As we age, a variety of stressors to our system take a toll on the total count of the very important mitochondria; and as nutritional status declines and disease status increases, the nutritional co-factors that support this entire important process decline as well.
We can slow down the damaging effects of aging process by living a healthy lifestyle, eating nutritional foods and doing moderate exercise everyday.
Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) – ATP is the basic unit of cellular energy – the unit that allows all energy-dependent cellular function to occur in a healthy manner – and is a core-level and basic component of every greater tissue, organ and function in the body. As levels of this important “unit” degrade, so does the health of every organ, system, our metabolism and our vitality.
Early in life we have an abundant supply of the cellular organelles called mitochondria. The mitochondria house the biochemical pathways called oxidative phosphorylation that produce this precious unit. Further, we have an adequate supply of the nutritional co-factors that support these biochemical pathways. The result?
An abundant supply of the life-giving basic unit of cellular energy, ATP. In this ideal state of young and vital health, we experience an abundance of energy, a reasonable metabolism and freedom from chronic degenerative illness.
As we age, a variety of stressors to our system take a toll on the total count of the very important mitochondria; and as nutritional status declines and disease status increases, the nutritional co-factors that support this entire important process decline as well. This unfortunate collection of circumstances results in less and less ATP for our bodies to use to support overall health, as well as a healthy, robust metabolism.
Trans-Resveratrol is an herbal extract that supports the production of more mitochondria. Mitochondria is the “powerhouse” of the cell, where energy is made.
D-Ribose is a nutrient that serves as the structural building block for the energy itself
Ubiquinol is a nutrient that serves as the necessary nutritional cofactor in the production of energy. It is a special form of reduced CoQ10 that supports energy production in the mitochondria.
