Cellular health is the ability of the body’s cells to regenerate and perform their specified functions. Healthy cells regenerate, or multiply, through a division process called mitosis.
A healthy cell can divide repeatedly, while also performing its day-to-day tasks. Specific functions are determined early in a cells life and dictate where it will work.
Wherever they are assigned, they will be responsible for the health of that organ and, consequently, the body.
Additionally, all cells play a role in the immune system because they all have extracellular receptors that are designed to detect foreign substances and diseased cells. In this way, they are somewhat responsible for preventing illness and disease.
Can Cells Become Unhealthy?
Lack of cellular health is at the root of many prevalent diseases. Autoimmune diseases are a direct consequence of cells mistaking the body as foreign. The cells send signals that danger is present, and the immune system begins a defensive attack, which leads to inflammation, organ damage, and pain. Other diseases are the result of intracellular processes failing to metabolize substances like insulin.
How Do Cells Become Unhealthy?
This is certainly an area that researchers have only scratched the service of. However, current research reflects that there are both environmental and genetic factors at play. Cells can become damaged by exposure to toxins such as drugs.
The endoplasmic reticulum inside of all cells is designed to deal with toxins and does so efficiently. If the toxin, such as nicotine, is presented repeatedly and in large quantities, the cell has to adjust to survive. This causes the endoplasmic reticulum to grow and other vital organelles in the cell to shrink.
The result is cells that can deal with large volumes of toxins, but not replicate DNA or maintain homeostasis of oxygen levels as well. In fact, many intracellular processes involve the exchange of oxygen and this can impair functionality.
What Can Be Done?
There are ways to restore or maintain cellular health, which will greatly improve overall health. First and foremost, avoid toxins. A cell can’t perform optimally when it is doing damage control. Try to cut out as much junk and chemically enhanced products as possible. Secondly, pay attention to the foods consumed. It can be a hassle, but it does make a huge difference in general health because the body can only work with what it is given.
Lastly, add cell supplements. Products like ASEA Redox use cell signaling to help restore the homeostasis of oxygen levels. These steps will increase cellular health, which will lead to faster healing and disease prevention.
Taking good care of your body and health starts at a cellular level. Use these information above to help increase your body’s cellular production and regeneration.
