Think of mitochondria as the little energy bunnies running around inside each cell, banging their drums and generating the energy to operate at peak efficiency. Now, imagine that each cell in your body has thousands of these little bunnies marching around and pounding out chemical energy.
We need these organelles - they make up most of the cell’s supply of ATP - adenosine triphosphate which converts the energy from food into energy we can use. MtDNA are present in every cell, and we need them for our very survival.
Because these energy producers are constantly active, and because they are a double membrane organelle found in the cytoplasm and not in the nucleus, they do not have histones and introns like standard DNA to protect them from free radical damage. They are much more exposed and more susceptible to oxidative damage. Mitochondrial cell division takes place approximately every five to six days. Any damaged cells are replicated quickly, so damaged mtDNA can spread rapidly. This is what eventually depletes the patient’s energy level and may lead to abnormal cellular formation.
Keeping Mitochondria vital
Monitoring Mitochondrial health is simply becoming aware of the role of MtDNA and making certain the energy production is constant. Nutrition, hydration, deep breathing all are natural and dynamic generators for Mitochondrial chemical energy production. We recommend certain supplements for active people, including athletes, which feature stabilized phospholipids, stabilized NADH and CoQ10 additives. Our ATP Fuel tablets not only optimize energy levels, they also promote cellular repair.
Vitamin Fuel for Mitochondria
Certain vitamins enhance the performance of Mitochondria.f food energy is not providing them, then our Mitochondrial Catalyst can. This is an economical supplement that contains necessary Alpha Keto Glutarate, Inosine, Glycine Propionyl-L-Carnitine, N-Acetyl-L-Carnosine, Triacetyluridine, Thiamin and Riboflavin-5-Phosphate. This cocktail not only enhances the energy production, but strengthens the cytoplasm walls.
You can turbocharge your energy producers. Our ATP 360, developed by Dr. Debby Hamilton, MD, MPH, Director of Physician Education & Clinical Trials at Researched Nutritionals®, is formulated to provide complete mitochondrial support, by promoting normal mitochondrial growth and mitosis, supporting healthy mitochondrial membrane, and supplying the necessary cofactors for optimal cellular energy production.
