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!

REJUVENATE! SUPEROOD INGREDIENTS – CHLORELLA

Fred Liers PhD chlorellaRejuvenate!™ superfoods are the world’s first superfoods formulated specifically to provide therapeutic levels of dietary nucleic acids (RNA, DNA, nucleosides, and nucleotides). HPDI currently offers three versions: Rejuvenate! Original, Rejuvenate! PLUS, and Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs.

All three Rejuvenate! formulas provide at least 340 mg of dietary nucleic acids per serving. The pioneer nucleic acid researcher, Dr. Benjamin S. Frank studied the beneficial effects of nucleic acids on humans and animals during the 1960s and 70s.

Dr. Frank concluded that dietary nucleic acids are essential nutrients for health. He advised consuming a range of 300–1,500 mg daily. However, he noted that healthy benefits are apparent at levels as low as 75 mg.

Hank Liers, PhD formulated the Rejuvenate! line of superfoods to leverage the powers of dietary nucleic acids for health. These superfood powders are nutrient dense, tasty, easy to consume, portable, and powerfully healthful.

While all Rejuvenate formulas contain dietary nucleic acids from a variety of sources, Rejuvenate! Original and Rejuvenate! PLUS contain chlorella, known to contain the highest levels of nucleic acids among all foods.

Chlorella also provides many benefits beyond nucleic acids. In this article, I will explore chlorella as an important ingredient in Rejuvenate! superfoods, as well as a superfood in its own right.

Chlorella

Chlorella provides more dietary nucleic acids than any other green superfood ingredient.

CHLORELLA

Chlorella is a single-celled, fresh-water aquatic plant, named so after the Greek word chloros meaning “green”— because it contains large amounts of the green phytonutrient chlorophyll. Millions of people take chlorella every day (many in East Asia) because it is a highly nutritious superfood.

Researchers who’ve studied chlorella extensively say it’s nature’s “perfect food.” In fact, NASA studied it as a food for astronauts. Chlorella provides a broad spectrum of nutrients, including protein, essential fats, fiber, chlorphyll, vitamins, and minerals, including trace minerals.

Chlorella also provides the highest levels of dietary nucleic acids among all foods. Dietary nucleic acids (e.g., RNA) are now recognized as powerful, natural substances that provide supernutrition, rejuvenate, heal, and help create optimal health.

REJUVENATE WITH CHLORELLA

Chlorella can help you look and feel younger. Studies confirm what people taking chlorella have long experienced—the anti-aging effects of dietary nucleic acids on skin, eyes, hair, hands, and other visible parts of the body. Skin typically becomes smoother, tighter, and clearer. Deep lines, wrinkles, and “crow’s feet” are often reduced.

Even acne and foot calluses can clear up as skin becomes softer and healthier. Hair color may return and its texture may become richer and thicker. These changes are more than skin deep. They reflect inner changes created by the nutritional powers of dietary nucleic acids for optimal health.

According to pioneer nucleic-acid researcher Dr. Benjamin S. Frank in Dr. Frank’s No-Aging Diet: Eat and Grow Younger (34), individuals can look and feel five, ten, or even fifteen years younger. That is the little-known power of dietary nucleic acids for health.

Dr. Frank saw those results with his patients consuming dietary nucleic acids (from fish and yeast sources). The anti-aging effects were so evident, he wrote: “It shows on your face.” He saw it happen with nearly all his patients. Dr. Frank emphasizes that such changes in appearance aren’t just “skin-deep” and in fact aren’t even “cosmetic” at all (from a medical standpoint), but stem from deep-down improvements in health (6).

After years of experience with thousands of patients, Dr. Frank concluded that dietary nucleic acids could “revolutionize the appearance of most Americans, because most…are in poor health…aging faster than necessary” (Dr. Frank’s No-Aging Diet, 34). Dr. Frank cared about his patients and knew dietary nucleic acids could help them be healthier.

What Dr. Frank did not know about was chlorella, which is at least 10 times higher in dietary nucleic acids than nutritional yeast or seafoods. If he had known about chlorella, he would have advocated for its consumption to realize the benefits of its dietary nucleic acid content.

Because chlorella is a rich source of nucleic acids, you can expect the type of results reported by Dr. Frank regarding his patients. The benefits of chlorella add up over time—helping people looking and feeling younger—far longer than experienced by those consuming typical (SAD) diets.

In my own experience, I saw myself “growing younger” after consuming chlorella for about three weeks. My rejuvenation hasn’t stopped—I look and feel youthful for my age, and it’s nice having plenty of energy. I’m compelled to share my knowledge about chlorella so other people can benefit from its dietary nucleic acids and other healthy nutrients.

There is a powerful connection between our inner health and outer appearance. When we meet our body’s needs for nutrition and for the energy to carry out its tasks, we can experience glowing health. The dietary nucleic acids in chlorella can help everyone look and feel their very best.

CHLORELLA BENEFITS

• Heart Health. Chlorella’s nucleic acids help rejuvenate your entire body, including your heart. Chlorella also contains essential fatty acids (i.e., “good” fats), including omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid). These fatty acids combine with chlorella’s proven ability to lower cholesterol, as well as the rejuvenating and energizing effects of nucleic acids to support excellent cardiovascular health.

In addition, the strengthening and anti-inflammatory actions of polysaccharides, and chlorella’s ability to remove toxic heavy metals play significant roles in reducing the stiffness ness of vessel walls, thereby improving their resiliency and elasticity.

• Breathe Easier. Nucleic acids vastly improve cellular oxygenation and oxygen utilization in the body—enabling far more efficient use of oxygen, including the ability to function better with less. This is a truly remarkable benefit to anyone who wants improved breathing capacity, living in polluted environments or at high altitudes, and for aerobic exercise of any kind.

Studies show nucleic acids dramatically boost exercise performance via increased breathing capacity, greater stamina, and ability to perform physical tasks faster and longer.

Individuals with sufficient dietary nucleic acid intake are less “winded” while walking, running, hiking, swimming, climbing, kayaking, playing tennis, yoga, etc. Even people already in great shape will usually see noticeable differences. For example, gaining greater endurance and reserve capacity. The ability to go farther with less “huffing” or “puffing.”

• Mental Sharpness. The nucleic acids in chlorella greatly improve oxygen utilization, which can greatly improves your mental performance. The capacity of chlorella’s cell wall to help the body eliminate toxic metals (lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium) also plays a role in increasing mental acuity.

• Blood Sugar Stabilization. Chlorella helps stabilize blood sugar levels by supporting and balancing the liver and pancreas. When these organs do their jobs effectively, blood sugar levels naturally become better balanced. In addition, chlorella can reduce cravings for carbohydrates and sweets.

• Liver Support. Chlorella rejuvenates and cleanses the liver (and other detoxification organs). Nucleic acids directly stimulate cellular repair in liver tissue while improved elimination functions reduce cholesterol and fats in the bloodstream. This helps the liver be more efficient and keep the body healthier.

• Intestinal Health. Supports growth of healthy intestinal flora (“friendly” bacteria) in the digestive tract, aids bowel elimination, and deodorizes.

•Alkalinizing Effects. Chlorella brings balance to body pH by creating alkaline conditions — counteracting the effects of acid-forming foods and substances. This helps create greater health.

• Feel Great. Chlorella’s benefits act synergistically. When all body systems repair and heal, they work better together. Health is more than the absence of disease. When all parts function optimally — in a natural, healthy way — the result is often feeling great due to good health.

Nature has blessed us with chlorella, a superfood with countless health benefits. That is why we include chlorella in Rejuvenate!™ superfoods.

chlorella drink

Consuming a daily green superfood drink with chlorella is a healthy habit.

FOODS ARE THE BEST MEDICINE

The ancient Greek philosopher Hippocrates famously exhorted, “Let food be your medicine.” Yet individuals and society don’t always embrace this truth.

Low levels of nutrition offered by the so-called “Standard American Diet” (SAD) are implicated in the rise of degenerative diseases and other conditions of poor health. Ironically, our age is a time of great food abundance and great malnutrition. A time when food quantity often exceeds food quality.

Facing significant declines of nutritional values in modern foods (due to processing, refining, toxic additives, soil degradation, agricultural chemicals, etc.), as well as the nutrient-depletion in our bodies related to factors like high-speed/high stress lifestyles, poor food choices, and lack of education about nutrition, why should a nutritious superfood like chlorella go overlooked?

Times are changing. People increasingly want nutrition facts about healing foods and super nutrition offered by whole foods like chlorella.

CHLORELLA – NATURE’S PERFECT FOOD?

Chlorella is often considered “nature’s perfect food” because there’s no single food like it. It offers a unique profile of beneficial nutrients, including:

  • Nucleic Acids, including RNA, DNA, and nucleic acid derivatives — a sort of “fountain of youth” providing energy for your cells.
  • Chlorella Growth Factor (GGF) — health-building nucleotide-peptide complex that boosts immunity and speeds healing.
  • Essential Fatty Acids (omega-3 and omega-6 EFAs) — an excellent source of heart-healthy omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid.
  • Richest Source of Chlorophyll of any plant, 4%–7% or greater. 10 times more chlorophyll than alfalfa. Chlorophyll is an amazing healing phytonutrient that powerfully heals, purifies, cleanses, and detoxifies.
  • High-Quality Plant Protein (62% or more) — vegetable protein that’s easy to digest and assimilate.
  • Antioxidants, Enzymes, and Phytonutrients, including naturally occurring beta-carotene and lutein.
  • Vitamins, including vitamins A, C, D, E, and K1; all major B vitamins, and vitamin B12.
  • Minerals and Trace Elements, including iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, iodine, zinc, manganese, and others.
  • Polysaccharides — protecting your vascular system, strengthening connective tissues, and building immunity (by stimulating interferon production).
  • Fiber (11% insoluble) — promoting heart health, detoxification, easier elimination, and appetite control.

These are some of the nutrients chlorella provides. Let me tell you a little more about chlorella’s dietary nucleic acids because they are responsible for many of the benefits of chlorella.

NUTRITIONAL POWERS OF DIETARY NUCLEIC ACIDS

While chlorella contains many valuable nutrients, one group of nutrients stands out as exceptional: its high content of nucleic acids. In particular, RNA (ribonucleic acid) and DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid).

Nucleic acids are involved in many bodily processes, especially energy production and communication within cells (i.e., they enable cells to use energy effectively for greater health). In the cell nucleus, RNA carries out instructions coded in DNA—instructions containing information critical for cell structure and function—which are essential for the lives of our cells.

When our cells receive proper directions and energy to carry them out, they have the resources to help keep us youthful, or at least not age prematurely. Chlorella’s nucleic acids provide us basic materials for repairing and replacing our RNA and DNA, thereby giving us potentially greater energy, vitality, and longevity.

Our bodies naturally make nucleic acids. However, with increasing age we gradually lose our capacity for synthesizing them. This is where nucleic acids from foods can make a difference for health. As noted, pioneer RNA researcher Dr. Benjamin S. Frank discovered that dietary nucleic acids not only improve health, but also slow down and even reverse the aging process.

Many decades of research led Dr. Frank to conclude that nucleic acids are not only improve health, but they’re actually “essential nutrients.” In particular, he describes RNA as “the anti-aging factor.” His research laid the foundation for understanding the effects of all high-nucleic acid foods, including chlorella.

In his books, Dr. Frank predicts nucleic acids will be the “medicine” of the future, but says that everyone can benefit right now — by eating high-nucleic acid foods. In fact, his best-seller Dr. Frank’s No-Aging Diet is a guide for helping people learn about consuming foods high in nucleic acids for optimal health. Yet, he’s hardly alone in his enthusiasm for nucleic acids from foods.

Dr. Frank has plenty of company in his praise for dietary nucleic acids. In a classic, groundbreaking book titled Chlorella, Jewel of the Far East, natural healer Dr. Bernard Jensen focuses on the health benefits of chlorella and its nucleic acids.

Dr. Jensen states, “Eating foods high in nucleic acids provide the material for the repair and production of human nucleic acids…the breakdown of DNA and RNA in the cells [is]…one of the main factors in aging and in degenerative diseases” (83).

He spent his life traveling the world searching for secrets of health and longevity. He was impressed by the “mind blowing” effects of dietary nucleic acids on human health, especially the effects of chlorella.

Dr. Jensen marveled at chlorella’s nutritional characteristics. He understood then that it would take time to study and understand the mechanisms behind chlorella’s evident benefits. However, he was clear in stating that while science takes time unraveling chlorella’s mysteries, anyone can benefit from consuming it right now—without waiting for the day when modern science fully reveals how it makes us healthier.

He also states, “We know from studies, from experiments and the experiences of many people that chlorella protects the body and restores health, without undesirable side effects” (85).

Nutrition science already reveals the foods highest in nucleic acids. These foods include fish, organ meats, beans, brewer’s yeast, and most of all chlorella. Yet, foods and superfoods aren’t typically promoted for their high nucleic acid levels. Most doctors and nutritionists know little about the importance of dietary nucleic acids.

Yet, nothing prevents individuals from consuming high-nucleic acid foods right now, as Dr. Frank and Dr. Jensen advise.

MORE CHLORELLA BENEFITS

Chlorella’s nucleic acids help you become healthier. Studies prove the remarkable powers of nucleic acids to heal, rejuvenate, rebuild, restore, improve quality of life, and even prolong life.

Nucleic acids are known to increase energy levels and cellular oxygenation, boost physical stamina and lung power, and augment overall health and well being. They also smooth skin, reduce wrinkles, increase lean muscle mass, lower cholesterol, support cardiovascular health, aid metabolism, stabilize blood sugar, and even help regulate body temperature (for example, they can increase body warmth for greater comfort in cold climates).

CHLORELLA FOR CELLULAR ENERGY (ATP) PRODUCTION

One essential fact you need to know about chlorella’s nucleic acids is that they dramatically increase energy. Nucleic acids boost energy levels in the body by significantly increasing production of the “high-energy” molecule ATP (adenosine triphosphate), and thereby retard the aging process.

Our bodies use ATP in many ways. For example, cell repair, healing, metabolism, digestion, supporting the immune system, and other processes. This means chlorella is a total body healing food and a systemic healer that rejuvenates deeply from the cellular level on up, and from the inside out.

Our bodies know exactly how to use dietary nucleic acids to make energy to satisfy our needs. In this sense, RNA acts as a “smart” nutrient providing energy wherever we need it most, and thereby functions as an “adaptogen.” Precisely because dietary nucleic acids support metabolism and slow aging, many nutrition scientists consider chlorella among the top superfoods in the world.

CHLORELLA GROWTH FACTOR (CGF) FOR REJUVENATION

Chlorella offers more than an incredibly high nucleic acid content. The 5% nucleic-acid rich fraction of chlorella contains a substance known as “Chlorella Growth Factor” or CGF.

First isolated by Japanese scientists in the mid-1950s, Chlorella Growth Factor is a nucleotide-peptide complex containing nucleic acids and nucleic-acid derivatives, like amino acids, peptides, nucleotides, nucleosides, polysaccharides, beta-glucans, and other beneficial substances. Most importantly, it’s natural, safe, and demonstrates potent healing powers.

CGF is best known for having powerful growth stimulating properties. In fact, in Japan it’s used to boost growth in children with growth disorders.

CGF doesn’t boost growth in adults, but instead enhances immune system response, repairs nerve tissues (e.g., especially helpful for brain and nerve disorders), and works powerfully to speed healing. Also, the body uses this growth factor to produce energy in support of metabolic processes and to revitalize cellular functioning.

Because CGF is a concentrated source of nucleic acids (RNA and DNA), its constituents act synergistically to provide you with superb nutrition for optimal health.

CGF offers potent health benefits like immune support, rapid healing, regeneration, and rejuvenation. Thus, Chlorella Growth Factor is another reason why chlorella is one of most complete superfoods on the planet.

CHLOROPHYLL FOR HEALING

Chlorella’s energizing and healing powers are remarkable. Its nucleic acids and Chlorella Growth Factor support optimal health. Yet, chlorella also contains vast quantities of chlorophyll, the green phytonutrient found in all plants. As a superfood that gets its name from chlorophyll, chlorella’s chlorophyll content is extremely high—4% to 7%, or greater. That’s the highest chlorophyll content of any plant. Chlorophyll itself is a significant healing substance.

CHLOROPHYLL BENEFITS

Chlorophyll has many proven benefits: it cleanses, deodorizes, disinfects, detoxifies, alkalinizes your body, and speeds healing (internally and externally). It has been said, “If you’re green inside, you’re clean inside.” And due to chlorophyll’s structural similarity to human blood cells, consuming it builds a high blood count.

Here’s a partial list of chlorophyll’s benefits:

• Detoxifies, deodorizes, cleanses, and purifies. Chlorophyll is nature’s greatest purifier.

• Removes heavy metals from the body, including mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium, aluminum, and other toxic metals (see Mike Adams’s Superfoods for Optimum Health, www.chlorellafactor.com 10)

Due to industrialization, polluted water, dental amalgams, and consumption of predatory fish (high in mercury), it is estimated that most Americans have relatively high levels of toxic metals in their bodies. Chlorophyll helps reduce the burden of metals on the body.

• Removes pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dioxins, and industrial chemicals.

• Aids liver function—via purification and detoxification, and supports other elimination functions in the body! (see Mike Adam’s Superfoods for Optimum Health, www.chlorellafactor.com 10)

• Can reduce pain in certain instances (see Dr. Bernard Jensen’s The Healing Power of Chlorophyll, 105.)

• Builds a high blood count and  thereby can improve anemia due to chlorophyll’s structural similarity to human blood cells. (See Dr. Bernard Jensen’s The Healing Power of Chlorophyll, 105).

Chlorophyll is a powerful healer. People take everything from parsley extracts to wheatgrass juice to obtain its benefits. But chlorella contains far more chlorophyll than these sources and provides many other health-building elements–as discussed above—a winning combination for good health.

CHLORELLA AS CHAMPION HEALTH BUILDER

Few foods offer as many benefits for health as chlorella. Providing dietary nucleic acids, Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), chlorophyll, protein, vitamins, minerals, essential fats (omega-3 and omega-6), antioxidants, polysaccharides, phytonutrients, and fiber, chlorella is an ideal ingredient to include in superfood formulas. Thus, chlorella provides users with high levels dietary nucleic acids and many other healthful nutrients that work synergistically to support optimal health.

CHLORELLA AS MAJOR INGREDIENT IN REJUVENATE! SUPERFOODS

Hank Liers, PhD formulated Rejuvenate! superfoods specifically to provide high levels of dietary nucleic acids. Chlorella is one of several significant sources of the dietary nucleic acids in HPDI’s Rejuvenate! Original and Rejuvenate PLUS. Note: Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs contains no chlorella (or any greens), but still provides therapeutic levels of nucleic acids.

Chlorella is a champion ingredient among high-RNA ingredients. Individuals interested in optimal health should consider chlorella and superfoods high in chlorella as allies providing the highest levels of dietary nucleic acids and nutrients supporting their use in the body.

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.

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.

REJUVENATE! – THE ORIGINAL, HIGH-RNA SUPERFOOD

Fred Liers PhD Rejuvenate high-RNA superfood original greensLast fall, Dr. Hank wrote a short article about original Rejuvenate!™ superfood titled, “High-RNA Rejuvenate! Superfood.” In that article, he highlighted some of the history behind HPDI’s discovery of the health benefits of dietary nucleic acids. He also described the development of the first superfood formulated specifically to provide high levels of dietary nucleic acids (RNA, DNA, nucleotides, and nucleosides).

Since then, we have written several articles about dietary nucleic acids and our high-RNA Rejuvenate! superfoods, including Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs. Indeed, our most popular Rejuvenate! superfoods are the ones we developed after our original Rejuvenate! formula, which we often refer to as “Rejuvenate! original greens” as a testament to the high levels of greens (like chlorella) it provides.

HPDI’s bestselling superfoods are Rejuvenate! PLUS (our lighter, sweet greens formula) with greens at a less intense level and Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs with no greens (but still offering therapeutic levels of dietary RNA). We are pleased our customers love the two newest Rejuvenate! high-RNA formulas. Indeed, that is precisely the reason we developed them – for great taste – and to offer more choice by offering both a lighter green superfood and a berry superfood without any greens.

Given the choice of three unique Rejuvenate! superfoods, why choose Rejuvenate! (original greens)? What are its benefits? What advantages are afforded by this intensely green superfood compared with our lighter, sweeter green version and our delicious berry variant? I’ll attempt to answer these questions and offer insights into the unique benefits of our original high-RNA superfood formula.

rejuvenate original greens high-RNA superfood dietary nucleic acids hank liers PhD

Rejuvenate! (original greens) is formulated by Hank Liers, PhD.

WHAT MAKES “ORIGINAL” REJUVENATE! DIFFERENT?

Rejuvenate! original sells well and remains quite popular. But its demographic is different. People who love original Rejuvenate! tend to be our most health conscious customers. They might be called “health foodies.” We love these folks. Some might even call them “health nuts” which I take to describe them in the best sense of the term. In fact, I count myself among them. Such persons don’t mind (or actually crave) intense greens. They create ways to make greens pleasingly palatable by mixing original Rejuvenate! into smoothies, blender drinks, and concoctions like “Rejuvenate! Lemonade.”

Rejuvenate! original might strike some individuals’ taste buds as “hard core” nutrition best suited for the “granola crunchy” or “wheatgrass” crowd. Or perhaps ideal for those high-minded about vegetable juices, or no-nonsense about having “therapeutic” nutrients in their superfoods. A mindset favoring high-purity, high-density, high-potency and/or high-RNA in superfoods. All this may be true.

What gets lost in any attempt to put Rejuvenate! original into “health food” cubbyhole is the true identity of a powerful healing elixir that can transform health in ways undreamed by the average superfoods aficionado. That in fact, could transform not only the health, but also the very being of anyone who regularly uses it. Not just so-called power users or superfood “snobs,” but ANYONE.

However, you must first understand it. A deeper grasp of the potential life-changing aspects of this über-potent, high-RNA superfood may be your game changer. Or maybe that’s what gets you past your jilted tastebuds to the next level of nutritional adventuresome-ness. Or has you getting creative in the kitchen making smoothies the way you like them.

Some people, of course, don’t want to “think different” or try new things, especially dark green superfoods like Rejuvenate!™. It’s just not in their genes, they say. One problem with such logic is that if you’re already using Rejuvenate! superfoods (like PLUS or Berries & Herbs), then already you’re thinking different. So you may as well give original Rejuvenate! a try.

But seriously. If you are truly interested in optimal health and haven’t yet come to acquire an appreciation for Rejuvenate! the original, best-ever, high-RNA superfood, then read on.

BENEFITS UNIQUE TO REJUVENATE!™ ORIGINAL HIGH-RNA SUPERFOOD

Some benefits up front. There are many elements unique to our original high-RNA superfood formula, and I will talk about them throughout this article. For now, a few important benefits compared to other Rejuvenate! superfoods include 1) greater amounts of dietary nucleic acids per unit weight (i.e., greater nucleic acid density), 2) smaller serving size (which relates to greater RNA density), 3) lower cost per serving, 4) more servings per container (actually 42!!), and 5) overall lower cost per serving (given the fact that all Rejuvenate! formulas provide approximately the same amount of dietary RNA per serving). That’s just for starters.

If these benefits don’t shiver your timbers, then read on. Many customers favor original Rejuvenate!™ for back-to-basics economic value, especially given that Rejuvenate! superfoods are sometimes considered high-end items (even if we don’t routinely think of them that way because they are foundational supplements).

In all fairness, Rejuvenate! original does NOT provide a built-in multivitamin or any added protein. Nor does it contain some of the fancier (if you will) vegetable-based antioxidant formulas and sub-formula ingredients that characterize (or even define) Rejuvenate! PLUS and especially Berries & Herbs with its truly one-of-a-kind cell-protective sub-formula offering both major cell protection and significant antioxidant power (i.e., high ORAC value).

Truly, HPDI formulated every Rejuvenate! high-RNA superfood to provide its own distinct benefits. That is, each formula has its own character and best uses. You can learn more about these differences by consulting our Rejuvenate! Product Comparison.

All Rejuvenate! superfoods provide therapeutic levels of dietary nucleic acids (i.e., that’s what makes them high-RNA formulas) and various levels of protein (from different sources like rice or chlorella). But the fundamental uniqueness of each formula makes each one quite distinct from the others. Of course, I will focus here on what makes Rejuvenate! original so special.

REDISCOVERING AN ORIGINAL REJUVENATE! WRITEUP

I recently came across a writeup about Rejuvenate!™ I posted on the HPDI website when we launched original Rejuvenate! superfood (about 2007). After re-reading it, I recall how excited we were to launch our original formula. Indeed, it was our first superfood product based on our new understanding of how high-RNA superfoods build, support, and maintain optimal health.

It was a heady time!! Since then we’ve launched those two other major Rejuvenate! superfoods, and witnessed the growth of the entire Rejuvenate! line. Since then, I have written extensively on the benefits of dietary nucleic acids, high-RNA foods and superfoods, and all Rejuvenate! superfoods themselves.

What strikes me about my original writeup was how much information it contained that I have not conveyed in the same in more recent posts. Also, it was a promotional writeup, which wasn’t exactly blog material. But I’m going present it here in hopes it sheds light on Rejuvenate! original greens, and on the entire Rejuvenate! line of high-RNA superfoods as they have since developed from the original formula.

I have revised the writeup and brought it up-to-date. It’s an edited version, but I’ve left it mostly as it was always. That is, informative, fact-based, and decidedly oriented toward presenting the many benefits of original Rejuvenate!™, the first high-RNA superfood formulated primarily for the purpose of providing dietary nucleic acids for optimal health, healing, recovery, performance, and overall well-being. My writeup also presents the benefits of consuming dietary nucleic acids in general, which means it’s educational in a broader sense. I hope you enjoy reading it!!

DISCOVER THE ORIGINAL, HIGH-RNA SUPERFOOD!

NUTRITIOUS & DELICIOUS SUPERFOOD FORMULA!
LEVERAGES DIETARY NUCLEIC ACIDS FOR HEALTH!!

 A NUTRITION REVOLUTION IS HERE.

Legend has it that in 1531, the Spanish explorer Ponce de León searched the New World for the “fountain of youth.” Although he never found the mythical spring, such legends abound throughout history. Descriptions of plants or elixirs restoring youth and health trace back at least 4,000 years to the ancient Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh. The hero-king Gilgamesh retrieves the plant of everlasting life from the bottom of the sea. In the West, references to the water of life occur in 3rd-century romances celebrating the exploits of Alexander the Great. They all should’ve tried Rejuvenate!™.

REJUVENATE!™ HARNESSES NUCLEIC ACIDS FOR HEALING

While historical references and legends describing plants, foods, or elixirs that restore youth may seem outlandish, does any nutrient exist that could inspire such legends?

Rejuvenate high-RNA Superfood dietary nucleic acids fred liers

Rejuvenate!™ is the original high-RNA superfood.

HIGH-RNA, NUCLEIC ACID NUTRITION

The dietary nucleic acids in high-RNA original Rejuvenate! are natural (i.e., not synthetic or genetically engineered) and are naturally found in foods. Foods containing high levels of what are known to scientists as “purines” usually also contain high levels of nucleic acids. These foods include fish, organ meats (like liver), and certain vegetables (such as beans).

High-RNA foods include superfoods such as chlorella, spirulina, and nutritional yeast. Rejuvenate!™ is formulated to supplement a nutritious diet with high-quality nucleic acids from a variety of food sources, as well as provide nutrients supporting the body’s uptake, assimilation, and use of nucleic acids.

Studies prove the rejuvenating and restorative effects of dietary nucleic acids. Dr. Benjamin S. Frank’s bestselling Dr. Frank’s No-Aging Diet: Eat and Grow Younger (1976) documented his experience with thousands of patients, who experienced rejuvenated appearance (including smoother skin, brighter eyes), greater strength, increased lung power (and improved breathing), more endurance, and greater ability to tolerate temperature extremes (e.g., resistance to cold).

In Nucleic Acid Nutrition and Therapy (1977), Dr. Frank was the first scientist to propose that exogenous nucleic acids (i.e., nucleic acids provided through diet or nutritional supplements) are actually “essential nutrients” similar to vitamins and minerals. He based this proposal on his long-term observations that very great health benefits were obtained by patients consuming nucleic acids at higher levels than could readily be synthesized in the human body.

Dr. Frank found the benefits patients obtained at higher levels far exceeded the benefits he witnessed in controls or in individuals consuming typical “modern” diets. He observed that modern diets lack nucleic acids due to processing, increased intake of  “fast foods,” and declining consumption of traditional food sources of nucleic acids like organ meats and certain vegetables.

Dr. Frank based his dietary recommendations on fish consumption (especially sardines) which contain the highest levels of nucleic acids among animal foods, and to a lesser extent on beans and certain vegetables. In contrast, Dr. Bernard Jensen built upon Dr. Frank’s work on dietary nucleic acids by expanding our understanding of the single-cell aquatic plant chlorella, which contains the highest levels of nucleic acids among all foods.

Dr. Jensen’s Chlorella: Gem of the Orient (1987) firmly establishes the critical role of nucleic acids in nutrition, and represents his best effort to educate people regarding the primary role nucleic acids play in health, healing, rejuvenation, and longevity. Dr. Jensen investigated the dietary role of chlorella in Eastern cultures including Japan and China, where millions of individuals consume chlorella daily because it is revered as a vitalizing, healing superfood.

WHAT ARE NUCLEIC ACIDS?

INTRODUCING NUCLEIC ACIDS, NUCLEOTIDES, AND NUCLEOSIDES

Nucleic acids are complex, high-molecular-weight, biochemical macromolecules composed of nucleotide chains conveying genetic information. They are involved in many bodily processes, especially energy production and communication within cells (i.e., they enable cells to use energy effectively for greater health). In the cell nucleus, RNA carries out instructions coded in DNA—instructions containing information critical for cell structure and function—which are essential for the very lives of our cells, and thereby for our lives.

When cells receive proper directions and energy to carry them out, they keep us youthful. They truly are today’s “fountain of youth.” Dietary or “exogenous” nucleic acids enable you to increase nucleic acid intake to levels that provide therapeutic benefits. Dr. Frank proposed that nucleic acids are essential nutrients. If this is the case, then receiving and maintaining adequate levels of nucleic acids is very important for the body.

Biochemically, nucleic acids are constructed of three of more nucleotides, which are monomers consisting of three components: a heterocyclic base (either a purine or a pyrimidine), a pentose (i.e., five-carbon) sugar (either ribose or deoxyribose), and a phosphate group.

Nucleotides are the structural units of DNA and RNA, as well as the cofactors coenzyme A (CoA), flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD), flavin mononucleotide (FMN), nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP+). Many of these cofactors are used in glycolosis for generating ATP (as part of anaerobic respiration). They are also used in the Krebs cycle (or citric acid cycle), which in aerobic organisms (including humans) is part of a metabolic pathway involved in the conversion of nutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, and fats) into energy (ATP) through a process of cellular respiration. Other coenzymes are involved in the pentose phosphate pathway (HMP shunt) and required for the biosynthesis 5-carbon sugars (e.g., d-ribose) and nucleic acids.

Nucleosides are glycosylamines created by the attachment of a nucleobase to a ribose or deoxyribose ring. Some nucleotides are cytidine, uridine, adenosine, guanosine, thymidine, and inosine. Nucleosides may be phosphorylated by certain kinases within cells, producing nucleotides (i.e., the molecular building blocks of DNA and RNA, as described above). Enzymes known as nucleotidases break down nucleotides into nucleosides (and phosphate).

High-RNA Rejuvenate!™ incorporates the science behind nucleic acids and puts them to work for you. The healing and rejuvenating capabilities of nucleic acids largely derive from the essential role they play in the production of energy in the body, and other critical functions. When you obtain enough of the right kinds of nucleic acids, your body produces the energy required for its optimal function. Dr. Hank Liers specifically formulated high-RNA Rejuvenate!™ superfood to give you those nucleic acids, so you can function at your best.

HIGH-RNA SUPERFOODS ARE THE FUTURE OF NUTRITION

Nucleic acids are involved in many bodily functions, including energy production and communication within cells (i.e., they enable cells to use energy effectively for greater health). In the cell nucleus, RNA carries out instructions coded in DNA—instructions containing information critical for cell structure and function—which are essential for the very lives of our cells, and thereby for our lives. When our cells receive proper directions and energy to carry them out, they keep us youthful. They truly are the body’s own “fountain of youth.” Rejuvenate!™ is designed to build upon current knowledge regarding nucleic acids in order to help support the body’s efforts in rebuilding, restoring, and revitalizing itself.

Many traditional foods contain nucleic acids, and dietary and other exogenous nucleic acids (e.g., RNA extracts) have been used therapeutically for more than 30 years. Now the therapeutic use of dietary nucleic acids is here to stay. And Rejuvenate! original is the formula that best leverages dietary nucleic acids into an ultra-functional superfood.

Rejuvenate! is designed to provide high levels of nucleic acids, including RNA, DNA, nucleotides, and nucleosides. Modern diets are deficient in nucleic acids. While food sources of nucleic acids include certain fish, organ meats, beans, yeast, and various food algae, dietary nucleic acid intake has dramatically declined in recent years.

Declines in dietary nucleic acid consumption relates to various factors and practices related to industrial agriculture, modern food processing, as well as fast food diets and diets that may be more subtly deficient in nutrients. Rejuvenate! high-RNA superfood provides therapeutic amounts of nucleic acids and other nutrients that help address deficiencies, and give the body nutrients necessary for creating health and vitality.

BACKGROUND TO NUCLEIC ACID NUTRITION & THERAPY

Dr. Benjamin S. Frank’s Dr. Frank’s No-Aging Diet: Eat and Grow Younger (1976) was a bestseller that sold millions of copies. Dr. Frank’s book increased scientific and popular interest in fish as a rich source of dietary nucleic acids. Current popularity of fish and seafood consumption reflects increased awareness of nucleic acids as demonstrated in Dr. Frank’s books and research studies.

Following Dr. Frank’s research studies, Dr. Bernard Jensen helped thousands of his patients recover their health using nucleic acid therapy. In particular, Dr. Jensen dramatically raised awareness of the healing powers of nucleic acids through his publications, including Chlorella: Gem of the Orient (1987).

Dr. Frank and Dr. Jensen were ahead of their time in advancing practical applications of nucleic acid nutrition and therapy. While they did not stand alone in their efforts to promote nucleic acids for health and healing, no one has since publicized these benefits as effectively as they did. They were pioneers who helped establish the importance of nucleic acids. Their messages about nucleic acids must be shared, disseminated, and broadly applied to human nutrition.

The purveyors of high-RNA foods such as nutritional yeast (e.g., Red Star’s Vegetarian Support Formula) typically emphasize the presence of nutritional factors other than nucleic acids, such as the B vitamins (especially B12). For example, nutritional yeast contains approximately 6% RNA, which is relatively large amount. Certain high-RNA food products like Marmite (consumed extensively in England for a century) and the well-known Vegemite (popular in Australia) are marketed or promoted as rich in B vitamins, yet a great deal of their nutritional benefits derive from their nucleic acid content. (Note: B vitamins are valuable because they work powerfully with nucleic acids to make them more effective.)

MILESTONES IN NUCLEIC ACID NUTRITION AND THERAPY

• STANFORD RESEARCH INSTITUTE FOOD STUDY (1948)

• DISCOVERY OF CHLORELLA GROWTH FACTOR (c. 1950) 

• CRICK, WATSON, AND WILKINS WIN NOBEL PRIZE (1962)

• DR. BENJAMIN S. FRANK’S NO-AGING DIET (1976)

• DR. BERNARD JENSEN’S CHLORELLA: GEM OF THE ORIENT (1987)

• REJUVENATE!™ (original greens) (2007)

 • REJUVENATE!™ PLUS (2009) 

• REJUVENATE!™ BERRIES & HERBS (2010)

Certainly it is easier to consume foods like fish, beans, nutritional yeast, and other high-RNA foods, as well as superfoods like chlorella than to comprehend the complex biochemistry of nucleic acids. The good news is that while it is desirable to be as informed as possible about nutrition, you don’t need a degree in molecular biology to experience for yourself the health benefits of nucleic acids. As described above, these outstanding benefits include greater vitality, increased strength and endurance, easier breathing, a more youthful appearance (e.g., smoother skin, fewer wrinkles), rejuvenating effects, and healing and regeneration.

Beyond eating foods high in nucleic acids, consuming Rejuvenate!™ high-RNA superfood allows you to boost your intake of nucleic acids by providing many of these foods in a single, synergistic superfood. Rejuvenate!™ brings powerful nutrition to you in a convenient, tasty powder that mixes easily into water, blender drinks, juices, smoothies, bars, nut buttters, salads, soups, teas, etc. Your use of it is limited only by your imagination!!

APPLIED NUCLEIC ACID NUTRITION

Dr. Frank pioneered the use of dietary nucleic acids in the 1960s and 1970s. Other scientists and nutritionists have grasped the significance of his work for human health and well-being. In 1962, Drs. Watson, Crick, and Wilkins won the Nobel Prize in Medicine for discoveries regarding the molecular structure of nucleic acids (and its significance for information transfer in living material), including determining the structure of DNA. Since then science has greatly expanded our knowledge about DNA, RNA, and other nucleic acids.

Yet, it is notable that in our era of amazing advances in the biological sciences, little has been done to integrate advances in genetic science with what Dr. Frank and others have shown to be true regarding nucleic acids (e.g., RNA and DNA) and high-RNA foods for nutrition and therapy. We now have the knowledge to integrate the theoretical understanding of dietary nucleic acids with their practical applications based on their proven benefits to human health. Rejuvenate!™ high-RNA superfood is designed for this purpose. That is, to help you create optimal health!

DIETARY NUCLEIC ACIDS ARE FOR EVERYONE, INCLUDING YOU!!

Which brings us back to Gilgamesh and legendary sources of youthfulness. Unlike the time of Gilgamesh, Alexander the Great, or even Ponce de León, there exists today the knowledge of nucleic acids (RNA, DNA, nucleotides, nucleosides, etc.) as powerful means for supporting rejuvenation, healing, vitality, and health. The knowledge that nucleic acids can be considered modern-day fountains of youth. That you can benefit from them today, not tomorrow, and you can do it more easily (and naturally) than you ever imagined! You will be amazed by the results.

Despite recent advances in nutritional science, few people truly comprehend the power of dietary nucleic acids and high-RNA superfoods for optimal health, healing, and things like athletic performance. But you can benefit starting now!

HPD leverages its considerable scientific expertise and more than 20 years of supplement design experience to bring you the power of dietary nucleic acids in a one-of-a-kind, high-RNA superfood. Rejuvenate!™ original represents the most effective RNA supplement formula ever designed!!

FINAL CONSIDERATIONS

Since I wrote the original writeup (above), we’ve launched two additional Rejuvenate! superfoods, Rejuvenate! PLUS and Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs. Everyone has a favorite Rejuvenate! superfood, and some people enjoy mixing them. For example, Rejuvenate!™ (original greens) mixed with Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs is a winning combination we often hear about from customers (and use ourselves!!). Mixing original Rejuvenate! with other Rejuvenate superfoods is a viable option because original provides the most RNA for the least cost and the offers the highest levels of greens, which support optimal health.

All three Rejuvenate high-RNA superfoods dietary nucleic acids

Rejuvenate! superfoods offer high-RNA nutrition for optimal health.

Whatever your personal taste, consider keeping some Rejuvenate! original around to maximize your intake of dietary nucleic acids and greens. Mix and match with other Rejuvenate! superfoods and/or any other favorite ingredients. You’ll gain all the nutritional richness loaded into original Rejuvenate!™ and reap all the proven benefits from high levels of dietary nucleic acids.
