Mitochondria exist in every single cell in our body and are often referred to as the “little powerhouse” or energy powerhouse because they produce ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate), which is the main energy molecule in the body that makes us run, walk, move, beat our hearts, make our liver and kidneys work, our lungs function, swallow and to think.
A theory is that mitochondria is a symbiotic life form that adapted to human and animals through evolution – we can’t live without them, literally.
Mitochondria is like the “life force” of all of life, everything that walks, jumps, flys or crawls, has mitochondria in it. So what if more and more of the world began drinking ASEA to ingest more of this mitochondria so that all of us, collectively would again, regain a stronger “life force” and the quality of our health, of our thinking and acting would effect the planet and the direction of local and larger governments to work in a more balanced and loving way?
An interesting fact about the mitochondria in our cells is that they are the only things in our body that have their own DNA! So it really does appear they are symbiotic life force energies that are co-existing inside of us. Unless we have extraordinary abilities to delve into the mysteries of the essence of life itself, we’ll probably never know where mitochondria actually came from, that energy force in them, and how in the world a human being, Dr. Gary Samuelson was able to create the perfect laboratory incubator that would 100% mimic our perfect human or animal incubator that allows these life forces to feel ‘at home’ and so appear, and then give us their gifts of life energy. But I am quite grateful for Dr. Samuelson and for these mitochondria so that we can express our BEings in this thing called life, in a much more healthy way than with the dwindled amounts of mitochondria-created redox signaling molecules that I had BEFORE I started drinking ASEA.
Another powerful fact that is really mind-blowing is that 50% of your entire body’s dry weight is nothing but pure mitochondria! That means half of you is a collective of these mitochondria.
The mitochondria, the powerhouse of our cells, are mostly known for producing ATP. However, there are many other molecules that the mitochondria produce and these are known as Redox Signaling Molecules. These molecules are so important that we’d be dead without them and the more we produce, the more they repair worn cells, repair worn cells that are unrepairable, and signal to our immune system to go after all microbes and then when the bigger jobs are done, they can go after the wrinkles and probably the gray hair and the sagging skin and tired body and put spring back in our walk so that we look, feel and act many years younger! — wow, turning back the clock.
The Redox Signaling Molecules that are produced by our mitochondria are divided into two different categories. The first is ROS or Reactive Oxygen Species and the second is RS or Reduced Species.
The ROS molecules are responsible for attacking bad bugs in our body such as fungus, mold, viruses and bacteria and they signal our immune system to know whether an unhealthy cell needs to be repaired or replaced.
The RS molecules are necessary to activate or turn on antioxidants so they can neutralize oxidation in the body. To clarify — Antioxidants are 100% worthless without enough RS molecules to activate them. That’s right – when people spent lots of money on expensive antioxidant juices or other forms of antioxidants, like ACAI berries, or glutathione, or C, almost all of the antioxidants are completely worthless to the body since there aren’t enough RS molecules produced by our mitochondria to activate them — unless you are already healthy and still have many redox signaling molecules working for you!
These redox molecules are in a perfect balance and are responsible for us having healthy cells, living longer and having more energy and vitality.
There are various chloride molecules that are actually produced by our mitochondria amongst many other molecules. That is why some smell chlorine when drinking ASEA, or some think it tastes like pool water. There is a difference between CHLORINE and CHLORIDE. Chlorine is toxic, chloride is not toxic! Some of the other molecules include ozone and hydrogen peroxide, and that is another health benefit as some people will actually use ozone or hydrogen peroxide for serious health issues.
For many years, the science of biology has known about these molecules but has always referred to them as “cellular waste.” Usually, when the scientific world doesn’t know what the purpose of something is, it is labeled as unnecessary, waste or garbage.
Someday, our scientific world will realize that just because we don’t know what something is for doesn’t mean it is not needed, like our appendix or tonsils being routinely removed because “they are not needed.” I guess God who created us, made a mistake?
A baby has 100% cellular efficiency. By the time someone is seventy years of age, their cellular efficiency is only 10%. Every 10 years, we lose 10% of our redox signaling molecules, our mitochondria. So it is no big surprise that as we age we heal slower and have less energy –the 10% cellular efficiency at 70 years of age is due to the fact that most of the mitochondria are damaged or have been used up and are no longer in our bodies and so can’t produce any ATP or Redox Signaling Molecules!
So, when you think about Jack LaLaine or the Hindu Kush mountain or older peoples living close to the land, why they live so long, and are so healthy and strong, it is because they have managed to retain their mitochondria and therefore their redox signaling molecules.
If we can’t give ourselves more mitochondria, the next best thing is to give ourselves the molecules that the mitochondria make. Therefore, if someone is 70 years old, for example, and they are able to give their body the Redox Signaling Molecules in a quantity that is equivalent as what they would have as a child, they would heal their joints, bones, brain, stomach, everything, faster, have more energy and endurance and just about everything in their body would work better including a wonderful mental function again.
This is the world of Redox Signaling Molecules where for the first time in history (in OUR history) these molecules can be supplemented so that everyone can experience the vitality that they had as a child! DRINK YOUR MOLECULES TODAY!
