The Road to a Healthier Brain
Do you or anyone dear to you suffer from the following:
- Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
This may feel a lot like major depressive disorder, but the symptoms are brought on by the change of seasons:
It begins and ends about the same time every year. It’s most likely to start in fall, continue into winter, and not end until spring. As with other kinds of depression, you may have less energy, feel moody and anxious, and have trouble sleeping.
- Memory loss:
This can have several underlying causes, and these include aging, medication, (certain medications, such as antidepressants, muscle relaxants, pain medications and antihistamines, cause memory impairment) alcohol, tobacco and drug use, sleep deprivation, stress, depression, stroke, poor diet and head injury. Certain medical conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia and frontotemporal amnesia also cause memory loss, as stated by Mayo Clinic.
Apart from aging, Other substances, such as alcohol and narcotics, have long been known to cause memory loss. Smoking, on the other hand, affects memory by limiting the amount of oxygen that gets to the brain.
- Other depression symptoms.
(Note: Some side effects of one frequently prescribed medication for mood and/or behavior ‘disorders’
- feeling dizzy or weak • feeling restless • feeling sick or being sick • indigestion • constipation • headache • problems with sleeping • feeling dizzy when you stand up.)
Let’s talk about Why MINDWORKS:
One of the reasons that Shaklee began researching and developing MindWorks nearly 5 years ago and applied for their MindWorks patents in 2012 was due to shocking studies that revealed:
- One in eight children are diagnosed with brain development disorders, including autism, ADD, and ADHD and the most often prescribed drugs in the United States are Anti-depressants.
- That by 2050, it’s predicted that the number of Americans with Alzheimer’s is expected to hit 16 million and cost the country $1.1 trillion.

With these statistics in mind it is clear that cognitive health is clearly one of the next big categories for supplements in the future.
I had no idea that brain health—from memory to focus to mood—is one of the most promising growth categories in nutrition, according to the Nutrition Business Journal.
As Shaklee members and distributors, we have the ability to help everyday people become empowered to make better choices and develop simple strategies to keep a fit brain for life.
With the above statistical information in mind:
WHO MIGHT BENEFIT FROM TAKING MINDWORKS? MindWorks provides scientifically supported nourishment for your brain. Those who might benefit from MindWorks are adults who:
• Desire improved cognitive performance
• Want support for memory and reaction time
• Are concerned about normal age-related mental decline.
Does this include you? It certainly does include me:
- At age 72+ my cognitive health is just as important as my physical health. I wish to protect my family against my future impairment after witnessing many friends whose aging parents suffer from various forms of dementia, not to mention that I personally would like to remain alert and of sound mind as long as possible.

and/or contact me direct; I would love to hear from you.
Note: WHAT’S THE SHAKLEE GRANT PROGRAM FOR BRAIN HEALTH RESEARCH? Through the efforts of our Shaklee Independent Distributors, we’ve generated a significant research fund to support nutritional health research in the area of brain health. A portion of the proceeds of each MindWorks bottle sold will be directed toward the Shaklee Grant Program for Brain Health Research, the goal being to reach one million minds with MindWorks and improve the state of nutritional research in brain health.
The fix to Healthier living: Start counting your blessings. Each week, start by reviewing good things that happened in your career and your life in the past week. Keep a daily gratitude list, or a list of your strengths. Eliminate negative self-talk and actively replace it with positive affirmations.
