Omega 6 busts your electron transport chain

The mitochondria, also called the “powerhouse” of the cells, is where ATP is made. Cells use fats, carbohydrates and sometimes a little protein to create energy. These macronutrients are broken down in the cell to provide electrons for the electron transport chain, creating a mitochondrial membrane potential (Δψm). Complex I, III, & IV, powered by […]

Polyunsaturated fats, cardiolipin and ATP production

From the previous article: “the rate of substrate oxidation in resting muscle is not determined/limited by mitochondrial oxidative capacity, but by the rate of ATP breakdown/ADP formation, which is regulated by the cells’ need for energy” The mitochondria can only make ATP if there is ADP and a phosphate present. The complex V in the […]
