Mitochondria is part of the cell that functions as a producer of energy in the form of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). The role of ATP or cellular energy is very important for the body and is needed by organs in order to enforce their duties. For instance, the heart requires energy in order to pump blood throughout the body.
Mitochondria are typically elliptical in shape with a range in size of 0.5 - 10 μm and consist of several parts that each have their own functions, such as:
1. Mitochondrial outer membrane acts to limit the mitochondria with the cytoplasm
2. The inner membrane of the mitochondria is folded (cristae). This crista is the site for the production of ATP or cellular energy
3. The space among membranes is the place where the reactions that are important for the cell continue
4. Matrix that contains water, DNA, and enzymes that play a role in various reaction processes in the body
Oxidative stress is suspected to be one of the triggers for the mitochondrial function to be declining. One of the causes of oxidative stress is severe inflammation due to viral infection. Declining mitochondrial function can lead to decreasing production of ATP or cellular energy, which can lead to organ dysfunction. If there is a decline in mitochondrial function in pancreatic β cells that cause diabetes mellitus, in neuromuscular cells which cause dementia, in kidney cells which cause kidney disorders, and various disorders in other organs.
The combined components of several products from Biotek Farmasi Indonesia have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory characteristics, they can also increase cellular energy/ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) thus they can help maintain the body's immunity against diseases. Products from Biotek Farmasi Indonesia are originator products, not imitating existing ones. They were developed based on years of research.
