Health Benefits at a Glance:
The mitochondria are the powerhouses of the cells. They convert food into nearly all of the energy that the body uses for all functions. Over time, however, the mitochondria can be worn down, resulting in a lower energy output which can leave you fatigued and deprived of energy. The One® from Quicksilver Scientific contains a powerful and unique mitochondria-supporting formula consisting of PPQ, resveratrol, CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10), and 19 different herbs for optimal mitochondria performance, proliferation, and energy output.
Why it Works:
The mitochondria are the powerhouses of the cells. They convert food into a type of energy called ATP. Up to 95% of the energy that the body uses is ATP. That’s why making sure that you have healthy mitochondria cannot only help your cells perform effectively but also help increase the energy output of the mitochondria - leaving you both energized and revitalized.
The One® from Quicksilver Scientific contains a proprietary herbal formula in liposomal form. It contains CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10), Pyrroloquinoline Quinone (PQQ), resveratrol, and DeltaGOLD® tocotrienols which can all help protect and promote healthy mitochondria. In turn, this increases the energy output of them and helps increase mitochondrial biogenesis, which is the natural formation of new mitochondria.
Moreover, The One® also contains a mix of adaptogenic herbs which supports the body’s response to stress and sudden high demands of energy, like when one has to perform physically.
The Science Behind the Product:
The nutrients in this product are delivered using the patented liposomal delivery system called Quicksilver Delivery Systems™ from Quicksilver Scientific.
Liposomes are tiny vesicles that contain nutrients. These microscopic spheres are made of lipids - the same material that the cell membranes are made of. When nutrients are delivered this way, they can bypass the cell membrane and deliver nutrients directly inside the cell. This helps to increase bioavailability considerably.
Moreover, when nutrients are delivered like this, it simultaneously nourishes the cell membrane and helps the cell absorb nutrients, as well as ridding itself of toxins.
The One contains a carefully crafted combination of active ingredients that can all contribute to enhancing mitochondrial energy production and cell performance:
The One® contains a mix of adaptogenic herbs that can support the body´s response to stress or help the cells produce more energy on occasions when the body suddenly needs more energy than normal - such as when the body is under intense physical stress (e.g. when exercising).
The herbal formula in this product includes extracts from Acai, American Ginseng, Ashwagandha, Astragalus, Catuaba, Chinese Licorice Gynostemma, Epimedium, Guarana, Lycium, Maca, Reishi, Rhodiola, Saw Palmetto, Schisandra, Siberian Ginseng, Stinging Nettle, Tribulus, and Yohimbe.
PQQ supports mitochondrial biogenesis - the natural formation of new mitochondria. Moreover, PQQ also helps protect the neurons (brain cells) and also promotes cardiovascular health.
Resveratrol stimulates certain pathways that lead to mitochondrial biogenesis. Furthermore, it has also been demonstrated to mimic beneficial caloric restriction effects on the metabolism.
CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) is known as an antioxidant which is particularly suited for protecting mitochondria against free radicals. Such free radicals can break down the cells gradually. By binding to free radicals, CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) helps inhibit free radicals from wreaking havoc on the mitochondria. Moreover, CoQ10 also plays a central role in the generation of cellular energy why CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) is also a part of this formula.
Delta tocotrienols support the body’s antioxidant levels together with PQQ. They do so, by promoting Nrf2, which regulates cellular antioxidant production.
