The human body is comprised of over 30 trillion cells with over 300 billion cells being replaced on a daily
basis. These cells are responsible for a vast number of functions. Transportation of oxygen, repairing
tissue, providing our immune system, optimizing hormone health, and sending signals to the brain are
just a few important functions of the human cells.

Since good health starts at a cellular level, it is important to properly nourish and protect our cells. Have
you ever watched a small child and wished you had their unstoppable energy? Most humans start out
with that very energy because we are born with healthy, unpolluted cells. Through lifestyle choices,
unhealthy food choices, and daily stress, cells become polluted and unhealthy. When that happens, the
production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is slowed down. Therefore, we lose the energy we once
had. We also become more susceptible to illness and chronic disease.

The food we eat can have a positive or negative impact on the health of our cells. Eating a diet filled with
whole or minimally processed foods along with a variety of fresh vegetables and fruits is a good start to
improving healthy cells. Healthy fats such as avocados, fatty fish, olive oil, raw nuts and seeds, and MCT
(Medium Chain Triglycerides) oils are imperative for a healthy cell membrane. Eating foods that
promote a healthy gut will also improve overall cell health. At the same time, it is important to minimize
foods that are harmful to cell health. Sugar, refined foods, processed meats, and poor-quality fats can
contribute to harming the mitochondria, AKA the powerhouse of the cell, and make us sluggish and sick.

To ensure you are getting the nutrients for optimal cell health, consider adding a supplement that
supports cell health, particularly the mitochondria. Rejuv offers Regenacore, a multivitamin that is
designed to recharge cellular energy production, increase antioxidant protection, support immune
function, support detoxification, and provides key micronutrients to optimize daily nutritional intake.

Other factors that contribute to poor cell health are sedentary lifestyle, stress, poor sleep habits, and
environmental toxins. Integrating exercise, particularly strength training and interval training, will
improve mitochondria health. Optimal sleep for not only cell health but for overall health is 7-9 hours of
good sleep per night. Minimize exposure to toxins by buying organic or pesticide free foods when
possible. Manage stress through meditation or by making time to destress and relax.

Prioritizing and taking care of your cell health can start with the above tips. For more in-depth help
