It starts with your cells

It starts with your cells

Everything in our body starts with a single cell.

One Cell… of the 100 trillion cells which make up each element of our body.

Our Cells make Our Tissue

Our Tissue make Our Organs

Our Organs make Our Systems

Our Systems make Our Entire Body

These tiny individual life-forming structures, are what makes us who we are and most importantly, how we are.

By that we mean, in health, constantly communicating with each other and responding to their environment - our cells dictate how we feel, therefore it’s important that we look after them as the fundamental building blocks of life.

If you concentrate in your mind’s eye, on a single cell - as the foundation to your health.

Then if you can imagine building up the strength of this single cell it will have a major positive impact on your groups of cells that make up your tissues, organs and the rest of your body.

You essentially are building on your health from within, through that single cell.

The importance of having healthy, nourished cells ensures they can work efficiently. If they can’t, the functioning of tissues and organs will become compromised which can lead to ill health and disease. Nourishing your cells enables them to look after your body.

Cells have many functions in the body including prevention from DNA damage and energy production. We naturally accumulate DNA damage with age, poor diet and environmental exposure to toxins. DNA damage can impact on energy production and lead to early cell death, causing inflammation and chronic disease.

Tens of millions of new cells are made daily in the body to replace old and damaged cells.

Nutrients are required as raw materials for new cells to function optimally and support health.

Consuming an abundance of nutrients through whole foods and supplements, alongside movement and relaxation techniques can promote healthy cells.

One of the most important requirements for our cells is minerals.

It is vital we supplement our cells with minerals, which are no longer readily available by food consumption alone.

Our cells require the full spectrum of 78 minerals and trace elements, because all minerals work in synergy in the body.

Cellnutrition provides a range of nutritional supplements to help prevent DNA damage to support overall health of the body by promoting healthy ageing and energy production at a cellular level.

By keeping our cells healthy, our tissues, organs and systems work better so we can function at 100%.

The only place you can get all 78 mineral and trace elements together and in the correct proportions is in our oceans.

Interdependency

Optimal digestive health, demands that we have the correct ratio of nutrients, minerals and trace elements within our bodies and, as we now know, food just isn’t enough, so what do we take and how do we choose?

Due to the depletion of minerals in food, supplements are of course beneficial. However not all supplements work effectively in the body, why? Because there is a complex interaction between nutrients and between minerals and trace elements.

‘Mineral Synergy’

During the 1980’s scientists discovered what is now known as the law of mineral interdependency, meaning that all minerals are totally dependent on one another to work effectively, to give you an example –

If you supplement with calcium, the absorption and metabolism of phosphorus, iron, zinc, magnesium and manganese will be affected, as they all work in synergy. These minerals can then affect all the other minerals and trace elements that they individually work with – like a chain reaction, one mineral offsets the benefits of another (read, they don’t work in isolation).

Let’s take three popular independent mineral supplements:

Magnesium takes part in over 300 enzymatic reactions. It is essential for nerve and muscle function.
The absorption and metabolism of magnesium requires cadmium, lead, sodium, phosphorus, calcium, iron, potassium and manganese in the correct balance, and these minerals in turn need more minerals to work.

Therefore, magnesium won’t work to its full effect without at least 20 other minerals.

Calcium is needed for healthy teeth and bones however without strontium, zinc, magnesium, manganese and iron, the absorption and metabolism of calcium is effected, and these minerals in turn need more minerals to work.

Therefore, calcium won’t work to its full effect without at least 20 other minerals.

Iron is needed to transport oxygen in the blood and is required as a cofactor for many enzymes. The absorption and metabolism of iron requires copper, manganese, cadmium, zinc, lead, calcium and chromium in the correct balance, and these minerals in turn need more minerals to work.

Therefore, iron won’t work to its full effect without at least 20 other minerals.

SHOP MINERALS

Taking large amounts of a single vitamin or mineral supplement can also affect absorption and may lead to malabsorption syndrome due to the imbalance of nutrients that work in synergy in the body.

Although you may consume a range of nutrient dense foods, nutrition in the body happens at a cellular level. This means that minerals have to be digested and transported into our blood and cells. This depends on the foods we eat, the supplements we take and our health status.

Nutrients such as phytic acid in plant foods can reduce the absorption of other minerals such as zinc. This can then impact on the other minerals in the body. It is therefore often recommended that we soak foods such as grains and legumes before cooking them.
Excess or insufficient intake of minerals can impact on the absorption or metabolism of other nutrients in the body.

Absorption of nutrients is also impacted by poor digestion in the the digestive tract. This can increase due to stress which impacts the secretion of stomach acid that aids digestion.

Minerals are divided between the macro minerals and the trace elements. The macro minerals include sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, sulfur, chlorine. The rest of the elements such as iron, copper and selenium are trace elements as they are required in the body in much smaller trace amounts.

Why do we need 78 minerals and trace element’s

The depletion of the whole spectrum of minerals and trace elements today is one of the main risk factors for disease. The human body contains the full spectrum of elements and continual intake of these elements is required to maintain good health. As all minerals and trace elements rely on one another for absorption and metabolism it is important that we provide the full spectrum for each to carry out its own individual function properly.  

Cellnutrition (Quinton) Hypertonic and Isotonic, is the only mineral supplement on the market, which contains all 78 minerals the body requires in an entirely pure and highly bioavailable form.

Essential Fatty Acids

Omega 3 and Omega 6 are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). Linoleic acid (LA), an Omega 6 fatty acid, and α-linolenic acid (ALA), an Omega 3 fatty acid are considered essential fatty acids (EFA) because they cannot be synthesized by the body and are therefore consumed through diet and supplements. Oleic acid, an Omega 9 fatty acid is a mono unssaturated fatty acid (MUFA). Omega 9 fatty acids are ‘conditionally essential’ as they can be produced by the body.

Omega 3 and Omega 6 are important structural components of cell membranes affecting the cells fluidity, flexibility and permeability. They produce eicosanoids, chemical messengers that help regulate immunity, blood pressure and blood clotting. The eicosanoids produced from Omega 3 tend to be less inflammatory to those produced from Omega 6. In many cases, these fatty acids act like steroid hormones and control gene expression.

Omega 3

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) are Omega 3’s that are used by the body efficiently, so they have the most direct health benefits. Sources of DHA and EPA are oily fish (e.g salmon, herring) and Omega 3 fortified foods including milk, yoghurt and eggs.

Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is a type of Omega 3 that can be converted into DHA and EPA in the body. Sources of ALA are mostly plant sources; chia seeds, flax seeds, nuts, tofu and ALA supplements.

DHA is found at very high concentrations in the cell membranes of the retina and it is therefore required for the normal development of the eye and for normal vision. DHA intake during pregnancy and breastfeeding (350 – 450mg per day) promotes healthy brain and eye development for the baby.

EPA and DHA aid heart health, normal blood pressure, and normal blood triglyceride levels. A study showed that ALA supplements might slightly reduce the risk of heart attacks, death from heart disease and arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat).

The phospholipids of the brain contain high amounts of DHA and AA, suggesting their importance to the central nervous system. EPA and DHA are beneficial for improving memory in older adults with mild cognitive impairment.

EPA and DHA have a wide range of physiological roles, which are linked to certain health or clinical benefits, particularly related to cardiovascular disease (CVD), cancer, inflammation and neurocognitive function.

There is some evidence that Omega 3 may be beneficial in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, (when taken in addition to arthritis medication). 

The anti-inflammatory effects of Omega 3 may help to reduce the risk of certain types of cancer, such as colon, liver, breast and prostate cancer.

Omega 6

Omega 6 includes linoleic and gamma linoleic acid (GLA) which can be found in sunflower, corn, evening primrose and borage oils.

Studies have shown that Omega 3 and Omega 6 are both needed to exert beneficial effects in the body due to their complex interactions.

As foods rich in Omega 6 are easier to find than those rich in Omega 3, more often than not people have a higher ratio of Omega 6:Omega 3 than recommended. Most diets have a ratio of 12:1 to 20:1 (Omega 6:Omega 3), but we are recommended to have 4:1 to aid health. Over time this high ratio of Omega 6:Omega 3 may lead to an imbalance of these EFA in the body, causing inflammation and increasing the risk of illness and disease.

The excessive intake of refined and processed vegetable oils is one of the main causes of the significant increase in Omega 6 fatty acids in the modern diet. In addition to this there has been an increase in Omega 6 fatty acids in dairy, eggs and meat due to animals being fed more grain and soy as opposed to grass and worms. This is why it is recommended to consume grass fed meat and wild fish as they tend to contain more Omega 3 as opposed to grain fed and farmed products.

Omegabiocell369 oils have a natural lemon flavor and can be used in salads, smoothies and porridge in addition to be taken daily as part of your regular wellness routine.

What is best for health?

Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids compete for the same desaturase enzymes which produce the eicoisanoids which is why it is important that we get sufficient amounts of each. Over time, high consumption of Omega 6 in the modern diet leads to a higher production of pro inflammatory reactions in the body. This can build up, causing cellular damage leading to chronic inflammation, type 2 diabetes, weight gain and cancer.

Studies in rodents showed that significant impairment of Omega 3 can impact learning and memory. It is therefore associated with cognitive development and decline. Low levels of Omega 3, DHA have been associated with diseases linked to the circulatory system and the nervous system.

The greatest demands for Omega 3, DHA occur during pregnancy for the developing foetus, at early childhood and in the elderly.

Due to the availability of Omega 3 rich foods and the depletion of Omega 3 in animal products, Omega 6 consumption has become progressively higher than Omega 3 so the correct ratio of Omega-6:Omega-3 (4:1) is no longer obtained from diet alone.

Supplementation is beneficial to ensure we get the right amounts of Omega 3,6 and 9 and in the correct ratio.

What is Omegabiocell369?

Omegabiocell369 is a 100% plant based omega oil created using a patented bio ester technology. It contains a mixture of flaxseed, borage, evening primrose and blackcurrant oil. This unique composition of oils gives Omegabiocell369 the highest concentration of Omega 3,6 and 9 to deliver the optimal ratio of omega 3:omega 6 (3:1). 

What advantages does Omegabiocell369 have?

Omegabiocell369 contains up to 60% of Omega 3, ALA which is a natural precursor of EPA and DHA.

Supplementing with ethyl esters of ALA controls the amount of ALA that is converted into EPA and DHA that it requires as opposed to flooding the cell with excess amounts as with other products. Excess amounts of EPA and DHA can disturb metabolic pathways in the body.

It is important to note that DHA and EPA supplementation from fish oils will present the fatty acids in triglyceride form (see fig 1) and will contain impurities including protein and phospholipids.

Omegabiocell369 is the only omega oil supplement on the market created a unique patented bio ester technology to provide EFA as ethyl esters.

This bio ester technology uses a transesterification process changing the structure of the fatty acids so that they are in ethyl ester form as opposed to triglycerides.

The patented bio ester technology enables easier absorption of the EFA into the cells in comparison to all other omega oils which are present as triglycerides.

SHOP OMEGABIOCELL369

The ethyl ester form of the fatty acids provides high bioavailability (more of the fatty acids are absorbed and used by the body) and excellent bioretention in the body (stays in the body for longer). This ensures fast transportation of Omega 3, 6 and 9 to the cells to exert their beneficial health effects.

The production process used to create the ethyl esters ensures complete removal of all pollutants occurring in vegetable oils, resulting in 100% plant preparations as ultra-pure bio esters. All Omegabiocell369 products are free from preservatives, artificial colours, aromas, allergens, heavy metals, pesticide residues and contaminants as a result of the 4 step purification process used.

What is the advantage of ethyl esters over triglycerides?
The ethyl esters are much smaller in size in comparison to triglycerides. This enables easier abosprtion and better bioretention of the fatty acids in the body, so they can exert their beneficial effects for longer.

With triglycerides the peak of absorption tends to be within a few hours after consumption, with ethyl esters (fig 1), they have a slower peak of absorption, so the fatty acids stay in the cells for longer. This enables more of the fatty acids to be absorbed by the cells and to stay in the cells for longer to exert their beneficial effects on health.
