Mitochondria are the energy factories of the human cells that produce cellular energy through the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) cycle. The number of mitochondria in a cell varies widely by organism and by tissue type. A human cell can have from a few to several thousand mitochondria. A lack of optimal function of the mitochondria is one of the biggest causes for the loss of cellular vitality. Cells require healthy mitochondrial activity to perform life-sustaining metabolic processes. As mitochondrial function weakens in our cells, so does the vitality of organs, like heart and brain or, in some cases, the entire body.
In order for the mitochondria to create the energy needed to sustain cellular function, fatty acids, their fuel, must be transported through the cell membrane and into the mitochondria.Life Extension members now have access to a state-of-the-art nutritional formula called Mitochondrial Energy Optimiser with BioPQQ®. This product protects delicate cellular structures and enables cells to perform life-sustaining processes, as well as helps to generate new mitochondria.
