YOUR BODY IS TELLING YOU WHAT IT NEEDS FOR OPTIMAL CELLULAR HEALTH. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LISTEN.
POWERING CELLULAR HEALTH THROUGH PLANT BASED SOLUTIONS
When someone talks about the importance of cellular health, what do they actually mean? With so many gimmicks out there offering temporary health solutions through the use of synthetic (often harmful) chemicals, cellular health can be an easy buzzword to throw on the pile. The truth is you are probably already doing things that promote cellular health, and you should probably be doing more.
The human body is an amazing machine. Designed to diagnose and repair itself when faced with bacteria, infection, stress, or injury, our bodies are naturally prepared for most of what life can throw at us. At the foundation of this ingeniously crafted network of systems, tissues and organs are the building blocks of life. Our cells. Each of us are made up of trillions of cells which perform complex functions throughout our bodies that control how we move, how we think and how we feel. For our bodies to function at their best, it is crucial that our cells are functioning at THEIR best, so the more we can do to ensure that our cells are healthy, the more we can improve our health overall. This is why focusing on cellular health is so important.
A NEW WAY TO APPROACH HEALTH & WELLNESS
Our bodies have an amazing ability to repair or even replace failing cells, but after prolonged damage and cellular stress, our cells begin to die off causing us to age more rapidly and can lead to organ failure. For most people, it is only after we can see or feel that something is wrong with our bodies that we react with trips to the doctor or changes in lifestyle to try and “fix” the problem, which may have been building up long before we were even aware that something wasn’t right. This reactionary approach to the way we see health can now be a thing of the past. We can now combine the idea of leading a healthier lifestyle while directly promoting and supporting health at the cellular level to achieve truly longer lasting, whole body health.
GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR DIET FOR CELL HEALTH
It’s no secret that the quality of our diets can have a huge impact on our health. The difference in someone with a perfect diet and someone with a poor diet can be immediately visible, but what about all the people who do their best to stick to a relatively balanced diet? The food that we eat provides the nutrients that power us throughout the day and our cells are responsible for generating that power. One of the primary functions of our cells is to break down the nutrients in our food, convert those nutrients to energy which is used for almost every function of our bodies. This is what is called cellular respiration. Knowing this, It starts to make sense that eating foods that are rich in nutrients will provide the cells with more that they can convert to energy. The hard part becomes knowing exactly which foods to eat, and if those foods contain all of the nutrients that they are supposed to to support healthy cells.
When our diets start to slip, the change in our cells starts to happen right away. Eating foods that are low in nutrients lead to an increase in free radical activity and an increase in cellular waste, and a build up of cellular waste can be a silent killer. Our cells stop producing as much energy and over time begin to die off. We can see this in the form of obesity, early aging and even worse, age-related chronic diseases. Eating healthy isn’t just about staying away from candy and fatty foods, it’s about giving our bodies, and more importantly our cells, the right fuel to keep us young and healthy. Healthy cells can increase blood oxygen levels, reduce inflammation, give us more energy and prevent long term illnesses. Supporting your cells with healthy foods and supplements is a key component of whole body health.
POWER UP YOUR EXERCISE ROUTINE
One of the ways that cells can fail, and ultimately die is from a lack of oxygen. Your cells can actually suffocate if you are not giving them the oxygen that they need. By adding a bit of exercise to our routines, we can help maintain the proper function of the mitochondria in our cells. Our muscle cells specifically are packed with mitochondria, so the more aerobic exercise we do, the more oxygen gets sent to the cells to be converted into energy. In fact, the more we exercise and send oxygen to the muscle cells, our bodies will actually create new cells (also containing more mitochondria) which form new blood vessels that will allow for more blood flow and more oxygen.
When our cells are exposed to prolonged or chronic stress, their ability to function, heal, duplicate or detoxify starts to dramatically decrease. As our body tries to replenish the cells that die off under stressful conditions, it will create new cells that are better equipped to live in the stressed environment, but these cells can be weaker and more susceptible to infection. Prolonged stress can also decrease the cell’s ability to remove toxins, which can lead to a buildup of plaque. This excess waste in the cells can lead to heart attack, stroke or even worse, cancer. The list of health risks goes on and on when we look at what happens to our cells under stress, so something as simple as doing 30 seconds of breathing can oxygenate the cells, improve mood and relieve stress. While stress may be unavoidable in our day to day lives, when we know what it can do to our cells and ultimately our health, we can stop, take a deep breath and start to heal.
LONG STORY SHORT, DO THE BEST YOU CAN
It sounds great, almost utopian, that we could all lead lives where our diets are perfect, we get all the exercise we need and we don’t suffer any injuries, get sick or feel stressed by what life throws our way. The reality is that no one is perfect, and we can only do the best we can. There are plenty of supplements out there that can give the body a boost, but then there are the ones that actually support whole body health by powering up the cells to function properly.
