Shaklee Corporation with 100 years of product research enlist some of the best scientist like Elizabeth Blackburn, 2009 Nobel prize winner for Medicine for the discovery of an enzyme that lengthens and protects chromosomes. Over time, our telomeres gradually become shorter and telomere length is thought to be a marker of overall health
Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn conducted the following study
- Shaklee conducted a telomere study that compared people using Shaklee supplements for at least 5 years to healthy nonsmokers living in the San Francisco Bay Area, and showed that the rate of telomere shortening in Shaklee users was 40% lower than the healthy control group.
- A statistical analysis projects that an 80 year old Shaklee user would have the same telomere length as a 41 year old.
Dr. Blackburn’s study follows on the heels of another famous study that Shaklee was a part of at UC Berkley. The summary of that study is as follows:
Shaklee scientists have published 125 scientific papers and presentations including the Landmark Study, which was conducted by UC Berkeley and remains one of the largest studies ever on long-term supplement users.
Shaklee supplement users had markedly better health than non supplement users, and were shown to have:
- 11% lower cholesterol ratios, a key marker for cardiovascular health
- 33% lower levels of triglycerides, a critical biomarker for heart health
- 36% lower levels of homocysteine, an indicator of brain and cognitive health
- 59% lower levels of c-reactive protein, a key biomarker for long term biological stress
