ReCODE Protocol Core Kit
If you’ve read “The End of Alzheimer’s, you know that Dr. Bredesen expressed hope that a supplement company would eventually consolidate all of the nutrients he recommends daily into one easy-to-follow protocol.
Hope has arrived!
Dr. Bredesen, one of the world’s leading neurologists, partnered with LifeSeasons to craft an ideal supplement regimen for his ReCODE Protocol. In addition to reducing the number of pills you’d need to take, this consolidated kit is an incredible value compared to the retail cost of purchasing all of the recommended nutrients separately.
Working in tandem with LifeSeasons, Dr. Bredesen created the ReCODE Protocol Core Kit to offer the most complete protocol for cognitive health.
ReCODE Protocol Core Kit contains one (1) each of:
ReCODE Protocol Morning Balance Powder

Promote cognition and memory by providing support for brain signaling and neuron building, as well as exogenous ketones to fuel energy production. Add in dietary fiber and probiotics for gut health and immune response, as well as key botanicals for circulation, and it’s a morning ritual that you won’t want to miss.* (Learn more.)
ReCODE Protocol Evening Balance Powder

Formulated to support neurotransmission, gut health, and immune response, this easy-to-take powder will become your favorite nightcap.* (Learn more.)
ReCODE Protocol Daily Probiotics
The brain-gut connection is now widely recognized as a key aspect of wellness. Dr. Bredesen selected specific probiotics to support a healthy microbiome and promote cognitive health. * (Learn more.)
ReCODE Protocol Daily Omega-3s
With dozens of scientific studies showing the benefit of fish oil for neural building, healthy response to inflammation, and circulatory health, EPA and DHA were a must to include in the protocol.* (Learn more.)
ReCODE Protocol Daily Multivitamin
Dr. Bredesen has specific vitamins, dosages, and forms of nutrients that he insists must be in the daily multivitamin supplement in the ReCODE protocol. This formulation is designed to meet daily needs and boost cognitive performance.* (Learn more.)
We all know that stress, pollution, poor dietary choices, and exposure to harmful chemicals create oxidative stress. What many of us don’t realize is that the brain creates an abundance of free radicals just in the course of normal functioning. For that reason, ReCODE Daily Antioxidants are absolutely critical for anyone wanting to protect brain health and support cognition.* (Learn more.)
ReCODE Protocol Supplement Formulas
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Dale Bredesen, MD, has researched and recommended L-Citrulline. Why wasn’t it used in the ReCODE products?
A: L-citrulline is a potent booster of nitric oxide, but only when it is delivered in very high milligram doses. Our expert formulators worked alongside Dr. Bredesen to identify alternative nitric oxide boosters like beetroot, ginger, and vitamin C to achieve better results.
Q: Why was ubiquinone used in the products instead of ubiquinol?
A: Both ubiquinone and ubiquinol are effective isomers of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) supplementation. Hundreds of scientific studies have shown that ubiquinone promotes energy production and neutralizes free radicals.
Q: Dale Bredesen, MD, has researched and recommended MCT oil. Why wasn’t it used in the ReCODE products?
A: Dr. Bredesen is indeed a proponent of MCT oil. In formulating the ReCODE products, Dr. Bredesen and our expert formulators identified potassium caprylate as an even better choice: it is not only more stable but has a higher density concentration of MCT.
Q: Dale Bredesen, MD, has researched and recommended Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus brevis and Bifidobacterium lactis. Why weren’t these probiotics used in the ReCODE products?
A: Although Dr. Bredesen has recommended Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus brevis and Bifidobacterium lactis in the past, he and our product formulators chose to use Lactobacillus helveticus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and Bifidobacterium breve instead. These three probiotic strains provide similar or superior gut health benefits and have consistently proven to have a stronger stability profile. Shelf-stable ingredients help to protect the potency and integrity of the ReCODE supplements.
Q: Why do some of the individual ingredient doses in the ReCODE product formulas differ from the supplement doses recommended by Dale Bredesen, MD, in his book The End of Alzheimer’s?
A: Dr. Bredesen worked directly with LifeSeasons to create and formulate each of the ReCODE supplement products. Each ingredient was evaluated for its effectiveness, potency, stability, and cost. In a number of instances, ingredients were changed because a better source was identified.
Q: The ReCODE supplements core kit contains six different products: Morning Balance powder, Evening Balance powder, Daily Probiotics, Daily Antioxidants and Daily Omega-3s. How was the ingredient mix determined and why were they formulated in this way?
A: Ingredients come in many different forms, and often drive product development based on their stability requirements and synergistic functions. The ingredients Dr. Bredesen wanted to include in the core kit were initially grouped based on form—oils needed to be in soft gels, larger-dose dry ingredients needed to be in capsules or powder. Taste and convenience were also taken into consideration. Ultimately, six separate core products were developed to encompass all of the ingredients needed to support those on the Bredesen treatment protocol.
Q: Do all of the products work safely together?
A: As with any new dietary supplement or over-the-counter medication, always consult your healthcare provider before taking any new product.
Q: Should I be concerned about any of the ingredients interacting with other medications I may be taking?
A: As with any dietary supplement or prescription medication, do not take ReCODE supplements without first consulting your healthcare practitioner, especially if you are pregnant, nursing, or are under medical supervision for any reason.
Q. Does the ReCODE Daily Probiotics need to be refrigerated?
A. The three probiotic strains used in ReCODE Daily Probiotics, Lactobacillus helveticus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and Bifidobacterium breve, have strong shelf-stability profiles. However, we recommend storing ReCODE Daily Probiotics in the refrigerator after opening for best results.
