Neurodegenerative disorders include dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease. At the root of these disorders are the mitochondria; the energy centers of cells. When the complex process of metabolizing energy at this root level breaks down it impairs energy production. This in turn impairs brain function. Learn about the process and what you can do to prevent that process from going awry.
