How Cells Eat

How Cells Eat

We as humans need to eat and drink to survive, but so do our cells. Our cells use a process called endocytosis, to ingest nutrients, fluids, proteins and other molecules.

During endocytosis, the cell membrane curves inward, essentially forming a mouth to engulf ingestible “food”. In order for this to happen, it starts with some cellular choking. Where the membrane begins to curve, dynamin and lipid molecules are wedged together uncomfortably. The lipids, more flexible than the proteins, shift within the membrane to relieve overcrowding. As they do so, the membrane bends even more, forming a gaping maw around the meal. The process continues until the two membrane lips meet, fully engulfing the food.

Dynamin seals the mouth shut by encircling the region where the lips meet and tightening to form a pucker. Finally, cellular energy called GTP bites down, releasing the sustenance into the cell.

Just as a good meal can be ruined by indigestion, endocytosis can be hijacked by parasites, bacteria and viruses that enter and infect human cells.

Viruses are perfect parasites. It has been known for decades that once a virus gets inside a cell, it hijacks the cellular processes to produce virally encoded protein that will replicate the virus’s genetic material. Viral mechanisms are capable of translocating proteins and genetic material from the cell and assembling them into new virus particles. Contemporary research has revealed specific mechanisms viruses use to get inside cells and infect them.

Having a healthy immune system protects us by first creating a barrier that stops those invaders, or antigens, from entering the body. And if one slips by the barrier, the immune system produces white blood cells, and other chemicals and proteins that attack and destroy these foreign substances. It’s inevitable that a virus or bacteria is going to enter our bodies, it’s how our body responds that keeps us healthy or gets us sick.

Also the “food” you are feeding your cells has to be small enough to penetrate the cell membrane AND survive the stomach’s acid.

REVIVIFY® is a supplement that has the absolute best immune fighting nutrients on the planet. It has a patented process that makes the molecule small enough to enter the cell and it survives stomach acid.

With 2 patented ingredients and a patented process REVIVIFY® is the world’s best supplement for the immune system.
