What is the difference between LunaRich® soy powder and LunaRich X™?
LunaRich whole soy powder contains five to ten times more lunasin than ordinary soy powders, and it delivers that elevated lunasin in a more bioavailable way. In addition to lunasin, LunaRich soy powder contains other beneficial nutritive components of soy, including protein, isoflavones and more. LunaRich X delivers lunasin extract in capsule form. LunaRich X is the most potent and concentrated form of lunasin available anywhere.
How does lunasin provide so many health benefits?
Lunasin works at the cellular level to provide benefits throughout the body. It attaches to the epigenome, that part of the cell which determines cell function. As a result, lunasin can increase expression of important genes needed for normal functioning of the cell and can protect the cells from environmental damage once it occurs.
Do LunaRich® and LunaRich X come from genetically modified soy beans?
No. Like all of Reliv’s soy formulas, LunaRich® is derived from non-GMO soybeans.
Is LunaRich® soy powder derived from whole soy?
Yes. LunaRich is a whole soy powder.
I do not to like to take pills, which is one of the reasons I choose to drink Reliv shakes. How can I consume LunaRich X?
Since LunaRich X comes in a bioavailable capsule instead of a tablet, you can simply open up the capsules and pour the contents into your Reliv shakes.
Is taking one serving of LunaRich® soy powder or LunaRich X the same as consuming 25 grams of soy protein?
No. In fact, LunaRich X does not contain any protein. Servings of LunaRich® soy powder contain varying amounts of soy protein depending on the product, from 5g for Reliv NOW for Kids to 13 grams for ProVantage®. However, every serving of any LunaRich® product does deliver the equivalent bioactive lunasin content found in 25 grams of high-quality soy protein.
How does LunaRich help lower cholesterol levels?
LunaRich® works to improve cholesterol in two ways. Most cholesterol is produced by your liver. Lunasin, a key peptide in LunaRich®, has been clinically proven to disrupt production of cholesterol in the liver and improve the liver’s ability to clear LDL (bad) cholesterol from the bloodstream.

Are there any concerns with LunaRich raising estrogen levels, particularly in men?
Lunasin, the key ingredient in LunaRich®, has been the subject of many clinical studies and there is no evidence that lunasin causes side effects. Soy isoflavones do not act the same as estrogen does in the human body. This is one of the soy myths from the past. Non-GMO Soy is truly a superfood.
