14. Supporting the Mitochondria with NAD and Peptides w/ Dr. Amber Krogsrud

Supplementing naturally occurring peptides and nutrients helps support your body’s mitochondria. I’m joined by naturopathic doctor, Amber Krogsrud, to talk about how she uses peptides to improve both her and her patient’s overall health.

What You Need to Know About the Mitochondria

Dr. Amber joins me today to talk about peptides, but before we can talk about them, we need to go back to basics. First, we’re talking about mitochondria: what it is and what role it plays in our bodies.

She explains how we can support our mitochondria from a cellular level, by supplementing our diets, physical level with diet and exercise, and an external level with outside assistance. Amber shares some tips for how you can improve your diet for optimal health. She says that fasting, or intermittent fasting, is one of the most beneficial ways you can eat.

Amber uses a red light to improve her mitochondria function. The additional benefits of the red light she uses are hair growth and collagen repair.

The final bit of the mitochondria puzzle is the supplements you can take to support it. Amber loves NAD (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide), a coenzyme that your body naturally produces. She explains the different ways you can supplement NAD in your wellness routine.

How to Use Peptides to Support Your Health

Peptides are naturally occurring biological molecules that are found in all living organisms and have a key function in all biological activity. They’re chains of amino acids that form the basis of almost everything our body does, including producing collagen in the skin.

Amber explains the different types of peptides our bodies use to keep them running in good condition. Some peptides are more commonly found in animal products, so vegans and vegetarians may need to supplement these.

An interesting study about CoQ10, a peptide that helps your cells generate energy, found that women with breast cancer have lower levels of this peptide. Amber explains what these findings show and how these results have shown up in her own medical practice.

Overall, peptides are a fantastic addition to your health. They can promote weight loss, improve collagen production, and benefit your skin and hair health. As Amber says, there really is a peptide for everything!

The average person will want to use peptides to help encourage their body to produce more themselves. You can expect a monthly investment between $300-400, depending on the peptide combination you use.
