MitoCORE® Protein Blend is a scientifically formulated blend of nutrients and protein, specifically designed to recharge cellular energy production, increase antioxidant protection, support detoxification capacity, and support immune function.
- Recharges Cellular Energy Production
- Supports Immune Function
- Increases Antioxidant Protection
- Supports Detoxification Capacity
Lack of sleep, too much stress, poor nutrition and prescription medications can draw on energy reserves, using them up faster than they can be replenished. Even the vital biologic systems can create an energy deficit that needs to be restored.
Based on peer-reviewed, double-blind research, MitoCORE® Protein Blend provides a unique blend of acetyl L-carnitine, alpha lipoic acid and N-acetyl cysteine. All have been shown to support immune function and energy output. MitoCORE® Protein Blend also includes key micronutrients and phytonutrients, including green tea, broccoli seed extract and resveratrol, to protect the mitochondria and continually recharge the cycle of energy production. The protein addition allows an ease of nutrition for those with immune challenges. MitoCORE® Protein Blend is available in delicious strawberry and lemon flavors.
Mix 1 scoop of MitoCORE® Protein Blend with 8-10 ounces of the beverage of your choice to the desired thickness, once daily or as recommended by your health care professional.
Acetyl L-carnitine is an amino acid that is associated with recharged cellular energy production. It has been shown to increase the flow of free fatty acids, the fuel source for mitochondria, resulting in a significant boost in energy production. ALC has been shown to recharge cellular energy production and has been found, in combination with lipoic acid, to lower oxidative stress.
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is an antioxidant that scavenges free radicals and supports detoxification capacity. NAC has been shown to increase production of glutathione, an important antioxidant in the body. In addition to its antioxidant activity, glutathione supports immune function by activating T-cells.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant and also plays a synergistic role in recharging other antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, CoQ10 and glutathione. Lipoic acid also plays a key role in supporting detoxification capacity.
Resveratrol is a polyphenol molecule found in many plant species, including grapes and cranberries, and is found in high concentrations in wine. In addition to its antioxidant properties and support for cardiovascular function, resveratrol has been shown to support immune function.
Broccoli Seed Extract
Broccoli seed extract contains a high amount of glucoraphanin, a compound that is a precursor to sulphoraphane. Sulphoraphane is an antioxidant and supports detoxification capacity and immune response.
Green Tea (EGCG)
Green tea polyphenols have demonstrated significant antioxidant, probiotic- and immune-supporting properties. Green tea polyphenols also stimulate the activity of liver detoxification enzymes, supporting detoxification capacity.
The Micronutrient "Backbone"
To recharge cellular energy production efficiently, optimal levels of critical nutrients and enzyme cofactors must be achieved. MitoCORE® provides an optimized backbone of vitamins and minerals necessary for increasing energy output and meeting daily nutritional needs.
Rice protein is a valuable source of branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine. These amino acids reduce the breakdown of protein and stimulate protein synthesis.
