Our Food Is Leaving Us Empty
Food is not what it used to be. Several studies have shown a significant reduction in the micronutrient content of many fruits and vegetables over the course of the 20th century. The average vegetable found in today’s supermarket is anywhere from 5% to 40% lower in selected minerals than those harvested 50 years ago.

The Perfect Opportunity

President & CEO of SL Technology, Inc., a Reliv company

As an entrepreneur, I understand the need to innovate. My 20+ years in the nutrition industry have taught me that market leaders must innovate or be consumed by the global marketplace. I’ve also learned that innovation is not the result of chance; it is the result of action.

Creating an Innovation Engine
In 2001 I partnered with Dr. Alfredo Galvez to expand his work with the lunasin peptide he discovered in 1996. In 2005 I founded Soy Labs, LLC and assembled a team which included Dr. Galvez to focus on commercializing lunasin-based ingredients. Collaboration is key to long-term business success, so I sought out business and research partners that allowed Soy Labs to leverage creativity, experience and resources and innovate more quickly.

Adopting the open innovation model allowed Soy Labs to draw on the knowledge of outside researchers and move forward with lunasin technology. This access to external resources inspired us to partner with the University of Missouri, the state of Missouri and federal government to create the Missouri Plant Science Center in 2010. The MPSC was a critical component to further our research, refine our processes and firmly establish Soy Labs as an “innovation engine.” Continue reading “The Perfect Opportunity”

Understanding Epigenetics

The field of epigenetics is new and growing, but you don’t have to be a scientist to understand the basics. Here are some simple analogies to explain how epigenetics works on the cellular level.

Pencil

Who you are is written in both pen and pencil. Things written in pen you can’t change. That’s DNA. But things written in pencil you can. That’s epigenetics.

Lightbulb

The epigenome acts like a dimmer for lights, controlling which genes are used, when they are used and how much they are used.

Computer
Your genome is like computer hardware, the actual components that perform specific functions. Your epigenome is like software, the programs that tell the hardware which functions to perform.

“No other company is advancing the field of epigenetics like Reliv. We are in the middle of a revolution in nutrition and we are all witnesses.”
– Dr. Alfredo Galvez, the Center of Excellence in Nutrition Genomics at UC Davis
