The GenoType 1 Hunter Diet is designed to help Hunters burn high-quality calories
while calming and soothing their hyper-reactive digestive and immune systems
(more about this in a moment). So just like that high-end sports car, which lasts
a lot longer if you give it high-octane gas, Hunters will see enormous benefits
in how they age if they eat right, get the right types of exercise, and use GenoSpecific
Hunter Activator is designed to offset the catabolic (cellular breakdown) tendencies that can cause many of the common health problems seen in the Hunter GenoType. These catabolic waste products are often the result of insufficient cellular detoxification (ubiquinylation), a common tendency in Hunters.
Hunter Activator Supplement Strategy:
Holy Basil: Holy Basil is regarded as one of the most important plants
used in Ayurvedic medicine. Over the past decade or so a number of
scientific studies have been made regarding this plant. Holy basil
may help counteract the effects of stress. Holy Basil supports healthy cortisol,
insulin metabolism, and blood sugar already in the normal range*
Turmeric/Curcumin: The active ingredients in Curcuma longa are a group
of plant substances called curcuminoids. Known collectively as "curcumin", curcuminoids
have demonstrated potent antioxidant properties in scientific studies. Curcuminoids
benefit joints and other tissues by helping to neutralize free-radicals. Through
its antioxidant mechanisms, curcumin supports colon health, exerts neuroprotective
activity, and helps maintain a healthy cardiovascular system.
Rhodiola: Rhodiola rosea has been categorized as an adaptogen by Russian researchers due to its observed ability to increase resistance to a variety of chemical, biological, and physical stressors. Rhodiola rosea appears to offer generalized resistance to physical, chemical, and biological stressors.

Chinese Scute (Scutellaria biacalensis): Chinese Skullcap flavonoids
is a member of the mint family and has long been used in traditional Chinese
herbal medicine. Traditionally it has been used as a digestive aid and to normalize
an over-active digestive system. Scutellaria has been shown to decrease inflammatory
cytokine production from human mast cells (immune system hormones which ramp
up inflammation). Scutellaria also has a cell-regulating effect, encouraging
the body to more efficiently remove cells which have become dysfunctional, either
though age or malformation.
Magnesium Butyrate: Butyrate is a short chain fatty acid that is a potent
detoxifier of ammonia and neurotoxins. It encourages the formation of friendly
bacteria in the gut. Butyrate is also one of the few dietary nutrients that has
an epigenetic (gene regulatory effect) due to its influence of DNA winding and
unwinding (histone acetylation and deacetylation).
Arabinoglactan: Larch AG has been shown to increase short-chain fatty acids, decrease colonic ammonia levels, increase the numbers of beneficial bacteria in the colon, as well as improve the immune response. These favorable effects of Larch AG may positively modulate many of these too-common intestinal disorders.
Bifidobacterium, Saccromyces and Lactobacillus Probiotics: These friendly
bacteria have positive effects upon the gut lining and help control bacteria
overgrowth. Saccromyces, actually a yeast, is a rich source of nucleotides (genetic

fish such as Anchovy and Sardine--two Beneficial fish for Hunter GenoType.
