Alpha Nutrition specializes in elemental nutrient formulas, the pure
expression of nutrient biochemistry. We provide a choice of nutrient
modules so that food can be replaced, nutrient intake can be supplemented and
balanced in a variety of ways. Two formulas, Alpha ENF and PMX can replace food
completely. Other formulas provide nutrient modules for special use. These
formulas can be combined to adjust nutrient intake to individual needs.
There are three ideas used in the design of Alpha Nutrient formulas
The first idea is that we need to take in about 40 substances to be healthy
and function well. These substances are nutrients and are available from foods
as long we eat enough of the right foods every day.
The second idea is that we can eat the 40 nutrients in their pure form and
avoid all the negative effects of eating foods. Eating pure nutrients also
permits good nutrient absorption when digestive tract function is impaired.
The third idea is that optimal nutrition requires a carefully calculated and
balanced intake of nutrients. The three ideas are combined in the design of the
Alpha Nutrient formulas. Forty nutrients are combined to provide carefully
calculated and balanced intake of nutrients
Elemental Nutrient Formulas (ENFs) are used in hospital medicine. They are
used to manage digestive diseases and to provide adequate nourishment when
eating food is undesirable or impossible. We explored the use of ENFs in
solving other common health problems. The traffic of non-nutrient chemicals
through the body can be thought of as the "overburden" or cost of food intake.
Reducing food-processing cost is a form of metabolic rest that has therapeutic
applications in many diseases.
One of the therapeutic secrets of Alpha nutrient formulas is the avoidance of
proteins or pieces of proteins known as peptides. Staple foods such as milk,
eggs, wheat, and meat contain proteins that frequently cause immune responses
and are the basic problem in delayed patterns of food allergy. Protein powders
sold as "body-building" supplements can be a source of trouble. Alpha elemental
formulas avoid all protein problems by providing a balanced set of l-amino
acids, the real nutrients derived from proteins by digestion of food.
Amino acids do not cause immune responses. One key idea is that if food is
suspect in causing an illness, a food holiday using an ENF to supply nutrition
would confirm or deny food involvement, usually within 10 days. If the food
holiday proved successful, the Alpha Nutrition Program would become a standard
method of redefining a healthier diet.
The most popular formula we make is Alpha ENF. We include this formula in
most starter packs. If you need to replace food completely, then Alpha ENF is
the best choice. The standard ENF is unflavored. You can choose the formula with
Vanillin added as flavoring. If you do not want vegetable oil in the formula,
then choose Alpha PMX. If you are diabetic, then order Alpha DMX. If the goal is to reduce or eliminate protein intake, or to supplement protein
intake, amino acids can be added to the diet as Alpha AAX in a dose range of 10
to 50 Grams per day
Alpha DMX boosts the intake of nutrients that have a
demonstrated benefit in preventing and/or reducing the negative consequences of
diabetes 2 and arterial disease. Alpha DMX can provide nutritional support
whenever food intake is restricted because of disease.
