The natural, raw chlorella (non-GMO and pesticide-free) in is cultivated in open freshwater ponds where it receives exposure to sunlight during all stages of growth. The ideal conditions of steady sunshine and warm temperatures (averaging 82 degrees) produce a very high-quality, dark green chlorella having exceptional nutritional value, a slightly fragrant aroma, and a mild taste.
(Chlorella pyrenoidosa) is a unicellular, freshwater, green microalga. It is a nutrient-dense, alkaline-forming superfood providing protein, fiber, essential fatty acids (it is an excellent source of linolenic acid), and a full spectrum of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, antioxidants, mucopolysaccharides, and phytonutrients. Among these nutrients are significant amounts of Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K1, all the major B vitamins (including B12); iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and zinc; an abundance of naturally occurring beta-carotene and lutein.
REJUVENATE!™ contains chlorella, d-ribose, nutritional yeast, chia seeds, rice bran solubles, spirulina, Vitamin C, chlorella growth factor (CGF), magnesium, dulse, kelp, yeast RNA, folinic acid, and methylcobalamin (Vitamin B12). The formula comes in powdered form and contains no other ingredients.
2011 update) of the Z scheme including structural information on the organisation of the protein complexes involved in electron (e-) and proton (H+) transport within the thylakoid membrane of green plants.
While so-called OPR proteins form a diverse family in green algae, in most land plants only a single protein of this type is found. A new study shows why it has been retained – its function is important for efficient photosynthesis.
the world's first superfood designed to provide therapeutic levels of dietary nucleic acids. It is not only the first ever dedicated high-RNA superfood, but also is the "greenest" superfood (in the Rejuvenate!™ line) providing the high levels of chlorella and spirulina. It is the the most powerfully detoxifying of the Rejuvenate!™ superfoods, and a favorite for individuals who enjoy green superfoods.
Green algae and higher plants both harbor specialized cell organelles – the chloroplasts – in which photosynthesis takes place. This process allows these organisms to utilize energy from sunlight to power their biochemical reactions, including the production of carbohydrates. Chloroplasts are descended from formerly free-living single-celled organisms that were engulfed by other cells millions of years ago, and have survived since then because their hosts benefit from their activities. Chloroplasts have retained their own genomic DNA – albeit much reduced in size – it now carries only around 100 genes. The expression of the genes in the chloroplast is largely under the control of so-called Helical Repeat Proteins, termed PPRs and TPRs, which are encoded in the cell nucleus.
The movement and placement of charges has a great influence on molecular interactions between molecules and thus affects structure and function of proteins, DNA, and cell membranes.
Dr. Frank’s animal experiments, and his experience with human subjects, showed many beneficial effects, indicating that dietary nucleic acids (i.e., nucleic acids in the diet and through dietary supplementation) can be useful adjuncts in protocols for a wide variety of conditions. Among the beneficial effects Dr. Frank recorded were increased growth (especially muscle growth), greater endurance; positive effects on the cardiovascular system; greater lung capacity and easier breathing (i.e., better oxygen utilization); higher tolerance for temperature extremes (cold and hot); smoother skin and a more youthful appearance; greater vitality and longevity (in experimental animals compared to controls).
A topic much emphasized by Dr. Frank is the importance of vitamins and minerals for achieving optimal results in subjects following protocols for nucleic acid nutrition and therapy. Dr. Frank found that whereas vitamins by themselves might produce health effects in his subjects, and nucleic acids by themselves achieved very definite results, the greatest results involved both vitamins and nucleic acids. Dr. Frank found that vitamins and nucleic acids acted synergistically and tended to create results far surpassing those obtained by using either vitamins or nucleic acids.
The pioneering work of Dr. Frank and Dr. Jensen has provided a scientific and clinical basis for pursuing development of nutritional formulas that leverage the power of dietary nucleic acids for greater health and well-being.
Chlorella is a whole, natural superfood that has existed for billions of years. In addition to high-quality protein (its amino acid profile is similar to egg), essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and fiber, chlorella’s high levels of nucleic acids (5% to 15% RNA and .5% to 1.5% DNA) boost significantly its nutritional and therapeutic value.
