About ATP and Mitochondria
ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is a high energy molecule in cells. It is generated within the mitochondria. ATP is composed of adenosine (an adenine ring and a ribose sugar) and three phosphate groups. When in use ATP is broken down to ADP (adenosine diphosphate) to provide energy. Energy from the breakdown of ATP drives many important reactions in the cell. This means that ATP needs to be constantly produced especially during exercise.
Mitochondria are tiny organelles found in every cell in the body. They are known as the "powerhouse of the cell" and are responsible for creating more than 90% of cellular energy. Mitochondria are necessary in the body to sustain life and support growth. They are composed of tiny packages of enzymes that turn nutrients into cellular energy. Mitochondrial failure causes cell injury that leads to cell death. When multiple organ cells die there is organ failure. In adults, many challenges associated with aging have been found to have defects of mitochondrial function.*
