Ice Bucket Challenge Dumps Millions into ALS Fight

Thanks to the power of social media, a freezing-cold fundraiser and awareness campaign is now completely on fire.

The Ice Bucket Challenge encourages people to dump ice water on their heads and donate money to spread the awareness and aid in the research of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a progressive neurodegenerative disease more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

To put it plainly, the challenge successfully combines the elements of a silly dare and an extremely worthy cause. In a matter of weeks, 1.7 million challengers have donated nearly $80 million to the ALS Association (link to alsa.org), a national non-profit dedicated to ALS awareness, care service and research.

The challenge has become a viral online phenomenon as supporters have used social media both to share their frigid experiences and enlist people they know to do the same. One challenger becomes three, three become nine, and so on.

Because of its immense online presence, millions of people—the general public and celebrities alike—have heeded the call either to dump ice water on their heads or open up their wallets. Many have elected to do both. As the Ice Bucket Challenge continues to spread, there is no telling how much money it will raise.

According to the ALS Association, the disease attacks nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, resulting in a loss of voluntary muscle control and movement, and, in many cases, total paralysis. On average, people live two to five years after being diagnosed with ALS, and over 5,600 people are diagnosed every year.
Melaleuca supports the ALS Association and its mission to treat and cure ALS.

The Vitality Pack® with Oligo®

Vitality Pack Powered by Oligo

Vitality Pack Powered by Oligo

THE VITALITY PACK PROVIDES RESEARCH-RECOMMENDED LEVELS of key nutrients customized for your age and gender. It’s also the only multivitamin powered by our patented Oligo mineral delivery technology. Only Oligo helps keep nutrients in a form your body can more easily absorb. As a result, you get a lifetime of better health and wellness.

Not all minerals are equal

The mineral forms found in traditional multivitamins (gluconates, oxides, sulfates, etc.) dissolve easily in the acidic environment of the stomach, but as they pass into the small intestine where absorption takes place, they crystallize (or solidify), making them very difficult, if not impossible, to absorb–drastically reducing their benefit to the body.

Superior absorption

Oligo was created to be Just Like Nature.® Only Oligo binds minerals to organic compounds (amino acids and oligofructose) to mirror the way they are found in fruits, vegetables, and other whole foods to maximize solubility. In fact, Oligo minerals are scientifically proven to provide up to 4 times greater absorption than the minerals found in leading brands.*†

Maximum antioxidant protection

Minerals in traditional supplements can trigger massive free radical activity during digestion. These free radicals can actually cancel out the benefits of antioxidants like vitamins C and E. Oligo minerals are different. Oligo reduces free radical activity, thereby protecting critical antioxidants up to 5 times better than the leading brands.† It also extends that free radical protection throughout the entire body!

Patented Mineral delivery technology

In study after study, science has shown there is no other mineral technology that compares to Oligo. And thanks to patent no. 8,273,393, Melaleuca is the only place you’ll find Oligo.

4x Greater Absorption

5x more antioxidant protection


Oligo inhibits the free radical activity that traditional mineral forms cause. This protects the potency of your antioxidants and prevents free radicals from spreading throughout your body.

Oligo keeps minerals up to 10-times more soluble during digestion–making them much easier for the body to absorb.

Traditional mineral forms crystallize when they reach the small intestine, making them very difficult for the body to absorb.

GC Control™

Great at snack time or with a sensible meal, GC Control is powerful blood sugar metabolism support disguised as a delicious protein and fiber-filled shake. Clinically tested GC Control provides natural blood sugar and weight support to help control carbohydrate and sugar cravings and deliver metabolism and energy support for healthy individuals.

Stop the carb cravings

The average American consumes the equivalent of up to a pound of sugar every two days! Carb-heavy, sugar-loaded foods can cause your blood sugar to spike, sapping your energy and triggering fat storage. GC Control helps limit those carb cravings and puts you back in control.

Support healthy blood sugar from all angles

A proper diet that promotes healthy blood sugar metabolism can help your body use fat instead of storing it. If you want
to actively support blood sugar already in a healthy range,
you need to:

  • Support healthy blood sugar levels
  • Maintain healthy insulin response
  • Optimize blood sugar and carbohydrate metabolism

The one-of-a-kind GC Control technology helps
address all three factors by using the power of Oligo,
plus a proprietary blend of specially formulated ingredients–backed by clinical research.

†Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. A daily dose of Vitality Coldwater Omega-3 supplies 930 mg of EPA and DHA.

Vitality Coldwater Omega-3 delivers 930 mg of DHA and EPA in two softgels. The fish oil in Vitality Coldwater Omega-3 is the highest quality on the market. It is carefully selected from coldwater fish, and is molecularly distilled, purified, and inspected in the U.S.A. to guarantee not to contain any no contaminants or allergens.

A must for a vibrant mind and body*

Omega-3s are a group of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids that can’t be produced by the body and must be obtained through diet. The two most beneficial omega-3s are DHA and EPA. The problem is most adults don’t eat enough of the right types of food to get the recommended amounts of omega-3s. Vitality Coldwater Omega-3 helps you get the optimal daily level of omega-3s.

Research has shown that omega-3s are essential at every stage of development, from prenatal health to childhood to old age. They are critical to multiple areas of health, from brain development and mental function to heart health, joint health and more.*

Natural brain booster

Omega-3 fatty acids are the primary structural component of the
human brain. Omega-3s have been shown to help:

  • Support proper brain function*
  • Support memory and learning*
  • Support focus and attention*
  • Slow the progression of age-related memory loss*

Supercharged heart guard

The American Heart Association recommends that healthy adults consume 1,000 mg of EPA & DHA per day and that people trying to lower their triglyceride levels should take 2,000–4,000 mg per day
from all sources. Getting the recommended dose of omega-3s:

  • May reduce the risk of heart disease †
  • Helps maintain healthy triglyceride levels in healthy individuals
  • Supports normal inflammatory levels in healthy individuals*

Full-body benefits

An overwhelming number of studies over the past 10 years have revealed that omega-3s are responsible for a whole host of benefits throughout the entire body. DHA & EPA consumption during pregnancy promotes the healthy development of the fetal brain, eyes and nervous system.* Omega-3s have also been shown to help:

  • Promote healthy eyes and vision*
  • Promote joint mobility and flexibility*
