We live in a toxic external environment. We breathe, eat and drink toxins that must be cleared from the internal environments of our body’s cells.
Inside every cell, mitochondria exist to power detoxification. By neutralizing toxins, cells maintain their healthy internal environments. The healthier your cells, the better you feel, the more beautifully you age, and the less likely you are to suffer from low energy or conditions that allow cancer, heart disease or diabetes to take hold.
It’s in our best interest if detoxification happens all the time in our bodies. Sometimes, though, mitochondria become bogged down with ineffectual free radicals. And, the elegant mitochondrial conveyor belt of energy can become “jammed” by toxins and bacteria. When these things occur, detoxification slows to a crawl, and toxic overload can result.
Toxic overload can be detected by someone experiencing it. A loss of energy, lowered immune function, and impaired resilience occur in toxic overload. This weakens one’s ability to recover from illnesses… or even from normal activities such as fitness workouts. When toxic overload dominates the picture, we know that mitochondria need a boost.
Boost Your Mitochondria
Delta’s E2 energy catalyst dramatically frees the mitochondria from toxic overload, allowing them to power optimal function and to facilitate further detoxification. To support the transformation of overloaded mitochondria to mighty energy producers, we also wisely focus on additional energy catalysts, namely, enzymes!
Food enzymes occur naturally in raw food and are preserved if foods are not manufactured, processed or packaged. Metabolic enzymes are produced by the body and are catalysts for every function in the body. They help facilitate detoxification and energy production in every single cell of the body.
Supportive mitochondrial nutrition captures the catalytic power of food enzymes while nourishing the body’s metabolic enzymes. In turn, supportive mitochondrial nutrition leads to increases in energy, while supporting health restoration and optimal detoxification.
Evidence is accumulating that poor nutrition and mitochondrial dysfunction can lead to many chronic conditions, from persistent fatigue to grave illnesses like Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and nutrigenomic diseases of rapid aging.
5 Powerful Ways to Nourishing Mitochondria
- Include between 5-15 raw fruits and vegetables every day in the diet.
- Decrease processed foods eaten throughout the week. Eating wholesome, organic and nonGMO, fresh or home-prepared foods is helpful for mitochondrial energy improvement.
- Select low glycemic foods, meaning foods that stabilize blood sugar levels. Choosing foods with higher fiber content and greater nutrient density protects the body’s energy stores and prevents the need to manage toxic and stressful blood sugar changes.
- Eat 6-12 ounces of grass-fed meat or wild-caught salmon. These choices provide amino acids and essential fats that rebuild worn mitochondrial membranes, and improve mitochondrial performance.
- Include a variety of naturally occurring fats like olive oil, coconut oil, and butter. Avoid consuming laboratory produced or hydrogenated fats such as processed margarines. Naturally occurring fats contain specific vitamins and vitamin-like compounds that nourish mitochondrial longevity.
Combining the powerful effects of the E2 catalyst with optimal mitochondrial nutrition are the most important, basic tools to start building increased energy and improved mitochondrial health, and to overcome toxic overload.
