Getting the most out of every minute of every day requires efficient energy production at the cellular level. The unique Mito Caps formula maximizes this process by supporting and protecting mitochondria—the energy-producing organelles in cells—as they work to produce energy, neutralize free radicals, and combat age-related degeneration.

You’ll notice a non-stimulant increase in energy levels, along with a sense of stable health and wellness reminiscent of your youth. The cumulative benefits supplied by Mito Caps will positively affect every aspect of your life.

Help your body's mitochondria (the thousands of energy-producing "furnaces" in the cells) work more efficiently and stay healthier. One nutrition expert states, "The longer you can stimulate the lifespan or health of the mitochondria, the longer you will live and better you will perform in endurance events. The athlete who has the most healthy/efficient mitochondria is the athlete who performs at their best."

The two primary nutrients in the Mito Caps formula - acetyl l-carnitine and R-alpha lipoic acid - have numerous general health benefits. Therefore, every athlete or active person should take this product daily, all year round. Athletes desiring increased benefits can experiment with higher dosages.


Acetyl L-Carnitine – L-carnitine is a derivative of the amino acid lysine which has been found to restore key elements of mitochondrial energy production and cellular health. Additionally, it serves as the most important link in the production of energy from carbohydrates, protein (amino acids), and fats at the cellular level. It also helps to preserve lean muscle tissue by decreasing excess levels of cortisol.

R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA) – Is an essential cofactor for several multi-enzyme complexes that increase critical energy metabolism reactions inside the mitochondria of cells.

Commonly known as the “universal antioxidant,” R-ALA functions as both a water and fat-soluble antioxidant. For this reason, it is able to neutralize a wider variety of free radicals than any other, including those created by excess free metal ions such as iron and copper. It also plays a role in the regeneration of “used up” or oxidized antioxidants such as vitamins C & E, CoQ10, and glutathione, thus extending their capabilities.

Lastly, R-ALA is also believed to be involved in maintaining proper glucose metabolism by improving insulin sensitivity.

DMAE – Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) bitartrate stimulates the production of choline, which in turn allows the brain to optimize production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter involved in learning and memory. DMAE also enhances the function of acetyl L-carnitine and R-alpha lipoic acid.

Para-amino Benzoic Acid (PABA) – This intricate B-complex vitamin plays an important role in the formation of red blood cells and also functions as an antioxidant. While a potent nutrient in its own right, its primary role in this formula is to multiply and enhance the effects of acetyl L-carnitine and R-alpha lipoic acid.

Vitamin E & Vitamin B6 – Powerful antioxidants that help neutralize the free radicals naturally produced during energy production. These vitamins have numerous additional health benefits pertaining to the cardiovascular and circulatory systems, and support healthy energy production. They are included in this formula specifically to assist in the body’s use of DMAE and PABA.

Ascorbyl Palmitate – A non-acidic, fat-soluble form of vitamin C that has the ability to reach specific areas of tissue that standard vitamin C cannot. In addition to its antioxidant properties, ascorbyl palmitate enhances the bioavailability of carnitine.

Proprietary Enzyme Blend (amylase, lipase, and protease) – These enzymes help maximize absorption of all the nutrients in the product.

Voids in the fill of each capsule

Unlike previous shipments of Mito Caps, the most recent containers have capsules with voids. I am not sure if there is a fill change, different settling than all previous shipments or some other reason the capsules do not appear full as before. The last 2 containers have been like this.

The Jury is still out

I'm not a vitamin guy, but I thought I would round my nutritional needs with this product and Premium Insurance caps. I have been using both for approximately 2+ weeks. I don't feel any worse but do I feel better?? I don't know....

A Must Have

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My job is my endurance sport and am a woman in peri menopause where we as women start to naturally lose our energy and experience mental fogginess. I started taking this twice a day with my other daily Hammer staples and noticed it's benefits from the first dose. I'm seriously considering recommending the Mito Caps to my elderly dad to help him with energy and mental clarity. Maybe then he'll understand why I spend the money on these premium Hammer Nutrition products. Women even as a non "athlete" you can benefit from this product along with the Premium Insurance Caps as a one two punch to energy and filling the nutrient gaps in your nutrition.

Mito Caps live up to what they say

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am a teacher and this past school year, I took on added responsibility and gave up my prep period and ran two extra curricular activities (clubs) at lunch four of the five days a week. I had only Wednesdays at lunch for myself to regroup. All the while, I was training for a half marathon. The energy that I exerted all throughout the day was catching up with me in my training. Towards the end of my training I was out of energy. On Race Day, I switched from the half marathon to just be satisfied in running the offered 10K part of the race. I even struggled with the 10K towards the later part of the race. Two weeks, after the race, I was browsing through the products that Hammer offer and came across the product descriptions of the Premium Insurance Caps and Mito Caps. I decided to give them both a try. The Premium Insurance caps replaced my Multi-vitamin and the Mito Caps was an addition. It took me a week to 10 days to start feeling a difference. I was more energetic at school to deal with my workload and middle school kids and after a short break from running, I got back into training. I planned a "Runcation" in Orlando, Florida with the family to complete the Star Wars Weekend runs. I did the 5K, and 10K on Friday and Saturday with my son and daughter. On Sunday, I ran the half marathon and did well. I attribute the use of Mito Caps in combination with Premium Insurance caps in giving me the necessary energy to teach as well as to train. I continue to use both and will continue to use both. A late bout of flu hit our school the last two months of school and believe it or not, I did not get sick. I am very thankful. I highly highly recommend taking Mito Caps and I hope that it makes a difference for you like it has for me. Thank You HAMMER!!!

How many caps in a container of MITO CAPS?

Asked by Cy
Verified Reply - SteveThere are 90 capsules in each bottle of Mito Caps

How is this product different than COQ10? Thanks

Asked by Jack
Verified Reply - Hammer SteveCoenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is found in Race Caps Supreme. This nutrient can be thought of as a catalyst (think: spark plug) in the chain of events required to make energy efficiently from the oxygen you breath in and the calories you consume. CoQ10 is also a powerful antioxidant, so it not only assists the body in creating energy, it protects the cells from the damage that can occur from the oxidation process and free radical production that naturally occurs when producing energy. CoQ10 is considered to be a premier heart-healthy nutrient, that also provides numerous benefits for many other areas of human health. The two main nutrients in Mito Caps--R-alpha lipoic acid and acetyl l-carnitine--work at the end of the process, so to speak: the mitochondria, the energy producing furnaces within the cells. In studies, this nutrient combination was found to increase mitochrondrial energy production, while also protecting the mitochondria from free radical damage, decay, and aging. In a nutshell, the Mito Caps formula helps mitochondria work more efficiently and stay healthier. As Bill Misner, Ph.D., summarizes, "The longer you can stimulate the lifespan or health of the mitochondria, the longer you will live and the better you will perform in endurance events. The athlete who has the most healthy/efficient mitochondria is the athlete who performs at their best." The nutrients in Race Caps Supreme--which of course includes CoQ10--and the nutrients in Mito Caps perfectly complement each other, which is why we recommend daily use of both of these products. More detailed information about all of the nutrients in both Race Caps Supreme and Mito Caps can be found at:
