Cell’s energy, the key to vitality!
Cell’s energy is the key to vitality. The energy required for the proper functioning of your body is produced in each of your cells by parts of the cell, called “mitochondria.” Acting like small “power plants,” mitochondria produce energy for the cell through an energy conversion process called ‘cellular respiration.’
In cellular respiration, the cell produces energy by using oxygen (delivered by the blood to the cell) to “burn” or break down nutrients such as glucose in a series of biochemical reactions. The generated energy is stored in a molecule of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), indispensable to power all the cell’s activities.
The energy produced by cellular respiration and stored in ATP is vital as it allows our body to execute its many tasks: move, breathe, assimilate our food, defend ourselves against infections, and more. We need cellular vitality to be healthy.
What happens when people experience a decline in energy production? This is for example the case of people with type 2 diabetes. Their pancreas functions less efficiently and does not deliver enough of the insulin hormone responsible for glucose to penetrate into the cells. With a decreased amount of energy generated and stored in ATP, people with diabetes are faced with an overall fatigue. They also have an increased susceptibility to infections. As their very defense cells – the white cells – have less energy like all their other cells, their immune system declines and does not protect them efficiently.
A published clinical study carried out at Ohio State University (see reference) has shown how Immun’Âge® can increase the production of the cell’s energy in people with diabetes. Indeed, it demonstrates that the sugars present in Immun’Âge® have the property of penetrating into cells even with an absence of insulin. Immun’Âge® can be recommended to people with type 2 diabetes: It will help them to fight their fatigue, and it also will enable them to improve their immune defenses.
As a vitality enhancer, Immun’Âge® can help you if you feels physically or psychologically exhausted, if you are ill, or if you need more energy to handle every day’s business.
