When MitoQ first contacted me to see if I wanted to try their products, I didn’t really know what to think, because I had to put my thinking cap on to understand the science behind them. The more I learned, the less skeptical I became, and I went for it! For about 5 weeks, I’ve been testing out their Targeted Antioxidant supplement, along with their Power Antioxidant Rejuvenation Serum. I want to share my results with you, and tell you about this unique scientific breakthrough to help prevent and repair oxidative stress.
First, I have to say — I’m not a doctor, and I have no medical training. The information I’m sharing with you is what I’ve learned after trying the products to see how effective they would be for me. Please don’t use my thoughts as a substitute for any medical advice, and as always — please consult with your physician before starting any supplement. I talked to my doctor, and I received his blessing. He does not endorse or promote MitoQ products, but was very happy to see that I would be introducing CoQ10 to my body. I’ll talk more about the benefits/results in a sec!
From what I’ve learned, every cell in our body contains mitochondria. Mitochondria act as the youthful batteries to those cells, but as we age, our mitochondria levels lessen (about 10% every decade). When this happens, free radicals cause oxidative stress to what were once healthy cells. That lack of cellular energy shows up in our skin; leaving behind dullness, wrinkles, and a lack of elasticity. Keeping your mitochondria healthy becomes imperative if you want to potentially slow down the skin’s aging process. [Read more…]
