Product Description

One of the most overlooked factors in chronic health condition is dysfunction of cellular mitochondria. Also as people age, mitochondrial function declines.  Inside every cell are mitochondria, the power plants that produce most of the cell's energy.  For cells to function properly their mitochondria must function properly:

The means by which mitochondria produce energy is called the Kreb's or Citric Acid Cycle:

The ability of mitochondria to sustain the high energy demands of the brain, liver, heart, muscles, endocrine glands, and other tissues can be compromised by many factors, including exposure to toxins, inadequate antioxidant intake, illness, genetic factors, and a decline in cellular function with increasing age.

The accumulated effects of oxidative damage can disrupt mitochondrial membranes and damage lipids, DNA, and proteins, resulting in suboptimal functioning of affected organ systems.

Mitochondrial Support supplies key nutrients and energy substrates to protect against free radicals and assist mitochondria in performing their critical functions most efficiently.*

Mitochondrial Support contains main of the nutrients required by the mitochondria in cells to produce energy through the Kreb's Cycle, including:  succinate, malic acid, alpha-ketoglutarate, Co-Q10.  Here is a diagram of nutrients used during the Kreb's cycle:

I loved this infographic on the Krebs cycle.  This article focuses on CFS & ME, put the same points apply to any chronic illness.  The Krebs cycle is the cycle your cells perform to make energy.  Your cells need glutathione, lipoic acid, selenium, B Vitamins, etc. in order to perform their work.  I am working on healing on a cellular level.

Mitochondrial Support is one of the few supplements to include succinic acid, a critical part of the Kreb's energy production cycle in the mitochondria of every cell. Succinic acid is a critical part of the Kreb's cycle.  The natural insecticide found in Bacillus Thuringiensis (Bt) which is widely used on organic crops and also genetically engineered into Bt corn and potatoes, reduces the availability of succinic acid for Kreb's cycle energy production. 

Bt kills insects when the insect consumes a plant that contains the Bt protein. The protein binds to and ruptures the gut wall, causing leaky gut. Within hours, the gut wall breaks down and normal gut bacteria invade the body cavity. The insect dies of blood poisoning as bacteria multiply in the blood.

Bt’s aggressive mechanism harms the digestive system by effectively attacking normal gut cells thereby burning holes in the intestines. This can contribute to problems such as leaky gut. Even worse, Bt doesn’t exit your body with the unused remnants of the food it entered with.  Bt corn is also used in the manufacture of ethanol gasoline which means we are inhaling it.  (Research indicates ethanol is considerably more toxic to inhale than unleaded gasoline.) 

Bt is in the same family of bacteria as B. anthracis, which causes anthrax, and B. cereus, which causes food poisoning.  Research has shown that the Bt toxin persists in the gastrointestinal tract of human-flora-associated rats weeks after exposure. [1] Research has shown that Bt has a toxic effect on the lungs and other organs. [2] In rare cases, Bt can even wreak havoc on the eyes, causing severe irritation and even blindness. [3]
