Our bodies are made up of trillions of cells. Each cell has a function. When a group of cells get together to perform a function, they are then called a tissue, and a group of related tissues comprise an organ.
While we know it’s important to have a healthy liver or a healthy heart, the level at which we truly live and die is at the cellular level. We should be focusing on having healthy liver cells or healthy heart cells. In fact, the quality of our life is determined by the health of our cells!
Cells and Cell Signaling
A cell is essentially a bag of salt water. (Remember that Star Trek episode when aliens referred to humans as “ugly bags of mostly water”? Even Data agreed that it was an accurate description of human beings!)
Inside each cell are little power plants called mitochondria [mai-tuh-kon-dree-uh]. These are found in every living cell of every animal (except bacteria). Mitochondria produce energy in the form of a molecule called ATP. And for every molecule of ATP that is generated, a pair of “redox signaling molecules” are also produced. During normal metabolism, these molecules are produced in a perfectly balanced pair: one is positive and the other is negative.
Scientists have known about these redox molecules for a long time, but for many decades believed that they were merely waste products of cellular energy production; much like carbon monoxide is a waste product of a car engine. You’re probably familiar with some of these molecules; they’re commonly referred to as “oxygen free radicals.”
Free radicals are extremely important in health and disease. Unbalanced and unregulated, they promote inflammation, disease, and aging. Diseases from allergies to diabetes to cancer all have their roots in inflammation promoted by unbalanced redox signaling molecules.
But when they’re in balance, redox signaling molecules are absolutely foundational to cellular health, and fundamental to life. In fact, if your body didn’t constantly produce them, you’d die within minutes!
Our cells are always under attack, by pollution and environmental toxins, poor food choices, bacteria and viruses, pharmaceutical drugs, sun damage, stress, physical injuries (even the tiniest bump, cut, or bruise), and just every day wear and tear. As cellular efficiency breaks down, we begin to lose these daily battles.
Normal, healthy cells are able to protect themselves, detect damage, and then either repair themselves or get replaced. Redox signaling molecules are essential to these cellular processes.
Redox signaling is one of the fastest growing areas of scientific research, with multiple journals and books dedicated to finding out more about these amazing molecules.
Dr. Gary Samuelson, PhD (Atomic and Medical Physics), in his book The Science of Healing Revealed: New Insights into Redox Signaling, writes:
“All health problems can be linked to damaged cells.”
“Redox Signaling Molecules are fundamental to the healing process.”
Research has made it quite clear that redox signaling molecules are critical to cellular health and rejuvenation.
Redox Signaling Molecules and Aging
There’s a process that every living being faces: AGING. As we age, we produce fewer redox molecules, and our cells become less efficient. If we presume that a healthy infant has 100% cellular efficiency and a 100% supply of redox signaling molecules, by the time that individual reaches age 70, her supply of redox molecules is down to about 10%.
Until now, there has never been any way to replenish these molecules. Scientists could create redox molecules in a lab, but they are so reactive that they always disintegrated within a few minutes. There was no way to keep them stable.
But today, we can get these molecules in a stabilized form that’s incredibly easy to use.
Completely non-toxic, native to the body, but diminishing with age, stabilized Redox Signaling Molecules work to:
- Replenish the body with these important cellular messenger
- Enhance the energy production and efficiency of every cell
- Stabilize cells and slow the aging process at the cellular level
- Increase the power of endogenous and supplemented antioxidants by 500%, thereby giving the immune system more of what it needs to fight inflammation and chronic disease
This powerful technology makes healing possible by coordinating communication among cells and vastly increasing the body’s own natural ability to fight aging and disease.
