Companies jump on the opportunity to lead people to thinking that they may have the answer to slow down the aging process. This is something that many people are in search for but as yet the fountain of youth has not been discovered. Some may think that Asea is the next best thing.
What Is Asea?
To begin with, it is saltwater. But, its promoters also claim that it contains redox signaling molecules. Fancy words but what do they mean?
As people age their cells break down. It is part of the aging process but there are other factors that can lead to cell breakdown. Some of these are:
- Air pollution
What Happens When The Cells Breakdown?
There are the physical signs which is the aging of the skin. Along with many other break downs that lead to conditions such as
- Weakened immune systems
- Hormone imbalances
- Cardiovascular issue
- Digestive problems
And the list goes on.
This is a product that has been created to address the cellular breakdown. This is with the Redox cellular therapy. It is being promoted as being able to affect the signals that the genes deliver to different parts of the body. When it does this it allows for:
- Better immune system
- The ability of the body to respond to inflammation
- Promote cardiovascular health
- Assist the digestive system
- Help for regulating the hormones.
According to ASEA, this is the only supplement available that contains active REDOX signaling molecules. This is done by a process that the company has patented that allows for the reorganization of natural salt molecules and purified water.
So is it all HYPE or is it TRUE?
Can salt and purified water meet all these amazing claims? Can a daily dose of ASEA REDOX get your genes up to par and slow down the aging process by getting these cells to communicate with each other?
What Studies Have Been Conducted?
One would think with the number of claims being made about ASEA that there would be a good number of studies to back it up. It turns out that they have done their homework and they are not just blowing air about the signaling molecules.
If one is going to rely on studies they need to understand that not all studies are factual. There are a lot of variations that go into studies and clinical trials. The most important thing to know is that they have been carried out by reputable laboratories which seems to be the case with ASEA BUT they are farming these out to third parties so there is no real paper trail.
It is easy to hype up marketing about Trials.
What Is The Outcome?
How do consumers feel about ASEA and what are the professionals saying about it?
There are a lot of claims being made about the product and the Brand does have a very comprehensive website that does contain a lot of technical information. However, that is the business side of the product. Consumers are more interested in what the product is going to do for them. Most are interested in anything that is going to slow down the aging process.
The Professional Feedback
There are many who may fall into the categories of being professionals in the health industry. Some very knowledgeable individuals that have done a great deal of research and put pieces together. Then others that hold degrees and credentials.
Is It Snake Oil?
The product has been referred to as “snake oil”. Referring to old products that were sold off the back of wagons that had no value, but were promoted by a smooth selling salesperson.
Science-Based Medicine has done a thorough review of the ASEA website and has come to some very negative conclusions. Many of which have been openly discussed with ASEA reps on the Science site. You can review this to come to your own conclusions based on both sides of the argument. But, the bottom line is that Science-Based Medicine has stuck to their opinions of thinking that the product is nothing more than hype. There is no doubt that Steven Novella has the credentials to raise the arguments that he has done.
The product has been around for a while so one would think that at least on Amazon there would be a ton of reviews.
To date there have been 239 reviews. With a 5 star rating by 67%. Out of these there are 142 positive reviews.
There are a lot of mixed comments in the positive reviews. Where users seem to be getting different results for different things. Many talk about it being an energy booster giving them a moreover feeling of well being.
One of the big complaints was that the orders the customer was receiving were all expired. Other recent complaints are that the product is arriving damaged. Or the instructions have been changed to Spanish. These all seem to be occurrences that have taken place during 2019. This raises some questions such as:
- Is this an indicator that something is up with the Brand?
- Is it being moved or is it going to start going backward?
- Has it been burned out with the marketing and hype. Too much time has passed now for it to prove itself?
Then others who are claiming they didn’t get the results they expect or any at all and this was a waste of money.
Something To Think About
This is a product that is sold through mult- level marketing. So you are also going to get a lot of third party prmoters to build the brand. Which means those that are active may be heavily marketing positive reviews as well. The price you are going to pay depends on where and who you are buying it from.
The Choice Is Yours
There are a lot more cons than pros when it comes to ASEA and its ability to boost health and wellness. But, for those who want to go on the word of those who feel they have gotten success and can afford it then they should go for it.
This is the type of product purchase that you have to go into with open eyes and just with a hope that it might work for you.
