Our Aging Mitochondria
Over 350 studies published last year alone underscore what Life Extension® has emphasized for nearly four decades: age-related mitochondrial dysfunction plays a central role in virtually all killer diseases of aging. Specific nutrients Life Extension® members take, like CoQ10, lipoic acid, and carnitine, promote the health and function of existing mitochondria. Just as critical is the need for every aging person to generate more mitochondria in order to protect against degenerative decline. In a historic scientific breakthrough, a natural coenzyme called PQQ (pyrroloquinoline quinone) has been shown to trigger the formation of new mitochondria in aging cells!
