The holidays are here and boy are they fun! Some people think it’s the most wonderful time of the year and I [Ginney] am one of those people.

After all these years, I don’t even TRY to kid myself that I am not going to enjoy my favorite holiday treats this time of year.  Oh, yes, I could demonize my favorite Queen Anne Chocolate Covered Maraschino Cherries or psyche myself out about the extra glass of really yummy red wine I will drink this Thanksgiving but I am not going to do that.

What I am going to do is have LOTS of ReAline on hand and detox as I go.  That’s right – instead of waiting for some crazy fad detox diet to start on January 1st, I am building my detox program the safe, healthy way every day the holidays are here so I can enjoy my favorite time of year and feel good in my body as well!.

ReAline was the second formula that  Dr. Dean worked on after the RnA Drops. The current formula contains:

  • Vitamin B1 (thiamine from Saccharomyces Boulardi) (natural source) – 4mg
  • Vitamin B2 ( as Riboflavin 5 phosphate) – 4 mg
  • Niacin (from Saccharomyces Cells) – 10 mg
  • Vitamin B6 Pyridoxine 5 phosphate – 4 mg
  • Folic acid (as Quatrefolic®) – 200 mcg
  • Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin) – 250 mcg
  • Biotin (from Saccharomyces Cells) – 50 mcg
  • L-Methionine (natural source) – 500mg
  • L-Taurine (natural source) – 200mg
  • Pantothenic Acid (from Saccharomyces Cells) – 6 mg

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 not when it’s forced to.

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. Dr. Dean contends 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.

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.

We hope that you take the appropriate steps to make good food and drink choices over the holidays. I know I will, and, I am keeping my ReAline close by to be a practical support to my body’s natural detoxification processes should I ‘overindulge’.
