Many of you are fairly new and have not seen the "Health Professionals Speak" brochure I did three years ago.
I thought some of you may find it helpful.
This is a .PDF file for Acrobat Reader, and it is intended to be printed 2-sided and folded as a brochure.
HEALTH PROFESSIONALS SPEAK. . . ABOUT “WHY SHAKLEE?”
DR. NEIL PADGETT, M.D.
“The reason that I have recommended only Shaklee to my patients
is that I have clinical, peer-reviewed data included in the catalog that
I can refer to. You have to have good clinical studies, good
double-blind peer-reviewed studies in order to evaluate a product.
As a medical professional, that’s the only thing that I’ll listen to.
Except for Shaklee, I’m not aware of anyone who’s done in-depth
studies. It’s the only company I’ve seen do it and that’s why it’s the
only company I can professionally recommend.”
DR. STEVE CHANEY, PH.D.
Professor of Nutrition, Biochemistry & Biophysiology

“One of the biggest mistakes people make is taking inexpensive
vitamins. Mail order vitamins offering fantastic “deals” are worth
just about what you pay for them. NEVER buy these vitamins or
supermarket/pharmacy brands without checking them out first.
Cut-rate products often contain additives, food allergens, sugar,
artificial food coloring and flavoring. Many are coated with shellac
or contain potentially hazardous chemicals like chlorine. Shaklee
performs up to 176 separate tests for purity, freshness, potency, and
safety on the raw ingredients for a single product. Products undergo
as many as 262 separate quality assurance tests throughout the
manufacturing process as well. In addition, all product label claims
have documented substantiation.”

“As a physician and pediatrician, I demand scientific validation of
the products I use in my practice. Smart supplementation today
means taking the right amounts with the right formulation, and
Shaklee has made it so easy for us to do that now. For over 19 years,
Shaklee has been a blessing for me, my family, and my patients who
have all benefitted from scientifically proven products for quality
health and healthy living. Our food today is so deficient in nutrients
because of what we have done to it. It is no longer the same food
that nature offered to us. For my fellow physicians who are looking
into incorporating nutrition in their practice, I encourage you to
consider using Shaklee's quality health products that you can trust
and recommend with full confidence."
DR. MYRON WINICK, M.D.

“Shaklee Products are very well tested both from a standpoint of
efficacy and safety. I consider Shaklee’s study of bone loss and their
[Vita-Lea] product’s relationship to bone loss not only important
from a standpoint of their product, but important from a standpoint
of the scientific community’s understanding of bone loss. . . . I think
it’s very impressive that the Shaklee scientists are willing not
necessarily to go with the flow, but rather to go with the science.”
DR. ANNETTE DICKINSON, PH.D.
Council for Responsible Nutrition
“You need to select a manufacturer that you can trust.
Unfortunately, there are some unscrupulous entrepreneurs out there
who will try anything and who are marketing street drug knock-offs
or recreational drugs under the name of dietary supplements. One
of our biggest problems today is that there are some small
manufacturers on the fringes of the industry who make products that
don’t meet necessary standards and gives a black eye to the whole
industry. Quality companies, companies like Shaklee Corporation,
are making a stand for quality products and for truthful information
and we believe that is very important.”
DR. R. WILLIAM SOLLER, PH.D.
Consumer Health Care Products Association
“Shaklee is a very important force at the forefront in terms of helping
to cultivate the field of self-care.

materials to major manufacturers world-wide]
“Shaklee has some rigorous standards that they actually initiated in
the industry. . . . Shaklee is definitely our pickiest and most strict
customer. They are very demanding, and they have specifications
beyond and above the specifications set by our other customers. I
think for a lot of customers, price is an issue when they are choosing
botanicals, but I wish they had the awareness about the quality of the
botanicals and the quality of the brand before they make their
decisions. I tell my friends, that if they want to buy quality, they have
to buy Shaklee.”
DR. CHRISTOPHER SCOTT, M.D.
"Supplements are absolutely crucial due to the quality of our soil and
food today. There are a lot of different supplements available on the
market, but labels do not accurately reflect contents. Over the past
ten years, I have been using Shaklee supplements for personal use,
as well as confidently recommending them to my patients."
DR. KATHY WICKENS, D.C.
"Patients get results with Shaklee! There is a definite difference in
the holding patterns for chiropractic adjustments for patients taking
Registered Nutritional Consultant
"I have been in practice for over 26 years and have used many brands
of supplements, including professional brands. About 7 years ago, I
was given information about the Shaklee Corporation. I was
impressed when I read that over 80 research studies and articles
about Shaklee products were published in prestigious nutritional and
medical journals. Wanting the best for my clients, I started
recommending Shaklee supplements. I was amazed at the results.
My clients experienced a level of wellness far exceeding anything I
had experienced in the previous 19 years."
DR. RICK MEDORA, D.C.
"The most trusted name in clinical science is Shaklee."
“Why do I take Shaklee vitamins when I can get others as samples for
free? From a pharmacist's view, you have to look at the clinical
research that is done by Shaklee.
“Mrs. Lindley and I are writing a book on prenatal nutrition -- not
quite complete -- and we requested clinical studies from the makers
of prenatal vitamins and no major company, except Shaklee, could
provide us with any studies!
“Also, as you know, the Shaklee vitamins are natural as opposed to
the synthetic prenatal vitamins available in drug stores. The makers
of those prenatal vitamins stress the amount of folic acid in them,
which is 1 mg. Because they have 1 mg of folic acid, they have to be
on prescription because folic acid can mask pernicious anemia. But
if you look at the prenatal vitamins, they have very few of the other
vitamins and most leave out biotin completely.
“It is funny that you ask me this question because a few weeks ago I
had a nurse call in for some prenatal vitamins, and I asked her what
was the best prenatal vitamin. She said, ‘I don’t know.’ So I asked
her how did they determine what brand of vitamin to give to the
patients. She said, ‘Whatever they can tolerate.’
“There are so many reasons why I take Shaklee over the vitamins I
could get from pharmaceutical companies. I don' t have time to
explain all, but the main reason is because the Shaklee vitamins
produce results! “
DR. CHRISTIANE NORTHRUP, M.D.
author of Health Wisdom for Women
. . . states that Shaklee's Vita-Lea is the best pre-natal vitamin she
has found. She never has problems with her patients becoming
anemic like many of her colleagues do. The cost of Vita-Lea (1 with
breakfast and 1 with the evening meal) is 28 cents, a small price to
pay for so much nutritional insurance. “It is so important for adults
and children to take a Vita-Lea (multi) tablet twice a day in order to
fill in the gaps in the diet and to give your body everything it needs
for healing and repair (which takes place while you sleep). People
who think they eat ‘very well’ are surprised to find out that minerals
and trace minerals are very low in supermarket foods, due to early
harvesting, transporting, and storage. Of all the vitamins on the
market, Shaklee supplements are different. Vita-Lea is made
primarily from organically-grown vegetable sources, cold-processed
to preserve enzymes, and contains exactly what the label states. Not
only that, all Shaklee supplements are clinically tested to make sure
that what is on the label is actually absorbed.”
