are the cellular energy generators that supply virtually all the power
your body requires for a healthy life span. An abundance of published
studies underscores the critical importance of the mitochondria to
overall health, especially as we age. Energy-intensive organs like the
heart and brain are dense with mitochondria. Until recently, the only
natural ways for aging individuals to increase the number of
mitochondria in their bodies were long-term calorie restriction or
exhaustive physical activitywhich are difficult or impractical for
most people to implement. PQQ offers a viable alternative.
enormous amount of energy generated within the mitochondria exposes
them to constant free radical attack. The resulting mitochondrial decay
is a hallmark of aging. PQQ protects and augments delicate
mitochondrial structures to promote youthful cellular function in three
- Antioxidant power. Like CoQ10, PQQ is a highly
potent antioxidant. Its extraordinary molecular stability enables it to
facilitate thousands of biochemical reactions in the mitochondria
without breaking down, for maximum antioxidant and bioenergetic support.
- Favorably modulates gene expression. PQQ activates genes that promote formation
of new mitochondriaand 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
- 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.

is an essential nutrient, meaning that your body cannot make it on its
own. A growing body of research indicates that PQQs unique nutritional
profile supports heart health and cognitive functionalone and in
combination with CoQ10. This comes as no surprise, given how much
energy these vital organs need.
shows that PQQ supports heart cell function in the presence of free
radicals and promotes blood flow in the heart muscle. When taken in
combination with CoQ10, just 20 mg per day of PQQ has been shown to
promote memory, attention, and cognition in maturing individuals.
Extension has identified a purified, highly potent form of PQQ from
Japan that is produced through a unique fermentation process. The
result is BioPQQ, the highest quality PQQ available on the market
