- Life Extension Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer with PQQ protects delicate cellular structures and enables cells to perform life-sustaining metabolic processes and it helps generate new mitochondria.*
- All cells in our bodies contain tiny organelles called mitochondria that function to produce cellular energy by means of the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) cycle.*
- 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 our cells, so does the vitality of organs such as the heart and brain or in some cases, the entire body.*
- In order for the mitochondria to create the energy needed to sustain cellular function, fatty acids (which serve as the mitochondria's fuel) must be transported through the cell membrane and into the mitochondria.*
- Life Extension Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer with PQQ is designed to counteract age-related structural and functional changes in the mitochondrial and promote biogenesis with these unique ingredients:*
- PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline quinone) this next generation cellular rejuvenator triggers growth of new mitochondria in aging cells and activates genes involved in protecting delicate structures within the mitochondria.*
- Carnosine As humans age, their proteins become irreversibly damaged by lethal glycation reactions. Glycation is the cross-linking of proteins or lipids and sugar to form non-functioning advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) in the body, which can lead to alterations of normal cell function. Carnosine is not only the premier anti-glycating agent, but it also protects neurons against reactive and cytotoxic protein carbonyl species associated with normal aging.*
- Luteolin Unremitting systemic inflammation is involved with virtually every undesirable consequence of aging. Culprits behind inflammatory reactions are pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin-1 and tumor necrosis factor alpha. Luteolin is a super-potent plant extract that has been shown to suppress these dangerous inflammatory cytokines.*
- Benfotiamine Benfotiamine blocks multiple destructive biochemical pathways, including AGEs' formation pathway, which is induced by higher than desirable blood glucose levels.35 Human mortality studies indicate that ideal fasting glucose levels are between 74“85 mg/dL. Yet many aging people have fasting glucose above 90 mg/dL, which is less than optimal. Benfotiamine can activate glucose metabolism and promote already healthy blood glucose levels. In addition, ben-fotiamine exhibits direct antioxidative capacity and prevents induction of DNA damage.*
- Pyridoxal 5'-Phosphate Aging results in the formation of toxic advanced glycation end products throughout the body. Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate is the active form of vitamin B6 that has been shown to protect against both lipid and protein glycation reactions.*
- R-Lipoic Acid Destructive free radical activity in the mitochondria plays a major role in the loss of cellular vitality. The microencapsu-lated Bio-Enhanced 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.*
- Acetyl-L-Carnitine Arginate The amino acid L-carnitine is required to transport fats into the mitochondria to be burned for 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.*
