The Landmark Study
Researchers gathered a group of Shaklee long-term (20+ years) multi-supplement users and compared their health to single supplement users and non-supplement users. Results were adjusted to account for a number of potential confounders, including age, sex, education, income, and body mass index (BMI).
Questionnaires, on-site physical examinations, and blood work were used to compare nutritional status, serum biomarkers, and self-assessed health status between the three groups.
The dietary supplements consumed on a daily basis by more than 50 percent of the multi-supplement users included a multivitamin/multimineral, B vitamin complex, vitamins C and E, antioxidants, calcium with vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, probiotic, soy protein, glucosamine and an herbal immune supplement.
Researchers discovered that the overall health of long-term multiple supplement users was dramatically different than that of non-supplement users.
The multiple supplement users had improved levels of important heart-healthy biomarkers, including 33 percent lower triglycerides, 36 percent lower homocysteine, 59 percent lower C-reactive protein levels, along with 11 percent lower cholesterol ratios when compared to the non-supplement users. As expected, the multiple supplement users also had higher blood levels of vitamin A, C, E, D, folate, and iron than non-supplement users.
In most cases, the single supplement users’ health markers fell between these two groups, suggesting that multiple supplementation use was both safe and effective.
The Landmark Study is just one study that illustrates The Shaklee Difference: Safe. Proven. Guaranteed
