Increase Your Mitochondria, Your Body Will Thank You | The Acid Drop

As it turns out, mitochondria are essential for cellular function, and virtually every cell in the human body. We just learned about some exciting research whereby a dietary intervention can in fact dramatically increase the number of mitochondria in immune cells. That is certainly a plus. There’s some great information here.

  1. Paleo pathway. So if you stop being insulin resistant and keep diet without carbs salt isn't big problem for you. But high salt intake will make you hungry & thirsty. With low you don't need hydration getting it from fats & food(best animal)in diet. So you don't drink water with deuterium then which damages mitochondria.

  2. Thank you for your work on uric acid. In hopes that you will also study the effects of bovine growth hormones in our meat, and the who knows what they are injecting chickens and pigs with, but whatever it is, it's affecting our health in a very bad way. Almost as if they intended to wipe us out… 🙁

  3. What happens to the mitochondria if the person has a neutropenic fever due to chemotherapy? I had breast cancer and after my first dose of chemo, I got neutrpenic fever after my first dose of chemo. I was told that my neutrophils were 0.5 and normal was 13. I recovered, but I was wondering if that is why I had 'brain fog' afterwords the chemotherapy and radiation. That was 10 years ago. I am currently eating a low sodium and most of all, low sugar (carb) diet. I got off of sugar using monk fruit and now I am trying to eat less real fruit with the exception of a few, like kiwis. I am also taking vitamins such as MNM and trans reseratrol. I am noticing that my I have been retaining information better and memory has improved. Please tell me what you think about this.

  4. I read your book, "Drop Acid," and I'm skeptical of subclinical hyperuricemia in the absence of excessive carbohydrates. Are you sure the "independent" risk factors of UA are really independent at the subclinical level? I suspect there are cofactors that are not accounted for, as carnivores would all be suffering the consequences, and there have been plenty over the ages. I think fructose (or excessive other carbohydrates), for example—even in high fiber foods—is a likely cofactor, for sodium too. I'm sensing a potential plant-based bias and/or dependence on low-quality epidemiological studies. 

    PS: My suspicion is that people who strictly control carbohydrates may not need to worry about subclinical hyperuricemia, and that in that context, sodium is also not an issue. I can't prove it, but I'd like you to tell me if you know why that's wrong—because we're both after the truth.

  5. I disagree with this sodium and mithocondria thing as I dont see it empirically be correct. First low sodium is a marker of cancer before it happends, if so you can claim that most of those are diabetics and have to high sugar in the blood meaning that Na+ drops. BUT the problem with attacking sodium is that one does not look of other things as how fast the kidneys can excrete what they dont need, if you drink. Its a gram in a minute. Sodium is very important as copper , manganance and Ca Mg K to have the mithokondrie to function. So low sodium may increase those ( if that is what they say with more DNA mithocondrial in the white blood cell,, is that a cause or correlation proof?) as those who exists may dont work as they should. Anyhow as 20-30 gram intaker of salt a day and totaly riped from fat, I can ensure you that salt is not the problem. If you cant excrete it, its a problem. A salt giving you potasium is good. Next thing is the other thing they have in the salt ,,, and that is a Fe(CN)x complex fucking up the kidneys.. that is not a problem they say,,, I say it probably is. The fructose is a problem if your liver is full… with your bodyfat down 10 % and all minerals vitamins in place and a day with more sugar, no problemo.

  6. I don't understand why our ancestors's bodies would've perceived the intake of fructose as a sign food was scarce and mitochondria should down regulate to save energy. Wouldn't it be the opposite?

  7. Maybe there's another explanation! Less fructose means a lower energy in the circulating nutrients and thus a compensation to get the work done with lower energy nutrition is a greater number of mitochondria.

  8. Sodium reduces production of ATP (interferes with the work of the mitochondria) for 3 hours (it takes the body 3 hours to get rid of excess sodium). So if you eat every 3 hours you are basically toast.
