How to Keep Your Cells Healthy


Taking care of your cellular health can be difficult. Knowing what you can do to improve your cellular health can help tremendously. Today, we will be discussing what cellular health is, why it’s important, and what you can do to improve your cellular health. 

What Is Cellular Health?

Your body is made up of trillions of cells. In fact, your body relies on cells every second of every day. Therefore, cellular health is incredibly important. Without properly functioning cells, the functioning of tissues and organs will become compromised which can lead to the development of disease and other health ailments.

Part of cellular health is your body’s ability to replace damaged cells with newer, healthier cells. This process is known as autophagy. Autophagy is a function that allows your body to renew damaged cells. These damaged cells can cause a roadblock of sorts, preventing the healthy cells in your body from doing their job properly. 

How to Keep Your Cells Healthy

So how do you keep your cells healthy? Fortunately there are several things that you can do. Healthy lifestyle changes can ensure your cells continue to function at their best. If you’re looking to improve cellular health, here are some of the things you should do:

  • Eat grass-fed animal products
  • Detox heavy metals from your system
  • Cut out toxic vegetable oils
  • Exercise
  • Black coffee
  • Stay hydrated

Simple lifestyle changes can significantly improve your cellular health. Limiting your exposure to toxins, providing your cells with the right nutrients, and exercising to improve mitochondrial function all contribute to healthier cells.

What Is Cellular Food?

Your diet plays a huge role in your cellular health. Knowing the foods that promote cellular health can help you keep your cells healthy. So what are some of the foods that promote cellular health:

  • Apples - Apples contain fiber which helps keep your cells healthy
  • Arugula - Arugula contains high levels of folic acid and antioxidants
  • Avocado - Avocado contains a high dose of vitamins A, B6, C, E, and K
  • Almond milk - Almond milk is rich in Vitamin E
  • Blueberries - Blueberries contain brain power boosters
  • Dark chocolate - Dark chocolate contains polyphenols that can help with cholesterol control

Adding these foods into your diet can help improve your overall well being as well as your longevity. 

What Nutrients Do Cells Need?

Regularly eating the right foods provide your cells with the necessary macro and micronutrients needed for cellular repair and homeostasis. If you’re wondering what nutrients, vitamins, and minerals your body needs here are a few down below:

  • Micronutrients - B,C and E vitamins, Magnesium, Zinc among others
  • Fat
  • Protein
  • Fiber

Adding foods that are high in these nutrients can help you ensure your cells are healthy. 

What Vitamins Are Good for Cells?

Certain vitamins are good for your cells. You can get these vitamins through your diet or you can get these vitamins through supplements. Listed below are some of the vitamins you should have in your daily routine:

  • Carotenoids
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin C

It can be difficult to get these vitamins through your diet. Supplementing these vitamins is a great way to ensure you’re getting the necessary vitamins in your daily diet. 

What Is Cellular Health Analysis?

A cellular health analysis (CHA) uses bio-markers to identify areas that may keep your cells from being healthy. This analysis helps doctors determine how quickly or slowly your body is aging. Some of the bio-markers the analysis takes into consideration include:

  • Fat mass
  • Cellular toxicity
  • Cellular vitality
  • Total body water
  • Muscle mass
  • The water inside your cells

This analysis can help you reverse the aging process. By understanding where you are in the aging process, you can design lifestyle choices that help reverse the unwanted side effects of aging. 

How Do You Improve Cellular Regeneration?

There are ways you can help improve cellular regeneration beyond your diet. These healthy lifestyle changes can help you improve your longevity. Here are some of the things you can do to improve cellular regeneration:

  • Stop smoking and reduce alcohol intake
  • Exercise frequently
  • Get good sleep 
  • Avoid toxic products

These healthy lifestyle changes will not only help with your cellular health but with your overall well being as well. 

Supplements May Help

One supplement that can help encourage cellular heath is spermidine. Spermidine helps induce something called autophagy. This is the body’s process of cellular renewal through the removal of damaged and toxic cellular debris. This process helps keep you feeling and looking young while also dramatically lowering your chances of developing age-related diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. While it is possible to get your recommended daily intake of spermidine through your diet, it’s recommended to take supplements so you ensure you get the correct dose. Simply taking your supplements with your dinner is a great way to remember to take spermidine supplements every night.
