ASEA, with presence in Chiang Rai 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.
Chiang Rai Redox Signalling Water -ASEA
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.
Does ASEA Work As Well As It Claims About?
There have been some requests for more specific instructions on how to best use ASEA, so we’ve put together this simple list to help you get the most out of the product.
Basic Guidelines for Using ASEA: When you receive your ASEA product there are basic usage guidelines found on the bottle. Here are a few things that may answer many of your questions: A] ASEA is a natural disinfectant and antimicrobial and yet is soothing to the touch. ASEA can be used in a spray bottle for use on scrapes, burns and abrasions. It can be liberally sprayed on the skin and will not cause irritation. ASEA contains a very small amount of chlorine. If you are allergic to chlorine, it is not recommended for use on the face. As always, consult a physician if there are any concerns. B] ASEA is bottled in a clean facility. Sealed shelf life is one year. After the bottle is opened, it has a 30-day shelf life. Do not drink ASEA directly from the bottle. Avoid bottle contamination. Do not put anything in the bottle for the same reason. Open, pour and then close. Drink ASEA straight. Do not mix with water or juice or an external substance as this can reduce effectiveness. Use clean plastic or glass when taking ASEA. The recommended daily usage is two to four ounces. Take ASEA 20 minutes before or after eating anything. Not with meals or drinks. That includes brushing your teeth and chewing gum. It also helps to swish it around under your tongue a bit. ASEA is 100% safe, non-toxic and native to the body. Refrigerate ASEA if you like. Your choice. If ASEA freezes, thaw completely before consuming. Heat does not affect ASEA up to 400 degrees. If you are on a 400mg Sodium restricted diet you can be assured that ASEA has 123 mg of sodium per 4 ounces. One serving would be 3% of your daily allowance. Normal use: Start using ASEA 2-4 ounces per day as directed on the bottle.
Start using ASEA by drinking 4 oz per day for the first 30 days, then 2 oz per day for maintenance from that point on. If you are not getting the expected benefit, you can take more than the recommended dosage up to 8 or 12 oz per day with no problem return to the recommended daily dose when ready. ASEA has zero toxicity so there are no worries about overdosing or causing harm.
Athletes: Take 2-4 ozs. before your event, workout, run, bike ride, etc. Take another serving after workout for super-fast recovery. ASEA has been shown to contain no “banned substances” and has been certified clean by WADA.
Spray Bottle: is shipped with most orders. Spray ASEA anywhere on the body… safe for eyes, cuts, burns, acne, diaper rash, cold sores, etc.
