What is MitoQ?

MitoQ is a true breakthrough as the only antioxidant which can effectively target, enter and restore and re-energize our own energy-producing cellular batteries, mitochondria.

Watch this short video to meet Phil and his friend Slim and find out how they team together to keep your cells healthy. It's amazing science and it's a world first.

MitoQ is a special patented formulation of the antioxidant CoQ10 with significantly superior absorption compared to standard CoQ10/ubiquinol.- MitoQ neutralizes harmful free radicals at the source (the mitochondria), before they get the chance to get out and damage our cells.

Two New Zealand biochemists in the late 1990s realized that because mitochondria have a significant negative charge compared to the rest of the cell, attaching the right positively-charged molecule to CoQ10 should finally solve the absorption problem.

MitoQ combines a shortened version of CoQ10- which can penetrate the previously impermeable mitochondrial membrane, with a positive charge- which makes MitoQ instantly attractive to the negatively charged mitochondria. These unique properties mean that MitoQ is absorbed directly into your mitochondria hundreds of times more effectively than regular CoQ10 supplements, delivering a payload of free radical defense, right where it is needed.

By restoring the mitochondrial free radical defense system, you can achieve the double benefit of restoring mitochondrial performance and reducing the risk of free radical leakage into the cell. This supports optimal energy production within the mitochondria, recharging the energy levels in your cells and organs, helping them to work as well as they can.

Here are some of the benefits you may see by investing in your mitochondrial health:

  • maintaining energy levels to give you the stamina to avoid that afternoon crash and keep enjoying your favorite activities.
  • Alongside healthy lifestyle choices, support for blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol within normal levels can help to lower your cardiovascular risk factors.
  • Healthy liver and kidney function supports natural detoxification and normal metabolic function.
  • Supporting healthy brain and nervous system function helps you sustain mental clarity and alertness as you age.
  • Sustaining healthy energy production in your muscles, joints and other connective tissues can help you stay strong and fit for longer, recover from physical exercise faster and may reduce risk of injury.
  • Support for balanced immune and allergic pathways can help to normalize the potentially damaging effects of the body’s natural responses to both harmful and normal stimuli.
  • Supporting normal lung function helps you to breathe easy and actively pursue your favorite activities.
  • Reducing oxidative stress from both internal and environmental sources can lead to a slowing in the visible signs of aging in your skin.
  • Investing in your cellular health gives you the peace-of-mind that you are making smart choices for living a healthier, longer and more vibrant life.
