MitoTrax™ Mitochondrial Support Overview
Mitochondria are often referred to as the powerhouses of the cell. This is because they are largely involved in the production of energy. They fulfill this role by producing ATP (which can be thought of as a cells energy currency) through the oxidizing of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) and pyruvate. These two compounds are themselves produced from the metabolism of glucose in the cytosol. The creation of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) involves a process known as aerobic respiration; the anaerobic process of ATP production does not involve oxygen nor require mitochondrion.
In cells with high-energy demands, the mitochondria may represent up to 25% of a cell’s content, with a typical cell containing from 1,000 to 2,500 mitochondria . In an average adult person, mitochondria are typically involved in the production of about 1200 watts of energy per day, with 70% of all ATP being used by the brain . Hence, the mitochondria play a very important role in neural health.
The mitochondrion itself is a small organelle that is evolutionarily different from the body’s other tissues. Each mitochondrion contains two to ten copies of mtDNA. This mtDNA originally evolved within small bacterial genomes, which became engulfed into the body’s eukaryotic cells in a phenomenon known as symbiogenesis. These mitochondria are passed down maternally and can be used to trace back a person’s genealogical history.
Mitochondria are found in the cell cytosol. Here they play an active role in energy generation. Cells that have large energy demands typically have a much greater amount of mitochondria in their cytosol. In addition to its role in energy production, mitochondria also have an active involvement in programmable cell death (apoptosis) via the release of cytochrome C.
Other major mitochondrial functions include a role in calcium signaling, regulation of membrane function, ROS related signaling, a role in the regulation of cellular metabolism, the synthesis of steroids, and are also involved in responses to hormone signaling in the brain, heart, and in numerous types of tissues and cells.
Given its role as the cell's energy powerhouse and its multitude of other important biological functions, it is no surprise to learn that maintaining mitochondrial health is of utmost importance for those wishing to live an healthy lifestyle, and especially for people with higher energy needs: such as runners, bodybuilders, people performing training exercises at the gym, and those with an active or stressful lifestyle.
Optimization of your mitochondrial function and health can help to support your energetic needs and help with fatigue. Taking a mitochondrial support supplement enables you to easily include important nutrients and coenzymes into your diet that you may otherwise be lacking.
VitaMonk MitoTraxTM capsules have been designed to support and boost Mitochondrial health. Its core ingredients are as follows: Acetyl-L-Carnitine; Schizandra berry extract; Curcumin; Alpha lipoic acid; NADH; CoQ10; and a multitude of energy supporting minerals and vitamins.
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NADH)
NAD is a coenzyme that plays a major role in the electron transport chain, where it is involved in the transfer of redox energy.
In these reactions NADH acts as a carrier of electrons. NAD is naturally found in two different states in the cell: NAD+ (oxidizing agent that accepts electrons) and NADH (reducing agent able to donate electrons). An abundant presence of NAD, and a balance of the NAD/NADH ratio are therefore essential for mitochondrial health .
NAD+ is reported to help maintain mitochondrial fitness via the mitochondrial unfolded protein response, can activate sirtuins, and is reported to be able to rewire metabolism .
The carnitine compound is thought to support the healthy aging of mitochondria and is also reported to enhance their fat burning potential. It is naturally synthesized in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine.
Carnitine is involved in the binding of long chain fatty acids. Once bound these can be transferred into the mitochondria for use in the fat burning process and they can also donate acetyl for use in the TCA cycle [4, 5].
Alpha Lipoic Acid
This fatty acid is naturally present in the mitochondria. In addition to its role in energy metabolism it may also have the potential to help support blood glucose levels, is involved in the scavenging of free radicals, and helps to restore age related diminishing of glutathione .
It is naturally synthesized from octanoic acids in the mitochondrion by enzymes, and is an important cofactor of α-ketoacid dehydrogenases.
It is also readily absorbed from dietary sources and reported to support pathophysiologic insults, neuromuscular health, the cardiovascular system, detoxification processes, the inflammatory response, and cognitive processes such as memory loss [6 – 9].
Schizandra Berry Extract
Schizandra berry (Schisandra chinensis; Chinese magnolia vine) has been used in traditional Chinese and Far eastern medicines since at least the end of the 16th century . In TCM it has had widespread use as an adaptogen and is often taken for its potential to benefit liver health.
It is reported to support hepatoprotective activity through increasing the concentration of glutathione in the mitochondria .
Curcumin and Black Pepper Extract (BPE)
Curcumin is a natural polyphenolic pigment of the turmeric rhizome. It has been reported to have antioxidant activity and to support responses to oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation in numerous mammalian tissues .
It is able to mediate mitochondrial biogenesis via the PGC-1α-related signaling pathway. It is thus possible that curcumin may be able to help alleviate cellular dysfunctions relating to biogenesis .
As curcumin is rapidly removed by the body’s waste system our VitaMonk MitoTrax product also contains black pepper extract (active ingredient piperine). This aids with curcumin absorption and retention in the body .
Coenzyme Q (Ubiquinone; CoQ) is a quinone that occurs naturally in nearly all aerobic organisms. In humans the most common form of CoQ is CoQ10, which has ten isoprene repeats . As it plays a role in energy production it is found in the greatest abundance in tissues and vital organs that have high metabolic rates, such as the heart, muscle, liver, and kidney.
Its main role is in the electron transport chain where it acts as a cofactor in the synthesis of ATP – the energy currency .
As a natural antioxidant it is able to support against damage caused to cells from free radicals and reactive oxidative species.
Minerals and Vitamins
The water-soluble vitamins, B1 (thiamine) and B2 (riboflavin), and Vitamin C are essential for human function. Vitamins cannot be synthesized by the body and so must be obtained from one’s diet. B1 and B2 are important co-enzymes for aerobic respiration and energy production in the cells and mitochondria .
The oxidized form of vitamin C (DHA) is able to enter the mitochondria through the Glut1 transporter. It can then accumulate in the mitochondria as ascorbic acid. This enables it to quench reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the mitochondria and to protect it from damage .
The minerals calcium and magnesium play important roles in cell function and in protecting the function of the mitochondrion. In vitro, they have been reported to be able to activate important mitochondrial enzymes that play roles in energy metabolism and to help prevent damage from biological stresses .

How much ATP does the body produce every day?
As ATP cannot be stored it must be constantly produced in large amounts by the mitochondria. On average a cell uses 10 billion units of ATP per day. This means that an average adult human will require 3.0 × 1025 ATP per day to fulfill their energy needs.
On average a single unit of ADP is converted into ATP about 1000 times per day.
As you can imagine the mitochondria is required to function with the utmost efficiency. Taking the VitaMonk MitoTrax supplement may help to support the mitochondria perform these processes to their full potential.
Who provides the best mitochondrial support supplement?
We have carefully researched and selected the components of MitoTrax for their role in the support of mitochondrial health. As we only use the high quality ingredients we feel that VitaMonk offers the best mitochondria support supplement on the market.
Can I support mitochondria health by making diet and lifestyle changes?
Yes, some of the things that you may wish to look into in addition to taking VitaMonk to boost your mitochondria health include exposure to the sun (photoelectric effect); intermittent fasting (calorie restriction is thought to support the function and longevity of the mitochondria); exercise (movement helps to improve mitochondrial stasis); increasing the ratio of fat in your diet (dietary fat plays an important role in the creation of ATP); and cold thermogenesis (exposure to cold can enhance mitochondria biogenesis).
What is your mitochondria?
It is an organelle found in cell cytoplasm that is involved in the biochemical production of energy. It can be thought of as the fuel production center of the cell, with ATP being the fuel that it produces.
What nutrients are needed by mitochondria?
The main wants of the mitochondria, such as NADH, vitamins B and C, CoQ10, and L-carnitine are provided for in our VitaMonk MitoTraxTM capsule product stack.
What foods are good for mitochondria?
Leafy vegetables rich in minerals and vitamins B and C; nuts; fruit; beans; fish; dairy products, and meat; and green peppers and Kiwi, which are naturally rich in PQQ.
What is the main function of the mitochondria?
To fulfill the body’s energy needs through the respiration process.
What happens to your mitochondria when you work out?
Exercise helps to increase the amount of protein that can be used by the mitochondria found in cells. Thus working out and stacking nutrients can help to support better energy production.
