REJUVENATE! BERRIES & HERBS – SUPERFOOD FORMULA UPDATED

Dr. Hank Liers, PhD Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs superfoodToday I talk about my REJUVENATE!™ BERRIES & HERBS high-RNA superfood. I designed it to be a super-delicious, intensely berry flavored superfood with no greens. I put in real organic berries—BLUEBERRY, STRAWBERRY, RASPBERRY, and CRANBERRY—so it bursts with true berry flavors! I recently updated the formula, so it is is more delicious and nutritious than ever.

REJUVENATE! BERRIES & HERBS – A COMPLETE SUPERFOOD

Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs is a delicious high-RNA (390 mg), high-protein (14.6 g) (organic pea and organic rice), high-antioxidant (ORAC value of 14,000+), high fiber (13 g) superfood with a creamy smoothness and rich berry flavor that tastes beyond great! It also boosts health with a complete multivitamin-multimineral sub-formula and important cell-protective herbs (herbal complex) that includes ginger, dandelion, burdock, turmeric, green tea extract, astragalus, and many other health-building herbs.

How to use Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs? Just mix in water, juices, nut milks, or smoothies to create a drink with superb health benefits. Or use it creatively in foods, such as nut butters, salads, fruits, sauce/dressings, or desserts. It tastes so good, some people like to eat it by itself—or mixed in a little purified water.

HEALTHY AND HIGH-RNA BY DESIGN

Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs is among HPDI’s premier high-RNA superfoods. That is, Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs is one of three Rejuvenate! superfoods, which are the world’s first—and only—dedicated high-RNA superfoods. High-RNA nutrition means high in dietary nucleic acids, which Dr. Benjamin S. Frank considers to be essential nutrients, like vitamins and minerals (Dietary Nucleic Acid Nutrition & Therapy). Dr. Frank’s studies demonstrate many benefits of nucleic acids, including: greater energy, endurance, functional strength, easier breathing (anti-anoxic effect), as well as cardiovascular benefits and cosmetic benefits (smoother skin and a more youthful appearance).

Highlights of Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs:

• Delicious Berry Flavor Bursts with Real Organic Berries!
• Powerful Organic and Wildcrafted Cell-Protective Herbs
• High ORAC Value (~14,270 units)
• 390 mg Dietary Nucleic Acids (RNA/DNA) from Vegetarian Sources
• Multiple Prebiotics Supporting your Microbiome
• Gluten Free, Vegan/Vegetarian, No Artificial Ingredients
• Mixes Well with other Rejuvenate!™ Superfoods

My updated formula (as of 12/2018) features, per serving:

– 2.6 g more protein (14.6 g total)
– Very little sugar (1.2 g total)
– 7.0 g more fiber (13 g total)
– 100 mg of organic BiAloe® aloe vera gel powder with over 18% acemannan
– 700 mcg of folate as 5-MTHF (natural, coenzyme folate)
– A smooth & delicious taste (even better than before!)

Given all the upgrades I recently made to the formula, I certainly hope you will give it a try. I’m so happy with it, and I use it daily. Berries & Herbs hardly feels (or tastes!) like a nutritional supplement. But believe me, there are few superfoods anywhere that provide as much nutrition—or nutrient density!

HIGHEST QUALITY INGREDIENTS – INCLUDING ORGANIC AND WILDCRAFTED

TASTY SMOOTHIE WITH REJUVENATE! BERRIES & HERBS by Fred Liers

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
• Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans & Gluten Free
• Mixes Well with other Rejuvenate!™ superfoods (like Rejuvenate! PLUS and Rejuvenate! Original Greens) and smoothie ingredients.

New, improved REJUVENATE! Berries & Herbs features (per serving):
• 14.6 g protein
• Very little sugar (1.2 g total)
• 7.0 g more fiber (13 g total)
• 100 mg of organic BiAloe® aloe vera gel powder with over 18% acemannan
• 700 mcg of folate as 5-MTHF
• Smooth texture & delicious taste!

There you have it. If you’re anything like me—and you love the taste of real, organic berries—consider Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs to be your greatest ally when it comes it to tasty and healthy superfood nutrition. Make yourself a Berries & Herbs smoothie, and start creating health naturally today! ~

REJUVENATE! PLUS SUPERFOOD — NEW IMPROVED FORMULA

Fred Liers PhD rejuvenate! plus superfoodAs if Rejuvenate! PLUS weren’t already the delicious, nutritious superfood you know and love. Now, Dr. Hank Liers, HPDI’s formulator, has enhanced the formula for a truly remarkable taste and nutrition experience, you must try for yourself to believe!

The name Rejuvenate! Plus remains, but think of it as “version 2.0” because the nutritional upgrades and taste improvements are striking.

By the way, the “new” Rejuvenate! Plus is available now, so you can look forward to a truly remarkable user experience. We are confident you will be more than pleasantly surprised.

You will not believe your tastebuds when you try the new Rejuvenate! Plus. My humble opinion? Dr. Hank (my father and HPDI’s formulator) has knocked it out of the park in his revised formula.

Reports from sample testers have been overwhelmingly positive! Individuals who loved Rejuvenate! Plus unanimously love the new formula even more. That says a lot about this reformulation.

Rejuvenate! Plus sweet green superfood

Rejuvenate! Plus 2.0 – healthy ingredients and taste at whole new level!

Other testers, who preferred our Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs or Original Greens formulas either say they will now add Rejuvenate! Plus to their regimen, or will mix it in with their current favorite Rejuvenate! superfood.

Some individuals sampling the new formula who had never tried it before or previously did not often use Rejuvenate! Plus have decided to use it as their primary superfood—or take it daily.

We couldn’t be happier because these reports confirm the new Rejuvenate! Plus is a significant improvement over previous versions, and make our year-long effort to reformulate the product worth it. These early reports based on product samples show we have succeeded!

Some things haven’t changed: Rejuvenate! Plus remains the most popular and best-selling of all HPDI Rejuvenate superfoods. As always, it provide therapeutic levels (at least 340 mg) of dietary nucleic acids (RNA, DNA), greens (chlorella and spirulina) as in the lighter, sweeter greens (as compared to dark intense green-ness of Rejuvenate! Original greens) that both leads to slower, yet effective detoxification, and is powerfully energizing and cleansing. Rejuvenate! Plus also remains a foundational supplement that retains a complete built-in multivitamin sub-formula.

What then has changed? In short, we have changed a few ingredients, added or upgraded other ingredients, increased protein and nucleic acids (RNA) content, and created better tasting product overall. Here is a brief summary:

The “new” Rejuvenate! PLUS features (per serving):

1) 500 mg more spirulina (1,900 mg total), which actually increases the RNA content by about 15 mg

2) 2.3 grams more protein for a total of 13.9 grams

3) Almost no sugar (just 0.6 g total)

4) 2.3 g of powerful broccoli and alfalfa sprout extract powders

5) 200 mg of organic BiAloe® aloe vera powder with over 18% acemannan

6) 5-MTHF (500 mcg) — a better form of folate

6) An extremely smooth texture, and even more delicious taste—users rate as significantly better than prior versions—which says a lot because Rejuvenate! Plus already tasted great.

In short, these are the changes that make the new, improved Rejuvenate! Plus a significantly better product. Now I will delve a bit deeper into each of these changes, as well as specific changes to ingredients.

Rejuvenate! Plus superfood

The new Rejuvenate! PLUS offers major improvements for optimal health.

REJUVENATE! PLUS IS A UNIQUE, HIGH-RNA SUPERFOOD

Rejuvenate! Plus is one three high-RNA superfoods Hank Liers of HPDI intentionally formulated to provide therapeutic levels of dietary nucleic acids. In this case, that means about 340 mg of nucleic acids per serving, and that has now been increased to at least 355 mg. The fact that Rejuvenate! Plus provides such high levels of dietary nucleic acids makes it—and the entire line of Rejuvenate! superfoods—unique!

A short history lesson: Benjamin S. Frank, MD, PhD discovered the benefits of dietary nucleic acids in the 1960s and 1970s. He performed various studies on humans and animals using various intakes of dietary RNA. He concluded that nucleic acids are essential nutrients like vitamins and minerals. Nucleic acids provide a host of unique health benefits that make getting RNA in your diet important.

After reading of Dr. Benjamin S. Frank’s works (including Dietary Nucleic Acid Nutrition and Therapy and The No-Aging Diet), my father Hank Liers and I decided to formulate a line of superfoods based on the idea of providing high levels of dietary nucleic acids for optimal health. That was 10 years ago.

Rejuvenate! Original Greens launched in 2007. Rejuvenate! Plus came two years later in 2009. Then Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs in 2010. To this day, no other company has created dedicated high-RNA superfoods like HPDI’s Rejuvenate line.

DIETARY NUCLEIC ACIDS IN REJUVENATE! PLUS

What makes Rejuvenate! PLUS—and in fact the entire Rejuvenate! line of superfoods—unique? A single serving provides therapeutic levels (340+ mg) of dietary nucleic acids (RNA, DNA, nucleotides, and nucleosides). Here are a few of the benefits and effects of nucleic acids in the body:

  • HIGHER ENERGY (ATP) PRODUCTION
  • GREATER MUSCLE MASS / STRENGTH / ENDURANCE
  • SMOOTHER SKIN / MORE YOUTHFUL APPEARANCE
  • EASIER BREATHING / “ANTI-ANOXIA” EFFECT
  • ELEVATES TISSUE OXYGENATION
  • BENEFICIAL CARDIOVASCULAR EFFECTS
  • LOWER CHOLESTEROL LEVELS
  • OVERALL PHYSICAL REJUVENATION
  • TEMPERATURE TOLERANCE (COLD/HEAT)
  • IMPROVES LONGEVITY / QUALITY OF LIFE
  • FAR GREATER SUBJECTIVE WELL-BEING

Source: Nucleic Acid Nutrition and Therapy

Nucleic acids perform so many important functions in the body that getting sufficient amounts in the your diet is probably essential, just as Dr. Benjamin S. Frank asserts. That can be difficult since historically they were obtained from fish, organ meats—foods that people today may not consume in sufficiently high amounts for a variety of reasons. These reasons may include issues of taste, emphasis on vegetarian foods, concern about heavy metals or radiation, or lack of availability.

Rejuvenate! Plus in many ways helps take the guesswork from obtaining “essential” dietary nucleic acids by providing a vegetarian, gluten free, and non-GMO source of dietary RNA—along with protein, vitamins, minerals, cofactors, and other important nutrients—in a tasty, easy-to-take powder that stays fresh for months, travels well, and can be taken in a variety of ways from smoothies to plain water!

TRY REJUVENATE! PLUS

You (or your clients) have everything to gain by trying Rejuvenate! PLUS. As you can see, the updated superfood is carefully formulated to help create and maintain optimal health.

When used together with other HPDI foundational supplements and the HPDI supplement system, Rejuvenate! Plus is another “brick in your wall” of good health and can make a huge difference in terms of how you feel, perform, and function in life.

Try the new, improved Rejuvenate! PLUS “2.0” superfood. See for yourself not only how good it tastes, but how good it can help make you feel. That’s goodness all around!

HPDI FOUNDATIONAL SUPPLEMENTS – VIDEO

Fred Liers PhD foundational supplements nutritionDo you know HPDI has a foundational supplements system? And that HPDI’s system of Foundational Supplements is part of the comprehensive HPDI supplements system?

Foundational supplements are basic supplements providing essential nutrients that should be the “foundation” of everyone’s daily regimen. They are the foundation of a complete nutritional supplement program. They are the like the base of a pyramid in a complete nutritional supplement program.

All six HPDI foundational supplements are designed to provide a complete range of essential nutrients to complement a healthy diet and lifestyle. They help ensure sufficient levels of nutrients necessary for good health. And they are the first supplements we recommend taking as part of a complete nutritional supplement regimen.

Foundational supplements are the cornerstone in the HPDI supplement system. That is, HPDI offers a three-tiered system of nutritional supplements: Foundational Supplements, Enhancement Formulas, and Specific-Condition Formulas. The three “tiers” combined represent a complete nutritional supplement program. When customized appropriately to meet the needs of individuals, the three tiers of nutritional supplements help create optimal health.

You can visualize the HPDI supplement system as a cone or pyramid having a base of Foundational Supplements ascending toward an apex of Enhancement Formulas and Specific Condition Formulas.

foundational supplements HPDI system

The HPDI Supplement System includes six Foundational Supplements—four primary and two secondary—including multivitamins, vitamin C/antioxidants, essential fats, and Rejuvenate! superfoods.

HPDI FOUNDATIONAL SUPPLEMENTS

We recommend six basic types of foundational supplements. The six categories are: 1) multivitamin formulas, 2) vitamin C / antioxidant formulas, 3) essential fats, 4) high-RNA foods (Rejuvenate! superfoods), 5) gut health formulas, and 6) hydrogen formulas.

We further break down the six foundational supplements into “primary” and “secondary” foundational supplements. The first four (listed above) being primary and the last two (gut health and hydrogen formulas) being secondary. This doesn’t mean that gut health or hydrogen formulas are less essential, depending on the person. But typically we recommend the first four in order.

We established the original three types of foundational supplements about 1988. We have always recommended multivitamins, vitamin C and antioxidants, and essential fats, as being the most important nutritional supplements for establishing and maintaining general health.

We later added high-RNA foods (like Rejuvenate! superfoods) as a fourth type of foundational supplement because research indicates dietary nucleic acids are essential nutrients—see our many articles on dietary nucleic acids, Dr. Benjamin S. Frank, and about Rejuvenate! superfoods (Original Greens, PLUS, and Berries & Herbs).

Two categories of foundational supplements were added more recently: gut health formulas (especially Restore) and hydrogen formulas. Hank wrote an article (Amending the HPDI Foundational Program) about these changes in April 2016. We added these two categories after much consideration regarding their benefits, and have written extensively about them (see Resources below).

The entire HPDI supplement system is depicted (above) as a cone. The six types of foundational supplements form the base of the cone. Enhancement Formulas and Specific-Condition formulas sit above toward the apex.

ultimate protector foundational supplements

Ultimate Protector Nrf2 formula is a foundational supplement in the vitamin C / antioxidant category.

FOUNDATIONAL SUPPLEMENTS: BEST PRACTICES

I recommend using all six types of HPDI foundational supplements. I personally take the following supplements (below) and present them here as an example of how they can be integrated into a complete supplement regimen. Foundational Supplements I take:

1. Multivitamin: Hank & Brian’s Mighty Multi-Vite! (4 per day in divided doses)

2. Vitamin C / antioxidants: PRO-C (6–8 per day) and Ultimate Protector Nrf2 activator (8–12 per day)

3. Essential Fats: Essential Fats Plus E (4 per day)

4. Rejuvenate!™ superfood: All three Rejuvenate! superfoods (2–8 scoops per day)

5. Gut Health: RESTORE For Gut Health (1–2 ounces per day) and/or a soil-based probiotic (1–3 per week)

6. Hydrogen: Megahydrate (2–6 per day) and/or VR Tablets

Taking one supplement from each of the six foundational supplement categories helps build, support, and maintain optimal health.

We at HPDI recommend everyone take one of each type of foundational supplement. That is, we suggest an individual select for personal use a multivitamin, vitamin C/antioxidant formula, essential fats formula, Rejuvenate!™ superfood (or other high-RNA superfood), hydrogen product, and at least one gut health product (typically RESTORE) depending on their gut-health needs).

Likewise, we suggest health care professionals recommend for their clients one of each of the six types of foundational supplements.

The other two categories in the HPDI nutritional supplement system are Enhancement Formulas and Specific-Condition Formulas (see cone diagram). These are not foundational supplements. However, I include the supplements I take in these categories to show how Enhancement and Specific-Condition Formulas fully integrate with Foundational Supplements to form a complete supplement program providing not only essential nutrients required for health, but also particular nutrients required by me. This makes the system fully “customizable” to individual needs.

Enhancement Formulas I take include: B-Complex-50 (B complex), Myo-Mag (magnesium/malic acid), Ubiquinol-50, Bone Guardian, and Vitamin D3 Plus.

Specific Condition Formulas I take include: Joint Health Formula, Allergy Support Formula, Eye & Vision Formula, Intestinal Rejuvenation Formula, and Warrior Mist (pain topical), and Warrior Sleep (sleep topical).

Thus, I take supplements from all three categories (Foundationals, Enhancements, and Specific-Condition) in the HPDI supplement system. However, I always prioritize foundational supplements—I take them first—because they are the all-important “base” on which my personal supplement program rests.

Foundational supplements ideally are the base on which your supplement program—or those of your clients—rests, as well.

We have seen the results of taking a complete set of foundational supplements. They work because the nutrients they provide are needed by everyone.

foundational supplements multivitamin

Muti Two Caps is a high-potency multivitamin with advanced forms for optimal utilization in the body.

SYNERGY OF FOUNDATIONAL SUPPLEMENTS

Individuals who use all six types of foundational supplements do best in terms of optimizing health. The reason is that all six foundational supplements provide nutrients required for good health.

All six types of foundational supplement provide unique benefits. Yet, each performs functions required by the human body for good health. That is one reason when they are combined they exert synergistic effects for health going far beyond the benefits just using a few types of foundational supplements, depending on individual needs, of course.

A SYSTEM OF FOUNDATIONAL SUPPLEMENTS IS NECESSARY

Individuals benefit from a structured system of supplements that can be tailored to their needs. Otherwise basic nutrients may be left out from daily intake.

For example, I know people who may or may not take a multivitamin. And they may or may not take vitamin C. Yet, they may take calcium for their bones, glucosamine for their joints, and lutein for their eyes. Or they may take a low-potency multivitamin providing merely the RDA for all nutrients.

It is fine that individuals take supplements they regard as important or useful. But that does not guarantee that a wide range—and sufficient levels—of nutrients necessary for health are available to the body on a regular basis.

In fact, I regard the supplement intake programs of most persons to be “hit-or-miss.” They may consume nutrients important for a few functions in the body, yet fail to obtain other essential nutrients required for the nutrients they take to work most effectively. We have written extensively on this topic on our website and in blog articles (see below).

Not taking regularly a complete set of foundational supplements likely means key nutrients (and key levels of nutrients) go missing. Over time, this means fewer and lower levels of nutrients available to support the body’s needs for them at levels known to sustain the good health.

The best way to ensure a sufficient range of nutrients at plentiful levels is to take foundational supplements. After a baseline of nutrients is established by taking foundational supplements, additional supplements can be added, as necessary. Following such a system and using it to customize a personal supplement regimen means there is a far better opportunity to obtain essential nutrients on a daily basis. And not to miss nutrients that help create optimal health.

rejuvenate superfood foundational supplements

High-RNA foods like Rejuvenate! PLUS superfood provide dietary nucleic acids important for health.

A COMPLETE SUPPLEMENT SYSTEM INCLUDES FOUNDATIONAL SUPPLEMENTS

After obtaining sufficient levels of basic nutrients required for health, then a person can add (or you can recommend) specific nutrients or formulas that target certain problems or issues. This is the basis for HPDI’s creation of Enhancement Formulas and Specific-Condition Formulas.

Nutritional supplements in the categories of Enhancement Formulas and Specific-Condition Formulas “stack” on top of HPDI’s Foundational Supplements (see cone diagram above). In this way, a complete nutritional supplement program begins with the most essential nutrients and continues with customizations based on the unique needs of an individual.

ENHANCEMENT FORMULAS

Enhancement Formulas in the HPDI system are supplements we regard as falling into the next tier in terms of importance, at least for most people. They do not necessarily provide essential nutrients, and yet many people (including myself) benefit significantly from them.

Enhancement Formulas include: magnesium formulas (topical and capsule), Vitamin D3 Plus, Nascent Iodine, Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin), mushroom-based products (like Immune-Assist™), Prolyt (proteolytic enzymes), Digase (plant-based enzymes), and Warrior Mist (topical pain reliever), and many other formulas.

SPECIFIC-CONDITION FORMULAS

In the HPDI system, individuals can add (in a modular way) various formulas and single nutrients designed to support a particular set of needs or a target a specific condition.

We offer a complete range of supplements (almost 100) including a range of supplements formulated to address specific conditions. These include Joint Health Formula, Eye & Vision Formula, Blood Sugar Support, Allergy Support, Prosta Plus, Intestinal Rejuvenation Formula, and many other formulas.

ONE SYSTEM. THREE TIERS. HPDI NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS.

HPDI Foundational Supplements collectively form the base tier of a complete nutritional supplement system comprised of three tiers: 1) Foundational Supplements (six types), 2) Enhancement Formulas (or simply “Enhancements”), and 3) Specific-Condition Formulas.

Foundational Supplements are necessary because they provide nutrients foundational to health. Taking them daily or recommending your clients take them daily can help mean big differences in health, nutrition, and quality of life.

We at HPDI design our nutritional supplements to be the most effective dietary supplements available. HPDI products are known for: 1) Advanced Formulation (including use of superior forms of nutrients), 2) Ultra-High Purity, 3) Avoidance of Harmful Ingredients, and 4) being made with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). For more details, please see The HPDI Difference and our Statement on Additives (Excipients).

At least 40 of HPDI’s products are formulated by Dr. Hank Liers. They fall in all categories in HPDI’s supplement system. They can be found under “Dr. Hank Liers original formulas.”

foundational supplement EFA

Essential Fats Plus E provides well-balanced omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

ADDENDUM: THE BODYSYNC GENETIC TEST & ACTION PLAN

In recent years, genetic tests have become available that show gene variations can cause or predispose a person to serious conditions relating to important body functions such a lessened ability to process synthetic B vitamins (like folic acid), higher blood glucose levels, lower immune system function, and bone density problems relating to variants in the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene, for example.

We recommend a genetic test to determine whether individuals have certain gene variations impacting health. HPDI has teamed with a genetic testing company (BodySync, Inc.) and sells BodySync test kits on our Reseller site. To read about the BodySync genetic test and test kits click here. Genes tested for in the Bodysync test include variations in genes impacting folate assimilation, cardiovascular health, detoxification, bone health, and more. Resellers can purchase the test kits directly from HPDI and retail customers can call us (800-228-4265) to find out how we can help them get a test kit and support them with any associated counseling regarding the results.

Genetic testing allows individuals to gain a clearer picture of where they may require additional or specific nutritional supplementation. In this respect, HPDI foundational supplements can play a significant role in providing the amounts and range of important nutrients that can help mitigate the adverse effects of certain gene variations in addition to diet, exercise, and lifestyle factors. After testing, you will receive a Bodysync Action Plan that makes recommendations for a healthy diet and lifestyle customized to your unique genetic profile.

FOUNDATIONAL SUPPLEMENTS: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

We frequently get questions from HPDI clients and resellers regarding foundational supplements. These questions include:

“Why did you add gut health and hydrogen products to your foundational supplements program?”
We found it necessary to add categories for gut health and hydrogen because they provide nutrients that are support the body and help ensure the foundational supplement system supports health most effectively. You can read more in previous blog articles (see below).

“Which is the better multivitamin: Multi Two or Mighty Multi-Vite!™?”
It depends on whether you need more B vitamins or antioxidants. Multi Two provides more B vitamins and Mighty Multi-Vite™ provides more antioxidants and cofactors. I take a separate HPDI B-Complex-50 formula, so I take Mighty Multi-Vite!™ as my primary multivitamin.

“What are the differences between Rejuvenate!™ Original, PLUS, and Berries & Herbs superfoods?”
They each provide about 340 mg of dietary nucleic acids. Original is the “greenest” with a large percentage of dietary nucleic acids coming from chlorella and spirunlina. PLUS is our most popular and 30% is identical to Original with more protein and a built-in multivitamin complex. Berries & Herbs contains no greens, yet more nucleic acids (390 mg), protein, and a built-in multivitamin. See our Rejuvenate! comparison page for more information.

“Should I take a vitamin C formula with antioxidants like PRO-C or one with Nrf2 activators like Ultimate Protector?”
Both provide vitamin C and Nrf2 activators, but Ultimate Protector provides more types of Nrf2 activators. Ultimate Protector capsules are smaller than PRO-C capsules, so a daily dose may require taking more capsules.

“How important are hydrogen supplements?”
Very important for energy production, recovery, antioxidant functions, and gut health. Hydrogen supplements like VR Tablets and Megahydrate ensure high levels of hydrogen are available in the body.

What are your best products for supporting gut health?
It depends on your needs: cleansing (Intestinal Rejuvenation Formula), probiotic/microbiome support, or tightening tight junctions in the gut (RESTORE)? We offer products for all these purposes. Typically, the first gut health formula we recommend is RESTORE because so many people require extra support for microbiome health and to restore gut integrity.

These are just a few questions frequently asked about HPDI foundational supplements. If you need more information about products, please contact the HPDI office (800-228-4265) or email support@healthproductsdistributors.com.

You can also contact Fred Liers, PhD or Hank Liers, PhD (formulator) with questions you may have regarding specific products, single nutrients, or formulation.

REJUVENATE! LEMONADE – VIDEO

Fred Liers PhD rejuvenate original superfood lemonadeLooking for a natural energy boost? Or a super-power-up, pick-me-up drink? Look no further than Rejuvenate! Lemonade. Rejuvenate! Lemonade offers all the deliciousness of fresh lemonade with the energizing and health-boosting effects of Rejuvenate!™ (Original Greens), the first superfood formulated to provide high levels of dietary nucleic acids (RNA, DNA).

In fact, Rejuvenate Lemonade is among the best—and tastiest—ways to take Rejuvenate! Original Greens. I make 12–32 ounces of Rejuvenate! Lemonade daily. It is especially refreshing in the summer, but it easy to make and drink year-round. Not only does it taste amazingly good, but delivers the all important therapeutic levels of dietary nucleic acids you need daily for good health.

All three Rejuvenate! superfoods offer major energizing effects by providing therapeutic levels of dietary nucleic acids (RNA, DNA). Rejuvenate! superfoods are the only superfoods dedicated to supplying high levels of dietary nucleic acids. Yet, Rejuvenate!™ (Original Greens) is the most densely packed with dietary RNA, providing 340 mg per serving (one small scoop)!! A single container provides 42 servings—sufficient for six weeks of daily use.

MAKE REJUVENATE!™ LEMONADE

Make Rejuvenate! Lemonade with fresh lemons or limes, maple syrup (or other natural sweeteners), purified water, cayenne pepper (optional), and Rejuvenate!™ superfood. If you don’t have fresh lemons or limes, substitute bottled lemon juice (like the Santa Cruz brand organic 100% lemon or 100% lime juice).

REJUVENATE!™ LEMONADE RECIPE

Fresh Lemons or Limes (1–2)
Purified Water (8–32 ounces)
Grade B Maple Syrup (1–2 tbsp)
Cayenne Pepper (1/4 tsp or pinch)
Rejuvenate!™ (Original Greens) (1–4 scoops)

Squeeze the lemons (using a citrus juicer or press). Aim to squeeze 2–4 tbsp juice. Mix lemon juice into your container of water. Add 1–2 tbsp maple syrup or to taste. You can also try using stevia, xylitol, or other natural sweeteners. Add a pinch of cayenne pepper (optional). Mix 1–4 scoops of Rejuvenate! (Original Greens) superfood. In hot weather, try adding a few ice cubes. Stir and enjoy!

Rejuvenate! Lemonade is excellent when modified to include small amounts of other juices (e.g., blueberry or pomegranate) of your choice, or other Rejuvenate! superfoods (Rejuvenate! Plus or Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs).

Rejuvenate!™ Original Greens is the most nutrient-dense, and darkest-green superfood in HPDI’s Rejuvenate! line.

(Sources: Nucleic Acid Nutrition & Therapy, and Chlorella: Gem of the Orient)

SOURCES OF DIETARY NUCLEIC ACIDS
IN REJUVENATE! SUPERFOOD (ORIGINAL GREENS)

• Chlorella
• Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF)
• Nutritional Yeast
• Yeast RNA Extract

Other nutrients included known to support the uptake, assimilation, and use of dietary nucleic acids:

• D-Ribose
• Calcium Folinate
• Methylcobalamin (Vitamin B12)

These nutrients ensure the body effectively utilizes the dietary nucleic acids in Rejuvenate! Original Greens. They also help this unique high-RNA superfood support your health beyond what might be expected of the collection of individual nutrients—a process known as “synergy” that leverages the benefits of all ingredients in Original Greens into something more than the sum of its parts.

FINAL WORDS: WHY REJUVENATE! LEMONADE?

Rejuvenate!™ Original Greens was the first in the Rejuvenate! line of superfoods. More than the others, it is nutrient-dense in terms providing the richest amount of dietary nucleic acids per unit weight. It also remains the most cost-effective per serving.

While it does not contain a built-in multivitamin (like Rejuvenate! PLUS and Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs) or a comprehensive herbal sub-formula (like Berries & Herbs), Rejuvenate!™ Original Greens remains most popular among “hard core” nutrition customers and healthy food purists, as well as individuals seeking the most rapid detoxification and cleansing effects. Does this sounds like you or your clients? Then start with “Original Greens,” make healthy RNA-rich lemonade, and enjoy all the tasty benefits!

The combination of fresh lemonade and Rejuvenate! Original Greens will help hydrate, cleanse, purify, and detox…and simply is a tasty and energy-boosting, power-up drink like no other!

Lemonade made with Rejuvenate! Original Greens packs a potent, high-RNA punch.
