Health Benefits

Complete action cyto-protectant

MitoPrime exerts a protective and restorative action that influences the sum of human physiology, ultimately leading to a long healthy life

General health benefits (all individuals)

  • Combats oxidative stress

    Neutralizes reactive oxygen species (ROS), reactive nitrogen species (RNS), reactive chlorine species (RCS) and inflammation induced species (IIS). This creates healthy cells, tissues and organs.

  • Protects DNA and genomic material

    Scavenges the two DNA-damaging acids hypochlorous and hypobromous.

  • Protects mitochondria

    The ET transporters are heavily concentrated in the mitochondria, the source of free radicals. MitoPrime protects the mitochondria preserving its functionality and ensuring the body’s energy supply.

  • Increases energy and stamina

    As MitoPrime protects mitochondria, it increases cellular respiration leading to increased energy and stamina.

  • Reduces cellular inflammation

    Cellular inflammation destabilizes cells and leads to a host of unwanted conditions. MitoPrime reduces cellular inflammation via the proven ‘root cause’ pathways.

  • Boosts immune response

    MitoPrime helps boost both the innate immune response and the adaptive immune response.

  • Detoxifies cells

    MitoPrime chelates positive metallic cations.

  • Protects skin

    MitoPrime protects skin by reducing the harmful effects of UV rays. Remember, skin is the frontline defense against pathogens.

Target-specific health benefits

The heart

Studies show that ergothioneine is associated with reduced mortality and decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. According to another study…“Intake of ergothioneine would be a prudent medicinal means of reducing CVD risk.”

The brain / cognition

Multiple studies concluded that… “Individuals who had the steepest decline in ergothioneine had the highest incidence of cognitive impairment.”

The kidney

In a significant study, Shinozaki et al. found that ergothioneine plays a role in chronic kidney disease (CKD). Patients with CKD had lower blood ET levels, but the levels were restored after kidney transplantation.

The eyes

One study concluded that ET in eyes plays a role to protect against the chronic exposure to ROS. ROS in eyes is due to high oxygen tension (the cornea is exposed to 21% oxygen), UV exposure and high metabolic activity.
