MULTI-NUTRIENT NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT FOR MITOCHONDRIAL HEALTH*

WHAT IT IS

MULTI-NUTRIENT NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT FOR MITOCHONDRIAL HEALTH*

A unique combination of N-acetyl cysteine, acetyl L-carnitine, alpha-lipoic acid and other key nutrients that support mitochondrial functioning, based on the many years of clinical practice and ongoing research studies led by Dr. Jon Kaiser.*

HOW IT WORKS

SUPPORTS MITOCHONDRIAL FUNCTION*

All cells, with the exception of red blood cells, contain mitochondria, organelles that produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the cellular "energy currency," from adenosine diphosphate (ADP). In addition, mitochondria are involved in many other processes within the body such as cell signaling and regulation of cellular metabolism. Mitochondrial energy metabolism is a critical part of cellular health and function.

Mitochondrial function depends on quenching of free radicals produced during normal electron transport chain (ETC) activity, integrity of mitochondrial cell membranes and the transport of critical metabolites, such as fatty acids, into the mitochondria. One approach to supporting mitochondrial function is the provision of micronutrients and antioxidants that support these mechanisms.* K-PAX MitoNutrients is a unique combination of N-acetyl cysteine, acetyl L-carnitine, alpha-lipoic acid and other key nutrients that support mitochondrial functioning, based on the many years of clinical practice and ongoing research studies led by Dr. Kaiser.*

FAQs

  • A. K-PAX® MitoNutrient™ Activator is designed to be taken in combination with K-PAX® MitoNutrients™ in those patient populations that require additional energy support.* A differentiating feature is the addition of caffeine along with B-complex vitamins, tyrosine and taurine. Developed by Dr. Kaiser, through diligent trial and error, he found that some patients did not experience the expected results when taking the mitochondrial nutrients alone, but responded well with the addition of low-dose caffeine. The low-dose caffeine in K-PAX® MitoNutrient™ Activator is designed to act as a catalyst to the basic mitochondrial support nutrient formula.* Preclinical and mechanistic studies support the inclusion of caffeine, notably because caffeine increases hippocampal mitochondrial respiratory rates and may induce mitochondrial biogenesis.*1,2 Individuals requiring additional support may add 1-2 tablets per day of K-PAX® MitoNutrient™ Activator in addition to K-PAX® MitoNutrients.™ Individuals may take this combination until the desired effects are seen, at which time the K-PAX® MitoNutrient™ Activator may be discontinued. 1 Dragicevic N, Delic V, Cao C, et al. Caffeine increases mitochondrial function and blocks melatonin signaling to mitochondria in …mice and cells. Neuropharmacology. 2012 Dec;63(8):1368–79. 2 Vaughan RA, Garcia-Smith R, Bisoffi M, Trujillo KA, Conn CA.

  • A. The tablet form is an ideal way to deliver the levels of nutrients needed within this supplement, while reducing the per day dosage for patients, ultimately avoiding “pill fatigue”. Patients taking K-PAX MitoNutrients experience a more convenient 4-tablet per day dose vs what would be a 8 capsule per day dose through a capsule delivery format.

  • A. K-PAX MitoNutrients should be taken with food. Four to six glasses of water are also recommended.

  • A. K-PAX MitoNutrient Activator contains low dose caffeine, B-vitamins, tyrosine and taurine, whereas the K-PAX MitoNutrients does not. The low-dose caffeine in K-PAX® MitoNutrient™ Activator is designed to act as a catalyst to the basic mitochondrial support nutrient formula.* Preclinical and mechanistic studies support the inclusion of caffeine, notably because caffeine increases hippocampal mitochondrial respiratory rates and may induce mitochondrial biogenesis.*1,2
