What Is Mitochondrial Disease?
When mitochondria cannot convert food and oxygen into life-sustaining energy, cell injury and even cell death follow. When this process is repeated throughout the body, organ systems begin to fail and even stop functioning.
Did you know?
Every 30 minutes a child is born who will develop a mitochondrial disease by age 10.
We All Have Mitochondria.
Mitochondria exist in nearly every cell of the human body. It’s responsible for creating 90% of the energy you need to sustain life and support organ function.
Why Do Mitochondria Malfunction?
There is still so much to uncover, but this is what we do know. Mitochondrial disease is an inherited condition. Your mitochondria can also be affected by other genetic disorders and environmental factors. You can learn more about the biology behind mitochondrial disease here.
How Mitochondrial Disease Affects the Body
The parts of your body that need the most energy – heart, brain, muscles – are most affected by mitochondrial disease. An affected individual may exhibit a spectrum of symptoms.

Brain: developmental delays, dementia, migraines, autistic features, seizure, stroke, atypical cerebral palsy, learning disabilities
Muscles: weakness/failure, cramping, reflux, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, hypotonia, dysmotility

DEUTERIUM-DEPLETED WATER IS AVAILABLE TO BUY HERE
THE GOOD NEWS:
DEUTERIUM-DEPLETED WATER CONTAINS UP TO TEN TIMES LESS DEUTERIUM THAN FRUITS AND VEGETABLES! THIS IS WHY DEUTERIUM-DEPLETED WATER IS THE BEST SOLUTION FOR HELPING MITOCHONDRIA WORK PROPERLY!
Deuterium-depleted water is best for mitochondria, because all the energy that mitochondria is using for neutralizing deuterium is made available for your metabolism, being redirected to fighting diseases.
