MitoQ

From the manufacturer


 

To understand our story, you first need to understand some of the science behind it – so let’s spend a couple of minutes getting reacquainted with some introductory biology.

 

Mitochondria are the tiny power-plants inside almost all of our 37 trillion cells, working hard to produce the energy we need every day.   However, the cellular energy generation process produces a potentially damaging by-product, called a free radical.  Free radicals can cause wear and tear on the mitochondria, which can lead to less energy being produced.  To make matters worse, if the mitochondrial wall is also compromised, some free radicals can leak into the cell and damage the delicate equipment within it.  

 

To neutralize this potential damage, mitochondria stack themselves with a naturally-produced antioxidant called CoQ10, which they use to line the mitochondrial walls with a defensive barrier.  But as we age, the level of CoQ10 produced inside our mitochondria declines.  When the level of CoQ10 declines to a point where it cannot counteract the damaging effects of free radicals, we place our cells in a state of oxidative stress.  Oxidative stress can compromise our ability to generate energy, as well as make us more susceptible to illness.  In fact, oxidative stress can be a significant cause of a number of serious health conditions, including seven of the top ten most costly to human life.
