How effectively a nutrient is absorbed by the body, has always been a key component in Reliv’s approach to nutrition. That’s why our products come in the form of easily absorbed shakes.
With LunaRich soy powder, we are taking the bioavailability of lunasin, a key peptide in soy, to a whole new level.
LunaRich’s proprietary refinement process retains a more uniform and integrated “shell” of protease inhibitors, protective chaperone molecules that protect the lunasin’s structure after consumption. The lunasin molecule retains its integrity as breakdown of the chaperone molecules continues into the small intestine, where it is absorbed for maximum benefit.
“We have demonstrated through our exclusive bioassay, based on lunasin’s proprietary epigenetic mechanism of action, that LunaRich products maintain lunasin’s bioactivity after digestion,” said Dr. Alfredo Galvez, lead scientific advisor at SL Technology, Inc., a Reliv subsidiary. “It is the only test of its kind in the supplement industry and gives Reliv the unique ability to guarantee the bioactivity and bioavailability of lunasin in its LunaRich products. Now we have additional patent protection for the novel formulations that make LunaRich products so effective in delivering all the health benefits of lunasin.”
