The human body is an extraordinary creation made up of between 50 and 100 trillion cells. Each one performing just the right function, in just the right place, at just the right time. Your cells themselves are amazing. Each one is a bustling metropolis of activity; a city that never sleeps. Every second of every day, your cells work tirelessly to keep your body healthy and strong.
One of the major functions of your cells is the production of fuel. This fuel, known as Adenosine triphosphate (ATP), is actually created by workers inside the cell called Mitochondria. Mitochondria are so vital and important that a single cell can have thousands of these little workers. In fact, it is estimated that half of the dry weight of the human body is made up of mitochondria.
Mitochondria do more than supply the body with the fuel it needs. They also play a key role in cell signaling and communication coordinating the actions and activities of your cells. When you think about it, this kind of signaling is essential for health and life since it is the foundation for things like cell development, tissue repair, and immune functions. Without the ability to communicate and coordinate the activities of cells, we would fall apart pretty quickly. The Mitochondria's role in this vital communication system lies in the fact that they make special molecules called Redox Signaling Molecules.
The Mitochondria make these molecules by the trillions every second of every day. Good thing too! Because without these Redox Signaling Molecules, life itself would be impossible. You need these molecules to protect the health of your cells, to detect threats and damage, and to repair or replace injured cells.
Unfortunately, as we get older, our ability to make Redox Signaling Molecules diminishes. Ever notice that bumps and bruises that disappear in no time on a child seem to last forever on someone who is elderly? The cells in that older person simply are not communicating as efficiently as they did when they were younger, and so cells and tissues take longer to repair themselves. And all because the body is not making as many Redox Signaling Molecules as it used to.
So, what can be done about this if anything? Is there a way to replenish these Redox Signaling Molecules or can we slow them from diminishing? This is what the podcast is all about.
