The Science Behind Redox Signalling


“What do we seek from food? It's not calories, nor is it volume or mass. It is, in fact, nutrition: micronutrients, which include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals.” - Brendan Brazier

Many of us live a hectic, fast-paced, overwhelming lifestyle that leaves us exhausted at the end of a typical day. Thus, it makes sense that we continually look for ways to find more energy, improve our concentration, and increase our vitality.

Additionally, our drive to survive one hectic day after another encourages us to purchase health products that advertise that they will make us feel better and have more energy. Moreover, we are not even that disappointed when these products do nothing to make us feel better. On the one hand, we are desperate to feel better, but on the other hand, we are so used to feeling tired and drained that it has become normal for us to feel this way.

Furthermore, under normal circumstances, our bodies are supposed to be able to extract all the necessary micronutrients from the food we eat. However, modern processing methodologies have reduced the quality and percentage of the nutritional value that we can obtain from common foods. Additionally, environmental toxins, genetically modified organisms, and extreme weather conditions all add to the reduced nutrition available for absorption by our bodies.

What is redox signalling?

We know that our bodies are made up of cells which contain mitochondria, specialised structures that power and control the normal cell functions. The mitochondria’s primary purpose is to break down carbohydrates and fatty acids to generate energy. If the mitochondria are functioning optimally, they produce redox signaling molecules known as Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS).

Furthermore, there are two ROS categories: oxidants which cause oxidant reactions and reductants which cause reductant reactions. It is important to note that for our bodies to function at optimum levels we need both ROS oxidants and reductants in equal numbers. It is also well known that as we age, and as stress and environmental contagions overwhelm us, they weaken our natural immunity, our healthy cellular function declines, and our body's redox signalling molecules go out of sync.

Maintaining a balance of our redox signalling molecules

Consequently, we understand the importance of ensuring that our ROS levels continuously stay at optimum levels. However, that begs the question: how do we help our body maintain the correct ROS balance?

The good news is that ASEA has developed a unique technology which can stabilise the active redox signalling molecules in an accessible form. In other words, the science of ASEA has allowed the company to suspend these potent molecules in a water-based solution which we can drink every day.

Essentially the ASEA Redox Supplement will help improve our bodies’ mitochondrial functions and bring intracellular communications back to their ability to perform optimally. Ergo, the consequences of drinking the recommended daily allowance of the Redox Supplement are that we can soon feel healthy, have more energy, and better manage a day of high stress and frenetic activity without feeling exhausted at the end of the day.
