Energy Recharge by Douglas Laboratories provides stimulant-free energy support from bioactive polyphenols. Robuvit®, a patented plant extract from oak wood, helps to facilitate mitochondrial turnover and is combined with CoQ10, vitamin B5, and curcumin for metabolic energy.
- Cellular energy for general fatigue
- Antioxidant support
Functions and Mechanism of Action
Oak wood contains a specific profile of bioactive polyphenols named roburins that are part of the ellagitannins (ETs). Robuvit® is standardized and specified to contain at least 40% polyphenols including grandinin, ellagic acid (EA) and gallic acid extracted from the wood of oak. Ellagitannins in oak are metabolized by the microflora of the gut to urolithins.
Urolithins have also been shown to support mitophagy and generation of new mitochondria for energy production. Preliminary human data with oak extract showed reduced oxidative stress markers, including advanced oxidation protein products and lipoperoxides in serum, as well as support for total antioxidant capacity and activities of antioxidant enzymes, Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase and catalase in red blood cells.
