What is PQQ? Pyrroloquinoline quinone is a vitamin-like nutrient and an antioxidant.
As you age, your number of functional mitochondria declines. The benefits of PQQ include supporting the growth of brand-new mitochondria, which encourages healthy and youthful cellular energy. Moreover, it also helps protect the neurons (brain cells) and also promotes cardiovascular health.
In aging cells, mitochondria become damaged, trigger inflammation, and produce insufficient energy. Mitochondrial dysfunction is associated with many age-related health problems, including insulin resistance, macular degeneration, brain disorders, and joint pain.
PQQ (pyrroloquinoline quinone) is a compound that can promote the recycling of defective mitochondria and the creation of healthy, new mitochondria.
Benefits of PQQ
In preclinical research, PQQ helps protect the health of the brain and eyes, reduce blood sugar and cholesterol, defend against kidney and liver damage, combat osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, and more.
PQQ is sometimes referred to as a "longevity vitamin." In roundworms, a PQQ supplement increases lifespan by an average of 30%.
