    Dear Broadland Friends and Neighbors,

    Some of you know me pretty well. You KNOW I'm passionate about living a full, healthy, productive life.

    And you know, my desire is to help others experience the same thing.

    So, if I came across a drug, some marvel of modern medicine that could:

    Increase blood nutrient levels of all essential nutrients to health, vitality and powerful anti-oxidants such as Folic acid, Vitamins A, C, E as well as Alpha-carotene & beta-carotene

    Lower homocysteine, CRP, triglyceride & cholesterol/HDL ratio and other biomarkers of disease risk

    In addition, if this drug could:

    Cause a 2-3 fold lower incidence of coronary heart disease, heart attack, angina, congestive heart failure, stroke & emphysema

    And a 4-fold lower incidence of diabetes where the difference was noted as highly significant!

    All with absolutely no negative side effects! ...

    ...could you see me keeping this information to myself?

    This is where the Landmark Study comes in.

    The Landmark Study is the very first study designed to evaluate the benefits and risks of multiple supplement use over a long period of time.

    Why is this Landmark study important?

    This independent study was designed by Dr. Gladys Block, one of the top scientists in the world in the field of nutritional assessment, with hundreds of publications. She has designed and validated nutrition assessment forms used in research worldwide.

    The Landmark Study was performed with Shaklee customers who had been using multiple Shaklee supplements for 20 years of more, and compared them to supplement users of others brands and to those who took no supplements at all.

    Most previous studies have been short term, but diseases take 10-30 years to develop. The Landmark study is the first study to look at the benefits of long-term (more than 20 years) supplement use.

    The results: ALL the health benefits I mentioned above!

    "The results of our 50th Anniversary Landmark Study support what we've always known that not all brands of dietary supplements provide equivalent health benefits", said Dr. Jamie McManus, Chairman of Medical Affairs, Health Sciences and Education, Shaklee Corporation. "This study of dietary supplement users showed that people who took Shaklee supplements had markedly better health than both other multivitamin and non-supplement users. Shaklee supplement users retained normal levels of blood pressure, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, homocysteine and C-reactive protein."


    Based on key finding from its 50th Anniversary Landmark Study and twelve clinical studies, Shaklee unveiled Shaklee Vitalizer a ground-breaking combination of 80 bio-optimized nutrients clinically proven to create a foundation for a longer, healthier life.

    Shaklee Vitalizer redefines vitality, providing the best spectrum of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, anti-aging phytonutrients, omega-3 fatty acids and probiotics in one daily supplement pack. To deliver these nutrients most effectively throughout the body, Shaklee Vitalizer utilizes S.M.A.R.T. - a new and proprietary 12-patent/two-patent pending nutrient delivery system that combines immediate, sustained and delayed pH activated release systems.

    Shaklee is committed to creating the best natural nutrition products available based on extensive research. I know that my clients and I can trust that Shaklee products are not only safe, but provide the best supplemental nutrition on the market.

    So what do you get in Vitalizer?

    - 80 bio-optimized nutrients clinically proven to create a foundation for a longer, healthier life

    - Supercharged vitality

    - Enhanced immunity

    - Stress management

    - Antioxidant and DNA protection

    - Heart and brain health

    - Bone and joint health

    - Digestive health

    - Prostate health

    And thanks to the unique Vita-Strip Daily Packs, they are easy to take - no matter where you are - once a day, not "one-a-day." That's because Shaklee is the only supplement product using the SMART delivery system to bio-optimize the delivery of every nutrient so that you get the right nutrients, to the right place, at the right time, based on years of scientific leadership and 12 patents (with 2 more patents pending).

    Why should you and I be using the Vitalizer Pack every day?

    Because we want to live in the here and WOW!

    Supercharged vitality

    Anti-aging phytonutrients

    Enhanced immunity

    Healthy joints

    Healthy heart

    Healthy bones

    Maximize cognitive function long-term

    Healthy breasts

    Protect our DNA

    Healthy prostate

    Stress management

    Healthy skin and nails

    Healthy pregnancy & healthy baby

    Good digestion

    Good nerve & muscle function

    Healthy teeth & gums

    Healthy lungs

    Antioxidant defense

    Healthy colon

    Good vision & healthy eyes

    Bottom Line:

    Changing brands can change your life!

    I know that for some of you the $2.33/day for Vitalizer is more than you are currently paying for supplements. But I honestly don't know how else you can get so many health benefits for so little. And don't try the "I eat a balanced diet" routine on me. According to extensive studies done by the USDA, only 3% of Americans eat a balanced diet! That means 97% of us are "malnourished" when it comes to optimal health and disease prevention!

    On the other hand, I'm going to SAVE money because I can eliminate several bottles of individual supplements I currently take, including Omega's and Probiotics.

    For some of you (be honest), you can EASILY eliminate $2.33/day of poor nutritional choices from your diet (STARBUCKS, fast food, sodas, empty carbs...) and ADD something of proven health benefit. If you won't do it for yourself, do it for those you love. To me, one of the most unselfish things we can do is not become a health burden to those around us.

    If all this seems too strong, perhaps you're beginning to understand my PASSION to help others achieve a higher quality of life -- not so that we can spend it selfishly on our own interests, but so that we can have a positive impact on those around us and help create a healthy, vibrant and loving society.

    Questions? Don't hesistate to contact me at 703-858-9220 (office), or directly at 703-217-4444 (cell), or by email: ericsutton@fitnesstogether.com.

    Believe me, I see too many people living below their potential. I do not want YOU to be one of them! Will Vitalizer cure all your problems? Are you kidding me? But it sure will make it easier for you to handle the problems that come your way, while eliminating several other potential problems along the way!

    To Your Empowerment (as promised),

    Is this a whole food supplement? Forgive my suspicion when anything is ever called a "marvel of modern science" with outlandish claims like every other "proprietary and patented" supplement which claims to be "the only one" you need.

    I can appreciate your skepticism. I assure you these are not "outlandish claims". The technology used in this product comes from an actual clinical study conducted by over 40 scientists specializing in nutrition. If you really want to learn what is so special about this, I encourage you to research for yourself by visiting http://www.nutritionj.com/content/6/1/30/abstract - you can read the short version, or the entire 43 page study. I also encourage you to research Shaklee as a company, read about their code of ethics and manufacturing process. You can learn more about the 50 year old company by visiting http://www.shaklee.net/ftashburn

    The Landmark Study that I referenced entitled "Usage Patterns, Health, and Nutritional Status of Long-Term Multiple Dietary Supplement Users", is the first-ever study on long-term users of multiple Shaklee dietary supplements, and found these users comparatively to have markedly better health as measured by higher blood levels of key nutrients and more optimal levels of key health biomarkers.

    In my opinion, this simply confirms what most of us believed already—that Shaklee long-term consumers have better health than the two comparison groups—those who used just a multivitamin and those who use no supplements at all.

    This is what I do for a living. I research and enjoy debunking garbage information. I would never have posted this if I didn't already spend many hours researching and learning what makes this product vastly superior to anything available on the market.

    Again, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly. I have seen the difference in many of my clients and wanted to get this information out there because of all the mis-information and false claims with other less-ethical supplementation manufacturers.

    Have a happy and healthy Friday!

    No Eric, this is NOT what you do for a living. You are the owner of Fitness Together in Ashburn, which just happens to also sell the products you stated to have so judiciously 'researched'...

    Dear Mr Linux,
    I let my clients' results speak for themselves. Yes, I am the owner of Fitness Together and yes, we are a distributor for Shaklee products, but in selecting this company and their products, I spent over 9 months researching the current supplement market, the companies manufacturing processes, and how their nutrients are absorbed and utilized.

    I challenge anyone reading this post to find a more bio-available product than the Shaklee Vitalizer. My post was made to inform those who already appreciate the value of nutritional supplementation that there was recently a published clinical study, 20-years in the making, that supports the use of these products. If risk prevention and better long-term health is important to you, then I recommend you at least look into it yourself. I'm not here to "sell" you anything. I'm here to inform and let the public make their own decision. I know for me personally, I have tried just about every supplement and product on the market over the last 20 years and NOTHING has worked as well as Shaklee has for me. This is my personal preference and yes, judiciously researched. If you want the facts, read the study - there is nothing fake about that!

    Dear JJenkins:

    There are MAJOR difference between nutritional products on the market. Unfortunately, at this time nutritional supplements are an “unregulated” industry by the FDA. And as a result, 95% of the nutritional products on the market today are NOT clinically tested, don’t have in the bottle or can what’s they claim on the label, and sometimes even contain DANGEROUS stimulants and other artificial ingredients! It’s frightening to talk about, but consuming lesser quality products from the nutritional store or drug store can sometimes be HARMFUL TO YOUR HEALTH! I don’t mean to scare you, but it’s true.

    I’ve done a lot of research on this subject, and I’m ONLY comfortable recommending the Shaklee brand of nutritional products because they are the only manufacturer of natural (not synthetic) nutritional products with over 120 published clinical studies on each and every product they make. Shaklee products are made from higher quality raw and organic materials, formulated at the exact potency required to be balanced in your body (no “missing” ingredients), and their published peer-reviewed clinical studies (online with the National Library of Medicine at www.pubmed.org) show they really work!

    You may not be aware of this, but Shaklee also supplies the majority of all our Olympic athletes with their products (because they ARE so pure and testing “clean” for these athletes is absolutely critical), and they’re even used by NASA. They are the leader in the “natural supplementation” niche by an overwhelming 2 to 1 margin.

    For me to recommend a product to my clients, it must be 100% safe and 100% proven to get results. Those are the guidelines I use to evaluate and make recommendations to my clients, and Shaklee is the ONLY manufacturer that measures up to those standards.
