What is a 180?
Shaklee 180 is the revolutionary weight loss program from Shaklee Corporation that allows you to safely and easily lose fat and keep it off for good! So many diets promise to help you to lose weight but fall short! Most programs cause you to lose weight, not fat. At Shaklee we have a simple, affordable program that takes us from start to finish and helps us to maintain a healthy weight.
The secret to Shaklee 180™ products is leucine—an amino acid that signals your body to retain muscle, so you lose the right kind of weight. On conventional diets you lose muscle along with the fat. Shaklee 180™ is designed so that nearly every pound you shed is fat. Since your metabolism is powered by your muscles mass, when you retain muscle your metabolism stays stronger which can help you keep off that hard fought weight loss.
What is special about the 180 smoothie?
Considerable research has shown that the low glycemic nature of the Shaklee 180 Smoothee is a major contributor towards its success. Researchers in Denmark worked with a group of 1200 people who had already lost at least 8% of their body weight through dieting. The object of the study was to determine what diet would help them to maintain that weight loss. They designed four follow-up diets: a low-protein and low-glycemic index diet, a low-protein and high-glycemic index diet, a high-protein and low-glycemic index diet, or a high-protein and high-glycemic index diet. Of these four active plans, the only diet that helped participants to maintain their weight loss, and continue to lose even more weight was the high protein and low glycemic diet...and that is the exclusive design of the Shaklee 180 Smoothee formula.
*The weight-loss portion of the Shaklee 180™ Program was tested in a preliminary 12-week clinical study.

Top 3 Reasons To Love The Leucine in Shaklee 180
Leucine is an essential amino acid that helps with protein synthesis. In other words, it's a one of 9 building blocks of protein that can only be obtained from the diet. Once absorbed, leucine goes directly to muscle tissue, where it activates a chain of events that ultimately creates lean muscle. When your body has enough leucine, your body can start making muscle protein. And the more leucine you have, the more muscle you can build.
#1 INCREASED METABOLISM
Increasing your metabolism is the key to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight for the long haul. On most weight loss diets, you lose muscle in addition to fat. That's because when you take in fewer calories than your body needs, your body has less energy to fuel basic biological functions. To make up for that, your body breaks down muscle proteins for energy. This is bad because it's your muscles that help burn calories. A pound of muscle burns about 10-20 calories a day while a pound of fat burns 5 calories. When we incorporate leucine in our diets we stimulate protein synthesis that helps our body preserve muscle mass while we lose the right kind of weight—from fat. According to BodyBuilding.com, “Leucine helps burn visceral fat, which is the deepest layer of fat in the body and often unresponsive to diet and exercise.” By incorporating leucine in our diet we will increase our muscle mass and burn more calories all day long. Leucine may also be of particular benefit as we age since we want to maintain stronger muscles.

They lost about 50% more body fat than non-users!
#3 HELPS ELIMINATE TOXINS FROM YOUR BODY
One factor that is often overlooked as a reason people gain weight is toxic overload. Simply put, people often have difficulty losing weight because their bodies are full of poisons. When toxins accumulate in the body, the liver and other organ systems try to filter them out of the body, when the liver is overloaded, it cannot efficiently burn body fat and the toxins are stored in fat cells. When the body is overloaded with toxins, the body transfers its energy away from burning calories and uses that energy to work harder to detoxify the body. The more toxins the body is storing, the more fat it is likely to accumulate and retain. One of the greatest benefits of leucine is that we know we are losing fat and keeping muscle therefore getting rid of toxins in the process. These poisons or toxins can come from many sources including pesticides, growth hormone, antibiotics, artificial flavors/sweeteners/preservatives, chemicals found in our cleaning products, hair care products, make-up, and other chemicals that leach into our food from packaging, etc…
ADDITIONAL BENEFITS OF LEUCINE
