Sample text:

Every cell in your body needs a continuous supply of energy. Mitochondria are organelles that produce energy for your cells. Cells that are metabolically active—such as those found in the brain, liver, heart, kidneys, and muscles—have more mitochondria than others.

In the process of generating energy for the cells, your mitochondria also produce a form of free radicals called reactive oxygen species (ROS). Free radicals are molecules that contain oxygen atoms with an odd number of electrons. Because of the unpaired electrons, free radicals are highly unstable. Under normal conditions, free radicals play many valuable roles in your body to regulate cellular functions. However, excessive free radicals can start a chain reaction that can damage your DNA. They react with cellular components, making the cell membranes brittle and leaky, leading to tissue degradation, which increases your risk of cancer and other chronic diseases.

A popular approach to reduce free radicals is to load your body with antioxidant supplements. But this approach can backfire when the antioxidants also suppress the important functions of free radicals. A better solution is to produce fewer free radicals in the first place. The Mitochondrial Metabolic Therapy helps you regain your body’s ability to burn fat as your primary fuel. By switching to a diet high in quality fat and low in carbohydrate, you will burn fat for fuel which produces 30 to 40 percent fewer free radicals than when you eat primarily carbohydrates.
