A little Science: breakthrough technology that I am enjoying the benefits of: Redox signaling molecules.
Chemistry, Physics and generally, Science have never been my strength but I am open to test things and see for myself how they work in actual practice.
So far, I am absolutely blown away with redox!!!
But what is it?
Watch this 7-minute video for a simple explanation, then read the article at the bottom of this post, for depth of information:
With every breath you take, oxygen from the air rushes into your lungs, is absorbed into the hemoglobin in your blood and pumped by your heart throughout the trillions of cells in your body. If you doubt the importance of this, you can perform the simple experiment of holding your breath for a minute; as you turn blue, you will entirely convince yourself that oxygen is vitally needed by the cells in your body.
What do your cells do with all these oxygen molecules? Oxygen molecules are used by the cells to capture electrons from other molecules. Oxygen molecules have two unpaired electrons (called free radicals) that are hungry for companions. These oxygen free radicals capture available electrons from other molecules; when electrons are captured this is called “reduction”; oxygen is said to be “reduced” when it captures electrons. These electrons are stolen from other molecules; when electrons are ripped…
