Powerhouse | Cellular Health & Energy Formula : Claims & References

Our claims are based on 30+ years of NIH funded research all backed by science. We don't only say this, we support it. This is why we include a list of references so you can learn more about the powerful health effects of our supplements as well as fact check our claim that our statements can all be scientifically validated. 



  1. Supports mitochondrial function and adenosine triphosphate production (ATP) (Energy production).1,2,3
  2. Supports the repair of mitochondrial DNA deletions (MtDNA del)
  3. Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid have been shown to support healthy hearing in animal based studies
  4. In higher doses, ie three-four pills per day, supports a healthy brain
  5. Supports healthy aging
