The Cholesterol Connection To Heart Health - Vitamin Retailer Magazine [cached]

Interestingly, pointed out Dr. Alfredo Galvez, chief scientific advisor at Missouri-based SL Technology (a Reliv company), a majority of the mass marketing for cholesterol management is from pharmaceutical companies, therefore many individuals associate cholesterollowering treatments with prescription medicines over dietary supplements.

"The most compelling result of recent clinical trials on cholesterol management is that the only significant causal association between cholesterol lowering and reducing risk for CVD is by treatment with statin drugs," explained Galvez.
Reliv International's LunaRich products, said Galvez, "are the only nutritional products on the market that have a similar mechanism of action to that of statin drugs.

Alfredo F. Galvez, Ph.D.

Project Scientist, Center of Excellence for Nutritional Genomics, University of California, Davis, CA Chief Scientific Officer, SL Technology, Inc., Chesterfield, MO
Alfredo F. Galvez, Ph.D. is currently the Chief Scientific Officer of SL Tech, Inc., a Reliv subsidiary company, working on the development of functional foods and nutraceutical ingredients based on the lunasin peptide, a soy protein component he serendipitously discovered in 1996 as a postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley. He has a PhD in Genetics from UC Davis, majoring in molecular biology and cytogenetics. He is also a Project Scientist at the Center for Nutritional Genomics, University of California at Davis, working on elucidating the molecular mechanism of lunasin as a peptidomimetic of a human tumor suppressor.
Dr. Galvez earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Genetics and Plant Physiology from the University of the Philippines at Los Banos, and his Ph.D. in Genetics from the University of California, Davis. After completing his Ph.D., Dr. Galvez worked for the USDA-ARS at Washington State University and at the University of California Berkeley as a Research Biochemist and Geneticist.

A naturally-occurring soy peptide, discovered by UC Berkely scientist Dr. Alfredo Galvez in 1996 as a result of his research to improve the nutritional profile of soy protein.

Further research by Alfredo F. Galvez sought to prove that lunasin is the active agent in soy responsible for these benefits. Dr. Galvez produced a lunasin extract that is 100-200 times more potent than typical a soy isolate. Dr. Galvez's research proved lunasin to be responsible for the LDL cholesterol lowering benefit associated with soy.

Reliv International, a maker of nutritional supplements that promote optimal health, recently announced that the Commonwealth of Australia Patents Office has issued a Certificate of Patent to Dr. Alfredo Galvez, chief scientific officer at SL Technology, Inc., a Reliv company. The patent protects Galvez's discovery establishing the lunasin peptide as the component of soy protein that improves specific blood markers associated with cardiovascular health.

"This patent is the latest recognition of the cutting-edge research being conducted by Dr. Galvez and his team," said Dr. Carl W. Hastings, Reliv vice chairman and chief scientific officer.
Galvez has been awarded similar patents in the United States and China. Patent applications are also pending in eight other international markets. Galvez currently holds eight patents surrounding his research related to the lunasin peptide.
About Lunasin
Galvez first discovered lunasin in 1996 during research at UC Berkley to improve the nutritional profile of soy protein.
