MEGAVITAMIN MYTH-BUSTING

Commentary by Andrew W. Saul and Helen Saul Case

(Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, Dec 23, 2019)

People are so confused about endless internet vitamin legends. Now it’s time to be blunt and set the record straight.

The media says that taking vitamins will kill me. Is that so? NO.

 

It’s been said that the FDA does not regulate nutritional supplements. Is that true? NO. “FDA regulates both finished dietary supplement products and dietary ingredients.” [U.S. Food and Drug Administration, http://www.fda.gov/Food/DietarySupplements/ ]

 

I have heard that “vitamin supplements are useless” and that “supplements do not prevent or cure disease, and they do not help you live longer.” Is that accurate? NO.
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/index.shtml

 

I get enough vitamins from my diet. NO, you don’t.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v01n03.shtml

 

Aren’t foods a more economical vitamin source than supplements? NO.
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v09n32.shtml

 

Should I really stop all vitamin supplements for a week (or more) prior to surgery? NO.
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v11n07.shtml

 

Do I need special vitamin preparations for my body to absorb them? NO. With vitamins, there is usually no absorption issue. All animals need and absorb nutrients, including vitamins. If they didn’t, they’d be long extinct. The surface area of your small intestine, if all the nooks and crannies were flatted out, would be half the size of a regulation basketball court. There is ample opportunity for nutrient absorption.

 

Doesn’t taking vitamins just make expensive urine? NO.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v04n21.shtml

 

VITAMIN C

 

Does vitamin C causes kidney stones? NO.
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v09n05.shtml

 

Does vitamin C interfere with chemotherapy? NO, vitamin C actually enhances chemotherapy.
http://www.doctoryourself.com/Cancer_Why_IV_C.html and
http://www.doctoryourself.com/chemo.html

 

I have heard that ascorbic acid is not really vitamin C. Is that true? NO.
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v09n27.shtml and
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v05n10.shtml

 

Will vitamin C from a genetically modified (GMO) source hurt me? NO.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v09n27.shtml

 

Does the acidity of ascorbic acid vitamin C destroy probiotics? NO.
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v09n27.shtml

 

If I take too much vitamin C during pregnancy, will it cause a miscarriage? NO, vitamin C is highly protective of your developing baby.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v10n06.shtml

 

Does taking too much vitamin C during pregnancy causes infantile rebound scurvy? NO.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v14n12.shtml

 

Is liposomal vitamin C as good as intravenous vitamin C? NO.
https://www.youtube.com/embed/04cOSwZ43II?autoplay=1

 

Will I get to much sodium from taking sodium ascorbate vitamin C? NO, says cardiologist Thomas Levy, MD, JD.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v14n12.shtml

 

Does G6PD mean no supplemental vitamin C? NO. The Riordan Clinic has administered 15,000 mg vitamin C by IV to G6PD patients without harm.
http://www.doctoryourself.com/RiordanIVC.pdf

 

But since Linus Pauling died from cancer, didn’t he fail to benefit from all the vitamin C he took? NO.
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v06n24.shtml

 

VITAMIN A

 

Some persons have a genetic trait that makes it more difficult for them to convert dietary carotene into active vitamin A. Does this mean they must take preformed oil retinol A? NO. Even a poor converter can still make sufficient vitamin A from carotene if they eat lots of fruits and vegetables . . . which we should all be doing anyway.

 

Does beta carotene cause cancer? NO. (But cigarettes do.)
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v04n09.shtml and
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v04n23.shtml

 

B VITAMINS

 

Does niacin hurt the liver? NO.
http://www.doctoryourself.com/news/v4n21.html and
http://www.doctoryourself.com/niacin.html

 

Is niacin clinically incompatible for people with methylation issues? NO. Theoretically, perhaps. But Dr. Abram Hoffer, the world’s most experienced niacin physician, has said it is not clinically significant.

 

Aren’t B-vitamins so poorly absorbed that they need to be methylated? NO. Comparing their molecular weights with the simplest of all sugars, we find:

Glucose (C6H12O6) weighs 180 grams/mole
Niacin (C6H5NO2) weighs 123 g/mol
Pyridoxine 169 g/mol
Pantothenic acid 219 g/mol
Biotin 244 g/mol
Thiamin 265 g/mol
Riboflavin 376 g/mol
Folic acid or folate 441 [Methylated may be better. However: 1) See: Bailey LB. Dietary reference intakes for folate: the debut of dietary folate equivalents. Nutr Rev. 1998;56(10):294-299. And 2) The Linus Pauling Institute says: “Unmetabolized folic acid concentrations returned to baseline levels at the end of the study, suggesting that adaptive mechanisms eventually converted folic acid to reduced forms of folate.”
Cobalamin 1,355 g/mol [methylated is probably better in this case]

 

MAGNESIUM

 

I get plenty of magnesium in my diet! NO, you probably don’t.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v13n22.shtml and
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v12n20.shtml

 

VITAMIN E

 

Is vitamin E dangerous? NO. The safety record of all forms of vitamin E is exceptionally good.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v07n11.shtml

 

VITAMIN K

 

Do I need to consume vitamin K-2 because K-1 in foods is ineffective? NO. Your body will make the conversion for you. John Cannell, MD, writes that the conversion “occurs through an intermediary molecule, vitamin K3, which is made in the intestine from vitamin K1. [Hirota Y, et al. J Biol Chem. 2013 Sep 30.] “[M]odern humans are deficient in K2 because they do not eat large quantities of vitamin K1 containing foods. If we look at Paleolithic humans, they probably got high amount of vitamin K2 from eating large quantities of kale and spinach-like foods, very high in K1, which then supplied their tissues with all the vitamin K2 they needed. [A]s far as getting enough vitamin K2, the best thing to do is eat your greens.”

VITAMIN D

I drink milk, and I spend time in the sunshine. Don’t I get plenty of vitamin D? NO. If your shadow is longer than you are, you are not making vitamin D from sunlight, says William Grant, PhD. Thus, little vitamin D is made by your body in the six colder months of the year. This is also true in the summer months if only exposed to sun mornings and afternoons.

Rejuvenation Program: Part Four

FOUNDATIONAL ELEMENTS IN THE HPDI MASTER REJUVENATION PROGRAM

Fred Liers PhD rejuvenation programThe HPDI Rejuvenation Program provides practices, protocols, and recommendations proven over 31 years. It is a complete program to rejuvenate, regenerate, and boost vitality to body, mind, and spirit. It is especially helpful for those who want to restore health.

The program emphasizes establishing basic nutrition, foundational nutritional formulas, and high-RNA Rejuvenate!™ superfoods and other sources of dietary nucleic acids. The program rests on six elements: 1) Attitude/Commitment, 2) Detoxification, 3) Preventing Toxicity, 4) Health Building Nutrition, 5) Building Powerful Immunity, and 6) Supporting Protocols.

The six foundational elements remain powerful individually, but act synergistically when combined to support optimal health. The results are greatly improved capabilities for your body to heal, regenerate, rejuvenate, and restore its vitality.

As I stated in Part Three of the Rejuvenation Program series, health building nutrition plays a major role in the process of rejuvenation. We recommend emphasizing organic and/or wildcrafted foods, consuming more plant-based foods, raw foods, and generally consuming natural, whole foods (e.g., avoiding refined/processed foods).

I also discussed foods recommended in our Rejuvenation Program. Our recommendations include consuming foods high in nucleic acids (RNA and DNA). RNA-rich foods include chlorella and  Rejuvenate!™ superfoods. Rejuvenate! superfoods provide therapeutic levels of nucleic acids to support optimal rejuvenation, revitalization, and health. They also provide supporting nutrients (e.g., d-ribose, coenzyme B vitamins) that maximize utilization and healing effects of dietary nucleic acids in the body.

HPDI offers three versions of Rejuvenate!, including Rejuvenate! (original greens)Rejuvenate PLUS, and Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs. Rejuvenate! PLUS and Rejuvenate Berries & Herbs are the most complete. Both provide delicious taste, therapeutic levels of dietary RNA, nutrients that support the body’s use of nucleic acids (e.g., d-ribose), a complete multivitamin, essential fats, and high levels of protein.

THE NEED FOR NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTATION

Last month, I discussed dietary/food aspects of nutrition. Today, I present key roles played by what we call “foundational” (or sometimes “core”) nutritional supplements. Foundational nutritional supplements are one of the critical means to success in creating powerful health by establishing optimal nutrient status in the body. Foundational supplements include: 1) multivitamins, 2) An antioxidant / Vitamin C formula, 3) essential fats, and 4) high-RNA superfoods.

We have found that proper nutritional supplementation provides important nutrients not always easily available in the diet. This partly relates to the fact that our needs for nutrients have never been greater. In addition, there are various reasons that most foods are deficient in nutrients, and therefore cannot or do not provide levels of nutrients required to sustain optimal health.

Some reasons dietary supplements are necessary include the fact that most crops are grown in nutrient-deficient or depleted soils; increased demands by the body due to greater needs for nutrients (relating to detoxification, stress, pollution, etc.); biochemical individuality resulting in greater needs for certain nutrients depending on the biochemistry unique to individuals. Biochemical individuality means that a person may require many times the US Daily Value of specific nutrients. In fact, one person may need hundreds of times the amount of a nutrient compared to a different person.

In addition, needs change during the year due to environmental circumstances. Changing seasons, environments, air/water supply, etc. mean that an individual’s need for nutrients typically changes during the year (e.g., more vitamin D needed in the winter, more nutrients needed to deal with pollution associated with urban environments or stress, etc.). Nutrient density of foods also varies by location, season, etc. The availability of nutrients in foods (even organically grown foods) can vary substantially due to season, geography, growing methods, etc.

All these factors add up to the fact that it is difficult to ensure optimal nutrient status without supplementation. Because the need for nutrients is greater than ever for most people, the need for nutritional supplementation is also greater than ever. Nutritional supplements provide an effective (and cost effective) means to ensure the high levels of nutrients required to build, sustain, and maintain optimal health.

NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS IN THE HPDI REJUVENATION PROGRAM

ESTABLISHING FOUNDATIONAL NUTRITION

Foundational formulas are the primary supplements we recommend for success not only in our Rejuvenation Program, but also for helping create better health generally. In fact, foundational supplement formulas are the basic building blocks for establishing and maintaining high nutritional status at all times in any program. (While foods are your primary source of nutrients, nutritional supplements are the best way to ensure intake of nutrients needed for good health.)

As noted above, the four foundational nutritional supplements we recommend are: 1) a high-potency multivitamin, 2) an essential fats formula (omega-3 and omega-6), and 3) Vitamin C (preferably buffered) with antioxidants (especially bioflavonoids), and 4) Rejuvenate!™ superfoods (and/or other high-RNA superfoods).

These four types of foundational formulas are the most important supplements and superfoods. Even if you take no other dietary supplements, these are the formulas that ensure you get basic nutrients required for good health. In fact, no diet or nutritional supplementation program is complete without them.

I will now consider the four types of foundational formulas, explain how they function, and reasons why they essential for good health.

FOUNDATIONAL #1: A HIGH-QUALITY MULTIVITAMIN

A high-quality, high-potency multivitamin is the single most important supplement you can take. A good multivitamin ensures you receive important nutrients not always available in optimal amounts in foods. Taking a multivitamin helps guarantee uptake of nutrients that ar e not readily available because modern diets have strayed far from traditional diets. In addition, modern lifestyles create far greater demands for critical nutrients even as many nutrients are increasingly less available from foods. Multivitamins help break the cycle of deficiency and degeneration.

Critical nutrients provided by a good therapeutic multivitamin formula include a wide range of essential vitamins, minerals, and cofactors. Such a formula will usually include trace minerals, fat-soluble vitamins (A, E, D, & K), coenzyme B vitamins, magnesium, or other nutrients known to be deficient in the diets of most individuals.

Important factors to consider when looking for a good multivitamin, include high-potency, forms, completeness, balance, assimilability (e.g., ease of uptake and rapid assimilation), ease of use (convenience), etc.

High-potency is important because for most nutrients, the so-called “daily value” is simply inadequate for most people. Most individuals need many times the daily value of vitamins for good health. This is because daily values are established based on minimum amounts required for sustain life (e.g., survival) rather than the optimal amounts needed for good health.

As noted, studies of biochemical individuality show that individuals may require many times greater amounts of specific nutrients than are needed by the average person. Because most vitamins (especially water soluble ones) are essentially non-toxic even in relatively large doses (i.e., hundreds or sometimes thousands of times the daily value), it pays to provide your body with larger amounts of critical nutrients that it may require because you may not be an ‘average’ person.

Complicating this picture is the fact that individuals needs for specific nutrients vary widely. Thus, for example, one person’s need for vitamin C may be somewhat higher than average, yet the same person’s need for vitamin D may be significantly higher than average.

The proper forms of the nutrients are another critical factor. While forms have not always been a prime consideration (either of consumers or formulators), they are critically important. Forms are worthy of attention because we know that the form of a vitamin or mineral can make a major difference in terms of how it assimilated and used in the body.

For example, Krebs cycle bionutrients (i.e., mineral carriers, such as citrates, malates, alpha-ketoglutarates, succinates, or fumarates) are known to be superior precisely because they are the forms naturally recognized and utilized in the body. This is because these forms are used in the Krebs cycle (or citric acid cycle) that is part of the metabolic pathway used to generate energy (ATP) from nutrients in foods. In contrast, elemental forms of minerals and/or forms that are not part of the Krebs cycle may be more difficult to assimilate because they must be converted into forms the body can use. The biological cost is reduced bioavailability, as well as cellular energy expense and time required for metabolic conversion. As you can see, forms matter for health!

Other important factors include completeness and balance. Completeness is important in a multivitamin because the body requires a wide range of nutrients working together to create and sustain health. Many multivitamins are neither complete nor balanced. This relates partly to the fact that multivitamins are often not designed with an understanding of nutrients, forms, or amounts needed for health. Consequently, many commonly available multivitamins incorporate less effective forms, inadequate amounts, and improper ratios of nutrients. This reflects a general lack of understanding by formulators about how nutrients work together to build and sustain health. In contrast, supplements are available that provide completeness and balance.

HPDI offers several high-quality, balanced, and complete multivitamins providing easily assimilated forms of nutrients in optimal amounts. These include Hank & Brian’s Mighty Multi-Vite!, Multi Two caps or tabs, and Chewable Kids Mighty-Multi! (which is also designed for adults to enjoy, too). We recommend our capsule formulas because they are the easier to assimilate. However, our tablet formulas are both effective and cost-effective. Children benefit greatly from a multivitamin, and for them we offer our chewable Kids Mighty-Multi! multivitamin formula.

FOUNDATIONAL #2: AN ANTIOXIDANT / VITAMIN C FORMULA

Vitamin C is legendary for its healing capacities. Yet, it is notable that despite numerous studies and accolades by nutritionists, it remains underutilized by mainstream medicine and is completely under-appreciated for the healing powerhouse it represents for human health.

We include Vitamin C as a foundational formula because we understand its role in creating and sustaining optimal health. Vitamin C not only is a potent antioxidant, but also a powerful immune builder/anti-viral, cholesterol controller, and connective tissue strengthener. In fact, no other vitamin or nutrient can take its place in terms of what it can contribute to human health, longevity, and well-being.

Ever since Linus Pauling wrote Vitamin C and the Common Cold, Vitamin C has held a place of esteem among nutritional scientists and consumers of Vitamin C products. Pauling went on to present further studies and to write his best-seller How to Live Longer and Feel Better (rev. 2006). Vitamin C plays a major role both in his discussion of vitamins and in the supplement regimens he recommends.

In nature, Vitamin C is always combined with bioflavanoids. Bioflavanoids (such as rutin, quercetin, catechins, anthocyandins, and oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs)), work synergistically with Vitamin C to create powerful antioxidant effects, counteract inflammation, and strengthen connective tissues. In addition, Vitamin C and bioflavanoids combine with other antioxidants (including glutathione, lipoic acid, and selenium) in a process called “redox cycling.” In this process, antioxidants protect and “spare” each other, thereby allowing for significantly increased antioxidant protection in the body.

We offer a variety of Vitamin C products, including formulas with bioflavonoids. Our Vitamin C formulas include Ultimate Protector+™, PRO-C™, Buffered Vitamin C tabs, and Buffered Vitamin C powder. We typically recommend taking a buffered Vitamin C product to prevent acidosis and help maintain proper pH levels in the body.

We consistently find that one of greatest means for success in creating health using dietary supplements is to ensure you take all four types of foundational formulas. For example, many people take one or two foundational formulas: a multivitamin, essential fats, Vitamin C plus bioflavonoids, and/or high-RNA superfoods. But how many people take all four daily? Do you take all four daily? You might be surprised at the results if you took them all daily. This is because foundational formulas work together synergistically and leverage each other in ways that exceed the health-building effects that can be expected when foundational formulas are taken individually.

FOUNDATIONAL #3: AN ESSENTIAL FATS FORMULA

Many people understand the need to take supplemental multivitamins. The need for essential fatty acids (EFAs) has gained increased attention recently, and it is no less important. More people are consuming fish, fish oils, and vegetarian sources of essential fats, including chia seeds. However, the need for supplementing diet with essential fats to ensure adequate daily intake has never been greater than today.

There are two basic essential fats: alpha-linoleic acid (omega-3) and linolenic acid (omega-6). Other fats are sometimes included as being essential fats, including gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an important omega-6 fatty acid, and eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA), important omega-3 fatty acids.

Essential fats are considered ‘essential’ because they are needed for biological processes (i.e., they are required to sustain life) rather than acting only as a food-based source of energy (as do many other non-essential fatty acids). Humans, therefore, must ingest essential fatty acids both for survival and for good health.

Essential fats play multiple roles in the body and serve many different functions. These functions include being modified to make eicosanoids (affecting pain and inflammatory processes); regulating steroid production and hormone synthesis; regulating pressure in the eyes, joints and blood vessels; mediating the immune response; regulating smooth muscle and autonomic reflexes; are needed for oxygen transport from red blood cells to tissues; are necessary for kidney function and fluid balance; preventing clumping of red blood cells; regulating mood and depression, and regulating nerve transmission.

Every cell and organelle within the cells are encased and protected by membrane made of phospholipids. A major component of these phospholipids are essential fatty acids that control membrane fluidity and the ability to pass important nutrients into the cells and toxins out of the cells. Without adequate essential fats the cell membranes can become rigid and dysfunctional.

We offer an essential fats product, called Hank & Brian’s Essential Fats Plus E. This product contains EPA and DHA from highly purified fish oils, GLA from cold-processed borage oil, and full spectrum Vitamin E consisting of all eight natural forms of tocotrienols and tocopherols. These mixed forms of Vitamin E perform many beneficial functions in the body (such as lowering cholesterol and clearing plague out of blood vessels) and also protect the essential fats from oxidizing in the capsule and in your body. The ratio of EPA to GLA in this products is 4:1, which is considered the ideal ratio for optimal effects in the body.

FOUNDATIONAL #4: HIGH-RNA SUPERFOODS, INCLUDING REJUVENATE! FORMULAS

Our recommendations for foundational formulas now include high-RNA superfoods. We first recommend a multivitamin, an antioxidant / Vitamin C formula, and essential fatty acids. After these three foundational formulas are established in a daily regimen, the addition of a high-RNA superfood further contributes to excellent health.

We include high-RNA superfoods (and especially recommend Rejuvenate!™ superfoods) in our foundational supplements program after having studied the remarkable healing powers of chlorella and other high-RNA nutrients for six years. When taken in sufficient amounts, superfoods high in ribonucleic acid (RNA) show remarkable effects in the body. These effects include higher energy levels, greater endurance, better muscle strength, easier breathing, lower cholesterol levels, reductions in angina pains (and other positive cardiovascular effects), more stable blood sugar, better vision, and a more youthful appearance (smoother skin, fewer wrinkles, etc.), and many other benefits.

Our assessment of dietary nucleic acids being essential nutrients is shared by scientists on the cutting-edge of nutrition. In Nucleic Acid Nutrition and Therapy, Dr. Benjamin S. Frank asserts that dietary nucleic acids (RNA, DNA) are “essential nutrients of human beings” as distinct from non-essential, accessory nutrients. He considers 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” (Frank).

After having studied the positive health effects of dietary RNA in the clinic for more than 20 years, Dr. Frank asserted:

“[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.”

Dr. Frank’s conclusion that RNA is more essential to health than any other single nutrient underscores the central role of nucleic acids for human health.

We share Dr. Frank’s conclusions regarding the “essential” nature of nucleic acids and nucleotides, and their central role in human health. In fact, it is our direct experience with the health-building effects of dietary nucleic acids (e.g., in chlorella and other foods) that led to further our knowledge of nucleic acid nutrition and therapy, and develop our line of high-RNA Rejuvenate!™ superfoods. Rejuvenate!™ superfoods both provide optimal levels of nucleic acids and include supporting nutrients (e.g., d-ribose, coenzyme B vitamins), which maximize the beneficial effects of dietary RNA for health.

The nucleic acids in Rejuvenate!™ superfoods work directly with HPDI’s other foundational nutritional supplements to create, sustain, and support optimal nutrition for health and healing. We recommend Rejuvenate!™ and/or other high-RNA superfoods as part of program of foundational nutritional supplements that work together to provide full spectrum nutrition. It is because foundational formulas provides a full spectrum of essential nutrients that it is critical to success in our Rejuvenation Program, and to create, maintain, and/or rebuild health.

FOUR FOUNDATIONAL SUPPLEMENTS  =  POWERFUL SYNERGY FOR HEALTH

The best news with respect to dietary nucleic acids is that while they are essential nutrients, their inclusion in our foundational supplement program powerfully leverages their effects by facilitating greater synergy among all nutrients available to the body via foundational supplements. This synergy means the total package of nutrients delivered by all four types of foundational supplements combined delivers far more health-building nutrition than any single foundational formula delivers individually. That’s synergy in action.

The means by which all four foundational supplements succeed in creating and contributing to powerful health relates less to the fact that each singly provides an ‘essential’ piece of the nutrition puzzle. Success relates instead to the fact that when all foundational formulas are taken together, their healthy benefits multiply and greatly exceed the sum of benefits provided by individual foundational formulas. This is a primary reason we emphasize establishing foundational nutrition both within our Rejuvenation Program, and more generally as a starting point for the creation of powerful health.

MAXIMIZING HYDROGEN SUPPLEMENTS—MEGAHYDRATE AND ACTIVE H2 ULTRA—WITH pH ADJUST ALKALINIZING FORMULA

Fred Liers PhD pH adjust hydrogen supplementsToday, I talk about hydrogen supplements with a twist. Specifically, I discovered that a unique combination of three products—MegahydrateActive H2 Ultra, and pH ADJUST Alkalinizing Formula—provides surprising benefits. I put this combination, or concoction, into water to produce a hydrogen-infused drink with potent antioxidant quenching capacity that also rapidly alkalinizes the body (increasing pH levels and buffering acids), and provides the important minerals potassium and magnesium.

Combining hydrogen supplements with pH ADJUST creates a hydrogen-infused drink giving you benefits from 1) Two types of hydrogen, hydride (H-) and molecular hydrogen (H2) with antioxidant and energizing properties, 2) Increased pH levels (greater alkalinity) to balance pH levels, 3) Bicarbonates helping buffer acids and replenish bicarbonate reserves in the body, and 4) Essential minerals (potassium, magnesium) in bio-available forms.

In practical terms, this drink is energizing, anti-aging (party due to free-radical quenching effects), hydrating, and powerfully alkaline-forming! What this means for you might be a revolutionary drink that by giving your body all the antioxidant benefits of hydrogen plus increasing your pH levels turns can significantly improve multiple aspects of health.

By buffering acidity and making you alkaline, this drink can improve things like the strength of bones and teeth (via buffering and remineralization), supports kidney health (as kidneys are responsible for your bicarbonate reserves), boosts oxygenation (and thereby supports easier breathing) because alkaline cells hold more oxygen, and stops or reduces acid indigestion, acid reflux, and other acid-related problems. That could be just the beginning of the benefits you might receive because increasing your pH levels and normalizing alkaline conditions (i.e., pH 7.35–7.45) positively impacts many systems in the body.

WHY COMBINE pH ADJUST AND HYDROGEN SUPPLEMENTS?

pH Adjust, Megahydrate, and Active H2 Ultra are good supplements when used by themselves. That is, they work well as stand alone supplements. But I have found the combination of all three offers maximum antioxidant, alkalization, buffering, and mineralization benefits.

pH Adjust maximizes the effects of hydrogen supplements by boosting alkalinity and buffering capacity through the inclusion of effective, natural forms of important minerals and bicarbonates, including: potassium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate, potassium glycinate, and sodium bicarbonate.

SYNERGY: HOW EACH PRODUCT CONTRIBUTES TO THE DRINK

There are potent synergistic effects to the combination of all three products. In particular, using both hydrogen negative ions (H-) or hydride and molecular hydrogen (H2) creates cascade effects in which hydrogen ions “recycle” themselves as antioxidants. The addition of pH Adjust brings its own set of benefits.

MEGAHYDRATE provides hydride or hydrogen negative ions (H-), also known as anions, that act significantly as antioxidants. These hydrogen ions can last up to three weeks in water. In the body, after the H- has donated its electron, it becomes simply “H” and proceeds to pair with another hydrogen atom to form H2 (molecular hydrogen), thereby continuing to exert free-radical quenching action. This is a major benefit of consuming H- in the quantities provided by Megahydrate.

ACTIVE H2 ULTRA provides molecular hydrogen (H2) directly into the body in significant amounts. Molecular hydrogen offers many benefits to the body, especially antioxidant benefits. Being an extremely small molecule, molecular hydrogen can enter into the smallest cellular compartments, including the nucleus of the cell, a place where most antioxidants are too large to enter) where it can exert its antioxidant capabilities. Molecular hydrogen actually provides a wide range of health benefits. (See the Molecular Hydrogen Institute (MHI) website for more information.)

pH ADJUST Alkalinizing Formula provides effective alkalinizing and buffering functions, as well as minerals (like potassium and magnesium) and bicarbonates needed for health. It is a fluffy, white powder that mixes easily in water, teas, coffee, and other liquids. It is formulated to rapidly increase pH levels, and acts as a buffering agent to balance pH in the body.

pH Adjust was created by my father, Dr. Hank Liers, HPDI’s founder and formulator of all “Dr. Liers Original” supplements. Dr. Hank been designing effective nutritional supplements since before 1988, the year he founded HPDI.

ACID-BASE BALANCE CRITICAL FOR HEALTH

Acid-base balance is critical in the body, where a pH level of 7.35–7.45 must be maintained. Modern diets and lifestyles tend to be acidifying for the body. Diets high in animal foods that are not adequately balanced with vegetable foods lead to acidity. Other factors include overconsumption of grains, alcohol, and other acid-forming foods. Stress can also play a role due too the acidifying effects of stress hormones like cortisol.

Moreover, the aging process itself depletes bicarbonate reserves. As noted, pH Adjust contains bicarbonates that help replenish bicarbonate reserves necessary for buffering acids. Finally, a significant portion of the population has low intake of potassium and magnesium, which pH Adjust includes as part of its design.

pH Adjust also includes sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), which is a well known acidity buffer and alkalinizer. For users, advantages of pH Adjust over pure sodium bicarbonate include reduced sodium intake, improved taste, and the provision of potassium and magnesium.

POTASSIUM & MAGNESIUM FOR HEALTH

Potassium is critical in the body not only for alkalinity, but also for its role in the sodium-potassium pump which is important in the production of cellular energy (ATP) and for preventing too high levels of sodium from entering cells.

Magnesium is essential in the body and plays a role in wide range of functions, including cellular energy production, immune function, muscle and connective tissue health, and more than 400 enzyme reactions.

pH ADJUST is a highly effective buffering formula, which tends to bring pH levels (low or high) back into the optimal range (7.35-7.45). This buffering capacity means users can both avoid acidosis (high acidity) and alkalosis (high alkalinity).

MAKE THE DRINK

OPTIMIZE MEGAHYDRATE & ACTIVE H2 ULTRA BY ADDING pH ADJUST

Start with 8–16 ounces of fresh, purified water. Add 1–2 scoops of pH ADJUST, 1–2 capsules (or 1-2 scoops) of MEGAHYDRATE, and 1–2 ACTIVE H2 ULTRA tablets. Add the Active H2 Ultra tablets last, and let them effervesce completely (about 1 minute) before drinking.

This alkaline-forming, hydrogen-infused water is best taken on an empty stomach. It is ideal to drink in the morning or the afternoon (away from food). Allow at least 15–30 minutes before eating, or see what works for you. I sometimes eat light foods 10 minutes after taking this drink.

I recommend testing your pH levels (salivary and/or urinary) using pH test paper (litmus paper). pH test paper gives you a way to accurately track your pH levels. You can also use it to measure the pH of foods you consume, such as hydrogen-infused water and drinks containing pH Adjust.

Note: Many HPDI customers use pH Adjust in other drinks, including tea, coffee, and ketogenic coffee. Coffee can be acidic and acid-forming beverage, so adding pH Adjust helps buffer the acidity. Many users say pH Adjust tastes mild or good in coffee, and some say it adds a certain creaminess to it.

USE THIS ALKALINIZING HYDROGEN DRINK!

The only way you will know how beneficial hydrogen-infused water with pH Adjust can be—or how well it works for you—is to make it and use it! You will likely find yourself surprised by how energizing, alkalinizing, and mineralizing it truly is for you. And how good you feel when you drink it!

Consider testing the pH of your water first using pH test paper. Many people drink highly acidic water (pH 6 or less) without realizing it. Just because your water is filtered or purified does not necessarily mean it is alkaline. pH Adjust can “fix” this problem. Other people report that their water is highly alkaline (8.0+). Either way, pH Adjust can buffer the water to put it into the range slightly alkaline range of about 7.35–7.45. If you have extremely acidic water, you might need to use two servings of pH Adjust in 8–16 ounces of water. Play with it.

Let us know how this works out for you. We welcome your feedback and success stories!

MANY OTHER WAYS TO USE pH ADJUST

Hydrogen supplements and pH Adjust are made for each other, and create wonderfully alkalinizing hydrogen-infused water. But there are other ways to use pH Adjust. As I mentioned, you might like to read about making pH Adjust Coffee or Ketogenic Coffee using pH Adjust. Or watch my videos below.

pH ADJUST COFFEE – MAKE ALKALINE COFFEE

Fred Liers PhD pH Adjust coffeeToday I show how to use pH ADJUST Alkalinizing Formula to make coffee alkaline. When pH Adjust is added to coffee, it rapidly changes from an acidic pH level to an alkaline pH level.

When you drink alkaline coffee, you are helping your body keep the healthy pH level of 7.34–7.45 it strives to maintain. Moreover, by changing to an alkaline state from an acidic state, you avoid health issues known to be associated with acidosis or ongoing, highly acidic pH levels.

pH ADJUST makes an already health-giving beverage into an alkaline-forming powerhouse supporting your best heath and brain performance. pH Adjust also effectively increases pH when used in water, juices, smoothies, or your favorite beverage.

pH ADJUST works by providing key minerals potassium (bicarbonate and glycinate) and magnesium (carbonate), as well as some sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) that act synergistically to boost pH levels in the body. HPDI recommends users measure pH using litmus paper to accurately test their pH levels.

Ideally your body pH is 7.35–7.45. Coffee itself is typically acidic with pH levels of about 5.0 to 6.0. pH Adjust therefore is an ideal supplement for adding into coffee to increase the pH of the coffee you drink and thereby increase your pH levels.

WHAT IS pH ADJUST?

pH ADJUST is an alkalinizing formula (powder) that is designed to increase pH levels in the body rapidly and effectively for good health.

Here is how we describe pH ADJUST on the label: “Alkalinizing Formula, 250 gm – Alkalinize with Potassium Bicarbonate, Magnesium Carbonate, Potassium Glycinate, and Sodium Bicarbonate”

pH ADJUST Features and Benefits

• Alkalinize with Potassium and Sodium Bicarbonate and Magnesium Carbonate

• Helps Counteract Overly Acidic Conditions; Increases pH Levels in the Body

• Balanced Supplemental Minerals; Unique 3:1 Potassium to Sodium Ratio Improves Taste and Reduces Salt Intake

• Tastes Good – Easy to Use Fluffy Powder

• 250 One-Gram Servings Per Container (250 grams)

• Suitable for Vegetarians & Vegans; Gluten-Free

pH ADJUST may be used to assist in overly acidic conditions in the digestive tract, blood, and kidneys; increase salivary and urinary pH to healthy levels; and to supplement the body with the minerals potassium, magnesium, and sodium.

INGREDIENTS: pH ADJUST contains (in powder form): potassium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate, potassium glycinate, and sodium bicarbonate.

Each one gram serving (about ¼ tsp) contains about 300 mg of bicarbonate, 260 mg of carbonate, 133.4 mg of potassium ((from KHCO3 & glycinate), 99.1 mg of magnesium (from MgCO3), 48.1 mg of sodium (from NaHCO3) and 100 mg of glycine.

DIRECTIONS: As a dietary supplement, take ¼ tsp in 4–8 ounces of purified water preferably away from food, or as directed by a health care professional. For extremely acidic conditions, try 4–10 doses per day, depending on acidity level. Use pH paper to ensure pH levels remain balanced, and do not become too alkaline (alkalosis may occur above pH 8.2).

TEST pH LEVELS: The best way to test pH levels is to use litmus paper, which HPDI offers in rolls (Hydrion brand) for this purpose. You can test both salivary and urinary pH. Advantages of pH paper include rapid results, ease of use, and cost effectiveness.

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT pH ADJUST

pH ADJUST is fluffy white powder that mixes into water, juices, other liquids, and foods. It acts rapidly to raise pH levels in the body. It is easy to use, mild-tasting, and highly effective for balancing pH levels. It is gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan/vegetarian, and contains no artificial ingredients.

NUTRITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS AND APPLICATIONS

The minerals potassium, sodium, and magnesium are key substances that are involved in many important functions in the body. When combined in bicarbonates (potassium & sodium), carbonates (magnesium), and glycinate (potassium) these chemicals can help to adjust and balance pH levels that are crucial to body function.

pH ADJUST provides a 3:1 ratio of potassium to sodium. This ratio keeps potassium levels relatively high with respect to sodium. The processed food diets with a high protein and low vegetable content consumed by many people in the US and elsewhere produce conditions in the body of acidity. This in turn leads to decreased oxygenation of our cells and a greater amount of anaerobic processes in metabolism. This, in turn, leads in inadequate ATP (energy) production and the presence of unwelcome anaerobic cells and organisms.

BICARBONATE

Bicarbonate is a major element in our body. Secreted by the stomach, it is necessary for digestion. When ingested, for example, with mineral water, it helps buffer lactic acid generated during exercise and additionally reduces the acidity of dietary components. Additionally, it has a preventive effect on dental cavities. Each ¼ tsp of pH ADJUST contains about 300 mg of bicarbonate.

Bicarbonate is present in all body fluids and organs and plays a major role in the acid-base balances in the human body. The first organ where food, beverages and water stay in our body is the stomach. The mucus membrane of the human stomach has 30 million glands which produce gastric juice containing not only acids, but also bicarbonate. The flow of bicarbonate in the stomach amounts from about 24 mg/hr for a basal output to about 73 mg/hr for a maximal output.

Thus, at least half a gram of bicarbonate is secreted daily in our stomach. This rate of gastric bicarbonate secretion is 2–10% of the maximum rate of acid secretion. In the stomach, bicarbonate participates in a mucus-bicarbonate barrier regarded as the first line of the protective and repair mechanisms. On neutralization by acid, carbon dioxide is produced from bicarbonate.

One serving (about ¼ tsp) of pH ADJUST contains about 300 mg of bicarbonate.

CARBONATE

pH ADJUST contains about 260 mg of carbonate (and 99 mg of Mg) in the form of magnesium carbonate. Magnesium carbonate is used as an antacid that gets converted to Magnesium Chloride (MgCl) and CO2 by stomach acid. MgCl is a well absorbed form of magnesium.

TRY pH ADJUST IN YOUR COFFEE

We strongly recommend trying pH Adjust in your coffee (or ketogenic coffee) to help alkalinize the body rapidly. Many people gain major benefits from drinking this simple, easy-to-use formula that is highly effective for raising pH levels. Beyond coffee, it works well in other drinks! Like water, teas, juices, or smoothies. Try pH Adjust and see how effectively it can alkalinize you.

TASTY SMOOTHIE WITH REJUVENATE! BERRIES & HERBS

Fred Liers PhD rejuvenate! berries & herbsToday I make a tasty smoothie with the new, improved REJUVENATE!™ BERRIES & HERBS superfood. In fact, Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs is likely the most delicious among HPDI’s Rejuvenate! superfoods, as it contains for types of real organic berries: Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries, and Cranberries. This uber-berry superfood was born for smoothies.

Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs is a uniquely healthy superfood that not only tastes amazingly good, but its high berry content gives it an ultra-high antioxidant value (ORAC) of 14,270 units per serving—an exceedingly high ORAC value compared to typical “superfood” formulas.

Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs provides 14.6 gm of organic protein (including organic pea and organic rice). It includes a potent cell-protective herbal complex (including green tea extract, ginger, turmeric, astragalus, burdock, dandelion, and rhodiola). In addition, it contains a built-in multivitamin sub-formula including coenzyme vitamins and other highly assimilable forms of important micronutrients.

I especially love Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs because my father Dr. Hank Liers formulated it to provide the most dietary nucleic acids per serving—390 mg (dietary RNA/DNA)—the most per serving in any Rejuvenate! superfood. Sources of dietary nucleic acids in Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs include nutritional yeast, yeast extracts, and CGF (chlorella growth factor).

Dietary nucleic acids are proven to provide significant benefits for health. Studies by pioneering nucleic acid researcher Benjamin S. Frank, MD, PhD indicate effects such as greater endurance, easier breathing (anti-anoxic effect), increased energy (ATP production), improved functional strength, warmer body temperature (e.g., cold resistance), and other effects. Dr. Frank asserts that dietary nucleic acids are essential nutrients, not unlike vitamins and minerals (Dietary Nucleic Acid Nutrition & Therapy).

rejuvenate berries & herbs

Considering all the benefits conferred by dietary nucleic acids, you really cannot go wrong by consuming more of them daily. And Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs helps you do that by providing nearly 400 mg of dietary RNA/DNA per serving. That is a therapeutic dose which means you stand to gain all the benefits they confer. Depending on who you are and your health status, that could mean a lot in terms of helping you be healthier.

In sum, Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs uniquely offers: 1) High RNA (dietary nucleic acids), 2) High Antioxidant Levels, 3) Herbal Sub-Formula, 4) High Protein, 5) Built-in Multivitamin, and 6) SUPER TASTE—that is super delicious in your superfood smoothies.

You just cannot get all these benefits in ANY other superfood, including other Rejuvenate! superfoods, each of which is formulated with a specific purpose. For example, Rejuvenate! PLUS is designed to provide significant levels of greens (think chlorella and spirulina), but lacks berries. Within its berry bailiwick, Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs truly stands alone as one-of-a-kind.

REJUVENATE! BERRIES & HERBS highlights:

• Delicious Berry Flavor Bursts with Real Organic Berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cranberries)!
• Powerful Organic and Wildcrafted Cell-Protective Herbs
• High Antioxidant (ORAC) Value of 14,270 units per serving!
• Contains Multiple Prebiotics Supporting Your Microbiome
