The mitochondria are the powerhouses of your cells which turn nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats & protein into energy that your body will use to live.
Your mitochondria produce roughly 90% of the energy your cells require and can be found in the sub-compartments of the cells called the “Organelles”.
New research is now showing the stronger your mitochondria are, the more protected your DNA is.
And the more damaged accumulated by mitochondria, the more frequent it steals from the healthy DNA to repair itself.
If you want to age healthily, you need mitochondria function to be running smoothly & efficiently.
Because healthy mitochondria mean the cells in your body can do their task of repairing and most importantly, keeping you alive!
Your brain, heart, and eyes are packed with mitochondria with the majority of your mitochondria being in these parts of your body - only your red blood cells don’t have mitochondria.
Unfortunately, it looks like there are more factors damaging our mitochondria than helping us.
Most humans work behind computers with no natural sunlight, staring at screens that emit blue light, eating junk food and our stress levels are higher than ever.
Let’s take a look at the worst offenders for your mitochondria...
