Dr. Bedlack discusses the hope with lunasin and ALS
A recent study of pigs supplemented daily with Reliv Now® and LunaRich X™ for eight weeks showed significant improvement in key biomarkers associated with cardiovascular and metabolic health.
Test subjects recorded a decrease in weight gain and a 65% reduction in free fatty acid (FFA) levels, a biomarker associated with obesity and metabolic syndrome. The decrease in FFA levels was accompanied by coordinate increases in plasma levels of the hormones leptin (+64%) and adiponectin (+60%). Leptin signals the brain when the body had enough food, producing the feeling of fullness. Adiponectin (ADP) is a hormone from fat cells that controls energy metabolism, increases insulin sensitivity and supports weight loss. The two hormones perform complementary actions and can have additive effects on weight management.
We chose to develop LunaRich for our products because lunasin promotes better health overall. Soy’s health benefits — from heart health to weight loss — are well-documented, and lunasin has been identified as the key to many of them. With more than five times the amount of lunasin as ordinary soy powder, and in a more bioavailable form, LunaRich is the best soy powder on the market today. Reliv is committed to using the most cutting-edge ingredients available because we believe optimal nutrition benefits everyone’s health and well-being. While we are aware of supporting articles in relation to lunasin and cancer research, in no way are Reliv products intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease, including cancer.
I know the devastation this disease can cause and if you wish to learn more about the cancer studies please contact us.
Lunasin, the key ingredient in LunaRich, has been the subject of many clinical studies and there is no evidence that lunasin causes side effects. Soy isoflavones do not act the same as estrogen does in the human body. To learn more, view this article with links to several sources in connection with this myth. Soy is truly a superfood, and you can read more about many of its health benefits here.
Bioavailability, how effectively a nutrient is absorbed by the body, has always been a key component in the Reliv Difference. With LunaRich soy powder, we have taken the bioavailability of lunasin, a key peptide in soy, to a whole new level. Learn more about LunaRich and bioavailability.
Health and safety are the number one priority for us at Reliv. We work only with suppliers who meet very high standards and every ingredient is rigorously tested throughout the production process. Reliv has dedicated fields of LunaRich soybeans grown exclusively for us. We direct the entire production process from seed to can to ensure safety, purity and potency.
No. In fact, Reliv Now with LunaRich is one of 10 gluten-free Reliv products. Read more about how Reliv nutrition can benefit people who must remain gluten-free.
Servings of LunaRich soy powder contain varying amounts of soy protein depending on the product, from 5g for Reliv Now® for Kids to 13 grams for ProVantage®. However, every serving of any LunaRich product does deliver the equivalent bioactive lunasin content found in 25 grams of high-quality soy protein.
LunaRich works to improve cholesterol in two ways. Most cholesterol is produced by your liver. Lunasin, a key peptide in LunaRich. has been clinically proven to disrupt production of cholesterol in the liver and improve the liver’s ability to clear LDL (bad) cholesterol from the bloodstream.
