Enhance Cells’ Powerhouse Mitochondria for a Mind-Body Energy Boost

Mitochondria are organelles within cells that take in nutrients from foods, break them down, and produce charged-up ATP energy molecules that power all metabolic processes.

Mitochondria are most highly concentrated in high-energy tissues and organs, such as the muscles, brain and heart.

Concern: Over time, mitochondria accumulate damage from unstable free radicals. This damage has been linked to fatigue, metabolic issues, brain fog and other health concerns.

Performance Lab® Energy taps advanced nutrition technology to protect, multiply and optimize mitochondria in nearly every cell in the body.

With this approach, Performance Lab® Energy promotes clean, crash-free energy in body and mind while supporting long-range vitality and overall health

Restoring every cell in your body to peak performance.

MicroActive® Q10 (CoQ10), 100 mg

CoQ10 is a vitamin-like compound required for bioenergetics: The flow and transformation of energy in all life forms.

CoQ10 is present in almost every cell in the body. It is most highly concentrated in high-energy organs (brain, heart) and high-energy tissues (muscle).

80% of the body’s CoQ10 is found within cells’ mitochondria, where its performance-enhancing functions include:

  1. Sparking cell energy. CoQ10 shuttles electrons and protons across mitochondrial membranes, helping convert energy in foods into ATP cell energy;
  2. Mitochondria protection. CoQ10 converts into ubiquinol: An antioxidant that protects mitochondria from free radicals’ cell-damaging, age-accelerating effects;
  3. Mitochondria biogenesis. CoQ10 has been shown to stimulate formation of fresh new mitochondria in response to oxidative stress.

Without CoQ10, cell energy cannot be generated or sustained.

Concern: CoQ10 levels are depleted by aging, exercise, environmental stressors and some cholesterol medications.

Performance Lab® Energy MicroActive® Q10 is a nutritional technology breakthrough that restores CoQ10 levels for peak bioenergetic performance.

Plain CoQ10 is difficult to absorb. That’s why Performance Lab® Energy uses bioavailability-enhanced MicroActive® Q10.

Research shows that one dose of MicroActive® Q10 outperforms plain CoQ10, absorbing faster and releasing slowly over 24 hours for steady, sustained cell energy support:

MicroActive® Q10

CoQ10 - CoQ10 converts food into energy and fights cell damage.

BioPQQ® (Pyrroloquinoline Quinone), 10 mg

Pyrroloquinoline Quinone (PQQ) is a unique antioxidant related to B-vitamins. It serves as a cofactor for enzymatic reactions that enable cell health and development.

PQQ is strongly associated with healthy mitochondrial function. It complements CoQ10’s mitochondrial support by:

  1. Stimulating mitochondrial biogenesis. PQQ works in concert with CoQ10, but via a unique bioactivity: Influencing genetic pathways involved in regulating mitochondria;
  2. Fighting mitochondrial oxidative stress. PQQ is suggested to possess 5,000x the antioxidant power of vitamin C, providing strong mitochondrial protection

Performance Lab® Energy PQQ works in concert with CoQ10 to boost, multiply and protect mitochondria powerhouses in nearly every cell in the body.

Performance Lab® Energy BioPQQ® is a cutting-edge, water-soluble form of Pyrroloquinoline Quinone. It is the most evidence-backed PQQ form available on the market today.

BioPQQ®

PPQ: PPQ protects mitochondira function with 5,000x the antioxidant power of vitamin C.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR), 750 mg

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is an amino acid cofactor required for cell energy.

Approximately 95% of the body’s carnitine is located in muscle. ALCAR is crucial for muscle performance. Settling in the outer membrane of mitochondria, ALCAR works by:

  1. Donating acetyl groups to form Acetyl CoA long-chain fatty acids that fuel mitochondria;
  2. Transporting long-chain fatty acids across inner cell membranes into mitochondria, where they are oxidized to produce ATP energy;
  3. Returning to outer mitochondrial membranes to be recycled and transport fuel again

In addition to its energy metabolism benefits, ALCAR promotes mitochondrial health by:

  1. Transporting waste materials and toxins out of the mitochondria. Toxins have been shown to interfere with cell energy production and efficiency;
  2. Helping to strengthen and protect mitochondrial membranes, in part by reducing formation of cell-damaging free radicals
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR)

Acetyl-L-Carnitine - ALCAR helps preserve muscle energy and target fat during exercise

Performance Lab® Energy ALCAR is highly bioavailable, absorbed into cells without glucose, and can cross the blood-brain barrier – distinct advantages for weight loss and mental energy.

ALCAR is an athletic performance-enhancer: During exercise, it helps preserve energy stored in muscle while encouraging the use of energy stored in fat.

  • ALCAR’s dual-powered support for energized training and fat metabolism combine to optimize all body composition programs, ranging from muscle gain to fat loss.

R-Lipoic Acid (Bio-Enhanced®), 150 mg

R-Lipoic Acid is a cofactor found in mitochondria, where it activates enzymes that are essential for bioenergetic processes and carbohydrate metabolism. R-Lipoic Acid helps vitality by:

  1. Functioning as a precursor for the Acetyl CoA, supporting its formation in a separate pathway from ALCAR;
  2. Enhancing insulin-stimulated glucose transport and metabolism for efficient cell performance

R-Lipoic Acid is also a Universal Antioxidant: Soluble in both water and fat, it can help counter oxidative stress in all parts of the body and all parts of our cells. R-Lipoic Acid’s extended mitochondria-oriented antioxidant activity includes:

  1. Enhancing mitochondrial expression of protective antioxidant enzymes, including glutathione, suggested to reverse age-related mitochondrial enzyme decline;
  2. Directly recycling and extending activity of mitochondria-protective antioxidants including CoQ10 and vitamin C

Performance Lab® Energy Bio-Enhanced® Na-RALA is a purified, stabilized and nature-identical salt form that helps eliminate gastric side effects and maximize bioavailability.

R-Lipoic Acid

R-Lipoic Acid - R-Lipoic Acid is a Universal Antioxidant helping to counter oxidative stress in all parts of the body.

Performance Lab® Energy ALCAR + ALA Synergy: ALCAR + ALA support mitochondrial synthesis and energy metabolism more effectively together than when taken alone. ALCAR+ALA have also been studied in combination for their ability to protect proteins and mitochondria from free radicals.

BioPerine® Black Pepper Extract, 2.5 mg

Black pepper extract supplies active piperine. As patented BioPerine®, black pepper piperine works as a thermonutrient that raises metabolic rate and body heat, which in turn:

  1. Enhances nutrient bioavailability. BioPerine® helps nutrients in foods and supplements to reach the bloodstream. It has been shown to boost supplemented CoQ10 bioavailability by 30%, further amplifying Energy’s MicroActive® Q10;
  2. Increases energy expenditure. BioPerine®’s thermogenic effects help you to burn more calories; an especially beneficial activity for maximizing fitness and fat loss results
BioPerine® Black Pepper Extract

Piperine - Piperine fires up your metabolism and turns up the heat on body fat.

Performance Lab® Energy BioPerine® is a patented, clinically researched and highly purified form of black pepper extract, standardized to supply 95% piperine.
