Reliv has exclusive rights to LunaRich™.
Does Reliv plan to put LunaRich into more Reliv products?
We plan to add LunaRich to additional Reliv products. However, we do not consider product changes at Reliv without thorough study and testing, even when third-party research indicates the change will improve the product. People who consume our products have come to rely on them for their health and wellbeing. And we do not take that responsibility lightly. Product development takes time and we want to make sure we create the ideal formulation in each and every product we make.
How does LunaRich help lower cholesterol levels?

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’s partnership with the Missouri Plant Science Center and Soy Labs marks a huge step forward in nutrition science. Through this partnership, Reliv now has dedicated fields of LunaRich soybeans grown exclusively for us. We can now direct the entire production process from seed to can to ensure safety, purity and potency.
How effectively is LunaRich absorbed by the body?
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.

Lunasin, the key ingredient in LunaRich, has been the subject of many clinical studies and there is no evidence that lunasin causes side effects.

Does LunaRich help with cancer prevention?
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. We do not promote Reliv products in that manner and we train our Distributors to follow our lead.
Will LunaRich be made available outside of the US?
Reliv Now with LunaRich is now available in the Philippines. We are looking at bringing LunaRich to every international market in the future.
