Steve Weiler, a student at Washington State University, was a competitive and dedicated triathlete. Two years of competition had Steve thinking about a professional athletic career. But last August, while he was training on his bike, Steve was hit by a truck.
“My orthopedic surgeon found I had a broken tibial plateau and severe damage to the cartilage in my leg,” says Steve. “He told me my athletic career was over, that in two years I’d have to deal with arthritis and that I might not be able to walk!”
After six weeks on crutches, Steve asked his doctor if he could try biking again. “When I got back on my bike in December, I began using Reliv’s Arthaffect®,” explains Steve. “After a two-hour-plus ride, I’d be pretty sore, but Arthaffect helped me recover quickly and reduced the inflammation, soreness and pain in my knee. It allows me to train harder and recover faster.
“Now I’m also using Innergize!® — up to three bottles on long rides — and it keeps my energy levels high,” he adds. “I’m back on the cycling team at Washington State and finished seventh in my last competition. I thank Reliv for ArthAffect and Innergize! not only help with my racing, but in my life every single day.”
