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
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
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!
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 provides are
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), 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, sprouted organic 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!™ PLUS is firmly rooted in the tradition of nucleic acid nutrition and therapy that inspires the design of our entire line
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!™ PLUS is
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!™ PLUS offers
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!™ PLUS is
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
Dr. Frank’s human subjects also showed
many positive effects, including increased energy levels, greater
endurance, improved muscle strength, easier breathing, lowered
cholesterol levels, diminishment of angina pains and other 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 = ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS
A UNIQUE MEMBER OF THE REJUVENATE!™ FAMILY 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. Other enjoy mixing the
two versions together to take advantage of the benefits provided by
both formulas, or combine them with REJUVENATE!™ PRO or Chlorella. 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 LIVE ON, BY, WITH, OR FOR!
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 (and
more RNA per unit weight that than our popular cherry-raspberry-vanilla REJUVENATE!™ PRO), 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,
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
(that distinguish it from our 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. This blend packs a double wallop of nutrition by
providing quality, high-ORAC antioxidants from vegetable concentrates
plus a liberal helping of fully-intact whole vegetable phytochemicals
from concentrated freeze-dried vegetable powders. Anthocyanins,
lycopene, lutein, chlorogenic acid, beta carotene, ellagic acid,
quercetin and quinic acid are all found in VitaVeggie™. The vegetables in VitaVeggie™ include:
• The finest and richest broccoli and the most perfect hand-picked broccoli sprouts
• Vine-ripened tomatoes harvested at an optimal point in their growth and bursting with nutrition.
• The freshest leafy spinach and the ripest home-grown kale
• Tender baby California carrots glowing with color
• Brussels sprouts and the highest quality onions from the Pacific Northwest
VitaVeggie™ functions in the following ways:
• High ORAC source of natural vegetable antioxidants
• Helps prevent the effects of premature aging
• Promotes cardiovascular health
• Promotes healthy brain function and mental acuity
• Promotes healthy vision
• Promotes healthy blood sugar levels
• Excellent source of flavonoids and organic acids
• Promotes urinary tract health
• 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!™ PLUS were
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!™ PLUS is
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 SPROUTED 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.
While flax seeds are an excellent nutritional food. However, whole
flax seeds can be difficult to digest and its nutrients typically are
poorly absorbed. Flax seeds contain natural enzyme inhibitors that
prevent digestion. This natural protective mechanism means that a seed
may be eaten, pass through the body, and still grow into a plant
(i.e., completely surviving the digestive process!). Milling or grinding
the seeds does not decrease natural enzyme inhibitors that reduce
the bioavailability of flax. Only sprouting decreases natural
inhibitors that otherwise will prevent complete digestion, absorption,
and assimilation of flax seeds.
Sprouted Flaxseed Powder provides an ideal solution to maximize health benefits of flax seeds. The process of germination fundamentally changes nutrient composition of the seed. Nutrients including enzymes, amino acids, and vitamins substantially increase
and become more bioavailable. This allows for better availability and
absorption of these nutrients in the body. For example, sprouting
flaxseed doubles antioxidant (ORAC) value. In addition,
“anti-nutrients” such as phytic acid, enzyme inhibitors, and insoluble
fibers all decrease. This further increases bioavailability and
nutrient absorption of flax, and thereby dramatically boosts the
health benefits attainable from consuming it.
Unlike the conventional methods of milling and/or packaging milled flax, our supplier provides a unique Sprouted Flaxseed Powder
created using a proprietary process for dehydration and milling.
Dehydration ensures the highest-quality product with minimal loss in
nutrients or taste. Then a “no heat” milling process is used that also
ensures that there is no loss of nutrients or decreased product
stability. Because the sprouting process increases relative levels of
vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, this special sprouted flaxseed
powder is shelf stable and does not require refrigeration. These unique
features distinguish this singular Sprouted Flaxseed Powder from all other flax products available.
Sprouted Flaxseed Powder is high in omega-3 essential fats, fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals (and it is low in calories). Sprouted Flaxseed Powder
is described as a “predigested food” because of its high
bioavailability, which allows the body to absorb astonishingly high
levels of nutrients. For example, a 3-gram serving provides 690 mg of
omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and nutrients to properly convert
it to EPA and DHA.
The germinated flax seeds in Sprouted Flaxseed Powder provide many benefits:
• Vitamins increase 200% to 900%
• Mineral bioavailability increases as much as 100%
• Protein bioavailability increases as much as 50%
• Antioxidants increase 100%
• Coenzymes and cofactors are enhanced for better EPA and DHA conversion
• Lignans increase 14%
The unique properties of Sprouted Flaxseed Powder provides enormous advantages over whole flax seeds, ground flax powders, and other milled flax seed products. In particular, Sprouted Flaxseed Powder
offer readily assimilated 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.
The Sprouted Flaxseed Powder in REJUVENATE!™ PLUS
contains 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.
Sprouted Flaxseed Powder 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 the special “no-heat”
processing of flax seeds significantly reduces oxidation, this
exceptional sprouted flaxseed powder has great potential within the food
industry when compared to other alpha-linolenic acid sources,
particularly 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 four 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!™ PLUS certified
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!™ PLUS is
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
• 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!™ PLUS in 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!™ PLUS has
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
Because REJUVENATE!™ PLUS contains
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
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!™ PLUS to provide prebiotics, enhanced taste, and other health benefits.
High Phosphatide Lecithin (98% oil free and Non-GMO) (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 prevention of many pathologic conditions. Lecithin has
been used as a dietary supplement for the purpose of treating or
preventing several human diseases including cirrhosis of the liver,
arteriosclerosis, and certain deficiencies of 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 cause
abnormalities in liver function. Studies in primate models of
alcohol-induced cirrhosis have shown that lecithin protects the body
from alcohol liver damage. This is a particularly important finding
because liver cirrhosis caused by excessive intake of alcohol is the
fourth leading cause of death in people 25 to 64 years of age in the US.
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
Organic Aloe Vera Extract
We demand quality products containing
the strongest, most biologically active and effective ingredients
available. The aloe vera we have selected for REJUVENATE!™ PLUS meets
our requirements. It combines ground breaking research and
state-of-the-art manufacturing that preserves, and even enhances, aloe
vera's natural benefits in the form of ACTIValoe™, a standardized
certified organic aloe vera with 10% total polysaccharides by weight.
The purity and quality of ACTIValoe™ is verified by scientific analysis
(i.e., Proton NMR Analysis, HPLC, SEC, etc.) and is certified by the
International Aloe Science Council for its content and purity.
Furthermore, ACTIValoe™ is guaranteed to retain biological activity to
help deliver the healing properties of aloe vera.
Biologically active aloe vera is
believed to reduce severe joint and muscle pain associated with
arthritis, as well as pain related to tendinitis and injuries. When
applied directly to the area of pain, aloe vera penetrates the skin to
soothe the pain. Studies have also found that ingestion of biologically
active aloe on a daily basis can help prevent and cause a regression
of adjutant arthritis. Aloe vera extract can relieve gastrointestinal
problems and may be one of the plant’s most ancient uses. Even today,
people consume aloe vera to help relieve ulcerous, gastrointestinal and
kidney problems. People have described improved regularity, greater
intestinal comfort and enhanced energy levels after ingesting
biologically active aloe vera. In addition, many who have suffered from
indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, increased stomach acid, peptic
and duodenal ulcers, and colitis have reported relief from these
conditions following ingestion of aloe vera.
Coronary heart disease is one of the
major causes of death in the United States. However, studies suggest
that the ingestion of aloe vera may have a beneficial effect on the
accumulation of blood fat lipids associated with the disease. Test
groups given aloe vera showed a decrease in total cholesterol,
triglyceride, phospholipid and nonesterified fatty acid levels, each of
which, when elevated, seem to accelerate the accumulation of fatty
material in large and medium-sized arteries, including the coronary
arteries of the heart.
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
diseases, 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 of the disease,
and a large number of individuals have experienced complete relief from
REJUVENATE!™ PLUS CONTAINS THE FOLLOWING INGREDIENTS ALSO FOUND IN ORIGINAL REJUVENATE!™
(our unique "sweet green" formula...builds upon 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
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), cancer, 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,
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
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
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
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
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
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 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
