Oxaloacetate and Excitotoxicity

Image by Comfreak from Pixabay  The body produces energy from food and oxygen, in simplest terms. “Energy,” in this case, is ATP, or adenosine triphosphate.

Potential Molybdenum Side Effects

The Benefits of Fulvic Acid

Fulvic acid might seem new to the nutritional world, but in reality, it’s very, very old—in fact, it’s as old as plants and soil. When soil-based microbes break down decaying organic matter, they produce fulvic acid, which is the reason why compost is such a great fertilizer. Think of fulvic [...]

PQQ and the Mitochondria

I wrote here on mitochondrial dysfunction in depth. But as a quick recap: mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cells, generating the body’s energy currency called ATP.
