Over recent years, evidence suggests there is a subset of ASD individuals with concomitant mitochondrial dysfunction, which may contribute to ASD onset, progression or severity.
GIT microbiota and mitochondrial crosstalk appears to occur primarily via complex endocrine, humoural and immune pathway signalling.
What is ubiquinol? How do we make it? What are the food sources and how does it work in the body?
In Australia, coenzyme Q10 is now available in some differing forms. In this podcast, Dr Ross Walker discusses the ways he differentiates the usages for the various forms clinically.
Recent experimental research shows alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) may have new protein targets within the mitochondria that are crucial for energy supply.
CoQ10 is a well-known antioxidant, active in every cell of the body. It has a strong link with cellular mitochondria and may also have a crucial role in mitochondrial homeostasis and therefore down-regulation of inflammasomes.
The relationship between the gut and the immune system is one of the most exciting and clinically relevant areas of research in molecular medicine. We have learnt that disturbances in gut homeostasis and microbial balance can activate the innate immune system in several ways causing wide and systemic dysfunction.
