Mitochondria news, articles and information:

Restoring cellular energy - The key to optimal health

5/6/2016 - When most people think about their health, they think in terms of symptoms and treatments. Conventional medicine promotes this way of thinking by merely focusing on outward signs of disease without much attention to the cause. The most obvious (important) area overlooked by Western medicine is cellular...

Mercury in vaccines causes cellular mitochondria to suffocate and die

1/12/2016 - Mitochondrial damage is known to play a key role in a wide range of disorders, including schizophrenia, diabetes, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, migraine, strokes, chronic fatigue syndrome and autism. Only recently it has been discovered that most mitochondrial damage is actually caused by our physicians...

Three-parent babies to soon be legalized in UK

12/10/2015 - In the United Kingdom, procreating is heading down a "slippery slope," some are saying. Soon, having a baby might no longer be between just one man and one woman. A new law in the UK would allow a man to procreate using the cells from two women using a controversial mitochondrial transfer procedure. The...

Three major ways to improve your mitochondrial function

9/7/2015 - Mitochondria are unique organelles contained in every cell of the human body, other than red blood cells, and they contain their own unique DNA. Mitochondria are involved in nearly every major metabolic process, and they help form 90% of the body's cellular energy in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate)....

UK government uses deceptive language in new bill to legalize genetically engineered 'designer' babies

8/7/2014 - The British government has been accused of misleading its people in refusing to acknowledge that babies born through a new controversial in vitro fertilization (IVF) technique will actually be "genetically modified." Britain's The Telegraph newspaper reported that, in late July, the UK government...

Antioxidant MitoQ rejuvenates aging arteries

5/26/2014 - An antioxidant specifically engineered to seek out the mitochondria within cells may help reverse the aging of arteries, according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of Colorado-Boulder and published in The Journal of Physiology. The study was funded by a grant from the National...

Copper toxicity damages mitochondria of brain cells through oxidative, nitrosative stress

2/3/2014 - Scientists have linked copper to the development of numerous brain disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, prion conditions such as mad cow disease, and Wilson's disease. Although it remains unclear exactly what role copper plays in such brain damage, at least one study suggests that the mineral's...

Aluminum induces neurotoxicity by altering mitochondria of brain cells

1/30/2014 - Aluminum's role in causing neurotoxicity and contributing to a number of degenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease, has been widely discussed and is supported by a number of studies, though the exact mechanism remains inconclusive. Now, scientists have reached a better understanding of...

Astronaut research points to the anti-aging properties of magnesium

9/10/2013 - For decades, we have had empirical evidence of pathological conditions associated with accelerated aging: from vibroacoustic disorder in train engine drivers to 'burn-out syndrome' and radiation exposure in aviation pilots. Over the past 5 years, however, the space medicine community has elucidated...

Mitochondrial diseases on the rise - Are GMOs, Roundup to blame?

8/23/2013 - The United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (UMDF) estimates that every half hour, a child is born who will develop some type of mitochondrial disease by the time he or she reaches 10 years of age. And based on the symptom profiles typically associated with various mitochondrial diseases, as well as...

Alpha lipoic acid prevents mitochondrial aging and boosts energy levels

8/21/2011 - Mitochondria are the small powerhouse organelles that control the energy output for each of the trillions of cells that function synergistically within the human body. Every cell houses dozens to hundreds of mitochondria, depending on the particular function and energy requirement of the component organ....

Boost mitochondrial function naturally

4/8/2011 - Every cell within our body has unique organelles within it that play a vital role in the overall function and health of the cell. The mitochondria is a unique intracellular structure that produces 95% of the cellular energy and plays a critical role in protecting the cell from oxidative stress. Lifestyle...

Rejuvenate your energy levels with this powerful nutritional agent

2/7/2011 - Nearly 95% of the energy required to fuel our daily activities is provided by the tiny cellular powerhouse structures known as mitochondria. By the time we reach the age of 70, more than half of these critical energy-producing bodies have become damaged or are dysfunctional. Researchers now understand...

Revitalize cellular energy and slow aging with super nutrients PQQ and CoQ10

12/2/2010 - One of the hallmarks of aging is a rapid decline in cellular energy. Energy is produced by a complex of small powerhouses inside each cell known as mitochondria. Mitochondria are particularly vulnerable to the ravages of free radicals and oxidation from normal metabolic activity in our body, and they...

Acetyl L-Carnitine and Alpha-Lipoic Acid may be Fountain of Youth for the Brain

12/29/2008 - Throughout human history aging people have yearned for a magic elixir to help them turn back the clock and restore youth. It could be that this dream is about to come true. In a recent landmark study, old lab rats taking a mixture of acetyl L-carnitine and alpha-lipoic acid regained so much of their...
