Every cell in your body contains from 10,000 to 30,000 mitochondria. Mitochondria, the units responsible for the cell’s energy production, need specific nutrients to function properly. Cellular Energy contains the nutrients that are most significant for mitochondrial function.
ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid)
ALA is an antioxidant produced in the body that is both fat and water soluble. It is important for ridding the body of harmful substances and prevention of cellular damage.
NAC (N-Acetyl cysteine)
NAC is a precursor to glutathione which is the body’s most important cellular antioxidant. It is not found in food but is made by the body from the amino acid cysteine, which is found in high protein foods. Low glutathione levels can contribute to a number of illnesses.
CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10)
CoQ10 is found in the body and is a very important antioxidant that is necessary for energy production in the cells. Lack of CoQ10 is a contributing factor in many chronic diseases such as heart failure, morbid obesity, hypertension, and diabetes.
L-Carnitine is produced in the liver and kidneys and is considered a “conditional essential nutrient” because an individual’s need for it may be higher than the body’s ability to produce it. It is used to transport long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of the cells which is then converted into energy.
Activin Grapeseed Extract
Studies have shown that grape seeds help to increase the level of antioxidants in the blood. They also contain high concentrations of Vitamin E, flavonoids and linoleic acid.
Magnesium is needed for almost every organ in the body and studies have shown that a majority are deficient in it. It contributes to energy production, activates enzymes and helps regulate other nutrients such as calcium, zinc Vitamin D and copper. It is necessary for producing new cells, bone protein and fatty acids. It also helps to clot blood, relax muscles and for insulin secretion and response.
