Bod•ē TEN Clinical Synopsis
The goal of this study was to perform pilot clinical testing on the effects of a Bod•ē Pro, Inc. novel nutraceutical formula on human mitochondria at the cellular level, to help plan a clinical proof-of-concept trial. The nutraceutical formula, TEN, contains a number of ingredients, known to support mitochondrial functions. Mitochondria are intracellular organelles, responsible for producing cellular energy. They consist of membranous bodies that can either appear as oval bodies or as an interconnected web of tubes. Therefore, when evaluating the amount of mitochondria in a cell, this is discussed as mitochondrial mass per cell, rather than the number of mitochondria per cell.
