Deanna Protocol FAQs
How do you follow the Deanna Protocol using Simplesa Products?
What is the Difference between Simplesa AAKG+ Core Powder and Simplesa AAKG Powder?
Simplesa AAKG+ Core Powder is the core of the Deanna Protocol. I combines Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (AAKG), Ubiquinol (CoQ10), GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) and Niacin (Non-Flush) into one. The Ubiquinol (CoQ10), GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) and Niacin (Non-Flush) are in the full dosages and the AAKG is set at the minimum recommended dosage per day at 9 grams a day. The reason for this is to allow each individual to increase his or her AAKG dosage up to the recommend 18 grams at his or her own pace. The Simplesa pure AAKG Powder is used in conjunction with the Simplesa AAKG+ Core Powder to increase AAKG levels, without increase the additional nutrients.
