Multi-Nutrient Nutritional Supplement for Mitochondrial Health*
All cells, with the exception of red blood cells, contain mitochondria, organelles that produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the cellular “energy currency”, from adenosine diphosphate (ADP). In addition, mitochondria are involved in many other processes within the body such as cell signaling and regulation of cellular metabolism. Mitochondrial energy metabolism is a critical part of cellular health and function, and influences overall health.
Optimal mitochondrial function depends on:
- Quenching of free radicals produced during normal electron transport chain (ETC) activity
- Integrity of mitochondrial cell membranes
- The transport of critical metabolites, such as fatty acids, into the mitochondria
One approach to optimizing mitochondrial function is the provision of micronutrients and antioxidants that support these mechanisms.* K-PAX MitoNutrients is a unique combination of N-acetyl cysteine, acetyl L-carnitine, alpha-lipoic acid and other key nutrients that support mitochondrial functioning, based on the many years of clinical practice and ongoing research studies led by Dr. Kaiser.*
K-PAX MitoNutrients and K-PAX MitoNutrient Activator were formulated by Jon D. Kaiser, MD who has 25 years of experience exploring in immune and mitochondrial health. K-PAX MitoNutrients and K-PAX MitoNutrient Activator are the original formulas which feature a unique micronutrient combination to support mitochondrial health and cellular energy support.* K-PAX MitoNutrients is part of an approach that investigated the impact on occasional fatigue and mental alertness.1
