Core Regime

Revised February 2014

The reason for the Core Regime is to provide, as simply and elegantly as possible, all of the nutrients, as far as is practicable, that are required to achieve optimum health.

The healing power of the correct nutritional supplements is exceptional, and if understood and pursued with diligence can, in the vast majority of cases, result in significant improvement to health, and often the elimination of disease. Even with the best possible diet, the use of correct nutritional supplements is still extremely important for achieving optimum health.

The body needs many nutrients to function efficiently and repair properly. Without these nutrients we can get sick, have low energy, suffer stress more easily and eventually can develop chronic health disorders including all of the life threatening diseases and the diseases of old age. Even genetically influenced health disorders are affected by the nutrients we do or do not consume. Many genetic disease tendencies can be understood as a genetic need for more of particular nutrients.

There are many enzymes, vitamins, minerals, trace elements and special nutrients such as glyco-nutrients. It is impossible to provide for all of these nutrients if we rely on refined supplements of particular vitamins and minerals. That is why Regenerative Nutrition supply mainly broad spectrum nutrients to make complete or almost complete supplementation a practical reality with as few supplements as possible. Several of our products are supplied as liquids and some as a choice of powders or capsules. In this way, if required, powders and liquids can be blended together in cold or warm water or juice (do not use hot water, as most of our products contain an array of enzymes and other ingredients that are destroyed by heat).

Almost everyone can achieve significantly higher levels of health using the Core Regime. Broad spectrum nutrients really do work.

The method has been shown to work at both combating disease states, and improving overall health and well-being. To achieve optimum health and overcome impediments, a full spectrum of nutrients is required combined with a healthy diet, including properly filtered water or chemical free water in its natural state and some exercise and fresh air. Taking isolated, refined or man-made supplements cannot fully address health issues.

Supplements for a Full Spectrum Nutritional Program

Full Spectrum Mineral Salts

Virtually all sea salts lack sufficient trace minerals. Refined salt is even worse and can be irritating or even toxic to the body, yet full spectrum salts are essential for biochemical balance, lowering high blood pressure and raising low blood pressure naturally. Magnesium deficiency is generally considered to be almost universal and is one of the fundamental minerals, essential for moving health forwards (see later section specifically about magnesium)..

Ionic Liquid Minerals with Trace Elements Sun-concentrated, filtered inland sea water that provides you with the perfect balance of full-spectrum electrolyte salts. Full spectrum salts provide your body with a complex mixture of the minerals & trace elements found in seawater - these harmonise with the bodies cells & internal fluids to support good health.

Celtic Ocean Sea Salt is highly recommended for use on food.

Colloidal Minerals 

Schindelleís Mineralien has a complimentary opposite effect to the soluble minerals such as Ionic Liquid Minerals, Mag Sea Pure and the minerals in Seagreens and Barley Grass. A dynamic remedy that can protect against radiation, strengthen vitality and a successful history of over 30 years of use even as a sole remedy. Remineralisation is an essential building block of health and as such Schindelleís Minerals is a valuable piece of the mineral and trace element jigsaw. It contains minerals such as silicon, potassium, iron, magnesium, calcium, sodium, phosphorus and aluminium* as well as metallic trace elements such as manganese, zinc, boron, vanadium, copper, chrome, cobalt, nickel, titanium, niobium, molybdenum, silver, selenium etc. An excellent all round supplement which also helps to improve the uptake of the nutritional elements in your food. 

Vitamin D

The importance of Vitamin D is often over-looked. Vitamin D is a hormone like substance that is manufactured in the skin in response to sunlight exposure. Failure to obtain a least a few minutes a day of direct sunlight exposure on the skin (The Sun will not be high enough in the sky to enable UVB rays to get through to generate Vitamin D in the skin for many months a year in northern climates such as northern Europe, UK, northern USA) will result in a deficiency of Vitamin D. Deficiencies have now been linked to a multiple array of diseases and a greatly increased incidence of cancer. These diseases include arthritis, muscle weakness, multiple sclerosis, and other auto-immune disorders. In fact studies have now indicated that mortality from all causes is significantly increased in Vitamin D deficient individuals. This is not surprising when one considers the multitude of biochemical reactions that cannot complete without Vitamin D. Even the failure to integrate calcium and magnesium has been established to be resultant from Vitamin D deficiency. This defficiency has far reaching implications for getting the health right.

Vitamin D3 2000IU One can take a broad-spectrum of nutrients and be conscientious about ones diet, but failure to address the Vitamin D issue will often result in health problems as it is so commonly overlooked. This is especially true of the elderly and people who already have compromised health, who tend not to venture outside much. This problem has been compounded by the, often contradictory, information about the actual amount of Vitamin D that we need. There have been warnings by health authorities in the past, not to take more than about 800 IU a day. Research has now found that larger supplemental doses are required to overcome Vitamin D deficiency syndrome. The general advice based on this knowledge, client experience, and clinical trials is to supplement initially with around 2000IU-4000IU per day for a few months, thereafter about 2000 IU is usually sufficient. Vitamin D is stored in the body. So, for example, if you are exposed to strong sunlight without sunscreen for 30 minutes a day for a few weeks then the body will store enough Vitamin D to last possibly a couple months. 

Safety Issues In the past there were reports of toxicity at higher doses. Further investigation has found that most or all of these reports were for Vitamin D2, (ergocalciferol). Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the form natural to the body. And is not toxic, in doses below 10,000 IU. In very rare cases people can be hypersensitive to Vitamin D, usually confined to persons with such conditions are sarcoidosis, oat cell carcinoma of the lung, and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma-although other illness, such as primary hyperparathyroidism, can also cause the syndrome. Please read the full article for further details.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C supplementation has a long history of use, and along with Vitamin D is, in practice, the most useful general isolated vitamin supplement required for good health. We have tried to avoid isolated vitamins and minerals as far as we can, but we find that we have to make the exception with this and Vitamin D3.

Sodium Ascorbate with Acerola Cherry Extract and Wild Rosehip The original discovery of Vitamin C was based around the body's natural form Sodium Ascorbate. The reasons why this is the 'preferred' form of Vitamin C is discussed here. We have mixed this with Acerola Cherry Extract and Wild Rosehip to give a food state Vitamin C complex with all the co-factors needed for pure vitamin C to do its full work. This is provided as a powder.

Acerola Cherry Extract and Wild Rosehip If you prefer capsules and purely food state Vitamin C, then we supply this as an alternative to the above.


Multi-Green Nutrition The body requires many nutrients to work efficiently, and many of these are missing in sufficient quantities, even in a carefully selected diet. After years of experimenting with combinations of nutrients and superfoods, Regenerative Nutrition finally arrived at a satisfactory formula, suitable even for delicate types, balancing calming and energising aspects. Multi-Green Nutrition is available as a powder or in vegecaps. The main ingredients are Barley Grass and Seagreens, the other ingredients provide a balanced and synergistic nutritional input.

Barley Grass Juice Powder is recommended as an addition if one wishes larger amounts of greens added to the diet. This is a highly concentrated and quality product. Calming, broad spectrum that can be used in quantity.

Wild Spanish Pollen is recommended as an addition to boost vitality and the immune system. It may be taken off the spoon and chewed, or sprinkled onto food (do not cook).

Natur-Leaf is recommended for it's ability to normalise the immune system and it general health benefits. Sterols and sterolins are found in many foods, but due to processing, cooking, rapid loss of, and difficulty in absorption, may be regarded as being almost universally deficient in the modern diet. Supplemental sterols and sterolins have been found to be completely non-toxic. Sterols and Sterolins are useful for general health maintenance, to keep a balanced immune system, detoxify the system and help to prevent disease. Natur-Leaf has anti-inflammatory effects, help to balance the hormones, support cellular health and much, much more.


Zell Immunocomplex is the next, equally important, supplement. Alongside Multi Green Nutrition, it is our top recommended nutritional supplement.  Minimum maintenance use 10ml (One dessertspoon daily). Regular recommended use 30ml daily. Zell Immunocomplex helps to maintain healthy cellular respiration, hence aiding tissue oxygenation. This is important for maintaining correct brain and heart functioning. It also supplies a broad spectrum of nutrients to help with the immune and nervous system. It is a product with many years of successful clinical use, the ultimate 'food-state' nutrient package.  A more balanced approach than oxygen therapy and in almost all cases an essential part of a regenerative programme.

Zell Oxygen is provided as an alternative for those with very sensitive constitutions, in particular ME sufferers. For these types we recommend starting with Zell Oxygen, and once adapted, move onto Zell Immunocomplex.

Iodine: Lugol's Solution (7%) the uses and health benefits are very wide ranging, wider than is generally realised by people who have made a moderate study of Iodine. This is because there are so many ramifications from what it does. For example just in the area of wiping out infection, this can relate to chronic infections and these are almost always present in all serious disease such as all auto-immune disorders, and even cancer, as cancer has been found to thrive in conditions of fungal overgrowth. Then there is the modern plague of Candida infection, dysbiosis and also the related chronic fatigue, These can be dealt with and of course prevented with Iodine supplementation.
Iodine supplementation is a essential thing to do if we want optimum health. It is such as safe mineral and has safety margins far higher than commonly used trace element supplements such as zinc and certainly Selenium. Even if you feel perfectly well just 12 mg a day of iodine can help fight off infections so the latest pandemic scare need not concern us if we understand Iodine's use in eliminating infections (Increase dose for adult to 50 to 100mg daily if you get a serious infection, but this is unlikely if you have maintained whole body sufficiency at 12mg a day for a considerable period.

Sulphur exists in many forms in nature. Attracting most attention is MSM Powder - a form of organic sulphur that is widely deficient in our diet. Sulphur is a mineral essential to life, it helps to form the protein structure of the body and is crucial for many metabolic processes. It is only by eating mainly a raw diet that we can obtain enough MSM to meet our bodily requirements. This popular supplement is a convenient way to provide for your body's needs if not following a raw diet.

Low MSM levels may result in adverse psychological and physical stress, tissue and organ malfunction, fatigue and increased susceptibility to disease.
Magnesium is one of the key minerals for regeneration; it is used in over 350 enzymatic reactions in the body, more than any other mineral. Next to Oxygen & Iodine, Magnesium is the third most important element for sustaining life as well as reversing disease and aging. It is estimated that 80% of the population of western countries are is magnesium deficient. Mag Sea Pure is considered the remedy of choice for resolving this deficiency

Magnesium is the calming mineral for relaxing muscles, relaxing arteries and calming nerves, whereas Calcium contracts muscles. Nutritionist Thomas Steinmetz found that Magnesium deficiency is the cause of death from sudden heart attacks in 8 million people in the U.S. from 1940-1994. Magnesium is rapidly used by the adrenal glands in times of stress. Magnesium maintains proper electrical potential (voltage) across nerve and muscle membrane and increases white blood cells ability to fight infection by 300%. The body does not hold onto Magnesium like it does Calcium. Magnesium is excreted as a result of high stress, sugar intake, alcohol, caffeine, diarrhea, high protein and fruits.
Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency:

Insomnia, Obesity, Migraines, PMT (PMS), Chocolate Cravings, Emotional Instability, Depression/Apathy, Anger, Nervousness, Anxiety, Epilepsy, Gall Stones, Congestive Heart Failure, Chronic Fatigue, High Blood Pressure, Constipation, Diabetes, Muscle Cramps, Osteoporosis, Kidney Stones,  Memory Problems, Noise Sensitivity, Numbness and Tingling, Nervous Tics, Excessive Perspiration, Anorexia, Asthma and Accelerated Aging.

Magnesium is one of the most important minerals that we need to be saturated with to achieve full mitochondrial production. It is the beginning of health, not the end.

Since I have started on the RN Core Regime my energy levels have been excellent. I have been able to push my body through training, recover faster, and have less injuries as a direct result of adding the RN supplements to my daily nutrition protocol. I Believe the quality of the RN supplements are the best in the market. I have recently put in another order with RN and I look forward to continuing my Iron-man training with the best quality supplements that money can buy! I would also like to comment on how superb the customer service is at RN. Thank you for getting back to all of my emails and questions I have had over the past few months!! All the best, Cheers Ryan
Improving Chi or Life Energy
For nutrition to be properly utilised and for health to improve the important factor of Chi or Life-Energy needs to be addressed. The three aspects of this are
  1. Constitutionally low Chi
  2. Low Chi caused by a underground body of water below the home or workplace that effects the persons in those buildings. This is surprisingly common for people with chronic health disorders.
  3. Disturbed Chi due to electromagnetic stress.
To help overcome these issues you can use a Room Charger and / or an Chi-Life Energy Pendant. For details click here

May 2015 - Important addendum to this protocol - The addition of DMG
Why DMG?
DMG is truly an astounding nutritional supplement that I find myself recommending to everyone. I am sorry that I had not looked into DMG before, even though I took some briefly in the 1980's.

The reason I recommended it for everyone is that it tends to bring the whole system in to balance, so reducing the manifestation of diseases and health issues. Further, it adds a robustness to the system enabling it to cope with stresses of many types. An example of its incredible ability is that it is an extremely effective normaliser of the immune system; on the one hand boosting its efficiency and ability to keep disease at bay whilst at the same time reducing or eliminating auto-immune issues and tendency to inflammation.

These actions are achieved by significantly improving cell to cell communication and filling in gaps in the body's biochemistry (via methyl donation). Combined with its action of buffering stress as an extremely effective adaptogen, it can be useful even for those with adrenal fatigue and/or delicate health who struggle to find a therapy they can adapt to. 

Many supplements have broad acting benefits, but the percentage of those using the supplement achieving significant boosts to their health is always limited by the body's ability to adapt and utilise it. DMG is not like those supplements, in as much as everybody should benefit from it's use. It is a stand out remedy in the advanced nutritional healing field, and personally I believe it should be included in any health nutritional program sooner or later. 
John Claydon - Founder of Regenerative Nutrition
DMG produces a wide range of beneficial biological effects on the body including... 
  • increased energy levels 
  • improved neurological function and mental clarity 
  • better physical performance
  • improved sexual function 
  • better cardiovascular health 
  • vastly improved immune system function, whilst inhibiting immune system response
  • better cholesterol, blood glucose and hormone levels
Research has found that DMG can enable one to function at improved mental and physical levels whilst simultaneously helping with the resolution of many diseases and health conditions.

September 2017 - Important addendum to this protocol - The addition of Vitamin K2
Why Vitamin K2?
Most people have never heard of Vitamin K2. This vitamin is rare in the Western diet and hasn't received much mainstream attention. However... this powerful nutrient plays an essential role in many aspects of health. In fact, vitamin K2 may just be the "missing link" between diet and several killer diseases.

Calcium is an incredibly important mineral. It is more than just building material for bones and teeth, it plays a crucial role in all kinds of biological processes. The main function of Vitamin K is modifying proteins to give them the ability to bind calcium. In this way, it "activates" the calcium-binding properties of proteins. Vitamin K2 is used to activate proteins that regulate where calcium ends up in the body. Calcium build-up in the arteries around the heart is a huge risk factor for heart disease. For this reason, anything that can reduce this accumulation of calcium may help prevent heart disease. This is where vitamin K2 is believed to help, by helping to prevent calcium from being deposited in the arteries. A clinical study ****** showed that those who had the highest intake of Vitamin K2 were 52% less likely to develop calcification of the arteries, and had a 57% lower risk of dying from heart disease, over a 7-10 year period. More long-term controlled trials on K2 and heart disease are needed but there is a highly plausible biological mechanism for its effectiveness, and strong correlations found in observational studies. The importance of this can not be overstated... cardiovascular disease is the world's most common cause of death. It killed 14 million people in the year 2012 alone. A higher intake of vitamin K2 is strongly associated with a reduced risk of heart disease. 

Osteoporosis ("porous" bones) is a common problem in Western countries. It is especially common among elderly women and strongly raises the risk of fractures. As previously mentioned, Vitamin K2 plays a central role in calcium metabolism, the main mineral found in bones. Vitamin K2 activates the calcium-binding activity of two proteins called Matrix gla protein and osteocalcin, which help to build and maintain bones. There is considerable evidence from controlled trials that K2 has major benefits for bone health. The Japanese officially recommend vitamin K2 supplementation for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. Vitamin K2 plays an essential role in bone metabolism and studies suggest that it can help prevent osteoporosis and fractures.

Researchers have also speculated that Vitamin K2 may affect dental health. However, no human studies have tested this directly. Based on animal studies and the role vitamin K2 has in bone metabolism, it is reasonable to assume that it impacts dental health too. One of the main regulating proteins in dental health is osteocalcin, the same protein that is critical to bone metabolism and is activated by vitamin K2. Osteocalcin triggers a mechanism that stimulates growth of new dentin, which is the calcified tissue underneath the enamel on your teeth. Vitamin A and D are also believed to play an important role here, working synergistically with vitamin K2.

Cancer is a common cause of death in Western countries. Even though modern medicine has found many ways to treat it, new cancer cases are still on the rise. Therefore, finding effective prevention strategies is of utmost importance. Several studies have been done on Vitamin K2 and certain types of cancer. One clinical trial ****** suggested that vitamin K2 reduces recurrence of liver cancer and increases survival times. An observational study on 11,000 men also found that a high vitamin K2 intake was linked to a 63% lower risk of advanced prostate cancer. 
Edited from the article "Vitamin K2: Everything You Need to Know" by Joe Leech (MS - Masterís Degree in Nutrition & Dietetics), June 4, 2017
Vitamin K2 has a broad range of application in the prevention and reversal of many health conditions including...  
  • Helps Prevent Osteoporosis and Improves Bone Health
  • Helps Prevent Heart Disease
  • Makes Teeth Stronger
  • Decreases Inflammation     
  • May Help Autoimmune Conditions
  • Boosts Mitochondrial Function
  • May Help Some Cancers
  • Helps the Brain
  • Lowers the Risk of Dying From All Causes
  • Lowers Insulin Resistance
  • May Prevent Some of the Negative Effects of Statins
  • May Prevent Some of the Negative Effects of Vegetable Oils
Research has found that Vitamin K2 can help with the resolution of many diseases and health conditions.
