Shaklee Vita E Complex Clearance Sale

Good morning all !
As explained in one of my earlier posts, this month Shaklee is having a clearance sale for Shaklee Vita E Complex !

october 2015 promotion vita e

It is stated clearly in the poster that Vita E expires in January 2016, hence the term CLEARANCE SALE ! Hehe.

Usually to purchase two bottles of Vita E, you’d have to fork out almost RM 300 (retail price). But this month, with HALF that price, you can get your hands on TWO bottles of Vita E !

A few suggestions on how you can make use of this buy 2 at 50% promotion is:
1. Give (or sell ?) 1 bottle to a friend or relative.
2. Take 2 capsules daily for extra antioxidant effect. I know of a person who is taking 3 capsules twice a day !
3. Use the capsule externally on scars etc. Click here for my ESP & Vita E mask.

So there, I am sure all of you are smart enough to know that this is definitely an awesome bargain.

Just a short recap on why vitamin E is good for us:

  • Vitamin E is an effective antioxidant that helps fight free radicals in your body, hence making it an excellent nutrient for the skin.
  • Vitamin E aids sex hormones production for both men & women. Shaklee’s Vita E Complex also contains Selenium which helps increase sperm count & motility plus making it a good choice for those concerned about fertility. I have a whole post dedicated to vitamin E and men’s sexual health. Hehe.

A good point to note is that Shaklee’s Vita E Complex also contains grape see extract. You can read more on that if you click here. :)

Feel free to contact me for more details. :)

I fell in love with ESP since I first tried it in October 2012.
My acne scars started to fade, my gastric condition eliminated and my energy was improving.
I was soooo disappointed when I could not take ESP during early pregnancy because it kept coming back out and making me feel nauseous. Hehe.

Yes, ESP is safe to be taken before, during and after pregnancy !
It tastes good on its own, mixed with chilled fresh milk or chilled plain water, but you can mix it with anything you like, blend it into a smoothie or bake cookies with it.

There’s this special remedy for nausea and bloating that I am so excited to share with all of you. It has helped me tremendously in dealing with my nausea and bloating in pregnancy.

It’s none other than Peppermint-Ginger Plus !

These are how the tablets look like. :)

During the recent Raya season (when I was stuffing myself like nobody’s business), my tummy was constantly uncomfortable, bloated and I was nauseous to the point that I literally had headaches.
After popping 3 tablets of Peppermint-Ginger Plus, it relieved ALL the discomfort I was going through. Alhamdulillah.

Quit Smoking with Vivix (Berhenti Merokok dengan Vivix)

Smoking kills.

That’s a fact that I do not have to elaborate about. When you smoke, you don’t only put your own health at risk, but the people around you too.

There are so many who want to quit smoking with little or no success.
Today I would like to share a couple of testimonials regarding smoking and Vivix.
The first is a video of En. Hazrin sharing his experience being ‘kenyang dengan rokok‘ after consuming Vivix.

Secondly, a testimonial from Puan Ieyzan Ghani regarding her mother who has been a smoker since her teenage years.

Resveratrol in Vivix, an Anti-Aging Powerhouse

Resveratrol, is a powerful, antioxidant phenol that is found in grapes. The highest concentrations are found in red wine, but purple grape juice, the skin of young unripe red grapes, and grape seeds also have significant amounts. It’s also found in small amounts in peanuts. Resveratrol has been shown to have anti-aging effects and to boost athletic performance (in mice, rats and primates)

product-contents-2-bg
VIVIX = A unique botanical blend of Polyganum cuspidatum, Muscadine grape, European elderberry and Purple carrot which are rich in Polyphenol nutrients that help to keep you at optimal health.
The key ingredients are found to be 10X more powerful than Resveratrol alone and all you need is one teaspoon per day.

In 2006, investigators at Harvard Medical School and the National Institute of Aging found that mice treated with RESVERATROL lived longer, more active, healthier lives–despite being fed a high-fat, high-calorie diet.

In 2011, a clinical study published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism showed that key ingredients in Vivix blocked a key marker of biological stress response after the consumption of a high-fat fast food breakfast totaling 930 calories

VIVIX AWESOME

In June 2014, researchers found that RESVERATROL prevented arterial stiffening and inflammation in monkeys on a high fat, high sugar diet. It also reduced fatty build up and calcification of the arteries, a condition known as atherosclerosis.

If that isn’t enough,results from a laboratory study at a leading university showed that key ingredients in Vivix inhibited the formation of Age proteins, which may result in cellular damage. See image below:

vivix age protein

Wait, there’s more !

A laboratory study at a leading university showed that key ingredients in Vivix significantly increased mitochondria— the cellular power plants that produce energy.

Tenaga-Sel-Vivix

AND (yes I’m not done yet, hehe)..

Laboratory studies even showed that key Vivix ingredients help protect against DNA damage, supporting DNA replication for healthy cell function.

Just to refresh your memory, all the above is the FOUR KEY MECHANISMS at the cellular level which Vivix® ingredients positively impacts.

You wouldn’t want your cells to give up on you, wouldn’t you ? :)

Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) vs Borage Oil (Shaklee GLA Compelx)

EPO
I am sure many of you have heard of EPO supplements. I have been asked numerous times whether Shaklee has EPO, and my answer is Shaklee offers something better than EPO !
As explained in my previous post, the reason we consume EPO supplements is because they contain gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which is beneficial for women’s health, joint pain etc. Well, Shaklee’s GLA Complex also contains GLA as the name suggests but it is extracted from Borage Oil instead of Evening Primrose Oil.The Shaklee Difference
So why has Shaklee chosen Borage Oil as their source for GLA Complex ?
Simple.  
The most concentrated GLA is from Borage seed !
Evening primrose : 7-10% GLA
 Blackcurrant: 15-20% GLA
 
 Borage: 17-25% GLA

 

This high concentration of GLA is proven to be better in helping relieve PMS symptoms, arthritis symptoms and even eczema.
Every capsule of Shaklee GLA Complex contains 300 mg GLA, and to enhance its effectiveness, GLA Complex also contains Vitamin E & sunflower seed oil which is rich in Omega-6. :)

The importance of Essential Fatty Acids to Women’s Health

GLA

These days, many of us neglect the importance of quality oils and fats in maintaining our health and the prevention of certain diseases.
Essential fatty acids play an important role in producing hormones, cell membrane function, regulating pain, inflammation and swelling, dilating or constricting blood vessels, mediating our immune response, regulating smooth muscle responses, preventing blood clots, regulating blood pressure and nerve transmission, regulating cholesterol levels, and much, much more. Deficiencies of essential fatty acids can lead to many health problems for men and women and some that are particular to women.
The Fatty Acid Science
Essential fatty acids (EFA’s) must be obtained from the diet or supplementation because our bodies cannot make them. Although all fatty acids are the major building blocks of all fats, the most important ones are linoleic acid (LA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). LA is an essential omega-6 fatty acid and ALA is an essential omega-3 fatty acid. We need both omega-6 and omega-3 oils but the balance of omega-6 to omega-3 oils is critical to the proper metabolism of prostaglandins which are important for the regulation of inflammation, pain, blood pressure, fluid balance, blood clotting, steroid production and hormone synthesis, heart, kidney and gut function, and nerve function.
Credits: cholesterolbattle.com
Without adequate amounts of GLA and EPA, prostaglandin 1 and 3 production will be reduced. With an improper balance between omega-6 oils and omega-3 oils, too much prostaglandin series 2 (PGE2) will be produced which is a pro-inflammatory prostaglandin. Both a reduction in the anti-inflammatory prostaglandins and an increase in the pro-inflammatory prostaglandins lead to problems. For women, these problems may include premenstrual syndrome, menstrual cramps, abnormal menstrual bleeding, pregnancy related problems and fetal development, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and breast disease.
Premenstrual syndrome
The main strategy of supplementing with essential fatty acids for PMS is an attempt to raise the body’s own formation of PGE1. The most popular method of doing so has been to supplement with evening primrose oil products in order to supply increased levels of gamma linolenic acid. The effects of EPO have been shown to be best for clumsiness and headaches although all symptoms including depression, irritability, bloating and breast tenderness showed a marked improvement. Other sources of oils that contain gamma linolenic acid and raise PGE1 include borage oil, black currant oil and rape seed oil.
Menstrual cramps
The best medicinal foods for menstrual cramps are those foods that increase the antispasmodic prostaglandins, the PGE1 series and the PGE3 series. Certain fish, like salmon, tuna, halibut, and sardines contain linolenic acid, which is a fatty acid that helps to relax muscles by the production of these prostaglandins. There are many seeds and nuts that are sources of linoleic acid and linolenic acid, which also then produce these muscle relaxing prostaglandins. The best seed sources of both these fatty acids are flaxseeds and pumpkin seeds. Sesame seeds and sunflower seeds are excellent sources of linoleic acid.
Sunflower Seeds
In the second half of the menstrual cycle, omega-6 fatty acids, particularly arachidonic acid, are released. Subsequently, an increase in PGE2 occurs, causing uterine contractions leading to a lack of oxygen to the uterine muscles and the subsequent pain. Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, compete with omega-6 fatty acids and result in the production of the PGE-1 and 3 series. Based on these observations, the use of essential fatty acid supplementation can be very effective in the prevention and treatment of menstrual cramps.
Supplementation with flax oil (high in omega-3 fatty acids), borage oil (high in LA and GLA), black currant oil (high in LA and GLA), evening primrose oil(high in LA and GLA), and fish oils (high in omega- 3 oils), is one way of favorably altering the synthesis of the beneficial prostaglandins; the end result likely will be less uterine contractions and less menstrual pains.
Borage
After the rise of progesterone in the second half of the menstrual cycle followed by its decline right before menstruation – progesterone withdrawal – omega-6 fatty acids, particularly arachidonic acid, are released. Subsequently, an increase in PGF2 alpha and PGE2 occurs, causing uterine contractions leading to ischemia and pain. Instead of inhibiting ovulation and therefore the progesterone effect, or inhibiting the synthesis of prostaglandins with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents, the omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid, compete with omega-6 fatty acids and result in the production of the PGE1 and PGE3 series. Based on these observations, the use of fish oil containing omega-3 fatty acids as a supplement seems logical and attractive.
