Hi, my name is Steve Murtagh. I'm closing in on 70 years old and I live in Colorado Springs, CO (the Healthiest State in the USA!!). I was introduced to Reliv products in February of 2009, and at the time I considered myself to be in pretty good health. I ate well, I exercised daily and I had regular medical and dental checkups. Sure I had a few issues. My blood pressure was creeping up, I was carrying a few extra pounds. But I thought this was a normal and unavoidable consequence of getting older.
My real concern though was my risky genetic heritage. Cancer, coronary disease, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer's.... if there was a serious condition, someone in my family suffered from it. So prevention was very important to me. So I'd always used supplements. Lots of them. I believed that prevention required it. But I can't honestly say that I ever noticed any results. Nor did I really feel any different if I missed taking them for a few days.
I can sum up the appeal of Reliv products to me in just four words: Simple, Complete, Optimal and Scientific. Replacing 12 - 15 daily capsules and pills that I'd been taking with just two shakes was simple and easy. Everything I needed was there in precise and balanced amounts. And I could stop worrying about incorporating the latest nutritional science into my supplement program. Still, based on my previous experience, my expectations were low. But what did I have to lose?
After just one month taking the products, I "felt" better. I was sleeping more soundly through the night, awoke with more energy that lasted through my busy day, and had even lost a few pounds. After three months, my blood pressure was in the normal range for the first time in years, my cholesterol and blood glucose levels were at healthy levels and I had lost 11 pounds. . And if I missed a day or two, I knew it. I could feel it.
Its a very satisfying and empowering feeling to be able to get results like this so simply and reliably. And I've continued to benefit ever since. Along with a healthy diet and regular exercise, I'm planning on being fit and well for many more years.
