Scientist introduces medical discovery-A A +A
Friday, September 27, 2013
A MANUFACTURER and distributor of patented nutritional supplements in 15 countries worldwide introduced to the market its new product -- LunaRich X, a premium nutritional supplement which is the most pure and concentrated form of Lunasin, a naturally occurring peptide discovered by Filipino research scientist Dr. Alfredo Galvez.
Reliv International introduced LunaRich X, which was named winner in the People's Choice Stevie award for favorite new consumer product during the 11 Annual American Business Awards.
Galvez was in Bacolod City yesterday for a short visit and gave presentations to doctors and professionals on Lunasin, a novel health ingredient and a major breakthrough in epigenetics and cancer research.
Galvez is gaining attention and recognition in the US for the Lunasin technology.
He discovered Lunasin at UC Berkeley in 1996 and his years of research and studies have shown its significant effect in disease prevention and ability to block cancer pathways.
Lunasin is making history and receiving anecdotal evidence on its numerous health benefits from anti-cancer, anti-inflammation, cholesterol reduction, lowering of insulin resistance and diabetes control.
Recently, Galvez and his team was able to develop a formulation that allows Lunasin to retain its bioactivity even when ingested, therefore, maximizing its effect in gene expression to promote optimal health at the epigenetic level.
This will actually be the second visit of Galvez in Bacolod. He provides significant information about the latest advancements in cholesterol management, cancer research and about Lunasin which is becoming more and more popular in the US.
He also gives interesting perspective on how a Filipino scientist like him is playing a significant role in the field of epigenetics.
