Mitochondria as the link between intelligence, health and aging?

Mitochondria as the link between intelligence, health and aging? 🧠🦠

Mitochondria are the “powerhouse” of the cell, responsible for producing energy for the cell, among other functions. ⚡️ Energy availability, in turn, is the lowest common denominator needed for the development, maintenance, and optimal functioning of all biological systems. This study aims to review the relationship between intelligence, health and aging and show how the efficiency of mitochondrial functioning can link them together.
