Dr. Rinse’s Original Formula

Dr Rinse Formula



The RINSE FORMULA for Cardiovascular Disease

What follows is the exact formula Dr. Jacobus Rinse gave to his daughter in 1988, when he was 88 years old.


1 tbsp soy lecithin granules

1 tbsp raw wheat germ

1 tbsp brown sugar (or blackstrap molasses or honey)

1 tbsp debittered brewer’s yeast

1 tbsp cold-pressed safflower oil (or sunflower or corn oil)

1/2 tsp bone meal powder (or supplement of 500 mg calcium orotate and

500 mg magnesium orotate)


Mix the above and sprinkle over cereal, or mix with yogurt, or stir into juice, etc. Some people may need to start with smaller amounts of yeast and wheat germ and increase the amount gradually.


In addition, the following supplements should be included, straight from Dr. Rinse’s directions:


1 multi-vitamin and mineral tablet

1,000 milligram (mg) vitamin C (ascorbic acid or calcium ascorbate)

50 mg vitamin B6

300 mg magnesium orotate, or magnesium oxide, or magnesium hydroxide

50 mg zinc orotate, or zinc gluconate, or 30 mg zinc oxide

200 IU vitamin E (take before bedtime, several hours after a meal).

50 mcg selenium


Note that vitamin E is especially important when consuming vegetable oils. Not everyone chooses to use the sweetener or brewer’s yeast.


His daughter writes:  


“It is my understanding that the things that are absolutely essential are lecithin, safflower or sunflower oil and vitamin E. Apparently the lecithin and linoleic acid (from the oil) combine to form the key to dissolving cholesterol deposits and preventing them from forming. When taking the oil, my father said that vitamin E is essential to prevent free-radical formation from oxidation. I believe the specific vitamins are related to various chemical reactions in the body.


“At one time there was a pre-packaged mix available commercially (my father had no financial interest in this although he did provide some assistance to them at no charge) called “The Dr Rinse Breakfast”. Since there were obvious issues in using oils in that context, they opted to grind sunflower seeds and use that instead of the oil. I believe that my father thought that was a reasonable substitution. I've heard of using ground flax seed also but don't know the specifics of the quantity of linoleic acid in that. It seems to have helped me and I know my father used to receive many letters from grateful users of his ‘breakfast.’”
