Mitochondria disease affects many
One in 5,000 individuals has a mitochondrial disease. Each year, about 1,000 to 4,000 children in the United States are born with a mitochondrial disease, according to the Cleveland Clinic. With the number and type of symptoms and organ systems involved, mitochondrial diseases are often mistaken for other, more common, diseases.
Protandim Nrf2 & NRF1 Synergizers effectively reduce oxidative stress. Like an apple turns brown when exposed to air, our cells can “rust” when we breathe due to oxidative stress, a process caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that damage or “oxidize” cells throughout the body in a process called oxidative stress. This imbalance leads to oxidative damage to proteins, molecules, and genes within the body.
Protandim Nrf2 & NRF1 Synergizers also support mitochondria production to fight the effects of aging. The answer to aging is simple: reduce oxidative stress and boost the mitochondrial production your cells need to repair and rejuvenate themselves. It’s a two-part approach that Protandim Dual Synergizer takes on by combining Protandim NRF1 and Nrf2 into one powerful solution.
- Reduce oxidative stress
- Combat the effects of aging caused by oxidative stress
- Activate Nrf2 protein to turn on natural antioxidant production
- Repair and rejuvenate cells
- Protect cells from free radical damage
- Promote cellular repair
- Enhance daily performance and energy levels
- Boost cellular health so that cells function at peak performance
- Reverse cellular aging by targeting genes to support chromosome maintenance
- Improve sleep quality
- Reduce oxidative stress, caused by a lower body pH and a diet high in sugar and processed food, by 40% in 30 days, on average.
- Increase glutathione production in our body by 300%. Your cells contain glutathione, which is a substance made from three amino acids: cysteine, glutamate, and glycine. Glutathione acts as an important antioxidant in your body. That means it helps combat free radicals. These are molecules that can damage your body’s cells.
- Increase ATP (cellular energy).
- Challenge the body’s aging process through the increase of antioxidant enzymes Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) by 30%, Catalase 54% and Glutathione 300%….in just 120 days.
Mitochondria = powerhouse of the cell
Mitochondrial dysfunction is the root cause of many diseases that are bewildering in their variety and complexity, according to ScienceDaily.com.
Our mitochrondria is the powerhouse of our cells, and it’s dying in our bodies. Mitochondria are responsible for creating more than 90% of the energy needed by the body to sustain life and support organ function. The parts of the body, such as the heart, brain, muscles and lungs, requiring the greatest amounts of energy are the most affected.
Mitochondrial disorders may be caused by mutations (acquired or inherited), in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), or in nuclear genes that code for mitochondrial components. They may also be the result of acquired mitochondrial dysfunction due to adverse effects of drugs, infections, or other environmental causes.
Loss of function in mitochondria, the key organelle responsible for cellular energy production, can result in the excess fatigue and other symptoms that are common complaints in almost every chronic disease, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine/National Institutes of Health (NIH).
At the molecular level, a reduction in mitochondrial function occurs as a result of the following changes:
(1) A loss of maintenance of the electrical and chemical transmembrane potential of the inner mitochondrial membrane,
(2) Alterations in the function of the electron transport chain, or
(3) A reduction in the transport of critical metabolites into mitochondria.
In turn, these changes result in a reduced efficiency of oxidative phosphorylation and a reduction in production of adenosine-5′-triphosphate (ATP). Several components of this system require routine replacement, and this need can be facilitated with natural supplements.
A genetic test can determine whether someone has a genetic mutation that causes mitochondrial disease. Ideally, the test is done using genetic material extracted from blood or from a muscle biopsy. Many times, however, symptoms speak for themselves.
