Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee founded Shaklee Corporation in 1956. Dr. Shaklee was a chiropractor who went to school with the "father" of chiropractic, B.J. Palmer. Dr. Shaklee held degrees in nutrition, biochemistry, philosophy, and divinity. He practiced chiropractic until he was 65 years old when he launched Shaklee Corporation. He based his company on the Golden Rule and Products made in Harmony with Nature.

Shaklee is recognized as a health-industry leader in the manufacture of quality nutritional products. Our commitment to ensure the safety and good health of those who use our food supplements is something we feel very strongly about.
The basis of our success has been our rigorous scientific approach to the formulation of our products. Over the years, we have conducted numerous clinical studies on our products, many of which have appeared in prestigious scientific journals, such as The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, American Journal of Cardiology, Journal of the American Medical Association and Journal of the American College of Nutrition. Indeed, a number of the studies were conducted in association with major universities such as Harvard, Stanford, and the University of Texas, as well as NASA. The research papers are peer-reviewed by experts who judge it for scientific worthiness. Once the peer-review process has been completed, the study is then accepted for publication.
Shaklee is among the very few manufacturers who have its own manufacturing facility and who regularly test their products for safety and efficacy with the consumer in mind.
The bottom line for Shaklee is that we are committed to making the best quality nutritional products that are safe, effective and can be depended upon, as we tested them for active ingredients. The following examples show the Shaklee Difference and include some of our own Quality Control Standards.
