What is the best diet for mitochondrial disease?
Try to include a protein such as eggs or dairy, a carbohydrate such as wholegrain toast or cereal, and fruit. It’s important to eat regularly when you have mito, because not eating can make you feel even more tired. You should avoid fasting, dieting or limiting your food intake in any way.
Does fasting help mitochondria?
Mitochondrial biogenesis and function are mediated by different activators, regulators, and transcription factors such as PGC-1α and Nrf2. Research has suggested that fasting may enhance these mediators to promote mitochondrial biogenesis and improve mitochondrial function.
