Celebrating the birth of a man who changed the world, bringing innovation and untold benefits for all of us today.
Do you take vitamins, or drink a plant based protein smoothie, or use environmentally friendly “green” cleansers? Whether you use this brand or not, you have Dr Shaklee to thank for it.
Living in Harmony with Nature was his philosophy more than a 100 years ago. Dr. Shaklee believed God created nature to sustain us and that the further we as a society stray from nature, the more out of whack our health becomes. His research led to the first extraction of vitamins from plants and vegetables in a vitamin form in the US, which he named Vitalized Minerals – known today as vitamins, providing an easy means for restoring healthy balance.
He also believed we should be good stewards of nature, which led to his development of Basic H, the first biodegradable household cleaner in US. (In fact, Dr. Shaklee invented the first biodegradable products here when green was still just a color! lol )
