Adrenal, Gut and Immune Health all starts in one place

The mitochondria in all our cells are the energy power plants of our cells, this is where ATP is made!  When your mitochondria are taxed you’ll notice toxins building up more than usual or that you have a harder time at eliminating them, basically a sluggish liver. Here are a few other symptoms you may experience with mitochondrial stress:

  • Low energy state and fatigue
  • Low endurance
  • Gastrointestinal disorders, such as leaky gut, irritable bowel, and constipation
  • Muscle soreness, pain, and cramps
  • Brain fog
  • Inability to tolerate medications or supplements
  • Neurological problems
  • Seizures
  • Susceptibility to infections or chronic illness
  • Swallowing difficulties
  • Poor thyroid function

The good news is that oral phosphatidylcholine can be used to help modify mitochondrial signals and promote healthy inner mitochondrial membrane potential. This means it improves your ATP synthesis (including perceived energy, mood, and cognition) and overall immune-health balance.

In addition to cellular energy production, the mitochondria perform several critical functions in the cell including the modulation of calcium signaling, regulation of cell death, maintenance of cellular redox balance, and innate immune signaling, making phospholipid movement to and from the mitochondrion essential for cellular integrity.

When various cellular stressors including reactive oxygen species (ROS) and danger signals are released in the presence of cellular or mitochondrial damage, the formation of inflammasomes are induced, which triggers innate immune defenses (think autoimmunity),  suggesting that healthy mitochondria are essential for a balanced immune response.

In a healthy gastrointestinal tract, the presence of PC (phosphatidylcholine) in the mucosal secretion mucus creates a hydrophobic surface layer that safeguards the intestinal tissues and modulates mucosal signaling. PC represents more than 90% (that’s huge) of the phospholipids comprising intestinal mucus. This mucosal barrier serves as a primary component of the gut creating a protective shield against GI-related immune challenges by binding foreign matter.

Oral PC supplementation replenishes the phosphatide content of intestinal mucus, reinforcing the body’s first, and perhaps most important, immune defense mechanism. Outside of gut and immune issues, supporting the phospholipid membrane of our cells is incredibly helpful when we’re experiencing any type of chronic fatigue. Whether this fatigue was due to a stressful event in your life, a recent viral attack on your immune system, or not sleeping well.

Phospholipids make up the major structural lipids in cellular membranes, which acts as an important energy storage reservoir, and they are also bioactive molecules in signal transduction and molecular recognition. As we age and go through sickness or disease, our phospholipids are replaced with saturated fatty acids, making our once fluid membranes now rigid. This process stunts mitochondrial cell and membrane shape, repair, and growth.

Supplementing with high-dose phospholipids, specifically, Bio PC Pro, can provide excellent support for chronic fatigue, improved mitochondrial function, and also reduce chronic inflammation.

But we mustn’t forget about our mighty adrenals. They do so much for us, but they often go unrecognized. Our adrenals are responsible for getting us up in the mornings, keeping us going throughout the day, and regulating our thyroid as well as our sex hormones. But when our adrenals are burnt out, they have reduced formation of ATP from the mitochondria to do what they do best, and that’s to give you energy!

While going to the root of the cause of your symptoms is the very first thing we need to address, the two supplements that get us to where we need to head are Bio PC Pro and TruAdapt Plus. And the icing on the cake would be to receive a Mega IV. The nutrients in the IV include B-vitamins that are important for metabolic pathways in mitochondrial respiration and energy production. The vitamin C in the Mega IV is an excellent scavenger of free radicals which helps prevent mitochondrial oxidative damage and mitochondrial aging as well!
