How does my body produce energy?
Energy is generated within the mitochondria, which are microscopic football-shaped structures inside cells.
Mitochondria are the power source for all cellular functions; imagine microscopic red-hot power generators, with sparks flying. The sparks represent free radicals popping out in every direction.
The free radicals generated can cause severe damage to mitochondria, but also radiate outward from the mitochondria to damage all cellular structures, including the functional machinery of the cell and DNA.
Cells could not survive without a ready supply of antioxidants to curtail free radical damage. While cells do generate antioxidants, they don’t generate enough to combat the effects of oxidative stress. Because of this, cells are heavily dependent on dietary sources of antioxidants for limiting cellular damage and protecting mitochondria.
Natural ingredients to protect & improve your energy:
Glutathione is an essential antioxidant that supports mitochondrial resistance to free radical damage during the generation of energy. The liver also uses glutathione to neutralize toxins and remove them from the body. A healthy diet supports formation of healthy levels of glutathione within cells of the body and also in the liver, but supplementation can also play a vital role.
Setria™ Glutathione is a pure, allergen-free form that is manufactured through a proprietary fermentation process. Its three primary benefits are: antioxidant protection, detoxification, and immune support.
Setria™ Glutathione supports detoxification systems of the liver and intestinal system.
Setria™ Glutathione supports the white blood cells of the immune system (including T cell lymphocytes), which are the body’s frontline of defense.
N-acetyl Cysteine (NAC)
NAC is a potent antioxidant that is essential for the formation of glutathione inside cells. NAC supports the immune system, nerve tissue, liver function, collagen formation, and lung tissue.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
A potent antioxidant with the unique property of being both water and fat soluble. Therefore, it is easily absorbed and works with antioxidants already present inside cells to support cells in their fight against free radical damage. It also supports liver function and nerve function.
Vitamin C provides almost too many functions to list, but most important are its antioxidant properties. When combined with other antioxidants, vitamin C offers a high degree of protection. Vitamin C is an essential collagen supporter.
Optimal tissue levels of NAC, lipoic acid, and vitamin C support glutathione in the body.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
CoQ10 is a key component of the machinery responsible for producing energy within the mitochondria. CoQ10 also inhibits free radical damage to cellular and mitochondrial membranes. The highest concentrations in the body are found in the heart, liver, kidney and pancreas.
