In 2002, Les Nachman’s doctors told him to get his affairs in order. If he didn’t get the heart transplant, he would die. A serial entrepreneur, giving up was anathema. So he sought another opinion. On the advice of a maverick cardiologist and renowned virologist/epidemiologist, he started lifestyle modifications that included intravenous vitamin C three times per week.
Les calls the results “miraculous.” But the discomfort, costs, and 8-hour drive from his home in Las Vegas suburb Henderson, meant that he had a lot less time to enjoy his new life. With 35 years in the dietary supplement industry, Les was convinced there was an easier, more affordable way to get high doses of Vitamin C without the major gastric distress that comes with traditional oral pills and powders.
After two years working with scientists, Ph.D.s, and manufacturers, Les and his wife Cindy (a former professional ballroom dancer turned CPA) finally had a product that delivered high-dose Vitamin C to the cells where it is needed. LivOn was created.
