EnergyNeeds® contains 40 active ingredients, and is a high-powered mitochondrial cocktail combined with additional micro-nutrients designed to optimize mental and physical performance. Mitochondria are contained within our cells and provide the vast majority of the energy needed for life. As we age, face stresses, or develop disease, our mitochondrial function generally declines, which can lead to many different problems, as all cells need energy to live and function. However, being electrical with high energy needs, the brain is often the first organ to show dysfunction. Dietary supplementation using EnergyNeeds®, generally at higher dosing than that achievable by diet, can often improve mitochondrial function, restore health, and mitigate disease.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), a mainstay of the “mito-cocktail”, is a natural nutrient that plays a critical role in the production of energy by the mitochondria within cells. CoQ10 serves as an essential electron carrier in the respiratory chain, whereas almost all of the energy for the body is produced. It also functions as an antioxidant, which protects the body from damage caused by harmful molecules. There is a substantial amount of CoQ10 in EnergyNeeds®, all in the ubiquinone form for stability purposes. However, research along with patient blood monitoring suggests that ubiquinol (in the liquid form) offers superior bioavailability, resulting in better absorption of the nutrient from the gut into the blood. QNeeds® is a patent-pending 100-mg ubiquinol small-sized softgel sourced from Kaneka®, that is offered in a completely soluble, liquid, crystal-free solution, clinically proven to provide superior bioavailability.
EnergyNeeds® and QNeeds® are designed to be taken together, including in individuals that present with:
- Any functional disorder, including chronic fatigue, migraine, fibromyalgia, and other causes of chronic pain, cyclic vomiting, gastrointestinal dysmotility, and dysautonomia.
- Any neuropsychiatric disorder, including anxiety, depression, bipolar, panic, OCD, and psychosis.
- Any neurodevelopmental disorder, including autism, autism-like conditions, ADHD, and intellectual disability.
- Anyone with a mitochondrial disorder or mitochondrial dysfunction.
