PQQ (pyrroloquinoline quinone) is a nutrient that promotes the production of new mitochondria. PQQ promotes youthful cellular function in three distinct ways:
- Promotes mitochondrial biogenesis. PQQ activates genes that promote the formation of fresh mitochondria. It also beneficially interacts with genes directly involved in mitochondrial health. These same genes support healthy body weight, normal fat and sugar metabolism and youthful cellular proliferation.
- Mitochondrial defense. Mitochondria possess their own DNA, distinct from those contained in the cell nucleus. Unfortunately, compared to nuclear DNA, mitochondrial DNA are relatively unprotected and yet situated at the source of both energy and free-radical production. PQQ's antioxidant potency and favorable gene expression profile act to support mitochondrial defense.
- Antioxidant power. PQQ is a potent antioxidant. Its extraordinary molecular stability enables it to facilitate thousands of antioxidant reactions in the mitochondria without breaking down for maximum antioxidant and bioenergetic support.
The cellular energy support these nutrients provide benefits your heart, brain, kidneys and all the other cells in your body which require high levels of energy to function properly.
