At 21, Karina Petroni has already lived a dedicated and passionate life. As the #1 female surfer in the United States, she has been making and breaking records within the surfing world since she was merely nine years old.
After her father suffered an aneurysm and subsequent stroke nearly two years ago, Karina and her family were motivated to organize The Never Quit Tour to help educate the community on how to avoid brain bleeds, stroke and heart disease through healthy life choices and to encourage survivors to take on a “Never Quit” attitude and live life to its fullest.
While Karina and her brother Erik were promoting the “Never Quit Tour” to a group of high school students in Ponte Vedra, Florida, Karina was approached by Michael Lattuca, Jr., a tenth-grader at the school.
“Understanding that our father had suffered a severe stroke and that our organization advocates the prevention of such conditions, Michael introduced us to Mila,” said Karina. “He explained that the omega 3s act as a brain food and that it might assist our dad in his recovery.”
Intrigued by the amazing health potential of Mila, Karina soon met with Michael’s father, Mike. After learning about all of the goodness that Mila has to offer, she decided to join Lifemax as an Independent Distributor.
“Mila and health are synonymous,” said Karina. “If you are health conscious like I am, Mila is the single best delivery system of Omega 3’s, without the mercury that is in fish oil.”
One of Karina’s goals at Never Quit Never is to make sure that everyone knows the benefits of good nutrition and exercise and the impact that they can have on the health.
Q) How does Harvest time affect the quality of the product?
A) If the crop is not harvested at optimum maturity, the quality suffers and as such is lower in total oil and Omega-3 content as well as other nutritional components.
Q) How did Salvia hispanica L. become known as “Chia”?
A) The Aztec word for this crop was “chian” but was shortened to “chia” through translation from Natal which is the native language of the Aztecs.
Q) Is there a nutritional difference in the varieties of the seed?
A) Yes. The oil content, amount of Omega-3, protein and phytonutrients vary. Mila™ is made using seed which is selected because they contain the highest amounts of these components.
Q) What conditions affect the nutritional properties of the Salvia hispanica L.?
A) As with any oil seed crop, cooler climates increase oil content and in this seed it also increases the Omega-3 content as well.
Q) What is the difference between ground and the Mila™ process?
A) Conventional grinding heats the seed, which in turn leads to oxidation and decreased oil quality and to an extent quantity. Thus grinding reduces the shelf life of the product. The Mila™ process opens the seed and increases the surface area exposed to the digestive process. This ensures the highest bio-availability of any other form of Salvia hispanica L. known to me.
Q) What is the shelf-life of Mila™?
A) An unopened pouch of Mila™ can last for several years. Once opened, many factors contribute to its shelf-life. Although Mila™ does not require refrigeration, we recommend that if you do not use the product as directed (each pouch is a one-month supply) that you store it in a temperate, dry place such as your refrigerator.
Q) What is Bio-Availability?
A) Bio-availability is a technical term used to express nutrient availability and absorption. The more bio-available the product, the more beneficial it is to the body.
Q) How many variations of Salvia hispanica L. are out there and are they considered equal in nutritional benefits?
A) The Aztecs had numerous varieties, however today this number has been reduced significantly due to mixing of the seed following the Spanish conquest. Not all have different nutritional profiles since the vast majority of seed available today came from the same mixed source of seed.
Q) What factors affect the nutritional value of Salvia hispanica L.?
A) Climate, rainfall, soil conditions, altitude, latitude and agronomic practices all contribute to the quality of the seed.
Q) How do you determine which seed goes into Mila™? Is there a Quality Control process or grading system for the Salvia hispanica L.?
A) All of our production is analyzed in certified laboratories. Based on these analyses, we select only the highest quality seed which is then mixed and processed to produce Mila™.
Q) What happens to the seed that doesn’t make the cut for use in Mila™?
A) Mila™ truly is a unique product which can only be grown in limited supply! Our mission is to change the health of the world and whatever seed does not make the cut is utilized in many different channels of distribution to achieve that mission.
More testimonials on the positive effects of MILA on people’s health.
“As a marathon runner and triathlon participant I was always looking for a way to supplement my diet to replace what training was draining from my system. In my search for the most natural way to supplement my daily nutrition shakes I saw an article in Men’s Health that referenced the Chia Pet and the seeds it used. After some research I was introduced to Mila and its benefits.”
“Since then I’ve replaced one of my powder supplements, flax seed, etc.. The main ingredient in my daily shakes is the seeds. My system has taken to the supplement like wildfire. The first test will be my 15th Peachtree Road Race this weekend. If my daily runs are any indication, my time should be a record.”

“I want to give you feedback on the effect of the product on my son after only one scoop last night and one this morning.Â I noticed this morning that he actually got up without a fight, he got ready in a timely manner (rather than staring off into space), andÂ got off to school without the usual dragging of his feet and lack of enthusiasm.Â I followed up with my sonâ€™s teacher who reported that he came to class, sat down and started doing his work, something she has not seen in him in a very long time.Â I am delighted with this change after such a short time with the Lifemax product. What a difference!â€

“The joyous day I learned I was pregnant, it wasn’t about me anymore; I was then responsible for someone else’s life. Eating Mila daily was the very best thing I could do for the precious life I was carrying. I was so elated that I had been consuming Mila every day for six months before hand, which put my body in optimal health for conception. At the first pre-natal appointment with the OBGYN, not aware of Mila, he presented many prescription samples of processed omega 3 pills from which I was to choose. I told him, “No, thank you, I’m eating Mila!”
After conception, I increased my intake to two scoops daily to give our baby the perfect nutrients to grow strong and healthy the way God intended. Every morning at breakfast, I would say, “Eat your Mila, baby!”
After birth, she scored a nine on her APGAR test. With a proud chuckle, I asked the doctor, “Why not a ten?” “She’s as close as it gets; no baby grades a ten”, he said with a grin. That made my husband, Brian, and I both smile from ear to ear! I believe Mila had a lot to do with our baby being healthy and my having had an ideal pregnancy. Knowing our daughter had Mila from conception to birth makes us feel we did the best thing for her. As a mother, that is the most comforting feeling in the world.
I would encourage women, who are pregnant, or who want to become pregnant, to look into the medical research documenting the many benefits of Omega 3’s for fetal development, especially the brain. It’s the most important nutrient you can give your unborn child.
Now, I’m breastfeeding and she gets the nutrients from Mila in that way. I continue to eat two scoops of Mila every day. And when she starts solids, I’ll incrementally add Mila to her food. Every day she surprises us at how alert, smart and strong she is and how she is advancing. Because of Mila she has such a head start on life from a health standpoint. We can’t wait to see what she does next!
Our daughter’s name is Esabella Ryan Bilbro. She was born December 22, 2008, 7:53 AM, 7 pounds, 11 ounces, 21 inches and she is the first Lifemax baby. She is our “Why!” We call her our Mila Baby and I’m the Mila Momma!
Thank you, Dr. Coates for re-discovering God’s perfect food and assembling your masterpiece, Mila. To Lifemax, thank you for distributing the World’s Healthiest Whole Raw Food and helping me be an amazing mother right from the start!”

“I have lost 36 pounds since January the 8th. My son gave me a bag of Mila in January. I somewhat reluctantly took the bag of Mila because I have been in a few network marketing companies and was not planning on being involved in another one. Guess what ? I changed my mind. Lifemax has changed my life. I have been on quite a few diets over the years and would either starve myself or have to eat every few hours. I had NO life of my own. So when he gave me a bag of Mila and I slept through the night the first night, I was curious if this food was what helped me sleep through the night. So the 2nd night I took Mila and slept through the night I knew there was something happening for the good. About a week after I had started putting Mila in my orange juice, I got on the scales and had lost 5 pounds. I thought what is with that? I continued to put my Mila in my orange juice or salads or oatmeal and kept losing. People all of a sudden were asking how I was losing my weight. I have lost two sizes in three months. I could tell you all of the other things Mila has done for me. It has helped me sleep through the night, have more energy that I have had in a long long time. I think more clearly and feel so good. I have a goal of losing 35 more pounds before our 40th anniversary in November. I have no doubt at all that I will have lost it before then. Even if I was not losing weight I would eat Mila for the rest of my life. It is a gift to all of us and something that everyone needs to eat. Another thing…my skin is softer and my hair is stronger. Mila is the food that keeps on giving, it truly is a Miracle Seed. Thank you, Lifemax!”

“My husband has lost 14 pounds since he started taking Mila three months ago. The best thing about the weight loss, is that he has tried many different ways to lose weight and was unsuccessful, always feeling tired and hungry. Mila taken between meals with plain water has helped increase his energy levels and keeps him from feeling hungry and “deprived.”
— Dr. Donna G.
“After being on Mila for about three weeks I have experienced a great change! My energy level doesn’t crash in the afternoon (no need for my regular midday coffee) and I am able to focus better and get more accomplished. As an added bonus, I have even noticed a weight loss! This product is truly worth trying! Thanks!”
— Amie L.
“Thank you so much for introducing me to Mila, you got me sold, or rather the product speaks for itself and my children are taking it and as we speak I just finished introducing the product to my sister in law who is pregnant and she ran to go take it as well. That is what it’s all about, proper health and nutrition, living life to the fullest, to the max.”

“Hello Lifemax, I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for providing us with such a great product. Mila is the best. From the first time i started taking this grain I felt a difference. MORE energy and BETTER mental awareness. I also want to take a minute to say hello to Jim and Sherri Wear. I think they have a done wonderful job in building this great company. They are surely attracting the right people.”
— Greg N.
“I have lost 35 lbs and met the goal established by my Dr. I am now a size 4/6 which is much smaller than the 14/16. The product keeps me full longer and satisfied. I use one full scoop a day and that is in the morning in my breakfast. I then go workout and find out I am burning on average 375-420 calories in that 30 minutes. I have more energy and this last me the day.”

“Well, I gave my daughter a canister 2 weeks ago and it has been a God send. She says she has more energy with dealing with the boys and she feels wonderful. Yesterday I spent the morning with her and she looked better than she has looked in months!! As a side note her husband is on the product too and this weekend in Orlando he is competing in his first Triathlon at Moss Park. He also gives credit to his renewed vigor to Lifemax.”

“I have had what I call an “addiction” with energy drinks. I would drink an average of 3-4 cans a day. That’s the average. Sometimes I would drink even more than that though!! I love energy!!! But, I really was having a hard time with it because I literally felt like I NEEDED it to get me through the day…”
“The morning I started using Mila I quit drinking energy drinks. I had immediate energy and it lasted the entire day! I noticed I was sleeping better, and actually felt different in the mornings. It was easier to wake up, and easier to go to sleep! I stopped drinking energy drinks on day 1 of Mila and haven’t needed it since!!!”
“I have more than enough energy and I just feel better. If you knew me personally, you would know that it is a HUGE DEAL. I drank that many cans for over 2 years and the day I started Lifemax, I quit!!! WOW–Think about it. Every single day for 2 years!!!”
“I also noticed I remember things a bit better. I am the worst at remembering even things that happened a day ago, and lately I don’t have to make nearly as many reminders for myself as I usually do.”
“I feel great, I feel happy, and I know that it’s Mila. NOTHING ELSE in my life has changed. I have been using the grain on the brain for almost a month now, and I don’t think I will be stopping anytime soon!”

“Fervent defines the essence of my belief in my Lifemax experience. To share it is my goal. From the product introduction, to the ease of consumption leading to tremendous elevation in energy, and mental clarity, it is only natural that all involved, highlighted by founders Jim and Sherri Wear, are as real and inspirational as Mila itself. Having been involved in various facets of sales over the past twenty years, I am making Lifemax my most important message to deliver yet.”

“Yesterday I went WITHOUT Mila! Today I’m up three pounds, it is all water and swollen joints. I didn’t realize just how much the grain was doing for my inflammation! And the pain in the joints of my hands is back! I know that I have been working hard the last three weeks, (cleaning this house for the party last night and cleaning the rental house for new tenants) however I was beginning to feel like I was 40 again! I really liked the feeling of good health. I’m not real fond of feeling 68 again.”
— Mary C.
“My father brought a new product home he wanted me to try called Lifemax. I started mixing it in the morning with juice and after about two weeks my energy and focus returned! The chores I had to complete each day became easier and I had more focus with my home work which improved my grades greatly. My stamina in foot ball was greatly raised which helped me a lot. I recommend this product for all teenagers who want to find their focus in life.”
— Daniel A.
“I started using Mila from Lifemax on Monday, June 30, 2008 and I have lost 7 pounds in only 3 days!!!! The best part about it is that I feel great!! I am having very vivid dreams when I sleep!! So I wake up having more energy and better mental clarity!! Everyone should eat this AMAZING grain!!! My friends keep telling me how much thinner I look!! This is going to be a VERY SUCCESSFUL company with results like mine!! Thanks LifeMax.”
— Thomas S.
“I have been taking Lifemax for 2 months and just love the difference in my energy level! I no longer need to take a coffee break in the middle of the day to get my ‘second wind’ I have also noticed a difference in my hair, nails and skin. But what I like the most about Lifemax is that due to it not having any taste my four teenage daughters love to use it also. It is a wonderful product and I look forward to sharing it with my family and friends.”

“Since my husband, Andy, and I have been married, he has gained quite a bit of weight — probably 65 lbs. or so — and lost his hair, too. (I guess he has been very happy or very well fed by me. LOL) Over the course of the last several years, he has tried unsuccessful to lose that weight through dieting and exercising. He felt that maybe that was just how he was supposed to be. When he started eating the LifeMax Mila, he began to notice a difference in his digestive system right away and he wasn’t so cranky because he wasn’t as hungry. In a little over 6 weeks, he lost 29 lbs! He is still working at it but sees Lifemax as a way to get back to a thinner, healthier Andy. And I get my old Lovey back! His hair hasn’t grown back again, but there’s nothing sexier than a buff bald man!”
“As for me, I work hard everyday working in my private Neuromuscular practice with chronic patients. At the end of the day, my hands can become very sore and I can be exhausted physically — it’s like doing yoga for hours on end. Since using Mila, I feel so much energy even after the end of a long day. I, too, have noticed a huge difference in my digestive system and that’s even after I have tried some natural remedies made just for colon cleansing.”
“As for my kids, I’ve never seen them ask for something healthy like they do for Mila&. They love it in chocolate milk, yogurt smoothies, brownies, cookies, and even meatloaf. Thanks, Lifemax, for keeping me and my family healthy!”
— Pamela S.
“My boss (and best friend) came to me and told me about this new grain she had heard about and asked me to go to a meeting with her in Orlando. I said ok but didn’t believe it would be anything that would work. We went to the meeting and I listened to people talking but still didn’t believe what I was hearing. I knew I wouldn’t believe it unless it made a difference in my life. Well finally 3 weeks ago we got Lifemax. I have taken 1 scoop a day ever since we got it. I wanted to take it like everyone said so I could know for sure it worked. Starting Lifemax for me had nothing to do with making money although I am a single Mom and can use extra money. My main goal here is to maintain good health and help everyone I can so others don’t have to go through the pain I have gone through. I just wish I would have known of Lifemax a few months ago, maybe I could have helped my mom.”
