250mg Lunasin XP® Per Capsule. 150 Capsules Per Bottle.
Lunasin XP is a patented, all-natural Bioactive Soy Peptide that supports cardiovascular health. Scientific evidence indicates that Lunasin is a key component in soy protein responsible for promoting hearth health and overall cellular health. 250 mg of Lunasin XP contains the health benefits of 25 grams of soy protein.
Lunasin was first discovered in 1996 by Dr. Alfredo Galvez, Soy Labs’ leading researcher, as a result of his research to improve the nutritional profile of soy protein at the University of California, Berkeley.
Dr. Galvez realized that the soy peptide, found in small quantities in soybean seeds and soy-based foods, blocks cell division by binding to specific chromosomal proteins called “hypoacetylated histones.” As Dr. Galvez continued to study Lunasin, it became evident that the soy peptide had another powerful mechanism of action that affects cardiovascular health. Research shows Lunasin inhibits the expression of the HMG-CoA reductase gene and increases the expression of LDL-R receptor gene which increases the number of LDL-R receptors within the liver.
