NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 5, 2022
/PRNewswire/ -- The Root Brands, a global brand known for
harnessing nature to provide the support and protection your body
needs, has added another powerhouse product to its immune boosting
Mitochondria Defense Shield, MDS, is a patent pending
proprietary combination of vitamins, minerals, flavonoids, and
enzymes working together to maintain DNA integrity and ensure
proper cell function, to protect your body from aging and disease.
Mitochondria are tiny double membrane-bound organelles found in
almost every cell of all organisms except bacteria, they are known
as "the powerhouse of the cell".
Let's talk about ingredients and go a little more in depth
Vitamin C is necessary for the growth, development, and
repair of all body tissues. It enters the mitochondria in its
oxidized form and protects mitochondria from oxidative injury.
Vitamin D is vital for regulating the absorption of calcium
and phosphorus and facilitating normal immune system function.
Vitamin K-2, when it breaks down calcium in our bodies,
vitamin K2 activates a protein that helps the mineral bind to our
bones to do its job. Vitamin K activates proteins that play a role
in blood clotting, calcium metabolism and heart health.
Magnesium acts as an antioxidant in the mitochondria,
thereby reducing the synthesis of reactive oxygen species and
increasing the antioxidant capacity, which in turn can improve
mitochondrial dysfunction. Quercetin is a pigment found in
many plants, fruits, and vegetables. It is found that quercetin may
modulate mitochondrial biogenesis by reducing reactive oxygen
species production in various cell types. Lastly, let's talk about
NAD+. Life as we know it cannot exist without the nucleotide
nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD). From the simplest
organism, such as bacteria, to the most complex multicellular
organisms, NAD is a key cellular component. It has been
clearly demonstrated that cellular NAD levels decline during
chronological aging. This decline appears to play a crucial role in
the development of metabolic dysfunction and age-related diseases.
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a central
metabolic cofactor in eukaryotic cells that plays a critical role
in regulating cellular metabolism and energy homeostasis. NAD+ may
play an important role in reducing mitochondrial stress.
Dr. Christina Rahm, formulator,
and Chief Science Officer at The Root Brands, uses only the highest
quality patent pending formulations and trade secret ingredients,
carefully selecting them for their properties and proven outcomes,
