The Results are in, your health success formula is…

Are you ready for a new way of thinking about health? The body is an ecosystem. Every cell has its own unique function and purpose. When one part of this system breaks down, it can affect every other part of the system. The key to optimal health is balance and harmony between all parts of your body’s ecosystem – from your gut to your immune system, from your brain to your heart.

Being able to extricate energy from the foods eaten is a vital physiological process. Without it, the capacity to do anything, from breathing to moving would be impossible.

Energy is required at the molecular level all the way up to humans and beyond. To do this the bioenergetic core process utilises cellular organelles called mitochondria. It is within these ancient structures that food molecules derived from the assimilation core process mix with oxygen and is broken down into energy and the waste products of urea, water and carbon dioxide.

Many chronic conditions associated with fatigue and pain have their roots in functional changes in the body’s mitochondria.

What it means

The primary area of focus for the biological process of bioenergetics are the cellular organelles, mitochondria.

Why it’s important

The bioenergetics core process is key to our survival as humans. Accelerated or premature biological ageing and chronic disease can occur as a result of changes in mitochondrial function. The bioenergetic process is reliant upon the proper intake of key nutrients.

Powerful Insight

Chronic fatigue syndrome is associated with poor mitochondrial function. Mitochondrial function can also be negatively affected by type 2 diabetes which can affect the brain and contribute to dementia.
