About MitoPharm

MitoPharm, Inc. is an active research & development biotechnology firm that will operate in marketing, and sale of drugs, dietary supplements, and functional beverages. The initial products are based on a newly formulated compound, (-) Schisandrin B, that is the result of over 15 years of research and development by one of its founding shareholders, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

Published scientific studies have confirmed that (-) Schisandrin B enhances the mitochondrial glutathione antioxidant status, a crucial factor in maintaining mitochondrial function and cell survival, plus it also induces the expression of heat shock proteins, another group of important molecules for cell protection. These biochemical actions differentiate (-) Schisandrin B from other existing, known compounds, either synthetic or naturally occurring, in its ability to protect organs including the heart, the liver, and the brain.
