Mitochondria produce cellular energy and mitochondrial damage is implicated in all known diseases. Providing dosages of nutrients shown in studies to reverse mitochondrial damage and increase energy production is important for optimal physiological function and for living a vibrant, healthy life. And since mitochondria exist in nearly every cell in the body, enhancing mitochondrial health positively affects all body systems.
Dr. Neustadt was recognized by the world's largest medical publisher, Elsevier, as being a Top Ten Cited Author for his work on mitochondrial damage and molecular pathways of disease. MitoForte is based on Dr. Neustadt's research. MitoForte's ingredients have been shown to improve memory, energy and mood by 60% of more.
Huperzine A, an extract from the plant, Huperzia serrata has been used in China for centuries for various ailments, including boosting memory. Extensive research in last twenty years has defined Huperzine A as a powerful compound for improving memory. Clinical trials show Huperzine A (400 micrograms per day) improves memory and mental function in people with memory loss and dementia. Huperzine A has been established as a proven way to promote "factual memory," "recognition," "association", and "accumulation" in people complaining of memory loss.
L-Carnitine is required to shuttle fats into the mitochondria for beta-oxidation of those fats to produce energy. L-carnitine has been shown to increase energy, decrease serum triglycerides, promote heart health in patients with cardiovascular disease, improve insulin resistance, and improve immune function. L-carnitine has been extensively studied for its ability to increase mitochondrial energy production and improve exercise tolerance in athletes.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is the acetyl form of L-carnitine. ALCAR crosses the blood-brain barrier and improves mitochondrial function in the central nervous system. It decreases oxidative damage to the hippocampus. Damage to the hippocampus causes memory loss. ALCAR improves mitochondrial energy production in the brain and has been shown to improve memory.
Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is both a water soluble and lipid soluble antioxidant. It is also a required cofactor for the pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) complex for the production of cellular energy from carbohydrates via glycolysis. ALA decreases inflammation, protects against free radical injury to cells, increases cellular energy production, improves insulin resistance in people with metabolic syndrome and diabetes, improves memory when used in conjunction with ALCAR, and decreases complications from diabetes.
N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) increases glutathione (GSH) production, which is the body's major endogenous antioxidant. As such, NAC helps quench free radicals to prevent damage to mitochondria.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) root standardized is a powerful antioxidant that directly quenches free radicals and also increases GSH production to prevent mitochondrial damage.
