A patented process extracts the critical nutritional fluid from the white of an egg at the protoembryonic stage, so we called it ProtoEmbryonic Stage Extract (PESE). The extract not only provided a mechanism of rapid transport of very critical nutrients, but also contained Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor, which is most probably responsible for the amino acids and peptides to be utilized in the right manner, by 'directing' their correct use by the body. The growth factor is also responsible for nurturing the body's own stem cells both differentiated, and undifferentiated (pluripotent). Common amino acid formulations do not contain this growth factor, and may not be utilized by the brain in the most efficient manner.
