Epigenetic Factors You Can’t Control

Before we’re born, our parents’ choices, their health conditions and the environmental toxins they are exposed to can affect how our genes are expressed, especially during the vulnerable early development period. This includes genes related to adipogenesis, or the process of creating fat cells. The mechanism for adipogenesis is first set during the fetal and neonatal stages of life. Changes in the expression of these genes can affect the size of fat cells and how they are distributed in the body. Continue reading “Obesity & Epigenetics: Put on Your Skinny Genes!”

Time to change: I played football in high school as a lineman, eating fast food and guzzling soda — whatever was cheap and fast. By the time I was 21, doctors were concerned about my high blood pressure.

Work for it: I started working at Disney and wearing a 70-pound costume in the parade. I also started taking Reliv, which helped me stay hydrated and improved my sleep. Reliv helped me get down to a healthy weight and start to enjoy running.

Going the distance: Now I’m healthy enough to run long distances. I finished my first Disney half-marathon last summer and am eating well, working out and making Reliv a part of my daily nutrition plan. I’ll never go back.

Because of Reliv: I Feel Better than Ever

Sue Gorman-Mastrovito from Algonac, MI shares her thoughts on how Reliv got her to where she wanted to be.

I was not the dress size that I wanted to be when I began my journey three years ago to become healthier. I started drinking Reliv shakes and working out at a gym. I was able to drop a size and then two more when I added kickboxing to my regimen! It’s a huge accomplishment for me and I feel better than ever when I slip on my skinny jeans and they are buttoned, zipped and comfortable. I am now healthy inside and out through exercise and Reliv!

Because of Reliv: I’m Optimistic About My Future

Kendig-web
Adam Kendig of Myrtle Beach, SC shares his story on how Reliv gave him a newfound hope and confidence in his health.

I was skeptical about Reliv before I gave it a try last February. Then I noticed that my blood pressure was down for the first time in my life on only one capsule of LunaRich X per day. I lost 16 pounds in two months and found a renewed optimism about my health. I decided to try Reliv shakes as well and couldn’t stop telling people about my results. My wife and I initially signed up as Distributors to get a discount on the product, but now we’re working toward replacing our incomes with our Reliv business. This is an opportunity to help others find the same good health we have.

Because of Reliv: I Can Pursue my Passion

Trudell-webJaynie Trudell of Myrtle Beach, SC discusses how Reliv has helped her stay healthy all the while pursuing her dream of playing music.

I started using Reliv products in May. I’ve lost more than 20 pounds and my cholesterol is now under control. My inflammation and pain were about to force me to stop working as a professional musician. I started out with just one
LunaRich X® capsule per day and was able to save my performance career.

I decided to add Reliv shakes in July and started building my business. I’ve had health problems since I was 17, but Reliv has given me a new chance. I can’t remember a time that I felt this good. I get pretty emotional when I think about it. I look 10 years younger now that I’ve lost weight, and my inflammation and pain are gone. Reliv has changed my world!

Because of Reliv: My Entire Family is Healthy

Carter-webVicki Carter from Myrtle Beach, SC, shares her thoughts on how her whole family has benefited from Reliv.

I was an office manager for 16 years and always had to use vacation time to attend my daughter’s school functions. I noticed that other parents were at every school function and seemed to have more free time. That’s when another parent
introduced me to Reliv. I became a Distributor that month and a Master Affiliate the next. What began as a great business opportunity turned into a way for my family to become healthy together.
I had gained some weight over the years that I needed to lose, and Reliv helped me do it. My husband has seen incredible health results too — his cholesterol, allergies and digestive health have all improved. Our whole family feels great!

Because of Reliv: I’m in the Best Shape of my Life

NiemanHancock-webSheryl Nieman-Hancock of Clinton Township, MI shares her story of her success with Reliv.

LunaRich X™ jump started my weight loss last year. I’m a long distance runner and suffered a hip injury a while back, but my Reliv products keep me running at a great pace. They ease any inflammation I experience and I feel better than I have in years! I was introduced to Reliv two years ago and I continue to feel better every month. I can run faster without the extra weight and have less pain and soreness after my races. When I ran the Detroit Marathon, I shed 23 minutes off my previous time! I am 57 years old, but I feel even better than I did at 35!

LunaRich® works for me.

Reliv Regimen: Reliv Now®, FibRestore®, ProVantage®, ReversAge®, Innergize!®, LunaRich X®, 24K

Looking for an Answer: Before I was introduced to the Reliv products, I lived with seasonal allergies and achy knees. Reliv brought relief.

Reverse Aging: After just 10 months on Reliv, I feel like I am almost reversing the aging process. I have lost 60 pounds, I breathe much easier and the joints in my knees have greatly improved.

Investing in Yourself: The single best investment you can make in yourself is prevention. Plenty of people seem to have the money to buy trivial things, but have none for what their bodies truly need. They should give Reliv a try!
