BiotiQuest® Gut Health & Probiotics Blog with Martha Carlin

Unleash Your Energy: The Hidden Role of Minerals | Microbes and Energy | Mitochondrial Health

Martha Carlin | Jul 04, 2024 | Podcast

The conversation explores the interconnectedness of minerals, microbes, and mitochondria in relation to energy production and overall health. The analogy of blindfolded individuals describing different parts of an elephant is used to illustrate how different perspectives contribute to our understanding of complex systems. The importance of minerals, such as copper, magnesium, and retinol, in energy production is emphasized. The role of microbes in providing energy and maintaining tissue integrity is discussed, as well as the significance of melanin and its connection to Parkinson's disease. The impact of fluoride and iodine on the body is also explored. The conversation explores the connection between copper, iron, and the microbiome in relation to human health and agriculture. It highlights the importance of copper in the body and the detrimental effects of iron accumulation. The discussion also delves into the impact of glyphosate on the soil microbiome and the need for regenerative agriculture practices. The conversation emphasizes the interconnectedness of the soil microbiome, plant health, animal health, and human health.

Martha Carlin photo Martha Carlin, is a “Citizen Scientist”, systems thinker, wife of Parkinson’s warrior, John Carlin, and founder of The BioCollective , a microbiome company expanding the reach of science and BiotiQuest, the first of it’s kind probiotic line. Since John’s diagnosis in 2002, Martha began learning the science of agriculture, nutrition, environment, infectious disease, Parkinson’s pathology and much more. In 2014, when the first research was published showing a connection between the gut bacteria and the two phenotypes of Parkinson’s, Martha quit her former career as a business turnaround expert and founded The BioCollective to accelerate the discovery of the impact of gut health on all human disease. Martha was a speaker at the White House 2016 Microbiome Initiative launch, challenging the scientific community to “think in a broader context”. Her systems thinking background and experience has led to collaborations across the scientific spectrum from neuroscience to engineering to infectious disease. She is a respected out of the box problem solver in the microbiome field and brings a unique perspective to helping others understand the connections from the soil to the food to our guts and our brains.
