Filipino doctor makes astounding discovery

Dr. Alfredo Galvez, PhD has discovered the secret to turning on the good genes in your body! He has proven that we have more control over our genes than we may have thought.

The Filipino research scientist, who has a PhD in Genetics from the University of California, Davis, a BSc and MSc degrees in Genetics and Plant Physiology from the University of Philippines, has discovered lunasin; a component in soy that has the ability to turn “off” the bad genes and turn “on” the good genes in our bodies. This is known as epigenetics — a breakthrough in nutritional science.

Raised in San Fernando, Philippines, Dr. Galvez, whose passion is finding natural solutions to serious health problems and making them affordable to all mankind, discovered lunasin in 1996. The super-food, a naturally-occurring component, is responsible for many of soy’s documented health benefits.

Dr. Galvez is ecstatic over the success of his discovery and its significant contribution to the advancements in food science. There are more than 50 published papers from more than 25 research institutions on lunasin.

Today, Galvez is Chief Scientific Officer of Soy Labs, whose joint research-and-development partnership with Reliv has given the latter access to soy and plant biotechnology research, as well as exclusive ingredient innovations like Reliv’s LunarichTM.

Dr. Galvez also worked with Reliv International to produce LunaRich X™, the most pure and concentrated lunasin supplement ever produced and is now available in Australia. LunaRich X™ was named winner of the People’s Choice Stevie Award for Favourite New Consumer Product during the 11th Annual American Business Awards.

Dr. Galvez will be doing a free public seminar in Sydney next month on 2ndMay to share his breakthrough discovery, lunasin, and its ability to promote optimal health at the epigenetic level.
