Study Title:

Mitochondria-Fundamental to Life and Health.

Study Abstract

In the past few years, I have become progressively more aware of the foundational importance of optimal mitochondrial function for health and the growing body of research showing that dysfunction is surprisingly common and associated with most chronic disease. In my IMCJ 12.5 editorial, Lara and I presented helpful clinical pearls on mitochondrial health from the Institute of Functional Medicine conference in Dallas last spring. In my IMCJ 13.1 editorial, I stated that glutathione is “… vital to mitochondrial function and maintenance of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA).” I have found the mitochondrial connection to health so interesting and important that I have now developed a 90-minute lecture on the topic and think the time has come for an editorial.
