Did you know that the heart is the hardest working organ in your body, beating 100,000 times per day to pump blood through 90,000km of blood vessels? Each heart cell has thousands of mitochondria, tiny structures that convert the energy from food into a form that cells can use.

Just like our skin, mitochondria undergo oxidative damage with age, stress and pollution and when they are damaged they're unable to produce as much energy. Mitochondria also need CoQ10 to produce the energy required for the heart to function optimally. The body's endogenous CoQ10 is also depleted with age and even more with statins. As a result, the heart may not have the energy it needs to function as it did when it was younger.

The good news is that this oxidative damage can be reduced. A recent study by the Department of Integrative Physiology at University of Colorado and MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit, Cambridge, on MitoQ a mitochondria-targeted antioxidant , showed it supported healthy endothelial function in elderly mice to help them function like young mice. The research team gave old mice water containing MitoQ for four weeks, to compare their artery function with younger mice. The study's point of difference is that it used an antioxidant that accumulated inside mitochondria   hundreds of  times more  than other CoQ10 supplements.

To put that into a human context, MitoQ Heart supplement helps to reduce  mitochondrial oxidative damage and helps power the heart to get it working like it did when it was younger. It is a mitochondria-targeted antioxidant that protects and restores function to the mitochondria.

Ruth McLaughlin bought MitoQ for her father, 76, to support his heart health, after noticing that he had "started to slow down." After nine months on the supplements, tangible lifestyle improvements included him rising at 6am to cook breakfast; his walking speed; dancing; and increased energy that allowed him to play with his grandchildren. "Overall he is happier, livelier and more enthusiastic about things than we've seen him in a long while." McLaughlin says.

Mary Byrnem, 57, had only been taking MitoQ to support normal blood pressure for four months before she began to notice a difference. " I could finally endure an entire exercise class without being wiped out for the next two days," says Byrnem. "I haven't been this fit and healthy in a long time."
