Essential Building Blocks has the highest biological value of any known naturally-occurring protein. It features cross flow micro-filtered whey protein which naturally supplies branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) levels (25% of the protein is composed of BCAAs) and easy-to-absorb forms of amino acids (di-and tri-peptides), which may be excellent for absorption and nitrogen retention.*
Essential Building Blocks is perfect for those who want a convenient way to increase their daily protein intake. Mix it with water; add it to your favorite food (it’s great with pancakes, oatmeal, chili, etc.); or mix it with fruit and juice to make a delicious, protein-fortified shake!

Essential pH is a medical food formulated to provide enhanced, specialized nutritional support for patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, and includes macro- and micronutrients to address altered energetic function and liver detoxification. Featuring potassium citrate and sesame, this formula helps to promote alkalinization and support Phase II liver detoxification function. Essential pH also provides glycine and magnesium sulfate to support Phase II detoxification activities, as well as green tea catechins and mixed carotenoids to provide antioxidant protection against potentially harmful compounds generated during the natural detoxification process. Provided in a low-allergenic-potential rice protein concentrate baseâ€”which may be beneficial during times of increased detoxification burdenâ€”this formula provides well-rounded nutritional support.
