Can children drink the CARE Drink without any problems?

Children can safely consume our CARE Drink, as well as the sugars it contains. These are tooth-friendly and provide children with energy and the desired sweetness in a gentle way.


Can I use D-tagatose as a diabetic?

D-Tagatose can also be used very well by diabetics and is an ideal sugar alternative that sweetens well without having a noticeable effect on blood sugar levels. However, diabetics should note that tagatose contributes only slightly to the sugar supply due to its low absorption. To avoid hypoglycemia and to supply the body evenly with glucose (dextrose), the combination of D-tagatose with trehalose, galactose or isomaltulose is recommended, especially for insulin-dependent diabetics.


Can I use galactose as a diabetic?

Galactose offers a good sugar alternative, especially for diabetics, and is also recommended by many diabetologists. As early as the 1930s, when there were still few therapeutic options available, doctors at the Charité hospital in Berlin successfully treated diabetes patients with galactose as a sugar substitute. [6] Since then, galactose has proven its worth in diabetes therapy many times over.
A major problem in type 2 diabetes (adult-onset diabetes) is the insulin resistance of the cells. The hormone insulin normally acts like a key that opens the door for glucose into the muscle and fat cells. Glucose can flow into the cells for energy, causing the blood glucose level to drop. If these cells no longer respond sufficiently to the insulin signal, as in the case of type 2 diabetes, glucose remains in the blood and the blood sugar level is permanently elevated. At the same time, despite a high supply of sugar in the blood, the cells become depleted of energy and have to cover their energy needs extensively by breaking down fat. In the process, so-called ketone bodies accumulate, which lead to ketoacidosis and, in the worst case, to a ketoacidotic coma, which is feared in diabetes.


Galactose offers the advantage that it reaches the cells independently of insulin. The blood sugar level remains largely balanced and the cells continue to be supplied with energy from sugar. At the same time, galactose does not contribute to the release of further insulin hormone and thus spares the pancreas.


[6] Kosterlitz, H.; Wedler, H. W. (1933): Untersuchungen über die Verwertung der Galaktose in physiologischen und pathologischen Zuständen. Z. Ges. Exp. Med. 87 (1): 397-404.


Can I use isomaltulose as a diabetic?

Isomaltulose is also suitable for diabetics as part of their nutritional therapy. Isomaltulose puts less strain on the blood sugar level than conventional household sugar, thus saving insulin and relieving the pancreas. Due to the slow and steady supply of glucose, isomaltulose also prevents hypoglycemia.


Do I need to refrigerate the CARE Drink?

The CARE Drink does not require refrigeration. To give you the absolute freshness kick, we recommend that you chill the CARE Drink before consuming it.


Does D-tagatose affect my blood sugar level?

No. Due to the low and also very slow absorption, only little D-tagatose enters the bloodstream. There is no significant rise in blood sugar and no associated high insulin release. D-Tagatose therefore has a very low glycemic index of just 3% (compared to glucose with a glycemic index of 100%). [5]


[5] Atkinson, Fiona S.; Foster-Powell, Kaye; Brand-Miller, Jennie C. (2008): International tables of glycemic index and glycemic load values: 2008. Diabetes Care 31 (12): 2281-2283.


Does D-tagatose damage my teeth?

D-Tagatose is tooth-friendly. It is not metabolised by cavity-causing bacteria and thus does not contribute to acid formation in the mouth. Targeted studies by the University of Zurich found no influence of tagatose on cavity formation. [2][3]

Does D-tagatose promote intestinal flora?

There is scientific evidence that D-tagatose has a probiotic effect. In contrast to the oral flora, some types of bacteria in the intestinal flora can use tagatose as a food source. Various lactobacilli and some other lactic acid bacteria can ferment the sugar and form short-chain fatty acids such as butyric acid (butyrate) from it. 5. On the one hand, this promotes the growth of beneficial intestinal germs. On the other hand, studies have shown that butyrate produced by the intestinal flora supplies the intestinal cells with energy and has a health-promoting effect on them. [4]


[4]Leonel, Alda J.; Alvarez-Leite, Jacqueline I. (2012): Butyrate: implications for intestinal function. Curr Opin Clin Nutr Metab Care 15


Does galactose have a laxative effect if I consume it in large quantities?

Galactose is almost completely absorbed by the body and does not have a laxative effect when consumed in conventional amounts. Consumption in unusually high amounts of sugar is not recommended, even with galactose.


Does trehalose affect my blood sugar level?

Trehalose is enzymatically broken down into its two glucose building blocks in the small intestine. However, these enter the bloodstream relatively slowly.


The enzyme trehalase is widely distributed over the mucous membrane of the small intestine. Consequently, the digestion of trehalose takes place over a longer period of time, during which the released glucose only enters the bloodstream in bits and pieces. The blood sugar level rises significantly less than with pure glucose. The insulin release is also lower after the consumption of trehalose than after the consumption of glucose or sucrose 3. However, the exact glycemic index is difficult to determine, as the absorption speed and effect on the blood sugar level depends on the individual trehalase activity.


How can I achieve the best possible result?

The best result is achieved with a long-term consumption of both drinks. We recommend you start with our 30-day cell cure.


How can I strengthen my intestinal flora and thus positively influence even my skin appearance in the long run?

The contained tagatose forms so-called butyrates. Butyrates are short-chain fatty acids that are produced in the large intestine. They support the formation of good bacteria. Their prebiotic properties promote a good pH value, feed our intestinal bacteria and thus create a stable intestinal flora. A healthy gut can improve your skin's appearance in the long run. We recommend starting with a 30-day cell cure.


How do sugars affect dental health?

Smart sugars are tooth-friendly and provide sweetness and energy in a way that is gentle on teeth. So they can easily be used to make energy-giving foods and drinks that cause little or no damage to children's teeth.


How many calories does a CARE drink have?

A 250 mL can of the CARE drink contains 47.50 kcal.


Is D-Tagatose also suitable for lactose intolerance, fructose intolerance or celiac disease?

In conventional quantities (1-2 teaspoons per meal), D-Tagatose is well tolerated and also suitable for lactose intolerance and celiac disease. However, as D-tagatose is largely utilised in the large intestine, to be on the safe side we recommend only using the sugar if there are currently no intestinal complaints as a result of successful nutritional therapy.


Despite the structural similarity to fructose, D-tagatose is absorbed in the intestine via a different pathway (passive diffusion) and does not influence fructose absorption. D-Tagatose is tolerated by most people with intestinal fructose intolerance. Nevertheless, we recommend testing the individual tolerance of D-tagatose by initially taking small amounts in case of very severe fructose intolerance.


(Note: intestinal fructose intolerance must not be confused with the very rare hereditary fructose intolerance, for which D-tagatose is basically unsuitable).


Is D-tagatose natural?

D-Tagatose is a natural sugar found in nature in some fruits and in processed dairy products. Notable amounts are found for example in apples, pineapples and oranges, and in smaller amounts in heated cow's milk and in fermented products such as yoghurt. [1]


[1] Rymon Lipinski, Gert-Wolfhard von (2007): Handbuch Süssungsmittel. Properties and application. Hamburg: Behr's Verlag. 2nd, fully revised edition.


Is the CARE Drink suitable for my diet?

Rich in vitamins and fibre, our CARE Drink is a great addition to your diet - no pills required. One can contains our smart sugar blend, making it suitable for low carb and keto diets. Also suitable for people with diabetes, lactose and fructose intolerance.


Is the CARE Drink vegan?

The CARE Drink is not vegan. Galactose and tagatose are obtained from milk using fermentation.


Is trehalose natural?

Trehalose is a natural sugar and has always been part of our diet. The main food sources are edible mushrooms, which is why the sugar is sometimes referred to as mushroom sugar or obsoletely as mycose. Trehalose is also found in honey, in crustaceans such as lobster, shrimp and prawns, and in products made with yeast, such as bread and beer. In prehistoric times, when humans resorted to protein sources from the insect kingdom as well, trehalose intake was still much higher than today1. It is therefore not surprising that we even have an extra enzyme for its digestion in our intestines.
The food industry is now also taking advantage of the high temperature stability of trehalose and uses the starch-derived sugar in ice cream, for example.


What does pasteurisation mean?

Pasteurisation is a short-term process in which the product to be treated is heated to between 60 and 90 degrees Celsius. This serves to kill microorganisms, such as unwanted germs or pathogenic bacteria.


What does the CARE Drink taste like?

With the concentrated load of polyphenol-rich grapes and the special blend of cola nut and cassis, our drink has a completely new taste composition. The flavour combines acai, rooibos, baobab as well as goji and provides with this combination a fruity mix, which is also very popular with our children.


What is a concentrate?

A liquid in which a specific ingredient is contained in a highly concentrated form.


What is an extract?

An extract is always only the essence of a certain substance, thus it cannot be the entire pulverised fruit bunch. A concentrate is the whole from which the liquid has been extracted, therefore a concentrate is equivalent to the description: pulverised fruit.


What is the difference between the MITO & CARE Drink?

The MITO drink provides you with the energy and micronutrients for the day, so we recommend drinking the drink in the late morning or for the famous afternoon low. The CARE drink helps you regenerate your cells and is therefore ideal for the late afternoon to evening.


What is the effect of isomaltulose during sport?

Due to the slower glucose production from isomaltulose compared to sucrose (household sugar), the body is supplied with sugar energy more evenly and over a longer period of time. This can be an advantage especially in strength and endurance sports.
Due to the lower blood sugar load and the consequently lower insulin level 2, the use of isomaltulose instead of sucrose or glucose also supports fat burning (fat oxidation). Insulin represents an inhibitory factor that significantly slows down fat oxidation with other high-glycemic sugars. The lower insulin release with isomaltulose has less of an effect on fat burning and thus also improves the "after-burn" phase [9]


[9] West, Daniel J. et al. (2011): Isomaltulose Improves Postexercise Glycemia by Reducing CHO Oxidation in T1DM. Med Sci Sports Exerc 43 (2): 204-210.


What is the effect of the CARE Drink on children?

The CARE Drink provides important ingredients for the growing cells and is also tooth-friendly. In addition, the energy supply remains stable for the little ones.


When is the best time to drink the CARE Drink?

We recommend drinking the CARE drink in the late afternoon to evening. The drink is intended for your regeneration and to recharge your mitochondria, the power plants of your cells.


Where do the cans come from?

The cans are manufactured in the immediate vicinity in Frankfurt. This ensures that the entire process involves the shortest possible transport routes and that production takes place in Germany.


Where is the CARE Drink available?

You can buy the CARE Drink at our MITOcare Store in Munich or here on our website or at mitocare.de.
We are working flat out to make sure that we will soon be available in other cities and in stores.


Who produces the CARE Drink?

We work here with our cooperation partner Dr. rer. nat Johannes F. Coy and EB Secco. The small family business fills the drink for us in cans.


Why are cans really sustainable?

Our can consists of 100% recyclable aluminium. The processing of the cans requires significantly less energy than the processing of used glass. Light and thin material means more efficient transport and less weight and therefore less greenhouse gases and a very positive environmental balance. Fast cooling is easily possible - all other materials actually take much longer to cool. This means much less electricity consumption. The recycling process is without loss of substance and quality - quite different from plastic.


Why are we not certified organic?

The quality of our vitamin mixture, which we use in this high concentration, is not available certified organic.


For organic certification, we would have to change our special and complex recipe, which would mean that we would no longer be able to meet our quality standards.


Why don't we use plastic bottles?

Cans are much more hygienic to fill because they can be sterilised at higher temperatures compared to plastic. In addition, transparent material is unfavourable for light-sensitive vitamins, such as vitamin C.


Why is galactose also called brain sugar?

Galactose is a beneficial energy source for brain and nerve cells due to its insulin-independent absorption and utilisation.


Similar to muscle cells, brain cells can also be affected by insulin resistance. In this case, the insulin receptors, i.e. the antennae on the cell surface that receive the insulin signal, are disturbed and hardly transmit the signal for glucose uptake into the cell. The glucose influx into the brain cells is suppressed and the brain suffers from a lack of energy. This can contribute to poor concentration and memory difficulties, but also to serious dementia symptoms such as Alzheimer's disease [7,8].


Galactose can be absorbed by the brain and nerve cells and used for energy production even in cases of insulin resistance. This secures the energy supply and prevents losses in concentration, coordination and memory. At the same time, the consumption of galactose only leads to a low insulin release and thus barely contributes to a further worsening of insulin resistance.

Why is the CARE Drink offered in a can?

To protect all our high-quality nutrients, an opaque container is essential. Vitamins in particular are very sensitive to light.


Will isomaltulose harm my teeth?

Isomaltulose is a tooth-friendly sugar. Cavity-promoting bacteria cannot convert it into acids that would attack the tooth enamel. Isomaltulose therefore has no influence on the formation of cavities.
