MitoCORE Protein Blend
The body’s cells and organ systems depend on an adequate supply of energy to function optimally. The mitochondria, known as the power house of the cell, contain nutrients and enzymes that are important for cellular energy metabolism, including those that convert food to usable energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP functions as the key source of energy for all cells. In order to increase mitochondrial output, there must be adequate fuel supply for combustion and abundant antioxidants to scavenge free radical by-products. Preserving our energy reserves and increasing energy output is a critical part of maintaining optimal health.
There are many things that can drain energy reserves. Lack of sleep, too much stress, poor nutrition, and prescription medications can draw on our energy reserves using them up faster than they can be replenished. Even the vital biologic systems relied on to maintain health can create an energy deficit that needs to be restored.
Mitocore Protein Blend is a combination of micronutrients and clean macronutrition designed to increase energy production, maximize antioxidant capacity, support detoxification, and strengthen immune response. In addition, it delivers energy-enhancing micronutrients in a nourishing base of easy-to-digest protein from brown rice for better cellular nutrition.
Mix each scoop in 8 oz. of cold water. Stir vigorously or shake in a closed container.
The primary ingredient that increases cellular energy production at the mitochondrial level is acetyl-L-carnitine. It increases the ow of free fatty acids into the mitochondria, directly boosting energy production. When certain micronutrients are combined with optimal amounts of acetyl-L-carnitine, the mixture can be used as a high-octane fuel supplement to enhance mitochondrial energy production and produce signicant results.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Believed to be one of the cell’s most versatile and important antioxidants, alpha lipoic acid works to help quench free radicals that are generated when cells are under oxidative stress. Alpha lipoic acid, when combined with other vitamins and minerals, works maximally to support immune, hepatic and nervous systems, and also recharges vitamin E, vitamin C and glutathione— other key antioxidants in the body.
Studies performed at Stanford University have shown that when this potent antioxidant is supplemented, there is a significant contribution to overall health.
With the addition of an “optimized backbone” of antioxidant vitamins and minerals, the health and energy output of mitochondria are maximally supported and enhanced. When mitochondria are under stress, it is important to maintain high levels of micronutrients to maintain homeostasis.
