Ah, the joys of fall — the leaves are turning, the pumpkins are out and the kids are back in school.  During all those back-to-school preparations, did you remember to prepare your child’s immune system? Fall is also the start of cold & flu season and all the sniffling, sneezing and coughing that goes with it, putting our immune systems to the test.

Prevention: The Earlier, the Better
It’s important to remember with children that their immune systems are still developing and are not the same as an adult’s. The immune system strengthens over time. During the first few months of life, an infant relies partly on mother’s antibodies. We see that babies often get infections that are uncommon in adults and react differently to vaccines. It isn’t until a child is about five years old that they are able to make effective antibodies against certain antigens. A child’s immune system won’t resemble an adult’s until he or she reaches puberty.

That’s why it’s so important to teach our kids good habits now that support their developing immune systems and overall health. Continue reading “Keeping Kids Healthy: Building Immunity Through Nutrition”

Reliv Ant-Inflammatory Performance Nutrition

Redefining Sports Nutrition

The term “sports nutrition” invokes images of buff gym rats lugging around kegs of protein powder, as well as lithe distance runners throwing back concoctions of carbs and electrolytes en route to the finish line. Yes, these types of athletes have unique nutritional needs and use specialty supplements to support their performance goals. But sports nutrition can benefit more than just elite athletes. In fact, you don’t have to be an “athlete” at all to benefit from the research and products labeled for sport. Continue reading “Inflammation and the Changing Face of Sports Nutrition”

LunaRich Super Pack

How do you move 107 LunaRich® Super Packs in one month? According to Scott Weaver of Imler, Pennsylvania, there’s no secret: “Being sincere about helping people is my key to success. Making this business about others is what it’s all about. It’s not magic — show people you care and the results will come.”

Scott’s organization was able to move all those Super Packs by building momentum — by bringing in new people who brought in more new people. “Super Packs get people excited,” he says. “When they see the boxes stacked in front of a room and hear the stories about what these products are doing for people, they want what’s in the box.”

Thanks to the Super Pack, Scott finished first in volume among all Distributors in the nation in April, earning a Kalogris Humanitarian Award and a trip for two to Quebec City for the 2014 Leadership Celebration. Learn how you can earn the trip this month.

And all those Super Packs are helping people see better results. “People used to leave our presentations with one can of Reliv Now® and one bottle of LunaRich X™,” Scott says. “Now they leave with a four-month supply. And with these two remarkable products, they can’t escape seeing results!”  Continue reading “4 Tips to Move 100+ Super Packs This Month”

Change is the product of innovation.
