Mitochondrial Health | Austin, TX

Mitochondria are cellular structures responsible for producing energy in the form of ATP throughout the body. They play a vital role in various metabolic processes and are essential for maintaining proper cellular function and preventing diseases. However, as we age, the number and function of mitochondria can decline, leading to symptoms and age-related diseases.

Symptoms related to mitochondrial dysfunction include muscle weakness, exercise intolerance, neurological symptoms, weight gain, gastrointestinal and cardiac problems, respiratory issues, endocrine disorders, and renal problems.

Maintaining healthy mitochondria function is crucial for overall optimal health and by incorporating healthy habits such as exercise, proper nutrition, and avoiding toxins, we can enhance our body’s energy production, reduce the risk of chronic diseases, and improve our overall quality of life.
