Ryan Parr works at a non-profit sports medicine store in Kansas City, but turns to Reliv nutrition to give him a competitive edge.

Reliv Regimen: Reliv Now®, Innergize!®, ProVantage®, 24K®

Staying Active: I like to stay active. In college, I played basketball, football, track, tennis, and I was a nationally competitive cheerleader. Now in my early 30s, I still play sports and compete in adventure running, 5Ks and half marathons.

Scientific Solution: I lost hope in supplementing. I decided to increase my fruits and veggies instead. When someone told me about Reliv, I was very skeptical. I asked a lot of questions and was impressed by the scientific answers. After taking Reliv, I started feeling better about a month later. It boosted my immune system, and my energy levels are sky high.

Athletic Boost: Reliv has cut my recovery time by a third. Performance-wise, I am faster, stronger and lighter than ever. I am way more efficient now. I wish I would have found Reliv sooner!

Making a Commitment: As a high school sophomore, I played varsity lacrosse. At the beginning of junior year, I verbally committed to play Division 1 lacrosse at a university in Connecticut. I knew I needed to get bigger, stronger and faster if I was going to succeed at that level.

Doing the Work: I started getting up at 6 am every day to run before class. I overhauled my diet to include fresh salads, whole wheat bread and thick ProVantage shakes from my mom, who is a Reliv Ambassador.

Worth the Hustle: I was injured during the first game of the season last year, but was diligent about therapy and nutrition to get me back on the field. I was cleared to play again after only 10 days and we ended up winning the State Championship! I also was named an All-American and am team captain this year. With Reliv, I’m ready to tackle college!

My Nutritional Edge: Reliv Athletics

MyNutritionEdgeMichaelThomas-webBy Michael Thomas, Captain of Oklahoma City Energy FC

I started taking Reliv during my senior year of high school to help my performance as a soccer player. I had been plagued with severe cramps due to dehydration from sweating during games and rarely finished a full 90 minutes. My dream was to become a professional soccer player, so I knew I had to take steps to be counted on to play the entire game.

Two Shakes a Day
I started taking two shakes a day of Reliv Classic®, Innergize!® and FibRestore®. Before games and at halftime, I’d take a “sports shake” of Innergize! and ProVantage®. The results convinced me that Reliv will always fuel my performance. I no longer cramp, I’m in better shape and I recover faster between games. Reliv has helped me quickly bounce back from injury, increased my muscle mass and improved my endurance.

Setback and Recovery
I moved on to the University of Notre Dame to play soccer after high school. I suffered a broken jaw, but was able to return to the team quickly and maintain my weight during recovery thanks to Slimplicity®, ProVantage and Arthaffect®. I impressed both the doctor and my coach with how fast my jaw healed and with my fitness level despite the time off.

Striker on Fire
I’m 26 and have been dedicated to these products for nine years. I still use the products every day and am well respected by teammates for my endurance and work rate. There is no doubt Reliv has allowed me to excel as one of the fittest players on every team for which I have played. Reliv is my nutritional edge.

Reliv Athlete Update: Greg James

I was struck by an IED while serving my country and I thought that was the end. They flew me back to Bethesda Naval Hospital and my prognosis was grim. I went from 220 pounds down to 145 and spent 44 days in a coma. It was a very rough ride for me.

Someone introduced me to Reliv and it changed my life. I started with Arthaffect® and immediately felt improvement from the soreness from my latest seizure. Reliv’s recuperating powers aren’t miraculous; they’re scientific. Reliv gave me the courage to come back after being told I couldn’t walk, after being told that I was out of the game.

I started doing judo again and by 2010 I had secured a gold medal and a world title. I’ve been in martial arts all my life and I’m here to tell you that this stuff works. Thank you, Reliv, for giving me my life back. I’m training for the 2016 Summer Olympics and can’t wait to be on the podium drinking my Reliv shake!

Master Greg James is the head instructor at the Agoge Martial Arts Academy. He is a Special Forces combat veteran, US Navy, with an honorable discharge. He specializes in military and law enforcement training, and regularly instructs the Secret Service, FBI, Green Beret, Army, Naval Academy, US Marine Corps, SWAT and many local law enforcement agencies.

Inflammation and the Changing Face of Sports 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”
