Power Your Engine

Our bodies are made up of cells and our cells are powered by little energy factories, which help fuel all our life's activities

These energy factories are called mitochondria.
Researchers regard aging as a kind of mitochondrial disease. Defective mitochondria appear as we get older, robbing us of endurance, strength and function.
Exercise may be a kind of "fountain of youth," combating the ravages of aging far more than researchers previously realized. Scientists believe that exercise has the potential to extend youthfulness for most of us. While it may not extend our life span, many believe exercise can sustain one’s good health for six or seven years.
To increase the effectiveness of your "power plants," try eating more organic fruits and veggies. This will load you up on antioxidants to keep your engines running at peak performance.
