Antioxidant Mitochrondria Biogenesis Supplements

I will be stocking up on the exercise mimetic supplements shortly. I decided to purchase these from as they have the full range I require.

Initially I was going to buy green tea extract for the polyphenols and PQQ but I already drink plenty of green and oolong tea – which incedentally increases mitochondria when consumed with vitamin B. However as green tea extract and the ployphenols are highly liver toxic I willl omit this supplement and just continue to drink the tea along with vitamin B.

Here is the list of what I will purchase and it should come to a years supply at least.

Coenzyme Q10 (COQ10) 2x 25 gm – a one year supply – cost $45 – must be melted into coconut oil to avoid spoilage.

Grape Seed/Pine Bark Gel-Caps 600 x 450mg – $54

Grape seed and pine bark extracts act as antioxidants and promote a healthy cardiovascular system. Antioxidants are helpful because they fight and destroy free radical molecules, which can damage cell membranes.
Grape seed extract also contains resveratrol. This chemical is found primarily in the skin and seeds of grapes. Resveratrol is also an antioxidant, providing support for the health of the cardiovascular system.

Grapefruit Seed Extract 250g – cost $24

Refer the the Bill Brinks article in a previous post for information on grapefruit extracts – basically it contains mitochondria biogenesis nutrients

Quercetin Dihydrate P.E. 95% 500g – $100

In total $224 plus shipping for over a years supply. Shipping to New Zealand can run a little steep but it will still be under $300nz I hope – in return I get the mitochondria levels of a fit young man.

High Mitochondria equals high aerobic capacity and Mitochondria also BURN FAT !!!

One last supplement I will add to the stack is Acetyl-L-Carnitine

Produced by the body in the liver and kidneys, L-Carnitine is a nutrient that helps the body turn fat into energy. By transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria, L-Carnitine boosts energy levels, because it stimulates the body’s burning of triglycerides as fuel. These characteristics result in burning fat, increasing energy and improving resistance to muscle fatigue. Not surprisingly, these properties make L-Carnitine a popular supplement with the bodybuilding community – and an ideal way to initiate fatty liver disease regression.

In a double-blind study, Dr. Malaguarnera and colleagues randomized 74 patients with NASH to receive either L-Carnitine (a 1 gram tablet after breakfast and another after dinner) or placebo for 24 weeks. All participants were put on a 1,600-calorie/day diet and a whole-body stretching routine performed three times a week. At the end of the study, those taking the L-Carnitine supplements had considerable improvements in their liver function, glucose plasma level, lipid profile and liver histology. The authors concluded that L-Carnitine and lifestyle changes, including weight loss and exercise, represent viable therapeutic options in NASH.
