“All that surrounds us is the foundation of life, the birthplace of what your science calls midi-chlorians, the foundation of what connects the Living Force and the Cosmic Force.”― Grandmaster Yoda, Star Wars

What are these midi-chlorians? Well, they’re your good-ol’ mitochondria the powerhouse of the cells that you learned about in biology class.

That’s the topic of today’s Body Mind Empowerment Podcast. I’m your host Siim Land and our guest is Dr. Lee Know from Canada. His latest book Mitochondria and the Future of Medicine looks at the theory of aging and disease from a revolutionary perspective.

Topics discussed:
What are the Mitochondria – 02:50
How do the Mitochondria produce Energy – 07:25
What fuel do the mitochondria prefer – 12:00
The Mitochondrial Theory of Aging – 18:05
Can the Mitochondria repair themselves – 28:40
What nutrients benefit the mitochondria – 31:20
Exercise and Mitochondria – 42:00
How Lee keeps his mitochondria fit – 52:00

And Much More…

  2. Is it just Glucose, Glycogen & Lactic Acid that our cells turn into Pyruvate to feed our Mitochondrias? And can all our cells use Ketones as well as Fat for fuel? Because I thought Liver cells & some parts of the Brain can't?

  3. I know I keep bringing this up Siim but I am curious about what you say about water intake. If I only drink when I am thirsty I think I will only have 1-2 bottles of water a day. Also, what would dictate “thirst”? Would it be the obvious sensation or would it be a dry mouth because being on keto I seem to have a dry mouth a lot.

  4. I get that (erythrocyte) red blood cells don't have mitochondria, and therefore they can't use/breakdown ketones for energy and must rely exclusively on glucose.. but in general If 90+% of a non-red-blood cell's energy comes from mitochondria/atp, where does the balance come from?

    Regarding how breathing oxygen often causes a premature reaction (in complex 1) that leads to free super oxide radicals, which can damage any one of the nearby (10) copies of mitochondrial dna.. I assume this type of damage can't be mitigated by caloric-restriction, correct? CR may help in a different way, by limiting the amount of incoming electrons?

    Regarding how more antioxidants isn't always good since it also reduces the healthy beneficial stress / hormesis, any idea how some antioxidants are thought to be tissue specific? for example, how does supplementing with Lutein & Zeaxanthin make it to they eyes?

    In general, is there any concern that supplementing to help mitochondria function, will cause the body to compensate by producing less? Ex. d-ribose (body makes it very slowly), creatine, coq10, l-carnitine (amino acid used for long-chain fatty acid metabolism, not protein building), Magnesium, PQQ (dark chocolate), niacin (vitamin-b3), vitamin b12 (for myelin health), etc.

    BTW, any recommended brands of supplements? Doctor's Best Ubiquinol with Kaneka? Or blood levels of these nutrients to shoot for? CoQ10 3ug/ml?

    Regarding how intense exercise creates more mitochondria and therefore reduces it's overall load when you're at rest.. isn't cold stress and endurance exercise thought to activate PGC-1A and increase mitochondria in fat (turning it brown)?

    Regarding how ketones are a cleaner fuel source that results in less byproducts, compared to glucose, fats, and lactic-acid, it's interesting how in cancer, the mitochondria is thought to rely exclusive on glucose.. but for Alzheimer's treatment, it can only use ketones?!

  5. Thanks for this great talk. Can PQQ supplements (20mg) be taken long term in addition to Ubiquinol 300mg or is it possible to overdose / have too many mitochondria?

  6. Summarising from the book (page 151) regarding energy pools.
    Those in their 40s rely on glycolysis for energy. Therefore without glucose D-rebose is essential.
    Can you elaborate?

  7. A lot of intelligent followers with great questions! I finally got to this interview which I was really looking forward to and wasn’t disappointed! PQQ, always learning something new with Siim! Thanks ❤️

  8. Siim, I am VERY interested in the beneficial aspects of oxidative stress.

    So, in terms of a lifestyle of intermittent fasting paired with a Ketogenic diet and targeted HIIT/resistance training, when would be the best time to introduce some strategic oxidative stress in order to achieve the maximum benefits?

    So we need to find out what kind of oxidative stress and at what times would provide that sweet spot of hormetic stimulus.

    Any ideas or videos on that?

    Thank you, sir!

  9. Great information showing that ALL diets need supplementation for adequate nutrition. If our knowledge of fire helped use obtain more nutrients, why would we stop our processing of foods at fire when we are so much more capable of acquiring, processing, and concentrating nutrients. Why would we not use our knowledge to increase nutrient density in our diet overall? Also, by definition, it is natural because man is a part of nature. Strange how people consider all other beings manipulation of material "natural", but become lost on the fact that man is of the same nature, therefore making what we do a part of nature. All we are doing on the macro level is the same thing all the bacteria and mitochondria are doing on a micro level, manipulating mater.

  10. tldr:

    I looked up foods with CoQ10:

    Organ meats: Heart, liver and kidney.
    Some muscle meats: Pork, beef and chicken.
    Fatty fish: Trout, herring, mackerel and sardine.
    Vegetables: Spinach, cauliflower and broccoli.
    Fruit: Oranges and strawberries.
    Legumes: Soybeans, lentils and peanuts.
    So, the first four are typical components of a ketogenic diet that we've already discussed.

  11. I am a Palestinian residing in Egypt..I would like to take your permission in translating your book {Mitochondria and the future of medicine} to Arabic language

  12. Brilliant info and graphics to explain the chemistry process inside the mitochondria. Completely convicted about the importance of movement and exercise now. With ME/CFS this is tricky terrain. Exercise can exacerbate fatigue. Finding the optimal amount for my current energy level is my next challenge. Thanks for the inspiration!!
