Healthy mitochondria are vital because they give your cells and organs, including your body’s largest organ, your skin, the energy they need to function well. If the cells that make up your skin don’t get the energy they need as you age the result is fine lines and wrinkles, a lack of elasticity, dark spots and dull skin tone.
Mitochondria are responsible for making up to 95 per cent of the energy in your cells and in the process produce up to 95 per cent of the free radicals.
Delivering powerful antioxidant support to mitochondria so they can fight symptoms of ageing.
For this reason mitochondria need very good antioxidant protection. MitoQ was developed in the late 1990s by mitochondrial biochemist Michael Murphy and organic chemist Robin Smith at the University of Otago.
The result of their work, MitoQ, is a revolutionary product that delivers powerful antioxidant support to mitochondria so they can fight the symptoms of ageing. MitoQ has been able to use this technology in its Moisturising Anti-Ageing Serum.
The patented anti-ageing technology supports youthful collagen and elastin production so your skin becomes smoother, lighter and brighter, the results of which have been tested at the London Dermatology Centre.
Both male and female patients, aged between 32 and 48, had preliminary Visia scans performed to examine skin texture and detect and count wrinkles, UV spots, red areas, pores and brown spots.
The patients then used MitoQ Moisturising Serum daily for eight weeks. At the conclusion of the trial, Visia scans showed that 69 per cent of patients had a reduction in red areas, 62 per cent had improved skin texture and a reduction in wrinkles, and 46 per cent of patients had a quantifiable reduction in UV spots.
As a result, MitoQ is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. The hypoallergenic formula is suitable for all skin types.
Reassuringly MitoQ is backed by more than $50 million in research and has more than 200 papers published investigating its effect.
MitoQ is available at leading pharmacies and at mitoq.co.nz. Always read the label and use as directed. If symptoms persist, see your healthcare professional.
