Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How was the ingredient mix determined and why were they formulated in this way?
A: The ReCODE Core Kit contains the following:
- Morning Balance powder and Evening Balance powder – these stick packs come in the same box as one product – the “Daily Balance.”
- Daily Multivitamin, Daily Probiotics, Daily Antioxidants and Daily Omega-3s – these come in sachets (to be taken twice daily) in one box – the “Daily Essentials.”
Dr. Bredesen’s decades of research led him to understand the key role that certain nutrients, probiotics, herbs and fish oils play in supporting normal cognitive function. He collaborated with LifeSeasons to develop Daily Balance and Daily Essentials with the most valuable ingredients for everyday use.
Q: Dale Bredesen, MD, has researched and recommended L-Citrulline. Why wasn’t it used in the ReCODE products?
A: L-Citrulline is a potent nitric oxide booster. However, the volume of L-Citrulline needed to get the desired effect is extremely high, so we’ve worked with Dr. Bredesen to identify and secure similar or superior ingredients. Alternative nitric oxide boosters, including beetroot, ginger, and vitamin C, were added to the formulations to achieve the same or better results.
Q: Why was ubiquinone used in the products instead of ubiquinol?
A: Both ubiquinone and ubiquinol are effective isomers of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) supplementation. Hundreds of scientific studies have shown that ubiquinone promotes energy production and neutralizes free radicals.
Q: Dale Bredesen, MD, has researched and recommended MCT oil. Why wasn’t it used in the ReCODE products?
A: A number of health benefits have been attributed to medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil, and Dr. Bredesen is a proponent of it. However, when he worked with our product formulators, they determined potassium caprylate would be a better ingredient to use in the ReCODE supplements. Potassium caprylate is more stable, and a higher-density form of MCT than MCT oil.
Q: Dale Bredesen, MD, has researched and recommended Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus brevis and Bifidobacterium lactis. Why weren’t these probiotics used in the ReCODE products?
A: Although Dr. Bredesen has recommended Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus brevis and Bifidobacterium lactis in the past, he and our product formulators chose to use Lactobacillus helveticus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and Bifidobacterium breve instead. These three probiotic strains provide similar or superior gut health benefits and have consistently proven to have a stronger stability profile. Shelf-stable ingredients help to protect the potency and integrity of the ReCODE supplements.
Q: Why do some of the individual ingredient doses in the ReCODE product formulas differ from the supplement doses recommended by Dale Bredesen, MD, in his book The End of Alzheimer’s?
A: Dr. Bredesen worked directly with LifeSeasons to create and formulate each of the ReCODE products. Each ingredient was evaluated for its effectiveness, potency, stability, and cost. In a number of instances, ingredients were changed because a better source was identified.
Q: Should I be concerned about any of the ingredients interacting with other medications I may be taking?
A: As with any dietary supplement or prescription medication, do not take ReCODE supplements without first consulting your healthcare practitioner, especially if you are pregnant, nursing, or under medical supervision for any reason.
