Many people have heard of cells, and have a basic understanding of them. Whether it’s from doing research like now, or it could have been in your schooling or other learning opportunities. Cells make up our bodies and keep us going. They repair our body when it’s damaged or broken down. But what is cellular health and what does it have to do with what we eat, find out how a poor diet can affect your cells.
It’s only in the last few years that the idea of cells has started to be included in the greater conversation on weight loss and diet. Cells performing at their best is critical for healthy bodies, but it can also assist with weight loss! If cells are full of energy and have no damage, they are able to work harder, longer, and more effectively. Which means that you feel and look better!
As you can see, taking care of your cells isn’t something to ignore any longer. Take some time and read through this with us for some valuable information about cells!

The immune system is a collection of white blood cells working throughout the body. Its job is to fight infections outside the cells while correcting what’s wrong inside the cells. Since cells are the foundation of our bodies, lack of proper nutrition will make them fail. This manifests in inflammatory problems like arthritis along with heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.
Studies Prove This
A recent study from the American Journal of Epidemiology found that a healthy diet of fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains minus processed foods, refined white sugars, and processed meats helped encourage healthy cell aging in women, according to Science Daily.
The study consisted of 5,000 women who participated in one of four diets. The results showed that the women enjoyed healthy cells from diets that included fresh fruits and veggies and no processed foods or sugars. On the other hand, what happens to the body if you follow a poor diet, full of processed foods and sugar?
How Bad Diets Damage Cells

Most Americans eat what they can afford to buy. Most “food”-like products are full of preservatives, heavy metals, toxins, pesticides, hormones, and other contaminants. The body can’t use these things, so they’re stored in the cells until they can be eliminated. The cells, not receiving the nutrition they need, die. The organs, muscles, and other parts of the body become deathly ill as a result.
What’s The Answer?
Eat all the fresh fruits and vegetables you can. Pass on the processed lunch meats, anything in a can or a box, and prepared “meals.” If you can’t cook it from scratch, your cells can’t use it. Drink at least three 32 ounce bottles of water per day. Hydration is just as important as a good diet for cellular health.
Cellular health isn’t just for reading in the doctor office. Taking care of yourself at the cellular level is critical to living as happy and pain-free a life as possible. With the right direction, diet, and habits, you can make your cellular health a priority.
