The Safety of Soy:
Every cell in your body, from your brain to your toenails, contains the same DNA, or genome. So what makes different cells perform different functions? The answer lies in your epigenome, a higher level of complexity within the cell. The epigenome consists of DNA packaging material and works as a series of genetic switches. It determines cell function by signaling your genome which genes to turn on and off.
The epigenome also influences how well each cell functions. In the epigenome, the right lifestyle choices trigger healthy gene expression — the healthy genes get switched on, the unhealthy ones get switched off. So while you can’t change your DNA blueprint, you can influence the way that DNA expresses itself.
Nutrition is at the center of it all. And the soy peptide lunasin is the first dietary ingredient identified to affect gene expression and promote optimal health at the epigenetic level. With lunasin, you really can take control of your health.
The word epigenetics literally means "ON TOP OF GENETICS" or "RELATED TO" changes in the DNA sequence.
It is the study of how individual genes can be activated or deactivated by life experiences and a growing body of evidence shows that epigenetic changes can influenced by environmental factors such as diet.
Researchers now know that epigenetic modifications influenced gene expression and can thereby play an important role in the development of diseases. For example, a tumor suppressor gene, which normally regulates cell growth and death, can be "Turned Off" or silenced by an epigenetic modfication, rather than by a mutation of the gene itself.
What is Lunasin?
Lunasin is a naturally occuring peptide.
What does it do?
Works at the epigenetic level to promote the optimal functioning of the epigenome (packaging material that sits on top of the DNA).
Lunasin Nourishes: The Lunasin soy peptide is a dietary example of an epigenetic factor that causes changes in gene expression that eventually leads to favorable health outcomes.
Lunasin provides the nutritional fuel to promote optimal expression of genes required for normal cell function.
Reduces inflamation and cell damage caused by free radicals and other environmental hazzards. Provides protection in two ways:
Prevention - Activates the expression of genes that help reduce cell damage and prevents the expression of genes that can cause cell damage.
Maintenance - Helps remove damage cells from the body that may cause chronic health problems.
"Lunasin in LunaRich X™ isn’t just any ingredient; it’s the world’s first epigenetic superfood.”

Dr. Alfredo Galvez, EpiGenetist: On the Safety of Soy
Despite study after study proving soy's benefits and the overwhelming support of the scientific community, myths about soy persist. Perhaps the most common myth is that soy isn't safe for breast cancer patients and survivors. View this new video featuring renowned research scientist Dr. Alfredo Galvez to learn why this myth is exactly that: a myth.
Studies continue to show the many benefits of soy. Whether you're looking to reduce cholesterol, minimize menopausal symptoms or protect against health problems, soy provides a simple, effective way to take control of your health. And with Reliv's advanced LunaRich® products, harnessing the power of soy has never been easier.
