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.1-5 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.6-11
Mitochondrial Basics brings together three cutting-edge mitochondrial energizers in a one capsule per day, value-priced formula:
PQQ. This breakthrough micronutrient is technically a vitamin12-14 and has recently been shown to trigger mitochondrial biogenesis—the growth of new mitochondria in aging cells!15 PQQ also activates genes involved in protecting the delicate structures within the mitochondria.16-19
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.20-25 Mitochondrial Basics contains the superior Bio-Enhanced® R-lipoic acid and is in a proprietary microencapsulated form for better absorption.
L-Taurine.This free amino acid supports whole-body health and boosts new brain cell formation in the area of the brain connected to learning and memory.26
