All cells in our bodies contain tiny organelles called mitochondria that function to produce cellular energy by means of the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) cycle. The number of mitochondria in a cell varies widely by organism and by tissue type. A human cell can have from a few to several thousand mitochondria.
One of the most serious events that cause the loss of cellular vitality is the depletion of mitochondrial energy-producing function. Cells require healthy mitochondrial activity to perform life-sustaining metabolic processes. As mitochondrial function weakens in our cells, so does the vitality of organs such as the heart and brain or in some cases, the entire body.
In order for the mitochondria to create the energy needed to sustain cellular function, fatty acids (which serve as the mitochondria's fuel) must be transported through the cell membrane and into the mitochondria.
Life Extension members now have access to a state-of-the-art nutritional formula called Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer with BioPQQ® that not only protects delicate cellular structures and enables cells to perform life-sustaining metabolic processes . . . it also helps generate new mitochondria. This formula is designed to counteract age-related structural and functional changes and promote biogenesis with these unique ingredients:
Taking all of these ingredients separately would be prohibitively expensive. Life Extension members can benefit from all of them in this one cost-effective, comprehensive formulation to promote mitochondrial structure, function and formation.
