My Story: Kevin Hinton

Kevin Hinton of Decatur, IL shares his story of growing a successful Reliv business.Hinton

Gigs: Marketing company owner, Reliv

Reliv Regimen: Reliv Now, Innergize!, ProVantage, FibRestore, CardioSentials®, GlucAffect, Arthaffect, 24K

Late Start: I first heard of Reliv back when the company started, but didn’t do anything at the time. A few years ago, I saw Scott Montgomery and it reminded me. I was excited to find out how much the business had grown!

Financial Security: I didn’t have a lot of free time, but I decided to start my own Reliv business in 2008 because I knew the products were good. I make a good living, but knew that if something happened to me, my family would be in financial trouble.

Just Do It: You have to step it up if you’re going to be successful with your business, so I got serious about it and recently made Key Director. I went out and started talking to people. Busy people get stuff done; they don’t debate it, they just do it!

Garlic: Good for More than Keeping Vampires Away

Garlic and wooden stakes have historically been though for their protection against night-walking vampires. But garlic holds many other protective benefits. Garlic contains manganese, tryptophan, phosphorous, copper, protein, vitamin B1, B6 and C at only 42 calories per ounce.

Vitamin C: Prevents the oxidation of your LDL (bad cholesterol). Oxidized LDL can lead to damage of your blood vessel walls.

Vitamin B6: Lowers the levels of the amino acid, homocysteine, which is a risk factor for heart disease.

Selenium: Aids in slowing the oxidation of LDL and so lowers the risk of coronary artery disease; also activates prostaglandins, which aid in the expansion and constriction of blood vessels, and regulate blood pressure.

Other Health Benefits of Garlic

● produces hydrogen sulfide gas, which helps to expand blood vessels and keep blood pressure in check

● may help improve iron metabolism

● has the ability to lower triglycerides and total cholesterol

● can help protect against blood clots by preventing the platelets from becoming too sticky

Preparation Tips: After chopping or crushing, let the garlic rest for a few minutes before adding it to a hot pan. And when cooking with garlic, add at the end of the recipe to maintain the most nutrition and taste.

Reliv nutritional products containing garlic include Reliv Now®, Reliv Classic® and FibRestore®. Not a garlic lover? Try a berry flavored CardioSentials® shake from Reliv instead. CardioSentials is clinically proven to lower risk factors for heart disease.
