One such regulatory approach is via the manipulation of cellular energy.  Cellular energy is synonymous with metabolic power.  As we age there is a decrease in metabolism, furthermore, numerous disease states involve metabolic dysfunction (i.e. ischemia/stroke, cancer).  As we all know, the major power plant of the cell is the mitochondria.  It utilizes high energy intermediates (NADH and FADH) to donate electrons and drive the production of ATP, our functional energy source.  Can we alter metabolic fitness by providing an alternative electron source?
