  • Profe Claudio Nieto now talks about nutrition and what your mitochondria should eat.
  • Nutrition is a key part for your body to stay in good condition.
  • Here’s an explanation of the relationship between these two elements.

Mitochondria are small structures within our cells that play a crucial role in energy production and cellular health.

But, do you know how to properly feed them so that they function optimally? In this series, we will explore the importance of providing your mitochondria with the right nutrients.

It’s not just about providing calories to your mitochondria, but giving them quality nutrients. These tiny powerhouses require a variety of micronutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, coenzymes, and antioxidants, to perform their magic.

Without these essential nutrients, the mitochondria cannot function properly, which can lead to health problems.

Nutritional Density

Instead of focusing on the caloric or energy density of foods, you should look for nutritional density.

This means choosing foods rich in nutrients like vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and essential amino acids.

In summary, you should focus on consuming nutrients instead of counting calories and prioritize quality over quantity.

If you’re wondering what type of nutrients are the favorites of your mitochondria, we share some here.

The 6 Favorite Nutrients of Your Mitochondria

Coenzyme Q10: This enzyme is essential for the mitochondrial respiratory chain and cellular energy production.

It is found in fatty foods such as red meats, oily fish, turkey, and chicken, as well as in viscera like the heart and liver. It is also found in plant foods rich in chloroplasts, such as broccoli and spinach.

Essential Fatty Acids: Essential fatty acids, such as alpha-lipoic acid, are important for protecting mitochondria from inflammation-related damage.

They are found in foods like the heart, liver, broccoli, and spinach.

Minerals: Minerals, such as magnesium and potassium, are essential for preventing mitochondrial breakdown and premature aging. Find them in fruits, vegetables, and green leafy vegetables.

Group B Vitamins: These vitamins are crucial for efficient mitochondrial energy production. They are found in foods like green leafy vegetables, eggs, meat, fish, and dairy.

Creatine: This nutrient quickly regenerates spent ATP, providing energy to the mitochondria. It is found in meats like beef, ox, lamb, pork, chicken, fish, and more.

Carnitine: Helps free fatty acids cross the mitochondrial membrane for oxidation. Find it in meats like beef, pork, chicken, fish, and use acetyl L-carnitine for brain benefits.
