Boston Marathon Team Hoyt – Last Race

The driving force behind LivOn supplements is determination and the desire to experience an improved quality of life.  Determination and drive combined with teamwork, fitness and nutrition has kept Team Hoyt moving forward for 34 years. Now, a force we have admired is retiring.

The 2014 Boston Marathon is Team Hoyt’s last. Dick Hoyt, 73, and his son, Rick, 52, have competed in over 1,000 races, including marathons, triathlons, and Ironman competitions. That figure alone is staggering, but what is astounding is that Rick Hoyt, one half of this dynamic athletic team, has cerebral palsy.

At birth, Rick’s umbilical cord became twisted around his neck, blocking oxygen and leaving his brain unable to send correct messages to his muscles. Doctors encouraged the Hoyts to institutionalize Rick, informing them he would never live a “normal” life, much less go on to compete in athletics.  So, how does this team finish all these races? Rick’s father has been behind him, literally pushing him, every step of the way.

Dick, a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the Air National Guard and Rick, a graduate of Boston University, ran their first race in 1977. During those first miles, Rick felt as though he wasn’t handicapped—he was simply one of the runners. With this realization, Dick started training. Rick attended public school and was unable to train daily, so Dick ran every day pushing a bag of cement in the wheelchair. Dick improved his fitness and, while pushing his son, was able to obtain a personal record of a 5k in 17 minutes…. Fast, at any age.

That was just the beginning. In triathlons, an endurance competition that involves swimming, cycling, and running in immediate succession over various distances,  Dick pulls Rick in a boat with a bungee cord attached to a vest while he swims, pedals a special two-seater bicycle, and then pushes Rick in his custom made running chair. Every step of the way, Team Hoyt meets the challenge together.

The Hoyts, who reside in Massachusetts, did not finish the 2013 Boston Marathon. They had almost a mile to go when bombs exploded near the finish line. They were not injured. This year team Hoyt will run the Boston Marathon, Rick’s favorite race, for the final time.

Celebrating 10 Years of Cutting-Edge Science, Quality and Service

best liposomal supplements

10 Years…. Wow! Time flies when you’re helping others and doing what you love.

We started this journey to improve your health, as well as our own, a decade ago. This important milestone is a time to reflect – Where We’ve Been, Where We Are, and Where We’re Headed.

Where We’ve Been – Life-Saving Discovery

We created a new, powerful delivery method for nutritional supplements. This discovery was born out of a desperate, personal need to save the company founder’s own life. After years of trial and error, LivOn developed a product – Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C – that was (and still is) far better than any other Vitamin C supplement.

Where We Are – Grateful

Each day we receive letters from people all over the world detailing how Lypo-Spheric™ products have lead them to healthier lives, cured what ailed them and in several cases, saved lives. We knew this was possible with the right formula and that is why we never gave up on our mission to deliver high-performance, life-changing supplements. We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to improve countless lives through our research, products and customer service.

Where We’re Going – New Products & Lower Prices

We have added two new products to the Lypo-Spheric™ line: R-ALA (R-Alpha Lipoic Acid) and B Complex Plus.

We perfected the formula for two, customer-requested products, R-ALA and B Complex Plus. Each Lypo-Spheric™ formula spends at least 2 years in research and development, with formulators who have over 25 years of experience in Liposomal Encapsulation Technology (LET). This may be longer than most liposomal products spend in R&D, but we know this is how long it takes to properly monitor and test the stability of a good formula. We thank you for your patience and know that you will be just as pleased with the new products as we are.

We’re Lowering Our Prices

As the demand for Lypo-Spheric™ products has grown, we are giving back to you, by lowering our prices. Many companies focused purely on profits would argue that with demand at a high, now is the time to raise the price.

LivOn has never been a profit-hungry company. Sure, we need to keep the doors open and ensure our team can provide for their families, and we do, but the goal of Lypo-Spheric™ products is to help you live the best, most fulfilling life you can. So, if we are able to pass along cost-savings garnered from producing more product to meet demand, that’s just what we will do. Quantity-based discounts are out. Lower prices, every day, are in.

We’re Looking Forward to the Next Ten

The past ten years would not have been possible without our loyal customers.

Thanks to you, we have changed lives, selling over 2.3 million cartons of Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C in over 20 countries and counting. People everywhere depend on the unparalleled benefits of LivOn’s Lypo-Spheric™ products. From soccer moms to the chronically ill, to professional athletes, and Hollywood superstars, the need for bioavailable, life-saving supplements is universal.

LivOn Labs High Commission Affiliate Program FAQs

high commission affiliate program

How does the high commission affiliate program work?
LivOn Labs currently has two programs to help businesses and individuals make money. One is our distributor program, which gives you wholesale pricing for our products. This entails ordering bulk amounts of product and handling orders and shipping. This option may not be for everyone despite the higher margins involved. The other program LivOn Labs instituted, is an affiliate program. Our affiliate program allows you to sell LivOn Labs’ products without having to carry inventory risk or maintain a store front.

All you need is a website or a way to share your unique affiliate link (business cards, etc.). Upon signing up, you will receive a unique URL that you can provide to potential customers.

How much commission do I make?
Currently LivOn Labs pays 5-8% commission on sales. The good news is, if you are able to sell consistently LivOn Labs will automatically raise you to the next commission tier until you reach the maximum, which is 8% commission on sales. We have lower commission rates than some programs because we allow you to earn recurring commissions. Unlike other programs, we feel if you sent us a loyal customer, you deserve to be compensated for the life of that customer, as long as they order directly from LivOn Labs.

Do people have to buy the product right away to receive commission?
Our system allows us to track potential customers for 90 days. Therefore if you send us a visitor who checks our website and decides to make a purchase within three months, you are guaranteed to receive commissions on those sales.

Where do I put my unique affiliate link?
When you sign up for our Affiliate program you are given access to your own dashboard. This will show your current commissions, traffic being tracked, how close you are to your next payout, and most importantly, a marketing section (to the left), which will have banner ads you can copy and paste to your website. This will allow your website visitors to click on the banner ad and shop at www.LivOnLabs.com using your unique URL.

How do I sign up?
Signing up is quick and easy. Follow the link below and create your login. You will need basic information such as name, address and social or tax payer identification numbers. After you sign up and are approved (normally within 48 hours) you can begin optimizing your website.

LivOn Labs Affiliate Program Sign Up

What sort of content is not approved for the affiliate program?

Every website is reviewed for content due to federal regulations on the supplement industry. Often times we may approve an account to allow you to view the dashboard however this does not mean you are approved for the program. After a full website review, we will notify you of any issues. The type of content not allowed is any that misrepresents LivOn Labs, make unsubstantiated claims, or we feel does not suit our brand.

Vitamin C Expert, Thomas E Levy’s New Book

vitamin c expert book

Depending on where you are this winter, the weather might be frightful but it’s also a great time to curl up and catch up on your reading. Whether you still enjoy the feel of a book or prefer to go digital, check out several insightful books that just might save your life at www.medfoxpub.com

For many years vitamin C expert, Dr. Thomas E. Levy has written and lectured extensively on the importance of eliminating toxins while bolstering antioxidant defenses in the body, with particular focus on vitamin C.

Read why Calcium Supplements could be harmful to your health in his newest book, “Death by Calcium”. Want to know ‘A Little Known Genetic Secret’? Read “Primal Panacea” and find out what happened to the ability of humans to synthesize their own vitamin C. All of these books and more are available at MedFoxPub.com…. check it out!

For many years vitamin C expert, Dr. Thomas E. Levy has written and lectured extensively on the importance of eliminating toxins while bolstering antioxidant defenses in the body, with particular focus on vitamin C. Recently Dr. Levy turned his attention to calcium and calcium supplements. In his newest book, “Death by Calcium”, he acknowledges the importance of vitamin and mineral supplementation but strongly cautions against calcium supplements.

When You Read His Book, You Will Learn Why Dr. Levy Contends That:

  • Women with the highest calcium consumption, regardless of source (diet, supplements), had a death rate two and one-half times higher than the women with lower consumption. This was a prospective study on 61,433 women followed over a 19-year period.
  • Women with osteoporosis do not have a generalized, body-wide deficiency of calcium. Rather, there is a deficiency of calcium in their bones, but the rest of their bodies have a calcium excess.
  • While calcium supplementation alone can increase the calcium density in the bones, it does not decrease the chances of an osteoporotic fracture. It is a cosmetic improvement only, and it further fuels the excess of calcium outside of the bones.
  • Typical American diets supply enough calcium for the needs of the body when blood vitamin D levels are maintained in the proper range.
  • Because of the emphasis on increased calcium intake, the typical osteoporosis patient faces a much higher chance of death from heart attack and stroke than from the consequences of an osteoporotic fracture.
  • All chronic degenerative diseases feature increased levels of calcium inside the cells of the body.

We think the facts that Dr. Levy brings to the reader about calcium supplementation are so important that we have an exclusive offer for you. By special arrangement with the publisher, MedFox Publishing, we would like to offer you the chance to purchase “Death by Calcium” as well as Dr.Levy’s other books, “Primal Panacea”, “Stop America’s #1 Killer” and “Curing the Incurable” with a $10 savings when you spend $45 or more.

This offer cannot be combined with any other promotion. Offer expires 3.31.14. So hurry!

Happy Virus Appreciation Day!

Yup, it’s a real thing.

October 3rd, is recognized as Virus Appreciation Day. Which virus exactly? No one really knows, the creators didn’t specify or identify themselves. So instead let us highlight how to destroy or avoid any virus.

Computer Viruses

Computer viruses have been around since the early 1970’s — before computers were in every home. With the expansion of knowledge, the average person with no formal computer science education can infect computers and networks.

One of the most damaging viruses was the I Love You virus.

In May 2000, a Filipino computer science student used VBScript to infect millions of Windows computers worldwide within a few hours. Considered to be the most damaging worm ever, it was spread using an email message with the subject line “ILOVEYOU” and the attachment “LOVE-LETTER-FOR-YOU-.txt.vbs”. Notice the end of this attachment, .vbs, which stands for Microsoft VBScript. The worm would infect the local machine, overwriting image files and sending a copy of itself to the first 50 addresses in the recipient’s Windows Address Book.

How To Protect Your Computer

It is estimated that the ILOVEYOU worm caused $5.5 to 8.7 billion in damages worldwide and cost an estimated $15 billion to remove the worm.

You can protect yourself by not opening any attachments from unknown sources as well as paying attention to the extension of the attachment. Avoid opening any of the following. These extensions tend to be the most common executable programs.

  1. EXE – DOS based executable file or program
  2. VBS – Visual Basic Scripts that execute a program or function
  3. ADE –
  4. ASP – Microsoft Active Server Page.
  5. BAT – MS-DOS batch file.
  6. HTML – HyperText Markup Language
  7. JS – JavaScript File – A text file containing JavaScript programming code.
  8. XSL – XML style sheet.

Note that there is no set list and these are constantly changing. Also some of these viruses are able to mask the extension or make it seem like a text document. This was the method used by the ILOVEYOU virus which appeared to be a text (txt) document. To learn more, read About Potentially Unsafe File Types.

Human Viruses

There are several tools available to you to protect yourself from viruses and the flu bug.  A good article to read is What Are the Odds of Getting the Flu? In this article the author shares several tools to keep you and your family healthy.  Viruses are spread by human contact. When you see someone coughing or sneezing, protect yourself and keep your distance. Also, remember that germs lurk all around us. On our keyboard at work, door knobs, cabinets, just about anywhere humans interact with objects. Keep your hands away from your eyes and nose. These are the highways that viruses love to cruise on.

Wash your hands frequently and don’t rely on only a bottle of hand sanitizer. Although this can kill some of the germs, the most effective way to keep your hands clean is to wash them with soap and water.

This Virus Appreciation Day, let us raise our awareness about how to protect ourselves and avoid missing work or school. Our health is money and prevention is far more cost efficient than visiting the doctor after you have become sick.

Simple Recipes for the Busy Professionals

What’s For Dinner?

Whether you are cooking for a family, for two or for one… by the end of the day, figuring out a healthy, tasty dinner meal is a challenge!

Tonight’s Dinner is a “Sexy” Egg! Why do I call it a “Sexy Egg?” Because it sounds interesting and what guy can turn down anything with the word “sexy” in it?

Portions are based on a meal for two hungry adults; adjust accordingly for kids or more adults.

3 large eggs

1 tablespoon of milk (I usually just pour in a “dash” of milk or soymilk… your choice)

dash of salt and pepper

one tablespoon olive oil

one half chopped onion

8-10 medium size mushrooms

one half pepper

2/3 cup of spinach or broccoli

one half cup of peas (optional)

other options:

–          2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese

–          slice of  smoked salmon or lox (cut into tiny pieces)

Directions

Beat the eggs well, add in the milk or soymilk; salt and pepper.

Heat a large frying pan with the tablespoon of oil. Sautee the onion, mushrooms and pepper in the oil. Once the veggies are soft, add in the remaining veggies. Now cover with the eggs. (If you decide  to include feta cheese, salmon or lox – make sure they are stirred into the egg batter.)

Place the pan into an oven that has been preheated to 375F. Bake for approximately 10 minutes. When the edges are lightly browned and the top is firm, dinner is ready!

I usually cut up pieces of pita bread, warm and serve with the “Sexy Egg”.

A plate of grapes and some cookies will finish this meal off.  Or try the very easy “cool” lemon ice recipe below.

 

A “Cool” Dessert – Lemon Ice Recipe*

2 cups sugar

1 cup water

2 cups lemon juice

Lemon slices

Fresh mint leaves, optional

Directions

In a large saucepan over low heat, cook and stir sugar and water until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat; stir in lemon juice.

Pour into a freezer container. Freeze for 4 hours, stirring every 30 minutes, or until mixture becomes slushy. Garnish servings with lemon slice and mint if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
