Mitochondria are tiny double membrane organelles that produce ATP (the energy currency of the cell), through respiration, and to regulate cellular metabolism. Red blood cells and skin cells have very little to none, while germ cells have 100,000, but most cells have one to 2,000 mitochondria in them. They’re the primary source of energy production for your body.
Since mitochondrial function is at the very heart of everything that occurs in your body, optimizing mitochondrial function is extremely important for health and disease prevention.
For example, one of the universal characteristics of cancer cells is they have serious mitochondrial dysfunction with radically decreased numbers of functional mitochondria. While the mitochondria can still function in cancer cells, cancer cells become dependent on glucose instead of ATP (the Warburg effect) and the mitochondria is shut down

This happens because your body will up-regulate the synthesis and repair of bones, ligaments and joints. Excessive calcium can lead to arterial calcification, but vitamin K2 reduces this buildup by increasing absorption where is needed. In other words, vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 work synergistically with each other to heal the body.
