The body’s cells and organ systems depend on an adequate supply of energy to function optimally. The mitochondria,
known as the power house of the cell, contain nutrients and enzymes that are important for recharging cellular energy
production. Some of these enzymes convert food to usable energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP
functions as the key source of energy for all cells. In order to increase mitochondrial output, there must be adequate
fuel supply for combustion and abundant antioxidants to scavenge free radical by-products. Preserving energy reserves
and increasing energy output is a critical part of maintaining optimal health.
Lack of sleep, too much stress, poor nutrition and prescription medications can draw on energy reserves, using them up
faster than they can be replenished. Even the vital biologic systems can create an energy deficit that needs to be restored.

Some of the most energy demanding systems in the body are:
• Liver detoxification
• Immune function
• Cardiovascular function
• Neurologic function

MitoCORE® is scientifically formulated, based on published research, to boost mitochondrial reserves and recharge
cellular energy production.1

MitoCORE® includes the powerful antioxidant trio of alpha lipoic acid, N-acetyl cysteine and acetyl
L- carnitine, all shown to recharge cellular energy production and the primary cellular antioxidant pools of vitamins E and C
and glutathione.

Ingredient Benefits of MitoCORE®

Acetyl L-Carnitine

Acetyl L-carnitine (ALC) is an amino acid that is associated with increased energy production. It has been shown to increase the flow of free fatty acids, the fuel source for mitochondria, resulting in a significant boost in energy production. As we age, free radical production increases oxidative damage to the mitochondria, which can potentially decrease energy production. ALC has been shown to increase cellular energy (ATP) production and has been found, in combination with lipoic acid, to lower oxidative stress. Studies have also shown that ALC supports the immune response by protecting CD4 and CD8 immune cells and by supporting the reproduction of lymphocytes for the identification and elimination of invading antigens.

N-Acetyl Cysteine

N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is an antioxidant that scavenges free radicals and promotes liver detoxification. NAC has been shown to increase production of glutathione, an important antioxidant found in the body. In addition to its antioxidant activity, glutathione boosts the immune system by activating T-cells, helping to maintain immune balance.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a potent antioxidant and also plays a synergistic role in recharging other antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, CoQ10 and glutathione. Lipoic acid also plays a key role in detoxification. Studies have shown that a combination of ALA and acetyl L-carnitine helps minimize oxidative damage. Oxidative stress causes damage to DNA, RNA, proteins, mitochondrial membranes, and lipids and contributes to the functional decline of mitochondria, cells, tissues, and eventually organs such as the brain.


Resveratrol is a polyphenol molecule found in many plant species including grapes and cranberries and is found in high concentrations in wine. Polyphenols act as antioxidants that protect plants from damage that can be caused by bacteria, fungi, and radiation. Resveratrol is believed to be the dietary factor behind the “French Paradox” which is the high rate of cardiovascular wellness in the French population, despite their high fat intake. In addition to its antioxidant properties and support for cardiovascular function, resveratrol has been shown to support optimal immune function.

SGS™ Broccoli Seed Extract

Broccoli seed extract contains a high amount of glucoraphanin, a compound that is a precursor to sulphoraphane. Sulphoraphane is a potent antioxidant in the body and also supports detoxification and immune response. Sulphoraphane has been shown to induce Phase II detoxification enzymes and raise intracellular glutathione levels.

Green Tea (EGCG)

Green tea polyphenols have demonstrated significant antioxidant, probiotic and immune supporting properties. The hydroxyl group of green tea polyphenols supports antioxidant activity by forming complexes with free radicals and neutralizing them, minimizing oxidative damage throughout the body. Green tea polyphenols also stimulate the activity of liver detoxification enzymes, promoting the detoxification of harmful chemicals out of the body.


To increase cellular energy production efficiently, optimal levels of critical nutrients and enzyme cofactors must be achieved. MitoCORE® is a multivitamin with an optimized backbone of vitamins and minerals necessary for increasing energy output and meeting daily nutritional needs.

Mitocore supplies key mitochondrial micronutrients and a smart combination of alpha lipoic acid, N-acetyl cysteine, and acetyl L-carnitine to boost cellular energy production.*

Why Choose Ortho Molecular Products?

It is an understatement to say that there is wide variation in quality
among dietary supplements.

How many times have you read a news report revealing that a shocking percentage of products tested contained only a fraction of the ingredient potency they claimed to have…or a newspaper story about a supplement that was contaminated with heavy metals, or worse, adulterated with cheap material?

Following are just some of the steps Ortho Molecular Products takes to ensure the QUALITY of their formulas:

  • “We follow rigid SOPs (standard operating procedures) and MOPs (methods of procedure) throughout every stage of production, leaving nothing to chance.
  • We test all incoming raw materials in our state-of-the-art, in-house laboratory for identity (Is the material what it says it is?), purity (Does it contain any contaminants?), and composition (Does it match expected specifications?).
  • We mix all of our raw materials in dedicated blending rooms using a custom-made 5,000-liter mixer following strict protocols to ensure product consistency.
  • We manufacture every batch of product in dedicated tabletting and encapsulating rooms, which are thoroughly cleaned and dried after each batch is made to protect against cross-contamination. It can take up to eight hours just to clean one room!
  • We perform thorough post-cleaning inspections to ensure the highest state of sanitation has been achieved.
  • We test all finished products for identity (Does the formula contain the correct ingredients?), strength (Are the ingredients present in the potencies claimed?), and purity (Does the formula contain any contaminants?).
  • We subject every new formula to stability testing, which involves assaying ingredients to detect any degradation at 6-month intervals, thus ensuring the formula meets label claim at expiration.”

Ortho Molecular Manufacturers Their Own Products

These days, most dietary supplement companies are really sales and marketing firms. While they may formulate their own products, it is standard to outsource the manufacturing, laboratory testing, bottling, and labeling to a big contract manufacturer. The upside to this practice is that it’s convenient. The downside is that companies lose control to others that don’t share the same passion for the quality of the products.


Ortho Molecular Products is unique in that we operate our own 100,000-square-foot, cGMP, FDA-audited manufacturing facility that is based in Stevens Point, Wisconsin and staffed by highly trained personnel who share a passion for efficacy. Because we control the entire production process — from formulation…to raw materials sourcing…to manufacturing…to laboratory testing of incoming materials and finished product…to bottling and labeling — we are free to be perfectionists.

Our manufacturing facility is strictly controlled by rigorous standards that meet cGMPs, and it routinely passes FDA and third-party audits. Extensive testing on every product we manufacture means you can trust the consistent purity, strength, identity, and composition of each and every Ortho Molecular Products formula.

It’s rare for a supplement company to handle all phases of production. But when your standards are as high as ours, you don’t want to entrust it to anyone else.
