ATP (Mg-ATP): see discussion of the mitochondrion below.

Mitochondria: are microorganisms within the cells responsible for the production of the body’s energy molecule, ATP.


A body in peak health has about 10,000 mitochondria per cell and the more ATP the body can produce, the more energy available for anabolism and regeneration.

However, there is a catch; and very few people [regardless of their credentials] know that without bio-active magnesium ions, the ATP molecule is useless.

Specifically, magnesium ions are needed to convert ATP into Mg-ATP which is  biologically active and useful form of ATP.  To learn more, Read Special Insights, Bio-Friendly Iodine & Perpetual Health in the Archive Link above/below.

For the transformation to occur, the body must have sufficient magnesium ions in storage and readily available, and, therein lies the rub.  To increase magnesium ion availability, Young Again Club chose the simplest and most viable pathway, which is, applying bio-active magnesium ions in liquid spray form to the skin.

Meaningful ion absorption through the skin is accomplished with the help of activated boron ions as the transporter of Mg ions.

Back to the food:

Complete digestion of food is a requirement for good health and maintenance of mitochondrial activity. High metabolic activity associated with youth and peak health come with elevated production of ATP. The electron transport chain is a critical component of the Krebs Cycle which takes place within the mitochondria.

People over age 35, whose bodies are slowing down, suffer shortfall of ATP production. Mitochondrial activity must be accelerated and restored for regeneration and aging reversal to occur; part of that process involves bio-active magnesium ions.

Another important element affecting mitochondrial activity is balance of the regulatory hormones insulin and leptin.  Please read Special Insights, Change Your Food Habits, Change Your Life by clicking hyperlink.

Mitochondrial “disease” (so-called) is nothing more than the slowing and shutting down of formerly profuse and active mitochondria with formerly healthy cells and tissues.  Deal with your terrain and dis-ease goes away.

Mitochondrial Disease

Like other so-called diseases, Mitocondrial Disease is not a disease at all; rather it is a condition that develops from loss of control over the body’s terrain; specifically, waste accumulation at the cellular level, acidification of the terrain and severe shortages of bio-active iodine, magnesium and seleneum ions.

Other factors related to the onset and development of this condition are hormonal imbance, particularly of thyroid dysfunction and insulin/leptin resistance.  You can read up on these topics in the Glossary Link below.


The health of the liver and the state of the ‘terrain’ are central to mitochondrial activity. Please review the Tissue & Liver Protocol for insight into healthy liver function by clicking hyperlink.

Deep sleep, good diet, complete digestion of fats, proteins and carbs, exercise, active bowels and absence of dietary sweets and alcohol are core issues in maintenance and restoration of the terrain, in general, and mitochondrial activity specifically.


  1. Change your lifestyle and your diet.
  2. Embrace Young Again Club Protocols.
  3. Ask for help and be open to new ideas.

The above factors are  key points of a healthy lifestyle for Young Again Club members. Use Glossary link below to look up words and topics of interest.

If you have lost your getup and go, you can bet your mitochondria got up and went. For help, send a message and ask John Thomas to contact you..
