About SENS Mitochondrion
The history of how mitochondria came to be is one of friendship.
Billions of years ago, something extraordinary happened: a tiny cell entered a large one, and two cells became one.
The smaller cell, now known as a mitochondrion, assumed the role of a power plant, producing all the energy that the large cell needed to become better and stronger.
This friendship continues today—the mitochondrion is the powerhouse of the cell, with its main job being to convert food into energy.
Unlike other parts of the cell, mitochondria have genes of their own. As we age, some of these genes get damaged, causing mayhem in the originating cell and wreaking havoc all over the place.
In contrast to old-school mitochondria, SENS Mitochondria come equipped with backup copies of critical genes—making them into superheroes of the cell.
SENS Mitochondria will continue working even if they are damaged, preserving cell function and preventing the harm to the rest of the body.
