If you want to live younger longer it helps to have healthy cells.
Sounds kind of obvious, I know, and your body is equipped to keep you healthy. Except…it’s not really designed to deal with the kind of stress we live in in today’s world, and unless you take specific action to protect yourself your cells will not be healthy.
Every day we are bombarded with toxic materials through our skin care products, the foods we eat, what we choose to drink,and the cleaning products we use. These are all sources of toxins over which we have some control. Unfortunately, there are many others which we can’t control. For example, the air we breathe is loaded with stuff that is adverse to our health from gasoline fumes to carpets, drapes and paints that put out nasty gases. Then there is our water supply, full of residue from medications, manufacturing wastes, run off from the chemicals we use to keep lawns and golf courses green…the list goes on.
Another big source of stress on our bodies is the sun. In the normal way of things your skin uses anti-oxidants
to protect you from sun damage. However, over exposure along with an insufficient supply of anti-oxidants makes us more prone to sun damage and skin cancers. If you have a sensitive red-haired complexion like mine the sun is even more of a menace than it is for most people. Sun screens can help, but have their own side effects. Many of them contain toxic ingredients, and have only a partial ability to protect you even when you use them regularly…which lets face it most of us aren’t that consistent.
And then there is the stress of daily life…need I say more?
So back to healthy cells. Every day your body takes stock of your cells and identifies those which are damaged or in poor health. Then it either works to repair them or if they are beyond hope, tells them to self-destruct so that new cells can be put in their place.
Little kids have no problem repairing and replacing cells. It’s like their equipment is still new and shiny and efficient. That’s why when they get a scrape, or break a bone or have any kind of injury, they’re up and around a lot sooner than most adults.
Unfortunately as we age, so does our ability to repair and replace cells.
As a result we end up with a body that has undetected, but damaged, cells, and when they replicate, the result is more damaged cells all of which increases the chances for disease while speeding up the aging process. Not exactly the result any of us would wish for.
But do we have a choice?
Of course we do.
- Minimize your exposure to toxins. Read labels, become familiar with common toxins and resolve to only use clean, green products.
- Up your intake of anti-oxidants. Toxins, stress and poor eating habits result in the production of free radicals which are damaging to your cellular health. Anti-oxidants counter the impact of these free radicals and assist the healing process. Anti-oxidant rich foods include berries, apples, plums, red beans, nuts and some spices such as cinnamon and cloves.
- Stimulate production of your own internal anti-oxidants. Your body makes its own anti-oxidants such as glutathione, catalase and SOD all of which are significantly more powerful than the ones you ingest in food. These so called endogenous anti-oxidants help eliminate free radicals and remove toxins. Exercise, certain supplements such as the B vitamins, Vitamins C & E, and sulphur rich foods such as broccoli , kale and cauliflower can help.
- Drink ASEA. ASEA is a bottle of redox signaling molecules which are essential for good cellular communication, improving the detection of cellular damage and promoting their repair or replacement as needed. Studies show ASEA improves the efficiency of your endogenous anti-oxidants by 500% to 800%. Your body makes these fabulous little redox signaling molecules, but makes fewer and fewer of them as you age. The only other place to get them is from a bottle of ASEA.
