How do you feel today? Is your answer just… OK? You’re not sneezing or coughing. You’re not in pain. You’re just… there. Wouldn’t you rather answer an enthusiastic, “I feel great!?” What is the State of YOU?
Feeling energized and vibrant comes from being proactive with your health. A nutritious diet is the cornerstone of good health. Without adequate vitamins and minerals, you may feel sluggish and foggy. Your immune system also takes a hit so you’re more prone to getting sick.
Your energy level is a good indicator of your nutritional status. For example, low levels of magnesium can cause fatigue. This important mineral plays a vital role in converting blood sugar into usable energy.
If you’re not getting enough B vitamins, you’ll also be dragging. B vitamins are the keys that unlock energy. The B vitamin complex includes B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin) B6, pantothenic acid, biotin, B12, choline and folate (folic acid). This powerful group maintains healthy brain cells, produces neurotransmitters, metabolizes carbohydrates and helps create red blood cells to carry oxygen to the brain. B vitamins also help regulate mood.
Getting regular exercise is another key to feeling great. A brisk, 10-minute walk will perk you up when you’re feeling droopy. Studies show it increases energy for two hours afterwards. Exercise releases “feel good” endorphins and sends more oxygen through your bloodstream to invigorate you.
By fortifying your body with good nutrition and being active, you’ll feel energized and focused to perform at your best every day. Never settle for just feeling “OK” when you can feel fantastic instead!
Live Longer, Live Healthier!
Most people aspire to live a long life. But because of chronic diseases, many older people face pain and disability that make their golden years difficult. Healthier living now can boost both your length and quality of life.
Through good nutritional support and smarter lifestyle choices you can slow the decline of your body’s functioning and maintain your vigor. Even if you’re a late bloomer, it’s never too late to strive for your top physical condition and performance.
It starts with what you put in your body over the long haul. Researchers in the Harvard University Nurses Health Study found eating the right foods may add years to your life. The study showed that women who ate the most fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains lived 17 percent longer than those who ate the smallest amount. Specifically, these healthy eaters were 28 percent less likely to die of heart disease or stroke.
Supplying your body with the right nutrients also keeps your cells young. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows daily multivitamin users had cells with a younger biological age versus non-users of multivitamins. The study found the antioxidants vitamins C and E seemed to be especially beneficial nutrients in keeping cells “young.”
Exercise is an important part of living longer and healthier too. And it’s never too late to reap the benefits. In a study, men who maintained or improved their physical fitness were less likely to die from all causes than men who remained unfit through their lives. Another study shows people who get a good daily workout can add nearly four years to their life spans.

Help Spread a Nutrition Revolution
This summer, the Reliv Revolution officially rolls out at the 2011 International Conference. It represents a declaration of independence from unhealthy living and unprecedented enthusiasm for a business that changes lives.
In 1988, a nutrition revolution quietly began when Reliv opened its doors to help others lead healthier lives. Ever since, we have continued to develop revolutionary products to address a host of health issues — such as our breakthrough healthy energy shot 24K™ launched earlier this year. Each of these products includes balanced nutrients that work synergistically for maximum effectiveness. Year after year, Reliv has been committed to making optimum nutrition simple.
Yet in the past 20-plus years, our world has become more stressful; and processed, nutrient-stripped foods make up an even larger part of many people’s diets. More than ever, our friends and families need optimal nutrition.
Reliv has the solution. Don’t settle for not feeling well or just feeling “fine.” Reliv wants everyone to feel “great!” It’s time to rev up the Reliv Revolution to help more people enjoy optimal health — for years to come.
