I have never really taken vitamins...terrible, I know. I didn't even take prenatals cause of how they made me feel. Being a mom of three little ones, most days I am functioning on little sleep and I am required to be patient, hardworking and energized. I started thinking about maybe taking some vitamins to supplement what I wasn't getting from food. I went to the local health food store, spent about $50 and went on my way. A few weeks into it and I was happy to be taking the vitamins but I honestly didn't feel any different. I thought that was normal, that you weren't supposed to *feel* the vitamins. When I started distributing for Shaklee I was really excited to start taking their vitamins. It's been about 3 weeks and I can truly say that I am seeing a difference in how I feel. I haven't changed anything else and since the past few weeks have been especially low in the sleep department (umm like 4-5 hours a night-ick!!!) I can only assume it's the vitamins that are helping!!!
Shaklee vitamins are made from whole foods. This is an important concept to understand. Synthetic vitamins are TOXIC to our bodies! They are made through chemical processes, rather than derived directly from plants. If your vitamins don't say "made from whole foods" they are no good for you! You are better off not taking any.
I found this great article that really helped me to understand the importance of taking a "good" vitamin:
