This month frequently asked questions are focused on the use of Recovery with HydroFX® as a powder.
See the Youtube VIDEO http://youtu.be/jOHal2aTTJ0 Alkaline Water
Recovery powdered features two very important benefits. The first is the creation of alkaline water regardless of the type of water that you are using. This is a massive cost-benefit to the consumer of alkaline water because you no longer need to purchase expensive water machines and you can convert lesser expensive water to very healthy alkaline, antioxidant and molecular hydrogen rich water. Our testing used distilled water which is the most difficult water to make alkaline because the mineral content to create traditional alkalinity simply is not in the water. The miracle of Recovery in a powder form created an 8.44 alkalinity level in distilled water that would only get higher (more alkaline) with mineral water.
The NORP (Negative Oxidative Reduction Potential) testing was equally dramatic. This test is a true test of antioxidant potential in Recovery with HydroFX®. In less than 90 seconds the distilled water test created -707 and it continued to rise (more negative) to 750+. NORP values are more significant and relevant to cellular health as compared to ORAC which is more applicable to juices and plant materials but not as powerful as NORP.
The remarkable conversion of acidic distilled water to alkaline water with Recovery
The rapid (90 second) creation of -707 NORP from a positive +200!
The production of Molecular Hydrogen is the true test of the powerful health benefits using Recovery with HydroFX® powder. Interestingly the NORP and Alkaline pH changes in our distilled water test are actually driven by the remarkable levels of molecular hydrogen created as a result of adding Recovery Powder to the water. Very simply stated the maximum level of pure hydrogen via the testing device is 1.6 and you will see the meter (photo) nearing 1.0! Competing products including expensive water machines make produce a maximum of a hundred times LESS hydrogen!
The second major benefit is the fact that most people are not willing to stop drinking coffee, Recovery with HydroFX® Powder will convert a very acidic cup of coffee into a remarkably healthy beverage satisfying the consumer by creating an alkaline, antioxidant and molecular hydrogen rich coffee beverage. I refer to this as “your cake and eat it too” in that you have your traditionally unhealthy acidic stimulant beverage and with a dash of Recovery powder you create a truly positive health beverage.
It is important to point out that many popular coffee beverages have severe product design and ingredient defects that are harmful to human health. A popular medicinal mushroom (fungus) is recklessly added to artificially sweetened and chemically processed instant coffee that is artificially flavored and colored. Most of the readers of this information have knowledge of the harmful effects of artificial sweeteners and food additives. The lesser known dangers of Ganoderma lucidum are featured in the following paragraphs.
Ganoderma lucidum, commonly known as reishi mushroom, has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine. Ganoderma contains important constituents that may help to treat high blood pressure, diabetes, infections and hepatitis. Due to its effects in the body, ganoderma may cause dangerous effects in people with certain medical conditions and can cause negative interactions with some prescription medications. Long-term use (more than six months) of ganoderma may also cause certain side effects.
Common side effects from taking ganoderma include stomach upset, nosebleeds, dry mouth and dizziness, notes the University of Michigan Health System. You may also experience dry throat, itching, nausea and vomiting, says the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Additionally, you should consult your doctor before taking ganoderma if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, the University of Michigan advises.
THE ALKALINE DIET and WEIGHT LOSS MADE SIMPLE Road To Black Diamond Recipe
http://youtu.be/_PkXhhGNLhY Black Diamond Recipe on Youtube!
- Beets or Purple Potatoes (Peru) $3.00 (Cut to small squares)
- White Onion $1.00 (Peel and cut into small pieces)
- Asparagus (One bunch and use the tips) $2.00
- Raw Cashews $5.00 (one cup)
- Lemon $1.00 (Sprinkle over cooked and cooled vegetables)
- Garlic Cloves (pre-peeled) $2.00 (add ½ cup whole)
- Wild Rice $5.00 (8oz.)
- Sea Salt / Black Pepper (to taste)
- Coconut oil Olive Oil (two tablespoons to rice and 4 oz. Olive Oil to Veggies.)
On a cookie sheet or pizza tray place the cut vegetables and place in a cold oven for 30min and 20 cool down….420 degrees. Allow the oven to warm with the food and cool as well. Gradual heating does not shock the vegetables and makes them more flavor rich. Liberally use three to four ounces of olive oil to cover the vegetables before cooking.
Place (5) plastic tupperwares on the counter. Cook the wild rice per the directions and add coconut oil and sea salt once cooked… I use pure water. Once cooked , place the warm rice in each container and add the vegetable blend and refrigerate …salt to taste.
Now you have healthy food dish that is ready to go! You can eat this salad on the go and even eat it room temperature or cold!
That’s food made simple as 1,2,3.
- Alkaline Healthy
- Cost Effective (19/5 = $3.80 per meal!)
BEET : Nitric Oxide and Nitrates improve blood pressure profiles, Betaine (natural antidepressant) Purple Potatoes are pale in comparison.
GARLIC : Whole Clove consumption; Alliin + Allinase = Allicin = Anti EVERYTHING! Anti viral, fungal, bacterial, inflammatory…huge cardiovascular benefits.
ONIONS : Steroids for vitamin C, Chromium for Blood Sugar Regulation and the mighty Quercetin for immune support
CASHEWS : (Raw) Magnesium rich and improved lipid profiles, and kills gram positive bacteria (great for the oral cavity and plaque fighting)
ASPARAGUS : This herbaceous plant—along with avocado, kale and Brussels sprouts—is a particularly rich source of glutathione, a detoxifying compound that helps break down carcinogens and other harmful compounds like free radicals.
WILD RICE : 2x Protein as Brown Rice and 30x the antioxidant potential as white rice. Phosphorous, Zinc and Folate rich
OLIVE OIL : Omega 9 rich
COCONUT OIL: Medium Chain Triglycerides and Lauric Acid are great for athletes and anti-viral as well.
Amino Acids; Brain Function and Mood
The key brain neurotransmitters are made of amino acids. Far better proteins are plant based proteins that offer organic status and they are quickly absorbed in the body. Meats require significant stomach acid and digestive energy to process and break down to their essential elements.
If you are supplementing with good protein every day, (most people with eating and weight problems are doing neither), your positive mood and freedom from cravings can be maintained. This will allow you to quickly start removing the carb and sugar rich foods. Mood supplements rarely hit the mark due to high cost and the fact that everyone is “wired” differently i.e. the brain is too complex for processed nutrients.
Restoring depleted brain chemistry sounds like a big job—but it isn’t. Three of the four key neurotransmitters are made from just a single amino acid each! Because biochemists isolate these key amino acids and extract them from special yeasts, natural plant sources are now popular considering that purists do not like supplements that are processed and modified from yeast. Researchers have confirmed the effectiveness of amino acid to increase the key neurotransmitters, thereby eliminating depressed mood, stress, and cravings. Here are four amino acids that particularly work to improve energy and mood:
Glutamine: L-glutamine supplements are among the most popular amino acid supplements for many reasons. They are useful for treating fatigue and depression. Glutamic acid, which is derived from glutamine, is essential for ideal brain function. During times of stress, your body uses up mass amounts of glutamine. Glutamine is highly effective at fighting sugar and starch cravings. Glutamine is used to aid muscle recovery when taken before or after exercise. Suggested dosage is 1500mg daily and the 7.2 Shake has a potent 2495mg per serving of pure Glutamic Acid!
Phenylalanine: This is an essential amino acid which cannot be manufactured by the body. Phenylalanine is used to produce tyrosine, and directly affects mood and energy. Phenylalanine is used to treat fatigue, mood disorders, monthly hormonal issues, problems with food cravings, overeating, and chronic pain. Suggested dosing begins at 500 mg, daily, 7.2 Shake has 760mg naturally occurring Phenylalanine per serving.
Tryptophan: This essential amino acid is a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin is important for providing a feeling of calm and well-being. Tryptophan is quite effective, and acts quickly to help produce optimal levels of serotonin. 7.2 Shake has 130mg per serving.
Tyrosine: This amino acid is a precursor of adrenaline, dopamine and norepinephrine, which are important for maintaining a sense of well-being and energy, and also promote a healthy metabolism and nervous system. Tyrosine also works with iodine to promote thyroid health. Tyrosine is excellent for treating fatigue, low moods, low sex drive and stress. 7.2 Shake has 650mg of Tyrosine per serving.
