Hometown: Franklin, MI
Gigs: Reliv, stay-at-home mom
Family focus: I worked for a great company with wonderful people and had great assignments. But my husband’s career requires him to travel at a moment’s notice. When we started a family, I could not imagine our stressful lifestyle had I kept my full-time job. And nothing beats working for myself as a Reliv Distributor.
Endless benefits: Being an entrepreneur with patented products that support wellness is a gift. I am able to be a supportive mother and wife while running my business. Reliv’s mission to Nourish Our World is inspiring and purposeful. I can feel good about introducing Reliv to others.
Responsible for life: I now have a greater sense of accountability to live a healthy life. It is part of my job description, and I empower others to follow my lead.
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!

It’s almost Halloween, and we know everyone is stocking up on garlic and wooden stakes for their protection against those 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.
