Day 8: Metabolism and Mitochondria


What if I told you there was a reason you feel tired, achy, and foggy all the time? And what if I told you the solution was healing your body on the cellular level?

Mitochondria are involved in every facet and system of your biology. They are the cellular engine that drive the body machine. Sadly, conventional medicine rarely pays attention to them, leaving many of our illnesses, aches, and symptoms unaddressed.

Through addressing the needs of our mitochondria we can achieve a heightened and renewed baseline for what’s “normal” and greater overall health for many years to come.

Optimal Ranges & Key Tests

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10): This is an essential nutrient for your mitochondria (energy producing centers of your cells) to make energy. CoQ10 is formed from cholesterol so people taking statins are likely deficient in this nutrient. It’s essential for heart health because our hearts contain some of the highest levels of mitochondria. But the serum CoQ10 test is definitely not the most comprehensive one to get for mitochondrial function. There is another test that includes CoQ10 levels and so much more. So if your doctor will order this test for you then there is no need to do a seperate CoQ10 measurement. The most important test for mitochondrial health is the organic acids test (OAT).

  • Normal: 0.37−2.20 μg/mL

Organic Acid test (Organix) by Genova Diagnostics
The organic acids test not only looks at mitochondrial function though it also examines how well our bodies are able to detoxify, your B vitamin status as well as whether you may have dysbiosis. Dysbiosis is a term that we will talk about in the gut testing section, it is when the bacteria in your gut are not in balance.
