Improving Mitochondrial Function to Increase Energy

Posted on

In order for cells to have enough energy to function properly, their power stations (mitochondria) must function properly. Dysfunctional mitochondria are associated with decreased energy and increased oxidative stress and inflammation that have been linked with many chronic diseases. Pinnaclife® EnergyBoost with Olivamine® includes various beneficial ingredients that can counteract oxidative stress and reduce inflammation associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. In many studies modeling various diseases, the potent olive polyphenols hydroxytyrosol and oleuropein have been shown to prevent or decrease mitochondrial dysfunction and promote proper mitochondrial functioning including mitochondrial biogenesis. In fact, the results from different studies suggest that decreasing mitochondrial...

Energy, Exercise, and Mitochondria

Posted on

Did you know that the more you exercise, the more mitochondria your cells produce that make energy? In fact, doing more exercise for mitochondria is a great idea. Mitochondria are critical organelles found inside cells that are known as the cell’s powerhouses because they produce energy in the form of ATP. In fact, skeletal muscle mitochondria typically form large networks that allow rapid interconnections and changes in response to cellular energetic needs. Some of these changes include mitochondrial fusion and mitochondrial biogenesis (newly formed organelles)1. Unfortunately, many older adults have decreased mitochondrial and muscle function. In fact, aging is associated...

Vitamin D Deficiency: Are You "Paying" Enough to get out of Vitamin D Debt?

Posted on

Daily recommended intake of Vitamin D is based on miscalculations in the original research, contributing to an increase in deficiency and related health issues. Corrections to the calculations indicate the RDA of Vitamin D should be increased to avoid health consequences of inadequate daily intake and deficiency. Vitamin D deficiency is increasingly common New Vitamin D research shows that the recommended daily value was miscalculated Corrected calculations suggest 100% daily value for Vitamin D should be 10x higher Vitamin D blood levels above 30 ng/mL are sufficient for osteoporosis but other benefits for immune health, cancer, heart disease and more...
