Four Reasons Why Mitochondria Are Involved in Weight Gain

May 27, 2019 Puzzle Piece
Mitochondria are vital cellular organelles that generate and maintain proper energy levels in complex organisms. This energy is tied to fat burn and maintaining a healthy weight. If you are one of the many who can’t shed a single pound, no matter what you do, take a look at your mitochondrial integrity.
Researchers are exploring the idea that obesity may be caused at the cellular level, specifically in the organelle mitochondria.
How Mitochondria Influence Your Weight:
  • Appetite regulation
  • Promote feelings of fullness
  • Energy consumption
“Yale research team studied mitochondria in different populations of brain cells known to be involved in the regulation of appetite. The team found that during the transition from a fasting to an over-fed state, mitochondria in neurons, that promote hunger, show dynamic changes that are the opposite of those found in neurons that control feelings of fullness,” reported Karen N. Peart of Yale University.
“We’ve found that mitochondrion need to have ongoing dynamic plasticity in order to support neurons, which are necessary for appetite control and for the maintenance of life,” said lead author Tamas Horvath, Jean and David W. Wallace, Professors of Biomedical Research and chairs of comparative medicine at the Yale School of Medicine.
It was reported in the Juvenon Health Journal that, “A growing body of research is demonstrating that altered mitochondrial energy production, particularly in skeletal muscles, is a major anomaly capable of setting off a chain of metabolic events leading to obesity.”
The signs are basically nonexistent when you’re young, which is why teenagers are generally enviously skinny. At least they used to be before intake of so much sugar and artificial sweeteners. However, all good things come to an end. Aging and eating junk food takes its toll on your body, including and especially mitochondria. These worn out organelles get selective about energy sources, meaning you pack on the pounds, unless you do something to revitalize your mitochondria.
Why Obese People Struggle to Lose Weight:
  1. They have fewer mitochondria
  2. They have smaller mitochondria
  3. Their mitochondria have structural problems or have even have degenerated completely
  4. Their mitochondria have reduced oxidative activity
These signs are currently known as mitochondrial dysfunction. Pile that on top of a sedentary lifestyle and excess calories, especially carbohydrates, and your mitochondria are either growing lazy or calling it quits.
While the essence of weight loss and management is quality calories in, calories out, the math won’t add up if your mitochondria aren’t doing their job. All your food intended for energy burn is getting stored as fat. To make things worse, unhealthy mitochondria, while they are trying to make energy for you, actually release free radicals that cause inflammation.
When diet and exercise alone aren’t the solution, it’s time to reach for nutrients that increase mitochondria in numbers and vitality.
Opti-Mito-Force is an incredible formulation for your mitochondria:


The primary molecule in the body that stimulates growth of mitochondria and is activated by exercise is believed to be PGC-1alpha, also called “The Exercise Molecule.”
The latest nutraceutical in mitochondrial bioenergetics is the coenzyme PQQ (pyrroloquinoline quinone). It supports mitochondria function and activity. Opti-Mito-Force contains PQQ in the most potent form. It also contains pine bark, grape seed and grape skin that increase antioxidant capacity and provides extraordinary defense against damage from oxidants, as well as stimulates the growth of new mitochondria. This formula also contains superoxide dismutase, which adds building blocks that help your body create more powerful antioxidants on its own.
This formula contains an array of vitamins and minerals, from whole food, Non GMO sources that no other formulas have. This gives you a superior product that has scientifically proven nutrients your body needs to help your mitochondria heal, repair and increase activity. The most powerful nutrient is PQQ, but including ALA, B vitamins, trace minerals and the other synergistic ingredients previously listed, creates an incredible product that the cells can absorb and utilize quickly.
Opti-Mito-Force, with the proven predigested nutrients, helps to revive your mitochondria. This may be the push your body needs to properly burn fat and maintain a healthy weight, hopefully giving you a slim, healthy waistline.
