The Life Extension Foundation is the world’s largest membership organization dedicated to investigating every method of extending the healthy human life span and funding anti-aging research. Based on current scientific research, Life Extension is continually formulating and upgrading its science-based multivitamin, vitamin, and nutritional supplement formulas to include the latest novel ingredients that are years ahead of mainstream offerings.
LifeExtension Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer with PQQ is an advanced formula to support optimal mitochondrial function and creation of new mitochondria as well as assisting to keep up health of cells and metabolic processes.
As more and more research shows the crucial importance of mitochondria for wellbeing and healthy ageing, it also associates certain compounds that assist in health and function of these cell organelles. Mitochondria, known as “cellular dynamos” are found in every cell in the body but especially in the heart, liver, brain and muscles where they produce cellular energy and are part of the cellular respiration and metabolic processes. Just about every cellular process is linked to mitochondria and research shows their optimal function is critical for cell survival in a variety of ways. For this reason, malfunction of mitochondria is associated with a range of health complaints. Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer with PQQ brings together the following cutting-edge mitochondrial energizers:
PQQ is a micronutrient that is technically a vitamin and has recently been shown to support mitochondrial biogenesis — the growth of new mitochondria in aging cells! PQQ also assists gene function involved in protecting the delicate structures within the mitochondria.
R-lipoic acid is a potent antioxidant to support mitochondria in their defense from free radical damage. Free radical damage is one of the chief obstacles to optimal mitochondrial function. Mitochondrial Basics contains the superior Bio-Enhanced R-lipoic acid and is in a proprietary microencapsulated form for better absorption.
L-Taurine is a free amino acid which supports whole body health including normal brain cell and cognitive function by assisting mitochondria in their defense from radical damage and supporting energy production.
Carnosine and Pyridoxal 5’-Phosphate are two compounds which help to stabilize cellular response to a process called glycation. Glycation is an age-related process during which sugars and proteins cross-link causing damage to neural, vascular, renal and ocular tissues.
Luteolin is a plant-derived flavonoid, an antioxidant, which supports the body’s response to inflammatory processes which in turn assists with healthy ageing.
Benfotiamine, a form of B1 acts as an antioxidant and supports the body towards a healthy inflammatory response.
