Dr. Berg talks about how to boost your energy on the ketogenic diet. The mitochondria generate energy in your body. Many illness including cancer start with a breakdown of the mitochondria. Fixing the mitochondria will then fix your energy so you’re not fatigued or tired. When you go through keto fatigue, you may need to take various B vitamins (B5) and potassium but you could also be tired because your mitochondria need support. Antioxidants can protect the oxidation from free radicals from radiation, chemicals, etc. Cruciferous vegetables, omega 3 fatty acids and certain trace minerals all aid in the repair process and are called antioxidants. It could be CoEnzyme Q10, vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium magnesium, etc. are examples.
The main point is to get you to start increasing your quality of food, especially vegetables which includes these antioxidants from the phytonutrients to improve things. I recommend combining kale, parsley, and beet tops in a shake to increase the health of your mitochondria. Intermittent fasting and keto together can also help boost your mitochondria. Mitophagy is autophagy towards mitochondria, cleaning up the damages ones and causing a recycling effect.
Mitochondria – produces the energy in the body. These are little energy factories or the powerhouses of the cells. They take the food that we eat and converts into ATP (or the energy currency of the body).
Many illnesses including cancer, diabetes, autoimmune diseases all start with the breakdown of mitochondria. These mitochondria runs on certain vitamins and minerals.
Oxidative Stress: (The mitochondria is in constant assault from)
• metals (iron and copper)
• Lots of exercise (creates free radicals that will damage. Free Radicals are things that makes the cell membrane unstable)
• GMO foods
• viruses and other microbes
• high levels of sugar
• high levels of insulin
Anti-oxidants – It neutralizes the oxidation. The body makes anti-oxidants and it can also be get from the foods or food concentrates.
• Phytonutrients – “Phyto” meaning plants, chemicals. That are present in vegetables and a lot other foods that are considered superfoods.
• Omega 3
• Trace Minerals – Selenium, Zinc, Manganese
• B Vitamins
It is very important to put some attention and focus on repairing mitochondria and enhancing the phytonutrients if you want to start building up your energy and you will prevent a lot of illnesses involved in the dysfunction of mitochondria.
Healthy Ketogenic diet and Intermittent Fasting in general enhances mitochondria function. Mitophagy is basically the autophagy cleaning up the dysfunctional mitochondria. It is the body recycling the damaged cells and damage mitochondria. Intermittent Fasting triggers mitophagy by working up to 18 hours of fasting minimally.
