Metabolism, Mitochondria and Deuterium. How they correlate.


Our bodies need a lot of ENERGY to function properly.

   This energy is created by “little engines” inside our cells (called mitochondria) which power our entire bodies.
   But as we get older, our mitochondria accumulate damage and create less and less energy. With this loss of energy, our bodies start to break down, the aging process kicks in, diseases start forming and our health falls apart quickly.
   The good news is, the SOLUTION IS SIMPLE — repair the damaged
mitochondria so the body has enough energy to function properly… and make sure the mitochondria don’t get damaged again.

Effects of Deuterium excess

DEUTERIUM decreases your Energy production

DEUTERIUM decreases your ability to use energy you create

DEUTERIUM changes the chemical reaction in your metabolism

DEUTERIUM changes the shape of proteins, fats and carbohydrates

DEUTERIUM causes accelerated aging and disease

DEUTERIUM changes the chemical reaction in your metabolism

How to decrease Deuterium concentrations to optimal levels !!!

Deuterium Depleted Water (DDW)

   By drinking water that is depleted in deuterium, you dilute the deuterium that exists in your body. 

   With lower levels of deuterium, your mitochondria operate much better and create optimal energy for your body.

   By drinking Deuterium Depleted Water, you can easily lower your deuterium levels and turn back the clock on aging and disease.

Human Body

Deuterium Depleted Food

Eating foods that are low in deuterium is essential to rebuilding your metabolism and ability to produce energy.

We follow an easy-to-follow dietary program that focuses on adding deuterium depleted foods from high quality sources and eliminating high-deuterium foods.

The results are a faster metabolism, more energy, and more mental clarity.


There are many  environmental factors that affect our mitochondria. 

The goal is to maintain a lifestyle approach focused on getting back to nature and learning how to lower your exposure to man-made technologies that affect your cellular health.

A closer look at Metabolism

What powers body metabolism?

It’s the “Little Engines” inside your cells called mitochondria that create energy from the food we eat. This process is called metabolism.

What breaks your metabolism?

Deuterium. Deuterium is a rare form of hydrogen that enters our body from the foods we eat, liquids we drink, and the air we breathe. Deuterium breaks the “little engines” when there is too high of levels inside of our cells.

Do you know what modern complex diseases like cancer, obesity, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and chronic fatigue have in common?

It’s too much deuterium for the body to deplete. This leads to more broken mitochondria and little energy to power your body. Your body becomes a car with a tank almost on empty. Sometimes it gets so bad your car breaks down and disease happens.

More details about Deuterium

Deuterium has all of the same properties as hydrogen, except it’s twice the weight. This is due to an added neutron to go with the proton in the nucleus. Because of this, deuterium is also referred to as “Heavy Hydrogen”.

In nature, deuterium helps things grow. For example, deuterium is really high in babies and small plants. However, having too much deuterium in our cells can lead to major problems. The “little engines” in our cells (the mitochondria), when functioning properly, actually deplete deuterium to protect critical functions of the cell. But, due to our poor environments and bad lifestyle, we have way too much deuterium inside of the cell and this overwhelms our “little engines”.

This starts a vicious cycle of deuterium building up and breaking more of our mitochondria. When our mitochondria break, our metabolism slows to a halt.

How can you Measure Your Levels of Deuterium?

When it comes to achieving optimal health, knowing your deuterium levels and your metabolic efficiency should be the main focus.

It is equally important to know how much deuterium is in the foods you eat and the beverages you drink. We use these as a road map to wellness.

Testing allows you to determine what metabolic pathways and level of deuterium is associated with the biological response you need for something as simple as weight loss or as complicated as stopping the growth of a cancer or occurrence of Alzheimer’s.

This simple saliva test can be done in the privacy of your home, it is easy to do and delivers an accurate and fast result.

Hydrating the right way in the 21st Century

Hydrate the Right Way

When an individual is thirsty, they think of water. What most people don’t know is that it’s hydrogen that our body wants. However, some sources have greater amounts of hydrogen than others do. There are various ways to maximize intake. Food is a primary source for hydrogen, but it is tied up in complex molecules. This means it needs to be metabolized to release the hydrogen.

When you don’t get the right amount of hydrogen, you are at risk of dehydration. It has been linked to many maladies. One way or another, all symptoms of disease and aging has been linked to lack of hydrogen.

Get the right amount of hydrogen your body needs with I am Well Today. We offer a drink made of light water rich in hydrogen content and depleted in deuterium. It also has key natural amino acids that your body needs. You can trust our drink to improve your energy level. For more in-depth information about light water, check out our provided resource.

The Dangers of Deuterium

The 2016 Nobel Prize in chemistry was awarded for discoveries that involved nanomotors in the mitochondria. Each minute, these tiny motors produce energy by interchanging countless hydrogen atoms. To carry out daily tasks, you need sufficient energy. If there is a shortage, your body will be forced to prioritize functions and may not even have the adequate energy to preserve a strong and responsive immune system.

Natural water contains deuterium, one of the two stable isotopes of hydrogen. It is larger and heavier. Apart from this, it has notable negative effects on your health. High concentrations may prevent your body healthy cells from creating energy, in result causing premature aging and a vulnerable immune system.

Benefits of Light Drink

With deuterium-depleted drink, you can receive more hydrogen that your body needs. Its many benefits include:

  • Deplete your organ tissues your brain tissues and Muscle tissues from deuterium
  • Improve Mitochondria Function
  • Improve Metabolism and boost energy
  • Provide support to prevent chronic disease
  • Support anti-aging and improve vitality

Mitochondria Facts

As most people know, Mitochondria are tiny double-membrane organelles, known also as “powerhouse of the cell”; they are primarily responsible to convert the oxygen we breath and food we eat into energy our cells can use to grow, divide and function.

In addition to producing nearly 90% of the energy (ATP synthesis) our body needs to function, Mitochondria are responsible for other vital tasks, including:

  • regulating vital Calcium levels
  • regulating Innate Immunity
  • programmed Cell Death
  • regulating Cell Metabolism

 They dictate how you feel and are the bedrock of a strong body and a powerful mind.  In order to produce the energy, mitochondria needs oxygen, and produces CO2 as a waste product, hence we breathe in oxygen and breath out carbon dioxide.

When mitochondria dysfunction occurs, researches have been shown that serious diseases are directly linked.
