Exercise: A good combination of strength building, cardiovascular training, and intense circuit training is the best way to strengthen mtDNA.
According to Ori Hofmekler and Mark Sisson who have written several books on the topic of metabolic function, to get the most bang for the buck relative to improving mitochondrial capacity one must:
