Atoms are the basic building blocks of matter. Atoms combine to form molecules, unique chemical combinations of atoms held together by a chemical bond. The body uses different molecules as a way to signal changes needed or to communicate both within the cell and outside the cell. These molecules are categorized into different species such as Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and Reduced Species (RS) or in total they are called redox signaling molecules. Actually, the body uses more than just oxygen species, such as reactive nitrogen species and reactive sulfur species, but oxygen species are the primary instigators of the signaling cascade or process.

These redox signaling molecules are so important because as stressors hit the body—whether it be heavy metals, harmful organisms, chemicals, pollution, or simply time and aging—those stressors decrease optimal cell function. When proper cell function declines and the ability to create and maintain redox signaling molecules is hampered then the body is not able to remove harmful substances, heal, or maintain energy. The overall functioning of the body decreases and dwindles as the individual cells decrease and dwindle in their ability to function.

There are many ways you can improve your redox potential or redox signaling in the body, however there are only a couple supplements that we know of that contain redox signaling molecules. The first supplement is Asea which contains the oxygen based mitochondrial redox signaling molecules (what human cells use). The second is Restore which contains carbon based bacterial redox signaling molecules (what bacteria use).

ASEA: communication help for your cells

ASEA can directly affect the redox potential of all the cells of the body by providing extra redox molecules into a weakened cell environment. These extra molecules then help the cell to function properly and heal or destroy as it is designed to do. From the Asea website: “Because the molecules in ASEA Redox Supplement are native to the body, they enhance vital cellular function to achieve optimal health and wellness. Drinking ASEA Redox Supplement every day enhances the ability of every cell in your body to function at a higher level, positively affecting the health of every system of the body.” Dr. Gary Samuelson, Ph.D. Atomic Medical Physicist, states, “Laboratory results with living cells have demonstrated over a 500% increase in efficacy of two native master antioxidants, glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) even when very small concentrations of ASEA were added.” and also, “ASEA demonstrated zero toxicity. Any mechanism of action that causes cells to produce more antioxidants almost always involves a response to some sort of low-level toxicity-induced oxidative stress. ASEA is able to elicit the production of antioxidants in cells without eliciting any toxic response or oxidative stress. The technology behind ASEA is the only mixture (able to do this), to date, that has been shown to elicit antioxidant production without eliciting a toxic response. In this sense, ASEA is very unique.”

Restore: communication help for your bacteria

Restore takes into account something that many people are finally being awakened to: our body is greatly affected by our environment and gut biome. In many ways Restore might be even more important for the body than focusing solely on human cells since the epigenetic influence of organisms on our cells is so profound. Each person has trillions of bacteria in and on them. Being that a large majority of our immune system is found in our gut and the gut is populated by diverse amounts of bacteria—it has a direct and powerful impact on our health such that diseases can be predicted based on the types of bacteria found in different intestines.

According to Dr. Zach Bush, “RESTORE provides the communication network to support the return of biodiversity to the gut ecosystem that supports normal immune function. RESTORE is the first supplement on the market that functions as an antidote to glyphosate and gluten toxicity at the tight junction.” Restore provides an environment for the thousands of species necessary to thrive in the body as opposed to the 20-30 that you might find in a probiotic (which may cause an imbalance). By encouraging the gut biome to thrive a person can heal the lining of the intestines and provide the foundation for healing of all the body’s membranes thereby reducing systemic inflammation and healing myriads of conditions.

  1. Asea and absorption : like oil pulling makes Asea better absorption. Otherwise send me advise. Thanks

  2. Great article. I take both Restore and ASEA plus there Renu 28 Good explanation about carbon base and oxygen base redox and potential interaction between mithocondria and michrobiome

  3. I’ve been a huge fan of restore and was thinking about adding asea into the mix. On the restore website it says to take away from asea. As someone to takes both, how do you go about doing that in a way that maximizes both supplement benefits? Thanks so much.

  4. Hi Sam,
    The molecules have a “reactiveness” to them, so both Asea and Restore are recommended to take separately from other products. I would recommend separating them by at least 5 minutes.


  5. Hi Jacqui,
    There are so many ways as the body is very complex and by increasing health and removing toxins, cell signaling can be increased. Some of the most notable ways in my opinion are:
    detoxification, sunshine, grounding (earthing), and super nutrient dense foods.
