As we age, the energy manufacturing organelles of the cell are damaged from exposure to harmful oxidative byproducts of cellular metabolism and from an increasingly toxic external environment.
Dr. Bruce Ames, of the University of California-Berkley, began investigating the problem in the late 1990s, and the results are encouraging. Dr Ames was interviewed in 2011 in Life Extension Magazine, and shared his exciting results.
Apparently, the same combination of antioxidant nutrients that are so important in the treatment of type II diabetes are equally important to stop and reverse oxidative damage at the mitochondrial level.
Acetyl l-Carnetine and Alpha Lipoic acid, when taken together, allow old rats with mitochondrial damage to display healing changes where these mitochondria begin to look more like the mitochondria of younger rats. As a result, the old rats displayed more energy and better memory. Preliminary human trials are suggesting that this combination of antioxidants has the same effect on people.
For those of us who are getting older, that’s very good news.
I started taking this product years ago because the research shows that it helps the liver with its task of detoxification. So, along with being a primary support for type II diabetics and a major player in helping the body deal with a toxic environment, it now also helps rejuvenate the mitochondria, resulting in increased energy and improved memory… and at Preventics prices, it’s cheap.
