Mitochondria

The mitochondria are bean-shaped cell organelles that function as power centers of a cell. The number of mitochondria per cell varies. The more active the cell is, the more mitochondria it contains. Energy synthesis takes place in the mitochondria. Sugars, fats and proteins are burned with oxygen and in return, energy is released.

ATP production

Mitochondria are found in almost all cells of the human body, except for red blood cells. The main functions of mitochondria are ATP production through respiration and the regulation of cellular metabolism. In addition to the chemical reactions for ATP production, oxidative phosphorylation and the citric acid cycle, the mitochondria have many other functions.

 

Supplements: CoQ10 and Ubiquinol

The main function of mitochondria is thus making energy and sometimes the body can use some help with this. Co-enzyme Q10 is a body-specific substance that is produced in the liver. Q10 helps enzymes in making ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is a molecule in which the body stores its energy supply. In addition to supplements with Q10, you will also find supplements containing the active substance ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is a form of coenzyme Q10 and works better than regular Q10 tablets.
