A friend who is into some alternatives, started taking 'Reliv' & claims it is very good.  The derivative or vehicle it comes in is soy (I'm sure organic), so I'm a little skeptical as an O, but I have heard glowing testimonials even in smaller amounts than the recommended dose.  Whaddya all think?  Have any of you tried it?  What blood type is it best for?(Sounds like for A & AB, but I don't know the other ingredients.)
Cheerio!

I'm not familiar with this product.  What are all the ingredients, and what is the target audience/what is it for?


Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

I think it's a powder you add to liquid & is like a supplement.  I have heard of it for years.  It's not a vitamin/mineral, but more like a drink.  I used to think it was a v/m, but recently saw it wasn't.  I don't remember what's in it, but am curious if it is OK to try.  It's sold by MLM(multi-level marketing), which I'm not thrilled about.  I'd rahter go to the store & get something & try it.

Is there any way you can find out all the ingrediatiants especially "other" before you spend your money only to find out it contains an avoid?

I've heard of this before too. Some people swear by it. The salesperson who was given our number is very pushy. That in itself is enough to put me off.
Anyway, their website is :  http://www.reliv.com
I looked up one of their products and here is the info:
http://www.reliv.com/docs/nutritionals/USclassic.pdf

Directly over the word 'supplement" in Supplement Facts is a drop down list that you can use to make the print bigger. 125% gets it pretty big, but you CAN get it much bigger.
While the ingredients look good, I think we can get the same thing from NAP. For me, I'd rather buy my products from them and support Dr. D and all the wonderful work he does for us.       Plus w/ this product, you'd have to get out the books and check all of the supps against your BT.  With NAP products, that is already done for you.

My friends were taking Reliv and said that it was helping them. However, when I looked at the ingredients of some of the stuff, there were a lot of questionable ingredients like natural and artificial flavorings (these are nicer ways of saying MSG!!). That is a red flag for me. I think the reason it works for a lot of people is because they're finally getting the additional nutrients their body needs, but I think you can get that from almost any other product, especially from the BTD products since they are specified for different blood types. This is just my opinion. I am a purist when it comes to supplements and I would never take Reliv. I'm not saying it doesn't work, but it is not a pure product.

I just peeked. It looks like a different version of Herbalife. I tried Herbalife's protein powder a few years ago, and for the first couple days I had less stomach pain, but that didn't last. Never EVER felt as good as BTD makes me feel. Besides, the powder's first few ingredients were soy and milk products, stuff I've learned painfully to stay away from....
