MitoCanada Foundation

What you don’t know can hurt you. 

In Canada, it’s estimated more than 5.5 million adults suffer from diseases in which mitochondrial dysfunction is involved: Diabetes, Kidney Disease, Alzheimer’s, Liver Disease, Parkinson’s, Stroke, Autism, Cancer, Heart Disease, Blindness, Migraine, Infertility, ALS, Deafness, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and more.

Mitochondrial disease is a group of disorders caused by dysfunctional mitochondria – mitochondria that don’t work properly. Mitochondria are responsible for creating more than 90% of the energy needed to sustain life and support organ function. 

When your mitochondria don’t working properly, you suffer all the symptoms of low energy: fatigue, memory loss, pain, rapid aging, and more. Along the way, many things can go wrong that may slow down your metabolism, make it run less efficiently, or practically shut it down.

Taking care of your mitochondria will allow you to increase your energy and age well. 

MitoCanada is committed to educating the public about our mitochondria and how we can reduce the risk of age-related diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, heart disease etc. and slow down the aging process for overall improved health and vitality.

During the month of November we encourage Canadians to take the mitotest and DONATE.
