MitoQ 5mg 60 Capsules Tripple Pack - Free Priority Ship
Discovered at the University of Otago, New Zealand, MitoQ is a NEW third generation CoQ10 that targets the energy generating organelles in your cells – your mitochondria. MitoQ is considered a significant advance in antioxidant technology designed to improve mitochondrial function to deliver health-giving energy to your cells and organs, and, to slow the aging process.
MitoQ is a ground-breaking product which supports youthful energy levels and can reduce the free radical damage which contributes to many of the symptoms of aging and various health problems. With its unique action, MitoQ supports the health of the trillions of cells in your body like nothing else can.
How can MitoQ benefit you?
MitoQ protects your cells from damaging free radicals ensuring they stay healthy and full of energy. MitoQ is absorbed throughout your body, recharging your cells from head to toe. Taken daily in combination with a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle, MitoQ can have the following benefits:
Reduces the free radical damage which can lead to the visible and internal signs of aging
Supports youthful levels of cellular energy which supports healthy cell growth and repair
Supports heart and circulatory function, including normal blood pressure
Supports brain health and cognitive function including focus and mental clarity
Supports kidney, liver and digestive system health
Supports normal immune system responses and function
Supports the health of your muscles, joints and skin
MitoQ is water soluble and has excellent absorption with high bioavailability. CoQ10 is not water soluble and has low bioavailability.
MitoQ doesn't need to be taken with food unlike CoQ10.
MitoQ very quickly reaches peak concentrations in the body, unlike CoQ10.
Almost all of MitoQ is rapidly and extensively taken up into your mitochondria by an active process, unlike CoQ10 where less than 5% actually penetrates the mitochondria.
MitoQ requires very small doses due to excellent absorption and bioavailability (10mg) cf. CoQ10 requires up to1000mg
MitoQ is an effective antioxidant due to superior absorption and rapid recycling back to active form.
7. MitoQ has widespread and efficient uptake by the body signaling significant potential in improving human health!
How does MitoQ work?
Inside each of our cells are huge numbers of tiny, energy-producing power plants called “mitochondria”. Mitochondria convert the food we eat and the air we breathe into the energy that powers our cells, and in turn, us. When mitochondria produce this energy, they also produce damaging by-products known as free radicals. Luckily our mitochondria and cells are packed with antioxidants which can neutralize free radicals before they can do too much damage. However, as we age, or when we are unwell, our antioxidant supply diminishes and the free radicals start to take an ever-increasing toll on our cells.
MitoQ is a true breakthrough as it is the only antioxidant which can effectively target and recharge our own cellular batteries, mitochondria. MitoQ neutralizes harmful free radicals at the source before they get the chance to get out and damage our cells. This means our cells can get on with their job of producing all the energy we need to keep us healthy and active.

Mitochondria are one of the most important components of a cell. Without them, many crucial biochemical processes would not happen. Not only do they host cellular respiration, the process by which our bodies convert food into energy for the cell, they also send messages to other components within the cell, tailor the cell to perform specific functions, and control both cell growth and cell self-destruction. Being responsible for so much comes at a cost. Biochemical reactions generate free radicals as by-products. While free radicals do have some important benefits when present in the right numbers, overproduction of free radicals can lead to severe damage of the cell. Unfortunately, over production commonly occurs. Aging, exposure to environmental toxins and pollution and a poor diet can all increase levels of free radicals in our body or cause underproduction of our body's own antioxidants, such as coenzyme Q10 (Co Q10). When free radicals are left unchecked this can lead to oxidative stress. Which is why developing compounds that target mitochondria makes a lot of sense. Because so many different biochemical processes occur within mitochondria, they generate a lot of free radicals. Mito-Q is a revolutionary mitochondrial-targeted compound that acts directly in mitochondria as an antioxidant against free radicals. MitoQ is produced by binding a form of Co Q10 called ubiquinone, to a fat soluble, positively-charged molecule. This positively charged molecule is able to flow directly into the mitochondria and through the normally impermeable inner membrane to end up deep inside the mitochondria. The inside of the mitochondria and inner membrane is the major site for biochemical reactions inside the mitochondria, including cellular respiration. This puts MitoQ exactly where it is needed the most, at concentrations several hundred-fold higher than if it just stayed in the blood. A reaction inside the inner membrane converts the ubiquinone in MitoQ into ubiquinol, the antioxidant and active form of Co Q10. This allows it to neutralise free radicals that accumulate within the mitochondria. MitoQ is one of the most-studied mitochondrial-targeted antioxidants. Research has shown that after oral administration, MitoQ rapidly accumulates in mitochondria-rich tissue such as the heart, brain, skeletal muscle, liver, and kidney and supports a range of conditions associated with oxidative stress. You can boost your own natural levels of Co Q10 with MitoQ. When taken alongside a healthy diet and exercise it can reduce damage to your cells inflicted by free radicals.
