Instagram LogoMIGHTY MITOCHONDRIA// The Supervital Journal Mighty Mitochondria looks into the most minute components of our body, the cell, and specifically the mitochondria. By optimizing the function of each cell and mitochondria, the article dives into how we can promote Supervital Active Longevity, a concept that will continue to be featured at Best Health Co. Content and Sections List: 💪 How can mitochondria help us thrive? ⚡️ Mitochondria as 'The Great Energy Converter' 💀 Mitochondria as 'The Regulator of Life & Death' 👀 Mitochondria as 'The Generator of Disorder & Disease' 🏄 What role do mitochondria play in aging? ☀️ How do mitochondria handle DNA damage? 🛡 Mitochondria and their natural resistance to oxidative stress 🍄 How do the antioxidants from our diet affect our innate antioxidant system? 🔥 What can we do to support our Mitochondria? 🧘 Final Thoughts & Summary List Supervital Active Longevity, 'feeling as good as we can for as long as you can,' is the idea behind BESUPERVITAL® and the information presented in our journal, The Supervital. The goal really is to age in a way that minimizes discomfort, injury, and debilitation of the mind and body so that we can live the way we want and do the things we want to do for as long as we want to do them. Optimizing and getting the most out of our mitochondrial health is essential within Supervital Active Longevity. This includes promoting a positive outlook on life, eating optimally nutritious food, strategizing strength-building exercises to build athletic/flexible bodies, and taking next-level functional supplements. Before we can optimize the function and efficiency of our mitochondria, let's investigate what they are, what they do, and, essentially, how can mitochondria help us thrive?

Instagram LogoERGOTHIONEINE// The Longevity Vitamin* Ergothioneine (ERGO) is a sulfur-containing amino acid produced in nature only by fungi and a few other microbes. ERGO has entered the conversation to be considered a ‘Longevity Vitamin’ due to its cellular protective effects on biology, specifically the mitochondria. Humans cannot synthesize ERGO and must get it from the diet. The action of absorption involves a highly specific transporter (OCTN1) that handles the adsorption, distribution, and retention of ERGO within tissues. That’s pretty cool! The presence of an Ergothioneine transporter suggests that ERGO might benefit our ability to be resilient (heal, recover, regenerate, etc.) and potentially is responsible for a significant role in healthy aging. Organs and tissues that seem to accumulate ERGO in their mitochondria are the Liver, Heart, Kidneys, Red Blood Cells, Spleen, Brain, Lung, Eye, and Cerebro-Spinal Fluid. That’s quite a list!! These tissues will store ERGO for ~30 days. The ‘Longevity Vitamin’ activates in response to physiologic indicators (i.e., stress) for cellular protection. Here is a list of the concentrations of ERGO in culinary mushrooms (mg per 100g dry weight): Porcini - 181.24mg King Oyster - 54.17mg Shiitake - 35.35mg Enoki - 34.64mg Abalone - 32.47mg Portobello - 19.09mg White Button - 15.44mg Maitake - 2.02mg Additionally, mushrooms that ARE a rich dietary source of ERGO also contain significant levels of the master antioxidant, Glutathione (GSH). The concentration of GSH corresponds with the ERGO levels listed above. Porcini mushrooms lead the pack at 2.41 mg/g and so on. Ultimate wellness magic for the mind ? body ? soul ?
