Holy Sweet Stains!!

There are hair pulling moments as parents.  And, about a month ago, I came home one evening from running errands to a medium sized purple stain on the carpet.  Keith tells me the boys spilled a berry berry smoothie on our plush beige carpet.  In my brain, I was yelling at the top of my lungs.  (Do you ever have the feeling, if I have one more mess???)  I took a deep breath and said, I will deal with it tomorrow.  I am beat.

So, I'm sure you are seeing the purple stain along with the green streak and smudges.  Yes, the saga continues!!  The next morning, MIC (Mom in charge), the boys found green paint and had a fun loving time! We have 'beautiful' paintings hanging on the fridge along with our perfect looking carpet becoming less and less perfect by the minute.  I paused to wonder how many times the widow who sold the house to us had to clean stains from the carpet.  I am guessing, not too many times....

I pulled out my Shaklee, Get Clean cleaners and started scrubbing!  Thank goodness I could use cleaners in the playroom that are nontoxic and I can feel rest assured the space would be safe when the boys would play in the room.  Now take a look at the dark spot of green.  That was one HUGE blob of green paint.

See my foot (I'm wearing gold flats.)  Right above my foot was where the green blob WAS!!!  So our carpets look as good as new.  And, hopefully we've learned our lesson:  WATCH the boys better when they have berry berry smoothies and get rid of the paint!!

(I used a Shaklee mixture!)

(Okay, so we'll still let them do painting projects.  Noah and Eli are lucky they are cute!)

Enjoying drinks in the kitchen!

Ironically, on the night I typed this blog, my friend Kara had a hair pulling 'mom' moment!  She said her kids were lucky they have Shaklee scour off!!!

Vitamin D~Are you getting enough?

Vitamin D

Are you getting enough Vitamin D?

Check out this link to see if you are getting enough Vitamin D.

The most common medical condition in the WORLD, with often devastating and even fatal consequences, is Vitamin D deficiency. This disease affects OVER 200 MILLION people in North America alone! NOW, YOU should NOT be one of them! TAKING TIME TO REVIEW THIS INFORMATION COULD DRAMATICALLY IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH AND MAY EVEN SAVE YOUR LIFE!

In the book, "The Vitamin D Solution" by Dr. Holick, "Fat cells, too, have vitamin D receptors, and fat cells can be more metabolically active (burn more calories) if they have more vitamin D."

ASK YOUR DOCTOR about the overwhelming research that is currently making headlines in numerous published clinical studies and the stunning information found in virtually every respected medical journal in health care!

One wellness doctor, Dr. Cobb, M.D. explains that there are 3 vitamin D levels:
Stone Age recommendation:  greater than 33
20th Century: 50-100
Now~Wellness level: 80-120

Increasing the amount of Vitamin D in the body can prevent or help heal a remarkable number of ailments:

Back Pain
(Breast, Colon, Prostate)
Chronic Fatigue
Dental Problems
Heart Disease
High Blood Pressure
Kidney Disease
Muscle Cramps
Seasonal Affects Disorder

I have a personal story about how Vitamin D has helped me as a woman!!  Message me at and I'd be happy to share that story with you.

What Shaklee calls the "The Shaklee Difference"  What I call, why Shaklee is the "Right Fit" for my family.

Check out this photo:  The capsule on the left is the "fish oil drops" Vitamin D3.  The tablet on the right is Shaklee's Vitamin D3.  Read below to see how Shaklee sets the standard:

“What is the difference between Shaklee’s Vita-D3™ and other Vitamin D3 products on the market??”

Vitamin D stand alone supplements have usually been in the form of fish oil drops or oils encapsulated in soft gelatin capsules. We use a very stable, compressible form of powdered vitamin D3 in
our new Vita-D3 formulation so that we can make tablets, not capsules, as the desired dosage form for this product. By adding an aqueous film-coating, we can make them easy to swallow.
There is physically only a very small amount of vitamin D3 in each tablet because it's such a biologically active molecule - 1,000 IU are delivered by only 25 micrograms of the vitamin! If we were to
put this small amount of active ingredient into even a small soft gelatin capsule, it would have to be diluted with quite a bit of an edible oil to fill the capsule and this would contribute unwanted extra calories. In a tablet, we can use non-caloric diluents such as dicalcium phosphate (which also acts as a source of calcium) and microcrystalline cellulose.  The compressible powdered form of vitamin D3, which has ingredients added to it to provide ongoing stability from oxidation and protection from heat during tablet compression, is more stable than vitamin D3 dissolved in  oil, which needs to be protected from oxidation at all times. Once in the stomach, the powdered vitamin matrix in our tablets breaks down and releases the fat-soluble vitamin D3 so it can be absorbed easily in the intestine.  The other Shaklee Difference of course is that each raw material and batch of tablets is tested to very high standards of quality, including checks for purity, potency and identity.

P.S.  Remember Dr. Shaklee taught building the foundation for our bodies first which is quality raw protein.  Amino acids build new cells.  Along with the protein a wonderful vitamin strip for feeding our cells to keep them healthy.  Shaklee's Vita-D3 would compliment a solid foundation for building excellent health.
