For 100 years now, Dr. Shaklee’s philosophy has guided everything we do. He believed that each of us could make a healthy difference in the world. His vision first took shape in 1915 with his development of one of the first multivitamins in the U.S. It continued through the next four decades as he exchanged ideas with thought leaders, researched and published four books, explored the science of nature, and considered ways to help people achieve their best. That vision took physical shape in 1956 when he founded Shaklee Corporation. Since then, it has grown in ways even he might not have believed.

We call it The Shaklee Effect—people taking small daily steps towards improving their own lives and the lives of others—and millions around the world have been changed for the better because of it.

So join us, and take a positive step towards the next 100 years.
