The Model Health Show

The health of your mitochondria has the capacity to impact nearly every process and reaction in your body. Recent research suggests that mitochondrial function relates to the aging process, immune function, the body’s renewal processes, and more. But what do you actually know about improving the health of your mitochondria?

This topic isn’t one that’s talked about often, but it’s of utmost importance, especially in the conversation surrounding viral infections. On this episode of The Model Health Show, Mike Mutzel from High-Intensity Health is back to discuss the link between mitochondrial function and COVID-19 outcomes and how natural immunity works. 

You’re going to learn powerful, free, and accessible strategies you can use to improve your mitochondrial health.  We’re diving into topics like autophagy and mitophagy, the life cycle of cells, and how to optimize your immune system. I hope you find this information empowering, realistic, and applicable no matter where you are on your health journey.
