The key to unlocking a healthier, longer life may lie deep within our cells, in the mitochondria. Mitochondria are not just energy producers; they are central to signaling, cellular differentiation, and even cell death. Dysfunctional mitochondria are linked to a host of metabolic disorders, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases, and is one of the key hallmarks of the aging process.
