So what is Epigenetics?

Epigenetics is a new frontier of scientific innovation. That makes it fascinating, exciting… and kind of hard to explain. Reliv is here to help! The man who discovered what it was in soy that was so beneficial to health and gave it its name: Lunasin is the head scientist with Reliv International.  Lunasin: The first dietary ingredient identified to affect gene expression and promote optimal health at the epigenetic level. Now available in concentrated form in LunaRich X.

Multiply your good health by the power of X with this  Xtraordinary Discovery


Nutrition at a Higher Level

Genome: The blueprint of life — the DNA that makes you who you are. All 200+ cell types in your body contain the same genome.

Epigenome: DNA packaging material that works as a series of genetic switches, signaling your genome which genes to turn on and off. Determines cell function (skin cells, liver cells, etc.), as well as how well each cell performs its function.

Lunasin: The first dietary ingredient identified to affect gene expression and promote optimal health at the epigenetic level. Now available in concentrated form in LunaRich X.

Bottom line: You can’t change your DNA blueprint, but you can influence how that DNA expresses itself. LunaRich X can help.

Upgrade to You 2.0

Think of your cells in computer terms. The DNA in your ge­nome is like hardware, the actual computer components that perform specific functions. Your epigenome is like software, the programs that tell the hardware which func­tions to perform.


Soy’s health benefits are well-established. But only recently have scien­tists uncovered the nutritional component largely responsible. Studies now show the key is lunasin, a naturally occurring soy peptide.

Researchers at the University of California-Berkley first discovered luna­sin in 1996. Today 50+ peer-reviewed and published studies from 25+ research institutions demonstrate lunasin’s ability to improve your health, making it one of the most scientifically supported nutri­tional compounds available.

LunaRich X™ is the most pure, concentrated form of lunasin ever produced. You’d have to consume 25 grams of high-quality soy pro­tein to get the same amount of bioactive lunasin found in one 125 mg capsule of LunaRich X. And documented benefits prove that it supports:

  • Heart health
  • Cholesterol management
  • Inflammation reduction
  • Antioxidant benefits
  • Immune support
  • Overall cellular health
  • And the list keeps growing…

Love Your Heart Enough To Make Some Changes

Changes You Can Make

1 Eat Better

Eating a wide variety of foods that are low in fat, cholesterol and salt, but rich in nutrients can help protect your heart. Instead of thinking about a healthy diet  of what you can’t eat, think about  of what you can eat. Add more:Fruits and vegetables— about 4 1/2 cups a day  and Whole grain foods— at least three 1-ounce servings a day.  Fish— at least two 3 1/2-ounce servings a week.  Nuts, legumes and seeds— at least four servings a week

About 25 percent of the cholesterol in your blood comes from the foods you eat. Eating healthy foods low in cholesterol, trans fats and saturated fats, as well as foods that are high in fiber, can help keep cholesterol levels in check.  Another way to help control cholesterol levels is by incorporating soy protein into your healthy diet.  Research has shown that soy-based diets can reduce LDL cholesterol(bad cholesterol) and triglycerides, and raise HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol).  One of the key components in soy’s cholesterol lowering properties is called lunasin, a naturally occurring soy peptide. It was found to work at the earlier stage of cholesterol production in the body, or at what’s known as the epigeneticlevel. This indicated that heart disease and other hereditary conditions might be controllable by adding lunasin to your diet. Research on lunasin was so promising that scientists found a way to extract lunasin from soybeans so that it could be made available in a pure form. Lunasin content in soy-based foods varies by product and by brand.  For example, LunaRich soy powder delivers the lunasin equivalent of 25 grams of soy protein. To get that same amount from other foods, you would need to drink approximately 32 ounces of soy milk,or eat approximately 12 ounces of tofu. Learn more about lunasin at

Making better lifestyle choices reduces your risk of heart disease — and it’s not as hard as you might think.

Heart-Healthy Living Works

A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that people who most closely followed the diet and lifestyle recommendations of the American Heart Association (AHA) had  a 76 percent lower risk of dying from heart disease, and a 51 percent lower risk of all-cause deaths than those who didn’t follow recommendations as closely.

Lose Weight

Being overweight is a risk factor for heart disease all on its own. Extra weight puts more burden on your heart, lungs, blood vessels and bones. Being overweight increases the risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes, as well.  Losing even 10 pounds can produce a significant reduction in blood pressure.

Talk to your doctor

— Find out your body mass index (BMI), which is your body weight relative to your height. Find out what your BMI should be, and find out what your calorie intake should be for someone of your age, gender and level of physical activity.

2 Get Moving

According to the AHA, nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t get the physical activity they need. But daily physical activity can increase your quality  and length of life. Moderate exercise can help you lose weight, reduce your chances of stroke, diabetes and heart disease complications, lower your blood pressure and prevent other serious medical complications.

Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate activity a day, five times per week.   Do chores — Outdoor chores like gardening,raking leaves and washing the car are good ways to get moving. Cleaning house does it,too. Try turning on some music and dancing while doing chores.

Even small changes like these can give you health benefits, but you’ll see bigger benefits when you increase the duration, frequency and intensity of your activities. Always talk with your doctor to find out if there are any activities that you should not be doing.

A Triple Threat Against
Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is not a disease in itself, but
it dramatically increases the likelihood of developing
diabetes, obesity, heart disease and stroke. In
general, a person with metabolic syndrome is twice
as likely to develop heart disease and five times
more likely to develop diabetes. And it’s a problem
that promises to get worse in the years ahead
— the American Heart Association has estimated
that metabolic syndrome soon will become the primary
risk factor for cardiovascular disease, ahead of
cigarette smoking.
Aaccording to the American Heart Association, it can be defined as having
at least three of a cluster of five risk factors:
1. high blood pressure
2. high blood sugar
3. high triglycerides
4. abnormal cholesterol levels and
5. excess body weight — especially abdominal fat

A patented formula combines
the power of cutting-edge ingredients such as Pycnogenol®,
cinnamon and banaba leaf extract.

Clinical Trial Confirms: GlucAffect Works

If you would like a copy of the full study email me at :

Daily consumption of GlucAffect dietary supplement has been clinically shown to help lower blood glucose levels and aid in weight loss.

In an eight-week clinical study, 50 overweight subjects with moderately elevated fasting blood glucose, criteria for metabolic syndrome, were randomly assigned to either receive four daily servings of GlucAffect nutritional supplement or an inactive control product with identical taste, color and texture as a meal replacement. They also agreed to participate in a diet and exercise program.

Test subjects taking GlucAffect lowered their blood fasting glucose by an average of 30%, moving from elevated glucose levels to healthy blood sugar values. The lowered blood glucose was confirmed by the average HbA1c (glycosylated hemoglobin) level, which also moved into the healthy range. No significant glucose lowering was found in the control group. In addition, those individuals taking GlucAffect lost an average of nearly 16 pounds during the eight-week period, slimming to an extent on average that they achieved their optimal BMI (body mass index). No significant effect on body weight was found in the control group.

In creating GlucAffect, we included ingredients clinically shown to help address blood sugar management using amounts that had already been proven effective, so we expected good results. But even we could not have expected such a dramatic outcome in just eight weeks. Needless to say, we’re thrilled with the results and eager to share this product with the world.

Proper Nutrition

Perhaps one of the most pillars for one’s health is proper nutrition: it can make or break our bodily health, but also our mental health and it can cause a myriad of problems such as obesity, cardiovascular issues, diarrhea, constipation, acné…

To have proper nutrition and a good, varied diet there are some guidelines to follow: there’s not such a thing as “bad food”, as long as you eat it in moderation and you need a proper ratio of proteins, carbs, and fat.

Fiber is also crucial for your intestinal health so you should eat 5 pieces of fruit or vegetables a day, which will also help with your daily dose of vitamins (after all, vegetables are some of the most vitamin-rich food there is).
