It May be Possible to Monitor Alzheimer’s Progression by Measuring Glutathione with MRI

In a human study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, antioxidant, glutathione (GSH), which protects the brain from stress, has been found to be significantly depleted in Alzheimer’s patients compared to normal subjects. As GSH is a very important antioxidant that protects the brain from free radicals, the findingsRead …

Mitochondrial Dysfunction and Chronic Disease: Treatment With Natural Supplements

Mitochondrial Dysfunction and Chronic Disease

It is well known among researchers that mitochondrial genetic or primary mitochondrial disorders contribute to mitochondrial dysfunction as well as secondary or acquired degenerative disorders. This review will concentrate on nongenetic or acquired mechanisms that could explain mitochondrial dysfunction and their replacement treatment with natural supplements and combinations of natural supplements, including vitamins, minerals, enzyme cofactors, antioxidants, metabolites, transporters, membrane-type phospholipids, and other natural supplements. Combinations of supplements can reduce significantly the fatigue and other symptoms associated with chronic disease and can naturally restore mitochondrial function, even in long-term patients with intractable fatigue.
