New Formula Combines Antioxidant Powerhouses for Mitochondrial Support
Submitted by Natalie Shamitko
Mitochondria are the cellular components responsible for generating the energy required to sustain life. Because mitochondria serve as the powerhouse of the cell, their proper functioning is essential to the integrity and optimal performance of our bodies. Free radicals are normal byproducts of mitochondrial respiratory chain function. However, they can be damaging when produced in excessive amounts and not neutralized by naturally occurring antioxidants. Antioxidants are essential to longevity support due to their ability to neutralize free radicals as a result of oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is also thought to contribute to the aging process due to damage to cells, lipids, and DNA. Cumulative oxidative stress caused by free radicals is a major cause of mitochondrial dysfunction.†
Research performed by scientists has demonstrated that as we age, the efficiency of the mitochondria diminishes, as does their quantity per cell. This effect can then alter the optimal performance of the brain and central nervous system, thus having the potential to affect the activities of all organs throughout the body, as well as mental acuity and mood. Juvenon® Pro Longevity provides a unique combination of ingredients to support healthy aging. It contains the patented combination of acetyl-L-carnitine, lipoic acid, and biotin that has been the focus of research by Dr. Bruce Ames and an award-winning team of scientists at the University of California, Berkley. This patented, scientifically researched combination** supports healthy gene expression and mitochondrial function.
Juvenon® Pro Longevity contains a compound known to stimulate the synthesis of a key component of the mitochondria. Without the proper synthesis of this component, the mitochondrion is not able to function at maximum capability. The Juvenon® Pro Longevity composition can also support the body's production of energy to optimally support muscle contraction and neurotransmission.
Additionally, maqui berry and astaxanthin are included in this formula to provide powerful antioxidant activity. Astaxanthin has gained great attention lately for its ability to effectively scavenge free radicals and support multiple health functions as a "super" carotenoid. Maqui berries have about twice the antioxidant capacity of acai berries due to the abundance of polyphenol and anthocyanin content.
