Iron Toxicity Post #47: The truth about the cause of mitochondrial dysfunction (as least as I see it)
How the key (copper) and the fuel (cardiolipin) prevents mitochondrial dysfunction in the lipids getting rusty. The cause of mitochondrial dysfunction.
Iron Toxicity Post #29: Irregular iron blood markers especially low ferritin is code for more magnesium, ceruloplasmin and B2
When iron blood markers show irregularities, especially low ferritin, we know that’s code for the need for more magnesium, ceruloplasmin (bioavailable copper) and riboflavin (B2).
Iron Toxicity Post #11: If the Sun is the ‘center’ of our Universe, I’m coming to regard Ceruloplasmin as the ‘Sun’ of our universe of metabolic activity.
Iron is the ‘stressor’ that is causing excess loss of magnesium. It is the causative agent to create oxygen stress, and nitrogen stress that is at the heart of neutering ceruloplasmin. Ceruloplasmin is the very protein/enzyme that is essential to properly manage this toxic metal and Morley talks about the studies on the structure and function of ceruloplasmin and the relationship with iron.
