HYDROGEN SUPPLEMENTS – MAKE HYDROGEN DRINKS

Fred Liers PhD hydrogen supplements drinks H2I love hydrogen supplements. So should you. Since starting my morning—and often afternoon—routine of making hydrogen drinks in the kitchen, I have come to appreciate the surge of energy lasting many hours, as well as a host of other benefits.

Most of all, I am amazed how easy hydrogen supplements are to use considering how much they do for you, and how well they complement the supplements I already take—seeming to make them all more effective.

I typically use one or two effervescing Active H2 Ultra tablets in 8–16 ounces of water. Then I like to open one Megahydrate capsule directly in the effervescing water. I wait about 90 seconds to let the tablets stop “fizzing” and then I drink immediately. Allowing the drink to sit for a few minutes is okay, but the sooner you drink it, the higher the concentration of hydrogen.

Note: I used Vital Reaction tablets in this video, but my preferred product is the new, improved Active H2 Ultra (tablets) which dissolves in less than one minute—faster than other hydrogen tablet formulas—thereby preserving more hydrogen in the water.

HYDROGEN SUPPLEMENTS ARE EFFECTIVE

Hydrogen supplements are among the newer, cutting-edge nutritional formulas available to support optimal health. More than 500 scientific articles now support the therapeutic potential hydrogen for essentially every organ system and in 150 human disease models, according to the non-profit Molecular Hydrogen Foundation. In fact, hydrogen is rapidly incorporated into medicine, sports medicine, peak performance, elite fitness, and more.

Hydrogen is an antioxidant. It is also an extremely small molecule that can penetrate even the tiniest cellular compartments. This helps explain how hydrogen works to offer free-radical defense throughout the entire body.

The medical and scientific literature is clear. Hydrogen’s modes of action:

  • H2 reduces oxidative stress as a selective antioxidant and by maintaining homeostatic levels of glutathione, superoxide dismutase, catalase, etc.
  • H2, like other gaseous signaling molecules (i.e. NO, CO, H2S), appears to have cell signal-modulating activity affording it with anti-inflammatory, anti-obesity, and anti-allergy benefits.

We include hydrogen supplements in HPDI’s system of Foundational Supplements. In fact, hydrogen formulas as just one of six foundational supplements. We consider hydrogen a “secondary” foundational supplement usually to be added to a supplement regimen after the four primary ones: multivitamins, antioxidant & vitamin C formulas, essential fatty acids, and superfoods high in dietary nucleic acids (i.e., Rejuvenate! superfoods).

HYDROGEN MEDICINE

The scientific literature discusses the use of molecular hydrogen for many clinical applications, including:

• Metabolic Syndrome including diabetes, hyperlipidemia, arteriosclerosis, hypertension, and obesity

• Ischemia/reperfusion injuries, including cerebral and myocardial infarctions, organ transplants, post-cardiac arrest

• Neuroprotection, including applications for dementia, Parkinson’s disease, depression, and anesthesia

• Inflammation, including applications for polymicrobial sepsis, rheumatoid arthritis, wound healing, and bowel diseases

• Mitochondrial diseases

• Hemodialysis and ventilation

• Aging, including cognitive decline

• Exercise, including applications for fatigue, lactic acid, recovery, and oxidative stress related to heavy exercise

Side effects of cancer therapies, including radiotherapy and chemotherapy

• Many other benefits

HOW HYDROGEN WORKS

According to the Molecular Hydrogen Foundation, there are three ways molecular hydrogen exerts positive health effects.

1. Molecular hydrogen easily diffuses into subcellular compartments where it scavenges cytotoxic oxygen radicals, thereby protecting DNA, RNA, and proteins against oxidative stress.

2. Molecular hydrogen triggers activation or upregulation of additional antioxidant enzymes (e.g., glutathione, superoxide dismutase, catalase, and others) and/or cytoprotective proteins of the body.

3. Molecular hydrogen may be a novel signaling molecule that alters cell signaling, cell metabolism, and gene expression. This may explain its apparent anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, and anti-apoptotic (or anti-cell death) effects.

HYDROGEN IS SAFE

Molecular hydrogen exhibits great safety, and it is regarded as safe for use in the body. It is shown no toxicity even in high concentrations.

Safety standards have long been established for high concentrations of hydrogen for inhalation largely because of the history of high-pressure H2 gas used in deep-water diving gas mixtures for preventing decompression sickness.

Notably, H2 gas combusts only at temperatures higher than 527 °C, and it explodes by chain reaction with oxygen (O2) only in the range of H2 concentration (4–75%, vol/vol).

Molecular hydrogen is used for medical applications safely by several ingestion methods including inhalation of 1–4% hydrogen gas, for example, which exhibits great effectiveness. All these factors mean that hydrogen is safe, easy-to-use, and effective for therapeutic purposes.

DRINKING HYDROGEN-INFUSED WATER

According to the Molecular Hydrogen Foundation, drinking H2-rich water is the easiest, and often the most effective, method for obtaining hydrogen.

Drinking hydrogen-infused water is easy to do, and convenient as you can drink it at home or while traveling. Effective hydrogen products HPDI carries include Active H2 tablets and Megahydrate capsules.

As noted, I make one or two hydrogen drinks daily, first in the morning and then often again in the afternoon. I drink them on an empty stomach. I enjoy a significant energy boost, which helps power me through my day. I gain other benefits, including improved athletic performance, noticeably faster recovery from exercise, and an overall greater sense of well-being.

I highly recommend you try hydrogen supplements for yourself, and then consider them for your clients or patients. Our experience is that most people are pleasantly surprised by the results they get from hydrogen supplements, especially if they have a need for exceptional free-radical defense, or stand to benefit from the proven effects hydrogen uniquely provides (see list above).

Once you try hydrogen, you will want to continue taking it because the benefits are so significant. Let the power of hydrogen starting working for you on a daily basis!

MOLECULAR HYDROGEN (H2) AT FOREFRONT OF HEALTH RESEARCH

Dr. Hank Liers, PhD H2 molecular hydrogen H2I have recently researched the healing potential and benefits of molecular hydrogen (H2). I am quite surprised to see many studies in the last 10 years regarding the healing abilities of H2. Below is an abstract of an article summarizing much of the research that has been carried out. The entire article is available when you click the link.

Molecular Hydrogen H2 water infusion

THE EVOLUTION OF MOLECULAR HYDROGEN: A NOTEWORTHY POTENTIAL THERAPY WITH CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE

From: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3660246/

Abstract:
“Studies on molecular hydrogen have evolved tremendously from its humble beginnings and have continued to change throughout the years. Hydrogen is extremely unique since it has the capability to act at the cellular level. Hydrogen is qualified to cross the blood brain barrier, to enter the mitochondria, and even has the ability to translocate to the nucleus under certain conditions. Once in these ideal locations of the cell, previous studies have shown that hydrogen exerts antioxidant, anti-apoptotic, anti-inflammatory, and cytoprotective properties that are beneficial to the cell. Hydrogen is most commonly applied as a gas, water, saline, and can be applied in a variety of other mediums. There are also few side effects involving hydrogen, thus making hydrogen a perfect medical gas candidate for the convention of novel therapeutic strategies against cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, cancer, metabolic, and respiratory diseases and disorders. Although hydrogen appears to be faultless at times, there still are several deficiencies or snares that need to be investigated by future studies. This review article seeks to delve and comprehensively analyze the research and experiments that alludes to molecular hydrogen being a novel therapeutic treatment that medicine desperately needs.”

BENEFITS OF H2

Also, I have recently become aware of the testimonials of people consuming H2 infused water with powerful results. Several people have reported a great diminution of joint pains, improved breathing, clearer thinking, and better sleep shortly after consuming the water.

HOW TO CONSUME H2

I have been investigating products on the market that contain H2 and these include 1) Tablets producing H2 when dropped into water, 2) Bottles of water that contain H2, and 3) Water ionizers that produce considerable amounts of H2. One of the advantages of molecular hydrogen-infused water is that it is easy to consume it, and convenient to make it wherever and whenever you like.

HPDI now sells a tablet hydrogen product from Purative known as Active H2.

Active H2 is a unique, patent-pending combination of all-natural minerals used to generate molecular hydrogen and electron-rich potential (-ORP). This distinguishes it from existing hydrogen formulas and electrolysis (water ionizers).

Active H2 is easy to use. Simply place one tablet of in a 1/2 liter (16 oz) container of pure water (filled to the top) and close tightly. Wait at least 5–10 minutes for it to completely disintegrate (fizz), and then drink.

A one pint glass mason jar works well as a container for this purpose. However, you can use up to one liter (about 32 ounces) of water in a container, so a quart mason jar also works well. Consume the hydrogen-infused water preferably at least 30 minutes before food.

Active H2 formula consists of a proprietary blend of pure magnesium, malic acid, fumaric acid, and maltose that synergistically act to generate molecular hydrogen and electron-rich potential (-ORP).

Active H2 is the only all-natural add-in tablet providing molecular hydrogen in the amount of greater than 1.8 ppm, That is, one tablet typically generates molecular hydrogen in the concentration of about 2 ppm.

Please look for additional information about molecular hydrogen and Active H2 tablets in forthcoming HPDI blog articles.

D-RIBOSE: ENERGIZING SMART SUGAR

Fred Liers PhD riboseAvoiding excess dietary sugars is one of the healthiest things. But there is one sugar that really is good for you. That sugar is D-ribose.

In fact, D-ribose is so healthy for you, it may be the one sugar you won’t want to live without. A little background to this amazing sugar.

D-ribose is a 5-carbon monosaccharide occurring naturally in living cells. D-ribose importantly forms the carbohydrate parts of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA). That means d-ribose is the sugar essential for the biological function of all living creatures, including humans.

Supplemental D-ribose is associated with many benefits. These benefits include greater energy, less fatigue, and faster muscle recovery. These benefits relate to the capacities of D-ribose as a total body energizer because it boosts energy production (as ATP) in the body.

For individuals suffering low energy levels associated with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), low energy levels, and other problems related to low energy (ATP) production, D-ribose can mean a significantly higher level of energy. In cases of extremely low energy, it can mean the capacity to function more normally.

ribose energy woman power health

D-ribose energizes every cell in our bodies.

Athletes and bodybuilders were among the earliest to recognize D-ribose for purposes of improving performance and recovery times. D-Ribose also exerts anti-anxiety, stress reduction, and potential anti-depressant properties. There is additional evidence suggesting that supraphysiological amounts of ribose may have cardioprotective effects, especially for the ischemic heart.

Supplemental D-ribose usually comes in the form of a sweet, crystalline, water-soluble powder. It is also available in capsules or tablets, including chewable tablets.

Humans synthesize d-ribose from foods, including glucose and various dietary sugars. But there are benefits to supplemental D-ribose. One of the major reasons is the important role of D-ribose in the production of energy (ATP) in human cells.

D-RIBOSE BENEFITS

• GREATER ENERGY (ATP) PRODUCTION

• FASTER RECOVERY

• REDUCED FATIGUE

• IMPROVES ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE

• SUPPORTS MITOCHONDRIAL FUNCTION

• AIDS CHRONIC FATIGUE AND FIBROMYALGIA

• SUSTAINS CARDIAC AND SKELETAL MUSCLE

• BETTERS PHYSIOLOGICAL FUNCTION UNDER ANAEROBIC CONDITIONS

• SUPPORTS LONGEVITY OF BLOOD CELLS

• ANTI-ANXIETY EFFECTS

• STRESS REDUCTION

D-ribose is heart healthy unlike most dietary sugars (e.g., sucrose).

RIBOSE FOR ENERGY (ATP) PRODUCTION

The body uses D-ribose to generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP).  ATP provides energy for all bodily movements and every chemical reaction in cells. ATP is the source of all energy in the body and it’s constantly broken down and recreated due to the processes of life.

The adenine portion of ATP consists of one molecule of adenine and ribose (i.e., five-carbon sugar). The triphosphate portion of ATP consists of three phosphate molecules. When a phosphate breaks off from ATP, then energy is released. The compound then becomes adenosine diphosphate (ADP), which consists of adenosine and two phosphate molecules. When another phosphate molecule breaks off, it becomes adenosine monophosphate (AMP).

It is well established that ratios of ATP, ADP, and AMP are essential for regulating energy in cells. Under extreme physiological stress (e.g., high-intensity exercise), our cells cannot recreate ATP rapidly enough to supply cells with required energy. Concentrations of ADP and AMP rise causing a reduction in cellular energy. When the body’s rate of ATP use continues exceeding the rate at which it can be generated, cells “lose” nucleotides in order to restore the ratio between ATP, ADP, and AMP.

During anaerobic metabolism, AMP levels can rise within cells, thereby disturbing the ratios of ATP to ADP and AMP. The body can reduce AMP concentrations by degrading AMP to simpler end products resulting in a significant decrease in the adenine nucleotide pool. Under extreme conditions (e.g., prolonged high-intensity exercise or the diminished blood flow to tissues witnessed in ischemia), the adenine nucleotide pool may decrease by 30–50%. These effects can significantly compromise physical performance.

Here is where D-ribose supplementation works to support energy production. Supplemental D-ribose allows the body to bypass relatively slow conversion steps required for recreating the adenosine nucleotide providing critical material for ATP production. That is, D-ribose can increase the speed of nucleotide replacement. This has implications not only for sports performance, but also for general health. D-ribose is especially useful in situations where greater energy may be required, as in low energy, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, or combating the effects of aging.

D-RIBOSE RATE-LIMITING SUGAR FOR NUCLEOTIDE SYNTHESIS

One of the most important aspects of D-ribose for health 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 not only in the synthesis of ATP, but also of coenzyme-A, flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD), nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), DNA, RNA, and other important cellular constituents.

In fact, D-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.

Specifically, human muscle cells (e.g., heart and skeletal muscle cells) do not rapidly replace lost nucleotides because of the lack of two rate-limiting enzymes in the pentose phosphate pathway metabolizing glucose to ribose-5-phosphate. Ribose itself forms 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate, a rate-limiting compound in nucleotide synthesis. As noted, supplemental D-ribose allow the body to bypass the rate-limited steps of the pentose phosphate pathway, thereby accelerating nucleotide synthesis (and salvage).

STOPPING THE VICIOUS CYCLE OF ENERGY DEPLETION

It should not take a genius to figure out that when energy production is optimized, overall health will improve. Yet, the same principle also applies in reverse. That is, there are many instances in which low energy levels can fuel lower energy levels. For example, when illness, stressors, or other factors deplete large amounts of the body’s supply of energy, they can gradually (or not so gradually) lessen the body’s capacity to produce more by overtaxing the energy production system.

This cascade of reduced energy production can become a vicious cycle in which there are few reserves left to support the body’s need for greater energy. D-Ribose is one of the only nutrients that can reverse the downward spiral in ATP production when demands exceed supply. By feeding the body’s own system for producing energy, and thereby supplying the raw material required to produce it, supplemental D-ribose can helps break the cycle of low energy levels.

fatigue ribose natural sugar energy atp cells

Chronic low energy? D-ribose is required for creating energy for all biological functions.

A ROLE FOR SUPPLEMENTAL D-RIBOSE

To recap the importance of supplemental D-ribose: D-ribose increases the rate at which ATP is generated. This improves exercise performance and allows for faster muscle growth. All this is possible because supplemental ribose helps the body bypass the conversion steps needed to create or re-create adenosine nucleotides.

Because replacing adenine nucleotides normally requires a certain amount of time, providing the body with D-ribose supplementally via diet can reduce rates of healing and repair in muscle cells. That is, supplemental D-ribose can increase the speed at which adenosine nucleotides are replaced by providing raw material for the creation of more ATP. That is how D-ribose improves athletic performance and supports optimal energy production, as well as optimal muscle health.

The significance of the science behind ATP production is that almost everyone can benefit from supplemental D-ribose. Whether you are an athlete requiring rapid repletion of energy, a person suffering from low energy levels or chronic fatigue, or anyone who wishes to improve energy production supporting optimal health.

REJUVENATE! SUPERFOODS INCLUDE D-RIBOSE

We at HPDI have focused our efforts on formulating the most effective nutritional supplements and superfoods. When Dr. Hank Liers formulated our original high-RNA Rejuvenate! superfood, he put D-ribose into it. In fact, all of our Rejuvenate! superfoods provide significant amounts of D-ribose.

Rejuvenate! (original greens) provides 1,500 mg D-ribose per serving (one small scoop). Rejuvenate! PLUS provides 1,800 mg per serving (two scoops). Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs provides 2,000 mg per serving (two scoops).

ribose energy dietary nucleic acids rejuvenate superfoods

All Rejuvenate! superfoods provide high levels of D-Ribose.

A major reason HPDI includes D-ribose in its superfoods–and perhaps the most obvious one–is simply that we formulate unique, high-RNA superfoods to support optimal energy production in the body. D-ribose supports that goal by various means.

D-ribose is the rate-limiting sugar for the uptake and assimilation of dietary nucleic acids (RNA, DNA, nucleotides, and nucleosides). This is because D-ribose is actually the sugar backbone of these nutrients. As such, the body requires D-ribose in order to utilize and create (or recreate) dietary nucleic acids.

For example, nucleotides are the molecular building blocks of DNA and RNA. They are chemical compounds consisting of a heterocyclic base, a 5-carbon sugar (ribose or deoxyribose) and at least one phosphate group. They are the monomers of nucleic acids, and 3 or more can bond together to form a nucleic acid.

Nucleosides are glycosylamines consisting of a base (or nucleobase) to a ribose (or deoxyribose) ring. Some nucleosides are cytidine, adenosine, guanosine, and inosine. When nucleosides are phosphorylated in cells, they produce nucleotides (see above).

Thus, D-ribose plays important roles as an essential part of nucleic acids, nucleotides, and nucleosides; in the production of energy (as ATP); and the synthesis and salvage of nucleotides in the body.

Rejuvenate! superfoods are formulated to provide high levels of nucleic acids. D-ribose helps the body optimize its use of nucleic acids and their constituent components. Having D-ribose in our superfoods not only supports energy production directly, but also allows maximum use of the dietary RNA they are formulated to provide.

Rejuvenate! superfoods provide nutrients that boost energy levels significantly and consistently for optimal health, healing, and wellness. The inclusion of D-ribose importantly supports the powerful nucleic acid nutrition these superfoods offer, as well as supplements the body’s intake and synthesis of D-ribose.

ribose energy rejuvenate plus (500g) RNA nucleic acids doctor hank liers original

REJUVENATE! PLUS provides 1,800 mg of D-ribose per serving.

SUMMARY

D-Ribose of one of the most important natural sugars for life and health. It is one of the few nutrients that can boost energy levels naturally. When taken with other important biological nutrients, including dietary RNA, DNA, nucleotides, and nucleosides, D-ribose is truly a nutritional powerhouse that can support good health and the energy levels required to live life to its fullest. We believe the best way to obtain supplemental D-ribose is to consume Rejuvenate! superfoods.

GET RESULTS WITH REJUVENATE! SUPERFOODS

Rejuvenate! superfoods fred liers

Last month I wrote an article about dietary nucleic acids for athletic performance that focused on HPDI’s Rejuvenate! superfoods. I must admit, I learned a thing or two about the very superfoods I’ve helped develop.

For example, I reviewed the studies done in the 1960s and 1970s by Dr. Benjamin S. Frank both using human subjects and laboratory animals. Indeed, Rejuvenate! superfoods are formulated to provide therapeutic levels of dietary RNA for optimal health, healing, recovery, and overall performance, including athletic performance.

How notable then that March was the month we took on a sponsorship of professional cyclist Irena Ossola. She approached us after having tried our Rejuvenate!™ superfoods (specifically Rejuvenate!™ PLUS and Berries & Herbs), which she initially “borrowed” from a friend. After having tried it a few times, she noticed a definite improvement in her performance and her recovery. Irena then approached us, and we have taken her on as as a sponsored athlete. 

rejuvenate! superfoods irena ossola cyclist RNA

Truthfully, we are just as excited to have Irena use and test our superfoods in the world of pro cycling, as she no doubt is to have Rejuvenate™ superfoods (and other foundational supplements) as part of her nutritional program. And of course, to gain the benefits they confer for athletic performance.

In fact, Irena is already gaining real benefits after just a short time. She says,

“I am a full supporter of the Health Products Distributors, Inc. products and using the Rejuvenate! superfoods in my recovery smoothies. I can feel the difference in my workouts and my everyday energy by incorporating them in my already clean diet. This is not just a sponsor testimonial, but honest truth! I raced 3 days last weekend, and have done 5 hard workouts in 7 days and am continually astonished at what my body has been able to do since using the products. Please help support my dream, this cause and allowing me to share my story about being a pro cyclist!!” – Irena Ossola

You see, we’ve read the research studies conducted by Dr. Benjamin S. Frank. We’ve taken Rejuvenate! ourselves. We’ve seen the benefits accrue not only to us, but also to family members, friends, employees, and many customers, including athletes. Indeed, our customers who are athletes report excellent results to us. These customers include runners, cyclists, surfers, hikers, and others.

Until now we haven’t had a pro athlete who can put our superfoods to the test. Why are we so excited? Because we believe in our superfoods and  supplements enough to know that they not only will provide significant nutritional benefits, but also offer unique benefits supporting the intense (and extreme) exercise Irena and other athletes like her perform while training and competing.

REJUVENATE! SUPERFOODS IDEAL FOR ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE

The benefits of dietary nucleic acids include powerful anti-anoxic (tissue oxygenating) effects, as well as muscle building (i.e., creating lean muscle mass in response to exercise), faster recovery, improved endurance, and other benefits from dietary nucleic acids that accrue to maximum levels when the body is exercised at high levels.

Of course, everyone makes gains in health when consuming nucleic acids in foods and superfoods like Rejuvenate!™. But the combination of exercise and nucleic acids definitely produces the greatest results, at least when it comes to athletic performance.

One of our customers who is a seriously devoted runner wrote to us:

“I have been using Rejuvenate! PLUS as I get within a couple weeks of 10k and half marathon races. It provides me with a kick and liveliness that just continues to help improve my personal best results. I gain that extra push to shave off time and perform at my peak. It also makes recovery time much shorter and a lot more effective.”
– Chris Pings, Cañon City, Colorado

It turns out that when we ask our customers who are athletes about their experiences with Rejuvenate!™ superfoods, we routinely receive feedback similar to that reported by Irena Ossola and Chris Pings.

REJUVENATE!™ REVIEWS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES

Back in 2010, the Health Ranger Mike Adams reviewed Rejuvenate!™ Berries & Herbs and Rejuvenate!™ PLUS. He titled his product review of Berries & Herbs “Rejuvenate Berries and Herbs superfood is rich in RNA, plant proteins.”

In Mike’s review of Berries & Herbs, he called it a “10 out of 10!” He also said many other good things about it, specifically recognizing the purity of the product, its advanced formulation, and the unique fact that it’s a high-RNA formula:

“Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs tastes fantastic. So it automatically gets consumed with greater frequency in my household, and that feels good because I know just how impressive its nutritional profile is. It’s made with sprouts protein, hemp protein, brown rice protein, blueberries and so much more. What really makes this product so remarkable is that it’s a high-RNA formula made with nutrients that are specifically chosen for their RNA content such as Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) and RNA extracts of nutritional yeast.” – Mike Adams

You can read Mike Adams’ full review of Berries & Herbs on NaturalNews.com.

rejuvenate! superfoods mike adams review recommended RNA nucleic acids

Later that year, Mike published a product review of Rejuvenate!™ PLUS titled “Rejuvenate Plus superfood is high in DNA and RNA with sprouts, chlorella and more.”

Mike spoke glowingly about the product. He emphasized the fact that Rejuvenate!™ PLUS is not some “pretty” superfood, but rather is formulated for “hard-core nutrition fans who value nutritional density over appearance.”

He also focused on dietary RNA and the nucleic acid research of Dr. Benjamin S. Frank:

“…If you search around for the work of Dr. Benjamin S. Frank and his research on RNA, you may find a rather interesting collection of information about why and how RNA is a crucial element for cellular health….To deliver RNA, this Rejuvenate Plus superfood relies on chlorella, chlorella growth factor (CGF), nutritional yeast and even RNA extracts of nutritional yeast; all combined with other supporting ingredients ..and some very high-end configurations of nutrients such as magnesium malate (not some cheap magnesium oxide) and methylcobalamin (the premium, expensive version of vitamin B12).” – Mike Adams

You can read Mike’s full review of Rejuvenate!™ PLUS. We at HPDI are grateful that Mike Adams has always appreciated the advanced formulation of Rejuvenate!™ superfoods. But he is hardly the only person to appreciate the science behind them.

Dr. Mark Sircus also wrote an article about Rejuvenate!™ PLUS that year. Dr. Sircus, like Mike Adams, personally uses Rejuvenate!™ PLUS. But at that time, Dr. Sircus had just begun with using it, and his experience with it led him to write “Superfood for Cellular Survival.” In his very first paragraph, he states, “This past week I have started using Rejuvenate Plus and I am in love.”

What follows in his review is an extensive discourse on the uses of Rejuvenate! PLUS for healing, detoxification, and even survival. He writes that the “completeness of the ingredients distinguishes this product from others” describing the nutritional balance of PLUS.

Dr. Sircus also talks about how great PLUS tastes:

“What surprised me most was that it even tastes great by itself with just water. In all my years I have not been able to take spirulina with only water. Rejuvenate Plus is a dream with juice, so mixing it in smoothies or blender drinks with fruits, nuts, berries, and/or grains or nut milks is more than wonderful.” – Dr. Mark Sircus, LAc.

Dr. Sircus has since tried all the Rejuvenate!™ formulas, and he recognizes the value of each one. We are especially pleased that he includes them in his various health protocols.

BIG BENEFITS FROM SMALL AMOUNTS OF REJUVENATE!™

We recently discovered a new review of Rejuvenate!™ PLUS posted on AntiAgingAnswers.net. The reviewer opens by saying that Rejuvenate! PLUS is one of her “all time favorite supplements” and that “if you have never been able to tolerate the taste of green powder supplements before, you might change your mind with this one!”

She further states that when she first began using it, she “slept much sounder at night” and “could feel an increased energy shortly after drinking a couple of teaspoons” of it.

Like Dr. Sircus, the reviewer recognizes the completeness of the PLUS formula:

“Rejuvenate! PLUS is unique because while it provides high levels of RNA/DNA , it includes many other ingredients that make it one of the most well-balanced, all-purpose superfoods available.” – Reviewer

She concludes by describing PLUS as a “difference maker” and that she can feel this difference when taking just one tablespoon daily. We at HPDI find her statement interesting because a normal serving size is four tablespoons (about 31 grams), which is two scoops providing 340 mg of dietary RNA.

Her statement us that she gains benefits from just 85 milligrams of dietary RNA daily (plus all the other nutrients in the formula). This amount corresponds with Dr. Benjamin S. Frank’s findings (reported in Nucleic Acid Nutrition and Therapy) that as little as 75–100 mg of RNA daily provides noticeable benefits.

Dr. Benjamin S. Frank not only recognized that relatively small amounts of RNA could exert “clear and marked beneficial effects” and remarkably improve how his subjects felt, but also used this fact as evidence supporting his assertion that dietary nucleic acids are essential nutrients for health (117).

If the reviewer gets beneficial results that make a difference for her health from a single tablespoon of Rejuvenate! PLUS, then how much more benefit might a person — such as an athlete like Irena Ossola — gain from taking higher levels of it? We hope to find out!

Dr. Frank reported that 1,500 mg daily RNA is an optimal amount for human health. More recent evidence suggests that amounts as high as 3,000 mg daily can be utilized effectively under conditions of extreme exercise intensity. For example, Olympic-level athletes or individuals engaged in professional sports.

WELCOME, IRENA & TEAM CLOUD!

We are pleased to sponsor Irena Ossola and her team, Cloud Racing. We especially look forward to seeing her performance improve as she incorporates Rejuvenate!™ superfoods and other foundational supplements into her regimen. Go Irena and GO Team Cloud!!

INTRODUCING PROFESSIONAL RACING CYCLIST, IRENA OSSOLA

Irena Ossola - Powered by Rejuvenate!

Pro cyclist Irena Ossola – Powered by Rejuvenate!™

HPDI is pleased to announce sponsorship of professional racing cyclist Irena Ossola. Irena races at the elite level as part of International French and Canadian 2017 SAS – MACOGEP Pro Cycling Team. She competes full-time in races all across the United States and Europe. Irena is also a cycling coach, bike tour leader, and a graduate of Columbia University. She regularly trains in Santa Fe, New Mexico and Tucson, Arizona.

Recently, Dr. Hank Liers met with Irena to discuss nutrition for high-performance athletes, and her current experience using Rejuvenate! high-RNA superfoods for cycling performance and recovery. Her plan is to continue using Rejuvenate! superfoods and incorporate additional HPDI foundational supplements into her nutrition program.

Irena initially discovered Rejuvenate! superfoods last year as part of her nutrition regimen. She reported increased energy and faster recovery times using as little as one-scoop of Rejuvenate!™ PLUS and/or Berries & Herbs, which she added to her already “clean” diet. She often would combine 1/2 scoop of each formula into a smoothie consumed after training sessions or races. During periods when she paused her intake of Rejuvenate, she noticed recovery took longer.

After recognizing the competitive advantages afforded her by Rejuvenate! superfoods, Irena has become a convert to a high-RNA lifestyle that includes significant levels of dietary nucleic acids daily from two or more scoops of Rejuvenate! PLUS, Berries & Herbs, or original. With HPDI’s nutritional sponsorship, Irena has been able to increase her intake of HPDI’s unique superfoods.

On Facebook she recently wrote about her consumption of Rejuvenate!™ superfoods:

“I am a full supporter of the Health Products Distributors, Inc. products and using the Rejuvenate! superfoods in my recovery smoothies. I can feel the difference in my workouts and my everyday energy by incorporating them in my already clean diet. This is not just a sponsor testimonial, but honest truth! I raced 3 days last weekend, and have done 5 hard workouts in 7 days and am continually astonished at what my body has been able to do since using the products.”

Irena already feels additional increases in energy and experiences faster recovery times as she boosts her intake of Rejuvenate! superfoods. She also has begun incorporating other foundational supplements like Multi Two (caps), Essential Fats Plus E (essential fats, and Ultimate Protector into her regimen.

We at HPDI are excited that we can contribute to Irena’s nutritional program. We anticipate great things to come! You’ll be hearing much more about Irena and her team in the coming months. Again, we are pleased to officially announce that Health Products Distributors, Inc. now sponsors Irena and her elite level women’s cycling team, Cloud Racing.

IRENA OSSOLA: “SHE WORKS” DOCUMENTARY FILM PROJECT

For many reasons this is an exciting partnership! I’m sure we’ll blog a lot in coming months about natural nutritional advantages for athletes. But there is another reason to be excited.

Irena is the highlighted in a new documentary titled “She Works,” about women in professional sports.

Because whether its basketball, soccer, or cycling, professional female athletes such as Irena Ossola typically struggle with a lack of promotion and financial support. The “She Works” video documentary project will feature Irena and will raise awareness and hopefully stimulate meaningful discussions about gender inequality in professional sports.

The “She Works” video project has a shoestring budget of $4,500 raised through a 15-day Kickstarter campaign that ended March 28, 2014. Additional funding contributions are welcome. Please contact us at support(at)integratedhealth.com or 520-896-9193.

If you are interested in sponsoring Irena and/or Team Cloud, you can contact her directly at ossola.irena(at)gmail.com or 505-795-6832. Also, please visit her website (www.OssolaSport.com).
