Landmark Study Long Term Benefits of Quality Supplements on Humans

RESULTS OF THE LANDMARK STUDY

 

 

Three groups of people:

 

  1. Those who took no supplements
  2. Those who took a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement (Brand-X uses)
  3. Those who took generous amounts of Shaklee for 20-42 years

 

 

Condition No Supplements Single Supplement Shaklee Members
C Reactive Protein 4.6 3.2 1.9

 

 

Ø      C Reactive protein may be the most important value.  Measures inflammation in the body. Predictive of future cardiovascular disease risk, strongly linked with the risk of developing certain cancers, diabetes and Altzheimer’s disease.

 

 

Condition No Supplement Single Supplement Shaklee Members

Heart Disease

 

5.6 7.1 5.0%
Congestive Heart Failure 3.5 2.8 1.4%
Heart Attacks 4.4 7.6 2.5%

 

 

Ø      Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the U.S.  In all three conditions those who used Shaklee supplements had markedlybetter heart health.

 

Condition No Supplement Single Supplement  Shaklee Members

Type II Diabetes

8.5 11.1 2.9%

 

 

Ø      The study showed a 4-5 times higher incidence of diabetes in the non-user and multi-user group.  Diabetes is epidemic in the U.S. but those taking Shaklee had remarkably less incidence despite many of them being over weight.

 

 

Daily Use No Supplement Single Supplement  Shaklee Members

 

Number of medications 6.4- 14 over the course of a year 6.4- 14 over the course of a year 0.6

 

Ø      Perhaps one of the most telling results. Think of the side effects- liver and kidney damage, brain fog, poverty vs. living medication free.

 

 

Health Rating No Supplement Single Supplement Shaklee Members
% that Felt Good about Their Health 49.10 55.6% 84.20%

 

 

The Shaklee members were on average 10 years older than their counterparts.  They also retained normal levels of blood pressure, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and homocysteine.  These are markers of inflammation and are warning signals.  The other groups did not retain normal levels of these markers.

 

 

For a complete account of the research study go to www.nutritionj.com/content/6/1/30

 

The study title is “Usage patterns, health and nutritional status of long –term multiple dietary supplement users: a cross- sectional study.”

 

 

The Study proved that taking generous amounts of high quality (Shaklee) supplements provides substantial health benefits over the long term.

 

 

 

 

 

Using Video To Get Mega Traffic and Free Leads for your MLM or ANY Business

Video, Internet, media, laptop, cell, desk top

Video King of Social and Internet Media

I’ve put up many well done videos on the 140 posts on this blog. Just got a video that downloads directly to You Tube and my first You Tube Channel. I”LL SHOW HOW TO USE THIS BLOG SITE AND VIDEO TO GET ALL THE FREE MLM LEADS YOU WILL EVER NEED.

Using video marketing to drive traffic to your web site is an online marketing strategy many small business owners and internet marketers are beginning to embrace, with much success. Having a traditional website only allows you to reach those people who first find your website. However, combining video, social networking and some simple video marketing techniques can drive hordes of qualified visitors to your website.

First, let’s forget the silly videos you’ll find all over YouTube of kids running into fences and demonstrating the newest dance move. While that kind of video can bring in hundreds of thousands of views, it won’t bring the targeted traffic you need.

Instead, consider making a video tightly targeted towards your niche. A real estate agent might make a video introducing herself and showcasing a few of her available homes for sale. A night club might make a video “commercial” with soundbites from partygoers. A software developer might make a video demonstrating his latest application.

Because Google and other search engines are beginning to give videos hosted on sites like YouTube preferential search engine ranking, it’s quite possible your video could end up on the first page of search results for your targeted keyphrase. This is incredibly powerful and not to be overlooked, as this is what will make your video marketing efforts well worth the time you invest in them.

Consider that YouTube itself may not have a huge market of people looking for videos on “Oakland real estate.” But if your video titled “Oakland Real Estate” made the first page of Google search results (again, due to the preferential search results video is receiving in the search engines) you’d benefit from the hundreds of people who search for that term in Google seeing your video as the #1 result and ,in turn, watching your clip.

With the preferential treatment videos are receiving in search results, the question then becomes, “How do I move people from watching my video on YouTube to actually visiting my website?”

This is simple. Bribe them, at the end of your marketing video. What follows are some ideas:

* Offer them something for free at your site (a consultation, a report, free drink, demo version, MP3 download, etc.)

* Poll them or ask them a question they need visit your site to answer. People love to give their opinion. You can combine with the free offer, above, by giving them the freebie upon completion of the poll or question. This is invaluable for market research.

* Leave ‘em hanging. Don’t tell the whole story on your YouTube hosted video – instead, tell them just enough to incite curiosity. Then, instruct them to visit your site for the complete story or answer.

Each of these ideas are intentionally broad can be focused indefinitely and molded to fit your target market.

The key here is catching your audience while they’re hot; directly after having watched our video and giving them a reason to continue on to your website. The truth is that if you don’t, most will simply click through to another video or search result. Capitalize on their attention and tell them where to go and what to do next – you’ll be surprised at how many will comply!

Even if you’re no Spielberg (I know I’m not) you can produce traffic sucking videos with these simple methods.

Weight is a Heart Issue

Weight Is a Heart Issue


What is being overweight?
Overweight and obesity are both defined by Body Mass Index or BMI (which is a ratio of weight to height). A BMI between 25 and 30 places someone in an overweight category and 30 or higher is considered obese.

 

 

 

Why control your weight?
The classifications of overweight and obese are not simply labels; there is a dramatic increase in the likelihood of disease as people increase their BMI, such as:

  • Coronary artery disease (CAD)
  • Certain cancers
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol and triglycerides
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes

The cost of being overweight
Obesity itself is not what causes the harm; it is the diseases that are associated with obesity that cause the harm. The costs of these diseases and syndromes are enormous, and that doesn’t even begin to calculate the personal, physical, and emotional problems associated with increased BMI.

  • Obese people are expected to live 2-4 years less than someone with a healthy weight; the extremely obese (BMI over 40) have 8-10 years taken off their life expectancy. i
  • More than one-third of adults in the U.S. are considered overweight and another one-third are obese.
  • The medical costs associated with obesity are estimated at over $150 billion dollars.
  • Obese people cost an average of $1,429 more in medical services per year than someone who is normal weight.

 

What can I do to control my weight?
There is much you can do to control your weight. First of all, there are no easy answers. Reducing and maintaining a healthy weight is one of the best tools we have to forestall or avoid many diseases.

1. Lifestyle: Get support, exercise, track your progress, and eat a low-fat and low-calorie diet.
2. Boost Your Metabolism: Maintaining or increasing your lean body mass (muscles) is your best bet for keeping your metabolism going strong. There are a variety of supplements that can help with your metabolism as well.
3. Leucine: The amino acid leucine is great at helping maintain muscle mass, especially in people who are cutting calories and exercising. ii
4. Protein: Not only does protein help you feel full longer, it also helps you keep your lean body mass. Starting the morning with a good protein or protein shake helps you feel full longer. iii
5. Fiber: The benefits of fiber on weight loss are many. Studies have shown that fiber can help you feel full, support blood sugar, and it helps remove cholesterol from the body as part of a healthy diet.iv
