What’s ReAline, you ask? ReAline is a specific formula that provides the perfect building blocks to enhance and assist the body in detoxifying chemicals and heavy metals. Instead of forcing the body with purges or IV chelation, ReAline has l-methionine, which is the building block for glutathione, the body’s most important antioxidant. That way the body can detox when it wants to now when it’s forced to.
There is no practical way to protect yourself from all the toxins in the environment. You would have to live the rest of your life in a hermetically sealed suit (and it would be a short life since you couldn’t eat or drink.) Fortunately, there are ways to counteract some toxins and pollutants. Your body’s natural detoxification processes exist to deal with the ones we can’t avoid.
ReAline was the second formula that Dr. Dean worked on after the RnA Drops. Since that formula was first released in 2011, we have changed all the B’s to active, methylated forms, added methylated B-12, included a natural source of l-methionine, and most recently [beginning January 2017], included a food-based B1(thiamine). Here is the current formula, which can replace several supplements that you may be taking:
- Vitamin B1 (thiamine from Saccharomyces Boulardi) (natural source) – 4mg
- Vitamin B2 ( as Riboflavin 5 phosphate) – 6mg
- Vitamin B6 Pyridoxine 5 phosphate – 8mg
- Folic acid (as Quatrefolic) – 990mcg
- Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin) – 500mcg
- L-Methionine (natural source) – 500mg
- L-Taurine (natural source) – 200mg
- Betaine HCL – 100mg
Other Ingredients: Vegetable cellulose (capsule shell), Cellulose, Vegetable Stearate, Silica.
ReAline is a critical component to the Total Body ReSet for good reason!

L-methionine and l-taurine are sulfur amino acids, which help with the liver’s sulfation detox pathways. The B vitamins work synergistically with magnesium and methionine. All four are methylated to help with liver methylated detoxification pathways to help break down toxic homocysteine. The introduction of methylated B’s became even more important as the MTHFR gene mutations were identified. Betaine HCL is also a methylated compound. I contend that gene mutations are expressed partly because of Magnesium and other nutrient deficiencies.
The B vitamins are essential to support our neurological health. This became even more obvious when we found deficient B12, B6, and folate in the autism spectrum and also in the elderly. But there is much more to them. They are cofactors in thousands of biochemical processes. The B vitamins work together; they help cells burn fats and glucose for energy, they promote cell growth and division, maintain healthy skin and muscle tone, support and increase the rate of metabolism, enhance immune and nervous system function, which includes easing stress and improving mood probably triggered by an increased production of serotonin. Their ability to help reduce anxiety, depression, and PMS is enhanced with the use of magnesium.
Most B vitamins are synthetic and doctors are forced to recommend higher and higher doses to try to get some reaction. However, food-based or methylated B’s are in the active form that the body requires. To acquire the B vitamins that are not included in ReAline, use lots of Brewer’s yeast on your organic popcorn!
Methionine has 4 major roles in the ReAline formula. Methionine is a building block in the manufacture of all our proteins including: structural, contractile, blood proteins, antibodies, hormones, and enzymes. It is a methyl donor, needed for the production of neurotransmitters; a sulfur donor; and a precursor in the synthesis of other amino acids. Methionine has the ability to inhibit toxic metals from crossing the blood-brain barrier. Methionine is a critical component of tissue development, growth and tissue repair for all humans at any age.
Taurine is a precursor to GABA; reduces elevated levels of cortisol in the body; helps burn fat; improves insulin sensitivity; increases testosterone production; acts as an antioxidant; enhances heart and brain function and improves sleep. It also lends sulfur molecules to the liver for its sulfation detox pathways.
Even though sulfur is the third most common mineral in the body (after calcium and phosphorous), sulfur’s importance is not commonly acknowledged. However, it is a key component in balanced DNA and protein replication. Sulfur is important for the production of mucous and detoxification. Obtaining sulfur from methionine and taurine is more metabolically sound than taking sulfur supplements because the body can gauge how much it requires in any given moment.
On one of her weekly radio shows Dr. Carolyn Dean speaks in great detail about the benefits of taking ReAline to detox the body and support the liver! Those who have MTHRF, methylation, or candida [yeast overgrowth] will find this show particularly helpful.
Dr. Dean bases her comments in response to an article by Ben Lynch: Methylation Inhibited by Candida’s Toxin:
Lynch talks about the Methionine Pathway and the Methionine Synthase doesn’t work if you
1) lack the active substrate such as methylfolate (Vit-B9)
2) lack cofactors such as methylcobalamin (Vit-B12), and
3) are exposed to inhibiting compounds such as heavy metals, solvents, chemicals, and toxins like acetyl aldehyde. Candida produces Acetylaldehyde! Acetylaldehyde is a byproduct of alcohol. It’s called the hangover chemical.
Four key routes of AH arrival are:
- Alcohol consumption
- Candida Albicans (the “Yeast Syndrome”) – which produces alcohol!
- Exhaust from cars and trucks
- Cigarette smoking
They all stress the body and use up magnesium. Aldehyde Dehydrogenase breaks down acetaldehyde but needs magnesium to do that. Besides magnesium and minerals, Carolyn has a secondary focus: yeast overgrowth. Antibiotics, Birth Control Pills, Cortisone, as well as “Stress!” (which actually causes increased production of Cortisone) excessive sugar and carb consumption (especially Hi Fructose Corn Syrup which turns into ethanol) lead to Yeast overgrowth, which then causes an increase in AH in the gut.
To Repeat: Acetylaldehyde kills methionine synthase disrupting the Methylation and Sulfation Pathways. But in Dr. Dean’s humble opinion… this dysfunction is NOT due to a “gene mutation” – it is very much Epigenetic due to excess “stressors” and the lack of proper minerals, especially Dr. Dean’s favorite ReMag, which prevents the proper breakdown of this neurotoxin, Acetylaldehyde.
