PQQ Caps With BioPQQ
10 mg 30 vegetarian Capsules
Back in the early 1980s, Life Extension® was the first to introduce CoQ10 as a
method to enhance mitochondrial energy production. CoQ10 has since gained
universal scientific recognition for its role in supporting cellular performance
throughout the body.
Today, a major advance in combating cellular aging called PQQ (pyrroloquinoline
quinone) is being introduced. In an unprecedented breakthrough, researchers have
discovered that PQQ supports mitochondrial biogenesis—the spontaneous growth of
new mitochondria in aging cells!
Mitochondria are the cellular energy generators that supply virtually all the
power your body requires for a healthy life span. An abundance of published
studies underscores the critical importance of the mitochondria to overall
health, especially as we age.Energy-intensive organs like the heart and brain
are dense with mitochondria.
Until recently, the only natural ways for aging individuals to increase the
number of mitochondria in their bodies were long-term calorie restriction or
exhaustive physical activity—which are difficult or impractical for most people
to implement. PQQ offers a viable alternative.
The enormous amount of energy generated within the mitochondria exposes them to
constant free radical attack. The resulting mitochondrial decay is a hallmark of
aging. PQQ protects and augments delicate mitochondrial structures to promote
youthful cellular function in three distinct ways:
*Antioxidant power. Like CoQ10, PQQ is a highly potent antioxidant. Its
extraordinary molecular stability enables it to facilitate thousands of
biochemical reactions in the mitochondria without breaking down, for maximum
antioxidant and bioenergetic support.
*Favorably modulates gene expression. PQQ activates genes that promote formation
of new mitochondria7— and beneficially interacts with genes directly involved in
mitochondrial health. These same genes also support healthy body weight, normal
fat and sugar metabolism, and youthful cellular proliferation.
*Mitochondrial defense. Mitochondria possess their own DNA, distinct from the
DNA contained in the nucleus. Unfortunately, compared to nuclear DNA, the DNA
housed within each mitochondrion is relatively unprotected. PQQ’s antioxidant
potency and favorable gene expression profile act to support mitochondrial
PQQ is an essential nutrient, meaning your body cannot make it on its own. A
growing body of research indicates that PQQ’s unique nutritional profile
supports heart health and cognitive function—alone and in combination with
CoQ10.This comes as no surprise, given how much energy these vital organs need.
Research shows that PQQ supports heart cell function in the presence of free
radicals and promotes blood flow in heart muscle.When taken in combination with
CoQ10, just 20 mg per day of PQQ has been shown to promote memory, attention,
and cognition in maturing individuals.
Life Extension® has identified a purified, highly potent form of PQQ from Japan
that is produced through a natural fermentation process. The result is the
highest quality PQQ available on the market today called BioPQQ™.
A 10 mg dose of PQQ with BioPQQ™ has also been added to the Mitochondrial Energy
Optimizer and new Mitochondrial Essentials formulas.
