Amazing mitochondria: More than just cellular powerhouses

Mitochondria are known as the powerhouses of our cells due to their high energy generating capacity in the form of adenine triphosphate(ATP).  In fact, 90% of the ATP generated in our body is made in the mitochondria via the Krebs cycle and electron transport chain. Cell types vary in their number of mitochondria, typically based … Continue reading Amazing mitochondria: More than just cellular powerhouses

Trying to increase bile output? This is your first step…gallbladder or not
