We need to look at mitochondrial health. We know that the heart cells, and the cardiac cells have 50 mitochondria per cell, producing energy within those cells.
And we know that mitochondrial dysfunction is very much associated it with many different conditions, particularly brain and nervous system conditions like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, autism, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and migraine headaches. Still, also it’s associated with heart disease and cancer as well.
And so we really have to take care of the mitochondria. Significant factors that damage our mitochondria are a lousy diet, chronic stress, chronic infections, environmental toxins, poor sleep, and the aging process itself.
Because we’re under oxidative stress, we produce metabolic waste every time we produce energy in the cells, which will damage the mitochondria. And we need to be able to replace those mitochondria. And that’s a process called mitophagy where it’s basically this autophagy process but breaking down specifically the MIT.
