OPTI MITO FORCE TOTAL ANTIOXIDANT, 60 caps - OPTIMAL HEALTH SYSTEMS
Opti-Mito-Force contains organic whole food vitamins, minerals and herbs that promote optimal mitochondrial function.
Mitochondria are known as the powerhouses of the cell. They take in nutrients, break them down, and create energy for the cell. The process of creating cell energy is known as cellular respiration. Most of the chemical reactions involved in cellular respiration happen in the mitochondria.
The form of pyrroloquinoline quinone found in Opti-Mito-Force is called Opti-PQQ and is a special methylated form blended with the OHS cultured media.
- Mitochondrial dysfunction has been definitively linked to virtually all killer diseases of aging, from Alzheimer’s disease and type 2 diabetes to heart failure
- Researchers have recorded evidence of greater mitochondrial damage in the brain cells of humans over 70 compared to those in their early 40's
- Many scientists believe mitochondrial longevity determines overall longevity
- A next-generation coenzyme is being introduced in Opti-Mito-Force called pyrroloquinoline quinone or PQQ that has been shown to induce mitochondrial biogenesis—the growth of new mitochondria in aging cells
- While CoQ10 optimizes mitochondrial function, PQQ activates genes that govern mitochondrial reproduction, protection, and repair
- PQQ also offers potent cardio protection and defense against neuronal (brain) degeneration.
In addition to producing energy‚ mitochondria may also play a part in controlling the amount of calcium that moves in and out of your cells. Each of your cells contains thousands of mitochondria‚ with the exact number being
dependent upon the type of jobs that cell performs. Your muscle cells‚ for example‚ need a large supply of energy‚ and this means that they need a large number of mitochondria.
If your cells aren’t getting the energy they need to survive‚ they can create more mitochondria. However‚ they can only do this if they have all the vitamins and minerals needed to perform this process. If you regularly participate in endurance sports such as marathon running or cycling‚ you’ll need an especially substantial supply of energy. That’s why it makes sense to provide your cells with all the vitamins and minerals they need to boost mitochondria levels. You may also want your cells to produce more mitrochondria if you’re trying to burn off excess body fat. You can give your cells the nutrients they need to make mitrochondria by eating a well balanced diet.
