Effect of off-season and non-local foods on mitochondria

According to some theories, eating out-of-season and non-local foods can have a significant impact on the functioning of our mitochondria, the cell organelles responsible for energy production. Let's take a closer look at the possible mechanisms of this influence and its potential consequences for our health.

Photosynthesis, deuterium and the photoelectric effect

Plants that grow in different climates have different levels of deuterium (heavy hydrogen) in their tissues. The increased presence of deuterium in food could affect biochemical processes in mitochondria, for example disrupting the function of enzymes involved in the Krebs cycle.
Another factor is the photoelectric effect and the quality of the photons. During photosynthesis, plants absorb light, and the quality of incident photons affects the energy level of the electrons in their cells. The consumption of foods that grew under different lighting conditions could also affect our mitochondria through these energetic properties.

Consequences of consuming non-local and out-of-season foods

Eating out-of-season and non-local foods can lead to increased inflammation in the body. The latter is associated with higher production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and nitrogen species (RNS), which can damage various cellular components, including mitochondria. The resulting oxidative stress then contributes to mitochondrial dysfunction, which is associated with a number of health problems from metabolic disorders to neurodegenerative diseases.
Another possible mechanism involves electron-photon mismatch. Food enters the mitochondria in the form of electrons and protons through cytochromes. Non-local and non-seasonal foods with different photonic properties could disrupt the flow of electrons and protons in the mitochondria and thus introduce chaos into cellular energy production.

Recommendations and conclusion

The mentioned theories and hypotheses indicate that the consumption of out-of-season and non-local foods can have a negative effect on the functioning of our mitochondria through increased inflammation, oxidative stress and disruption of electron flow due to different photonic properties.
It is therefore recommended to focus on local and seasonal foods to support overall health and optimal mitochondrial function. These better correspond to the natural conditions of the given area and have evolved in accordance with the metabolic processes of our body.
A varied, balanced diet based on quality and fresh food is the basis for the proper functioning of the body and the prevention of a number of health problems related to mitochondrial dysfunction. The inclusion of local and seasonal foods in the menu can thus be an important step to support our health and vitality.​​​​​​​​
