Alpha PMX Ingredients
Elemental nutrient formulas represent the ultimate reduction of food,
replacing food intake with a chemically defined set of nutrients. Alpha PMX is
formulated by assembling nutrients into modules that supply energy,
electrolytes, antioxidants, phosphate, vitamins, minerals,
neurotransmitter substrates and amino acids (protein building blocks). Alpha PMX
is an oil free version of Alpha ENF with increased amino acids.
Energy is supplied by in Alpha PMX by carbohydrates. Digestion reduces
complex carbohydrates to simple sugars, which act as fuel in our body. - glucose
and fructose are the basic sugars. Maltodextrin is hydrolyzed starch in granular
form with glucose polymers of different molecular weights - presenting
energy in this form reduces the osmotic pressure of the formula (an advantage)
and provides for variable absorption rates of glucose.
The electrolyte module consists of salts dissolved in water which form
the basis of blood and cellular function. Sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium,
magnesium, phosphate and chloride are the essential electrolytes which should
arrive in proportion to each other and in the right amounts for proper body
function. Water is essential and the intake amount determines the concentration
of electrolytes in the blood and tissue fluids. The right amount of water is
important - more is almost always better than less. The Alpha formulations
provide a balanced set of electrolytes. Phosphate is essential to energy
storage and transfer. Vitamin C, beta carotene, vitamin E and selenium scavenge
free oxygen radicals.
Lipids (Fat) are omitted from the formula and are added to the
powder as the formula is blended with water and/or juices.
Amino AcidsInstead of proteins, free amino acids are provided in the Alpha Nutrition
series. A complete set of the nine essential amino acids is complemented by 10
of the non-essential amino acids. One of the therapeutic secrets of Alpha
PMX is the avoidance of proteins or pieces of proteins known as peptides.
Proteins are the most reactive molecules in food allergic disease. Staple foods
such as milk, eggs, wheat and meat contain proteins that frequently causes
immune responses and are the basic problem in delayed patterns of food allergy.
Alpha PMX avoids the protein problems by using a balanced set of pure
amino acids instead of proteins or hydrolyzed proteins. Amino acids are the real
nutrients derived from proteins by digestion of food. Amino acids do not trigger
immune responses. Free amino acids are much more expensive than protein powders,
and hydrolyzed proteins but freeing the immune system from protein challenge is
well-worth the cost.
Some of these amino acids are not destined to be included in body proteins
but will be used as neurotransmitters. Tyrosine and phenylalanine, for example,
are converted to dopamine, noradrenalin and adrenalin. Tryptophan is converted
into serotonin. Glycine itself is a major neurotransmitter in the spinal cord.
Glutamate is another important amino acid - neurotransmitter.
Sources: The idea of an elemental nutrient formula is to present
nutrients in a pure or near-pure form so that food source contaminants are
avoided. The safflower oil is the only food ingredient in its native state;
providing free fatty acids is not an affordable option. Maltrodextrin is
hydrolyzed corn starch and is generally tolerated by people with allergy to corn
since the protein antigens in corn are generally not present. Microcellulose is
the fiber component form plant sources and provides enough bulk that bowel
movements still occur even with prolonged feeding of Alpha PMX. Microcellulose
reduces digestive symptoms overall and there is no known allergy. The vitamin
and mineral nutrients are presented with US Pharmaceutical certified purity and
are chosen for the optimal solubility in water - this provides quick mixing and
maximum nutrient absorption. The amino acids are individually added to an Amino
Acid Premix and are pure, l-form amino acids.
No hydrolyzed proteins are found in Alpha Nutrition formulations. The
formulas are hypoallergenic and have been tolerated by people with extreme
sensitivity to many if not most foods. Hypoallergenic means low allergy
potential but not zero potential; we doubt that a zero-allergy product is
feasible and is not required by people who live in the real world and are
exposed to thousands of potential allergens every day. Tolerance is not
guaranteed and any potential user with a history of anaphylactic reactions
to foods should introduce Alpha ENF or PMX with caution and with medical
