Finding adventure in the everyday

Cal Mag Plus and Joint Health Complex


Within the past 2 weeks I’ve had some friends try out a new supplement and have amazing results really quickly. I thought I’d let you know a few of the conversations I’ve had.

My mom got a YMCA membership in October/November and started going there every Tuesday and Thursday evening for one of the classes they offer. She was loving the class and how hard they were working her and strong she was feeling, but her hips especially were starting to bother her. She has been using Shaklee products for a few years but had never tried our glucosamine product (Joint Health Complex). She decided to give it a try, and before her first week was up, she was texting me and telling me how amazing she is feeling. She said, “Love the Shaklee Joint Health! My hips don’t hurt. It even makes my back feel better. Like an inside lube job…lol”


Well, she’s actually right. Shaklee’s Joint Health Complex (from the Shaklee website):

  1. Improves cushioning. Glucosamine helps maintain cartilage, the protective cushioning between joints that allows them to move more freely*
  2. Maintains healthy connective tissue. Zinc, copper, manganese, and vitamin C help build collagen and other important components of connective tissue that give strength and structure to joints*
  3. Increases joint comfort.¬†Boswellia extract works fast to blunt the body’s stress response mechanism to improve joint comfort*

All of those things probably would feel exactly like a lube job.

Another friend who is in her 3rd trimester of pregnancy has been struggling with acid reflux. It is the worst, she said, when it wakes her up in the middle of the night. So uncomfortable and sometimes it’s even painful. I know, I had it too this 3rd pregnancy. What I did and suggested to my friend was Shaklee’s Chewable Cal-Mag Plus. I like to give this to my kiddos to make sure they are getting their calcium, but I have learned that it is also amazing at neutralizing acid reflux. I mentioned this to my friend, who tried a few I gave her and she bought a bottle a few days later.


It’s so great to be a part of a company that can make a noticeable difference in health and quality of life. I also love that I know that I know that I know it is so safe. There are things (drugs, over the counter or perscription) that could probably make her feel better, but what could it be doing in the long term to her body. Or what side effects might there be?

As always, I think that these supplements have had the affect they’ve had because of the company they’re from. If you aren’t familiar with Shaklee, or are curious why they are so much better in my mind than others, read this. And feel free to contact me ( if you have any questions.


**I am not a doctor, just a mama who has found some things that are working wonders for her family and friends. I’d love to help it work for you too!
