Damage to mitochondria is now implicated in all known diseases. Providing dosages of nutrients shown in clinical trials to increase mitochondrial energy production can help restore health and decrease the aging process. Since mitochondria exist in nearly every cell in the body, providing cellular nutrients for mitochondrial health positively affects all body systems.
MitoForte is hypoallergenic, is encapsulated in all vegetarian capsules in a GMP-certified, FDA-registered facility, and contains NO yeast, wheat, gluten, soy protein, milk/dairy, corn, sodium, sugar, starch, artificial coloring, preservatives or flavoring.
, an extract from the plant, Huperzia serrata
been used in China for centuries for various ailments, including
boosting memory. Extensive research in last twenty years has defined
Huperzine A as a powerful compound for improving memory. In China,
where the traditional uses of plants dates by millennia,
Huperzine A has been approved for the treatment of Alzheimer's Diseaes
In the United States, Huperzine A is available as a dietary supplement
ingredient. Animal studies show that it can prevent damage to brain cells that can cause memory loss and dementia. Clinical trials show it improves memory and mental
function in people with memory loss and dementia by 60% or more. Huperzine A has also been established as a proven way to promote "factual
memory," "recognition," "association", and "accumulation" in people complaining of memory loss.
is required to shuttle fats into the mitochondria for beta-oxidation of those fats to produce energy. L-carnitine has been shown to increase energy, decrease serum triglycerides, promote heart health in patients with cardiovascular disease, improve insulin resistance, and improve immune function. L-carnitine has been extensively studied for its ability to increase mitochondrial energy production and improve exercise tolerance in athletes.
(ALCAR) is the acetyl form of L-carnitine. ALCAR crosses the blood-brain barrier and improves mitochondrial function in the central nervous system. It decreases oxidative damage to the hippocampus. Damage to the hippocampus causes memory loss. ALCAR improves mitochondrial energy production in the brain and has been shown to improve memory.
(ALA) is both a water soluble and lipid soluble antioxidant. It is also a required cofactor for the pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) complex for the production of cellular energy from carbohydrates via glycolysis. ALA decreases inflammation, protects against free radical injury to cells, increases cellular energy production, improves insulin resistance in people with metabolic syndrome and diabetes, improves memory when used in conjunction with ALCAR, and decreases complications from diabetes.
(NAC) increases glutathione (GSH) production, which is the body's major endogenous antioxidant. As such, NAC helps quench free radicals to prevent damage to mitochondria.
) root standardized is a powerful antioxidant that directly quenches free radicals and also increases GSH production to prevent mitochondrial damage.

I am so happy that I found your product--MitoForte. Although my overall health is good, over the past couple years I noticed that my mental stamina wasn't what it used to be. I would frequently experience mental fatique, forgetfulness etc. I have my own consulting firm that keeps me extremely busy with travel, meetings so I cannot afford to be anything less than "my best". Within a short time of taking MitoForte, I noticed a significant improvement in my ability to focus and stay mentally alert.
Although I am only in my mid-fifties, I am highly concerned with the effects that aging has on the brain. I watched my mother suffer with serious bouts of dementia as she progressed into her seventies. The more I read about your product, the more confident I am that I am actively keeping myself from heading toward the same fate. Thank you!

At my sister's recommendation I started taking MitoForte to improve my mental alertness and to protect myself against the effects of age on brain function. I had to let you know that I noticed quite a difference within the first couple weeks. My mental energy was greatly improved and I experienced significantly less "brain-drain" caused by work/family demands.
Trust me, I will be a life long client. I am a 50 year female executive in the nuclear power industry with a grueling travel/speaking schedule. In addition, I am the mother of two teenagers. Mitoforte helps me to keep it all together. Thank you so much!

In April 2008 my husband had hip revision surgery to repair a chronic dislocation of his original hip replacement. Four months later in August he had to have a second hip revision because the first revision didn't fix the problem. During the second surgery there were some complications, the surgery took five hours and the doctors believe that my husband may have had a stroke. After the surgery he began having trouble recalling words, names and places.
Not able to use his mind and body normally has been very frustrating for this man who is a mathematician by education and used his mind for over 30 years to create software programs to automate systems for companies and power plants all over the United States and Europe. We have a large family, and my husband could tell me all about a child but couldn't remember the child's name.
Over the months of recovery, he was not doing well, still having problems with his balance and a worsening of his memory. CAT scans and MRI's determined he had no evidence of a stroke, but had normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH). NPH is a condition in which the fluid in the spinal canal and brain build up and the pressure increases. It can cause problems with balance, memory, processing information, reasoning and problem solving. In August of 2009, a shunt was inserted into his brain which has helped his balance but not his memory. Over-the-counter supplements didn't help either.
I began studying the ingredients in MitoForte, listened to the webinar and decided to start my 76 year old husband on MitoForte. I saw no change for about two and a half weeks, then started to notice some slight changes. He still couldn't stay focused, wasn't able to recall names and places, but his memory wasn't getting worse. Then that week he was able to recall most of a conversation with a friend and later one with his own son! That was amazing! The only thing that had changed for him was taking the MitoForte!
To find a product making even a small change is a wonderful thing and gives us hope that things will continue to get better. We know this is just a tiny start, but are most grateful to NBI for MitoForte and are anxious to see more improvements as the months go by.

I was laid off of work 6 months ago. After about 1 month of being home with my disabled husband and two little dogs I realized I had lost all the energy, stamina and focus I previously had needed to work full time and take care of them every day. I knew that somehow I had to refocus but lacked the energy to figure out how or get up off the couch.
I was already taking Osteo-K every day, so when I read about MitoForte I decided I had to try it. I ordered a 3-month supply, but after just 2 weeks I could definitely feel the difference. My mind started operating again, I didn't feel like taking a nap every couple of hours. I even stopped feeling sorry for myself.
I have now been taking MitoForte every day for 2 months and have a wonderful added benefit. I have always been susceptible to skin rashes – from just about everything. Detergents, bug bites, new clothing, etc. and had gotten used to treating them with topical cream when necessary. Some of these rashes have reoccurred in the same place, like over an old surgical scar, for years.
Since taking MitoForte all of the rashes have cleared up! I feel like someone gave me a completely new skin!!!
Another benefit, possibly because of the added energy, I no longer have to snack on sweets. To me, MitoForte is my miracle pill.

I was becoming concerned because increasingly I was having difficulty coming up with the word I wanted or saying an word that I didn't want. I had always been so confident that my body was going downhill faster than my mind, which made me happy, but with different things going on with memory and word usage I was no longer so sure and it really worried me.
After reading about MitoForte and checking with my health care providers, I started taking it three months ago. It has really helped me. I very seldom have to search for the word I want and have very rarely substituted a wrong word.
I noticed an improvement after being on MitoForte for a couple of weeks and I am continuing to improve. I am noticing that I don't go into a room or downstairs and then wonder what I went to get. I am experiencing an improvement in my energy levels, even though I am older than the rocks that dirt came from.
I am definitely going to keep taking MitoForte and Osteo-K even if finances make it necessary to stop buying my other supplements. Thanks NBI for great products and careful research. I also really appreciate that your products are gluten free and that your customer service is outstanding.

This is an excellent supplement. I've been diagnosed two genetic mutations and have been prescribed multiple supplements as nutritional support. MitoForte contains many of the supplements and contains them at the dosages which I've been prescribed. Its nice to get them all in one place at an affordable price. The benefits to my energy and concentration have been amazing!
I have been using MitoForte daily for more than two years. I believe MitoForte has madea noticeable difference in my focus, stamina, and energy. I am a fifty-something lawyer with an active, demanding, stressful,and entirely fulfilling career. I'm lucky to be raising two healthy, busy, smart teenagers and have a longterm, sharing, respectfulrelationship with my soul mate. When I can, Ifind time to volunteer, both personally and professionally.
I love life and am thrilled that a healthy supplement like MitoForte helps me enjoy - to the fullest -all of the things I do. I look forward to continuing to reap the results of daily use of MitoForte.
Thank you for making my wonderful life even better.

I am a 55 year old male who has tried to stay "in shape" through the years. I am somewhat educated with a PhD in engineering. I am continually reading and learning about vitamins and supplements. My goal is to slow the aging process - not reverse the inevitable...I actually started taking vitamins on a regular basis beginning in 1982 when my wife let me try some of her "prenatal" vitamins. I read a few years back about the results of some studies involving mice and a specific "combination" of acetyl-L-carnitine and alpha lipoic acid (the primary ingredients of MitoForte). The study reported that the fat mice lost weight and started running the treadmill... Now - I was not fat at the time - but this combination sounded interesting...I have tried several different brands of the "combination" and for a variety of reasons was not happy with the results and had actually stopped trying to find a brand which I could handle... Around January 2009 - I was provided about a 3 month sample of MitoForte and I almost did not bother as I was convinced that I could not handle the ingredients. But, being adventurous - I went ahead and tried it - but was only taking half the recommended dose (previous use had caused some difficulties getting to sleep...). At the same time was I working out a couple days a week with weights and riding my bike about 3 times a week. I found myself achieving unusual improvements in my strength and size... Then my sample of MitoForte ran out - and I did not think anything of it. But - about 3 weeks later I found my strength was diminishing - and I REALIZED it was the MitoForte which was causing my improvements in strength and well being... YIKES... I called and got back on the distribution - and have been taking the recommended amount daily and have not had ANY problems with sleep or being jittery... But - I have also gained 20 pounds in the past year (this being December 2009). I would provide some photos - but with my hairy chest - hard to see the definition. Lets just say that I still have a flat stomach - no blubber - even with the weight gain... A couple things though. I can now do 10 pull ups (palms away from body). In the 26+ years I was in the military I was never able to do more than 8 - and I worked out quite a bit. And my weight was never above 175 - and I am currently about 185 (5'11"). I was at a pool party at a neighbor's house in August 09 and we started playing pool basketball with a bunch of 20 year old kids. Soon after I got in the water I came up with the ball and mentioned to one of the college soccer players in the pool to be careful with me as I was 55... His words were "HOLY COW! Do you work out or something???" In all of my years - I don't recall anyone complimenting my "build". I chuckled and remembered the MitoForte... This stuff is no joke.
"When my oldest sister was diagnosed with dementia, I discovered MitoForte in an article in Bottom Line. I ordered a bottle for her and by the end of the month I could see a difference in her. I decided to take MitoForte also and I definitely feel more energy and mental clarity. I take it as a preventative supplement and feel the benefits are invaluable."

"My husband is 82 years old and was diagnosed with pre-dementia by his physician. He had been experiencing ever decreasing memory and at times he was unable to find the right words to convey his thoughts. His inability to focus on conversations and participate in them caused him to become embarrassed, withdrawn, angry with himself and depressed. This deterioration in memory and alertness occurred very quickly over a month's time. We were ready to take him for invasive neurological procedures. Thanks to a dear friend of ours who had been taking MitoForte and noticed an increase in energy and mental acuity, he implored us to try it. My husband began taking it and the results were miraculous. Within days I began to have my husband back, who I thought I had lost forever. He became more lucid, just like his old self again. He became focused and able to follow and engage in lively conversations. His old humor and intelligence that I fell in love with 38 years ago returned. I cannot recommend this product strongly enough. Everyone should try it before succumbing to the mental and physical prison of dementia, which affects the entire family. I cannot thank Nutritional Biochemistry enough for what they've created. It saved my husband's life, and my own as well."

"After taking MitoForte I felt my energy increase and be maintained throughout the day. I do not have my mid-afternoon energy slump and even have energy to play with my kids when I get home from a busy day at work."
"I'm ninety-four years old. I have two daughters and eight grandchildren and live in an assisted living facility. In the past year I lost ten pounds. I've been extremely tired and unable to get out of bed without help. I even began not recognizing my family when they visited. I was diagnosed with memory loss and have been unable to focus on people, activities and convesations. Things I used to enjoy I had to stop doing, such as playing bingo, reading magazines and doing crossword puzzles. I tried medications and none of them helped. Then my doctor recommended MitoForte. Within three weeks my appetite returned. I could get out of bed on my own and my memory and focus improved so much that I started doing all the things I used to love. Best of all, I began recognizing my family again. Thank you NBI for everything MitoForte has done for me."
