Your body is dependent on every cell functioning optimally. Seek a good health practitioner to amp up your nutritional intake to keep the cells healthy.
Your body is very dependent on every cell functioning optimally. Each cell has a number of “organelles” that need to function effectively for the cell to function.
Factors That Influence Optimal Functioning Of Cells In Our Body
Mitochondria – Powerhouses Of The Cell
Many are familiar with the mitochondria that in addition to a variety of other functions, provides the fuel for each cell.
Thankfully, you do not need to understand the complexity of all the other “organelles” and functions that are required in every cell in order for each cell to be effective.
The methylation cycle that includes the methionine cycle, the folate cycle, the biopterin cycle, and the urea cycle also need to be working effectively in order for each cell to produce glutathione effectively, never mind umpteen other compounds.
Adequate Nutrition – And This Is Where You Need To Seek A Good Health Practitioner!!
What you do need is a good health practitioner that does understand what these different organelles and functions require in terms of nutrients (found in herbs, spice and foods).
Let us take for instance, my favorite compound, glutathione. There are umpteen products that claim that they can increase your glutathione levels.
Some work on the DNA that produce both mRNA and tRNA – the tools that make the glutathione. There are some foods and products that help the mitochondria function and produce the fuel that allows the tools to function, like CoQ10 and iron.
Then there are foods and supplements that support all four components of the methionine cycles that regulate and synthesize glutathione, like B Vitamins and amino acids.
Glutathione Levels In Your Body
Now you also have to take into consideration that there are 8 different glutathione compounds in the body. oh dear! In addition, what is really fascinating are all the different roles glutathione has in the body.
Most people who even know about glutathione think of it only as the “Master Anti-oxidant”, but it also functions as the Master Chelator, detox compound, immune regulating/protecting compound, and a huge number of other functions as well.
In fact, some scientists claim that there is not a disorder, dysfunction, disease that is not correlated with low glutathione. From depression, to cardio, to immune issues, to gut issues, to diabetes, to arthritis, etc.
So you really want to make sure that it is up and healthy in each cell, organ, tissue, and system of the body.
Aren’t you glad you do not need to know all this stuff? But you want to make sure you have a health care practitioner that does.
One that knows how to make sure all these functions are happening in every cell of your body. Or what nutrients you need in order to make it all happen. Make sure you do!
