Testing for Mitochondrial Function: Optimize Your Cells' Health
Dec 28, 2023
In today’s article, we are going to talk about why mitochondria are so vital, discuss some of the problems that can emerge, and examine current methods of testing for mitochondrial function. We will also assess how these testing methods can be used to support optimal health and well-being.
Unleashing Cellular Vitality: Mastering Mitochondrial Health
Sep 28, 2023
Mitochondria are essential structures present in the majority of eukaryotic life forms, including humans. Mitochondria are responsible for generating more than 90% of the body's energy, primarily in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) [1]. When ATP breaks down, it releases essential energy crucial for maintaining life and ensuring proper functioning of organs [2].

Just 1% faster. Just 1% stronger. These are the kinds of gains elite athletes strive for to be just .01 second faster than their competition. But even if you are just a weekend warrior trying to not get injured in this week's softball game, the better tuned your internal metabolic system is at making energy, the faster, stronger, and less prone to injury you will be too.
How to Destroy (or Enhance) Mitochondrial Function

Mitochondria are absolutely vital to maintaining and optimizing health. When they work well, we feel well, and when they don’t, we don’t. Symptoms of mitochondrial dysfunction can vary from fatigue and brain fog to the obliteration of the electron transport chain from cyanide poisoning and death. Ouch!
Eight Ways to Optimize Mitochondrial Function and Energy Production

Each mitochondria within the cell serves as a hub of aerobic respiration or the conversion of fats and carbohydrates into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the energy currency of life. This ATP is then distributed throughout the cell to be used in a diverse range of metabolic processes.
