Mitochondria: Strength, Energy and Healthy Brain Function

Veronica Yoo is back and super excited to share her knowledge on the most important element in human health: mitochondria, the “powerhouse” of the cell that creates energy while using oxygen and nutrients from food. The cells in the brain, heart, nerves, muscles and organs all have higher concentrations of mitochondria and when they are working well, they help reduce fatigue, pain and cognitive problems while supporting muscle mass and burning excess fat. 
In this workshop you will learn the basics of mitochondria, strategies for optimizing mitochondria for brain protection and anti-aging, how to reduce pain, increase energy, create a therapeutic food plan and much more.  There will be plenty of time for Q & A at the end of the workshop as well. You don't want to miss this one!
