ab01e36a-378c-4b5d-bc28-cbaceb76d8a7

Bernard Lagat uses many of Melaleuca’s products including the Peak Performance Pack. Bernard just became the oldest long-distance runner in history to qualify for U.S. Olympic Team. At 41 years old, his record-breaking performances show no sign of slowing down. In April, Bernard lowered his own World Masters Record for the road 5,000 meters. Then in May, Bernard blazed past competitors in the 10,000 meters to win the Patyon Jordan Invitational, setting a new World Masters Record in the process. His blistering pace continues in July, as he finished first in his heat at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials and went into the finals with the fifth-fastest qualifying time.

“After Melaleuca Convention 2015, I decided to start taking the Peak Performance Pack,” Bernard says. “I’m getting older, and I wanted to get that energy back. Plus, it’s really important for me to keep my nutrition balanced. I need that in my job to train well, be strong, and stay injury-free.”

Take a look at Bernard’s records over the years:

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 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.*

That’s why Simply Fit Granola contains only wholesome ingredients and no cholesterol, trans fats, or artificial flavors or sweeteners. And because it’s baked to perfection and packaged fresh, you can taste the crisp, old-fashioned goodness in every bite.

It’s simple, really. For Simply Fit, we select the right combinations of wholesome ingredients for better flavors and healthier benefits. Whole oats, fiber, protein, and ALA omega-3s from flax—that’s what we put in. It helps create lasting satisfaction, and it’s a difference you can taste right away.

New Simply Fit Granola is simply better for you. So, go on. Open the bag. One taste and you’ll love it!

Nothing Beats Melaleuca Products…or Melaleuca Customers

480 Really Good Reasons why Melaleuca is Growing

Melaleuca continues to experience massive growth. 2016 is shaping up to be another record-breaking year. We’re absolutely thrilled that customers around the world are discovering Melaleuca at a meteoric rate.

Melaleuca is no stranger to explosive growth. We opened our doors in 1985 with just eight wellness products (and only seven employees!), but our status as a tiny startup in rural Idaho was short-lived.

Beginning in 1990, Melaleuca made Inc. 500’s list of the fastest growing privately held companies in the U.S.—for five consecutive years. Today, we do business in 18 countries around the world, and we’re now experiencing the fastest growth in our 30-year history.

So why is The Wellness Company doing so well?

There could be a thousand reasons, but two major factors clearly stand out: Simply put, Melaleuca has the best products in the world and the best customers.

Superior Products

Want a good reason why Melaleuca is growing so rapidly? We’ll give you at least 480 of them.

Two of Melaleuca’s founding axioms are “to provide exceptional products at reasonable prices” and “to enhance the lives of those we touch, by helping people reach their goals.” As we developed each of our 480+ products, we did so with the mission of enhancing lives in mind. Our products are effective and affordable. If a product doesn’t enhance lives, we don’t make it, and we don’t sell it.

Product innovation is a hallmark of Melaleuca. We place a huge premium on research and development. If we didn’t, we wouldn’t be able to deliver the very best products—products that bring together the best of science and nature.

Our numerous patents, the development of Oligofructose Complex®, and the profound results of the Freiburg Study are just a few examples of our unwavering commitment to scientific research. We invest in research because we want our customers to have an incomparable experience with our products.

When you take the Peak Performance Pack, brew a fresh cup of Mountain Cabin™ Premium Coffee, clean your toilet with non-toxic Safe & Mighty™ Toilet Bowl Cleaner, fill your home with the aroma of PURE™ Essential Oils, or experience any one of our 480+ products, we want—and fully expect—those products to enhance your life.

Smart, Loyal Customers
We truly believe Melaleuca customers are smarter and better educated than the average grocery store customer. Our customers pay attention to labels and ingredients. They’re concerned about the health and well being of their families, and they’re careful about what they bring into their homes. They shop with us because they know Melaleuca products will enhance their lives.

If there’s one refrain we hear time and again when customers talk about Melaleuca, it’s this: “I love the products!” Our customer loyalty is second to none.

In fact, we have an average 96% month-to-month reorder rate. We hang our hats on that number because it shows our customers not only love Melaleuca products, but they want to keep using the products month after month and year after year.

As a word-of-mouth business, we rely completely on our customers recommending Melaleuca products to people they know. It’s because of the incredible product experiences our customers have shared with their friends and family that Melaleuca has grown into a worldwide powerhouse.

Whether you’ve been a Melaleuca customer for 30 years or 30 days, thank you for shopping with us. And if you’ve ever shared Melaleuca with someone you know, thank you for referring them. Our success as a company is because of you!
