Rejuvenate!™ Side-by-Side Comparison
Health Products Distributors, Inc.’s line of Rejuvenate!™ superfoods features three distinct formulas, each offering its own benefits. Despite the variety of formulas, all are based upon the research of Dr. Benjamin S. Frank on nucleic acids. Dr. Frank showed in extensive clinical trials and research studies that nucleic acids (and especially ribonucleic acid (RNA)) are essential nutrients with benefits greater than any other nutritional supplement. Among beneficial effects Dr. Frank reports are 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). In addition, Dr. Frank’s human subjects also showed many positive effects, including increased energy levels, improved muscle strength, lowered cholesterol levels, diminishment of angina pains, blood sugar stabilization, improved vision, and a more youthful appearance.
In Nucleic Acid Nutrition and Therapy (1977), Dr. Frank notably asserts that nucleic acids are essential nutrients of human beings, as distinct from non-essential, accessory nutrients. He considered nucleic acids and nucleotides an essential dietary category, i.e., as being nutrients just as essential for humans as vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. In particular, he noted the health effects resulting from even relatively small intakes (as little as 75 mg) of nucleic acids (e.g., energizing effects, anti-anoxia effects, rejuvenation, greater vitality). Dr. Frank found he could not obtain these improvements in his subjects by increasing only the intake of vitamins, minerals, proteins, or other essential nutrients. He declares: “[N]ucleic acids are an essential nutrient in our daily diets, and [...] optimal health and reduced aging are clearly related to their intake, more than to any other nutrient. Nucleic acids in our diets are of paramount importance for the repairing of molecular and gross tissue degeneration, and for combating the process of aging by simple, effective and essentially non-toxic, natural means.”

All three Rejuvenate!™ formulas contain at least 340 mg of RNA in a single serving.
The original Rejuvenate!™ (greens) is primarily aimed at providing high-RNA foods along with superfoods that provide the body with the nutrition that it needs to build and utilize RNA/DNA. Rejuvenate!™ is “green tasting” and very detoxifying. The sources of RNA (and DNA) in Rejuvenate!™ include chlorella, nutritional yeast, spirulina, chlorella growth factor, and RNA/DNA extracts of yeast. This formula is favored by individuals who enjoy the taste of greens (i.e., prefer larger amounts of chlorella), and can tolerate faster rates of detoxification. Because original Rejuvenate!™ provides relatively lower levels of protein, it is ideal for times when a “lighter” (yet very green and nutritious) superfood is desired. This formula also mixes well with other Rejuvenate!™ superfoods and various foods and drinks. While it does not provide a complete multivitamin (as the PLUS and Berries & Herbs versions), our original formula is the most “therapeutic” in the Rejuvenate!™ line because its high concentration of greens allows for the most rapid rates of detoxification.
Because many people need to detoxify at a slower rate, we developed Rejuvenate!™ PLUS which decreases the amount of the most detoxifying ingredients of the original version. In addition, new protein sources of organic pea protein and freeze-dried brocolli and alfalfa sprouts are included along with a multivitamin (with coenzyme vitamins). Also included are high-phosphatide sunflower lecithin, prebiotics, enzymes to enhance nutrient uptake, organic aloe vera (18% acemannan), and high-ORAC vegetable extract powder. Rejuvenate!™ PLUS has a fresh sweet green taste, acts as a detoxifier, contains few sugars (0.6 gm/serving), and is well balanced in all essential nutrients including protein, fiber, and essential fats. It is ideal for individuals who can enjoy green superfoods, yet who may prefer a lighter, subtle green formula with a naturally sweet taste. Our best-tasting and most well-rounded “green” superfood. We consider PLUS our flagship “next-generation” superfood (updated 11/17) setting a new standard for its balance of nutritional value, superior taste, and provision for major therapeutic benefits.
Rejuvenate!™ BERRIES & HERBS provides a fruity-tasting alternative to Rejuvenate!™ PLUS that allows detoxification to occur at a slower rate. For this reason, Rejuvenate!™ Berries & Herbs has few of the most detoxifying ingredients and contains no “green foods” (such as chlorella). Instead, Rejuvenate!™ Berries & Herbs has large amounts of tasty organic freeze-dried blueberries, cranberries, raspberries, and strawberries, as well as an extremely high ORAC fruit-based antioxidant (VitaBerry Plus). In addition, the formula includes a complete herbal-based cell support subformula with antioxidants. Like Rejuvenate!™ PLUS, Rejuvenate!™ Berries & Herbs includes new protein sources (such as freeze-dried vegetable sprouts, pea protein, and rice protein) and a multivitamin (with coenzyme vitamins). Also included are high phosphatide sunflower lecithin, prebiotics, enzymes to enhance nutrient uptake, and organic aloe vera (18% acemannan). Rejuvenate!™ Berries & Herbs has a delicious berry taste, detoxifies, protects cells, and is well balanced in all essential nutrients including protein, fiber, and essential fats. What distinguishes Berries & Herbs is amazing berry taste, superior antioxidant/ORAC value, therapeutic herbs, and its “no greens” (yet high-RNA) formulation.
“Berries & Herbs is just as amazing as every other Rejuvenate product. Actually, each of them is my favorite, and I think it is so good to have such a great variety (taste wise) without missing all the healing powers / health benefits they all possess.”
