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.

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

INGREDIENTS:

Rejuvenate!™ PLUS contains: organic pea protein, organic rice protein, organic flax seed powder, chlorella (C. pyrenoidosa), rice bran solubles, Earthrise® spirulina (A. platensis), d-ribose, organic alfalfa sprouts powder, sunflower lecithin, organic broccoli sprouts powder, nutritional yeast, inulin (from chicory root), mannitol, xylitol (from organic hardwood), organic cherry flavoring (on organic gum acacia), organic vanilla flavoring (on organic gum acacia), organic beet root juice powder, Vitaveggie®† (from freeze-dried broccoli, broccoli sprouts, tomatoes, spinach, kale, carrots, and brussels sprouts), magnesium malate, l-lysine hydrochloride, magnesium ascorbate, chlorella growth factor (CGF), RNA (from yeast), organic aloe vera (BiAloe® concentrate), organic ginger root powder, digestive multienzyme complex, d-alpha-tocopheryl acetate, organic dulse, inositol, malic acid, choline bitartrate, high-gamma mixed tocopherols, stevia leaf extract, niacinamide (Vit.

MIGHTY MULTI-VITE! MULTIVITAMIN – UPDATE

Dr. Hank Liers, PhD mighty multi vite multivitamin supplementFred Liers PhD Hank Brian mighty multi vite multivitamin

Think you take a complete multivitamin? Well, maybe not. Typical multivitamins simply do not provide enough nutrients for optimal health. Or for that matter, the proper forms and carriers of nutrients to do the job right—the all important task of providing you with essential nutrients for health. Not so easy these days? Well, Hank & Brian’s Mighty Multi-Vite! can help—a lot!

MIGHTY MULTI-VITE! DEFINES A COMPLETE MULTIVITAMIN

The task of providing you with a complete set of nutrients—as easily absorbed forms—is where Hank & Brian’s Mighty Multi-Vite! shines brightly in the world of #multivitamins. Quite simply, Dr. Hank Liers carefully formulated Mighty Multi-Vite! as the most advanced, complete multivitamin available. It uniquely includes a wide range of vitamins, minerals, cofactors, herbs, antioxidants, and Nrf2 activators (nutrients that allow your body to make its own antioxidants). This wide range of nutrients alone puts Mighty Multi-Vite! in a class by itself.

Calling HPDI’s Mighty Multi-Vite! “complete” is an understatement. While other multivitamins may contain more ingredients, Dr. Hank’s goal is not to “stuff” as many ingredients (or amounts) into Mighty Multi-Vite! as possible. That is a “shotgun” approach—Dr. Hank avoids it—that often results in too large capsules, huge tablets (“horse pills”), or eight-per-day dosages that are hard to consume—and even harder to stick with over time. You get the idea.

Instead, Dr. Hank carefully designed Mighty Multi-Vite! to include both a broad range of essential nutrients and abundant amounts of the most important nutrients for health in easily to assimilate forms using multiple carriers that give the body choices. For example, the body requires far smaller amounts of coenzyme B vitamins (which are the  natural forms best utilized by cells) than conventional forms of B vitamins. This allows for more efficient dosing and does not “waste” space in the capsule allowing more room for other nutrients, like antioxidants and Nrf2 activators. In a nutshell, few multivitamins are so well balanced and designed carefully to give the body what it needs for optimal health. You get it all in just four (4) regular size capsules, daily. How easy is that?

As I mentioned, Mighty Multi-Vite! includes highly absorbable forms of nutrients. These include mineral carriers like Krebs Cycle bionutrients—carriers that feed the energy producing system in the body—including malates, ascorbates, aspartates, sebacates, citrates, and glycinates. Thus, we use magnesium malate, and calcium ascorbate and citrate. The whole point is that the body immediately recognizes and utilizes these forms.

In practice, Dr. Hank’s inclusion of the most absorbable forms and carriers means you actually absorb and assimilate more of the ingredients—whether vitamins, minerals, cofactors, antioxidants, herbs, or Nrf2 activators—than you would from the same old conventional forms and carriers (oxides, for example) found in many multivitamins, especially “off-the-shelf” or “one-a-day” type formulas. Many so-called “boutique” formulas use conventional forms and carriers. Who knew!?

To top it off, many advanced ingredients in Mighty Multi-Vite! (like Nrf2 activators) are nowhere to be found in the vast majority of multivitamins. You might not even know to look for them!

However, the biggest benefit of the science behind Mighty Multi-Vite! is how you feel when taking it. I really feel the difference. Your multivitamin should work for you and support your best health. If your multivitamin is not giving you what you need—or you can’t feel the difference it makes in your life—then why take it? Maybe it is better than nothing, but why settle for less when better options are available?

The single biggest reason I am a huge fan of Mighty Multi-Vite! is because I have taken it for more than 20 years. I have gained all the benefits it offers—for thousands of days—year after year. I am more than confident in its superior benefits not just for me, but because I have seen many other people gain benefits, and heard countless positive testimonies from happy customers. I know you can gain major benefits from it, too.

But wait, there’s more! Read the overview (below) for some nitty, gritty details distinguishing Dr. Hank’s design of Mighty Multi-Vite!. These not-so-little details can make all the difference for your good health.Mighty Multi-Vite multivitamin supplement

MIGHTY MULTI-VITE! OVERVIEW

COMPLETE, BALANCED ESSENTIAL NUTRITION – Provides a full spectrum of nutrients exceptionally well balanced for creating and maintaining optimal heatlh. Mighty Multi-Vite! offers all of the most important vitamins along with minerals, cofactors, antioxidants, herbs, and Nrf2 activators.

RAPID, EASY ASSIMILATION – Incorporates the most bioavailable vitamin and mineral carriers most easily recognized and rapidly assimilated by your body. In addition, the formula uses multiple forms of mineral carriers to ensure assimilation. In addition, the capsule form (compared to tablets) speeds uptake because it does not require time for the body to break it down.

ENERGIZING – Includes coenzyme form vitamins and Krebs Cycle bionutrients that work with your body to create super high energy levels. Provides significantly higher levels of B vitamins than most multivitamins (especially coenzyme B vitamins). These vitamins are known for boosting energy, supporting the body during times of stress, and supporting nerve, heart, brain and immune system function.

FEATURES & BENEFITS OF MIGHTY MULTI-VITE! MULTIVITAMIN

• A full-spectrum of B-complex vitamins, most in coenzyme forms, as well as more conventional forms. Includes Vitamin B1 as thiamin HCl, Vitamin B2 as riboflavin and riboflavin-5’-phosphate, Vitamin B3 as niacinamide and niacin, Vitamin B5 as pantothenic acid, Vitamin B6 as pyridoxine HCl and pyridoxal-5’-phosphate, folate as L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate calcium (L-5-MTHF), Vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin, and biotin

• All of the most absorbable and usable forms of the fat-soluble vitamin group, including Vitamin A (as alpha & beta-carotene), Vitamin E (as d-alpha tocopherol succinate), Vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol), and Vitamin K (as phytonadione (K1) and MK-7 (menaquinone-7) (K2))

• A complete and balanced supply of the most abundant carotenoids found in the body, including beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, lycopene and lutein

• A variety of the best-known herbal preparations, including whole grape extract (seeds, pulp, skin), turmeric (95% curcuminoids), broccoli sprouts powder, and octacosanol (from rice bran)

• All of the known essential minerals in forms readily absorbed and recognized by the body including calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, manganese, boron, copper, chromium, molybdenum, vanadium, and selenium

• Mineral carriers such as ascorbates, Krebs cycle bionutrients, and amino acids providing the body with important metabolic substrates and vitamins, including citrate, succinate, malate, glycinate, aspartate, sebacate, and Vitamin C

• Contains a wide range of antioxidants and Nrf2 activators including Buffered Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Carotenoids, NAC, whole grape extract, curcuminoids, and broccoli sprouts

• Includes N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC), an important sulfur-containing amino acid supporting the body’s antioxidant and detoxification systems, and betaine HCl to support digestive processes

• Includes Choline and inositol which play a crucial role in all the cell membranes of the body, in brain function, and in liver function

• Includes Nrf2 transcription factor activators (i.e., Nrf2 activators), which are nutrients that direct cells to produce their own antioxidants, making your body an antioxidant production machine. Most multivitamins contain few, if any Nrf2 activators. Mighty Multi-Vite! is one of the few multivitamins whose design intentionally provides Nrf2 activators.

• Exclusion of the prooxidant minerals of iron and iodine which can lead to excessive free-radical production and PABA that sometimes adversely affects brain function in some individuals. (Note: we sell iodine formulas separately.)

• Capsule form ensures maximum absorption of ingredients

• Four-per-day full dosage allows for partial dosing for children, seniors, and pets

• Vegetarian formula (including capsule) suitable for vegetarians and vegans

• Exclusion of ingredients such as wheat, dairy, corn, soy, gluten, and egg having well-known antigenic properties and that may be associated with allergy or delayed hypersensitivity reactions

• A minimum of excipients, fillers, lubricants, etc. having deleterious effects in some individuals

• NON-GMO (no genetically modified organisms)

CONSIDER MIGHTY MULTI-VITE!

Most people don’t think too hard about their multivitamins. They focus on taking the supplement de jour (whatever supplements make headlines) or continue taking the same one-a-day multivitamin.

That is too bad because a multivitamin truly is the single most important nutritional supplement. We at HPDI place the multivitamin first—above all other supplements—in importance. Our Foundational Supplements system starts with a multivitamin because it is the only formula designed to provide the basic nutrients essential for health. That is, you can add other essential nutrients (like vitamin C or essential fats) to complete your regimen. But the multivitamin remains king (or queen) because it establishes your baseline nutrient intake. That is something is to consider when selecting the multivitamin you will take daily for the rest of your life.

Ask yourself: Is my multivitamin complete, providing all the most important nutrients I need for health? Is it easily absorbed using multiple, readily assimilated forms and usable carriers of those nutrients? Is it proven to work? Is it easy to take? Do I notice the effects?

If you answer “no” to any of these questions, or if you simply never think about it, then consider Hank & Brian’s Mighty Multi-Vite!. You should love your multivitamin because of how it supports your health. We think you will love Mighty Multi-Vite!.

ULTIMATE PROTECTOR+ TRIPLE ACTION NRF2 ANTIOXIDANT SUPPLEMENT – UPDATE

Dr. Hank Liers, PhD ultimate protector+ nrf2 antioxidantFred Liers PhD ultimate protector+ Nrf2 antioxidant formula

There’s a new kind of super-antioxidant formula in town. It will quench your free radicals in ways you never conceived. It’s called Ultimate Protector+. Its benefits are many due to a triple-action design that includes instructing cells to make their own antioxidants, a process known as Nrf2 activation. The benefits range from anti-aging and anti-inflammatory effects to support for immunity, brain function, and cardiovascular health. Your body depends on antioxidants to defend it from oxidative stressors. And Ultimate Protector+ defends you like nothing else can.

Ultimate Protector+ is among the world’s premier Nrf2 antioxidant supplements. It started when Dr. Hank realized that a triple-mode formula could best leverage the antioxidant powers available via Nrf2 activators in supplement form. That is, he could develop an ultra-effective Nrf2 activator-antioxidant formula by combining 1) non-GMO vitamin C, 2) potent exogenous (external) antioxidants from plant substances, and 3) plant-based Nrf2 transcription factor activators for endogenous (internal) antioxidant production within cells.

Dr. Hank designed Ultimate Protector+ to provide the most comprehensive antioxidant protection going beyond any supplement. The proof of his design methodology is the fact that one serving (six small capsules) of Ultimate Protector+ provides nearly 1,000,000 ORAC6.0 units. The ORAC6.0 test from Brunswick Labs measures how effectively an antioxidant can perform against six different free radicals: hydroxyl, peroxyl, peroxynitrite, singlet oxygen, superoxide anion, and hypochlorite (hypchlorous acid).

Ultimate Protector+ nrf2 activator formula

Most antioxidant supplements may effectively quench one or two types of free radicals. What makes Ultimate Protector+ different is its unique capacity to quench all six major free radicals. Ultimate Protector+ provides a significant edge in defending your body against the full spectrum of oxidants encountered in daily life.

The distinctive advantage of balanced free radical defense against a broad spectrum of oxidants distinguishes Ultimate Protector+ as a premier antioxidant and anti-aging supplement. This also makes it a “go-to” formula for supporting strong immunity, mitigating the effects of inflammation, enhancing brain function, boosting cardiovascular health, etc., as well as generally maintaining high antioxidant status in cells.

plant-based antioxidants nrf2 activators ultimate protector+

ULTIMATE PROTECTOR+ TEST RESULTS

Looking at the Brunswick Labs’ ORAC6.0 test results (from August 2019) for Ultimate Protector+, you see various oxidants (hydroxyl radical, peroxyl radical, singlet oxygen, etc.) are quenched at somewhat different levels. What is most important is that all six types are quenched, and that the total level of antioxidant protection—968,237 µmole TE/gram—is extremely high. To get an idea of how high that level of protection is, consider that a typical “good” antioxidant supplement might provide about 7,000–10,000 µmole TE/gram.

Specifically, the test results for Ultimate Protector+ show values of 3,376 µmole TE/gram for peroxyl radicals, 5,569 µmole TE/gram for hydroxyl radicals, 2,758 µmole TE/gram for peroxynitrite radicals, 221,866 µmole TE/gram for superoxide anion radicals, 34,169 µmole TE/gram for singlet oxygen radicals, and 5,005 µmole TE/gram for hypochlorite radicals. The table (below) shows for each free radical type the ORAC6.0 daily values for six capsules of Ultimate Protector+ containing 3.55 grams of the formula.

ORAC6.0 test results

The overall daily ORAC6.0 value for six capsules (3.55 g) is obtained by adding the values for each free radical type. The total of 968,237 units is calculated by multiplying 272,743 units x 3.55 gram serving). To our knowledge there is no other Nrf2 or antioxidant formula that comes close to providing the complete protection of Ultimate Protector+ in terms of breadth of coverage and overall strength.

ULTIMATE PROTECTOR+
PRODUCT INFORMATION

Ultimate Protector+ is a next generation cell protection formula that simultaneously meets the body’s needs for 1) high levels of Vitamin C, 2) full spectrum antioxidants (including polyphenols, flavonoids, anthocyanidins, oligomeric proanthocyanidins, catechins, curcuminoids, ellagic acid, pterostilbene, resveratrol, chlorogenic acid, xanthines, punicalagins, quercetin, zeaxanthin, carotenoids, polysaccharides, quinic acid, and more), and 3) many of the most protective enzyme activators (Nrf2 activators) — in a single product! This potent combination of characteristics distinguishes the formula because no other single formula available today offers such complete protection.

Ultimate Protector+ supplies nutrients that provide anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and pain relieving effects, as well as ultra-high levels of antioxidant protection. Damage to cells caused by free-radicals contributes to many degenerative health conditions and to the aging process. This formula effectively supports the body in combating adverse effects of free-radicals.

MEGAVITAMIN MYTH-BUSTING – ORTHOMOLECULAR MEDICINE NEWS ON VITAMINS

Fred Liers PhD megavitamin myth busting orthomolecular vitamins andrew saul omnsAs the year draws to a close, it is a good time to reflect on the past year, as well as to look forward to the New Year with respect to one’s health goals. This includes assessing your nutritional supplement regimen. There is more confusion about nutritional supplements than ever. With this in mind, we present “Megavitamin Myth-Busting” from Andrew W. Saul, PhD and Helen Saul Case from the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service to clear confusion about vitamins and other nutritional supplements, and set the record straight. Enjoy! ~

MEGAVITAMIN MYTH-BUSTING

Commentary by Andrew W. Saul and Helen Saul Case

(Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, Dec 23, 2019)

People are so confused about endless internet vitamin legends. Now it’s time to be blunt and set the record straight.

The media says that taking vitamins will kill me. Is that so? NO.

 

It’s been said that the FDA does not regulate nutritional supplements. Is that true? NO. “FDA regulates both finished dietary supplement products and dietary ingredients.” [U.S. Food and Drug Administration, http://www.fda.gov/Food/DietarySupplements/ ]

 

I have heard that “vitamin supplements are useless” and that “supplements do not prevent or cure disease, and they do not help you live longer.” Is that accurate? NO.
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/index.shtml

 

I get enough vitamins from my diet. NO, you don’t.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v01n03.shtml

 

Aren’t foods a more economical vitamin source than supplements? NO.
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v09n32.shtml

 

Should I really stop all vitamin supplements for a week (or more) prior to surgery? NO.
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v11n07.shtml

 

Do I need special vitamin preparations for my body to absorb them? NO. With vitamins, there is usually no absorption issue. All animals need and absorb nutrients, including vitamins. If they didn’t, they’d be long extinct. The surface area of your small intestine, if all the nooks and crannies were flatted out, would be half the size of a regulation basketball court. There is ample opportunity for nutrient absorption.

 

Doesn’t taking vitamins just make expensive urine? NO.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v04n21.shtml

 

VITAMIN C

 

Does vitamin C causes kidney stones? NO.
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v09n05.shtml

 

Does vitamin C interfere with chemotherapy? NO, vitamin C actually enhances chemotherapy.
http://www.doctoryourself.com/Cancer_Why_IV_C.html and
http://www.doctoryourself.com/chemo.html

 

I have heard that ascorbic acid is not really vitamin C. Is that true? NO.
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v09n27.shtml and
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v05n10.shtml

 

Will vitamin C from a genetically modified (GMO) source hurt me? NO.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v09n27.shtml

 

Does the acidity of ascorbic acid vitamin C destroy probiotics? NO.
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v09n27.shtml

 

If I take too much vitamin C during pregnancy, will it cause a miscarriage? NO, vitamin C is highly protective of your developing baby.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v10n06.shtml

 

Does taking too much vitamin C during pregnancy causes infantile rebound scurvy? NO.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v14n12.shtml

 

Is liposomal vitamin C as good as intravenous vitamin C? NO.
https://www.youtube.com/embed/04cOSwZ43II?autoplay=1

 

Will I get to much sodium from taking sodium ascorbate vitamin C? NO, says cardiologist Thomas Levy, MD, JD.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v14n12.shtml

 

Does G6PD mean no supplemental vitamin C? NO. The Riordan Clinic has administered 15,000 mg vitamin C by IV to G6PD patients without harm.
http://www.doctoryourself.com/RiordanIVC.pdf

 

But since Linus Pauling died from cancer, didn’t he fail to benefit from all the vitamin C he took? NO.
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v06n24.shtml

 

VITAMIN A

 

Some persons have a genetic trait that makes it more difficult for them to convert dietary carotene into active vitamin A. Does this mean they must take preformed oil retinol A? NO. Even a poor converter can still make sufficient vitamin A from carotene if they eat lots of fruits and vegetables . . . which we should all be doing anyway.

 

Does beta carotene cause cancer? NO. (But cigarettes do.)
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v04n09.shtml and
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v04n23.shtml

 

B VITAMINS

 

Does niacin hurt the liver? NO.
http://www.doctoryourself.com/news/v4n21.html and
http://www.doctoryourself.com/niacin.html

 

Is niacin clinically incompatible for people with methylation issues? NO. Theoretically, perhaps. But Dr. Abram Hoffer, the world’s most experienced niacin physician, has said it is not clinically significant.

 

Aren’t B-vitamins so poorly absorbed that they need to be methylated? NO. Comparing their molecular weights with the simplest of all sugars, we find:

Glucose (C6H12O6) weighs 180 grams/mole
Niacin (C6H5NO2) weighs 123 g/mol
Pyridoxine 169 g/mol
Pantothenic acid 219 g/mol
Biotin 244 g/mol
Thiamin 265 g/mol
Riboflavin 376 g/mol
Folic acid or folate 441 [Methylated may be better. However: 1) See: Bailey LB. Dietary reference intakes for folate: the debut of dietary folate equivalents. Nutr Rev. 1998;56(10):294-299. And 2) The Linus Pauling Institute says: “Unmetabolized folic acid concentrations returned to baseline levels at the end of the study, suggesting that adaptive mechanisms eventually converted folic acid to reduced forms of folate.”
Cobalamin 1,355 g/mol [methylated is probably better in this case]

 

MAGNESIUM

 

I get plenty of magnesium in my diet! NO, you probably don’t.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v13n22.shtml and
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v12n20.shtml

 

VITAMIN E

 

Is vitamin E dangerous? NO. The safety record of all forms of vitamin E is exceptionally good.
http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v07n11.shtml

 

VITAMIN K

 

Do I need to consume vitamin K-2 because K-1 in foods is ineffective? NO. Your body will make the conversion for you. John Cannell, MD, writes that the conversion “occurs through an intermediary molecule, vitamin K3, which is made in the intestine from vitamin K1. [Hirota Y, et al. J Biol Chem. 2013 Sep 30.] “[M]odern humans are deficient in K2 because they do not eat large quantities of vitamin K1 containing foods. If we look at Paleolithic humans, they probably got high amount of vitamin K2 from eating large quantities of kale and spinach-like foods, very high in K1, which then supplied their tissues with all the vitamin K2 they needed. [A]s far as getting enough vitamin K2, the best thing to do is eat your greens.”

VITAMIN D

I drink milk, and I spend time in the sunshine. Don’t I get plenty of vitamin D? NO. If your shadow is longer than you are, you are not making vitamin D from sunlight, says William Grant, PhD. Thus, little vitamin D is made by your body in the six colder months of the year. This is also true in the summer months if only exposed to sun mornings and afternoons.
