Totála® Cellular Health Protects Muscles against Sugar Damage*

Jul 28, 2016

PHOENIX, AZ (July, 2016) — The human body has more than 600 muscles, which enable it to breathe, pump blood, move freely, lift things, and lead an active lifestyle.[1] Excess sugar, all too common in today’s diets, damages muscles, making them stiff and weak,[2] but a new liquid mineral complex can help. Mineral Biosciences®Totála Cellular Health protects against excess sugar damage and enhances the results of nutritious food choices and exercise to maintain healthy muscles and strength.

Why Sugar Damages Muscles

Researchers at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, studied differences in muscle properties and strength among two groups: younger people with an average age of 25, and an older group with an average age of 78. All were in good health. Although muscles naturally shrink with age, this alone did not explain the degree of decreased strength and power among the older people. Muscle biopsies revealed another factor: a harmful sugar-related process known as glycation (pronounced “gly-KAY-shun”). Compared to the younger group, levels of glycation in the older one were 200% higher.[3]

What Is Glycation?

Glycation occurs when excess sugar molecules combine with proteins and form harmful rogue molecules called Advanced Glycation End-products, or AGEs.[4] As well as harming muscles, AGEs damage all the other types of tissues. Signs include older-looking skin,[5] stiffer arteries, and higher levels of chronic inflammation.[6]

HowTotála® Cellular HealthWorks

Totála Cellular Health contains Ioniplex™, a naturally-sourced plant mineral extract that is patented as an anti-glycation composition.[7] It contains at least 25 major, minor, and trace minerals in an “ionic” form, meaning very small particles that are more easily absorbed throughout the human body than other types of minerals. They are extracted with a chemical-free process from ancient mineral deposits in the United States. Millions of years ago, these locations were covered in lush vegetation and, over time, became fossilized.

Scientific research has shown that Ioniplex reduces the formation of harmful AGEs, enhances energy production within muscle cells, and helps support healthy blood sugar levels. A study published in the International Journal for Vitamin and Nutrition Research[8] tested Ioniplex on human cells and in diabetic mice. Researchers concluded: “To our best knowledge, this is the first description ever of a fossil material having anti-glycation activity in pre-clinical models.”

Two Delicious Flavors

Totála Cellular Health liquid supplement is available in two delicious flavors: Lemon-Lime, a citrus blend with a balance of sweet and sour, and Mango, with a smooth, sweet, tropical taste. Both are sweetened with monk fruit extract, a natural low-calorie alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners. Also called luo han guo, monk fruit is a small melon that was originally cultivated by Buddhist monks in southern China, centuries ago, for medicinal purposes. It has no known side effects.[9] Only a touch of monk fruit is needed, because it is approximately 100 to 250 times sweeter than sugar.[10]

How to Use Totála® Cellular Health

Take 1 capful (1 ounce) per day.

Serve cold, straight out of the bottle or mixed with water or a fruit drink.

May be added to smoothies or protein shakes.
