LifeExtension Mitochondrial Basics with BioPQQ is an antioxidant formula designed to help support optimal mitochondrial biogenesis and function. Behind every physiological process the 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 health may determine overall wellbeing and longevity in aging humans.
One of the most serious events that causes 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 cells, so does the vitality of organs such as the heart and brain or in some cases, the entire body.
Mitochondrial Basics brings together three cutting-edge mitochondrial energizers in one capsule per day:
- PQQ: This break-through micronutrient 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: Free radical damage is one of the chief obstacles to optimal mitochondrial function. Studies confirm R-lipoic acid is a potent antioxidant to support mitochondria in their defense from free radical damage. 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 including normal brain cell and cognitive function.
