Exercise—interval training increases the efficiency and function of the mitochondria and strength training increases the amount of muscle and number of mitochondria.
Eat whole real, colorful plant food—8-12 servings of fresh vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts, seeds, and whole grains every day, they are full of antioxidants and phytonutrients.
Take mitochondria protective and energy boosting nutrients such as acetyl-L-carnitine, alpha lipoic acid, coenzyme Q10, n-acetyl-cysteine, NADH, D-ribose, resveratrol, and magnesium aspartate.
Increase omega-3 fats to help build your mitochondrial membranes.
