Turmeric potency varies among products

 What do apple slices have to do with turmeric?

You are a kid who loves apple slices. Each day you go to the local fruit stand and give him your dollar.  He gives you an apple slice and you are so happy. You are “Keeping the doctor away.(?)”

You go to visit your cousin who also loves apple slices. When you accompany him to his local vendor he gives the man a dollar and a half and the man gives him 19 apple slices.

How do you feel about your vendor and the apple slice you get? You are getting only 5% while your cousin is getting 95%.

From Apples to Turmeric


You see, this is like turmeric.  If one is taking turmeric from the grocery store spice aisle, he or she is only getting about 5% curcumins, the active ingredient in turmeric root.  If he or she is taking Shaklee’s Turmeric Boost, they are getting 95% curcumins.  Shaklee is using a Standardized Extract of turmeric.  Standardized!  Understand how much more value and benefit is there in a standardized extract.  Standardized Turmeric extract is heads above Turmeric root.

Turmeric has been used for ages as a seasoning for food.  Many began to see the health benefits of this spicy root as well.  As with any food item, the nutritional value varies from product to product.  This orange may have many  times the vitamin C as that orange.  Growth and processing methods also affects the nutritional value of foods.

I only began using turmeric when Shaklee introduced Turmeric Boost.  After a short time, I noticed a big difference in a cranky hip.  It is so much better now that I am being consistent with my “curcumin” intake.

What is being overweight?

Being overweight or obese 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.

  1. -Coronary artery disease (CAD)
  2. -Certain cancersHigh blood pressure
  3. -High cholesterol and triglycerides
  4. -Osteoarthritis
  5. -Sleep apnea
  6. -Stroke
  7. -Type 2 diabetes


The cost of being overweight Two of the personal costs of being overweight are:

  • -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
  • -Obese people cost an average of $1,429 more in medical services per year than someone who is normal weight.

  • Lifestyle: Get support, exercise, track your progress, and eat a low-fat and low-calorie diet.
  • 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.
  • Leucine: The amino acid leucine is great at helping maintain muscle mass, especially in people who are cutting calories and exercising.
  • 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.

Heart disease prevention and a healthy heart is discussed by Dallas Health Helpers.what is strokeHeart disease is the number one killer in the United States. But 80% of heart disease is preventable.  The power to have a healthy heart is in your hands.

Is being high a risk to heat disease?  High cholesterol, high blood pressure and high weight are definitely conditions that contribute to poor heart health and a shortened lifespan.  So let’s look at these unfavorable situations that can lead to an early death.

High cholesterol:  leads to twice the risk of heart attack and heart disease or stroke. Cholesterol is a waxy substance in all our cells and in our blood.  Hardening of the arteries occurs when plaque, made up of cholesterol, calcium and fat builds up in arteries surrounding the heart, leading to heart attack, heart failure or stroke.  You are borderline high in total cholesterol if your count is above 200.  you are considered high in total cholesterol if you are above 230.

Here are some statistics:

• One third of all adults have high cholesterol and half of them do nothing to control it.
•  An estimated 71 million adults have high cholesterol.
•  An estimated 935,000 heart attacks occur every year.
•  An estimated 795,000 strokes occur each year.
•  Men still outnumber women in heart attacks, but not by much. More women than man have strokes. 

What can you do to lower cholesterol?

There is much that you can do to help control cholesterol.

  1. Lifestyle: Start by having your total cholesterol checked regularly. Eat a healthy diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables.  Avoid packaged, fried, and fast food. Lose weight if you are not your ideal weight. Exercise and avoid smoking.
  2. Sterols: Plant sterols and stanols (2,000 mg/day) have been shown in multiple studies to help lower total cholesterol levels, coupled with the lifestyle changes above.  They appear to work by blocking the absorption of cholesterol in the diet.
  3. Fiber: Multiple studies have shown the benefit of fiber on lowering cholesterol levels in high-risk subjects.
  4. Soy: Soy supplementation has been shown to help lower cholesterol. Soy contains isoflavones, which are believed to be soy’s main cholesterol-lowering ingredients.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, talks about Laura’s journey into weight loss and how to get healthy.

Laura Evans is Senior Vice President of Sales and Field Development at Shaklee Corporation.  She balances her life around everyone else in my life –  children, husband, family, friends, job, staff, boss and customers.  However as her career grew, so did she!! She knew that being overweight was not how she wanted to age gracefully and not what she wanted her kids to experience.

Get Healthy

She realized she was not at a healthy weight, according to the medical data after taking look at the Body Mass Index chart. Deciding that she needed to make a change, she chose Shaklee 180 from Shaklee. She was tired of “yo-yo dieting;” she has lost and gained hundreds of pounds many times over. The preliminary clinical study with real people conducted with Shaklee 180 resulted primarily in fat loss and muscle retention. Muscle helps metabolism.  The goal includes how to get healthy.

She set her goal to mirror what the clinical study participants had achieved:  lose 15 lbs in 90 days. To her surprise, she lost weight AND her body shape changed from a “mom look” to athletic. She had never been in her life!  Cinch changed her life for the better, for good!  See Laura’s story here.

In a preliminary study of the Cinch Inch Loss Plan, participants on average lost 15.4 pounds in 12 weeks.
