DANGERS OF SUGAR Damage to Digestive Tract - Reduces production of digestive enzymes Leads to allergies and immune issues Competes with Vitamin C for entrance into our white blood cells. Achieving a low sugar diet can actually be an immune system booster Feeds Candida yeast (80% of immune system in gut)

REGULATION OF DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS The FDA does NOT ensure potency, purity or biologic activity of the ingredients in dietary supplements. There is no registration or clearance by the FDA before a dietary supplement goes on the market.
MARKETING SUPPLEMENTS Supplement Manufacturers are using the data that already exists in the industry and formulating their "nongmo, organic, pure" products and selling them based on existing knowledge. Testing ingredients and finished products for toxins, efficacy and potency is expensive. (think about release of a new drug) Since manufacturers are not required very few do test. Prior to releasing a product manufacturers only have to prove that a product is reasonably expected to be safe!!!
MARKETING SUPPLEMENTS SHAKLEE TESTS ALL INGREDIENTS EVERY TIME AND ALL PRODUCTS DURING AND AFTER MANUFACTURING. In addition to testing every new ingredient for over 350 harmful contaminants, we conduct over 100,000 quality tests a year to ensure the greatest purity possible. We've also invested over $250 million in clinical testing, research, and development and are backed by over 100 scientific papers—including the first-ever 20-year Landmark Study, published in Nutrition Journal
