Supports Mitochondrial Biogenesis
PQQ Preserves Mitochondrial Function
- Antioxidant power. Like CoQ10, PQQ is a highly potent antioxidant.8,9 Its extraordinary molecular stability enables it to facilitate thousands of biochemical reactions in the mitochondria without breaking down, for maximum antioxidant and bioenergetic support.10
- Favorably modulates gene expression. PQQ activates genes that promote the formation of new mitochondria11 — 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.12
- 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 the mitochondrial defense.
PQQ is Essential for Whole-Body Support
Research shows that PQQ supports heart cell function in the presence of free radicals and promotes blood flow in the heart muscle.14,16 When taken with CoQ10, PQQ has been shown to promote memory, attention, and cognition in maturing individuals.
