Mitochondria

  • Defeating Disease with Energy

    "The cell's mitochondria generate 90% of a body's energy. Could scientists harness that power to fight disease and perhaps even aging?"

    Mitochondria are at the heart of everything we do here at MitoQ. MitoQ is a true breakthrough as the only antioxidant which can effectively target and recharge our mitochondria, so we were excited to read this article from Scientific American about a deeper understanding of Mitochondrial Dysfunction and Mitochondrial DNA.

  • What is: Matrixyl Synthe ‘6

    There are numerous reasons why, as we age, our skin starts to sag and fine lines and wrinkles begin to form. These can be external factors like time spent in the sun, smoking, drinking, weight loss and stress. Or internal factors such as the production of collagen and elastin declining in the skin.

    Introducing Matrixyl Synthe ‘6, the powerful new wrinkle reversing ingredient that fills in wrinkles from the inside both on the forehead and around the eyes (the crow’s feet) for visibly smoother and plumper skin. Continue reading

  • How exercise rejuvenates cells, extending lifespan

    New research provides a window into how, on a cellular level, exercise can improve muscle health and, ultimately, exercise capacity, which is "the best predictor of mortality in the general population."

    new study published in the journal Nature Communications describes how exercise helps the body to keep the cells in the muscles healthy and strong.

    "Whether muscle is healthy or not really determines whether the entire body is healthy or not," says lead researcher Prof. Zhen Yan, of the University of Virginia School of Medicine in Charlottesville.

    "And exercise capacity, mainly determined by muscle size and function," he adds, "is the best predictor of mortality in the general population."

  • Are you running out of steam?

    The older we get, the more we notice our body just doesn’t function the way it used to. We get wrinkles in our skin and take longer to recover from injuries and illness. We also find it harder to maintain our bodyweight, and tests can often show our blood sugar and cholesterol levels creeping upwards. Perhaps one of the most telling signs however, is that we run out of steam faster. We just don’t have the energy reserves that we did when we were younger. With today’s hectic lifestyle, kids to look after and busy jobs to maintain, this can become an issue in which we always find ourselves playing catch up.

  • 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.

  • 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.
