Supporting Mitochondria

According to a source with 40 year cancer experience; cancer can hit us only when our temperature falls to as low as 35C.  According to another source; cancer creeps or spreads at night, (during sleep). During sleep at night also the temperature falls to 35C or less especially for some one sick with cancer. That is way the cancer spreads at night. In other words, if the temperature of a cancer patent kept above 35c, metastasis may not occur.

No doubt in both cases, poor mitochondria may be the main reason. Mitochondria are the powerhouses of body cells, generating energy to fuel biochemical reactions of cells to keep the body warm as high as 37.5C. Once they become weak, they can not generate energy enough to keep the body warm enough above 35C. Therefore supporting mitochondria is essential in this case with minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. Good quality supplements of magnesium, manganese, iron , zinc, selenium, and vitamins/antioxidants, A, B1, B2, B3, B5, E, C, and especially a unique antioxidant ergothioneine.

Ergothionine is as strong as glutathione but provides more potency to mitochondria because it is the only antioxidant accumulates in the mitochondria and does not oxidise like glutathione. For daily ergothioneine dosage and further details, please see the details bellow at: Ergothioniene Quotes.

To be on the safe side, energy carrier NAD sources, tryptophan and aspartic amino acids, lipoic acid, Coq10, copper and the four mitochondrial enzyme complexes supplements may be used too.

Ergothioneine Quotes

Quote: “L-ergothioneine is one of the only antioxidants concentrated in mitochondria, suggesting a specific role in protecting mitochondrial components such as DNA from oxidative damage associated with mitochondrial generation of superoxide.  L-ergothioneine is as potent as glutathione (which does not accumulate in mitochondria)”.

Quote: “Ergothioneine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that acts as an antioxidant and has a unique role in the protection of mitochondria from oxidation.  It is only obtained from dietary sources with mushrooms being a top”.

Quote:”The Panel on Dietetic Products for the European Food Safety Authority found L-ergothioneine daily limits of 2.82 mg/kg of body weight for infants, 3.39 mg/kg for small children, and 1.31 mg/kg for adults, including pregnant and breastfeeding women, to be safe”..
