Mitochondria: toxins, genes, herbs, and nutrition (2021)

Everyone knows that the mitochondria are the ‘powerhouse of the cell’ from high school biology textbooks, but what does that even really mean?

Mitochondria are tiny bacteria-like organelles that allow your cells to convert the calories that you eat—whether from fat, protein, or carbohydrate—into energy your cells can use (ATP).

Increasingly, scientists are finding that mitochondrial function is linked to nearly every aspect of health, including cardiovascular, brain, muscle, liver, and even blood sugar health.

Many pervasive environmental toxins can negatively affect mitochondrial energy production by causing mitochondrial DNA mutation and decreasing the efficiency with which your cells can produce energy. Toxins like heavy metals, pesticides, and plastics like BPA are all known culprits.

Supporting detoxification is essential in order to preserve your mitochondrial health, but there are many herbs and nutrients that also support the health of these energy producing machines, like Rhodiola, Shilajit, Methyl Folate, Vitamin B12, and Quercetin, which are found in CHOQ Products like CHOQ Action 2.0, Armor, Daily, and Shilajit.
