Oxidative Phosphorylation is the metabolic pathway in which mitochondria use their structure, enzymes, and energy released by the oxidation of nutrients to create ATP.
If cells become oxygen deficient, the condition known as hypoxia (no oxygen) occurs. This condition can be due to abnormally acidic blood or a lack of critical enzymes necessary for releasing oxygen from red blood cells, so when this oxidative cycle is oxygen deficient, it can’t produce the quantity nor quality of ATP necessary for normal cellular functioning.
“Oxygen is alkaline forming in the blood, while carbon dioxide which is produced as a by-product of the oxidation process is acid forming. The ratio between them is intimately connected with maintaining optimal blood pH of 7.46, which is the primary goal of the nutritional protocols of metabolic profiling. At this pH

All sides of the cycle (carbohydrates, fats, and proteins) must be in balance for complete energy production. Some people’s metabolic process is expressly connected to the Krebs cycle. Think of an oxidizer as someone with a direct plug in to this system and, therefore, is dependent upon his/her metabolic rate (how fast he/she burns glucose) for ATP.
Some oxidizer types are Fast Oxidizers, because they burn glucose too fast (and run out of energy), while others are Slow Oxidizers, because they burn glucose too slowly (and don’t burn it up). Some are Mixed types who need consistently balanced carbs, fats, and protein to sustain a healthy metabolic rate.
Slow Oxidizers
Slow oxidizers burn nutrients too slowly; the glucose in food enters their bloodstream very gradually over time. Slow Oxidizers can have a bowl of fruit and feel fine for a couple hours. They can have a high carbohydrate/low protein/fat meal and feel fine without hypoglycimia, because they burn it so
