EMF Protection Starts and Stops with Our Cells


Fight EMF radiation at the cellular level with a new DNA Repair supplement that naturally protects and repairs our body's cells affected by EMFs.


Scientists estimate that humans get 30 to 100 million times the amount of electromagnetic radiation than just 100 years ago, so it's no surprise to see research piling up about the potentially negative effects of EMF exposure. And with the rollout of new 5G wireless technology in the US, health seekers are rushing to find the best EMF protection for themselves and their families.

Let's face it, there are lots of benefits to living in modern times because when there's a problem; a solution is right around the corner. Fortunately, in the case of EMF protection gear, there are innovative companies leading the way to offer EMF shielding devices, gadgets, clothing, and even jewelry. Along with good EMF reduction best-practices, these options are key to protecting our long-term health. 


EMF Exposure is Unavoidable

Even the most conscientious EMF planner can't avoid the constant man-made radiation present in modern society. Technology is everywhere, so are EMF's, and they're affecting us 24/7/365. This is why it's effects have been directly linked to DNA damage, cancer and an onslaught of other health issues. More on this coming up.

The current EMF protection options of shielding and filtering the sources of radiation are good, but they're just not enough. Unless we can completely go "off-grid" to avoid exposure, we need to address the issue at the source of the damage, and it's our cells! 

What Damage is EMF Doing Inside Our Bodies?

As you may know, DNA damage is serious business, and it's directly linked to the root of aging, and almost every known health condition. Turns out, the more than 4,000 studies on EMF exposure overwhelmingly point to DNA damage, cellular damage, and increased oxidative stress as the three primary culprits. Many of the studies, like the one from Dr. Pall, are supported by anywhere from 12 to 35 scientific reviews.[1] 

With that said, it's probably not surprising to hear the combined effects of DNA damage and oxidative stress can lead to a myriad of other issues from cognitive impairment, hormone disruption, dementia, Alzheimer's, cardiac arrest, sleep issues, fatigue, headaches, depression, dizziness, anxiety, irritability, stress, lower fertility and libido, abnormal brain development, ADHD, Autism and learning disabilities. But even with more than 4000 studies that link EMFs to this wide range of undesirable conditions, the more long-term effects of EMFs on humans are unknown and require more time to elapse before its more clear.

For obvious reasons, all of the research about the negative health effects of man-made EMF radiation has been on mice and rats, some of which were very involved. I don't know about you, but I'm not willing to volunteer for heavy doses of prolonged EMF exposure or going to wait 50 years as we did for big-cigarette companies to finally be admit smoking causes cancer. And many believe these health concerns are going to be exponentially worse with 5G technology which will bring a "thicker, denser" net of radio waves. 

There's one long-term study to keep an eye on. It's called COSMOS and in 2007 the researchers involved started following nearly 300,000 people across six European countries. Their goal is to assess their cell phone usage and health outcomes for 20–30 years.[2] 

Only time will tell what the results of this and other studies show. For the time being, we believe finding ways to protect and repair our bodies from the inside out is a critical piece of the puzzle.   


Start with a Healthy Foundation, then Optimize.

As you know, protecting our cells and minimizing DNA damage and oxidative stress starts with good habits like eating healthy, getting enough sleep, daily exercise, reducing stress, drinking clean water and taking our vitamins. 

Once you've got a solid foundation, we believe the way to optimize and thrive in a modern EMF world requires a more sophisticated approach, so it's important to take a specific supplement designed to protect and repair DNA damage, and help mitigate the potential harm from EMF exposure.


Why We Need Extra DNA Protection

Our cells and their internal DNA are constantly under attack by internal and external sources.[3,4] With the surge of EMF radiation, now more than ever, we need a plan to protect ourselves at the cellular level.

Because the body can only repair DNA damage so fast, minimizing EMF radiation is a critical first step. But eventually, when cellular DNA damage outpaces the body's ability to repair it, it leads to physical signs of aging, decreased health, quality of life, and underlies most of the conditions that kill us, such as Cancer, Alzheimer's disease and atherosclerosis.[3,6] 

Doctors and scientists now recognize that the ability to identify and repair DNA damage is the leading indicator of "who" avoids cancer and many of the other conditions associated with aging.[3,4,8]  

Fortunately, there's a supplement that we can take to protect our DNA from the onslaught of EMF's and other damage that happens around-the-clock. 

Defend Against DNA Destruction with AC-11®.

AC-11 is a unique nutrient that has been shown to boost our body's natural DNA repair mechanisms and help it recover from the damage that's already occurred.

This rare extract from the Peruvian and Brazilian Amazon rainforest touts nearly two decades of research and dozens of peer-reviewed, scientific studies. It's sustainably harvested and 100% safe and natural, with no side effects or drug interactions.

Clinical research investigating AC-11 has found this substance possesses a wide range of health benefits that support cell and DNA repair. And as you've learned, the health of our cells, specifically repairing our DNA from daily damage, is believed to be a key factor in avoiding cancer, slowing down aging and an onslaught of other health conditions.

In fact, AC-11 is one of very few documented plant chemicals proven to support DNA repair while supporting our immune system's response to inflammation.

What is AC-11®? 

AC-11 is an extract of the inner bark from Cat's Claw plants, but it's not the same as the Cat's Claw plant that can be found in any health food store – which actually may contain harmful levels of tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids (TOAs). 

Rather, AC-11 is a small mix of phytochemical compounds thought to be the specific active ingredients in Cat's Claw bark that hold the health benefits.

When AC-11 is made, it goes through hot water extraction and filtration process to remove alkaloids. Its primary proven benefit is cellular DNA repair, but we've included all of the research-based benefits below about AC-11.

Benefits of AC-11 include:

  • Enhances natural DNA repair. AC-11 helps your body naturally repair damaged DNA caused by both internal metabolism and external environmental stress.[14,16,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,28]
  • Improves anti-oxidant status.[12,20,21,22,23,24,28]
  • Increases collagen III production in the skin (Anti-wrinkle). Found in blood vessels, muscles and intestinal walls, collagen III is essential for supporting the health of our muscles, bones, and skin.[14]
  • Acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. AC-11 helps your body suppress NF-κB in cells, which helps your body fight inflammation.[9,10,13]
  • Supports healthy immune system function. AC-11 increases the effectiveness and life span of lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell important for fighting bacterial and viral diseases. Healthy lymphocytes are also necessary for enhancing our immune system and preventing inflammatory disorders from causing age-related health issues.[9,10,12,18,25,26,27,28]
  • Reduce the incidence of leukemia and lymphomas. According to clinical studies interventions into the decline in DNA Repair function, such as AC-11, may lower the incidence of leukemia and lymphomas.[24,26]
  • Supports skin repair. Increases repair of sun-damaged skin. Helps lighten skin or fades aging spots.[13,14,15,16,19]

Fight the Effects of EMFs and 5G Radiation Waves from Within. 

Healthycell's proprietary formulas contains an effective dose of AC-11(350mg) to support the protection and repair of our body's cells.

These formulas enhance DNA repair functions, and also offer antioxidant protection that works to prevent DNA damage before it starts (the other side of the cell protection coin.)

An EMF Protection Plan and EMF Protection Supplement are "requirements" for a healthier future, Healthycell's AC-11 is here to help us protect us from EMF radiation and 5G from the inside out.
