Why Don’t I Have Any Energy? All about your mitochondria

Why don't I have any energy? all about your mitochondria

Mitochondria are key energy sources for our bodies. They are tiny factories housed within our cells that take the foods we eat and the oxygen we breathe and convert them into energy. Each cell holds hundreds or thousands of mitochondria. They are found in greater concentrations in active organs and tissues like the heart, brain, and muscles. When mitochondria are damaged, we suffer from low energy, fatigue, memory loss, pain, rapid aging, and more. This is why caring for our mitochondria is so important. Taking care of your mitochondria can make you leaner and smarter. It can help prevent aging and increase your energy.

Tired all the time? It could be your Mitochondria.

Tired all the time? It could be your Mitochondria.

Do you remember your high school biology class when you learned about the structure of the animal cell? Do you recall the sausage-looking organelles in the cytoplasm called the mitochondria (singular mitochondrion)? They are responsible for the conversion of food to usable energy in the form of ATP. The mitochondria are called the “powerhouses of the cell”.

(Can you tell I was once a high school science teacher? I worked for several years after college as a high school science, math, and French teacher in Toronto Canada before moving to New York City for my graduate studies. I loved taking what were very boring subjects and transforming them into fascinating classes for my students. Taking complex material and making it easy to understand is actually what I try my best to do at Hypothyroid Mom. My hope is that I make the science of thyroid disease easy for everyone to understand.)

Are you tired? It could be your mitochondria.

I bet you had no idea that your high school biology class would actually become something very useful to you! It could explain why you are so darn tired all the time.
