Reliv Products FAQ
1. Does Reliv cure any cancer, diseases or other illnesses?
No. Reliv products are intended to provide balanced nutrition for a healthier lifestyle and overall wellbeing. Reliv products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Although many individuals have seen improvements in their health when consuming these products, individual results will vary.
2. Can I take Reliv if I have a medical condition?
Anyone with a medical condition should always seek the advice of a medical professional before beginning a nutritional programme. It’s also a good idea for anyone under a doctor’s care to have his/her physician evaluate Reliv products to ensure the products conform to any current dietary program.
3. I am allergic to certain foods. Can I still take Reliv?
Before starting on any nutritional programme, you should read the label to find out if there are any ingredients to which you are allergic. If you are unsure if you should consume Reliv products, you should contact your physician.
4. What is LunaRich™?
LunaRich is a Reliv-exclusive non-GMO soy powder that delivers 5-10 times more of soy's key bioactive component than ordinary soy powders. Learn more about LunaRich.
5. Can I take Reliv while I am pregnant or nursing?
We have testimonials from many women who have consumed Reliv’s nutritional products before, during and after their pregnancies and they found that the products supported them through this time. However, you should show the products to your physician for approval before starting a Reliv regimen during pregnancy.
6. How can I find out nutritional information about individual Reliv products?
The nutritional panel of every Reliv product is available online for every Reliv country. Select individual products under the "Products" tab to find out more about each product.
7. What is the shelf life of Reliv powdered nutritional products?
After the products are opened, they are effective for up to 6 months if stored with the lid on in a cool, dry place. However if not stored under these conditions the product will deteriorate more quickly. For unopened cans, the Reliv products hold a 24 month shelf life. A “best before” date is printed on the bottom of each can.
8. Are Reliv products all-natural?
Reliv products are not considered whole foods, organic or all-natural. The products are classified as dietary supplements and not food. Reliv uses both natural and synthetic ingredients, therefore the products are not considered 'whole foods'. We use synthetic ingredients to increase the potency or stability and to standardise the amount of nutrients per batch. All of the ingredients contained in the Reliv products are considered safe for human consumption by the FDA. We purchase them in powdered form from leading food ingredient companies and formulate them into finished products. Each ingredient is accompanied with a Certificate of Analysis and meets strict Reliv specifications.
9. Are Reliv products vegetarian, kosher or lactose-free?
Reliv Now® and Reliv Classic® are both vegetarian, certified Kosher and Halal, ideal for those with lactose intolerance, and contain no animal compounds, artificial preservatives or trans fat. For a list of ingredients in all Reliv products, visit reliv.com and visit the individual product listings.
10. Are Reliv products patented?
GlucAffect®, Arthaffect®, ReversAge®, FibRestore®, ProVantage® and Cellebrate® are currently under U.S. patents. The patent for Reliv Classic® issued in 1988 has since expired, as has the Innergize!® patent issued in 1994. 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.
11. 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.
12. Does Reliv source soy or any other ingredients from Monsanto?
No. Reliv has never done any business with Monsanto.
