How to improve your mitochondria function to work correctly.

Hello, readers and friends,
Welcome to

What is the purpose of my article today?

How To Improve Mitochondria Function


I want to talk with you about the importance of your mitochondria function, why mitochondria are essential to life?.

How can you slow down the aging process?

Seriously, I guess like many of you; I’m concern about aging too fast.

I know that I can’t stop the biological clock when it comes to aging.
But what I know you can prevent to slow down, and age in the healthiest way.

Important to realize, your eating habits will determine the function or dysfunction of the “Powerhouse of the cell.”

Let’s look further about the function of mitochondria.

Firstly, I’m sure you’re wondering what mitochondria is, right?

In fact mitochondria, in simple words, are known as the “Powerhouses of cells.”
They are organelles that act like a digestive system.
Which takes in nutrients, breaks them down, and creates energy-rich molecules for the cell.
The biochemical processes of the cell are known as cellular respiration.



But, why do I need mitochondria?

That is the big question because they are primarily responsible for converting the air you breathe and the food you eat into energy.

That your cells can use to grow, divide and function.
That’s the WHY it is important to realize to understand the need for proper nutrient you give to your body.

Mitochondria produce energy into a chemical called ATP.

Where are mitochondria found?

Typically mitochondria are found in your body’s cells.



What is the leading cause of aging? Everyone wants to know, right?

Scientist says

The dysfunction of mitochondrial is a significant cause of aging due to the vital role of mitochondria in your cells.

(Cellular respiration ATP production)
Or Adenosine Triphosphate is the primary energy carrier in all living organisms on earth.

When the cell requires energy, ATP is broken down through hydrolysis.
Then you have the trouble of dysfunction.



Therefore dysfunction cause damage to the DNA in your cells, predisposing to cancer and other diseases.

One of these mechanisms is involved in cellular aging.
For this reason, it is crucial to help the mitochondrial function adequately.

How To Improve Mitochondria Function?

Firstly, quit overeating sugar, because of the sugar as you might know already is mostly considered as unhealthy and damage your cells.


  • Eat the rainbow
  • Have a cup of bone broth
  • Take your Omega-3


  • Also, eat healthy fats.

How can I stop aging at 40?

If you want to live longer, then eat more antioxidant-rich foods such as:

  • Prefer extra olive oil than other poor quality oils.
  • Low fat, organic yogurt is one my favorites as well.
  • Choose fish that’s high in Omega-3 and have it steamed, grilled, broil, baked or poached.

As an illustration:

  • Sardines, wild salmon, Atlantic mackerel Tuna, Sea bass, etc.


  • Chocolate. dark chocolate, better for you
  • Nuts
  • Blueberries
  • Red wine in moderation.

You can seriously slow the process aging by eating more antioxidants foods.
For instance:

  • Red bell pepper, (because they are full with antioxidants.)
  • Papayas
  • Blueberries
  • Broccoli
  • Spinach nuts
  • Watercress

The health benefits of watercress are amazingly so good for you, and you know why?

Not only is a powerhouse vegetable that packs several nutrients but is extremely low in calories, a good source of minerals that protect your bones as your cells.

Let’s talk about the importance of wrinkles, that nobody wants to have I guess.

Starting with the kind of food you’ll need to avoid, or you should limit because this will cause you to have wrinkles.

One of the worst of things you can do is continually eat these:



  • Doughnuts and sugary pastries, because they’re full of sugar.
  • Hot dog not better!
  • Bacon, very high in Saturated fats!
  • Pepperoni, same high in saturated fats
  • Processed meats to avoid as well ( or limit to eat these often)

In general, this kind of nutrients has a lot of nitrates in them.

On the negative side, what nitrate do to the human?

To demonstrate, in fact, eating the preservative sodium in massive doses, which changes to nitrite in your body.

Consequently, It can damage the cells and also transform into molecules that cause cancer.

For this reason, emphasize your intake nutrients if you want to look younger.

Think of the healthiest fats on earth.

  1. Extra virgin olive oil, raw is better for you.


  2. Green tea, so high in antioxidants which can protect against free radicals.

Do you know what free radicals are?

I will try to explain most simply for you to understand because we are talking here about the impaired electron.

In short, free radicals contain an impaired electron, are atoms that include one or more unpaired electrons.
Electrons like to be in pairs, so these atoms, scavenge the body to seek out other particles.
So they become a pair as a result to causes damage to cells protein and DNA.

How do I get rid of free radicals in my body?

Best for you is to eliminate toxins that cause free-radicals and add more antioxidants that fight free-radicals to your diet.

a) Eat foods with high antioxidants.
b) Buy organic produce to avoid toxic pesticides.
c) Eat mostly organic or local grass-fed meat.

Here the list of foods that fight free-radicals.

1- Whole cereal
2- At least have six portions of vegetables and fruits every day.


3- Raw vegetable oil, such as olive oil
4- Adequate cooking, I mean lightly cooked.
5- Prefer fish than meat.
6- Red wine is better than white, a glass day at every meal.                                                                                                                            7- Tea and coffee.

Keep in mind that the free radical content is high in nutrient-poor meals and those deficient of antioxidants.

Therefore, avoid or limit high glycemic foods, or foods that are rich in refined carbohydrates and sugars.

How can I stop my face from aging naturally?

For instance, here are some tips for you to reduce premature skin aging.
1- Protect your skin from the sun every day.
2- Apply self-tanner, sunless tanning products.
3- use natural lotions, creams, and sprays, you directly apply to your skin.
These will gives your skin a tanned look without exposing it to harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.

  • If you smoke, try to stop smoking
  • Avoid repetitive facial expressions
  • Eat a healthy well-balanced diet
  • Drink less alcohol.

What is the best anti-age supplement for me?

Some people claim that the following may work.

  • Heliocare skin cares dietary supplements.
  • Zinc, EZ melts zinc for immune support
  • Best Q10 Doctor’s high absorption.
  • COQ 10 with Bioperine.
  • Collagen peptides
  • Vitamin C

Does vitamin E help reduce wrinkles?

New Laboratory studies suggest vitamin E helps inactivate free radicals making them less likely to cause damage.


What is the dosage to take?

At the present time recommendation, vitamin E intake is 400 milligrams a day for you.
That may reduce photodamage wrinkles and improve skin texture.

Can I use E capsules on my face?

In my opinion, you can use capsules directly to the skin, but be sure to ask your esthetician before to be sure you do the right thing.
Vitamin E is often used to promote smooth, hydrated skin.

By applying vitamin E, it can help soothe burns, and it even is smoothed to stretch marks and scars to dimish their appearance.

Again, ask your esthetician. But for me, it works in that way. I do use vitamin E oil daily to sooth my skin and look healthy and young.

How can I apply vitamin E?

Since vitamin E oil can be thick and sticky, you may want to use a brush or tissue instead of applying it with your fingers.

How long should I leave vitamin E on my face?
You can leave it for about thirty minutes or even a bit longer if you wish.

Which vitamin is E best for me?
I’m sure you will love to try Alpha-Tocopherol is the best-known form of vitamin E.

Can I take vitamin E capsules daily?
Yes, however, the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for vitamin E is 15 milligrams a day.

At this time, The American Heart Association discourages the use of High dose vitamin E supplements and promotes obtaining it from food sources.

The Foods and Drugs Administration (FDA) regulates dietary supplements as foods, not as drugs.


How does vitamin E help my body?

The main reason that vitamin E help your body is that of is fat-soluble nutrient found in many foods.
In the body, it acts as an antioxidant helping to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals.


For those of you looking to optimize both quality and duration of life.
Protecting your mitochondrial function is a must. Because mitochondria are the power plants in your cells that give you energy day-to-day.
Optimize nutrient status to limit oxygen and high-energy electron leakage in the ETC.
Decrease toxin exposure, provide nutrients that protect the mitochondria from oxidative stress.
Finally, utilize nutrients that facilitate mitochondrial ATP product.
