RACING AND RECOVERY WITH pH ADJUST ALKALINIZING FORMULA

Irena Ossola bike racing recovery pH Adjust alkalinizing formulaEditor’s note: HPDI’s sponsored pro cyclist Irena Ossola is a frequent contributor to our blog. Today she writes about her experience with adjusting and monitoring her pH levels using pH Adjust and pH test strips. ~

I have used HPDI’s pH Adjust alkalinizing formula for about two months, and my experience has been quite interesting. I can see how my body reacts on a chemical level to different stresses—such as racing, travel, training, rest, and different foods I eat. I consistently use pH paper to test my pH first thing when I wake up in order to have a more controlled test.

My primary finding is that after a race my body is quite acidic (pH of 6.3). While in contrast after a day of rest and/or dinner consisting of lots of vegetables and spinach my body is quite alkaline (pH of 7.5 to 8).

TESTING MY pH LEVELS FOR ALKALINITY

While in France and racing very hard, I noticed that taking pH Adjust every morning helped my body feel more balanced and avoid spikes of energy or tiredness. I could rest and sleep more deeply, and train with both greater quality and frequency.

After a month in France of hard racing and training, I began experiencing leg cramping due to the fatigue and travel. I remained consistent in my testing and taking pH Adjust through this difficult period. Initially, my tests were very acidic when the cramps began. Then as my diet consisted of just soup and salad (to hydrate and ease the burden on my digestion/kidneys) the pH test strips showed my pH to be more alkaline.

Also, I read that bicarbonate could help with cramping as it acts as a buffer in the body. So I continued to take the pH Adjust consistently and even increased my doses by adding an evening dose as well, if my afternoon/evening pH test showed my body was acidic (below pH 7).

DIET AND pH ADJUST KEEP ME ALKALINE

During the period of cramping I know pH Adjust helped to reestablish an alkaline environment in my body. This is important in order to heal from the cramping which creates a lot of lactic acid and fatigue in my muscles. I noticed the symptoms were reduced. During the cramping stage, I usually have cramping even when walking, but this time it was limited primarily to the bike. I recovered faster and felt better sooner, which I think is a result of the pH Adjust and the correct diet.

Testing pH levels with litmus paper guides my diet and use of pH Adjust.

Even after travel and during my return to harder training I will continue to take pH Adjust as part of my normal routine. There is nothing else available or on the market that acts so specifically to balance the pH within the body. This is so important as we introduce and put many stresses on our body that take it out of balance. Whether it is environmental or nutritional, these stresses can lead to further problems. So simply taking pH Adjust every morning can help protect against these variables. I feel the difference when I am consistent in taking it, and my body is under constant stresses due to my work as a professional cyclist.

pH Adjust

pH Adjust helps me maintain optimal pH levels—there’s nothing else like it.

JUICE CLEANSE AND RECOVERY

Last month I returned from Europe where I was suffering from some leg cramping, so I decided to do a body cleanup. I was still taking pH Adjust in the morning and my normal supplements, but I also wanted to do a 3–5 day juice cleanse. This helped the recovery as it cleans out my kidneys and gives my digestion a rest. Whenever I return from travel or racing I try to do a juice cleanse to reboot my system.

Me and my bike!

The three day juice cleanse ended up being a great flush, and my legs were recovering very well after all the travel, racing, cramping, and stress.

I did notice some feelings of fogginess in my head during the cleanse. But I was told that this is not uncommon to feel as it could be either from the reduced amount of protein entering the body, or because the toxins are being cleaned out of the system, so the mind is also readjusting to this as well.

I have noticed that the more juice cleanses I do, the faster and easier my body adjusts to the fluid diet. I don’t feel hunger, but just craving for the juice and energy. As long as I have enough juice made and on hand, I don’t feel worried about my ability to nourish my body. Without intense training I really enjoy the cleanse and don’t feel the need or cravings for sugar or certain foods. It simplifies life, and allows me to focus on important things like training and my work as a pro cyclist.

Pro Tip: When going through lots of stress on the body like exercise, illness, surgery, polluted environments, etc., increase the amount of Rejuvenate! superfoods in your diet and eat sardines. Both of these nutritional components will help speed up recovery time, and battle any incoming hazards and risk factors to your body.

EFFECTIVE PAIN RELIEF STRATEGIES WITH WARRIOR MIST

Fred Liers PhD warrior mist effective pain reliefI am excited this month to talk about Warrior Mist, which is an all-natural skin, muscle, and joint support formula. Warrior Mist is a topical formula that is my go-to-product for effective pain relief.

Warrior Mist is highly effective for pain. Indeed, my father Dr. Hank Liers formulated it for rapid pain relief, naturally. Many health care professionals find it useful for their clients.

Being applied topically on skin, Warrior Mist acts quickly at the pain source to stop it. Topical application is an advantage when it comes to rapid relief.

Warrior Mist comes in a pump-spray glass bottle.

NATURAL INGREDIENTS FOR EFFECTIVE PAIN RELIEF

Beyond its effectiveness against pain, what I like about Warrior Mist is that it contains all-natural ingredients. What does that mean? Most of its ingredients are herbal like peppermint oil, lavender oil, and organic coconut and olive oils.

Warrior Mist contains: DMSO (99.999% pure), peppermint oil (the source of menthol in the product), organic olive oil, distilled water, MSM, magnesium chloride, lemon oil, lavender oil, and organic coconut oil.

Warrior Mist contains no harsh chemicals or synthetic preservatives (like parabens, dimethicone, or phenoxyethanol). What else would you expect from a formulator like Dr. Hank Liers or a company like Health Products Distributors?

For anyone who cares about NOT putting toxic chemicals on their skin, Warrior Mist is a high-purity formula worthy of consideration. It is a pure, simple, and effective formula.

Warrior Mist comes in a spray bottle made of glass, not plastic. Shake it, then spray it. Gently massage the area of application to assist absorption. That’s all there is to it.

WARRIOR MIST APPLICATIONS FOR PAIN

Warrior Mist is effective for many applications, including pain relief for joints (wrists, elbows, knees, ankles), bruises and scratches, as well as insect bites and skin irritations. I occasionally I spray it directly into my mouth for throat relief, especially in winter or during allergy season (although technically it is not for internal use).

AIKIDO

I practice aikido, which can stress joints, especially wrists. Most aikido techniques involve grips that can become throws. There are also strikes, counterstrikes, blocks, falls, rolls, wrist breaks (escapes), and other movements.

Aikido is safe when practiced carefully. Yet, many techniques can lead to bumps, bruises, strains, sprains, and soreness. Warrior Mist helps me (and others) a lot. In fact, I donated a bottle of Warrior Mist to the dojo, so it’s there for anyone who needs it.

I am not sure what I would do for routine aches and pains without Warrior Mist. Sometimes just having relief after an aikido workout makes a big difference in my day.

My eight-year-old son also practices aikido in the same dojo. I feel confident using Warrior Mist on him because it is a safe, natural product that works.

I also practice yoga. Yoga rarely results in the types of minor injuries I experience from aikido. Yet, for times when I overstretch a muscle or overdo a pose, I reach for Warrior Mist for rapid, effective pain relief.

HIKING

I enjoy hiking. We live on the edge of a desert wilderness north of Tucson, Arizona. There are cactus, thick brush, thorny bushes, and biting insects like ants and scorpions. Many hikes involve at least a few thorns, scrapes, or mild soreness. Warrior Mist helps with these.

I have used Warrior Mist for bee and scorpion stings, ant bites, scrapes, cuts, small puncture wounds (e.g., from cactus spines), as well as skin irritations of various kinds.

In fact, there are few types of pain I have found Warrior Mist doesn’t mitigate. I use it for shoulder pain, neck pain, and lower back pain when it occurs. I notice the sooner I get Warrior Mist on the affected area, the faster I experience relief.

I don’t personally suffer from headaches, but friends who do tell me Warrior Mist helps them a lot. One of the ingredients is magnesium chloride, which is known to help ease headaches, including migraine headaches. Gently rub Warrior Mist around temples, forehead, or base of the neck.

Pain relief is not always immediate when using Warrior Mist. Yet, I know from experience how much it helps. The ingredients it contains support healing, too. Be patient, give it time, and allow it to work. That is exactly what I do sometimes.

AROUND HOUSE, YARD, AND GARDEN

Warrior Mist is ideal to keep in the house for everyday bumps and bruises like stubbed toes, bruised shins, or skinned knees. We find it useful after yardwork or gardening. You can spray it directly on an area, or else spray it into your hand first (after shaking the bottle), and then rub it into an affected area.

I know of two people who use Warrior Mist for pain in the tailbone (coccyx), the final segment of the vertebral column. Tailbone pain for them was originally caused by falling. One person fell from a horse and the other off a skateboard. While these injuries are structural, Warrior Mist provides significant relief. The reduction in pain helps daily function and facilitates sleep.

WARRIOR MIST FOR PETS

Warrior Mist is safe for use with pets. In fact, it was originally formulated for pets with the help of a veterinarian. You can feel confident using Warrior Mist on pets, large and small. It is ideal for use on dogs, cats, horses, and farm animals. Many veterinarians use Warrior Mist in their clinics for effective pain relief.

If you are a veterinarian, consider using Warrior Mist for your pet patients.

PROFESSIONAL USES

My wife Stefanie is a practicing acupuncturist. She uses and recommends Warrior Mist for her clients.

She frequently uses Warrior Mist in her practice for knee pain, shoulder pain, and back pain. What she often does is mix about five sprays (pumps) of Warrior Mist with about ten sprays of Magnesium Oil along with a dime-sized amount of carrier oil (like organic jojoba oil or coconut oil) in her palm.

She mixes the liquids in her palm (for amounts up to one tablespoon), but it can be mixed and stored a small container. For greater amounts, the ratios remain the same – about 2:1 Magnesium Oil to Warrior Mist – with correspondingly higher amounts of carrier oil. This is an excellent mixture because it combines the benefits of Warrior Mist and Magnesium Oil.

There is a slight chemical reaction that occurs when Warrior Mist mixes with Magnesium Oil. It is actually a warming effect. Stefanie likes it because the mixture is then applied warm, which relaxes muscles and opens pores for better absorption. No “warm up” is necessary and clients seem to appreciate the mixture’s warmth.

The mixture (of Warrior Mist, Magnesium Oil, and carrier oil) may be applied directly on affected areas with high rates of success. Clients themselves can obtain Warrior Mist and Magnesium Oil to make this mixture at home. Using a carrier oil is helpful, but not required because Warrior Mist contains organic coconut and olive oils.

Warrior Mist Magnesium Oil effective pain relief

Warrior Mist works well mixed with Ancient Minerals magnesium oil.

Stefanie also finds Warrior Mist useful for clients suffering from headaches. In addition, she will apply straight Warrior Mist to the throat, lymph nodes, or upper chest area for clients dealing with respiratory issues. Indeed, she applies it to these areas on herself when she feels she may be fighting or coming down with something.

Use Warrior Mist on clean, dry, lotion-free skin. The DMSO in the formula acts as a solvent carrying substances on skin into the body. This allows natural ingredients in the formula to penetrate into painful areas. Wash hands and the application area (or wipe with a damp cloth) before treatment. Avoid using carrier oils with toxic ingredients (like synthetic preservatives) that could be pulled into the body.

Stefanie tells her clients not to put anything on their skin that they would not eat. That is, use only natural oils and products containing ingredients that are natural and organic. A useful resource to determine what products are most natural is the Skin Deep Database on the Environmental Working Group website (www.ewg.org).

If you are a health care professional who deals with clients requiring pain relief, please contact HPDI to request a sample bottle of Warrior Mist. See how well this effective pain relief formula works for your clients.

Wash hands, shake bottle, then spray on clean, dry skin. Massage area to assist absorption.

WARRIOR MIST FOR ATHLETES AND SPORTS

One group of people who love Warrior Mist is athletes, especially runners, triathletes, and other endurance athletes. Warrior Mist is useful for nearly all sports, including contact sports.

HPDI’s sponsored athlete, pro cyclist Irena Ossola, uses Warrior Mist regularly, especially during races and high-intensity training. She incorporates it into the sports massage she receives with reportedly good effects. She also states that it helps her with recovery.

Irena occasionally crashes her bicycle. This remains a hazard in her sport, she says. However, Warrior Mist has done much to help her joints, road rash and other abrasions, sore muscles, and to speed her recovery.

For purposes of athletes, the magnesium chloride in Warrior Mist can help support muscle health and recovery, and provide effective pain relief.

WARRIOR MIST SUMMARY

Dr. Hank Liers designed Warrior Mist as a natural formula containing ingredients known for providing effective pain relief. Given its wide applicability, topical application, natural ingredients, and proven history of use, Warrior Mist is ideal for personal use by consumers and in clinical settings for clients who require effective pain relief.

Warrior Mist is one of the most natural, effective pain relief products available to heath care professionals and consumers alike.

Warrior Mist comes in a 30 ml (1 oz) spray bottle which provides hundreds of applications. A single bottle typically lasts about two months.

Directions: Shake bottle before applying. Wash hands before and after use. Apply in a thin layer to a clean, dry, and lotion-free area needing support. Shave thick hair that may prevent absorption by the skin. Gently massage the area of application to assist absorption. Re-apply as needed 3–4 times daily. (Contains DMSO, a known solvent.)

BEYOND WARRIOR MIST: WARRIOR SLEEP & WARRIOR ENERGY

Warrior Mist is one of three Warrior Health products offered by Health Products Distributors. Dr. Hank Liers formulated these Warrior products, all of which are topicals requiring ultra-low doses (ULD) by design: Warrior Mist, Warrior Sleep, and Warrior Energy.

Warrior Mist Sleep Roll-On Energy effective pain relief

Warrior Mist, Warrior Sleep, and Warrior Roll-On Energy are topical formulas.

Warrior Sleep (9 ml) is an effective, natural sleep and relaxation formula having no drug-like side effects (compared to conventional sleep aids). Like Warrior Mist, you apply Warrior Sleep directly to skin (transdermal application) for rapid absorption. Warrior Sleep incorporates four natural ingredients for sleep: lavender oil, roman chamomile, magnesium, and melatonin. It uses DMSO and natural oils to carry these rest promoters into the body. Warrior Sleep contains: DMSO (99.999% pure), olive oil, distilled water, MSM, magnesium oil, lavender oil, lecithin, roman chamomile oil, coconut oil, and melatonin.

Warrior Sleep

Warrior Sleep is an effective topical relaxation and sleep formula.

Warrior Roll-On Energy (9 ml) is a unique topical roll-on energy product. It is formulated to provide five hours of mental and physical enhancement. One bottle will last 30 days when used twice daily. Warrior Roll-On Energy contains: DMSO (99.999% pure), organic aloe vera gel (inner fillet), distilled water, organic extra virgin olive oil, peppermint oil, magnesium chloride with trace ocean minerals, MSM, organic coconut oil, caffeine (80% from green tea), soy lecithin (high phosphatide and 98% oil free), glutathione (reduced), Vitamin B6 (from pyridoxal-5’-phosphate), Vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin), and Folinic Acid (from calcium folinate).

Warrior_Roll-On_Energy Warrior Sleep

Warrior Sleep and Warrior Roll-On Energy contain built-in roll-on applicators.

I use all three Warrior products depending on daily needs. Warrior Sleep is an effective sleep aid, but is also effective for relaxation or applied before bedtime to prepare for sleep. I apply to the neck base, upper throat, and temples. We have noticed it nourishes and smooths facial skin. This is due to its synergistic blend of ingredients, including melatonin, MSM, and organic carriers oils.

Warrior Roll-On Energy is uniquely energizing. It differs dramatically from most energy products, or coffee, tea, or chocolate. The formula utilizes ultra-low dose (ULD) technology to carry energizing ingredients (including caffeine from green tea) rapidly into the body. Yet, unlike caffeinated drinks, users typically experience no let down or rapid drop in energy after using it. Warrior Roll-On Energy provides non-jarring, sustained energy during the day (up to six hours).

Health Care Professionals: Please contact HPDI (1-800-228-4265) to request sample(s) of Warrior Mist, Warrior Sleep, Warrior Roll-On Energy, or other products in which you are interested.

Power Juice & Super Smoothie of Pro Cyclist Irena Ossola

Irena Ossola pro cyclist juice cleanseJust the words “juice cleanse” can bring thoughts of hunger, struggle, and lack of energy. Yet, in my experience I have found juice cleansing simplifies life and gives a boost to my days.

I make enough juice each day and drink as much as I want or need. I notice some tired moments where the lack of protein affects my energy, but I also attribute that to my training.

As a professional athlete, I’ve learned a juice cleanse is all about timing. Outside of high-volume training, the juice cleanse is more just a mater of sticking to it. But during the season I recently learned my body fatigues more easily and lacks long-term energy for endurance during training.

Irena Ossola juice cleansing superfoods

Juice cleansing is not easy, but nicely supports my training, racing, and recovery.

This past week I have gone through a pretty tough round of cleansing. I did five days total in which three days were juice only.

I have done cleanses before and even for long amounts of time, but this was by far the most difficult I have ever done. Not because of juice quantity, or hunger, but because of training and energy.

The last time I did a cleanse was before my wrist surgery last fall. I was still training, but not as heavily or intense as right now since the racing season is underway. So when I recently had two hard days of four-hour rides/workouts, my body felt the effects of having no solid substance.

I admit I did “cheat” a little and eat grapefruits alongside the juice. It helped fill my stomach and give me a little more fiber and sugars for my workouts.

Other than raw grapefruit, I followed my cleanse routine: lemonade first thing in the morning, followed by herbal tea, and then fresh juice during the day. As usual, I added Rejuvenate! superfoods to my juices to help with energy, recovery, and needed vitamins.

Irena Ossola juice cleansing superfoods

Juice with superfoods is a nutritious combination.

From my past experience it takes about three days for my body to adjust to the diet. Considering my current training and focus on preparing for races, I don’t think it would be beneficial for me to do more than three days cleansing, especially on juice alone.

The purpose of this cleanse was to replenish my body with hydration and nutrients, whereas solid food is not as efficient. So despite some reduced energy and power, my body feels replenished and recharged. This makes it worthwhile!

As a professional athlete, it is important to tune into how my body feels and what it needs. I was not able to commit to a long cleanse, but as with so many things, every bit helps.

If you are thinking about doing a cleanse, this short 3–5 day cleanse could be a good stepping stone to see how your body reacts. One key component that I include with my juice is Rejuvenate! superfoods. This gives me the vitamins my body needs to recover after hard workouts, so that I can get back out and train hard again the next day.

CLEANSING “POWER JUICE” RECIPE

I use one-quart glass bottles that I reuse from store bought juice (lemon from my cleanse). I fill it about halfway with juice to leave room for supplements and shaking.

SUPER REJUVENATE! SMOOTHIE RECIPE

This is the recipe for the smoothie I drink after my workouts and even just during the day when I am not training. It helps fuel me and gives me energy to last the whole day. It’s packed with vitamins and healthy ingredients. The taste is a bit interesting. I love the mix of lime, ginger, and chocolate that is like no other smoothie I’ve ever tasted.

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.

Every Rejuvenate! superfood is unique, but all provide dietary nucleic acids for optimal health.

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).
