When British researchers at Cambridge University were looking for a cure for liver damage and accidentally created a cream they feel certain will be a powerful anti-ageing product.
MitoQ – which claims to soften the skin while lightening and actually reversing the signs of ageing – is a patented blend of unique ingredients, which scientists Mike Murphy and Rob Smith stumbled across while trying to find a cure for liver disease.
Their work culminated in the discovery of a delivery system that floods cells with antioxidants – health-giving molecules that inhibit oxygenation of cells – straight into the mitochondria, the source of free radicals, which are responsible for ageing and tissue damage.
Dr. Michael Murphy explains: “Mitochondria are like batteries that provide the energy that all of our cells need to operate and stay healthy, including skin cells.
“Unfortunately this process also releases free radicals, which actually damage our cells.
“Antioxidants are the body’s natural defense mechanism to combat free radicals, but ageing happens because as we get older our bodies produce fewer antioxidants and can’t fight free radicals as effectively. This is what causes wrinkles and lines to appear.”
They also claim: “This is a major scientific breakthrough that enhances our natural antioxidant capacity restoring our cells to optimal function.”
