New Science To Help Us Age Healthier? Yes, Please. #MitoQ

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of MitoQThe opinions and text are all mine.

If we're friends on Facebook you know that I just turned 39 last month. I embrace that. I look forward to making my last year in the 30's amazing and cruising into my 40's in style. I firmly believe in embracing our years. Our age. I believe in being the most amazing, healthy, fabulous US we can be at every age! I have no desire to be (or even look) 25 again.

But, I'm not going to lie. I feel it. I see it. I look in the mirror and notice those little lines. Spots. Hrmmm. So, when I was offered the opportunity to try out MitoQ supplements and skin cream I paused... I researched... I was intrigued!

I love this brand. I love their focus on healthy aging.
Yes. THAT.

A Little Info on MitoQ

MitoQ is a brand new type of antioxidant called a mitochondria-targeted antioxidant. MitoQ is a revolutionary new form of CoQ10 that targets mitochondria, your cellular batteries - it is scientifically proven to be 847 times more effective than CoQ10! This exciting new supplement was developed in New Zealand at Otago University, Dunedin. 

Why is MitoQ an important breakthrough? Because mitochondria are the tiny organelles in your cells that generate the energy your body needs to work well and this is the first time anyone has been able to deliver high levels of anti-oxidants to them. Keeping mitochondria healthy is one of the best things you can do for your health.

MitoQ has been extensively researched in America and around the world over the last decade and now is being made available to consumers. Research continues around the world and new research information will be coming out soon.

My Experience

First, I'll discuss the supplements. I took 2 every morning for about a month. Now, I am a long-time believer in CoQ10. I have taken it for years. So, when I read the info on this I was all in. While it's hard to review a supplement like this (it's not like caffeine or something you feel immediately, it's more underlying support), I can say after a month I feel like my energy levels are more even. Since going paleo my energy levels have been greatly improved, so this actually surprised me! It's definitely something I will continue taking.

Now onto the skin cream. First, a little info from their site:

MitoQ's patented technology delivers powerful antioxidant support to mitochondria, the power source of your skin's cells, restoring their vitality so they can fight the symptoms of aging.
  • For beautiful, healthy, younger looking skin in as few as 30 days
  • MitoQ works at the heart of the skin cell to rejuvenate and repair
  • New patented technology supports youthful collagen and elastin production
  • Clinically shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots
  • Hypoallergenic formula suitable for all skin types
Confession: I have been terrible with skincare. My skincare routine has been pretty much non-existent through my 30's. It shows.

I loved this cream. It takes care of all my pet peeves with skin creams. It doesn't stink, it doesn't burn or irritate my skin (seriously, I've had others actually burn), it's fine under foundation or makeup primer, it's not too heavy or greasy, and it's not too light so that you don't feel like it's helping. You can use your own moisturizer or other products with this, but I use it morning and night and don't find the need to use anything additional. It's perfect.

But, more importantly, have I seen any results with it? Yes. I've only been using it a month (I personally give skincare products 6 to 8 weeks before passing final judgement), but I feel like my skin looks generally smoothed out. Especially around my eyes! It's definitely something I will continue to use.

It even rates that coveted on-the-counter status.
