"Most of the changes affecting your health don't occur in the genes themselves; they happen in the epigenetic switches," said Dr. Alfredo Galvez, Chief Scientific Advisor at SL Technology, Inc., a Reliv subsidiary.
SoyLabs Research & Projects, 28 Dec 2014 [cached]
Lunasin was first discovered in 1996 by Dr. Alfredo Galvez, Soy Labs' leading researcher, as a result of his research to improve the nutritional profile of soy protein at the University of California, Berkeley.
Dr. Galvez realized that this impressive soy peptide, which is found in small quantities in soybean seeds and soy-based foods, blocks cell division by binding to specific chromosomal proteins called "hypoacetylated histones. Because there is consistent epidemiological data regarding soy and cancer prevention, Lunasin was first investigated as a factor that might prevent cancer cells from dividing and multiplying. The mechanism of action for Lunasin and cancer prevention was included in prestigious journals, such as Nature Biotechnology and the Journal of Cancer Research. As Dr. Galvez continued to study Lunasin, it became evident that the soy peptide had another powerful mechanism of action- lowering cholesterol.

Alumni UP LB and current lead advisor for Soy Labs LLC in Missouri U.S.A., Dr. Alfredo Galvez recently gave a media talk about the Soy peptide called Lunasin, which is said to be key to having good heart health and other advantages. "In the 1990s, there were already several studies about how daily soy consumption reduced the risk of heart disease. Lunasin, which by the way, goes back to my Filipino roots, because the word Lunas means 'solution'," he says.
When from the right plants and properly processed, Lunasin can help head off heart disease by working in the liver to carry out cholesterol synthesis and produce less cholesterol, and increasing LDL receptors to help extract more cholesterol from the blood stream, and thereby prevent plaque buildup in the arteries. "Sometimes, even a healthy diet and exercise may not be enough to prevent cholesterol problems," he cautions.

Presenters will include Dr. Carl Hastings, Reliv chief scientific officer, and Dr. Alfredo Galvez, research scientist at the Center of Excellence in Nutritional Genomics at UC Davis and lead scientific advisor at the Missouri Plant Science Center (MPSC).
Galvez will present the latest lunasin research, describe the emergence of epigenetics as a new frontier in our understanding of human health and discuss the potential applications for nutritional epigenetics in the future of health care.
"No other company is advancing the field of nutritional epigenetics like Reliv," said Galvez.
Soy Myths, 23 Sept 2014 [cached]
"A growing body of research shows that the lunasin peptide is one of the most important bioactive components of soy," said Dr. Alfredo Galvez, the MPSC's lead scientific advisor. "In creating LunaRich® for Reliv, we have maximized lunasin levels in a soy powder. The amount of lunasin in soybeans varies significantly based on seed, soil and environment. The MPSC refines specially selected soybeans grown exclusively for Reliv to maximize levels of lunasin in LunaRich®.
Dr. Galvez first discovered lunasin in 1996 during research at UC Berkley to improve the nutritional profile of soy protein. More than 40 peer-reviewed and published studies have documented lunasin's health benefits. Research by 21 institutions supported by 27 public and private funding sources has resulted in nine patents.
