Cellular health is integral to human health. Cells make up tissues, and tissues make up organs. Organs and organ systems are what make us an organism. We are at the fundamental level, made up of cells. Healthy cell life produces what we call “vitality” – a healthy level of energy and resistance to stress. These cells are the most basic units of a human which make up our bones, blood, tissues, brain, tissues, organs, organ systems and thus the organism. Thus the health and nourishment of our cells is of utmost importance to our health and wellbeing.
