Damage to mitochondria, cells’ main energy generators, is caused by free radials and lipid peroxidation products.
When cell energy is low, you fatigue easily. It also greatly magnifies excitotoxicity.
Here are some things you can take to fight damage to mitochondria and increase your energy production.
• Curcumin. This substance increases mitochondrial function and protects mitochondria from damage.
• Methylcobalamin, folate, and niacinamide. All of these can boost energy production
• Riboflavin-5-phosphate. This is the functional form of vitamin B2and supplies the most energy. Take 50 mg twice a day.
• Pyridoxal-5-phosphate. This is the metabolic form of vitamin B6. The dose is 50 mg every other day.
Other things that increase mitochondrial energy production include R-lipoic acid, acetyl L-carnitine, and vitamin K.
