Factors that influence cell function include lifestyle, which includes foodm,  blood micronutrient levels, and genetics.


The nutrients obtained from your food are used by your cells to fuel and support the body's processes. Cells can only absorb these nutrients when they are functioning optimally. Therefore, cellular nutrition is crucial for both health and longevity.

Cellular nutrition focuses on supplying your cells with the ideal balance of nutrients they need to function optimally by providing proper nourishment to mitochondria, the powerhouses of the cell.


Key Elements of Cellular Nutrition


Did you know that there are over 40 different types of nutrients in the food you consume? These nutrients can be categorized into seven main classes: carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, water, and fiber, although many people don't consider fiber a nutrient because human cells don't absorb it, it has important anti-inflammatory effects, including the short-chain fatty acids that our good gut flora produces from it.

All of them are further grouped into two major categories based on their daily requirements.



The "building blocks" of the body, as they provide calories and support essential bodily processes. They are required by the body in substantial quantities, primarily for energy supply, metabolism, growth, and other vital functions. They encompass carbohydrates, proteins, fats, dietary fiber, and water.



Here is the key point, adequate intake of micronutrients can only be achieved through a balanced diet. They are required in small quantities throughout our diet and include fatty acids, minerals, and vitamins.

While most of the essential macronutrients are obtained from food, deficiencies are more commonly associated with micronutrients. This is why we focus on superfoods, adaptogenic and mineral-rich ingredients, fatty acids (fat-soluble components of living cells), vitamin-rich foods, and high-quality water in this phase of the protocol.


Nutrition and ageing are related

Dr. Michael Greeger, in his book called 'How Not to Die", explains that aging is an illness of the cells and that we don't die because we get old; we die because we get sick. Your nutritional requirements change as you age. You become more susceptible to certain risk factors, especially if you have not had a balanced lifestyle, including the foods you chose. It gets worse by continuing to make choices that do not nourish your cells. Changes in the body also reflect the changes required in nutritional needs.


This is How Cellular Health Affects Ageing

Nutrition whether at the cellular or holistic level is always important for your health, and it becomes even more crucial as you age. Cellular function declines with age, leading to cell damage, known as Age-Associated Cellular Decline (AACD). Identifying risk factors that affect cellular nutrition early, before substantial mobility difficulties and disease-related limits occur, can contribute to healthy aging.


Improving Cellular Health by:


Incorporating vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant-rich foods into your eating habits

Vitamins and minerals are crucial for humans as they play essential roles in various fundamental metabolic pathways that support vital cellular functions. The connection between biochemical and physiological functions is well-established for some vitamins and minerals, as is their impact on clinical outcomes since antioxidants are essential for neutralizing free radicals.


Consume enough Macros.

Macronutrients include protein, fat, carbohydrates, and water. Proteins provide amino acids for building cellular structures and enzymes, while carbohydrates are the main energy source for cell function. Fats are crucial for cellular membranes and functions. Water makes up over 70% of a cell’s total mass and enables cells to utilize essential nutrients and minerals.


Exercise Regularly

Researches revealed that engaging in exercise can enhance the quality and function of mitochondria by increasing their multiplication rate. This rejuvenates cellular energy, leading to improved nutrient absorption and overall cellular health (Sorriento et al., 2021).


Necessary sleep

Most people need 7-9 hours of sleep each night. Research shows that sleep activates repair enzymes and regulates chromosome dynamics, promoting DNA damage repair (Coulson et al., 2022).


Experiment with Fasting

Intermittent fasting involves alternating periods of fasting and eating. It activates autophagy, which removes old cells and toxins, enabling cells to function more efficiently and regenerate healthier cells.


In Conlcusion

Cellular nutrition is crucial for the functioning and health of individual cells. It ensures that cells receive the necessary nutrients and chemicals for essential processes such as energy production, metabolism, repair, and defense against oxidative stress. Well-nourished cells contribute to overall health, longevity, and disease prevention.
