Taking Care of Your Body’s Energy Source

By Dr. Michael Ruscio

Mitochondria are organelles, or “small bodies”, within your cells responsible for producing adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy currency of the body. If mitochondria aren’t functioning properly, your cells aren’t fed. Some contributors to mitochondrial damage include environmental toxins like Roundup in food, poor diet that includes refined carbohydrates and added sugars, and even too many nutrients overall. The result could be inflammation, and other conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, infertility, or neural degeneration.

As well, incorporate light exercise and proper breathing. My book Healthy Gut, Healthy You is available at Looking for more? Check out
