MitoQ®: A Highly Bioavailable, Mitochondria-Targeted Form of Coenzyme Q10

by Chris D. Meletis, ND, Susanne Bennett, DC, and Kimberly Wilkes Tiny organelles known as mito­chondria are the body’s equivalent of the batteries that power electrical devices. In other words, they are responsible for charging cells through the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy molecule produced via the mitochondria’s electron transport chain. Any factor…

Mitochondria: Overlooking These Small Organelles Can Have Huge Clinical Consequences in Treating Virtually Every Disease

by Chris D. Meletis, ND, and Kimberly Wilkes The mitochondria are tiny organelles that are often overlooked in the treatment of disease. Yet, mitochondrial dysfunction drives the development of – or worsens the symptoms of – some of the most devastating diseases of modern times, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, autism, and diabetes, as…

New mechanism detected in Alzheimer's disease

New mechanism detected in Alzheimer’s disease Researchers have discovered a cellular mechanism that may contribute to the breakdown of communication between neurons in Alzheimer’s disease. In the brain tissue of Alzheimer’s patients, the RNAs that encode synaptic proteins are degraded more rapidly than in healthy brain cells, the researchers found. Their findings indicate that inadequate…
