What is Mitochondria

They are the power house of every cell.

Mitochondria are usually called the powerhouses of the cells. They generate the energy that our cells need to do their jobs. Muscle fibers and especially of the heart need a lot of energy to function without stoping.

Mitochondria generate chemical energy, that can be compared to that of a battery or the fuel that powers our cars. The energy made by the mitochondria is in the form of a chemical called adenosine triphosphate or ATP for short. ATP is an energy currency that every cell in our body can use and it keeps us alive. The movement of protons across the inner mitochondrial membrane (by the electron transport chain) creates a charge differential (voltage) that will be used to synthesize ATP

 Electrons that are produced from the degradation of the food we eat  and supplements goes through a series of processes moving more protons across the inner mitochondrial membrane, creating a gradient  that is then used to produce ATP. This proton gradient repeat the final process int he series of processes and with each rotation an ATP is made. For every cycle of the electron transport chain, over 30 ATPs are produced, this shows how efficient energy generation is within the mitochondria. Decreased cell function can be linked to defective mitochondrial units such as demonstrated in cardiac dysfunction. Supplementing key components that partake in ATP production has shown promise in increasing ATP production and the organ they power. Be it heart or muscle, cell repair, handling oxidative stress, fast recovery from exercise.
