Astronauts, Aviators and American Heroes Captain Mark Kelly and Captain Scott Kelly are Keynote Speakers at “Shaklee Live” in Orlando, Florida

Astronauts, aviators and American heroes Captain Mark Kelly and Captain Scott Kelly (also identical twin brothers) were the Keynote Speakers at Shaklee Live 2016 – an annual Conference hosted by Shaklee CEO and Chairman,Roger Barnett and attended by thousands of Shaklee Distributors from all over the country. Shaklee Live celebrated 60 years of creating healthier more rewarding lives August 3-7, 2016 in Orlando, Florida.

“I am happy to announce the attendance of Captain Mark Kelly and Captain Scott Kelly at this year’s Shaklee Live 2016 event in Orlando, Florida,” stated Roger Barnett, Shaklee CEO and Chairman.  “These astronauts are friends in addition to aviators and American heroes who personify leadership and courage.  It was a great honor to welcome them as our Keynote Speakers at this year’s event.”

Being identical twins is rare, but both being astronauts is something else entirely. A former U.S. Navy Captain, Mark Kelly was aboard the last planned flight of space shuttle Endeavor, and was part of many other missions in the 1990s and 2000s. His brother Scott Kelly recently concluded his historical year in space mission aboard the International Space Station. While addressing a number of topics dealing with leadership, communication, innovation and teamwork, the Kelly brothers also speak on the importance of space exploration, lessons learned and how this mission will directly impact our pursuit of one day putting a man on Mars.

Shaklee and NASA have been working together for more than two decades since NASA tapped Shaklee as a partner to help every astronaut return to earth safely by providing a solution to address General Re-entry Syndrome (GRS) which includes symptoms of vertigo, fatigue, gastrointestinal discomfort, disequilibrium and general debilitation occurring during reentry to earth’s atmosphere and immediately after landing. Shaklee scientists specifically designed AstroAde, a special rehydration product in conjunction with NASA scientists, to combat this unique set of challenges facing the shuttle astronauts.  Shaklee products have been on every NASA mission since 1993.

“Having just returned to Planet Earth after a year in Space, I can say first-hand it is one of the most arduous physical experiences the human body can endure,” explained Captain Scott Kelly. “NASA scientists and my medical team helped me come up with a daily regimen to ensure I maintained my health.”

“One thing we’ve come to understand is that we need to take better care of our planet.  We love that Shaklee as a company is really focused on the environment,” explained Captain Mark Kelly.
