What is the function of the Mitochondria!?

The Mitochondria is important because it breaks down the food that we eat into simpler molecules. They also help with building certain parts of blood, and hormones such as testosterone. When the liver they have enzymes that detoxify ammonia.

Parts of the Mitochondria!!

Mitochondria has five main parts. They are the Outer Membrane (film-like structure that separates two fluids.), Inter Membrane space (region between the inner membrane and the outer membrane), Inner Membrane, Matrix (an environment or material in which something develops), and Cristae (the internal compartments formed by the inner membrane).
