Shaklee Products

Recommended Posts

I just heard from a friend who recommend that I try Shaklee products. I've been on the gluten-free diet for 1 1/2 years now and still have very elevated antibodies. She swears by them. But she also said that they would cure all my problems, which I know is not true. I think she's trying to be helpful and optimistic but doesn't understand celiac disease.

What are your thoughts on these products?

Lisa, is there a reason why you don't recommend their products? I can see by their quotes that I wouldn't trust them either.

I'm worried about taking any supplements these days because of possible cross contamination.

I'm certain that you can find safe recommendations from members here who take supplements without issues of cross contamination. Cross contamination is not as great a concern as some indicate it as such.

I am not comfortable with companies who recruit membership to market their products, that profess a remedy to good health, from people who are ill or know someone else, for an extraordinary amount of money. :huh:

I used to buy Shaklee's breakfast powder... similar to Instant Breakfast but w/o all the additives and crap. My kids loved it mixed with milk and it was a good quick breakfast on those crazy mornings. I bought it from a woman who actually had a Shaklee store. Sure, she tried to get me to be a distributor, but I knew the game and just kept telling her I wasn't interested.

All that said... that was 15-20 years ago... long before me or my 3 daughters were diagnosed w/ celiac... so I can't attest to the stuff being good for celiacs at all.
