Who you are is written in both pen and pencil. Things written in pen you can’t change. That’s DNA. But things written in pencil you can. That’s epigenetics.
The epigenome acts like a dimmer for lights, controlling which genes are used, when they are used and how much they are used.
Your genome is like computer hardware, the actual components that perform specific functions. Your epigenome is like software, the programs that tell the hardware which functions to perform.
Every cell in your body contains DNA — half from your mom, half from your dad. That’s your genome, the genetic blueprint that makes YOU.
Until recently, scientists believed there was little to nothing you could do to affect genes inherited from your parents.
BUT turns out you have more control than you think you do.
Within each of your cells is a higher level of complexity called the epigenome. The epigenome acts like the boss of the cell, instructing the genome which genes to turn on and off. This is why different cell types — eye cells, skin cells, liver cells, etc — can have the same DNA but perform vastly different functions. The epigenome can also determine how well a cell functions, and that’s where you come in.
Good lifestyle choices turn healthy genes on and unhealthy genes off. While bad choices do just the opposite and can lead to serious health problems.
Problem is, even when you know what you’re supposed to do — eat right, exercise, reduce stress, etc. — life sometimes gets in the way.
What if there was a simple, proven way to turn good genes on, turn bad genes off and become your best possible you?
How to improve upon the genetic code your parents left you and even pass on those healthy epigenetics to your own kids? Read on…
Lunasin – the epigenetic superfood
What is it?
A naturally occurring soy peptide.
How does it work?
Lunasin is the first nutritional compound identified to work at the epigenetic level to promote optimal health.
Epigenetics explained. Follow your DNA on an animated journey from your parents to your kids as lifestyle choices determine which genes you turn on and off.
50+ studies have shown lunasin’s many health benefits:
- Cholesterol management
- Inflammation reduction
- Antioxidant benefits
- Improved immunity
- Overall cellular health
- And the list keeps growing…
Is nutrition at a higher level
What is it?
LunaRich® from Reliv is a breakthrough nutritional ingredient that optimizes bioactive lunasin more than anything else available today.
How is it made? LunaRich is made from non-GMO soybean varieties with the highest concentration of lunasin and manufactured using proprietary technologies that help maintain the lunasin’s bioactivity — even after digestion.
You get maximum lunasin for maximum benefits.
In addition to its own proven benefits, lunasin works at the cellular level to boost the potency of other bioactive nutrients. The more lunasin, the better the results. That’s how Reliv Now and LunaRich X deliver greater benefits together than when consumed individually.
Synergism: Lunasin works in conjunction with other nutrients, each with its own effect on genes and physiological pathways. Many health problems are caused by multiple pathways and their interactions. If you disrupt these pathways with different bioactive nutrients, you can produce a more effective means of prevention.
Increased potency: Lunasin can also increase the potency or efficacy of other bioactive nutrients. For example, some nutrients are activators of important genes involved in maintaining health. Once these genes are activated, lunasin has the ability to further increase their expression by making them more readily recognized by the cell.
Think of it this way: Reliv Now is your nutritional fuel and LunaRich X is your epigenetic accelerator. Together, they tune up your body’s engine for optimal performance. In a University of Missouri study, the combination of Reliv Now and LunaRich X showed the potential to support weight loss, heart health and metabolic wellness.
