Throughout my 62+ years of life I’ve experienced a lot of adversity that made me the person I am today. From the time of my birth in Watts to my childhood in Compton and beyond—I’ve always faced life with my back firmly against the wall. Growing up the son of a preacher man my life consisted of extreme discipline and severe physical abuse.
As I grew up I overcame a number of other obstacles in my health and personal life. In 2001 at the age of 42 I was deemed disabled facing open heart surgery a few short years later. After nearly dying on several occasions I was left physically weak, losing nearly all of my muscles due to various hospitalizations.
Throughout this time I overcame adversity through resiliency, will power and a couple of other key attributes. If you’re dealing with physical or mental difficulties I’m here to empower you to become the best version of yourself using two secrets that helped me save my life. Let’s go, it's still your set!
Willpower and Determination
I’m no stranger to obstacles in my life. Out of the womb I was forced to overcome all odds to become the successful man I am today. I can be down, but never out. On May 20, 2005 I was rushed to UCI Medical Center for emergency open heart surgery. During my procedure I flat-lined three times and suffered long lasting side effects months afterwards.
As I laid awake in agonizing pain I was immobile and could barely breath at times. I constantly asked myself WHY did I have to experience such pain and anguish? Although my suffering had ended, my journey had only just begun.
I looked in the mirror and noticed that my muscles were completely gone. I had to start from scratch on day one at the beginning. I made a mental commitment to myself that I would come back stronger than ever. From the very bottom I began doing whatever I could to get physically stronger.
At first all I could do was walk a mere five minutes per day. Then eventually I could do ten minutes per day before gradually getting back into lifting weights. At first I was only pressing ten pound dumbbells but I kept envisioning benching several plates per side. Rebuilding my physical strength first required me having the mental capacity to do so.
After a period of time I was able to physically regain my muscle, strength, and size through perpetual willpower. My diet was another story. Previously I had consumed anything and everything I could get my hands on in order to pack on size. Dealing with severe and chronic cardiovascular issues required me completely restructuring my diet back to the beginning.
I had to start eating chicken breasts, broccoli, and other vegetables in lieu of steak, fried foods and other fatty substances. Above all else I told myself MY BODY IS A GIFT FROM GOD. You can get through anything in life if you set your mind to it!
Detoxification Using Plant Nutrients
Using plant based products can provide you with the nutrients it needs to naturally detoxify your body. By rebuilding my body from the inside out I was able to give myself the nutrition needed to start becoming a healthier human being.
Plant-based foods generally provide the body with key micronutrients to improve overall health and wellness. Fruits, vegetables, nuts and more can drown out toxins in the body by providing anti-cancer and antioxidant compounds to completely cleanse our insides.
As you begin to eat more healthy foods the body can become detoxified with the liver, kidneys, lungs, guts and skin returning to a healthy balance. To maintain a healthy balance today I now take Nektar on a daily basis.

What’s in Nektar?
Nektar contains scientifically validated ingredients that rebuild the body from the inside out. Let’s take a closer look at what’s inside Nektar.
Found in the cell walls of bacteria, fungi, yeasts, algae, lichens and more—Beta Glucans are commonly used for preventing heart disease and controlling high blood pressure. By preventing the absorption of cholesterol from food in the stomach and intestines—Beta Glucans help improve immune function by preventing infections.
As naturally occurring polysaccharides—Beta Glucans increase host immune defense by activating complement systems, enhancing macrophages and natural killer cell function (1). Beta Glucan is strongly linked to improving cholesterol levels and overall heart health. We added Beta Glucans to help maximize overall cardiovascular health.
Pumpkin seeds are full of valuable nutrients as they contain healthy fats Omega-3 and Omega-6, Magnesium and Zinc. They provide a number of health benefits including heart health, prostate health, and even help to prevent cancer.
Studies have shown that pumpkin seeds reduce high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels—two of the most common risk factors for heart disease (2). Research has shown that pumpkins can also increase nitric oxide generation thereby maximizing blood flow and reducing plaque found in the arteries. These pumpkin seeds aren’t just for Halloween anymore!
Although Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant produced in the body naturally—our levels decrease as we age. People that struggle with heart disease such as myself tend to have lower levels of CoQ10. Found in meat, fish and nuts—CoQ10 can be used to treat a number of conditions including:
- Heart conditions
- Parkinson’s disease
Each of our cells utilize CoQ10 for natural growth and maintenance. Although I’m getting older I’m still going to make sure I perform at my very best. Nektar contains optimal amounts of CoQ10 to maintain critical function within the electron transport chain. It helps create ATP, the biological energy currency needed by our cells for life, repair and regeneration.
If you’re looking for the perfect supplement in studied dosages—Nektar is the right choice for you. I had to fall to the bottom before I reached the top again. Nektar helps keep my health at peak capacity at all times.
