ASEA, the Company
ASEA LLC is an emerging global leader in developing, manufacturing, and marketing high-quality cellular health products. ASEA officially launched in 2010 with its inaugural product based on cutting-edge technology known as redox signaling. The launch of ASEA Redox Supplement was so well received by consumers that the company was able to build a multimillion-dollar global enterprise based on this single product. Subsequently, in 2014, the company introduced RENU 28, a revitalizing whole-body skin gel that also leverages the benefits of redox signaling molecules topically. Since its launch, ASEA has enjoyed burgeoning success and today operates in 26 international markets. The goal of ASEA founders and executives is to continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible in the cellular health category, developing and marketing products that address global megatrends towards natural solutions to individuals’ overall health and wellness.
Product Safety and Efficacy
While the science of redox signaling is relatively new and ASEA is just a few years old, the company has pursued a strategic research agenda to validate the product. The first strategy was to determine its safety, which was confirmed in a 12-week trial with more than 100 participants.
Once safety was confirmed, ASEA has pursued a number of studies to validate the efficacy of its products. Studies on both ASEA Redox Supplement and RENU 28 are published on the ASEA Global website.
While the science behind ASEA’s redox signaling technology may seem new to some, it is gaining attention from researchers and has been the subject of upwards of 10,000 peer-reviewed scientific papers. A simple search on Google Scholar for the term redox signaling provides a glimpse at some of the credible research being conducted in the field of redox signaling science. And the fact that there is a monthly scientific journal by the name of ARS Discoveries (Antioxidants & Redox Signaling) devoted to research regarding redox signaling is further evidence of the validity of this exciting, emerging science.
As research catches up with the groundbreaking nature of ASEA’s technology redox signaling it will take its place among some of the most significant scientific breakthroughs of the late 20th century.
Frequently Asked Questions
ASEA Founder Verdis Norton was first introduced to redox signaling biochemistry while serving on the board of a Utah biotech company. The company’s preliminary work in redox molecule synthesis had produced promising results, but a lack of funds forced them to shelf the project early. Convinced of its breakthrough potential, Verdis and a few close partners pooled resources to acquire the discontinued tech and revive the research. ASEA commissioned its own team of medical professionals, scientists, and engineers to advance the technology, conducting a comprehensive safety analysis and producing a scalable method of production for ASEA REDOX Cell Signaling Supplement and future redox signaling products.
Yes. ASEA has patented the processes used to produce its redox products: ASEA REDOX Cell Signaling Supplement, RENU 28 Revitalizing Redox Gel, and RENU Advanced Intensive Redox Serum. Patent information is available by request.
First, it’s important to remember that redox signaling is a natural biological process that safely occurs in every cell of our bodies. The redox signaling molecules in ASEA products are native to the body and easily assimilated. Studies have consistently shown that ASEA’s redox products are safe and effective. See product label for recommended serving amounts by age.
All ASEA redox products are manufactured at the ASEA Redox Center, an FDA-registered, NSF-registered facility located within a mile of ASEA global headquarters in Pleasant Grove, Utah. The ASEA Redox Center is owned and operated by ASEA to meet all FDA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). These GMP requirements are listed in Section 8 of NSF/ANSI 173, the only accredited American National Standard in the dietary supplement industry developed in accordance with the FDA’s 21 CFR part 111.
Redox signaling is a maturing area of research within the fields of cell biology and metabolic studies. A peer-reviewed scientific journal dedicated to understanding the vital impact of redox processes on human health and disease was established in 1999. Estimates put the number of peer-reviewed papers on the topic somewhere in the tens of thousands.
The discovery and study of human cells began in the 19th century, but it wasn’t until the latter part of 20th century that cells were understood in enough detail to begin observing and theorizing the forms of signaling behind cell activity. By 1999, the role of redox within cell signaling was understood and formalized enough to prompt the creation of a peer-reviewed scientific journal on the topic.
The processes of metabolism and cellular respiration saw discoveries in the 1930s and ’40s that illuminated the methods by which the human body uses oxygen and redox processes to fuel vital functions. Research in the 1950s and ’60s provided early clues into the molecular basis of cell signaling, though scientific papers didn’t begin talking about cell signaling as a distinct discipline consistently until the ’80s and ’90s.
The term redox is scientific shorthand for reduction-oxidation reaction, a biologically important electron-transfer reaction that plays a significant support role in many of the body’s life-sustaining processes, notably energy-providing metabolic functions.
The healthy upkeep of the body depends on communication between cells in every tissue, organ, and system. This vital intercellular communication ensures that messages are delivered and received to modulate cell production, initiate and sustain repair mechanisms, and perform other restorative processes. The molecules involved in this communication are called cell signaling molecules.
During cellular respiration, the body produces small molecules with redox potential. These are redox molecules, and because many of them can perform cell signaling functions, these types of redox molecules constitute their own important class of cell signaling molecules called redox signaling molecules. Any cell signaling function carried out specifically by redox signaling molecules is known as redox signaling.
Redox signaling molecules are produced in every cell of the body through natural metabolic processes. Until the 21st century, such biological processes were the only known source of redox signaling molecules. That changed in the early 2000s, when ASEA developed its groundbreaking, patented process to produce redox signaling molecules from refined salt and purified water—making the first and only supplement on the market verified to contain active redox signaling molecules.
While most ordinary dietary supplements provide only nutrients with the human body does not synthesize, the biological deficiencies caused by ageing and cellular breakdown go deeper than just nutrition. As stress, diet, air quality, and other environmental factors cause cellular breakdown over time, the body’s naturally supplied balance of redox signaling molecules is compromised—creating a need for supplemental redox molecules like those found in ASEA REDOX Cell Signaling Supplement.
In 2016, ASEA commissioned a scientific study that used gene expression as the key performance indicator for ASEA REDOX Cell Signaling Supplement. The study found that, over eight weeks, those who drank ASEA REDOX daily experienced a 20–31% beneficial and stable change in gene expression in five genes involved in pathway signaling.
The nucleus is the cellular “brain,” which holds information about the cell’s specialized function in small segments of DNA called genes. Gene expression is the process by which genetic information is accessed and applied to orchestrate cellular function; without it, cells would be unable to perform life-sustaining tasks. The supplemental redox molecules found in ASEA REDOX Cell Signaling Supplement have been shown to affect genetic expression in a positive way, helping to protect, rejuvenate, and enhance cellular function.
A series of chain reactions (or cascades) initiated by signals at the cellular level cue cellular responses that maintain the balanced biological activity that keeps your body functioning. Signaling pathways guide the progression of these cellular responses, including genetic responses, determining their scope and overall effect in the body. Some pathways are extensive and can influence a wide range of physiological behaviors. For example, the genes affected by ASEA REDOX play a significant role in influencing five key areas of health:
- Vascular Health
- Innate Immune System Response
- Inflammation Reduction
- Hormone Modulation
- Digestive Enzyme Production
