Dr. Felice Gersh discusses the role metabolism plays in maintaining optimal mitochondrial function in our latest podcast with our ambassador, Emma Sutherland.
As an experienced Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, Felice illustrates the connection between metabolic health and reproductive health outcomes and the impact metabolic dysfunction can have on hormonal regulation.
We hear about changes to metabolic function across the lifespan and about metabolic ‘inflexibility’, the connection between blood glucose regulation and hormone control and the circadian rhythm.
