"I got the Vita-Mix as a Christmas gift. I wanted to start eating a healthier diet. What happend was amazing. My husband's cholesterol was 270. After 4 months, my husband's cholesterol went down to 210 (using no medications). His doctor was very impressed.
We both have dropped a full size and I went through the winter for the first time ever without getting a cold or flu. I use my Vita-Mix almost every day, it makes meal preparation so quick and easy. Thanks for a wonderful product!!"
