Please forward this to everyone you care about… CNN and the other major news outlets will be releasing this story in the coming days and weeks. This new study is going to change the way we all think of vitamins and supplements – and the companies that manufacture and market them.
Peer Review of a recent clinical study conducted by the University of California Berkeley has been completed. This study has been dubbed the “Landmark Study” and will be the groundbreaking baseline for future clinical studies.
Shaklee Corporation based in Pleasonton, CA came out on top of it’s game as the ONLY company that has proof their vitamins and supplements work and have an impact on disease states.
The table below summarizes some of the key Landmark Study findings. Read on to access the PDF link at the end of this article for the full report.
The numbers are fascinating. You’ll see that taking no multi-vitamin may be safer than taking other company brands. Shaklee Corporation came out of the study with bragging rights that it’s users had markedly lower incidence of coronary heart disease, angina, congestive heart failure, diabetes, stroke and emphysema not to mention lower homocysteine, LDL,(bad cholesterol), Triglycerides and higher HDL (good cholesterol).
Landmark Study Key Findings
50th Anniversary Landmark Study – Do vitamins and supplements really work? Read for yourself:
The groundbreaking study of long-term dietary supplement users showed that people who took Shaklee supplements had markedly better health than both multivitamin and non-supplement users alike. The attached PDF is long, but could make a huge difference in your health! Remember these are powerful food sources, never take them on an empty stomach!
Nutrition Journal 2007, 6:30doi:10.1186/1475-2891-6-30
Usage patterns, health, and nutritional status of long-term multiple dietary supplement users: a cross-sectional study:
Abstract (provisional) Published October 24, 2007
Dietary supplement use in the United States is prevalent and represents an important source of nutrition. However, little is known about individuals who routinely consume multiple dietary supplements. This study describes the dietary supplement usage patterns, health, and nutritional status of long-term multiple dietary supplement users, and where possible makes comparisons to non-users and multivitamin/mineral supplement users.
Using a cross-sectional study design, information was obtained by online questionnaires and physical examination (fasting blood, blood pressure, body weight) from a convenience sample of long-term users of multiple dietary supplements manufactured by Shaklee Corporation (Multiple Supp users, n=278). Data for non-users (No Supp users, n=602) and multivitamin/mineral supplement users (Single Supp users, n=176) were obtained from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2001-2002 and NHANES III 1988-1994. Logistic regression methods were used to estimate odds ratios with 95% confidence intervals.
Dietary supplements consumed on a daily basis by more than 50% of Multiple Supp users included a multivitamin/mineral, B-complex, vitamin C, carotenoids, vitamin E, calcium with vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, flavonoids, lecithin, alfalfa, coenzyme Q10 with resveratrol, glucosamine, and a herbal immune supplement. The majority of women also consumed gamma linolenic acid and a probiotic supplement, whereas men also consumed zinc, garlic, saw palmetto, and a soy protein supplement. Serum nutrient concentrations generally increased with increasing dietary supplement use. After adjustment for age, gender, income, education and body mass index, greater degree of supplement use was associated with more favorable concentrations of serum homocysteine, C-reactive protein, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglycerides, as well as lower risk of prevalent elevated blood pressure and diabetes.
This group of long-term multiple dietary supplement users consumed a broad array of vitamin/mineral, herbal, and condition-specific dietary supplements on a daily basis. They were more likely to have optimal concentrations of chronic disease-related biomarkers, and less likely to have suboptimal blood nutrient concentrations, elevated blood pressure, and diabetes compared to non-users and multivitamin/mineral users. These findings should be confirmed by studying the dietary supplement usage patterns, health, and nutritional status of other groups of heavy users of dietary supplements.

Shaklee Corporation has been a respected provider of health and wellness products for over half a century. The company founder, Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee invented the multi-vitamin in 1915. In 2000, Shaklee was recognized by President Bill Clinton as the first to achieve “Carbon Neutral” status.
NASA astronauts have used a Shaklee product for years called AstroAide to prevent loosing consciousness due to severe dehydration as they re-enter earth’s atmosphere. Fifty two Gold Medalist Olympians have achieved their dream using Shaklee sports and nutrition products even though the company does not pay for athlete endorsements.
The company has invested an impressive $250 million in scientific research and quality control to ensure their products truly impact key health biomarkers. The company also ensures their products contain the quanities and pure ingredients they identify on the label. The company’s standard for their vitamins and supplements is pure – a standard which is higher than organic.

My husband grew up in California. It is still home to his family and they have lived in northern San Diego for many years. At one point during the coverage of the fires this week I was sure I saw them in a stadium bleary eyed and arms crossed. I called my husband to confirm. Well, he watched for awhile and saw what I meant but it was not them. They had fled to a comfortable family members home and were out of harms way. If the fire wouldn’t have turned due to a shift in the wind direction – their home would have been lost. Fortunately for them, everyone is back home and all is intact.
I remember when my daughter Stephany was 6 years old she was making a peanut butter sandwich with her big sister in the kitchen with her. I was a couple of rooms away. My daughter Dawn came running into my room in a panic and said that Stephany was on fire. I rushed into the kitchen to find her sleeve in flames and I grabbed her and shoved her arm under the water faucet. I saw the burns on her hand and sleeve and called 911 in an absolute panic. Normally I’m calm in emergency situations – fire terrifies me.
God bless the firemen. They came rushing in on that cold, snowy day and appraised the situation. Stephany had been sledding and so her little arm had been protected by 2 layers of heavy clothing. She had received 2nd degree burns on her hand .
I salute all the heroes in California this week and want everyone that suffered losses to know that our family is praying for them. Stay safe and protect your health the best you can by wearing respirator masks and staying indoors. Use an air purifier that will remove the smoke from your indoor air if you can. Our business delivers right to your door and we have a mobile unit for your car or hotel room and a larger unit that will cover up to 3000 sq feet.
Rest heals and restores the body so try to get extra during this time of high stress. It’s important to take B vitamins and calcium magnesium to help calm frazzled nerves. It is a devastating situation of incomprehensible proportion. And again, God Bless the Firemen for risking their lives to stand down the fires.

You know I’m remembering the movie “Children of Men” lately. It was a bit edgy but plausible I thought – all the humans are infertile until one woman becomes pregnant. It’s a mad dash to save the mother and the child.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper is bringing public awareness to a problem that is making my head spin. The chemical load that is burdening our bodies – in our bones, brains, muscle and organs. Do I really want to know this?
You bet I do and I’m going to do everything I can to minimize the amount of toxins I’m putting into my body and in my home. I’m past child bearing years but listen up all you couples that are hoping to conceive – do what you can to get the chemicals out of your home.
First, I found an online quiz to simulate my body burden score. Go ahead and see what your Test reveals. OK, so now you’ve taken the test and have an idea what you can actually change and the things that may be just plain out of our control. So let’s focus on one thing today that we can change – are you with me?
Oprah featured non-toxic home care products on her Earth Day show this year – take a minute to see her feature for going green and toxin free I am using these cleaners and they’re just plain fun to use – GetClean . Go ahead and try them – and send your toxic household cleaners to the hazardous waste site. Yes – that’s what I said. The US government considers common household cleaners as hazardous waste. You can see what chemicals you are spreading around your home – on the floor, table, dishes, in the air you breath by visiting NIH .
So now you have the knowledge and knowledge is consumer power. Get the toxins out of your home and the cool thing about the Get Clean products is – they are made by the first company President Bill Clinton recognized back in 2000 as Carbon Neutral. The first company – ever to be Carbon Neutral.
So this is the first of many changes I’ll be challenging you to make in the coming days. Stay tuned and let me know if you are ready to accept the “Body Burden” challenge.
Please forward this to everyone you know – let’s make a difference – one person at a time.
