Glucose is taken from the bloodstream rather than directly produced in the cell.


The food we eat is broken down into the simple building blocks and then is transported through the bloodstream to the rest of the body. Cells take what they need from the blood, such as oxygen and glucose. The mitochondria then utilize glucose and oxygen in order to produce ATP.
