The Nutrition of the Future to extend life with health.
Generally in terms of nutrition we give priority to the palate however it is necessary that we emphasize the consumption of foods that provide us with the necessary nutrients to maintain cellular health and optimal metabolism.
We tend to worry about NOT consuming too much fat in order to take care of the heart and arteries. We minimize the consumption of sugar out of our fear of cavities and obesity. We watch our salt intake out of fear of getting high blood pressure and even opt for whole foods that are high in fiber. Unfortunately, nutrition tends to be related more to physical appearance and not so much to the health of our organs and tissues.
The new concept of cellular nutrition is making a way for CELLULAR RENOVATION. Cellular Renovation will help us understand how our health and the health of our cells depends largely on what we can do preventively.
In recent years a new concept of cellular nutrition has emerged, mainly in France, Switzerland, England, Germany and the United States. Some doctors are calling this new therapeutic approach ortho-molecular nutrition.
Orthomolecular nutrition takes into account that all tissues have a structure that depends on the cooperation between different types of cells and therefore it is essential for the health of the tissues and organs that cells are healthy.
Cellular nutrition for therapeutic purposes is then defined as the supply of nutrients that the body’s cells need to obtain energy and maintain their structure and functions.
The cell is wrapped in a thin membrane composed mainly of fatty matter and within it are protein molecules that perform specialized functions. The cell membrane has a vital function as it controls what can pass into or out of the cell. The cell interior, or cytoplasm, contains a series of specialized structures, among which the nucleus, mitochondria and the Golgi apparatus stand out. In the nucleus is the genetic material that carries all the information necessary for the functioning of the cell. The mitochondria are responsible for the synthesis of ATP, the production of energy for cellular functions and the maintenance of body temperature.
Cell functions and its physiology can be affected by poor eating habits both in default and through excess, causing alterations in the adequate levels of minerals and vitamins and other nutrients as well as the appearance and increase of toxins. All of these changes slow down cell functions and drain the cell’s energy.
Excess toxins inhibit or destroy enzymes, hinder cellular energy production, and disable the cell to synthesize proteins. Some toxins affect the genetic material and others can damage the cell wall. Example: excess sodium and sugar are also toxic and affect the cell in the same way that toxins do.
