Regeneration booster

Mitochondria are literally the “power plants” of our cells.

Mitochondria are literally the “power plants” of our cells. They play a central role in cell biology, especially in energy production and cell regulation. The main function of mitochondria is the generation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) through the process of oxidative phosphorylation. ATP is the primary energy source required by our cells for a variety of functions, including muscle contraction and collagen synthesis for cartilage formation. Enzymatic metabolic processes for cell renewal and DNA repair are also heavily dependent on ATP.

Mitochondrial health can be affected by a variety of factors, including stress, lack of exercise, poor diet, ageing, disease, injury and surgery. All of these factors can lead to the degradation and reduced performance of mitochondria, which can have a negative impact on overall health and well-being.

At Sporthopaedic Hamburg, we have developed a holistic approach to improve mitochondrial function and health. We concentrate on three main strategies:

Stimulation of mitochondrial biogenesis: This is the process by which new mitochondria are generated in a cell. Various factors can promote mitochondrial biogenesis, such as physical activity and specific dietary interventions.

Promotion of mitophagy: This is the process by which damaged or ageing mitochondria are identified and marked for autophagy (self-digestion). This process is essential for maintaining a healthy population of functional mitochondria in cells.

Supply of sufficient “building materials” for mitochondrial synthesis: This includes certain nutrients and molecules that are essential for proper mitochondrial function, such as coenzyme Q10, magnesium, B vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, and certain antioxidants.

Our specific therapeutic approach, which combines whole-body cryosauna and interval hypoxia-hyperoxia training, aims to promote mitochondrial biogenesis and improve mitophagy. This results in the breakdown of underperforming mitochondria and a sharp increase in the concentration of new, healthy mitochondria. This process increases the body’s performance and allows healing and regeneration processes to take place unimpaired and efficiently.

Our tailored nutritional consultations provide further support by ensuring that your body receives the right “building materials” to support and enhance mitochondrial function. This all helps to shorten your recovery times after injuries, operations or herniated discs, and optimally prepares your body for upcoming surgery.

Three things are needed to increase the proportion of efficient mitochondria in the cell.

1. An incentive for the cell to grow new mitochondria
2. Eliminate old, low-performing mitochondria
3. Sufficient “building materials” for mitochondrial synthesis

The combination of whole-body cryosauna and interval hypoxia-hyperoxia training

The combination of whole-body cryosauna (2.5 min at -140°C) and interval hypoxia-hyperoxia training (adaptive altitude training without physical exertion) leads to the breakdown of underperforming mitochondria and an immense increase in the concentration of fresh, healthy mitochondria. As a result, the body becomes more efficient and healing/regeneration processes can take place more quickly without being affected. This allows you to recover more quickly from injuries, operations and slipped discs, prepares you specifically for an operation and shortens your rehabilitation time.

We look forward to accompanying you on your path to longevity.
