Sounds kinda scary, right? Well, it kinda is and we talk about it a lot so figured we should probably explain what it is!
Mitochondria are essential components of nearly all cells in your body. These organelles are the powerhouses for cells, providing energy to carry out biochemical reactions and other cellular processes. Mitochondria make energy for cells from the chemical energy stored in the food we eat.
Mitochondria are located in the cytoplasm of cells along with other organelles of the cell.

Among the Scientific Community the largest discussion is about Mitochondrial Decay, a major contributor to ageing. As Mitochondria provides energy for basic metabolic processes, their decay with age can impair cellular metabolism and lead to cellular decline.
Today, progressive ways to delay the mitochondrial decay is now at the forefront of
science, often described by scientists as the elusive fountain of youth. This
kind of research could help towards us living longer and still retaining a
healthy mind and body through stronger cells.(Don't worry, we're looking into it!)
We have closely followed the scientific research behind cell decay and have begun incorporating the research principles into producing benefits through the epidermis layers, the 4 layers of skin. Ultra-potent antioxidants, delivered in a pure unadulterated form, provide an extraordinary defence against mitochondrial decay and we are developing products that contain Ultra Potent Antioxidants and delivered through the epidermis layers. Research has found it protects mitochondria from oxidative damage and stimulates growth of new mitochondria as well as neutralising superoxide and hydroxyl radicals.
Using Transdermal pathways, where active ingredients are delivered across the skin for systemic distribution within the body, this is where palingenetic cell recovery can be effective of all ageing decay and the ailments which occur. The stability of these sorts of formulations will allow thousands of electron transfers without undergoing molecular breakdown.
