PQQ Exciting New Mitochondrial Support

Mitochondria health is a key factor in delaying and limiting cellular aging. Muscle cells of a 90 year old man may have only 5% healthy mitochondria as compared to nearly 100% for a young child. Mitochondria damage can be linked to many degenerative diseases.

Up till recently we worked to prevent mitochondria damage by using antioxidants like L-carnitine, alpha lipoic acid, and CoQ10.

However, mitochondria damage can be reversed by a new compound call pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ).  PQQ is a substance that could be considered a vitamin, as the body can’t produce it by itself. PQQ is found in foods such as green tea, parsley, green peppers, kiwi fruit and papayas.  PQQ boosts mitochondrial bio-genesis in the body. Supplementation with PQQ could be a big breakthrough in reversing cellular aging and represent a real hope for diseases linked to mitochondria degeneration.

PQQ appears to activate specific genes in the body related to cellular energy metabolism.  PQQ is a very powerful antioxidant that serves to protect the mitochondria. It is at least 30 – 5000 times more effective than other antioxidants in protecting the mitochondria.

PQQ Dosage

Usually the recommended dosage of PQQ  per day is 10-20 mg which has been shown to be a safe therapeutic dose. 10-20 mg will give you more than the optimal dose and may have other clinical therapeutic benefits.

PQQ Co-Factors

PQQ works best when combined with other protective nutrients such as L-carnitine and alpha lipoic acid. Co-Q10 works synergistically with PQQ in mitochondria energy metabolism.

Life Extension makes a PQQ cap that contains the trademarked BioPQQ. It comes in a 10mg dosage and 30 capsules.

PQQ is included in Pure Encapsulations SR-CoQ10 with PQQ 60 VegiCaps. This gives you the ability to combine PQQ with the synergetic Co-Q10.

PQQ is one of the most exciting supplements to be introduced recently. There has been a great deal of research into its use and I expect we will see a lot more.

    I have to try this and see if it helps my energy…I’m tired all the time.

  7. So that’s why L-carnitine is famous on drinks that promote losing weight. It activates metabolism in our body. People who are aging should try this supplement.
