ASEA, with presence in Bangkok Yai now, is an emerging global leader in developing, manufacturing, and marketing high-quality cellular health products. AEA officially launched in 2010 with its inaugural product based on cutting-edge technology known as redox signalling. The launch of ASEA Redox Supplement was so well received by consumers and the company soon become a multi-million-dollar global enterprise. ASEA patented technology restructures salt and water to produce the life-sustaining molecules outside the body. ASEA operates in 26 international markets and is poised to expand in Asia. The goal of ASEA founders and executives is to continue to focus on cellular health category, develop products that address natural solutions to our overall health and wellness.
Bangkok Yai Redox Signalling Water -ASEA
I am about 3 months into continuous use of ASEA— both the original ‘water’ for internal consumption and Renu 28 for topical application. They are both essentially the same product, Renu 28 being a concentrated gel version of the original. From the very first moment ASEA touched my lips, my intuition said “Yes!” It tasted like the water from a just-cleaned swimming pool— a little bit salty and slightly chlorinated. And right from the very first application of the gel on my skin, I could see and feel its undeniable efficacy almost immediately.
For about 6 months prior I had been battling a first-ever stubborn flare-up of psoriasis on the palm of my hand. Virtually the whole palm was inflamed with a red and crusty itchiness. Whatever I had tried couldn’t seem to stop its inexorable spread… until I tried the ASEA redox gel. It immediately began to look better and to FEEL better. But that was just the beginning.
Incomplete Healing and Aging : I’m in my fifties now. Since I’ve been using the two-premiere redox signaling products, Restore and ASEA, I’ve come to a new understanding of the aging process— an understanding back-engineered from the healing process itself. It seems to me that my experience of aging has been a slow accumulation of health challenges throughout my lifetime which never completely resolved themselves at the time they first presented. These would include things like old injuries, subclinical infections (sinuses), susceptibility to cold sores (herpes), skin outbreaks (pimples, boils, rashes, etc), stiffening joints (shoulders and knees), intestinal gas, lower back pain, mild tension headaches, unexplained muscle soreness… the list goes on and on. These types of things would flare up from time to time and then die down again, but I could always tell that they hadn’t been completely healed even when the symptoms would diminish to a tolerable level.
All of these things together have a cumulative effect, placing a growing burden upon the immune system. My immune system has done a remarkable job of coping with each and every challenge to the best of its ability. However, in each and every one of these instances, as the immune system fails to return my body back to perfect balance, homeostasis— even though I may be symptom-free for a time— there is a cumulative burden placed upon my immunities which eventually becomes overwhelming. We call that “the common signs of aging.”
In particular, it seems to me that in trying to cope with so many things at once, the clear signals which are required for complete and perfect healing are increasingly lost in the static and noise of increasing toxicity and stress. After time, the immune system’s ability to sort out all of the myriad distress signals and its ability to marshal appropriate intelligent responses becomes critically compromised. The result is a cascading deterioration presenting as more and more ‘visible’ symptoms— some familiar, some not.
Just by consistently providing the means for significantly improved internal communication (redox signalling), our overburdened immune systems gain the opportunity for sorting it all out and respond accordingly. That has been my personal experience.
Is ASEA Capable Of Curing All That Ails You?
When we talk about water, we have regular tap water, filtered tap water, bottled water, purified bottled water, and purified bottled water that has things added to it. Anyone will tell you that tap water is the cheapest option, but clearly many people want more from their water than not developing a parasite. I admit to filtering my own water, mostly because ancient piping to my home contains slightly too much lead for my tastes. So ASEA clearly falls into the category of purified water with something added. But does it go beyond water? Will four ounces a day really do this? “Regardless of age, gender, or genetic disposition, ASEA Redox Supplement provides your body what it needs to stay active and healthy longer.” It helps everyone?
Well, ask the simpler question? Does water help everyone? Yes, it does. Dehydration can kill. Rehydrating a person can help with anything from constipation to heart failure to failure to thrive in infants. And with our current level of knowledge it is virtually impossible to tell how truly dehydrated a person is. So rehydrating a person, using anything from oral tap water to IV solution is very helpful.
Does that mean that ASEA is what it says it is? Not necessarily. Based on the Amazon cost, ASEA is likely eight times as expensive as a high-end, souped up, flavor added premium water. If you look at Amazon, the results are spectacular to not-at-all to severe side effects (itching, nausea). Despite ASEA’s claim that they are very different from other products, the packaging lists salt and water on the label. A quick search of the internet will find dozens of “water cure” options, including many that use salt as an additive. The general idea is to consume massive amounts of water, which then improves your health. By this standard, ASEA falls far short of the required amounts.
So does ASEA have some miraculous way of making sure the salt in the water stays in solution separately? We don’t know. Supplement geek went through all the studies, and I won’t replicate his findings, just say that the individual claims don’t seem to play out in an overall picture in human testing.
But have the experts at ASEA found a way to maintain redox molecules in solution in a stable form? Let’s start with the reality that they are not doing so chemically, because no other chemical is present. So the only way that they could separate ions and maintain stability would be through an electromagnetic process, either heating, applying electricity, etc. Then the ionized material would be added to the water, or the salt-water itself would be ionized.
Other companies have water ionizers on the market, selling them directly to consumers. They don’t add salt to the water, which would tend to stabilize any ionization. But their products also lack significant human trials.
Now, the argument would be if ASEA is capable of maintaining the ionization of salt water while on the shelf. But the reality is that normal salt water, without anything magical added, maintains a certain amount of ionization in solution. Salt is an electrolyte, and “electrolytes are molecules that dissociate in water forming cations (positively charged ions) and anions (negatively charged ions).”
In regular water this isn’t a huge factor. “The degree of ionization of water is very low and the number of water molecules dissociated into ions is minuscule.” But that ionization can be altered by adding an electrolyte: “dissolved substances alter the concentration of either hydrogen ions or hydroxide ions, a concomitant change of the same magnitude must occur in the other ion to maintain constant the ionic product for water.”
So what happens when you add salt to the body? A great deal. Salt is sodium chloride: “the main anions normally circulating in human plasma are chloride and bicarbonate, while the most abundant plasma cation is sodium. Alterations in the concentration of these ions that modify their relative proportion inducing an electrical imbalance are the predominant cause of acid-base disorders.”
The effect of salt on the human body is so profound that we see regular MDs recommending avoiding too much salt to help prevent cardiovascular disease. This advice may not result in any long-term benefit but it is broad-based and worldwide. So drinking salt water, not necessarily anything with an ASEA-style “magical” intervention, might affect the human body dramatically.
So as far as I can tell drinking large quantities of water, and large quantities of water with salt, will both affect the human body. Glancing at the comments of people drinking ASEA I feel like both the possible perceived benefits and the side effects of ASEA could be explained by drinking salt water. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the proprietary processing of ASEA is likely some sort of ionizing machine that they found wouldn’t hold the ionization in solution without the addition of salt. So they added salt to stabilize the ionization longer.
If that’s the case, does ionized water help humans? Short answer, we don’t know. Longer answer, it may help when the kidneys are severely compromised, but we only have animal studies at this point.
