SEVEN WAYS TO MITIGATE EFFECTS OF EMF EXPOSURE

Fred Liers PhD seven ways reduce emf exposureWe are constantly bombarded by different forms of EMF radiation. From cell phones and towers to Wi-Fi networks and wireless devices, EMF exposure is greater than ever—and increasing by the day. Modern technologies give us amazing connectivity and radically change how we live. Yet, little attention is paid to protecting ourselves from the downsides of EMF exposure.

Sources of EMF not only include cell phones, cell phone towers, Wi-Fi routers and and wireless devices, but also smart meters, smart home devices, solar inverters, newer vehicles, and bluetooth (including hands free connected devices). Now 5G and The Internet of Things (IoT) are only increasing our EMF exposures.

While relatively scant attention is given by most governments and regulatory agencies to potentially adverse effects of EMF, the scientific evidence increasingly points to significant adverse effects on biological systems. That is, EMF harms people and living things.

There is a growing body of scientific evidence and research data on the adverse effects of EMF. The evidence points to multiple ways that EMF produces negative effects. These include oxidative effects, changes in blood flow and behavior, interference in calcium channels in cells, weakened immunity, and creating conditions that can lead to cardiovascular events and other significant health issues. The research also explains the subjective effects reported by people—such as memory problems, tinnitus, inability to concentrate, poor sleep, fatigue, irritability and mood effects, pain, etc. Finally, the research points to the longer-term effects of EMF exposure, including cumulative effects of oxidative damage and inflammation, and higher incidence of major health issues.

MITIGATING EFFECTS OF EMF EXPOSURE

A vast amount of scientific information is available explaining just how EMF harms people and how to mitigate EMF. My purpose here is not to review all the data or provide a comprehensive guide to EMF mitigation—for that purpose you can see my reference list below—or simply search trusted sites online.

Today, I provide just seven recommendations you can apply in your life to reduce EMF exposure.

DISTANCE

Give distance between yourself and EMF emitting devices. This is the easiest of all EMF reducing strategies. It is based on the inverse-square law which shows there is an exponential decline in the intensity of exposure with increasing distance. That means just a few inches can make a difference when it comes to exposure. Here are some examples to apply it:

• Don’t hold a cell phone to your head. Instead use the speakerphone, ear buds, or at least hold the phone an inch or two from your head.

• Don’t sleep with your phone under your pillow or near you. Turn it off at night, or at least put it in Airplane mode.

• Keep your router in a room away from where you work, play, or sleep.

• Don’t sleep near smart meters, solar inverters, broadband devices (like network extenders), or even plug-in transformers (like phone chargers).

• Find the nearest cell phone towers to your home (www.antennasearch.com). Cell phone towers 1/3 of a mile or closer are known hazards. Longer distances are better.

TIME

Reduce the amount of time spent exposed to EMF fields. While this may seem tricky in a connected, always-on world, the time rule is similar to the distance rule. Reducing the amount of time spent exposed to EMF fields significantly reduces the overall adverse effects. This is is critical when you realize that in nature, EMF levels are orders of magnitude lower than typical levels of EMF in daily life. Giving body periods of rest and recovery away from EMF–or at lowers levels of EMF–reduces its overall effects.

Here are ways to apply the time rule:

• Reduce time spent on cell phone. Turn it off or put it on Airplane mode when not in use.

• Reduce total time spent using wireless devices of any kind. Turn them off when not in use.

• Turn off your router at night, or at least disable Wi-Fi. This can be done manually or automatically using a plug-in timer.

WIRED CONNECTIONS

Distance and time are the easiest ways to reduce EMF exposure. Using a wired connection is not always easy, but can vastly reduce EMF exposure. Most routers allow for wired (Ethernet) connections, and many routers allow you to turn off Wi-Fi component while using a wired connection.

• Use wired connections (Ethernet) whenever possible

• Adaptors are available to connect Ethernet cables to cell phones, tablets, and other devices

• Shielded Ethernet cables (Cat 7 or higher) are better for EMF protection

• Wired connections significantly reduce EMF exposure. This is especially beneficial for children, who are still developing and more vulnerable to EMF.

SHIELDING AGAINST EMF EXPOSURE

Shielding is the practice of placing layers of EMF blocking material between you and your devices. A wide variety of products are available for this purpose. These include fabrics, paints, hats, clothing, device bags, blankets, router covers, and cases for laptops, tablets, and cell phones.

• Use an anti-radiation case for your cell phone. This can be a phone case like Safesleeve or Defendershield. These types of cases allow you to use your cell phone by using an EMF-blocking material on the front of phone, but allows signal to the back of the phone facing away from you.

• EMF blocking laptop cases allow you to use Wi-Fi on laptops while blocking a lot of signal. Most experts, however, say that you should never use a laptop on your lap (and that the term “laptop” should be replaced).

• EMF blocking hats protect the part of your body (your brain) most sensitive to EMF. They are widely available from many companies, such as Lambs.

• Use EMF blocking fabrics for curtains to blocks EMF coming through windows.

• Use Reflectix insulation in a picture frame to cover the wall opposite your smart meter. This will block EMF from your smart meter from coming into your home.

FILTER DIRTY ELECTRICITY

• Dirty electricity (DE) is comprised of frequencies that deviate from a clean, 60 Hertz sine wave characteristic of ideal AC power (in the US). It is also known as “electromagnetic interference” (EMI)

• Dirty electricity flows through house wiring (AC), but also can flow through the ground and travel on power transmission lines. Electricity used to be required to return to substations via wire, but utilities now routinely send electricity back via the ground, which floods the earth with dirty electricity.

• Dirty electricity is produced by transformers (cell phone towers), inverters (e.g., solar PV systems), and household electronics

• Dirty electricity can be filtered using simple plug-in filters. A typical home requires 3–5 filters per room.

Dirty electricity is a lesser known form of EMF. However, it is pervasive, insidious, and highly impactful for health. Dirty electricity (DE) travels via AC outlets in the home. DE is known as electromagnetic interference (EMI). AC power in the US is 60 Hertz (cycles per second). Dirty electricity is able to contaminate the AC wiring in your home because modern plug-in electronics, cell phone towers, solar systems (PV), inverters, transformers, generators, and smart meters tend to distort the clean 60 Hertz signal.

Dirty electricity was not so much of a problem in the recent past. It was mostly due to high-voltage power lines and electricity returning to a power station via the ground rather than on return power lines. However, whenever AC power is converted to DC power (like on a cell phone tower) the surrounding ground can be flooded with dirty electricity. This electricity can travel miles and find AC wiring. This means, for example, that if your neighbor has a solar system (PV) or a smart meter, your electricity can be dirty, because it can jump onto your wiring. Chances are good your AC electricity is contaminated.

Dirty electricity has many adverse health effects. These are best described by Samuel Milham, MD, MPH in his book Dirty Electricity. It is short and easy reading. A key takeaway is that dirty electricity enters the body (whereas a clean 60 Hz signal does not). After dirty electricity enters the body, it takes the path least resistance which explains why different people develop different health issues. For example, dirty electricity might contribute to diabetes in one person and cardiovascular disease in another person. A second takeaway is that adverse health effects are significantly increased after certain threshold levels of dirty electricity are reached, and the higher the DE levels the greater the risk.

Dirty electricity can be filtered by using low cost plug-in filters in AC outlets. It can be measured using a special plug-in meter. Filters and meters are available from Greenwave and Stetzer. In most cases, relatively high levels of dirty electricity can be filtered using a few filters per room. In cases where levels of DE are extremely high (e.g., living next to a cell phone tower), there are companies that offer specific solutions (such as Satic and ccc) that can be used in combination with basic plug-in dirty electricity filters.

Greenwave dirty electricity filter reduces EMF exposure

Greenwave plug-in filters reduce dirty electricity on household AC wiring.

A typical home has DE readings in the 300–2000+ millivolts (mv) as measured by a plug-in EMI meter (like Greenwave). The goal would be to reduce these readings to 30–50 mv or lower. In my home, I have reduced DE readings from about 2,000 mv down to 15–30 mv.

What is notable about dirty electricity is how common and pervasive.

NUTRITION & SUPPLEMENTS

It is no secret diet and nutrient intake (like vitamins and minerals) are important for health. What is rarely considered is how EMF impacts the body in ways that deplete nutrients, blocks their uptake, or creates a greater need for certain nutrients. These are proven effects suggesting that nutrient intake in critically important for mitigating the effects of EMF.

Facts: 1) EMF adds another of layer of stress on the body (including oxidative stress), 2) We are all exposed at higher levels today (compared even to the recent past), 3) Exposures (acute and chronic) over long time periods tend to compound adverse effects of EMF, 4) Different people are differently affected by EMF, 5) Generally healthy people are better able to combat the effects of EMF, but EMF levels are going up every year, 6) an increasing number of people are classified as electrically hypersensitive (EHS).

Given these facts, it makes the most sense to eat a diet and take supplements that support optimal antioxidant function, reduce inflammation, provide key nutrients (like B vitamins and magnesium) known to support bodily and cellular processes affected by EMF.

I recommend taking a series of foundational supplements to support good general health to help mitigate the effects of EMF. I also recommend taking additional antioxidant supplements. Supplements I suggest

• High potency multivitamin that includes coenzyme B vitamins like Multi Two Caps or Mighty Multi-Vite!

• Antioxidant/Vitamin C formula likes PRO-C™ and Ultimate Protector+ which bring the power of Nrf2 activation to EMF protection

• Essential Fatty Acids (like Essential Fats Plus E)

• Superfood (like Rejuvenate! PLUS) supports nutrition, detoxification, and cellular health via a combination of greens (chlorella, spirulina), dietary nucleic acids, and supporting nutrients

• Magnesium (like Myo-Mag) critically important for brain, muscle, and mitochondrial function, and combats the effects of EMF on calcium channels

• Vitamin D3 supplement like Vitamin D3 Plus. Vitamin D3 is essential for immunity and overall health.

Beyond these essential nutrients, I also consider these specific supplements to be helpful:

• Carbon60 (like Thrive Whole Body Health) which is a super-antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory properties

pH Adjust alkalinizing formula which helps keep the body in a slightly alkaline state and buffers acids

• Mushroom extract formula like Immune-Assist™ Critical Care Formula

These are a few suggestions for improving your nutrient intake with an eye toward helping the body mitigate the effects of EMF. There are many other possible dietary and supplements that can help. However, just being consistent with a multivitamin, antioxidant/vitamin C formula, and essential fats can go a long way toward protecting your body from EMF.

You can find many of these recommended supplements from Health Products Distributors, Inc. at IntegratedHealth.com

ACTIVE MEASURES TO COUNTERACT EMF EXPOSURE

The EMF reducing strategies above are all considered “passive” measures. Another category of protection is known as “active” measures. Active measures for EMF mitigation include devices that emit beneficial frequencies that can counteract adverse effects of EMF. Devices that use active measures are evolving rapidly.  They hold out great hope for protection, especially because some can confer protection on large areas. This means they can have the potential to protect homes, schools, neighborhoods, and public spaces, as well as protect individuals.

One category of active devices are Schumann resonance generators. Schumann resonances are earth frequencies, which are about 7.8s Hz (fundamental) and their harmonic frequencies. Schumann resonances are the natural frequencies of the earth. They are created by the interaction of lighting strikes that hit the surface of the earth hundreds of times per second.

Why are Schumann resonances important? Humans (and all life on earth) evolved with the frequency of the earth. It is beneficial for us. It is so important that NASA includes Schumann resonance generators on space vehicles and on the International Space Station.

Increased EMF in our environment disrupts our connection to the earth frequencies. One solution is “grounding” which has proven to be helpful for people. The simplest way to ground is to remove your shoes and stand on natural surfaces like grass, dirt, or sand. However, if you attempt to ground in an area filled with dirty electricity (see above) which is now commonplace, instead of grounding you become a receiver of dirty electricity. That will have the opposite effect of grounding—and be harmful.

There are various types of Schumann resonance generators. Some generate a single frequency (7.83 Hz). Others generate multiple earth frequencies (harmonics). One well recommended brand of resonance generator is Blushield. Blushield makes devices for your home, car, and portable units that many people find to be effective in mitigating EMF exposure. Blushield posts the results of several of its scientific studies showing improved markers of health. Many users (including me) report beneficial effects, such as improved sleep, increased energy, better mental function, and an overall sense of well-being.

Schumann resonance generators are just one form of active device counteracting the effects of EMF. There are many active devices available for EMF mitigation, including PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field) devices. Many others will be available in coming years. Do your own research and try out different products to see if they suit your needs. An overall strategy for an EMF-resistant lifestyle should not preclude using active measures.

REDUCING YOUR EMF EXPOSURE ONE STEP AT A TIME

I have touched on seven ways to mitigate EMF exposure. There is no single best way to mitigate EMF for all people. However, using a combination of increased distance, reduced time, wired connectivity, shielding, nutrition & supplements, and active measures can go a long way towards mitigating the effects of the EMF to which we are all exposed. At the least, these seven methods can help you lessen adverse effects, feel better, and support a healthy life. At best, they can be part of a long term strategy for maintaining good health by reducing EMF exposure and helping mitigate the very real adverse effects of EMF exposure.

New Product! A Letter to Our Customers Regarding CARBON60

Dr. Hank Liers, PhD new hemp CBD website integratedheathhempDear Friends,

For several years I’ve been examining the emerging research concerning what may be the world’s most powerful known antioxidant: carbon60. Carbon60 was discovered in 1985, and the three men who discovered it were awarded the Nobel Prize because it was the first new form of carbon to be discovered in roughly 300 years. Initially, it was thought that carbon60 could be used as a therapeutic agent, but this proved difficult because carbon60 is hydrophobic, meaning it repels water, so it was difficult to get it into the body.

Over the next few decades, scientists found that you could actually bind carbon60 to lipids. Once combined with a lipid or fat, the carbon60 molecule is able to penetrate the cell membrane. Research has shown that once inside the cell, carbon60 works as a major antioxidant, decreasing toxins, scar tissue, and inflammation. The net effect is a boost in energy, reduced joint pain, greater mobility, improved immunity and digestion, and overall better health.

About four years ago I began researching products containing carbon60 bound to oils such as extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil. I discovered the healing properties to be so powerful that I started taking them myself and provided them to a select group of customers.

Recently I came across the carbon60 products developed by a company called C360 Health. Their research and patents set them apart, so I chose C360 Health as our provider of carbon60 products such as Thrive Whole Body Health and Thrive Whole Pet Health. Both products combine carbon60 with pure organic extra virgin olive oil and include natural anti-inflammatory ingredients. Thrive Whole Body Health is an especially strong antioxidant supplement that is also highly effective at helping to reduce inflammation and toxicity throughout the body.

Carbon60 demonstrates the strongest antioxidant currently known (270 times stronger than vitamin C) and enhances cell function by negating oxidative stressors (free radicals). Potent, natural, anti-inflammatory ingredients such as L-carmosine, Serratiopeptidase, and CoQ10 have been added in Thrive Whole Body Health to dramatically reduce inflammation throughout the body. This reduction in inflammation improves cognitive focus, gut health, joint flexibility, mobility and reduces pain. It also detoxifies the body and supports the immune system, bringing the body back to balance. Most people and animals (dogs, cats, & horses) exhibit marked improvement within 2-4 weeks, however many customers have reported more immediate results.

Thrive Carbon60 (c60)

Benefits include: 1) Increases vitality, energy, and stamina, 2) Provides powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and detoxification properties, 3) Balances and supports a healthy immune system, 4) Helps address symptoms of both acute and chronic inflammation, and 5) Helps oxygenate the tissues for faster muscle recovery and 6) Helps rebuild soft tissue and reduces scar tissue.

Over the next few months I’ll be sharing more about the science behind carbon60 and the potential for these products to  pave the way to a healthier society. For now, you can find Thrive Whole Body Health and Thrive Whole Pet Health on our website. If you want to try an antioxidant / anti-inflammatory product that sits at the very edge of emerging science, carbon60 is for you, and Thrive Whole Body Health and Thrive Whole Pet Health are the very best on the market.

Yours in Health,

REJUVENATE! PLUS – FOUNDATIONAL SUPPLEMENT

Dr. Hank Liers, PhD rejuvenate plus superfoodFred Liers PhD rejuvenate plus superfood

The HPDI system of foundational supplements includes a multivitamin, antioxidant/vitamin C formula, essential fats, and Rejuvenate! superfoods. While multivitamins, antioxidants, and essential fats are well recognized as important to health, the benefits provided by Rejuvenate superfoods are less well known. However, they are no less important to health.

Why do we incorporate Rejuvenate! superfoods—Rejuvenate! PLUS and Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs—in the foundational supplements system?

The short answer is that Rejuvenate! superfoods provide the body with the dietary nucleic acids RNA and DNA. Dietary nucleic acids are basic components of cells that offer significant nutritional benefits that make them worthy of inclusion in everyone’s nutrition program.

We have written many articles on dietary nucleic acids for nutrition. Please see: Dietary Nucleic Acids—Dr. Benjamin S. Frank, Part 1 and Part 2. We have also written extensively about the role of dietary nucleic acids in the development of the Rejuvenate! PLUS and Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs. Please see: Rejuvenate! Plus Superfood—New Improved Formula (and many other articles).

We will focus today on some details regarding Rejuvenate! PLUS and how the nucleic acids it provides benefit health.

rejuvenate superfood

REJUVENATE! PLUS IS A UNIQUE, HIGH-RNA SUPERFOOD

Rejuvenate! Plus is one of the two high-RNA superfoods Dr. Hank formulated to provide therapeutic levels of dietary nucleic acids. In this case, that means about 355 mg of nucleic acids per serving which is a therapeutic amount. The fact that Rejuvenate! Plus provides such high levels of dietary nucleic acids makes it uniquely healthy.

It was Benjamin S. Frank, MD, PhD who pioneered the discovery of the benefits of dietary nucleic acids in the 1960s and 1970s. He performed various dietary studies on humans and animals using various intakes of 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), we decided to formulate a line of superfoods based on the idea of providing high levels of dietary nucleic acids for optimal health. That was almost 15 years ago.

Rejuvenate! Original Greens launched in 2007. Rejuvenate! Plus came two years later in 2009. Then Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs in 2010. Rejuvenate! Original was discontinued because Rejuvenate Plus and Berries & Herbs have the most customer demand. 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 unique? A single serving provides therapeutic levels (355+ 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: Benjamins S. Frank, Nucleic Acid Nutrition and Therapy)

Nucleic acids perform many important functions in the body.  Getting sufficient amounts in the your diet is very important, just as Dr. Benjamin S. Frank asserts. That can be difficult since historically they were obtained from fish and organ meats—foods that people today, for a variety of reasons, may not consume in sufficient amounts to obtain therapeutic levels of nucleic acids. These reasons may include issues of taste, popularity of vegetarian foods, concern about heavy metals or radiation, or lack of availability.

Rejuvenate! Plus helps take the guesswork from obtaining essential dietary nucleic acids by providing a vegetarian, gluten free, non-GMO source of dietary RNA—along with protein, vitamins, minerals, cofactors, and other important nutrients. All these benefits in a tasty, easy-to-use powder that stays fresh for a long time, travels well, and can be taken in a variety of ways from smoothies and blender drinks, and even tasted good in plain water.

REJUVENATE! PLUS

Rejuvenate! Plus remains the most popular and best-selling of all HPDI Rejuvenate superfoods. It provide therapeutic levels (at least 355 mg) of dietary nucleic acids (RNA, DNA), greens (chlorella and spirulina) as in the lighter, sweet green formula that is  effective for detoxification, and is powerfully energizing and cleansing. Rejuvenate! Plus plays a double role as a foundational supplement in that it contains a complete built-in multivitamin sub-formula.

Rejuvenate! PLUS features (per serving):

1) 1,900 mg spirulina and 2,000 mg of chlorella (3,900 mg total green microalgae)

2) 13.9 grams of high-quality vegetarian protein

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) Extremely smooth texture, and delicious taste

FOUR BENEFITS OF PH ADJUST ALKALINIZING FORMULA

Fred Liers PhD ph adjust alkalining formulapH ADJUST Alkalinizing Formula is one of the few products from any company I take daily. I have taken it every day for at least three years. My pH balance is better than ever.

pH Adjust an alkalinizing product formulated to rapidly alkalinize and buffer acidity in the body. pH Adjust is a powder product formulated by my father (Dr. Hank Liers) using just four natural ingredients: potassium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate, potassium glycinate, and sodium bicarbonate.

Adding pH Adjust to water is one of the fastest ways of creating alkaline water that also provides healthy minerals. It mixes well in water, juices, tea, coffee, or in foods.

Modern diets and lifestyles tend to produce acidic conditions (acidosis) in the body. Diets too low in fruits and vegetables, and too high in meats and carbohydrates result in pH levels lower than recommended for good health. A blood pH level of lower than 7.35 is considered to be acidic, according to the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC). Ideally, you should be slightly alkaline with a pH of about 7.35–7.45.

pH Adjust provides four main benefits: 1) ALKALINIZE, 2) BUFFER, 3) REMINERALIZE, 4) REPLENISH BICARBONATE RESERVES

Many alkalinizing supplements alkalinize effectively, but few offer all the additional benefits of buffering, remineralization, and support for bicarbonate reserves.

FOUR BENEFITS OF pH ADJUST ALKALINIZING FORMULA

We will discuss the four main benefits of pH ADJUST in a bit more detail:

• ALKALINIZE

• BUFFER

• REMINERALIZE

• REPLENISH BICARBONATE RESERVES

1. ALKALINIZE: The main benefit of pH Adjust is its ability to rapidly increase pH levels in the body. pH Adjust will boost your pH levels within a short period of time—usually less than 30 minutes, and sometimes much faster. This is testable using pH paper, which HPDI recommends using as a means of measuring salivary or urinary pH.

2. BUFFER: Increasing your pH levels is good. But not to the point of alkalosis—that is, going too far the other way—creating conditions that are too alkaline. The wonderful thing about pH Adjust is that is carefully designed NOT to push the body into extreme alkalinity, or alkalosis.

Instead, pH Adjust tends to bring the body to a pH of about 7.4. This is true whether the body is imbalanced toward the acidic or the alkaline side of the pH scale. pH Adjust is all about pH balance. It helps “adjust” pH levels toward normal.

3. REMINERALIZE: As mentioned above, the body uses minerals to alkalinize the body, including the blood. When acidic conditions prevail, the body may rob bones of minerals important for health, as a means of buffering the acidity to maintain optimal pH levels (7.35–7.45). When this happens, bones, joints, and connective tissues may suffer losses of the minerals from which they are composed. This says nothing of the loss of minerals used by the body for critical everyday purposes, like enzyme reactions, muscle activity, or brain function. pH Adjust helps remineralize the body.

4. REPLENISH BICARBONATE RESERVES: Bicarbonate or alkaline reserves are maintained by the kidneys. The body actually produces bicarbonates for the purpose of maintaining normal pH levels (7.35–7.45) and kidneys control the release of bicarbonate ions. There are also bicarbonate reserves in the bloodstream that the body uses for neutralizing acids.

Bicarbonate reserves decline with age, and there is an increased tendency toward acidic conditions in aging, as well. Therefore, it can be seen that maintaining adequate or optimal bicarbonate reserves can be important for acid-alkaline balance throughout life.ph adjust alkalinizing formula

FACTS-AT-A-GLANCE

pH Adjust is a water-soluble powder supplement that balances pH levels, as well as supports and maintains alkaline conditions. Because pH Adjust alkalinizes the body, it can help counteract overly acidic conditions (acidosis), including those in the digestive tract, blood, kidneys, and other organ systems. pH Adjust provides a simple, powerful means for achieving healthy acid-base balance in the body.

  • Alkalinize with Potassium and Sodium Bicarbonate and Magnesium Carbonate
  • Acts Rapidly to Balance pH Levels; Helps Maintain a Healthy pH of 7.35–7.45
  • Mixes Well in Water, Juices or Other Drinks, and Foods
  • Tastes Good; Easy-to-Use Powder; 250 Servings per Container
  • Gluten-Free, Non-GMO, Vegan/Vegetarian; No Artificial Ingredients; 250 Grams

pH Adjust mixes well in water, coffee, tea, juice, or any healthy beverage.

pH Adjust Alkalinizing Formula contains only potassium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate, potassium glycinate, and sodium bicarbonate. It has no additional fillers. It is made in the USA (from domestic and imported source materials all of which are USP (United States Pharmacoepia) grade.

pH ADJUST  BALANCES pH LEVELS

The main thing to remember is that keeping pH levels in the range of 7.34–7.45 supports an alkaline state in the body and prevents over-acidification. It is normal over the course of a day for pH levels to fluctuate (e.g., after meals), but most important is giving your body the foods and supplements that will help preserve a state of alkalinity.

Diet should your first line of defense. An adequate and steady dietary intake of fruits, vegetables, and purified water is vital to maintaining alkalinity. Unfortunately, this may not always be easy for everyone. As many studies show, average daily intake of fruits and vegetables is far lower than recommended for most people.

The processed food diets with a high protein and low vegetable content consumed by many people in the US and elsewhere often produce conditions in the body of acidity. This in turn leads to decreased oxygenation of cells and encourages a greater amount of anaerobic processes in metabolism. In addition, when the body is acidic calcium can be taken from bones and teeth in order to balance the acidity. This can lead to leaching of minerals from teeth and poor healing of bone fractures, for example.

Whether or not you fall into the category of consuming fewer than the recommended fruits and vegetables daily, you can still rely on a well-designed alkalinizing supplement like pH Adjust. pH Adjust contains only USP-grade (United States Pharmacoepia) ingredients. It is extremely easy to take (just mix with water or another suitable liquid, like coffee or tea), mix, and drink. It mixes easily in water with perhaps a few undissolved solids at the bottom of your cup. You can drink these, too.

Taking pH Adjust Alkalinizing Formula—and keeping a bottle of it ready for use—is an easy way of ensuring you maintain a pH level of about 7.4–7.6. This is especially true today when diet and lifestyle factors—including travel, eating out, insufficient fruit and vegetable intake, and the prevalence of acidifying foods like carbohydrates, sugars, and alcohol—don’t always predispose people to being alkaline, even most of the time.

As noted, your body strives to maintain a blood pH of 7.4 (slight alkalinity) at all costs. This means that when an individual—whether due to diet or lifestyle—falls into an acidic state, their body will rob minerals from bones in order to buffer acids to bring pH levels back to normal. This is where a formula like pH Adjust comes in handy, as it can help reduce stress on the body by providing the alkalinizing substances and minerals to maintain slight alkalinity.

A NOTE ON ALKALINE WATER

Alkaline water is big business. You see it in most grocery stores in the bottled water section and many companies costly sell home water alkalinizer units. Alkaline water may be worth of cost for many people because of the many benefits it provides. For example, alkaline water offers proven benefits for people with high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, and other issues.

A recent study found a significant difference in whole blood viscosity after consuming high-pH water compared to regular water after a strenuous workout. Viscosity is the direct measurement of how efficiently blood flows through the vessels, and it can increase oxygen delivery throughout out the body.

Additional benefits of alkaline water may include:

• Immune system support
• Anti-aging properties (liquid antioxidants absorb more quickly)
• Superior hydration
• weight loss
• Better sleep and reduced symptoms for those suffering from RLS (restless leg syndrome)

But you don’t need to purchase expensive waters to get these effects. In fact, alkalinizing water has never been easier, and you can do a better job of it on your own.

Adding pH Adjust to water is one of the fastest ways of creating alkaline water that also provides healthy minerals. It’s also far more economical! pH Adjust mixes well in water, juices, tea, coffee, or in foods. Many alkalinizing supplements alkalinize effectively, but pH Adjust provides the additional benefits of buffering, remineralization, and support for bicarbonate reserves.

pH Adjust is more cost effective than buying alkaline water—and provides additional benefits.

HOW TO USE

As a dietary supplement, take 1 gm (about 1/2 tsp) of pH Adjust in 4–8 ounces of purified water preferably away from food, or as directed by a health care professional.  For extremely acidic conditions, try 4–10 doses per day, depending on acidity level. Use pH paper to ensure pH levels remain balanced.

TESTING pH LEVELS: The best way to test pH levels is to use litmus paper, which HPDI offers in rolls (Hydrion brand) for this purpose. You can test salivary or urinary pH. In order to test salivary pH, simply use a small strip of pH paper to dip into a small amount of saliva. Advantages of pH paper include rapid results, ease of use, and cost effectiveness.

TIPS:

• Try taking pH Adjust away from food first thing in the morning and wait at least 20 minutes before eating. You can take it at other times of the day 30 minutes before or 30 minutes after eating.

• Measure your salivary or urine pH first thing in the morning in order to determine the pH status of your system. Most people have an acid pH (less than 7.0). As you start to take pH Adjust you may see the pH of your urine increase. You can slowly increase your dose of pH ADJUST until your morning saliva or urine pH is in the range of pH 7.0–7.5.

IMMUNE CHARGE+ SHOT SUPER IMMUNITY FORMULA

Dr. Hank Liers, PhD immune charge+ liposomal shot formula

Recently our friends at Quicksilver Scientific introduced a therapeutic “shot” formula called IMMUNE CHARGE+™. This unique product takes immune support to the next level. It is a potent, high-dose liposomal blend of foundational vitamins C, A, D, E, K1, K2, and Haschberg European black elderberry — all delivered in a single 12 ml (0.4 ounce) shot that supports your body’s first-line defenses against unexpected health challenges.

I am highly impressed with IMMUNE CHARGE+ shot formula. Most people, including myself, feel its effects almost instantly after taking a shot and holding it for 30 seconds in the mouth before swallowing it. This is due to the 1) amazing properties of liposomal delivery and 2) therapeutic levels of key ingredients.

If you’re looking for an immune boost that will take you through your day, I can’t think of a better product. Even if you’re already supporting yourself with supplements, I recommend IMMUNE CHARGE+ for those times when you need an extra boost to your immune system.

IMMUNE CHARGE+ supports respiratory health and function, powers healthy inflammatory response to unwanted invaders, and has unsurpassed bioavailability of both premium elderberry (without the sugar load in typical extract) and known immune-support vitamins.

immune charge+ shot liposomal formula

BENEFITS & APPLICATIONS OF IMMUNE CHARGE+ SHOT

IMMUNE CHARGE+ is an intentional mix of six bioavailable vitamins that work synergistically to promote respiratory strength, cellular integrity, and year-round resiliency. Combined with Haschberg European elderberry, known for its immune system benefits — finally in a form your body can use — the result is a powerful liposomal “shot” for immune defenses.

• Activates a robust immune response
• Boosts white blood cell production
• Protects against respiratory pathogens
• Enhances barrier integrity of lung, gut and skin epithelial cells
• Supports cellular integrity
• Quenches excessive pathogen induced inflammation
• Optimizes cellular redox state to enhance defense against pathogens
• Reduces cold duration and symptoms

One shot of IMMUNE CHARGE+ contains: Liposomal Vitamins C (2,000 mg), Vitamin D3 (10,000 IU), Vitamin A (7,500 mcg; 25,000 IU as palmitate), Vitamin E (40 mg Delta Gold Tocotrienols), Vitamins K1 & K2 (1,050 mcg), and Haschberg Elderberry Extract (200 mg) (ElderCraft®)†. Other ingredients include: water, glycerin, ethanol, phospholipids (from sunflower lecithin), Vitamin E (as tocofersolan), citric acid, and natural citrus oils).

IMMUNE CHARGE+ SHOT SUPERCHARGES IMMUNITY

IMMUNE CHARGE+ supercharges the immune system.  It is in a class by itself when compared with other immune support formulas—offering rapid liposomal delivery—and thereby unparalleled bioavailability of its immune-bolstering ingredients. In addition to kicking off a robust immune response and up-regulating white blood cell production, Immune Charge+ formula protects cells from pathogen-induced harm and attenuates excessive inflammation.

Health Products Distributors, Inc. normally sells IMMUNE CHARGE+ in cases of 12 shots, but for a limited time we are selling it in smaller amounts (as little as one bottle) so customers like you can experience these powerful effects! Order a bottle or two (or more), and see how effectively it works for you.

IMMUNE CHARGE+ SHOT INGREDIENTS

VITAMIN C

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) offers multifaceted support to the immune system, supporting cellular integrity, antioxidant status, and respiratory function during viral infection.

SUPPORT BARRIER INTEGRITY
The epithelial cells of the skin, lungs, and gastrointestinal tract serve as a first-line of defense against microbial invaders, including viruses responsible for respiratory infections such as colds and the flu. Vitamin C supports epithelial barrier integrity, enhancing the function of these fundamental defense systems.

ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTIES
Vitamin C is a potent reducing agent, meaning it readily donates electrons to electron-deficient recipient molecules (also referred to as free radicals), stabilizing their biochemical structure and inhibiting a chain reaction of oxidative stress. Vitamin C’s ability to terminate these harmful chain reactions makes it one of the body’s most crucial antioxidants. In fact, vitamin C is the body’s primary non-enzymatic, water- soluble antioxidant in blood plasma and tissues. The potent antioxidant properties of vitamin C make it a valuable ally for optimal immune function.

Bacterial and viral infections trigger the production of free radicals by immune cells. While these free radicals have an essential purpose — to activate the innate immune response and directly destroy invading pathogens such as RNA viruses — they also have the unintended consequence of damaging our own cells and organs, such as the lungs.Vitamin C attenuates pathogen-induced free radical damage, protecting cells from harm while the immune system is hard at work eradicating infection.

Vitamin C also boosts the activity of other antioxidants vital to the immune system. It recycles the fat-soluble antioxidant Vitamin E and increases endogenous levels of glutathione, the body’s premier antioxidant that also fine-tunes the innate immune response to viral infections.

Respiratory Health
Vitamin C also protects the lungs during severe respiratory infections. Vitamin C increases the resistance of chicken tracheal cells to infection with the avian coronavirus. It also shortens the duration of convalescence from bacterial pneumonia, a common consequence of severe viral respiratory infections.

Inhibits Virus-Induced Inflammation
Viruses activate the NLRP3 inflammasome, a multiprotein complex that plays a crucial role in innate immunity and the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Excessive NLRP3 activation contributes to a phenomenon called a “cytokine storm,” an overproduction of immune cells and their activating products, cytokines. Cytokine storms occur in the end stages of severe infections, causing symptoms such as acute lung inflammation and fluid buildup in the lungs. The cytokine storm can thus severely sicken, and sometimes kill, patients. Attenuation of NLRP3 inflammasome activity may inhibit excessive inflammation in viral infections. Vitamin C inhibits the NLRP3 inflammasome and may thus help inhibit virus-induced inflammation.

Emerging research suggests that intravenous Vitamin C is useful for the treatment of severe viral infections. Unfortunately, vitamin C IVs may not be accessible to many infected patients. Liposomal vitamin C has been found to offer a greater degree of bioavailability as intravenous (IV) vitamin C in a more convenient and less invasive delivery system.

Antiviral Immune Response
Finally, vitamin C is an essential factor in the antiviral immune response to viral respiratory infections, such as influenza H3N1, through increased production of interferon-α/β. It also stimulates phagocytosis, neutrophil chemotaxis, and T-cell development and maturation, crucial processes for fighting pathogenic bacteria and viruses.

VITAMIN A

Vitamin A maintains epithelial barriers in the human body, including the epithelial lining of the lungs and the gut mucosa, where a significant portion of the immune system resides. Vitamin A deficiency compromises immunity in the lungs, rendering them more susceptible to respiratory infections. Vitamin A deficiency also impairs the immune response to intranasal vaccination for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), a human virus that causes respiratory infections, thus suggesting that this nutrient is crucial for the development of the host immune response to envelope viruses. Altered Vitamin A metabolism is also suspected to play a role in the pathogenesis of influenza.

Conversely, Vitamin A sufficiency, and supplementation reduce susceptibility and mortality in numerous preclinical and clinical models of viral infection. In preclinical research, animals fed Vitamin A-deficient diets suffer from more severe coronavirus infections than those fed vitamin A-sufficient diets. High-dose supplemental vitamin A also enhances the immunoglobulin response to influenza A virus.

Finally, Vitamin A supports immune homeostasis by activating immune cells when they are needed to combat infectious threats while attenuating excessive inflammation.

VITAMIN D

Vitamin D has pleiotropic benefits for immunity. Vitamin D receptors (VDR) are present on most immune cells, indicating their indispensability as components of the immune system.24 Vitamin D deficiency has repeatedly been independently associated with an increased risk of viral infections.

Vitamin D modulates both the innate and adaptive immune responses to respiratory viruses. In the presence of viral infection, lung epithelial cells convert inactive vitamin D into the active form, increasing the expression of a peptide called cathelicidin, which has antiviral effects. Vitamin D also modulates the immune response to respiratory viruses and protects the lungs from damage caused by pro-inflammatory LPS.

VITAMIN E

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant that protects the polyunsaturated fatty acids in cell membranes from oxidative damage, which can be triggered by microbial infections. It increases white blood cell proliferation, immunoglobulin levels, natural killer cell activity, and antibody activity, thus supporting broad-spectrum immune function. In our formula, we use a special form of Vtamin E called DeltaGOLD® tocotrienols, which offer fifty times the antioxidant activity of tocopherols, the form of Vitamin E used in most competitors supplements.

VITAMINS K1 AND K2

Vitamins K1 and K1 are fat-soluble vitamins that work in synergy with Vitamins A, D, and E to support healthy immune function. Vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) has anti-inflammatory properties through inhibition of the NF-κB pathway. Vitamin K2 modulates the immune system, decreasing immune reactivity and helping to manage the inflammatory response.

ELDERBERRY

Elderberry is a small dark purple berry that has been used for centuries in traditional herbalism as an aid to the immune system. In this formula, we use Haschberg variety European black elderberry, known for its high potency in anthocyanin flavonoids.

Modern herbalists know that elderberry’s high-concentration anthocyanin flavonoids have vast potential to kickstart immunity, especially upper respiratory function. In this one-of-a-kind, highly bioavailable formulation, we’ve combined it with proven immunity supporting Vitamins A and C — without the added sugar normally found in elderberry products.

When unwanted invaders irritate the immune system and turn up inflammation, other star performers Vitamins A and D work with elderberry to strengthen and fortify your body by helping to balance inflammatory and immune responses. Highly bioavailable Vitamin E kicks in with 50 times the antioxidant activity of typical tocopherols, alongside Vitamins K1 and K2, which help manage the body’s positive inflammatory response.

ANTIVIRAL AND ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY

Elderberry has direct antiviral activities, demonstrating mild inhibitory effect at the early stage of viral infection and a considerably stronger response in the later stages of infection.Elderberry exerts antiviral effects by blocking the function of hemagglutinin (HA) glycoproteins present on the surface of viruses, such as the influenza virus and coronaviruses. When the binding of these spikes to host cells is inhibited, viruses cannot enter the host cell to replicate and cause infection. Elderberry also binds to neuraminidase (NA), an enzyme necessary for viral replication, as indicated by mass spectrometry and molecular docking studies.

The ability of Elderberry to target viruses through multiple pathways may make it unlikely to trigger antiviral resistance, a common problem with antiviral pharmaceutical drugs. Given these findings, it is no surprise that a meta-analysis of RCTs found elderberry supplementation effective for the treatment of upper respiratory symptoms, which are frequently caused by viruses. In fact, one study found that overseas travelers using elderberry for 10 days before traveling and up to five days after arriving experienced a two-day shorter duration of the cold (on average), along with noticing a reduction in symptom severity.

Elderberry’s antimicrobial activity is not limited to its effects on viruses. It also inhibits the growth of clinically relevant bacteria that can cause infections, such as pneumonia that are secondary to infection with a respiratory virus.

IMMUNOMODULATORY PROPERTIES

Elderberry is an immune modulator, enabling a robust immune response while inhibiting excessive inflammation. Elderberry also coordinates a more efficient immune response by mobilizing antiviral innate immune defenses, including the release of the cytokines IL-6 and IL-8. The antioxidant anthocyanins found in elderberry may quench excessive inflammation triggered by a viral infection and promote the growth of beneficial gut bacteria, many of which have immune-enhancing properties.

BENEFICIALLY ALTERS CELLULAR REDOX STATE

Finally, Elderberry also fine-tunes the cellular redox state, or the balance between reactive oxygen species (ROS), reactive nitrogen species (RNS), and their scavenging by antioxidant compounds. The cellular redox state plays a critical role in the immune defense against viral invaders. When ROS and RNS accumulate in viral infections and antioxidant systems are depleted, a severe inflammatory response called a “cytokine storm” can occur. The cytokine storm incites a massive release of inflammatory mediators called cytokines that damage vital tissues such as the heart and lungs. Elderberry phytochemicals called anthocyanins boost the cellular redox potential, enhancing cellular resilience against pathogens.
