Energique’s Intact Kidney is a raw tissue concentrate, processed using a method called lyophilization. During the process of lyophilization, a freeze-drying technique, the raw tissue is concentrated in the first solute phase, never reaching the freezing point; however, the second phase (solvent) remains below freezing during the entire process. As a result of using low temperatures, there is less molecular movement, and therefore, a minimum amount of loss.
Raw tissue concentrates are used mainly for their rich nutrient content. Lyophilization is a concentrating process, not an extraction method. It is superior to an extraction process, in that, in an extraction method, some of the desired nutrients are lost.
Each capsule of Energique’s Intact Kidney contains 435 mg of raw kidney concentrate (not an extract), of bovine source.
