What can you do if your energy is not what it used to be? An intelligent person will ask themselves a series of questions. Is it old age? Is it a health issue? Diet? Lack of exercise? Or is it damaged Mitochondria? What? Mitochondria? What is that? More to come.
Frankly, none of us are going to have the energy we had when we were a teenager. But there is something you can always do to increase energy. The first thing is to always consult your physician. If there is no medical issue such as pulmonary or coronary issue and you are not overweight, you have a nutritious diet and you exercise, it could be a malfunction of those microscopic energy factories called Mitochondria.
In fact, damaged Mitochondria will always be a part of an energy deficit. The reason is that Mitochondria are under a constant damaging assault 24/7. Here are the inside facts. Mitochondria under a very powerful microscope look like seaweed. Oxygen and glucose float among them. When oxygen and glucose come together, a spark of energy is generated. This spark is the energy that powers your heart, your brain, muscles and every cell in your body.
The only problem is that when this spark is emitted, it sometimes damages a part of the mitochondria. As a result, the Mitochondria do not generate the energy they used to. It gets even worse. Eventually the Mitochondria begins to die off which is a real energy drain! If you do not protect your Mitochondria this is the normal progression. As you age, you begin to slow down. As you reach your late 70’s or 80’s, you have a hard time getting out of a chair. Later, you begin to use a walker and eventually are placed in a wheelchair and eventually become bedridden! And when Mitochondria die off completely, if some disease hadn’t killed you, you will die from a lack of energy to power your organs.
So, what to do? For years it was known that Glutathione helped to protect Mitochondria. Read this article from the National Institutes of Health, “Antioxidants & Redox Signaling”. The best Glutathione Accelerator, Original Glutathione Formula (OGF), was developed by the renowned Dr. Robert Keller. So, what do you do if you’re in your 50’s, 60’s, 70’s or later and your Mitochondria have already been damaged?
Recently, a miracle substance called Pyrroloquinoline Quinone (PQQ) was found that not only protects Mitochondria but regenerates Mitochondria. Read this article from LEF.org, “Generate Fresh Mitochondria with PQQ”. What that means is that you can recapture youthful vitality by taking this supplement. Wonderful, isn’t it?
