MITO2MAX Energy & Stamina Complex

The “energy” for life comes from within the mitochondria of each of our cells. As we age, our body’s mitochondrial function becomes less efficient. This leaves us with lower levels of energy and more toxic cellular exhaust. Some people try to boost their energy levels through caffeine and other stimulants that can provide a quick buzz, but often leave us feeling worse.

  • standardized plant extracts and metabolic cofactors that supports healthy cellular energy production 
  • supports optimal mitochondrial function, aerobic capacity (efficient use of oxygen), and stamina naturally without the use of harmful stimulants 
  • healthy, long-term alternative to caffeinated drinks and supplements for increased energy and vitality
  • supports metabolic adaptation for diverse activities, from movie watching to marathon running
  • improves mental energy
