PQQ Caps with BioPQQ® , Pyrroloquinoline Quinone PQQ Caps with BioPQQ®

PQQ Caps with BioPQQ®

The enormous amount of energy generated within the mitochondria exposes them to constant free radical activity. 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 mitochondria 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, mitochondrial DNA are relatively unprotected. PQQ's antioxidant potency and favorable gene expression profile act to support mitochondrial defense.

    PQQ has been shown to help:

    • Promote the healing of injured nerves
    • Protect against oxidative damage which is one of the key factors leading to neurodegenerative diseases
    • Improve brain function
    • Increase learning ability
    • Improve memory
    • Reduce ischemic damage
    • Reduce Neuroinflammation
    • Protect against oxidative damage
    • Prevent glucose induced brain damage
    • Protect against excitotoxicity (excessive glutamate stimulation of brain cells). This is a major factor in the development of long-term neurodegenerative disorders.

    PQQ is an essential nutrient, meaning that 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 the heart muscle. When taken in combination with CoQ10, 20 mg per day of PQQ has been shown to promote memory, attention, and cognition in maturing individuals.

    While it has been clinically shown that 20 mg of PQQ are necessary to effectively support cognitive function, 10 mg of PQQ or even less has been clinically shown to induce mitochondrial biogenesis (growing new mitochondria) for more youthful cellular energy output.

    Life Extension uses a purified, highly potent form of PQQ from Japan that is produced through a unique fermentation process. The result is BioPQQ®, the highest quality PQQ available on the market today.


    DIRECTIONS: Take one capsule once or twice daily with or without food, or as recommended by a healthcare.


    Other Ingredients: rice bran, vegetable cellulose (capsule), silica.
