PQQ Complex or Pyrroloquinoline quinone combined with CoQ10
The latest advance in the area of mitochondrial bioenergetics is the coenzyme PQQ. As you age, your mitochondria begin to die and by age 67, you lose 80% of the mitochondria you had at age 25. Mitochondrial dysfunction has been definitively linked to virtually all killer diseases of aging, from Alzheimer’s disease, type 2 diabetes and heart failure. A single cell in your body can contain between 200 to 2,000 mitochondria, with the largest number found in the most metabolically active cells, like those in your brain, heart and skeletal muscles.
PQQ has also been shown to protect memory and cognition in both aging animals and humans. It stimulates production and release of nerve growth factor in cells that support neurons in the brain. PQQ activates genes that govern mitochondrial reproduction, protection, and repair. PQQ helps improve immediate memory as well as higher brain functions.
This formula also contains Vitamin B-12 and Acetyl-L-Carnitine
Cautions / Interactions: Acetyl-L-Carnitine may interact with warfarin and acenocoumerarol. If you are taking either of these medications, consult your healthcare practitioner before using this product.
Published studies show that 20 mg of PQQ plus 30 mg of CoQ10 may reverse age-related cognitive decline.
