Shaklee Sports Nutrition

Before, During, and After Exercise


Shaklee Performance is clinically proven to hydrate better than water. Plus, Performance has more electrolytes and provides more energy than the leading hydration drink. It contains six hydrating electrolytes, including calcium and magnesium. (Note: Gatorade label only lists sodium and potassium) Shaklee's proprietary OPTI-LYTE™ electrolyte blend plus our unique mix of carbohydrates delivers both instant and sustained energy and supports optimal hydration. Performance contains 3 types of carbohydrates: glucose polymer, fructose, and glucose-that release at 3 different times to provide sustained energy.  This is a much better way to obtain energy than other drinks that are made with just glucose or sucrose (table sugar-cheap and nutrient-depleting).  The glucose polymers make the difference.  They're compound chains of 5 sugar molecules, all joined together, and are less sweet and more effective than sucrose.  The polymers are small enough and dilute enough to pass through the stomach rapidly, providing the body with much-needed immediate fluid and energy.

In addition, fructose is nearly four times as efficient at restoring liver glycogen than other sugars.


Clinically Proven

We call it Performance for good reason. Clinical tests with high-level athletes show that Shaklee Performance minimizes fluid loss for enhanced hydration, maintains blood-glucose levels to sustain intense energy output and to increase stamina, and increases endurance for better athletic performance.


It does NOT contain artificial sweeteners (including sucralose and aspartame), artificial flavors, or synthetic colorants or stabilizers (including yellow #5, yellow #6, blue #1, red #40, brominated vegetable oil, or glycerol ester of wood rosin - READ YOUR LABELS!)  Formulated by request to be the only fuel for the athlete who used it to break the record for human-powered flight in the Daedelus Project.  Those involved in the project tried all the other available sport drinks and found that they did not produce the results they needed, so they came to Shaklee and asked them to make one for them.  Fueled by Shaklee Performance, the "pilot" kept the ultralight aircraft in the air, by "cycling," for 72 miles-the energy equivalent of running 3 marathons back to back to back without stopping!  Perhaps one of the reasons they came to Shaklee was that NASA had asked them to formulate an ulta-hydrating drink for the astronauts.  Before Shaklee formulated Astro-Ade for them, they used to pass out from dehydration during re-entry to the earth's atmosphere and would feel lousy for days.  NASA knew who to come to for the solution!


Recently, Griffin tested for his Black Belt in karate.  The test was non stop with only 3 minute breaks, and lasted for over 5.5 hours.  Griffin stayed hydrated with Performance, and kept his energy up with the Energy Chews.  He did hit the wall as expected at about hour 4, but bounced back really well to finish off strong.  


Congratulations Griffin, and thanks Shaklee!!!

Run Better, Hurt Less

A couple of years ago I doing a long weekend run and just plain ran out of gas. I walked the final 2 miles home and began to rethink my nutritional support. I thought I had a good diet--enough to support my active lifestyle, but I was missing a few key ingredients. I was only hydrating with water for runs under 12 miles and was not using a recovery drink other than doing my daily soy protein shake. I decided to try the Shaklee Performance prior to my runs and Physique after my runs to see if I saw a difference. The contrast could not have been more stark. My energy level during long runs was noticeable on the first try and I was no longer forced to take as much time between runs to recover. The most amazing thing was that post-run soreness has become a thing of the past. I can not say enough about how good these 2 products are. My husband is a mountain biker and he can't believe how, after getting beat up on a tough trail, soreness is non-existent in the days to follow.

 Performance and Physique for Having a Baby

Delivering a baby is certainly a workout.  We've had many moms who were really helped with hydration and endurance by using Performance sports drink.  And using Physique as soon as possible after delivery can really help with soreness and recovery.  Plus, we've been told, a lot of times the hospital just can't/doesn't bring food fast enough.  Physique is healthier and more useful anyway.  We've had moms report that, as they drank the Physique, it felt like their bodies were saying, "Aaaahhh... THANK YOU!"


Why It's Good to Keep Performance Around 

Even if You're Not an Olympian

You don't have to be a serious athlete to use these products. Weekend warriors and normal people doing normal workouts can also benefit. Plus, Performance drink is great for gardening or yard work on a hot day or even as a refreshing drink instead of sugar laden or artificially sweetened and/or colored drinks. If you are sweating, Performance is a great option.


A second, and also very valuable use, for Performance is when you are sick and water just does not feel right. Performance drink does, and can, help calm nausea and help rehydrate you better than water. This helps you avoid becoming dehydrated, which is easy to do when you have been vomiting or have diarrhea, both can throw off your electrolytes.


Performance Keeps an Old Guy Going

I love volleyball-especially outdoor volleyball. The sweating, the diving in the dirt and rolling in the grass-it's one of life's great pleasures. A few years ago, I was spending a day with friends, and volleyball figured into a large portion of the day. After several hours of play, I was working on getting another game going, and one of the fit young 20-somethings in the group said, "I'm really ashamed-I have less energy than the old guy." While I wasn't big on the "old guy" part of the comment, it made very clear the advantage of drinking Performance (which he wasn't doing-hah!).
