Mitochondrial Basics with BioPQQ Description from Life Extension
Behind every physiological process your body needs to survive and thrive are cellular energy generators known as mitochondria. Their function is so crucial that a growing number of scientists believe mitochondrial longevity may determine overall longevity in aging humans. One of the most serious events that cause the loss of cellular vitality is the depletion of mitochondrial energy-producing function. Cells require healthy mitochondrial activity to perform life-sustaining metabolic processes. As mitochondrial function weakens in our cells, so does the vitality of organs such as the heart and brain or in some cases, the entire body. Mitochondrial Basics brings together three cutting-edge mitochondrial energizers in a one capsule per day, value-priced formula:
1. PQQ. This breakthrough micronutrient is technically a vitamin and has recently been shown to trigger mitochondrial biogenesis-the growth of new mitochondria in aging cells! PQQ also activates genes involved in protecting the delicate structures within the mitochondria.
2. R-lipoic acid. The effects of free radicals comprise one of the chief obstacles to optimal mitochondrial energy production. Published studies confirm R-lipoic acid's power to promote mitochondrial bioenergetics while simultaneously blunting free radical activity. Mitochondrial Basics contains the superior Bio-Enhanced R-lipoic acid and is in a proprietary microencapsulated form for better absorption.
3. Acetyl-L-carnitine arginate. Fats are shuttled into the mitochondria for metabolic combustion by the amino acid carnitine. The acetylated form of carnitine helps to facilitate more efficient utilization of fats than carnitine alone.
With this lower-cost option, all members have access to targeted nutrients required to support mitochondrial function and the generation of healthy new mitochondria.
