About Us

From the Desk of the IVL Founders

Dear Friend,

My father loved health supplements. They were probably his favorite thing to study and read about. Along with dietary changes and exercise he used them religiously.

I also became interested in them and used health supplements to help with a digestive problem over 25 years ago, and have been using them ever since.

My Father was a big proponent of cellular nutrition and without his influence our product line would not exist today. And best of all, his theories worked for him and they can work for you too...

You see, my Dad outlived his father by 24 years and stayed independent up until the last several weeks of his life.

But with this said, he also made a mistake... he decided to forgo a treatment recommended by his specialist for bladder cancer. My father thought he could "beat it" through diet, exercise and nutrition alone.

With all this in mind, we would like to express that it's always important to continue with any medical treatment administered by your doctor for any disease, ailment or condition you are being treated for. We recommend that you use good common sense and not replace or discontinue your doctors advice.

Our products are not meant to treat illness or disease, and we make no claim that they will do so.

The IVL product line represents over 17 years of continued study and research originally influenced by my father but now continued on by our astute health advisory board.

Our products are designed to support your bodies natural ability to grow, function normally and feel better than you have ever felt before.

To a long, vital and independent life...
