So what exactly is the new USANA® InCelligence Technology™? What makes InCelligence a large leap forward in personalized cellular health?
Understanding the Word “InCelligence”
The word itself, “InCelligence”, lays out the big picture for understanding what Dr. Myron Wentz and his brilliant team of scientists at USANA Health Sciences are unlocking at the cellular level. “InCelligence” is a term derived from the concept of “inherent cellular intelligence.” In other words, our cells are smart! They are designed with a built in intelligence to operate the millions of cellular functions for us to be alive. Our cells in our body know how to make hormones, regulate our breathing, break down our food, store our memories. The examples are endless on the functions that happen in our body every day, every minute, every second without us thinking about them or managing the processes!
Our Cells are Talking to Each Other! What Information are They Sharing?
To take this a step further, our cells are talking to each other – sharing critical information that allows the body’s systems to work together for life. The information that is shared is what is referred to as “cell signaling”.
Listen to Dr. Kevin Spelmen, USANA’s Executive Vice President of Research & Development, as he talks about the information we receive from our food:
“Did you know that each mouthful of food you eat carries a specific message to your cells? All food is information. Whether you choose to put an orange slice in your mouth or a cookie, it is actually carrying information to your cells, talking to them, inducing a response.”
The nutrient in our food act as messengers that begin the cell signaling though the incredible pathways throughout the body, signaling the “on/off” switches throughout the many important cellular functions that operate 24/7 without our knowledge.
Just like the operating system of a computer. Having the operating system with the right information is critical for all the computer applications to operate and to work together. If there is “misinformation” in the operating system, many (maybe even all) applications will be affected and will not operate effectively.
Dr. Spelmen continues with what happens when we get misinformation from our food:
“What message do you think the orange is carrying to your DNA versus a processed and packaged chocolate chip cookie?” Just as healthy food choices will deliver good information to your cells, poor dietary choices can misinform your cells. When you think of all the manmade, processed foods we consume, all the pesticides that get into our food, and all the nonsensical molecules used in snack foods like polyester sucrose, you are introducing something that your cells have never seen before, so what kind of misinformation does a new-to- nature molecule, such as a pesticide or preservative relay to your DNA?”
Dr. Spelman explains that, in essence, our bodies don’t know what to do with this kind of misinformation:
“Enough of this misinformation, or confusion, causes consistently wrong signaling to occur deep within the cells of the body. This misinformation can potentially lead to negative outcomes. You really do steep your DNA in your daily dietary choices. So, it’s important to make sure you are making good nutritional choices. This way your DNA is receiving good information.”
USANA® InCelligence Technology™ – Triggering the Right Information
USANA® InCelligence Technology™ utilizes nutrients and plant-derived biomolecules to target specific cell-signaling pathways that unlock the code of your innate cellular intelligence.* This scientifically formulated combination, shares specific positive information to specific health-optimizing pathways.
Dr. Spelman continues:
“The cell-signaling technology used in InCelligence can be compared to a special code that opens a secret chamber. “When InCelligence nutrients are received at cellular sites, it’s like a code that turns on, or activates, signaling pathways for molecular processes that protect and renew health. Our bodies naturally do these processes, but age or other lifestyle factors can slow them down. InCelligence supports these communication pathways so they are functioning optimally, which can help clear up misinformation in the long run.”*
This is a very exciting development in personalized nutrition! The USANA® InCelligence Technology™ is designed to unlock the specific code within each of us. Each person’s needs are different. The misinformation that has gathered within our cells is also different. The USANA® InCelligence Technology™ speaks the language of our own personal cells. This can help our cells adapt and respond to our personal needs as it triggers the health optimizing pathways of our personal “inherent cellular intelligence.”*
