Mitochondria question?

Discussion in 'Beginners Area' started by Stephen W, Jan 10, 2019.

    If C02 is an exhaust product of mitochondria function, does this increase blood C02 levels higher if your mitochondria is functioning very well?

    And what about alveolar C02 levels?
    Thanks

    Not if the system is operating well. If it is not C02 is not quantized and the results will be obvious to the clinician who knows what to look for.

    Ok. The reason I ask is that Dr. Artour Rakhimov from normalbreathing.com (Buteyko) says that my turbinates in my nose shrink when I slow my breathing because my C02 levels normalise in my body as I retain more C02 (blood and alveolar I believe) but I reckon they shrink because of the adrenaline from half suffocating. I have turbinate swelling issues.
    Thanks

    And my thoughts were that if my mitochondria were functioning well and optimally and producing more co2, maybe I wouldn’t have to try to reduce breathing so much to shrink my turbinates. I probably have this all arse about face
