Our brain uses more energy than any other organ in our body. Even though our brain makes up only about 2% of our body weight.
Neuron are the primary cells in our nervous system and are made up of a cell body and a nerve fiber through which electrical pulses are sent. These pulses send signals to other neurons, or to cells like our muscles and organs. This requires a lot of energy, so neurons are packed with mitochondria and are highly dependent on them functioning properly.
Our nervous system can be thought of like an electrical network, with our brain as a computer and our 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.
There are a wide range of conditions that can affect our nervous system. Known as neurological disorders, they can result in the gradual loss of control of our muscles, organs or our cognitive ability. As with many other conditions, we are realizing more and more that there is a very strong link between potentially serious health conditions of the nervous system and the health of our mitochondria.
MitoQ is able to cross the nervous system’s main defense membrane called the blood-brain barrier. This means it can actively target the billions of mitochondria in our brain like no other antioxidant supplement can. MitoQ helps restore the CoQ10 antioxidant arsenal within our mitochondria, helping them to fight free radical damage and run like a well-oiled machine. Properly functioning mitochondria provide our neurons with the energy they need to help keep our bodies active, and our minds focused and sharp.
