The main reason why we age and get diseases is because of dysfunctional mitochondria.


Mitochondria is the powerhouse and fuel source of the cell and its primary role is to regulate energy production. It produces energy through the use of oxygen to produce Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). ATP transports chemical energy within cells for metabolism. Mitochondria is present in all tissue and every cell uses ATP for energy.


Mitochondria decreases as we age and if we lose mitochondria, all sorts of diseases can take place.


As we age, the function and the amount of mitochondria decreases. This means that lesser antioxidants available in the mitochondria and there is more production of free radicals.


Dysfunctional mitochondria underlies the majority of disease states that we see in this day and age and a lot of that is heritable. The child of two obese and diabetic parents can cause the child to have mitochondrial dysfunction and similar disease states just like them.


The good news is that we can feed the mitochondria and from new mitochondria.


This process is also known as mitochondria biogenesis.



Mitochondria biogenesis can be achieved in a few ways. One of these ways is to up our blood ketone levels and get into a state of ketosis. Ketosis is a metabolic state where your brain switched to a hybrid mode and relies on ketones and fat as its primary fuel source.


Drinking Keto NAT is the fastest way to get into ketosis without having to make drastic changes to your diet, eating habits or lifestyle. It’s as simple as mixing it with water and drinking it twice daily for a BETTER you.

I'm currently into module 6 of the Keto Mastery course and it has been an amazing journey so far. I've learnt so much about more health in the last 6 months than I've learnt through my almost 40 years of being alive!


Here's one of the things that Ive learnt.


What we need to understand, and this has been documented over and over again, is that as we age, our ability to utilise glucose as a fuel goes down. The older we get, the less able we are to utilise glucose as a fuel source.


This has also been referred to as Type 3 Diabetes; When you’re healthy, your cells can sense insulin, it can normally take up and utilise glucose at the cellular level.


In Type 1 Diabetes, your pancreas isn’t able to produce insulin, that’s why you need to deliver it exogenously.


In Type 2 Diabetes, you are producing insulin. It’s just that the receptors on the cell are resistant to taking up and utilising glucose.


Type 3 Diabetes is very similar to Type 2 Diabetes, except that it’s in the brain.


Our brains are becoming more and more insulin resistant thereby unable to utilise glucose as its primary fuel source.


Studies have shown that as we get older cerebral glucose metabolism is going down, almost in a linear fashion. The older we get, the less able we are to utilise glucose as a fuel source.


This is also known as Brain Hypometabolism. This leads down a vicious cycle, a lot of it not only leading to Alzheimer’s, but also other neurological disorders like Parkinson’s and dementia.


People suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury (concussions, falls, car crashes) also suffer from short term dysfunction of the brain caused by blunt or mechanical force causing the brain to be starving for energy.



How can ketones provide fuel to the brain?


Ketones are a more efficient source of energy than glucose and it can: -

* Stimulate mitochondria biogenesis

* Help improve energy metabolism


When glucose utilisation is impaired, ketone uptake and utilisation is not.


This is why my mum, my dad, my grandmother and some of my other family members are drinking ketones. Sure it helps keep us slim as well, but the benefits are way more than just how we look.


By the way, if you wanna know how to get your ketones for free, me drop me a DM. Shhhhh don't tell anyone!! 🤫

So a good friend of mine sent me the photo on the left to remind me of our times we spend during our Singapore Idol days. That was a great moment in life as I got to experience the ups and downs of being in the spotlight. As I begin to examine the pictures she sent, I was like "Why is my face so fat???”



On the left was me 17 years ago when I thought that I was young and dangerous. Yes, I was “dangerously" drinking all kinds of alcohol, smoking one big pack (20 sticks) of cigarettes daily, eating whatever the hell I could get my hands on, sleeping 3 hours a day and I hardly exercised at all. I felt like a slave to cigarettes, alcohol and junk food.


Fast forward to 2018, after all these years of damaging my body and trying all sorts of ways to get myself to a healthier state, I’ve finally found something that is sustainable and easy to adhere to. No crazy diets or exercise regimes, just 2 servings daily. The picture on the right is me in October 2019 (please pardon my serious face, I was walking on fire! 🤣) . I feel happier, mentally stronger and physically leaner than I was in my twenties and most importantly, I feel healthier because I have gained my life back.


As a nutrition coach, I hope to inspire more people to take control of their lives by getting into a better state of health. Unfortunately, it's not as simple as eating less and exercising more. People always say that health is wealth. As cliche as it sounds, it’s true. No amount of money can save you if you don’t take care of you body when you still can.


It’s not just about the way you look but also the way you feel. Many people believe that what they have in front of them right now is all that they can have. Some even believe that that’s all they deserve.


Your beliefs determine how you think and how you feel.

How you think and how you feel then determines your actions.

And your actions determine your reality.


What is your reality?
