What is redox potential? The importance of redox signaling

ASEA® Redox Cell Signaling Supplement is formulated to do many things for your body by enhancing its redox potential. What is redox potential? We’ve got everything you need to know right here.

Before we begin, we should define another key term—redox signaling, or reduction-oxidation signaling.

What is redox signaling?

Redox signaling is the cascade of intracellular communication that allows your body to maintain itself at the microscopic level. Cells can gauge the condition of other cells, and through this signaling system, they are empowered to behave in a way that is beneficial to your body as a whole.

Redox potential is the capacity at which your system can operate on the fundamental level. The more redox potential at your body’s disposal, the more energy your cells have for communicating with one another and carrying out simple tasks, resulting in healthier overall bodily functions—both internally and in your skin!

What is redox potential, exactly?

To send these important signals to one another, your cells need energy and chemical resources for exchange (in a process called transduction). The main exchange of chemical units comes through electron transfer reactions that rely on free radicals and other viable, redox-active molecules floating around inside cells.

The impact of redox events

Redox signaling events can be triggered under several different circumstances—a cell infected with a virus may compel its neighbors to eradicate it, for example. These interactions also govern cellular turnover on the surface of the skin. Your skin exfoliates naturally by targeting damaged surface cells in the worst condition.

Naturally, when these chemical resources—electron transfer proteins, primarily—exist in abundance, your body is much more capable of maintaining itself. However, when your cells find themselves in a deficit of electron transfer proteins, the chores start to pile up. When this happens, the body loses redox balance, oxidation runs rampant, and we end up looking and feeling worse as a result.

Good redox potential is characterized by a high degree of specificity and energy; your cells can pinpoint and meet their needs without impediment. 

Microscopic and internal, these vital cellular processes are hidden away from the naked eye. Yet, because they directly impact your skin’s processes, you can observe how healthy your redox potential is by looking for a tell-tale glow.

How can redox potential help you and your skin?

There are a million ways that your skin may be dulled by lifestyle or environmental factors. A number of these issues are often treated topically: 

  • UV exposure
  • Acne
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Toxins
  • Old age

Topical treatments often fail to address the biology of the problem, however.

Oxidative stress damages the appearance of skin cells and may also damage the genetic core that they rely deeply on. 

This further disrupts cellular behavior and growth as the genes dictating each move become more difficult for your cells to access and interpret. They become less efficient and less focused on their jobs. They might even impose a negative toll on the other skin cells around them.

Redox signaling truly is your body’s best hope for normal recovery from daily environmental damage . Instead of glossing over the issue, this system empowers your cells to clean your skin up from the inside out. Healthy cells beneath the surface soon become the surface, after all.

Every blemish and problem area is simply a composition of skin cells that have either been damaged or aren’t functioning properly. Removing these cells and encouraging new, healthy cells to flourish in their place is the surest path to natural, youthful, healthy-looking skin.
