There is no nut or seed in the world with more protein than pine nuts. Indians used pine nut soup as a replacement for mothers milk! The reason you don’t see pine nuts in any protein powder is they are very expensive. We don’t care. We want the best. Period! Pine nuts are also super-high in essential fats and sometimes they can go rancid. The pine nuts in this formula are captured in a new special freeze-dry process developed in Russia to preserve their power and vitality for very long periods of time.

Helps the body absorb all these wonderful nutrients. Helps dissolve uric acid in the body (which helps with gout) and also oxalate kidney stones. Dying cancer cells create uric acid which puts a strain on kidneys. Malic acid helps clean that up. Helps increase oxygen transport into cells, and is an ATP precursor. ATP is the fuel for cells and helps them to function properly. Our cells require acids to generate energy including malic acid, citric acid, pyruvuc acid, pantothenic acid, etc. Malic acid also helps fibromyalgia.
Made from beet roots, TMG is great for helping nutrient absorption, energy production, hormone production, protecting DNA and rebuilding adrenals. It is one of the best methyl donors known. Almost every molecular bodily function requires methylation (there are over 4,000 methylation reactions in the body)- like switching genetic DNA back to where they should be, stomach acid formation, hormone and neurotransmitter production, energy, immunity, water balance, liver support, immune support, healing, helps to prevent heart disease by reducing inflammatory homocysteine, which leads to plaque formation. Most people are under-methylated, leading to less than optimal functioning of almost every bodily function and genetic problems. TMG helps get things back on track. It’s is also great for the liver, which is the body’s primary regulator for cholesterol and creator of glycogen and energy. By helping bring stomach acid levels back to normal, TMG ultimately helps everything from increased nutrient absorption to adrenal rebuilding (more energy) and getting hormones back on track. This may prove to be a new breakthrough in optimal body function.
Good for recovery. Glutamine is an amino acid that needs to be replaced after workouts. It also helps prevent post-workout tiredness and it makes you feel good.

Next to oxygen, magnesium is the most important substance in the body. We need lots of it and almost everyone has dangerously low levels. It is as important for life as the air we breathe. If other healing methods aren’t working that should be working, it means you are low in magnesium, because without it your body can’t be healthy. Stress depletes magnesium, so everyone in the modern world needs it.
