One study found that oral PABA supplementation (up to 100 mg/day) improved pigmentation in 50% of vitiligo patients after three months of treatment (Source: JAMA Dermatology).

In this study, a topical PABA formulation applied to the skin of hairless mice prior to UV exposure resulted in reduced skin damage and inflammation (Source: Journal of Investigative Dermatology).

The Apexx01 Formula

Apexx01 is a high-end all-in-one dietary supplement. The Apexx01 formula is composed by orthomolecular doctor Rob Elens (MD), and is based on the latest scientific research.

The Ingredients

The ingredients are carefully selected to provide the perfect daily combination of micro- and macronutrients, with the main goal of enabling the "powerhouses" (mitochondria) to function in the body.

The Composition

The composition and dosages per ingredient are also selectively chosen, with only ingredients that harmoniously work together or positively influence each other and dosages that are proven to be effective and cannot be harmful in any way.

Clinically Tested

All ingredients have been clinically tested and are "GRASS," which stands for "Generally Recognized as Safe Substances." This term is used by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to describe food additives and other substances that are considered safe for consumption based on a long history of common use in food.


The key of Apexx01: Mitochondria support

With a focus on activating and supporting mitochondria, Apexx01 addresses everything from the cellular level. Mitochondria are the small ‘powerhouses’ in our cells responsible for producing energy. You can think of them as the batteries that power our bodies. Each cell in your body contains an average of 500 to 2,000 mitochondria, working 24/7 to convert nutrients into building blocks, or usable energy. This energy is then used to support all processes in our body, from the beating of our hearts to the execution of complex thought processes.

Proper functioning of mitochondria is essential for overall health, and dysfunction of mitochondria has been linked to various symptoms, as well as more serious diseases, including cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Maintaining healthy mitochondrial function is therefore crucial for optimal health and disease prevention.


How Apexx01 Works

Our philosophy is to focus on just one product that simply works, and that is based on what the latest science indicates as essential to human health. Consistency is the key to unlock the full potential of Apexx01. While most people start to feel the initial benefits within just a few days or weeks of use, the full potential truly reveals after about 3 months of consistent use. With just a little bit of Apexx01, you can make a big difference for your health.

Apexx01 addresses everything from the cellular level. By harnessing the power of antioxidants, Apexx01 not only optimizes mitochondrial function but also aids in detoxification. As your body absorbs the potent blend of antioxidants, it initiates a natural detoxification process, ridding itself of harmful toxins and impurities. This detox phase, while beneficial, may initially cause mild discomfort as your body adjusts. However, rest assured that it’s a sign of your body purifying itself and preparing for enhanced vitality and well-being.


Research: A Closer Look To Apexx01

Apexx01 is your go-to for maintaining or improving your health. Our latest research aimed to understand, and when, participants started to feel the effects of Apexx01 and what differences they exactly experienced. The results highlighted that Apexx01 serves as a foundation for individuals of all ages and walks of life. 91% of all participants reported feeling more energized – This was the most reported benefit. They also reported initial signs of illnesses that never materialized, showcasing the strength of their immune response. 64% of the participants claimed to have improved focus and concentration, improved sleep quality (90%), a better mood, regular bowel function, and enhanced mental and physical health.
