Mitochondria, free radicals and antioxidants made simple.

"It’s as simple as this – if our cells don’t get the energy they need, they can’t do all the jobs they’re tasked with. That’s why our mitochondria are so important."

Our bodies contain trillions of cells. Inside each of them are huge numbers of tiny, energy-producing power plants called “mitochondria”. Mitochondria convert the food we eat and the air we breathe into “ATP”, a special type of fuel that powers our cells, and in turn, us.

However, there is a battle raging inside our cells. One of the reasons mitochondrial function declines with age is because of free radicals, the by-product of the energy generation process. Because mitochondria are at the heart of this process, they're much more exposed to free radicals than the rest of the cell - so they stack themselves with the body's own antioxidant CoQ10 to protect themselves.

As we get older, the natural level of CoQ10 in our bodies declines. The free radicals start to damage the mitochondrial membrane where the energy process happens. Less energy is generated, the cells don't function as well - you can see the problem.

MitoQ is a true breakthrough as the only antioxidant which can effectively target and recharge our own cellular batteries, mitochondria. MitoQ neutralizes harmful free radicals at the source, before they get the chance to get out and damage our cells.

By adding MitoQ to your balanced lifestyle, you can begin to put the brakes on the ageing process and feel younger for longer.

If we can get antioxidants into the mitochondria then the cells will work better. Just as they did when we were younger.
