Deborah Lapatina suffered from chronic health issues that many people feel hopeless about, including candida, chronic fatigue and blood sugar imbalances.In her personal path to recovery, she was led to Reliv and, after three months of using this product, actually feels joy about her body. While Reliv doesn't make health claims, Lapatina has provided information about its use for this article.

Reliv International Inc. offers a line of nutritional food products that's unique — it's the only food product that carries a U.S. patent for six of its formulations.

The study is on file there, and health professionals can write to WHO for copies (see
