1. Great article. Well thought out and clear to understand for even those of us who are not well versed in this topic. Sugar seems to always be the culprit in most diseases but It is so delicious!

    • Thank you for your kind words. Yes, sugar is one of the biggest problems with our food. The food industry relies on our sugar addition to make us buy more. I will write an article about sugar soon, so stay tuned.

  2. Hi there, I find this topic really fascinating. I have some issues related to energy output a d I always find that exercise makes me feel much better, it seems to for whatever reason kick-start my mitochondria.
    I never knew that mitochondria have their own dna, or that they can communicate with gut bacteria wow! I noticed you said that mitochondria are linked with our Metabolism, there has been some significant research in the field of Probiotics for weight loss so I suppose if our bacteria in our gut can communicate with our mitochondria that makes a lot of sense!

    • Hi Natalie!
      Exercising is a great way to jumpstart them. Studies show that the best time of the day for exercise is early in the morning – not only it will give you energy for the whole day, but you will sleep a lot better at night. Even 4 minutes of cardio in the morning can do wonders. As a dancer, you exercise a lot more every day, but you can try the 4 minutes session after waking up.

  3. Best article ever, I love studying scientific evidence, this artthas come at a right time for me. In ndeed mitochondria is very important in our body. We different from one another because of it. When we look at cancer new treatment direction, it is branching towards the use of mitochondria.

    Thank you for such an important work.

    • Thank you Elliot!
      Indeed, mitochondria have an important role in combating cancer. We have cancer cells all the time in our bodies (due to mutations), and they are responsible for discarding them. When they fail to do that promptly, these cells multiply and things go very wrong.

  4. Wow, so many information! I found it very interesting and I learned a lot from your post. I try as much as possible to keep an healthy lifestyle so that my body (and my mitochondria) keeps working well!
    Thank you for sharing this information with us, I loved it. 🙂
