We Take Nutrition Science Seriously
Our scientists combine advanced research, leading-edge manufacturing and laboratory technologies, and rigorous testing to create uniquely effective formulas. This commitment to quality and innovation permeates everything we do.
We are a respected member of the US Council for Responsible Nutrition and we have received strong endorsements from thought leaders throughout the nutritional world. We continue to push the envelope in new and exciting ways and actively seek out undiscovered possibilities for advanced nutritional solutions.
Reliv’s foundational scientific philosophy — the Reliv Difference — aims to support people in their daily lives through nutrition. A commitment to stay on the cutting edge enables every Reliv product to provide much more than the individual nutrients listed on the label – they support people in their quest to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.
Reliv's Founding Scientists
For more than 30 years, Reliv has worked with the top scientists and doctors in America to provide the best nutritional products available. It all started with one formula that would make changes around the world. Dr Theodore "Ted" Kalogris created the company's first patented core nutrition formula: Reliv Classic®.
"Be ashamed to die until you have scored a victory for mankind," Dr Ted's father advised him when he was still young, a motto that inspired Dr Ted to start on a mission to help combat hunger. It was this vision and drive that would later inspire the creation of the Reliv Kalogris Foundation — a non-profit organisation dedicated to providing nutrition to those who need it most.
Dr Carl W. Hastings joined Reliv shortly after its founding in 1998 and was honoured for his role in developing research capabilities that help produce groundbreaking scientific products, as well as his role in strengthening Reliv's reputation for innovation. He developed a comprehensive line of nutritional products and earned nine product patents.
Reliv's Uncompromising Commitment to Quality
For more than 30 years, Reliv has stood for quality nutrition and an uncompromising commitment to producing the safest, purest, and what we believe to be the most effective nutritional products available. In fact, our manufacturing standards exceed those of some of the strictest regulatory agencies in the world. It's all part of something we call The Reliv Difference.
How do we do it? By following a meticulous process for every single product that comes off our line.
Step 1: Select ingredients
Reliv selects only the best ingredients based on the latest research. Every ingredient must come with a Certificate of Analysis documenting it has been independently tested and meets Reliv’s industry-leading standards.
Step 2: Confirm outside testing
Reliv scientists independently verify our suppliers’ analyses. Only when ingredients meet established standards do we release them to be used in Reliv formulas.
Step 3: Prepare formula
Quality assurance specialists triple-check each batch for absolute accuracy.
Step 4: Run Production
After technicians blend ingredients and test samples, line operators pull random cans for additional quality checks. State-of-the-art machinery verifies proper labelling, weight fills, can integrity, seal strength and product purity.
Step 5: Conduct Final Quality Check
Reliv scientists conduct complete microbiological and ingredient testing — the last step before product release.
Step 6: Ship Products to You
The most important part of the process — you experience the benefits and quality of life that we believe can be achieved through our nutritional products.
