    ADVANCED GUT MICROBIOME SUPPORT

    INTRODUCING THE MICROBIOME

    For centuries, scientists have recognized a limited number of pathogenic bacteria for which antibiotic therapies have become the mainstream treatment. However, advanced DNA sequencing techniques coupled with data revealed from the Human Genome Project have made it possible to study a vast world of ‘germs’ – both pathogenic and beneficial – that dwarf our previous knowledge.

    While we inherit more than 22,000 genes from our parents, the bacteria that exist in and on our bodies contain at least eight million bacterial genes which amounts to 360 times more bacterial genes than human genes! The genetic material from bacteria that populate the human body is known as the human microbiome.

    Your microbiome is likely similar to that of your immediate family, as we naturally inherit our family’s microbiota. Through the course of our lives, we pick up other bacteria from food, water, and other parts of our environment. Scientists estimate we each carry 100 trillion bacteria in our intestinal tract alone!

    In this teeming landscape of bacteria, both you and the bacterial communities derive benefit. Many researchers use the term "mutually beneficial" when describing the evolving bacterial communities in our gut.

    THE BALANCE OF BACTERIA AND YOUR HEALTH

    In 2010, the Human Microbiome Project published an analysis of 178 genomes from bacteria that live in or on the human body. 10,000 different types of bacteria in the human body have been identified, including novel genes and proteins that serve functions in human health and disease. The vast numbers of bacteria discovered appear to provide benefit to the human body, not harm.

    Martin J. Blaser, chairman of the Department of Medicine and a professor of microbiology at the New York University (NYU) School of Medicine states: "Germs make us sick, but everyone focuses on the harm. It’s not that simple, because without most of these organisms we could never survive."

    As scientists map the human microbiome, they are beginning to understand the difference between normal and abnormal. Proper bacterial balance is vital to healthy immune function, providing appropriate protection against potential infections, playing a critical role in the digestion and absorption of food and nutrients, and even regulating mood. The interaction of multiple strains of bacteria is an essential element in health and wellbeing.

    The optimal balance of bacteria can be altered in many ways such as broad spectrum antibiotics that kill bacteria in the gut indiscriminately; prescription medications; disease-carrying bacteria, fungi, parasites, and yeasts; stress; lack of sleep; poor diet & lifestyle; geography and travel; and physical disconnection with nature.

    Researchers have shown that changes in gut bacteria even affect the brain and personality. For example, germ-free mice have been shown to be dramatically more anxious and hyperactive than their counterparts with a normal microbiome. These changes have also been associated with neurochemical changes in the mouse brain.

    Evidence supports the concept that microbiota balance can have a large impact on healthy metabolic processes. This delicate balance has a definite impact on nutrient acquisition and overall energy regulation.

    The impact of the gut microbiota is far reaching in the body. Continued investigation into the microbiome will yield powerful data, enabling the development of novel options to support healthy mood, metabolism, signaling molecules and much more.

    WHY SOIL-BASED ORGANISMS?

    Through diet and lifestyle, our earliest ancestors were routinely exposed to spore-based bacteria found in healthy soils and our natural environment. In our modern and hyper-sanitized world, this primitive yet vital connection to nature has been all but lost.

    Soil-based organisms (SBOs) define a class of probiotic supplements based on a greater understanding of the incredible diversity of the human gut, coupled with a deeper appreciation for how humans and their commensal “helper” bacteria work together to produce a healthy system.

    Soil-based bacteria have a three-stage life cycle, with each stage triggered by nutrient availability: vegetative growth, sporulation, and germination. The sporulation phase is particularly relevant to its potential as a probiotic. The spore structure preserves the bacteria in a dormant phase and against any harm whether in any terrestrial environment or in the acidic environments of the stomach and upper intestines. When these probiotic microbiota are ingested, they travel all the way to the lower intestine where they come alive. Like a seed, warm temperatures, moisture, and nutrients stimulate the germination stage where bacteria emerges from dormancy. Soil-based probiotics are well-adapted to the environment of the gut, and have been shown to remain in the digestive tract where they can provide long term benefit.

    SBO probiotics are characterized by two traits that make them superior to other probiotics: 1) the spore phase enabling natural resistance to the harsh environment of the upper digestive tract and stomach, and 2) inherent environmental stability that does not require the addition of specialized coatings or preservatives to ensure a clinically relevant amount reaches the appropriate areas of the gut.

    Though SBO probiotics are based directly on symbiotic communities of bacteria found in natural soil environments, these organisms are not harvested directly from the earth to be packaged as a supplement. They are instead produced in a safe, monitored environment to ensure specificity of the strains.

    Why are soil-based probiotics so popular among clinicians, and what makes them so important?  The answer to this question lies in an understanding of the human gut microbiome.

    MULTI-STRAIN BACILLUS COMPLEX

    Bacteria are incredibly ubiquitous, highly adaptable ancient life forms that evolved relatively unchanged over nearly 4 billion years. Bacillus, in particular, is likely Earth’s most resilient bacteria―the oldest of which having been cultured and identified from the abdominal contents of extinct bees preserved in amber for 25 to 40 million years.

    Through diet and lifestyle, our earliest ancestors were routinely exposed to bacillus spores found in healthy soils and our natural environment. Yet we no longer have routine exposure to bacillus spores due to the hyper-sanitization of our post-industrial civilization. Terraflora’s unique probiotic + prebiotic bio-complex of commensal bacillus strains reconnect humans with their ancestral environment.

    Terraflora™ bridges the lost connection to our natural environment, with a sophisticated probiotic bio-complex of specific, commensal Bacillus strains. Selected for their unique characteristics, Bacillus are gram-positive bacteria that can exist in two forms. Under favorable conditions the bacteria grow in a vegetative form, but when starved of nutrients they differentiate into a dormant life form known as an “endospore” or simply a “spore”. These spores come alive when introduced to an ideal environment, like the human gut.

    Terraflora’s innovative DNA verified strain combination introduces Ribospore™ (Bacillus pumilus) and Bacillus megaterium EM144™, microorganisms scientifically proven to effectively produce highly bioavailable antioxidants and riboflavin, right at the site of absorption. Riboflavin is an essential nutrient for maintaining a healthy digestive tract.

    In addition to our proprietary new RibosporeTM (Bacillus pumilus) and Bacillus Megaterium EM144TM—Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus clausii, and Bacillus coagulans complete Terraflora’s multi-strain probiotic bio-complex.

    ADVANCED PREBIOTIC BIO-COMPLEX

    Terraflora™ contains a prebiotic blend of certified organic, wild-harvested seaweeds, mushroom extracts, and humic acid. These ancient, food-based prebiotics support commensal microbiota with a diverse spectrum of naturally-occurring polyphenols and polysaccharides designed to strengthen healthy intestinal flora. This bio-complex includes:

    LARCH ARABINOGALACTAN: A solvent-free water extract that retains all bioactive polyphenolic flavonoids present in Larch, including taxifolin and quercetin. Larch arabinogalactan is a densely branched, non-starch polysaccharide consisting of galactose and arabinose molecules. It has been shown to increase production of critical short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) such as butyrate in the gut. Butyrate is the principle fuel for intestinal cells and supports healthy tight junctions in the gut lining. In addition, Larch arabinogalactan enhances beneficial gut flora and increases levels of beneficial intestinal anaerobes, particularly Bifidobacterium longum.

    FUCUS VESICULOSUS (BLADDERWRACK) & UNDARIA PINATIFIDA (WAKAME) EXTRACTS: These are certified organic solvent-free water extracts that are wild-harvested from clean ocean waters of Patagonia and Nova Scotia. They are rich in marine polyphenols and complex, sulfated, fucose-rich polysaccharides called fucoidans. Fucoidans are found in edible brown seaweeds and are shown to have multiple bioactivities including the support of healthy inflammation response in the GI tract. In vitro studies show that fucoidan effectively inhibits adhesion of pathogenic bacteria Helicobacter pylori and Escherichia coli to human cells. Furthermore, they increase the abundance of beneficial bacteria and significantly decrease inflammatory response and antigen load of the gut microbiota. In addition, they may also help maintain levels of beneficial bacteria in the gut during antibiotic use and are also known to increases the integrity of tight junctions in the gut lining.

    NORDIC CHAGA EXTRACT: This ingredient is a certified organic hot-water extract obtained exclusively from the mushroom fruiting body. It is sustainably wild-harvested in the Arctic (Finnish Lapland forest) and contains a diverse spectrum of polysaccharides and polyphenols. This extract has been shown to help protect against acute colonic inflammation and shown to decrease the Firmicutes-to-Bacteroidetes bacterial ratios. Decreased Firmicutes-to-Bacteroidetes ratios are significantly associated with lower body mass index (BMI).

    RED REISHI EXTRACT: A certified organic extract obtained by traditional hot-water extraction methods exclusively from the mushroom fruiting body. It contains a diverse spectrum of polysaccharides and polyphenols that have been shown to increase microbiota richness and regulate intestinal barrier function. It is known to support the health of the gut lumen. Furthermore, is has been shown to decrease Firmicutes-to-Bacteroidetes ratios and endotoxin-bearing Proteobacteria levels.

    HUMIC ACID: The humic acid in Terraflora™ is water extracted from ancient freshwater humate deposits. It has been shown to significantly increase the overall concentration of colonic microbiota.

      A Critical Review on Health Promoting Benefits of Edible Mushrooms through Gut Microbiota
      https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5618583/

      Abstract
      Mushrooms have long been used for medicinal and food purposes for over a thousand years, but a complete elucidation of the health-promoting properties of mushrooms through regulating gut microbiota has not yet been fully exploited. Mushrooms comprise a vast, and yet largely untapped, source of powerful new pharmaceutical substances. Mushrooms have been used in health care for treating simple and common diseases, like skin diseases and pandemic diseases like AIDS. This review is aimed at accumulating the health-promoting benefits of edible mushrooms through gut microbiota. Mushrooms are proven to possess anti-allergic, anti-cholesterol, anti-tumor, and anti-cancer properties. Mushrooms are rich in carbohydrates, like chitin, hemicellulose, β and α-glucans, mannans, xylans, and galactans, which make them the right choice for prebiotics. Mushrooms act as a prebiotics to stimulate the growth of gut microbiota, conferring health benefits to the host. In the present review, we have summarized the beneficial activities of various mushrooms on gut microbiota via the inhibition of exogenous pathogens and, thus, improving the host health.

      Prebiotics from Marine Macroalgae [seaweeds] for Human and Animal Health Applications
      https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2920542/

      Abstract
      The marine environment is an untapped source of bioactive compounds. Specifically, marine macroalgae (seaweeds) are rich in polysaccharides that could potentially be exploited as prebiotic functional ingredients for both human and animal health applications. Prebiotics are non-digestible, selectively fermented compounds that stimulate the growth and/or activity of beneficial gut microbiota which, in turn, confer health benefits on the host. This review will introduce the concept and potential applications of prebiotics, followed by an outline of the chemistry of seaweed polysaccharides. Their potential for use as prebiotics for both humans and animals will be highlighted by reviewing data from both in vitro and in vivo studies conducted to date.

      Impact of humic acids oun the colonic microbiome in healthy volunteers
      https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2920542/

      Abstract
      AIM: To test the effects of humic acids on innate microbial communities of the colon.
      METHODS: We followed the effects of oral supplementation with humic acids (Activomin®) on concentrations and composition of colonic microbiome in 14 healthy volunteers for 45 d. 3 × 800 mg Activomin® were taken orally for 10 d followed by 3 × 400 mg for 35 d. Colonic microbiota were investigated using multicolor fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) of Carnoy fixated and paraffin embedded stool cylinders. Two stool samples were collected a week prior to therapy and one stool sample on days 10, 31 and 45. Forty-one FISH probes representing different bacterial groups were used.
      RESULTS: The sum concentration of colonic microbiota increased from 20% at day 10 to 30% by day 31 and remained stable until day 45 (32%) of humic acid supplementation (P < 0.001). The increase in the concentrations in each person was due to growth of preexisting groups. The individual microbial profile of the patients remained unchanged. Similarly, the bacterial diversity remained stable. Concentrations of 24 of the 35 substantial groups increased from 20% to 96%. Two bacterial groups detected with Bac303 (Bacteroides) and Myc657 (mycolic acid-containing Actinomycetes) FISH probes decreased (P > 0.05). The others remained unaffected. Bacterial groups with initially marginal concentrations (< 0.1 × 109/mL) demonstrated no response to humic acids. The concentrations of pioneer groups of Bifidobacteriaceae, Enterobacteriaceae and Clostridium difficile increased but the observed differences were statistically not significant.
      CONCLUSION: Humic acids have a profound effect on healthy colonic microbiome and may be potentially interesting substances for the development of drugs that control the innate colonic microbiome.

  • ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS (EMF) AND NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS

    Fred Liers PhD EMF electromagnetic fields nutritional supplementsWe live in a digital world enjoying convenient and limitless access to people, information, and the Internet of Things. What could be the downside? EMF for one.

    What is EMF? EMF stands for "Electromagnetic Fields." Electromagnetic fields encompass an entire spectrum of waves from extremely low frequencies (ELF) and visible light to ultra-high frequencies, such as cosmic rays (ionizing radiation).

    What I refer to as "EMF" is the non-ionizing radiation to which we are exposed from cell phones and cell-phone towers, Wi-Fi, cellular data, Bluetooth, smart meters, computers, solar panel inverters, AC-to-DC transformers, power lines, and signals from other digital devices.

    Is EMF harmful? Yes, there is a large body of scientific evidence showing EMF can be extremely harmful. Plenty of evidence has existed for decades. Do a search on PubMed. The harms of EMF are not publicized to consumers, especially by companies profiting from the digital and wireless revolutions.

    The problem: every year there are more cell phone towers, Wi-Fi networks, "Smart" meters, and solar panel inverters. Soon California will mandate all new homes must have solar power, which means more EMF. Beyond this, there are millions of 5G antennas coming to your region, as part of the most powerful wireless network ever built.

    Most health care professionals don't know much about EMF and the importance of reducing exposure. However, there are a growing number of physicians who understand the dangers of EMF. They can make suggestions for lowering EMF exposure and may also refer you to EMF mitigation experts.

    There are four types of EMF building biologists generally test for in homes: 1) Radiofrequency fields (RF), 2) magnetic fields, 3) electric fields, and 4) electromagnetic interference (EMI) or "dirty electricity." All four types can cause health issues, so it is important to measure and isolate them so you can take action to reduce each type of field, respectively.

    I tested my house and office for all four types of EMF—and found all four of them at high levels. I have since mitigated them to safer levels. I continue to find ways to reduce EMF and my exposures to them.

    Ways that various types of EMF cause damage to biological systems:

    • DNA Damage - Radiofrequency (RF) radiation induces both single- and double-stranded DNA breaks in human and animal cells. When DNA breaks are not properly repaired, the long-term damage results in adverse health effects.

    • Voltage Gated Calcium Channels (VGCC) - EMF opens VGCCs causing cells to be flooded with calcium. This excess calcium disrupts multiple pathways, leading to various negative effects, including increased oxidative stress, disrupted nerve cell communication, and heart-related problems.

    • Blood Brain Barrier - EMF can open the blood-brain barrier causing toxins or other harmful substances to enter the brain, and for the brain to leak" substances it requires, such as nutrients or neurotransmitters.

    • Melatonin Hormone Reduction - EMF suppresses the production of melatonin, which is the antioxidant hormone responsible for repairing the body during sleep. When the body does not properly repair itself at night, problems can arise from immune-related conditions to premature aging.

    • Microbiome Disruption - Just as all cells—including those in our body, are electrical, the organisms in our microbiome are electrical, too. There is evidence to show that our microbiome is harmed by EMF.

    These are some of the ways that EMF can harm health. When you add them together, you begin to get a picture showing that EMF can cause significant harm to biological systems. Many scientists have suggested how EMF can contribute to almost any health condition from autism to Alzheimer's disease.

    Certain people, myself included, can immediately feel the effects of EMF exposure. Immediate or short-term effects can vary from fatigue, low-energy, and mental fogginess to head and body pains, and ringing in the ears (tinnitus). Terms used to describe the state of being sensitive to EMF are "Electromagnetic Sensitivity" and "Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity" (EHS).

    Persons who suffer from EHS may range from 2% to 7% of the population or higher. Yet, whether or not you are "EHS" or feel effects from EMF exposure, science shows your body remains subject to adverse effects, including oxidative damage. That is, just because you do not feel it, does not mean it is not harmful.

    Note: there is evidence that certain frequencies of EMF can support health. These often fall into the category of PEMF or "pulsed electromagnetic fields." Another example: the Schumann resonances (7.82 Hz – 33.8 Hz), which are natural electromagnetic resonances created by lightning discharges from the ionosphere and the surface of the earth. The Schumann resonances are natural earth frequencies to which humans and all life has been exposed for millions of years.

    MY EMF STORY

    In my case, I never really noticed any problems until I had a solar panel power system installed on my roof—on two different homes, one in 2014 and the other in 2017. In both cases, I was exposed for relatively long periods at short distances to smart meters and solar inverters, as well as solar-related Wi-Fi equipment.

    Shortly after the first installation, I noticed fatigue, inability to concentrate, and pressure in my head. I did not initially make the connection between how I was feeling and the solar installation, which included a DC to AC inverter and two smart meters. I tried to keep my analog electric meter, but the solar company told me only digital smart meters are compatible with the solar power system.

    My symptoms improved when I moved my desk away from the wall on whose opposite side the solar equipment was located. Shortly thereafter, we moved to a different home in our metropolitan area. A few years later, we had solar panels installed on our new house. I hoped to avoid symptoms similar to what I had experience previously. No such luck.

    After the second solar installation in 2017, I again experienced fatigue, inability to concentrate, as well as pain in my head. I moved my desk and unplugged the solar company's dedicated Wi-Fi unit that measures solar power generation. I felt better. But over a period of months I developed increasing low-tone tinnitus (ringing in the ears). At first it sounded like a small plane or a truck engine in the distance. The noise grew louder. Then it rumbled night and day. I realized it wasn't an engine when I discovered the noise was significantly louder in my right ear. Alarmed, I began the process of eliminating possible causes. I finally eliminated all causes—except for EMF.

    I started reading every book I could find about EMF. I read dozens of books, watched videos on the topic, and spoke to EMF experts. During this period my son chose to research EMF for science fair project. His initial idea was to build something for me (like a tinfoil helmet) to reduce my exposure. That idea evolved into measuring the EMF levels emitted by all electronics in our house.

    My son's science project would go on to regionals in our state. Yet for me, the most important thing was how it contributed to our understanding of EMF. It was a launch pad driving us deeper into research, and led to the implementation of many EMF mitigation strategies. Our entire family benefited from it.

    EMF science fair project My son Olin's 4th-grade science fair project on EMF at Southern Arizona regionals.
    EMF electromagnetic fields project Olin in front of his project board.

    It took months, but what we learned helped us take actions to mitigate EMF exposure. My tinnitus began fading and then diminished significantly so that it is not a daily issue for me. This was empowering for me because I took positive actions that made a difference in my health. The process continues because EMF in the environment is not going away. I remain vigilant. Yet, I hope my experience can help you reduce your EMF exposure, or avoid developing EMF sensitivity.

    I still use cell phones and other digital devices. But I use them less and in much smarter ways. Ways that reduce my EMF exposure. Due to my research and experience with EMF, my awareness of its dangers is such that my thinking on the topic is forever changed. I can never take EMF safety for granted. That is a good thing.

    EMF FROM SMART METERS, CELL PHONES, SOLAR INVERTERS, ETC.

    Smart meters and DC-to-AC solar inverters can produce high levels of electromagnetic interference (EMI), which is one form of EMF. For more information on EMI, read Samuel Milham's Dirty Electricity (see resources section below). After reading that book, I considered the possibility that EMI could be contributing to my problems with EMF.

    I learned that any device (like an inverter) that converts DC power (say from solar panels) into AC power (home outlets) can add unwanted forms of electricity into the AC power. Clean (60 Hz) electricity becomes polluted by electromagnetic interference. The higher the levels of this EMI or "dirty" electricity, the greater the amount of health effects.

    I obtained a broadband EMI meter from Greenwave to measure dirty electricity in my home. I measured EMI levels with the solar system running at midday. Recommended EMI levels are 25–50 millivolts. Yet, every outlet in the house measured almost 2,000 millivolts (1,986  millivolts to be precise!).

    I shut off the solar inverter (disabling it and two smart meters) to measure baseline dirty electricity. EMI levels dropped to less than 200 millivolts! This meant one thing: components of our solar system causing high levels (1700+ millivolts) of dirty electricity.

    Greenwave EMI EMF meter Greenwave's EMI meter measures dirty electricity in household wiring.

    My first solution was to purchase multiple plug-in Greenwave EMI filters. I installed them in about 25 outlets throughout my home. They reduced EMI significantly, but they did not reduce it much in the outlets nearest to area that houses the breaker box, solar inverter, and smart meters. A few outlets away from that area exhibited stubbornly high EMI (1,500+ millivolts).

    After further research, I called Satic USA. Satic is a solar company that understands that EMI can affect people. They have products designed to condition an electrical system to remove dirty electricity. I  purchased a line conditioner (Super Duty Power Perfect Box) from Satic specifically created to clean EMI from photovoltaic (PV) solar systems.

    Note: Satic describes its line conditioners primarily as energy saving devices and protectors of electrical equipment. Clean power is more efficient. Yet, clean, conditioned AC power means reduced EMI. Thus, there is a human health component built-in, if you will.

    The Power Perfect Box was installed by an electrician near our breaker box. This line conditioner (containing two harmonic rectifiers) removed many unwanted harmonics and transients induced into our homes' electrical system by the solar inverter and smart meters.

    Above all, I felt better. I could focus better. I slept better. So did everyone else in the house. And my tinnitus began to diminish.

    Satic USA EMF EMI dirty electricity Satic USA's "Power Perfect Box" is a line conditioner that directly connects to the breaker box where it "cleans" your AC power using two harmonic rectifiers.

    I highly recommend obtaining a Power Perfect Box if you have a smart meter, solar power inverter, or dirty electricity (EMI) coming from your utility. Measure baseline dirty electricity in AC outlets using a broadband EMI meter (like Greenwave) after turning off your solar inverter and and smart meters.

    Satic makes several types of Power Perfect Box. Which one you need depends on how many harmonic rectifiers your electrical system requires. They also make smaller, lower-cost in-line and plug-in EMF Eliminator devices, which act as high-capacity EMI filters. These provide less protection than a Power Perfect Box, but more than a Greenwave filter. Satic will recommend products based on your unique needs. If you contact Satic to order, ask for Alden and mention my name, then he may offer you a discount.

    At Satic's recommendation, I kept the plug-in Greenwave filters in power outlets throughout my home. Between the line conditioner and the Greenwave filters, EMI now ranges from 15 millivolts to 300 millivolts in most outlets during the day. It is lowest (10–50 millivolts) at night when the solar system is not running.

    Note: Many homes only require Greenwave plug-in filters because EMI (dirty electricity) levels are already low to moderate (100-300 millivolts), as measured by a Greenwave meter. However, a residence or office with a typical solar panel installation peaks at about 2,000 millivolts. Thus, a solar-powered home, office, or school may require a dedicated line conditioner to reduce EMI below reductions obtained by plug-in filters.

    Multiple Greenwave filters plugged into AC outlets can further reduce EMI. The combination of a line conditioner (like Satic USA's Power Perfect Box) and plug-in Greenwave filters works well to bring EMI down to safer levels.

    Greenwave EMI filters EMF Greenwave EMI filters plug into household AC outlets to reduce dirty electricity.

    NOT DONE WITH EMF YET

    Another EMF issue arose. It seems my exposure to EMF from the home solar system prior to mitigation had led to a general sensitivity to EMF from other sources. That is, even though I had reduced my exposure to fields relating to the solar panel system and its parts (smart meters, solar inverter, solar-related Wi-Fi equipment), I had nevertheless become more sensitive to EMF from cell phones, cellular phone data, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, vehicle electronics, and other sources.

    This sensitivity meant that solving the dirty electricity (EMI) problem and dramatically reducing my tinnitus, while helpful, would not be sufficient to stop my suffering related to other EMF sources. It would take effort to identify the sources, and then remove or mitigate them.

    EMF METERS

    Meters are your best friend when it comes to measuring EMF. About the same time I found the Greenwave EMI meter—EMI is just one type of EMF—I obtained three or four meters designed to measure other types of electromagnetic fields.

    Some of my favorite meters are the Acoustimeter AM-10 (from EMFields), the Trifield 100XE (from Alpha Labs), and the ME3030B (from Gigahertz Solutions). Each meter can provide different insights into how much EMF exposure you receive from various sources.

    EMF Acoustimeter AM-10 EMFields' Acoustimeter AM-10 is sensitive, measures a wide range of frequencies (200 MHz–8 GHz), and offers a sound component.

    I began the process of measuring every type of device from iPads to cell phone chargers. I carried meters with me everywhere I went. During his science fair project, I helped my son measure and document readings from EMF sources at multiple distances. This data would be invaluable for my own mitigation efforts.

    Overall, EMF levels were far greater than I expected, and from a wider variety of sources not just mobile phones or Wi-Fi routers. For example, wireless toys and cordless phones can be among the worst offenders in the RF frequencies. Even indoor hydroponic systems can generate high levels of dirty electricity.

    Trifield 100XE meter EMF The TriField Meter 100XE is simple to use and cost-effective.

    Using my meters to obtain accurate measurements, I began reducing my exposure to all sources of EMF. The more I reduced EMF exposures, the better I felt. I noticed—and continue to notice—improvements in focus, mental energy, and overall well being.

    EMF MITIGATION SOLUTIONS

    If my EMF problems are a challenge to solve, then at least there are some upsides. My research has led me to solutions that allow me to heal and avoid symptoms. I am empowered to act upon my knowledge, and to share it.

    In many ways, my experience has been a blessing. I am now aware of EMF dangers. While I would not wish anyone to have my experience, I hope that sharing my experience can help even a few people to avoid adverse health effects of EMF.

    Here are some actions you can take that have helped me. I recommend you take these actions whether or not you feel symptoms or believe you are not affected by EMF.

    • Create a wired Internet network in the home. Computers, laptops, and HDTVs can run on hardwired Ethernet connections. Smart phones and tablets can be hardwired using Ethernet adaptor cords. Use Wi-fi routers infrequently (minimize use), or not at all. Keep routers as far away from living areas as possible.

    • Keep smart phones in airplane mode whenever possible. Minimize use of cell phones for calls. Use Air tube headsets and speaker phones whenever possible to provide distance from the device.

    • Use an anti-radiation mobile phone case (like SafeSleeve). Avoid using mobile phones in a vehicles like cars and buses (as vehicles act as Faraday cages in which signals just bounce around). Keep away from phone or tablet when downloading data. Turn off Wi-Fi and cellular data on the phone most of the time.

    • Never keep mobile phones in pockets or close to the body. Turn phone off or use airplane mode if phone must be kept in proximity to the body.

    • Turn off electronics (phones, routers, Bluetooth devices) at night. Keep cell phones and other electronics out of your bedroom. Put your router on timer switch to shut off automatically at 9 or 10 pm.

    • Use a landline phone. Yes, landline phone service still exists in most places.

    • Obtain a good general EMF meter or two, such as a Trifield, Acoustimer, Cornet, or ME3030B (Gigahertz Solutions). Test your house and your devices.

    • Test for electromagnetic interference (EMI) in household outlets using a EMI meter. Install a line conditioner and/or EMI filters (to reduce "dirty electricity"). You can obtain EMI meters and filters from Greenwave or Stetzer.

    • Shield smart meters using special "radiant barrier" anti-radiation materials, like Satic Shield (from Satic USA) or Reflectix (available at Home Depot). Place shielding on the interior wall opposite the meter. There are also metal meter cages for blocking fields coming from the face and sides of smart meter.

    • Consider an in-line conditioner for your electrical system, especially if you have a smart meter or solar panels—or measure significant amounts (300+ millivolts) of dirty electricity on your wiring. I am pleased with Satic USA's line conditioner (Power Perfect Box) that attaches to my electrical breaker box. If you contact Satic to order a line conditioner, ask for Alden and mention my name. He may give you a discount.

    • Keep a Faraday bag available for times when you want to block all signals to or from your smart phone or other devices. They are available for less than $20.

    EMF smart meter reflectix radiant barrier shield Reflectix radiant barrier is ideal for shielding smart meters.

    The more simple actions I take to reduce EMF, the better I feel. The list of actions I take to reduce EMF exposure grows weekly, it seems. Most of my symptoms have gone away. However, I have no desire to risk them coming back. Whenever possible, I avoid other people using cell phones, reduce time spent in places with Wi-Fi routers, smart meters, cell phone towers, etc.

    I have become more sensitive than some of my meters (at least sometimes), so I feel that I am nearly a kind of meter myself in terms detecting the presence and magnitude of electromagnetic fields. Even so, I am often surprised by high EMF readings using my meters. Takeaway: Relying solely on yourself (no matter how sensitive you think you are), is not the best idea.

    The most important thing you can do is to obtain a good EMF meter. Measure around your house, your devices, and appliances. Unless you actually have a meter, you will not likely optimize EMF reduction—because you can't see EMFs. If cost is an issue, certain online stores let you rent EMF meters. Get started today!

    BEST SUPPLEMENTS FOR EMF

    The first lines of defense against EMF should be increasing distance from EMF sources, and reducing duration of exposure. These make a huge difference for protecting health.

    One cannot control all sources of exposure. Neighbors have routers, smart meters, antennas, and other sources of EMF generating electronic pollution ("electrosmog"). Wi-Fi is nearly everywhere these days.

    A huge component in EMF defense is nutritional supplements. Why? Because levels of EMF to which we are commonly exposed result in oxidative stress requiring high levels of antioxidants to quench free radicals. Fortunately, HPDI produces some of the best nutritional supplements available for dealing with EMF.

    I already had a good diet and took plenty of high-quality nutritional supplements when my problems with EMF started. What I began doing differently was 1) taking generally higher doses of antioxidants and 2) targeting my antioxidant defense systems with specific antioxidant supplements.

    By focusing on meeting my higher needs for antioxidants, and by adding specific supplements known for their antioxidant capabilities, I believe I mitigate the worst adverse effects of EMF. Antioxidant supplements noticeably support my ability to function as normally as possible given both my past experiences with EMF, and the ongoing daily needs for antioxidant defense.

    I will describe the supplements I believe are most important to take for EMF exposure. I take all these supplements. I include every one of these supplements because each offers a unique benefit. Together they are the most essential formulas to help both with routine, daily exposures to EMF (like Wi-Fi and cell phones), as well as other types of exposures, such as proximity to potent EMF sources from smart meters to cell phone towers.

    ANTIOXIDANT & VITAMIN C FORMULAS

    The primary type of damage caused by EMF is oxidative stress, the most important type of nutritional supplements to help with free-radical damage are antioxidant formulas, including vitamin C and Nrf2 activator supplements. HPDI offers a complete range of antioxidant and Nrf2 activator products.

    PRO-C™ ANTIOXIDANT FORMULA

    PRO-C™ is an advanced free-radical protection formula. It performs double-duty as both a potent vitamin C formula and an superb antioxidant formula. It therefore provides important benefits when used in applications requiring Vitamin C and/or free-radical defense, e.g., protocols for general health, anti-aging, rejuvenation, etc.

    PRO-C™ contains 500 mg (833% RDA) of buffered non-GMO Vitamin C (in the form of powdered calcium, magnesium, and zinc ascorbates), as well as high-potency Grape Extract (from grape seeds, skins, and pulp), green tea extract, reduced glutathione, n-acetyl-l-cysteine (NAC), r-lipoic acid, coenzyme forms of Vitamin B2 and Vitamin B6, and selenium. Many of these ingredients are powerful Nrf2 activators.

    If I were to take just one antioxidant/vitamn C formula, PRO-C™ would be it. However, I also take another antioxidant formula called Ultimate Protector. I believe the combination of the two superb formulas works even better for EMF exposure. That's partly because Ultimate Protector activates Nrf2 in cells allowing them to generate their own antioxidants.

    ULTIMATE PROTECTOR™
    NRF2 ACTIVATOR FORMULA

    ULTIMATE PROTECTOR™ is a next-generation cell protection formula providing Nrf2 protective enzyme activators, high levels of non-GMO Vitamin C, and a full spectrum of exceptionally high potency antioxidants (with an ORAC5.0™ value of 486,000 (per six capsules).

    By taking Ultimate Protector along with PRO-C™ as my primary antioxidant defense formulas, I maximize my EMF protection by allowing their benefits to function synergistically for greater effect.

    OTHER FOUNDATIONAL FORMULAS

    I emphasize the importance of antioxidant formulas because they are most effective at quenching the free-radicals caused by exposure to electromagnetic fields. In reality, HPDI's antioxidant and vitamin C formulas are part of a complete system of HPDI supplements. This three-tiered system includes foundational supplements, enhancement formulas, and condition-specific formulas.

    While antioxidant supplements are most important EMF defense, the truth is that antioxidant supplements work far better when they are properly combined with other foundational supplements in the HPDI system. That is, a high-potency multivitamin, essential fatty acids, and a Rejuvenate!™ superfood.

    The case for multivitamins is abundantly clear. If you look at the list of harmful effects of EMF (above), you will see that in addition to free-radical damage, EMF harms many essential biological functions in cells. Many of these functions cause cells to require additional vitamins and minerals. These nutrients can be provided by a high-potency multivitamin that provides both optimal amounts (versus minimal amounts) of nutrients, but also proper forms (like coenzyme vitamins) that are most readily assimilated and used by the body. Such forms are immediately used and do not require conversion to usable forms.

    MULTIVITAMINS:
    HIGH-POTENCY, HIGH-PURITY

    HPDI Multivitamins include five different formulas, including a children's chewable that scales up easily for adults. Two of the primary multivitamins are Multi Two Caps and Mighty Multi-Vite (caps).

    Multi Two Caps - A comprehensive multivitamin providing optimal levels of key vitamins, minerals, and cofactors. Includes higher levels of B vitamins.

    Mighty-Multi-Vite! - Similar to Multi Two Caps, but offers higher levels of key phytonutrients turmeric, grape extract, and broccoli sprouts powder.

    HPDI's high-potency multivitamins provide:

    • B-Complex vitamins: B-Complex vitamins supports enzyme systems. Enzymes are required for all metabolic functions in the body. B vitamins are cofactors required for every enzymatic reaction.

    • Minerals. HPDI multivitamins provide 10 or more key minerals. Like B vitamins, minerals support enzyme systems. At the center is every enzyme is an important mineral necessary for its function.

    • NAC (N-Acetyl-Cysteine): NAC increases glutathione levels, which are important antioxidant defense in the body.

    • Fat-soluble vitamins A, C, D, E, and K. Fat soluble vitamins perform many essential functions, including protection of cell membranes.

    Multi Two Caps multivitamin EMF

    HPDI MULTIVITAMINS FEATURES

    • COMPLETE, BALANCED CORE NUTRITION. Full-Spectrum of Nutrients Exceptionally Balanced for Supporting Your Health. Foundational Formula Ideal for Providing Essential Foundational  Nutrition. A high-quality multivitamin is the foundation (i.e., core) for a complete nutritional supplement program.
    • RAPID AND EFFECTIVE ASSIMILATION. Incorporates Bioavailable Vitamin and Mineral Carriers Your Body Recognizes and Can Assimilate Immediately. Plus, Multiple Carriers Ensure Assimilation. Tablet or Capsule Forms Rapidly Assimilated!
    • ENERGIZING: Includes Coenzyme Form Vitamins and Krebs Cycle Bionutrients that work with your body to create high energy levels. Full-Spectrum Essential Nutrients Needed For Building, Supporting, and Maintaining Excellent Health.
    • HIGH PURITY. Among the Purest Available Multivitamin supplements. Carefully Designed To Exclude Common Allergens, and Exclude or Minimize Excipients, Additives, and Fillers.

    If I could only take a single supplement daily, it would be a multivitamin. I personally prefer HPDI's Mighty Multi-Vite!. But Multi Two actually provides higher levels of important B vitamins.

    Multivitamins are too vital not to take daily. Fortunately, you are not limited to taking a single supplement. That is why I put antioxidant and vitamin C formulas at the top of the list for protection against EMF. The truth is, however, that both a multivitamin and antioxidants are essential for foundational nutrition. You need both to ensure optimal protection from EMF. There are a few more critical nutrients you need, as well.

    ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS (EFA)

    Another important foundational supplement is essential fatty acids (EFA). Essential fats are critical for cellular function, cell membrane health, combating inflammatory processes, and overall health. Essential fats are necessary for cellular health. Yet, because EMF creates problems at the cellular level, it is even more vital to obtain essential fats to help cells function at their best.

    People overlook the importance of essential fats. That is, I notice that multivitamins and antioxidants are far more likely to be prioritized, and therefore taken daily. Fair enough, because I prioritize those supplements too. Yet, we neglect essential fats at our peril. That is why I take EFAs daily, too.

    IMPORTANT FUNCTIONS OF ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS (EFA)

    • Regulate steroid production and hormone synthesis
    • Regulate pressure in the eyes, joints, and blood vessels
    • Regulate response to pain, inflammation, and swelling
    • Mediate Immune Response
    • Regulate bodily secretions and their viscosity
    • Dilate or constrict blood vessels
    • Regulate smooth muscle and autonomic reflexes
    • Are primary constituents of cellular membranes
    • Regulate the rate at which cells divide
    • Necessary for the transport of oxygen from the red blood cells to tissues
    • Necessary for proper kidney function and fluid balance
    • Prevent red blood cells from clumping together
    • Regulate nerve transmission

    When by diet or supplementation, you consume the correct ratios and amounts of essential fatty acids, then you allow the EFAs to act in ways critical for these functions. For more detailed information, see Dr. Hank's article, "The Truth About Essential Fatty Acids" (December 2017).

    HPDI's essential fatty acids formula is Essential Fats Plus E. Essential Fats Plus E provides essential fasts in the proper amounts and ratios for good health.

    Essential Fats Plus E EMF

    Essential Fats Plus E contains eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (important essential omega-3 fatty acids), gamma linolenic acid (GLA) (an important essential omega-6 fatty acid), and mixed tocotrienols and tocopherols (Vitamin E).

    The EPA and DHA are in the form of triglycerides derived from marine lipids (using patented flash molecular distillation) and the GLA is from cold-pressed borage seed oil. The mixed tocotrienols and tocopherols derive from rice bran oil, and are included in the softgel capsules for antioxidant protection of the polyunsaturated oils.

    Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are known to play important roles in the formation of prostaglandins. The prostaglandins are important cellular regulators controlling inflammatory processes and pain in the body.

    Fish oils may be useful adjuncts in protocols for 1) Cardiovascular disease, 2) Hypertension, 3) Arthritis and inflammatory disorders, 4) Psoriasis and skin problems, 5) Diabetes mellitus, 6) Depression, and 7) Kidney disease. GLA may be a useful adjunct in protocols for 1) Multiple Sclerosis and 2) Arthritis. Research indicates that in a balanced formula there are synergistic effects between EPA, DHA, and GLA. For example, it is known that EPA inhibits the conversion of GLA into pro-inflammatory (and pain-causing) arachidonic acid.

    Research indicates that in a balanced formula there are synergistic effects between EPA, DHA, and GLA. For example, it is known that EPA inhibits the conversion of GLA into pro-inflammatory (and pain-causing) arachidonic acid.

    Because these fatty acids have many double bonds that are prone to oxidation, Vitamin E is included in the forms of mixed tocotrienols and tocopherols. In addition, these forms of Vitamin E have been shown to reduce arterial plaques and enhance blood flow, inhibit thromboxane and platelet aggregation, protect serum lipids from oxidation (including LDL and HDL), reduce carotid stenosis (narrowing) and prevent stroke, trap harmful nitrogenous radicals, act as anti-proliferative agents, and provide powerful oxidative defense for the skin.

    Essential fatty acids are considered "essential" for all the reasons described. They are so critical for proper cellular function that not having sufficient essential  fats  (or the proper ratios) can impair important processes in the body. I believe EMF exposure puts additional stress on cells such that essential fats are even more necessary. So take an EFA supplement like Essential Fasts Plus E every day.

    HYDROGEN SUPPLEMENTS

    Hydrogen supplements can be very helpful for preventing or mitigating oxidative damage by EMF. I have recently written about two hydrogen formulas that support antioxidant defenses: Megahydrate and Active H2 Ultra. (See "Hydrogen Supplements – Active H2 Ultra and Megahydrate")

    MEGAHYDRATE

    Megahydrate (powder and capsules) provides H-, or the hydrogen anion, which provides lasting antioxidant protection. It this regard, it is highly effective at quenching free radical (even better than molecular hydrogen), greatly enhances the production of ATP (cellular energy) in the body, retains its antioxidant capacity for extended periods, and is the key unlocking the potential of water as the medium for nutrient replenishment and waste removal at the cellular level.

    The active ingredient in Megahydrate is silica hydride. One very important characteristic of the antioxidant capacity of silica hydride is that it is the only antioxidant that does not turn into a free radical (i.e., oxidant) once it has neutralized a free radical by donating its electron. Negatively-charged hydrogen turns into molecular hydrogen gas and/or turns into water.

    Megahydrate antioxidant EMF

    One daily dose of Megahydrate has more antioxidant power than hundreds of glasses of fresh vegetable and fruit juices, broccoli, brussel sprouts, leafy greens, and other foods rich in antioxidants and prevents free radical damage.

    Studies show that Megahydrate increases energy production (adenosine triphosphate or ATP) by up to four times.

    BENEFITS OF MEGAHYDRATE

    • Contains Hydrating Silica Microclusters®
    • Extremely Powerful Antioxidant
    • Recycles other Key Antioxidants in the Body
    • Extremely Safe and Non-Toxic
    • Easily Accesses All Cells in the body
    • Increases Cellular ATP Production by up to a factor of 4 times
    • Readily Converts NAD+ to NADH
    • Reduces Pain & Inflammation
    • Exhibits Powerful Anti-Aging Properties
    • Protects and Repairs DNA
    • Neutralizes Harmful Toxins like Fluoride, Chlorine, etc.
    • Protects Against and Repairs Radiation Damage
    • Increases Absorption of other Supplements
    • Lowers surface tension of water you drink leading to improved detoxification
    • Removes Heavy Metals from the Body
    • Balances pH or Alkalizes the body
    • Increases Zeta Potential of Human Cells
    • Increases Cellular Hydration
    • Very Stable – Works Over Extensive Time Periods
    • Reduces Lactic Acid Buildup During Intense Workouts
    • Protects Telomeres by allowing cells to exceed the Hayflick limit by 4–5 times

    I drink Megahydrate daily in water. I find it very energizing and it seems to potentiate the other antioxidant supplements. Usually I drink it mixed with Active H2 Ultra, which provides molecular hydrogen. But sometimes I drink Megahydrate all by itself, as it is an excellent standalone hydrogen formula.

    ACTIVE H2 ULTRA

    ACTIVE H2® ULTRA is my favorite molecular hydrogen formula. In fact, I almost always add this tablet into water that is already infused with Megahydrate. That is, I believe this formula works best when taken together with Megahydrate. I like this combination "fizzy" drink so much, I created a video showing how to make it.

    Active H2 Ultra tablets provides abundant hydrogen molecules that are uniquely found in fresh, raw, living foods and are essential to any serious antioxidation program.

    A unique and patent pending combination of magnesium and supporting nutrients are the only active substances in Active H2 Ultra. This distinguishes it from the existing synthetic chemical formulas as well as the use of electrolysis (as in water ionizers) to generate molecular hydrogen.

    The natural, proven Active H2 Ultra formula consists of a proprietary blend of pure magnesium metal, malic acid, tartaric acid, stearic acid, and dextrose that act synergistically in water to generate Molecular Hydrogen and electron-rich potential (-ORP).

    Active H2 Ultra EMF

    BENEFITS OF ACTIVE H2 ULTRA

    • Unsurpassed antioxidizing effects indicated by strong negative-ORP
    • Scavenging of cytotoxic oxygen radicals and highly reactive hydroxyl radicals
    • Reduction of oxidative stress and inflammation
    • Regulation of various gene expressions and protein-phosphorylations
    • A synergistic complement to other cellular antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin E, and glutathione
    • Enhanced endurance in daily activity and strenuous exercise
    • Clinically proven to reduce lactic acid levels during strenuous workouts
    • Reduced water cluster size for improved cellular hydration

      ACTIVE H2 ULTRA FEATURES

    • -700 mV ORP in 1 liter of pure water
    • Increases cellular hydration
    • Regular use heightens physical and mental energy
    • Supports mitochondrial ATP (energy) production
    • Alkalizing minerals (magnesium)
    • Quickly and cleanly dissolves in less than 1 minute - no waiting around for dissolution.
    • You can drink  as soon as the tablet dissolves – thereby getting greater amount of hydrogen than in tablets that take longer to dissolve.

    Hydrogen is emerging among the top super-nutrition discoveries of the 21st century. I am not waiting to gain its benefits. Just as many athletes are using it to gain a competitive advantage, I take Active H2 Ultra and Megahydrate for their effective antioxidant benefits and much more, including EMF protection. And so should you.

    RESTORE

    RESTORE is one of those products that go beyond anything else I've seen in terms of what is can do and how it does it. In fact, I recently published an article devoted solely to Restore (see "Restore Gut Health Formula + Video").

    The reason I include RESTORE in my list of top formulas for EMF exposure is because it protects the integrity of the gut barrier or tight junctions, supports the communications system in the gut microbiome, and acts as a fertilizer for the microbiome itself. These are important effects because EMF breaks down tight junctions, interferes with microbiome communications (as gut bacteria use their own weak EMF signals to communicate), and reduces microbiome health.

    restore gut health EMF

    RESTORE is a soil-derived, scientifically backed mineral supplement that creates a firewall against toxins entering the gut wall. RESTORE helps create a biological environment for "good" gut bacteria to grow and flourish in order to support improvement of overall health.

    RESTORE is not a probiotic. It is not a prebiotic. Rather, it is a carbon rich, alkaline liquid, with lignite derived trace organics and essential trace amino acids, that promotes an optimal environment in the gut. With 70% of the immune system located in the gut, this optimal gut environment leads to great gut health.

    Research has shown RESTORE to be non-toxic and to support the tight junction cells of the gut lining. Additionally, RESTORE has been shown both in the laboratory and clinically to help support the functioning of the gut barrier and improve gut health. In experiments, toxins like herbicides and gluten have been shown to degrade the gut barrier. RESTORE has been shown to promote the strengthening of the tight junction gut barrier in small and large gut membrane cells for gut health.

    One of the main elements in RESTORE is the lignite extract. Lignite comes from decomposed prehistoric matter. As plants decompose, they first form peat, which then turns into humate, then lignite, then leonardite and finally to coal. All of these are rich in carbon. One of the differences between all of these elements is the amount of time and pressure have been applied to them.

    OTHER IMPORTANT SUPPLEMENTS MITIGATING EMF EFFECTS

    My list of favorite supplements for EMF could be much longer. I will mention two other types of supplements I think can be useful for most people. One is magnesium and the other is C-60 (or Carbon-60).

    MAGNESIUM

    Magnesium is critical for supporting and enabling at least 400 enzymes in the body that are needed for the vital reactions in cells. EMF can damage or impair enzyme function. Therefore sufficient magnesium is essential for optimal cell function. One known problem is that most people are deficient in magnesium. When enzyme systems lack magnesium, they fail to properly function, resulting in many problems in the body, including lower energy production (ATP) and deficient metabolism.

    Magnesium also balances calcium in cells. When EMF causes voltage gated calcium channels (VGCC) to open flooding cells with calcium, the presence of magnesium may help because one of the functions of magnesium is preventing cellular calcium imbalances. Not to mention the role of magnesium in energy production—as energy is required to pump excess calcium out of cells.

    One of my favorite magnesium products is MYO-MAG. MYO-MAG is an advanced, synergistic magnesium formula that provides therapeutic levels of magnesium, plus nutrients that support the body's utilization of magnesium.

    MYO-MAG provides magnesium in the form of malate and diglycinate, as well as Vitamins B1, B2, and B6 (including coenzyme forms of these vitamins). The formula is buffered with a small amount of magnesium carbonate, and includes some manganese for mineral balance.

    MYO-MAG therefore is a highly effective oral magnesium supplement with benefits that include less fatigue and greater energy, improved metabolic functions, cardiovascular support, nutrition for muscles, reduced spasms or cramps, help for migraine headaches, and many others.

    The formula not only supports metabolism, but also cellular energy production (ATP) and optimal cellular function. It allows for rapid uptake and absorption of easily assimilated forms of magnesium. It also provides critical nutrients supporting energy production in the body.

    Because MYO-MAG rapidly boosts magnesium levels, individuals usually notice greater physical and mental energy, reduced fatigue, and often a greater sense of overall well being.

    Myo-Mag EMF MYO-MAG provides magnesium important for cellular energy.

    MYO-MAG contains ingredients participating in the production of ATP. One vegetarian capsule contains 100 mg of magnesium and 440 mg of l-malic acid. Vitamins B1 and B2 are included both in standard and phosphorylated forms. Also included are Vitamin B6 in its phosphorylated form only, manganese (because high levels of magnesium can deplete the body of it), magnesium carbonate (a malic acid buffer), and glycine as the carrier for a portion of the magnesium and for the manganese. MYO-MAG is contained in a vegetarian capsule to ensure rapid assimilation.

    Supplementing the diet with magnesium and malic acid may reverse conditions of low energy. Suggested daily amounts include 300–600 mg of magnesium and 1200–2400 mg of malic acid. Taking 3 to 8 MYO-MAG capsules daily can provide these amounts. Beyond this formula, HPDI offers a complete range of magnesium formulas, including Ancient Minerals topical magnesium chloride products (oil, flakes, and gel).

    CARBON-60

    Carbon-60 or C-60 is an experimental supplement providing extremely high antioxidant capacities. Carbon-60 provides research grade Carbon-60 Fullerenes (0.8 mg/ml) in organic olive oil. While this formula is formulated for research, it is known to be among the most powerful antioxidants available. The structure of the Fullerene allows for a large number of electrons to be held and repeatedly donated for the purpose of quenching free radicals. It therefore offers unrivaled  antioxidant capacity in the body.

    I will be talking a lot more about Carbon-60 in coming months. Suffice it to say that the research is showing that C-60 may be the future of antioxidant nutrition.

    CONCLUSION

    Few people have paid much attention to the dangers of EMF until recently. There is growing awareness that EMF contributes to health problems, as well as the mechanisms by which EMF damages the body. Given the rise in health conditions likely to be related to EMF exposure, it makes sense to take action now, rather than unnecessarily risking harmful effects of exposures.

    There are many actions you take to protect yourself and your family. These include turning off Wi-Fi, putting cell phones on airplane mode, shielding smart meters (or keeping your analog meters), increasing distance from EMF sources, and reducing duration of exposure.

    Taking nutritional supplements providing good levels of antioxidant nutrients and supporting metabolic functions makes a lot of sense, too. Supplements have helped me be healthier and recover faster from EMF exposures. They likely can help you and yours do the same.

    EMF damages your cells daily. Take action to protect yourself!

  • GENETICS, EPIGENETICS & HUMAN BIOLOGY

    Genetics, Epigenetics, and Human Biology

    Dr. Hank Liers, PhD geneticsWe are entering a time in which new scientific tools are available that provide clear insights regarding the causes of poor health, as well as therapies that can be used to overcome health issues. Specifically, these tools include 1) our understanding and ability to characterize the human genome, and 2) advances in the science of epigenetics showing how environmental factors significantly influence the expression of genetics and human biology.

    For many years, my company (Health Products Distributors, Inc. – "HPDI") has been involved in Rejuvenation/Healing Programs which take multiple health modalities into consideration (for information on HPDI's Rejuvenation/Healing Programs, see Additional Resources below). Our programs have generally involved the following elements:

    1. Health-Building Nutrition
      Rejuvenation begins with nutrition in the broadest sense. That is, nutrition derived from healthy foods, superfoods, supplements, dietary nucleic acids, water and fluids, as well as via the skin. Establishing health-building nutrition is foundational to rejuvenating the body, mind, and spirit.
    2. Detoxification & Preventing Toxicity
      Individuals cannot fully experience rejuvenation without having effective means for removing existing toxins form the body, or for stopping further accumulation of toxins absorbed from foods, air, water, and skin. Such toxins include everything from chemicals in foods and water to the many toxins found in homes, workplaces, personal products, and just about everywhere.
    3. Building Powerful Immunity
      Building immunity is important for health because the immune system is the means by which the body defends itself. Yet, if the best defense is a strong offense, then having a strong immunity protects us in ways beyond just defense. Building immunity is accomplished not only by nutrition, but also by utilizing herbs, immune boosting supplements, and immune-enhancing protocols.
    4. Supporting Protocols
      Certain practices and protocols powerfully support rejuvenation. These protocols include exercise, massage, saunas/hydrotherapy,  yoga, acupuncture, meditation, and others.
    5. Attitude and Commitment to Becoming Healthy
      Attitude and Commitment are foundational to your rejuvenation/healing program because having total focused intention regarding your health is essential for success. If a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, establishing that intention perspective is a great place to start.

    ADDING GENETICS TEST TO HPDI REJUVENATION PROGRAM

    In the last few years, we have seen how healing and wellness programs can be significantly enhanced by adding genetics testing into the mix. In fact, we have joined forces with BodySync, a company with the most advanced single genetics test available. This test characterizes 45 different genes and gene variations. The Bodysync genetics test results are combined with basic lifestyle information provided by the patient to create a complete program customized for dealing with gene variations having either harmful or helpful effects.

    The insights gleaned by taking the BodySync genetics test provides new insights into reasons a person may experience health challenges that no other method can provide. The test results and action plan also provide information regarding genetic strengths, especially related to athletic performance and weight management.

    The NutriSync test from BodySync genetics

    HPDI now adds the BodySync genetics test to the list of key elements in our rejuvenation/healing programs. In fact, we are now introducing the BodySync genetic test along with consultations to our HPDI Reseller Associates—so that health practitioners (HPs) can experience the benefits of the test for themselves— and see how genetics consulting can be added to their practice. In addition, BodySync has selected HPDI as their preferred supplier of nutritional supplements supporting the recommendations provided in their Action Plans for individuals taking the test. It is exciting to be part of this breakthrough in the practice of genetic science.

    BROAD OVERVIEW OF GENETICS, EPIGENETICS, AND HUMAN BIOLOGY

    In order to give a more complete understanding of our program for attaining excellent health, we have developed a broad scientific overview of how all the key elements are related and eventually expressed as YOU.

    The diagram below provides a broad overview of genetics, epigenetics, and human biology with the goal of showing how the elements are interrelated. More discussion on the key elements is provided below the diagram.

    Genetics, Epigenetics, and Human Biology genetics

     

    GENOME

    The human genome is the sum of the body's DNA and is considered to be static for each individual—remaining the same over a lifetime. The human genome contains all the instructions needed to make the full range of human cell types including muscle cells and neurons. This includes all of the body's DNA, both the genes (the coding regions) and the noncoding DNA, as well as the genetic material of the mitochondria and chloroplasts.

    With the breakthrough in gene testing now available, it is possible to isolate relevant genes from a field of  approximately 20,000 different genes. These 20,000 different genes make up less than 2% of the total amount of DNA.

    It has been found that the underlying gene patterns can exhibit "genetic variations". Ultimately, genetic variations are caused by variations in the order of bases in the nucleotides in genes. New technology, such as that used in the BodySync genetics test, allows scientists to directly sequence DNA which has identified even more genetic variation than was previously detected by previous methods such as protein electrophoresis.

    Examination of DNA has shown genetic variation in both coding regions and in the non-coding intron (nonprotein-coding sections) region of genes. Mutation is the ultimate source of genetic variation, but mechanisms such as sexual reproduction and genetic drift contribute to it as well.

    Genetic variation will result in phenotypic variation if variation in the order of nucleotides in the DNA sequence results in a difference in the order of amino acids in proteins coded by that DNA sequence, and if the resultant differences in amino acid sequence influence the shape, and thus the function of the enzyme.

    Genetic variations/base substitutions can change a codon to one that encodes a different amino acid and cause a small change in the protein produced. For example, sickle cell anemia is caused by a substitution in the beta-hemoglobin gene, which alters a single amino acid in the protein produced.

    Genetic variations can change a codon to one that encodes the same amino acid and causes no change in the protein produced. These are called silent mutations.

    Also, base substitutions can change an amino-acid-coding codon to a single "stop" codon and cause an incomplete protein. This can have serious effects since the incomplete protein probably won't function.

    In some genetic variations there may be a piece of the DNA deleted or inserted in a gene that may also lead to Present/Insertion or Deletion variation (INDEL). Since protein-coding DNA is divided into codons three bases long, insertions and deletions can alter a gene so that its message is no longer correctly parsed.

    When it comes to genetic traits, scientists look at genes and the locus where that gene or trait encodes on the chromosome. Since humans possess two copies of each chromosome, they also have two copies of each gene and locus on those chromosomes. Each of these trait-encoding genes (or loci) is called an allele. If the alleles match, the person is homozygous for that trait. If the alleles are different, the person is heterozygous for that trait.

    If a mutation occurs in just one copy of the gene then that individual is considered heterozygous. On the other hand if both copies of a gene are mutated then that individual is homozygous genotype. Many of these mutations can have undesirable health affects for an individual.

    BodySync's technology has helped to usher in the age of personalized nutrigenomics. The company has built its intellectual property and technology to support its vision of providing services in partnership with health care professionals (HP). BodySync's NutriSync (NS) genetics test consists of only the most well-researched genetic variations with direct applicability to actionable personalized health and wellness recommendations (most of which fall into the epigenetic category).

    The NutriSync genetics test has been based on evaluations of thousands of peer reviewed articles, published research papers, and human intervention studies, as well as extracting data of tens of thousands of DNA and self-reported lifestyle samples in its database.

    EPIGENOME

    The human epigenome serves as a bio-record of chemical changes that have occurred in a person's DNA and their histone proteins. Unlike the underlying genome which is largely static within an individual, the epigenome can be dynamically altered by environmental conditions. For example methyl groups from the diet can tag DNA and activate or repress certain genes as shown in the diagram below.

    The epigenome is involved in regulating gene expression, development, tissue differentiation, and suppression of transposable elements. These changes in underlying DNA and histone proteins can be passed down to an organism's offspring via transgenerational epigenetic inheritance. Changes to the epigenome can result in changes to the structure of chromatin and changes to the function of the genome.

    EPIGENETICS

    Epigenetics, on the other hand, is the study of changes in gene expression (active versus inactive genes) that do not involve changes to the underlying DNA sequence — a change in phenotype (the manifestation that is YOU) without a change in genotype — which in turn affects how cells read the genes. To be sure, epigenetic change is a regular and natural occurrence in our bodies, but can also be influenced by several factors including age, the environment/lifestyle, drug usage, and disease state.

    Epigenetic modifications can manifest as commonly as the manner in which cells terminally differentiate to end up as skin cells, liver cells, brain cells, etc. Also, epigenetic change can have more damaging effects that can result in diseases like cancer. At least three epigenetic mechanisms (two of which are shown in the diagram below) including DNA methylation, histone modification, and non-coding RNA (ncRNA)-associated gene silencing are currently considered to initiate and sustain epigenetic change.

    genetics epigenetics mechanisms

    ENVIRONMENT

    In this context the term "ENVIRONMENT" refers to all of the "external" influences we experience. In the diagram we list what are generally considered to be positive and negative factors contributing to our overall health.

    Some of these factors such as free-radicals and drug use affect our genome directly. Environmental agents such as UV light, ionizing radiation, and genotoxic chemicals (e.g. the drug thalidomide) can cause DNA damage. DNA damage is very frequent, occurring on average about 10,000 times a day per cell of the human body.

    These damages are largely repaired, but at the site of a DNA repair, epigenetic changes can remain. In particular, a double strand break in DNA can initiate unprogrammed epigenetic gene silencing both by causing DNA methylation, as well as by promoting silencing types of histone modification.

    The field of epigenetics is rapidly growing and with it the understanding that both the environment and individual lifestyle directly interact with the genome to influence changes in the way various genes are expressed. These changes may be reflected at various stages throughout a person’s life and even in later generations. For example, human epidemiological studies have provided evidence that prenatal and early postnatal environmental factors influence the adult risk of developing various chronic diseases and behavioral disorders.

    Also, research has also shown that a mother’s exposure to pollution could impact her child's asthma susceptibility and her intake of Vitamin D could change DNA methylation that influences placenta functioning. It doesn’t stop at the mother, however, as further studies support that the father has a hand in his child’s health and epigenetic marks, as well.

    Although our epigenetic marks are more stable during adulthood, they are still thought to be dynamic and modifiable by lifestyle choices and environmental influence. It is becoming more apparent that epigenetic effects occur not just in the womb, but over the full course of a human life span, and that epigenetic changes could be reversed. There are numerous examples of epigenetics that show how different lifestyle choices and environmental exposures can alter marks on top of DNA and play a role in determining health outcomes.

    The environment is being investigated as a powerful influence on epigenetic tags and disease susceptibility. Pollution has become a significant focus in this research area as scientists are finding that air pollution could alter methyl tags on DNA and increase one’s risk for neurodegenerative disease. Also, adequate amounts of B vitamins may protect against harmful epigenetic effects of pollution and may be able to combat the harmful effects that particulates have on the body.

    Diet has also been shown to modify epigenetic tags in significant ways. The field of nutriepigenomics explores how food and nutritional supplements and epigenetics work together to influence health and well being. For example, a study found that a high fat, low carbohydrate diet could open up chromatin and improve mental ability via HDAC (histone deacetylase) inhibitors.

    Other studies have found that certain compounds within the foods we consume could protect again cancer by adjusting methyl marks on oncogenes or tumor suppressor genes. Ultimately, an epigenetic diet may guide people toward the optimal food regimen as scientific studies reveal the underlying mechanisms and impact that different foods have on the epigenome and health.

    RNA/PROTEIN

    Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is a polymeric molecule essential in various biological roles in coding, decoding, regulation, and expression of genes. RNA and DNA are nucleic acids, and, along with lipids, proteins and carbohydrates, constitute the four major macromolecules essential for all known forms of life.

    Like DNA, RNA is assembled as a chain of nucleotides, but unlike DNA it is more often found in nature as a single-strand folded onto itself, rather than a paired double-strand. Cellular organisms use messenger RNA (mRNA) to convey genetic information that directs synthesis of specific proteins.

    These protein molecules are the "workhorses" of the cell carrying out all the functions necessary for life. For example, enzymes, including those that metabolize nutrients and synthesize new cellular constituents, as well as DNA polymerases and other enzymes that make copies of DNA during cell division, are all proteins.

    PHENOTYPE

    Your phenotype is a description of your actual physical characteristics. This includes straightforward visible characteristics like your height and eye color, but also your overall health, your disease history, and even your behavior and general disposition. Do you gain weight easily? Are you anxious or calm? Do you like cats? These are all ways in which you present yourself to the world, and as such are considered phenotypes.

    However, not all phenotypes are a direct result of your genotype; chances are that your personal disposition to cats is the result of your life’s experience with pets (epigenetic) rather than a mutation in a hypothetical cat fancier gene.

    Most phenotypes are influenced by both your genotype and by the unique circumstances in which you have lived your life, including everything that has ever happened to you (epigenetic). We often refer to these two inputs as “nature,” the unique genome you carry, and “nurture,” the environment in which you have lived your life.

    HEALTH AND DISEASE

    Your phenotype expresses who YOU are in a multitude of ways and in particular shows your strengths and weaknesses regarding health, mental abilities, and athletic performance to name a few. By incorporating genetics and epigenetic tests and controlling your environment in positive ways your strengths can be expressed more easily and your weaknesses minimized!!

    CONCLUSION

    I have provided an overview of how genetics testing provides new scientific insights into many health issues that have previously not been well understood. An overview of genetics, epigenetic, and human biology has been provided that shows the overall relationships of these topics. Hopefully, the rationale is clear for adding genetic testing into programs that provide protocols for more successful healing regimens.

  • HYDROGEN SUPPLEMENTS – ACTIVE H2 ULTRA and MEGAHYDRATE

    Fred Liers PhD hydrogen supplements Active H2 Ultra MegahydrateSupplemental hydrogen is fast becoming essential in many people's nutritional supplement regimens. Why? Because hydrogen offers significant health benefits, including excellent antioxidant protection, increased energy, faster recovery, and improved well-being. Who doesn't want those benefits?

    My favorite way to take hydrogen is to make hydrogen-infused water, or what I call a hydrogen "fizzy" drink. Two products I like best are Active H2 Ultra tablets and Megahydrate (available in powder and capsules). Active H2 Ultra provides molecular hydrogen (H2) and Megahydrate provides hydride (H-). Both are great standalone formulas, yet work well together as each provides unique means to quench free radicals effectively.

    MAKE "FIZZY" HYDROGEN-INFUSED WATER WITH ACTIVE H2 ULTRA

    Drinking H2-rich water is an easy and effective method for obtaining hydrogen, according to the Molecular Hydrogen Foundation. Making hydrogen-infused water is simple and convenient, as you can drink it at home or while traveling. Effective hydrogen products HPDI carries include Active H2 Ultra tablets, Megahydrate powder, and Megahydrate capsules.

    My favorite hydrogen drink contains both Active H2 Ultra and Megahydrate. I take these products separately at times, but find it easier to take them together—and gain the benefits of both immediately.

    Active H2 Ultra Megahydrate Active H2 Ultra tablets and Megahydrate powder work together for major antioxidant power.

    INGREDIENTS – HYDROGEN-INFUSED WATER

    • 1 Scoop Megahydrate powder (500 mg) or 1 Megahydrate capsule (600 mg)

    • 1 Tablet of Active H2 Ultra

    • 8–16 Ounces of Purified Water

    DIRECTIONS: Put one scoop of Megahydrate powder (or open one capsule) into your container of water. Let sit for about 30–60 seconds. Drop in one Active H2 Ultra tablet. Allow it to effervesce for one minute or until fully dissolved. Drink immediately. For best assimilation, preferably take on an empty stomach at least 10–15 minutes before food. Wait one hour after eating to drink hydrogen-infused water.

    Note: Do not wait long after effervesce stops to drink the water because hydrogen will escape into the air. Alternatively you can cap the container with a lid, and this will allow the hydrogen to last a while longer.

    Molecular hydrogen is sufficiently small to pass through glass, so use a metal container if you plan to cap it. If you drink immediately, then the type container you use won't matter. I personally prefer a glass mason jar. This allows me to see the tablet dissolve, but also means drinking it immediately.

    I make 1–3 hydrogen fizzy drinks daily, first in the morning and then in the afternoon, but almost never in the evening as it can be energizing. I drink hydrogen water on an empty stomach. I gain a significant energy boost, but also other benefits, including improved athletic performance, faster recovery from exercise, and an overall greater sense of well-being.

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

    You will want to continue taking hydrogen supplements regularly because the benefits are so significant, especially over time. Let the power of hydrogen starting working for you.

    Active H2 Ultra is a fast-effervescing tablet.

    MOLECULAR HYDROGEN BACKGROUND

    More than 1,000 scientific studies indicate molecular hydrogen offers therapeutic potential in 170 disease models, and every organ of the body, according to the Molecular Hydrogen Institute.

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

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

    H2 reduces oxidative stress as a selective antioxidant and by maintaining homeostatic levels of glutathione, superoxide dismutase, catalase, etc.

    H2, like other gaseous signaling molecules (i.e. NO, CO, H2S), appears to have cell signal-modulating activity affording it with anti-inflammatory, anti-obesity, and anti-allergy benefits.

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

    THERAPEUTIC USES OF HYDROGEN

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

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

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

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

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

    • Mitochondrial diseases

    • Hemodialysis and ventilation

    • Aging, including cognitive decline

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

    Side effects of cancer therapies, including radiotherapy and chemotherapy

    • Many other benefits

    (Source: Molecular Hydrogen Foundation)

    HOW HYDROGEN WORKS

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

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

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

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

    Notably, two of these three mechanisms of action involve antioxidant activity. Hydrogen is one of the best antioxidants for all the reasons discussed, and we believe it acts synergistically with other antioxidants, including Vitamin C, glutathione, and Nrf2 activators (like those in HPDI's Ultimate Protector).

    MEGAHYDRATE MAKES MOLECULAR HYDROGEN BETTER

    Why add Megahydrate to your hydrogen-infused water? Because Megahydrate provides hydride, the negative anion of hydrogen, or H-. Thus, a tiny scoop of Megahydrate provides vast quantities of electrons available to quench free radicals. Unlike molecular hydrogen, which dissipates quickly into the air, and therefore must be consumed immediately, hydride rich water (about -700 ORP!) may last for three weeks in an active state. That is a good reason to take Megahydrate by itself whether or not you already use it with molecular hydrogen in your hydrogen "fizzy" drink (see recipe above).

    Megahydrate Active H2 Ultra Megahydrate (powder or capsule) provides hydride (H-) for free radical defense.

    The interesting thing about H- is that after it gives up its electron, it becomes simply "H" or atomic hydrogen. It then looks to pair up with another "H" to become H2, which is molecular hydrogen. In this way, Megahydrate not only gives you large quantities of stable H- and potent antioxidant capabilities, but also then creates molecular hydrogen in your body. This means it becomes a different kind of antioxidant, H2, which is therapeutic in itself.

    By adding Megahydrate to your hydrogen-infused water (as described above), you create a unique "double whammy" drink in which you maximize the powers of hydrogen (H2 and H-) to create and maintain good health.

    Note: Megahydrate powder is more cost effective than Megahydrate capsules, which must be opened into the fizzy drink. However, Megahydrate capsules are convenient for traveling and are easy to take by themselves. I keep both available, so I can use either one depending on my daily needs.

    Drinking H2-rich water is an easy, effective method for obtaining hydrogen according to the Molecular Hydrogen Foundation. Drinking hydrogen-infused water is convenient as you can drink it at home or while traveling. Effective hydrogen products HPDI carries include Active H2 Ultra tabletsMegahydrate capsules, and Megahydrate powder.

    As noted, I make 1–3 hydrogen drinks daily using Megahydrate and Active H2 Ultra. I drink them on an empty stomach. I enjoy a significant energy boost, which helps power me through my day. I gain other benefits, including improved athletic performance, noticeably faster recovery from exercise, and an overall greater sense of well-being.

    The nice thing about hydrogen supplements is how flexibly you can use them. While I typically prefer to make hydrogen-infused "fizzy" drinks in water, I will often sip Megahydrate-infused water by itself during the day or even in the evening (as it is less energizing than molecular hydrogen).

    Megahydrate does not immediately lose its potency in water, so it can be casually sipped. Also, if you're traveling or on-the-go, you can simply swallow a Megahydrate capsule by itself. Finally, you can carry Active H2 Ultra tablets with you wherever you go, and add them to water whenever convenient for you.

    Megahydrate Active H2 Ultra Megahydrate and Active H2 Ultra create an ultra-healthy hydrogen 'fizzy' drink.

    TRY HYDROGEN!

    Try hydrogen supplements for yourself. Then consider recommending them to client, patients, friends, and family. Most people welcome the results from hydrogen. This is especially true if they need exceptional free-radical defense — and who doesn't? We can all stand to benefit from the proven health benefits hydrogen uniquely provides.

    After you try hydrogen, you will want to continue taking it. Hydrogen-infused "fizzy" water can become your go-to drink. Remember, hydrogen works best when taken consistently and daily!

  • RESTORE GUT HEALTH FORMULA + VIDEO

    Fred Liers PhD restore liquid mineral supplement gut healthHeard of RESTORE liquid mineral supplement? If not, you're about to discover something important for gut health.

    RESTORE™ is formulated to help restore gut health. It works by strengthening the integrity of tight junctions in your intestinal wall.

    Maintaining tight junctions is important because they protect your body from substances entering the blood stream. Restore also supports the communications systems of the bacteria in your microbiome.

    Tight junctions are natural barriers protecting the lining of your gut barrier, organs such as kidneys and heart, and the blood-brain barrier thereby keeping out unwanted substances. Even as we take in nutrients from the GI tract, the function of tight junctions is maintaining the integrity of the gut wall and other barriers that protect the body.

    These days, our gut membrane has a tough job keeping out unwanted substances. Because tight junctions are weakened by many things, including highly processed foods, especially those containing gluten and gliadin, the herbicide glyphosate (the primary ingredient in RoundUp weedkiller), and other exposures like electromagnetic fields (EMF) from digital devices and Wi-Fi networks.

    As a result of weakened tight junctions, undesirable substances from food proteins, harmful chemicals and other toxins can slip though into our bloodstream. This can lead to a powerful immune response that can weaken immunity and cause significant inflammation. Foreign substances in the bloodstream can also result in extreme food allergies and food sensitivities to various toxins entering the body.

    We live in an age in which our microbiome health is under assault.  Studies show our ancient ancestors had 20,000–30,000 different strains of beneficial bacteria in their GI tracts. Many people today have just 5,000 or less. Why is that?

    There are many reasons for low microbiome diversity. These reasons include antiobiotic use (both from pharmaceuticals and foods), glyphosate (which essentially acts like an antibiotic), processed foods (especially those containing gluten and gliadin), and systemic degradation of the gut environment rendering it less hospitable for maintaining health populations of gut flora.

    These impacts are significant because diversity in your microbiome not only supports gut health, but also appropriate  brain health, immune system health, and overall vitality. Restore acts as a "microbiome fertilizer" helping establish and maintain healthy microbiota.

    In fact, Restore contains important "redox" molecules produced millions of years ago by existing soil bacteria. These molecules are an important part of communications systems within the body between gut bacteria and with the body's mitochondria. These communication systems play an important role in establishing proper homeostasis throughout the body.

    REASONS TO USE RESTORE™

    There are important reasons to try Restore—whether or not you experience significant gut health issues. These reasons include:

    • Maintaining strong tight junctions for mega membrane health, and helping the body restore tight junction integrity

    • Creating an environment in which beneficial bacteria can thrive

    • Boosting microbiome diversity

    • Healing the gut

    • Mitigating the adverse effects substances like antibiotics, gluten/gliadin, glyphosate, and GMOs on microbiome health

    • Supporting immune system function

    • Protecting integrity of blood-brain barrier

    Other benefits include support for respiratory wellness, enhancing mental clarity, and promoting proper homeostasis throughout the body.

    For all these reasons and more, you should consider taking Restore. You can start by taking one teaspoon or less daily, and gradually increasing your dose to one tablespoon or more.Restore for gut health liquid supplement

    I have taken Restore daily for more than two years, and benefit greatly from it. The most noticeable effects are a complete cessation of spring allergies (after two decades of worsening symptoms), greater clarity of thinking, and improved overall well being. I have seen other people get good results with a variety of conditions from dysbiosis to gluten/gliadin sensitivity.

    MORE ABOUT RESTORE™

    You can learn more about Restore on our website. Also, the Restore website offers in-depth information and videos. Here is how the Restore website and Dr. Zach Bush describe the formula:

    Restore is a dietary supplement supplying first line defense against daily exposure to environmental and food-borne factors. It helps create an optimal environment or ecology in the gut membrane for beneficial or "good" bacteria to flourish. Beneficial gut flora protect your immune system and maintain health. Restore is a scientifically proven soil-derived mineral supplement designed to support protection of the intestinal walls.

    Restore protects the entire gastrointestinal (GI) tract against agricultural herbicides, antibiotics, GMOs, gluten, and food-borne toxins. It helps create an environment in which 20,000–30,000 different strains of beneficial gut bacteria can thrive. This is a far different mode of action from probiotics, most of which contain just 3–30 strains of beneficial bacteria.

    Restore helps create a strong immune system along with proper gut function. Microbiome balance and tight junction integrity are known to constitute a significant part of the immune system. They directly affect DNA transcription of cells to promote optimal health and prevent a leaky gut syndrome, thereby improving gut intelligence.

    Seventy percent (70%) of our immune system is found in our gut. We need tens of thousands different strains of good gut bacteria to support a healthy immune system. Clinical experience, in addition to cell culture studies, support the theory that Restore’s proprietary formula creates the optimal environment in the gut to create a tight junction barrier and maintain our health and wellness.

    Restore is a daily liquid supplement designed to support the protection of the entire gastrointestinal (GI) tract against agricultural herbicides, antibiotics, GMOs, gluten and food-borne toxins by helping to create an environment where between 20,000-30,000 different strains of good gut bacteria thrive. Most probiotics on the market contain fewer than 24 different strains of good gut bacteria.

    TRY RESTORE™

    Restore is ideal for individuals suffering from gut health issues. Yet, it is also excellent for supporting and maintaining gut health generally. That is the reason we at HPDI consider Restore important enough to designate as a foundational supplement, one of the top six supplements you need for good health.

    Given the safety and effectiveness of Restore, there is broad applicability for its use. This is especially true because gut and microbiome health are under constant assault. These assaults range from multiple environmental and lifestyle factors—including poor diets high in processed foods, antibiotics in pharmaceuticals and animal foods—to massive glyphosate (herbicide) contamination of foods, soils, air, and water.

    Let Restore be your first line of defense against assaults on your gut health, tight junctions, microbiome diversity, and immune function. As it says on the bottle, "Complete well-being begins in the gut."

  • 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!
