Melaleuca Product Stories
Upon enrolling with Melaleuca, I ordered the VITALITY PACK with my initial order, but discontinued taking it due to, what I perceived as, the expense.  I wasn’t really paying attention to my health at the time and decided to sacrifice them for cleaning/beauty supplies. Unfortunately (but in retrospect fortunately), I received a Back Up Order last month and the vitamins were included, so I started taking them again. Two days later I felt more energetic, less lethargic, well-rested and even happier! I fall asleep faster and wake easier. It is remarkable. I haven’t changed anything else in my daily routine other than taking the vitamins. The biggest difference for me is that I don’t have the 4pm slump anymore. I used to drive home to get the kids and begin the hectic routine of dinner, evening activities, baths, etc. and would feel overwhelmed to have to do all of this with such low energy.  For the past few days, I have not experienced this lethargic period at all! I am amazed. T.A.- New York

I have been taking medication for several years now for high cholesterol and very high triglycerides.  Unfortunately the prescription prices kept going up and I could not afford to keep taking the medication.  Last January I opened an account with Melaleuca and started taking the vitamins.  At my doctor visit in January my triglycerides were 400!  So I became aggressive and added the COLD WATER OMEGA-3 capsules and I switched to the VITALITY 6 HEART HEALTH Packs.  I added regular exercise, continued with a healthy diet and started drinking the ATTAIN SHAKES to lose some weight.  On my May visit to the doctor, my triglycerides were down to 325.  The LIQUID OMEGA-3’s came out so I added them also.  I went back in August and my triglycerides were down to 165! The doctor said he wanted to see them below 100, but no prescription drugs for now! How amazing our products are! Karen R.

Product Highlight
The detergents found in many common household cleaners have the potential to disrupt the health of rivers and lakes across the globe.  With so many cleaners containing so many dangerous chemicals, DIAMOND BRITE’S all-natural ingredients are a breath of fresh air. Its super-concentrated formula delivers four times the cleaning power while helping to protect your family, home and the environment.

The Problem with Dishwasher Detergents
Most leading dishwasher detergents contain two harmful ingredients- phosphates and chlorine bleach.

  • Phosphates- Phosphates are inexpensive water-softening agents, but the environment can pay a heavy price. Phosphorus is an essential element in the metabolic activities of plants and animals.  It’s found in natural waterways in the form of phosphates. Unfortunately, large amounts of phosphates also enter our lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams through the many detergents that we wash down our sinks, dishwashers, and washing machines.  Just one 45 ounce bottle of the leading automatic dishwasher detergent has enough phosphates to produce 200 pounds of algae.  Too much algae has dire effects on the environment.  The overgrowth of algae on the surface reduces the penetration of light which eventually leads to a lowering of oxygen in the water.  This results in the death of fish which disrupts the entire aquatic ecosystem.

  • Chlorine –Many dishwasher detergents use chlorine bleach as a relatively cheap way to clean dishes. But as the detergent mixes with hot water, toxic volatized chlorine fumes can be created, which may then be released into the air as a steamy mist.  Common symptoms from breathing chlorine fumes include headaches, fatigue, burning eyes, and respiratory irritation.

  • Alkaline- High alkaline formulas can burn skin, mouth and eyes.  The law requires prominent warnings and child-resistant caps on high alkaline formulas. The high alkaline in chlorine can actually etch dishes and “cloud” glassware.  DIAMOND BRITE has a pH nearly identical to water, so it doesn’t require a child resistant cap and is gentler on your dishes and dishwasher.

An Earth-Conscious Solution
Why do so many detergent manufactures use ingredients like phosphates and chlorine?  Because they are cheap and effective.  It took years of research and hundreds of formulations to discover a natural alternative, but Melaleuca has it- DIAMOND BRITE.  Instead of relying on phosphates and chlorine to clean dishes, DIAMOND BRITE uses a synergistic combination of natural water softeners, natural enzymes and a breakthrough cleansing formula called Opti-Shine to leave dishes sparkling clean.

Why isn’t the bottle bigger?
DIAMOND BRITE is super-concentrated so it can clean up to three times as many loads as the leading detergent.  This reduces the impact on recycling and landfills. So DIAMOND BRITE can not only keep your dishes cleaner, but also the environment healthier. DIAMOND BRITE carries a patent because the U.S. Patent Office recognizes it as truly unique.

Awesome Alternatives
Did you know you can use…
MELAMAGIC and SOL-U-MEL to easily clean oily car or bike parts.   Mix 4 ounces MELAMAGIC and 1 capful of SOL-U-MEL in a 16 ounce bottle of water.  Generously spray the surfaces and wipe away the oil.

MELASOFT fabric softener to control static hair.  Spray some diluted MELASOFT liquid fabric softener on your hairbrush or comb.  It works wonders to calm a bad hair day.

Melaleuca- Above and Beyond
Melaleuca sells enough MELAPOWER LAUNDRY DETERGENT to do 175 million loads of laundry in a year.  MELAPOWER does not have any bleach, phosphates or harsh chemicals in it.

Melaleuca introduced SOL-U-MEL in 1986.  Back then a 16 oz. bottle cost $22.95.  In 2013 that same bottle costs $19.99!   What company do you know has actually lowered the cost of one of its most popular products!  Melaleuca is able to control their costs because they research, develop and manufacture all their own products. They do not distribute through stores and they rely completely on word-of-mouth referrals from satisfied customers for their advertising.
