Our livers are responsible for as many as 500 different functions within our bodies. They are involved in digestion, detoxification and blood recycling, and act as chemical factories and storage units. The liver supports almost every other organ in the body and is our largest internal organ. Playing this crucial role requires a lot of energy which means that liver cells are packed with mitochondria, as many as 2000 in each cell. All of this activity also leaves our livers prone to damage from toxins, infections and other conditions.
When our mitochondria start to decline with age or illness, our livers can sometimes bear the brunt of this. Without our mitochondria running at 100%, our livers aren’t able to effectively detoxify our blood or properly metabolize the food we eat. This can lead to a host of issues both within the liver itself, and in our other organs. Similarly, over-consumption of alcohol or a poor diet can lead to liver damage and conditions that have been linked to mitochondrial dysfunction.
MitoQ® Liver is a revolution in liver support, containing a proprietary formulation of MitoQ®, Siliphos Milk Thistle, Selenium and Vitacholine. MitoQ® recharges our mitochondria with targeted antioxidants, which helps to neutralize free radicals and the damage they can do to our cells. This can help our liver cells to function at full capacity and perform their huge number of tasks optimally. Siliphos Milk Thistle is a special formulation that absorbs several times more effectively than standard milk thistle, and works as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory in liver cells. Selenium is an essential micronutrient shown to boost natural antioxidant enzyme levels in the liver. Choline is an essential dietary nutrient for cell repair. A diet deficient in choline has been linked to liver conditions.
Taken daily in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise, MitoQ® Liver can help protect against oxidative stress and safely support normal liver function.
Our livers are like a complex factory, responsible for metabolizing the food we eat, detoxifying and recycling our blood, and processing and manufacturing many of the body’s chemicals. They store glucose and vitamins, produce proteins and immune factors and clear our blood of drugs and other harmful substances. This vital organ supports all of our body systems and as such, liver cells have very high numbers of mitochondria.
These mitochondria are the main energy source for the liver and play a major role in controlling its normal function. When mitochondrial function starts to decline because of illness or aging, the mitochondria aren’t able to properly control these functions, provide sufficient energy or fight free radical damage.
When free radicals attack our cells, it is known as oxidative stress. Free radicals are produced as a by-product of the energy generation inside mitochondria. When mitochondria are functioning normally, oxidative stress is controlled by antioxidants such as CoQ10. When mitochondrial function declines, free radicals attack the delicate mitochondrial membranes and eventually leak out into the cell where they cause further damage. Left unchecked this can cause the cells to begin to die and lead to a variety of liver conditions. Over-consumption of alcohol and some drugs can also lead to oxidative stress conditions in the liver, as can certain infections.
Although the liver is very good at regenerating its tissues, the damage can reach a point of no return. Reducing oxidative stress due to illness or lifestyle is the best way to ensure ongoing normal liver function. MitoQ® is a mitochondria-targeted antioxidant product which actively delivers the antioxidant CoQ10 directly into mitochondria where it can help fight oxidative stress. When oxidative stress is reduced by MitoQ®, our mitochondria can get on with the task of regulating and providing energy to our livers.
MitoQ® Liver is a revolutionary blend of ingredients scientifically proven to assist in normal liver function. MitoQ® boosts the natural levels of CoQ10 in our mitochondria, helping to fight oxidative stress and boost cellular energy levels. Siliphos Milk Thistle, Selenium and Vitacholine have all been shown to have significant supportive antioxidant effects in liver cells. Taken daily in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise, MitoQ® Liver can help protect against oxidative stress and safely support normal liver function.
