Mitochondrial DNA Damage Can Cause Macular Degeneration

Mitochondrial DNA Damage as a Potential Mechanism for Age-related Macular Degeneration New study shows that the progression of Age-Related Macular Degeneration may be connected to ongoing damage to mitochondia in the retinal cells. Editor’s Note: Mitochondria are often called the “powerhouse of the cell” because they produce ATP (energy) from sugar and other organic molecules. Without this energy production within our cells, they would perish. This study further underscores the importance of having a healthy diet, exercising and taking targeted supplements that nourish the retinal cells. Nutrients such as CoQ10 may help as well as it helps increase mitochondrial activity (energy production) in the cells. Supporting nutrients for CoQ10 incude n-acetyl-carnitine and alpha lipoic acid.

Editor’s Note: Shaklee Corporation makes a product called Vivix that is a mixed polyphenol blend that contains resveratrol and other polyphenols. Vivix has been shown to prevent declining Cellular Energy Production. Mitochondria in our cells create energy we can’t live without. As mitochondrial efficiency decreases, cell function declines. Vivix ingredients promote mitrochondrial biogenesis.

A great product to partner with Shaklee Vivix is their CoQ10 product called CoHeart . Their CoQHeart is a bioactive form of CoQ10 that promotes mitochondria Energy.
