  • The Importance of Cellular Energy

    Cellular energy. It sounds modern, but it’s as old as life itself. And it’s the very foundation of good health. When we have great cellular energy levels, we think better, feel better, move better, look better and perform better. That’s because, at a very basic physical level, our cells are responsible for everything our bodies do. Healthier cells mean great vitality, mental clarity, weight management and physical performance. Bountiful cellular energy also offsets the aging process which is brought on by cell degeneration. In a manner of speaking, achieving optimum cellular energy is akin to having our own internal fountain of youth.

  • OXIDATIVE STRESS: WHAT IS IT AND WHAT DOES IT DO?

    When the mitochondria in our cells produce energy, they produce waste products called free radicals. It’s kind of like the exhaust produced by an engine. These free radicals are usually highly reactive oxygen compounds, and they can cause a lot of damage to our cells if they are not neutralised by special molecules called “antioxidants”. When the levels of antioxidants in our body are not high enough to counteract the damaging effect of free radicals, this is known as “Oxidative Stress”. Oxidative stress has been identified as either a cause or consequence of almost every known health condition! Oxidative stress is also thought to be a major contributor to the aging process itself, causing symptoms such as reduced energy levels, wrinkled skin, brittle bones and loss of fertility. Many, but not all, of the more serious health conditions caused by oxidative stress are most often seen in older people.

  • Mitochondria: what are they and why are they important to my health?

    Mitochondria are tiny double membrane-bound organelles found in almost every cell of all organisms except bacteria. Known as the “powerhouse of the cell” they are primarily responsible for converting the air we breathe and the food we eat into energy that our cells can use to grow, divide and function. Given this, it is no surprise that cells which require the most energy, such as those in the brain, heart, liver and muscle, have the highest number of mitochondria in them (liver cells can have over 2,000). The only cells in humans which do not contain mitochondria are our red blood cells.

  • MitoQ is an Exciting Advance in CoQ Antioxidant Technology

    One of our most basic human needs that we often take for granted is the natural energy in our bodies; without enough of it, it’s hard to perform everyday functions like getting out of bed, going for a run, or even the most second-nature and involuntary tasks like breathing and pumping blood through our veins. We’re quick to remedy this exhaustion with coffee and other overly-caffeinated drinks that give us the boost of energy we need to power through the work day, only to crash back into a state of fatigue hours later. This short phenomenon occurs because while caffeine has a brief impact on our energy and concentration levels as it makes its way through our bloodstream, it does nothing to resolve the problem at its source. Over the last decade, companies have been developing solutions to this issue through more natural ways to restore our energy — one of the most promising being the introduction of CoQ10 supplements to the market.

  • Depression Brings Changes To Mitochondrial DNA

    Scientists have discovered that stress-induced depression is correlated with an increase in the length of mitochondrial DNA. Furthermore, it was observed in mice that stress is associated with a decrease in the length of telomeres. The findings were published in the journal Current Biology.

  • New study shows anti-aging properties of mitochondria-targeted antioxidants

    Earlier this month, a group of Russian and Swedish scientists published a paper reporting the results of a joint study by Lomonosov Moscow State University and Stockholm University. The major goal of the study was to investigate the role of mitochondria, the “cellular power plants”, in the process of aging. The scientists were trying to slow down the aging process in mice using the mitochondria-targeted antioxidant “SkQ1”. SkQ1 is very similar to MitoQ, being made up of an antioxidant bound to the same special positively charged molecule as MitoQ. This positive charge allows SkQ1 and MitoQ to target and accumulate inside mitochondria, where they can fight free radical damage.

  • MitoQ - The Best CoQ10 vs. The Rest

    Coenzyme Q10, also known as ubiquinone or CoQ10, is a vitamin-like substance found in the bodies of almost all life forms. CoQ10 is found primarily within mitochondria, the power plants of the cell, where it is a vital part of the energy producing process and also acts as a free radical neutralizing antioxidant. Natural production of CoQ10 decreases with age and also in certain health conditions. When CoQ10 levels diminish, we tend to see poorly functioning mitochondria and increased free radical damage which is now known to be a cause or consequence of a whole host of diseases.

  • Empowering Your Mitochondria

    If you can improve your mitochondrial function, then you may be able to reduce or reverse some symptoms of neurodegeneration by improving the energy available to your neurons. This allows your neurons to perform their functions properly, slows free radical leakage into your cells, and reduces the daily wear and tear caused by oxidative stress.

  • Neurological Disorders & Our Mitochondria

    Your nervous system can be thought of like an electrical network, with your brain as a computer and your nerve fibers like signal wires. If the computer doesn’t have enough power, or the wires get damaged, the signals don’t get through and the whole system stops working properly.

  • Neurons & The Nervous System

    The nervous system is your body’s main control system. It is responsible for your movements and senses, your thoughts and memories, and your many life support systems. It allows you to monitor, and interact with, your internal and external environments. Your nervous system is divided into 2 main components, the “central nervous system” and the “peripheral nervous system”.
