Lopez has had an illustrious career. As an LPGA professional, she has won 48 events, three of which were major championships. In 1978, she was named LPGA Rookie of the Year, LPGA Player of the Year, and was awarded the Vare Trophy, which is given to the player with the lowest scoring average. Lopez was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1987 and has long been considered one of the greatest players in the history of women's golf.

Lopez is involved in a wide variety of charitable endeavors, serves on the LPGA Foundation Board, and continues to be active on the LPGA Legends Tour, which showcases the talents of some of the greatest women golfers of all time. In addition, Lopez, through Nancy Lopez Golf Inc., has a line of golf clubs and golf apparel for women.

An active schedule, such as Lopez's, can take its toll physically. "Like many athletes who have pushed themselves to their limits, I was feeling the wear and tear from years of playing," said Lopez. "After learning about Anatabloc® from a PGA tour player, I decided to try it myself because I knew that I was experiencing discomfort as a result of inflammation. After about four weeks of using Anatabloc® I felt like a new person. I noticed that I had less tightness in my joints when I got out of bed in the morning. I love Anatabloc®. I look forward to getting up everyday and being active."

David Dean, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Star Scientific, stated, "We are so proud to have Nancy as part of the Anatabloc® team.  She is a world-class athlete with a genuine interest in Anatabloc®.  We were honored when Nancy reached out to our company and shared her positive experience regarding the impact Anatabloc® has had on her life, and we look forward to working with her to spread the word to people around the world about the benefits that Anatabloc® can have in contributing to an active and healthy lifestyle."
