Mitochondria reactions


Senior Member
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.

@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:
