Mitochondrial Basics with BioPQQ
Behind every process your body needs to survive and thrive are the cellular energy generators known as mitochondria. Their function is so crucial that a growing number of scientists now believe mitochondrial longevity may determine overall longevity in aging humans. That's why Life Extension has remained at the forefront in identifying innovative compounds that specifically support mitochondrial health.
In addition to the more comprehensive Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer with BioPQQ and stand-alone PQQ products, we now offer a one capsule per day formula for individuals seeking a simplified, low-cost option, called Mitochondrial Basics with PQQ. The reason? We want all members to have access to targeted nutrients required to support mitochondrial function and the generation of healthy new mitochondria.
Mitochondrial Basics brings together cutting-edge mitochondrial energizers, including the most exciting nutrient to emerge in recent years: pyrroloquinoline quinone,or PQQ. The three ingredients in Mitochondrial Basics are:
1.PQQ. This breakthrough micronutrient has recently been shown to trigger mitochondrial biogenesis-the growth of new mitochondria in aging cells! PQQ also activates genes involved in protecting the delicate structures within the mitochondria.
2.R-lipoic acid. The detrimental effects of free radicals comprise one of the chief obstacles to optimal mitochondrial energy production. Published studies confirm R-lipoic acid's power to promote mitochondrial bioenergetics while simultaneously blunting free radical activity. Mitochondrial Basics contains the superior Bio-Enhanced R-lipoic acid and is in a proprietary microencapsulated form for better absorption.
3.Acetyl-L-carnitine arginate. Fats are shuttled into the mitochondria for metabolic combustion by the amino acid carnitine. The acetylated form of carnitine helps to facilitate more efficient utilization of fats than carnitine alone.
