Mitochondrial decline is the second biomechanical effect of aging. Mitochondria are the power source found in the cells of every complex organism. They produce about 90% of the chemical energy that cells need to survive. As we age our mitochondrial decline, and our cells lose power. You need this power for organs to work efficiently, to think clearly and for the body systems to work effectively. When your cells have sufficient cellular energy to do their job effectively, you feel better and live longer.
