Should You Supplement Your Diet?

//Should You Supplement Your Diet?

We all know there are certain things we need to do to be healthy—exercise, eat right, get 7+ hours of sleep each night, and take supplements (to make up to what our diet is NOT giving us!).

Supplementing is an important thing in the day we live in where we rely on fast food restaurants to make our family dinner every night, where the average American consumes 156 lbs. of sugar per year, and where processed food with little or no nutrients fill our pantries.  No wonder our country has come in third to last in health in the world. We are the third sickest country in the world!!  So I would say supplementing our diet is definitely a necessity!

 With so many nutritional companies out there, how do you know which one is the best?  How do you know which products you can trust to put into your body? I don’t know about you, but our family is very cautious about what we allow to go “down the hatch.”  We have always been big into being able to see the research that proves a product will do what it says it will do.  We are also big on longevity.  How long has a company been around?  How long have they been testing that product before throwing it out to consumers?  Is a product synthetic or natural (b/c we all know that synthetic products do more harm than good in your body)?  These are all questions we should ask as we are searching for supplements to aid in maintaining optimal health for our family. 

The answer to these questions was found for us in a company called Shaklee.  While there are many other reputable companies out there, Shaklee has been proven to be a step above in research and quality.  And, as they say, the “proof is in the pudding.”  Shaklee has been around for 53 years. They are the number one nutritional company in the U.S. and have lead the way in natural nutrition since the 50’s.

Here is only a small example of “the proof.” Our family’s quality of life has been bettered by taking these products.  Nathan’s brother had cancer in his eyes (38 tumors) several years ago.  His tumors were inoperable and doctors could not give him radiation or chemo or he could go blind.  Their only option was to find the best nutritional company out there and pray it worked.  This is when my husband’s brother Andrew, along with the entire Oates family, got on Shaklee.  He also went to Mexico once a year for cancer fighting nutrients. Within 1 ½ years, his cancer was completely gone…and it is to this day, 10 years later.  Nathan’s family has other amazing stories like a severe case of Mononucleosis in Nathan’s twin brother being healed in two weeks and his dad’s migranes disappeared.

My story is that in high school I had anorexia and destroyed my body on the inside. My dream of playing Division I basketball or soccer was slipping away before my eyes. I made a turn-around and regained lost muscle over my senior year.  I went on to play Division I soccer at Liberty University.  Although I was eating properly again, my body had not recovered from the years of damage I had done to it. I would consistently have intense abdominal pain, completely debilitating me from playing or even moving at times.  I would also frequently pass out after really hard runs with the team. Then I was introduced to Shaklee by my future husband.  Within three months on the product it seemed that 4 years worth of damaged had been washed away…for good. I’ve never had another problem since.

Once your life has been changed by something, you want other people to know about it. So that’s what we do…we take great products and then share them with other people in hopes that their lives will be changed too.  But don’t just take our word for it.  Keep reading and see for yourself why Shaklee is head and shoulders above the rest!
