HPDI’s Complete, High-RNA, High-Protein, Sweet-Green Superfood
Creates and Maintains Powerful Health
Supports Regeneration,Vitality, and Healing!
REJUVENATE!™ PLUS is a complete, high-RNA, high-protein, sweet green superfood. It is uniquely designed to provide all the nutrients you need to thrive, including high-quality protein, essential fats, vitamins (including a coenzyme form B complex), minerals, great-tasting green foods, and high-potency nucleic acids (RNA/DNA), nucleotides, nucleosides, and nucleic acid precursors (e.g., d-ribose) that build powerful health.
The effectiveness of dietary nucleic acids for creating powerful health relates directly to the fact that they are critically involved in many bodily processes, especially relating to energy production and communication within cells (i.e., they enable cells to use energy effectively for greater health). In the cell nucleus, RNA carries out instructions coded in DNA—instructions containing information critical for cell structure and function—which are essential for the very lives of our cells, and thereby for our lives.
REJUVENATE!™ PLUS is the first complete, high-RNA superfood providing total nutrition. HPDI introduced the original high-RNA superfood (Rejuvenate!™) in 2006. We now proudly introduce the world’s first complete, high-RNA formula designed to support total body rejuvenation. Scientific research points to many advantages and benefits to consuming a complete high-RNA formula that leverages the synergy produced when nucleic acids are consumed in combination with nutrients that maximize the capacities of the body to utilize them for purposes of attaining optimal health.
When our cells receive proper directions and energy to carry them out, they keep us youthful. In addition, the role of nucleic acids in energy production (i.e., energy as ATP) in the body means they play a fundamental role in providing the energy required by the body for all processes of rejuvenation, regeneration, and healing. When the body is provided with high levels of nucleic acids plus proper levels of the other nutrients it needs for abundant health, then it has the means to rejuvenate itself naturally. REJUVENATE!™ PLUS provides all the nutrients the body needs to support rejuvenation and the restoration of characteristics relating to youthfulness. Indeed, REJUVENATE!™ PLUS is a culmination of years designing and developing effective, therapeutic, high-RNA superfoods. The uniquely synergistic combination of total nutrition and great taste powerfully supports and maintains optimal health, boosts and sustains energy levels, and rejuvenates the whole body...in ways you have never experienced. In fact, REJUVENATE!™ PLUS is the high-RNA superfood you have been waiting for!
REJUVENATE!™ PLUS is designed as the ultimate superfood formula for rejuvenation of the whole body. It provides users with many health benefits not commonly experienced by consuming foods and nutritional supplements. It is possible to experience true rejuvenation! In fact, REJUVENATE!™ PLUS is so greatly effective at rejuvenating the body that it is a cornerstone of the HPDI Master Rejuvenation Program. Once you try it, you can experience for yourself its amazing rejuvenating effects. Many individuals are gaining health benefits and achieving results that confirm what pioneering scientists and doctors (such as Dr. Benjamin S. Frank) discovered during years of research: the combination of nucleic acids and optimal nutrition makes you feel and look younger. Discover REJUVENATE!™ PLUS and gain proven benefits that allow you to rejuvenate yourself. You thereby can reverse processes leading to premature aging, less than optimal health, and reduced quality of life. In fact, you can regenerate, renew, restore, revitalize, and recreate vastly higher level of health! REJUVENATE!™ PLUS is the ideal superfood that will most effectively support your efforts to create and maintain powerful health, as well as supply your body with the nutrients it needs to heal itself.
The processes of rejuvenation facilitated by the combination of the optimal intake of nucleic acids and solid core nutrition provided by REJUVENATE!™ PLUS are hardly superficial. Instead, externally evident effects of rejuvenation (e.g., greater energy and endurance, increased lung capacity, younger looking skin, etc.), reflects deep internal changes in the body that begin within cells and ultimately extend to the vibrant health of the entire body. Nucleic acid nutrition is all about building the best possible health, and maintaining it to assure longevity and the highest quality of life! REJUVENATE!™ PLUS provides the highest levels of nucleic acids and supernutrition that best supports the process of rejuvenation in your life! We have intentionally designed the ultimate superfood formula for rejuvenation. Now you can leverage the health-building power of REJUVENATE!™ PLUS for yourself...and create powerful health for vibrant living!
REJUVENATE!™ PLUS offers the huge advantage of superb taste! While the health advantages it providesare amazing in themsevles, the fact that this powerful superfood tastes so good makes building health a true pleasure! We are certain that you will enjoy the delicious, smooth taste of our naturally sweet green superfood. It is a lighter shade of green than our original high-RNA formula, and offers a subtly sweet taste with overtones of vanilla and delicate fruitiness. You will find it pleasing, light, and smooth. It mixes especially well in smoothies, fruit juices, vegetable juices, and in plain water. There is nothing else like REJUVENATE!™ PLUS because no other superfood combines a complete formula with therapeutically high levels of nucleic acids (RNA/DNA) expressely designed to promote optimal health by supporting whole body rejuvenation from the inside-out. Enjoy all these healthy benefits...plus amazingly good taste, too!

REJUVENATE!™ PLUS is unique because while it provides the high levels of RNA/DNA found in original REJUVENATE!™ high-RNA superfood, it includes many other ingredients that make it one of the most well-balanced, all-purpose superfoods ever developed. These ingredients per serving include 12 grams of protein from a variety of plant sources (including organic hemp, organic vegetable sprouts, chlorella, spirulina, alfalfa, and rice), powerful antioxidants (ORAC of 6,300+ units), multivitamin subformula that includes a coenzyme B-complex, good-tasting nutrients from organic cherry and vanilla flavoring, powerful prebiotics, taste enhancers (including d-ribose, inulin, xylitol, mannitol, and stevia), an enzyme complex, lecithin (oil free, high phosphatide, from sunflower seeds), and a standardized 200:1 organic aloe vera complex. Dr. Hank Liers of HPDI has designed the ultimate nutritional superfood for those who desire the very highest levels of complete nutrition from the very best ingredients, and a taste that is second to none...that in fact is specifically designed to taste better than any superfood available!
These completeness of the ingredients in REJUVENATE!™ PLUS distinguish it fully from all predecessors, including superfoods in our own REJUVENATE™ line. Indeed, its completeness (and purity) points to a superior design that places REJUVENATE!™ PLUS highest among the leading superfoods available to consumers. The health benefits that may be achieved by consuming this formula therefore can be expected to be correspondingly greater, largely because of its therapeutic levels of nucleic acids, high nutrient density, and its complete and unique profile of macronutrients and micronutrients. Then, too, you will be amazed by its great taste and smooth palatability. As you can see, REJUVENATE!™ PLUS holds a special place within our REJUVENATE™ line...for it is the light, sweet green superfood packing an amazing amount of complete, well-balanced nutrition into every serving. High levels of total nutrition make the difference between REJUVENATE!™ PLUS and superfoods that cannot effectively support rejuvenation. Our unique approach to total nutrition is the difference you will notice when you look in the mirror and that others will see in your vibrant glow. But most importantly, it is the difference you will feel inside...that will give a lively spring to your step, naturally!
Beyond its delicious taste and high nutrient density, a single serving of REJUVENATE!™ PLUS actually includes most of the foundational ingredients contained in our popular REJUVENATE!™ (original greens). That is, REJUVENATE!™ PLUS contains proven ingredients, including chlorella, d-ribose, nutritional yeast, cold-milled flax seed powder (instead of chia seeds to allow greater smoothness), rice bran solubles, spirulina, Vitamin C, chlorella growth factor (CGF), magnesium, dulse, yeast RNA, folinic acid, and methylcobalamin (Vitamin B12). Thus, REJUVENATE!™ PLUS builds upon the foundation established by our original REJUVENATE!™ and yet takes the entire line to a new level that is both more advanced and unique in terms of providing total nutrition. So, while REJUVENATE!™ PLUSis firmly rooted in the tradition of nucleic acid nutrition and therapy that inspires the design of our entireline of superfoods, this unique formula is the most complete formula in terms of total nutrition. It is designed especially to support a full nutrition program (or a rejuvenation program such as HPDI’s Master Rejuvenation Program) aimed at creating, building, restoring, regenerating, renewing, and maintaining optimal health, as well as completely “rejuvenating” body, mind, and spirit. All you need to remember is that REJUVENATE!™ PLUS is “the formula” that is best designed to support your personal rejuvenation program...and to take it every day for best results!
REJUVENATE!™ PLUSis in powder form (like our other superfood formulas). It tastes great by itself with water, fruit and vegetable juices, or mixed in smoothies or blender drinks with fruits, nuts, berries, and/or grain or nut milks. REJUVENATE!™ PLUS is convenient and easy to use by itself and in a wide variety of smoothies, juices, blender drinks, as well as in your favorite foods! Use your imagination! The sky is the limit in terms of the creative ways you can use it. See our Recipes page for more ideas!
REJUVENATE!™ PLUSoffers at least a three-year shelf life when kept in a cool, dry place. When refrigerated or kept in the freezer, its freshness can extend even longer. Because of its great stability (partly due to high levels of natural antioxidants that help keep it fresh for long periods) and its portability, REJUVENATE!™ PLUSis an ideal food to take along while traveling or camping, and for family outings, vacations, or day trips. It is also convenient to consume at work, school, or when participating in sports—to ensure high nutrition for sustained energy for optimal physical and mental function—especially whenever nutritious, fresh foods may not be available (or when facilities or time to prepare them is lacking). Let REJUVENATE!™ PLUS be your portable, take-anywhere, “on-the-go” superfood to keep you nourished and energized all day long!
In addition, REJUVENATE!™ PLUS makes a superb emergency preparedness food that you may stock in case of catastrophic events (e.g., earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, etc.). During a natural disaster, for example, conventional foods may not be accessible, and easily perishable foods are not viable options for health or survival, especially if an emergency event or disaster persists for an extended period. While natural disasters and other crises are never welcome, during such events REJUVENATE!™ PLUS can provide the nutrition needed to sustain good health. REJUVENATE!™ PLUS uniquely combines superior nutrition with great portability, product stability, and long shelf-life that together make an ideal emergency superfood that can help keep you and your family nourished, healthy, prepared, and “ready for anything”!
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ABOUT REJUVENATE!™ PLUS
REJUVENATE!™ PLUS is designed to provide high levels of nucleic acids, including RNA, DNA, nucleotides, and nucleosides. Modern western diets can be deficient in nucleic acids, at least relative to many traditional diets. Food sources of nucleic acids include certain fish, organ meats, beans, yeast, and various food algae. In general, foods high in purines contain above average levels of nucleic acids. In comparison to most fish and organ meats, muscle meats (e.g., beef, chicken, pork, etc.) are relatively deficient in nucleic acids. Moreover, while certain vegetables (beans, asparagus, spinach) and vegetable soups provide reasonably high levels of nucleic acids, most vegetables do not. Because modern western diets typically depend heavily on muscle meats (and thereby deemphasize organ meats), processed foods, and foods produced via industrial agriculture, nucleic acid intake generally is quite low (relative to traditional diets), and continues to decline, except when certain foods or supplements are added to the diet. For example, the Japanese consume higher amounts of spirulina and chlorella; the British consume a yeast extract known as “Marmite” and the Australians consume “Vegemite,” etc. Moreover, many fish-eating cultures are known for health and longevity. Many researchers have concluded that higher levels of health among fish-eating peoples not only relates to increased intake of essential fats, but also relates to higher intake of nucleic acids.
Nucleic acids are involved in many bodily processes, especially energy production and communication within cells (i.e., they enable cells to use energy effectively for greater health). In the cell nucleus, RNA carries out instructions coded in DNA—instructions containing information critical for cell structure and function—which are essential for the very lives of our cells, and thereby for our lives. When our cells receive proper directions and energy to carry them out, they keep us youthful.
In the 1960s and 1970s, the molecular biologist Dr. Benjamin S. Frank pioneered dietary nucleic acid therapy [through nutrition] using yeast extracts and fish, especially sardines. He wrote several books regarding his studies, including Dr. Frank’s No-Aging Diet: Eat and Grow Younger (1976), a bestseller that popularized the so-called “fish diet.” Dr. Frank’s experiments with high-RNA diets showed that increased dietary intake of nucleic acids produced marked improvements in health both in specific conditions, as well as in general health and vitality.
Dr. Frank’s studies of animals fed high-RNA diets, and his experience with human subjects, showed many beneficial effects. The effects indicate that dietary nucleic acids (i.e., nucleic acids in the diet and through dietary supplementation) can be useful adjuncts in protocols for a wide variety of conditions. Among the beneficial effects Dr. Frank recorded were increased growth (especially muscle growth), greater endurance; positive effects on the cardiovascular system; greater lung capacity and easier breathing (i.e., better oxygen utilization); higher tolerance for temperature extremes (cold and hot); smoother skin and a more youthful appearance; greater vitality and longevity (in experimental animals compared to controls).
Dr. Frank’s human subjects also showed many positive effects, including increased energy levels, greater endurance, improved muscle strength, easier breathing, lowered cholesterol levels, beneficial cardiovascular effects, blood sugar stabilization, improved vision, and a more youthful appearance.
In his books, Dr. Frank addresses how nucleic acids can dramatically increase cellular energy. Nucleic acids boost energy levels in the body is by significantly increasing production of the “high-energy” molecule ATP (adenosine triphosphate). The body requires the energy from ATP for many purposes, including for repairing, healing, metabolism, digestion, building a strong immune system, and other processes.
In the 1980s and 1990s, Dr. Bernard Jensen extensively studied chlorella, especially as a source of nucleic acids. Dr. Jensen was aware of Dr. Frank’s work on nucleic acids, but also realized that Dr. Frank had no knowledge of chlorella. Dr. Jensen suggested that Dr. Frank would have been greatly interested in chlorella, due to the fact that it contains approximately ten times more RNA per gram than sardines. Chlorella’s profile of nucleic acids differs from that of sardines, but the effects of dietary consumption remain quite similar (see below). Because chlorella is a highly concentrated source of nucleic acids, relatively small quantities are required to produce therapeutic effects in the body.
The pioneering work of Dr. Frank and Dr. Jensen has provided a scientific and clinical basis for pursuing development of nutritional formulas that leverage the power of dietary nucleic acids for greater health and well-being.
NUCLEIC ACIDS ARE ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS,
According to Pioneer RNA Researcher, Dr. Benjamin S. Frank
“A point of major importance that has not been mentioned or stressed with sufficient force by the author...is that nucleic acids have been considered for some time by him as essential nutrients of human beings, as distinct from merely accessory but non-essential factors in nutrition.
“Because of the clear and marked beneficial effects of the nucleic acids, the author here states pointedly that nucleic acids and nucleotides are an essential dietary category just as are vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. Nutritionists and others have often asserted that the body can make its own nucleic acids ‘de novo.’ This is true to a point.
“Consequently they insist that nucleic acids are not needed in the diet. This of course presupposes the body can and will make all that it needs. This latter point, has never been proven by nutritionists. It is merely an unsupported belief in an area of massive and criticial importance. In view of all the author’s cases, and they number thousands, if their bodies could really make (and repair) their own nucleic acids so readily, it would be then very important to ask why exogenous nucleic acids do them so much good, even in relatively small amounts.
“Indeed, the response to nucleic acids in old people, for example, who are tired, or in boxers given nucleic acid rich broth before they fight, would hardly matter. Instead, the response is unequivocal in both sorts of cases, the abnormal and the clearly normal. Nucleic acids clearly energize people...in the way metabolism optimally evolved does. The anti-anoxia effect, the increase in the ability to tolerate extreme temperatures, etc., are all manifestations of the actions of nucleic acids.
Clearly, if nucleic acids were not needed, the established dogma of orthodox nutrition with its vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and minerals would clearly better help people with most of their degenerative conditions.” (Dr. Frank’s Nucleic Acid Nutrition and Therapy 116–117)
REJUVENATE!™ PLUS IS A UNIQUE MEMBER OF THE REJUVENATE!™ LINE OF SUPERFOODS
“LIGHTER, CREAMIER, SUBTLY GREEN...WITH TASTY VANILLA FLAVOR!”
REJUVENATE!™ PLUS is lighter green and subtly sweeter than our popular REJUVENATE!™ (original greens). Our initial design for REJUVENATE!™ PLUS developed as a result of requests for a more subtle, smooth, and lightly sweet version that would mix well and taste great in plain water. We believe we have achieved these goals...and much more! The formula is also ideal for individuals who love our original REJUVENATE!™, but who also enjoy variety and may be searching for a complete superfood that provides nutrients that synergistically leverage the potential of nucleic acids (RNA/DNA) for health and healing.
Many people consume REJUVENATE!™ PLUS in a smoothie in the morning, and take the original version in a green drink or juice in the afternoon, for example. Best of all, high levels of RNA plus additional nutrients make it just as nutritious (or more!) than our original REJUVENATE!™. With REJUVENATE!™ PLUS, superb taste goes hand-in-hand with ultra-powerful nutrition. REJUVENATE!™ PLUS tastes great when just mixed with water. Of course, it tastes great in juice, rice milk, or fruit smoothies, too! It demonstrates superior taste because of our selective addition of good-tasting superfoods, natural sweeteners, and taste enhancers. Now enjoy the benefits of a high-RNA superfood whether or not you like greens or green-type superfoods! And if you enjoy “green” superfoods, then you’ll most likely love REJUVENATE!™ PLUS. The potency and versatility of our new light, sweet green superfood will astonish you, and keep you coming back for more!
THE VERSATILE SUPERFOOD YOU CAN PRACTICALLY LIVE ON
REJUVENATE!™ PLUS is the first superfood in the REJUVENATE!™ family of superfoods that is a meal in itself! As noted, REJUVENATE!™ PLUS offers equivalently high levels of RNA to the original version, so users benefit from a fantastic smooth taste and high levels of nucleic acids (RNA, DNA, etc.). In fact, a single two-scoop serving of REJUVENATE!™ PLUS contains all the ingredients found in a single one-scoop serving of original REJUVENATE!™ and the additional nutrients that supercharge its nutrition and taste. Unlike meal replacement powders or many so-called ‘all-in-one’ formulas, REJUVENATE!™ PLUS is carefully crafted so that it offers nutrients that most effectively nourish and heal the body, and provides high levels of RNA to best support optimal health! Yes, it’s that good!
NUTRITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS AND APPLICATIONS
REJUVENATE!™ PLUS CONTAINS THE FOLLOWING UNIQUE INGREDIENTS
(distinguishing it from other REJUVENATE!™ superfoods)
VITAVEGGIE™ (500 mg/serving)
VitaVeggie™ in REJUVENATE!™ PLUS is the finest Hi-ORAC source of 100% vegetable antioxidants, concentrated extracts and whole-vegetable powders. More potent than fresh vegetables, just 1 gram of VitaVeggie™ provides 5,000 ORAC units.

• Promotes healthy skin
ORGANIC HIGH PROTEIN GARDEN SPROUT BLEND (3,300 mg/serving)
For thousands of years individuals have been using the healing power of vegetable sprouts. When a dormant seed begins to sprout, it enters a stage of tremendous vitality. Antioxidants and enzymes are produced that protect the developing plant and enable rapid growth. Exciting new research has identified the role of glucosinolates and iosthiocyanates, classes of phytochemicals inherent in sprouts, that appear to positively influence metabolism in the human body. Studies have suggested that sprout phytonutrients can promote the maintenance of healthy organs, healthy anti-inflammatory conditions, reduce the effects of toxins, and help to fight the effects of age-related free-radical activity. The particular selection of organic sprouts used in REJUVENATE!™ PLUSwere chosen to provide all of the above benefits while also yielding a blend with greater than 65% protein. Included in this blend are organic pea protein, organic quinoa sprouts, organic broccoli sprouts, organic alfalfa sprouts, organic daikon radish sprouts, organic red clover sprouts, and organic vanilla favor.
BROWN RICE PROTEIN (NON-GMO) (4,700 mg/serving)
The rice protein in REJUVENATE!™ PLUSis extracted using a proprietary enzyme process starting from non-genetically modified rice. Our rice protein is processed without the use of acids, bases or other chemicals. In addition, the protein content of the extracted product is over 70%. That is substantially higher than other extraction methods (less than 53%) that leave a much higher percentage of carbohydrate in the end product. The protein of brown rice contains all of the essential amino acids, but it is somewhat low in the amino acid lysine. For this reason we have added supplemental lysine (270 mg/serving) to the formula.
ORGANIC COLD-MILLED FLAXSEED POWDER (2,700 MG/SERVING)
Flax Seeds (Linum usitatissimum L.) contain essential fatty acids (an excellent vegetarian source of omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid), protein, soluble fiber, insoluble fiber, antioxidant lignans, minerals, and vitamins. Lignans are a phytoestrogens considered to be antioxidants. Flax seeds contain among the highest levels of lignans among all plant foods.
The unique properties of Heartland’s RCM™ Flax (Real Cold Milled) organic flaxseed provides enormous advantages over whole flax seeds, ground flax powders, and other milled flax seed products. In particular, cold-milled flax seeds offer readily assimilable omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids because of special no-heat processing that protects these delicate oils and makes them available for uptake into the body.
RCM™ Flax cold-milled flaxseed is processed using a unique, proprietary method that preserves the delicate oils and allows for optimal uptake of the oils and other nutrients (e.g., soluble fiber) into the body. That is, flax seeds must be milled into a flour or meal to obtain maximum benefits from its oils and dietary fiber. However, typical methods of grinding or pounding flaxseeds separate the oil from the seeds (and heat the oils), thereby causing the oils to oxidize and become rancid. In contrast, cold milling is a unique process that does not involve heating delicate oils and keeps them protected within finely-milled pieces of seed. Thus, cold-milled flax seed is not significantly oxidized and remains fresh for an extended period of time. Conversely, when flax seeds are harshly ground or crushed, the oils do not remain fresh because there is no inherent protection from oxidation. Cold milling allows the seed to retain and protect its oils because the process does not release the oils from the seeds .
RCM™ Flax offers a non-refrigerated shelf life of greater than 24 months. A study conducted at North Dakota State University confirms that peroxide levels of RCM™ Flax remain exceptionally low for an extended periods. While this flaxseed retains its freshness for an extended period, when refrigerated (or consumed within several months), it provides amazingly high levels of freshness.
The organic cold-milled flax seeds in REJUVENATE!™ PLUS contain oil amounts varying between 38-45%, with the oil offering a high percentage (47-53%) of the omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and 15-18% omega-6 linoleic acid. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is an essential fatty acid acting in the human body as a substratum for the transformation into EPA and DHA through the action of desaturation and elongation enzymes. The seeds also contain some omega-6 essential fatty acids and exhibit a favorable omega-3 to omega-6 ratio of 3:1. Modern diets contain too few omega-3 fatty acids.
Cold-milled flax seeds possess 15-30% protein (typically 20%) and the amino acids of flax protein have no limiting factors in the adult diet (i.e., they are a complete protein source having all of the essential amino acids in an appropriate balance). Flax seeds are also a source of magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, and copper. They also have demonstrated antioxidant activity. The most important antioxidants they provide are phytoestrogens known as lignans. Because cold milling flax seeds significantly reduces oxidation, this exceptional flax seed has great potential within the food industry when compared to other alpha-linolenic acid sources, such as typical ground flaxseed powders, which can exhibit rapid decomposition due to a lack of antioxidant protection from oxidation.
The human body easily digests flax seeds. The seed’s outer layer is rich in mucilloid soluble fiber (flax seed possesses 10-15% soluble fiber) and absorbs at least 4 times its weight in water. When mixed with water or stomach juices, the seeds form a gel that creates a physical barrier between the carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes that break them down. The carbohydrates thereby are digested and converted into glucose (blood sugar) at a slow, uniform rate. There is no insulin surge or spike needed to lower the blood sugar level. The water-retaining capacity of the gel also maintains bodily hydration (i.e., helping level out water intake) and electrolyte balance.
ORGANIC HEMP PROTEIN POWDER WITH FIBER (3,300 mg/serving)
We have chosen to include in REJUVENATE!™ PLUScertified organic hemp protein with fiber. This raw whole food protein powder is rich in complete protein, branch chain amino acids, omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids and healthy dietary fiber. Our certified organic hemp protein powder is cold milled from certified organic hemp seed and contains contains 37% protein, 43% fiber and 10% fat. The product contains no genetically modified organisms, no additives or preservatives, no THC, and is kosher certified.
ALFALFA GRASS JUICE POWDER CONCENTRATE (2,000 mg/serving)
Cereal grass juice powders compare favorably with sources of animal proteins while in addition supplying vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The AlfaPro™ alfalfa juice powder product we have selected for REJUVENATE!™ PLUSis a true whole food made from 100% young plants free of pesticides, fertilizers, and is GMO-free. These young alfafa plants are harvested at the peak of their nutritional value, cold pressed without the use of any chemical solvents, and dried at low temperature to prevent nutrient loss. The resulting alfalfa grass juice powder has the following properties:
• Is a concentrated source of protein providing more than 50% protein
• Contains 18 amino acids, including all of the eight essential amino acids needed by the body
• Supplies 13 minerals and is a good source of potassium, magnesium, and calcium.
• Provides 8 vitamins including Vitamin A (as beta carotene), Vitamins B1, B2, B6, and E.
• An excellent source of chlorophyll and xanthophylls providing 35,000 PPM chlorophyll and 1,500 PPM xanthophylls. Chlorophyll is a powerful antioxidant used to eliminate body odor, clean the digestive tract, detoxify the liver, and help prevent anemia. Xanthophylls, especially lutein and zeaxanthin, serve to filter ultraviolet radiation which can cause damage to the retina.
A MULTIVITAMIN WITH COENZYME B-COMPLEX
We have added the following vitamins to the formula: Vitamin C (167 mg), Vitamin E as d-alpha tocopheryl succinate (80 IU) and high gamma mixed tocopherols (17 mg), Vitamin D3 (533 IU), Vitamin K1 (0.133 mg), inositol (133 mg), choline (33 mg), calcium pantothenate (45 mg), niacinamide (40 mg), pantethine (9 mg), pyridoxal-5’-phosphate (6.7 mg), thiamin diphosphate (5 mg), riboflavin-5-phosphate (4 mg), calcium folinate (0.68 mg), biotin (0.6 mg), and methylcobalamin (0.133 mg).
While coenzyme vitamins usually cost significantly more than the synthesized vitamins (up to 50 times more), they remain quite affordable because they are only required by the body in very small amounts. That is, the body only needs small amounts because there are no in vivo losses related to any conversion processes. We therefore include coenzyme form vitamins in REJUVENATE!™ PLUSin quantities helpful to the body.
The inclusion of coenyzme forms of vitamins significantly contributes to making our supplement formulas more effective than if we used conventional (i.e., non-coenzyme form) vitamins. Moreover, it increases effectiveness without substantially raising our costs. Thus, the benefits considerably outweigh the costs, especially for individuals who consume our formulas, thereby reaping the benefits coenzyme vitamins offer for human health and well-being.
ENZYMES TO ENHANCE NUTRIENT UTILIZATION
The complexity and significant amounts of proteins and peptides found in REJUVENATE!™ PLUS requires the combination of multiple proteases to optimize digestion. Proteins are made up of over twenty different amino acids, with each combination presenting different characteristics. Each of the proteolytic enzymes in REJUVENATE!™ PLUShas different abilities to break the chemical bonds found in the proteins; thus, the combination shows the greatest rate of hydrolysis. Peptidase breaks amino acids off the ends of the peptide chain. Our proprietary enzyme complex contains both amino-peptidase and carboxy-peptidase activities and thus is able to remove amino acids from both ends of the peptide chain. Protease 4.5 and Protease 3.0 break bonds at points within the peptide chain dependent upon their bond specificities. Significant differences in the action of these enzymes have been seen both in the laboratory and in digestive product usage. The pH optima and ranges of these two enzymes are also an important benefit of combining these proteases. Protease 4.5 has an optimal pH of 4.5 (pH range 2.0 to 6.0). Protease 3.0 has an optimal pH of 3.0 (pH range 2.0 to 7.0). Protease 6.0 has an optimal pH of 6.0 (pH range 4.0 to 11.0). Together these proteases provide proteolytic action throughout the human digestive system.
Because REJUVENATE!™ PLUScontains a large amount of plant matter, we have added additional enzymes to the formula. Alpha-galactosidase prevents flatulence and/or bloating from a variety of grains, cereals, nuts, seeds, and vegetables that contain the sugars raffinose, stachyose and/or verbascose. This includes all or most legumes and all or most cruciferous vegetables. Cellulase enzymes offer distinct advantages for individuals consuming large amounts of vegetables. These enzymes hydrolyze the bonds in various fibers. Cellulase hydrolyzes glucose-glucose bonds in cellulose. By disrupting the structure of the fiber matrices that envelop most of the nutrients in plants, cellulase increases the nutritional value of fruits and vegetables. Hemicellulase and pectinase also works to macerate, or disrupt, the cell walls of fruits, vegetables, seeds and herbs. These enzymes hydrolyze non-starch polysaccharides (NSPs), which can have anti-nutritive effects. NSPs have also been shown to bind digestive enzymes and inhibit mineral absorption.
PREBIOTICS AND TASTE ENHANCERS
We have included xylitol (from organic hardwoods), mannitol (a powerful superoxide free-radical trapper), inulin (from chicory root), malic acid (a Krebs cycle intermediate), stevia leaf extract, organic ginger root, organic beet root juice powder, organic cherry flavoring, and organic vanilla flavoring in REJUVENATE!™ PLUSto provide prebiotics, enhanced taste, and other health benefits.
HIGH PHOSPHATIDE LECITHIN (98% oil free, NON-GMO, from sunflower seeds) (1,500 mg/serving)
In recent years, there has been a renewed interest into the health benefits and dietary requirements of lecithin. Growing evidence now suggests that dietary lecithin is very important for the maintenance of good health. Lecithin has been used as a dietary supplement for the purpose of enhancing liver function, cardiovascular health, and brain function and memory. In fact, the most recent research has shown that lecithin is an essential dietary component for ensuring optimal nutrition.
Lecithin and its component phosphatidyl choline are known to be essential for liver function. In fact, even a few weeks on a choline-deficient diet has been shown to affect liver function.
Lecithin has also been shown to be essential for proper brain development in infants and children. In fact, supplementation of animal diets with lecithin at particular times of brain development has been shown permanently to increase cognitive function.

Aloe vera extract can help enhance gastrointestinal function and may be one of the plant’s most ancient uses. People have described improved regularity, greater intestinal comfort and enhanced energy levels after ingesting biologically active aloe vera.
Studies suggest that the ingestion of aloe vera may have a beneficial effect on the accumulation of blood fat lipids. Test groups given aloe vera showed a decrease in total cholesterol, triglyceride, phospholipid and nonesterified fatty acid levels.
FLOWER POLLEN EXTRACT
Pollen is the male seed of flowers that enables flowering plants to reproduce. Pollen grains contain all substances necessary to create new life within the world of plants, and thus, are the basis for the food chain on land masses. Without pollen, there would not be trees, flowers, or vegetation. Pollen is known to hold a wide variety of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, RNA, and DNA building factors, plant hormones, antioxidant factors, enzymes, unsaturated fatty acids, prostaglandin precursors, phytosterols and more. Approximately 3% of pollen’s makeup is unknown and has been described as its mysterious “life force.”
We have selected Graminex™ Flower Pollen Extract to be included in REJUVENATE!™ PLUS. It is a natural and organic cellular food concentrate of life-giving substances in a form that makes them easily accessible for humans. Graminex™ Extract is obtained from pollen by a special process that uses no solvents, such as acetone, in the production of any flower pollen product. Graminex ™ extracts contain a group of pollen extracts from specific plant species, chosen after careful tests of their suitability. Graminex ™ Flower Pollen Extract contains no lactose, gluten, or talc, and it is Kosher (Pareve) certified.
The history of active immunization against “hay-fever” using pollen extract dates back to the early 1900s. In 1911, Noon and Freeman carried out extensive experimental work with the use of vaccines representing pollen extract, controlling the clinical application by the ophthalmic test to determine the susceptibility of the individual patient. Their pollen extracts have been used extensively in England, with extremely favorable results. The work of Noon and Freeman has stimulated extensive laboratory and clinical study in connection with active immunization in pollen related issues, and during the past few years many investigators have reported favorably upon the use of pollen extracts. All these investigators concluded that the careful use of pollen extracts in small doses is of distinct advantage in the treatment pollen related issues, and a large number of individuals have experienced complete relief from the symptoms.
REJUVENATE!™ PLUS CONTAINS THE FOLLOWING INGREDIENTS ALSO FOUND IN ORIGINAL REJUVENATE!™
(our sweet-green PLUS formula builds on a proven foundation!)
CHLORELLA (2,000 mg/serving)
Chlorella (Chlorella pyrenoidosa) is a unicellular, freshwater, green microalga. It is a nutrient-dense, alkaline-forming superfood providing protein, fiber, essential fatty acids (it is an excellent source of linolenic acid), and a full spectrum of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, antioxidants, mucopolysaccharides, and phytonutrients. Among these nutrients are significant amounts of Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K1, all the major B vitamins (including B12); iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and zinc; an abundance of naturally occurring beta-carotene and lutein. In addition, chlorella contains the highest levels of nucleic acids (RNA and DNA) among foods, including the unique nucleotide-peptide complex known as Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) (approx. 5%). Chlorella also contains the highest chlorophyll levels among plants (approx. 4%).
Our natural, raw chlorella (non-GMO and pesticide-free) is cultivated in open freshwater ponds where it receives exposure to sunlight during all stages of growth. The ideal conditions of steady sunshine and warm temperatures (averaging 82 degrees) produce a very high-quality, dark green chlorella having exceptional nutritional value, a slightly fragrant aroma, and a mild taste.
Our chlorella is readily digestible (80–85%) because it is lightly processed to break its cell walls, enabling excellent assimilation by the body. Because it supplies so many essential nutrients in readily usable forms, chlorella is an ideal superfood for all individuals desiring higher levels of nutrition.
Chlorella for Health and Healing
Chlorella is a whole, natural superfood that has existed for billions of years. In addition to high-quality protein (its amino acid profile is similar to egg), essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and fiber, chlorella’s high levels of nucleic acids (5% to 15% RNA and .5% to 1.5% DNA) boost significantly its nutritional and therapeutic value.
The dietary intake of nucleic acid rich chlorella has been shown to be a useful adjunct in protocols for a wide variety of health conditions, including cardiovascular ailments (and normalizing cholesterol and triglycerides), liver conditions, kidney conditions, diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, digestive conditions, tissue detoxification (including detoxification of heavy metals), skin problems, and strengthening of immune function.
Chlorella has demonstrated its capacity to stimulate the healing in the body. It promotes growth in young individuals and allows repair to damaged tissues in mature individuals. It has also been shown to have a normalizing and strengthening effects on many tissues and metabolic pathways. For these reasons, it is often considered by scientists to be an adaptogen (a “normalizer”) or adaptogenic food. One of primary reasons proposed for such effects are its high levels of nucleic acids (RNA and DNA), which appear to be related to the unique ability of chlorella to reproduce itself extremely rapidly (as much as quadrupling itself in 20 hours).
Extremely High Chlorophyll Content
The name “chlorella” reflects the extremely high levels of chlorophyll (5-10 times more than any other algae or food) it contains. Chlorophyll is an internal cleanser and deodorizer. Due to its high magnesium content, chlorophyll itself has proven to be a useful adjunct in protocols for wound healing, cardiovascular health, combating anemia (and stimulating production of red blood cells), and improving cellular oxygenation. Chlorophyll also has been demonstrated to be effective when used topically.
Although cholorophyll had been isolated earlier, it was not until 1913 that German chemist Dr. Richard Wilstatter identified its function in plants. The use of chlorophyll in healing was introduced as early as the pioneering work of Swiss-born scientist Emile Burgi. Burgi and Rollet (1930) were the first to demonstrate that green plant extracts could stimulate growth in tissue.
Later, Smith and Livingston (1943) proved that chlorophyll preparations could accelerate healing in wounds. Smith also showed that chlorophyll in concentrations between .05 and 0.5 in tissue cultures caused immediate growth responses in fibroblasts (wound repairing cells).
CHLORELLA GROWTH FACTOR (CGF) (200 mg/serving)
In the early 1950s, the Japanese researcher Fujimaki separated a previously undiscovered substance from a hot-water extract of chlorella that is now known as “Chlorella Growth Factor” (CGF). CGF is a nucleotide-peptide complex comprised mostly of nucleic acid derivatives. The sugars identified in the nucleotide include glucose, mannose, rhamnose, arabinose, galactose, and xylose. Amino acids found in the peptide include glutamine, alanine, serine, glycine, proline, asparagine, threonine, lysine, cysteine, tyrosine, and leucine.
It is known that CGF is produced during intense photosynthesis and enables chlorella to grow extremely rapidly. During this process, a single cell may multiply into four daughter cells as rapidly as every 20 hours. CGF not only promotes this rate of reproduction, but also is itself rapidly increased.
In Japan, Dr. Yoshiro Takechi showed that CGF stimulates lactobaccilus (the “good” bacteria) to grow at four times the usual rate. Experiments with microorganisms, young animals, and children have demonstrated that CGF promotes faster than normal growth. In adults and mature organisms, CGF appears to enhance the functions of nucleic acids at the cellular level that relate to the production of proteins, enzymes, and energy, as well as to stimulate tissue repair and offer protection against toxic substances at the cellular level.
D-RIBOSE (1,800 mg/serving)
D-Ribose (or ribose) is a sweet, crystalline, water-soluble powder. It is a naturally occurring 5-carbon sugar found in all living cells. Ribose is a component of RNA and therefore essential for living creatures. It is also a component of ATP, NADH, and other metabolism-related substances. The biological importance of ribose relates to the fact that it is the rate-limiting compound that regulates the activity of the purine nucleotide pathway of adenine nucleotide metabolism. As such, ribose plays a central role in the synthesis of ATP, coenzyme-A, flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD), nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), DNA, RNA, and other important cellular constituents. Ribose is the only known compound the body can use for performing this critical metabolic function. Specifically, ribose administration bypasses the slow and rate-limited pentose phosphate pathway to stimulate adenine nucleotide synthesis and salvage in vivo. In addition, it has been shown that de novo adenine nucleotide synthesis in skeletal muscle is rate limited by the availability of ribose.
D-ribose is commonly found in foods, especially foods high in RNA (ribonucleic acid), such as brewer’s yeast. D-ribose is essential for life and can be made by the body (e.g., from glucose). However, d-ribose from food sources can significantly boost the amount of ribose available to the body, thereby enhancing processes that utilize it.
Ribose derivatives play a significant role in the body. Important ribose derivatives encompass those having phosphate groups attached at the 5 position, including mono-, di-, and triphosphate forms, and 3–5 cyclic monophosphates. Diphosphate dimers, known as coenzymes, form an essential class of compounds with ribose. When such purine and pyrimidine derivatives are coupled with ribose, they are known as nucleosides (bases attached to ribose). Phosphorylated nucleosides are known as nucleotides. When adenine (a purine derivative) is coupled to ribose it is known as adenosine. ATP is the 5’-triphosphate derivative of adenosine. [The adenine portion of ATP consists of ribose and adenine. The triphosphate portion of ATP consists of three phosphate molecules.]
Ribose therefore is found in many important biological molecules, including adenosine triphosphate (ATP), nucleotides and nucleotide enzymes, and in RNA. D-ribose (as ribonucleoside diphosphates) notably converts to deoxyribonucleoside diphosphates, precursor molecules for DNA.
Ribose generates adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the body. Supplemental ribose increases the rate at which ATP is generated, thereby improving exercise performance and enabling faster muscle growth. This is possible because supplemental ribose enables the body to bypass the conversion steps needed to create or re-create the adenosine nucleotide. Replacing adenine nucleotides normally takes time for the body to accomplish, and this process can reduce the rate of healing and repair (e.g., of muscle fibers). Basically, supplemental ribose can increase the speed at which adenosine nucleotides can be replaced by providing raw material for the creation of more ATP.
Ribose similarly has been shown to boost synthesis and salvage of other nucleotides in the body, including those found in heart and skeletal muscle. Supplemental ribose again bypasses the rate-limiting conversion processes (i.e., of the pentose phosphate pathway), thereby speeding syntheses of nucleotides that provide energy to these tissues.
Ribose as a Significant Component of Nucleic Acids
Nucleotides are the molecular building blocks of DNA and RNA. They are chemical compounds consisting of a heterocyclic base, a 5-carbon sugar (ribose or deoxyribose) and at least one phosphate group. They are the monomers of nucleic acids, and 3 or more can bond together to form a nucleic acid.
Nucleosides are glycosylamines consisting of a base (or nucleobase) to a ribose (or deoxyribose) ring. Some nucleosides are cytidine, adenosine, guanosine, and inosine. When nucleosides are phosphorylated in cells, they produce nucleotides (see above).
Given the importance of ribose as an essential part of nucleic acids, nucleotides, nucleosides, its role in the production of energy (as ATP), and its ability to increase synthesis and salvage of nucleotides in the body, the inclusion of ribose in a formula designed to provide high levels of nucleic acids appears especially appropriate.
NUTRITIONAL YEAST (670 mg/serving)
Nutritional yeast belongs to the same family of organisms as edible mushrooms. It may be considered man's oldest industrial micro-organism. For more than 50 years, our supplier has been manufacturing primary grown nutritional yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), grown specifically for its nutritional value. After the fermentation process is completed the yeast is harvested, thoroughly washed, pasteurized, and dried on roller drum dryers. The special growth medium and unique drying process are the secrets to the exceptional performance of the nutritional yeast in our product. The result is a high-quality non-GMO product containing protein (approximately 48%) composed of essential and non-essential amino acids, dietary fiber, B-complex vitamins, and minerals such as selenium, chromium, potassium, magnesium, sodium, copper, manganese, iron, zinc
Nutritional yeast is extraordinarily rich in nucleic acids. In fact, nutritional yeast contains approximately 6% RNA – among the highest of known foods. In Dr. Frank’s protocols described in his book Nucleic Acid Nutrition and Therapy he used both nutritional yeast and high RNA extracts of nutritional yeast to obtain spectacular healing and regeneration. Furthermore, nutritional yeast contains additional functional and beneficial components such as beta-1,3 glucan, trehalose, mannan and glutathione. Studies have show that these components have potential health benefits such as, improved immune response, normalization of cholesterol, and cellular normalization properties.
SPIRULINA (1,330 mg/serving)
Spirulina is a unicellular, freshwater microalga. It is a remarkable superfood, offering a very wide range of nutrients, including high-quality protein (56%–62%), complex carbohydrates (17%–25%), vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, phytonutrients, essential fatty acids (EFAs) (i.e., GLA), enzymes (e.g. superoxide dismutase, SOD), nucleic acids (RNA and DNA), and chlorophyll.
Among the phytonutrients provided by spirulina are phycocyanin, cholorophyll, and important carotenoids (beta carotene, zeaxanthin, cryptoxanthin). These powerful phytonutrients offer significant antioxidant activity. Nutritionists recommend increasing intake of phytonutrients to protect against the harmful effects of UV light, pollution, and environmental stress. Several grams of organic Hawaiian spirulina (Spirulina Pacifica®) supplies the phytonutrients contained in an entire salad. In order to reduce processing losses of these delicate compounds, a special process of drying was developed and patented, thereby ensuring high levels of phytonutrients and enzymes. In addition, this spirulina is pesticide-free and herbicide-free and non-GMO. It is grown using deep ocean seawater as a rich source of magnesium, calcium, and trace elements. This pure ocean water is pulled from a depth of 2,000 feet and is exceptionally clean. It contains over 90 elements, and has not been in contact with the atmosphere for over 2,500 years.
RICE BRAN SOLUBLES (2,000 mg/serving)
Rice bran solubles are one of the most nutrient-dense superfoods available today. They derive entirely from rice. Specifically, they are a highly concentrated soluble carbohydrate and lipid-rich component of stabilized rice bran (i.e., a non-chemically modified water-soluble fraction). They are also a complete, great-tasting, natural source of B-complex vitamins (i.e., thiamin, niacin, vitamin B6) and contain many other nutrients, including amino acids, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and phytonutrients, Rice bran solubles are one of the world’s perfect whole foods, lacking only a few trace minerals (which Rejuvenate! provides through chlorella, nutritional yeast, spirulina, dulse, and other superfoods).
In fact, our non-GMO rice bran solubles product offers at least 29 vitamins and minerals, and more than 90 antioxidants. Among these are lipoic acid (useful in blood glucose control), tocopherols, and tocotrienols (which may have a positive effect on cholesterol levels). Alpha tocotrienol has been shown to provide up to 50 times more antioxidant power than alpha tocopherol. Rice bran solubles also contain essential fatty acids, including phospholipids, gamma oryzanol, ferulic acid and phytosterols. Certain antioxidants in rice bran solubles are documented as supportive in retarding the aging process and combating fee radicals. They strengthen the body's ability to regenerate and increase energy and stamina.
Our producer of the stabilized brown rice bran in REJUVENATE!™ PLUS utilizes a process that reliably inactivates the lipase in rice bran while retaining the rest of the food's chemistry. This is done with a mechanical extrusion process that forces the grain to deform as it squeezes through small openings in a metal die. The high rate of deformation during extrusion causes just the right amount of internal heating for the precise amount of time needed to inactivate the lipase. The result is a stabilized rice bran product that retains most of the vital nutrients of fresh rice bran, but has a shelf life measured in years rather than hours.
Some of the key nutritional elements are:
• Gamma oryzanol, beta sitosteryl ferulate, and five other related compounds. These are potent antioxidants and trace nutrients that play a vital role in many aspects of human physiology. Gamma oryzanol is found only in rice bran and has been used successfully in dealing with female hormone imbalances.
• Tocopherols and Tocotrienols - These include all of the eight known forms of Vitamin E including d-alpha tocopherol. The importance of the other forms is probably at least equal to that of the alpha form.
• Polyphenols including ferulic acid, alpha-lipoic acid, and four others. Lipoic acid plays an important role in sugar metabolism at the cellular level and is a powerful antioxidant. Ferulic acid is a powerful antioxidant as well.
• The important minerals magnesium, calcium, and phosphorous, as well as, manganese and other trace minerals. Minerals are involved in all of the enzyme functions of the body including those involved in energy production.
• Phytosterols, including beta sitosterol, campesterol, stigmasterol, and at least eleven more. Phytosterols have been shown to prevent the absorption of cholesterol, support healthy prostate function, and help to build immune function.
• Carotenoids, including beta-carotene, alpha carotene, lycopene, lutein, zeaxanthin, and more. Although beta-carotene is commonly sold as a single-ingredient supplement, alpha-carotene may in fact be more important. Lycopene is responsible for some of the recent health claims relating to tomatoes and lutein and zeaxanthin play key roles in retinal function.
• Essential amino acids including tryptophan, histidine, methionine, cysteine, cystine, and arginine. Amino acids are the body’s raw materials for building all of its enzymes, DNA, RNA, and connective tissue.
• Nine B-vitamins supporting the body’s metabolic machinery, polysaccharides known among other functions to support immunity, and phospholipids. Phospholipids are vital to maintaining healthy cell membranes.
• Lecithin which contains the important phospholipids phosphatidyl choline and phosphatidyl serine.
• Seven identified enzymes, including coenzyme Q10 and superoxide dismutase (an important antioxidant).
Magnesium is one of the most abundant, available metals on earth, and plays crucial roles in the sustenance of life and its chemical processes. The divalent nature of the magnesium cation makes it an ideal activator for enzyme systems. Estimates for its usage in human systems include over 50 different biochemical reactions and its necessary presence for the operation of over 300 enzymes. Magnesium is essential for energy production, maintenance of electrolyte balance, and neuromuscular function. Investigations into rates of magnesium deficiency show that individuals in developed countries are at remarkably high risk with the suspected primary cause being an inadequate, depleted diet high in processed foods (from which magnesium has been removed but not replaced).
There are several nutritional requirements in the body in order for mitochondria to manufacture ATP. These essential nutrients include oxygen, magnesium, food substrate, ADP, and inorganic phosphate, as well as Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, and Vitamin B6 in their phosphorylated coenzyme forms. The body also needs adequate stores of malate (an important Krebs cycle intermediate) in order for most of these nutrients to function effectively in the process of ATP production. When any of these nutrients are not present in adequate amounts within the mitochondria, a vicious cycle can occur in which ATP is not created in amounts sufficient for proper cellular functioning. Insufficient amounts of ATP mean that the B vitamins may not be adequately phosphorylated leading to improper metabolism and further reductions in ATP production. The much less efficient anaerobic production of ATP will be utilized to a greater extent in such cases. A balance point may be reached in which the body produces only a fraction of the optimal amount of ATP. Under these conditions muscle weakness and fatigue may occur. Abraham and Flechas reported that supplementing the diet with magnesium may reverse such conditions of low energy (Jrnl of Nutritional Medicine 3: 49-59).
For the above reasons, we have included magnesium in REJUVENATE!™ PLUS from magnesium malate (providing both magnesium and malate) and magnesium ascorbate (providing additional magnesium as well as Vitamin C).
Dulse is a sea vegetable (i.e., seaweed) that is a rich source of iron, potassium, iodine, Vitamin B6, riboflavin, and dietary fiber. It provides a wide range of minerals, trace elements, enzymes and phytochemicals, as well as some high-quality vegetable protein. Our certified organic raw dulse is sustainably harvested from well-protected coastal passages and low temperature dried.
Folinic acid, also known as 5-formyl tetrahydrofolate, is one active form in a group of vitamins known as folates. In contrast to folic acid, a synthetic form of folate, folinic acid is one of the forms of folate found naturally in foods. Folate deficiency is believed to be the most common vitamin deficiency in the world due to food processing, food selection, and intestinal disorders. In the body folinic acid may be converted into any of the other active forms of folate.
Folate coenzymes are responsible for the following important metabolic functions: 1) Formation of purines and pyrimidines which, in turn, are needed for synthesis of the nucleic acids DNA and RNA. 2) Formation of heme, the iron-containing protein in hemoglobin, 3) Interconversion of the 3-carbon amino acid serine from the 2-carbon amino acid glycine, 4) Formation of the amino acids tyrosine from phenylalanine and glutamic acid from histidine, 5) Formation of the amino acid methionine from homocysteine (Vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin also is needed for this conversion). Elevated levels of homocysteine have been implicated in a wide range of health disorders. In the reconversion of homocysteine to methionine the body uses the methionine to make the important amino acid s-adenosylmethionine (SAMe) which is known to be helpful in cases of depression, 6) Synthesis of choline from ethanolamine, 7) Formation and maturation of red and white blood cells, and 8) Conversion of nicotinamide to N'-methylnicotinamide.
METHYLCOBALAMIN (COENZYME VITAMIN B12)
Methylcobalamin is one of two coenzyme forms of B12 (along with adenosylcobalamin) and can be used directly by the body without metabolic conversion. Vitamin B12 is involved in numerous important body functions, including: 1) Red blood cell formation and control of pernicious anemia, 2) The synthesis and function of nerve tissue, such as myelin, 3) The metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins (Vitamin B12 is necessary for the conversion of methylmalonate to succinic acid, an important Krebs cycle intermediate in energy production), 4) The synthesis or transfer of single carbon units (e.g., allowing the interconversion of serine and glycine and the conversion of homocysteine to methionine), 5) Serving as a coenzyme in the biosynthesis of methyl groups, and 6) Involvement in reactions that convert disulfides (S-S) to the important sulfhydryl group (S-H).
