REINCARNATION® provides the body with bioactive polysaccharides, modified nucleosides, and metabolites that improve the body’s ability to maintain physical effort and adapt to the various challenges we face every day. Poor diet, lack of sleep, mental or physical strain, and chemical toxins in the environment can be countered by REINCARNATION®’s action as an adaptogen, promoting the body’s ability to maintain homeostasis and resist stress as it prevents or minimizes imbalances that may lead to disease.
The human immune system is made up of more than 230 different types of cells, like T-cells, Macrophages and Natural Killer cells which are normally in a quiescent state, circulating through the body looking for invaders and aberrant cells. Each has activation receptors on its surface that come into play as needed. When a challenge occurs the receptors on the surface of these cells attract and bind to polysaccharides. The different polysaccharides attach to immune cells, and cause those cells to become activated. They either turn the cell on, or turn it off. They trigger the release of specialized chemical messengers, or they trigger other functions appropriate to the challenge. REINCARNATION® increases the actual number of these cells many fold, thereby boosting the body’s ability to attain and maintain vibrant health.
These immune activating polysaccharides will not over-activate the immune system, rather when supplied with the appropriate polysaccharides, the body is able to adequately address challenges with its defenses fortified. Pharmacological and toxicological studies have shown some of the activities of REINCARNATION® to be oxygen-free radical scavenging, antisenescence, endocrine, hypolipidemic, antiatherosclerotic, and support for proper function of the adrenals and reproductive system. REINCARNATION® supports improved glucose metabolism by increasing insulin sensitivity.
REINCARNATION® is recognized as a premier tonifier, possessing potent antioxidant and anti-lipid peroxidation activities that inhibit accumulation of cholesterol via suppression of LDL oxidation. These effects, attributed to its components, are classified as “host defense potentiators”; polysaccharides, ophiocordin (an antibiotic compound), cordypyridones, nucleosides, bioxanthracenes, sterols, alkenoic acids, hemicellulose, triterpeniods, complex starches and exo-polymers. Two of the most remarkable chemicals; cordycepin (deoxyadenosine) and cordycepic acid (mannitol) are thought to be especially beneficial and may account for REINCARNATION®’s ability to increase oxygen uptake and utilization. The safety of REINCARNATION®, its effects on the nervous system, glucose metabolism, the respiratory, hepatic, cardiovascular, and immune systems, immunologic disease, inflammatory conditions, cancer, and diseases of the kidney is well documented.
Thousands of years ago people learned that different kinds of herbs were useful for maintaining vibrant health and resistance. They routinely utilized naturally occurring polysaccharides to optimize their health and well being. Today we are relearning that nature is still the superior source of important compounds we can use in our quest for health.
