Modere & Asea
Jost is an affiliate of companies including Modere, who blend Chinese and Western herbs and nutritional supplements, and Asea who have tapped into a cell communicating discovery. He uses the products daily himself, and they work. The links in each product take you to the relevant site to order directly.
Well-Being is produced by Modere, who managed to get the rights to the legendary Emperors Formula of ancient China. It is in tablet form. It includes ginseng (a key ingredient in dementia prevention in Asian countries) plus 3 other powerhouse top-shelf asian and Indian herbs, ashwagandha, astralagus and rehmania, all of which have incredible effects including improved focus, energy boosting and anti-ageing. I can’t believe this formula, once reserved for Emperors is now available to everyone. I’ve been using it daily for over 20 years and if you are only going to take one supplement, make it this one.
This is what we all look for now and Immune Health draws on herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine but also Western herbal medicine. It’s a powerful formula that supports the immune system. Panax ginseng benefits include immune building as well antioxidant, good cognitive function, energy boosting and it can lower blood sugar. It is also used traditionally for erectile dysfunction. Echinacea helps relieve the symptoms of colds and flu as well as upper respiratory tract infections. This is an immune health and wellness booster.
Anything that can help digestion is badly needed for our lifestyle and PhytoGreens is digestive health central. Because everything is connected, this helps your immunity too. It has 10 phytonutrient-rich marine and leafy greens: spirulina, chlorella, kale, green tea, parsley, spinach, barley grass, rosemary, aloe vera, dandelion. And 8 phytonutrient-rich fruits: lime, avocado, apple, pineapple, acerola, grape seed, bilberry, papaya, as well as phytonutrient-rich Asian ginseng root, licorice root, eleuthero root and shiitake mushroom. Plus avocado oil, digestive aids and pre and probiotics. It’s a super-superfood!
Omega-3 essential fatty acids are necessary for health but they can’t be made by the body so it’s critical to get them from food or drink. Krill is a source of superior omega-3 fatty acids that the body absorbs better than traditional fish oils. It supports vital bodily processes, helps treating certain diseases like mild arthritis or mild osteoarthritis, improves mental and physical performance including heart health, and brain function as well as eyes, joints and skin, and nervous system health. Krill oil can also help support joint flexibility. It is sourced from sustainably harvested Antarctic Krill oil.
Collagen plays a key role in building and supporting bones and cartilage, skin, hair, eyes, nails and the digestive system. It is an anti-ageing supplement as it’s responsible for the elasticity of skin and fluidity of joints. With age the body decreases the production of collagen and this is where supplementation comes into it. PURE is a super nutraceutical, a tasty liquid that contains all the benefits of natural type II collagen drawn from chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid. It supports active joints and healthy ageing of joints and skin.

Asea is pretty amazing. It works via Redox Signaling to improve cellular communication because cells that can communicate effectively can fight off health threats. So it improves the health of every cell and system in your body. It was designed as an athletic supplement and supports antioxidant and immune processes. I’ve tried and tested this product and experienced some astonishing results firsthand. I use Redox daily.
The theory behind Redox and Renu is that genes give life-sustaining instructions to cells, and cells carry out those instructions to keep you alive and healthy. As we age, cell communication breaks down, the signal weakens, and gene expression can be disrupted. Regulating gene activity with redox signalling molecules keeps cellular communication strong. It passes my taste & try test. I can feel it doing its thing every time I take it.
Renu28. FACE LIFT Asea liquid works on the inside and Renu is the external counterpart. It’s a multipurpose skin-priming, age-fighting, cellular-rejuvenating gel for the whole body. It starts processes in the cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite and wrinkles, to calm red and dry skin, and ease temporary muscle discomfort. I use it on joints and my training injuries and it works. Plenty of people love it as an anti-ageing product for the whole body and face.
