EPISODE 310: Mitochondria: Key to Health and Longevity
If you go to any convenient store, you’ll see dozens of “energy” products including bars, drinks, and snacks. Most products are loaded with sugar or caffeine—or both. In the short term, they’ll certainly give you energy, but in the long term, they send you spiraling down. High energy is at the cornerstone of health, but we often neglect the very root source of energy—our cellular energy created by the mitochondria. On this week’s, Yoga Talk Show, you’ll learn how cellular energy can be pivotal for full-body health and wellness.
What You’ll Learn:
- Why these organelle produce ATP which is energy at the cellular level
- How your lifestyle can impact your mitochondria
- Why excessive eating creates reactive oxygen species (ROS) and depletes energy
- Why fat is 15x more efficient than sugar at creating cellular energy
- 4 supplements to boost mitochondria: L-Carnatine, CoQ10, D-ribose, magnesium
- Why low mitochondria can impact fertility
