Every week I get the privilege to take health courses. This past week, I listened to a class on men’s health. You are probably wondering why I would care about men’s health and share it with my readers of mostly women. Well, because most of us take care of a man in our lives. Whether it’s your husband, son, father or brother, you probably have a man in your life that you care about and want him to be healthy. And to be honest, much of what I learned could easily apply to women.
The four leading causes of death in men include heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes. All of which are mostly preventable. One of the main factors that can help prevent these awful diseases (which all can lead to death) is a healthy weight. No one ever dies of obesity, at least that’s not what the doctors write of the cause of death. But it’s obesity that can cause all these diseases.
Heart disease is 80% preventable through exercise, healthy diet and not smoking. And Diabetes is 90% preventable. 1 and 2 adults will be diagnosed with cancer in their life time. 1 in 4 will die in the US. And Prostate cancer being one of top concerns.
The top 4 health products that can help prevent these diseases and change a man’s life include Soy Protein, Omega-3’s, probiotic, and pure drinking water.
Remember when I said these products could apply to both men and women? Here’s why! Soy protein helps build muscle, skin and hormones, it supports the immune system, it retains normal cholesterol levels, promotes heart and prostate health and contains soy isoflavones, which can help minimize hot flashes and promote breast health. Breast cancer runs in my family on my father’s side, so I am all over this protein every morning.
OmegaGuard (Omega3’s) reduces the risk of heart disease, retains healthy triglyceride levels, maintains normal blood pressure and supports brain, eye and joint health.
Optiflora Probiotic Complex supports a healthy immune system by delivering beneficial bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract.
Get Clean Water reduces up to 99% of lead as well as dozens of other contaminants that can turn up in your water and be harmful to your health.
Not all vitamins and health supplements are created equal. Just look at what the FDA found in these vitamins. Choose a brand you know you can trust. Shaklee products – and the quality and science behind them – are unmatched in the industry. Shaklee conducts over 100,000 tests annually to ensure the safety and efficacy of their products. All ingredients in Shaklee products are qualified under the incredibly
stringent Shaklee protocol, unique in the industry, which tests for up
to 350 chemical contaminants, including pesticides, herbicides, heavy
metals, solvent residues, etc. And they are always 100% effective or your money back.
What other company do you know that does that?
