NUPLUS – Ingredients Summary


Traditional Uses

Coix Fruit

(Main ingredient in NuPlus).  Extremely regenerative; powerful anti-oxidant, restores energy; counters diarrhea; helps eliminate excess water; strengthens defense and nervous systems; lowers cholesterol, stabilizes blood sugar levels, reduces muscle tension; expels poisons; beautifies skin.

Yellow Bean


(Second ingredient in NuPlus)   Delays aging, eases menopause (has good, harmless plant estrogen); beneficial to weight management; fights fatigue; helps regulate blood sugar; strengthens the spleen; lessens indigestion; and lowers harmful LDL cholesterol without affecting beneficial HDL (soy compound genestein helps block formation of fatty plaques, reducing a risk of heart disease).  (NOTE:  - Dr. Chen does not use indigestible soy protein ISOLATE. – see notes below)  Dr. Chen soaks the beans to start the sprouting process, which increases the nutritional benefits of NuPlus.  The sprouting process allows more of the enzymes, vitamins and minerals to be digested, plus it eases digestion and helps eliminate excess gas.

Chinese Yam

Counters coughing; helps correct hormonal imbalance, helps reduce inflammation; strengthens kidneys, stomach, spleen, lungs, adrenal glands, and reproductive system.  (Dr. Chen will use only Chinese Yam since Mexican Yam contains saponin, which is medicinal and can be poisonous  Dr. Chen has warned us of this source, telling us that it is a steroid containing cortisone.)
