Mitochondria – you’ve probably never really heard of it, have you? Some guys still know the term from the biology lessons from earlier school days. Mitochondria are the ultimate power plants in our body cells. Without them, actually nothing in the body works, because they produce our energy!
Mitochondria are so-called cell organelles – which means they are found as components in all our body cells – well, except for our red blood cells (the so-called erythrocytes). Each body has over 80 trillion body cells and in each of these cells there is not only one mitochondria, but 1,500 to 4,000 mitochondria! Madness, right?!
Our mitochondria produce energy as ATP. Some people have heard this somewhere before and reminds it. ATP, the adenosine triphosphate is the one-and-only energy supplier in our body to keep all organs, all metabolic processes running and supply energy.
Let it melt on the tongue – Everything in the body needs and consumes ATP – energy. Our liver, our kidneys, our thyroid gland, our intestines, our hormonal system, the immune system, the mucous membranes, the ovaries, uterus, prostate, adrenal glands, our heart, our sensory organs – simply everything needs and consumes ATP.
So if you look at it closely, the mitochondria are the basis, the core core of any disease and also any recovery process. If we are in a bad position here, then we get complaints in many places in the body. If we ignore the mitochondria in our therapy….it will be difficult to actually get healthy and stay healthy in the core.
Without energy, nothing works in the body! So I think we should thank our mitochondria every day for the ingenious hard work they do to keep us alive.
The cells with the highest mitochondria number are found in our heart,our muscles,our nervous system and in our sensory organs. So if you have bad habitudes with your mitochondria, complaints like to occur first in these areas. However, this does not necessarily have to be the case.
