY and why I simply won’t buy supplements from the stores (even if Shaklee doesn’t carry something).
Remember years ago, when Bee Pollen was all over ads and the news. Back then I had customers and members ask me why Shaklee doesn’t carry it. Upon checking, I learned that before producing a bee pollen product, Shaklee, as always, did clinical research and studies on the benefits of bee pollen as a supplement, and discovered it to NOT be 100% safe for human consumption. And for this reason they’ve never carried the product and never will! I couldn’t be more proud to be part of a company that puts our health before profit….because as we all know….they could have made a fortune if they had added bee pollen to their line of products!
