In this post, we’ll delve into how optimizing your magnesium levels, an essential mineral that 56% of the U.S. population is deficient in, can help you maximize your mitochondria in order to enhance your performance.1 (Note: Magnesium can be tested by the WellnessFX Performance package.) Your mitochondria are what give you energy through the process of oxidative phosphorylation – the consumption of oxygen to generate ATP, the energetic currency of your cells. They supply fuel to every single type of cell in your body, from muscle to neuron, to keep your cells functioning at their best. Your mitochondrial health is strongly tied to your fitness both in terms of physical performance and even longevity. It is your mitochondria that provide nourishment during injury to speed up wound healing and recovery.
