Mitochondrial Dysfunction Can Appear in Many Ways

Many of the terms that are presented as “diagnoses” in medicine are simply descriptions based on symptoms and basic testing, and not based on the actual cause(s) of disease. Mitochondrial disorder is a perfect example. When people are searching for “mito cocktails” or “mito supplements”, there is usually a broad range of conditions they are trying to address.

Research has found a degree of mitochondrial dysfunction as a root cause for all of the common conditions listed below. Click on a condition to link to a research study. Papers authored/co-authored by Dr. Richard Boles are marked with an *.

All of the above-listed conditions are complex, with multiple factors contributing in the cause of disease within each individual person. All of these conditions are related in some manner to mitochondrial dysfunction or mitochondrial disease.

Mitochondrial Dysfunction is Treatable with Dietary Supplementation
(Mitochondrial Cocktail)

Optimal mitochondrial function is highly dependent on the presence of multiple vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that have important roles in energy metabolism. When energy metabolism is not working correctly, a wide range of disorders can arise as illustrated around DaVinci’s Vitruvian Man. The answer often is a mitochondrial cocktail designed to nourish your system.

For decades, many progressive physicians have been advocating a treatment regiment for mitochondrial dysfunction consisting of high doses of multiple dietary supplements. The term “mitochondrial cocktail” refers to a large group of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that have important roles in energy metabolism. Dietary supplementation with these nutrients, generally at higher dosing than that achievable by diet, can often improve mitochondrial function, restore health, and mitigate disease.

NeuroNeeds® Has Made the Mitochondrial Cocktail Easy and Affordable


SpectrumNeeds® (powder) and EnergyNeeds® (capsules) are high-powered mitochondrial supplements designed by a collaborative of prominent physicians and scientists.  They are often used to optimize nutrition for a wide-range of disorders associated with mitochondrial dysfunction.  

SpectrumNeeds® and EnergyNeeds® can serve as a baseline comprehensive nutritional supplement for patients with any condition associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. In essence, these products are designed to offer a high-powered mitochondrial cocktail combined with optimized general nutrition. They are both designed to be a safe nutritional supplement for anyone regardless of the underlying genetics, signs or symptoms, severity of mito disease, age, and/or general health.


Many chronic conditions, especially those involving mitochondrial function, can increase the demand for coenzyme Q10 (coQ10) in the body, leading to deficiency. CoQ10 supplementation is often recommended for a variety of different medical conditions, including functional (e.g., pain, fatigue), neurodevelopmental (e.g., autism, ADHD), and cardiac (e.g., hypercholesterolemia on statin drugs) conditions. QNeeds® soft gel capsules provides additional coQ10 in the ubiquinol form to help boost antioxidant support.
