Nucleic Acid RNA For Bodybuilding

Nucleic acids of the various kinds found within the nuclei of all living cells are the fundamental substances used in clinical investigation into aging and other aspects of human health. These nutrients are essential to life. They include the nucleoproteins ribonucleic acid (RNA) and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), discovered by science to contain the very blueprints by which all living matter knows how and when to reproduce itself. DNA contains the master blueprint; RNA is the messenger which carries the pattern to cells throughout the body. A vast amount of scientific research is now concentrated upon these fantastic elements which constitute the very basis of life itself. And it is through further knowledge of DNA and RNA discovered by microbiologists that the entire scientific world expects major breakthroughs in the understanding of nil life processes.


As stated, the nucleic acids DNA and ENA are the cellular components which control heredity and subsequent ability of the body to keep reproducing its inherited patterns. But more - these strands of acid within the cell nucleus also govern all life processes in health and disease. All organs and tissues of the body appear to undergo some form of aging. With the passage of time, many of the functional parts of the organs may be replaced by nonfunctional fibrous tissue. The cells or organs may degenerate through development of fat, accumulation of pigment, formation of vacuoles, or because of hyaline changes in the cell.

On the other hand, cells may proliferate, rather than degenerate, and produce a larger than normal organ, which may be either harmless or cancerous.

One of the most obvious effects of aging is the wrinkling of skin. In aging skin, there is a decrease in elasticity, and a thinning due to loss of fat and water. Lines and wrinkles in the face and hands become more prominent. The backs of the hands, highly visible indicators of age, become shiny, spotted with lentigus (brownish pigmented areas), and perhaps may develop senile keratoses (horny, wart-like growths).

Why do all these changes occur? Because the cells which contain the blueprints for the formation of the various organs are tired and worn and no longer able to maintain the pattern they inherited.

To maintain youthfulness one must find ways to help the body's DNA and ENA renew themselves so as to keep their patterns of genetic information etched clean and fresh. Work already done with DNA and ENA and related metabolites demonstrates the importance of these substances to the quality, as well as length, of life. They point not only to a longer life free of disease, but to the marvelous quality of being young as long as you live.

Aging involves decay of DNA which, in turn, leads to an improperly formed messenger, RNA. Since RNA is responsible for the formation of enzymes needed by the body, these enzymes are not formed properly, or perhaps they may not be formed at all. If they are not formed properly, obviously they cannot have normal metabolic function.

RNA, especially when combined with metabolically associated B Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids and Sugars, will enter the cell and aid in normal regeneration of the decayed metabolic organization of the cell, and in so doing will bring about normal enzyme synthesis and activation.

The results obtained by using an oral formula with a dietary regimen rich in nucleic acids have been highly important. Basic ingredients of the oral formula are RNA, Amino Acids, B-Complex Vitamins, Minerals, Sugars and Lipids. Dosages of between 30 milligrams and 300 milligrams daily, plus B-Complex factors in the form of Vitamin capsules were used.

There appears to be no absolute contraindications to the use of nucleic acid, particularly RNA, in therapy. Gout or high serum uric arid levels are relative contraindications, but even in these circumstances RNA-based therapy can be given as long as adequate management is employed. Lower RNA doses of ½ grains have been used in these cases.

The most immediate effect from using these substances even in dosages as low as 30 milligrams of RNA daily, was an increase in energy and well-being. Higher doses produced this effect as early as the second or third day.

The most striking effects are observed on the skin of the face. Again, within the limits tested, the higher the dosage, the more rapidly these effects were observed. The first results observed were a healthier, rosier appearance and a simultaneous apparent smoothing of the skin of the face, but without any actual change in wrinkles and lines. This occurred within the first or second week of treatment, usually within the first week.

When dosages as low as ½ grain to 1 grain of RNA were given daily, or five days each week, these early changes occurred in about two or three weeks. When doses of 5 grains daily, five days weekly were used, the changes occurred within the first week. After one or two months of treatment, sometimes earlier, there not only was an increase in smoothness and color of the skin, but lines and wrinkles began to diminish also.

Wrinkles in the forehead were often the first to decrease in depth. lines around the eyes took longer to decrease in depth, and though there was not a total disappearance of any wrinkles or lines, in the large majority of cases there was a distinctly noticeable decrease in their depth. Skin tightened, as well, and recovered moisture.

Skin on the back of the hand improved in smoothness in the vast majority of cases in three or four months. Roughness of skin of the elbows and other joints was lessened.

One standard test of aging of skin is the return to normal condition of pinched skin of the back of the hand. The treatment produced, after three or four months,m a quicker return to normal condition of the pinched skin in the majority of patients. In 15 patients, including nine women and six men, varying in ages from 40 to 71 years, the pinch-return time was improved by 30 per cent to 40 per cent. These patients were taking 5 grains of RNA daily, 5 days a week, for three months, along with a therapeutic B-complex capsule.

My conclusions are that RNA is the super catalyst - and if combined with Niacin it should be even more effective. I feel that RNA should be included in all Vitamin, mineral, protein formulas.

Vince Gironda On Vitamin C

Try increasing your Vitamin C intake to help you release excess fluids. 300-500 mg. of Vitamin C daily are as effective as medicinal diuretics. Medical experts recommend large amounts of Vitamin C to counteract the harmful effects of air pollution. Long recognized as a cold fighter, recent research proves that adequate amounts of Vitamin C help prevent cancer and heart disease. 1,000 milligrams per day is the minimum recommended dosage.

Rheo Blair Protein - How to mix the protein drink

A man normally uses the 1/3-cup measuring scoop filled level
with Blair's Instant Protein (or the 1/4-cup scoop filled heaping)
mixed with a glassful of liquid. A lady normally uses the 1/4-cup
scoop filled level. Using the blender, a man mixes four of the
1/3-cup scoopfuls (same as one and one third cupfuls) to the
quart; a lady uses four 1/4-cup scoopfuls, or a cupful, to the quart.

The 1/4-cup scoop filled level with protein equals approximately
18 grams of protein; mixed with a glassful of half-and-half it
comes to about 26 grams. The 1/3-cup scoop filled level (or the
1/4-cup scoop filled heaping) yields about 24 grams of protein;
mixed with a glassful of half-and-half it's approximately 32
grams of protein.

The preferred liquid for mixing the protein is half-and-half, and
for a good reason. Nature seems to indicate that protein and fat
should be taken in even balance. Milk with 3% protein is
balanced with an equal amount of fat. Likewise eggs, meat, etc.

Blair's Instant Protein is extracted from milk and eggs without
this normally occurring fat; both eggs and milk were defatted in
processing. Whole milk is normally balanced by itself, so if
we mix the protein with milk we throw off this natural balance.
However, by mixing the protein with half whole milk and half
heavy cream we restore some of the fat removed during
processing and we achieve a product more normally balanced
as to proportions of protein and fat.

Remember, you are not actually drinking half-and-half when
you follow this suggestion. The protein with half-and-half
makes a "milk" drink which is equivalent to whole milk in
the balance of protein and fat. It is thick and creamy
because it is concentrated.

The "half-and-half" sold by most dairies is not a true "one half"
plus "one half" but it can be used. We prefer to mix our own,
using one-half whole milk and one-half heavy (whipping)
cream. We recommend using raw milk and raw cream if it is

Do not be alarmed that we suggest using cream, for cream
is not necessarily fattening for all people. By eliminating from
the diet the high carbohydrate foods (those high in starch
and sugar) you may find the body uses fats for a superior
source of energy. Fats in the diet often tend to burn off
accumulated body fat.

This protein drink made with half-and-half is delicious and
tasty, especially if you make sure that the milk and cream

Note: Rheo Blair A.K.A Irvin Johnson was a famous nutritionist.
Health faddists,movie stars,celebrities and professional
bodybuilders from around the country flocked to him for
his expertise and his high quailty protein products.

All the great bodybuilders of the 50's, 60's and 70's (Arnold,
Frank Zane, Larry Scott, etc.) followed this guy's advice
and got in the biggest and best shape of ther lives. He
had the secret of achieving steroid-like results without drugs.

Rheo rationalized that the highest quality protein in terms of
supporting human growth and well-being would be found
closer to home - in mother's milk. It is the food that has
been honed by millions of years of evolution to nourish
newborns and carry them through their most rapid period
of growth. Plus, enzymes found in milk, such as colostrum
and lactoferrin, were believed to have powerful immune
system-enhancing properties. His famous protein powder
was based on the amino acid ratios in mothers milk.

As Rheo Blair products began to fill the shelves of health
food stores stories abounded of the amazing physical
transformations he performed on hundreds of "hopeless
cases," regularly turning 97-pound weaklings into
strapping men by way of his protein and a vigorous
volume-based weight training routine.

Similar results were being reported by even advanced
bodybuilders on the Blair system. In an article in the
May 1967 issue of Iron Man magazine a bodybuilder
wrote, 'After being on Rheo's program for only three
weeks, I made more gains than I had in the past six
years. I put almost a half-inch on my arms. And after
two months I [put on] almost 20 pounds [of pure muscle]."

Blair died an untimely death in the early 1980's, some
say his protein powder was better then anything on the
market today. But almost forgotten are his amino acid
capsules that bodybuilders did anything they could to
get their hands on, because of their almost magic muscle building and fat buring effects.

Don't Take Supplements For More Than Five Days

Vince, I take all the diet supplements that are needed for building super muscle size such as protein powders, vitamins and minerals, but I am still not achieving the progress that I feel I could be making.

Your advice would be welcome.

I feel you shouldn’t take supplements more than five days in a row.

A brief rest of two days to detoxify and then you can go back to them. In this way the body will grab all the nutrients when they are available without super saturating and over toxifying.

Single Vitamins Cannot Work

I am 15 years old and I have been bodybuilding for about 1 ½ years. I weigh 175. You should receive my order for your arm course very soon in the future.

I have a question. I hope you will please answer. I saw an add about Formulas B3 and B7. It said in one of the testimonials that it is a substitute for anabolic steroids but it is natural. Do you know if this stuff works?

Does it hurt your body in any way? I don’t ever want to use anything that would harm my body in any way.

Single vitamins (Mono Substances) cannot work, they need catalysts to be utilized.

If you’re interested in producing male hormones in your body, do as the fellows in my gym are doing.

1-3 dozen raw fertile eggs mixed in ½ & ½ cream and milk beaten, and taken every 3 hours will produce an anabolic effect by putting you in a positive nitrogen balance.

It’s as easy as that. The effect is really miraculous.
