Our joints are the center of every move we make. But according to the CDC (i.e. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is the leading national public health institute of the United States.), more than 90 million Americans report some type of joint problems. These joint issues make it difficult to maintain an active lifestyle — whether you’re a world-class athlete or simply finding it harder to move freely as you age.
Fortunately, science has discovered an array of nutrients that contribute to joint health. You could mix and match bottles of vitamin pills. Or, you can get optimal levels of more than 20 powerful ingredients in one convenient, highly absorbable Arthaffect® shake. No other joint performance formula comes close.

Why do Reliv’s premium nutritional formulas work when other supplements don’t?
We call it the Reliv Difference:
The body can only use nutrients that it can readily absorb. Reliv’s shakes and other specially designed products give the body instant access to the nutrients they contain, providing greater benefit from each serving.
Many vitamins and minerals only perform at their best when combined with other nutrients. Vitamin D helps with the absorption of calcium… vitamin C powers up vitamin E. This is called synergism, and it’s the foundation behind every Reliv formula.
Reliv goes beyond the minimum daily requirements to follow the standard of optimal nutrition, developed by researchers who have shown that higher levels of key nutrients are essential to good health and well-being.
Guaranteed Quality Ingredients
Our ingredients come from the most reputable suppliers and undergo rigorous testing when they first enter our plant, and again at each step in the manufacturing process. And because we own our manufacturing facility, we are able to ensure product purity and potency in every can – guaranteed.
This approach to nutrition, combined with a passion for innovation, enables every Reliv product to provide much more than the individual nutrients listed on the label – Reliv delivers results.

- Why do Reliv products contain soy?
Studies continue to illustrate the many benefits of soy as a superfood:
- A study shows that consumption of a wide variety of soy products is associated with reducing the risk of developing the lung disease COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and other respiratory symptoms.
- The flavonoids in soy foods may act as an anti-inflammatory agent in the lung.
- Soy isoflavones can lower diabetes and heart disease risk.
- Eating soy foods has been shown to lower cholesterol, decrease blood glucose levels and improve glucose tolerance in people with diabetes.

In order for an invention to be patented, the U.S. patent laws provide that it must (A) have utility and (B) be novel and non-obvious over the prior art.
The U.S. Patent Office substantively examines patent applications to ensure that patents are issued only for inventions that satisfy these legal criteria.Reliv also holds two lunasin-related patents:
- A patent on lunasin’s mechanism of action for reducing LDL cholesterol in the body.
- A composition of matter patent on Reliv’s LunaRich technology as it relates to its superior ability to deliver bioactive lunasin to the body.
- Why does it say “proprietary blend” on the supplements facts section of my Reliv product label?
The term “proprietary blend” refers to our secret recipe of optimum ingredients. Dr. Theodore Kalogris and Dr. Carl Hastings spent years perfecting optimal mixtures of ingredients in Reliv products. These mixtures are what make our products effective. The mixtures make our products unique, so we call them proprietary.
The problem: modern diets have created epidemic rates of serious health problems. The solution: Reliv nutrition.

“I’m the kind of guy who needs proof,” says Rob Frick of Otis, CO. At 47 years old, Rob had already undergone one knee surgery. Wear and tear from martial arts and working in law enforcement, truck driving and on his wife’s family-owned farm had taken a toll. By winter 2012, he could barely walk and his knees hurt so much it woke him up at night.
That’s when Rob decided to give Reliv a try. “I was skeptical, but in two weeks I was walking with normal strides,” he says. “I use several Reliv products, including the LunaRich line. That plus Arthaffect® has made the difference with my knees.”
Rob no longer struggles to climb up into his equipment when he works, and his new-found energy allows him to spend more time with his family of 10. For Rob, that’s more than enough evidence: “I’ve been involved with health and nutrition companies before, but I’ve never seen anything that works as well as these LunaRich products.”
Knee surgery: I have been enjoying my Reliv nutritional regimen of Reliv Now, Innergize! FibRestore, Arthaffect and ReversAge consistently every day for 18 months. I’m 63 years old and I recently underwent an arthroscopy on both sides of the knee for a medial meniscus tear. When the nurses took my blood pressure and heart rate they were impressed, saying my results were close to those of a 20 year old! My explanation – I look after myself and take Reliv nutritional supplements.
Speedy recovery: After the arthroscopy I was so pleased with my recovery, which appeared to be much better than the other people having the same procedure. I had no swelling, experienced no pain and didn’t even require crutches. Four days later all I needed was a sleeve over the knee to protect the wound and I was walking without a limp, which I never expected.
Having recently sold and retired from the pizza shop I started in 1975, I’m looking forward to spending more time with my family and enjoying my hobbies whilst feeling great with Reliv nutrition! I’m keeping active with swimming twice a week and I jog or bike ride each morning for 30 minutes. When meeting people of my age I find it easy to share Reliv with them. When they see the energy and enthusiasm I still have for life, people always want to know more!
Adelaide, South Australia
Deteriorating health: I’m a registered nurse from South Australia. Returning back home from living in the Middle East for 26 years, I noticed my health had generally deteriorated. I was experiencing aches and pains all over, had reflux and was lacking energy. My sister introduced me to the Reliv products. I’ve been taking the products for seven years now and my health has really bounced back.
Top nutrition: I had previously supplemented my diet with multivitamin tablets but found they were not effective. With Reliv powdered nutrition, I know I’m receiving the full benefits with the combination of vitamins, minerals, protein and herbs, I’m full of energy, I feel like I’m in my thirties and I will take the products forever!
Libby Kroezen was spending a lot of her time and money at the health food stores before she heard about Reliv. A bad car accident twenty-five years ago left her with back problems that made working impossible. Surgery was looking likely and the arthritis that had also set in made daily living even more challenging.
“I’m really a kid at heart,” Libby says. “But I couldn’t pick up my grandkids and throw them up in the air like I wanted to. I couldn’t do any of the things I like to do, like riding carnival rides, playing baseball, volleyball and basketball.”
Libby heard about Reliv on the local radio and called immediately to find out more. Five months after starting the products, she reports she was feeling great.

“I want to spend as much time as I can with my children and grandchildren. This is what retirement means for me. I go swimming with my family, I joined a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, participated in my grandson’s birthday trip to Legoland, and I go on road trips with my loved ones.
If it weren’t for Reliv, I don’t think I could enjoy all of these life luxuries. Ten years ago, I was suffering from painful arthritis and was feeling tired all the time. My blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure were unmanageable and in high levels. Ever since I started taking Reliv, I have felt healthier, younger and stronger. I feel good about myself because of my decisions to take control and do something about my overall health.”
Davao City, Philippines
“I used to feel numbness in my fingers whenever I held objects like a pen, telephone or newspaper. I also experienced pain that radiated from my fingers to my upper arms especially after a forceful or repetitive use of my hands.
Then in 2007, I was diagnosed with cervical spondylosis, a condition caused by wearing away of the cervical spine. I couldn’t move my neck, right arm, leg and ankle. Even the slightest tilt caused excruciating pain. I underwent physical therapy but remained in great pain and had to wear a neck brace for support. I thought there was no more hope for my condition until I was introduced to Reliv. After regularly taking the products, I started enjoying increase in energy level, quality sleep and revitalized feeling. I feel younger and healthier more than ever! I’m so glad that I took the healthy road with Reliv!”
Makati City, Philippines
“I was only 28 years old when my weight tipped the scales at 185 pounds and my waistline was 38 inches. I became very conscious of my looks especially because I was playing in a band and performed in big crowds. Due to my excess weight, I suffered from lower back pain that limited my day-to-day activities. The pain worsened every time the weather or room temperature changes.
After regularly taking Reliv, I started losing weight and shed off nine pounds in a month’s time. After a year of taking the products, I lost 16 more pounds and five inches off my waistline. And, today, my back pain is a thing of the past. The products really work!”
Nina Limjoco with husband Louie
Lucena City, Philippines
“I took maintenance medication for more than five years to address my elevated cholesterol that made me hypertensive. On top of that, I also had a fatty liver and suffered from frequent migraine attacks and joint pains. Needless to say, I needed something to help improve my health but I was skeptic about taking nutritional supplements.
This way of thinking reversed when I started noticing significant improvements in my health after I decided to give Reliv a try. After taking the products, my blood sugar and cholesterol levels stabilized. I became more curious and interested in the products and continued taking the Reliv shakes every day. It’s amazing because my blood pressure has resumed to a normal level.”
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
During his younger years, Steven Koh of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, was very active in judo and the martial arts. Unfortunately, a variety of health issues came up. Steven says, I had a stiff neck, back pain, muscle cramps, arthritis, and severely dry skin.
My friend was very persistent and eventually I was convinced and started on the products. It didn’t take long to start noticing results.
I felt a significant increase in energy right away, especially at the gym, Steven says. My neck was now more flexible and I had full range of motion. My abdomen and back were as good as new. The dry, cracking skin on my fingers and elbows cleared up, and my tummy disappeared. At last, the middle-age spread was gone!
Now Steven’s entire family is on the products and they are all very healthy.
