Strong Cells Need:

Among the constituents these four elements are essential to forming a strong cell. 

The human body is made up of over 100 trillion cells.  

Optimising the functionality of one cell, supports the functionality of all the other cells and therefore the entire body. 

Cells form our tissues. These tissues form our organs. These organs form systems. These organs run our entire body.  

Our cells perform 20,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (20 sextillion) chemical reactions every second and are constantly communicating with each other as they depend on each other to function. 


78 Bioavailable Minerals and Trace Elements in the Correct Proportions

Minerals and trace elements are essential for the tens of thousands of biochemical processes that occur in our cells, throughout the human body at any given moment. 

In the body the main functions of minerals and trace elements are; to provide structural materials for bones and other connective tissues, to allow for electrical impulses to move along nerves, to act as catalysts for enzymes to transfer food into energy and for the reproduction of Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA).  

Dr Henry Schroeder, a mineral science pioneer observed that minerals are the “spark plugs of life “. He recognised that minerals are the foundation of good health, integrating physical and spiritual balance; including regulating metabolism and optimising the functioning of cells, in which life-supporting energy is produced.  

Mineral balancing is more than the sum of its parts. It is a harmony of communication between the “minerals building blocks” and human DNA. The DNA holds information to be read like an open book, and the mineral phosphate keeps the book open. Proper genetic expression is impossible in the presence of “too many” or “too little” of any one specific mineral.  

According to Dr. Richard Olree, the human genome needs 64 minerals. He explains that “cells are all protein producers” and each genetic code requires a mineral. If a trace mineral is unavailable to produce the amino acid required by the DNA code, the human system will resort to using a different set of amino acids and minerals. This can have profound impacts on health span and longevity. Minerals are essential for our genetic make-up. DNA contains the genetic instructions for the development and function of all living things. The ionic equilibrium of the composition of elements must be maintained. Cellnutrition Quinton provides all 78 minerals and trace elements, (total mineral homeostasis) which means that genes can be read, expressed and transcribed correctly.  

The major minerals are magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, calcium, chlorine and sulphur. The remaining minerals are classified as trace elements or trace minerals which are required in the cells in smaller amounts. They also play a vital role.    

Each of our cells has a membrane which acts as a barrier so the cell can selectively take in nutrients and excrete toxins, to form a favourable inner environment.  

What is a favourable inner environment?

Our internal environment or terrain can also be referred to as the extracellular matrix (ECM). This inner environment is fundamentally composed of a unique composition that is generated through a biochemical and biophysical dialogue between cellular components and the evolving cellular and protein microenvironment.  

What makes a favourable inner environment?

In the late 1800’s Rene Quinton, French biologist and physiologist discovered that the requirements of an optimal internal environment of a cell are identical to seawater, where life began. In sea life this inner environment contains most of the elements of the sea itself, explaining the mineral needs of all living cells. 

What type of minerals do our cells need?

In terms of modern-day nutrition, we cannot get all the minerals our cells need to work properly from diet alone.  

The breakdown in the food chain affects us through the food that is consumed weakening the immune system and producing harmful synergies which are depleting the biological basis of the human.  

There are many different forms of minerals including salts, chelates, ionised and colloidal minerals. Each different form of mineral will influence the body differently. Ionised minerals do not require dissolving and are not bound to other molecules which require digestion.  

Cellnutrition Quinton is from the Ocean. It is the only mineral supplement that provides all 78 minerals and trace elements, in a perfect synergistic ratio and in a fully bioavailable form. This means that each mineral and trace element can be effectively absorbed and used by the body to improve functionality of every cell.  

Why do we need minerals and trace elements in the correct proportions?

Minerals and trace elements all work in synergy with one another. This means they depend on each other for their absorption and utilisation in the human body.  

Dr Richard Orlee explains the requirement of 64 minerals and trace elements for DNA and Rene Quinton discovered that the favourable internal terrain of the human body was identical to that of seawater. 

The only place on earth where all 78 mineral and trace elements are present together, in the correct proportions and in a bioavailable form is in our Ocean.  

Who is Rene Quinton?

Rene Quinton was a French Physiologist, who whilst at the Laboratoire de Pathologie Physiologique at the College de France studied comparative temperature and salt concentration between different species. He demonstrated within his Law of Marine Constancy that for an evolving organism to successfully leave the Ocean, it had to take a life supporting solution with it. He concluded that a human’s own internal body terrain has evolved from the Ocean itself. This research led Quinton to identify the plankton bloom vortex in the Ocean. This is where microscopic plankton release a mix of nutrient rich bioactive minerals, trace elements, amino acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids and other antioxidants into the water.  

Rene Quinton used a specific protocol, harvesting 30M beneath sea level which is where the plankton blooms and because this is the only place where the minerals and trace elements are fully bioavailable. He also used a specific filtering system to cold micro-filter the seawater to retain its purity and effectiveness.  

Between 1887 and 1904, René Quinton used his sea water treatment recording observations enabling him to fine tune a “method” with the help of keen doctors, teachers and distinguished heads of hospitals. 

In 1904 René Quinton published his most important work “L’Eau de Mer, milieu organique”.  

Cellnutrition Quinton continues to be harvested beneath the same pristine plankton blooms in the Ocean as it was more than 100 years ago. These are the purest areas of the sea and the only place where all 78 minerals and trace elements are present together in a bioavailable form. Cellnutrition Quinton is produced to a pharmaceutical grade in state-of-the-art laboratories in Spain. It goes through a process of double cold-micro filtration and it is packaged in unique glass ampoules to protect the integrity of the elements present. 

Why should we supplement with minerals?

To ensure an optimal inner environment and support cells optimally, each cell requires the full spectrum of bioavailable minerals and trace elements. Food today no longer provides the minerals and trace elements that our cells require because of the breakdown in our food chain due to poor soil quality, genetic modification, early harvesting and the use of antibiotics in food.  

If the cell is deficient in one or more of the minerals it may lead to many symptoms including insomnia, fatigue, anxiety, muscle cramps and high blood pressure. It is important to acknowledge these symptoms as blood levels do not always give a clear indication to overall health status. For example, although Calcium deficiency is acknowledged when it comes to Osteoporosis, other mineral deficiencies may also be present, such as Magnesium. Low levels of Magnesium impact on stores of Calcium in the blood. 

Before a deficiency disease occurs, levels of nutrients decrease in the blood and extracellular fluid and stores are taken from bone and other tissues to maintain steady levels. As the cells cannot carry out their functions optimally, a functional disease may occur affecting the tissues. This explains why blood levels of Calcium may appear to be normal when bone and tissues are being robbed of Calcium. 

An excess or deficiency in any one mineral or trace element may offset all the other minerals it works in synergy with, leading to a multitude of symptoms. 

As Cellnutrition Quinton provides the full spectrum of minerals and trace elements and in a bioavailable form, it removes any potential risk of lack/excess of minerals from supplementation. Through cellular communication, Cellnutrition Quinton supports the functioning of all the cells in the body. 


Fats that Provide Essential Fatty Acids in the Correct Form and in the Correct Ratios

Fats are classified as an essential macronutrient as they are required in large amounts for optimal health and function of the body and cannot be made by the body itself.  

They have a range of different functions in the body. They are part of cell membranes and help maintain fluidity, aid growth and vitality, are involved in transporting nutrients in and toxins out of our cells and are needed for energy production mechanisms. They are also important for brain development, vision, reducing joint pain associated with inflammation, good mental state, weight management, hormone production and the health of hair, skin and nails. 

Holman (1970) and Vergroesen (1976) state that a deficiency in essential fatty acids can lead to a range of symptoms including growth retardation, increased skin permeability for water, increased susceptibility to bacterial infection, impaired cholesterol, decreased ATP synthesis in the heart and liver and decreased visual acuity. 

What type of fats do our cells need?

In the human body cell membranes physically separate the inside and the outside of cells and control the movement of substances in and out of the cells. These cell membranes are mainly made of phospholipids, triglycerides and cholesterol. The type of fatty acids we consume therefore affects the arrangement and therefore the fluidity of the cell membrane.  

Whilst there are many different types of fat, some fats contain essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids (EFA) include Oemga-6, linoleic acid (LA) and Omega-3, alpha linolenic acid (ALA) which must be provided by the diet. LA and ALA can be converted to longer chain fatty acids and compounds with hormone-like or inflammatory properties (such as prostaglandins or leukotrienes). 

Essential fatty acids are therefore involved in other physiological processes such as blood clotting, wound healing and inflammation. The body can convert LA and ALA into the long chain versions arachidonic acid (AA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). 

The brain is 60% fat and has a unique composition of fatty acids. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is in high concentrations in the brain and retina.  

The longer chain fatty acids EPA and DHA are “conditionally essential” and it is recommended to consume direct sources of these long chain fatty acids. The richest source of EPA and DHA is oily fish, including salmon, mackerel and anchovies.  

What makes a favourable inner environment?

Essential fatty acids must be obtained in the correct ratios for health. The ‘golden ratio’ of Omega 6:Omega 3 is 4:1. Due to Omega 6 being highly present in vegetable oils, it is abundant in the western diet, as it is in most convenience foods and processed foods. As a result, the consumption of Omega 6 to Omega 3 is a lot higher to what it should be, and the ratio is closer to 12:1 or even 25:1. 

What is the best form to supplement?

There has been controversy as to the health benefits of fat in the diet with some labelled ‘bad’ and others ‘good’. As explained some fats contain fatty acids which are essential for health whilst others are detrimental. This is based on the type of fat consumed and the balance of EFA we get from it.  

The two classes of essential fatty acids we require are Omega-3 and Omega-6.  

Omega-3, Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is present in small amounts in many oils but flaxseed oil is one of the richest sources. ALA can be converted into EPA and DHA in the body. A deficiency of ALA can lead to a range of symptoms including inflammation, high blood pressure, impaired vision and poor cognitive function. 

Generally, the chemical processes that are used to make oils leaves them with high levels of toxins and provide them in the form of triglycerides.  

Omegabiocell369 is a 100% plant-based, ultra-pure Omega Oil. It contains a unique composition of four plant oils, Linseed, Borage, Blackcurrant and Evening Primrose Oil to provide the highest concentration of Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9. Linseed is one of the richest sources of Omega 3 - ALA. Borage, evening primrose and blackcurrant oil provide Omega 6 – gamma-linoleic acid (GLA). Borage and Blackcurrant also provide Vitamin E, which is known for its antioxidant properties.  

A unique patented, bio-ester technology is used to produce Omegabiocell369. This provides the EFA in the form of Ethyl Esters. Ethyl Esters have a much simpler structure in comparison to Triglycerides and this enables the EFA from Omegabiocell369 to have high bioavailability and excellent bioretention in the cells. As the peak of absorption of the EFA is slower in the form of Ethyl Esters, compared with Triglycerides, they stay in the cells for longer, having more lasting benefits. 

The process used requires a four-step purification process, this ensures Omegabiocell369 only contains ultra-pure EFA, removing all toxins present in plant oils. This is the only Omega Oil that has been created using this unique technology to present 100% plant-based ultra-pure Omega-3, 6 and 9. 


Water that Works throughout the Body at a Cellular Level

Hydration is one of the most important aspects for immunity, sleep and overall health. Hydration includes the fluids and nutrients we consume. Minerals and trace elements are essential for hydration. The water content in the body varies depending on age, gender and body composition.  

What are the functions of water?

Water is essential for the life of every cell and has several essential functions in the body; it regulates internal body temperature. It transports nutrients to our cells, assists the flushing of waste through urination, acts as a shock absorber for the brain and it helps to lubricate our joints. 

 

How does Cellnutrition Quinton help?

Cellnutrition Quinton is not like the huge range of inferior products containing a few electrolytes. Other products wrongly claim they can improve your conditioning and circulation, without giving you the full complement of electrolytes required. These products tend to focus on varying the concentrations of a small number of electrolytes such as Sodium, Potassium, Chloride, with some including Calcium, Magnesium and vitamins with or without a carbohydrate source and artificial sweeteners. What these products don’t consider is the importance of the rest of the elements for effective and efficient hydration and metabolism. 

Research has established the complex inter-relationship of minerals and trace elements. The interrelation between all the elements explains why supplementing with only a few of the higher concentration electrolytes unbalances the homeostasis and compromises the body’s ability to utilise the rest of the electrolytes to maximum advantage. The body can only fully utilise all the required elements for hydration if they are all present in the correct proportions. 

Both the circulation and cells must be hydrated as uniquely provided by Cellnutrition Quinton. The higher the intracellular water levels, the more difficult it is for the body to lose water and to over-heat and raise the core body temperature. Proper hydration at the cellular level is part of what optimises muscle cell function, leading to many benefits including a reduction in muscle fatigue. The only way to restore full hydration at a cellular level is to replace every mineral and trace element not just a few - the only product that naturally provides all of these is Cellnutrition Quinton. 

The cells in our bodies are full of water. The ability of water to dissolve substances allows our cells to use nutrients in biological processes. The carbohydrates and proteins that our bodies use as food are metabolized and transported by water in the bloodstream.   

Optimal hydration means having enough water in the body for cells to function correctly. Maintaining a balance of water coming in and out of our bodies helps to keep us hydrated so that the body can complete its functions. However, if we don’t maintain water balance, we can become dehydrated which may lead to to cellular dysfunction.  

What minerals and trace elements are required for metabolism?

Blood glucose levels and metabolic reactions are similarly controlled and optimised by providing the full complement and correct proportions of all minerals and trace elements found in Cellnutrition Quinton.  

Metabolic reactions use up these elements, which unless they are replaced, reduces metabolism as well as cellular hydration.  

When it comes to the cells, the concentrations of the main minerals and trace elements Sodium, Potassium, and Chloride are actively controlled and partitioned across the cell membrane in certain concentrations to maintain the electrical potential and homeostasis within the body. It is the presence of the other minerals and trace elements that are mainly responsible for drawing water from the circulation into the cells. This happens in several ways. The trace elements move into the cells and increase the concentration of solutes in the cell which draws water in by osmosis. They may also alter the structure of the aquaporins (channels through which water moves) to facilitate this movement.  

Cellnutrition Quinton is unique in that it contains these trace elements in the correct proportions that move into the cells in order to increase water influx and hold it. This results in sustained cellular hydration.  

Cellular water is not simply the medium within which substances are dissolved and reactions take place. Water plays a crucial role in the structure and therefore the function of proteins, enzymes and even DNA within the cell. Inside the cells the extra elements in Cellnutrition Quinton also influence the biophysical environment in favour of protein folding structures that increase their surface area.   

Water has been shown to have a 4th phase which is a semi-crystalline structure that is induced next to hydrophilic surfaces such as the surface of proteins and membranes. The greater the hydrophilic surface area, the more water is held as 4th phase water. This allows more water to move into the cell so that the concentration of unstructured water molecules is maintained. It has been suggested that in forming 4th phase water, electrons are released which take part in energy metabolism and the conversion of ADP to ATP which then breaks down to ADP thereby releasing energy to be utilised within the cell. This involvement within the recycling of ADP and ATP also helps explain the glucose-stabilising effect of Cellnutrition Quinton. 


Water that Works throughout the Body at a Cellular Level

Energy metabolism to do work within the cells (e.g. muscle contraction, nerve conductivity etc.) generates heat which must be dissipated if the body is to maintain the normal body temperature within the optimum range and not over-heat. The higher the level of intracellular water the better this heat is dissipated at the source of its generation. This means that well-hydrated cells can do more intensive work which converts to a higher level of physical and mental activity. It could be argued that the level of intracellular water is therefore more crucial in determining how cells function at high intensity than circulation hydration and thus determines the upper limitation of performance.  

There are very limited stores of ATP and CP in the muscles which are rapidly used up after only a few seconds. This pathway generates explosive power for sprints and events that are short-lived. Recovery is relatively quick to be ready to sprint again. The second pathway is aerobic glycolysis. It requires oxygen for metabolism. The oxygen reacts with glucose to generate up to 38 ATP molecules per glucose molecule. This pathway can be sustained to deliver moderately intense activity if the cells are supplied with glucose from glycogen stores in the muscles and liver and if the red blood cells (RBCs) keep delivering oxygen.  

When glycogen stores are depleted the body can utilise fat stores but these are slower to break down, producing a reduced delivery of energy and therefore come into play more during endurance events. When RBCs run low on glucose and compromise oxygen delivery, energy metabolism in muscles is forced to function as anaerobic glycolysis which generates only 2 ATP per glucose molecule. This also produces lactic acid which is an important factor is predisposing muscles to cramp and injury.  

Minerals and trace elements have important roles in metabolism as co-factors and catalysts and are pivotal in determining when the switch to less efficient pathways occurs, compromising performance in terms of stamina. Because the full spectrum of minerals and trace elements are present, Cellnutrition Quinton enhances stamina by significantly delaying the switch to anaerobic metabolism by optimising cell metabolism and regulating blood sugar. This ensures cells (especially brain and red blood cells) are given enough glucose and oxygen for as long as possible. A lack of minerals and trace elements therefore contributes to muscle fatigue and resulting injuries. 

The cells in the body are like batteries. Water has an electrical energy and is their fuel. If we don’t hold enough water in our cells, the cell can’t function which may lead to a cascade for low energy and chronic illness.  

Water provides us with energy, but it needs to be able to flow through us. Minerals which are positively and negatively charged are vital as they are what enable the cells to hold on to water, so the water consumed can flow through the body effectively to generate more energy.
