Being a scientist can be isolating at times. I spent 40 years of my life in a laboratory, studying one molecule in the human body. There were days when the only real fresh air I got was walking from the lab to my car, and my interaction with others was often limited.

Now, I am surrounded by people who enrich my life: my wife, my family and friends, and Independent Herbalife members.

In the more than 10 years I’ve been involved with Herbalife, I have been immensely grateful for the relationships I’ve formed, people I’ve met, and interactions I’ve had. What a joy it has been traveling the globe, talking to passionate members, all working toward the goal of promoting health, wellness and longevity. Few people are as lucky as I am to be surrounded by such an inspiring network.

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit Korea. My Independent Herbalife member training in Korea is always special because the members at all levels are special to me. The Korean members are especially knowledgeable about health and wellness and the science behind our products. Therefore, my trainings are extremely fun because I talk about the science behind our fantastic Herbalife products.

One particular Independent Herbalife member in Busan inspired me and made me feel even prouder to be associated with Herbalife. When this particular group of members walked up to stand beside me for a photo, this young lady put her hands on my shoulders and said, “Thank you, Dr. Ignarro, for all that you do for Herbalife. You make it so easy for me to sell our products, and I love to explain to the customers how our products work and why they are so heart healthy for you. Please keep up the good work that will someday eliminate heart disease.” I still think about that moment.

Aside from that trip, there are many other fulfilling moments I experience each and every time I travel. The most rewarding part of talking with Independent Herbalife members is the “Thank you so much” that I get from each and every one of them. When I ask them why they are thanking me, they always respond by saying that the Herbalife cardio line is so good and they feel confident that these high quality products will make a significant impact on their heart health and longevity. The members understand what makes a great product, and that makes my day every time.

So many good things have happened in the 10 plus years I’ve been involved in Herbalife. But the best thing, by far, has been the opportunity to interact with Independent Herbalife members like you and share my passion for helping people live healthier lives. You’re the ones who make it possible to spread the important message of endothelial and heart health to people all around the globe.

Please, if we cross paths in the future, say hello and tell me how Herbalife has impacted you. I look forward to meeting you.
