Melaleuca’s Own McCaughey Septuplets Graduate High School, Look to Bright Future

McCaughey Family septuplets

Mother of first surviving set of septuplets credits Melaleuca supplements for the health of her babies.

A little more than 18 years ago, Bobbi McCaughey awaited the birth of her babies. Seven of them, to be exact. Contrary to prevailing medical advice, Bobbi and her husband Kenny relied on their faith and opted to not terminate any of the fetuses. Choosing this path meant she needed to get the very best nutrition possible if she had any chance of successful childbirth. With the help of a dear friend, she turned to Melaleuca.

“Our friends Bob and Genni Brown had been longtime users of Melaleuca products. And Genni, especially, just swore by the Vitality Pack® because of her experience with it,” Bobbi says.

Some days, it was all she could do just to get her Melaleuca multivitamin-mineral down. But she did. For her babies.

As babies develop during a pregnancy, they are totally dependent on their mother for the nutrition they need to grow and prosper. For Bobbi, the importance of getting the right nutrition was multiplied by seven. Each little body relied on her to provide it with the nourishment it needed to form into a healthy child. A problem complicated by the fact that some days, Bobbi could hardly keep anything down…except her Vitality for Life® supplements.

Before the McCaugheys, no single woman had ever successfully supported the nutritional needs of herself and seven fetuses. On November 19, 1997, Bobbi gave birth to the first set of septuplets in history to survive infancy.

Bobbi’s doctors attributed this amazing, first-ever accomplishment, to the nutrition Bobbi provided her babies by taking Melaleuca’s Vitality Pack.

“I think the most amazing part of it was not so much that we carried them to 30 weeks and that they were all doing well,” Bobbi says. “All of our kids were in the normal range for birth weight for their gestation, which they shouldn’t have been according to the doctors. There’s at least a couple of reasons why they were so healthy. Number one, I know that God caused it to be that way. And, number two, I knew that it had to be in part because I used the Vitality Pack through the majority of the pregnancy. And so I didn’t have to worry that I couldn’t eat enough during the day. I knew that I was still getting the vitamins and minerals I needed and, most importantly, that the babies needed. And to be able to get all the way through the pregnancy with almost zero complications, have a birth with zero complications, and have hardly any complications after birth with the kids, was just a miracle.”

Not only did they survive, this Melaleuca family continues to thrive. Over the years, they have kept their home clean with EcoSense® products, washed their clothes with MelaPower®, snacked on Simply Fit™ Popcorn and Bars, enjoyed Melaleuca Bath & Body products, used their fair share of MelaGel® on scraped knees, and, of course, continued to take Melaleuca nutritional supplements. And now that they’re all grown up, they take the Peak Performance Pack®.

On May 22, 2016, all seven of the kids walked the stage and graduated from Carlisle High School in their hometown of Carlisle, Iowa. From here, the future for these seven siblings is filled with possibilities.

According to Bobbi, Kenny Jr. was always on the go as a child. Today, he’s looking forward to a career in construction.

Brandon has always had a fascination with the military and spent his childhood in camouflage. He has enlisted in the Army and starts basic training on June 1.

Nathan, who has always loved superheroes, has a love for acting and theater.

Joel is known for his sense of humor.

Kelsey, who Bobbi used to describe as her tomboy, has always been the music lover. She performs in a choir group and wants to pursue a career in music. She shares this love for music with her sister, Alexis, who was on the Carlisle High School cheerleading squad her senior year.

Natalie, Joel, and Nathan have plans to attend college out of state.

Alexis and Natalie were part of the National Honor Society, graduating in the top 15 percent of their class.

Please join us in congratulating Kenny, Alexis, Natalie, Kelsey, Nathan, Brandon, and Joel and the entire McCaughey family for reaching the important milestone of graduating from Carlisle High School. Here’s to a bright and healthy future!

Melaleuca Convention 2016 Gala

Every year, Melaleuca Convention is capped off by the Gala Awards Banquet. It is easily the biggest night of the year at Melaleuca, and this year we’re live streaming the event for the first time ever.

The live stream includes pre-recorded interviews and highlights from all three days of Convention; a look inside the Melaleuca Product Hall, including the amazing new products that were launched Day 1 of Convention; pre-Gala “red carpet” interviews; and complete live coverage of the Gala.

Watch as Melaleuca CEO Frank VanderSloot sits down for a one-on-one interview to discuss Melaleuca’s growth. “A hundred-and-fifty-five-thousand new households joined us just last month,” Frank says. “We’re growing like a rocket ship.”

In the interview, Frank also talks about the reason Melaleuca holds an annual Convention. It’s all about creating an environment where people can change their lives, he says. “This is a forum where people can think deeply about where they are in life, be thinking deeply about what life is about, learn how to take charge of their own lives, and hopefully makes some decisions that they are going to do exactly that,” Frank says. “A lot of people go forward from this point—from Convention—and change their life.”

East Idaho News’ Nate Eaton also interviewed several others, including Melaleuca President McKay Christensen, Melaleuca Marketing Executives and customers, and singer and The Voice contestant Brian Nhira. Each of these interviews is included in the Gala live stream video.

For over 30 years, Melaleuca has been manufacturing and selling quality consumable products including vitamins and supplements, health foods and fitness products, non-toxic, environmentally friendly and super-concentrated household cleaners, and more. These wellness products are made with the finest ingredients and a balance of science and nature to help customers live longer, healthier, more vibrant lives. Since the beginning, Melaleuca’s mission has been “Enhancing the lives of those we touch by helping people reach their goals.”

Melaleuca Convention 2016 – Day 2

Melaleuca Introduces New Good Zymes™ Multi-Enzyme Digestive Aid

good zymes product

You fuel your body with food, but bodies don’t absorb food—they absorb nutrients. The digestive process is essential to breaking down food and utilizing its nutrients, but when that process isn’t working smoothly, not only can you experience digestive discomfort that can keep you away from your favorite foods, you can also miss out on essential nutrition.*

That’s where digestive enzymes come in—the key component to digestion. Enzymes break down food into small micronutrients that your body can use.
An imbalance of digestive enzymes can cause stomach pains, diarrhea, cramping, bloating, intestinal gas, belching, and indigestion. No wonder those who struggle with these digestive issues would rather avoid entire food groups or certain social situations with a limited menu. It’s just not worth the pain and embarrassment. To add insult to injury, when foods aren’t digested properly, not only can you experience discomfort, you can also miss out on essential nutrition.

New Good Zymes Multi-Enzyme Digestive Aid is designed to mimic your body’s natural digestive processes to help prevent uncomfortable and embarrassing gastrointestinal symptoms. Unlike other brands that only focus on relieving symptoms caused by a single food—like legumes or dairy—Good Zymes has a comprehensive formula to help digest all food types, giving you comfort no matter what’s on the menu.

  1. The Digestion Process
    Digestion starts as you chew your food, and saliva, which contains amylase, begins to break down carbohydrates.
  2. Once your food reaches the stomach, protease enzymes tackle proteins. From there, food passes into the small intestine where a variety of enzymes break down dairy lactase, gluten, plant fibers, proteins, fruit pectin, carbohydrates, and many kinds of sugars.
  3. In the small intestine, micronutrients are absorbed into your bloodstream.

With a proprietary blend of 18 enzymes, Good Zymes helps:

  • Break down and digest dairy, fats, protein, and fiber*
  • Increase nutrient availability during digestion*
  • Relieve and prevent occasional gas, bloating, and indigestion*

If you experience any of these common digestive issues, Good Zymes can help:

  • Indigestion
  • Oily or loose stool after eating certain types of food
  • Acidic belching
  • Stomach cramping
  • Bloating
  • Gas
  • The feeling of food sitting like a rock in your stomach*

Specially designed to work with FiberWise and Florify, Good Zymes helps you achieve complete digestive health.*
