As the body's energy suppliers, the mitochondria have a serious impact on our health. This practical, evidence-based guide shows how to monitor mitochondrial function, and use personalized nutrition to optimise mitochondrial health. Included is a plethora of practical tools for facilitating diagnoses and treatments.

What are the functions of mitochondria in the human body? Why might they stop working properly and what can happen as a result? How can personalized nutrition help to optimize mitochondrial function and prevent or address chronic conditions?This innovative book explores the incredibly complex biochemical roles of mitochondria in health and disease. When healthy, mitochondria provide us with 90% of our body's energy. When unhealthy, this can lead to many chronic and degenerative conditions including cancer and Alzheimer's Disease. This guide helps practitioners identify the mitochondrial dysfunction underlying wide range of health complaints and provide inspiration on which mitochondria-supportive dietary regimes and nutrients to explore further within the model of personalized nutrition.

As the body's energy suppliers, the mitochondria have a serious impact on our health. This practical, evidence-based guide explains the potential consequences mitochondrial dysfunction, and how personalized nutrition can optimise mitochondrial health and help prevent or address chronic disease.
