Well it has happened again! This time the not so truthful people are the joint supplement makers in the general market. According to an article in newhope360.com, the chondroitin in most joint supplements contains an ingredient that is normally marketed as Calgon®.   Seems that the chemical is common in lots of processes, but when consumed by humans it can deplete the calcium in your body.  Which is ironic when found in joint supplements!  Thank goodness for Shaklee!

 Shaklee, of course, is not involved with this since Shaklee's Advanced Joint Health Complex does not contain chondroitin.  
Advanced Joint Health Complex* contains a patent-pending, fast-acting form of Boswellia extract, a concentrated form of glucosamine and other key joint nutrients to help bring joint comfort and mobility.Patent-pending, fast-acting form of Boswellia extract: In a clinical study, it has been shown to improve joint comfort in as a few as five days*
    The most concentrated form of glucosamine. Glucosamine is clinically proven to:

+The specific form of Boswellia extract used in Advanced Joint Health Complex* has been shown in a clinical study to improve joint comfort in as few as 5 days.

We all have those days that are long, tiring and never ending! They start early after a short sleep and continue well into the evening.  The challenge with those days are the need to stay sharp, focused and in a better mood.  When we have those days, and we all do from time to time, staying well nourished is even more important than ever! 

I wanted to share this list of amazing Shaklee Pure Performance Team Members who will be competing in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.  From the Shaklee Sports Nutrition to the Targeted Solutions offered by Shaklee, the #1 Natural Nutrition Company in the U.S.A., these athletes depend on the convenience, potency, purity and unleashed power created by our many nutrition products they use daily.  After the Olympics, their stories will be on our Shaklee Pure Performance website, but because of IOC rules, they will not be on the site till after the Games are over.

Shaklee has partnered with Elite Athletes of all types throughout our history. From Olympic Athletes to Professional Golfers to Iron Man competitors, Shaklee Sports Nutrition Shaklee Sports Nutritonpowers the best of the best. Put the Best In.  Bring the Best Out.

I have used Shaklee's Soy Protein products on a daily basis since 2004 and I have enjoyed the many benefits of good soy protein.  "Soy protein has been used for centuries as part of Asian diets", according to Dr Mark Messina. Dr. Messina is an adjunct associate professor at Loma Linda University and the Executive Director of the Soy Nutrition Institute. He has been studying the health effects of soy for more than 20 years and has published more than 60 scientific papers and given more than 500 presentations on soyfoods to health professionals.

Before, during and after events, be sure to hydrate with cool liquids in small amounts,early and often.  According to Les Wong, Shaklee's VP of Health Sciences, Shaklee Corporation, Shaklee has been working with Elite Athletes for over 30 years.  Shaklee Powered Athletes have won over 100 medals in the Winter and Summer Olympic games along with many other elite athletic competitions.  Sports drinks like Shaklee Performance can be especially helpful but should first be tested in training before use in competition.

Shaklee Sports NutritonPre-Event:  Nutritious foods including sandwiches, salads, fruits, and Shaklee Cinch Meal Bars or Snack Bars are best consumed 2 - 4 Hours before exercise.  More rapidly absorbed Nutritional Shakes including Cinch Shakes or Meal Shakes may be consumed as little as 1 Hour before a event depending on an individual’s digestive comfort.  Continue hydration right up to the start of training or competition  (Energy Chews may be considered an energy boost 15-30 minutes prior to competition.)

During:  Continue hydration every 15 - 30 minutes, depending on conditions. For events lasting more than an hour, nutrition bars, gels and rapidly digested carbohydrate rich foods, including fruits like bananas, apples and bagels, may be consumed in addition to fluids.

Post Event:  Protein, carbohydrate, and fluids should be consumed immediately after exercise to maximize muscle energy refueling, muscle repair and ,muscle rebuilding.  Physique is proven to trigger the body’s anabolic state and enhance the body’s recovery process in response to exercise.  Continue to hydrate post-exercise and consume additional Physique (or other foods) an hour or two after exercise, especially if you have daily or multiple workout sessions.

Nutrition for Sports Competition

Medals From Vancouver Winter Olympics 2010For over 30 years, Shaklee nutrition has been powering Elite Athletes from all sports. In the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, Shaklee powered the US Ski Team and the US Snowboarding athletes to win an amazing total of 21 Medals! The USA won a total of 37 Medals, so Shaklee powered athletes make a big contribution to the total.
