MITOCHONDRIAL ENERGY OPTIMIZER WITH PQQ

Support Youthful Cellular Energy

Optymalizator Energii Mitochondrialnej z PQQ

Youthful cellular energy is key to longer youth, longer life. And Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer with PQQ is a state-of-the-art nutritional formula that can help you take better care of the little powerhouses in every cell in your body … by protecting delicate cellular structures, enabling cells to perform life-sustaining metabolic processes, even helping generate new mitochondria! This innovative formula helps counteract age-related structural and functional changes and promote the growth of new mitochondria with these unique ingredients:

  • PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline quinone) — triggers growth of new mitochondria in aging cells1 … and activates genes involved in protecting delicate structures within the mitochondria.2-6
  • Carnosine —As humans age, proteins in their bodies become irreversibly damaged by glycation reactions.7 Glycation can lead to alterations of normal cell function.8,9 Carnosine is a powerful anti-glycating agent, and protects neurons against reactive and cytotoxic protein carbonyl species associated with normal aging.10-16
  • Luteolin — Systemic inflammation is involved in most consequences of aging.17,18 Culprits behind inflammatory reactions are pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin-1 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha. Luteolin is a flavonoid that has been shown to help suppress these inflammatory cytokines.19-35
  • Benfotiamine — Human mortality studies indicate that ideal fasting glucose levels are between 70–85 mg/dL. Yet many aging people have fasting glucose above 90 mg/dL, which is not optimal. Benfotiamine can activate glucose metabolism and promote already healthy blood glucose levels. In addition, benfotiamine exhibits direct antioxidative capacity and supports healthy DNA function.36-40
  • Pyridoxal 5’-Phosphate — the active form of vitamin B6 that has been shown to protect against both lipid and protein glycation reactions.41-47
  • R-Lipoic Acid — facilitates youthful mitochondrial energy output while guarding against free radicals. Two forms of lipoic acid are sold on the supplement market, but R-lipoic acid is far more potent.48-55
  • Taurine — this amino acid supports neurite growth56 and powerfully protects the mitochondria57 from oxidative damage to enhance energy production within cells.56,58,59 Taurine is prevalent throughout the body60 and found in especially high amounts in the metabolically active cells that require high mitochondrial energy production (brain,60 nerve, and eye cells61 and heart62 and skeletal muscle63).
