Mitochondria are self-replicating organelles that occur in various numbers, shapes, and sizes in the cytoplasm of all eukaryotic cells. Respiration occurs in the cell mitochondria, which generate the cell’s energy by oxidative phosphorylation, using oxygen to release energy stored in cellular nutrients to generate ATP. Mitochondria multiply by “division in half”, which is the division of a single entity into two or more parts and the regeneration of those parts into separate entities resembling the original. I know it may seem complex but if we had truly understood this by high school we would not have so many people with cancer now a days.
“Unlike the other components inside each of your cells, your mitochondria have their own DNA. And considering some of your cells can contain as many as 2,500 mitochondria, that’s a lot of genetic material!
Having their own DNA means your mitochondria have the ability to replicate and increase their numbers inside each of your cells… but
Your mitochondrial DNA doesn’t have the same structural defenses and repair systems as your cellular DNA. So the genetic material in your mitochondria mutates at a much faster pace and accumulates in your body as you age.” Read the full impressive article written by Dr Mercola HERE.
Diet is BY FAR the BIGGEST factor that influence the health of your mitochondria.
If you have problem to sleep, try feeding your mitochondria well. The return is immediate.
