I have been using several of Shaklee's Soy Protein products since 2004 and I will not be without them! I am hypoglycemic, so I have to be careful not to eat too many carbohydrates without a balance of protein. I have in the past tried to get by eating a bowl of cereal or sweet roll for breakfast, only to find that I become shaky and have fainted a time or two. Not fun.
When Denise introduced me to the Energizing Soy Protein and Instant Soy Protein in 2004, I knew I had the perfect solution to my breakfast needs. Then, in 2006, Shaklee introduced the Cinch Shakes, which are full meal replacement shakes. Now I use a combination of Cinch Shakes and Instant Soy Protein for breakfast and often for dinner when I have had a late lunch. Depending on how I choose to use the shakes, I get between 16 and 24 grams of Soy Protein when mixed with water with each meal. If I use milk or Soy Milk, then the protein amount increases. Cinch Shakes also provide a complement of vitamins and minerals as well as Leucine which is an amino acid that helps you maintain muscle mass, and therefore keeps your metabolism higher.
During the course of the day, I often use the Shaklee Cinch Snack Bars for an afternoon snack. The Lemon-Cranberry Snack Bars contain 10 grams of protein, taste delicious and are a perfect mid-afternoon snack. When I travel or have business appointments scheduled at odd times, I use Shaklee Blueberry Almond Crisp Meal-In-A-Bar as a meal replacement on the go! They provide 20 grams of protein, and are low glycemic like the other Cinch products.
using the Shaklee Soy Protein, I am healthier, have a great start to my
day, get extra vitamins, and feel energetic and focused. I would recommend all of Shaklee's Soy Protein products for all ages. Not only do they taste great, but you will feel great too.

For over 50 years, Shaklee has been a strong proponent of soy protein for its health promoting qualities. Soybeans contain all the amino acids essential to human health and soy protein products are a healthy alternative to other protein foods that are high in saturated fat and cholesterol. When viewed in the context of the body of literature on soy, the majority of scientific data strongly supports the value of soy protein as part of a healthy diet for heart health, breast and prostate health, bone health and for managing menopausal symptoms.
There is new research evidence for the numerous health benefits of soy – how a daily moderate intake of soy can protect against heart disease and stroke, may help prevent certain types of cancer, potentially alleviate menopause symptoms, support bone health and possibly even exert favorable effects on aging skin.
Some soy protein products are alcohol-processed, which removes isoflavones. Shaklee's Soy Protein is waterwashed to retain naturally occurring isoflavones such as genistein and daidzein. Shaklee uses only non-genetically modified (GMO) soy protein certified through an Identity Preservation Program (IPP). This program assures that the soy we use is tightly monitored and controlled from planting and harvesting to processing.
Trust Shaklee for the best in Soy Protein for your health!
