Improving Your Mitochondria Function to Reduce Cancer Risk


Master-Mitochondria-Reduce-Cancer-RisksMitochondria are often referred to as the powerhouse for their role in generating the energy supply for cells. They are also key organelles in supporting everyday metabolic processes.

The destruction or weakening of mitochondria can lead to severe health complications including multiple sclerosis, autism, bipolar disorder, chronic fatigue syndrome, type-2 diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

Many strategies can help improve the function of mitochondria and reduce your risk of developing cancer. These include exercise, intermittent fasting, and a ketogenic diet.

Supplementing the following nutrients has been shown to promote mitochondria function:

  • Acetyl-Carnitine
  • B Vitamins
  • Alpha-Lipoic Acid
  • Coenzyme Q10

Support healthy mitochondria function by making the choice every day to limit your exposure to environmental contaminants; exercise, and reduce oxidative stress in your body by eating a nutrient dense diet.

About LFCT

This is a blog about CHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit organisation that offers support and aid to Children with Cancer and their families. When a child is diagnosed with cancer it affects the whole family. One of the parents, usually the mother, must give up their job to care for the child and this creates financial problems for the family. In South Africa especially the majority of these families are not well-to-do; many of them are rural. A diagnosis of cancer can wipe out any family’s finances, let alone a poor family. The costs of special medications, special diets, hospital stays, transport to and from the hospital or clinic and accommodation and food costs for the mother who spends most of the time at her child’s bedside are astronomical. These are the people and problems that fall through the cracks, and these are the people that Little Fighters Cancer Trust has pledged to help in any way possible. LFCT takes a holistic approach to assisting the Children with Cancer and their Families, with the main aim to be the preservation of individual dignity and pride. Little Fighters Cancer Trust also focuses on promotion and advocacy of National Childhood Cancer Awareness in an effort to increase awareness of Early Warning Signs of Childhood Cancer. This would result in earlier diagnosis, giving the Child with Cancer more of a chance at Treatment and Survival. See "About" for more Background info
