How Do Our Cells Produce Energy


How Do Our Cells Produce Energy ?

The body's energy comes from outside sources

      These energy sources can be natural or man-made -

-       Natural Energy sources – include the food we eat, water, sunshine, herbs/essential oils, natural sounds, other people, the air we breathe,  and from God Himself - our ultimate source of energy!


-       Man-made sources – include electromedicine or other mechanisms providing energy at frequencies mimicking nature. E.g. light or sound therapy, frequency therapies. Note also, that man-made energy sources not “in tune” with nature can reduce cellular energy production.


A human generates ~100 Watts from a 2000 calorie daily diet,

 about the same as as a bright light bulb.    

    Every one of your body’s cells has a “battery” across its outer membrane – this voltage difference across the cell membrane powers movement of ingredients into and out of the cell. The voltage level of this cell "battery"  can be increased or reduced by energy sources or other presences/phenomenon:

       Natural or nature-mimicking man-made energy sources

       Positive emotions


       Past or present emotional trauma

       Non-natural, man-made energy frequencies

       Toxins, microbes

The primary energy currency of the body is stored in the form of an ATP molecule

Your body makes 2/3 of its own weight in ATP every day

(ATP is adenosine triphosphate, containing high-energy phosphate bonds)

(1)    ATP requires some energy to be made


(2)    ATP releases energy when broken down by enzymes.

ATP is used to provide energy for most of the work done by the cell, and also for the cell's own maintenance


      When you move a muscle, think, breathe, replicate your DNA, and when your heart beats -  you use ATP molecules.


      Cells produce ATP most efficiently by a complex process called “cellular respiration” utilizing OXYGEN and glucose - This enzyme-controlled process takes place mainly in the cell’s MITOCHONDRIA (“energy factories” of a cell), in which OXYGEN strips high-energy ELECTRONS from (“oxidizes”) organic compounds, such as glucose

These ELECTRONS are then passed to successive steps in the Cellular Respiration Cycle to ultimately produce cellular ATP energy.  Active cells, such as muscle cells require more energy and therefore contain more mitochondria.

When no glucose
is available, ATP can be produced from ELECTRONS stored in FATTY ACIDS, and the liver can also convert protein AMINO ACIDS to glucose.

      Cells can also produce energy without oxygen - but by much less efficient fermentation pathways.
