Virtually all of the energy that powers virtually all the trillions of cells in your body comes from your mitochondria.
The energy your mitochondria produce naturally decreases over time, reducing your health and longevity — and ultimately, causing fatigue.
On top of that, stressors in our life — from psychological stress, to environmental toxins (like heavy metals and air pollutants), to a poor diet, to poor gut health, to chronic inflammation — all-cause mitochondrial damage, dysfunction and shut down (they shift out of energy mode into a cell protection response).
Research is now showing that these three things — the loss of mitochondria, the damage/dysfunction of mitochondria, and the shut down of mitochondria — are the primary factors that drive low energy levels.
In other words, if you’ve got low energy levels, it likely simply means that your mitochondria have become weak, damaged, dysfunctional, and switched off over time.
Here’s the spectrum of energy, so you can visualize where you are on this continuum.
