Mitochondria – The Cell Powerhouses You Need To Know About

Introducing the Mitochondria

Diseases such as Diabetes and Cardiovascular disease are the leading drivers of death worldwide. 

Diet and lifestyle choices are primarily responsible for the onset of these diseases, especially a diet high in acidic foods such as meat, dairy and processed foods and low in alkaline foods such as fruits and vegetables. 

A recent Japanese study found that these causes of death are directly linked to the body being acidic. 

This backs up Otto Warburgs nobel prize-winning study in 1931 proving that cancer is an acidic disease. 

Acidity has also been linked to high triglycerides and LDL cholesterol, obesity, and insulin resistance to name a few. 

How This Works 

The energy production unit within every cell is called the mitochondria. 

They are the power plants of the cell. 

There are about 50 trillion cells in the body. 

We cannot even see one of these cells without a microscope. 

Inside each of these cells there can be over 7,000 mitochondria.

Imagine how small these things are! 

These mitochondria are pH dependant. 

They must be in a neutral p/H otherwise they cannot function correctly.  

An increasing number of studies are shedding light on the role of mitochondrial dysfunction in conditions such as schizophrenia, bipolar, dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, migraines, epilepsy, stoke, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.

Damage to these important little engines can lead to DNA damage, cell death and premature ageing.

The Two Major Functions of The Mitochondria Are:

This function has been known for decades ….. it was discovered in 1929. 

The mitochondria converts food and oxygen into ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). 

ATP is known as the “energy currency of the cell’; they give our cells energy to do their job. 

When mitochondria become inefficient at producing energy you feel fatigue, brain fog, mood changes, and as lactic acid accumulates in tissue you feel pain and stiffness. 

When damage is severe, cells die.

The second function has only been known since 1998, therefore you may not have heard about it. 

The second important function is the regulation and maintenance of redox homeostasis. 

These vital molecules help with the following . . .

  • Redox Signaling molecules are vital to the immune system and to cellular health mechanisms. 
  • A proper supply of Redox Signaling molecules enables the normal cellular health process: damaged, dysfunctional cells fading away and healthy, vibrant cells taking over. 
  • They are the communication centres within your cells, sending powerful messages that help rejuvenate, restore, and protect cells. 
  • Redox molecules signal when something is going wrong or needs to be changed, and then the body fixes the problem.
  • Redox Signaling molecules are so essential to life that without them, you would die within seconds.

If the body is acidic, the mitochondria cannot function properly which means they will not be able to produce ATP or Redox Signaling Molecules, gravely impacting your health.  

Step #1 in my 3 Step Process to Ultimate Health is about being Alkaline

In the next article we will discuss Mitochondrial Dysfunction, how this shows up in the body and what foods and lifestyles changes we can make to improve the function of these super cells.
