MitoQ +Curcumin is the only product to combine the world’s most effective CoQ10 antioxidant MitoQ, with highly bioavailable Longvida® Optimized Curcumin Extract. Here we breakdown what oxidative stress is, how antioxidants help, and the benefits of each product and why together they are a super supplement for super health.
What is oxidative stress?
Oxidative stress is a term that describes a form of stress caused by oxidative molecules in the body. Oxidative molecules like free radicals are unstable due to a lone electron in their valence shell. Electrons like to be in pairs and a free radical molecule will steal electrons from other molecules nearby to establish an electron pair. Free radicals can cause damage to many cellular components including proteins, DNA, and even membranes.
How antioxidants support healthy cells
Free radicals are a byproduct of many cellular processes and are an inherent part of living organisms. Free radicals are often portrayed as toxic molecules, but in reality, they only cause problems when the balance of free radicals and antioxidants swings too far where free radicals become unruly and can start to wreak havoc.
Antioxidants can be thought of as molecules that act to ensure free radicals don’t cause unnecessary damage. Antioxidants are found throughout the body and naturally occur in many different fruits and vegetables.
There are many different forms of antioxidants and each has its own place in how they protect the cell and body from oxidative damage. Curcumin and CoQ10 are potent antioxidants that play an important role within the body.
CoQ10 is a specific antioxidant that helps the mitochondrial membrane fight back against free radicals produced during cellular respiration. CoQ10 levels can see a decline with age and this can result in oxidative stress and decreased mitochondrial efficiency. CoQ10 can be supplemented but many forms of CoQ10 are poorly absorbed into the body.
Curcumin is an antioxidant that comes from outside sources that have been shown to support skin health, cholesterol levels, brain health, and gastrointestinal health. Curcumin is considered a super supplement for its wide-reaching impacts and ability to help your body fight back against free radicals and oxidative stress.
Why bioavailability matters
Bioavailability may just sound like another buzzword, but in reality, bioavailability represents a very important aspect of any supplement you take.
At its most basic, bioavailability is a measure of how well the body is able to utilize a molecule or supplement. This concept is important for supplementation because it gives you a much better idea of what you are actually paying for. A supplement may state that it contains a certain amount of a molecule, but depending on quality and bioavailability that product may only yield a small amount of absorption and utilization within the body.
Both CoQ10 and curcumin are excellent antioxidants to supplement. Utilizing MitoQ and Longvida® Optimized Curcumin are the best ways to ensure you are getting what you pay for and that the supplements you spend your hard-earned money on are actually being utilized and absorbed into your body.where it is needed most. Supplements with low bioavailability may be cheaper, but they often times yield little benefit and low levels of absorption within the body.
What is MitoQ?
MitoQ is a new patented mitochondria-targeted formulation of the antioxidant CoQ10 with significantly superior absorption compared to standard CoQ10/ubiquinol. MitoQ is able to deliver a payload of free radical defense directly into your cell’s energy-producing mitochondria, thus accumulating inside the mitochondria hundreds of times more effectively than all other forms of CoQ10 supplements. And when you increase levels of CoQ10 in the mitochondria, it is like ‘tuning up’ your cellular engine, making more energy available to your cells and reducing the oxidative stress from free radical damage.
What is Longvida® Optimized Curcumin?
Curcumin comes from Turmeric, a spice belonging to the ginger family. In addition to its use as a spice & pigment, turmeric has been used in India for medicinal purposes for centuries. The bright yellow-orange color of turmeric comes mainly from pigments known as curcuminoids.
Curcumin, the principal curcuminoid found in turmeric, is considered its most active component with growing evidence, and scientific interest in its potential in a multitude of health benefits. It is one of the most thoroughly researched natural compounds today. In its natural form, curcumin is not soluble in water and is poorly absorbed by the gut. This means that large doses are required to achieve health benefits.
Clinical human bioavailability data has found Longvida® to be an incredible 65 to 100 times more bioavailable than unformulated curcumin.
One ground-breaking finding over the course of several bioavailability studies, shows that dosing of Longvida® leads to clinically significant levels of free (not inactivated or bound) curcumin in the bloodstream and in multiple organs, including the brain and digestive system.
This makes Longvida® Optimized Curcumin the most advanced and bioavailable curcumin formulation available.
The combination of these two mighty compounds MitoQ and Longvida® Optimized Curcumin makes MitoQ +Curcumin a super supplement which aims to:
- Reduce oxidative stress
- Support mitochondrial function
- Maintain cellular energy
- Support balanced immune response pathways
- Support overall physical brain health and mental function including alertness, sharpness and focus
Curcumin has also shown benefits in supporting:
- Skin health
- Normal cholesterol levels
- Healthy cardiovascular function
- Metabolic function
Who can benefit from MitoQ +Curcumin
Oxidative stress is something that affects all people. Even if you were in a bubble and just existing and living your daily life, free radicals would still be present and could still pose a risk to your body. Add in sources of accelerated oxidative stress from the environment like poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, and other poor lifestyle choices, and your body is at even higher risk for oxidative damage.
The unique blend of these two highly bioavailable antioxidants makes it ideal for nearly everyone looking to improve their cellular health. Whether you are an elite athlete or just a typical nine to fiver, having a dose of supercharged antioxidants can ensure your body stays in check and is supported against the imposing threat of free radicals and oxidative stress.
Those that have diminished levels of CoQ10 will notice the largest benefits from MitoQ + Curcumin. As described previously, CoQ10 levels can decline with age, and when CoQ10 levels are restored in the mitochondria it reestablishes a strong basis of cellular energy which can have large impacts on overall wellbeing.
In summary, MitoQ + Curcumin is a super supplement because of its superb ability to support the body. Both MitoQ and Longvida® Optimized Curcumin represent the very best versions of CoQ10 and curcumin. With their high bioavailability, you can ensure that your body is getting the benefits of added antioxidant protection you are paying for.
The dynamic duo of the two super antioxidants can support your cellular energy mechanisms while also supporting gastrointestinal, brain, and immune health. With a simple two-pill dose before your breakfast, you can ensure your body is protected and supported. MitoQ + Curcumin costs less than a good cup of coffee per dose and can have a positive impact on your overall wellbeing.
MitoQ +Curcumin is a research-based, easily-digested and very potent formula for anyone seeking brain or digestive system support. Also for anyone looking for maintaining energy levels and long-term organ health.
