The cells in the body contain tiny organelles called mitochondria which generate most of the cell´s supply of adenosine triphosphate, used as a source of cellular energy. The number of mitochondria in a cell varies, depending on the organism and the tissue type. A human cell can contain between a few and several thousand mitochondria. There are particularly large numbers of mitochondria in the cells around the heart and in the brain. Healthy mitochondrial function is essential for the cells to be able to perform the metabolic processes essential for life. If there is depletion of mitochondrial energy or when there is free-radical damage to the mitochondria, mitochondrial function in the cells weakens and with it the vitality of organs such as the heart, the brain or even the entire organism.
Fatty acids, which serve as fuel for the mitochondria are transported by means of a specialized carnitine carrier system across the cellular membrane into the mitochondria. Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer with PQQ® is a state-of-the-art nutritional formula that helps protect sensitive cellular structures, maintain healthy metabolic processes and generate new mitochondria. It helps counteract the structural and functional changes that come with age and also promotes mitochondrial biogenesis with the following ingredients:
PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline quinone) - which promotes mitochondrial biogenesis in aging cells and also activates the genes involved in the protection of the delicate structures within the mitochondria.
Carnosine - which counteracts the effects of glycation reactions. Glycation is the process of cross-linking of protein or lipids to sugar to form non-functioning glycation end-products (AGEs). These harmful compounds can affect nearly every type of cell and molecule in the body and are thought to be one factor in aging and in some age-related chronic diseases. Carnosine has also been shown in a number of studies to have neuroprotective effects.
Luteolin – which can inhibit the development of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which are involved with almost every undesirable consequence of aging.
Benfotiamine –which blocks numerous biochemical pathways, including the glycation AGE pathway. AGE formation typically occurs when blood glucose levels are elevated. Ideal fasting blood sugar levels are considered to be between 74 and 85 mg/dl. Yet many aging people have fasting blood sugar levels of more than 90 mg/dl.Benfotiamine can activate glucose metabolism and contribute to maintaining blood sugar levels already within the normal range. In addition, Benfotiamine exhibits direct antioxidative capacity and prevents induction of DNA damage.
Pyridoxal 5’-phosphate, the active form of vitamin B6, has been shown to protect against both lipid and protein glycation reactions.
R-lipoic Acid - which protects mitochondria from free radical damage and supports mitochondrial energy output
Acetyl-L-carnitine arginate - for the transport of fats into the mitochondria, where they are converted into cellular energy. ArginoCarn® acetyl-L-carnitine arginate is a patented form of carnitine that has been shown in cell cultures to stimulate the growth of neurites.
