This is a guest post by Dr. Marisol Teijeiro – a world leader in natural medicine and an expert on gut health. She has experienced feeling sh*tty and figured out the hierarchy on how to get healthy. She has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars experimenting with what works and what doesn’t, and she bestows
What Are Mitochondria? Mitochondria are the energy factories or powerhouses of the cell. They are organelles that take in nutrients, break them down, and create energy for the cell in a process known as cellular respiration. Each cell in the human body has hundreds to several thousand mitochondria, and they use over 90% of the
What Are Mitochondria? Mitochondria are known as the powerhouses of energy factories of the body. They are vital to our survival as they generate energy in the form of ATP from the food we eat. This process is known as cellular respiration. Mitochondria produce more than 90% of the energy needed by the body to
Background on Mitochondria Eating a healthy, phytonutrient-rich diet, exercising regularly, and getting good quality sleep are vitally important for improving energy levels, it is often difficult to do while balancing the demands of life. This is where supplements can play an essential role in mitochondrial health. We don’t believe you should rely on supplements to
Overview Mitochondria are known as the powerhouses of eukaryotic cells. They are vital to our survival as they generate energy in the form of ATP from the food we eat. This process is known as cellular respiration. In addition, mitochondria store calcium for cell signaling activities, generate heat, and mediate cell growth and death (apoptosis).
What Is Mitochondrial Biogenesis? Mitochondrial biogenesis is simply the process by which your body makes more mitochondria. This usually occurs as a result of an increased demand for energy. 1 The result of mitochondrial biogenesis is an increase in the number and size of mitochondria within a cell, which means an increased capacity to produce
The medical field is always looking for new, non-invasive treatments for common physical ailments. Patients want to be cured with as little discomfort as possible. The fewer side effects, the better. After all, medical treatments are supposed to fix medical complaints, not cause more. Today, a gentle medical procedure called red light therapy is gaining
Adrenal Fatigue is a term applied to a set of non-specific symptoms that include fatigue and extreme tiredness, weak immune system, depression, anxiety, brain fog, low blood sugar, low libido, waking up tired even after 7 or 8 hours of sleep, cravings for sugary or salty foods and trouble sleeping through the night (especially waking
Mitochondria are organelles found inside every living cell, which is why mitochondrial dysfunction is a serious. Their primary function is to supply cellular energy by producing adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Mitochondria also play an essential role in cell signaling, cellular differentiation, and cell death, as well as control of the cell cycle and cell growth 1.
There’s increasing discussion in the health world around red light therapy and whether it’s a legitimate therapeutic technique with benefits 1. On one side of the conversation, there appears to be a growing body of evidence that red and near-infrared light can be used to successfully treat a number of health conditions. On the other
