    Anyone here pretty knowledgeable on mitochondria? I cant figure out why but whenever I take ubiquinol or NAC or another mitochondria antioxidant I get a horrible reaction. Just throwing it out there in case anyone knows.

    NAC is a precursor to glutathione which is a powerful detoxifier. I can only take 100 mg ubiquinol a day or I get pretty bad reaction also. I believe that a toxic overload is a big part of cfs/fm causing many symptoms, including mitochondrial dysfunction. I also think the gut (dysbiosis and leaky gut) are a major source of toxins.

    I can't tolerate ubiquinol but I'm ok with NAC.

    @PointsNorth, is the Wahl's thing paleo-based? If so, how low carb is it?

    @whodathunkit, do you know if this smaller book includes the information on mitochoncria or is it just about MS?

    Right now the used hardbacks are more expensive ($16.38) than the new ($15.27). :confused:

    @Little Bluestem: I got the new book via Kindle. I'm not very far into it but I'll let you know. It seems to have info on the mitochondria but probably not nearly as in-depth as the textbook.
