Slow down ageing: Mitochondria supplement 'improved both strength and cognition' in trials

Life & StyleSlow down ageing: Mitochondria supplement 'improved both strength and cognition' in trials


Dr Sekhar explains the main role of mitochondria: “The mitochondria need oxygen to burn fat and sugar to make energy. Oxygen is provided to mitochondria by the combined action of the lungs, heart, blood, and the vascular system, and fat and sugar by the gut, liver, and pancreas working together.

“The ultimate goal of all these organs working together is to provide mitochondria with oxygen and fuel.”

Subsequently, Dr Sekhar describes mitochondria as the most important organ in the body that can’t be seen.

Even though the results of trials on mice have just been released, trials on humans have already begun.
