HydroZen, Mitochondria and Energy27.01.2012
by Life Enthusiast Staff
Negative hydrogen ions bind to NAD+ in the inner membrane of mitochondria to produce NADH. NADH is a carrier of hydrogen and electrons to the Electron Transport Chain. An increase in NADH will stimulate the mitochondria to produce more ATP. The up-regulation of electrons and hydrogen ions will drive the electron transport chain to churn out more ATP. Another added benefit is that when the mitochondria is able to pump out ATP, other nutrients are absorbed and used more easily.
Not only are negative hydrogen ions capable of boosting mitochondrial function, they are also very powerful antioxidants that do not turn into free radicals themselves after reducing free radicals. This is a situation that happens with most other antioxidants. They also have double the reducing power of most other antioxidants.
Why is HydroZen so effective, especially in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia Patients?
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and fibromyalgia have been attributed to a lack of ATP being generated in mitochondria and the general dysfunction of mitochondria due to oxidative stress. Our cells only have enough ATP to last a short amount of time. For example, heart muscle cells only have enough ATP at one time for 10 contractions. This is why it is important that mitochondria are constantly converting ADP back into ATP. When the demand for ATP is greater than can be provided, the result is the production of ATP through fermentation, resulting a buildup of lactic acid, one of the main symptoms being fibromyalgia pain.
HydroZen can alleviate this in two ways. One way is that the negative hydrogen ions from HydroZen will permeate into the mitochondria and bind with NAD+ molecules to produce NADH. NADH is the main precursor to driving the electron transport chain and oxidative phosphorylation, converting ADP to ATP. ATP will constantly be available in high amounts alleviating, chronic fatigue, and aiding in fibromyalgia pain by reducing the lactic acid buildup from a lack of ATP. The cells will not be forced to convert glucose to make ATP resulting in a decrease in lactic acid levels overall.
Another way is that HydroZen provides negative hydrogen ions that are powerful and versatile antioxidants. Negative hydrogen ions not only have the power to reduce multiple free radicals, they also scavenge and eliminate hydroxyl radicals, the most dangerous free radical. Decreasing oxidative stress in the cells by eliminating free radicals will also allow the cells and mitochondria to work efficiently, boosting overall health. HydroZen is a balanced multipurpose antioxidant supplement that has the ability to make a significant impact in your life.
