What Olympic Athletes Can Teach Us About Energy


“What Olympic Athletes can teach us about energy

Sports nutrition products are sold at big-box retailers, drugstores, and even grocery stores. However, many conventional sports nutrition products, especially the most popular retail brands, contain artificial flavors, sweeteners, and preservatives.

Conventional sports products may be untested or they may contain ingredients that are unproven. Rather than testing products in clinical tests or with world-class athletes, many companies choose to introduce new products without scientific substantiation. Additionally, ingredients that can provide important benefits may be missing from some products.

It doesn’t make sense to put unproven or untested ingredients in your body at the same time you are asking your body to deliver maximum effort and optimal performance.

Sports Nutrition at a Glance


Olympic Athletes & Energy


Before Exercise: Shaklee Energy™ Chews.  You need energy for motivation and to “spark” the metabolic reactions that fuel muscles.

Healthy Energy on Demand.  Shaklee Energy Chews provide a clean burst of healthy energy to help you get that extra edge when you need it most. Each chew contains a scientific blend of caffeine from natural green tea extract, plus L-tyrosine, L-theanine, B vitamins, and vitamin D, to help:

+ Sustain energy*

+ Improve performance*

+ Stay alert*

+ Sharpen focus*

+ Improve mood*

Shaklee Energy Chews

Shaklee Energy Chews are more convenient than energy drinks to transport and consume and include:

• Key nutrients such as energy-releasing B vitamins, the antioxidant vitamin C, and bone-building vitamin D

• Key amino acids L-tyrosine and L-theanine—associated with mental alertness and focus

• Natural caffeine from green tea—associated with energy and performance


Olympic Athletes & Fluids


During Exercise: Shaklee Performance® Pure Hydration Drink. A scientific blend of electrolytes to support optimal hydration and our unique mix of carbohydrates to maintain glucose levels for sustained energy output.

Dehydration is the most common cause of fatigue and poor athletic performance. Shaklee Performance is clinically proven to hydrate better than water. Plus, Performance has more electrolytes and provides more energy than the leading hydration drink.  Electrolytes are minerals that control fluid balance, blood volume, heart rate, and body temperature. Electrolytes help balance the need for fluids with thirst to properly hydrate athletes.  Our proprietary OPTI-LYTE™ electrolyte blend in Performance contains six electrolytes to support optimal hydration; the leading brand contains only four electrolytes.  Performance delivers instant and sustained energy and supports optimal hydration. Take the “endure” out of endurance sports.

Shaklee Performance

We call it Performance for good reason. Clinical tests with high level athletes show that Shaklee Performance:

+ Minimizes fluid loss for enhanced hydration

+ Delivers a full spectrum of electrolytes, including calcium and magnesium (not in the leading brand)

+ Maintains blood-glucose levels to sustain intense energy output and to increase stamina


Olympic Athletes & Recovery


After Exercise: Shaklee Physique® Pure Recovery Shake

A scientific blend of protein and carbohydrates proven to improve glycogen synthesis and stimulate muscle recovery after a workout.

More Gain, Less Pain.  Work out harder. Recover faster. Repeat.  Physique is a pure, natural, high-octane fuel for rapid muscle recovery, endurance, and strength.

+ Helps build firm, lean muscles

+ Helps restore muscle energy

+ Supports muscle repair

End every workout with Physique because today’s finish line is tomorrow’s starting line.

Clinically Proven to Accelerate Recovery

Physique with BIO-BUILD® has been clinically proven to naturally activate the body’s recovery process. Plus, the intelligent-release protein blend allows your body to absorb a full spectrum of amino acids over time to help re-energize depleted muscles.

Shaklee Physique Improves Recovery

Recover faster. Recover more completely. Physique restores energy to your muscles when taken immediately after working out and again two hours later.

Shaklee Physique

Shaklee Physique includes:

• BIO-BUILD, a proprietary protein-to-carbohydrate ratio to support rapid recovery and lean-muscle building
