The Importance of Looking After Your Liver as You Age

Last Updated: May 20, 2019 | 5 minute read


As we get older, we all notice that our energy levels and ability to recover start to diminish. It becomes more and more important to look after our organs to stay healthy, and it certainly becomes more noticeable when we don’t. We are bombarded by messages telling us to look after our hearts and keep our brains active and, while this is very important, when did you last hear the same fanfare about your liver? Your liver has more jobs than most of your other organs put together, and it is just as important in keeping you alive and healthy. Your liver metabolizes food and drugs, and stores and recycles many of the components of your blood. It is also responsible for breaking down toxins that you’ve ingested into harmless by-products your body can remove.

The energy your organs need comes from the tiny energy factories inside your cells called “mitochondria”. When mitochondria produce this energy, they also produce “free radicals”. Healthy mitochondria are very good at neutralizing excess free radicals, but when your liver isn’t functioning like it did when you were young, your mitochondria aren’t able to control the free radical damage properly any more. Your cells can go into a state known as “oxidative stress”, and this has been shown to be a major contributor to declining liver function.function starts to decline naturally; by about 10% per decade after our thirties.

As you age, your mitochondrial function starts to decline naturally; by about 10% per decade after our thirties. This means that when we get into our seventies, it might get as low as 50%, even if we are otherwise healthy. A diet high in fats and sugars is also known to be a major contributor to declining liver health, as is excess consumption of alcohol. When we have a poor diet or drink too much, we can disrupt our metabolisms and our mitochondria can suffer from free radical damage as a result.

MitoQ Liver® is a ground breaking formula containing patented MitoQ, the only antioxidant available that is actively taken up inside your mitochondria where it is needed most. MitoQ is a special formulation of your mitochondria’s natural free radical defense molecule, CoQ10, which accumulates inside your mitochondria at levels hundreds of times higher than other CoQ10 supplements. This means your liver gets the energy it needs to keep you going and can start to help repair the damage that has accumulated over the years.

Choline is an essential dietary nutrient, found in meat, eggs and fish. Choline is important for cell repair and fat metabolism, especially in your liver. Researchers think that most people do not get enough choline in their diets, and that this significantly increases the risk of abnormal liver function. Ensuring you get a sufficient intake of choline with MitoQ Liver® is an excellent and easy way to help keep your liver lean and working as it should.

Milk thistle is a herb that has been used as a natural liver tonic for centuries. The active ingredient in milk thistle, “silybin”, has been shown to help protect your liver from oxidative stress and the damage it can cause. 

MitoQ Liver® contains “Siliphos®“, a patented formulation of this remarkable compound with absorption levels several times that of standard silybin.

MitoQ Liver® also contains selenium; an essential micronutrient that has been shown to help boost natural liver antioxidant levels.

It’s comforting to know that, along with a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle, MitoQ Liver® can help protect your liver and provide your cells with the energy and antioxidant defenses they need.  This helps your cells stay younger for longer, helps to slow the damage that has accumulated over time, and supports your liver for a long and productive lifespan.
