Top 5 Supplements For Healthy Mitochondrial Function

Top 5 Supplements For Healthy Mitochondrial Function

Think of mitochondria like batteries.

They're the energy producing power plants within our cells.

They generate the majority of the ATP (adenosine triphosphate) that our cells use for energy to complete everyday tasks like walking, sprinting, working, talking, etc.

In short, mitochondria are required in order for us to do anything.

We want as many of them as possible. And we want them to be as healthy and efficient as possible. 

How Can You Boost Mitochondria?

With mitochondria playing such a pivotal role in our length and quality of life, protecting their function and finding ways to support them are worthwhile pursuits for those of looking optimize vitality.

We introduced 5 natural ways to boost mitochondria in this post.

5 Natural Supplements That Support Healthy Mitochondrial Function

1. BioPQQ

Human trials suggest that supplementing with BioPQQ (polyquinoline quinone) might promote Mitochondrial biogenisis (the creation of new mitochondria).  

Increased numbers of mitochondria means more potential energy. This is revolutionary for you and your cells, especially in areas like your heart and brain where we can find the highest concentration of mitochondria in your body.

This one reason our Brain Optimizer MycoMIND (featuring Lion's Mane Mushroom + BioPQQ) has quickly become a top-seller.

2. Magnesium

Magnesium is a crucial nutrient for mitochondria.

Most data suggests that as many as 80% of Americans are not getting adequate levels of this important co-factor needed for our mitochondrial enzymes to function properly.

Optimize your magnesium levels with the only magnesium compound that can actually cross the blood-brain barrier and increase brain concentrations of magnesium: magnesium-l-threonate.

This is the backbone of our MagTech formulation, along with magnesium glycinate and magnesium taurate for a calm mind, and deep, restorative sleep.

3. B-Vitamins

The entire family of B-vitamins are important co-factors needed for your mitochondrial enzymes to function properly - especially nicotinamide.

Nicotinamide (a form of Vitamin B-3) has been linked to:

  • Enhanced mitochondrial quality [1]
  • Support of normal, healthy mitochondrial function [2]
  • Supports healthy aging [3]

4. Nitric Oxide Boosters

Multiple studies have linked the vasodilator Nitric Oxide to mitochondrial health. [4,5,6]

Traditionally, L-Arginine has been the preferred supplement for increasing NO in the human body, but new research has shown L-Citrulline (in GABA Brain Food) to be superior for increasing NO. [7,8,9,10]

5. Alpha-lipoic-Acid

Alpha Lipoic Acid has been shown to support healthy mitochondrial aging and has been linked to healthy cognition through the aging process. [11
