Read Health Guru Teresa Marie's wonderful blog post about MitoQ's anti-aging supplement she stands by and why below
As a vegetable advocate, I believe strongly in the power of food. If you’re already maximizing your health and energy through a high quality diet and an active lifestyle, what else can you do? This is where supplements come in — but not just ANY supplement. Some are simply bottles of clever marketing and/or low quality products that can be difficult to absorb and have little impact in your body’s function.
A supplement I stand by: MitoQ
Last year I had the chance to try the MitoQ product while I was training for the Ventura Marathon. And I won’t lie, I really did feel better when I was taking it. I shared the details in a post called “get your energy back.” Today I have more news about the product, but not just in terms of energy, but in terms of fighting pre-mature aging. As a gal who’s staring her 40th birthday in the face, clearing a hot topic for me!
The MitoQ magic: your cell’s mitochondria
MitoQ is a revolutionary new form of CoQ10 that targets mitochondria, your cellular batteries, and is scientifically proven to be hundreds of times more effective than CoQ10! MitoQ is backed by over $50 million in research and has over 200 papers published investigating its effect.
Why do my mitochondria matter?
Healthy mitochondria are vital because they give your cells and organs the energy they need to function well. They are responsible for making 90-95% of the energy in your cells and in the process produce 90-95% of the free radicals. For this reason mitochondria need very good antioxidant protection.
This protection declines over time (10% every decade)
Which leads to less effective mitochondria and free radicals spilling into the cell causing damage to cell contents and our DNA. A high quality diet full of fresh fruits and veggies is very helpful, but MitoQ also supports mitochondrial function and also reduces free radical damage in the cell.
If you’re feeling sluggish, this could explain why
Decreased mitochondria protection from aging means means your cells don’t get the energy they need to power our organs at optimal levels. This lack of vital cellular energy is manifested in fatigue and poor health and in our skin, with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, lack of elasticity, dark spots and dull skin tone.
Can your really cells act as if they are younger again?
MitoQ says that if we can correct this lack of cellular energy and get our mitochondria working well, then our cells are recharged; they will start acting and looking like they did when we were younger. Your skin becomes smoother, lighter and brighter, your body will function better and you will feel stronger and healthier, for longer. This should be very appealing to anyone over the age of 40 as it will give you the feeling of more energy and your skin a healthier glow.

More exciting news from MitoQ
Understanding the aging process is critical to our ability to understand and treat highly age-related diseases that currently kill or limit the quality of life of the majority of people in developed countries. MitoQ has been invited to participate in the USA’s prestigious National Institute of Aging’s (NIA). Interventions Testing Program (ITP) – an internationally renowned anti-aging testing program funded by the US Government.
MitoQ’s selection in the NIA program validates a decade long international research effort and supports scientists’ claims that MitoQ has significant potential to reverse or decelerate the aging process.
