AUCKLAND, New Zealand, Aug. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- MitoQ Ltd, the company behind revolutionary antioxidant MitoQ, has just launched the latest addition to the brand's growing portfolio of health supplements - MitoQ Blood Sugar, a comprehensive and highly targeted variation of MitoQ's original supplement that is designed to support balanced blood sugar and insulin levels, weight management and key organ health.
Mitoquinol, the novel ingredient in MitoQ, was developed at Otago University, Dunedin. It is a super-charged, third generation, patented, scientifically-proven form of the popular CoQ10 antioxidant that uniquely targets mitochondria - also known as the body's cellular batteries.
These cellular batteries are responsible for providing the body with the chemical energy required to fight fatigue, ensure peak organ function and promote healthy ageing.
Unbalanced blood sugar levels create oxidative stress on organs and cells, in turn causing mitochondrial damage, and thus a drop in energy levels and reduction in effective organ function.
Blood Sugar imbalances are more prevalent in the ageing population, but can also be caused by poor diet and lifestyle at any age, and can result in a multitude of significant complications and health issues down the track.
MitoQ Blood Sugar has been specifically developed to support blood sugar balance, and reduce the impact of oxidative stress on mitochondrial health, through a powerful, comprehensive formulation that combines the science and benefits of original MitoQ with blood sugar balancing nutrients Chromium, Cinnamon and Zinc.
Chromium is needed to regulate blood glucose and help reduce sugar cravings. Research studies support intervention with chromium supplements to support healthy glucose metabolism. Chromium also supports energy production and weight management, and supports cardiovascular health and healthy cholesterol levels. Chromium is a commonly deficient mineral due to the high intake of refined and sugary foods in modern diets. Chromium Picolinate is the most effective form of Chromium to support blood sugar levels and is absorbed better than other forms.
Zinc plays an important role in blood sugar metabolism. Zinc is involved in the production, storage and release of insulin from the pancreas. Zinc Amino Acid Chelate is a very good source of bioavailable zinc.
Recent studies have shown that cinnamon supports glucose metabolism at the cell receptor site. Supplementing the diet with concentrated, standardised cinnamon may support healthy blood sugar balance. Other studies show cinnamon helps support healthy cholesterol levels. Cinnamon is also a powerful antioxidant to help protect against the damaging effects of glucose on the cardiovascular and other body systems.
By supporting normal blood sugar balance and natural sugar metabolism, MitoQ Blood Sugar targets and protects the affected organs including the pancreas, kidneys, liver, eyes, brain and heart, and also supports macro and micro-vascular peripheral nerve and circulatory health.
In addition, MitoQ Blood Sugar supports weight management by helping the body naturally manage excess blood sugar.
Each one of the three supplemental ingredients in MitoQ Blood Sugar has been selected for its proven ability to support normal blood sugar levels and therefore helping reduce sugar cravings, assisting with energy production and protecting the body from the negative effects of glucose on the cardiovascular and other body systems.
MitoQ Blood Sugar is designed to support normal insulin levels in individuals at risk of unbalanced blood sugar levels, particularly those aged 40 years and above - whether it is naturally-occurring or affected by lack of exercise and unhealthy eating. Anyone can benefit from the support MitoQ Blood Sugar offers, as even health-conscious, active people can experience unbalanced blood sugar levels as they age.
The breakthrough formula of the original MitoQ supplement is proven to be up to 847 times more powerful than regular CoQ10 supplements.
More than a decade has been spent researching and developing the MitoQ range, and as a result MitoQ Ltd has created a leading-edge supplement that targets the body's mitochondria for healthy living with anti-ageing benefits.
MitoQ's revolutionary science works by attaching a positive charge to CoQ10 - which is also the mitochondria's own natural antioxidant. This small change causes positively charged MitoQ to literally flood negatively charged mitochondria, thus restoring antioxidant capacity to youthful levels.
Until now, no other product has ever been able to penetrate mitochondria to deliver antioxidants to the body in meaningful levels. Other sources of CoQ10 are unable to infiltrate the mitochondria and thus make a tangible difference.
To date, there are over 200 published research papers globally that detail MitoQ's effect. The original MitoQ capsules have earned an international following for both their health and anti-ageing benefits.
The combination of the powerful science behind MitoQ and the addition of three fundamental nutrients means that combined with a healthy diet and exercise regime, MitoQ Blood Sugar is a formidable formulation for addressing both the short-term and long term effects of unbalanced blood sugar.
MitoQ Blood Sugar is now available for USD$69.95 online at www.mitoq.com. Always read the label and use as directed. If symptoms persist see your healthcare professional.
