Cellular health supplements can be important factors in ones daily vitamin intake or another’s health product line. This process changes with age but does come more important for older people. I’m going to explore the process as well as provide insight for supplementation/formula inclusion.
Mitochondria transforms the chemical energy in our food into a form the cells might use as an energy source. Most of the energy is created inside the cell membrane. During this process, a chemical known as NADH is used by enzymes in the cristae to produce ATP. Chemical bonds in ATP molecules retain energy. When these chemical bonds are disrupted, energy can be used.
Cell death, also known as apoptosis, is an essential element of body function. Mitochondria plays a role in determining which cells are to be dead during apoptosis. Cells are wiped out and removed as they become old or damaged. Mitochondria produces cytochrome C, which triggers caspase, one of the main enzymes involved in cell death during apoptosis (1).
Mitochondria also acts as a storage house for calcium. Calcium is the human body’s essential element required for various biological activities. Calcium is reintroduced into a cell that can trigger the transmission of a neuron from the nerve system to the endocrine cell. Mitochondria make it possible to quickly gather calcium particles and keep them stored until the body needs them.
How to Boost Mitochondria Naturally?
Research shows that skipping breakfast promotes mitochondria by removing damaged mitochondria and introducing new mitochondria synthesis. Another study shows that excessive carbohydrate consumption can significantly alter mitochondria’s structure and operation, especially in some brain cells.
Omega-3 fatty acids and alpha-lipoic fat increase breathing enzymes, which enhance mitochondrial function. Furthermore, grapes, red wine, and dark chocolate are healthy for increasing mitochondrial activity (2).
It has been demonstrated that heat therapy, like sauna, increases the effectiveness of mitochondria. Lastly, exercises that include aerobic activity, weightlifting, core work, stretches, and balance drills are all critical for maintaining the mitochondria’s Krebs cycle.
What Ingredients can help boost Mitochondria?
Mitochondria are responsible for providing the energy that cause biochemical reactions in cells and because of this is can be beneficial to support this process with supplementation. These ingredients are readily available at JW Nutritional to be properly formulated into your next production run: L-glutamine, acetyl-L-Carnitine, N-acetyl-cysteine, R+ lipoic acid, alpha-lipoic acid, L-phenylalanine, L-tyrosine, Coenzyme Q10, L-Carnitine, and Benfotiamine.
