Reduce inflamation, increase longevity and improve energy levels
Our mitochondria are essential for cellular energy production, play a key role in longevity, and a healthy metabolism. Poorly functioning mitochondria are also the main source of free radicals, which can damage cells and contribute to ageing.
As we approach our 40s many of the organic molecules that help the mitochondria work efficiently start to decline leading to poorly functioning mitochondria. Poorly functioning mitochondria’s are now being closely linked to chronic fatigue syndrome, Here are some of the supplements I take myself.
CoQ10: This is a coenzyme that is essential for energy production in the mitochondria. It is also a powerful antioxidant that can help protect the mitochondria from damage.
NMN: is a precursor to NAD+, which is essential for mitochondrial function. NAD+ helps to regulate mitochondrial energy production and metabolism, as well as to protect mitochondria from damage. As we age, our NAD+ levels decline, which can lead to mitochondrial dysfunction and a decline in energy production. NMN can help to reverse this decline by increasing NAD+ levels.
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC): This is an amino acid that helps to protect the mitochondria from damage. It also helps to recycle NADH and CoQ10.
L-carnitine: This is an amino acid that helps transport fatty acids into the mitochondria for energy production. It also helps to recycle NADH, which is another coenzyme that is essential for energy production.
Alpha-lipoic acid: This is a powerful antioxidant that can help protect the mitochondria from damage. It also helps to recycle NADH and CoQ10.
In order for these supplements to be effective it is important to eat a nutrient dense diet that allows for the supplements to be recycled and effective.
Please consult a medical professional before taking.
