                                     Barbara Lagoni

                      Heat disease is the number one killer disease in America. The good
                      news is that by following a good prevention program of exercise, a
                      diet high in fiber, low in fat and keeping our cholesterol level at 180
                      or below can significantly reduce our risk.

                      The following supplements may also help….




Shaklee Basics:
A box of Shaklee Basics provides a 30-day supply of the following heart protecting nu-
trients in convenient daily snap-off, put-in-your-pocket, run-out-the-door & away-you-go
individually wrapped vitamin packs.

Vita-Lea: For excellent multi-vitamin, multi-mineral absorption.

B-Complex:
B vitamins have been shown to lower homocysteine in the blood stream, which may be
a greater contributor to heart disease than smoking or cholesterol.

In addition to Vita-C’s antioxidant qualities, it has also been shown to reduce risks for
cataracts, cancer, colds & viruses. Shaklee’s 500mg Vita-C has a unique sustained-
release system based on all-natural plant gums & waxes, maintaining high levels of
Vita-C for an amazing 24 hours in the blood.

Vita-E:
Several studies have indicated it may reduce risk of death of heart disease by a whop-
ping 40%! Shaklee Vita-E Plus also contains grapeseed extract which offers additional
antioxidant protection for the heart.

When combined with antioxidants Vita-C and CarotoMax the protection may be even
greater.

Cholesterol Regulation Complex:
A unique blend of clinically proven ingredients that can help you retain normal choles-
terol levels. This proprietary blend of natural ingredients inhibits the absorption of die-
tary cholesterol and increases HDL (“good”) cholesterol.

It does all this without interrupting production of coenzyme Q10, a nutrient important to
heart health because it helps cells produce energy.

Essential Omega:
3 Complex-Reduces 3 risk factors for heart disease; helps lower cholesterol, triglyc-
erides and elevated blood pressure; also a natural anti-inflammatory.

In addition to lowering serum cholesterol, garlic has also been shown to lower triglyc-
erides and blood glucose in diabetics. It acts as a natural anti-inflammatory, anti-
bacterial, anti-fungal and protects the liver from toxins, kills intestinal parasites and also
is used as a treatment for colic when breast-feeding.

Energizing Soy Protein Drink Mix:
Isoflavones are the special substances in soy that are believed to help lower choles-
terol, reduce risk of breast and prostate cancer, help control PMS and menopausal
symptoms and reduce the risk of kidney and gall stones. Not all soy foods contain as
high a level of isoflavones as this convenient drink mix.

Optiflora Pre & Probiotics Complex:
