Alpha ENF User Instructions
Alpha ENF is an elemental nutrient formula in powder form that contains a mixture of pure nutrients. the formula is best mixed in a blender with juices. The basic idea behind Alpha ENF is to supply a complete set of nutrients in their pure form. We recognized, of course, that pure nutrients are not delicious but they are good for you! The overall tastes are sweet, salty and a bit metallic. There tends to be a lingering salty after-taste. While it is tempting to add a lot of flavoring, coloring, sweetening and emulsifying additives to Alpha ENF to make it taste better, we have always resisted the temptation. Instead, we concentrated on the safety and effectiveness of the formula. For most people, Alpha ENF functions best if it is kept pure. The best way to use Alpha ENF is to mix the formula with fruit or vegetables juices in a blender
Pleasant drinks can be made with fruits, water, and Alpha ENF mixed in the blender, with ice if you like it cold. A blender quickly mixes the powder with any liquid, hot or cold. Alpha ENF will turn any fruit or vegetable juice into a complete meal. Many vegetable and fruit juices are compatible with Alpha ENF. For example, an easy mix is to addfrozen orange concentrate, Alpha ENF and water in the blender - 30 seconds at medium speed is usually enough for a good mix. Use unsweetened frozen juice concentrates. Canned fruits such as peaches or pears can be blended with Alpha ENF and ice to make a fruit "smoothie". Frozen berries - blueberries, raspberries and strawberries also make good Alpha ENF smoothies. Fresh fruits such as mango, cantaloupe and honeydew can be mixed in the blender with Alpha ENF (ice and water) to make refreshing, nourishing drinks.
Vegetable juices are also good mixed with Alpha ENF. If you make juice in a juicer, either vegetable or fruit, just add Alpha ENF at the end of the juicing run. If you are going to make larger quantities of juice and store it in the fridge, it is better not to add Alpha ENF to the juice to be stored, but wait until you serve the juice to add Alpha ENF. Alpha ENF can also be be added to soups after cooking, just before serving.
Serving Frequency and Size
Since the nutrients in Alpha ENF are readily available and are utilized quickly, it is a good idea to have frequent, smaller servings of Alpha ENF. For example, instead of having 100 grams three times a day, it is much better to have 50 grams, six times a day, every two hours. It is not a good idea to go more that three hours between servings of Alpha ENF, since you may experience a "power-down" as you run out of nutrients. If you alternate between Alpha ENF and meals, the timing is not so critical because you will have slower, sustained release of nutrients as you digest the food. Generally, experienced users of Alpha ENF adapt to the rapid absorption of nutrients and can gradually take larger amounts and go longer periods between Alpha ENF feedings.
Servings of Alpha ENF replace and supplement meals and can supply part of your daily nutrition. For example, you may start with Alpha ENF 50 grams three times a day for a total of 500 Calories per day. You would also have two meals to supply, for example, another 500 to 1000 Calories per day, depending on your needs and goals. The morning and late afternoon tend to be critical times in the day when Alpha ENF can provide good energy and appetite stability. The next critical time if you are working is coming home, tired and disinterested in food preparation; you will tend to seek a food reward as you relax and recover from the day's activities. Often a serving of Alpha ENF mixed with fruit or fruit juice will satisfy your immediate nutritional needs; later you can prepare an evening meal at a leisurely pace.
If you are using Alpha ENF for complete nutrition, start with 50 gram servings 6 times a day and increase until your caloric needs are met; 50 gm is about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of formula - mix in one or more cups (about 220 ml) of water.
One 50 gram serving is worth about 180 Calories. The recommended average daily intake for physically active adults who want to maintain current body weight is 1000 to 2000 Calories or 300 to 600 grams per day. Six 50 gm servings or 300 grams provides about 1100 Calories, a recommended daily minimum intake.
Smaller amounts of Alpha ENF should be used at first if you get symptoms from a 50 gram dose. Hypersensitive people have adapted by slowly increasing the dose they take. Experienced users can often boost the single serving size up to 100 grams per serving; this is equivalent to about 300 Calories.A day's Alpha ENF schedule might be:
Alpha ENF Alone For Clearing
When Alpha ENF is used as the sole source of nutrients, it is important to have 6 or more servings per day every 3 to 4 hours. The following schedule represents a minimum daily intake of 300 grams or 1000 Kcal divided into 6 feedings.
When higher caloric intakes are required, the serving size can be increased. There are 910 grams of formula per 1000 gm jars ( gross weight)

Converting Gram Weight and Volume Measurements
Instructions are based on gram weight measurements. The only way to accurately measure the formula servings is with a gram scale. Fortunately, this is seldom necessary. You can use standard kitchen measuring cups to approximate the gram servings. Conversions from weight to volume are never very accurate so you don't have to worry about being precise. For example, a 50 gram serving of Alpha ENF or Alpha PMX is somewhere between 1/3 cup and 1/2 cup. Use a plastic measuring scoop. If the scoop is rated at 1/3 cup, use a heaping serving of the formula. If the measuring scoop is 1/2 cup, a flat serving, a little under the mark will achieve about the same formula weight. One 1000 gram jar (gross weight) of Alpha ENF contains 910 grams of formula, enough for 3 days complete nutrition at 300 gram per day.
Most Alpha ENF side effects can be resolved by adding more water, reducing the serving size, and increasing the frequency of servings.
