               “cellular determinants.” Current laboratory methods
               have confirmed that Protomorphogen  brand extracts
               contain minerals, nucleotides (the components of

               Cytosol  Brand Extracts
               Cytosol  brand extracts are derived from the
               cytoplasm of selected organs and glands through a
               process similar to the Protomorphogen  extraction
               process. However, these extracts contain cellular
               factors such as hormone precursors and synergistic
               cofactors that are the biochemical building blocks
               essential to cellular metabolism.
