Cell Respiration - 11 How much ATP do we get from oxidizing glucose in aerobic cellular respiration? The electrons and H + from each NADH produced in the Krebs cycle and the oxidation of pyruvate to acetyl Co-A provides sufficient energy to produce about 3 ATP by chemiosmosis. The electrons and H + from each FADH 2 produced in the Krebs cycle provides sufficient energy to produce about 2 ATP by chemiosmosis (FAD is a lower energy electron transfer molecule and enters the transport chain in mid-chain, rather than at the start) The electrons and hydrogen from each NADH from Glycolysis provides sufficient energy to produce about 2 ATP
