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! 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

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 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
