Frequently Asked Questions
Redox signaling molecules are produced within every cell in your body and act as either cellular messengers or cellular activators.
The activator molecules carry the messages that tell your cells to activate antioxidants stored in your body. Antioxidants are chemicals (both naturally occurring and man-made) that keep oxidative free radicals in check and prevent them from causing other cellular damage. However, antioxidants don’t work unless activated by redox signaling molecules.
Messenger molecules are responsible for enabling proper cell communication within your body to ensure optimal performance of the immune system. They also activate your body's immune system to protect against bacteria, viruses, and infection.
Oxidative stress creates an imbalance between pro-oxidants and antioxidant systems in your body. An imbalance can be a result of several environmental factors such as exposure to pollutants, infections, poor diet, toxins, and radiation. To counter this, your body utilizes redox signaling molecules to communicate and to help maintain a healthy balance between pro-oxidants and antioxidants.
Your health depends on a balance between oxidative stress and antioxidant defenses. As we age, and as stress and environmental toxins inundate our lives and weaken our defenses, normal cellular function declines, and with it, the body’s ability to produce and maintain a proper balance of redox signaling molecules.
Through this process, these molecules support crucial immune system functions, as well as cell renewal and healing at every age, but our ability to utilize these molecules becomes less efficient as we age.
For many years, researchers have explored ways to supplement redox signaling molecules in your body to combat the effects of age, toxins, and environmental stress. ASEA has developed a patented technology that replicates these naturally occurring molecules outside of the body.
Redox Signaling molecules are classified into two groups: Reactive Oxygen Species and Reduced Species. The Reactive Oxygen Species arms the immune system, the Reduced Species activates antioxidants. A careful, homeostatic balance between these two species is maintained in all cells and tissues. When a problem or damage occurs, this balance is disturbed, and this imbalance sends a signal to cause the cells and tissues to defend and repair themselves, thus restoring healthy balance.
Redox signaling molecules already exist in our bodies and are crucial for our bodies to function properly. They exist in our cells and need the redox signaling process to communicate and produce more molecules.
Cellular communication is important for overall cellular health. It ensures that messages are delivered and received in a timely manner to continue cell production and repair.
As we age, and as stress and environmental toxins inundate our lives and weaken our defenses, normal cellular function declines, and with it, the body’s ability to produce and maintain a proper balance of redox signaling molecules.
The body is continuously producing redox signaling molecules, but these molecules aren’t made in the same volume and can be less effective as we get older. Taking redox signaling molecules won’t reduce the amount your body naturally produces.
Yes, each of our bodies is different and has specific needs. With the proper nutrition, exercise and supplements, you can restore and maintain the optimal level of redox signaling molecules, helping you feel more energized and healthier longer. If you're unsure of your health status, have multiple health problems or are pregnant, speak with your doctor before starting a new supplement regimen. Working with your doctor ahead of time is a good way to determine a program that's right for you.
Redox signaling technology provides critical cellular communication that promotes cellular renewal and revitalization.
Redox signaling technology utilizes molecules that are native to the human body to enhance vital cellular function. It encourages cellular communication, repair and rejuvenation to provide the body with healthy cells.
A team of medical professionals, engineers and researchers discovered a proprietary technology to create life-sustaining redox signaling molecules.
Yes, ASEA patented the process and has made it available in two forms – ASEA Redox Supplement and RENU 28. There are several U.S. Government patents pending for ASEA related to its core technology.
Yes, more than 10,000 peer-reviewed papers have been written about it—there is even a scientific journal dedicated to its study. Do a simple search on Google Scholar (scholar.google.com) for the term redox signaling to view some of the recent research being conducted in the field of redox signaling science.
Redox signaling technology has not been evaluated by the FDA. However, ASEA manufacturing is FDA registered, NSF certified and meets all FDA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
NSF International’s GMP Registration Program enables manufacturers to become independently registered by NSF to meet GMP requirements. The program is open to manufacturers of dietary supplements who want to demonstrate their commitment to public safety.
These GMP requirements are listed in Section 8 of NSF/ANSI 173 which is the only accredited American National Standard in the dietary supplement industry developed in accordance with the FDA’s 21 CFR part 111.
