The Reliv Difference
How do you feel? Is your answer just… fine? Would you rather feel great? Then you need optimal nutrition — and no one delivers it like we do. Reliv makes advanced nutrition simple. Reliv products deliver a complete, balanced, optimal blend of the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, proteins and phytonutrients the body needs to thrive.
Bioavailability: More Than a Pill
The body can only use nutrients that it can readily absorb. And the faster a nutrient is broken down, the faster it is absorbed. Unfortunately, most pills and capsules require the digestive system to break down a hard outer shell or coating before the nutrients can even be accessed. This is why many experts assert that liquid vitamins are better absorbed by the body. Liquids provide the body instant access to the nutrients they contain, providing greater benefit from each serving.
Do you have synergy on your side?
Many vitamins and minerals only perform at their best when combined with other nutrients. For example, you’ve probably heard that vitamin D is required for absorption of calcium. This is called synergism.
Antioxidant protection is also part of a complex system of many nutrients and phytonutrients working together. For example, vitamin C can enhance the absorption of iron. Vitamin C and phytoestrogen work together against plaque build-up in the arteries. Vitamin C, vitamin E, and soy isoflavones are thought to contribute to lowering heart disease risk, but you need all of them for maximum effect. And the list goes on. This is why taking one type of vitamin may not be as effective as taking a supplement with multiple vitamins working together synergistically.
Optimal Nutrition: A Higher Standard
According to research, 70 percent of physicians and more than half of all US adults take a supplement for their health. In fact, since most people do not consume an adequate amount of vitamins through diet alone, the Journal of the American Medical Association advises adults take multivitamins to help prevent common chronic illnesses. But how much is enough? The Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) can be confusing for many consumers because it does not necessarily indicate optimal amounts, but rather the minimum needed to avoid short-term deficiency.
Reliv goes beyond the minimum daily requirements to follow the standard of optimal nutrition, developed by researchers who have shown that higher levels of key nutrients are essential to good health and well-being.
