How to recharge your body with better mitochondrial health

How to recharge your body with better mitochondrial health

Mitochondria act as our cellular batteries. When we’re young, they work at maximum efficiency, but decline as we age. The world-first MitoQ ‘charges’ your mitochondria so you can power through life.

How to recharge your body with better mitochondrial health

We’ve all been there – that moment when you reach for the phone to make an important call or get directions, and the battery’s dead. And you’ve left the charger at home. The same thing can happen with our bodies. So, just how do you recharge your body?

Every human is made up of trillions of cells. Inside nearly all of them are mitochondria. They combine the food we eat and the air we breathe to generate the energy that cells need to operate in our heart, brain, liver, lungs, and every part of the body.

Mitochondria act as cellular batteries and are at the core of everything our body does to keep us healthy and alive.

If mitochondria are healthy and functioning optimally, our bodies will be, too. However, if they’re unhealthy, they can’t supply cells with the energy they need. When mitochondria slow down, so does our power supply, and so do we.

When we’re young and healthy, our mitochondria work at maximum efficiency. We bounce back quickly from injury and illness. As we age, mitochondria start to decline in function – studies suggest that from age 30, the rate of decline is as much as 10 per cent per decade.

We don’t notice it immediately, but we start to have less energy; we don’t recover as quickly from injury or illness; organs age and we start to look and feel older.

However, MitoQ has made a breakthrough that can help you.

Recharge your mitochondria

Mitochondria stack themselves with an enzyme called CoQ10, produced inside the mitochondria and used in two essential roles:

  1. It helps create cellular energy;
  2. It helps neutralise harmful free radicals, a by-product of the energy production process inside the mitochondria, preventing them from leaking out of the mitochondria into the main body of the cell.

As we get older, mitochondria produce less CoQ10. As stocks of CoQ10 decrease, two things can happen inside the mitochondria:

  1. Their energy production process is disrupted, so they supply less power to cells – we start to feel more tired;
  2. They leak more and more free radicals into cells, which can cause damage to the point where cells are overwhelmed and enter a stage of oxidative stress, which is known to contribute to some serious health issues.

This state of decline is called mitochondrial dysfunction. It is known to be one of the key contributing factors to the ageing process, and it affects every human. Minimising oxidative stress starts with looking after mitochondria, helping them to keep performing at their best. All the components of a healthy lifestyle – good diet, regular exercise and adequate sleep – combine to create an environment in which mitochondria can thrive.

But even with a healthy lifestyle, mitochondria still slow down naturally with age. That’s why, along with making healthy choices, taking a supplement that actively supports mitochondrial performance is a smart strategy to help maintain energy levels, protect cells, and support ongoing wellbeing and longevity.

MitoQ is a world-first, mitochondria-targeted CoQ10 antioxidant. The breakthrough formula is absorbed through the mitochondrial membrane and into the mitochondria, hundreds of times more effectively than regular CoQ10 supplements.1 

Mitochondria use MitoQ to reline the mitochondrial membrane, helping maintain its structural integrity and the defensive barrier.

This means free radicals can be neutralised, and their levels can be contained, delivering a double benefit:

  • Normal energy production continues unaffected;
  • The risk of harm to delicate cell equipment is reduced.

MitoQ is one of the most studied mitochondrial-targeted CoQ10 antioxidants. More than $60 million of independent research and over 350 peer-reviewed articles have been published, testing MitoQ across a range of health-related applications.

Research has shown that after oral administration, MitoQ rapidly accumulates in mitochondria-rich tissue such as the heart, brain, skeletal muscle, liver and kidneys, helping guard against oxidative stress and maintaining healthy function and performance.

Once back to their best, mitochondria charge our cells so we can power through life and age with attitude.
