In: Mitochondrial

Mitochondria are the energy producers of human cells. The energy currency for the work that is required to power up metabolism by producing the energy-rich molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The ATP is produced in the mitochondria using energy stored in the food that is consumed. These ATP's are essential in keeping every step of metabolism in equilibrium which in turn effects every system of the human body including immunity, detoxification, hormones, brain neurotransmitters, etc. Genetic testing to determine metabolic efficiency in chronic health concerns is essential. Also essential in conditions like OCD, ADHD, ASD (Autism), Fatigue, Immune Related Fatigue, Chronic...
There are hundreds of mitochondria within human cells and it is crucial to protect the mitochondria from age-related stress and oxidative burden in order to prevent functional disease and aging risk. These mitochondria are power generators that are responsible for the cell grid. If they are compromised the functional performance survival of the cell is jeopardized complete loss can result. Each mitochondria carries its own small circular DNA genome, called mtDNA, the products of which are required for energy production. Because mtDNA has limited repair abilities, normal and mutant versions of mtDNA are often found in the same cell, a condition...
