Relìv International grew from the vision of founders Robert and Sandy Montgomery. They set out to establish a business that would assist people in gaining control over their own lives. The plan started from a friendship with renowned microbiologist Dr. Theodore Kalogris. Dr. Kalogris had developed a product that provided the body a full days worth of nutrition in an easy to absorb design. After experiencing amazing health benefits from this formula, Robert Montgomery realized he had a foundational product. This concept became Reliv Classic and is the corner stone of Reliv International’s quest to help people live better lives.
In 1988 Robert Montgomery brought together some seasoned business men and began the formation of the company. Their mission: to Nourish Our World. Reliv claims today to have tens of thousands of distributors globally selling the Reliv products. This fact highlights that Reliv International is some form of a pyramid or network marketing set up, where a customer buys products and tries to get others to buy in as well. This business plan becomes a separate issue to the question of – do Relives products help a person to loose weight?

At first glance Reliv Internationl and Reliv Slimpliciy seems to be a company with integrity. They have an incredibly informative and professional web site with real testimonials and real information. They do seem to be however, a multi -level marketing company which means they will try to get you involved in distributing the product for them in order to get the best price. No price is listed in the web site for the product but the business opportunity side is. MLM turn a lot of people off and can really dilute ones experience with this company. In addition they are an appetite suppression company which might have it own set of side affect. More research is advised before trying these products.
