Cell Signaling - Your Health, Vitality and Longevity Depends on It!
Have you ever asked yourself a question: why our bodies break down over time? The reason this breakdown occurs is actually very simple: the body stops responding to instructions from the genes because the right communication depends on having healthy cells in every tissue, organ and system of the body. This communication ensures that messages are delivered and received to modulate cell production, initiate and sustain cell repair, and perform other restorative processes.
For example, if the heart cells do not get the right messages, they simply cannot carry out the genetic instructions to keep the heart functioning well. So our health depends on turning on the genes that communicate messages to the cells so that the cells can perform their functions. The molecules involved in this communication are called cell signaling molecules.
Cell signaling in the body stimulates the pathways for gene expression. These are genetic pathways that carry life-sustaining instructions from the genes to the cells so that the cells can keep the body healthy. This process is so vital that if any given system of your body were to suddenly stop making cell signaling molecules, that system would break down and fail in minutes! So to emphasize this again: cell signaling, and the gene expression that cell signaling facilitates, is what sustains life.
Another important thing to know is that during cellular respiration, the body produces small molecules with redox potential. These are redox molecules, many of which can perform cell signaling functions. Because of that these redox molecules constitute their own class of cell signaling molecules called redox signaling molecules. The term redox is scientific shorthand for reduction-oxidation reaction, which is a biologically important electron-transfer reaction that plays a significant support role in many of the body’s life-sustaining processes. Any cell signaling function carried out specifically by redox signaling molecules is known as redox signaling.
So why is redox signaling so important?
Redox signaling molecules are produced within every cell in the body and act as either cellular messengers or cellular activators. The activator molecules carry the messages that tell the cells to activate antioxidants stored in the body. As I am sure you know, antioxidants are chemicals that keep oxidative free radicals in check and prevent them from causing cellular damage. However, antioxidants will only work if activated by redox signaling molecules.
On the other hand, messenger molecules are responsible for enabling proper cell communication within the body to ensure optimal performance of the immune system. They also activate the immune system to protect against pathogens. So as you can see, the right level of redox signaling molecules is vital not only for people with autoimmunity, or cancer, but anybody who wants health and vitality.
Oxidative stress creates an imbalance between pro-oxidants and antioxidant systems in the body. An imbalance can be a result of several factors, such as: environmental pollutants and toxins, infections, poor diet, emotional toxicity, and radiation. To counter this, the body utilizes redox signaling molecules to help maintain a healthy balance between pro-oxidants and antioxidants.
Our health depends on a balance between oxidative stress and antioxidant signaling. As we age, and as stress and environmental toxins saturate our lives, our defences weaken and our normal cellular function declines. As a result, the body’s ability to produce and maintain a proper balance of redox signaling molecules also declines.
So what can we do about it?
For many years, researchers have explored ways to supplement redox signaling molecules in the body to combat the effects of age, toxins, and environmental stress. To date, there is only one product that replicates these naturally occurring molecules outside of the body. This is done in a patented process using the same building blocks the body uses: salt and water. This supplement has been scientifically shown to benefit gene expression in the following genetic pathways:
- immune system
- hormonal balance
- inflammatory response modulation
- digestive function
- vascular health
Coincidently (or not), these are crucial areas to address for anyone wanting to heal from autoimmunity!
Redox signaling is a maturing area of research within the fields of cell biology and metabolic studies. A peer-reviewed scientific journal dedicated to understanding the vital impact of redox processes on human health and disease was established in 1999. The number of peer-reviewed papers on the topic is somewhere in the tens of thousands by now!

As a nutritionist, I believe in individual prescription. This is why you will only see me recommend supplements on extremely rare occasions. In this case, I have been using and researching this supplement for 8 months now and I absolutely believe that this is one of this very rare supplements that can benefit most people. This is because of the fundamental level at which it works.
I was fortunate to have had access to it after my horrible bike accident and the speed with which I was able to heal the hematoma, edema, and the bone tissue itself was incredible! I also find it has improved my ability to detoxify and my energy levels have never been better. I take this supplement before I exercise and it makes my running so much better and so much more enjoyable. What is also interesting is that I used to take a number of supplements to improve my detoxification pathways and mitochondrial function, which I have now stopped taking as I do not feel I need them anymore.
If you want to experience this for yourself, contact me. Below are some testimonials from people who had issues with immunity.
“When my immune system turned on me eight years ago, I felt like I was drowning in my own blood. Bones quickly dissolved causing me to have 9 major surgeries in the course of less than 24 months. This included both total hip replacements. I was told I might never walk again and was given weekly medication with horrible side effects that I would have to remain on for the rest of my life. Well three years ago I discovered redox molecules supplement and over time was able to completely wean off the chemo medication. At 61 I have never in my entire life felt healthier!!”
“In 2007 I was diagnosed with a degenerative joint autoimmune disease that caused swelling and pain all over my body. For 17 months I gave myself injections of a chemotherapy drug that added massive headaches and nausea to my symptoms. I had no quality of life which lead to a dark day of decision. Thinking of my children and grandchildren I knew I had to leave Western Medicine despite all the warnings.
I lived on ibuprofen for 2 1/2 years before I was introduced to Redox Molecules. That was 8 years ago and I have a large list of benefits that I attribute to the Redox Molecules. I have regained eye lashes and eyebrows, My hair is thicker and healthy, my eyes are no longer dry and no more floaters, no sinus allergies, my teeth are cleaner and no bleeding gums, no more thyroid challenges, my joints are no longer painful and swollen, no hip, knee or feet discomfort. I also enjoy better sleep, less brain fog, and a better outlook on life.”
“I hope by sharing my story, I can give hope back to those that have lost it. In August of 2010 a friend, Joe from California, called my husband and asked him to try a product that he believed was miraculous. He didn’t understand the science, but talked about the cardiovascular benefits and athletic benefits. He knew we worked out and that we were pretty healthy people. What he didn’t know was that I was sick, my body was in a state of dis-ease and had been for almost 6 years. I had been bitten by a bug and the infection from that bug went undiagnosed for years. I then was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder on top of everything else. Everything in my body hurt; my joints and my muscles from head to toes. I was miserable. I had extreme fatigue- bone crushing fatigue is the only way to describe it. I had to focus to stay awake while driving, I had to focus when people were talking to me, I needed to lay down many times during the day. I had extreme brain fog and many times I couldn’t find words. The list goes on and on, from shooting pain, numbness, nerve pain, muscle twitching….you get the picture. To add insult to injury, I became anxious and depressed. I was embarrassed and didn’t want anyone to know, so I shut myself off from the world; friends and family included. I tried everything to get better. I tried Western medicine (lots of medications!), Eastern medicine, acupuncture, alternative, every supplement known to man kind, juicing, colonics, EVERYTHING! Nothing worked, I just continued to decline. On day 3 of drinking the redox supplement, I woke up, put my feet on the floor and walked to the bathroom. Normally I would limp in pain to the bathroom, every morning it was a monumental task to get my body moving. But not that day! I continued over the next few months healing: physically, psychologically, and emotionally. I regained hope, which I had completely lost…and after 4 months of feeling great, I asked my doctors to take me off my medications. I was still scared, but I knew with every fiber of my being that I had finally found the answer. Instead of hiding from the world, I began to embrace the world.”
“10 years ago I was diagnosed with 2 autoimmune conditions. I had fevers, fatigue, facial butterfly rash, skin rashes, kidney infections, brain fog, fatigue, and the worse was muscle pain and weakness. Not sleeping and feeling tired and weak all the time. Lots of specialists, lots of prescription drugs (minimum 6 x twice a day, sometimes more) and struggling with depression because I had no control of my body and couldn’t be the mother I wanted to be for my kids. My friend mentioned these wonderful molecules, but I was skeptical at first. Finally, after 4 months I decided to try it. I felt very tired as I detoxed in the first week. In the 2nd week I started feeling more energetic and the brain fog began to clear. For the first time in years I woke up in the morning feeling like I actually slept! I felt refreshed when I woke up. Then after 3 months I went on a family bushwalk and was able to walk 3 km effortlessly and go up all these stairs without my partner Harry having to push me up the stairs, and without PAIN! My partner Harry said “Don’t you ever stop taking these molecules” he could see the difference and was so happy. I noticed there was no pain in my muscles anymore, which I normally just had to live with in whatever I did. I would walk upstairs in my house and suddenly realise that there was no pain after the 3rd step like usual. The biggest bonus was I felt strong and well enough to ride horses again!”
