Are you struggling with Fatigue even after a Good Night’s Rest?
Have you considered the Health of Your Mitochondria? What are mitochondria? Mitochondria are the power factories inside of each of our cells, responsible for converting food and oxygen into energy. Each cell in our body contains hundreds or even thousands of these energy producers with over 100,000 trillion mitochondria located throughout our body. Mitochondria is the place where metabolism happens, so mitochondrial health is essential to having good energy levels.
What can compromise the health of our mitochondria? Hormonal imbalances, chronic inflammation, an unhealthy diet filled with processed foods and sugar, and excessive toxins within the body are some of the more common culprits of lost mitochondrial health.
How can we boost the health of our mitochondria? Begin with regular exercise. Strength training will increase your muscle mass and the number of mitochondria within your body. Interval training will increase the efficiency of your mitochondria. Increasing the number of foods in your diet that are rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients, especially colorful fruits and vegetables. You can help build your mitochondrial membranes through adding Omega-3s to your diet and partnering with one of our clinicians to incorporate nutritional supplements with ingredients that support mitochondrial health and healing, such as resveratrol, acetyl-L-carnitine, alpha-lipoic acid and more.
If you’re struggling with fatigue and loss of energy, partner with our clinicians to determine the cause, including laboratory assessments of mitochondrial health. Make an appointment by calling our office at 214-972-0302 today!
