Hi Everyone~

Anyone else going to D.C. that's on the boards?

Here's a nice note from one of the best Master Coordinators in Shaklee regarding the convention .......

__________________________________________________ ______________________________

Greetings from Washington D.C.,

Faye and I arrived a couple days ago and I must say that Shaklee has done it again as this is a beautiful resort and incredible location. People are starting to arrive. Some have been here for 3 or 4 days and have been enjoying the sites.

Faye and I have attended the annual conventions for many years. I think this is our 40th one. Amazing! What I know will happen here is simple but yet very exciting. There will be people whose lives will be changed as a result of being here. It happens every year because this is always a very inspiring experience and it helps give a new perspective.

If you will be here in the next day or so, I know you'll be inspired. If for some reason you are not able to attend this year, start right now to plan on attending the next one. The annual conference is something you don't want to miss. Yes, it is an investment in money and time, but the potential returns are absolutely awesome.

Have a great week. Make something happen....You'll be glad you did.

The New Shaklee Member Referral Program

"Thank You Payments" for Your Members!

Have you ever had a Member share how much they love Shaklee products with a friend and then refer them to you? How did you thank them for that?

Well now there's a new corporate program that thanks your members for you, and encourages them to refer more people. It's called the Shaklee Member Referral Program, and it's this simple:

How It Works:

Your Member sends a special invitation message (with a specially coded link) from the MyShaklee.com site via Facebook, Twitter or email to a friend.

Friend uses the link to visit a special site where they purchase products, and they automatically get a one-time 15% discount.

If the order totals $25 Member Price (MP) or more (excluding taxes, shipping and handling), the referring Member gets a $25 credit they can apply to their next order of Shaklee products.

That's it! Your Members can do this as many times as they like, up to 100 referrals per day, and Shaklee does all of the tracking so that you get credit for all purchases and the contact information of the new customer so that you can follow up and discuss Membership in Shaklee.

Savings abound with this program, and everybody benefits – your Member, your new customer, and your business!

Ok, I REALLY apologize these posts are SO long but I want to share with all of you the great "highlights" from our AMAZING conference! So some info. is repetitive (both posts are written by different people) and yet this post had some good details I thought many of you could appreciate.....especially the telomere discoveries:) Thanks for allowing me to share the great world of Shaklee with all of you;)

Have a wonderful day.......

P.S. For any of you that are reading this and are not yet a part of our great Shaklee family I really encourage you to come and join us!!! There is honestly NO other company like Shaklee that has the Science, the History, the Integrity and the Philosophy that so many people are seeking today!

2011 Shaklee Global Conference News:

Today 8/11/11 was the first official day of the convention. There are approximately 5000 people in attendance. Roger delivered an inspiring opening address, stating that he wanted to mark the first anniversary of the Dream Plan in the nation’s capital where the American dream started with people coming to this country hoping to create a better future for their families. The last few years have been tough for America and for many, the American dream has faded as many have lost their jobs, their homes and even their life savings. He reminded the Shaklee family of our responsibility to take the Dream Plan and share it with others offering them the hope and the ability to create greater income and a better future.

MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS MEETING: I attended the Medical Professionals Meeting last night. The room was PACKED…standing room only…with medical professionals, including physicians, chiropractors, nurse practitioners, nurses, etc. I wouldn’t be surprised if the count was over 1000 people. No other company in the industry attracts this many medical professionals!
Many of the Shaklee clinical studies were discussed…The recently published Cinch/Vitalizer Exercise Study showing greater increase in bone density, lean body mass, and lower blood pressure…the recently published Vitamin D Study showing increased lipid levels…the Suny Buffalo Vivix study showing how Vivix reduces inflammation after a high fat meal (important because inflammation stress is linked to insulin resistance, obesity, toxin accumulation, abnormal cell growth, cardiovascular health and joint health),Dr. Duffy MacKay, VP Scientific and Regulatory Affairs, Council for Responsible Nutrition, spoke about pending legislation in Washington concerning our industry. One really promising bill is called the Family & Retirement Health Investment Act, which would provide reimbursement for dietary supplements. Wouldn’t it be nice to get that one passed!

RESEARCH UPDATE: The Shaklee Telomere Research Landmark Study II
Shaklee…on the cutting edge of research….always! Shaklee is partnering with Nobel Laureate, Elizabeth Blackburn of the University of California, San Francisco, who was named the Nobel Prize winner in physiology or medicine for discovering how chromosomes are protected by telomeres and the enzyme telomerase, in the Shaklee Telomere Research Landmark Study II. This study on DNA and longevity will include 107 Shaklee participants who have been taking Shaklee (Vitalizer, Vivix and Cinch) for approximately five years, as well as a group of non supplement users. Preliminary results of the study are very impressive. If you are like me, I wondered “what the heck are telomeres”? Telomeres are biomarkers of aging…below is what I found on the internet:

Inside the center or nucleus of a cell, our genes are located on twisted, double-stranded molecules of DNA called chromosomes. At the ends of the chromosomes are stretches of DNA called telomeres, which protect our genetic data, make it possible for cells to divide, and hold some secrets to how we age and get cancer. Telomeres have been compared with the plastic tips on shoelaces because they prevent chromosome ends from fraying and sticking to each other, which would scramble an organism's genetic information to cause cancer, other diseases or death. Yet, each time a cell divides, the telomeres get shorter. When they get too short, the cell no longer can divide and becomes inactive or "senescent" or dies. This process is associated with aging, cancer and a higher risk of death.

Dr. McManus: WHY SUPPLEMENT: Society is suffering from chronic disease…we have a war to fight.
• Heart disease is the #1 killer in the U.S; there is a heart attack every 26 seconds and 30 million people live with heart disease. Heart disease is 80% preventable.
• Cancer is the #2 killer, with 1 in every 2 people being diagnosed with cancer. Cancer is 60% preventable.
• Diabetes is called the illness multiplier because it increases risk of cancer, heart disease, arthritis, kidney disease, etc. Diabetes is 90% preventable.
• Obesity is the greatest threat to our health contributing to cancer and heart disease, doubling the risk of heart attack and stroke. Obesity is 100% preventable
Children born in the year 3000 will be the first generation in history of mankind that have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. We are overfed and undernourished. 98% of Americans don’t get what they need every day. We must help reverse these trends…starting with a healthy diet including vitamins, minerals, omega 3 fatty acids, phytonutrients and healthy protein. These are things we have to get from our diet, yet the nutritional content of foods is decreasing. So the key to prevention is Supplementation and Lifestyle.
What do you start with? Disease prevention strategy goes beyond a multi.
• Vitamin D – promotes strong bones, reduces risk of certain cancers, heart disease, autoimmune…even helps gums.
• Phytonutrients/antioxidants – fewer colds and flu, protection from cancer, lower risk heart disease, reduces risk of alzheimer’s
• Omega 3 – reduces triglycerides, blood pressure, helps prevent asthma attacks, supports healthy mood, reduces risk of sudden death, and makes smarter kids
• Probiotic – reduces allergies, prevents urinary tract infections, yeast infections and reduces risk of colon cancer
• Vivix – reduces inflammation after high fat/carbohydrate meals; protects and repairs DNA, promotes mitochrondria production for more energy, reduces AGE protein formation and inhibits glycation, slowing cellular aging.

Dr. Carsten Smidt: NEWLY FORMULATED VITALIZER: Vitalizer is Shaklee’s #1 product in the U.S…the foundation for everyone with the most unique delivery system in the industry. It has everything you need and so much more in one convenient strip. Shaklee stays abreast of rapidly advancing nutritional science, reformulating products when needed….so Shaklee has introduced the all NEW Vitalizer, customized to meet the nutritional needs for men, women and over 50.
*Nutrients added: Completely new formulas with new ingredients: Cranberry extract - 50 mg; CoQ10 – 30 mg; and proprietary Triple Berry Extract (black & red raspberries and blackberries)– 130 mg (equivalent to 1 cup berries)

NEW VITALIZER BOX: Really cool design…panel opens with information about SMART delivery system.

Cindy Latham: MEMBER REFERRAL PROGRAM – OPEN TO ALL MEMBERS: I have covered the incredible new brochures and tools and follow-up system in previous emails, but I wanted to correct one aspect of the Member Referral Program. When a Member (someone who is NOT earning bonuses) refers someone who buys $25 or more in Shaklee products (even if retail), that Member gets $25 product credit automatically placed on their account to be used towards product purchases. This promotion is applicable to EVERY MEMBER…whether old or new…ANYONE who is a Member in your organization can take advantage of the Member Referral Program. A Member can refer an UNLIMITED amount of people who buy $25 or more and receive a $25 product credit for every referral, whether the referral becomes a member or not. If a Member refers 3 people who purchase $25 or more in products, they will receive $75 in product credits on their account making their Vitalizer basically FREE. This is a GREAT way to get people who never want to build a business involved in introducing friends and family to Shaklee!

ELI BREMER, 2008 Olympic Pentathlete: Eli Bremer told us the horror stories of athletes who had been using major brands of supplements who tested positive for banned drugs and were not allowed to compete. He said that they were expanding Shaklee’s presence to elite athletes because Shaklee is the highest quality on the market. More and more athletes are trusting their bodies to Shaklee. He reminded us that we put our reputation on the line every day when we go to our friends, but we can tell them with confidence that Shaklee is the greatest product line in the world.

Les Wong: NEW JOINT HEALTH COMPLEX: For anyone who is at risk of joint problems because of age, weight, overuse, family history or muscle weakness, it is important to know that traditional solutions for joint discomfort cause increased risk of heart attack, high blood pressure, GI bleed, liver or kidney damage and complications in surgery. A 90-day clinical study showed that new Joint Health Complex improved discomfort by 45%, ease of motion by 31% and daily activities by 36%. AND IT WORKS IN FIVE DAYS! You can give someone five tablets…and they will see a difference! Now that is exciting!
