While the health benefits noted here are documented and rooted in scientific research, we want to be clear that we are not attaching any specific health benefit claims to Reliv products. Reliv products are not intended for the diagnosis, treatment, cure, or prevention of any disease. This research is presented to demonstrate how the scientific community continues to examine potential health benefits associated with Lunasin and other soy-based ingredients found in Reliv products.
Blood Glucose & Body Weight
- Eight-week clinical trial consisting of 50 overweight adults.
- Half of the subjects were given Reliv GlucAffect and half a non-active control product (placebo).
- Subjects taking GlucAffect lowered their blood fasting glucose by an average of 30%.
- No significant glucose lowering was found in the control group.
- Those taking GlucAffect lost an average of nearly 16 pounds.
- No significant effect on body weight was found in the control group.
- In a clinical trial, Cardiosentials proved effective in significantly reducing two risk factors for heart disease and stroke; elevated cholesterol and elevated glucose.
- Total cholesterol was lowered 7% and LDL was lowered 9%.
- Triglycerides were decreased 13%
- HDL (good cholesterol) increased 4%.
- The ratio of bad to good cholesterol (LDL/HDL), another heart disease risk factor, declined 13%
- Trial involved individuals taking statin medications and participants not taking statins.
- 60-day clinical study consisting of adult patients with lipid abnormalities
- Reliv Now and FibRestore:
- Proved effective in correcting lipid abnormalities and therefore may help in lowering the risk for cardiovascular disease.
- Reduced average cholesterol by 14%.
- Reduced average LDL by 18% and 8%, respectively.
- Reduced average triglycerides by 1.2% and 12.4%, respectively.
- Reduced average uric acid by 10.4% and 16.7%, respectively.
- Greater reduction in cholesterol and triglycerides among diabetic or overweight individuals.
- Clinical study measuring the improvement in radiation-induced fatigue for cancer patients who used Reliv products for 1-4 weeks.
- This was a "feasibility study," and while the results were significant, their scientific accuracy would need to be vetted through a controlled trial.
- Patients were given Reliv Classic and Innergize!
- 75% of participants considered their result as helping their fatigue.
- 25% of the entire group reported an "excellent" response.
- There was no harm done to those who reported no response (except one with a few episodes of vomiting).
Weight Loss, Heart Health, and Metabolic Wellness
- Eight-week clinical study of pigs supplemented with Reliv Now and LunaRich X.
- The physiology of pigs is very similar to humans, especially in liver function.
- Results included a decrease in weight gain and a 65% reduction in free fatty acid (FFA) levels, a biomarker associated with obesity and metabolic syndrome.
- 64% increase in levels of leptin, a hormone that signals the brain when the body has had enough food, producing the feeling of fullness.
- 60% increase in levels of adiponectin (ADP), a hormone from fat cells that controls energy metabolism.
- There is no existing treatment for improving these three biomarkers (free fatty acids, leptin and adiponectin).
- This study of Reliv Now in combination with LunaRich X yielded dramatic results in those areas.

A Letter From Dr. Carl Hastings
After nearly 40 years in the food industry, I can honestly say that Reliv is my dream come true.
For the past two decades, I've had the freedom and the support to "do things right." While other companies focus on the current nutritional fads and cut corners to boost profits, that has never been Reliv's way.
From the very beginning, Reliv's number one priority has been to create products that truly change people's lives using only the highest quality ingredients from the most reputable suppliers available. And I'm proud to say we've never faltered from that course.
Every ingredient and every formula is carefully and thoroughly researched before it makes its way to you. We know that the results of a single study don't make or break an ingredient. It takes numerous, well-designed studies over a significant period of time to convince us that an ingredient belongs in our products.

Nourishing Our World
Service to Others, Family Values Fuel Reliv 's Success
It was 1982 and Bob and Sandy Montgomery were searching for answers. After losing Bob's mother to cancer and Sandy's father to heart disease, they had become decidedly proactive on matters of their own health. They read books, pored over research journals and attended seminars. The more they researched, the more they learned about the connection between nutrition and optimum health. "We began to see how it was all linked," said Bob. "And, that's when we met Dr. Ted." Though they couldn't have known it at the time, the Montgomerys' introduction to Ted Kalogris at a nutritional seminar was destined to change the world.
A Tale of Two Men
Theodore P. Kalogris was the son of Greek immigrants who came to the United States in the early 1900's. From the time he was a child, Ted was encouraged to live a life of service to others. "A good motto that my father taught me - and I'm sure he learned from his father," said Dr. Ted, "is that I would be embarrassed to die if I could not score at least one good victory for mankind." Ted had a passion for science and earned advanced degrees in microbiology. But, with America in the throes of World War II, he delayed the start of his career and instead enlisted in the U.S. Army. He was sent to the European Theater, where he was severely wounded while parachuting to the battlefield.
The Birth of Reliv
The following year, Bob, Sandy and Dr. Carl Hastings, a longtime family friend, went to Washington, D.C. to meet with Dr. Ted about building a company around his product. Dr. Ted had some contacts in the food business and envisioned selling the product in grocery stores. "We could have put it on store shelves, but my opinion was this is the type of product that would just sit there and gather dust," said Bob. "You have to have word-of-mouth, somebody telling you why this is unique."
Eileen Bendiksen of Middleboro, MA, became a pharmacist because she wanted to help people. But for all the long hours and anxiety she endured, rarely did she see the kind of healing she witnessed with Reliv products.
"I was so overwhelmed with the response of the body to good nutrition," Eileen recalls. "For the first time in 16 years working in the medical profession, I was seeing progress."
That was in 1994. After working the business part-time for six months, Eileen retired from retail pharmacy to do Reliv full-time. "It was a wonderful feeling to experience freedom," she says. "Freedom to make choices of when I worked, with whom I worked, and how hard I worked."
Now, as Bronze Ambassadors, Eileen and her husband, Bernie, enjoy financial security and time with their family. "I am able to be present at my daughters' school functions, dance recitals and competitions. Plus, I've been able to replace my income working half the hours I did in retail pharmacy.
"Through Reliv I'm able to give two gifts to the public. I can see people receive their health back, and then I can show them how they can achieve financial security. What better gifts can you give to mankind?"
Culture of Caring
Every day, needy children around the globe are fed through Reliv nutrition. These children live in the mostly unsanitary, impoverished parts of the world. Most of the health problems these kids face are preventable.
Excellent nutrition can make all the difference. And, that is exactly what is happening. Through the Reliv Kalogris Foundation, children are receiving daily nutrition and they are flourishing.
Reliv established the Reliv Kalogris Foundation in 1995 as a non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization in honor of the late Dr. Theodore "Ted" Kalogris who created the nutritional formula that would become Reliv Classic®, the company's original product.
Since 1995, the Foundation has—
- distributed over $34 million in nutritional support
- supported more than 270 feeding programs
- grown to feed over 42,000 impoverished people daily
Much of that support comes directly from Reliv distributors. When you join Reliv, you get to be part of that global change. You get to say that you are part of something bigger—much, much bigger—than you. That is the Reliv Kalogris Foundation. That is Reliv's culture of caring.
