“Reliv’s mission is to Nourish Our World in body, mind and spirit,” explains Chairman, President and CEO Robert L. Montgomery. “For some people we provide products for optimal health. Others pursue our business opportunity part-time to help make ends meet and create a little piece of mind. And still others embrace everything that Reliv offers and commit themselves to helping others discover the same personal freedom and purpose. We welcome them all.” Bob adds that this inclusiveness is one of the great strengths of the company.

The Science Behind Reliv
Reliv makes nutrition simple. Just two shakes a day deliver a complete, balanced, optimal blend of the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, proteins and phytonutrients the body needs to thrive.
But the science behind Reliv nutrition is anything but simple. Every Reliv product brings together advanced research, leading-edge manufacturing and laboratory technologies, and rigorous scientific testing to create uniquely effective formulas unlike any in the industry.
Backed by over two decades of success, Reliv’s foundational scientific philosophy — the Reliv Difference — has proven to be a superior approach to supplementation. Combined with a commitment to stay on the forefront of advances in the field of nutrition, this approach enables every Reliv product to provide much more than the individual nutrients listed on the label, in short Reliv delivers results.
Don’t experiment with your health. Put Reliv science to work for you.

The People Behind the Science
Reliv’s product development and manufacturing programs are headed by Vice Chairman and Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Carl W. Hastings. Part of Reliv since its founding in 1988, Dr. Hastings has spent nearly 40 years in food product research and development. His pioneering work has made him a world-renowned authority on soy-based nutrition, and his commitment to innovation has produced several U.S. patents for Reliv products.
Reliv’s Scientific Advisory Board consists of renowned experts in both medical and nutritional science. Board members review research, provide feedback on specific ingredients, and recommend enhancements to Reliv formulas. In addition, the Scientific Advisory Board assists Reliv in identifying clinical studies conducted by university-based researchers, research firms and interested private physicians to examine the efficacy of key nutrients used in their formulations.
Soy Simple, Soy Healthy!
Soy is one of the cornerstones of Reliv’s product development strategy. Soy is also perhaps the most thoroughly studied nutritional ingredient in the world. Yet for all our knowledge about this powerful little bean, fascinating new discoveries are emerging all the time.
