ROS causes cancer, yes you heard that correctly. The over expression of ROS has been shown cause Mitochondrial disease and even Cancer!

As cancer cells contain higher level of endogenous ROS than normal cells, the toxic threshold can be easily achieved in cancer cells compared to normal cells(5)

Welcome to another edition in the Mitochondria series, if you have missed my last articles click here and here.

T he over expression of ROS has been shown cause Mitochondrial disease and even Cancer! As cancer cells contain higher level of endogenous ROS than normal cells, the toxic threshold can be easily achieved in cancer cells compared to normal cells(5) Welcome to another edition in the Mitochondria series, if you have missed my last articles click here and here. Today you are going to learn why ROS may hold the key towards optimal health! ROS And Mitochondrial Disease T he production of ROS (reactive oxygen species) is made within mammalian mitochondria and it is extremely important, because it underlies oxidative damage in your body (Cellular rusting) ROS is f ormed in the mitochondria by reduction of molecular oxygen that is mediated by reactive compounds such as semi-ubiquinone (coQ), which are involved in electron transport chain. ROS causes oxidative stress, mutations, and promotes tumor f ormation and progression. T he growth promoting ef f ects of oxidative stress in cancer is due to oxidative stress responsive signal transduction. Oxidative stress is also implicated in aging, and many diseases including heart, lung and neurodegenerative diseases.(1) Remember ROS is a normal part of your cellular process. T he problem arises, is when ROS is being expressed too much and my cause the f ollowing Mitochondrial diseases. Just to name a f ew. Alpers Disease Barth Syndrome / LIC (Lethal Inf antile Cardiomyopathy) Beta-oxidation Def ects Carnitine-Acyl-Carnitine Def iciency Carnitine Def iciency Co-Enzyme Q10 Def iciency Complex I Def iciency Complex II Def iciency Complex III Def iciency
  2. 2. Complex IV Def iciency / COX Def iciency Complex V Def iciency Lactic Acidosis LBSL – Leukodystrohpy Leigh Disease or Syndrome What Causes ROS to Increase? # 1 over expression of insulin: Insulin has been shown to increase ROS (2) Now Insulin is not evil, however when you take into consideration our diet of processed f oods, sugar, grains and HFC this comes as no surprise that your insulin is constantly elevated. Pause f or a moment, and think about… look at our rate of type 2 diabetes and metabolic issues; it is all connected with the homeostatic values of insulin. And it gets even worse… As now you get trapped in a viscous cycle as insulin increase in unnatural levels, ROS f ollows, as ROS increase, one starts to become insulin resistant, hence the evil cycle; they both f eed each other down a dark hole known as insulin resistance and or type 2 diabetes (2) # 2 Coq10 deficiency: Coenzyme Q10 is one of the most signif icant lipid antioxidants, you probably heard about it being healthy f or your heart, well that’s the truth What you probably didn’t know is that is also responsible f or controlling ROS and mitigating the ef f ects of mitochondrial disease. T he concentration of coenzyme Q10 in the human body decreases and the def iciency of coenzyme Q10 leads to the dysf unction of the respiratory chain (Energy power house), CoQ10 can neutralize f ree radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause. Inhibiting mitochondrial depolarization independently of its f ree radical-scavenging property does this.(3) “ Treatment with CoQ10, but not with riboflavin, could normalize the CoQ10 level and decrease the level of ROS in the patient cells. Additionally, riboflavin-depleted control fibroblasts showed moderate CoQ10 deficiency, but not increased mitochondrial ROS, indicating that variant ETF-QO proteins and not CoQ10 deficiency are the causes of mitochondrial ROS production in the patient cells. Accordingly, the corresponding variant Rhodobacter sphaeroides ETF-QO proteins, when overexpressed in vitro, bind a CoQ10 pseudosubstrate, Q10Br, less tightly than the wild-type ETF-QO protein, suggesting that molecular oxygen can get access to the electrons in the misfolded ETF-QO protein, thereby generating superoxide and oxidative stress, which can be reversed by CoQ10 treatment.” Comes as no surprise that CoQ10 def iciency is rampant f rom the consumption of the SAD diet, environmental f actors, lack of sleep, stress and so much more!
  3. 3. # 3 NAC (N-acetyl cysteine) A precursor to glutathione that has benef icial implications when it comes to controlling the expression of your ROS. NAC plays an important role in the regulation of apoptosis, due to its role as a substrate of ROS scavenging enzymes. NAC has been widely used as a research tool in the f ield of apoptosis research f or investigating the role of ROS in the induction of apoptosis. It is generally assumed that the action of NAC results f rom its antioxidative or f ree radical scavenging property through increasing intracellular GSH levels (6) I do want to stress the importance that Magnesium plays, as it is another huge crucial element when it comes to controlling ROS. One, you need magnesium to actually create Glutathione, and two, magnesium has a relationship with ROS in terms of control (8) T he lower levels of NAC you have, the lower GSH levels your body has… Not-Good-At-all Next big question is, what depletes your GSH levels? Some of these substances are listed below: Acetaminophen (Tylenol) and other pharmaceuticals; Acetone, solvents, paint removers, f uels, f uel by-products Heavy metals (mercury (dental amalgams), lead, cadmium, copper, etc.) pesticides, herbicides Nitrates and other f ood preservatives of chemical origin (in salami, hot dogs, hams, smoked f oods, etc.) Artif icial sweetener aspartame Benzopyrenes (tobacco smoke, barbecued f oods, f uel exhaust, etc.) Alcohol– YES — I am sorry, I know Household chemicals (synthetically scented and colored detergents and f abric sof teners, air f resheners, mothballs, mildew removers, cleaners and bleach, lawn and plant f ertilizers, etc.) Housewares chemicals (non-stick coating of pans and skillets, plastic containers and linings of tin cans and other f ood packaging) Formaldehyde and styrene (photocopiers and toner printers) Chlorine in treated water Medical X-rays UV radiation Industrial pollutants. EMF (7) T his is the real truth, and I will be talking about this in more detail on later posts… Ameer Protocol To Decrease ROS And Enhance Mitochondrial Health
  4. 4. # 1 Eat a Paleo Diet Try to keep it on the low carb of things, expect f or summer and f all when f ruit and tubers are in abundance and locally sourced. Remember, the more express your insulin in unnatural levels, the greater degree of ROS is being expressed. In my practice when I see clients with extreme Mitochondrial issues, I put them on a Ketogenic diet, as it has been shown in studies, that the Ketogenic diet– lowers ROS (8) I can attest to that, as I have seen it with myself and within my practice that once you adopt this diet your Mitochondrial markers improve… ”Animals received intracranial injections of bioluminescent GL261-luc cells and tumor growth was followed in vivo. KD treatment significantly reduced the rate of tumor growth and prolonged survival. Further, the KD reduced reactive oxygen species (ROS) production in tumor cells. Gene expression profiling demonstrated that the KD induces an overall reversion to expression patterns seen in non-tumor specimens. Notably, genes involved in modulating ROS levels and oxidative stress were altered, including those encoding cyclooxygenase 2, glutathione peroxidases 3 and 7, and periredoxin” 2# Supplement with Cq10 Eat plenty of healthy f ats f rom an Ancestral Paleo diet Include these f oods which contain high amount of COQ10) When you start eating a cyclic Ketogenic Diet your f ocus should be on Fish and Organs meats, which contain a high af f inity of Coq10. Food Source # 1: Fish CoQ10 is established distinctively in f atty f ish like tuna, salmon, mackerel, halibut, sardines and herring. T hese kinds of f ish are also rich in omega-3 f atty acids, which control swelling and may possibly aid in decreasing the danger of heart ailment. Food Source# 2: Meats A natural source of CoQ10 is red meat, especially the organs. T he liver, heart and kidney are all supplies of CoQ10. Additional meats like pork, chicken and venison also contain CoQ10. Meat organs contain a certain proportion of CoQ10 like: beef heart contains 39.2 mg/g; pork heart has 113.3 mg/g and venison contains 126.8 mg/g of genuine CoQ10, as stated at the 2001 copy of the Journal of Food Composition and Analysis. I also recommend that you start using Coq10 to jump-start your Mitochondria and decrease ROS. Side Note Ubiquinol is the most bioavailable form. My preferred brand is: Lif e Extension Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 with Enhanced Mitochondrial Support. # 3 Restore your NAC and Glutathione levels.
  5. 5. Eat the f ollowing f oods to enhance GSH levels and reduce ROS. Cysteine is f ound in a variety of f oods including: Poultry Raw yogurt Egg yolks Red peppers Garlic Onions Broccoli Brussels sprouts I consume all of these f oods minus the yogurt and make a soup. I have this at least twice a week, yum, yum Next; I recommend including NAC supplement: I pref er Lif e extension brand as a precursor to glutathione. Once again, we want to jump start your mitochondria, and this is only temporary. I like to have my clients to be on NAC at least 3 months. Now the dose depends on each individual, and some do not tolerate it well, as it is to detoxif ying, while others do amazing on it. So please work closely with your health practitioner. And there you have it. A simple run down of ROS and why it is one of the most important f actors when it comes to achieving optimal health.
