About Me and MWIC

David Magallanes

I’m David Magallanes (pronounced mah-gah-YA-nes), the founder of Magallanes Wellness Information Center (MWIC). Here I am enjoying the view from atop Santa Cruz Island, one of the Channel Islands of Southern California. In the distance, you can see the coast of Ventura County, where I live.

I appreciate your visit to my website. Here you will find a wellness blog and a wellness store. I am a health enthusiast who believes in sharing resources with those, possibly like you, who are interested in scientifically reliable information regarding wellness.

After retiring from a career in higher education, I decided to set up my own online business, the Magallanes Wellness Information Center (MWIC).

The purpose of this site is to provide you with wellness information from credible sources, including the Shaklee Corporation, one of the world’s leaders in nutrition and wellness. At MWIC you will have access to world-class wellness products that are developed, manufactured, distributed, and 100% guaranteed (or your money back) by Shaklee.

Likewise, if you are interested in establishing your own Shaklee Distributorship as an Ambassador, you have the ability to sign up as such through the MWIC website.

Shaklee provides an impressive amount of information related to its products. You can order these products online, directly and conveniently, from my personal Shaklee website at the lowest possible price (explained on the Home Page).

I am one of the Shaklee Corporation’s thousands of Wellness Ambassadors throughout the world serving people like you who want reliable information on good nutrition and health. I have much confidence in the ability of Shaklee products to help you achieve better health. I’ve enjoyed the benefits of consuming and using them over the past 40+ years and consider myself to be in excellent health.

Shaklee is headquartered in Pleasanton, California (in the northern part of the state) and has been in business as a manufacturer of clinically-tested nutritional supplements and personal care products as well as concentrated, effective, and extremely cost-effective nontoxic cleaners for the home.

Shaklee’s first multivitamin supplement was formulated in 1915, so Shaklee vitamins have been used for over 100 years. Shaklee is one of the world’s leaders in natural nutrition.

Over 60 years ago, the founder of Shaklee, Dr. Forrest Shaklee, insisted that his business not hire third-party marketers and advertisers. He envisioned a business model that allowed everyday people to take on roles as marketers and advertisers and be paid accordingly.

Dr. Shaklee’s reasoning was, “Why pay a high-powered sales conglomerate when average people can accomplish the same job by sharing Shaklee products and its business opportunity by word of mouth with others?”

The good doctor was way ahead of his time, developing a viral marketing system that proved to be astoundingly successful for the corporation as well as for its ambassadors. These distributors enthusiastically share the good news about physical and/or financial health, depending on what an interested person may be seeking for themselves.

Disclaimer: MWIC is a Shaklee Ambassadorship (often referred to as a “Distributorship”). Any Shaklee products purchased through this MWIC site contribute to its sales volume. Depending on the MWIC’s level of sales volume in a given month, Shaklee pays a percentage of that figure to this distributorship (i.e., to me).

Anyone who purchases Shaklee products is not paying “extra” so that Shaklee can pay the distributorships that supply the products. These payments to distributors are a part of Shaklee’s marketing budget, which every manufacturer must have as part of the cost of doing business. We Shaklee Ambassadors (distributors) are the advertising and marketing arm of the Shaklee Corporation and are paid accordingly by Shaklee.

Some fun facts about me…
  • I have three handsome grandsons, sons of my daughter who teaches kindergarten.
  • I make it a point to enjoy daily walks and runs along the beach or around the local marinas.
  • I’m very conscious of health, nutrition, and diet. Because of this, I like to make meals that are compatible with the Mediterranean diet.
