What are mitochondria?

Your body uses food as fuel to generate the energy that powers your body. Ninety-five percent of that energy is produced inside your cells by structures called mitochondria. The more mitochondria you have, the faster and more easily you can generate energy to power everything your body does. Including burning fat, building muscle, fighting infection, recovering from injury, thinking, talking, dancing, working, refurbishing the body during sleep…well, you get the picture.
