What is PQQ? Pyrroloquinoline quinone is a vitamin-like nutrient and an antioxidant.
The energy-generating factories of your cells are called mitochondria. As you age, your number of functional mitochondria declines. 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.
Benefits of PQQ
- Aiding brand-new mitochondria growth for healthy, youthful cellular energy
- Helping protect the neurons (brain cells)
- PQQ can promote cardiovascular health
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.
In roundworms, a PQQ supplement increases lifespan by an average of 30%. In fact, the potential benefits of PQQ are so extraordinary, that one of the world’s leading nutritional scientists has called it a "longevity vitamin"!References
